    He can do this every other turn, so it doesn't even look like you have a win there.
    2 Harriers vs 1 Chrono: (or any other fatty like Eldrazi or Infect)
    Harrier #1 taps Chrono on his combat step. In response, he can grow it.
    Both Harriers untap. Harrier #2 attacks and gets through.
    Harrier #1 taps Chrono on his combat step...
    Repeat
    WW.

    Harrier #2 could be any generic 1/1. The 2nd creature was a Harrier to be redundant through removal like Wretched Banquet. 1 Harrier vs 1 Chrono draws.
    The same thing happens vs Blackmail + Legionnaire.

    Tapping dodges Unearth, while removal walks me into a 2nd Chrono and then I'd be playing 2 cards vs 3 cards (Wasteland is a wasted slot). I wouldn't have beat the Chrono deck, but it draws. Basic + 3 cards is an inherently bad matchup for Wasteland + 2 cards, so my goal was just to avoid a loss, while hopefully beating nonbasic decks.

    2 Harriers + Wasteland would have scored 52 points last week, losing only to the Affliction decks (banned) and taking 0 losses against everything else. But of course the meta smartly shifted around Wasteland. This was a classic choice of play the DTB vs play around the DTB.

    Oh right, you can just keep tapping in beginning of combat step. Duh. Never mind.

    Re: 4 Card Blind

    I probably outthought myself to choose Encroach over Wasteland. Ah well, lets see what happens.

    1. Asthereal (TO): Saprazzan Skerry, Force of Will, Infiltrator il-Kor, Infiltrator il-Kor
    FoW beats Encroach when needed, and I lose the race to unblockable threats. LL

    0-6

    2. dte: Swamp, Swamp, isochron scepter, Geth's Verdict
    Nice deck, and I can't interact with it. LL

    0-6

    3. Reeplcheep: Wasteland, Plains, Sacred Cat, Kitesail
    OTP: I can Encroach Wasteland to strand Kitesail in your hand, and force trades with your Cat twice. D
    OTD: You are able to race me with a flying life gain cat. L

    1-4

    4. GoblinSmashmaster: Hickory Woodlot, Channel, Eldrazi Devastator, Whispersilk Cloak
    OTP: Encroach your Woodlot to strand your hand. W
    OTD: Get crushed by a guy I can't block and deathtouch. Wasteland is looking so much better than Encroach right about now. L

    3-3

    5. Wrath of Pie: Wasteland, Plains, Akrasan Squire, Sacred Cat
    Wasteland and Encroach are useless, your "3" threats beats my 2 deathtouchers. LL

    0-6

    6. alphastryk: Swamp, Encroach, Hired Poisoner, Hired Poisoner
    This is me

    7. H: Pendelhaven, Lush Growth, Thornscape Apprentice, Orochi Leafcaller
    OTP: Encroach your Pendelhaven to strand your hand. W
    OTD: Encroach is a brick I get to play only 1 creature before Lush Growth takes care of my swamp. L

    3-3

    8. maxx!: Forest, Glistener Elf, Invigorate, Scale Up
    Encroach does nothing, but I should always be able to get a death touch blocker out and attack with my other deathtoucher, and you can't afford to trade. WW

    6-0

    9. silkster: Swamp, Night Market Lookout, Paralyze, Blackmail
    Encroach is a brick, so it looks like Blackmail always takes one of my Poisoners and Paralyze takes care of the other. LL

    0-6

    10. FTW: Wasteland, Plains, Goldmeadow Harrier, Goldmeadow Harrier
    Wasteland and Encroach are useless, when I'm OTP I can start the race, forcing you to eventually block for a draw, otherwise the tappers allow you to dictate the race timing in your favor. DL

    1-4

    11. Tylert: Aether vial, Ingot Chewer, Faceless butcher, Mountain
    Encroach is useless, and I think you can always win after all the threats are on the table (Butcher hiding one of my Poisoners). You can attack with Chewer and if I ever trade I lose to the unopposed Butcher. LL

    0-6

    Total: 14 points.

    Wasteland confirmed better than Encroach. Whoops!

    6. Alphastryk: Once again, if you don't play anything, I have to vial in butcher to apply pressure and it leads to a double draw. 2-2 --> 21
    7. H: If you don't play anything, I have to play butcher to apply pressure and then we both can't attack profitably. 2-2 --> 23
    8. maxx!: Too fast for me. 0-6 --> 23
    9. silkster: OTP, You can take one threat, but you can't attack after into vial... OTD, You take vial with blackmail. 1-4 --> 24
    10. FTW: Butcher exile one Harrier and him and chewer race a lone harrier. Even if you don't play anything, I have bigger threats. 6-0 --> 30
    11. Me.

