    Re: No more Legacy on the SCG Tour

    It would be financially beneficial for WOTC as long as the revenue from new ex-RL products outweighs any community backlash (legal or otherwise)


    It would also make a ton of people (i.e. 99% of...

    Re: [Deck] W/x Parfait (Tax/Rack Control)

    In my experience testing a non-parfait enchantments deck this seems accurate
    Playing so many cards that are minus-1 on resolution (tutor) is a risky proposition and I imagine it's very hard to dig...

    Re: [Deck] W/x Parfait (Tax/Rack Control)

    Without any Dreadnought/Morph synergy Scroll of Fate doesn't seem very good.
    If you draw a situational card the plan is to use the Rack/Tax engine to shuffle it away. If you want to play a 3 mana...

    Re: No more Legacy on the SCG Tour

    I'm addressing the argument that wotc won't ever bother print RL cards because it would be some kind of logistical hassle that detracts from their core business of making standard-legal sets.

    Re: Contaminated Stockpile

    The Nether Spirit idea is interesting
    Perhaps you could cut the additional bloodghasts for some Entomb then, which is ok with Therapy as well, and then you could even play Sevinne's Reclamation (not...

    Re: [Primer] UB Death's Shadow

    - I'm not suggesting playing Delver and Hymn together
    - Hymn hitting lands is also fine because it keeps your Dazes/Waste/TS live and makes it harder for your opponent to find the mana to cast shit...

    Re: [Primer] UB Death's Shadow

    This is it honestly, I don't think it's correct to play this card when wren/bolt deck is the #1 deck in the format.
    I think JVP is probably too vulnerable and that doesn't even die to Wrenn

    Re: [Primer] UB Death's Shadow

    Re: [Primer] UB Death's Shadow

    I have played some more with the JVP version with Gargoyle in the 'Angler' slot, and Gargoyle has been performing pretty well.

    The above attitude only makes sense when operating under the following paradigm:

    I think there's a pretty good chance it's real,
    There are so many new and high-quality artworks included in the leaked photos, this would be a lot of effort for somebody to go through just for a hoax

    Re: Death-Nought

    I think in 2019 legacy unless you're doing something 'extra' (e.g. Scroll of Fate) then Stifle-Nought as the threat package for a tempo deck is just too much clunk.
