Clint Oldridge won the 2008 UK 4-player Championships in April 2008 with this deck.


83 card deck (ouch) - originally got it down from 80 to 62 then back upto to 75. As I wasn't using the Magic enough I went with the extra Ice Healer and Curtains to control the game more. The theme is cheap and nasty, ideally cycling through all 6 cards a turn for maximum impact and minimum cost - the usual Cardiff deck architecture. Unfortunately it doesn't have a theme so hard to give it a name. The Thunder Birds are where I hope to get a win, should the game last that long as a 2nd kick to the deck and with Ice Blessing as a mixture of a stop (healing a target/defender at the right moment), power gain and free magic resource for the Amulets it's got a decent amount of stopping power.

Got lucky in the final with gaining power from Sam's toasting effects and managed to grab a second Gambling house that fed off TJ's Haunted/Hoods.
