    Relavant to thread:
    Eldrazi was the savior we needed. Tough break on that last game, but I mean you couldn't hope for anything better. Hans just seemed to have it all that game.

    He got the inconsistent chalice deck draw and lost to more consistent brainstorm ponder deck. The chalice deck doesn't get to keep 1 land hands and fix them with ponder and brainstorm. They get to mulligan to oblivion while Hanni gets to run a 4 color 18 land deck attempting to cast Jace because he has brainstorm, ponder probe and Deathrite and can keep basically any 7 with at least a fetch

    I think you are right. You don't see it.

    On topic, congrats to HJ for the win, solid deck and play on camera.

    Is it really 4 color though, when the only green spell in the deck is also a black spell, with a single Trop in the maindeck? I never activated Deathrite's green ability all weekend, although I did play an EE for 4 on two different occasions, so there was that.

    I get what you're saying though... 18 lands and 2 JTMS in the maindeck being possible because of the cantrips.

    True. It's not a slight against you. I like your deck a lot. I plan on trying it out (though I don't really like Stoneforge), it's just a testament to how dumb the cantrips plus deathrite are. Maverick plays 9 mana dorks and has to play 23 lands just to be consistent enough.

    4 rainbow mana dorks and enough cantrips to find what you need is just a winning strategy in magic.
    Tusk up.
