Thread: Thalia Stompy

  1. #601

    Re: Thalia Stompy

    Went 3-0 (unfortunately there were only 3 rounds this time) on local, beating Eldrazi Stompy, B/W Tokens(ish) and UR Delver.

    Slight changes to the board since last time: doubled up on Pontiff, and swapped a couple Thorns for Glowriders. The added body is relevant, and so is the interaction with cavern (which makes it the choice over vryn wingmare). The extra mana is fine as it is usually the turn 2 play, after a chalice or thalia on 1, and on some occasions multiple thorns would interfere with eachother.

    List:

    4 Thalia, Guardian of Thraben
    3 Smuggler’s Copter
    3 Walking Ballista
    2 Thalia, Heretic Cathar
    2 Eldrazi Displacer
    2 Blade Splicer
    4 Thought-Knot Seer
    4 Palace Jailer
    1 Reality Smasher

    4 Chalice of the Void
    4 Mox Diamond

    4 Ancient Tomb
    4 Eldrazi Temple
    4 Cavern of Souls
    3 Karakas
    6 Plains
    3 Mishra’s Factory
    3 Wasteland

    1 Blessed Alliance
    1 Seal of Cleansing
    1 Sorcerous Spyglass
    2 Orzhov Pontiff
    2 Absolute Law
    2 Cast Out
    3 Faerie Macabre
    1 Thorn of Amethyst
    2 Glowrider

    I am very much enjoying this list, and will try and make it to a bigger tourney this weekend for further testing.

    Also curious!

    I happened across a list running Lodestone Golem and the SFM package on MTGO the other day and it seemed really solid; but I'm not sure I'm ready to go that deep yet. But curious if there are alternative directions to take the list as well.

    Re: Thalia Stompy

    Some food for thought: Taken from the D&T thread, but discussing it here might have some merit:

    Orzhov Advokist

    kioken praises it alot, although I'm sceptical due to the lack of evasion. It is already a fast clock by itself, though. However, what catched my eye is the combo with Walking Ballista, which kioken hasn't even tested yet. With this, you can load up counters on the Ballista very fast for board control, fast beats (doubles the damage due to pinging in the final turn) and reach, even blocked by Ensnaring Bridge and the likes. Eldrazi Displacer could also clear counters from creatures, if necessary.

    Might be too cute (and stone-cold dead vs TNN), but the concept behind it sounds intriguing, as Thalia Stompy would be a much better shell for it than D&T.
    Currently working on: Infinity Stompy

    Another interesting card but the lack of disruption attached may hurt the playability in this deck

    Re: Thalia Stompy

    Played this at a small weekly tournament yesterday and went 3-1

    2-1 Vs Green 12-post - (Cataclysm out of the SB was gold here)
    2-1 Vs Lands - (Thalia, Heretic Cathar slowed my opponent down enough)
    1-2 Vs UR Delver - (Only had slow "Plains go" openings and never saw any of my Chalices, should have used my mulligans more aggressively. Holy Light Was really strong here and took home the one W)
    2-0 Vs Grixis Artifact/PW control - (Easily the most interesting game with the weirdest situations, Gideon, Ally of Zendikar was MVP)

    Decklist
    Code:
    4 Stoneforge Mystic
    4 Thalia, Guardian of Thraben
    3 Thalia, Heretic Cathar
    4 Eldrazi Displacer
    4 Thought-Knot Seer
    2 Palace Jailer
    4 Reality Smasher
    
    1 Gideon Blackblade
    
    1 Sword of Fire and Ice
    1 Batterskull
    4 Chalice of the Void
    3 Mox Diamond
    
    4 Ancient Tomb
    3 City of Traitors
    4 Eldrazi Temple
    4 Cavern of Souls
    8 Plains
    2 Karakas
    
    Sideboard
    4 Containment Priest
    3 Rest in Peace
    2 Sanctum Prelate
    1 Umezawa’s Jitte
    1 Holy Light
    1 Disenchant
    1 Blast Zone
    1 Cataclysm
    1 Gideon, Ally of Zendikar
    The deck felt strong but no matches were lopsided either.

    My biggest issue was the amount of times I felt that I had to settle for a 'Plains go' start when I really wanted to drop something on turn one, the only option I see to remedy this is to add a Lotus Petal or two but I'm not hyped on cutting anything from the MD and not thrilled on the prospect of drawing them midgame either.

    Pretty nice.
    About your issue, why don't you play Chrome Mox?

    There are too many lands and colorless spells to make room for Chrome Mox I'm afraid.

    I've tried the Chrome Mox Version with fewer lands and more colored spells but found that I like the Mox Diamond version better.

    Edit: Somehow I missed adding my Mox Diamond in the decklist in my original post, my bad.

    Lets you search for either Wastes or Plains. Mana was one of the biggest problems with this deck so I can see this being an auto include. Maybe 4 of.
