On my walk home from work today, I came up with an idea I'm calling "Key Control"
Produce lots of mana:
- Lots of artifact mana production
- 3-4 Voltaic Key
Use lots of mana:
- Time Vault
- 2+ Blightsteel Collosus
- Walking Ballista
- Mind Twist
- Black Sun's Zenith
- Charbelcher (cutting lands down to Academy and Minamo
- Other ... Sun's Zeniths
- Trinisphere - I'm making a shitload of mana, why do I care about a 3ball?
Played this pile of Vintage-legal cards today. (5C Staxx)
Play of the day was:
Waste your Underground sea. Float (3) with Workshop. Tap Emerald. Crop Rotate sacrificing Workshop. Get Strip Mine. Strip Mine your Island. Cast Trinisphere. You have no permanents. Go.
Deck was fun to play but ultimately just too slow. Many games I was struggling not to lose instead of being able to even begin to execute my gameplan.
5C Staxx was the second deck I ever built in any constructed format. It was fun to get back to it. I might tweak a bit and play it again next time around rather than switching to another crazy deck as I'd planned.
