The immediate thing that popped out to me first with this pool was the strength that I had in white, particularly with the Adarkar Valkyrie. The next thing was the large number of artifacts. Though my blue pool wasn’t my biggest, it was pretty strong, particularly with the interactions with white. Here is the deck I created:

7 Island
9 Plains


16 lands

1 Arcbound Worker
1 Court Homunculus
2 Amrou Scout
3 Arcbound Stinger
1 Myr Retriever
1 Narcomoeba
1 Avian Changeling
1 Flickerwisp
1 Frogmite
2 Sanctum Gargoyle
1 Mulldrifter
1 Reveillark
1 Adarkar Valkyrie
1 Errant Ephemeron
1 Myr Enforcer


19 creatures

2 Bonesplitter
1 Runed Stalactite
1 Echoing Truth
1 Bound in Silence


5 other spells

I did notice that there were three Empty the Warrens which really makes me want to look at a Storm deck, but in the end I just don’t think it is strong enough. The other eye-catcher is Progenitus, but I think that without Tooth and Nail or a massive amount of ramp (more than 2 Kodama’s Reach) it just isn’t something that is very possible.

So, what would you build?

    Just for fun I would try to go 5 color defense deck. Adarkar Valkyrie, Reveilark, flickerwisp, bound in silence, penumbra spider, kodama’s reach (2), stinkweed imp, pthysis, death denied, skeletal vampire and the win con, progenitus. It would not be competitive by any means but it would be epic if just once you killed an opponent with progenitus.
