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

    A single -12 makes it very hard to win with Ad Nauseam. Meanwhile you barely spent any mana and can threaten interaction all day.

    Their only chance is if you have slow clocks that tap you out of...
  2. Re: 4CBS13: a 4-cards blind backbuild bannathon season

    Zero points seems OK.

    It would be hard to come up with a fair solution otherwise. Memnite may work to replace 1 banned card. But what if there are no banned cards and the deck just doesn't beat...

    Re: [Deck] Eva Green - B/g suicide

    It sounds like you want to play Bg aggro-control (creatures & disruption) and not Loam Pox or Depths/other combo. That is Eva Green then.

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

    The standalone threats are slow clocks though (gives them time to get a 2nd wind) and you don't care about 2-for-1s vs combo. Sailors Bane can't kill until turn 7ish? Stiflenought kills turn 4. The...

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

    I think this is a mistake.

    Dreadnought is a very powerful tool against combo. Cheap efficient clock. They don't have removal or blockers. This is the 12/12's best match!

    How did you board against ANT? What went in and what went out? I wonder if that's the problem. Because even if you Force the wrong thing, this matchup seems 98%/2% in your favor.

    Even worse: the mana. 4x Breeding Pool + 0 Prismatic Vista + 0 Forest. Delver and Goblins are both Wasteland decks. His deck runs Uro, which forces blue fetch to get UG dual. 2-4 mana creatures are...

    Agree with Fox.

    You can't Force, no 1-mana blocker, no 1-mana removal. All you can do is pray they don't have Muxus, Goblin Grandee = game over. Goblin...

    Yeah this is Eva Green. An old archetype that's been around for many years.

    Daze needs a lot of "Island"-typed lands. Either

    Your budget Delver deck didn't have enough "Island"...
