    Re: Song of Creation Storm

    Good point, having a line to dodge everything but FoW is big, and having another line to dodge all GY hate helps too.

    Thanks for sharing your build. Interesting brew. Too bad the challenge didn't...

    When you untap after turn 1 Volcanic, any of these topdecked cards are live: Brainstorm, Ponder, Gamble, Looting, Wish (with a 2nd mana source). Basically anything you could...

    Re: Song of Creation Storm

    Moon Stompy with early resistors into Karn sounds just about unbeatable. I think we just have to accept those losses.

    Beating T1 Delver with FoW + Daze + Wasteland is a lot easier for builds like...

    Interesting deck build! I loved Rector-Bargain and was hoping there would be a reason to play Rector again some day.

    Ok, I see what you're trying to accomplish and why you have Monolith and Looting. Your ability to switch gears with the same set of cards is useful, instead of having to rely on drawing into the...

    That's also a strong line. It does make 1RUGG much easier.

    Yeah, I tend to emphasize other lines that leave red options open if I need them. Because I play red-heavy, the colorless tools are...

    Yeah I agree. I'm thinking of adding back Veil.

    So far the plan was to overload their disruption with multiple engines: Song, Echo, Wish, maindeck Empty. Gamble to find more gas. I'm fine losing...

    Re: Song of Creation Storm

    I don't see Telemin Performance helping. The games we struggle aren't the ones where we can resolve Wish with 5 mana, and SB space is tight.

    Faster combo isn't really an issue. This deck can...

    You don't have to play Song.

    But it's not an either-or thing. Both work together. Song and EoE, not instead of. 7+ functional copies of Echo make it even easier to cast Song. The decks aren't...

    Illusions of Grandeur might work in some janky UB Stompy deck. 2-card combo to end the game. On its own Illusions can buy you time. Or you can Donate it or pitch it to Force of Will or Chrome Mox.

    Re: RUG Storm

    Song of Creation is very strong and fits into your shell easily.

    Grim Monolith seems like the weakest slot, especially when ramping into 1RUG(G), so I would try
    -4 Grim
    +4 Song

    I'm happy with our current setup. Adding Peasant partway through after the broken Pauper stuff is gone should be interesting. It also looks like we can go pretty deep with this Pauper pool.

    That was my feel for the engine too once I started brewing with it. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with. You have a good knack for combo brews.

    You have this as LL, but Wrath has it as DD. One of you must do better than you think.
