    Re: WotC Ending Pro Play Discussion

    That's my point...there wouldn't be formats anymore, other than commander and kitchen table.

    Re: [Deck] Affinity

    Have you gone anywhere with this? I am intrigued, and I have most of the cards to put something together.

    Re: WotC Ending Pro Play Discussion

    Bingo, so in my mind it carries even further: it major events are cancelled, is there even a reason for a banlist? As you note, this is 100% hypothetical. I don't think big events are going away,...

    Re: WotC Ending Pro Play Discussion

    Is there a discussion to be had about how the pro-tour/etc caused prices to climb up due to expanded demand? Is cutting off the pro-tour (or whatever they replace it with) a way to keep older cards...

    Re: [Primer] Nic Fit

    I don't see how that 4/4 is free...I mean, you still have to pay 4 mana for a vanilla 4/4. If you're looking to set up that play you need 7 mana over 2 turns, which doesn't seem great to me.

    Re: [Primer] Nic Fit

    I don't think you want Brooding Saurian or Wishclaw Talisman, they are just too fragile. Dark Petition comes to mind, especially if you are looking to add more non-creature disruption to the deck...

    Re: [Primer/Deck] Pox

    I can certainly understand that sentiment, it's a super fun deck. I just think if you're going to play traditional Pox, as a grindy deck, it's better to go deeper into the prison approach: Ensnaring...

    Re: [Deck] Dreadstill - Enter the Fist

    I think you're probably better off playing Shadow if you want a tempo UB list; it doesn't need any extra cards like Stifle to make a big dude, just high velocity and synergy with the mana-base.

    Re: [Primer/Deck] Pox

    I think there is a place for DD in a pox-ish setup...but it's likely better to go the Reanimator Depths route if you want mono-black. You can endlessly tweak the main/side to suit your playstyle and...

    Re: [DECK] Grixis Death's Shadow

    Maybe it's time to re-evaluate Delver of Secrets? That allows for lurrus, and gives another t1 play that allows untapped mana for Counterspell. The curve makes more sense, and Counterspell is a...

    Re: Jund Dreadhorde Shadow

    That's fair. Now I need to figure out how to build Esper around it...if I can't have Gurmag or Geist, maybe Delver?

    Re: Jund Dreadhorde Shadow

    I missed the enchantment-in-the-graveyard detail, so that's probably a good call, not just for Traverse but bigger Goyfs. I missed the Angler/Lurrus interplay...I forget that the mana value is...

    Re: [Deck] Dreadstill - Enter the Fist

    You are alone in this sentiment, I think. For myself, I will not operate under the assumption that I need to build my decks with Hymn to Tourach and Counterbalance in mind. That just isn't reality. I...

    That's ridiculous; you're the only person that I've ever read about Hymn being a ban-worthy card. The most protected card by bans is Brainstorm, I don't think there is a reasonable debate about it,...

    Re: Jund Dreadhorde Shadow

    I like it, and Jund seems to be the best Shadow shell currently in Modern. I think you need a minimum of 2 Dismember though, not only to increase life loss (you aren't playing Street Wraiths) but to...

    Re: [DECK] Grixis Death's Shadow

    I truly forgot Orzhov Charm was an instant, honestly. I can understand that point now, as having 2 untapped lands can represent both Counterspell or Orzhov Charm. OC if they don't cast anything...

    Re: [DECK] Grixis Death's Shadow

    Those are fair points, thanks. I think the apples to apples comparison for Dismember is Path to Exile though, not Unearth. Unearth would only ever be a value card provide inevitability. It returns...

    People pay him to play their decklists, you could argue because they like to explore fun, even if bad, deck ideas. He's very honest about how good/bad the deck performs as well; he gives it a small...

    Re: [Primer/Deck] Pox

    I think the biggest tension with Pox + Depths is Smallpox. I would say that is the card that needs to go to incorporate Hexmage/Depths. Otherwise the deck works as a mono-black control deck with a...

    Re: [DECK] Grixis Death's Shadow

    I think overall Unearth fits the deck better than Orzhov Charm, simply due to a cheaper casting cost. Unearth gives value to Snapcaster as well, especially given that the deck has dropped Serum...

    Yeah, I was just keeping in the confines of deck contruction with a reasonable mana base in mind, not actual gameplay. Urza's Legacy could very well be much better than Factory, but without results...
