    Re: GB Vengevine

    I played tonight, went 2-2. Beat miracles and merfolk, lost to miracles and sneak/show. I'm convinced i need red in the deck, will detail the matches if anyone is interested.

    I made a few changes:...

    Re: GB Vengevine

    My trolls are usually 4/3 or bigger most of the time, at times as big as 6/5. It's another 4+ power threat that can power through and win fast. It's also a free discard enabler like Putrid Imp. It...

    Re: GB Vengevine

    Vengeful Pharaoh and BGH are both pretty powerful Gamble targets, and I wouldn't be opposed to something like Life from the Loam out of the sideboard, especially if the mana-base ends up being super...

    Great points from much more experienced players. I wasn't literally listing off cards in my head during each discard, but I appreciate and recognize the wisdom you are mentioning: think deeper...

    Re: 4 Card Blind

    I agree with discard and rack-effect ban ideas, I think they make sense. I still think land destruction in its different forms needs to be closely monitored. Sea's Claim is an interesting disruption...

    Just because going all-in is the goal doesn't mean you can't draw into nutty topdecks and get there. As with any combo deck, in my experience, patience is rewarded. Pick your window, and...

    Which is likely why I have a losing record to it, lol. What is your priority order against Miracles?

    Take this with a grain of salt because I have a below average record against Miracles.

    I don't fear Counterbalance playing Depths very much. It can counter the tutors and discard, but with...

    Re: 4 Card Blind

    Good catch, I wouldn't intuitively play Tongs first against anything using a creature for a win condition. I will correct to 2 draws.

    Post your best estimates, other players confirm/correct. Waiting for poor Asthereal to grind through all of them is a torture I wouldn't want to inflict on him.

    Re: GB Vengevine

    All good points. If I wasn't playing Stinkweed Imp I would have to cut the Gurmags. So far Stinkweeds are my flex slots for sideboarding, which again is a different strategy (sideboard Rock.)

    Re: 4 Card Blind

    Gotcha. I would argue that due to perfect information Therapy is definitely a ban-worthy card then. Format isn't really blind then, amiright?

    How many opponent's played around Marit Lage? Fairly decent opportunity for virtual card advantage here.

    Decklists are known ahead of time? If not, why would he name Bridge in the blind g1 while he's on the Play? If he doesn't, I get to jam Bridge and it's a draw. On the play I jam t1 Bridge, he plays...

    Re: 4 Card Blind

    Super fun contest! I realize now that The Rack is a better win condition than Scalding Tongs (in racing situations.)

    Looks like I ended up with 68

    Cool discussion, I just wanted to add in that one very potent threat that somewhat gets around grave hate is Gurmag Angler. The most commonly played graveyard hate is Surgical Extraction and Gurmag...

    Re: 4 Card Blind

    I'm waiting on R1 to see how the 'metagame' shakes out and if there will be more bans. I have like 2 decks tentatively mapped out, but they could be garbage if there is a metagame hostile to it. I...

    Re: GB Vengevine

    Great post, thanks. I did indeed mean resilience to gravehate, but also resilience to mana-disruption. I'm trying to avoid the Wasteland dilemma. Waste your 1 land, Daze your discard outlet, GG.

    Regarding the all-in version: aren't you just playing a Belcher style deck by trimming the lands way back and trying to be a t1-2 deck? You're actually playing fewer initial mana sources than Belcher...

    It was posted earlier on, the only change being that I put 1 Bonus Round into the sideboard.
