So, for Peatland I don't think it's good news for Jund or Rock.
I'm wondering if Jund Shadow could play a playset of this. It furthers the plan and there's no Gurmag delving. 4x Bauble, 4x Wraiths and 4x Horizons could be sexy, especially as it helps bring down the life total for Shadow.
Or the land base may be too tight, I don't know. I think as of now the Peatland only looks realistic for this Shadow deck, it's going to be bad for the rest of the midrange fair decks.
He telegraphed his serum pretty badly when he bottomed both cards immediately.
He was at 1 life left, 2 cards in hand. He had 1x shadow on board. I was at 7 life with a 1x big goyf and 1x shadow. I dont double block and he concedes as he would have dismembered me. Apparently a lot of people would have double blocked. I dont like the idea of doing tbr in a grindy matchup but I guess some people do.
Got 40 in store credit going 4 and 0 against a janky brew, kci, naya zoo and grixis shadow.
I saw the list from defish on mtggoldfish. 3 maindeck lotv, 1 k command. I think I kept the sideboard the same except shaving 1 cb for 1x grim lavamancer and 1x anger instead of languish
Deck performed well all night.
I have a question about the grixis shadow matchup vs death shadow jund
He sideboarded out 3x mishra baubles, 2x bolts and something else. He kept in 2x battlerages. That's shocking and wrong, right? He was pretty adamant about it and even was a little condescending about it. Was he right? Id like to know since I play both decks
I figured you never boarded out baubles as it smooths out your draws and makes up for playing 17 lands.
Man, you're obviously doing something right, as you're topping tournaments.
I played against one of the guys who recently got first place in the SCG tournament at my store. Game 3 I made a mistake scrying to the bottom a steam vents I needed for my Shadow against him as Hollow One in game 3. I instantly regretted it the second I bottomed it. The tiny decisions you make in Grixis multiple turns ago can be disastrous. I feel like Jund Shadow has less of that.
There isn't that much info on an expansive sideboard with Jund Shadow and 4C shadow. I would love to see one and write it down.
Ben Jones twitter account really helped me board correctly with Grixis. Just need enough references.
You talking about the constricting mana very much happened to me against Hardened Scales. I had a very large shadow and two Goyfs looking at tokens from my opponent.
I very much needed 2x green mana, one for traversing Ghor-Clan and the other to play him on Shadow. I couldn't do that, my mana was too messed up. My opponent had Ballista on 1 so I needed it right then and there.
I think you made a great decision in playing DSJ instead.
