Quote from lordlukas »Hi Curd,
your latest decklist contains 20 lands, with many fetches on one hand, and ~6 cantrips on the other.
What is your opinion, do you happen to have mana screw? How often do you have to mulligan?
Quote from lordlukas »What about Valorous Stance? It may kill Tarmogoyfs and Tasigur, The Golden Fang and Rhinos, when Lightning Bolt may no more.
Quote from lordlukas »I could finally do some testing.
I played many matches against 4C-Gift and a WB discard deck, before side.
I could not win against the 4C-Gift, everytime loosing 1-2.
On the long run it takes advantage and I finish behind.
What is the best way to destroy graveyard strategies? Rest in Peace can hurt also our side and is a SB card.
Since graveyards are used a lot these days, I would like to find a card that can be main-deckable and synergic with our style.
Quote from Seraphinwolf »Again I feel we've come back to the need to focus on the "wham bam. Thank you m'am" potential. Is many instances that's a very good game strategy and the ability to switch to the midrange/control cards give the flexibility. The list still keep seeming more grindy than they need to be. The Prowess and the Unblockable seem sorely short.
Quote from Seraphinwolf »More Prowess in Origins coming.
Quote from Seraphinwolf »Can't block of they are tapped... Finally seeing an instant speed two mana tap that hits more than one AND Hibernates them.
Quote from Twanicus »At the risk of breaking format, id like to offer a decklist that ive been running for some time. It started out pure izzet for raw explosiveness, but as curd has stated, a glass connon will break every time when people figure you out. So i went Grixis.

In short, i added black for hand disruption and the raw card advantage that is dark confidant. It slows the deck down a lot, but it becomes a lot more resilient, particularly with bob out. Ive had a lot ofsuccess locally, but my meta is small. Testing online has been encouraging. I prefer dodge over distorion because i can choose when it comes back, and countering it is pointless, went with the 3/3 split of mizzium and pierce for abrupt decay and lily respectively. Side board just ups the number of counters/discard/removal i may need in a match, feeding is for burn, rakdos is for gy decks and twin.
So, TL;DR. I know its not jeskai, but i thought you might appreciate a different color scheme/play style of what your decks are doing. Also, Curd: you primers are awesome, i dig your work.
