    Re: UW Sanctuary (Helm/RiP combo)

    2 Tundra are not a must. This deck has good mana. 2 colors. 8 fetches get either color. 8 cantrips. Land Tax fixes colored basics. Very few double color requirements.

    You could cut down to just 1...
  2. Re: Would appreciate your help in improving my Vaka Nought deck (particularly the SB)

    That does look significantly better with 0 Lazav, 0 Kroxa, 0 Hushbringer, 2 Scroll of Fate, fewer Torpor Orb. It might not be the most synergistic Dreadnought configuration but at least it takes out...

    Re: UW Sanctuary (Helm/RiP combo)

    Looking forwards to hearing your results.

    For a UW sideboard, what do you think about a couple copies of Meddling Mage? After G1 they are boarding out all removal slots and boarding in any and all...

    Re: Laser's Mono Black Aggro 2021

    Wasteland is good. Especially paired with the Op Agent mana denial.

    I just wanted to be able to cast Hymn without mana issues (Cavern + Wasteland). This is a manabase tension that comes up in...

    Re: [Deck] Dreadstill - Enter the Fist

    Is there a viable tempo UB Dreadnought or is that just better achieved by Ur?

    Re: UW Sanctuary (Helm/RiP combo)

    Didn't know what kind of info you're looking for.

    Basically you are playing as a proactive control deck by assembling enchantment combos that take over the game. There's a lot more theory above...

    Re: UW Sanctuary (Helm/RiP combo)

    Teferi, Time Raveler seems good in theory. I started with some in the deck. The problem is Energy Field doesn't protect him. So we either have to expend extra resources to protect him or he dies to...

    Re: UW Sanctuary (Helm/RiP combo)

    The OP lists in this thread are more focused on accelerating out the RiP+Helm combo in a semi-casual way. What Laser and I have built here is a bit different from that. It's more UW control with a...
  9. Re: Would appreciate your help in improving my Vaka Nought deck (particularly the SB)

    @Fox: Looking at that video and some other content, I see what you mean. These decks are winning off the Xerox package but executing the whole Dreadnought+Uro thing poorly. Lazav looks really bad. I...
  10. Re: Would appreciate your help in improving my Vaka Nought deck (particularly the SB)

    @IBA: All great questions. I just responded to OP assuming this was a thing he wanted to do (Hushbringer, Dreadnought, Uro in a tempo shell) and how to make it less bad. But I wouldn't myself play it...

    Re: Laser's Mono Black Aggro 2021

    Lily should be good, especially if you run more than 1 Liliana's Triumphs in the 75.

    2 Bitterblossom might be more correct.

    I've played UB Rogues in Standard: Thieves' Guild Enforcer, Nighthawk...

    Re: Laser's Mono Black Aggro 2021

    Yeah, Blackguard puts a +1/+1 counter on every Rogue that enters after it. It should play well with tokens and cheap flash creatures, though the discard engine can be a bit slow to get going.

    Re: Laser's Mono Black Aggro 2021

    Rotting Regisaur could be vulnerable in a fair deck vs cards like StP and Petty Theft (you get 2-for-1ed or 3-for-1ed after discarding)

    Dark Rit + Opp Agent is one of the best things this deck can...

    Yeah, I would have liked Temporary Solitaire as well.

    Fateful Hour sounds fun in theory but I think will just devolve into players racing to come up with ways to win on turn 0 or cheese each...

    Great results again! Glad to see you doing well with this and enjoying it!

    I would be trying it out in paper tournaments already if they were still a thing. Maybe I'll suck it up and buy the cards...

  17. Re: Would appreciate your help in improving my Vaka Nought deck (particularly the SB)

    Yeah, I agree with Reeplcheep. You should pick a direction.

    It seems like you're leaning towards the tempo plan (Xerox, Stifle, Wasteland, Daze). If so then you don't want Hierarch, Mom, or so...

    Re: UWR super prowess

    Fun build! What are your results like?

    I had some thoughts about this build, if you want to commit to the grow plan instead of having the fair Delver backup plan:
    -StP is bad for racing. Zoo...

    Red would add Punishing Fire (triggers Quandrix) and Valakut Exploration (triggers game win). Maybe even the old Loam classic Seismic Assault (RRR and GGG might be...

    Great results! Glad you had fun playing it.

    Yeah, I think this strategy has real legs. The threat of the various locks and combos sort of forces the opponent to deviate from their plan A and play...
