Fix that mana base and add Shadowmage Infiltrator.

This looks like a pretty good idea. I dont see much point in the Fathom Seer Buys but other than that i think this would work out pretty well.

Definintelly add in Shadowmage Infiltrator Buy. Since you have blue, you should have massive amounts of card advantage. Also consider adding Shapesharer Buy as tech vs legends and use for copying your own stuff.

Please rate my Rock Solid deck

I really like the synergy between Crafty Pathmage Buy and Doran. Imagine this with Indomitable Ancients Buy... wow.

I have not seen this idea before. I think it looks different enough to be fun, as long as you weren't trying to build anything tournament worthy. I like the inclusion of the leaf-crowned elder/runed stalactite, why not.

Wow, this looks like a tough one to pull off for FNM. As for your flying problem...anything I can think of will kill your birds so we don't want that but if your deck is agro enough, the faeries should be blocking you not the other way around. I mean if I have a couple of 5/5's and 3/3's attacking I shouldn't be too worried about some silly 1/1 or 2/2 faeries.

I like the addition of craftie path mage to this deck but other than that I'm not convinced that the blue really needs to be in it(please rate my U/G/R control deck)

I really like this build. I LOVE the addition of Dream Stalker Buy for the harbingers. I also LOVE the synergy of Runed Stalactite Buy and Leaf-Crowned Elder Buy. I think you might need to split your 7 islands into islands and plains, as you don't have a lot of free white producers.

I still don't really think Garruk synergizes with this deck, but hey, he's still a beast. I also think you need some card draw other than the pathmage. Since you have blue, you could throw in Ponder Buy, one of my favorite cards in the color. It would help you fix your next couple draws as well.

I like Chromatic Star Buy for the card draw, but it's just a one-time use... you could use prismatic lens for colorless and repeatedly for color fixing.

Finally, as for your flying problem, there are a few cards you could sidboard for a deck with lots of flyers. Cloudthresher Buy would be my first choice, but it would kill your birds as well. You could also consider Canopy Spider Buy or Thornweald Archer Buy for their reach capability (plus they are cheap).

I still REALLY like this deck! Keep up the good work.

I would consider some whispersilk cloaks or a Protector to protect your Doran and your elder, if you're up against someone with a lot of direct creature kills could easily screw your game plan. Then of course the flying...you could throw in some brass gnats. All they're really good for is some quick, cheap air protection, but especially against a rogue/faerie deck, it can help stop prowl costs. I've got to agree with some of the others here, not sure how Garruk entirely fits in...but I see how he could help. Either way it's a pretty decent deck.

Fortunately, you get some great hate for flyers in shadowmoor. Clever insight into the kinship mechanic, I salute you. Crafty Pathmage Buy is also a neat idea with doran.

The manabase will need fixing as soon as shadowmoor is readily available.

Please rate my Bringers Deck.

ok first off for the way this deck is meant to run i think you got it pretty much perfect the only thing that i might take out is the oblivian ring for some kind of really good draw card or maybe a cheap blue counter spell... this deck looks very fun to play....

I made a Doran deck a while back. I solved the flyer problem with a little lifegain, plus Deadly Recluse Buy, and Pestilent Kathari Buy. For yours it would be nice to see a little more removal, something in addition to Oblivion Ring Buy would be great, like Path to Exile Buy, or maybe even a Windstorm Buy. The mana base looks a little unstable, perhaps you could add some Terramorphic Expanse Buy to allow you to get the land you needed.
