    I also thought that would be good to have Tormod's Crypt in order to transmute into it, pushing to storm to deal with it. Although I wouldn't remove Ruric since is one of my key cards against burn. The addition of kessing wolf trap is nuts against them since they can't just chump block him and be fine =).

    I guess, the best advice is to tokenize it and give it a try, o watch a lot of replays.

    I bealive the deck is strong, but no match is an auto-win neither loose.

    I play BURN and 8 rack and I find Amulet Titan to be my strongest deck.

    Hope it helps you.

    I bealive you can start with 2 summoner's pact and have 4 tireless tracker main board. I agree SP are quite expensive right now...

    @davius Great idea to have an working budget amulet titan deck.

    @davious go for the stream! the previus series you did where very helpfull.

    Amulet Titan is cool because it has so many 50/50 matchups that is hard to say the match is lost before it starts. Im sticking on it for the tournaments.

    For now Im pushing the first match to be hard devoted on combo, I bealive is the better choice.

    Anyone is still having Chalice of the Void in their 75??

    I really like the idea of his list!

    yesterday I got my best result on a tournament with the deck, ended up 11th place, 4-2, 3 mm17 boosters as price =D.
    I lost 1 match due to bad luck purely, the other one was against Eldrazi & Taxes, the match was very complex for both, I ended up loosing but I could have won.

    The decks I had beat where 1 bye (lol), 1 Burn (2-0), Gideon Zoo(2-1), Titanshift (2-1).

    I had tested 2 cards that where not relevant into the matchups I won.
    2 Saheeli Rai
    2 Sentinel Totem

    The sentinel helped a bit with the scry, but the matches I faced I wasn't relevant.

    Saheeli Rai never show Up in one game I draw 2 on my initial hand and ended up mulligan due to ir was a 1 lander. I still bealive is a powerfull card, but requires more testing.

    If I would change something in the deck I would take away saheeli in place of 2 roast. But I bealive in the combo capacity of the deck and the approach of increasing the combo capacity of the deck is a better idea.

    One opponent thoght I had a <card>Sejiri Steppe</card>. I bealive it could fit I we go to the route 29 lands...

    Happy Ramping!!

    I have a question regarding Azusa, lost but seeking, Amulet of Vigor and Lightning Bolt and ETB tapped Lands.

    I don't know If this was asked before, but imagine the following situation:

    I have azusa and an amulet in play. I'm about to cast my first land, and it is a tolaria west. Amulet triggers, and my opponent have a window to kill azusa with lightning bolt, and making the turn full of sadness.

    That's ok?

    It is better to play untapped lands first to avoid this.

    Sorry guys if this is too basic.

    I just want to share a Turn 2 kill that I had on friday against my brother who plays Mardu Restore Balance. Deck that is really unfavored from my point of view.
    I had to mulli to 6 due lack of lands.
    My hand was: Gemstone Mine, Explorer, Azusa, Summoners pact, Selesnya S, Amulet.

    I was on the draw.

    T1: Draw explore. Gemstone- Sakura.

    T2. I draw forest.
    With gemstone I played Amulet.
    Played two times selesnya sanctuary (bounce)to cast Azusa. 1 mana floating.

    With Azusa I played 1 time. To cast explore.

    Draw second amulet. From here I realized I was about to do the turn 2 kill.

    I played the Amulet then generate 8 mana from Selesnya S due to double amulet triggers.

    Fetch for titan and etc...

    I know I was stupidly lucky.

    But I just draw almost all the 4of cards of the deck.
    Never did a turn two kill before without summer bloom.

    Sad for my brother, but he beat me a lot on the kitchen table games when I visit him lol.

    Regards!

    Last week I went to my LGS to play double FNM with the following list.



    I won against Esper Midrange, Burn, Lantern Control, Junk. And lose against Naya Zoo and Elves, against Elves I did a misplay, could have played Ugin but decided no because he was all untapped and played a Titan through a Pact. Ugin is a great addition to the deck, big threat and clean the board for us <3.

    Against Zoo, was kind of overwelming the amount o creatures. I decided to remove 1 Kozilek's Return in order to add 1 firespout.

    Hive Mind helped me to win at least 3 games against esper midrange, junk and burn. Is a great win con even in sideboard games if the opponent lack of green and or blue.

    Against Lantern I managed to land a turn 3 Titan with amulet and scout in play, and Tracker did all the job on the second game.

    I'm cool with the 2 explores and 2 relic, storm and GDS are still a thing here, I agree with Davius regarding the flex slots, It is up to the local meta.

    Kozilek best characteristic is: instant & colorless. Is capable to kill manland in answer to cranial plating. Also Kills Mirran crusader, think that firespout don't.

    Myself run 1 pyro 2 kozilek on sideboard (and 2 dismember). Aggro decks are required to be stomped.

    When we will certainly know the dictamination about this, some judges I know already told me that vesuva becomes just a mountain.

    On another topic, someone tried sideboarding Ugin, the spirit dragon against blood moon decks?

    If you see affinity as a big amount of creatures needed to be wipe with damnation and stuff you would be investing too much resources in removal and not being able to skirmish damage. With the spot removal /artifact and creature, you can keep your quick creatures (even gifted aetherborn) and deal damage to being able to win by attrition.

    Im gathering the cards to assemble this deck.

    I find that you use too many resources into killing their artifacts.

    As sideboard I would try to do only few changes to the deck in sideboard, in order to increase the pressure.

    I thought a situatuation very possible, having 1 blue mana open, wait with 1 swang song and an Opt in hand. No bloodmoon, then Opt.

    =D

    I think is worth to give it a try.

    It is an strong creature, it can be the bane of UW decks, I guess they don't side in wrath effects, just paths.

    This guy and a Sigarda is GG also =P.

    I'm not testing the deck atm, I had to return some borrowed cards =(!!! missing it!
