    The Japanese crew working on Bomberman are incredibly impressive in that they've freed themselves from what see as sacred cows - Mentor and the Bauble package. Once you cut Mentor, there's...

    I like this over Magus of the Disk that Rationalist was playing. Seems great as a tutor bullet.

    I'm just throwing ideas on to the wall - could very well be right that no artifact lands is good. I was aiming to increase the probability of turn one Bob (because with artifact lands, Opals are an...

    Great stuff @ComeOnAndSlam! Glad you enjoyed the list and my writing on it. I think a lot of the technology found pre-DRS ban will be excellent tools to use adapting to the format moving forward,...

    Re: Chalice Bomberman/Bomberman Stompy

    I think my big fear for this archetype is that bigger graveyard hosers - RiP/Leyline of the Void, etc. - are going to be more prevalent in people's sideboard. This really nukes, in particular, the...

    Re: Chalice Bomberman/Bomberman Stompy

    I think this Blue-White build and mono-White are about the same in terms of power level. Blue-White feels a little "slower" because Opals are not as consistent early in the game (though there is...

    Some great discussion here so far everyone. Just wanted to keep you all updated on how the Sai build has been going so far through my limited Cockatrice testing.

    I actually can't really agree on Paradoxical Outcome over Karn - PO does one thing: draw cards - and it does so conditionally as well. You mentioned that Karn gets slammed into countermagic, but so...

    Re: Chalice Bomberman/Bomberman Stompy

    Great stuff! Kaono I'm still really curious about the mana - is Metalcraft reliable enough without the Ancient Dens in your mana base? How do the Mox Opals overall "feel" to you?
  14. Re: [Deck] Canadian Threshold (aka RUG Delver, Tempo Thresh)

    Please give us a sideboard too! Looks good so far, though I am dubious about the main deck Abrade (non-one cmc removal that doesn't go to the face I am wary of). Seems like you have way too much...

    Re: Chalice Bomberman/Bomberman Stompy

    I guess I do feel less worried about Reanimator these days, but I will agree I'm a little soft to it currently. Wail and Bridge at least also do something in these matchups, so that's something.

    Okay, based on everyone's thoughts I'll be testing two thing this Thursday:

    Zero Ancient Den, second Fair and two Karakas in the main.
    Ensnaring Bridge in the sideboard.

    List will look...

    I can understand Ancient Den feeling sub-par, but I do truly believe that mono-White's benefit is the smoother mana and the more explosive openings because more consistent Mox Opals. I love utility...

    Re: Chalice Bomberman/Bomberman Stompy

    I think Sanctum is more than just "nice". Prelate + Chalice makes us less prone to Hurkyl's Recall which is otherwise a complete blowout (getting lands bounced is... Sad). Prelate also is a very...

    It's our worst mmatchup by far. You can get through sometimes with a busted Mentor draw (and then see Bridge, ugh), but almost never expect to combo between Chalice, Leylines, 3Ball etc. Karn really...
