    So... 10 years later and Threshold is still the best deck?

    3 Tarmogoyf, Hooting Mandrills over Tarmogoyf. Did people finally realize that it's just a vanilla creature?

    Wow, and 7 decks without any basic lands.

    No combo deck in Top 8 :-(

    You've obviously done very well to get into the Top 8. However, you look so~ nervous under the camera, i.e. the Ponder short-cut shuffle thing. Randy was pretty critical on the game one of Semi-final on Picking up Bskull, and then got a slow-play warning because SB taking too long. Instead of losing Jace to DRS, could have just Jace-fateseal your opponent to keep its loyalty at 4. You can semi-ensure that Delver won't flip. Even if it did flip, cannot kill Jace without killing the DRS on your side.

    Boring. Meta is stagnent. I liked it more when Miracles was around, and top is cancer.

    I'm not sure what was wrong with the BSkull play, I'll have to watch it on camera later.

    As for the Jace in game 2 of the BUG Delver matchup, I know I punted that one, trust me. The correct line was to Brainstorm. If I hit removal (which I would have), I'm really far ahead. If I don't, but he doesn't flip his Delver, I'm really far ahead. Why I bounced his Delver and went down to 1 counter... who knows. I played 23 rounds of magic this weekend, so I'm a little fried.

    This isn't true at all. That tournament could be run back the next week and there could be significant changes in representation. Or pick another large tournament and compare. Top 8s change significantly based on even minor decisions and play mistakes at some point during the day. They change based on pairings, sideboarding, tiebreakers, luck of the draw, and more. You can certainly prefer other eras of Legacy, but it's false to claim things are stagnant.

    Good joke.


    Top 8 is not representative of meta. Top 32 is closer to a representation of solid decks, but at a 700+ person tournament, I'd even go so far as to say top 64 is where you should be looking.

    I just watched game 1 against BUG Delver where there was the Batterskull play, but I did the math at the time and my opponent had lethal unless I blocked. I went back and checked my lifepad paper, and I had myself at 10, but the footage shows me at 11, so I'm not sure what happened there. I probably wrote down my life going down by 1 when he fetched instead of him or something. I was a complete mess that round. I wouldn't have made Top 8 if I played like that in the Swiss. Oh well.
