    How the deck gets abused, in case you didn't catch it:
    On my play on turn 1: Recantation phazes in, then gets a counter. On my opponent's turn, I sacrifice it to bounce a land/permanent. This is either EOT or in response to something. It phazes out when it's sacrificed, so moving into my turn 2, it comes back again, gets a second counter, and so on. Rinse repeat. My opponent is land/permanent locked from turn 1, and never gets his enchantment.

    On my draw, I don't get my enchantment until my 2nd turn. This lets the opponent hit 2 mana, twice, before getting land locked.

    01 Madmanquail :: Thrun, the Last Troll / Devil's Play // Exploration
    6-0
    Exploration lets you hit 3 lands before my recantation takes over. Then you dwindle back down to 0-1. Troll finishes from there.

    02 WhammeWhamme
    :: Emrakul, the Aeons Torn / Nature's Claim // Sneak Attack
    6-0
    Sneak attack hurts - but only once. On my second turn I drop needle and start abusing recantation. You can Nature's Claim Recantation to get sneak attack and not use it, or you can Claim my Needle to be able to use Sneak without having it.

    To get both, you have to make me bounce 7 permanents to discard Em and shuffle up claim. All I have to keep you from is 15 mana for the hardcast, and I can bounce a massive amount when I've run out of board/hand room. This makes you ditch/shuffle/draw lands and gives you your 2nd claim around turn 30. Troll has done his business by then.

    03 nerdyjoe :: Hammerheim / Pyroblast // Crystalline Nautilus
    6-0
    Hammerheim/Nautilus is nice, and abuses the phaze as I do. Needle can name Hammerheim to stop the sac, so you only get Nautilus a couple of times before I lock you out.

    04 Danxor :: Dromar's Charm / Aura Mutation // Nyx Weaver
    6-0
    Another enchantment sac. Nice. Needle stops Weaver from recurring. I sac Recantation in response to Mutation. Take a couple of hits, but I lock you out of mana to let Troll sneak through.

    05 tomsloger :: Beast Within / Elixir of Immortality // Spatial Binding
    6-0
    Needle stops binding. I keep you off of 3 mana for beast, and then off of 2 mana for Elixir. Troll recovers the ground lost to life gain.


    06 plopfil :: Echoing Truth / Pithing Needle // Assemble the Legion
    0-6
    I had my eye on Legion for a bit. It's a beast. Needle stops recantation shenangians, and legion outclasses the troll.


    07 Chess_76
    :: Elixir of Immortality / Abzan Advantage // Archetype of Endurance
    6-0
    The boar hits my skull. Needle stops Elixir before it can reshuffle even once, so Advantage only gives you one more swing, putting me at 7. After that, it's lock and troll.


    08 Feyd_Ruin :: Troll Ascetic / Pithing Needle // Recantation
    XX

    09 Heinsun :: Steal Enchantment / Spatial Binding // Chromanticore
    6-0
    You never hit the 3 mana for binding, and Recantation sacs in response to the Stealing.

    WOTC quite often makes changes that the player base doesn't initially respond well to, but they know that it's for the health of the game long term. Was the "tuck" rule change one of a similar vein, or was the outpouring response unexpected? Has the reaction made you reevaluate the change?

    (Of note: I agree with the change and already played with this as a house rule anyways)

    So is it the fact that I am in Korea that is causing the problem?

    Oh no. Everyone has the nonlatin check. Many of the korean spam posts were done through foreign proxies. We wouldn't discriminate based on country anyways.
    I've added you to the bypass, so you shouldn't have any issue Smile
