    Re: Bumbleberry Pie

    Once you're in WBu, is Omen of the Sea (splash color) better than Hidden Stockpile (card selection + bodies in WB), Enlightened Tutor (card selection in W), or Warlock Class (card selection in B)?

    Re: 4 Card Blind

    dte and maxx! agree, but I think they're both wrong. See my other comment above. OTP maxx! can trade off everything to destroy Karn, leaving 2/2 vs nothing. Should be WL 3-3.

    That was how I arrived at the WBu version above.

    White and black are both core to the deck. Blue is only needed for the 3 cmc engines. So blue could be made into a splash if you're willing to let...

    What if maxx! just tries to kill Karn quickly instead of protecting Garruk?

    Maxx! vs dte OTP
    T1 Garruk -> 2/2 Wolf (Garruk 3 counters)
    T1 Karn -> 3/3 Construct (Karn 3 counters)

    Good points Fox. Not being able to run Wraths means overcommitting to 1-for-1s, which is very strong vs fair creatures but weak to instant threats and better token spam.

    Re: Bumbleberry Pie

    Looks better. With Trial + Umezawa you have a lot of ways to curve out punishing creature decks.

    I think you don't have enough anti-combo for an 80-card deck. Most 80-card UWx Yorion piles play 7...

    Not only are the tokens flying (can't block with Treetop), but they're 4/4s not 4 1/1s! The first 4/4 flyer is enough to win.

    Is 2 CMC too expensive vs 2+ cmc removal? I would think the card disadvantage of Force of Virtue would hurt more. Maybe not. Is your mana under pressure more than cards?
