    The point being, though, that it deactivates your opponent's lands, hence it being a hard lock that prevents your opponents from casting more spells assuming they don't already have mana open and an...

    This is mostly a crosspost from the Discord server, with a few additional thoughts in response to things that have been said on the thread in the last few days.

    Re: [Deck] Strawberry Shortcake

    Great run and nice report, Michael! Unlucky to miss out on Top 8 in the last couple of rounds, but definitely confirms that the deck has legs in the hands of a seasoned painter.

    Interesting to...

    Youíre right, my bad. Will edit my post to reflect thatóIíve been playing with Spyglass too much.

    Re: [Deck] Strawberry Shortcake

    List looks good, I think moving to 3 Canonists to fit in a Cratermaker together with EE makes sense. I've been trying to find space for a Revoker maindeck, having tested it in the side and found...

    Re: Unplayable Chunderbucket Pile (but with chalice)

    Hm, I take your point regarding jamming a disruptive card on turn 1, although I guess my point is that I'm not sure Thorn is really a lock piece as such. But if it *is* doing the job you want it to I...

    I've been going back and forth on Search for Azcanta in my chalice builds. I do like it, and it's certainly good against Grixis and Miracles, but it's also quite slow. I've been liking Flusterstorm...

    +1 for unplayable chunderbucket piles with chalice

    I feel like Thorn is a bit underwhelming here and Trinisphere might serve you better. I would also consider running Chrome Mox over Mox Diamond,...

    I mean, Bridge isn't terrible even with Copters if you are patient and careful about not playing extra lands. Also, not playing bridges until you're sure you want them, and so on. The other option is...

    If you're running Ensnaring Bridge and intending to run multiples, which I agree is good in this meta, I prefer a build with Chandra rather than Karn + Copters.

    As cool an idea as this is, I'm a little confused about what you gain by doing this. If you're that worried about Sneak and Show/Big Eldrazi, you can easily run graveyard hate. You can even get away...

    Re: [Deck] Painter-Stone

    How do you combo on turn 3 if you're holding the Painter in hand until you can go off? I don't see how you're hitting 5 mana to play and activate in the same turn. Or is that a separate point?

    As far as 'stock lists' go, check out my post on the last page #4999. It's a sort of template for imperial painter and has a couple of links on it to pre-ban lists.

    Canonist is a great card, and being tutorable by Recruiter is definitely relevant. But the person I was responding to was asking about Damping Sphere for Imperial Painter, and I was asking why you...

    I assume you mean primarily for the storm matchup? I don't know how much better it is than something like Thorn, if at all. They're going to need to answer either before they can combo off, and Thorn...

    Re: [Deck] Imperial Painter

    I would say that the baseline for Imperial Painter (mono-red) looks something like this:

    4 Grindstone
    4 Painter's Servant
    4 Imperial Recruiter

    4 Blood Moon
    1-2 Magus of the Moon

    3-4...

    Re: [Deck] Imperial Painter

    Of those, I think Hanweir Garrison is a reasonable option. The clock is pretty much the same as Rabblemaster (5+7+9), but the card itself is a bit more robust. Satyr Nyx-Smith is also the same clock...
