    Re: [Deck] Strawberry Shortcake

    If I were going to replace one of the current graveyard cards with a macabre, it would probably be a surgical; not a relic. I understand the desire to be able to tutor for a graveyard hater with...

    Re: [Deck] Strawberry Shortcake

    That and Karn into lattice just wins. The other good news is that with engineer you can just combo off much faster. I would probably consider using tutors for combo pieces vs Blood Moon in post-SB...

    Until London mulligan kicks in you are probably correct.

    Re: Source Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Meta

    Well done! I'm just mad that you keep making the deck get more attention!

    Like you said, everything changes now again. Will be interesting to see what happens.

    Re: [Deck] Strawberry Shortcake

    I don't think I would replace lattice. It's such a strong lock that if you have opponent's creatures under control the game is just over with the combo out. Coating doesn't come close to that. The...

    Re: [Deck] Strawberry Shortcake

    With engineer, I would probably switch to ratchet bomb. That way you won't have to pay any Mana to use it to kill chalice and you can still tick it up to kill other things as needed. E.e. will...

    First, you may not have the Mana to cast Karn... again. What if you cast Karn with a Sol land and 2 petals? You may be exactly protecting yourself when you have to discard your hand.

    You are working under the assumption that you aren't missing any land drops, and we all know how unlikely that is with this deck. One of the best things about LED is that you can totally function...

    I totally agree and in fact, I am currently playing 3 blood moon main in my list as I think it is much better against all the other Sol land and post decks running around lately. Our fast Mana gives...

    Re: [Deck] Strawberry Shortcake

    So, the LED main I think is mostly used as an e.tutor target. If you have other combo pieces in hand you can e.tutor for a fast win. Otherwise yes, I agree that it is sometimes awkward.

    Re: [Deck] Strawberry Shortcake

    I've had so many games now where I turn 2 or 3 Karn off of a petal or two, get LED and on turn 3-4 play lattice Lock. I currently am playing one LED main for e.tutor (and will get much better with...

    Re: [Deck] Strawberry Shortcake

    Personally, if I only had 1 LED I would stick it in the SB and in your list cut the REB. Most others will probably tell you to cut the 20th land.

    Re: [Deck] Strawberry Shortcake

    I don't know. I'm not sure about engineer yet. The benefit is definitely in imperial. The tutor factor in that deck is very good. On the other hand, it's a turn slower than e.tutor and doesn't get...

    Re: [Deck] Strawberry Shortcake

    I play one LED main and one in the SB myself and I love it. I also play 4 x Karn main though. Karn get LeD then get lattice is nice.

    Re: [Deck] Strawberry Shortcake

    The other situation is that you might push Karn out with fast Mana and then need LED the next turn to play a lattice, etc.

    Re: [Deck] Strawberry Shortcake

    That certainly can be true, although LED in this deck can play other roles as well. First, sometimes you just need to put a card in your hand into the graveyard. For example, say I have a welder...

    Re: [Deck] Strawberry Shortcake

    Yeah, welder and tutor are great against discard. Just try to leverage those cards in those matchups. I think I have the cards for grixis control so I can throw it together if you want.

    Regarding Solar Blaze, I was just throwing it out there. Again, as I originally said, it's probably over-costed. I also agree that I don't like the fact that it is sorcery speed, but so is...

    Re: [Deck] Strawberry Shortcake

    But in both of those cases, lavaman would just be better. Obviously ballista is good because you can find it with a tutor or with Karn from the board. But main deck I'm not sure. I guess CC 3+...
