Led by Talrand, Sky Summoner, the "Depths of Power" deck specializes in casting instants and sorceries. If you've got Talrand on t...he battlefield, then any time you cast an instant or sorcery spell, Talrand creates a flying Drake token creature for you. Card-drawing spells like Divination and creature-control spells like Sleep now double as a means to victory! Augur of Bolas and Archaeomancer help out by finding more instants and sorceries for you to cast. Your plan is to relentlessly attack through the air with an army of Drakes, such as Wind Drake or any of the tokens created by Talrand's Invocation or Talrand himself, while the rest of your deck keeps your opponent off balance. Use defensive creatures like Kraken Hatchling and Fog Bank to slow your opponent's attack. If the game goes long enough, summoning gigantic sea monsters like Harbor Serpent and Stormtide Leviathan will quickly end the game. Red's brute force is the perfect complement to blue's trickery. Searing Spear and Turn to Slag deal enough damage to destroy most creatures, and Searing Spear can even finish off an opponent who's low enough on life! If you've got an affinity for this deck, you may be ready to modify it to your liking. Spelltwine ramps the deck's instant and sorcery themes into overdrive: it's a sorcery that lets you recast an instant or sorcery card from your graveyard, as well as one from your opponent's graveyard. Sphinx of Uthuun is a huge flier that puts more cards into your hand. And Jace, Memory Adept is a formidable planeswalker with powerful card-drawing abilities. 2 Archaeomancer 2 Augur of Bolas 1 Fog Bank 1 Harbor Serpent 3 Kraken Hatchling 2 Mindclaw Shaman 2 Scroll Thief 1 Stormtide Leviathan 1 Talrand, Sky Summoner 3 Wind Drake 2 Divination 1 Elixir of Immortality 1 Essence Scatter 1 Hydrosurge 1 Negate 1 Rewind 1 Ring of Evos Isle 3 Searing Spear 1 Sleep 1 Smelt 1 Switcheroo 2 Talrand's Invocation 1 Turn to read more
Not so long ago, in the tiny, isolated villages of Finland, where prolonged summer days gave way to endless winter nights, people ...would pass the time by singing the many adventures of their favorite heroes: the mighty, magical men and women of ancient days. They sang of old Vainamoinen, greatest of sages and magicians, who helped create the world but never could find a woman to wed him. They sang of his friend and ally Ilmarinen, first among craftsmen, the blacksmith who forged the dome of the heavens. They sang of Louhi, the ancient lady of Northland, whose crafty wit and magical powers made her a worthy opponent for Vainamoinen himself. And they sang of Aila, Louhi's lovely daughter, who captured the hopes of the two old friends and drew them as rivals to the shores of Northland. And while these songs could still be heard, there came along a rural doctor, a scholar, who gathered and wove them together in a book he called the Kalevala. And so he created for Finns a national epic, and for the rest of the world, a work of wonder. The songs endure, the heroes live. . . . For ages 10 and up.

Cried Joukahainen, "Reverse your words, undo your spells! I will give you a hat full of silver, a helmet full of gold." "Keep your wealth," said Vainamoinen. "My coffers overflow." He chanted again, and Joukahainen sank to his chest. "Reverse your words, undo your spells! I will give you fields for plowing, meadows for pasture." "Keep your land. My farm stretches beyond sight."
