    Re: What are your favorite card cycles in MTG?

    The unofficial megacyle of 2 mana creatures that are way above the rest:

    SFM - Snappy - Bob - YP - Goyf

    Other than that, the Volrath's Stronghold cycle (unfinished, but still), the Urza...

    Re: The Fast and Teferius: Core Set 2021

    Even then, most Walkers instantly generate CA once they ETB and you can't prevent that aside from countering them (or the activated ability). Since the trend is towards more cheaper, aggressively...

    Exactly my thoughts. Walkers can instantly create an advantage nowadays - so even if you remove them, you fall behind.

    Re: The Fast and Teferius: Core Set 2021

    Abrupt Decay and Trophy couldn't make a dent into Oko usage. I doubt that a more narrow card with a slightly easier mana cost would help alot, considering decks right now could easily run those BG...

    The RG shell is kinda interesting, but I wonder if the Keruga restriction is worth it in the current Oko meta. Red blasts would make quick work of any of that nonsense.

    How viable would Jegantha...

    This version of the deck desperately needs better ways to deal with Oko, especially given its abundance in the metagame.

    Chaos Warp and Beast Within were already suggested (also Karn fetching...

    Re: [Deck] Death and Taxes

    This list seems a tad bit too "basic" for my taste. It doesn't feel like it's really breaking Yorion the way other decks do.

    The deck should be able to support Astrolabe with enough Snow Plains...

    Maybe it's low demand due to LGS being closed down due to Corona. Or maybe it's because the online meta had a head start and everything has already been figured out.

    Would Lurrus be fine if you can't run it as companion? Not being able to build your deck around it and not getting it on demand would reduce its power level quite a bit.
