We would now like you to vote for one of several possible themes for this deck.

A theme unites the deck along a common idea. It provides a framework for card choices. It gives insight into how the deck should play.

Themes can be of different types; a theme could be based around a mechanic that an expansion uses, such as phasing or first strike. A theme can be a type of play, like control or beatdown.

Color Pair October 6
Theme October 10
Rares October 13
Creatures October 24
Spells October 27

Themes can also be conceptual. That's harder to describe, but examples might be 'Two Elements: Fire and Air', or 'Mystical Spirits.'

The color pair Red/Blue would seem to suggest the following vote.
