    Re: [Primer] Six Shades of Dressnought aka Vaka-Nought

    Why Bauble? Bauble is such a bad card. UR Delver runs it only to increase the number of card types available for Delirium. If you have Phyrexian Dreadnought and Dress Down, you already have...

    Re: Jelly, Eggs and Bacon

    I tested the OP list (with full SBs). 3 matches vs UR Delver (0-3) and 3 matches vs Goblins (1-2).

    The deck generally came together, but I found it was about 1 turn too slow. I kept losing the...

    Re: [Format] Martian Timewalk

    Nice decks! Davriel is a big upgrade for Rack+Mind Twist decks. Narset is great for blue control. Karn seems good in a lot of decks.

    For that black deck, 4 Disrupting Scepter seems like overkill....

    Should have specified this in my post. If opponent does nothing, I play out my lands and eventually get to cast Cathar "Turn 1 OTP" (opponent has 0 permanents in play).

    You open with Dryads. I trade lands and you can't cast more threats. In this version of the deck, I can still play my threat after trading lands, so I can Cathar your Dryads and win.

    I'll try out those changes, thanks! Demonic Tutor wins over Mystical. Maybe BW doesn't need 4 spot removal, so I'll try those other cards.

    Abundant Harvest is not good either. It can find mana, but a random nonland card is MUCH worse than tutoring.

    Re: 4 Card Blind

    Oh, right. I miscounted and thought T2 Reaver killed on T5. It needs 4 attacks.
    So then I can't race you and am forced to play for the draw by stealing your land. DD 2-2

    Re: Random Standard @ The Source 2021

    I think the mana isn't strong enough for 3 color decks, so 2-color is probably the way to go.

    Re: 4 Card Blind

    Agree. In scenarios like this you should be able to force draws and avoid losses, since you have turn 1 haste damage from the 1/1 token.

    You have 2 options for turn 1 sacrifice fodder:

    Yorion D&T should have room for 1. The downside is low and the upside of extra removal/flooding protection in an 80-card deck seems good.

    Re: Mono Black Rip Helm Gains

    Fair IGG is bad, in any deck. You tutor FoW+blue card+2nd disruption/cantrip to opponent's hand and get a suboptimal Storm engine. Storm hasn't wanted that card for a very long time.

    Clever way to make Mythic fatties that can't be cheated into play. Make them the flip side of a noncreature card that has some delayed transform trigger (Saga Chapter 3).
