put me in U/W for the deck. Blue also had countermagic to stop troublesome cards to my decking strategy.

I built a first version of the deck, but I wasn’t getting the right cards when I needed them. So I discarded the deck as too unwieldy and tried again. The reason I kept losing was that quick creatures kept killing me before I could get my combo ready. So, I would need some mana acceleration, and search cards to get combo pieces. I put a second version together, and it worked way better.
