This is the deck I sent in for the Copycat contest. It is a mill deck, using the term from Magic, although it doesn't work quite as well as some of the MTG decks I have seen for multiple reasons, chief amongst them being that this is a VS deck, and not an MTG deck. Anyway, for those who don't know, a mill deck is designed to make the opponent have no cards left in his or her deck. In MTG, they would lose the game, although in VS, it is just a big disadvantage. I basically decided to go the route or IG, mixed in with some Secret Society, along with Manhunter Giant and Mimic at the end. Manhunter Giant is amazing at milling, being able to mill for lots of cards. When Mimic has his power, you can then take Manhunter Giant and throw him away. Lots of cards that let them get cards, but they aren't able to use them, thanks to Luthor or Joker. It reminds me of my old IG deck, with some Manhunter thrown in for good measure. Meh, it's not great, but it does allow you to mill for a lot of cards, and hopefully, they lose important cards, although, if they use the STtG/Slaughter Swamp combo, you are kind of screwed. Or, an Underworld or SSociety deck.

Awesome stuff, I can't wait to see your Destroyer, Herald deck for the Barn Door Challenge.

12 minutes after I posted? Are you stalking me?

Oh well. I don't know what I would do for Destroyer, Herald, as I feel he is too hard to build a deck off of, unless you are playing the Galactus deck. Swarming on turn 8 seems fun, and I'll see what I can do.

Wait, aren't you a teacher? So, are there times when you work, but don't teach? I would never want to be a teacher if I would have to teach (I like kids, but know personally how kids can feel and act towards teachers) and do other things. I'm sorry that you have to do so much.

I think I have an idea for a deck...

That's why I teach Art.

I have plenty of spare time this year, since the state decreed that no student who can't score a 3 on the test is allowed to have electives.
