All hail croissant block.

EDIT: @ RootaVootaZoop: Dead guy still places highly and regularly in top tournies, and has the ability to beat any match up with fairly high consistency.
Quote from D3@DI think Deadguys main problem today is the current powerlevel/popularity of Zoo and red aggro strategies. When both players go into top deck mode, the deadguy player will be drawing a whole lot more useless cards.
Quote from jimbo_29Yeah new primer and we are in proven competitive, thanks D3@D
@ D3@D why not run thoughtseize? you have Unlmited Duals so life loss shouldn't be a problem?
and I also think that the rack and Misra's Factory should be included in the primer.
Edit: 100, woop!
Quote from DalkonCledwinJust a slight nit pick, but Brad Nelson's deck that went into the top-8 of Grand Prix Columbus 2010.... is actually a Rock deck, not a Deadguy Ale deck. At least that is how I assess it. The two types of decks play very differently. Deadguy Ale is traditionally BW Suicide / Aggro. Where as The Rock can more accurately be considered BG (sometimes with a splash of White) Aggro-Control with more leanings on Control than Aggro.
The strategies of the decks are very different and one plays slower than the other. Considering Brad's deck a part of this primer is confusing to me at the least and downright wrong at the most.

RE: trouble against zoo/burn.
I think if these are dominating your metagame, try packing Cop: RED, Gerrard's Verdict and Vampire Nighthawk etc. Stuff that gains you life and/or prevents them from targeting your face. Or just not play this deck. Because, clearly these MU's are making life hard for deadguy players right now.
And I think that creatures such as Goyf, Tombstalker, Nyxathid etc. are crucial in these MUs as they got a body thats not directly into bolt range. Maybe an aproach more similar to Eva Green is the way to go these days. Pack more muscle over Dark Confidant's card drawing?
Quote from RootaVootaZoopIt would be interesting to try an all-flyer version of Deadguy (Tombstalker, Vampire Nighthawk, Hypnotic Specter, with maybe Abyssal Persecutor or Bitterblossom) with Moats as the aggro answer for things like Goblins and Zoo.
Quote from ExiledWolfThat could be a good idea. I think I subconsciously made myself forget about that card because of its price tag Tutors could replace Bob since CA won't be completely necessary if an entire deck shuts down. Turn 4 REALLY worries me though. I mean, at least against Goblins and Merfolk you can turn 1 an Engineered Plague.
Quote from RootaVootaZoopThe :symw::symw: in Moats casting cost makes the turn 4 worries even more valid. It'd probably be too slow against the decks you really need it against but a bomb against some of the midrange decks Deadguy slaughters anyway. Switching to Mox Diamond instead of Dark Ritual takes you a whole different direction with the deck and probably moves it off of Deadguy completely.
This game is just so amazing in terms of the variety of options it offers and the tradeoffs they create.
Quote from D3@DWhat do we board inn and out vs Mono Blue Merfolk? its tough MU with their counter magic and massive amount of critters that are generally larger than ours.
And the more I play with the deck, the more I want to splash green for Goyfs. Jötun Grunt just seems to die whenever I need him the most.
