Well, I am in Florida, but I was just curious which Auburn you were referring to, since most states have a town/city named Auburn.  ;D

Yes,
I'm the only option you have for Alabama players. We are in tiny little Centre AL, a small town in northeast Alabama. I'm willing to wager we are about three hours away.

I'm still disappointed that one FL guy who dominated that one year didn't make it Nats to demonstrate the power of that 1.5 deck idea.  I was really hoping to see how he'd stack up against the top T2 players in the nation.  As such, I think the only quality win of a 1.5 deck was against RTSmaniac in a single tournament.

But I'm always interested in unique deck ideas, so it would be neat if this one got off the ground :)

I suspect that as well.  But Clift certainly qualifies as "top type 2 competition".  So either that one tournament was a fluke, or that deck type works better than most people think it would.  I just wish we could've found out for sure.

FTR, I played the "Master" and his "Apprentice" in a T1-MP game that year and I almost beat them (4 LSs). That was without SoG-NJ (I had NJ in my hand for many turns), mostly because I mistakenly checked in my watered-down 70-card deck that I used for training my playgroup. The Master hit me with both his AoCp, but I had an EC in my hand the first time and Unknown Nation the second time. The Apprentice only ever attacked me, so even though it was a MP game, I think my Disciples-Persians deck held off the 1.5 decks just fine.  ;)

Honestly the one brigade that might have enough strong enhancements for a "Type 1.5" deck to compete with a normal T2 deck is probably Clay. There's so many battle winners, 2 CBN Heroes (Peter and Stephen), Scroll of Isaiah and of course Gamaliel's Speech. One of the decks I have built right now utilizes Clay and there's only one enhancement that I have four of, and I could probably cut that to two without losing too much of the deck's strength.

Defense might be a bit trickier to find a theme strong enough to stand when only having 2 copies of its powerful cards (whether it's strong generic ECs like Proud Pharisee/Creeping Deceiver or strong enhancements like Horses and End the Battle cards).

People like me tend to throw out this kind of advice/information for the sake of anyone who reads the Message Board, even in passing. Although I was responding directly after your post, I was not necessarily directing all my comments toward only you. I am confident that the others were doing the same. I tend to word my posts with the expectation that new players are reading the Message Board as guests.

I apologize if my posts seemed condescending.

The Type 2 deck I posted in the National Tourney Winners forum was only a few cards away from being Type 1 legal. I think I made some changes to make it legal and played SirNobody with it once. I don't remember who won though.
