    I believe that if you have more then[sic] 20 weenies, and since most weenies cost less to cast, you will kick those card denial deck[sic] easily..weenie mix with land destruction is the happiest deck there is know to me. :)

  • 1998 February 18, Blackman, “Re: Why green should not get more powerfull”, in, Usenet[7]:
    Black does it through a weenie swarm (Please, please, take out Pump-knights!), Red through a weenie swarm backed up with direct damage, White through a weenie swarm back up with removal spells, and Blue through being annoying.
  • 1999 November 9, Bennie Smith, “Re: States Strategy”, in, Usenet[8]:
