B/W in IBC

I hope that my readers have enjoyed what I've put out so far. The decks are not meant (by any means) to be the end all be all, but meant primarily to start you with playtesting material. Besides the mono decks (which are almost all horrible) these decks are meant to be competitive. I give you my honest opinion and I think that I would not give you a deck unless I considered it viable.

The deck I'm sure you've already built in your head at least, or at least started too, B/W is today's submission. B/W was given some AMAZING cards in Apocalypse, and I believe will be one of the Tier 1 decks for at least the first few weeks. Dodecapod is its bane though, but I can't imagine it being in everyone's sideboard.

You've heard the words:
"The new Hymn"
"The new Necro"
"The new Juzam"
"The new Drain"
"Half-priced Desert Twister"

This deck is 'the nuts'.

No theme involved this time, just power cards.

W/B Control

2cc
2x Addle
4x Gerrard's Verdict
4x Spectral Lynx

3cc
4x Vindicate
4x Phyrexian Arena

4cc
4x Voice of All
4x Phyrexian Scuta
4x Death Grasp
2x Soul Burn

5cc
3x Rout
1x Yawgmoth's Agenda

Land
4x Caves of Koilos
3x Dromar's Cavern
11x Swamp
6x Plains

Remove cards from target players hand. Remove creatures target player puts into play. Remove target player from the game.

I think that this design shows that U/W/B is going to be fairly nutty in the new format as well. In that version I'll probably be running a deck more like what you saw in Tokyo, with Urborg Shambler, counters, and some beautiful removal.

You can also go a more aggressive build with some more two drops. You can also of course build Zombies!

B/W Zombies
2cc
2x Addle
4x Gerrard's Verdict
4x Nightscape Familiar
4x Putrid Warrior

3cc
4x Vindicate
4x Phyrexian Arena
4x Lord of the Undead

4cc
4x Phyrexian Scuta
4x Death Grasp
2z Soul Burn

Land
4x Caves of Koilos
2x Dromar's Cavern
12x Swamp
6x Plains

These decks are extremely powerful just in initial conception. I think that either of these decks is extremely competitive and you should playtest heavily against their designs.

You also have another amazing card in Desolation Angel. Geddon plus fat beats all in one. She is mana hungry though, but there are obvious ways to get around that. The sac-lands are excellent resources in this instance.

2cc
4x Star Compass
4x Addle
4x Gerrard's Verdict

3cc
4x Vindicate

4cc
4x Voice of All
4x Phyrexian Scuta

5cc
4x Rout

7cc
4x Desolation Angel

Land
4x Ancient Spring
4x Cave of Koilos
2x Dromar's Cavern
8x Plains
10x Swamp

Optimally you want to EOT Rout, untap, tap and sac, cast Angel, win game. At least that's the plan with this deck.

The next installment will be on my family's personal favorite, U/R or commonly known as Counter-Burn. ImpulseBolt you during my endstep? The decks are going to keep getting more exciting I hope. Some of the decks coming up are Re-animator, Penumbra-Obliterate, Penumbra-Rout, and 3cElves and 3cZombies (you must know how much I like those by now). Also, we'll get into the control decks with many three color designs, including GoMar, USA, and B/W/R.

Until then,
