Early game, I keep on countering as much as possible with Instants. Then, I mess with any hand cards with Sorceries. The rest are creature control. Planning on adding Lobotomy, but don’t know what to take out. Comments?

  1. I’m guessing this is a very casual deck and a limited collection. Dark Ritual is a sweet card but it doesn’t do much for this deck. When using a card like Dark Ritual you are trading off a valuable resource (cards) for a small mana increase but you re not using that increase for a dramatic effect. I’d suggest removing the Dark Ritual for either a creature kill spell or more disruption.

    • You are so right on your guess. I am new to MTG, and most of the cards I have are a mixed bag of old and new.

      If I remove the Dark Rituals, what do you have in mind that can replace them? Thanks.
