    Losing T1 on the play is somewhat mitigated by switching from Crypt to Surgical. @Samurai: how have your games been since the switch? Otherwise it...

    If you had Lotus Petal or Mox Opal, Reanimate is castable without USea. If you had Lion's Eye Diamond then you can Wish for Echo (which gets rid of...

    Didn't realize you were adding USea for the SB trick instead of just casting it off mana rocks. 4 colors is much weaker against mana denial decks...

    Lol the 1-of Reanimate might be worth it. You can also use it to Wish for Riddlesmith (Reanimate a dead Riddlesmith). Is Surgical Extraction or...

    Cutting down to 3 colors seems more stable. Should the Blazing Volley be Pyroclasm? Volley is easier on the mana, but it only answers narrower...

    I really love Burning Wish in decks like this. Have you considered Massacre for decks like Maverick and D&T, since you actually run USea?
