The ''Sky Slam'' deck lets you take control of the game with tricky blue spells, and then your big flying creatures will really deliver a beating. You won't always attack much in the beginning of the game, but by the end, you'll be on top of the world. Blue magic is all about control. Unsummon slows your opponent down by bouncing a creature back to his or her hand. Besides preventing the creature from damaging you, this also makes your opponent waste time paying for the creature again!

Mana Leak and Remove Soul can stop your opponent's plans outright. Use Mana Leak when your opponent can't pay the extra mana. Don't waste Remove Soul on a tiny creature-you can be sure your opponent will try to drop a bigger threat soon enough. If a big enemy creature does manage to hit the table, you can lock it down withDehydration.

Your creatures can also help you set the pace. Horned Turtle blocks your opponent's ground creatures while your deck gets going. Sage Owl lets you set up what you'll draw for the next four turns. Spiketail Hatchling can make your opponent wait an extra turn to safely play that big spell. Meanwhile, Thieving Magpie and Aven Fisher keep you a few cards ahead of the competition.

Puppeteer can either stop one of your opponent's creatures from attacking or untap one of your tapped creatures to block. Fleeting Image makes a great blocker. You can wait until it deals combat damage, then use its ability to bounce it back your hand. The damage to your opponent's creature still happens, and your Fleeting Image is safe!

Once you get enough lands in play, you can drop your big threats and your big defenders. Urza's Armor helps keep hordes of little creatures at bay while Air Elemental rules the skies. With no way to block all your creatures, your opponent will soon be defeated by the air assault.

sorry to bust your bubble,but gale force in CHK does 5 damage to every creature with flying. G'bye!
I hate timmies

Sorry to bust YOUR bubble, but gale force was made LONG after this pre-con was.

And besides, its a blue deck: Blue can find ways to destroy things like gale force.

Anyways, i am fond of this deck. It is a nice, quaint little deck that annoys people (in my area at least). I particularly like the fact that they put urzas armor in it, although it seems out of place.

i agree with I hate timmies. I like the idea of the deck, byt there's just no reason for Urza's Armor to be in here.

ps... Sunburts decks suck! stick with the basics (ex. domain)

Sunburst rox. the fifth dawn set comes with so many ways to get mana, that you dont even hav to wory about not getting all of the colrs! If you add fist of suns (You may pay S,P,I,M,F, other then pay mana cost) In it, thjen you'll have an army of hi leveled creatures!

this deck has the worst rare's ever
1/21/2008 9:47:26 AM
the rares do suck but this deck has some good flying cards. also, i love phantom warrior because i give him neurok stealthsuit and it turns out for a quick win, as long as i counter and bounce-back all my opponents creatures.

howdy! i realize this is kind of off-topic however i had to ask. does building a well-established website such as yours take a large amount of work? i'm completely new to writing a blog but i do write in my diary everyday. i'd like to start a blog so i can share my own experience and thoughts online. please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for new aspiring blog owners. thankyou!

first off i would like to say fantastic blog! i had a quick question which i'd like to ask if you do not mind. i was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing. i've had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there. i truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. any recommendations or tips? kudos!
