Ok, I will rate this deck honestly and hopefully I can help.

-2 Reclaim Buy
+1 Regrowth Buy
-3 Diabolic Tutor Buy
+1 Vampiric Tutor Buy
+1 Mox Emerald Buy
+1 Mox Jet Buy
+1 Mox Sapphire Buy
+1 Black Lotus Buy
+1 Mind Twist Buy
-2 Tangle Buy
-1 Forest Buy
-1 Swamp Buy
-1 Island Buy
+1 stripmine

The reason why all the changes is becuase you have this deck in CLASSIC format. with the above changes, this deck could win turn 2. thats the type of deck you have to have to be competitive in Classic format. I would imagine that if you made this deck in EXTENDED format, it could be a little bit better because the competition isn't as fiece. You have to spend a couple grand to get a tournament quality deck in classic format. Here is what you deck would look like with my changes.

The Incredible Aluren

I humbly disagree with majic stick. I don't need to tell you the deck is good... very good. Taking the top cards from the set would change the whole theme, and it isn't really necessary. This is a good pace for a deck, with decent control. It does lack a bit in defense and the mana is slightly off. Playing with it, I found myself lacking blue mana, probably because the mana is split evenly, and llanawar elves only procuce green, while severl cards use two blue. Trying for double black was hard sometimes too. I found myself having to tutor for land (a turn wasted).
Aside from that, a very fun deck to play.

majik stick is right. you shoudl have less storm spells in mainboard, have the elf that lets u draw when u play a beast (so u can draw ur deck with cavern harpy). Play cunning/burning wish for your wins.

If you cant afford mox/lotus, proxy them, or play Chrome mox at least.

actually if you want to get more competitve, this should be in extended format. I would rearrange the cards around to make it legal in extended format and stay there. if you don't have to play in classic format, i wouldn't. for the simple fact that most classic format decks that are any good with win in between turns 2 and turns 4. In order for you to do that, you need moxes and lotuses. just my opionion. they are not as hard to get as you think. i used to have a bunch of moxes and a gem mint timewalk from unlimited. never owned a lotus though. some of my friends had a couple of them (alpha version).

ok i noticed you have 63 cards , take out 2 hunting pack's because they dont makle an instant win , and theyre slower than everything else and this deck doesn't need to be any slower , also , i dunno how much the mind twist helps , i say take it out also to take you down to 60 cards , oh and if you really need discard , try hyme to tourach or duress ,oh yea and if you didn't know , theres a green tutor that can put a creature card on top of your library , that might help , oh and theres also mystical tutor from blue to put a sorcery or instant ontop of your library , that might also help , thanx for rating my deck .

Hey, this is a good deck, ive always wanted to make something like it and (if you dont mind) i think i will use ur deck for the basis of mine. There is a local tournament around where i live that lets me prox out 10 cards to play with so im going to make this a consistant 1 or 2 turn kill deck... the only thing that i can say to make it any better would be to take out the counterspells for Force of Will becuase if the counterspell your brainfreeze, your not gunna want to pay UU in order to counterspell it. Good deck!

I like it. The only thing I would change would be removing the 4xHunting Pack Buy and adding 4xDiabolic Tutor Buy. You are still left with 8 cards used for the kill, but now instead of possibly drawing a Hunting Pack Buy and a Tendrils of Agony Buy, You draw one win condition and a way to grab a Cavern Harpy Buy or Aluren Buy.

Pretty good deck.... i like it and i use to play alluren. Id say add more tutors cuz if you dont get out alluren your pretty much a goner. Also some creature destruction in case someone uses a Meddeling mage. Good deck tho and good luck with it

I love the strategy involved in this deck but the bad thing is that it's harder than heck to pull this off in the first 3 turns. Great strategy though, very very smart strategy. Hey you need to see my new deck, it's looking very interesting!!!
Plus, I need some suggestions!! Great deck though

Wow. This is a very interesting deck. I think that it's definitely tournament winning. I love everything about it, however there is one thing that I must pick at. After actually analyzing the deck I looked at the price and almost jumped out of my seat. Not everybody has a Magic budget of over $1,000. However, for those that do it is an incredible deck. Please rate my decks!
