I showed you my card pool that I got here. Below is the deck I put together and how I got there.
Green was clearly the weakest color in the pool with only a few playable creatures and almost no tricks. I ruled that out immediately.
White really stood out for me with the card pool: Indomitable Archangel and Glimmerpoint Stag are extremely powerful and arrest is one of the better limited "removal" cards in the game. I also wanted to include red because of the double shatter and the galvanic blast. Finally, blue had some nice options to include but I ended up cutting to only the absolute most useful. Trinket Mage was leveraged to grab spellbombs and then the Lumengrid Drake became a nice removal option along with disperse.
I looked at black for a while but really beyond Instill Infection and Grasp of Darkness there wasn't much going for it. Only the Instill was splashable and I felt blue and red were both better options for those roles.
Finally, I started adding the artifacts. Contagion Engine went in, along with the double tumble magnet. The useful spellbombs, rust tick, and then started filling up from there. I had some trouble cutting the last few artifacts. I had two Darksteel sentinels and ended up having to cut one. The Soliton's also couldn't find their way into my deck either.
I think there are a few ways to go here but I went ahead and focused on removal and powerful finishers and came up with this:
Non Creature Artifacts
Glint Hawk Idol
Tumble Magnet x2
My games have been pretty good and I'm winning more often than losing. One of my opponents landed a Koth and the other a Venser. I've had success against both. Disperse is pretty damn good.
What do you think? Would you guys have done this card pool differently?
