    Re: [Primer] UB Death's Shadow

    Ah, yeah, I think I'd be more likely to consider that a sideboard card, but I could see it being maindeck material in certain metas. Like, if you are apt to see lots of Chalice, or Depth, for...

    He got another 5-0 yesterday (or at least one, while I was tuned in).

    I think Gurmag is likely the tertiary threat you generally want, unless there is some really compelling metagame factor to...

    Well, in Legacy (and Vintage to a lesser extent) we actually do still get this, in Sylvan Library.

    Of course, my over-flatting of Green's contemporary Legacy "role" was over-flat. But still, in...

    No, it would die by the time you got priority to activate your Pendelhaven.

    The key is is that SBA (state based actions) are checked whenever anyone would gain priority, but before they actually...

    I do think a sort of "Rock-Paper-Scissors" balance is good. Or, at least a sort of notional Aggro-Combo-Control dynamic. But Legacy is a beast that tends to blur lines. Again, to me, that is not...

    Re: Decks to Beat? (2020 edition)

    Right, I was agreeing, essentially, but just noting that I don't think skepticism is bad, per se. But, like basically anything else, it can be used as a poor means and/or a spurious end.

    How would you actually qualify that assertion though?

    Couldn't it well be the case that Blue threats "seem better" precisely because they are aided by Blue Cantrips and Blue disruption?

    That's not going to work if you Animate Dead a Ballista. It would ETB as a -1/0 and die before you could ever activate the ability, it doesn't matter how much mana you have.

    Because they actively fear what big data can do, most likely.
