Solitary Confinement Here's by Brandon Taylor (not verified) at Mon, 09/28/2009 - 20:52

Solitary Confinement

Here's my reasoning for choosing this name. Some of the spells in deck like pacifism, mind games, and shackles alienate one creature "confining" only themselves, hence the "solitary". Also, solitary not only sounds like soltari, but also helps describe the creatures. The soltari creatures all have shadow, not being able to block or be blocked by normal creatures without shadow. Having shadow implies that these creatures are "confined" to their own world. Looking through the deck, I see a theme which is that of isolation, and I think this name justifies it well.

Deck name submission: Elusive dreams

Something about untouchable creatures combined with fade away + theft of dreams.

Had submitted a UW decklist too but I guess I focused less on shadow creatures and more on soul warden + return to hand tricks.
