    Re: The Ultimate Legacy Checklist

    Awesome list
    I am curious how subjective the list is, and if you used data from tournaments. Anyway, very good job!

    Here are some random comments (decks = Tier 1 - Tier 2 decks):
    Which decks play Fiend Hunter, Spectral Lynx, Serum Visions or Boartusk Liege
    Which decks need >4 Armageddon, and why 4 Ravages of War;
    There are decks featuring on Past in Flames (3 or 4 copies), and/or more Tendrils of Agony;
    Some combo decks want 8 Chants (4 Silence);
    Manaless Dredge has Phantasmagorian, Nether Shadow;
    MUD can play up to 4 Wurmcoil Engine, and you missed Lightning Greaves and Spellskite;
    Elves can play up to 4 Gaea's Cradle and Quirion Ranger;
    Solidarity plays Opt, Peek, Impulse, Peer through Depths, Flash of Insight, and High Tide decks have Snap;
    Affinity has Signal Pest and Etched Champion

    It used to be a Dread Return target (usually in Dredge SB), but were outclassed by Elesh Norn.

    It was considered a good sb card in dredge, against burn, competed with Sadistic Hypnotist against Storm.

    4 Phyrexian Dreadnought *check*
    4 Vision Charm *what the... *

    You might want to add Vision Charms in there. I mean you have Wonder and Anger there even though Sotf isn't because obviously it's banned.

    Also, please add in Multi 2 of this:

    Very helpful! Favorited that too, thanks!

    But I don't get the logic behind staples. For example, how come Bridge from Below is a staple and Dread Return is not? Are there dredge decks without Dredge Return?

    This is a great addendum to an already good list ^^
    If you fail to explain the reason behind your choice, technically, it's the wrong choice.

    Re: The Ultimate Legacy Checklist

    I'll do an update later today with all the feedback I've gotten.

    Boartusk Liege is one of the best cards for the Goblins mirror and against stuff like Engineered Plague. I always play 1 copy in my sideboard and I've seen it around regularly. Stephen actually had 2 in his list I believe.

    Etched Champion is definitely going in. This I just missed straight up ha ha.

    I will also upgrade Wurmcoil, Past in Flames, etc. I'm simply not that familiar with Meandeck MUD. I'll do my homework on it :)

    As for Geist, I had 2 copies on my list initially but I figured I was high on something.... looks like I'm not alone so I'll put him back :)

    Thanks for the feedback :)

    Decent list.

    I would fix the tag on Platinum Emperion and move Tangle Wire from lands to the colorless section.

    Re: The Ultimate Legacy Checklist

    I used to use Spectral Lynx a long time ago in Death and Taxes and occasionally some other odd choices against Thresh, but I haven't had a use for him in a long time. He was best for the Mongoose and Goyf.

    How about a spreadsheet (.xls) format?

    Re: The Ultimate Legacy Checklist

    Update should come this week-end. I've been incredibly busy lately. I will also add an Excel spreadsheet for those interested.

    Wow 150 cards out of 12,000. Just goes to show that 99% of Magic cards really are worthless.

    It is nice to see the list, although a lot of those cards do seem only be played in a single deck. Thanks for the work you put in. I shall have a check through it later.


    You have "Glimmervoid" in the Artifact section by the way. Why a single "Day of Judgement"? I can not see why you would play that when "Wrath of God" is so much better.

    Maybe Thrun or other regeneration stuff is the answer? Or if someone wants to play 2/2 or even 2/3 split against Therapy, Meddling Mage etc.
