Quote from WickedApp »I started off with prized Amalgam in a Grix. I totally agree it is a bad H1 design. With out Loot we are a slower H1.
Quote from Mitico »I tried the deck with 4 skelemental 2 unearth and 2 faerie macabre and think the looting ban is not a huge problem. Is a huge Card but only activates T1 hollow one with a street wraith ... Now with the faerie we do the same. The unearths and skelemental packs make deck more aggressive with more big threats ,and we can carry a full set of goblin lore and burning Inquiry, without be afraid of discard a big creature.
I tried a grixis version with izzet amulet and prizeds amalgam,but it's like a bad dredge... more midrange, it's not for this deck IMO.
Quote from WickedApp »I made similar changes +3 skelementals, +2 unearth, - 1 phoenix. I have been wondering if ramping with the deck might be better/easier now?

Quote from MagicMasterJr »What is everyone's opinion on running mana rocks like Mox Diamond, Mana Crypt, Mana Vault and Grim Monolith? Possibly for a faster start?
