According to those commenting, the card that this deck would be built around was mediocre at best, however, the owner was willing to pony up $40,000 for assistance, looking to use it in the upcoming Magic The Gathering Pro Tour.

The end goal here has been explained by a user called AdOutAce, stating; "In an effort to make money, some savvy (or not so savvy) collectors will buy vast quantities of a unique card while it is inexpensive in hopes someone will find a way to combine it with other cards to make a powerful or popular deck. It's like playing the stock market."

The original post has been edited with all information deleted - there's no saying if this build ever went ahead. However, the fact that the post is still up means that there may still be a chance.
