Looking at Adrian's deck I noticed some things I felt were flaws. First off, the Tidespout Tyrant
Tidespout Tyrant
Tidespout TyrantSet: Dissension
Color:
Blue
Rarity:
R
Number:

Artist:

won't come out until late in the game and by that time if you don't have the game in hand then there is nothing the Tyrant can do to help. The second flaw is the lone Akroma. Yet again it won't come out until late game which by that time your opponent should have a way to deal with it. To play the Locket deck properly you have two options: Win fast or Win Slow. So far in Standard there is no way to win fast with the Locket so we are forced to win slowly. In order to win Slow you have to do what you can to guarantee a win in Game one because often times you will run out of time before you have had a chance to play a full game two.

I decided to change the deck to fit the slow style of play. In order to do this I had to make sure if game one was a long game I would win every time. Here is the decklist I came up with:

but I don't see any point to the card. I really think it's a bad card.

Here is how my tournament went:

Round 1 vs. R/B

Game 1:
Unfortunately I do not remember too much about this match. I do remember that before the round started I told my opponent that if our game went longer than 15 minutes he should just give me game one and go to game 2. He chose not to follow this advice. Our first game lasted 28 minutes out of our 40 minute rounds. So far the deck was doing what I wanted it to do, win game one and use up a lot of the clock. It may seem like using the clock to your advantage is wrong but when you play a slow deck that requires time to win, even if you play fast it will still take a lot of time. I ended up decking my opponent with recurring Compulsive Research

Only 9 minutes to play this game and I am not a player that will play slowly to win a game. We get to the point of me being at 8 life and my opponent had two cards in hand so I cast a second Teferi's Moat

Remove Time Spiral from the game. Each player shuffles his or her graveyard and hand into his or her library, then draws seven cards. You untap up to six lands.
Block I feel this card will get much more powerful. We will have to wait and see, but I can guarantee you that there will be cards in the next few sets that will help the Locket become very powerful. Who knows, maybe we will even see the first banning since Mirrodin block. But for now, break the Locket any way you can. It is a very powerful card and will become a standard mainstay for the next year, I will guarantee it.
