While looking through a bunch of cards I had, I found a very strong combo that ruled apprentice. This card uses the awesome power of Spreading Plaque, along with other cards.
The idea is to play Spreading Plaque as soon as possible, then play a Sway of Illusion to change all of your opponent's creatures to a single color. Then wipe them out using Alloy Golem and choosing the appropriate color. This combo works wonders against rebel decks, and you can often simply use Liberate on your own Golem to save him from an opponent's creature coming into play. At end of turn, you can automatically wipe out your opponent again! The deck uses massive creatures to deal damage while the opponent recovers.
