    Re: [Deck] TinFins 3: Return of the Onion Burst

    I've been a bit out of the loop and didn't even know Arclight Phoenix was a card until today. Apparently it's the hotness in Modern and people are brewing with it in Legacy. I tried my hand at...

    Re: [Deck] TinFins 3: Return of the Onion Burst

    I havenít played ice station (or magic at all, really) recently, but assassinís trophy is an important printing for the deck since that primer was written. Because of its versatility I think itís far...

    Re: [Deck] TinFins 3: Return of the Onion Burst

    Donít miss the labman strategically. Burning wish for tendrils is very reliable and the only wincon you need once you stick a griselbrand.

    I do miss winning by drawing the whole deck with a...

    Re: [Deck] TinFins 3: Return of the Onion Burst

    I've played Burning Wish Fins a lot in the past until I settled on Ice Station Zebra, and always loved the idea of Gamble. I've played as many as four and they are just seldom as good as I want them...

    Re: [Deck] TinFins 3: Return of the Onion Burst

    I have a By Force in the sideboard to Wish for in addition to the option to board in Grudge. If I could only choose one Iíd probably keep the By Force but there is enough space for both.

    Re: [Deck] TinFins 3: Return of the Onion Burst

    After going 4-1, 3-2, 2-3 online with Ice Station Zebra post-DRS-ban, I decided to make the switch to Burning Fins since I think it is currently better-positioned. With DnT on the rise, and no more...

    Emrakul does NOT work with LED + Shallow Grave or Corpse Dance. Put Shallow Grave on stack, discard hand to LED, Emrakul shuffles gy back into library, Shallow Grave resolves returning nothing.

    Is the decklist itself hard to read? I have it in list form at the top of section 1, then paragraph form only for the potential changes to the deck.

    I like Ice Station Zebra. Iíll change it now...

    I actually have a full primer written up on Living Fins. Itís still a work in progress but itís almost done.

    In section 2 I lay out most of the possible sideboard choices, along with my current...

    For your deck we have discussed these two configurations:

    4 cabal therapy
    2 collective brutality
    2 unmask
    2 probe

    And

    Re: [Deck] TinFins 3: Return of the Onion Burst

    Exhume lists typically run LED. Most seem to be running 3 which I view as a mistake. Card is busted. It also happens to solve the IMS problem nicely.

    I think if youíre not running LED then goryos...

    Re: [Deck] TinFins 3: Return of the Onion Burst

    If you are playing the reactive SB in Burning Fins (and therefore have more space for Wish targets) I would recommend a Reanimate (in addition to Exhume, which is usually better) and a Collective...

    I like this list the most of all that youíve posted. I think maxing on non-sb exhumes is important. You want to be as combo-dense as possible. Land base seems strange to me but it might be important...

    Yeah there is no way around the bug on modo. Apparently itís last card drawn on top. Since you can undo an led activation I usually just test it out first to make sure the correct card is on top. If...

    Re: [Deck] Reanimator Depths

    Silent gravestone is great. It stops DRS, Surgical and snapcaster, and yes itís a house against reanimator.

    One thing I noticed is the first time you drew with Griselbrand you just drew 14 right away. Always draw 7 at a time. When you draw an LED (especially with 14 more cards to come) abandoning those 7...

    Great stuff! Interesting that 6/8 games were Marit Lage. In my experience about 2/3 of games are griselbrand based (maybe 80-85% of those ending in labman). In fact, I was considering testing going...

    Not having access to 1 unburial rites in a deck with 4 LED and 4 Griselbrand is crazy.

    LED + entomb + griselbrand is a common holding. Turning entomb into reanimation in that spot is crucial. I...
