i like naya since you can play some nice sideboard enchantments with commune. like rule of law and anti burn hate. stony silence for affinity and tron. smallpox is sweet though in a jund version. decisions
Okay so with cruise and such gone blue is done. Its back to a Jund version, which could be decent in this meta. Naya is also a possibility with mystic mentor coming out. Card seems strong against junk which is the new pod.
One card in fate reforged has got me into rebuilding this deck: monastery mentor. They say if you can get 8x of the same card (with young pyro) you can have a consistent deck. It even triggers upon casting seismic assault, and it is very good with flame jab + loam (and flame jab seems good right now with delver everywhere). Thoughts?
Yep Naya with Commune to the gods , mentor and YP will be sweet. I just pray that cruise and dig get banned. Really the entire meta is going to be based around if they get banned. If they don't no point in not having blue for them.
Scavenging Ooze, Eternal Witness and Courser of Kruphix can all do nice things for much less than tarmogoyf. I would say courser probably the best of the bunch for lifegain and unboltable body. But the other two are possible sideboard or maindeck as 1-2 of
Choke is just so meh cause of all the lands it doesnt hit. 4 sulfur falls, mountains, colonnades and such. If you have an opening to drop something i rather it be assault. Once thats in play its hard to lose unless you were already screwed
Honestly i have found junk and pod a good matchup. Certainly favorable since they don't have much disruption outside decay. If they are landing Rhino and you don't have assault online you probably lose, but that shouldn't happen much since that will be like turn 4-5. Maybe you should run some Faithless looting. I think its one of the best cards in the deck if you use 2-3 Cruise.
As far as bug its pretty hard to play bug with a RRR enchantment being the key to the deck
ii used to play bloom titan. it hits its 4th land before it wins a good portion of the time. and it requires specific colors which can be an issue. ghost quarter doesnt cost the opponent a land drop often since many decks have several basics. like minimum 3 from many. uwr cant win on 3 land so continuing to do so wouldnt change much. regardless they both best ruins i think. i rather have desolate lighthouse in rug to find gas
id cut electrolyze first among non lands. tec edhe cant be cut. its super strong vs tron uwr and others like bloom titan or even jund. im always glad to have two so i can find it quick. i like your list as far as a more controlling version goes. i just love having multiple strong threats. and cruise is another card that protects your other threats from counters and discard
im trying 4 thought scour out now. the card is just so strong with cruise and it lets you instadraw loam and mill 4 cards by itself. just crazy power. i do want to try e witness or snapcaster in the deck for consistency
