you have some good ideas here. These are my suggestions:

1. This deck (or at least ROCK decks) should only be in extended format, not classic. there isnt too much to gain by going classic other than harder opponents. The extended format has just gotten a lot easier with the banning of Entomb Buy("According to this quarter's DCI and Banned/Restricted Announcement, Goblin Lackey, Entomb, and Frantic Search are all banned in Extended format, effective October 1st. The changes are part of an effort to slow the Extended format down."). no more turn one or two AKROMA's. Nekrataal Buy wouldnt be able to do squat and Spiritmonger Buy would be stuck.

2. I am not a fan of white in this deck. I realize that you have a good deck here, If you are stuck on having white, thats fine, but its not NEEDED. My ROCK deck originally had white in it and for a while it had blue and red also. after tons of playtesting (my future wife is at school at ISU, so I have had more time), the only real colors should be black and green. Not to say that white doesnt work. You have a great deck here. Its just not needed. You chould get similar or possibly better results using some of the black and green extended cards.

just some thoughts. thanks for rating my deck and your imput.

Screws over so many different decks.. These are the decks you can't help but love, and hate, depending on which side your on.

As far as suggestions go, I'd sideboard 2 Gaea's Herald. Wait for those mono-blue controls to over reach with their counters, then throw down. Hopefully they don't play Force of Will.

If they're indeed playing mono-blue control, then dealing with those creatures can be painful at times. Other than bouncing then countering the Herald, they'll be in trouble. And that throws away more spells for them.

As usual, if anything smacks me in the face, I'll be back.

Nice deck! The white gives it a nice different flavor, and yet you still seem to have it so that it runs smoothly. I would suggest taking out Death Wish Buy and add in Death Grasp Buy. It would help you gain life as well. Please rate my "Sticks and Stones..." deck whenever you get a chance! Thanks!

good deck. this is really unusual to have white in a rock deck. very good idea adds more feel to the deck and gives u access to white removal as well as enchantment removal

I see no problem with this deck. It's rock witha twist and the twist is good. All you have to do is draw what u need. Great deck.

Cool i'd like to see it run, a proper sneak attack deck works much the same, the only thing i can think that you need is some card finding ability such as survival of the fittest

Nice deck. I have a few suggestions

If this deck is in Classic, then why not change the land setup a little bit. Use 4 Savannah, 4 Scrubland, 4 Bayou, 1 Forest, 2 Plains, and 4 Swamp. This is the same number of lands, but this way it's easier to get the right mana color.

Anurid Brushopper might work well with Pernicious Deed.

I also think Death Grasp would work well; just like a drain life but you can use any color mana.

Solid deck. Looks good.

All in all, an ok deck. No sugestions on what to add/remove. Looks fine as is.

By the way: My, "Slivers: The Host" deck, did you even pay attention to what I said it was for in the explanation? You didn't even explain what this deck "need[ed]" help with! And what in the name of the Abyss makes you think that I'm a beginner at Magic?! I would have you know that that deck works just fine the way it is. It is a fast deck to play and can wipe out most other decks that it comes up against; not accounting for shuffle and cut--which can screw over even the best of decks. I have shown this deck to an expert--he has been playing magic since it came out, and he agrees that there is nothing wrong with the deck! The only problem with the deck was explained in the explanation section: I paraphrase, "this deck works well in a one-on-one match, but I do not recommend it in matches with more than one opponent."--the reason for this problem is simply the fact that most people do not like to go up against a sliver deck and tend to gang up against one when it is played! THAT IS THE ONLY "REAL PROBLEM" WITH THAT DECK!

Oh! By-the-by, if your going to take the time to rake someones deck over the proverbial coals, you might want to take the time to actually rate the deck, instead of just a text lecture. Oh, you might consider thinking you comments through, or atleast making sure you understand what a deck is really about, before raking it over the coals. Just suggestions, you don't have to do so, but it might be interesting to try.

No hard feelings, your deck really is ok, that rating is not from a chip on my shoulder. In fact it might be interesting to see in action.Happy Again, no hard feelings.

I accept your appology, and appologize for any offense that my last post might have caused. I don't know who was pretending to be me, but i guess that that sometimes happens. Again, this deck of yours looks good Happy. Thanks again for the appology!

I'm not seeing a need for all that main deck enchantment destruction. I would take out Monk Realist Buy, simply because you already have Naturalize Buy in the main deck. Sideboard it if you want, but I don't think it should be maindecked. I would like to see some reanimation added to this deck to compensate for in the untimely event of your kill condition going into your graveyard. Nice 3 color rock deck though.

Check out my decks

Preferably Soft Light of Destruction or Alcatraz

good deck, i have a suggestion tho, theres a new card in darksteel that works very well in green SB right now, its Viridian Zealot Buy. you might want to consider it, since it acts as a chump blocker and is a Naturalize Buy on a stick. it also works with Living Wish Buy.

plz rate my legend elves deck

help me grow taller

After eliminating an opponent's creatures, a kickered Desolation Angel Buy is a great (though expensive) way to prevent them from coming back. and living wish can find it (unlike armageddon).
And Death Grasp Buy is amazing, as has been stated before. you might also try Phyrexian Arena Buy or some variant thereof (creature?) with it, but don't unless you have some form of life gain.
