    February 2017 Update

    Grumble grumble grumble Eldrazi grumble grumble. Ok look, the Tax man is back, the Eldrazi are the least of our issues.




    We are back in some kind of stride. Another solid month and a good showing for the format. 2654 for last month alone, no carry over with a cut off at 122. This leaves me with no choice but to enact emergency measures and drop the cut to 74 for no personal biased reason whatsoever...
    Anyway, we have a cut to top 6 this month, the list includes

    • Death and Taxes
    • Miracles
    • Bug Control (Both Leo and Shardless)
    • Sneak Attack
    • Team America (BUG Delver)
    • Eldrazi


    Goodnight Grixis, we barely knew thee, hello Death and Taxes, I would rather not know thee... Oh and BUG is here to stay. Lets hope the Eldrazi find some bug spray next to that cup they keep sharing around the place.

    March 2017 Update

    So, besides the Lord deciding my state needed to be underwater and then me being stuck on a mobile because the infrastructure all went to shit, I am still alive and tonight I am not limited to a mobile. Woot I can update shit.




    I am liking this thing we have going on here Legacy. You keep turning out months of decent data AND I got to watch a Painter Deck on SCG this month. Let's keep this going girl. I promise that thing with Vintage and I, it's just a fling.

    Anyhow. 2136 total, topping at 98 points. This means we have a pool of five decks with Infect just missing the cut for sixth place. Still its not bad. Feels like we are on a roll again.
    • Miracles
    • Death and Taxes
    • Sneak Attack
    • Eldrazi
    • ANT
    • Infect


    BUG falls from grace and we get ANT in to replace her. I should make a joke here about a bugs life or something, but its too cheap a shot to take. Plus Antz was the better movie.

    Edit:
    I missed the Infect section separate from Stompy. Infect makes the grade, we have 6 decks.

    Re: DTBF Philosophy & Deck Selection

    April 2017 Update

    A cord swiftly pulled
    A destiny to brave
    To find in the future
    The power we crave

    To see one's own fate
    Held in an object often spun
    A gift some adored
    But not equally by everyone

    Its demise for many
    A dream, a miracle
    But the others cried no
    Yet the data, empirical
    She stood tall and proud
    Above all that would test
    There became only two;
    Top dog, and the rest

    A sign from the masses
    "Please make it to stop"
    Now the metal sits rested
    That once mighty Top

    For her long lasting Legacy
    Shall be sung into lore
    But now this eternal mistress
    She will spin for us no more



    This is the final month that Legacy had Top legal. So that means this month's data still includes Miracles. 294 points worth. Another first place, one final crown.

    The total for the month was 2634, topping at 5 decks with a cut off at 121. This means our round up would be for this month the following:

    • Miracles
    • Death and Taxes
    • Eldrazi
    • Sneak Attack
    • Grixis Tempo


    But just this one time, since we are removing from the DTB section Miracles I am going to remove the 294 points she held and recalculate. When I do that we end up with 2340 with a cutoff of 108. That means in this most odd of situations we have:

    • Death and Taxes
    • Eldrazi
    • Sneak Attack
    • Grixis Tempo
    • Food Chain
    • Infect


    No matter how you may feel about this banning or this change, Legacy will carry on. We have been here before when Survival took a hit and we made it past that. For those of you who feel lost and unsure of what you should do next, the thread is not closed, it sits in the New and Developmental Decks section of this site. As does many other ideas, new and old, that many are seeking to try. Take your moment to grieve and then turn your eyes on tomorrow. Take those years of honing your skills with control and direct it into something fresh. It was not overnight that Miracles was built and it will not be overnight something new is found.

    May 2017 Update

    A whole new world
    A new fantastic point of view
    No one to tell us no... Oh wait, DNT, Lands and Blade. Never mind. Control is still a thing.




    Welcome to the brave new world of Legacy. We never again will have to worry about Terminus, about Entreat or about getting Predicted... Oh shit, I just saw the online meta...

    The total for the month was 2825, so we have a cut to top 8 this month. Nice.

    • Grixis Tempo
    • ANT
    • Death and Taxes
    • UR Burn (UR Delver)
    • Elves!
    • Sneak Attack
    • LANDS!
    • Blade Control


    Well, that's quite the change. Looks like something big must have happened of late to turn the format on it's head. We lost Miracles!, Infect, Eldrazi and Food Chain. We get in return ANT, Delver, Elves!, Lands (Oorah) and Blade Control. BUG just missed the cut. All in all a good month.

    June 2017 Update

    So, um, that was unexpected.




    Well, who could have predicted this? I find it quite hard to explain how this bloody deck won't just rest in peace. Take out top, the dam thing just snaps back after a short time to brainstorm and unexpectedly, a short flusterstorm of activity later and we are all back to basics. Ok I will stop now.

    3004 is the total, 138 is the cut. At that point we have 5 decks.
    • Grixis Tempo
    • Sneak Attack
    • UR Burn (UR Delver)
    • ANT
    • Miracle Control

    And that was short lived. Miracles is um... Back? Shit. Lands, Blade and Elves is gone, Grixis is king by far. The more things change...

    July 2017 Update

    Well, say what you will about Grixis, it knew where to find the BUG spray.




    After the banning of top the prediction was that BUG would take over the format, that Decay would ramp up and DRS would take over the place. Meatloaf got at least two out of three, we cant even match that loafy goal.

    3 is the total, 148 is the cut. This leaves us with 6 decks, one of them Lands! Makes me happy, and I am not biased at all.
    • Grixis Tempo
    • Death and Taxes
    • Blade Control
    • Lands!
    • Czech Pile (T/C 4c Control)
    • Sneak Attack


    Wow thats a shake up. ANT, Delver and Miracles all leave and in their place we get the whole middle of the pack. I have not seen such a shakeup in a long time. Other than one top deck, the meta seems to be shifting around a lot, still looking for it's footing.

    August 2017 Update

    To those of you dealing with the weather in the top half of the planet, I hope you, your families and your cards are alright.




    We lose Lands and keep SnT? Wow, this month really was harsh.

    Total points for the month is 2014, cutting us off just under 93 points for a top slot. We find ourselves dropping to 5 but I will not complain at any point I get to move Elves into the DTB.

    • Grixis Tempo
    • Czech Pile (T/C 4c Control)
    • Sneak Attack
    • Elves!
    • Death and Taxes




    Out goes Blade (didn't miss by much) and Lands. In goes the green menace. Enjoy your DnT flavored meal boys.

    If you have not seen Blade Runner yet you are a terrible person. Well, maybe not that bad, but you really should.





    One down and one up.

    A big month, 2607 points in total. One of the larger we have seen in a while. The cut is at 120, leaving us with 5 decks. 3 others only just missing the cut by only 10 or so points. Quite a tight DTB this month.

    • Czech Pile (T/C 4c Control)
    • Grixis Tempo
    • Death and Taxes
    • ANT
    • Elves!


    So the SnT boys drop and we get the ANT nest back. Does anyone know where I left the Raid ant bait? Asking for a Lands sideboard.

    October 2017 Update


    All hail October, the 8th month of the year... I hate the calendar.





    I love wide open fields.

    3058 points for the month. A great showing. Sadly though with a cut of 141 we end up with only 4 decks.

    • Grixis Tempo
    • Eldrazi Stompy
    • Czech Pile (T/C 4c Control)
    • Death and Taxes


    We have found ourselves once again all Touched by His Noodly Appendage as the Eldrazi return. ANT, Elves and my wish to see Leo around anymore have all dropped out of sight.
