  1. Re: [Deck] Canadian Threshold (aka RUG Delver, Tempo Thresh)

    In my opinion this outweighs the likelihood of your opponent stumbling into a stifle by reading your fetchland wrongly.
    If your opponent sees Wooded Foothills they are probably more likely to assume...

    Re: [Primer] UB Death's Shadow

    Yes Wrenn is good against Wasteland decks, Delver is hardly a panacea though because if you play turn 1 Fugitive Wizard on the draw and your opponent resolves turn 2 Wrenn then they just downtick and...

    Re: [Primer] UB Death's Shadow

    It's also a missing-the-wood-for-the-trees observation that doesn't tell us anything relevant


    Your threats don't provide value or have evasion because they are so cheap. If you had a 1 mana 7/7...

    Re: [Primer] UB Death's Shadow

    Ok


    Ok, although I think you are putting slightly too much emphasis on this anti-wraith idea


    - You need an argument for why cutting delver from UB leads to a "worse" midrange deck. Why must...

    Re: [Primer] UB Death's Shadow

    This is almost exactly what I said except "Delver is the backbone of traditional UB Shadow" is not a statement that has any value. "JVP is a concession to the lack of a third colour" yes this is...

    Re: Commander 2019 Spoilers

    K'rrik might be good as a kind of Tinfins/Spanish Inq/MonoB Reanimator hybrid deck
    It's pretty good with Shallow Grave because it's a lifelink managorger hydra. If you run out of life and it has...

    Re: [Primer] UB Death's Shadow

    Well the argument is that the extra card advantage from JVP allows you to play more of an attrition game with Hymn/Thoughtseize flashbacks, and then you can ride to victory on the back of 1...

    Re: [Primer] UB Death's Shadow

    If you're playing the no-2-drop delver version of the deck then Contentious Plan seems good.
    If you're playing the more controlling version of the deck with hymn/JVP then it obviously won't work...

    Re: [Primer/Deck] Pox

    Yes, not having the ability to take advantage of Lili's -2 effect is a drawback in this deck. The problem is that once you start to play creatures then it in general it makes Smallpox worse. You can...

    Re: Foundry Inspector vs Arcum's Astrolabe>

    Correct
    Foundry Inspector doesn't "Produce Mana" so it doesn't interact with the snow symbols at all, even if Foundry Inspector somehow becomes Snow

    Re: [Primer/Deck] Pox

    There is also that Endless Atlas

    I think the prevalence of Wrenn and Six is a pretty big problem for Pox currently.
    Elderspell might be more well positioned than it was immediately post-WAR, or...

    Re: [Deck] Vial Goblins

    I think it would see play in Vial Goblins as basically a Ringleader / Matron split card
    For example if you really need a card to deal with an opponent's threat, even if you don't have much mana and...

    I haven't handled many foils from the set but I have noticed it a little bit.
    For example I have foil and nonfoil cave of temptations in a pauper deck (waiting for the last foil one) and I have to...

    Re: BTL Gifts Pact Updated for WAR/MH1

    I get what you're saying but I don't think a 6/6 on turn 4 or 5 tips the scales in your favour against these decks

    After testing this deck it was overall way too clunky.
    The mana is very bad and...

    Re: BTL Gifts Pact Updated for WAR/MH1

    Ghostly Flicker is out of the question because it can't target enchantments.

    Unburial Rites could be a SB option maybe, or it could replace Genesis.

    I looked at the Izzet Reborn decks but I...

    Re: [Deck] Strawberry Shortcake

    I've played at stores where for small events the entry is $5 or so and the payout is like
    0-1 Wins: 1 Pack
    2 Wins: 2 Packs
    3 Wins: 3 Packs

    In this structure a draw is exactly equivalent to a...

    Re: BTL Gifts Pact Updated for WAR/MH1

    Yeah the only way to play Harmless Offering is through Astrolabe + Mastermind (you have BTL to find it), but you can also grind out the opponent and win with random beats (Strix/Coatl/Manland) +...

    Re: Re-entering Legacy - Mono-black Reanimator

    It's so much worse vs spot removal, strix, jace-bounce, doesn't help to flashback therapy, etc, so I'm not overly excited about the fact that it's only 3 mana.
    It does seem like a potential upgrade...
