There are two kinds of Magic games: casual games for fun, and competitive tournament games. The first kind is what we all start out playing. As we grow more aware of the game on all its levels, some of us try to move into tournament games. This can be a very tricky transition. It's been said that you can never go back. Well, I'm here to help.
First things first, I want to thank you for taking the time to look this over. Any help you can give would be appreciated. I’ve been playing MtG for about nine years now off and on, but I just recently decided to play a tournament. I want his deck to be a contender if possible. Please build for any format that this deck could play in and have a chance of winning. Quick note. I already plan on adding more glimpse’s and more royal assassin’s, so unless you think they don’t belong, I will add more as I get my hands on them. Here’s the deck:
Dark Ritual x4
Glimpse the Unthinkable x1
Copy Enchantment x3
Followed Footsteps x2
Szadek, Lord of Secrets x1
Circu, Dimir Lobotomist x3
Dimir Cutpurse x2
Mindleech Mass x2
Silver Myr x4
Vedalken Entrancer x3
Royal Assassin x1
Urza’s Filter x2
The deck is not as slow as it used to be, but I know that it lacks the speed necessary to be competitive. My problem is that I don’t want to abandon the theme of milling/creature stealing, which is why I have all of those enchantments. However, any suggestions will be taken to heart. Again, thanks for your time.
I'll do everything I
can, of course. Now, my first
impulse was to try and make it
Standard legal, but that would
mean taking out Lobotomy and
Recoil. Since those are some of
the best black/blue cards in the
game, I'll make it Extended
legal instead. So the first step
is to take out all the cards
that aren't Extended legal. That
means Dark Ritual and Treachery.
Nothing too essential,
For a Black/Blue deck, a tournament contender should probably have four Watery Grave. Four Underground River too. They're not cheap, not by a long shot, but the more copies you can get, the better. They're expensive for a reason- they're very good. I don't recommend these rare lands to most customers simply because many are on a budget and can't afford to spend $20 on a single card. I don't blame them, neither can I. But if you can get them, do so. Otherwise you can try Dimir Aquaduct for a budget alternative. And in any U/B mill deck, a copy or two of Duskmantle, House of Shadow is appropriate.
That's everything I can do,
Jon. It's in your capable hands
