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

    There's a word we use for Mag Sinkhole in Delver before Murktide - that word is "stock". The reason they stopped using it is not what it did, but that it was competing for GY with Murktide. That's...

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

    Yeah I don't think you want to be running Murktide in the same list as 4x Uro. For as out there as you think Mine Collapse is, there are approximately 0x Delver decks running Mag Sinkhole.

    The issue you're going to run into is unwinnable games vs Chalice as you dropped the Brazens and don't have the land totals nor mana progression (basics) of Dreadstill to hide the Brazen effect on...

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

    The issue is that UR is one of the worst color combinations at going long, and yet games have to go long b/c you absolutely need a ton of time to set up 2 mana and an open land drop (particularly...

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

    You have to be able to pick fights with not-blue cards (i.e. kill spells). When you pick these fights, Delver loses b/c they no longer have agency with Iteration - i.e. they are obligated to dig for...

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

    Trying to rely on a backup plan of Uro or Kroxa looks horrid when you keep turning these into getting 1 for 1'd. It's also quite poor-looking to trap yourself in the Karakas abyss.

    There is also...

    Re: [Deck] UW(x) Landstill

    Counterspell was briefly playable when 5cmc Teferi was printed (1 less mana to hold up compared to 6 mana for JTMS and Cspell). Then it was too slow to be reliable vs Wrenn, and it changed to 3x...

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

    So your fair plan is close to the same (albeit much much worse once Uro gets nuked by Surgical), so every time they answer something with Plow/Ending ask yourself "does a 12/12 get them out of this?"...

    Revealing that you run Stifle and Dreadnought on turn 1 with a green cantrip is suspect.

    Saga fetches Gerrard's 1 mana Ugin's Nexus. It almost let's modern cheat in an Eater of Day's. :tongue:

    This does represent a hard[ish] lock with 13/13 emmy and Karakas.
  17. Re: [DMU] Dominaria United: Reunited and it Feels So Good!

    What you do is sacrifice a Feral Shadow to search up Spirit of the Night. Don't even need to have the other 2 sac-to-tutor dudes to pull of this timeless classic.

    Naw those are real proxy duals. Ban them in your local meta and rename them Underground Sea etc.

    I have played thousands of games with Stiflenought, and fact of the matter is you need something to push removal-based decks out of the format. Your wincon isn't tied to "I'm a skilled player" or "my...

    It's neither positive nor negative.

    The winrate is coming the overrepresentstion of two matchups, not from internal viability. There are a lot of duals in these decks, leading to expensive...

  24. Re: [DMU] Dominaria United: Reunited and it Feels So Good!

    The ability that says "you may cast..." needs to be on the stack pretty sure. I imagine it works like Isochron or Shelldock (i.e. not at all against Teferi).