    Total = 30. Matches to be reviewed: H, Goblinsmashmaster, Alphastryk.

    Aaaaahhhh I waited so long before playing vial because I really thought it was too slow. I'm glad I waited so much :)

    Anyone else had a different vial deck up their sleeve?? Which choice of creatures?? Ingot chewer was some kind of meta call because I thought people would show up with chrono or vial on that round :) I happened to blow lots of things, but no vial nor chrono :)

    Great timing for Vial!! It paid off.

    I had a very similar deck up my sleeve, with a worse card than Ingot Chewer. Chewer is good tech. Mine would have been too slow for Channel.

    Re: 4 Card Blind

    Round: I forgot Wasteland wasn't banned and just copied someone's deck.

    H: Pendelhaven, Lush Growth, Thornscape Apprentice, Orochi Leafcaller

    1. Asthereal (TO): Saprazzan Skerry, Force of Will, Infiltrator il-Kor, Infiltrator il-Kor
    Lush Growth is pretty good here, forcing you to use the Force and then I can tap the Kor forever and win. 6-0

    2. dte: Swamp, Swamp, isochron scepter, Geth's Verdict
    Unlimited removal I can't stop. 0-6

    3. Reeplcheep: Wasteland, Plains, Sacred Cat, Kitesail
    Forgot Wasteland wasn't already banned. 0-6

    4. GoblinSmashmaster: Hickory Woodlot, Channel, Eldrazi Devastator, Whispersilk Cloak
    Lush does work here. 6-0

    5. Wrath of Pie: Wasteland, Plains, Akrasan Squire, Sacred Cat
    That a Wasteland. 0-6

    6. alphastryk: Swamp, Encroach, Hired Poisoner, Hired Poisoner
    I lost on the Draw to Encroach. On the Play I can use Lush Growth to make sure the second Poisoner can't land and so I can win. 3-3

    7. H: Bye, myself.

    8. maxx!: Forest, Glistener Elf, Invigorate, Scale Up
    I actually think this is a Draw, because I can't get tapping up in time, so I will have to chump block, but then you only have Scale Up left. If you use Scale Up, I take it, if you don't I block and kill the elf, but my creature dies EOT. 2-2

    9. silkster: Swamp, Night Market Lookout, Paralyze, Blackmail
    I think Blackmail has to take Lush, but then I have two threats, plus the Pendlehaven? Might need to think about this more, but maybe 6-0?

    10. FTW: Wasteland, Plains, Goldmeadow Harrier, Goldmeadow Harrier
    Yeah, another Wasteland. 0-6

    11. Tylert: Aether vial, Ingot Chewer, Faceless butcher, Mountain
    I have nothing for Vial. 0-6

    Maybe 23?

    Re: 4 Card Blind

    Me: silkster: Swamp, Night Market Lookout, Paralyze, Blackmail

    1. Asthereal (TO): Saprazzan Skerry, Force of Will, Infiltrator il-Kor, Infiltrator il-Kor
    I wondered if I would face this deck again. It feels like you're lucky to come away with a draw, but a draw is a draw. 2 points

    2. dte: Swamp, Swamp, isochron scepter, Geth's Verdict
    Blackmail does its thing. 6 points
    So many times I find myself waffling between the Deck-To-Beat or targeting the DTB, only to find that you've gone sideways and crushed everything with something I'd never thought of. This time was almost that, except that I actually just thought of Isochron Scepter this week. And the plan had been to use it with Geth's Verdict. But I didn't want to fold to Blackmail, so I just played the Blackmail myself. Curses that one of my reserve strategies is gone!

    3. Reeplcheep: Wasteland, Plains, Sacred Cat, Kitesail
    Paralyze does its thing. 6 points

    4. GoblinSmashmaster: Hickory Woodlot, Channel, Eldrazi Devastator, Whispersilk Cloak
    I saw the cloak and panicked when I realized that you could equip the same turn that you cast it, but then I realized that gave up invulnerability to Blackmail. 6 points

    5. Wrath of Pie: Wasteland, Plains, Akrasan Squire, Sacred Cat
    OTP, discard the Squire, Paralyze the Cat. On the draw, I can only trade resources. WD, 4 points
    I just noticed that this is exactly the Wasteland deck I have in my gauntlet.

    6. alphastryk: Swamp, Encroach, Hired Poisoner, Hired Poisoner
    I always have time to Blackmail one of the Poisoners. 6 points

    7. H: Pendelhaven, Lush Growth, Thornscape Apprentice, Orochi Leafcaller
    I wondered if I'd face this deck again. I have to Blackmail the Growth and Paralyze the Apprentice. The 2/3 Leafcaller is bigger, but can't attack profitably because of the Lookout's life drain. 2 points
    This is a mismatch, but I think my line makes sense.

