Classic Steal Deck.

How to:
Control the beginning by choosing cheap start cards and play for time.
Find a good balance between trading in other creatures and taking damage, you basically rely also on 1-2 runes being destroyed on your side.

Ideally you have a Dark Rebirth or a Doppelgänger ready when Arresting something.
Do not use Mecinar`s Will too early. Mainly focus on key-cards of the enemy or wait until the enemy has a second card in that row to steal to kill both.
Also if very important, if 8 Mana, you can steal a crucial card and rebirth it.

Especially in late game steal-deck players tend to overspawn the lines and run out of cards.

Daggerfall Mage has proven not to be a tremendeous gain, since in early game you simply lack the mana to play the Tome of Alteration, since you need Mana for controling the beginning.

Any hints or constructive discussion welcome.

I played 19-3 with this deck in November.

Superb deck! Just made some alterations, cuz I don't have Therana and Daggerfall Mage. With Ayrenn and Winterhold Illusionist, I just keep drawing actions from graveyard, plus reducing their cost.
