    Straightforward, synergistic, and pretty cheap to build. Just grab those junk-rare dragons, a bunch of ramp spells, and go!

    I'm adding Banishing Light, Gnarled Scarhide, and Mana Confluence. 3 cards from a small set that is 360 power level isn't bad at all. I think it's a pretty good set.


    Exact same cards I am adding to my 360 cube.

    Am cutting duress, icy manipulator, and journey to nowhere for them.

    A few questions about uwr twin in today's current metagame:
    -is it viable right now with whats going on with a list similar to rivera's?
    -is wall of omens a card I really want to be playing right now? Sure, it is very good value but it hasn't been good for me in any real matches as the card is good against zoo, marginal against other twin decks, pod and bg(x) decks and only a cantrip against affinity, scapeshift, combo decks etc. It just seems like it isn't that great right now.


    I went from Tarmo to UWR. I like how stable the UWR version is with all the control and burn elements, and all-round good cards. Just feels like a better UWR control/midrange to me.

    Wall of omens is still very good imo.

    Nice report Patrick! It is sure to help everyone looking to play the deck.


    Can you post you List please?

    I don't think cube is the home for him. He's much better in standard human decks and modern pod decks.

    Good list lantern. I am thinking of playing your list over the big zoo deck which I've been playing for a long while.

    Build your own deck? It seems that you just don't want to play an established deck and want to play something of your own creation.

    Mashing together a good curve of aggro creatures from whatever color makes for a pretty decent deck.

    Hi, I think almsot every single one of us here has had this situation before, unless you're one of those players who have been playing non-stop since Alpha.

    For starters, read up on the format you want to play. If you are going to play standard for example, take a look at the cards that are legal so you don't look out of place with your Jace deck at a standard event. If they play EDH, make sure your deck is properly constructed. If they draft, make sure you know what the rules are and get yourself familiarized with the cards in the set so that you don't take too long. Ask the shop owner what the popular format is for players in the shop and go read up on that.

    Once you have a grasp of the format, it's time to invest in a deck. I would suggest looking at the budget sections of this forum so that you can start buying singles to form a relatively cheap but competitive deck.

    After that, just bring your deck down to play. Be honest with the players that you are new and am coming back to the game after a long hiatus. I'm sure most of them will be friendly enough to show you the ropes and play a few games with you.

    After all that, just keep reading up on the decks that are good in the format, investing in singles etc.

    Linvala is a catchall against not just the pod and kiki decks, but decks where you want a 3/4 flyer (e.g. Jund).

    If you don't want to play her torpor orb is of course a good option.
