Most Overpowered Deck.
Easily the U/G deck. Holy ♥♥♥♥, nothing like smashing faces on 5th turn with no way to kill anything even with reds, so what the ♥♥♥♥? thanks WotC for ruining a great game, so dumb. Please explain to me why this stuff happens year after year... hopefully one of these days they'll allow us to modify the decks up to 4x cards with our money. how complicated would that be?

so tired of this shiz.

U/G is one of the best but I wouldn't say it is overpowered. Two of its best cards are bugged(Snakeform and Mystic Snake.) Since Mystic Snake is bugged I assume Draining Whelk is too, but haven't tested that card as much.

You think if people were left to their own devices that decks wouldn't be overpowered?

if you think green blue is the best deck you are simply wrong, the best decks are still all the black deck. In addition, g/u has no way to deal with aura servants effectively late game.

There is no best deck except the one you win with. There are stronger and weaker deaks but if you look at the community hub screenshots -- pawnage comes in many colors. Last I heard Mirror and Time warp were game breakers. And while I"m new at the game, the relevancy of different decks and situational wins hasn't escaped me. This was reconfirmed when I got lucky -- luck being a card game factor -- and beat an experienced player with a blue deck.

LOL -- I don't mean to be a %%%%% about it. Absolutes (and wholesale claims) w/o scientific evidence on a subjective topic are just a pet-peeve of mine. ;)

The best deck currently (ie has the most favorable matchups) is G/B

That's a trend I'm seeing and proceeding to work with G/B -- I seem to have run into much fail with B/W -- though I won't blame it all on the deck. I like Flame but want another main deck to work with.

SS -- Oh my, I do love this deck. THIS is what I've been looking for. Love the carnage, er, I mean the versatility and creature/spell/mana balance as well as the speed/control.

Lets face it people, this is a fake-a$$ magic game. It is NOT in any way like a real life magic game where you can build any deck you like with any cards in it as long as it conforms to the rule book. No. Instead wotc builds your decks for you and does not let you fully customize your own decks like in real life, which in my proffesional opinion, completley ruins the game because a major part of Magic the Gathering is to build your own deck.

OK Mike, are you saying you don't like the game then?

Given I'm from a time, er, before the 80s, whereas I can call most any game fake by my childhood standards.

Hey you, guy playing COD there, try to man up and go outside and actually chase bad guys down (like your big brother) while wearing a dress and hit them with rubber bands you formed into a gun. THAT takes skill. You call this a game? It is computer pixels. Pah.

But whatever the age, there are people who maybe didn't grow up with cards or have an occasssion to use them -- or now don't have time to do so -- yet still love magical fantasy in various forms -- be it card games, RPGs, books and/or movies.

These same people, a portion rather, discovered a game in DoTP that not only offers entertainment but entry into Magic without much cost or hassle compared to paper decks. It is also a venue to find people who share one's interest whereas it may be difficult to do among real life associations.

For whatever reason -- given the game's relative popularity -- some people don't miss/want or need 'old school' Magic, or have accepted the game 'as is' because there are few alternatives with similar convenience and cost.

***That said, It is a NOT a game above reproach, and I fully support customized decks and bug fixes, for starters. ***

But, it's no more reasonable to call this a fake magic game then for me to call most the poeple on Steam fake gamers. I lived through Pong, did you? And there have been few real cRPGs since Baulder's Gate. But, it doesn't matter, ultimately, right? What matters is if people are having a good time when they play. And, to each his own on what constitutes entertainment.

Converesly, if the game is broken for the players then it might be worthwhile to let WoTC know with our words and pocketbooks. And this holds true for all the over-priced garbage out there that is increasing in price yet is incrasingly expected to pass off as entertainment in a game of some sort.

But until something better comes along that is not a wallet-sink, I see few alternatives for a magic-themed card game -- plus I'm having fun. In fact, watching my friend nearly kill his digital avatar with fake cards last night is about the best laugh I've had in awhile. :D

Now, multiplayer seemed to be broken for my friend and I in 2HG so I should spend the rest of my creative energy writing WoTC...

Undead Green deck, is what I am taking U/G as. I've seen it at it's moments. But no deck is impossible to beat. But, then again I am a noob. If I was using it correctely you guys might be right :D

raubrey i completly deal with you.... thats a reason for many games or something other medias... Best Deck is what you gives the most fun... thats why i hate the blue deck that kill all your cards..you win - but the enemy cant do anything - thats nothing fro me....

you say all...

@jajakilroy2: When people are typing out the colors of decks, B is black, U is blue. Just so you know.

@ everyone else:
M:TG is inherently a broken game. I love playing it but I hate going to FNM events because there's inevitably some guy that just spent $300 to build a pro deck that's currently mopping up the tour. The actual meta-game to M:TG in the real world is probably LESS diverse than that inside this video game.

As great as it would be if they just let us use all the core cards in the M13 set to build what we want and went at it, it's really not all that different than what we have now with DOTP. I just wish DOTP wasn't such a buggy poorly coded multiplayer experience.

Thankyou, I am nooby. I have a question too. I bought a Premium Foil deck. What is this, and does it do anything? I already bought it just for giggles.
