Lightsaber for the price of their Baneslayers. Heck, even their lands alone can pay for one of my budget decks.

I’ve designed a particular deck that seems to be pwning way too much compared to its price. In fact, it cost about $22 to buy it from here. I’ll give you a run-down of how I came to the deck.

– another super-cheap rare with some sweet effects. This will be my third win condition. I know that you elitists are thinking “man he is way too vulnerable to be a win con”, and in many ways, you’re right. But there are two factors with this deck that make it care a lot less that it's vulnerable: 1) Most of their removal is often discarded, and 2) If I’m trading a card for a card, I figure that means this deck is winning right? It depends on the matchup, but I think quite often this will be the case. Besides, at worst he’s a 2/2 chump blocker, at best he’s a 2/2 that takes out their last card or two and becomes a 5/5 flying beater. He costs $0.25 too.
