    Thank you both for the insight. I have no problem admitting I know next to nothing about this particular archetype and was more or less posting initial reactions to modern lists. There's no reason...

    Re: [Deck] W/x Parfait (Tax/Rack Control)

    Along with Dreadstill, Parfait was another deck that I always admired from afar but never played. It'll be awhile before I can build the list on paper, but had some questions ideas for the Parfait...

    Re: [Deck] Dreadstill - Enter the Fist

    Wow - does this mean my playset of Rainforests and Trops might see the light of day? Do I need to get 3 more Goys? :P

    On a serious note though, did you have more of the classic Tempo game in mind?...

    Re: [Deck] Dreadstill - Enter the Fist

    Rough night out for the Dreadnought team. Went 0-3 before dropping, with 0 experience versus 2 of the 3 decks I played. Went into the rounds with an eye to test my UR list, so there was definitely...

    Nice work, sounds like they were hard games.

    @ UR: Do you feel that Lavaman is just the safer option to run MB as a 2x in UR builds over Chandra TOD? I like the idea of being able to build...

    Assuming this puzzle starts after your draw, and I didn't know what my Reanimator opponent's hand of 4 was, I'd probably go:

    Nice work! Was this with the list that had Counterbalance in it?

    Also, nice win vs. Dredge. Any particular things to note for that match?

    I like how that looks for a MonoU list. Best of luck on your event!

    Also, keep the ideas coming. "Innovation" and "radical" ideas are just "bad" ideas that ended up working out.

    Thanks everyone (Bacon, Fox) for the feedback. Yea, I feel like I missed a golden opportunity to at least go 3-1 at a meta where I had 0 clue what to expect.

    Re: [Deck] Dreadstill - Enter the Fist

    So, my focus as UR is to count to 20 as fast and consistently as possible. Compared to UW, this suggests to me:

    1. Bigger emphasis on creatures and Noughts --> more enablers
    2. Need direct...
