[Fedoras of Salvation] - White Knights ITT

Pretty low since that basically reads 1R - Sorcery - Shock.

Assuming you meant to make it like Searing Blaze, still pretty low since it is 2 damage and at sorcery speed. Only requiring one red doesn't help it much. Searing Blood and Draconic Roar only see marginal play right now.

Already qualified for the PT. Why not get the bling?

I have never been so salty from winning a tournament. Took down a Legacy tourney at my LGS today. Won a LED. Guy who took second got two MM packs. Pulled Goyf and Cryptic. Not angry in any way, shape, or form but what are the odds?

You could just say "Fuck you" as you jam foil Lava Spikes, Rift Bolts, and Goblin Guides down their throats. There's nothing more elitist OR ironic than crushing people with your foil Burn deck. I am in absolute agreement. Sick of my burn deck? Fine, I will foil it out and beat you even h...

8 Skullcrack effects is definitely overkill. I think 6 is sufficient if you are on the Atarka version.

(POST ROTATION) JESKAI BURN

If I were to drop the Regents and Ojutai, I would probably bring in 2 Brimaz, 2 Phoenix and the third Stance that I cut earlier. The Roars would go back to being Strikes, obviously. Having said that, my first impulse would be to bring back SBD, but I think he might simply die too often since I can't...

Dragons are indeed an all or nothing sort of thing. Phoenix was high on my list before Regent. Perhaps I will test with it. I will miss Draconic Roar though. Have you had any issues with your Phoenix surviving a Drifting Death on the other side of the board?

Do you feel that Ashcloud is better than Thunderbreak? Can you reliably cast Brimaz with 15-16 white sources? I had to distort my manabase in order to get him on the field.

I like it because it protects itself until I am ready to protect it myself. Stormbreaths just die to Stoke/Price these days. As for the rest of my list, still tweaking the Slash/Stance/Anticipate/Dig numbers.

If you hold priority and have 8 red mana available, yes.

I only play a single Rending Volley and it is specifically for the "cannot be countered" clause to fight Twin.

The last time Merfolk was played around here, my weapon of choice against them was Satyr Firedancer. With my current list, I would just bring in Revelry, Path, and maybe Rending Volley.

I highly suggest Lavaman over Fanatic. The extra control factor is just too important. Otherwise, go full on Zoo and add Kird Ape and Nacatl. I would probably bring in 2 Revelries against Grixis with my list. Pridemage is the better of the two but requiring both of our off colors is a definite downs...

I never found GW that bad. Anger just crushes them if you drop it early. I am very surprised that you didn't like Ojutai. Did it die when you attacked every time or something? It should have been a real player against GW, Mono Green, Bant, and Abzan at least. Would it have been better as Stormbreath?

The only matchup where I don't want Eidolon is Affinity. Against everyone else it is good at least on the play if not on the draw. I agree with Valdarith about Shard Volley.

I am very curious as to what he fought against. Pre-boarded counters is neat and all but I question the offense and staying power of his threats. I have no idea how that list beats control outside of a large number of his 11 burn spells.

They should drop a good bit. I would not be surprised to see the price cut in half like you suspect. Burn is a popular deck but since it was one of the few expensive cards, those that wanted to play the deck already have them.
