    Yeah, there may be a reason why Chalice is seeing close to zero play here. Field of Ruin is probably just be the supperior disruption

    Yeah, I felt like trying it, with the full expectation that it wouldn't be great. And it wasn't. I felt like it was a toss up between my payoff being Rackling and TKS. I thought maybe there would be more Bridges and the like, but it didn't pan out.

    T2: Suspend Rift Bolt
    T3: Tap Overseer (O=3/3, R=4/3)
    T3: Rift Bolt resolves.

    I think you could maybe have gone for Dismember.
    Regular Bolt runs into both Chalice and Sphere, but Dismember at least dodges Chalice.
    Or you could have gone über meta and try Lava Dart. Perhaps a tad too meta though.
    Ahh yes, you are right it does. I would have gone with dismember. I should have thought about it since I have it written down in my 4cb file with other possibilities. Plight of submitting last minute.

    Really sad you didn't go Lava Dart though. Bad, but super techy against some cards.

    Ratchet Bomb would have done even better (manlands are not a threat with Magus).

    My backup choice for this round was a City, SSG Magus deck but I wasn't smart enough to consider Ratchet Bomb as the other piece.

    Generally, Ratchet Bomb would have been interesting, yes. For instance instead of Chalice in spirit's and H's deck.
    But apple713 can't cast it after dropping Magus of the Moon.

    Lava Dart would have helped murder Steel Overseer AND Phyrexian Revoker OTP in the match against Wrath.
    Also against the Plains, 3x small white dude deck it would have been super helpful.

    Ratchet Bomb would have done the same, and also killed Griffin and Chronomaton and 1/1 tokens...basically everything he couldn't beat.

    However I forgot he doesn't have the mana for it. He could cast it before Magus, which is limiting in many matchups, but probably would have been OK in the matches he didn't already WW.

    4. Whoshim: Plains, Mother of Runes, Student of Warfare, Gideon's Lawkeeper


    1. Asthereal (TO): Sandstone Needle, City of Traitors, Boldwyr Heavyweights, Aftershock 0-6

    2. Wrath of Pie: Field of Ruin, Phyrexian Revoker, Steel Overseer, Ancient Tomb I believe that you can race me even when I am on the play if you name Lawkeeper. Your Revoker will grow too big too fast for my Student. 0-6

    3. CptHaddock: Form of the Dragon, Dwarven Hold, Maze of Ith, Pithing Needle 0-6

    5. spirit of the wretch: Ancient Tomb, City of Traitors, Chalice of the Void, Eater of Days 1-4

    6. JackaBo: Bayou, Elves of Deep Shadow, Smallpox, Emrakul, the Aeons Torn OTP, you win. OTD, I can use Lawkeeper to keep you off of Smallpox, so we draw. 1-4

    7. Ace/Homebrew: Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Radiant Fountain, Smallpox, Emrakul, the Aeons Torn 0-6

    8. FTW: Force of Will, Misthollow Griffin, Saprazzan Cove, Web of Inertia 2-2

    9. Strawberry Dwarf: Chancellor of the Forge, Chancellor of the Forge, Blazing Shoal, Blazing Shoal You can get in for a ton of damage initially, but then you cannot get past my 3 1/1s that will hit the table. 6-0

    10. Tylert: City of traitors, Field of ruin, Phyrexian revoker, Chronomaton 4-1 Tentative

    11. H: Chalice of the Void, Rackling, Ancient Tomb, City of Traitors 3-3

    12. apple713: Magus of the Moon, Rift Bolt, Simian Spirit Guide, City of Traitors 6-0


    23 points, though I think Tylert has to have some better line than what he posted. It is late here, so I will think about it more tomorrow. I made the wrong meta-call, running Mom into a bunch of artifacts.

    There's always next week though...

    I, indeed, found a better line (or i was wrong in my first evaluation):

    OTP: T1: I play field / chronomaton. you play student.
    T2: I play city, revoker on lawkeeper (because mother is useless) Chrono is 2/2. student has 1 counter
    T3: Chrono is 3/3. you pump student to 3/3 (2 counters) and attack (17)
    T4: Chrono is 4/4, I attack with revoker (18). You pump student (3 counters)
    T5: Chrono is 5/5. You pump student (4 counters)
    T6: Chrono is 6/6. You pump student (5 counters)
    T7: Chrono is 7/7. you pump student (6 counters)
    T8: Chrono is 8/8. you pump student (7 counters) and attack (9)
    T9: chrono is 9/9 i attack with revoker (16), you play mother
    T10: Chrono is 10/10, you play lawkeeper.
    We do it until turn 17 where i have a 16/16 chronomaton in play and a revoker vs your 4/4 double strike student and 2 1/1. You are at 16 so you have to block. I'm at 9.

    If i attack with chrono, you chumpblock with mother. then if you attack with student i take 8 go to 1 (you can't attack with law keeper because you'd die in return). if i attack again you chump wiht lawkeeper, and i chump with revoker and win.

    OTD: Same scenario except that, student should be able to attack one turn before and i'd be at 1 and you'd kill by attacking with 3 threats or i block student we both die, and i die to your 2 threats that can kill mine by keeping one in defence and attacking with the other one.

    So 3-3 instead of 1-4.
    Death and taxes!!

    Ratchet bomb was a serious contender, especially since I played it last round but I knew that I wouldn't be able to cast it through a sphere of resistance. It would have been better against all those white 1 CMC creatures though. I guess in the future the choice comes down to whether sphere of resistance will be more highly represented than other choices.

    I wasent ever really considering chalice of the void as a threat since it has made almost no appearances in the 4 other rounds. Maybe lava dart would have been better but it sucks if there is an x/2.
