Nice deck

think about using Standarize and Peer Pressure which controls all of the opponents creatures (permenently)

also using the Mistform creature cards to use peer pressures ability. Also use clone to copy the opponents sick creature card.

can u plz r8 my Black/Green Beat Down deck

It seems like a cool deck. It seems like its missing something to me, unfortunately, I can't put my finger on it. Looks like it is worth playtesting though, especially considering you own all those cards.

Good Strategy. First thing i would do is take out 2 Memory Lapse and put in 2 Force of Will, because all memory lapse is delay the spell for 1 turn. Force of Will lets you counter a spell when your opponent least expects it, when your tapped out. Its alternate cost makes you lose 1 life and remove a blue card in your hand form the game, but its usually worth it.

Also, i would take out the Blatant Theivery and put in 2 Control Magic. This does the same thing, but is is cheaper; its an enchant creature and it only effects one creature. Put the Blatants on your sideboard for when you play multiplayer games. Blatant is better in mutiplayer than in a single duel. Other than this, i think your deck is good. I played it, I wouldn't want to play my creatures, becuse you'd counter them. But i'd be even more scared if you let it hit the table, that means your going to use it against me! Check out my goblin deck or my Pestilence deck for me. thanks.

Instead of Blatant Thievery, use Chamber of Manipulation. Also...if you can find a card in standard that is either blue or colorless that can sacrifice creature...use it! I think that can help killing the creatures u take control of when u want to. Great deck!!! I love it!! =) A nickel in all category.

Good solid idea...but I think you still have a lot of tweaking to do. First of all there is no card advatage. You have to find a way to fit in some draw. If you had something that would let you sac creatures for blue or an artifact, you could steal your opponents creatures with the oppresor, sac them and then untap him and take another one. With that combo, you could put in stand still for drawing. They think they have the advantage? Put out a standstill and start taking their creatures. I love it. Good luck. Hope I helped. Please take a look at my Blck Smack Down deck. I'm thinking of buying the cards for a local tourney. I need comments. Thanx.

Nasty, nasty, nasty. Nothing but controlling magic.

If you find you're having mana problems, try something like sorcerer's apprentice. Something to help you draw cards might be usefull, too, like Arcanis.

By the way, next time you rate, put down some recommendations or something that tells me you actually looked through the cards.

i would be more impressed but blatant theivery although its one of the only standard options really sucks unless ur playing with at least 3 players but otherwise imagecrafter+callous opressor make a near unbeatable team and then willbender comes in with his disruption good idea

This deck definatly has potential i would suggest maybe cutting in some black hand discard ie. hipnotic specter and may some hymn to tourach. For blue i dunno probably confiscate to control whatever you want from them and may some control magic.

Plz rate one of my decks thanx

Nice deck, just needs a little bit of tweeking. First of all I would take out:
Blatant Thievery Buy
Memory Lapse Buy
Lost in Toughts
Blatant Thievery Buy just costs too much for what it does and Memory Lapse Buy just delays your opponent from playing the spell.
It would be a good idea to possibly put in Peer Pressure Buy. The reason that I recomend you taek out lost in thoughts is because you have been countering your opponent's spells he will have enough cards in his graveyard to ignore the spell.
Here is a list of cards you might want to put in:
Traumatize Buy
Spelljack Buy
Scalpelexis Buy
Mana Short Buy
Complicate Buy
Circular Logic Buy
Arcanis the Omnipotent Buy

Please rate my black cleric deck.

Good deck idea. If your going for a creature stealing type theme, i would think to run Clone, Treachery, and Bribery. Riptide Mangler might also be some fun with this.

yah i see where ur komin from(u r8ed my deck "i put a spell on you") but i think that ur tryin to control more than beatdown u but in a wizardish deck u should focus some more on beatdown since u have the control all covered wid things like voidmage and wizard apprentice and crud like that, but i see wshere ur comin from i bet both of our decks would do finr in a tourny(i will rate another 1 of yours so remember to check mine out)

I would exchange several islands for Lonely Sandbar or Cephalid Collisiem. Lost in thought is a great side board card but in som match-ups would be no help at all. I would replace it with something that will keep the cards flowing like Deep Analysis, Concentrate or Compulsion. Blatant Theivery is a lot of fun in multi player but in one on one is mostly just a very expensive spell. If wanted to go the wizard route Patron Wizard can be brutal if you can set up quick enough. And I think trickery charm could be replaced by more countering or card drawing. Hope this helps!
