Description:

This is the deck I played in the December D?lmen and went 5-2 with.

Losing a match to bad played powerless Keeper (he tried to Fire my Tog in my end step etc.) due to 1st turn Duress, at least 1 Wasteland and a Powder Keg for my Moxen during game 2 and 3 after easily winning game 1.

The other match loss came at the hands of Benjamin Ribbeck and his Burning Wish Keeper (Swen Weinhold used a similar listing to Top 8 at the tourney), losing to a screw up on my side in the 1st game and a good draw on his and bad draw on my side.

Even though both match losses were against Keeper decks, I still think this is your best matchup. You have MD Duress and Blasts in the board, combined with the fact that every card in your deck is either a counter, a card drawer or a kill card. All in all I don't think the deck is good in a metagame with lots of aggro, as I expected a lot of control and therefore left all removal in the SB.

If you want to have fun beating your control-playing opponent with rather unusual cards, this is your deck, if you want to win a tourney, go play something else ;)
