    Re: Beating everything

    Wish/Karn pretenses aside where having multiple single copies of cards is the best strategy, the concept of silver bullet answers, having a way to beat everything, and "how does it beat X" is too...

    I like Pieces of the Puzzle myself coming from a point of view of someone who has played Peer Through Depths in Solidarity for a long time, and I like Pore too. However, I have one problem with...

    Re: [Primer/Deck] High Tide

    I think this deck does have many options all right! That's part of the fun (and the responsibility when trying to play it at a tournament) in that there are so many ways to look at the same problem...

    Re: [Primer/Deck] High Tide

    Personally, in order to use Counterbalance you really only need 3 Tops, and Top is still a great card to side in believe it or not.

    I think the ideal 60th card for that list is Meditate. I still...

    My honest take on Cunning Wish is also coming from a Spring Tide and Solidarity perspective, so please bear that in mind. Even if you want to cut Cunning Wish completely (and I'm using the bare...

    Re: [Deck] Solidarity

    It was a nice card, but it was never essential, key, or huge. That's a dangerous statement to make. Saying that's it huge would be the same as saying that it's as important as Impulse or...

    A Solidarity player that can't win without understanding the nuances of the deck isn't going to get very far. I don't think that anyone should start by playing Snapcaster/Snap in their deck to...

    The sad thing is that Spring Tide has/had all of those things except for the win at instant speed. Granted, does Time Spiral help out even for a T3 fundamental turn? Yes. Did it move the needle...

    Even though it's been a long time since I've played true Legacy Magic, the one advantage about running Force of Will is that it is, at worst case, almost always a Time Walk. What a deck like Spring...

    A Leyline that acts like Ivory Mask?

    I was pretty pissed when they reprinted Void, but this doesn't help matters.

    Ichorid is a DTB in any metagame at any time. It may not consistently be a DTB due to SB choices though and it doesn't help that people run almost completely inferior choices in their builds. ...

    Still very possible.

    One per every 20 boxes = one per every 720 packs. 6 * 85 = 510 packs. Especially considering that there is no even distribution and everything is pot luck, that's normal. ...

    Re: [Deck] Ichorid

    This is very well said and I completely agree. It is a far weaker play than every other major card in this deck, and I really don't want to cut a card like Unmask for it because I can't think of 2-3...

    My biggest problem with Baubles have been Stifles, not the size of my opponent's Goof. My Burn decks can't beat Zoo anyway, and at least you didn't resolve a near-immediately game ending...

    The card is obviously not Legacy or Vintage playable (although keep in mind that it wasn't that many years ago when Zuran Orb was played).
