    My preference is going to Vryn Wingmare for maximal taxing and the fact that it has flying.
    Thalia 2.0 is great for aditional taxing, miracles , eldrazi and is a decent body
    Spirit of the labirinth i great vs combo but i dont like it with that many young pyromancers.
    Salai i havent tested at all, but 4 mana seems to much in D&T

    Current build i will run is:

    2 Cavern of Souls
    1 Horizon Canopy
    3 Karakas
    9 Plains
    4 Rishadan Port
    4 Wasteland

    4 Mother of Runes
    4 Stoneforge Mystic
    4 Thalia, Guardian of Thraben
    4 Flickerwisp
    2 Serra Avenger
    2 Recruiter of the Guard
    2 Mirran Crusader
    2 Phyrexian Revoker
    1 Sanctum Prelate
    1 --------------

    4 Swords to Plowshares
    4 Aether Vial
    1 Batterskull
    1 Sword of Fire and Ice
    1 Umezawa's Jitte


    2 Ethersworn Canonist
    2 Rest in Peace
    2 surgcal extraction
    1 Containment priest
    2 Council's Judgment
    1 Path to exile

    Brightling seems worthy of testing. It's a great manasink, protects itself, can gain lifelink and/or vigilance to increase its utility. It will probably fight other beaters like Avenger and Crusader for space. It's one of those cards I'll need to play with to be sure though, it might end up being clunky in actual games despite looking great on paper.

    I think the fact that it can protect from bolt makes it worthy. The bounce can even get around a lot of other removal spells you'd find in Miracles/Czech Pile.

    "Xlings" Have typically been good control finishers. I'm super stoked for this card.

    DnT has lots of good control finishers. It does not have very many that are also good against burn. This card is pretty pushed and I would probably try 3 of these in a shell without SfMs, similar to the lists Bahra was testing. Incidental lifelink often ends up being very strong. This is good against basically everything that isn't combo + not even terrible against combo as a 5/1 + our equipment just isn't what it used to be in the age of Kolaghan's Command.

    The biggest downside is obviously that it's not a human / is strongly de-synergistic with Cavern.

    I don't seem to have a problem with K command.

    Czech pile overall is a ball buster. I have a problem with board wipes.

    Neither is Serra Avenger, yet it's playable.

    TNN might be it's main problem as it can chump block it for days.

    Re: [DTB] Death and Taxes

    I've wanted a non-equipment, maindeckable source of lifegain for ages. Most of the other options are...sad.

    If anyone has time to start testing this *now,* please let me know the results. SCG Con has a Legacy event the day after this becomes legal, so...

    It's good, I tested it all day on MTGO.

    Re: [DTB] Death and Taxes

    Brightling could be more worth then a Breitling for WW DnT.

    Looks sweet but not even close to beeing as good as SfM imo. You just need equipment in so many match ups. Sure K Command and other artifact removal are a nightmare but until we're not getting an adequate 2 drop for SfM and I cant even imagine how something like that would look like, I'm super happy with running the Stoneforge package.

    Brightling might replace other cards like the one flexslot which until now is filled of Wingmare,Shalai, Jailer, Brimaz and so on...

    I realy hope this card will have impact on the DnT archetype!

    Re: [DTB] Death and Taxes

    I wish the abilities were not all defensive on Brightling. I quite like the unsummon though. Sweepers are WAY less effective. A goal would be to read about players complaining about this issue in in the Czech thread six months from now if this card catches on.

    It's a long term goal, but one worth the effort. This is kinda long-winded, but here is the deal: When the deck was young, Solidarity and IGGy Pop were the combo decks of the day. Both matchups were pretty rotten. True Believer off a vial was our version of a gameplan. Anyway, I prayed every night to the Magic gods for a Glowrider for two and eventually got one. Since then we also got Canonist, et al. So combo is now do-able to large degree. The other big obstacle to a deck that relies upon creatures is the more terrestrial issue of sweepers. Even Gaddock Teeg can't be counted on any more. I have been hoping we could find a way to make them less effective for a good while now. This guy is the most likely candidate since Thalia 2.0.
