    Sticky: Poll: Re: All B/R update speculation.

    On power creep, it's generally fine. Going back to MH1 you really only are dealing with Wrenn, Oko, Zirda, Echo [common endpoint for two bad actors: LED and Tomb], Breach, and Ragavan as cards that...

    Sticky: Poll: Re: All B/R update speculation.

    You cannot ban power creep, nor can you ban a design space. Once the pattern is there, the pattern will repeat over and over. We have seen this with SDT into Astrolabe, Wrenn into Oko, DRS into...

    Sticky: Poll: Re: All B/R update speculation.

    @Noctalor this is a well-established problem with Daze; undercosted cards can only be allowed a certain power level beyond which Daze becomes bullcrap. The power creep going on is only going to...

    Mmmm no. You're skipping ahead here; if Daze is banned, Wasteland has a much higher cost to activate. The safer you make duals, the faster the format devolves into 4c soup.

    Sticky: Poll: Re: All B/R update speculation.

    Wasteland is an incredibly important control on the format becoming 5c soup. Without Wasteland you turn into standard and get turned into "Omnath needs to be banned" nonsense.

    Wasteland is...

    Doubt wizards has the foresight to ban this card, and will continue to print 1-2cmc mistakes which heavily exploit Daze's abuse potential.
    So while Daze is the correct ban [first player advantage...

    Re: [SCD] Thran Turbine

    There is a lot of variance you need to draw past if you're running do-nothings like Turbine. Even though cycling is consistency-positive, this is pretty reliant on A [Turbine] then B [cycling]....

    Re: [Deck] UW(x) Landstill

    Went 2-1 tonight. Narrowly lost to Burn in game 3, and won vs DnT and Food Chain Muxus. Event had 8 decks, others included Esper Mentor and BUG Stiflenought; unsure what last 2 decks were.

    Re: [Deck] UW(x) Landstill

    Played some UBw Landstill recently, the deck has been fun. Began with a bye today but ended up 3-0 beating UR Delver and Esper Vial. Same list as previous UBw except Drown #3 and 4 slots went from...

  11. Re: Innistrad Midnight Hunt: Wolf's is back baby. Its good again. Awoouu! (werewolf H

    Mayhaps you've heard of this card called Prismatic Ending which both exiles PWs and does not give that PWs controller a clue token.
  12. Re: Innistrad Midnight Hunt: Wolf's is back baby. Its good again. Awoouu! (werewolf H

    Merely having a 12/12 body on board for an instant is useful. It's not hard to translate it into 12 cards or 12 life or 12 damage or act as Show and Tell [Mosswort Bridge]; these things are however...

    Sticky: Poll: Re: All B/R update speculation.

    Modern does not have Daze, so it is not possible for them to parasitize and inflame first player advantage.
  14. Re: Innistrad Midnight Hunt: Wolf's is back baby. Its good again. Awoouu! (werewolf H

    Bringing this back on topic, the point remains that this creature is quite playable as it has everything required of a card to troll the card Delver as its floor. It remains one of the most important...
  15. Re: Innistrad Midnight Hunt: Wolf's is back baby. Its good again. Awoouu! (werewolf H

    This blatant token buff was made with Commander 2017.
  16. Re: Innistrad Midnight Hunt: Wolf's is back baby. Its good again. Awoouu! (werewolf H

    That is correct on Stasis, though Equipoise [and Karn wish Sands of Time] will generally result in a cleaner deck.

    The key to beating Delver is dictating when and how they trade. Where most legacy...
  17. Re: Innistrad Midnight Hunt: Wolf's is back baby. Its good again. Awoouu! (werewolf H

    B/c it has flash you can wait for your opponent's turn wherein they lose their untap step. At any point after this you can phase out your own Stasis, such that you will begin your turn in an...
  18. Re: Innistrad Midnight Hunt: Wolf's is back baby. Its good again. Awoouu! (werewolf H

    Dreadnought disagrees. That's a 2 mana play that forces a Delver user to discard a card or discard their Delver; reasonable floor. We won't actually play this, but the card is above average.

    Edit:...
  19. Re: Innistrad Midnight Hunt: Wolf's is back baby. Its good again. Awoouu! (werewolf H

    Like at least they realized a 2/3 stat line for 2 mana with deathtouch and late game shenanigans ruins the limited experience and made it mythic.

    Re: [Deck] Dreadstill - Enter the Fist

    3-0 in paper with wins over BW Dead Guy Ale, 80 card DnT, and mono-R Painter. Other decks in the room were 4c Uro midrange, RG Lands, and I forget the last two.

    Against DnT, since we were...
  21. Re: Innistrad Midnight Hunt: Wolf's is back baby. Its good again. Awoouu! (werewolf H

    Oh it's exactly what they're trying to recapture. Otherwise this is just an under-stat'd, over-costed vanilla beater. Just another in a long line of loses to Goyf, Uro, Strix-type, Decay, etc & also...
  22. Re: Innistrad Midnight Hunt: Wolf's is back baby. Its good again. Awoouu! (werewolf H

    It is the DRS yard police-lookalike effect they are heavily relying on to justify an unplayably overcosted card, yes. Put you hand over the DRS-looking text - is the card playable at all.
  23. Re: Innistrad Midnight Hunt: Wolf's is back baby. Its good again. Awoouu! (werewolf H

    You were comparing 3 mana DRS-werewolf to Deathgorge Scavenger, when saying Smasher vs Qbest right?

    On Lavamancer, this only works when they remake it in Time Spiral 4 where it's the same card,...
  24. Re: Innistrad Midnight Hunt: Wolf's is back baby. Its good again. Awoouu! (werewolf H

    This card is actually close to being maindeckable lifegain in UW strategies. The loss of hand size ofc kills it when combined with the fact that the best card to discard would be Uro (meaning you...
  25. Re: Innistrad Midnight Hunt: Wolf's is back baby. Its good again. Awoouu! (werewolf H

    I mean we've seen the a number of almost-DRS on police mode cards printed. The simple fact is this: the police mode never makes the cut when it costs 3x as much as DRS. It's pretty annoying that at...
