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

    I'm strongly in the "rejoice!" camp. Great bans, each and every one. The mistakes of 2019 continue to be undone! Also, can we take snow-covered lands out of our non-Snow decks now? With labe around...

    I got my Zirdas in the mail literally the day after the ban :rolleyes:

    Re: Fantastic Mr. Fox (Zirda/Monoliths combo)

    FTW had Sevinne's Reclamation in some sideboards in earlier builds: I was just thinking about how busted that card seems with Zirda/monolith combo IN THE MAIN. In most lists, seems better to me than...

    Wow the news is coming in fast and furious for Zirda in Legacy! I'm trying to keep the opening post up to date as best I can: I added a section with links to the MTGO-tournament-placing lists and...

    Re: Fantastic Mr. Fox (Zirda/Monoliths combo)

    Right. Gaddock Teeg could come down after Karn in certain scenarios: for example, maybe you have a hand that doesn't make enough red/white mana to cast Zirda but is otherwise solid. You might need to...

    Re: Fantastic Mr. Fox (Zirda/Monoliths combo)

    My only problem with Goblin Cannon is Gaddock Teeg which does still see some play. Why not just Staff of Domination instead? You can then draw into Ballista to win.

    A couple of interesting takes on Zirda in this Joe Dyer article:

    Re: Fantastic Mr. Fox (Zirda/Monoliths combo)

    I've been thinking a bit more about the mono-R all in list: really no reason not to play 1x Shinka, the Bloodsoaked Keep in place of a mountain for random occasions where giving Mr. Fox or Hope of...

    Re: [Deck] MUD (Metalworker)

    That was me on the Fox deck! I was running the mono-R list in the opening post of the thread in N&D.

    We do discuss some sort of MUD hybrid in the thread but losing Chalice, etc... requires a...

    Re: Fantastic Mr. Fox (Zirda/Monoliths combo)

    After some testing, I think that Experimental Frenzy might just be better than Daretti in the mono-R all-in lists. Unlike Daretti, Frenzy can act as yet another mana sink under the combo (an...

    Re: Fantastic Mr. Fox (Zirda/Monoliths combo)

    I've come across cases where I have 2 mana up after resolving Karn, ie., not enough for Basalt Monolith this turn. It's nice to have a way to protect the monolith the following turn in that scenario.

    In the mono-R all-in list, I've been thinking about some number of Daretti, Scrap Savant. The overall idea of then deck, then, is to just overload their counterspells and artifact removal by...

    Re: Fantastic Mr. Fox (Zirda/Monoliths combo)

    If we have enough mana we can just stack another untap trigger in response to bolt/decay on Zirda and still make infinite mana. Sure, Zirda will die the next time we want to do something at sorcery...

    I just ran 40 goldfishes of the exact "all-in" list currently in the OP, which makes room for Hope, Pyroblast, and Cavern of Souls. Cavern...

    I just spent a while following Tobitzki's lead towards maximal speed and redundancy while still having some protection. Here's what I arrived at:

    Combo pieces/mana:
    4 Grim Monolith
    3 Basalt...

    Re: Fantastic Mr. Fox (Zirda/Monoliths combo)

    I was skeptical about greaves at first too, but it's great with Emry and Goblin Engineer, or it lets you protect Mr Fox if for some reason you have to pass the turn without comboing off. I think it...

    Re: Fantastic Mr. Fox (Zirda/Monoliths combo)

    What's gross about this deck is you probably don't even need the Grim Monoliths and Retrofitter Foundries: Zirda is just a +1 card advantage clock by default, which is about all this deck needs when...

    Re: Fantastic Mr. Fox (Zirda/Monoliths combo)

    I like the WelderMUD angle quite a bit as Staff of Domination also combos with Metalworker. Sounds like a lot of fun.

    Emry seems great too!
  21. Re: iKoria Spoilers: Godzilla is a creature type now

    Great idea! Maybe ditch Auriok Salvagers for Metalworker in that case, which allows Cavern of Souls to always name fox for Zirda rather than wishing sometimes is could produce the W for Salvagers.

    Fantastic Mr. Fox (Zirda/Monoliths combo)

    FOX TOO FANTASTIC: Banned May 18th, 2020.

    The name Fantastic Mr. Fox is a reference to the 2009 Wes Anderson film of the same name. Zirda, the Dawnwaker,...

    Here's a quick take on Zirda/Bomberman monty. I've only goldfished about 5 games but it's been consistent at going off turn 2-3 with either a Pact of Negation or Cavern of Souls as protection from...
  24. Re: iKoria Spoilers: Godzilla is a creature type now

    I think the Zirda/Monolith combo might actually be Legacy applicable! Note that other Zirdas can be in the main in addition to the companion, adding further redundancy to the combo in case the first...
