    Re: Random Standard @ The Source 2021

    Island Sanctuary reminds me that turbo fog is viable here. I forgot Ghostly Prison was in that block too.

    You're right, this really is a "stay for the prison decks" format.

    I think it's worth trying out if you're already struggling vs Delver no matter which configuration you submit.

    Re: [Deck] Dreadstill - Enter the Fist

    If you're talking about Ark4n's video where he double Stifled Saga to stop construct creation, I think he was tapped out for Ragavan when Saga hit Chapter 2. Waiting a turn to hold up Stifle mana is...
  4. Re: [Primer] Six Shades of Dressnought aka Vaka-Nought

    That's a good trick and justifies running the two together a lot more. Especially if you managed to get some value from the 1st Construct (trade or chump block), knowing that you plan to Dress Down...

    Re: Syphilis (Junk Pox)

    If you want a 1-of target that grinds vs control when you're low on resources and Scroll is suspect, why not just play 1 Retrofitter Foundry?

    Re: [Deck] Dreadstill - Enter the Fist

    Interesting. That explains the deck choices.

    Skimming through some of his leagues, it looked like Standstill was the worst card in the deck. The deck can't just drop turn 2 Standstill on an empty...

    Re: Random Standard @ The Source 2021

    Erayo's a great idea. Completely missed that. You can gain consistency with cantrips and Gifts Ungiven.

    There should be enough free spells in the format. There are more than I realized.

    Re: [Deck] Armageddon Stax

    Archon's a great idea. Deserves testing. Slowing down fetchland by an extra turn is big, and it punishes decks trying to chain cantrips and fetchlands.

    Re: Syphilis (Junk Pox)

    Maybe some of the cute utility slots like 1 Loam and 1 Cling can go to the SB, freeing up maindeck space. I'd try to keep Cursed Scroll main since you have no instant speed interaction (vs Dash...

    Re: [Deck] Armageddon Stax

    Yeah maybe Lodestone over 3-ball. Turn 3 Lodestone is much slower than turn 2 3ball though. I think Lodestone needs a land like Eldrazi Temple to really make it in Legacy.

    Should this be playing 3-4x Liliana of the Veil? I would start there for interaction before Hymn, since it also interacts with the board and has high synergy with your engines.

    Nesting Grounds has potential. You could also move soot counters off Smokestack or move fading counters from a dying Tangle Wire to a newer one. Much tech possible.

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

    Good point, swapping some Prismatic Ending main with StP SB may help with things this deck struggles against. StP is useful as instant-speed interaction though, vs Dashed Ragavans, Sneak Attack...
  16. Re: [Primer] Six Shades of Dressnought aka Vaka-Nought

    The big difference is when they die it's a 1-for-1 instead of a 2-for-1 (Stifle+Nought), which leaves more resources to protect the threat or otherwise interact with the opponent.

    Also Delver,...

    What do you all think of Akr4n's winning URw "Dreadstill" list just splashing 1x Dreadnought 1x Standstill, and going heavy on Urza's Sagas and Ragavans?

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

    I agree with Clark that Dress Down is much better than Torpor Orb.

    The 2nd Torpor Orb is a dead card, while the 2nd Dress Down isn't, so Torpor Orb is terrible in multiples.
