Sorry, i've been away. My deck is a black/white. It's been described as a mid-range, between Aggro and Control.

Alright, it's looking good, especially for a first deck, but there are a few things you can do to stream-line it. First thing is that it's usually a good idea in TCG's to keep your deck as close to the minimum size as possible (in MtG, that's 60 cards), since it increases the odds of drawing the cards essential to your deck's strategy. You're a little heavy on lands for my tastes. In 2-colour decks, I like to run 20 - 22 lands. As such, drop 3 Plains and Swamps each.

Next are some nit-picky things. You've got a Lagonna-Band Elder in there, but only 2 Enchantments. I'd replace him with another Leonin Snarecaster if you've got or can get your hands on one. The Gray Merchant of Asphodel is a great card, but it doesn't seem to mesh with the vibe from the deck. You're trying to advance to your win-condition through attacking rather than direct damage, and there are better things you can do with 5 mana (such as another Indulgent Tormentor, but something else would do just as well). The Juggernaut is cool, but unnecessary. Maybe you'd be better off replacing it with another Loyal Pegasus. Finally, Sorin Markov is the only card that disqualifies this from the "Standard" play format and moves it into Modern format. This isn't really a problem, but Modern and Standard are separate for a reason, since older cards sometimes don't play well with newer cards. If your play group doesn't care, cool, don't worry about it.

Yeah, okay. That all sounds right. I was thinking of removing the Lagonna-Band Elder due to the fact that I rarely draw enchantments, yeah. I was told about the Sorin Markov thing, but as of now, i'm keeping it kind of casual to gain skills before I do anything in that field. I'm regularly showing up at my local T-T gaming store Evolution Games, and we have a huge crowd of casual and more competitive players so practice will always be available.

You rarely draw enchantments because you barely have any, haha.

It's not something to worry about too much, and it's just one card. Like I said, if everyone's just casual, it's all good.

You built that deck with mostly booster-pack cards, no?

I used the 2015 deck builders toolkit. Pitiful amount of duplicates. By that, I mean relatively none.

#10840 - Zarke (03/08/2015) [-]
Close enough, haha

It's not a bad place to start. It gives you a good sampling of this and that from all the colours, but you probably won't produce anything special. But yes, duplicates are important. If you've got 4 of an important card in a 60-card deck, you've got a 40% chance (I believe) of having the card you need in your opening hand.
