    Tower of the Magistrate.

    Like, not even a joke, I love that card.

    Re: [Deck] GW/x Maverick

    I am still confused by this reaction to Pile you guys are having. Most games are the exact game for me—they throw a bunch of removal, a threat eventually sticks, they die a few turns later. It’s like...

    I rarely if ever lose to either Czeck Pile or Esper/Bant Stoneblade decks. Jeskai Stoneblade has been the only one giving me troubles and only if they use the old lists from the Treasure Cruise era....

    My experience with this article over multiple formats have been more helpful than not. As an example, my current Maverick list runs 14 white sources, 14 green sources, and 10 black sources. This...

    On the question of "a 3rd black source" you need answer *why* you need the 3rd source?

    My current list runs 8 fetchlands, 1 Bayou, 1 Scrubland, 1 Birds of Paradise, 4 Deathrite Shaman; which means...

    Heck, even good keeps means you lose if you don't sequence properly. As is the fate of all non-Brainstorm decks. I got as far as the third turn before I turned off Ari's video. I didn't realize how...

    Re: [Deck] GW/x Maverick

    I agree with all of this--for the most part. I'm just saying that being Momless makes the matchup MUCH harder than you are making it out to be. But the concept is sound--if the main thing I can think...

    How do you pay for all this? 1-2 removal spells and you're either saccing lands to protect your dudes, in which case wastelands immediately lock out your black sources, or you don't protect your...

    90% of my hesitation comes from how fucked you'll be once you face an opposing Mom deck like the Mirror or D&T.

    For full context; I like Leo, I just want to be careful with splashes. We have LOTS of 3drops that do awesome things in a wide range of matchups. Arguing to add a color requires for us to cross out...

    Re: [Deck] GW/x Maverick

    That's the thing right? Turning off cantrips on turn 2 is super strong, turning off cantrips on 4-5 less so. Turning off cantrips is decent against some decks, while storm just says "whatever" and...

    But that's just what I mean. For 4 mana we can Green Sun for a way to turn off cantrips, or we could search for Knight and end the game. Sometimes Leo will be the better choice--but will it be often...

    Re: [Deck] GW/x Maverick

    With so many Zenith targets at the 3cc slot it feels difficult to justify adding a 4th color for a mere value card.

    Re: [Deck] GW/x Maverick

    It's been years since I played that version--but it's definitely a lot faster and a lot more brutish than Abzan Maverick. It's also where I started using Orim's Chant; fantastic card to use when you...
