Quote from thomeyis »I think a D grade is pretty generous.
Quote from CloudKick3r »I agree with the vast majority of your assessments. I especially liked that you took a stance to slow the hype train on cards like Gideon and From Beyond (I really don't see why this is so highly-regarded either). I also love that you defended new Kiora and gave Bring to Light the praise it deserves...
Quote from CloudKick3r »I will say, though, that I too would rate a large percentage of your D's as F's.
Quote from CloudKick3r »Oh, and I will be picking up some Lumbering Falls and maybe even BW manland as well, despite your D grading. I totally agree that they're not Creeping Tar Pit and Celestial Colonnade, but they fix, and provide a clock in a grindier game while avoiding sorcery speed removal. In decks that are ok with play 2-4 ETBT lands, I don't think these deserve a D, personally.

... if you're already playing the best color then you may as well do the abusive things yourself.
Quote from sleeper_agent007 »Drana is fetching 25$ a pop. If that isn't inflated as ****, I don't what is... I don't understand the prices on these things, I swear.

You helped me reassess Oblivion Sower and Void Winnower, in particular. And that Abzan Drain looks FUN!
Quote from cme »FWIW, I have never seen Dragonmaster Outcast do anything useful in a game either.
Quote from saturated_wombat »Thanks for following up on this. What do you think about Bring to Light and Kiora?
Quote from Xyx »And 3-drops are better than 2-drops, 5-drops better than 4-drops and titans are dwarfed by primordials. I'm not saying the card isn't good, but I'd like to learn how it follows from "cards that cost more are better" that even CMCs take up more than 50%. I would mostly care about removal. Void Winnower shuts off the good wraths, but the best point removal ever has uneven CMC and most of the recent wraths cost 5.
Quote from Xyx »Yeah, I gave it a try with fetches and Sun Titans and Sakura-Tribe Elders and stuff and it didn't disappoint.

I enjoy playing UG Stasis/Stax decks
Quote from calderstrake »This thread seemed like the best place to keep the answer to this question, at least for now.
What is the best range of number of basic lands to have in a 60-card deck to have strong confidence that you can use the dual lands and not have them ETBT a high percentage?
I'm looking at a list with 24 lands: 15 basic, 9 nonbasic; 4 of the nonbasic are the BFZ dual lands. Any idea what a formula would look like for this sort of situation?
