    A 3.0 threshold concerns me with mana sources. If we'd had such a threshold for this tournament, we'd likely be very low on, if not completely without any FE/INV saclands, probably very color limited...

    Field of Ruin is on the base ban list too, adding a green mana requirement to make it also a Naturalize isn't clearly making it weaker. Seeing it as practically halfway between two banned cards in...

    Just like against my deck, I think the possibility of sacrificing Ruins for 2 Firebrands can draw for Asthereal. If you open with Mentor then Mage, double Firebrand draws. If you make an Elf instead...

    WoP could bounce Honor Guard in response to you casting Horror, with the 2 3/3 pro-blacks he'd presumably win. If you refuse to cast Horror he can make plenty of mana to blow up a land and drop his...

    Reckless Waif would lose straight up to Student, and Student loses to Noble. Waif needs to transform before Noble is 4/4 to hold it.

    Re: 4 Card Blind

    I think double Fountain gets you points here. GSM only wins turn 12, which is just enough time to cast Muse twice OTP for 3-3. I don't think there's anything OTD with Magus forcing a goblin to sac,...

    Re: 4 Card Blind

    But when FTW is on the play he'll bounce Grazer and you'll discard it, along with either Hydra Lair or the mana you need to activate it, so a single 1/1 will be enough. It was a tight call between...

    Re: 4 Card Blind

    I don't think you're right on these when on the draw. You do win OTP by forcing the first creature or Furnace to sac. OTD:

    Neonate | Island, Cutpurse

    Two disagreements.

    Not actually a disagreement, but I make this 2-2. Squee can't be cast until turn 5, so Bazaar gets dusted first on play and draw.

    Re: 4 Card Blind

    GSM can hold Stomp to prevent Nexus from winning, and drop Squee as an attacker. I think 0-6.



    None of the lands can stop Fiend from winning by itself. I think 6-0.
