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

    If we're not fixing the main problem [i.e. not turning this into UWR Ragavan or UR Dreadstill], this is the mana:
    4x Tarn
    4x Vista
    4x Island
    2x Volc (waste of $800)
    1x Mountain
    3x Wasteland
    ...
  2. Re: [Primer] Six Shades of Dressnought aka Vaka-Nought

    Why are you advocating for sinking $3200 dollars into letting Delver Waste you out of the game in a 2c deck? That's just for the 4 Volc.

    Lavamancer is a much faster card than Uro. I think you've...
  3. Re: [Primer] Six Shades of Dressnought aka Vaka-Nought

    Cartesian's list has quite a few issues, but at least it has Scroll of Fate.

    The actual cost and mana flaws can't be overlooked - 4x Volc is egregious. It's not just a waste of money, it also...
  4. Re: [Primer] Six Shades of Dressnought aka Vaka-Nought

    That is the trap, thinking these game plans are linked and complementary. Ragavan wins games by itself (and it's getting banned), and it's all about Daze exploiting. This is why entire decks are...

    Re: [Deck] UW(x) Landstill

    The easy answer is netdecking.

    UWR Ragavan is based off of my UR Dreadstill list given to Ark4n. He took it in the direction of Ragavan over DRC, and I discussed the issues with disharmonious...
  6. Re: [Primer] Six Shades of Dressnought aka Vaka-Nought

    Watched the VoD by BoshnRoll, with a 3-2 coming off the back of timeout by Emry Cannon with deterministic win on board. Opponents included Zoo (tier 3), high combo representation, low Wasteland use,...
  7. Re: [Primer] Six Shades of Dressnought aka Vaka-Nought

    If you don't build a deck with Standstill correctly, and also don't play it correctly, then it's never going to look good. When people talk about Standstill being a bad topdeck, what they really mean...

    Re: Clock 'Em

    All I heard was put Shared Fate in your 4 Horsemen deck.
  9. Re: [Primer] Six Shades of Dressnought aka Vaka-Nought

    The manabase is under too much stress from Uro, which has always been the problem. Dreadnought does not play nicely with a 3rd color of mana, on top of 2c + colorless lands. Straight-UG does not have...
  10. Re: [Primer] Six Shades of Dressnought aka Vaka-Nought

    Mishra's Bauble is a key player in bad card syndrome. This syndrome is often preceded by Urza's Saga. What is interesting here is the mismatch of 1x Saga and 3x Bauble, which can't cover up Bauble's...

    Re: Psychonaut

    It's not even a gain in speed is the thing. Sure you can Rit -> Thoughtseize -> cast Mask or Torpor, but then you're done. You still have to find the extra mana to cast the big guys face-up or...

    Re: Psychonaut

    Scroll of Fate is a better card in most every way than Mask. Mono-black Dreadnought stuff isn't a real deck b/c it dies to it's own variance of drawing redundant enablers that don't do anything in...
  13. Re: [Primer] Six Shades of Dressnought aka Vaka-Nought

    The play pattern of Teferi and making sorcery speed Noughts is not worth doing, particularly if your deck has Daze. Saga isn't really for UW Dreadstill; even in UR the max is 2x.

    Methodical and...
  14. Re: [Primer] Six Shades of Dressnought aka Vaka-Nought

    To beat removal:
    Step 1 assemble Scroll and Teferi.
    Step 2 tap Scroll on their EoT.
    Step 3 recur it all with Sevinnes and Karn.
    Step 4 throw Standstills at them whenever, until they fall over....

    Re: [Deck] Dreadstill - Enter the Fist

    That's a great way to lose the game to B2B, Moon, and Wasteland. This tactic died in 2012 when maindeck EEs with Trinket Mages fell out of playable. The suggestion you're making, if building...

    Re: [Primer] UB Death's Shadow

    It's important to realize that when a deck is just 1-card combos, that there's nothing going on in the background that guarantees continued relevance. When playing a deck like that and power creep...

    Re: [Primer] UB Death's Shadow

    Grixis Shadow has never been that good, and although DRC is a better card than Delver, the deck really can't be playing low land counts and opening on Volc unless there is a Sea or Fetch in the hand...

    Re: [Deck] Dreadstill - Enter the Fist

    Got to play paper again finally, went 3-1 on UR Dreadstill. Loss to GW Depths, wins vs DnT, BantUroBlade, and BW Dead Guy. Plenty of tech vs GW Depths but never drew it sadly.

    Tons of mulligans...

    Re: [Deck] UW(x) Landstill

    Can't really wait until turn 3 to grab then cast that. I'm also not interested in reseting my GY at the same time for no benefit (i.e. no board presence, no value, no flashback, no combo...

    Someone at WotC needs to explain why Fury doesn't have Flash but Mind Rot now also mills 2 and causes 2 life loss. :eek:

    Forgot that play specifically means "if play -> first attempt to cast -> if cannot be cast, revert to play [i.e. land]."
