Welcome to Librarium Online!
Hi. been a member on LO for quit some time, have played alittle bit MTG but not that much. This deck is the first deck that i built after i got the red ninth edition team deck.
so here goes:
Horde Of Notions
2xFists of the Demigod
2xTorrent of Souls
Din of the Fireherd
Consign to Dream
C&C is apreciated.
If I may be blunt, 5 colour decks are very hard to play with and you seem to have a very unfocussed deck to build around. Red/black elementals have a very strong theme as far as a tribal set in recent years goes, there are elemental cards in lorwyn/shadowmoor, M10, zendikar and possibly alara (I'm not sure about Alara though).
The shadowmoor ones are by far the easiest though, they have a lot of hybrid costs which can make forming a mana base easier than staright 2 colour cards are. Have a look on Gatherer on the MTG website to get a feel for some of the cards out there and look for good interactions. You'll want some combat tricks and removal spells too, things like lightning bolt and hideous end are pretty much must haves for red and black decks at the moment.
Finally, the main weakness of the deck is the mana base. I've only ever seen one deck work well with so few lands and that was a white "weenie" deck where almost all the spells cost only one or two mana to play at most. For a five colour deck you are wanting to have at least 24 lands in your deck. Currenly you have a lot of fun creatures and spells but they'll be clogging up your hand as you lack the mana to play them. Even if you go down the red/black route you'll want 20 as a very minimum, with 23 probably being optimal.
I thought that you woud say something like this, but one thing that i didn't excpect was that i was gona lack mana, i have never as long as i have played this deck had any mana troublem ainly because of the Shimering Grottos. And it doesnt look like it is built around any spesific creature and you are right it isn't it is half way built around Horde of Notions.
The reason i may never have mana probs is that i usualy get a lucky first han or i muligan until i get a land ..........And i have played in some local tournament where this deck has been the winner. And i know 5 colours is hard to play whit.
And i m gona get me some res cards, so this deck will begin to be built around creature resuruction.
What sort of tournaments do you enter? And what format are you building it for? As an extended deck it lacks potency, it doesn't have a great deal of the staple cards that make up a regular extended deck. As for ressurection, why not go mono/semi black? A B/R deck with a res theme could work OK with the elementals especially when you have the haste/sacrifice elementals that can be a one-turn wonder.
Well the tournament is a amature turnament and it is built around extended edition.
