Thread: What Should I Play In My Metagame?

    Re: What Should I Play In My Metagame?

    I am also new in Legacy and I am in the same boat as Sinkhole. I also sway between building up Grixis Delver or Sneak and Show. But I tend a bit more to Sneak and Show, because I prefer the combo style a bit more over tempo and storm combo is to difficult for starting I think. But is Sneak and Show really that bad? It isn`t played that often like Delver but it regulary goes Top 8 and Sneak and Show should have a few matchups were it is totaly in favor, were Grixis is just most of the time 50/50 against most of the field. So is it worth it to invest in Sneak and Show or is Grixis Delver a more solid choice?

    Re: What Should I Play In My Metagame?

    Hi guys,

    This is what I had in the last metagame breakdown in a nice tournament I played.

    Storm/TES - 5
    Grixis Delver - 4
    UWx Miracles - 4
    SaS - 4
    Burn - 3
    Elves - 3
    Dredge - 2
    Goblins - 2
    BR Reanimator - 2
    DaT - 1
    MonoR Stompy - 1
    Lands - 1
    MUD - 1
    Aggro Loam - 1
    Maverick - 1
    Soldier Stompy - 1
    RUG Delver - 1
    MonoU Show and Tell - 1
    BG Depths - 1
    Cephalid Breakfast - 1
    BUG Delver - 1
    Eldrazi - 1
    Shardless BUG - 1
    Steel Stompy - 1
    UW RiP - 1
    UWx Stoneblade - 1

    With this in mind and going forward to the next event, what should be a good list to play on that ? I'm a Control/Midrange player at heart...

    Thanks for the help ! :)

    Re: What Should I Play In My Metagame?

    Slightly random question. What do you guys think of playing a RUG shell, composed of the blue stuff, adding to it snapcaster and oyf, plus a splinter twin / deceiver 'gotcha' combo? Would this work in MTGO?

    Re: What Should I Play In My Metagame?

    Hey guys,

    I need a little bit of help for deciding which deck i better should build as my second. First I wanted to build up Sneak and Show but the prices of Volcanics and City of Traitor had highly increased in the last months, so now I have to spend again 1300 $ ot build the deck together. As an alternate I came to Bu Reanimator. It would me only cost 500 $ because most of the cards i have laying arround. So do you think Bu Reanimator would be a decent choice again after the DRS ban (or maybe better choice) instead of Sneak and Show?

    Re: What Should I Play In My Metagame?

    So I'm trying to figure out what to jam my time and effort into post-DRS world. I was on Clashed's Punishing Dack list prior to the bans; his new builds have been neat but havent pulled me as hard.

    I've been jamming some Nic Fit and Maverick in the interim; mainly because theyre fun to play - but theyre not as viable as I'd like in a SnS/Miracles meta.

    My LGS is pretty meta representative - Miracles/SnS/Canadian Thresh/Storm/etc

    Budget isnt a concern. Have access to pretty much all duals / common RL pieces. I'd like to find something that has enough of a ceiling that there's value in jamming additional reps on MTGO.

    Help

    I've been on the same search and I keep waffling between the following: 4c Loam, Grixis Control, Esper Stoneblade, and Miracles. I like the play style of Grixis Control and 4c Loam the most. I think Esper Stoneblade is underplayed at the moment though.

    Same line of thinking!
    I've got 4c Loam and Esper "sleeved up" on MTGO right now. Still feeling it out though; 4c Loam hasn't impressed but I REALLY wanted to like it. The search continues

    Hello everyone,
    Starting to get back into the game after not having played in quite a while (since well before the probe/DRS bans), and I'm curious to know people's thoughts on what an "ideal" deck would be for a local metagame loaded up with chalice/blood moon prison decks, a contingent of delver decks of various types, and a smattering of Miracles.

    4 Color Loam maybe with Goyfs? I know you said blood moon decks, but you can beat a moon deck as long as you pack enough hate.

    Nourishing lich or Paul wall aggro imo.

    I feel like Goblins might have a place there. Sure Chalice on 1 on the draw hurts a bit; but you've got game against most of that field.

    I was actually considering goblins as well.

    Thank you everyone for the responses.

    Definite possibility. I hadn't thought of this...

    Re: What Should I Play In My Metagame?

    What of these three decks do you think could be more competitive : 4 COLORS LOAM / TIN FINS DEPTHS / BG LOAM POX? Thank you in advance.

    Re: What Should I Play In My Metagame?

    So my meta consists of like ~12 people on any given legacy night:
    2-3 lands
    1-2 4c loam
    1-3 miracles
    1-2 UW stoneblade
    1-4 grixis control
    1-3 Wx DnT
    1 goblins
    me on either painter (U stompy, imperial, shortcake, daretti spaghetti.. dependant on what i feel on the day) or solidarity.

    What sort of deck would actually be suited to a meta like this? it's a pretty nutty control/grindfest heavy craziness, and they all give me the stink-eye when i whip out solidarity.

    Any ideas what i should try to focus on (amongst decks i have or decks that share a similar DNA)?
    Legacy decks: mono U painter, strawberry shortcake, imperial painter, solidarity, burn
    EDH decks: zedruu voltron, rakdos the defiler, persistent petitioners, blind seer

    0 combo decks? Kind of looks like a good meta for Burn. Or any deck that preys on fair decks, basically.

    Mentor Deathblade
    The Mind Harvester
    Wb Tokens
    4c Nobleblade

    Re: What Should I Play In My Metagame?

    My friend's looking to get into Legacy because he hates creatures and this is the only competitive format that scratches that itch. What other decks should I suggest to him besides Miracles, ANT, TES, Lands, Pox, High Tide, Enchantress, and Doomsday?

    Re: What Should I Play In My Metagame?

    Wondering if anyone could help with an opinion, I saw some interesting decks, that are quite cost effective on MTGO and that have shown some results. Fully appreciate they are not T1, have holes, will fail against something, but I'm wondering if they are pure dross or actually have something favourable going for them:

    Nic-Fit: https://www.mtgtop8.com/event?e=21401&d=343222

    RG Titan Post: https://www.mtggoldfish.com/archetyp...an-post#online

    GWU Enchantress: https://www.mtgtop8.com/event?e=21493&d=344039

    Elves: https://www.mtggoldfish.com/deck/1877998#online

    Thanks.

    Lands, UW RIP Helm, Belcher, MonoR Storm. He can also do like Stax based on artifacts or on Moon Stompy that works also. Hoogland also played a superfriend deck, that can be a good choice today, with innocent blood and control cards + planeswalkers.

    Thanks.

    I think elves is extremely powerful, but as one of the hardest decks to play in legacy, I would try it out before to see if you really like its play style. Enchantress is also a great deck, but I would wait on the Narset hype to calm down a bit to play it.
    The titanpost seems like a port from modern, I can't give much an opinion if it will do well XD, and Nic Fit has been proved as being a consistent legacy deck enough to see result.
