    A Promise of Power and a Diabolic Tutor, which may or may not be good cuts. I have no experience with the original Odyssey-block MBC, but a few matches against proactive decks in our current rotation...

    Re: Random Standard @ The Source 2021

    I tested Mono-Black Control with two or three Culling Scales in conjunction with Nevinyrral’s Disk. It was pretty devastating. In addition to mopping up creatures and Chrome Moxes, those cards were...

    Thanks, FTW, for keeping my Skeleton Shard hopes alive!

    I’m finding that White Weenie is more than just an anti-black meta deck. It has a low curve, perfect mana, flexible removal, and a proactive...

    Oops! I just realized that Arcbound Ravager and Arcbound Worker are from Darksteel, not Mirrodin, so they're not legal in this rotation. They played a big role in two of the decks I was building,...

    Re: Random Standard @ The Source 2021

    @ESG: I agree, the mana is a challenge in this rotation. It's hard to build even a two-color deck.

    @FTW: Yeah, I can't see why both MBC and UG Madness wouldn't be contenders. As for Unsummon, it's...

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

    I take it you mean differently named cards (to me “individual cards” sounds like you’re counting 4 Llanowar Elves as 4 cards); that is, you’re counting 4 Llanowar Elves + 1 Lightning Bolt as two...
  9. Re: D&D (Maybe Better Off) Forgotten Realms Previews

    Well, by your reasoning the average number of cards from any given year showing up in any given list should be 75/28 = 2.5 or so (I.e., not less than 1) ... but your point still makes sense with that...

    Re: Random Standard @ The Source 2021

    That seems like a sensible take on Erayo. I like the plan of waiting for the opponent to cast a spell, then responding with Brainstorm/Gush/free counters to flip Erayo.

    Your list reminded me of...

    What else goes in that deck?

    Also, how do the rules work there? Stage becomes a Saga, no? And Sagas gain counters each turn, no? It sounds cool, but I’m confused.

    Sure, you can put “bad” cards in a good context and “good” cards in a bad context.

    The thing about the “bad” cards you listed is that they mostly either enable a cheap, game-winning combo (LED,...
