Post subject:  A Deck Somewhat Unlike Me- Sakashima the Imposter

Here's the deal. After I brought my Ixidor deck to the table a few times, it seemed that noone but me was very happy with it. Those who really liked the Ixidor segment felt that it was upstaged by the typical Blue control elements, while the person who really liked the Blue control elements hated Ixidor as a general and a number of the card choices made on his behalf. I have opted to split the decks into two- the fun, kind of janky, heavily themed Ixidor/metamorphosis deck, and the standard mono-blue creation. For the mono-Blue deck, I opted to use Sakashima, as it seemed like the least hateworthy but still viable general for the deck. Does this seem like a decent choice? Anyway, here's the deck. Criticism is very much appreciated- I want to make sure that I get this deck right.

Help, as always, is very appreciated. Thanks in advance!

EDIT: Due to the banning of Tinker (grr...), I have been forced to run Arcane Denial instead. Does anyone like another card more/have other suggestions? Also, I've been thinking that I'd like to have a version of this ready for duels in case I ever come across an EDH tournament or something. Are there any suggestions on what cards should be cut/go in? Should I add a second color?

Yeah, i liked Ixidor!!

Why people always hating on Ix??

You could run Negate instead of Arcy-D, or Brainstorm, or Telling Time, or Ponder, or Remand, or Remove Soul, or...well you get the picture...

How come you never come down and play at Lokis on Thursday??

End of Line

The new version of Ixidor is very popular, actually. It's much more casual, and aside from some complaints about Memnarch (who I will maintain is very, very on-theme, and gives the deck some much-needed power), people enjoy its presence.

I'm currently running Exclude, actually, as I like the card advantage, but I need to update the decklist anyway. I took out most of the Time Warp effects, as this deck sucks at using extra turns efficiently.

I've been out of town for the past month, and now I have class on Thursday from 6 to 7:30. I'll probably start coming up again for that 1.5 hour break where I can play, though.
