    Re: [Deck] ANT (Ad Nauseam Tendrils) Storm Combo

    This is kind of a longer topic than I have the time to get into at the moment, but most people I see tend to default to boarding out Preordain in every matchup, and I think that's insane.

    Re: [Deck] ANT (Ad Nauseam Tendrils) Storm Combo

    You don't always go for it, but it's a pretty good rule of thumb. Basically what you should be asking yourself is "Am I more likely to win if the game goes longer than I am right now?"

    Yeah, Bolt doesn't make any sense to me for these reasons. Being able to go off with a lower storm count seems like a fringe bonus at best, in what world can you get to exactly 6-7 spells on the...

    There are two types of hate permanents: ones that just stop you from winning (Leyline of Sanctity), and ones that mess up with progressing your normal plan of cantripping, building up your graveyard,...

    I usually board in 2 Decays against UWR. Having a way to fight their disruption that can't get Pyroblasted can be pretty valuable.

    It's a lot easier to look at specific examples than to make broad claims about exactly when to use each cantrip.

    There are two very good reasons to sideboard lands:
    1) There are a lot of powerful lands in legacy that you would want to sideboard, but never want to draw game 1. Karakas is the best example of...

    Re: [Deck] ANT (Ad Nauseam Tendrils) Storm Combo

    If Miracles wasn't going to have 3+ Pyroblasts postboard this might be a good idea. As is, I can only see this being profitable against Chalice decks, so I think I'd rather just have a Hurkyl's Recall

    I can't imagine wanting to board Bob in against any deck with Lightning Bolt. I only ever board it in against other combo decks and Miracles, where it's fine but not great. There are definitely cards...

    Re: Top 4 at GP NJ

    I wouldn't read too much into it, at this point I don't play very much Legacy, and when I do, I'm usually playing Miracles.

    Yeah, against Miracles and Lands. Discard gets pretty bad quickly against both, and the game is over if you can't deal with their lock pieces.

    Re: Top 4 at GP NJ

    My first instinct is to cut Ad Nauseam for a Grim Tutor, since Ad Nauseam is very bad right now. It's probably still an effect you want in the sideboard, but there are a lot of decks that I just...

    My hand does nothing, and I wanted to incentivize him to not play Young Pyromancer on the following turn since I'm trying to buy as much time as I can to draw out of it.

    Yeah I almost played that deck, then decided I just wanted to crush it instead. I even bought foil Delvers.
