    Re: Why does no one play Doomsday

    This is almost a Gedankexperiment, but the only way to have a definitive answer would be to look at the winning % of a given player with the deck vs the overall number of matches played. Then you...

    Re: [Primer/Deck] Pox

    Plagues are fine vs tribal, but, if you want to go that route, play at least a third copy. I prefer a different and more varied choice of answers, though. My usual anti-aggro weapons are:

    Re: [Primer/Deck] Pox

    This is weird. Standstill.deck are usually good matchups for pox. If you have the usual waste+factory package, alongside bloodghast or nether spirit, a resolved standstill is at least 50/50 if not...

    Would you mind posting a reference list? If I had it right you play no scroll, no lock and no stalker, what's in in their place? Thanks!

    @ Roguebuild

    It's clear that we are missing at least one piece to play the control role properly. The Bg version (with SDT, yes) plays it better, but it's way too convoluted. Comparing to UW...

    Re: [Primer/Deck] Pox

    I don't really se how gravecrawler can be better than bloodghast. Neither blocks, and the 'crawler doesn't ever have haste and has arguably a worse recursion constraint. In any case, it's probably a...

    The critics are spot on, despite being, unfortunately, not new. I will try to address your points (and partially respond to what has been said thereafter).

    Re: [Primer/Deck] Pox

    This deserves a long answer, a premise, and an excursus on the general position of the deck in the metagame.

    Re: [Primer/Deck] Pox

    I think this deserves a big quote. It's a really important point: you are not abusing Loam, you are using it. The deck works perfectly fine without.

    Re: [Primer/Deck] Pox

    I perfectly agree, it's definitely not worth it. You could consider it as a sideboard option against control and graveyard-based combo decks, where you are usually boarding out most of the symmetric...

    I know it's a a bit outdated ad not a big tournament, but I did post a report some time ago here. Anyways, you already did a very good job, the only possible card of interest that I see missing is...
  13. Re: Playing a single deck or keeping up with tech?

    Let's try an overly simplificated approach, just because.

    From a very basic standpoint you can model the overall player+deck strength as S=maximum_deck_strength*personal_proficiency (the latter...

    I'm not particularly annoyed by the stickies, but I can see thread 3 to 7 being consolidated into something named like "Legacy Resources".

    Since Gravecrawler was recently spoiled, I began to think about a similar deck. Zombies are my pet tribe, and with the new printing they have at their disposal an impressive quantity of aggressive...

    The card shines, for example, against Maverick. Smallpoxing away a land + Noble can steal away a lot of tempo. It's also very good against decks like threshold that play few threats and have a hard...
