Might I suggest building something that is a direct attack on the decks that are popular?
Maybe it makes me a toll but the Deathtouch ping deck is awesome. I have a mono green deck I call "rawwwrrr" which is 1 and 2 drop creatures and blood rush with titanic and Giant growth, pytoburst, Burst of strenth... no one expects a nightshade peddler to run in with 10 damage turn three. I got a Experiment One with 3 counters on it, 2 a giant growth and two Slaughterhorns for 16. If they get to turn 6 im basicly dead but I can easily win by turn 4.
try to think about what they play and what wrecks it.
