    Re: [DTB] U/R Delver

    Unfortunately the biggest drawback is consuming a lot of mana. Sea Gate Stormcaller contends with the 3-4 CMC slots, not the 2 CMC slot. You need to cast another spell that turn, so it's not really a...

    Re: [DTB] UWx Miracle Control

    Good point. Even if it works, other versions of UWx control are already tier 1 so it would take substantial results to justify the combo. I'll keep the discussion to the N&D section then.

    How does the Land Tax deck do?

    Yeah, Force of Vigor and Decay are both big risks. My testing so far has been against RUG Delver, Snowko, UR Delver, Burn, Vial aggro (D&T and Goblins), and some...

    Anyone here looking at RipHelm?

    I think it looks promising in this meta for a number of reasons:
    -Maindeck RiP is good vs metagame of many graveyard decks (Hogaak, Oops, Reanimator, Lands) and GY...

    Re: Eight Crab - The new Mill.

    I tried playing this and just went 0-5 against UR Delver. I got them down to 5 cards once, but usually lost with them at about 20 left.

    I even had explosive turns. Once I resolved double Archive...

    Re: Curse Stompy (Demon Stompy Reborn)

    The 2/2 split seems worth testing.

    How stable is your manabase now with Pelakka? Can you consistently hit 1BB early, or is that cost still a liability? (If I remember correctly, I think that's why...

    Re: Curse Stompy (Demon Stompy Reborn)

    Good point. Apparition is seeing a lot of play, in place of other removal, which makes them weak to 5cmc enchantments. And no one is going to metagame their deck just to beat you (at the expense of...

    How does your deck fare against Elves and D&T? There was a strong presence of both in the latest big online event, less blue. Are you running more than 1 SB Dystopia right now? Plague Engineer?

    Interesting.

    I'm a big fan of Mission Briefing for its interactions with Archive Trap, Force of Will and Daze, as well as just recurring cantrips.

    In Round 1 something like Knight-Mental Misstep-Sunlance/2nd Knight would have scored more than Knight-Force. I think Mental Misstep was better than Force, but your deck made Force look extra good...

    I like this direction best but it does not seem to be what others want.

    What am I missing here?
    OTP Porcelain Legionnaire should win through Sanitarium Skeleton because it takes him 2 turns to recast it (2BB) so you should get damage through in between right?
