Dec 4, 2015I do acknowledge that i did have easy matchups that night. But I did play against fish 3 times in the IQ. Pyro never really mattered after turn 2 against them when i played it main. Between 4 Stone, 2 Ugin, and the Rending Volley in the board, i only dropped one game against them. Again, I'll be writing up a proper (or slightly less *****ty) one tonight for that event.Posted in: Tier 2 (Modern)
Dec 4, 2015I've been playing with Explore lately to a fairly good amount of success locally (2-1 and 3-0 in local weeklies and a 2nd place finish at a 44 player IQ). My 75:Posted in: Tier 2 (Modern)
Most notable differences being the removal of the Pyroclasms to the board and the inclusion of Explore (mostly in place of the Relic).
I found relic to be mostly dead or too often a 2 mana cantrip, much like Explore. Unlike explore, it can't be used to turn any hand relying on a turn 1 Stirrings into a turn 3 tron, help recover from the tempo loss of a Fulminator Mage, or open up a turn 3 Ugin/OStone&break/Newlamog.
I'm just on my lunch now, so I'll try to finish the big one this evening, but the last modern Monday went as follows:
Round 1 against UW(b) control
Rocked the match hard. Actually lived the dream: turn 1 mine-star, turn 2 power plant-explore into Tower, map, search up another tower, turn 3 Newlamog.
Round 2，against Soul Sisters
Anyone who's played this matchup knows how one-sided it is. Even without pyro main, OStone and ugin still wreck small white chicks. Pyro came game 2, but my opponent kept a ropier hand and didn't hit a second land until after i had a live karn.
Round 3 against Junk.
Game 1 was a bit closer than I'm comfortable with. He layed out 2 Goyfs, which i followed up with Newlamog taking 2 lands. He drops Liliana, killing Newlamog, and attacks me down to 8. Ancient stirrings showed me an OStone and he scooped here.
Game 2，he led with a birds and proceded to miss a second land (and subsequently the Fulminator). He scooped turn 3 after i dropped (i believe) a wurmcoil.
6-0 in games that night. Also faced positive matchups all night which helped.
Edit: Apparently I just straight-up forgot to include lands in my list. Not that 90% of it is any different than any other list.

The issue with Emrakul is, well, if they run one, then yes, a single Crypt or Spellbomb or whatever actually works. If they're running more than one Eldrazi (Sneak and Show, 12 post, etc), crypt isn't enough. Because the combo only happens at sorcery speed and only mills one card at a time, Emrakul will always reshuffle. I can certainly get behind running a singleton Spellbomb/crypt main, but only with the understanding that it alone isn't going to be enough for multiple eldrazi.
Dec 7, 2014While I played the living wish build above last week, two weeks prior I had been playing a dark punishing list (basically punishing with a black dual and bog over my two basics) which served me quite well. All I'm currently missing is an extra zealous persecution from the board. I'll probably be playing that next weekend, and I'll probably update wkth a list later this evening.Posted in: Midrange
Dec 6, 2014Poppeleseed posted a message on How many fully completed Legacy decks do you have?Right now, I've got 2, Maverick (switching between Punishing, Dark, and GW) and a rotating combo deck, Currently Omni Tell, but switches between some Show and Tell build and Storm. Realistically, I should be able to have both Omni Tell and DDFT togther, but for the life of me, I'm struggling to find a second playset of Gitaxian Probe, of all thingsPosted in: Legacy (Type 1.5)
Dec 5, 2014I've been in a huge maverick mood lately. I've actually been tweaking my build/list a couple times a week for the last month or so. Before I had to take a break, I was playing Punishing Maverick, which I'm still hugely fond of, but the appearance of Young Pyroman and Swiftspear makes things a little awkward. My first tournament back, I tried Punishing with a small black splash. I decided to try something a little different the next week (at least for me) GW Living WishPosted in: Midrange
We only ended up with 7, but one guy dropped after round 1. No big deal, I'm still easing back into the game, and this is a good transition for me.
Round 1, against Nick with Dredge.
Basically, Nick had garbage luck all day with his dredges. This slowed him down enough for living wish into Bog to be an actual win. Gaddock Teeg kills off dread return, and Ooze, while a little slow, ended the game. Game 1, he went all in and whiffed on a breakthrough. Living Wish for Bog ended him there. Game 2, I kept a hand of Plains, Mom, Swords x2, Thalia x2. Unfortunately, his Therapy's really did work. Game 3, I was able to get Ooze out and slowly eat his grave until he scooped.
Round 2, against (other) Nick, with Infect
I was scouting a little bit before the event and saw the infect deck fanned out on the table. I opted to fit Melira into my board for this reason. Sadly, I didn't get a chance to cast her at all. Game 2, I brought Melira in (then I'd have 5 virtual copies instead of the 4), and naturally, I drew the living wish instead of the GSZ . The deck is kinda fast, and when you can't find your out or play really loosely (like wasting swords and wastelands on unpumped/non-lethal attackers), things don't go well for you
Round 3, against Gabe, with Reanimator
Karakas is kinda good, I hear. The mix of Karakas, Swords, and Sword of Fire and Ice game 2 (when he brought in Inkwell Levaithan) made things pretty solid. Knight is a beautiful thing
I'm torn between this build and good ol' Punishing Mav for the "Big Legacy" next weekend. I haven't played anything on a larger level in a while. Any thoughts?
May 14, 2014We're going to pin this thread this time around. On that note, I'll archive the previous set discussion threads.Posted in: Legacy (Type 1.5)
Please keep all Single Card Discussion topics either here or in appropriate deck threads until the full set is released.
I like Dack. I hope I'm not the only one who wants to do terrible things with him and Notion Thief. Shame that the earliest they can reasonably drop together is turn 3, and even that doesn't really win you the game.
May 4, 2014Seeing the Deathblade mirror got me to leave. On the list of things I'd rather watch than that mirror is apparently Doc McStuffins.Posted in: Legacy (Type 1.5)
Then again, I think most mirrors would yield this response. Unless we luck out an see a Solidarity or 12-post mirror in the future.
May 4, 2014I don't know how I missed this 3 weeks ago, but I'm closing it. Ban list discussion belongs in the official thread here: http://www.mtgsalvation.com/forums/the-game/legacy-type-1-5/178372-legacy-ban-list-discussion-thread-read-op-beforePosted in: Legacy (Type 1.5)
