    Re: Curse Stompy! (Meme Deck, or, maybe not...)

    For Oops, they don't even care what the text on the front side says. It could be a 16-mana 1/1 and they would play it, because it's untapped colored permanent mana source that counts as a spell.

    Re: Relentless Neheb Brew (Tier3)

    Minotaur Stompy just got a huge boost from Akoum Warrior. This is a Mountain that can also be a 3-mana 4/5 trample flash. Didgeridoo.dec wants expensive Minotaurs to cheat out. Normally you have to...

    Interesting.

    It looks like it's adding a lot of value for you by letting you run a whopping 14 black-producing lands + 4 Chrome Mox = 18 permanent black sources, which is unheard of in a stompy...

    Good points.

    Re: Eight Crab - The new Mill.

    We were already working on UB mill in a different thread. 8x Crab makes it even better.

    Archive Trap is by far the most mana-efficient mill effect, at 13 cards for 0 mana. Instant 4x of.

    Re: 4 Card Blind

    Right. The minimal cost to go off is just 2 0/1 Plants + UGG (the two lands), which can start as early as turn 4, after playing Floodbringer on turn 3 and chumping.

    That's why maxx! can't beat it...

    London Mulligan has about the same chance to find Hermit as using SP.

    Re: 4 Card Blind

    If you block and trade with the Zombie, the 0/2 can attack as a 1/3. It's not a wall.

    Trading is bad for you, but according to Reeplcheep you might be able to race.
