    Re: Fantastic Mr. Fox (Zirda/Monoliths combo)

    Greaves protects Engineer / Emry / Zirda and gives haste. It seems useful.

    Forgemaster works as a 3x in MUD (4 Grim + 4 Metalworker), so I thought it should work as a 2-of in a deck with 4x Grim...

    Goblin Engineer and Emry, Lurker of the Loch are both effectively better versions of Welder here because they even tutor for the combo pieces. Karn also acts as both a tutor and an alternate win...

    Re: Fantastic Mr. Fox (Zirda/Monoliths combo)

    Unfortunately this deck can't run Defense Grid, despite all the colorless mana.

    Another angle you could take for combo protection in the white shell is Isochron Scepter + Orim's Chant.

    This is what a combo deck looks like, right?


    //Spells: 26
    4 Force of Will
    4 Brainstorm
    4 Ponder

    Re: Fantastic Mr. Fox (Zirda/Monoliths combo)

    Interesting.

    Unfortunately you can't run any of these cards:
    Power Artifact (alternate infinite combo engine, would increase consistency and justify the Xerox shell)
    Mesmeric Orb (alternate...

    The Echo build is pretty good! It could use some tuning for consistency and protection but overall I like the shell.

    I think you lose this.

    Re: Song of Creation Storm

    Yeah this looks like it needs a tutor badly to find Song of Creation. I would consider a backup engine too, maybe Experimental Frenzy.

    Because Song costs 4 mana and you have to keep casting spells...

    Re: 4 Card Blind

    Ah.. that makes a lot more sense. So you had Shallow Grave to annihilate boards, and otherwise you ramp to hardcast Emrakul. Now I understand what your deck was supposed to do!

    If you're struggling against aggro, why not cut some of the maindeck durdle (Night's Whisper, extra Helms) for more creatures to interact early.

    Re: [Deck] Four Color SnowDrift

    I mean that's exactly what I was saying... adding slow high-variance control cards doesn't help the Snowko shell. It's already tier 1, so unlike some tier 4 deck, adding this conditional engine...

    Re: [Deck] Four Color SnowDrift

    Are you implying that Snowko is weak and needs a boost so badly it would benefit from high-variance control cards?

    Until Oko and Astrolabe are banned this concept seems moot. Slide and Yidaro...

    Re: 4 Card Blind

    Crack the Earth isn't that good. It's a reactive 1-for-2, probably worse than Raze.

    It's conditionally good in that deck (Mental Misstep+ suspend threat) because it can act like a Balance deck....

    The main pieces all have 2 in the cost. What does 1 cmc add here? If Mogg Fanatic could be another wincon then you don't need red mana and can play Chalice of the Void?
