    Re: [Deck] Dreadstill - Enter the Fist

    Re: [Deck] UW(x) Landstill

    @Puggl3 no updates at this time. The slots are still too tight to deal with Oko profitably. Right now the Wastelands aren't at their best, but you also can't cut really them b/c of Depths. It's...

    Re: Snow Dragon

    The deck lacks serious wincons, so already you kinda know you need to swap Oko to 3x and Teferi to 2x. The way these decks play out, they need more SCM in the maindeck (SB strategy is to side into a...

    Re: [Deck] Strawberry Shortcake

    Thereís a fairly large difference between 4 (Karn) and 6 mana, moreso if playing around Daze. Likely not worth cutting when your deck is able to do something with Coating in the event that Karn dies...

    Re: [Deck] Dreadstill - Enter the Fist

    Painter is a pretty favorable matchup for us, but game 1 it doesn't sound like variance could be overcome. For SB I would be bringing in RiP, and would consider Disenchant. Cuts would be -1 SCM, -1...

    Not enough players showed up today so just a pickup game vs Bomberman. Since it's only 1 match I'll reconstruct as best I remember:
    Game 1: opponent wins die roll

    Turn 0: land, Petal x2, Mox,...

    Re: Death-Nought

    I have found the optimal number of enablers to be 2:1. That tally of enablers can include recursive cards like JVP/SCM, though I only assign a value of 0.5 to each one.

    Yeah, this deck also has a pretty profound problem ever doing anything about an enemy Narset or Karn [which it runs]; Chalice x=0 also pretty disruptive. I would temper the "crazy good" with unable...

    It would be nice if they broke it down by ban era on mtgtop8 but looking at things by years:

    Wrenn is easier to beat [yard hate for example] than CB saying Decay or lose, while in the same meta Decay in deck = losing to Snap/Hymn. There is no creative space for fair decks to go that flying...

    You have successfully described why Wrenn was a bad ban. He chased Hymn and CB out of the format. He's gone, those two are coming back - there is nothing that can stop it. Just sit back and watch;...
