    I had you playing the exact same line, but I had myself at 3 life facing two 1/1s (with 1 Shoal left in GY). Your math checks out. I must have forgotten the FoW life or miscounted the damage from the...

    Ratchet Bomb would have done the same, and also killed Griffin and Chronomaton and 1/1 tokens...basically everything he couldn't beat.

    However I forgot he doesn't have the mana for it. He could...

    More importantly, he has to sacrifice a land too, which prevents him from casting either Rackling or Chalice @ 2 no matter what he discards. Then you would win.

    He can force a draw by playing 0...

    His library will be in the most favorable order, because it's not random. He chooses the order from Hideaway (which resolves after the Ulamog reshuffle).

    Re-read the line you quoted. Sphere's there. I can cast it on a turn I attack instead of pump, so it doesn't cost me a turn of clock.

    Re: 4 Card Blind

    Ah right, you can beat my line.

    But dropping your hand costs 5 mana. Suspend = 1. Electrodominance = 3 (RR+1). Balance = 1 (0 +1). Sphere adds +2 basically.

    If I lead with double Chrono, then yes I can't race Balance if you don't Suspend Gargadon first.

    Instead I play just 1 Chrono at first (and Sphere) and beatdown as a 2/2 or 3/3. If you Balance it...

    Why 2 Wasteland?

    Usually the correct number is 0 or 4, sometimes 3. A deck either wants mana denial or wants mana/gas. As a grindy control deck with that many 3s and 4s and Snapcaster, this looks...
