    Re: [Deck] Solidarity

    Hello,

    A few weeks ago I got to play some magic at last !

    4 swiss rounds to an unimpressive 2-2.

    I registered the following list:

    6 fetch
    12 island

    I'm still impressed by my setup (3 Wrenn /3 pierce /4 Hexdrinker / 50 classic). But I have the same feeling as Qweerios. The W6 count in the deck will decrease in a midterm perspective:

    Re: [Deck] Canadian Threshold (aka RUG Delver, Tempo Thresh)

    That was a rough idea for sideboarding plan.

    You cannot really compare W6 to TNN.

    TNN CMC is higher than W6. Sure it's on color (for FOW) but still 1 mana is huge (especially in RUG) and we are...

    Re: [Deck] Canadian Threshold (aka RUG Delver, Tempo Thresh)

    Did you jam a few games with 2+ W6 in your 60 ?

    3 seems to be the actual trend.

    Don't see W6 as only a recurring "wasteland" tool but rather as a not so bad CA machine:

    Re: [Deck] Solidarity

    Usual stock list played 18 lands.
    I chose to play 19 (my curve is also slightly higher).

    With 18 lands, you have
    - 7 % to have no land in your opening hand
    - 24.5 % to have just 1 land

    Both are a pain but both cost 3 mana meaning either your opponent is going for it (full tap on T3) or he elects to play it "protected" and might wait til T4 or 5.
    If they wait, you should in a...

    1) Solidarity is usually not expected. High Tide decks are not quite common. Discard isn't THAT rough (Meditate is a hell of a card). Solidarity won't lose to a single attack angle if it is what you...

    I was suggesting that setup a month ago in this very thread.

    Reach is very nice indeed.

    Re: [Deck] Canadian Threshold (aka RUG Delver, Tempo Thresh)

    This is a possibility as it may better shine in a BUG shell than a RUG one but the initial idea was to get some synergy with Wren.

    Wren does allow us to operate on more than 2/3 lands as most of...

    You do.
    It requires to spend only 1 mana/turn and leave 1 mana opened in the beginning but when you get Wren recurring fetchlands it is very nice.

    You should try to play the following creature lists:

    4 Hexdrinker
    4 Delver
    4 Tarmo

    With 2 or 3 Wren in your 60.

    I would rather say it is an upgrade to "Winged Sliver" not Galerider. CMC 1 is the real deal.

    Unsettled Mariner seems to have some potential. Not sure it is Legacy playable but I could see a mix...

    Don't get me wrong. I was just saying replacing Remand by Reversal might not be great.
    However, replacing Snapcaster by Reversal might accelerate us while diminishing our grave dependancy.

    How do you like Reversal ?

    It opens up a few "cool" plays BUT it was usually too narrow:

    + spare 1 mana compared with Remand...
