Peasant Magic Decks

Tim Control - by Niels Duif (nielsduif@hotmail.com)

MAIN DECK (60 cards)

22 Island
1 Force of Will
1 Propaganda
1 Air Elemental
1 Suq'Ata Firewalker
3 Thornwind Faeries
4 Prodigal Sorcerer
3 Arcane Denial
4 Daze
4 Force Spike
4 Mana Leak
4 Echoing Truth
4 Unsummon
4 Counterspell

SIDEBOARD (15 cards)

3 Zuran Spellcaster
1 Dream Tides
4 Coast Watcher
3 Diplomatic Immunity
2 Blue Elemental Blast
2 Hydroblast

This deck was built with the additional restriction that only one copy of each uncommon is allowed. If this restriction is dropped, I would include 4 Force of Wills.

The early game strategy is to counter any spell you can, except for 1-toughness creatures. The Unsummons and Echoing Truth can send back early threats which you can counter later. Depending on what your opponent is playing you should either drop a turn 3 Tim or wait until you have enough mana to cast a Tim (Prodigal Sorcerer and friends) and have a counterspell for backup.
The sideboard is built to deal with the toughest matchups. Sligh is annoying because it's fast and easily kills your Tims. So against sligh you board in Diplomatic Immunity, Red Elemental Blast and Hydroblast. The Dream Tides and Coast Watchers help against green aggro decks with annoying creatures like Blastoderm, Nimble Mongoose and Elvish Lookout. The Zuran Spellcasters are meant to deal with decks that only rely on hordes of creatures. Sideboarding them gives you 3 more Tims and a better chance to kill 2- or 3-toughness creatures.

If you have any tips for this deck, please let me know.
