    16th at the SCG Classic: http://www.starcitygames.com/decks/132102

    Some interesting numbers in the maindeck and card choices in the sideboard. Can we get a tournament report?

    Re: [Deck] 12 Post

    Personally I would prefer maindeck Krosan Grip for this purpose since it is better against Sneak Attack and counterspells. With 4 Wails and 3-4 Needles, however, you're already better equipped to...

    Be wary of adding green cards. You'll have to also add more green sources to consistently cast them which cuts into the rest of the deck. Chalice on 1 is very bad, but I would play Ratchet...

    The Primeval Titan versions of 12 Post lean much less on Candelabra or Tabernacle than the C/g (i.e. mostly colorless, some green) builds that have been having the most success lately. Basically...

    I would have suggested cutting a Warping Wail since TKS is also good against combo, but I knew how much you like 4x Wails. I agree with keeping From Beyond if at all possible.

    Never board out Wails against S&S. You can cut at least one Maze and the Chasm. If possible, try to keep an All is Dust (especially if you keep From Beyond) because games can often get to where they...

    Of course. I played in Day 1 of the Open too so I'll post a report for that event later. In the Classic I faced:

    You're missing the point. I'm planning to keep Krosan Grips for blue decks and basically only considering Broken Bond for decks that play early Chalices or Blood Moons. In those situations the...
