    Re: Conspiracy Unraveler Reanimator

    I'm missing the appeal too. The limiting resource is usually cards, not mana. Conspiracy Unraveler gives extra mana ("free spells") instead of extra cards.

    You usually want Atraxa or Griselbrand...

    Re: [Primer] Nic Fit

    Good points. I see you went down to 1 Veteran to really minimize dead topdecks.

    I was curious if the ramp plan is still viable if you don't go overboard, the motivation for my build: 4 Veteran 2...

    Re: [Primer] Nic Fit

    You could. That would lead to a more combo-y build, because you only get 1 play at 5 mana instead of 5 basics in play. It'd be sad to Culling the Weak into a big creature just to eat Daze/FoW/StP,...

    Getting the green creature is easy. I experimented with Ignoble Hierarch too (bad in a Bowmasters meta). There's also GSZ for Dryad arbor, etc.

    Re: [Primer] Six Shades of Dressnought aka Vaka-Nought

    Looks good. Nice results. I'm a big fan of the UW version.

    Could those Tameshis just be Murktides? 3 Murktide seems good if you're not on Uro. Or Curie.

    Re: [Primer] Nic Fit

    It's very strong, but it also requires a 2 card combo in the opening hand (A+B), so it won't happen that often.

    You can boost the chances a bit. Once Upon A Time helps with turn 1 Veteran. Green...

    I like Reeplcheep's idea.

    Is there a way to build in sufficient card advantage creatures and interaction to avoid the topdeck issues?

    Curie still seems better because
    - it's a proactive turn 2 play that forces opponent to leave a blocker or hold removal
    - it works standalone as an Ophidian, doesn't need combo pieces to be...

    Re: [Primer] Six Shades of Dressnought aka Vaka-Nought

    Unless they're changing the rules it would seem to. Older cards like Lazav, the Multifarious say the copy retains the Legendary supertype.

    So you could have one Curie out and one Curie-Nought,...

    Delney's double trigger works really well with Recruiter of the Guard or Militia Bugler, which are both Humans.

    Can exile Dreadnought in response to sacrifice trigger (from cast or Saga), seems good.

    Still seems good to protect with Legolas vs Costume. Or Fow/Daze.

    The sub 10% chance for 5 lands must be based on decks with 8 Ponder and not decks with 43 lands

    Re: [Primer] Six Shades of Dressnought aka Vaka-Nought

    That looks even better cutting green and just running Murktide as a finisher instead of Uro. More stable mana. Daze + Wasteland mana denial plan makes more sense with many threats on 2 mana.
