    Re: [Deck] Dreadstill - Enter the Fist

    I don't think Heavenly Whale is playable, because it's a 3/3. I think it falls into the category of Pteramander and Cryptic Serpent: close, but not reliable enough to make it long term in legacy....

    I edited quite a bit, didn't expect such a fast response!

    I get that. I included Ratchet Bomb in the board, it seems like the only truly feasible way to combat Silence. EDIT: I also meant a...

    Re: Ruby Storm

    I think the answer, in general, is to change Ruby Storm's focus. TES has become the de-facto storm deck to pilot, adopting new cards and a different strategy for disruption/protection. However, they...

    Re: Death-Nought

    Those are all fair points. I forget that the deck can just naturally spam 3 spells and get a Phoenix, with Entomb being one of the spells. The best part is that the deck can just do it's thing and be...

    Re: Death-Nought

    I think Gamble could be interesting, but I don't like Entomb over BA. If you're doing Entomb there is a better deck. The reason Phoenix is good is because you can BA and have 3 of them. Alone, a 3/2...

    Re: Death-Nought

    Love it, once I get the Phoenixs' I'll put it together. It's the only card I'm missing besides Sea/Badlands. I think I can work with shocks/basics for now.

    Wow, thanks for the article! I will use that as my starting point, it looks strong.

    Re: Death-Nought

    That is definitely another idea! So maybe this:

    4x delver of secrets
    4x Death's shadow
    4x arclight Phoenix
    4x dark ritual
    4x buried Alive
    3x thoughtseize
    3x cabal therapy
    4x daze

    I put a message up in the moderator forum about helping out with old primers. So far the best option mentioned is to just start a new thread. I can archive this old one for posterity.

    I've been jammin' this (goldfishing) lately and it has been doing well.

    Re: [Deck] Dreadstill - Enter the Fist

    A few observations I have made trying UB Dreadnought:

    1) I liked Dark Confidant over Standstill, which is much better against D&T and provides another threat/blocker.
    2) Brazen Borrower is a...

    A way to double up on creatures for only B? It isn't acceleration but it's essentially a 'free' creature that provides B to play Shadow/Imp and even pays 1B for Gurmag by itself, in...

    Isn't Balustrade Spy + Thassa's Oracle pretty good for this deck? I'm also curious if Bazaar Trademage could be a DR target that supercharges dredging and also feeds the Force of Will/Negation...

    Re: [SCD]Bazaar Trademage

    I don't think Bazaar Trademage can work in a 'fair'-ish agro deck. It might be ok in a toolbox deck (some spicy lists in here), could be great as a way to speed up the clock in a Stompy shell...

    I think the list is cool, something that could be a solid tier 2.5 agro deck at the LGS that could take advantage of a particular metagame. It has just enough spice to be interesting, but not so much...

    Good thoughts. I really like the toolbox nature of your BUG version, but I think Trademage is still a liability. I think I'm going to drop Trademage altogether and play Putrid Imp/Careful Study as my...

    It's my next test, the first one was bad. Trademage has to be the first discard outlet because I'm actually down 2 cards. The discards have to be high value creatures and I have to draw into a Hollow...

    I know, I know...again, the idea is to get Trademage + Hollow One + Vengevine. Fun is what I'm looking for, not necessarily the most competitive graveyard deck.

    So the fast aggro plan is, admittedly, worse than Hogaak. That leaves an alternative plan where 1) being 3 mana is a bonus rather than setback, like with a stompy setup with Chalice, or 2) a value...
