                         MAGIC: THE GATHERING
     The purpose of this guide is to document very powerful decks that can
     be built in the two listed Microprose games.  As of this update, there
     are only two decks, but I am always willing to add any others that
     anyone out there is willing to send to me.
     I define power as a deck that controls the game or wins within a couple
     This deck wins most of it's games during the very first turn, making it
     one of the most powerful decks the Microprose games can produce.
      Lands         Spells               Artifacts
      8 Forest      4 Fireball           4 Black Lotus
      8 Mountain    4 Channel            4 Mox Emerald
      4 Taiga                            4 Mox Ruby
      Total Cards: 40
     In real life, this deck would cost over $4,000 to say the least, thanks
     to the Black Lotus and Moxes.
     The deck is very easy to play.  If in your initial hand, you can get
     at least 1 Black Lotus, 1 Mountain, 1 Channel, and 1 Fireball, you
     win the game.  Here's how...
     (You could get three of the Moxes in your initial hand and get the 
     first turn kill as well, but the cards listed above and explained 
     below use less cards so I explained it instead.)
     Play the Mountain and Black Lotus, then sac the Black Lotus for three 
     green mana, using two to play Channel. Then play Fireball (tapping 
     the Mountain), using the Channel to sac 19 of your life. For that last 
     point of damage, be sure to use the last remaining green mana from the 
     Black Lotus or else next step you'll take one point of damage from 
     mana and loose the game.
     You could instead get three Mox into inital hand and get the same
     results, but you would need at least two Mox Emerald.  You would need
     two green mana to cast Channel.
     Deck Name: Blue Death
     This deck controls the game out right.
      Lands          Spells                Artifacts
      16 Island      4 Ancestral Recall    4 Black Vise
                     4 Braingeyser         4 Mox Sapphire
                     4 Time Walk
                     4 Timetwister
      Total Cards: 40
     This deck in real life would also cost well over $4,000 to purchase.
     This deck defines what blue has always done best: Control.  With
     Ancestral Recall and Braingeyser, you draw enough cards to find all
     the Black Vise.  All the while you play you play Time Walk to keep
     your turns going and Timetwister to resuffle and have a second try
     at finding the cards you need.
     If done correctly, you can have all four Black Vise in play and have
     several cards in your opponent hand.  When I say several, I mean more
     than a dozen or two.

     * The deck MUST be powerful.  Deck that can't win right away, or control
     the game in some fashion aren't powerful.
