    Grim Lavamancer is my go-to for poor Mongoose metas. I wouldn't cut him though with Land Tax Control on the horizon. That deck is going to be scary as all get out.

    I can second that - Delver can win on 1 land, but it really wants at least two (usually a third held up as a fetch) to be able to cast multiple cards a turn to gain tempo.

    What about a small pox land tax deck with Liliana?

    It's good after you cast your first brainstorm. Usually I will lay 2 lands and brainstorm fetching with my third. Sometimes I do it with 1 and a fetch but it's usually the former. Not having to tap out main phase to cast him is huge; you can't really cast goyf on two, because you leave yourself open without counters. In that sense, they almost have the same cmc

    I also like it a lot against the control decks as another threat.

    Once the meta shifts toward more control, I might put it in the md. Otherwise, I like it in the sb.

    Yeah Force comes out against most of the fair decks that are going to attrition you.

    So guys, what about a 12 creature build with 3 tarmo and 1 ven clique? I've tested it in the sideboard and it's been something I consistently board in against almost every deck. It can be cast off of wasteland in a pinch as well. Usually by the late game, you have 3 mana.

    Well it gives you ways, in addition to delver, to beat the Knight Decks. Not losing to Knight would be nice.

    What do you guys think of Jace's Phantasm in this deck?

    I agree that it's really hard to play in events; even casually it can take a while to figure out the pile you need to win, but at a loud distracting tournament with 5+ rounds it's next to impossible.

    It's a poor bring in vs maverick - their manabase isn't easily attacked with wastelands and bar double or triple waste you should be fine. You're the aggro deck, you really don't have time to play loam and get the full effect.

    Most decks in the control section that are on 3+ colors. Tempo mirrors especially; team america, grixis tempo, etc. Mostly it's there to beat decks that run 3+ colors and also run wastelands, and actively want to deny you resources. Those would be decks like Aggro Loam or the Rock, etc. Recurring wastelands are only amazing if they don't run many basics, so two colors decks mostly go out the window. It gets stronger the longer the games goes, and stronger the more your opponent wants to attack your manabase. Don't board it in for games that should be ending pretty promptly, because Loam is slow and negative tempo.

    Thoughts on singleton snapcaster? I mean most dismissed it as too mana intensive, but I could see it as a nice singleton.

    Another realization about stifle vs pierce. Over the course of a long game, they get to draw more lands than you do, and you draw more spells. That's great until you find that Lands trade with your Dazes and Pierces.

    So you guys think that this whole Pierce thing has just been a meta thing and Stifle has been over all better all along?

    Only change a winning team to make it better Wink

    Thalia is the nuts. That card is sooooo good. Play her. Love her. I wish I could run her in RUG sometimes.
