Also, no one actually enjoys playtesting vs Dredge. That in part, leads to poor performance of hating it out effectively.
I played 4 pieces of power in my Dark Hate Bear deck despite often wanting to land Stony Silence. You can also beta out the Savannah's and easily spend more than unlimited moxes.
- Assume your graveyard will not exist in G2/G3. Either play enough hate to counter it, and possibly board into more lands (2 extra Gemstone Mines perhaps).
- Firestorm is a good out to Yixlid jailer, which is showing up more often.
Question: How hard would it be to trade up into power?
I have a handful of duals, a set of goyfs, some high-end foils (StP, tangle wire, some others), and I can probably trade away my foiled TES (Still have esper-blade and high tide), which is pretty much all english foiled, with FBB german duals.
Would those trade fairly easily into power, and without having excess trade-up percentages? (i.e. standard into dual margins)
Well, I don't exactly live in a country with that many pieces of power floating around. Only one store has some in stock, and they trade at SCG buylist prices, so that's off.
The only player I really see with spare power ALSO sells his cards at SCG prices.
I'm left with MOTL, pretty much lol
G2/3 If you don't see Leyline turn 0 It's probably safe to assume the hand was kept with other hate(Cage/Jailer) or a quick Tinker/Oath/combo. Blind Sniping with Therapy is crucial. Unmask is good right now.
MUD will almost always have Cage/Crypt/Relic. Other decks will vary their hate.
Dismember or Contagion(Hits multiple Jailers) might be better with Misstep around.
Chewer and Wispmare dodges Misstep/Pierce/Fluster/Duress/Thorn Of Am/Chalice and can sometimes get you bridge tokens(Rarely can DReturn for their come into play effect)
Thanks for the help guys. AT GP:Minneapolis, I managed to finish my Bazaars. I then spent a few hours goldfishing Dredge in the hotel room :)
Couldn't pass up on the Candelabras. They're not for Dredge though. They're beat, but they were cheap :)
