    Re: [Primer] UB Death's Shadow

    On a semi-related note, discussing good cards against the blue control/midrange decks, brings me back around to a pet card: Bitterblossom. I always liked the way it really pressured the slower blue...

    Re: [Primer] UB Death's Shadow

    I tried it for a little while, back before covid derailed my local legacy scene. It was certainly fun, but as Fox eludes, it's hard to get everything in there. I ended up trying several different...

    Re: [Primer] +Manaless Dredge+

    If I were to go into a legacy tournament tomorrow, this is definitely the deck I would bring. I think there is a strong argument for Creeping Chill + Hogaak beats as a focus, simply because Stifle...

    Came across this thread, I think it's the old Grixis Control thread proper:

  5. Re: Let's Draft the Timespiral Again! Timespiral remastered

    Some of these cards are incredible as old-art bordered. I am definitely picking up a couple Yawgmoths and I would love to get a set of Thoughtseize/Vampire Hexmage for Turbo Depths. I like this so...

    Trophy hits lands, but doesn't actually deal with Marit Lage. While I agree it's a fine instant-speed answer to Stage activations, it still doesn't play around Crop Rotation. Yes, Trophy is a super...

    Check out ELD's Time Vault games on YouTube, there are a handful of matches where Rood is playing his signature Ur Dreadstill list. Pretty good insight on how to play the deck, Rodney has been...

    Re: [Primer] Nic Fit

    Is there a way to deal with Marit Lage outside of white? I know Diabolic Edict has been used in the past, but their board needs to be all-clear for Edict to actually nab the 20/20, and coming from a...

    Re: [Deck] Hypergenesis

    If going for the more threat density/diversity route with Hypergenesis, I always liked having maindeck Ashen Rider, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur,Iona, Shield of Emeria, and Omniscience. They get your...

    Re: [Deck] Hypergenesis

    This was a pet deck of mine for ages, and I didn't even play Show and Tell due to cost. I don't have Emrakuls or Griselbrands anymore, but those aren't hard to acquire. Without Brainstorm this can...
  11. Re: Strixhaven (Back to School[s of Magic] this April)

    Bingo, this is what I was thinking. Delver archetypes in general need some form of card advantage, at least out of the sideboard, to help offset the fundamental weakness of their archetype (as Fox...
  12. Re: Strixhaven (Back to School[s of Magic] this April)

    To be fair, there is a higher deckbuilding cost to Collective Brutality compared to the new golgari charm. One requires BG, the other needs spare cards to pitch to gain the same modality. One is a...

    Re: Strixhaven - The Old Coatl control

    That's fair, I was just thinking that some decks can fight through Grixis fairly well like Goblins overloading and Elves combo-ing out early. I think both of those decks stand to gain quite a bit in...

    Re: [Primer] UB Death's Shadow

    Spell Pierce is probably fine for now. Being a Thoughtseize + Force of Will deck does a lot against combo, and without worrying about Oko in the format you don't have to have the extra Forces to stay...

    Re: Strixhaven - The Old Coatl control

    I could definitely see an argument for playing maindeck Brazen Borrower in place of Gurmag Angler. It's a tempo boost with card advantage, a threat, and feeds into Thoughtseize/Hymn, which is already...

    Re: [Primer] UB Death's Shadow

    So I'm not sold on the Price of Progress right now. I think the maindeck bolts and sideboard Pyroblasts are enough reason to splash red. One way to avoid the anti-synergy of PoP with Wasteland is to...

    Yeah, I'm hesitant on playing too many sacrifice outlets but 2x Village Rites is probably good. I really like what Yawgmoth can do to the board as a sacrifice outlet, rather than just attacking...

    I don't think Drainpipe Vermin is quite good enough to be playable, but I totally forgot about Village Rites. If there was ever a deck that could take advantage of Village Rites, it's Nic Fit.
