i threw together all the good cards that would work really well together or alone, counted them, and realized i had a deck of 132 cards before mana, after many tedious hours ive managed to widdle it down to about 90, but that still means i have over 115 or so cards in my deck and i cant bare to part with a single one :'(
Rofl, man you have to make sacrifices, I guarantee your deck will be much better when you can draw cards and be more certain about what you're getting, rather than drawing and having no clue what you might get.
My white/black deck used to have about 70 cards, maybe a bit more, and it wasn't bad or anything. But I decided to remove some cards and put in new ones, and I had to remove the majority of my big damage giving creatures, because they didn't work well with the other cards in my deck. They were just power houses. Now my deck has 54 cards, and it works wonders. I played 5 games against a friend and won each one, with at least 20 or more life.
Taking things out is a complete bitch, but the game is all about cards that cooperate with each other. I noticed I have a harder time removing instants and sorceries than I do creatures.
I still need to get some duplicates of cards I have in my deck because I don't have enough. One enchantment I only have one of, and my deck would be a lot better with three or four of them.
