Budget Building: Episode 2 - Blink by Kevin Weber
I realize the idea isn't original - in fact, everyone and their grandmother's dog has built a Blink deck. For good reason, too - they're usually fun to play, and can be really cheap to construct.

Combo of the Day
Simic Initiate Buy + Cytoshape Buy + Ink-Treader Nephilim Buy
trying to break Cytoshape Buy

{1}: drop a Simic Initiate Buy(playing a graft deck is wise for this combo's use)
{2}: Cytoshape Buy Ink-Treader Nephilim Buy choosing your Simic Initiate Buy
{3}: watch em all go dead by transforming their precious creautes into a 0/0's...stick that in your indestructable...

note: i recommend grafting a +1/+1 to your Ink-Treader Nephilim Buy if you want to keep it
