    I'll drop combo forever and play Jund for the rest of eternity if they ban SSG this go around. Ain't going to happen.

    Ähm, you are aware, that there were a couple of Jund bans in the past?

    So if you had to make the mana base without fetches how would you do it?

    Rly? The 4 Bloodstain Mires are not that expensive to skip them...

    However, due to how the deck work, there are no really good replacements, cause fast lands are garbage for TTB, Checklands don't go well with the Temples and more basics are not helpful either.

    How do you board vs GDS? I know chalice is a must but do you add in the blood moons since they are greedy? I feel like I struggle with sidboarding in general

    OTP: Chalice + Moon
    OTD: Chalice + Axe

    This is at least how I board against this deck. Moon is to slow otd that it can really matter, so it only comes in otp.

    Greetings,
    Kathal


    Meh its not really about not buying the fetches its that they are currently in my GDS deck and I hate having to desleeve and ***** every time I want to play this deck and I'm too cheap to buy a second playset of mires.

    Has anyone considered running rabblemasters out of the board instead of the young pyros?

    From my experience we are 45/55 vs Abzan pre board and about 50-50 post board since we get great answers with izzet staticaster and last hope. I've never played the GB Tron matchup so no comment there.

    What was your 75? I didn't make day 2 playing GDS so I busted out grishoalbrand for Sunday and went 3-0-1 at the side event I played

    Liliana is a great stand-alone card but she really fits in in tap out style of decks where you rely on your "better" topdecks to close out the game. She has anti-synergy with counterspell decks in my opinion where you're looking to keep a handful of cards in order to answer the different things your opponent might play. This is why you don't' see her in grixis control decks but instead in decks like GBx.

    The problem is that your logic on why Ashiok is good is all wrong. You really can't say he helps exiling cards off the top because those cards are basically random and it would be the same if he exiled cards off the bottom. He could as well exile 3 lands and give your opponent gas.

    So been thinking about this deck lately. To me, it seems like BB is at odds with the rest of the deck. The creatures and multitude of spells want to play tempo but BB wants to grind. This is why there isn't a set list for the archetype. Some people focus more on the grinding side of BB and some people focus more on the tempo aspect of the faeries. Has anyone considered moving BB to the sideboard and going a straight tempo build in UB or maybe even grixis?

    Yeah this primer is really not looking good. Matchup info is like one of the more important things and its totally missing

    What's everyone's current opinion on Young Peezy in the SB and what match-ups do you think it shines in and why?

    FinalNub, do you think you can write up a quick sideboard guide for your current sideboard? Maybe for like the top 4 or 5 decks? I want to see your thought process for each match-up and the info would be greatly appreciated.

    Temple is your best turn 1 play if you don't have the nuts. I always side one out when on the draw but I would not run the deck without them

    Been seeing a lot of Young Pyromancerin sideboards lately. Can anyone explain what these are brought in for?
