Does anyone have any experience running Akroma, Angel of Fury in this GW hate bear build? You can play her for the morph cost then turn 4 play flickerwisp or restoration angel bouncing Akroma, then she returns to play morphed into the glorious angel she is.
I've seen a rare few GW hate bear lists top 8 modern events recently mainboarding 2x Akroma, if anyone has any experience with this deck please let me know what you think, those who are not running Akroma, is there any reason why you don't? With all the bounce it feels like an auto include to me, but I haven't been playing cards very long and sometimes think like a timmy.
Thanks in advance

Aug 17, 2013I want to run a version of your list tomorrow, can you provide advice on sideboarding, replacing the Lich (since I don't have one and friends are at gencon), and your experience or lack of experience with think twice in this list to help flip huntmaster back and forth.Posted in: Standard Archives
Thanks in advance.
Aug 9, 2013I've had very good luck with essence scatter in this format, I run into a plethora of creature decks at every store I visit, and essence scatter acts as a hard counter and excellent snapcaster target. I had the removal set very similar to your list for my first attempt at this deck to prevent from screwing up the counts too much, since you mentioned you had tested the deck and had some success I wanted to give it a fair shot before I included counter spells and more doom blades. I agree that 17 creatures in the sweet spot, thats what I run in RUG flash, however there are no farseek or grisly salvages in RUG.Posted in: Standard Archives
Aug 8, 2013Haven't played Deathrite Shaman with Snapcaster Mage or Scavenging Ooze, I figured with the Grisly Salvage that I'd have plenty of targets, but he might be better served as a sideboard card, coming in main deck for Snappy in certain match ups (like ones with very little removal where he can take the game over)Posted in: Standard Archives
I just felt like I needed an early play, and that playing Trackers and Salvages was overkill. You have 25 lands, no need for 6 dig spells...

Aug 7, 2013I've been running RUG flash for the last month, I ran the original list with Yeva, and Wolfir Avenger, but I added Scavenging Ooze.Posted in: Standard Archives
In my games Wolfir Avenger has been an all-star, if you leave mana up to regenerate him he is very difficult to eliminate.
I've struggled to deal with token strategies and some aggressive decks, control and midrange are free wins.
Moving forward I want to adjust the deck to deal with the current meta, so I was looking at the list you are currently running, but want to find a place for at least 3x Wolfir Avenger in the main.
What do you think? I prefer Avenger to Thragtusk, what do you think?
Jul 21, 2013I went 4-2 and finished 10th out of 36 at an event yesterday playing RUG Flash/Control, my creatures are 4Huntmaster of the fells 3Snapcaster Mage 3Yeva, Nature's Herald 1Progenitor Mimic and 4Wolfir Avenger.Posted in: New Card Discussion
I was thinking about playing Young Pyromancer in the deck, because other than the 16 creatures all my spells are instants and sorceries, mostly removal or draw spells, but no main deck walkers, enchantments or artifacts. My question is what would I remove? I was thinking of trying to play 3x young pyromancer maybe in place of the Yeva, nature's herald?
Also, does scavenging ooze have a place in this deck?
I haven't been playing all that long and deck building is still something I struggle with, the RUG Flash deck is actually a friends, I'll post the list below in a few mins. Thanks in advance.

Jun 6, 2013I like the Junk list you are running, however I play with paper cards, but the meta at my LGS is heavy aggro, so I think I might be able to play your list without adjustment. One guy plays re-animator, and one guy plays aristocrats, but everyone else is on naya blitz, or jund aggro, or something like that.Posted in: Standard Archives
I've been looking far and wide for something that can stand up to the hyper aggressive decks, last week I ran our naya aggro and got stomped due to not knowing when to mulligan. This week I might try your list, but I was hoping for any advice you would give me making the transition from online to paper. More removal? Less removal? I'm kind of new to magic, only been playing a year or so and just recently standard, so any advice is appreciated. Thanks
May 28, 2013UD5soul posted a message on [[Official]] What [deck] should I play/buy/get into threadHey everybody, I feel like I've stumbled upon a tremendous resource. I've been looking to get into Modern and Legacy for a while, and recently built a U/B Delver/Tombstalker deck for Modern that I'm happy with. Next bridge to cross is into Legacy. First a little about myself.Posted in: Legacy (Type 1.5)
I've collected Magic cards off and of for a long time, played ten years ago casually in high school, but only within the last year started playing often. However I love Magic, and I've built a decent collection, I play standard currently, so I have basically all the cards from M13 thru Dragon's Maze.
Looking forward to a Legacy deck I think I'd like to play black green control or something like that, eventually I'll have Goyfs and Bobs, but right now I don't. Some of the cards I do have I will list below. Some of the cards I might like to play include Deathrite Shaman, Vengevine, Bloodghast, Liliana of the Veil, Sorin Markov
I've got a little coin to but towards my deck, so I'm happy to spend some to create a deck that competes at my LGS at Legacy night. For reference, the first time I played modern with my budget deck I was happy to win once, so I'm not looking for miracles, but I do want to be competitive.
Thanks in advance.
