Strategy

This deck wins by attacking the opponent with beasts. It can cast Wild Growth or suspend a Durkwood Baloth on turn 1 and usually casts Harrow or Wirewood Savage on turn 2 or 3, followed by Blastoderm. Beast Attack can provide a surprise 4/4 blocker. Treetop Village serves as a backup plan for mass removal.

Synergy

  • Wirewood Savage provides card draw with Blastoderm, Beast Attack (twice), Durkwood Baloth, Garruk's Companion or Thundering Tanadon.

Strategy

This deck wins by casting Cruel Ultimatum repeatedly. It usually casts a mana stone on turn 3, then Bituminous Blast or Deny Reality on turn 4, cascading into a mana stone or Crosis' Charm. This means one can cast a Cruel Ultimatum by turn 5. Kolaghan Monument and Silumgar Monument can attack as flying 4/4 creatures.

Synergy

  • Archaeomancer can get Cruel Ultimatum back from the graveyard.
  • Bituminous Blast can cascade into a mana stone or Archaeomancer.
  • Cruel Ultimatum can get Archaeomancer back from the graveyard.
  • Deny Reality can cascade into a mana stone or Archaeomancer.

Strategy

This deck wins by playing a Megrim and letting the opponent discard cards. Bojuka Bog provides protection against graveyard-based strategies. Cephalid Coliseum and Wistful Thinking can make opponents draw and discard cards even if they have no hand. Rackling provides a backup win condition.

Synergy

  • Metamorphose becomes an instant speed Temporal Spring if the opponent has no hand.
  • Perplex can tutor for the combo pieces Megrim, Recoil, Wistful Thinking and the situational solutions Caltrops, Damping Matrix, Oblivion Stone and Profit // Loss.
  • Recoil becomes an instant speed Vindicate if the opponent has no hand.
  • Wistful Thinking with Megrim on the battlefield deals up to 8 damage.

Strategy

This deck generates mana by first resolving High Tide, then repeatedly casting and bouncing Cloud of Fairies – each resolved Cloud of Fairies or Snap that is played after a High Tide nets two blue mana. It then tries to cast cantrips and Mind's Desire and finally Brain Freeze.

This deck can combo as early as turn two, with two Island on the battlefield: By casting Lotus Petal, then High Tide, then Cloud of Faeries, then Snap, then Cloud of Faeries (again), a following Mind's Desire is copied five times.
