I really want a deck that is anti-metagame. I want to punish all of the metagame strategies that are currently the most popular: Fast Mana, Cantrips, artifact mana and heavy card draw.
The Suvival deck does a lot of this but it is a sorcery speed creature deck. I do not really like playing that style of deck. If I were to build something like this on my own it would be an Esper style deck with main deck Leyline of the Void and Stony Silence.
The obvious issues are playing around and through Mental Misstep and Pyroblast/Flusterstorm against Jeskai and blue decks. The other issue is speed, you need to set up fast enough to confront shop and dredge without losing to Paradoxical Outcome.
This puzzle does illustrates the balance of the format but it also illuminates the frustration of the format.
I wanted to play discard spells to even things out but this is not a good strategy. Main deck graveyard hate is descent against a good portion of the meta-game but depending on it is also difficult as a strategy.
I'm looking for ideas to help brew something up.
