You're probably right. Marauders stays on the bench i guess.Quote from rogerandover »Quote from d0su »]What a battle of attrition! It sounds like the entire world was against you, lol. Congratulations!
I'll have to keep an eye on Vance's Blasting Cannons, the flip side is just so strong. But what do you think about Angrath's Marauders? Could it maybe stand in for one of the other creatures, like Coalhauler Swine?
Thanks! It sure felt good to win the voltron way
I'll let you know about the blasting cannons as I test it. Angrath's Marauders sure has a good effect, but I don't think it's worth playing. 7cmc is really steep, especially tacked on a fragile body. Well, I guess you have to pay big dough to get such a good effect. If it had flash, I definitely play it
I got to cast my first Ixilan cards yeterday, and it was a good opportunity for this deck's strengths to really shine.
It was a 3-player game against Mishra stax and Nekusar wheels. Mishra locked up the game with an early Nether Void, enforcing Nekusar's mana screw and grinding everything to a snail's pace. Luckily, Shattering Spree works pretty well through a Nether Void, so I was able to keep the Mishra player in check, and I was able to out-grind everyone with Squee and Thawing Glaciers. A big Commune with Lava let me break out with O-Stone, and go for the combo kill with Star of Extinction!
Once upon a time, this deck was originally built to survive a playgroup full of MLD and hate. It was cool to see that side of the deck show itself again.
EDIT: Got in another game. Someone was forced to Pithing Needle my Hammer of Bogardan because it was keeping two players on lockdown
