    Re: B.L.A.S.T. (GB Lantern)

    Regarding Dark Petition: it makes mid-late game Dark Rituals better while also being pretty good early if enabled with Rituals. I think it's the most feasible and will be my next test. Wishclaw was...

    Re: B.L.A.S.T. (GB Lantern)

    I have found that the Delver matchup is decent, but they can still just tempo us out of the game with a t1 Delver backed up by Daze/Force. It's one of the biggest reasons I ended up adding the 2nd...

    Re: B.L.A.S.T. (GB Lantern)

    Brutality is good, I definitely like the flexibility.

    The most important card in the deck is Bridge, so I need to find a way to either duplicate its effect or play a tutor that gets it. Talisman...

    Re: B.L.A.S.T. (GB Lantern)

    Yeah, that's the other option: ignore burn. I can see an argument for playing maindeck Collective Brutality instead of Duress, which has pretty good value against burn, especially if I can turn dead...

    Re: B.L.A.S.T. (GB Lantern)

    This is my theoretical Depths sideboard plan:

    4x Dark Depths
    4x Thespian's Stage
    3x Crop Rotation
    3x Vampire Hexmage
    1x Sejiri Steppe


    Maindeck would have this change:

    Re: B.L.A.S.T. (GB Lantern)

    I think with maindeck discard into surgical, plus Ashiok exiling graveyards, Storm isn't an atrocious matchup. We're likely still less than 50% against them pre-board, but post board we get Hymn to...

    Re: B.L.A.S.T. (GB Lantern)

    Lodestone is 5/3, and would be better against Storm and terrible against Burn. I think Orb is best. The idea behind Lodestone is that most people will board out creature removal. The real issue is...

    I would love suggestions for the Burn and Storm matchups. I have a couple ideas, but none seem fantastic. Do I just let the matchup go or do I try and maneuver into 2-3 slots to address them?

    Re: B.L.A.S.T. (GB Lantern)

    Agreed. Blossom was, originally, a metagame call to fight the blue-stew dominated scene. It's still very good, in the right matchups.

    EDIT: Updated OP list, thinking about Dark Confidant sideboard...

    Re: B.L.A.S.T. (GB Lantern)

    I think it will end up duress main, Veil side. My local is fairly blue-light.

    I have officially switched to Surgical main, Blossom side. Too many games where it showed up too late to matter. It's...

    I would also look at Scrying Sheets and Dark Depths as strategies of you want to go the snow route. Scrying Sheets can help you find the snow man-lands and potentially other tech. Dark Depths is...

    Re: B.L.A.S.T. (GB Lantern)

    Orb testing was a bust, it could be a sideboard option but I think Choke is better. Opal re-test was similarly dissapointing, back to Dark Ritual.

    I nabbed a couple Veil of Summer, debating...

    Re: [Deck] Dreadstill - Enter the Fist

    Yeah, that all makes sense. In UB Shadow there are other 1-drop options (Gurmag, Reanimate>Street Wraith) that can pressure opponents. Gurmags don't land on turn 1, but playing a turn 1 Thoughtseize...

    Re: [Deck] Dreadstill - Enter the Fist

    I've always had a hard time flipping Delver in Dreadstill. I'm toying with the idea of playing a full set of Brazen Borrower in UB Shadow over Delvers, just to see if the value/utility can lead to a...

    Re: Jumpstart Spoilers (Insert Witticism Here)

    Did we hit any playable cards for Legacy in here? It seems really fun as a limited format but underwhelming as far as getting any traction in Legacy.

    Also considering Scroll of Fate + Phyrexian dreadnought in sideboard.

    Re: [Deck] Dreadstill - Enter the Fist

    FYI, this doesn't work, instants only for Scepter imprints.

    In order for See the Truth to be viable as a draw engine it needs to have more value than the Standstill sub-game. The deck-building...

    Re: Jumpstart Spoilers (Insert Witticism Here)

    Maverick and Nic-Fit both will want this as a singleton at least. Ensuring your GSZ's aren't countered will be pretty huge. The closest simulation of this we have is Vexing Shusher, which is much...

    Re: [Primer/Deck] Pox

    I don't think this cuts it. The card draw is conditional and the activated ability is too expensive. For six mana you get Sorin Markov.

    I like Oko, a lot actually. The combo of Bridge + Oko is known technology from modern. It pushes me closer to Mox Opal, for obvious reasons, but that is perfectly fine. I would probably just put in a...
