    Re: [Primer/Deck] Pox

    That is an easy shift to make. I'm already on Bridge/Lantern of Insight in my version of Pox. This is a gravy card for that setup.

    Re: [Primer/Deck] Pox

    I think this card is going to need some discussion for traditional Pox decks, it's pretty good. It is card advantage with the monarch and a threat as well. Curving Liliana of the Veil into this will...

    Re: SHiV (Shadow-Hollow-Vine)

    Potentially testing these cards soon:

    Lingering Souls
    Haunted Dead


    Haunted Dead triggers Prized Amalgam and is an enabler. I know that 2-mana enablers aren't perfect, although Lotleth Troll...

    YES, Jeska's Will is a straight swap for Light up the Stage in my list if it turns out real. :smile:

    Re: Ruby Storm

    I won't play this. Bonus Round guarantees doubling up. It will only take 1-2 times of whiffing to see this is not a reliable engine card.

    Re: Commander Legends Spoilers

    For one more mana you get Bonus Round, which guarantees a Fork on every spell. I don't think this is a storm card.

    If the spell is returned to your hand it doesn't resolve right? So it isn't a free buyback or Fork every time? Just so I understand how good this card really is...

    A 4-color hogaak list just took 1st at a small event:

    Re: SHiV (Shadow-Hollow-Vine)

    I was losing even against 'bad' combo decks like Ruby Storm in testing. Because we aren't favored we need to mulligan to disruption g2-3 anyways because we just can't race fast enough (reliably.)...

    Re: SHiV (Shadow-Hollow-Vine)

    I definitely suggest you work towards a standard Hogaak list, it sounds right up your alley.

    Re: SHiV (Shadow-Hollow-Vine)

    I was doing some small testing last night, just goldfishing against some other brews, and I think we need some sort of answer to problems on-board in the main deck. I didn't go for the Brainstorm...

    The whole point of revisiting the thread was to include 8x Steppe Lynx (Akoum Hellhound.) Guide Beast isn't good on turn 1 because it sets us back a land drop (twice if we attack turns 1-2) and we...

    Re: SHiV (Shadow-Hollow-Vine)

    Short testing session against Burn and Turbo Depths. Lotleth Troll is too slow without Lotus Petal, 15 lands is 1 too many, and I have had zero problems getting Shadow online by turn 2. I wouldn't...

    Re: SHiV (Shadow-Hollow-Vine)

    I agree completely. The other important aspect is I could really use a few more fetchlands to feed Death's Shadow. Traditional Shadow lists play 9 fetches, where I'm down to 7-8.

    List I'll be...

    Street Wraith and Faerie Macabre are the best black reusable creatures, but others would be Fleshbag Marauder and Shriekmaw. Call to the Netherworld will never be anything but card parity, so the...

    It's a cool concept for sure, but Vintage is just too different than legacy. They absolutely *must* have the counterspells to compete. In legacy we need a way to get on-board fast and race, like a...

    Great feedback! I don't think we can really fight Pox in any meaningful way, regardless of the tweaks we could make, especially now that we have cut Bloodghast. Life from the Loam could be good in...

    That makes a lot of sense. The way I figure it, 1 basic swamp won't make the difference between winning/losing against Wasteland decks I don't think. I think it's better to just have the highest...
