    Re: Buried Phoenix

    I was just thinking about sideboarding with the Bob/Petal list. Against grindy blue control decks, would you side out some/all petals?

    Congrats on the great result, Whitefaces!

    Between your and Tommy Ashton's lists, I like that you cut Liliana, the Last Hope from the sideboard. The card is obviously great against Miracles and...

    Re: Buried Phoenix

    What I find really interesting, is that there seem to be two schools of thought about how to play the deck. Some comments about cards like Counterbalance or Tombstalker mention that they don't...

    Re: Buried Phoenix

    So far, the SB plan with Bridges is untested. I don't think Bridge would have played well together with the TITIs I ran at the last event :wink:

    Just for the record: I tried out Thing in the Ice and it wasn't great. It's ok against decks like Eldrazi, but a real liability against control decks. Whitefaces suggested as much when we briefly...

    Ensnaring Bridge is also on my short list of cards I want to try. I really liked it in the SB of Mentor Miracles, when all the Entreat lists were playing Moat against the then new Eldrazi deck.

    What type of white sideboard cards do you mean? When I think about white, the first thing that comes to mind are hatebears. But both Canonist and Containment Priest hinder our own game plan. Removal...

    Re: [DTB] Turbo Depths

    We usually run a split. The stock slow lists have 3 Decays in the MD and 1-2 Trophy in the SB, Negator's BUG list has 2/2 in the SB. Sometimes, the uncounterability really is important. Also, while...

    I'm not him, but here are two reasons:
    1. There are situations in the late game where you don't have 4 mana to hardcast Snuff Out but also can't afford to pay 4 life. Dismember lets you manage that...

    Our matchup against Delver is great anyway, so there shouldn't be a need for another SB card.

    2 Bayous are fine. You can play Blooming Marsh or Llanowar Wastes over the 3rd Bayou. It's even possible to do well without duals at all: http://mtgtop8.com/event?e=19262&d=322137&f=LE ;)

    Re: Pirate Stompy

    Well, 19-20 is the average amount of lands you often see. But those decks are Dragon Stompy and run Spirit Guides (we could run Lotus Petal) and Blood Moon to shut off Wasteland.

    Re: Esper Delver (UWB Tempo)

    The amount of red cards after boarding is difficult to predict. If they've got Moons, they will be in the deck. If a Miracles or Blade opponent doesn't know your list, they might bring in Pyroblast...

    For not letting people enter the tournament anymore: They said that the hall was full and they couldn't use one of the other rooms. But they want to make sure stuff like that won't happen again.

    I honestly don't know. The Therapy version is great against combo, but Stifle is better in the mirror and against those greedy Bant/Deathblade and Grixis Control decks. Personally, I prefer MD...

    Storm is just a bad matchup for Delver decks with only blue disruption. In a metagame with a lot of Storm, I'd just play the Therapy version.

    Re: [DTB] Grixis Tempo

    The problem with Stifle against Storm is that Stifle doesn't shut down their engine. They can still cast their Past in Flames and just flashback their discard spells before tutoring the Tendrils.

    I agree. The Stifle lists with more Anglers and without Pyromancer feel pretty strong. After you mentioned JPA's list in one of your articles, I tried out his main deck last weekend and got a 5:0 in...

    I'd prefer a cantrip over the 2nd Bolt. But I usually keep most hands with at least 2 lands.
