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

    All we're counting is damage; we don't care what's dealing it. If they want to blow their spells on stopping a 1-shot Dreadnought, they can't really fight on another axis effectively. They'll either...

    Re: [Deck] Dreadstill - Enter the Fist

    When I'm talking about jammy jams, I'm talking about cards people mindlessly spam regardless of anything else going on in the game. Prime examples include Strix, Snapcaster, Ice-Fang, Uro, Shardless,...

    Re: [Deck] Dreadstill - Enter the Fist

    I count 4 FoW to stop Surgical Extraction. Daze only has text vs players who don't understand that there is no urgency to play into it b/c this isn't an aggressive deck. Sit back, make your land...
  4. Re: [Primer] Six Shades of Dressnought aka Vaka-Nought

    You're missing the key interaction: Urza's last trigger on the stack -> cast Dress Down = you successfully picked a fight you don't actually care about; welcome to real Dreadnought decks.

    If they...

    Re: [Deck] Dreadstill - Enter the Fist

    In UR Dreadstill the combo is counting to 20. That's something you can't do on 4x Ragavan, no other 1 drop dudes, 4x Plow, and 2x Bolt. There is little value in flinging Bolt to the dome in response...

    Re: [Deck] Dreadstill - Enter the Fist

    Ark4n asked for my Dreadstill list and we talked about the issues with Ragavan on turn 1 -> Standstill on turn 2 -> your opponent just taps Karakas and you're screwed. This is why I use DRC in UR...

    Re: [Deck] UW(x) Landstill

    Lifegain remains the primary deficit of UW-based Standstill decks, but Timeless Dragon has made the mana real dumb - like stupid easy. These are the motifs and what you need to know about them:

    Wrong forum without results. You also have significant problems with making summoning sick Dreadnought-types at sorcery speed, such that opponents will always untap, draw a card, and have a land drop...

    Re: [Deck] Dreadstill - Enter the Fist

    We are talking about Daze in the context of this StifleNought list. The problem with Daze here is that the deck can't threaten anything meaningful on the turn that it is doing the thing - it makes...

    No. This StifleNought deck has zero cards it can play early which can generate pressure and force opponents to play into Daze. It also lacks spells that target life totals. The opponent has all the...

    So the first opponent barely passed the 'not a modern deck registered into a legacy league' test. The 8 cards they showed were: 4x Fetch, 2x UR shock, 1x Ragavan, and at the very end a Wasteland. I'm...

    The main thing to take from that video is how bad Daze was. You have to be able to pressure to play cards like that. When you can't pressure you're trying to draw past not only dead Dazes, but also...

    UW mostly on the back burner until Daze is banned; it's just a little too easy to beat up on everything UR Delver does with UR Dreadstill.

    UW is mostly unchanged:

    Re: D&D (Maybe Better Off) Forgotten Realms Previews

    Someone in R&D needs to realize Power Word Kill is a level 9 spell, and Tasha's Hideous Laughter is a level 1 spell. I think maybe they're a bit confused by the spell power system in D&D.
  18. Re: Vaka Nought - A Powerful Brew Abusing Stifle and Dress Down to slam 12/12s and Ti

    So uh, Uro by itself as a 1-card combo with recursion - that is technically enough to get Uro banned. That it has limited crossover with Dreadnought doesn't change the assessment of Uro. Dreadnought,...
