  1. Re: First legacy deck - Izzet Delver budget, need reviews

    If you want to play paper legacy with zero dual lands, there's only really a few ways to play a optimal/near-optimal deck.

    Pathway 1 is ragequit legacy b/c you built Shadow and never stood a...

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

    You start running into problems in the format if you're playing a lot of 3/2 bodies without pretty heavy removal accompanying them. There's 1 mana 3/4s and Goyf/Murktide types on 2 mana, so it can...

    Re: [Primer/Deck] Pox

    As a Pox deck you should be way more concerned with the first real anti-discard card since SDT was banned. There are reactive (bad) cards like Veil of Summer ofc, but very few "you can't discard me...

    The problem is that Hullbreacher is a bad card. It can at least attack, which is an okayish backup plan without Bolt...but it doesn't really get you ahead, nor does it really improve in multiples....

    When it comes to MindTwister stuff it's important to remember that Narset is a pretty bad card by itself. It can't take over the game, it's legendary, and even if we ignore insta-death to Bolt there...

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

    The way this works out most often is you've got a standoff where your constructs can't really attack and the opponent can't make it past the construct blocks. You can't afford to wipe your dudes, so...

    Bauble is a bad card, it is either all-in (Ancient Tomb) or the worst card in the deck (Delver, Shadow). If you are adding Saga, the card you are not trying to grab is Bauble, particularly for...

    For the most part FIRE design is fine; stupid, but fine. The defining characteristic of FIRE is that it invalidates at least Goyf or total hand destruction, and most often it invalidates both at the...

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

    It is easier to do postboard with a 2nd Furnace-type and Ashioks. The main thing is turning Saga into a card they can't tolerate, and must bleed hand size to handle (and by handle I mean discard a...
