    Re: [Deck] Dreadstill - Enter the Fist

    UBw Landstill is better; to the point that using Karn to wish out a Scroll and Dreadnought [just to call the deck Dreadstill] would be an improvement over UB Dreadstill.

    The only other...
  2. Re: Would appreciate your help in improving my Vaka Nought deck (particularly the SB)

    The thing about Hushbringer is that you don't ever want to cast a Dreadnought into it, b/c you know that Hushbringer is 100% dying to removal while Nought is on the stack. You have to be able to...

    Re: [Deck] Dreadstill - Enter the Fist

    Confidant is played with Petal, and we only play TurboBob + Dreadnought in combo renaissances (Dig Through Time, Breach). Your list has no turn 1 plays [DRS is banned, and Delver isn't there] and...
  4. Re: Would appreciate your help in improving my Vaka Nought deck (particularly the SB)

    I think it's pretty hard to defend NO and Progenitus and not be on Elves [where Progenitus can live in the sideboard]. On the other side there is Maverick with GSZ and the build-your-own Progenitus...

    You're a terrible person for putting this together; also congratulations! :cool:

    Now you'll need to start your maybe-box. Begin with Yixlid Jailer

    Not banned does not equal protected by bans.

    Bans in legacy do not correlate with keeping Brainstorm or Delver of Secrets relevant. Hard stop.

    Re: [Deck] Dreadstill - Enter the Fist

    You missed the part about Hymn being the most protected card by bans. Given that history it would not be surprising to see Uro banned. Ask yourself where all the Hymn spammers are - hint: on Uro.
  8. Re: Would appreciate your help in improving my Vaka Nought deck (particularly the SB)

    @TheInfamousBearAssassin the reason why is that some 1-card combos allow people to hide deckbuilding flaws. For some reason people thought Stifle'ing their own Uro trigger was good. Take away the...

    Let's have mana we can accomplish something with.

    5x Island (4x snow)
    2x Forest (1x snow)
    1x Trop
    2x Wasteland

    You should fast forward to his breakdown of the deck, the worse it performs the more he lauds it. The deck went 2-3 and picked up at least one if its wins from DnT, which is one of that build's few...

    Re: [Deck] Dreadstill - Enter the Fist

    It's fairly pointless to play Teferi just to make sorcery speed, summoning sick, phased-in Noughts and pass to the opponent's mainphase.

    On Hushbringer: useless in multiples. Scroll of Fate can...

    Re: Modern Horizons 2 Previews

    You can use Hex Parasite to yo-yo between stage I and II to maintain a token engine (but will not work on the stage III). The main thing you're looking for however is to get the anti-Chalice effect...

    We don't actually care about the phase III text, it just happens to work with what we're doing. For us it's about improving the mana. For everyone else brewing, they're making their mana worse to go...

    It's not like Factories didn't already die (particularly when animated), that's an assumption the deck accounts for. I would classify it as exceedingly rare to get 2 attacks out of a Factory without...

    What we've been looking for in UR Dreadstill for years is a 2x Manland that can replace 3x Factory. This is the first manland to show promise. This is not getting added to a stack of Wastelands and...

    You misclicked the Dreadstill thread. Retrofitter Foundry is a rather feeble and slow card, particularly if you are losing lands + highly susceptible to Wasteland. In terms of affinity, you lose...

    So a 2011 deck and an event with 24 players in 2017 is it? Tell you what, top8 a showcase (on hard mode - Oko, Dreadhorde, Astrolabe legal). I mean as deeply flawed mantra that "Decay is good against...

    Results please. Sounds a lot like this thought process:
    1- Ancient Tomb + Dreadnought + Mimic
    2- zero protection, zero interaction, zero manipulation
    3- must play Chalice to have a chance

    Vision Charm disagrees with the use of the word "decorative."

    Torpor Orb is not the play. It's turn 1 land, turn 2 Urza's -> Standstill, turn 3 EoT make a dude, untap make a dude. If they crack...

    Yeah, so the reason for that is so you can Vision Charm, name lands, change Urza's to Island, and Daze it back to hand.

    Just so we're all on the same page, Urza's Saga is a manland for Dreadstill. Also you all are so effing lucky it can't wish out a Portable Hole.
