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

    SorboOne just won the Legacy Format Playoffs online; I like his list w/ 3x Stifle. Mine is very similar except I'm playing an Oko over TNN and FoN over the 2nd Pierce. I agree with only having 2...
  2. Re: [Deck] Canadian Threshold (aka RUG Delver, Tempo Thresh)

    You're not wrong about the pace of change. We also had a lot of Legacy events in a short period including GP ATL in between two SCG events which drove a ton of testing. Daryl Ayers drove a ton of...
  3. Re: [Deck] Canadian Threshold (aka RUG Delver, Tempo Thresh)

    Probably Surgical, Sylvan Library, or Dismember.
  4. Re: [Deck] Canadian Threshold (aka RUG Delver, Tempo Thresh)

    With these decks moving to Hexdrinker over Arcanist, it seems to me that Waterlogged Grove may be the go-to spell land. The deck is more dependent on G than R to win in most games.

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

    I honestly thought Hexdrinker was completely unplayable but actually the first copy of that card has been quite good so far. I do recommend 1 copy. I've never tried Reclaimer but that card has been...
  6. Re: [Deck] Canadian Threshold (aka RUG Delver, Tempo Thresh)

    Thoughtseize definitely pulls it's weight in the combo matchups, but fetching Badlands or USea early can be very awkward depending on your opening 7. In the post-board games when you know your...
  7. Re: [Deck] Canadian Threshold (aka RUG Delver, Tempo Thresh)

    Three of the top25 decks at the SCG Team Open this weekend were variations on a stifle-less, Dreadhorde Arcanist RUG Delver shell.

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

    Thanks for the heads up @meite -- this was a good watch. Played out pretty similarly to how I've been doing locally. If only I was as good as Jarvis.. ;)

    I think that video showcases how well...

    Re: [Primer] UB Death's Shadow

    The primary difference is Arcanist is generating mana. With JVP you still have to pay the cost. Flashing back a cantrip with Arcanist so you can make your third land drop and basically have 4 mana...

    Re: [Deck] bUrg Tempo

    4C Delver mirror in the finals of the MTGO Legacy Challenge, sounds like kentaro_hokori had quite a run -- apparently not losing a single game in the swiss (GWP 1.0000) and going 6-1 in games in the...

    Re: [Deck] bUrg Tempo

    The best black spell is Plague Engineer that you gain access to form the splash, imo. TS is whatever and Decay is just a nice hedge in the MD.
  12. Re: [Deck] Canadian Threshold (aka RUG Delver, Tempo Thresh)

    My main issue with UR has nothing to do with Arcanist really, he is a house. I'm struggling with YP being lackluster in the face of W&6 being everywhere and the deck feeling too threat-light without...
  13. Re: [Deck] Canadian Threshold (aka RUG Delver, Tempo Thresh)

    Noticed Liz Lynn playing what looked to be a very similar last at the Team Open last week upon review of the Twitch stream, but I guess no one else is actively down this path.
  14. Re: [Deck] Canadian Threshold (aka RUG Delver, Tempo Thresh)

    Has anyone been playing with Dreadhorde Arcanist & Wrenn in RUG colors? I have been playing UR Delver in prep for GP ATL for about a month now to some solid success (fetching basic island T1 can be...
  15. Re: [Deck] Canadian Threshold (aka RUG Delver, Tempo Thresh)

    Do you really want a UU sorcery speed answer to Marit Lage when they can often force an EOT activation in a world where Vapor Snag exists?

    Re: [Primer] U/R Delver

    The basic mountain is absolutely the worst land in the deck, but it plays a crucial role in several matchups. The manabase is totally fine as:
    2 Island
    1 Mountain
    3 Volcanics
    4 Scalding Tarns
    4...

    Re: [Primer] UB Death's Shadow

    I wanted it to be, but I ran through 3-4 leagues and it was just too low impact to be eating my drawsteps every turn even in places like Elves where you'd want it. I've been much happier packing 2x...

    Re: [Primer] UB Death's Shadow

    Try a copy or two of Echoing Truth. Nice out to Marit Lage and problematic permanents that also pitches to force.

    Re: [Primer] UB Death's Shadow

    Great write up, thanks. Iíve been playing a ton of leagues online in the hopes of finding a mix of disruption I like. I really like Dismember, to the point where I am now playing 4. I also have...

    Re: [Primer] UB Death's Shadow

    Great write-up, thanks aedrew. I honestly dread the red prison matchups, I seem to be on the losing end of a 3 mana permanent every game. The Eldrazi versions are no cakewalk either. Here's what...

    Re: UBg Death's Shadow

    Agrippa, I can definitely understand main deck inclusion of Decay over Push for a number of reasons, but I think completely cutting Dismember/Snuff Out is really limiting your ability to lower your...

    Re: [DTB] Team America (BUG Delver)

    Imo: Tombstalker > Goyf > Leo > TNN

    The real threat that closes games in this deck is Tombstalker if you enable him to be successful. TNN is slow and allows your opponent too much time to recover...

    Certainly an excellent build to maximize Tarmogoyf. This is likely very strong against the fair matchups and specifically seems strong vs Eldrazi. Itís always an interesting line to walk between...

    Re: [Deck] Team America (BUG Delver)

    I tested with BUG Leo (Jacob Wilson's list), but it was still pretty slow vs combo for my taste and if you drew the push/decay/TNN half of your deck you simply couldn't close games quick enough. It...
