    Re: 4 Card Blind

    It's hard to not end up in draws here, because if you have 2 equal-powered threats they can usually trade or force a standoff if you would lose the race.

    Knight of Sursi is one of the few...

    It could be. Predict has been mediocre. I'll test out Omen of the Sea.

    Re: Zero Crab - The Old UW Mill Control

    I think this deck needs a proper draw engine. Narset would be nice but is probably too hard to protect in this meta, maybe 1 copy SB.

    Re: 4 Card Blind

    Good point. If Legionnaire just stays on defense, H can't swarm around it with just 2 3/3s and 4 1/1s. Legionnaire kills the biggest attacker each time, so H would only deal 7+4+3+2+1=17 which is...

    Re: [DTB] U/R Delver

    Unfortunately the biggest drawback is consuming a lot of mana. Sea Gate Stormcaller contends with the 3-4 CMC slots, not the 2 CMC slot. You need to cast another spell that turn, so it's not really a...

    Re: [DTB] UWx Miracle Control

    Good point. Even if it works, other versions of UWx control are already tier 1 so it would take substantial results to justify the combo. I'll keep the discussion to the N&D section then.
