deck was sweet! battle rage is a little cute. i think i would cut one for the 3rd firecraft, and maybe the other for another titans str.

i was testing the abzan matchup a lot and it felt good, despite the misbuilt battle rages.

I was thinking of ways we can beat the deck postboard. i was thinking about self inflicted would, but i think i would just prefer roast. then it dawned on, despite could be a GREAT SB card vs abzan.

+3 Despise +3/4 Roast could be very good!

leopard swung for 3 EVERY turn 2. sliderunner swung for 4 MOST of the times on 3.

List is here, on mobile or else I'd type it out: http://sales.starcitygames.com//deckdat ... ckID=91204

I'd cut the 2 rablemastrrs for a 2nd heelcutter main and a 4th outburst.

My sb would probably get changed to something like this:
[deck]
2 flamewake Phoenix
2 magma spray
1 rending volley
2 exquisite fire craft
2 hall of triumph
4 roast
1 arc lightning
1 Chandra

helps put g1s when you are on the draw a bit in your favor if you can drop it. i wanted another card for control decks as well. rabble just felt slow, i felt like i nevefr wanted to cast one on turn 3. outpost siege got replaced because i no longer liked it vs abzan, and i never felt comfortable casting it against control.

rabble also bad in the mirror.

based on the pt today i expect mono red, control, abzan and jeskai decks. eidolon seems good vs all of these

My line of thinking was to stall as long as I could until I could clear his board. The idea of getting a spell out of his hand seemed right at the time. I'd rather him trigger towards on my end step than on a huge swing

Atarka Sligh

I wild slashed the mentor because my play was to draw protection spells out of his hands. I was on the stall with green hornets tokens so I didn't want him to be able to set up a lethal attack giving a mentor or seeker pro green.

The announcers messed up a bit, there was a dice on the mentor tokens that represented there two mentor tokens in play. So it looked like a double block from their perspective, but really it was abbot on one, Hornet on the other.

I have a sneaking suspicion Mantis Rider might be popular this weekend, so idk if I'd want to cut a lightning strike. Although lightning strike is pretty poor vs gr devotion and the 4th wild slash would be better there as well as against mono red.

2-2 tonight beating gb elves and bant heroic (feature match - ill post VoD later) lost to UB Thopter Control (feature ill post VoD later) and atarka red

Deck feels good. hornets nest was great vs heroic. UB control seems good, i lost late in game 3 due to some crazy mana confluence draws. Destructive revelry was great in this matchup, lost to a tasigur in g2. g3 was iffy mana confluence draws and its possible I missed a winning line.

I ran 3 confluence and 2 temples...def cost me vs mono red. Going to run 2 confluence and 3 temples tomorrow.

The mirror match is what scares me. Not sure what I can do to shore it up... LP any thoughts on my list to help shore up the mono red matchup? Maybe I can cut the 3rd firedancer?

Rabble was good vs heroic and control, bad elsewhere. Might cut a 3rd rabble for a 3rd dragon fodder. It's also possible I want twin bolt or anger instead of arc lightning.

edit: http://www.twitch.tv/thewastelandgaming/b/680942822 heroic match (really good match imo) starts around 1:00:00, and the UB control match is around 1:50:00. would love feedback on the control match..would you have kept my opener?

Did you ever have a turn 1 where your only 1 drop was a berserker? I could see it being a 2 zurgo /1 berserker split.

How were the two dragon fodders?

What was your SB strategies for the matchups? Looks like you don't even need to SB for jeskai (assuming you had what I posted)

Nice job on the finish

We have randomly tested it, it sure make mulling better. I think it will go into effect as well. However it doesn't influence my decision to mull 7 card hands. I pretty much mull every 1 land hand I don't care how many 1 drops it has.

You guys are crazy for running more than 2 confluences

I think you shod keep 4 abbot. It's honestLy such a powerful turn two play that most of the time I don't care what gets exiled. I find myself jamming it on three a lot in hopes to hit a land, if I do I can dash in a berserker which feels so good. And if I whiff, I know I'm one card closer to hitting a land drop.

I don't think Become Immense is actually good. If you cut it and add the 3rd berserker you'd have the list I have been playing for a week. It's like you said, the games you have a 1 drop are so drastically different than the games you don't

Are you guys control players adapting the thopter styles? Mine are a lot more jace focused. MDU, what are control decks online looking like?

My list from the old thread. Been testing fine.

[deck]
4 swiftspear
3 lightning berserker
2 zurgo
4 abbot
2 flamewake

2 dragon fodder

4 stoke
4 firecraft
4 command
4 lightning strike
3 searing blood
3 wild slash

12 mountain
4 foothills
2 mana confluence
2 temple
1 forst
[/deck]

Command is the nuts, but I really dislike taking the turn off to cast an outburst vs abzan and ub control.

Do you guys really like rabble master? Post board abzan has infinite ways to kill them. It's possible the flamewakes could just be two rabbles.

MDU, I have played close to 150 games with Abbot now, and the reward is often worth the risk. I have no issues running him out on t2 just to setup a big t3 atarks command attack, Granted I am playing a less token oriented build and one with more 1-drops. If you play him on t5, you can cast stoke off the reveal thanks to convoke, and flipping a Firecraft is literally like winning the lottery.

Jasper nice job on the finish let's talk about some of the cards.

How was rabble master for you?

Was the become immense necessary? Did it ever win you games you had no business winning?

Mana base - too many mana confluences?

Really glad to be discussing burn with you again.


This is not a burn deck, this is atarka red from the past two seasons that cut a 1 drop and become immense and added a burn spell. Control is on the rise, and this deck gets pushed out due to the tokens, then a bigger red deck comes along. Cycle continues.
