    Cool ideas.

    // 22 Artifact
    4 Grim Monolith
    4 Lotus Petal
    3 Lion's Eye Diamond
    4 Mox Opal

    @Munitions Expert:
    I find myself losing to Jace TMS quite often. Having access to Munitions Expert increases the odds of immediately dealing with Jace before you get buried under card advtange. I...

    This was great! Vial Goblins seems competitive again with the bannings and new printings and you guys seemed so happy about it!

    Llawan works great vs Aluren as well with Baleful Strix, Coiling Oracle, Shardless Agent and Parasitic Strix. Nice find, I like it!

    Poll: Re: No one should be happy about Top.

    I rejoice this ban.

    It was clear that Miracles is the best deck in the format. I felt almost forced into playing the deck, even though I strongly dislike it, or quitting the format. It really...

    Re: [Deck] Vial Goblins

    That are some very good points.

    - Going up to 3 Thalia seems very reasonable. I may take your advice on that one.

    - I understand your hesitance towards Mogg Fanatic. It is an underwhelming...

    Re: [Deck] Vial Goblins

    After some testing I did reach the conclusion that I really like 3 or 4 Chieftains and cut the Lightning Bolts to increase the goblin density. Although Fanatic does not have a high powerlevel at all,...

    Re: [Deck] Vial Goblins

    Thanks ScatmanX! It's nice to play some games with Goblins again. I kind of gave up on the deck a couple of years ago when Merfolk fell out of favor (having a guaranteed win was lovely) and combo and...

    Yes I was thinking about the same thing yesterday. The old Fanatic would have been great in this Deathrite Shaman infested metagame. Lone Fanatic is basically there because sometimes I want to kill a...

    For the past couple of years I have been allocating some of my spare time to creating a White Stompy deck that is similar to D&T, but with Chalice and Ancient Tomb instead of Vial and Port. The...

    Re: [DTB] Death and Taxes

    It runs a second Recruiter over the second Mirran Crusader. I think this is defensible, especially considering the vast amount of Miracles and Sneak and Show in the Top 64.


    It could be...

    Re: [DTB] Death and Taxes

    Looks great, thanks. Could you provide a general sideboard guide against the top decks: Miracles, BUG Shardless, Eldrazi and Grixis Delver?

    Haven't touched Goblins in a couple of years now, but I'm curious to learn how it is positioned in the metagame right now. Show and Tell and Storm appear practically vanished from the metagame and...

    Re: [Deck] Goblins

    This assessment seems correct against the broader field, but the hypothetical sideboarded Cataclysm or Armageddon would be for specific matchups only such as Lands, Miracles and 12 Post. I would not...

    Re: [Deck] Goblins

    Hello all,

    I've been away from Goblins for a long time and only played Legacy sporadically with some homebrew form of Angel Stompy. The metagame at the moment appeared very unfavorable for my brew...

    Thanks a lot! Any chance of a more detailed sideboard guide against the common decks?
  20. Re: [Report] 13th/173@BoM (~PTQ) Qualifier w/ Manaless

    Nice take on the deck, it looks very solid.
    I have two questions, first of all how do you mulligan. Taking a mulligan basically sets you back a turn, do you ever take mulligans and what are your...

    Why is Chains of Mephistopheles so expensive??

    Chains hovers around 250$ maybe even more. Why is that? Its not particulary playable in Legacy afaik and doesnt seem too exciting in Commander or Cube, so what is the reason, just rarity?? Although...

    Re: [Born of the Gods] Spoiler Thread

    Ok I stand corrected.

    I see UWR just boarding out Probes and maybe a few Ponders and bring in Wear / Tear and stomp all over D&T. Again I like the card but I think the format will adapt just fine...
