    Re: [Primer] Nic Fit

    There was a guy at locals a couple of weeks ago playing a version of the deck with Urza's Bauble because it helps to peep your opponent's hand with therapy.
    It also has synergy with Glissa the...

    Re: Throne of Eldraine Spoilers

    Excalibur is probably meant to be the 4RR thing right

    I really like that DT/LL knight
    Might actually try a Haakon package in Grixis Phoenix for the Buried Alive synergy

    Re: Throne of Eldraine Spoilers

    Not being able to wish into ETW seems like an issue though right
    I think if you want to take advantage of this new ritual then the deck needs a pretty big overhaul

    Re: [Primer/Deck] Pox

    By the time you can expect to play a 4-mana enchantment in pox both players hands are probably near-empty, and if you're topdecking then this card doesn't really do anything, because any spell that...

    Yeah I don't think the enchantment is that great.
    It's like a weird combination of As Foretold and Wilderness Reclamation and I don't think it really offers anything that wouldn't be better suited...
  7. Re: [Deck] Canadian Threshold (aka RUG Delver, Tempo Thresh)

    Usually these are decks with 3 Wrenn and Fiery Islet so there is at least one spicy land maindeck, and just as a way to access wasteland it's not totally awful

    Re: UW Sagas

    I liked the look of the GW-wave deck in the youtube videos that were posted, that deck made very good use of Kruphix's Insight.
    That deck felt much more like a combo deck that was trying to ramp up...

    Re: Sleeves both inner and outer

    My 1 Foil deck is in KMC perfect hards and Dragon Shield matte outers, I think this is a good combo
    They keep the cards in a relatively un-bent state (much moreso than normal KMC perfect fits)...

    Re: [Primer/Deck] Pox

    The awkward thing then is that if everything works successfully, then when the Knight dies you can't actually re-use it because it tucks itself
    A bit of a catch-22

    Awkwardly if it gets discarded or countered it sits as a creature in the GY and disables Nether Spirit, which is something to consider.

    I thought that the deck needed the increased number of Invocation Enablers and in UW colours there really isn't anything better. I agree that it's on the low end of power level for cards that see...

    It's not only that there are fewer enablers but also that the enablers are worse.
    For example if you go Land Grant, Ritual, Buried Alive, and then later your opponent plays terminus or something (or...
