    Re: The Dragonstorm

    Yeah, I don't see a good plan to beat all GY hate. Instead my plan was to pivot win conditions with Empty or Tendrils.

    Instead of Void Snare, Consign // Oblivion (replacing 1 Brazen Borrower)?...

    Good point. Saga makes those starts even more powerful, never casting a counterable spell.

    Re: MultiColor Creatures - MCC

    Glad to be of help.

    City of Brass is good enough. Mana Confluence is better vs Rishadan Port (City deals you damage when Port taps it!!). That's the only difference that comes up often in Legacy....

    Is Sphere of Annihilation helping in those matchups?

    How's the 4x Sudden Edict main performing? Seems great against Depths, Reanimator, SneakShow, and threat-light blue decks. But what about fair...

    Re: MultiColor Creatures - MCC

    The deck looks a lot smoother with the lower curve and more 1cmcs!

    Wild Cantor looks good for mana fixing and setting up General.

    For the manabase, after 4 Pillar + 4 Ziggurat, I think the...

    Thanks for the comments!

    Feel free to still try it out in Legacy.

    Have you tested much against other Legacy decks?

    Re: MultiColor Creatures - MCC

    Cascade and Knight have great synergy with the General. I just think they may be too slow for Legacy. The random cascades also get worse as the curve gets lower.

    Re: MultiColor Creatures - MCC

    I think the underlying problem here is not the speed of Vial or Wish but your overall curve. The decks above lack much going on at 1 mana. The curve really starts at 2-3 mana.

    The biggest challenge to designing fair 5c is having a functional manabase. You need to be able to consistently play your cards through both draw variance and the opponent's disruption. Mana...

    I like the creatures-only idea to mix it up and allow some cards we haven't seen much.

    Good points. I'll have to try that out!

    For the Painter version, could you not just run 4 slots too: 3x Painter + 1x Grindstone?

    Grindstone does nothing on its own (like Dreadnought), but...

    I think what people are saying (and I agree) is that Daze+clock is good against combo.

    Some people cram Daze into midrange decks. Against such decks it's very easy to "slow roll" around Daze,...

    Sounds like GR Aggro needs some competition. The consistent aggro pressure, massive card advantage engines, and cheap removal seem to work together well.

    If you need to splash any combo at all, I think Painter + Grindstone looks better. Painter decks often play Welders anyway.
