Battle for Zendikar Brews, pt. 10 – Colorless

This is strictly a thought experiment. I was looking at Todd Anderson’s and Brian Braun-Duin’s video on SCG yesterday. Anderson was playing a version of Esper Dragons (and winning), while BBD was playing a monogreen deck. That latter deck had plenty of “spell lands”, such as [card]Foundry of the Consuls[/card], [card]Sanctum of Ugin[/card] and [card]Spawning Bed[/card]. It had total of ten such lands.

I thought to myself, “well, the mana is very good in the format, but the format also has plenty of good colorless lands, maybe we could do a colorless deck?”. Can we? Probably not, because colorless creatures are always much higher on the curve than similar creatures with colors (with the expection of [card]Wurmcoil Engine[/card]). It will be a slow deck, but I wouldn’t completely discount it. Just mostly.