    8. maxx!: Forest, Glistener Elf, Invigorate, Scale Up
    Cool! I've had T2 Glistener Elf combo on my list since week 1, but I never felt confident in it. 1-mana non-damage based removal is good here. 6 points
    Looking at the other answers, I see now that dte's gauntlet had exactly the same version as mine.

    10. FTW: Wasteland, Plains, Goldmeadow Harrier, Goldmeadow Harrier
    Same as the Poisoners. 6 points

    11. Tylert: Aether vial, Ingot Chewer, Faceless butcher, Mountain
    OTP, I nab the Vial. On the draw, I can't stop you from flashing in the Chewer to block and my sorcery speed removal doesn't help. WD, 4 points
    I was so ready to beat the Unearth with my non-removal removal! This change up has thrown everyone for a loop.

    48 points from 14W + 6D

    When I decided on "safe" last week, I knew that would mean Swamp + 3 1-mana spells, either using Shrieking Affliction or Blackmail. I went with Affliction because it was a hard win condition to answer and I worried that playing only a 1/1 to attack with would give me too many draws. What I didn't realize was that I could still beat a removal spell by discarding it. Fortunately, it wasn't too late for this concoction.

    I've been excited for Paralyze since the start of the Pauper season. I figured I would use it after Snuff Out, but I underestimated Vampire Lacerator and never ended up playing black with removal (except for Fume Spitter which I needed for Bone Picker). I'm surprisingly relieved that it worked out.

    6. alphastryk: Our dead LD cards trade. OTP I would win the race by attacking first, so you have to defend/trade. I trade 1 Harrier with a Poisoner. I hold the other and combat-step tap the other Poisoner to cancel your combat, then untap and attack, which lets me get first damage in unblocked. If you attack back, I win the race. If you don't, then I hold and tap out your guy again, repeat. OTD you can prevent this line by always attacking first while my guys are summoning sick, forcing the trade. WD 4-1
    I love this line. It's so sneaky.

    After the banning of Ghost Quarter, I considered playing Wasteland, but I thought it would be dead in half of my matchups which would then be automatic losses. I knew that a few people might play it, so I tried to avoid it losing to it if I could (safe = mono-Swamp), but I had so completely written off trying to play it that I didn't even notice that 7.5 out of 12 decks last round were vulnerable to it. Interestingly, all of the other decks were mono-Swamp decks.

    4. Goblismashmaster: OTP I can chew cloack then, viakl butcher in one turn before dying. OTD, i'm one turn late. 3-3 --> 15
    6. Alphastryk: Encroach does nothing. Butcher takes one poison dude, chewer attacks for the win. 6-0 --> 27
    7. H: Butcher will get Thornscape apprentice ftw. 6-0 --> 33
    I don't think you can actually beat Eldrazi on the play. GoblinSmashmaster can just do nothing and wait for you. Once you commit a creature to the board, the 8/9 can block forever.
    Same with the Poisoners. You can't play the Ingot Chewer before the Butcher, so you can't force Alphastryk to cast them.
    The matchup against the green men is close. You can't catch anything with the Butcher, but you can run out a 2/3 and a 3/3. H can't play the tapping game, because your other threat beats a 1/1 while Pendelhaven used for mana. If you attack with just Butcher, H blocks with a 2/3. If you attack with the Chewer, H double blocks, loses one dude, then has a 1/1->2/3 to hold you off. If you attack with both, Butcher gets in once, but the Chewer trades, and your 2/3s stare at each other. I now think this is a draw too.

    I just noticed that all three of these opponents listed results that agree with yours. I'm not sure what to think.

    I love this enthusiasm! I had Vial in my gauntlet, but I didn't plan to play it so I never spent the time finding the best things. I thought Ponyback Brigade looked good for dodging spot removal and figured there was some common creature close enough to Nektrataal, but I couldn't find anything better than Blitz Leech, so I left it at that too. Wrath of Pie played them for a reason.

I saw Goblin Commando and basically used that to test against, though I don't think I would have played that.
    You had not spotted faceless butcher? that card seems so strong with vial.

    I looked back at my list and edited my post, so now your post looks made-up, but I definitely did write that first. I know about Butcher, but I didn't look too hard because I figured most decks would either beat the vial itself, go so far over the top that it didn't matter (like Isochron Scepter), or just lose. Oh, you should look at my other edits too, cause I'm worried about your ability to apply pressure in the first place.

    I would be sad to see you lose these points, but I would be happy to see Wasteland banned instead of Aether Vial.

    Agreed, draw OTP.

