Deck Description

My friend wanted a deck that he could meme in tournaments and still maybe pull off a win. I tried my best and this is what I could come up with. would like some input.

How to Play

hope you get to turn 3 with only 3 rocks on the board. control both boards until you have some form of way to win.

I don't think I can really.. Your S.b is good and fairly wide your mainboard has a clear plan.... your really soft to delver here with the lack of removal so possibly tailor your sb with spells like bolt and mana tithe for that matchup?

i've played a 3 colour Restore Balance deck for a while (Jund colours) and have done ok with it, mine is a lil heavier on Borderposts than your list tho, if i was going to suggest anything you HAVE to take Surgical Extraction out of the sideboard, cascading into that would be backbreaking.

Metalwork Colossus and Yahenni's Expertise have been awesome editions from the new set. if you have 3 borderposts in play the Colossus costs 2 mana for a 10/10, if you have 4 Borderposts in play then its free. play a free 10/10 right after wiping all your opponents lands and they often just scoop :) Yahenni's has allowed running 4 copies of Restore Balance again instead of the 3 copies most people used to run. double duty as a sweeper too. Have never tried Chandra but seems like it'd be strong, was never impressed with Ajani when i tried it but your experience might be different.

thanks, we had Chandra in cause there was some confusion about the way her first ability interacts with restored balance, now that we found out the interaction, she isn't nearly as good in the deck as we thought
