5CC How Long Will You Survive?

Average: 
4.29412
node_image: 

The deck that gets the most cards whenever a new set comes out is 5cc. Today I am going to talk about everybody's favorite (I mean least) match up. This deck was one I have hated since its conception it just gets too many good cards. However it was flawed in the fact it ran so many non-basics. However until Alara Reborn it could do that with little to no problem, but now that's a different story. Alara Reborn has done an outstanding job of flipping the meta game on its ear. I am going to delve into the problems with 5cc in the new meta.

The Basics: Deck Thinning

Average: 
4.25
node_image: 

Deck thinning is a popular strategy in many tournament decks.  I'm sure you've noticed how many decks run multiples of the Onslaught fetch lands, for example.  But I think that lots of players don't even realize the real benefits of it.  In fact, I recently had a friend ask me, "why is deck thinning such a popular strategy?"

Balancing Cascade

 Today's article is a continuation from my Hyper Cascade article I posted ealier.

The basic premise is still the same. Playing any cheap Cascade spell flipping cards until you hit the only available target in Restore Balance. At that point we differ from the HyperGenesis gameplan.

Winning the Triple Reborn Draft

Average: 
4.42857
node_image: 

There are many who don't recommend triple Reborn draft. Perhaps what deters them is the lack of mana fixing in an all-gold set - which badly needs mana fixing. Or perhaps it is the fact that drafting without a large set like Shards of Alara means that cards with core functions like straightforward disenchant effects, countermagic or mana acceleration are missing (since these are usually printed in the first large set of a block).

Bragging on Hyper Cascade

Average: 
4
node_image: 

I am writing this article to clear the air a little about inventiveness. Many of you have heard about the "broken" combo that involves the Cascade mechanic with HyperGenesis.
