    Re: 4CBS13: a 4-cards blind backbuild bannathon season

    I like 1a or 1b. There are a lot of broken strategies. We'll see more variety if we ban the dominant ones quickly.

    I understand people don't like long banlists, but I have doubts about the...

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

    Good points. Forcing Bane is not worth it.

    Murktide + Uro together seems greedy and easy to attack with GY hate, so I'm starting on 2 Murktide like the Grixis decks. At least with Uro you can...

    Re: Jelly, Eggs and Bacon

    Thanks for posting the results! Too bad about being sick and not feeling 100%.

    Wow, that's a high mulligan rate. It's hard for any combo deck to win postboard games through hate with only 4-5...
  4. Re: 'Mississippi River' (All In Creativity Technique Combo)

    With a full grip shouldn't you be able to go T3 6-drop T4 6-drop with relative ease? So many cascaders in the deck. If so, it's not game-ending to whiff on the first one.



    Sorry, I was not...

    Re: Affinity Aggro 2021

    Is that a strategy you want in a meta of Meltdown, Serenity, Energy Flux and friends? Artifact hate is at an all-time high.

  6. Re: 'Mississippi River' (All In Creativity Technique Combo)

    Congrats on your 3-1.

    It sounds like Leyline is iffy due to limiting your combo. Then again, you should have enough combo starters that you can go off again if you miss on the first branch. You...

    Re: 4CBS13: a 4-cards blind backbuild bannathon season

    How do you beat Impatience?
    You can't cast Change of Heart. No legal target.
    Varchild's War-Riders costs 3 life. If you don't pay the upkeep, you lose to Impatience first. If you pay some upkeeps...

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

    So you're saying things like manabase stability and Daze aren't important because you're going to thrash Delver either way. That's relevant for the direction FourDogs wanted to build.

    In that...

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

    Beating Delver takes stable mana, efficient threats, and cheap removal for their threats - especially Murktide (StP, Pyroblast).

    Delver punishes greedy mana (nonbasics) and 3-4cmc creatures by...

    Re: 4CBS13: a 4-cards blind backbuild bannathon season

    How do you WW here?
    If you cast Impatience, Dooey casts Frenzied Fugue on Impatience and you would lose. So you do nothing. 1 Mindslaver vs tapped lands can't force you to cast any spells.
  15. Re: 'Mississippi River' (All In Creativity Technique Combo)

    Yeah, too bad, the mana is awkward. Guess you're limited to RUG colors and minimal colored costs.

    God-Pharaoh's Statue could work to limit enemy counterspells and free Demonstrate spells?

    If...
  16. Re: 'Mississippi River' (All In Creativity Technique Combo)

    That's worth a test at least.

    Chandra, Awakened Inferno could also be strong and is uncounterable (Esper), but doesn't cascade.




    Nice. I think that's one of the best things your build has...
  17. Re: 'Mississippi River' (All In Creativity Technique Combo)

    Those should be easy. The deck is so redundantly built: 38x land 18x Creative Technique 4x Emrakul. Consistent goldfish should be easy. Matchups with minimal resistance should be easy. Unlike...
  18. Re: 'Mississippi River' (All In Creativity Technique Combo)

    It looks like decent tech. But when do you bring it in? If you're casting big cascade spells, you should already beat a board of X/2s? Edit: Maybe D&T and Elves?

    Is there anything good that would...

    Re: 4CBS13: a 4-cards blind backbuild bannathon season

    This is even simpler. Frenzied Fugue on your Bottomless Vault means you can never store mana or get Ghoul out of your hand. DD 2-2

    I noticed the same but approached it the opposite way. Even with Eladamri's Vineyard and Helm of Awakening, they can't cast Test of Endurance until T7! Most other decks would be sped up by that mana....

    Re: 4CBS13: a 4-cards blind backbuild bannathon season

    Frenzied Fugue can also steal opponent's land and empty all storage counters every turn, preventing opponent from casting any spells. So I think it will lead to a lot of DD.

    It can also force...
  22. Re: 'Mississippi River' (All In Creativity Technique Combo)

    Thanks for doing that detailed analysis.

    The deck in the video had better hits than JPA's. Against JPA's recent UG EurekaTell list I agree. But Jace is rare. Looking at recent results there's a...

    Very good point. Avoid Fate can't counter Pemmin's Aura enchanting opponent's 0/1 token. It can use U: untap and 1: -1/+1 to block silk's attacker and tilt the race. It would only take 1-2 blocks to...
