Quote from toffee »Hi mates, I want to try this list, because in my 2 tournments where I made top8/top4 I saw that Lightning Bolt is a poor card right now.
I don't want to cut the combo PFire + GotBurnwillows..
I got started from the list of QBTURTLE15, which is making excellent results. In comparison though, I want to play Dark Confidant (there are a lot of Grixis in my meta) and PFire instead of Bolt.
What do u think about the list?
List looks fine. Don't ever cut the Punishing Fire combo in my opinion. It's the main reason to play this deck over the other Blue midrange decks.
I think I mentioned earlier that I thought Lightning Bolt was underwhelming so I'm glad I'm not the only one. Your list looks fairly similar to mine (the one in my signature is outdated). The main difference is I only run one K Command and instead run a 2nd Sylvan (I feel good if I have a resolved Sylvan) and I run 4 Thoughtseize and 3 Hymn instead of your 3/4 split. Also I have a Maelstrom Pulse in there somewhere. I'd suggest one too since it's a "catch all" and can deal with resolved Planeswalkers, Gurmag Angler, etc.
At the same time, I stopped playing this due to so much combo in my meta (over half the room), but if your meta is mostly Delver and fair decks, you should be fine.
