    Re: [Deck] Dreadstill - Enter the Fist

    Not too bad for first time with the deck. On your 3x non-FoW counters, I wouldn't run Pierce over Snare. I quite like FoN x2 + Snare in this shell.

    Against Bomberman: don't cut Karn or Verdict....

    This feels like more of a pie, for a cake must have layers.

    Verdict is an important effect which was allows us to sit around biding our time. Without it, you have forced yourself into being the beatdown and increased your reliance on Dreadnought connecting...

    The idea is interesting, sure; but whole standard decks are reduced to drawing one of their four copies of something that fits into a very specific sequence, and has no text outside that sequence....

    Really depends on your playstyle. You could Blood Sun to stop them, or you could use their strategy against them. It's not like a Golos deck can play around a 3/3 menace clock and any removal. On...

    Re: [Deck] Dreadstill - Enter the Fist

    There's a lot going on vs Depths, and a good amount of subgame openers. It might be a mana denial opener, might be a Standstill game, might be a Dreadnought game, or it might be a PW game. They might...

    if you're trying to use Stifle, you have to target the Stage activation to copy . You can't Stifle a Depths sac trigger to any effect (it will show back up once Stifle resolves). You [I]can Wasteland...

    I'm guessing the issue is a play pattern of Island, Mox Opal, Mox Amber, Emry -> turn 2 Urza, with backup plan = value if no Urza.

    So we're failing to understand that Burn just dies to Dreadnought, cause it always has. It doesn't matter what colors the Dreadnought is using, it's quicker than Burn *when* you have it (this takes 2...

    The issue is that standard is a format of playing yourself to hellbent and relentlessly jamming whatever you draw. There is no real control or interaction, and even if you had a diet Wasteland, you...

    It was the card that was first responsible for unlocking UW as a playable colorset (i.e. turning top of deck into zone of value, see also E Tutor). Scroll is mostly better, except when you need CA in...

    No it‘s more about welcome to legacy where there is such a thing as not great matchups. Depths has plenty of bad matchups and there‘s nothing they can do about it (no 1-2 SB slot fix-all). NBC RUG...

    I‘m thinking with all the legacy staples in NBC including Wasteland and a 2 mana Crucible that RUG is doing okay vs Depths. RUG doesn‘t need to be a deck that can intrinsically pressure Lage without...

    Hopefully you got them at $10-15 apiece b/c that‘s honestly what they should cost. This $60 pricetag we‘re starting to see is a bit over the top.
