It is a great deck but I think you might want to consider taking out Leonin Abunas and putting in chrome mox, mox diamond and some dual lands like scrublands, badlands, savannahs also maybe darksteel forge if you have fast mana to play it.
thanks for r8ing my deck i hope this helps yours

Oh, this deck tickles my nostalgia bone!
You don't get to see such a proper, trueblood Vintage deck as this these days any more!
Shame, really.
Anyways, the only real problem I see is the rather erratic mana curve (which really isn't that much of a problem thanks to mana acceleration).
I admit I'm sooo biased when it comes down to decks like this, given my over ten-year-long mtg career and "Johnnyness", but still this deck kicks some major planeswalker behind, IMHO! Happy
Should this be of tournament quality though, the dual lands and moxes are a format stable.

I know the combo u play in, but I admit I donnow any deck focused on it but my own one.
I think the problem this deck has is that it has nothing to do before the cards are in play. Mana is not a problem, cause cards are cheap. But oftenly u can do nothing more than play a few creatures while waiting for the right cards. I shoud include in there some card-acceleration, even if this change the colors the deck play. I think 10 "{X}{R}spells" is too much for only 1 Fastbond Buy.

Try Enlightened Tutor Buy, Impulse Buy, o something like this to move quickly to needed cards. Fetchlands work well with crucible as u can search for almost every dual land in the deck. And... if u play crucible u can't forget to think about Wasteland Buy.

Please, take a look at this. I think there's here some stuff that will be useful to you. Although, any helpful comment is more than welcome.

Replace Fireball Buy with Demonfire Buy if you want to avoid counters and prevention.

It does not have the optional multi-target hit, but it can get the job done on the first casting.

i like this deck a lot. looks fun and strong. if anything, i would think of adding something like Saffi Eriksdotter Buy to protect your big kill creatures. thx for the rate.

Looks like a fun and potential deadly deck. You will have a few problems doing anything until you get your combo working. If you have some Mox's that could help get your deck working faster. But the only thing that matters is how fast it works and the win ratio. All in all it looks like a good solid deck. Not sure how it would handle in a Tournament though.

Your manabase is horrible. also why all of the bad type 2 cards? Standard's duel lands suck compared to Vintage's. This deck should be in casual.

I think this deck has a lot of potentional. You maybe slightly better off if you focus on a few combos. I got the feeling that this deck was slightly all over the place.

I agree with the one who've said that adding Saffi Eriksdotter Buy will protect your big creatures specifically your main killer Greater Gargadon Buy from going to the grave and have to suspend another one again.

I've got one thing for you...Fatal Frenzy Buy. It pumps up your Greater Gargadon Buy to a big, big, big 18/16 monster. And with the help of Saffi Eriksdotter Buy, it would protect it from dying and do that suspending (for 10) all over again.

Other than that, I think you've made a pretty decent deck. Thanks for rating mine!

I think you have a bunch of different things going on in this deck. I'm not sure of the Greater Garagon since he does not have flying, trample, etc., he is susceptible to removal and diseases. I like the Dark Depths as I have seen that card win games before (unfortunately). I would suggest throwing in a Strip Mine, as that works nicely with the Fastbond/Crucible combo. I worry about synergy here but would need to see it run to to judge it. I ran a similar Creature Lands, Mishra's/Blinkmoths etc, deck that used Horn of Greed (play a land, draw a card) to draw through the deck.

Well, you asked for a rating, and you got it! Thank you for the review :P

I like the use of enchantment search and such to try and get fastbond out quickly. However, what I see though is that there's not really much that focuses on artifact search to get the crucible out. But aside from that, it seems easy enough to get the fastbond, and if you're set with a crucible, you're set!

Also, a note about Ghitu Fire for my deck...I run into a lot of damage before I win and any damage I take seems to pile on sometimes...so I'd say it's a no-no. :P Thanks though!

You solve the artifact fetching problem by running Horn of Greed Buy.

With Fastbond and the Horn, it's basically a Yawgmoth's Bargain Buy. You get so much draw off it, that you can find the other combo pieces pretty darn fast.

Plus, you can always throw in Enlightened Tutor Buy or two to search out both.

Though, I've been working on the above deck concept for about a year, and haven't quite perfected it. So, good luck.
