I keep one power in my deck with only 1 sleeve (superblack) and the other in 16-slot pages ultra pro binder with side opening in the sleeves.
deck and binder are in my gun locker in a dry room with controlled temperature.
no more than one sleeve otherwise you risk moulds and other shit if you don't use them frequently or you store them in a hot and mild place.
no sun.
if u use 3 sleeves and don't play them frequently and eventually store the deck in a mild and hot room u risk humidity problems, mould and similar shit... I don't see the point in 3 sleeves, cards get no air and thats not good...
even perfect size + superblack is more than needed and worth only if u play cards often...

I cut white, I play only 2 hydra and 1 abrupt In my main because my first strategy is win via tendrils, hydra is my second plan but usually you can cast it whenever it's possible, if it hit the board it will win alone in 2-3 turns depending on your opponent deck or your cantrips..
the rest of the green cards are in the sideboard, 2 nature's claim, 1 trygon, 1 abrupt and other utilities...

we are also thinking on a version with green sun zenith, runemap excavator and fastbond... but we don't have much time to test...

nice primer...

in my paradoxical shell I'm using a list with green, 2 managorger hydra instead of thinker for C. and it's quite good, you don't fear REB or dack and hydra grows really fast, try it..

...personally I hate signed and pimped cards, all my old cards (alpha and beta) are not signed nor pimped...
I like them as they are and usually I consider their value decreased if they are signed...
on the other and there are many players who like signed or pimped cards...
so... it's up to you...
but I would not have them signed...

We used to play that kind of format in the past, we called it PentaColor in italy, 5 mages with one different color each and no more than 2 o 3 artifacts (appropriate mox and sol ring usually)...

after some months it turned out it was better to play it without a defined ally/enemy policy but everyone against everyone, and it was nice because for the first half of the game it looked more like a role play where people were trying to find allies and turn other mages against the most feared opponent.

Games were quite long, a single pentacolor game was lasting usually more than one hour i remember...
it was more than 20 years ago...
