    Re: [Deck] W/x Parfait (Tax/Rack Control)

    Really obvious, but since I am using a 3 karn list, I suspect I will find room for a recently spoiled portable hole in the board. More flexibility is just exactly what you need in an answer deck that...

    Re: [Deck] W/x Parfait (Tax/Rack Control)

    Hello all.
    My list has not change much since I last posted (post 717), but since the removal of Oko from the environment I am able to squeeze a peacekeeper into the board. Other than that I am happy...

    There are plenty of proxy events about, which is great.
    What is not great is selling fakes for 1000s on Ebay to customers who don't know any better. Ultimately that is what happens, unless someone...

    Re: [Deck] W/x Parfait (Tax/Rack Control)

    My current list. With no paper mtg since September ( I did not play Parfait anyway then), I have done very little- I use X mage to play with friends, and that is about it. That said I feel that...

    Re: Monthly Legacy FNM Cardiff

    Well back again after a long hiatus, with some paper Legacy.
    I believe this was the first paper UK Legacy event post lockdown to fire.
    Four rounds of socially distanced paper Legacy.

    Re: [Primer/Deck] Pox

    No idea. But that sounds more like Stax, bar the howling mine. Now I own 2 stax decks separately, 3 if you count dragon stompy, I love it, but have never reconciled the two.
    At least not in this...

    Re: [Primer/Deck] Pox

    I would take t wire out vs manaless dredge I guess!
    Honestly, if they run lands, it stays in. And the answer is nearly always Tangle over lilly, unless you are playing ur delver and they have just...

    Re: [Primer/Deck] Pox

    Not really any write ups, sadly. I play in 3 places- one is here on the very west of the UK, which is a pretty small scene. Then larger and further afield I play in 10-15 player FNMs and make the...

    Re: [Primer/Deck] Pox

    I have been thinking a lot about the Veil of Summer issue, and it recently struck me that with a classic landkill/prison pox the Veil is less of an issue if you can tap them out. I mean the card has...

    Re: Monthly Legacy FNM Cardiff

    Once again I continue in my mission to track the FNM paper scene here. This is March's offering.

    15 players braving coronavirus and slinging cardboard of various flavours.

    Much more blue than...

    Re: [Deck] W/x Parfait (Tax/Rack Control)

    Added another 3-1 FNM performance, 3rd from 15.

    Beat Bant Miracles 2-1, in turns from 1-0 down. Lost the first to an Oko, basically, needed to dig with scrack and get lucky to resolve a Moat- got...

    Re: [Deck] W/x Parfait (Tax/Rack Control)

    He says Land Tax rectifies the lack of CA, so clearly for some reason he is not referring to Land Tax as part of white in general, and suggesting LT runs against white's natural lack of CA.

    Re: [Deck] W/x Parfait (Tax/Rack Control)

    I prefer City of T over Tombs- they work better with land tax - the deck can grind and the lands get tapped a lot.

    I used to play Zuran main until Karn GTC- at that point it is a sideboard card...

    Re: Monthly Legacy FNM Cardiff

    Because it is FNM, I am not sure it would be possible to grab deck lists for MTG top 8, I can ask if people want to do that. It might be that I can get the lists for the top bracket, but we are often...

    Re: [Deck] W/x Parfait (Tax/Rack Control)

    Gideon works against different decks in different ways. It is a quite good card in a lot of situations.

    Against certain combo decks a t2 gideon buys a turn via the emblem. Belcher is an example,...

    Re: [Deck] W/x Parfait (Tax/Rack Control)

    The main issue with city is that I play the deck as a control deck as much as a combo deck- it is a versatile deck which is the beauty- often running out hate pieces, the draw engine combo, and o...

    Re: Monthly Legacy FNM Cardiff

    Another FNM.
    Once again, 25 players in June has halved to 13.
    Once again nobody wants to play blue. I guess the MTGO players are sick to the back teeth of RUG delver and pile. Certainly isn't that...

    Here is another FNM, this time with a record turnout- sadly a record low of just 12 down from our regular 20-24. Not sure what happened- perhaps all the Brainstorm players had a convention, because...
