What's a Sideboard?

How it Works

Bad Visions-
A mixture of horde, bounce, and counter spell strategies

This deck relies on bounce back counter spells and draw cards in order to get lots of hard to block illusions into play that can increase you draw card advantage with Coastal Piracy Buy and Curiosity Buy. The idea is eventually to be able to play so many creatuers and get so many counters in your hand each turn your that your opponet is unable to play very many cards.


Curiosity Buy and Coastal Piracy Buy these cards give me the ability to draw cards off of my difficult to block creatures.

Sigil of Sleep Buy along with Somnophore Buy help me neutralize creature populations.

Counterspell Buy and Mana Leak Buyare the counter spells of my deck.

Krovikan Mist Buy a cheep card that grows with the amount of illusions in play. Homunculus's are cheep 1/1 creatuers with abilities that make them hard to block. Mistform Warchief Buy he makes things cheaper so that I can turn out creatures faster. Phantom Warrior Buy you can't block this creature. Fleeting Image Buy it flies and can retreat.

Rushing River Buy a little added bounce

Saprazzan Skerry Buy for early speed

Possible Change cards

Cephalid Pathmage Buy
Escape Artist Buy (I'd use this card but its a theme deck)
Metathran Soldier Buy

My sideboard has alot of anti-red because I fear burn a little
