    Re: [Deck] W/x Parfait (Tax/Rack Control)

    There are a lot of blatantly competitive concepts you have not recognized. You're just going to have to trust that Crucible should always lose its slot to Karn...that you *will* play Saga with Land...

    Re: [Deck] W/x Parfait (Tax/Rack Control)

    So white stax isn't a competitive deck. Your lock pieces are highly unreliable when it comes to surviving and avoiding blowouts (Ending, Boseju, FoV, mass artifact kill)...but the deck is very very...

    Re: [Deck] Dreadstill - Enter the Fist

    Same list as previous.

    Ashiok is for Doomsday, Reanimator, anything with Crop Rot/GSZ/Reclaimer, Uro, UWx, Hogaak, and anyone trying to use their GY too much.

    PoP is for any deck playing too...

    If you want to kill Depths, Delver, SnT, and Reanimator then it's probably better to run Run Afoul over that many Alpine Moon.

    So 1 in 5 cards in your deck are not going to help you power out a Bane (the Dreadnought module). You're also pathologically going to be turning off Stifle with Ponder on 1, EoT Dress Down on 2, and...

    There's a word we use for Mag Sinkhole in Delver before Murktide - that word is "stock". The reason they stopped using it is not what it did, but that it was competing for GY with Murktide. That's...

    Yeah I don't think you want to be running Murktide in the same list as 4x Uro. For as out there as you think Mine Collapse is, there are approximately 0x Delver decks running Mag Sinkhole.
