While this seems like a good concept. You definitely need more control in this deck. Any good blue deck has counters, and other decks usually have an answer to enchantments. Cards like Delay Buy, Draining Whelk Buy, or even Faerie Trickery Buy would help you with this. With this combo of colors I wouldn't be even surprised to see you running Zur the Enchanter Buy. I hope this helped.

Please rate my Boggart Bonanza deck.

i actually tried building a deck that works like this :D Anyway, here are my comments:

i dont think Mournwhelk Buy fits the deck that much. It gives you card advantage, but thats it. How about putting in Cloudstone Curio Buy? Everytime you put down the Shriekmaw Buy or Mulldrifter Buy, you could return another one to your hand for extra advantage. Im not sure, but maybe it could work with Evoke? [evoking it and bouncing it back, maybe?]

With Cloudstone Curio Buy, everytime you put an Oblivion Ring Buy, you can return Reality Acid Buy and get rid of permanents faster.

I'd also recommend putting cards that search for enchantments and some counters :D

i'd be grateful if you could rate my deck, Lorwyn Tribes Attack, http://essentialmagic.com/Decks/View.asp?ID=595598

Much thanks :D

i agree with cro about mournwelk and cloud curio. other then that i might think about getting rid of cruel edicts and add in tendrils of corruption just incase you run into a pesky creature or down on life

please rate my dreaming jace deck

Yeah, the above comments... if only Cloudstone Curio Buy was standard. Sorry guys...

Anyway, I have ran this deck and it is efficient with merely a decent draw. I'd say its biggest weakness is speed. Aggro decks run all over this because they are just too fast. With 4 Prismatic Lens Buy, you ought to run atleast 1 Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir Buy. The ability to instant speed an Oblivion Ring Buy is absolutely essential.

I'd also say drop the Cruel Edict Buy. You've got 4 Shriekmaw Buys. This is more of a sideboarded card when you play against black.

Another thing is the Mournwhelk Buy. This card is just bad here in my opinion. After taking out Cruel Edict Buy and this card, put Jester's Scepter Buy back in. After all, that card is this deck's win condition.

Its good. a solid side board is all you need.I agree with forfrost except for the teferi making you able to play enchantments at instant speed hello only creatures get flash scrub. Damnation in the side or wrath.

I really like the concept of the deck. One thing that just doesn't seem to work well in this deck though is Deep-Sea Kraken Buy. I know it seems like a good finisher but with all the creature hate everywhere I can't see it lasting very long. Since your already running blink ever consider usingRiftwing Cloudskate Buy? Seems like it could work well in here.

Sweetster deck. I think you could really benefit from a few Draining Whelk Buys since they can counter spells and it's also a huge flier.

Please rate back.

In mi opinion, ur landbase isnt good enough 2 not run 4 Prismatic Lens. I would modify it wit at least 2 of each painland or put tha prismatics back in. Plz r8 mi U/W Control. Thx

The deck looks quite good. I'm wondering about the Oblivion Ring Buy bounced while on the stack though. 2 reasons for this. First off, you have to target a "permanent" with your bounce spells and Oblivion Ring Buy, or any card for that matter, doesn't become "permanent" until it "comes into play". Unless you're going to play around with a Venser, Shaper Savant Buy, you're not really bouncing spells. Second off, Oblivion Ring Buy has to come into play, not only be played, in order for its removal stipulation to take effect.

As best as I know, you can't do the "ultimate removal" you were hoping for. ...correct me if I'm wrong.

I like the Riftwing Cloudskate Buy and Boomerang Buy over some other cards like Unsummon Buy because of the versatility. So long as you can afford to pay the extra mana for this freedom, good choice.

The other thing I've noticed is that you have no one-drops. If you come up with a poor draw and get a Dreamstalker and no other two-drops, you're looking at a mana-disadvantage. Normally I'd say put in some Springleaf Drum Buy to compensate for having no one-drops. In your case I'd still think about it, but I don't know if it'd benefit you best. If you find yourself often being a bit short on mana, Springleaf Drum Buy is a good solution.

All and all the deck looks pretty solid so long as you can support the cards you have in terms of mana.

my only qualm is the Cruel Edict Buy. Personal i think there are better things out there then that. Something like Nameless Inversion Buy or the like would be better.

Other then that i love the build.

Could you rate

Yes, I believe if I played more competitively, I'd sideboard cruel edict. However, for whatever reason, I run into Korlash fairly often. Also seem to run into white Akroma enough too. So the cruel edicts do have their uses. I think I've used it on Doran the most though.

I really like this deck, yet i am noticing some heavy mana issues which will only be fixed when you add painlands, i know they deal damage to you yet it smuch better than having problems with mana colors.
most importantly, remove those expanses, they normally kill my turn even before i have thought about it.
