CardShark Content - Benjamin Walker (9/8/2003)

While being bored out of my mind one fine summer day,
I got on Magic: The Gathering Online and decided, why
the heck not, let's make me a deck! So I sat down for
a while, and thought. Then I grabbed a drink, forgot
about thinking, and came back 24 hours later. And a
few great ideas hit me. So then, here's my Black/Red
Anticontrol deck!


Let's start off with the center of this whole deck: A
very mean and nasty combo.

4 Death Pits Of Rath


Woohoo! Kill all your opponent's creatures! It's like
a pumped-up Wrath Of God, it is.


However, we'll need some more evil tricks if we want
to stay alive...

The plaguelords work great in almost all goblin
decks...just craete a few expendable creatures, then
toss them straight at anything that needs goblins
tossed at. And doubled up with Festering Goblin
