    Re: Grixis Phoenix

    Nice job! How were the Surgical Extractions and Dazes?

    I'm not fully on board with cutting discard spells and a Preordain honestly, especially a Cabal Therapy.




    Last night I did some...

    Re: Minotaur Tribal (AKA Toot toot!)

    Definitely. Or if you have Adaption out Lackey can put anything in, or Matron can tutor for any creature. Let's make it happen.

    Re: Grixis Phoenix

    Mmm this is nice! I'll give it a whirl soon as you say.



    Yeah all good, thanks for suggesting it! The deck can play out differently to how it looks on face value and is a bit unintuitive in...

    Re: Grixis Phoenix

    I tried CB out a bunch in the early lists. It's OK, but a bit low power level and 2 mana is a lot for this deck.



    I think Regrowth falls into what you quoted actually, it's expensive in the...

    Re: Grixis Phoenix

    OK, I'll try and get around to trying it soon! I can see the potential. I think at the beginning I may have zoned in on just fetching Phoenixes, but it is pretty gross with YP and Therapy.

    Re: Grixis Phoenix

    I tried Land Grant in a Rit/Buried shell through a league last night, base BUG with Goyfs over YPs and a couple of Decays in the main, it felt horrible unfortunately.

    I would usually give it some...

    Re: Grixis Phoenix

    It's interesting alright!

    This is my gut reaction

    - smallballing Phoenixes generally isn't a winning play in the format. What I mean by that is discarding them to a looting effect and getting...

    Re: Grixis Phoenix

    Lighting Bolt is still a good card. I think Forked is probably better in this deck, but it's not going to be a huge difference.

    I've actually been a bit disappointed with Flusterstorms and Spell...

    Glad to hear you're enjoying it and having some success!

    Bobs are indeed great, really nice addition. I have been seeing the lack of Tombstalker hurts the Delver matchups though, but that's one of...

    Re: [Deck] TEP (The Epic Pit)

    Probably not honestly, it seems like a natural synergy of Reclamation wanting ramp but land based ramp rather than fast mana, but if the deck was able to play with natural land drops it could be fine.

    Re: [Deck] TEP (The Epic Pit)

    The win cons are Nexus of Fate, Blue Sun's Zenith or Empty the Pits.

    The deck is control, you play a long game and with BSZ you essentially can draw your deck which then lets you use Nexus to take...

    Re: Grixis Phoenix

    Yep, instant speed would be the reason to play it.

    But we have our own threats and ways to close out the game already, in my experience so far it's been hard to even get Echoing Truth to land on...

    Re: Grixis Phoenix

    Cantrips are really, really damn good. I've seen a lot of people on various platforms cutting them and I don't really understand it.

    Re: Grixis Phoenix

    Hey! I agree, now that I've played vs it too I really struggle to sb vs it from a number of decks, it's certainly one of this decks biggest strengths which is nice. Bob has especially performed.

    Re: Buried Phoenix

    The hardest matchups so far for me have been Depths (esp BUG), Lands, Aggro Loam and Eldrazi. The latter two are much easier to beat than Depths and Lands, but still tough. We have little to no way...

    Adding another threat is fine, I want a 4th Young Pyromancer in the deck too but have been struggling to find space now.

    Thanks!

    Dark Confidant was really good on Sunday, but that was my first time trying it so it's still a very small sample size. I'll keep playing him to try it more, Tombstalker is also excellent...

    It was mostly a narrow hedge for Elves. The deck has been doing well the last few challenges and I think it's strong right now, the matchup has felt close but slightly unfavoured for us.

    You're right that Chancellor is part of the reason, second is being able to cantrip into a Crypt from turn one. Since they're almost exclusively for GY based decks, most of which are very fast, it's...
