    Re: [Deck] Astral Drift vs. Legacy take 1

    This is probably the best printing DGA has had in years.

    Canopy has always been a great card hamstrung by a few things:
    -Lack of GW decks
    -U+G/W decks having other draw engines available

    I also went 3-2 in the Sunday mcq

    Storm 2-0
    Humans 2–1
    UW blade 2–1
    Applejacks 1-2
    Lands 0-2

    The mox diamond decks were brutal in getting lock pieces out early.

    Re: Alternative selection

    Faithless Looting is an excellent card already. Its major issue is that there is no card that effectively mimics its effect besides Careful Study, and if you're using draw 2, discard 2 as selection...

    Jar is a busted card that probably doesn't need to be unbanned.

    But Griselbrand is just as busted in every way and should be banned if Jar is the standard.

    Played Esper last night:

    Wasteland was a huge factor in those middle games, even with Petal.

    tried the esper build (Straight lift from Jarvis's stream) and didn't do so hot. I think I went 2-3 and 1-3 drop. Storm is still a bye, def beat that in both leagues.