    Same with the Poisoners. You can't play the Ingot Chewer before the Butcher, so you can't force Alphastryk to cast them.
    Double draw I guess.

    argh agreed....
    won't get banned this week :)

    The key is that chewer costs more than butcher :(

    Wasteland wasteland. Because I tech'd to beat chrono I lose the pseudo mirro. 0-6
    I think Reeplcheep here is right. The Squire makes the Cat attack as a 2/2, and without Kitesail that is insurmountable.

    Yeah, I agree. Kitesail costs 2 to equip, which makes it a dead card in the Wasteland mirror. 2/2 lifelink > 1/1 lifelink

    Similar to Reep, but you have one more body. You have to eventually block me twice, and after that nobody can race because weíll both just have 1/1s that trade. 2-2
    6. alphastryk: Swamp, Encroach, Hired Poisoner, Hired Poisoner
    A deatchtouch guy thatís fast enough to block in time and another threat is something I canít beat. 0-6
    7. H: Pendelhaven, Lush Growth, Thornscape Apprentice, Orochi Leafcaller
    I canít believe somebody copied this deck, haha. You have to block on turn 2, so that removes your option to tap me forever and still get attacks in. You can still tap me forever with Lush on your land, though. 2-2
    8. maxx!: Forest, Glistener Elf, Invigorate, Scale Up
    This is me : ]
    9. silkster: Swamp, Night Market Lookout, Paralyze, Blackmail
    I almost played this exact list. Elf gets hit by either Blackmail or Paralyze. 0-6
    10. FTW: Wasteland, Plains, Goldmeadow Harrier, Goldmeadow Harrier
    This is very similar to the match against H. You have to block my turn 2 attack, but I can still race you after that so you just tap me forever. 2-2
    11. Tylert: Aether vial, Ingot Chewer, Faceless butcher, Mountain
    Vial is too slow. 6-0

    0+4+6+4+2+0+2+0+2+6 = 26

    Looks like Berserk would have cost me a win against Reeplcheep and a few draws in some other matches, and I canít see any games that it wouldíve won for me, so I guess Scale Up did its thing. Shouldíve just played a normal deck instead of trying to get stylish, though.

    Standings for round 7:
    1. silkster: 48 - 4,8
    2. dte: 39 - 3,9
    2. Wrath of Pie: 39 - 3,9
    4. FTW: 30 - 3
    4. Tylert: 30 - 3
    6. Asthereal (TO): 28 - 2,8
    7. maxx!: 26 - 2,6
    8. Reeplcheep: 22 - 2,2
    9. H: 21 - 2,1
    10. alphastryk: 16 - 1,6
    11. GoblinSmashmaster: 8 - 0,8

    Which would lead to these bannings:
    Akrasan Squire
    Blackmail
    Geth's Verdict
    Isochron Scepter
    Night Market Lookout
    Paralyze
    Sacred Cat
    Wasteland

    And standings for the season look as follows:
    1. silkster: 30,2
    2. dte: 29,4
    3. FTW: 27,2
    4. maxx!: 21,5
    5. Wrath of Pie: 18,1
    6. GoblinSmashmaster: 17,6
    7. Asthereal (TO): 17,1
    8. alphastryk: 15,9
    9. Tylert: 14,8
    10. Reeplcheep: 14,7
    11. H: 14,3
    12. Karshtakavaar: 2,6

    So silk takes the lead again, with dte and FTW following close behind. This is shaping up to be a close finish!

    Re: 4 Card Blind

    ROUND 8 OF SEASON 8: PEASANT CONTINUED BANNATHON has started.

    I have PM'ed myself my deck for round 8, so you can start sending me your decks.

    DEADLINE: Wednesday the 18th of November at 11:00AM Central European Time.
    (That's my time zone. Pacific Time it'll probably be something like Tuesday night a bit past midnight, so keep that in mind.)

    PLEASE NOTE:
    The way you send your deck to me matters. Please send it in the way described below, so it doesn't cost me an hour of editing before I can post all the decks.
    Please send your deck as follows: Swamp, Swamp, Terror, Black Knight.
    So with card tags around each card, and not above eachother, and with your Username and 4CB S08R08 in the topic.
    Don't forget to keep an eye on the banned list. You'll find it in the second post of the thread, or in our Google Spreadsheet.

    After the deadline has passed, I will post all decks on the forum here, and you can start puzzling out your scores.
    If you have any questions, please read the first two posts of this thread first. If you can't find the answer there, drop a message here. We'll answer a.s.a.p.

    Also, if you've been lurking on this thread and looking to join, you can step in anytime, any round. That's no problem at all. Just send me your deck before the deadline, and I'll add you to the competition.

    Happy deck designing everybody!

    Re: 4 Card Blind

    Deadline has passed but I'm missing one of the regulars (and a newer player).
    I'm super busy at work, so I can give you 7 more hours from now.
