    Delirium skeins is not as bad as it seems. I like a lot against etron, ancestral visions and leyline and against decks that accumulate many cards. I think it is obligatory 3 or 4 copies in sb

    nezumi seems interesting but I think there are better creatures in this deck. I will prove it

    Hey everyone !!

    I'd like to play 8rack, but I can't build the full version of the deck right now. The idea is to start with a "budget" version, and then to update it later
    Have you any ideas about the starting list I could use with a 300€ budget ?

    Thanks for your help <3

    Olivier

    the pox of legacy plays with 25 lands. eight are colorless. in modern we could not try 4 muta 2 GQ? 4/4 I know it's very risky

    pack rat does not convince me, it is usually very slow. I'm thinking of the spirith of labyrinth, copter, or squadron hawk

    This is my list that I tested on xmage. the truth very good results. I am a current player of 8 rack but this deck has always caught my attention. also it is always good to change the deck. Which pairings do you consider worse and also better? Any suggestions on the list?

    i think surgical extraction is better to cage against company decks . cage is a "hate card" in second game . qasali, decay , reclamation stage , etc. delirium is bad and mediocre for my reason

    4 urborg and 4 muta?

    I do not like to force the mulligan to have 2 urborg in hand. playing four copies sometimes leave two in the initial hand. I think with 3 urborg is more than enough but only a reflection of me. if it serves you, I've been playing the deck for two years and many times I've lost games for double urborg or double mutavault.

    I hope it brings you good results. by the way, the fetch can go well. if you do mulligan and put something in the bottom of the library .. with fetch can change !! Hahaha !! Greetings . I am very scrupulous but it has its logic

    Hello, this week I'm Going to play the playoff of a tournament series that warrants invitations for a bigger tournament for top2 and there's a very limited range of decks that I can face, so I was thinking that maybe 8-rack would be a good choice if tuned well for it.
    The playoff is in the format that wizards used on the PT (1st and 2nd enter directly to the semifinals, 3rd and 4th on quarterfinals and so on)

    The matchups would be:
    1st match (I choose first if I play or draw): Winner of match between Burn or RUG Scapeshift (the old version) (most likely to be Burn as it's favored)
    2nd match (opponent chooses first if he plays or draws): RG Scapeshift or 4C Humans (or bant)
    Then finals, which doesn't really matter as getting top2 is enough

    What are your thoughts about tuning 8-rack for this matches? Would it be favored?
    I don't think there would be much to change on recent lists for the Valakut/Scapeshift matchups

    My biggest concern is the Humans matchup, in which I don't know exactly how to tune the deck for it. What would be your suggestions? How can we tune the list to consistently beat CoCo aggro decks? I'm thinking that Grafdigger's Cage is a good option against CoCo and also, as much Bontu's Last Reckoning as I can fit in the board. But beyond that I'm having a hard time finding what could give a gamebreaker advantage.

    Then, the burn matchup, are you having more success choosing to play or to draw?
    Would you think that playing 4 Collective Brutality main deck could be a good choice for this expected matches and good enought to give some advantage on the burn matchup? What else would you suggest?


    I think the best against human or vizier is flaying tendrils and Night of Souls' Betrayal. The cage is very good but you lose the raven's crime. I think surgical is better. in theory is a good pairing for 8 rack and you have many chances to win. it depends a lot on whether you respond to the first mana accelerator that plays you, smallpox is also key and if you play two in a row I think the game is yours
