Deck Reviews / [Casual] New player, help with sealed deck
« on: May 21, 2016, 01:00:59 am »
Hi all, new MTG player here. I'm somewhat familiar with deck building, having played some Hearthstone, but a lot of the subtleties of MTG are lost on me so far. I'm starting to get into a local group, and have just entered into a casual (5 pack) sealed deck tournament. A lot of the other players are significantly more experienced than I am, so I don't feel bad about going online for help assembling my deck and asking for some advice on how to play it.

EDIT: I should add, the tournament does not have a prize, other than pride in winning.

Here are the cards I got from my 5 (Innistrad) packs:

My (n00b) immediate thoughts were that I wanted green in my deck for the mana flexibility and land advantage, blue for some harassment and removal, and most of my artifacts. What I've yet to decide is if I want to go red/green/blue with most of the werewolves, or red/green/white with humans, and if it's worth having a splash of black in either.

Of the two players who typically win our tournaments, one almost always goes heavily blue, with lots of scry and deck manipulation (when he can), while the other has shown flexibility in producing some truly awful decks from all colors, but is typically not known for playing very fast ones.

So I'm not asking you guys to completely build my deck for me, here's my scratchpad for a G/W/Blu deck:

^ I currently have 31 cards without land and would like to get it down to 23 or so, but I'm struggling to pare it down.

Here's my scratchpad R/G/Blue deck:

^ I currently have 34 cards in this one without land.

Here's a link to my spare cards:

Any help would be appreciated!
