Staxless Stax

Staxless Stax has been developed by Ray Robillard around the end of 2005. His reasoning is that Smokestack is too slow for the mana cost and based his disruption on Tangle Wire, mana denial and Crucible of Worlds.

He wrote and article about in in July 2006: Staxless Stax...the next evolution of Workshop decks?

Since then, the Tangle Wire have been replaced, one Bazaar of Baghdad has been added, Coalition Relic took over Darksteel Ingot and the sideboard has changed according to the metagame.
