    Re: MultiColor Creatures - MCC

    Grist was good but I didn't see it often. I wanted more flexible board interaction in general so I went up to 2 copies.

    I got Lavinia once vs Delver. She shut off Force and Daze, but at that...

    Re: [Format] Martian Timewalk

    Nice list. Looks like putting Pauper's Cage and discard in the spotlight really paid off.

    I guess the Deadwood Treefolk shenanigans were too slow or easy to disrupt?

    I did 20 Goldfishes to see if the deck worked as planned. Most of the time it did.

    The lines felt intuitive, although I've brewed other storm decks with similar lines, so it may come down to play...

    Re: MultiColor Creatures - MCC

    Yeah, you've hit the problem on the nail. The deck just needs more early game. It's playing at Modern speed instead of Legacy speed. It needs more interaction on turn 1 and turn 0.

    We tested this against a few decks.

    4-6 vs Burn (I usually start with Burn as a benchmark for "is this fast enough for Legacy?")
    0-5 vs UR 2Delver
    2-3 vs Goblins
    1-4 vs BR Reanimator

    Good point. Saga makes those starts even more powerful, never casting a counterable spell.

    Glad to be of help.

    City of Brass is good enough. Mana Confluence is better vs Rishadan Port (City deals you damage when Port taps it!!). That's the only difference that comes up often in Legacy....

    Re: MultiColor Creatures - MCC

    The deck looks a lot smoother with the lower curve and more 1cmcs!

    Wild Cantor looks good for mana fixing and setting up General.

    For the manabase, after 4 Pillar + 4 Ziggurat, I think the...

    Cascade and Knight have great synergy with the General. I just think they may be too slow for Legacy. The random cascades also get worse as the curve gets lower.

    Re: MultiColor Creatures - MCC

    I think the underlying problem here is not the speed of Vial or Wish but your overall curve. The decks above lack much going on at 1 mana. The curve really starts at 2-3 mana.
