Generally, quite a few older deck names aren't really meaningful — they're a weird in-joke or just a random word someone pulled out of nowhere — and that tradition has been carried forward to the modern day in Legacy/Vintage as well. This is how you get the likes of Fruity Pebbles, Cephalid Breakfast, Team America (which is BUG, not ...

MUD Decks are typically decks that attempt to slow gameplay down drastically. You tend to see cards such as Tanglewire (Tapping permanents), Thorn of Amethyst (All non-creature spells cost 1 more to cast), and even Chalice of the Void on Zero or One (This prevents the powerful Moxen and Black Lotus cards in Vintage, Stops a lot of burn plays like Vexing ...

I have played all combinations of sets up through and including Realms Unraveled. Here are my thoughts: Immortal Heroes will mix in fine with RoTF and CoTG. Immortal Heroes played all on it's own would grow stale quickly Immortal Heroes and Storm of Souls together is an fun block in and of itself - maybe more fun than CoTG and RoTF. If you have an ...
