Thread: Curse Stompy! (Meme Deck, or, maybe not...)

  1. #41

    Re: Curse Stompy! (Meme Deck, or, maybe not...)

    Played in today's challenge. Got extremely lucky with MUs in the swiss to dodge fair blue, only unfair decks & fair non-blue so I placed 5th out of 63. In quarterfinals I faced depths, which as you can see above I decided in deckbuilding was a mu to just hope to dodge. Lost 1-2. Very happy with results, hopefully this will make people consider this a real stompy alternative to titan or moon stompy in unfair metas.

    Could post a more detailed report if their is interest

    Great results!

    Don't know what you could do about Depths other than maybe To the Slaughter SB?

    Tournament report for 8th in the 07/25/2020 MTGO Legacy Challenge.
    This list is not that different from prior mono-b lists; except M21 gave us eliminate which is an perfect addition for this deck. Having a card that answers delver, teeg, goyf, kotr, 3feri, & oko cleanly is huge for a stompy deck, without having to cut chalices for pyroblasts like moon stompy. Liked it so much (and rug being everywhere) meant I went up to 4. That was not enough in some leagues so I added on 2 murderous riders. Goal for this tournament was to top 32 so that I could garner more interest in the deck and make people see it as a legitimate alternative to titan/urza/moon stompy for certain metas.

    R1: ttetera on burn
    G1 OTD. They t1 swiftspear, my t1 chalice is essentially gg. Eventually I draw rider to clean up the swiftspear and shut the door with lifelink. W on T6
    G2. Donít remember much, I think they just had a super fast hand with an answer to chalice. L on T5
    G3. Had t2 curse of fools wisdom with any mana source, but wiffed and had to t2 curse of misfortunes. Locking out their creatures was not good enough, should have mulled to t1 chalice/3ball (which this deck does very well). L on t4

    R2: Mikebrav on yorion D&T
    G1: OTD had a fast karn but couldnít control the board. A few turns into the game I had opportunity to hard cast cruel reality, but instead took the more conservative bridge + murderous rider creature side. They manage to get enough mana denial so I was never able to cast my curses without drawing lands, and only drew more curses. L t10
    G2. They have no answer to t2 curse of misfortunes OTP. Playing sol lands and dark ritual in the same deck is an insane amount of fast mana that makes the 5 mana cost less unplayable than it looks. W t4

    G3. t2 karn -> helm t3 helm kill gg W t3
    R3: ark4n on dredge. https://www.twitch.tv/videos/690190040?t=3h48m27s
    G1 OTD: I am a subscriber to his twitch, so I know from watching earlier he is on dredge. Mull to leyline. W T0
    G2 keep a 6 w/leyline. He removes it on my t1 and then just casts the blue looting spell but does not crack his LED to go all in. then he concede to t2 karn -> crypt. W T2

    R4: Kanican on Urza Echo (with stone coil serpent?)
    G1: OTP Had a t2 helm kill with a black source, never drew it but when I drew sol land just played karn which they concede to. W t3
    G2: Answer their t1 urza with t1 rit -> rider, but the token & follow up (a stonecoil serpent then karn) kill me. L t4
    G3: T1 karn gg W T2

    R5: flowrallia on hogaak.
    G1 OTD. Between his t1 supplier, several hard cast ghasts, and fetches/casting his 1 drops in hands he is able to feed gy enough to cast hogaak twice. I answer with both riders but that leaves me far enough behind for him to kill he with a topdeck vengevine. L t8
    G2: Leyline into cruel reality is essentially gg, but because of the bug donít kill him actually until t11 with helm. W t11
    G3. Leyline into 3 ball into curse of misfortunes is essentially gg (he was stuck on 2 lands for ever and splendor stops fetches), but foolís wisdom is exiled and cruel reality is bugged so he doesnít actually concede until I lattice him on turn 17. W T17.

    R6: basuta on dredge. (was his last played deck on mtggoldfish)
    G1 OTP: t0 leyline gg. He drags it out to see what I am doing before he has to discard to hand size. W T4.
    G2. T0 leyline, he cabalís for chalice and wiffs, I t1 helm kill him (sol land + chome mox + drit + black card + helm)
    5-1 gets me 5th out of 63 in the swiss.

    Quarters Terano on depths (nightmare mu since we are a slow deck that canít interact with lands & it doesnít care about our hate pieces).
    G1. Mulled a hand full of 3 balls into a fast curse hand. T1 eliminate his reclaimer into fast curse of misfortunes W T4
    G2. He strips my hand with discard and my eliminates look very sad rotting in my hand. Definitely a mu I would love to the slaughter but they are so much worse vs rug and other creature decks. L T5.
    G3. Have a t2 karn with a back up karn to play around discard. He discards the first one, hexmages the second and then discards the rest of my payoffs as I draw them.
    Loss gets me 8th.

    Overall I won the MU lottery playing against lots of unfair decks and dodging fair blue. RUG MU has improved considerably since I added 6 reasonable oko answers to the maindeck, and it is good to see that I am still trashing non-depths non-blue decks with the changes. Hopefully this provides some encouragement that the deck is not just a meme and is a reasonable t2 stompy deck.

    This is the disadvantage of streaming. Dredge very badly needs to win game 1, and has 0% chance of doing that against maindeck Leyline + London Mulligan when you know they're on Dredge.

    You must get a lot of free wins by just knowing when frequent players are on graveyard-dependent decks. BR Reanimator and Hogaak look like free wins too. That's a great advantage black Stompy has over Red and colorless versions. Fast wins from Helm are no joke either.

    I noticed you cut 1 Plague Engineer for 1 Dreamstealker. When do you bring that in? How has it been?

    Md leyline also really helps vs tribal/fair non-blue since it gives you more sideboard slots. Unlike moon stompy, where the karn package + 4 leyline takes up your entire sideboard, i have enough slots to totally sideout 3ball & trinisphere when they are bad.

    Dreamstealer was not in the 4th plague engineer slot. It replaced the anti combo discard card (collective brutality/lost legacy/necromentia etc) since it is still ok there but is much better against a snoko player sitting on a pile of fows & fon (they have to fow it, and you can't fow the enternalize). Liliana replaced the 4th plague engineer since it is still ok vs tribal/fair non-blue but is much better vs snoko. I have been liking the changes except one game against infect (liliana couldn't answer inkmoth nexus). Essentially the tweaks were to make my blue midrange/control mu's better while still being acceptable for the mu's they were intended for (combo & aggro respectively)

    Dreamstealer seems a nice tech =) the eternalize part is cool
