Well, the "remove a time counter" thing is a mandatory action, so yes, you HAVE to remove one each turn (but still, itís plenty of time, and after all, it doesnít make THAT much of a difference to play 1 spell ons econd turn, or to suspend the wheel and play 2 on third turn anyway), so even if you forget to do it during the upkeep, youíd get to do it as soon as you remembered it (but you WOULD get a warning in a tournamente, actually, you AND your opponent for not remembering you to do so), however, there are cards like Timecrafting that allows you to tamper with itís speed a bit. But mind you, itís still not THE ULTIMATE solution (btw, the deck lacks a sideboard, you should add one), since you go on emptying your hand, and just when itís about to resolve, BAM, you opponent plays Remand on it. Itís now back in your hand (meaning 4 MORE turns, thus timecrafting to tamper with it a little and catch them off guard). Iíd still use it, though, but Iíd keep some Howling Mines in the sb (as opponentís wonít usually counter it anyway).

I didnít get the part about rating. You mean the article? As I said, Iíve already read some stuff about burn decks íround here, and one even used the same combo idea, so thatíd keep me off of giving it a five, unless it turned out into somehting REALLY amazing. And also, as I also said, I "basically" played this deck, and it just doesnít work all that great... (Heartbeat Combo was essentially better in the end, specially with Ignorant Bliss added in to achieve hellbent out of the blue) But perhaps with Wheel of Fate and Howling Mines it could work.

Sorry, but Browbeat is not tradeable, so far, although I might have one to spare lost somewhere in my room. If I can find it, Iíll let you know! Wink

Hey are there more cards like Wheel of Fate besides the ones you mentioned

From the top of my head, TIme Spiral has a full cycle of them: Lotus Bloom (colorless), Wheel of Fate (red), Hypergenesis (green), Ancestral Vision (blue), Restore Balance (white) and Living End (black), and there was one in the Kamigawa block which could only be spliced into other arcane spells, but I canít remember itís name right now. Perhaps physcosick will know it by heart, be sure to ask him.

But before tampering with them, ask about rules, ícause theyíre a bit tricky, specially for newer players. Wink
