Steve's comments on the deck:

Here's the contents of A Touch of Silver, my fave deck right now. It's come within a hair's breadth of winning me a Proving Ground tournament late last year.

Basic combo is Ice Shards or the Queen dying to give you a free Silver Jet; between that and Golden Comeback, and the one Back for Seconds, I can often end a game by taking three sites in one turn.

Support fire comes from the Mark of Fire, possibly tied up with the Carnival of Carnage. The Sports Car and Soul Diver are there for fun, the Dirk Wisely's are there to ramp up power and dragon resources, as the dragon Silver cards are all three-resource cards, and the Ice Diadems often mean the Queen or Silver Jet hits target for full damage.

Grove of Willows isn't used around here by anyone but me, so people attack with two or three weenies all the time. I like it when that happens. I've gotten out a third turn queen, which turned into a third turn Silver Jet, which turned into a fourth turn win...
