Survival of the Fittest - 12
A green based deck that uses Survival of the Fittest to search out silver bullets as well as power out multiple Vengevines in a single turn thanks to Basking Rootwalla.

Merfolk - 8
The quartet of Lord of Atlantis, Merrow Reejerey, Merfolk Sovereign and Coralhelm Commander backed by free counterspells like Force of Will and Daze are swinging games in its favor.

Tendrils Combo - 6
Cheap mana effects are plentiful in Legacy and when combined with the storm spell, Tendrils of Agony, games could end in a single turn.

Junk - 5
When you combine green, white and black into one deck, you get the best creatures like Tarmogoyf, Knight of the Reliquary and Dark Confidant, paired with the best removal in the form of Swords to Plowshares, Vindicate and Pernicious Deed.
