    Re: Legacy Showcase 2021 09 19

    That is poor, wow, I think people must have gunned for it. The trick is, in an open meta, can people afford to gun for it and remain competitive?
    You would think that with so many Delver decks the...

    Re: Legacy Showcase 2021 09 19

    Can I ask what is the context here, in terms of "quite poorly"?
    I suspect prevalence at this point is going to be more of a factor than win pc in the end- too much chatter about a ban, it will...

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

    Played Parfait last night.
    The red splash worked, and I got to use an Alpha REB vs Miracles to seal a winning play. Made me feel warm inside.
    Lost 2-1 to Dragon Stomp and Goblins though. The...

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

    I guess parfait has a few contradictions at times, for example I run moat and saga now, and I know from much experience that Pox always has tension when cards like Lily OTV clash with cards in hand,...

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

    Well I am back playing paper, and finally got round to an updated Parfait list.
    Did not have the best of evenings, probably 5% off my game, playing well at times but mulliganing like a muppet, and...

    FNM Cardiff Sept 21

    Well here we were again for yet more FNM Legacy. Another in 3 weeks I think.
    A reasonable turnout of 16 considering the delay and pre releases next week/

    Our event last night had the following...
  10. Monthly FNMs- Cardiff and Bristol- July/August 2021

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

    Been playing around with one saga for one of my sol lands.
    Have to say, I am impressed.
    Saga works with land tax well, makes big men given our artifact count, and tutors for needle, mox d or zuran,...
  12. Monthly Legacy Cardiff and Bristol June 2021- Legacy is back here!

    Legacy is back in paper in South west England and South Wales, and so I am resuming our monthly data collection of the decks played here in paper. These get posted in a couple of places, including...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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...
