    I'm not completely sold on Karn but think it's worth testing...I didn't pick them up yesterday but I'm at "magic fest" tomorrow again and might get them. New teferi is a hard lock with scepter chant...wonder if a UW build is possible or if we're just miraskillz then.

    I don't know...
    Teferi is powerfull indeed but the Orim's lock is already Game-over most of the time. Plus the UW build you're thinking about already exist, it would be RiP/Helm control (which is already a weak Miracle).

    Showerthought: if we play Karn, we might want a "Manarock-package" Like Selesnya Signet and Mind Stone...

    What I mean is that we don't play that many artifacts as is.

    True, but helm of obedience beat down seems fine. Ensnaring Bridge beat down is exciting too.

    Re: [Deck] Quinn The Eskimo- Aka, The Mighty Quinn

    Yesterday I went 3-1 with this beauty:
    1 Karakas
    5 Snow-Covered Forest
    8 Snow-Covered Plains
    1 Temple Garden
    4 Scrying Sheets
    4 Windswept Heath

    4 Swords to Plowshares
    3 Enlightened Tutor
    4 Sylvan Library

    3 Orim's Chant
    1 Isochron Scepter
    2 Abeyance

    1 Oblivion Ring
    2 Ensnaring Bridge
    1 Cast Out
    2 Humility

    1 Runed Halo
    1 Choke
    1 Sterling Grove
    2 Pulse of the Fields

    4 Rest in Peace
    3 Helm of Obedience
    1 Elspeth, Knight-Errant
    1 Mobilization
    2 Ethersworn Canonist
    2 Wrath of God
    1 Sterling Grove
    4 Leyline of Sanctity
    2 Containment Priest
    1 Phyrexian Revoker
    3 Choke

    Won 2-0 VS BR Pox
    R1: He didnít do much. Tried to slow me down with a T2 Smallpox but a T4 Helm→T5 activation got him.
    R2: A have a T0 Leyline which completely nullifies his T3 Liliana and his discard spells. He destroys a few lands but Library sticks and I can take the time to ramp into Rip/Helm.
    Library is stellar in this MU since they canít remove it.

    Lost 2-0 VS Antiquities War.
    R1: I keep a bad hand but I got two bridges early which tempo for a good time. I Plow a Sai, Master Thopterist and O-ring a Karn. However my opponent got Chalices on 1 and 2. He then crack an Inventors' Fair for EE, destroy my Briges and swing for the win.
    R2: This one was quick. I have a T2 Library but what I see on top was quite terrible. I took 4 damage, passed the turn. Opponent played Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas who ultimated the turn after. Pulse doesnít do anything when you lose 16 life in one go.

    I donít think this MU is terrible but I had some poor draws and my opponent was pretty good.

    Won 2-1 VS BUG
    R1: I want a quick win and cast a T4 Helm that gets Pierced. However, Elspeth sticks (surprisingly) and does a great job.
    R2: Itís a risky keep with two Humility and one Wrath of God. Opponent shred my hand with two Thoughtseizes and then Surgical my RiPs and my Chokes. I canít do much and die by the hand of Jace.
    R3: Opponent destroy my T2 Library and Surgical it. I then play the ďdo you have it?Ē game and cast a T3 Mobilization. It sticks and completely shift the game. I play Elspeth against his Jace. He plays TNN but canít do much with it. I play Helm and RiP in the same turn when I know the coast is clear. Opponent then Jace-Brainstorm→Brainstorm→Ponder to find a decay. He doesnít find it.
    He had exactly one turn to deal with it but couldnít deal with the tokens anyway.
    Elspeth>Jace

    Won 2-1 VS Aggro Loam
    My usual bad manner opponent.
    R1: Iím quickly hiding under a Bridge. I play a RiP that get Decayed. I then play another Bridge and another RiP that sticks.
    R2: I keep a bad hand. Opponent destroys my Library with a Knight of Autumn which slowed me a lot. He has two Bob in play and casts another one. I cast a Humility. He cast a Golgari Charm and swing for 8. I donít draw anything.
    R3: This one was a slugfest. Opponent had a T2 Ooze which I poorly played around. I had a Bridge for a long time because my opponent was too busy dealing with my other enchantments. He had A LOT of answers. He P-fire me every turn but I cast Pulse all along the game. I then cast a Helm and consider I have a lot of live draws ( RiP obviously, but also Humility, Wrath of GodÖ). He killed a Library, then killed a RiP (I sweat a lot when I see that I milled a Kaya, Orzhov Usurper with the Helm trigger), then died to another RiP.

    This list feels great but we might want to change a few things for the (sadly) upcoming London Mulligan.

    The guy who won the tournament was on Stoneblade, which made me think: How do I side against this deck exactly? I feel like I want everything.

    Re: [Deck] Quinn The Eskimo- Aka, The Mighty Quinn

    Nice job! Vs SB I'd cut pulse/1 humility for choke/revoker. One leyline too I think to stop jace the skill card.

    Re: [Deck] Quinn The Eskimo- Aka, The Mighty Quinn

    Well, I agree that Humility is pretty bad in the face of all these equipments. Maybe replacing them with Wrath of God is fine.

    I would love to side-in all of the Chokes. First as counter-baits but if they sticks, they're just great. You're probably right and Pulse isn't good.
    Keeping Runed-Halo seems perfect since we can name their two best cards (TNN and Jace).

    Also, I don't think siding-in Leylines for 2 Jaces is good.

    Maybe something like this:
    +3 Chokes
    +2 Wrath of God
    +1 Revoker
    +1 Sterling Grove
    -2 Pulse
    -2 Abeyance
    -1 Isochron Scepter
    -2 Humility

    Re: [Deck] Quinn The Eskimo- Aka, The Mighty Quinn

    SB lists only run one disenchant for instant speed artifact removal right now, I checked mtgtop8.com. So I'd keep in the scepter.

    Good thing we already have our playset of Scrying Sheets.

    EDIT: they just revealed this: Abominable Treefolk. It's probably not playable but it's worth noting.
    The Snake is nice too.

    There is a new snow land which turns into a 2/3 which plays nicely with humility.

    That it does. It also gives our opponents more wasteland targets so our sheets have a chance of sticking around. Do we want 4 is the question

    Re: [Deck] Quinn The Eskimo- Aka, The Mighty Quinn

    Lot of things for us in this set!
    We probably won't play Ice-Skin Golem and I don't think Dead of Winter is worth splashing for, but Arcum's Astrolabe and On Thin Ice are actually interesting.

    EDIT: I completely overlooked it, but if you up our land count a bit, this could be playable: Glacial Revelation
