    Re: Core Set 2020 Spoilers

    More likely to see play as a totally uncastable -1 SB slot in decks that cant beat SnT.

    Re: Core Set 2020 Spoilers

    It's honestly not too hard to get 7 land names with Standstill by playing some snow basics, I can see it as a viable SB card. Playing it main seems ambitious as it screams Azcanta must be in your...

    Re: [Deck] Canadian Threshold (aka RUG Delver, Tempo Thresh)

    I'd be putting the Cindervines main over Cspell and Stifle #4. This deck's worst matchups [particularly mainboard] have always been Vial, Hymn/SCM/Kcomm/Strix, CB, Chalice, and ANT. Cindervines helps...

    Fetches make Ponder better as well. Even without cantrips Id still play them as they mill lands out of the deck; as an added bonus they function as pseudo-mana in the yard (thresh/delve-type...

    Re: Heliod Stasis

    At this point you would cut Stasis entirely and just be Standstill. There really isn't any reason to run Heliod in Standstill either. In the Still shell it's easier to run B2B in board given Teferi. ...

    Eh, the issue is that Mentor gets worse with each additional copy you run past ~2, and worse again for each other creature [not called Snapcaster] you topdeck. This anti-synergy is why Esper Mentor...

    Re: 8Force

    You could try the Verdict w/ 8x FoW effects vs DnT [go all-in on countering Vials], but it also means you kinda have to keep all 8x in post-board. This likely screws up sideboard mapping as you have...

    The play is: pick up a Standstill, play a threat, and redeploy Standstill without any chance of opponent interaction. The more useful aspect is the highly uninteractive manland attacks (PW-killing)....

    Re: 8Force

    -The reason Tundra competes in legacy is 3x SCM.
    -23 lands is 1-2x too many. (Mentor ~ 22 land, Myth ~ 21 land).
    -Myth Realized requires 3-4x slots, whereas Mentor requires 2x.

    Don't you worry, they'll probably print Master of Arms where activated ability prevents defender from dealing damage.
