My Magic DotP 2012 Deck Lists

Wielding Steel

24 Lands
24 Plains

26 Creatures
4 Elite Vanguard
1 Gideon's Avenger
2 Gideon's Lawkeeper
3 Glory Seeker
2 Kitesail Apprentice
2 Kor Duelist
3 Kor Hookmaster
3 Kor Outfitter
1 Stoneforge Mystic
1 Puresteel Paladin
2 Sunspear Shikari
2 Loxodon Gatekeeper

10 Spells
1 Brave the Elements
1 Infiltration Lens
2 Kitesail
1 Pennon Blade
1 Strider Harness
2 Trusty Machete
1 Argentum Armor
1 Sword of War and Peace

The most powerful deck I have. All extra 20 cards for the deck are unlocked but I skip the expensive boss creatures and went with Weenies and Equipment Theme.

Realm of Illusion

24 Lands
24 Island

21 Creatures
1 Aether Figment
3 Blind Phantasm
4 Krovikan Mist
4 Phantasmal Bear
3 Phantom Beast
2 Phantom Warrior
2 Lord of the Unreal
1 Phantasmal Dragon
1 Sower of Temptation

15 Spells
2 Cancel
1 Disorient
2 Divination
1 Fleeting Distraction
1 Mind Spring
3 Repulse
1 Summoner's Bane
1 Time Warp
2 Counterspell
1 Concentrate

This is fairly powerful like what is currently popular in Magic's Standard format. I've not gotten all the cards but I don't think I will be using what's left to unlock. The bounce cards are especially useful against opponent's tokens and illusions. I will like to get rid of Fleeting Distraction and Disorient but there are not much choices to replace them.

Blood Hunger

24 Lands
24 Swamp

30 Creatures
2 Barony Vampire
3 Bloodrage Vampire
1 Captivating Vampire
2 Child of Night
3 Duskhunter Bat
2 Gatekeeper of Malakir
2 Quag Vampires
2 Ruthless Cullblade
1 Sangromancer
3 Tormented Soul
2 Vampire Aristocrat
2 Vampire Nighthawk
1 Vampire Nocturnus
2 Vampire Outcasts
1 Mirri the Cursed
1 Bloodghast

6 Spells
2 Feast of Blood
2 Urge to Feed
2 Vicious Hunger

I think this is a vampire/black weenie swarm deck so I removed all the expensive spells. I like the keep the deck functioning with 2-4 swamps and use the excess land for regenerating Bloodghast although there is only 1. The deck is susceptible to board wipes but then again, there are no Wrath of God or Day of Judgement to worry about. You just have to be wary of Red spells like Slagstorm or Blue's mass bounce spell, Evacuation.
