UB Mannequin (Block)
« on: September 09, 2008, 10:43:46 PM »
Sunken Ruins x 4
Mutavault x 3
Reflecting Pool x 4
Secluded Glen x 4
Island x 5
Swamp x 5

River Kelpie x 3
Soul Snuffers x 3
Shriekmaw x 4
Mulldrifter x 4
Sower of Temptation
Puppeteer Clique x 2
Fulminator Mage x 3
Vendillion Clique

Makeshift Mannequin x 4
Cryptic Command x 4
Faerie Trickery x 2
Raven's Crime x 4

The point of the deck is to have a lot of fun with Mannequins and River Kelpies. You draw tons of cards, play lots of stuff from the graveyard and blast lots of stuff with your beaters. Puppeteers can be fun if they've got a Shriekmaw, or your Shriekmaws are fun, or your Mulldrifters, or Fulminators are there to knock them back a notch or two in the mana curve.

I don't like Fullminator Mages that much. Quick n' Toast relies a lot on early tempo, AND acceleration, thus playing Wall of Roots , Storage Lands and no Mutavaults at all. I'm not sure it can fully make the transition into block, since it loses A LOT of cards, but I think it DEFINITLY needs Kitchen Finks, at least as a kind of speed bump, if nothing else, in place of the Walls. It should also play 4 copies of Firespout, and at least 1-2 Cloudthresher, he's that good. Vendilion Clique is early tempo and disruption, so you need to actually draw it early to make it relevant. It also has a single toughness, so it dies horribly a lot of times, thus playing more copies of it or none at all qould be adviseable. I'd probably pack more Vivid Lands in order to branch out into other colors, and I'd most likely play Colossus AND/OR Garruk AND/OR Fertile Ground (to make up for the color-fixing and acceleration the pains and storage lands provide), and would possibly lose Faerie Trickery for Broken Ambitions (and play a full set), it suits Rune Snag's role better.
Of course, you could just forget all this advice and change the deck's name to UB Mannequin or something like that... ;)

I'd lose the Druids for Fertile Ground, and possibly add in Garruk. I'd also drop Clique, one-of is simply not good enough to make it.

Dropped Vendilion already, realized I had 61 cards. I only had him in there b/c I couldn't find another good 1-of.

Well, tested the quick n toast and it died miserably to faeries, got mana screwed on mulligan down to 5, and then came back and toasted rogues massively with a Firespouts/Threshers and beat him down pretty good. He slammed me hard and early down to 5 with him at 20, and I won sitting at 3 (Cloudthresher). So, ya, I still need some work mana-ramping.

Garruk + Fertile Ground. Enough said. ;)
