When you wield the "Cunning Plan" deck, your opponents will be left guessing just how big your creatures could become. By capitalizing on your opponent's uncertainty, you can make early advantages snowball into decisive victories.

In many cases, when you attack with creatures with prowess, your opponent won't block for fear of you having a spell or two. In these cases, casting some spells to get in extra damage might be tempting - but you might be better off saving those spells for next turn so your opponent will continue to think twice about blocking.

While you'd prefer tp be aggressive with your prowess creatures, this deck has enough staying power that you don't always need to get off to a fast start. Quiet Contemplation and Goblinslide will help you survive well into the late game, and cards like Cunning Strike and Weave Fate will provide more fuel for your enchantments and prowess creatures.

Your most explosive card is Dragon-Style Twins. Sometimes, it's best to cast another threatening creature before Dragon-Style Twins in an attempt to "bait out" an opposing removal spell. Of course, if you don't have any bait, you might as well hust cast your creature with double strike and hope your opponent doesn't have an answer!

There are a number of other strong Fate Reforged cards to try out in this deck. Monastery Siege is an excellent fit, as it gives you a choice of finding more spells to trigger prowess or protecting your permanents from removal spells. Another great option is Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest. Like Dragon-Style Twins, this legendary creature can lead to quick victories thanks to the strength of double strike.
