Does anyone else see how wicked Pandimonium can be? Here is some food for thought.
1st Turn: Suspend Lotus Bloom. Play Birds with your stomping Grounds.
2nd Turn: Play a mountain and smack a Char to your opponants head.
3rd Turn: Play a land and a creature.
4th Turn: Lotus Bloom comes into play. Play a land, play Pandimonuim and then...Play this.
Hmmm, what you think. I'm going to make a deck with Pandimonium and get back to you.

The 3rd turn land must be a Sacred Foundry Followed by a Enduring Renewal.
Mmmmmmmmm Now that will get silly.
Even if its not a infinite loop you dont have to sac a creature to keep a 8/8 in play you let it die and replay it when it comes back to your hand.
Yes Yes I know its a tall order but hey who cares.

I've already built a Pandemonium deck and it's just much more consistent...
Want a showdown, David?

This is the deck I came up with eventually.
//NAME: Timmy's Day Out (Casual)
4 Birds of Paradise
4 Lightning Serpent
4 Yavimaya Dryad
4 Phyrexian Soulgorger
2 Giant Solifuge
4 Spectral Force
4 Protean Hulk
4 Lotus Bloom
4 Gruul Signet
4 Gemstone Mine
4 Gruul Turf
Check out the awesome use of Lightning Serpent and Pandemonium.
I was against using Solifuge in a casual deck, but 2 will do.
In my mind Casual means les than R1000 decks.

Casual for me is like what you can scrape together out of the common box and maybe borrow from people...R500 if you really have to spend, but ideally it should come at very little cost. Maybe R60 for the food you buy whilst building it.

Tell that to the guys with casual decks with a manabase of R1000.

Actually, sod what I said last. Casual decks can cost more than competitive decks, the only reason they're casual is because they generally revolve around a "crap rare" or a "crap theme" that is basically non-competitive but fun and/or funny to play/watch being played. Thus/Hence/Therefore/Visa Ve/Ergo price has nothing to do with the definition of a casual deck.
Just my opinion.

Cost has nothing to do with a casual deck. Its actually very difficult to distinguish a casual deck from a competitive deck. Some people think counters and land destruction are strictly reserved for competitive play. IMO the whole "casual" style of play allows you to play with cool cards that never make tourney decks. I will always have fond memories of my myr deck and my 5-Colour sunburst deck from back when I started magic.

Anyway, getting back to the deck. I've tried to think of a GR answer to tutoring for Pandemonium, but can't think of any. Any thoughts on the deck?

Casual decks IMO is decks that's unviable due to consistancy, but a lot of fun to play, because if you can pull off that unlikely event, you'll win.
Most combo start off as casual. It's an idea, rough, and untested. :-)
Timmy / Johnny decks... Big creatures, resolving that warp world, or the enduring ideal (which eventually became viable).
