Occasionally I have this wave of nostalgia come over me. It makes me want to build a really stupid deck, and I mean really, really stupid. I occasionally remember standing in my local store, opening an Urza’s Legacy booster, and jumping with glee at seeing [card]Mother of Runes[/card]. I do love competitive magic, but the reminder of when and how I learned to play keeps the game fun when I’m racing for day two and I’m mana screwed.
So I decided, I’m going to build a stupid deck, it is going to belong to me, and hopefully someone new to the game will take this article and have as much fun with the deck as I did with an Angels deck I got from Brian David Marshall over a decade ago.
So the theme… Yes every stupid deck has to have a theme. Back in the day, Vampire decks were considered stupid, as were Dragons; however Standard Vampires and Dragonstorm have rendered my quips mute. I didn’t think Minotaurs would ever be cool, so I rolled with that.
So I started to look for cards. I came across [card]Didgeridoo[/card] – that was begging to be abused. Then I thought, well, â€œChangelings are Minotaurs right?â€
[card]Changeling Titan[/card] would make a funny and dumb card to drop with [card]Didgeridoo[/card] and [card]Kazuul Warlord[/card] would make my creatures better, faster, stronger. [card]Changeling Hero[/card] could also bring the beats with lifelink and cheap acceleration from [card]Llanowar Elves[/card], [card]Woodland Changeling[/card], and [card]Gemhide Sliver[/card] could be hilarious. [card]Runed Stalactite[/card] and [card]Kheer Keep[/card] would also carry the beat train forward.
At this point my ideas had run away, and I needed to consolidate the deck into something I could actually play – with a massive grin on my face when I play an [card]Elvish Harbinger[/card] with the [card]Didgeridoo[/card] on the battlefield.
I started to look towards more land that I could use to keep the fire burning after my initial onslaught of stupidity. [card]Swampyard[/card] would do nicely; allowing me to keep my fatties up and running, and [card]Riptide Laboratory[/card] would make my creatures [card]Blinking Spirit[/card].

Everyone has a friend that says, â€œI only play casual, I don’t want to play against a tournament deck!â€ I can now reply, â€œYeah fine, how do you feel about Rolf Harris?â€
