    Re: [Deck] Strawberry Shortcake

    @drude1: With 4 Karn, a land you might sacrifice, and that extra mana to play and to activate Engineer, I am certain that you need a 20th land.

    Re: [Deck] Strawberry Shortcake

    That's the primary use that I foresee for it, which is one that I'm definitely happy with. I have many times topdecked a late game Recruiter and wished it could get a Copter! But that use really only...

    Engineer seems to leave a very positive impression on everyone who has played him (I haven't had a chance to do so yet). What do you generally Entomb with him? I'm concerned about his tutor target...

    Fantastic! Thank you!

    Regarding the new list:
    I'm surprised to see you back on 19 land. Were there problems with 20?
    Is trimming Canonist really wise given the resurgence of Xerox decks? Would...

    Re: [Deck] Strawberry Shortcake

    I'm honestly a little surprised to hear high praise about Goblin Engineer. I figured he'd be too clunky and too risky. I was planning on testing 1 (fit nicely into my flex slot!). Now I have to find...

    Re: [Deck] Strawberry Shortcake

    That's a good point. Storm can be SO FAST :'(

    I'm worried I'll miss Pyroclasm if I switch to Bolt. Are you not worried about the volume of creatures from Elves, Goblins, Young Peezy, Empty the...

    Re: [Deck] Strawberry Shortcake

    I thought you leave the 3rd Canonist in the SB against storm, because you have Karn to shut off their Petals and buy you time. Whereas vs Elves and other combo decks without artifact mana, Karn...

    Some of us were playing Hanna's Custody in the SB for a while. Sounds like it would be pretty good in your metagame.

    Re: [Deck] Strawberry Shortcake

    My primary reasoning was speed. However, you're correct that they're both super situational. But one situation is "Win the game" and the other is "maybe blow up some lands."

    This makes a lot of...

    So do you still prefer the 19 land, 5 fast mana, 3 Karn, 3 Copter arrangement?

    All sounds good, but where do we fit it? That's what everyone is grappling with. I think everyone is going to be left with their own personal theories on Goblin Engineer: there will be no definitive...

    Re: [Deck] Strawberry Shortcake

    I'm not saying he's bad. Quite the opposite. I'm just saying he's not the complete solution. We can't DEPEND on him. We need backups/alternatives for a variety of reasons.

    Re: [Deck] Strawberry Shortcake

    Karn has a big target on his head. If I can't defend him, he becomes an enormous tempo drain (meaning the rest of the game plan is durdling in the meantime) just to kill one Chalice. And defending...

    Re: [Deck] Strawberry Shortcake

    This weekend I finally got some thorough reps in. My primary conclusions were:

    Karn is fantastic, but slow
    20 lands is nice, but it doesn't make us faster
    5 fast mana (excluding LED) is not...

    Re: [Deck] Strawberry Shortcake

    I finally got in some good reps with Karn last night. He's insanely good. I'm very happy with 4 Karn and 20 land.
    However, I was able to acquire a cheap LED last night! What do I cut to fit it in?...

    Re: [Deck] Strawberry Shortcake

    I'm glad to see that the consensus is pro-Blood Moon. My issue is: 1 or 2 Blood Moon effects in the 75?

    The arrangement for 2 that I liked the most was 1 Blood Moon maindeck and 1 Magus of the...

    Re: [Deck] Strawberry Shortcake

    I generally agree. My primary reason for suggesting possible cutting of 1 Recruiter is strictly for space reasons.

    Do you think Engineer completely replaces Welder? 0 Welder once Engineer is legal?

    Re: [Deck] Strawberry Shortcake

    I think we cannot get rid of Recruiter. It adds too much consistency. However, I think 3 Recruiter, 3 Engineer, and 2 Welder is a real possibility. I'm not sure I could ever see us playing less than...

    Mine looks almost identical to Seth's:

    Maindeck (58 cards):
    4 Imperial Recruiters
    4 Painters Servant
    3 Goblin Welder
    2 Ethersworn Canonist
    1 Goblin Cratermaker

    Anyone have any opinions on 19 land vs 20 land, 1 SSG vs 2 SSG, 3 Karn vs 4 Karn? I've got some flex slots (no LED, :cry:) and I'm trying to figure out how to use them.

    Re: [Deck] Strawberry Shortcake

    @Megadeus:
    I think that's a common concern. I'm on 5x one-shot mana sources and Karn has come down reliably. On the other hand, I'm still on 4x Copter, so I can prep for him more reliably.
