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

    Winter Orb is going to be a house in the post-ban metagame.
  2. Re: [Deck] Canadian Threshold (aka RUG Delver, Tempo Thresh)

    I've been playing a bit of Canadian Threshold on MODO of late...

    About 2 weeks before Top was banned, I saw the light and realized that Winter Orb was The Truth against Miracles. A traditional...
  3. Re: [DTB] Canadian Threshold (aka RUG Delver, Tempo Thresh)

    @Sloshthedark-
    Builds like this were popular for a while after Treasure Cruise was released but before it was banned. I experimented with 4 Delver/3 Goyf/3 YP/4 Treasure Cruise builds a few times,...
  4. Re: [DTB] Canadian Threshold (aka RUG Delver, Tempo Thresh)

    @H, Well I would consider Elves to be a positive match up (more so than Omni-Tell)for any RUG build that doesn't have any dead cards post board. That would probably be a build featuring 6 burns...
  5. Re: [DTB] Canadian Threshold (aka RUG Delver, Tempo Thresh)

    @H
    I think they key to beating Omni-Tell or any other combo deck (or any deck in general) is not having dead cards against them. Post board against Omni-Tell, I don't want more than 10 creatures...
  6. Re: [DTB] Canadian Threshold (aka RUG Delver, Tempo Thresh)

    @bac5665
    A big part is that RUG is a lot harder to play than it might look and it is extremely unforgiving to mistakes. Also Deathrite Shaman is a thing against us.
    I do think the virtual card...
  7. Re: [DTB] Canadian Threshold (aka RUG Delver, Tempo Thresh)

    @bac5665
    RUG Delver is an extremely skill dependent deck, but that most match ups are winnable if you know the match up better than your opponent. RUG is an ideal deck in metagames where Nimble...
  8. Re: [DTB] Canadian Threshold (aka RUG Delver, Tempo Thresh)

    @Vandalize,
    -I didn't notice your post before, but where I ended up on the 3 Goyf 3 Probe 3 Stifle build was with the 4th Goyf in the SB. Obviously your results will very by meta, but I think Goyf...
  9. Re: [DTB] Canadian Threshold (aka RUG Delver, Tempo Thresh)

    I decided to further test Fire/Ice, I ran this build through 2 dailies:

    4 Misty Rainforest
    4 Scalding Tarn
    3 Tropical Island
    3 Volcanic Island
    4 Wasteland

    4 Delver of Secrets
    4 Nimble...
  10. Re: [DTB] Canadian Threshold (aka RUG Delver, Tempo Thresh)

    Unless you are in meta where you know everyone and what they usually play, you would have to be a crazy person to not run Gitaxian Probe. The card is like a Force of Will that doesn't have any card...
  11. Re: [Deck] Canadian Threshold (aka RUG Delver, Tempo Thresh)

    On the suggestion of SB Clique, I think probably an equally good or better configuration would be -1 Flusterstorm, -1 Sulfuric Vortex, +1 Sulfur Elemental, +1 Vendilion Clique. You can bring the...
  12. Re: [Deck] Canadian Threshold (aka RUG Delver, Tempo Thresh)

    I see there are some other people in this thread trying to grind on Canadian Threshold on Magic Online. I just thought I would put together a little breakdown for where I am at for the current MODO...
  13. Re: [Deck] Canadian Threshold (aka RUG Delver, Tempo Thresh)

    I've gotten to test Kird Ape in two daily's so far. The first one I ran Daryl Ayer's actual list and went 1-2 drop, the second I played an 18 land version (-1 forked bolt, +1 Wooded Foothills) to a...
  14. Re: [Deck] Canadian Threshold (aka RUG Delver, Tempo Thresh)

    @Sawatrix-
    I would invite you to consider this article by Gerry Thompson http://www.starcitygames.com/article/29040_When-Did-Card-Advantage-Stop-Mattering.html

    Basically he makes the point that...
  15. Re: [Deck] Canadian Threshold (aka RUG Delver, Tempo Thresh)

    I would argue that Nimble Mongoose is better positioned in the metagame than it was pre-Treasure Cruise. Granted I primarily play online and so my observations come from dealing with the online...
  16. Re: [Deck] Canadian Threshold (aka RUG Delver, Tempo Thresh)

    Casting Delver of Secrets in the blind is a pretty darn good play. But turn 1 Wasteland, Turn 2 kill Delver is an effective play also. If the opponent Wastelands me, there is only a 45% chance I draw...
  17. Re: [Deck] Canadian Threshold (aka RUG Delver, Tempo Thresh)

    If you are on the play against a completely unknown opponent, definitely play Delver first. But if you have knowledge your opponent is running Wasteland and 1cc removal, hedge your bet and play...
  18. Re: [Deck] Canadian Threshold (aka RUG Delver, Tempo Thresh)

    @Manipulato- Nimble Mongoose is a brick house against U/R Delver and Urw Stoneblade, they can't answer a 3/3 shroud and it is therefore an excellent source of virtual card advantage, I wouldn't...
  19. Re: [Deck] Canadian Threshold (aka RUG Delver, Tempo Thresh)

    I 4-0ed a daily yesterday with this build:

    4 Wasteland
    4 Misty Rainforest
    4 Scalding Tarn
    3 Tropical Island
    3 Volcanic Island

    4 Delver of Secrets
    4 Nimble Mongoose
  20. Re: [Deck] Canadian Threshold (aka RUG Delver, Tempo Thresh)

    So @ SCG Worcester, I ran the 3 Stifle, 3 Spell Pierce, 2 Forked Bolt and 2 Gitaxian Probe list, and this is the sideboard I figured out:

    3 Pyroblast
    2 Hydroblast
    2 Submerge
    2 Vendilion Clique...
  21. Re: [DTB] Canadian Threshold (aka RUG Delver, Tempo Thresh)

    I got a chance to play in some daily's over the weekend on MODO. In my first tournament, I went with a sdematt inspired list, replacing Nimble Mongoose with Hooting Mandrills, but running Probes over...
  22. Re: [DTB] Canadian Threshold (aka RUG Delver, Tempo Thresh)

    I haven't had a chance to test Treasure Cruise but I am inclined to agree with Contract Killer. If you want to play RUG and you want to play Stifles, you definitely want to play Nimble Mongoose. You...
  23. Re: [DTB] Canadian Threshold (aka RUG Delver, Tempo Thresh)

    You definitely want to leave in the Probes in against decks with blue, where it tells what kind of countermagic they have and what the follow up to Deathrite Shaman will be, that's usually where they...
  24. Re: [DTB] Canadian Threshold (aka RUG Delver, Tempo Thresh)

    Yeah I am just trying to discuss how I might want to tweak my build given that Burn is going to be more of a mainstay in the meta. No one's suggesting running any narrow SB cards or the MD. Thanks...
  25. Re: [DTB] Canadian Threshold (aka RUG Delver, Tempo Thresh)

    Well folks, it seems that Burn is now an actual contender thanks to Eidolon of the Great Revel and burn players tightening up their lists (they run Searing Blaze now, making it harder to just ride...
