    Which by itself doesn't mean shit. The deck has no reach, Daze prevents you from casting Oko on curve, no Astrolabes to elk, no Pyromancer to go wide, Abrupt Decay is dead about one third of the...

    It should be noted that when the average player goes to a university/job from 9 to 5 the platinum pros are mashing games during that time and going through all the Standars piles that build...

    Re: [DTB] Turbo Depths

    If you present the combo on board, they can't tap out for Jace for obvious reasons. You can delay Jace's landing to turn 5-6 by just letting the combo sit in play while you try to dig for insurance...

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

    Why wouldn't you stack every creature in your deck on top of your lands just in case the game turns to a slog? The only way to shuffle the deck is Matron but you'd rather chain all your Ringleaders...

    Re: [DTB] Death and Taxes

    Eldrazi, SNT and Death's Shadow from DTB are good matchups? Storm as always is a cointoss.

    Re: [DTB] Turbo Depths

    This. They also get better in multiples since it's unlikely to draw more than one in a relatively short game without card selection so it's rational for your opponent to not play around extras.

    Re: [DTB] Death and Taxes

    Against Miracles I could see it doing work *if* you can get a Chalice or Prelate on 1 to stick. Grixis doesn't really need to tap out after turn 2 and this dies pretty much to everything, even if...

    Re: [DTB] Turbo Depths

    Yeah you might be right, the original idea was a way to "try again" against the other Loam decks after the game drags on if you can't find a Rite of Consumption. Might try out Choke at weeklies.

    Eh, depends. It can die to Abrade/Pyroclasm and does nothing vs Grixis.

    I haven't really cared about Daze personally since the DRS ban. I get the upsides but I think Trophy just gives you unreal percentages where none existed before and I don't like the idea of cutting...

    Yeah actually after thinking about it I think it's finally time for Lotus Petal to go for something like 7 discard+3-4 trophy main. I never liked the card and going off turn 2 is possible even...

    O-Ring is mostly for being a better Judgment vs Skill and Tell and it also has potential for value vs Grixis with Flickerwisp, since they most likely board out some or all Forces and can only remove...

    It's very likely that I'm still just in the "wtf they actually printed this omg"-phase. Without DRS around you can more likely keep your opponent off their mana for K-command whereas Ass Trophy just...
