[Modern] Treasure Cruise and Friends in Blue Black

I have had a lot of fun with this deck. It loses to fast decks consistently, yet it wins often against seemingly strong mid-range decks.

Here I have my opponent sacrifice two Tarmogoyfs.

And my opponent quits after I drop a 27/27 Consuming Aberration.

Here I am one turn away from milling my opponent with two Nephalia Drownyards.

Here I stall an Infect deck and get lucky with fast creature draws.

Here I have a flyer against a Pod variant for the win (FTW).

January 3, 2015 addition (this deck can be brutal!)

I fed a black green deck and it would have wiped me out except for some lucky draws.

And here is the win.... I got lucky. This game could have gone against me very easily.

[Modern] Two games with Hardened Scales in red green

Here is the deck:


I lost the first game, and I am including it here to mention two cards I may want to play in the future:

Mind's Eye (Artifact, Whenever an opponent draws a card, you may pay 1. If you do, draw a card.)

Dragonmaster Outcast (1/1 red creature; At the beginning of your upkeep, if you control six or more lands, put a 5/5 red Dragon creature token with flying onto the battlefield.)

And here is a game in which I was able to over-power throughout.

[Modern] Two more games with Elves Version 3

This is one of my favorite decks. I play it in Just for Fun yet it can also win a game here and there in Tournament Practice. Here are two fair games.

The decklist is here:


Against control:
(I got a ton of creatures countered until I could finally squeeze in a Wurmcoil Engine).

Against a deck featuring Skinrender, a very effective creature.

[Modern] Hellrider deck again

This deck can race many good decks. It is still a casual deck.

Here are two wins. If I get Hellrider and enough creatures to attack, I can win the game just with the 1-damage counters.

Missing Vintage Masters/Mirage Block/Tempest

I have been teaching myself a little about legacy and vintage while slowly building up my selection of these cards. Here is what I am missing.
