    Re: GB Vengevine

    Sure thing, just didn't think the loss of looting was worth it. I get where you're coming from. I think you want 4 OUAT in your list, 12 lands without Looting is scary low.

    Re: GB Vengevine

    The issue is you don't have strong ways of getting Bridge into your yard. Hogaak enables it with Altar of Dementia and milling a minimum of 4 cards with Supplier and Vengevine, 8 for a single Hogaak....

    RANCOR!!! I think you're right, it feels like a 2-of.

    Re: Eight Crab - The new Mill.

    I feel like there is a SpongeBob pun somewhere in the works to name this deck...Krabby Patty? Mr. Krabs? Krusty Krab?

    Re: GB Vengevine

    In sideboard matchups where *not dying* against combo is your primary plan, I think Stain the Mind shines. I don't think I would play Thoughtseize instead of Stain the Mind maindeck, though. If...

    Sticky: Poll: Re: All B/R update speculation.

    I trimmed a little, but I really agree with this post. I've enjoyed legacy at each stage since I started playing, which was right before Survival was banned. I'm ok with legacy becoming vintage 2.0,...

    Meh, I was just throwing shit against a wall. I think the most recent list developed is by far the best.

    Sticky: Poll: Re: All B/R update speculation.

    That's my argument. I am saying we aren't just getting Fatal Push that replaces Ghastly Demise, we are getting Oko that replaces Jace, *and* True Name Nemesis. We're getting Uro that replaces...

    Re: GB Vengevine

    That's really not that far away from Sultai Hogaak…the difference is Cavern really, which makes your mana slightly worse. Other than that I think you're closer to standard than you think.

    Here's...

    Sticky: Poll: Re: All B/R update speculation.

    I tentatively agree; I'm not sure Oko needs a ban, but of all the 'offenders', it seems the easiest for WOTC to justify based on it's being banned in other formats.

    I'm arguing that new powerful...

    Sticky: Poll: Re: All B/R update speculation.

    I didn't write degenerate at all, look at the Zoo vs. Delver comparison. What I'm saying is that the format is narrowing, ie the more powerful the cards are that get printed the more cards get pushed...

    Re: GB Vengevine

    I would love to have another 1-mana black/green/red discard outlet like Putrid Imp, because that would mean I could cut Tribe and play jund colors. Until then, rainbows it is. I always have the idea...

    We've been aware of Legacy's slow journey towards the same place as Vintage for years: you play broken shit, usually a combo, alongside the best possible cards in the format. I don't mean to...

    Sticky: Poll: Re: All B/R update speculation.

    Meh, I don't think so. I highly doubt any of those get a ban other than maybe Oko due to it being banned in several other formats. The others are good, but not too good. I don't see Astrolabe getting...
  15. Re: Zendikar Resurgent spoilers: Eldrazi Need Not Apply

    I see no reason to stay strictly mono-red, Boros Charm is that format's Price of Progress and Lightning Helix goes in/out of favor. Deflecting Palm and the R/W canopy land are also good reasons to...

    Now I'm derailing, but whatever: is it fast enough that I could play Steam Vents over Volcanics?
  17. Re: Zendikar Resurgent spoilers: Eldrazi Need Not Apply

    I ordered a set to play 8-Lynx in Modern. I think it's going to make Zoo a tier 2 deck again. Modern generally has a pretty broken metagame, but the more degenerate it gets the less focused it is on...

    Re: GB Vengevine

    I am really optimistic as well, Vengevine is definitely a legacy power-level card and there have been some great cards to support it over the past few years (Amalgam, Hollow One, Once Upon a Time.)

    Has anyone compiled a list of playables from the set yet? This is my short list:

    Archon of Emeria
    Confounding Conundrum
    Seagate Stormcaller
    Nighthawk Scavenger
    Scourge of the Skyclaves...

    Re: [Deck] The Gate

    I liken this deck to mono-black 'Jund', everything is either efficient disruption (Thoughtseize, Push), dangerous threats (Regisaur, Nighthawk Scavenger) or card advantage (Confidant, Hymn, Jitte,...

    Well then that's decided for me, it's 2x Stain the Mind. I want the 13th land. Mulligans are, to put it lightly, very hard to recover from. OUaT/Looting help out tremendously but if I have the...

    You're on 12 lands as well, making the 4th Looting pretty important. I'm not disagreeing with you on Troll, far from it. I think when it's good it's *really good* and when it's bad it's still...

    Re: GB Vengevine

    I am not convinced that 4x Faithless Looting is correct. I think it really shines on turns 3+, and I don't want to ever draw more than one. I really like 3x Faithless Looting, so that opens up a slot...

    I ended up taking out 4x Faithless Looting for 2x Gamble, 1x Shared Discovery, 1x Stain the Mind. In the testing I evaluated when I drew either Discovery/Stain which one would be better in the given...

    Re: GB Vengevine

    I didn't like being 1-2 damage short in some races, especially against Depths. Karakas and maybe Edicts in the board might solve that.

    Curious about flamewake Phoenix, have you tried it?
