[editor's note: Ordinarily I wouldn't post such a short article, but this was such a great deck idea that I couldn't stand it. I had to put it up. Enjoy]

I have long pondered the idea of building a Magic deck without using any lands. of course, you could do it, but would you conceivably be able to win? i have finally built a deck that could conceivably win. keep in mind that this deck is meant for casual play, hence the 40-card deck. (old-school)
