Quote from Cody_X »Maybe, but spiral into interaction did not feel like a particularly "key" line to the deck. Sure, against aggressive decks its nice, but it didn't feel like that was what would make or break games.
Being unable to beat stuff like valakut, or emeria, or urza lands, or cavern of souls, or even having to spend real removal on manlands is, in my general modern experience, going to cost you just as many games as having a rando colorless land mucking around, if not more.
Quote from idSurge »What in Bant, would we want as a 'wish package'? There are plenty of multi-colour cards, but I'm not sure there are a ton in bant that are premium sideboard material or hosers.
Quote from jayjayhooks »Yea, that's fair, secure is probably better and I don't think I want Thirst anyways - thirst was to enable Azcanta a bit, but I want to minimize the number of graveyard focused cards for postboard games anyways so Azcanta might not make the cut regardless. Almost every postboard game I've played so far has had my opponent on dead or low impact cards (leyline of the void, rest in peace, relic of Progenitus).
I've been pretty excited about this list actually been working on it all morning and I think this could be a 1-of gifts ungiven list if you include a card like Snapcaster or Mission Briefing as well. I know I just finished saying that I wanted to minimize on the GY cards, but I think those cards are powerful enough on their own to warrant wasting a slot on.

I also posted about growth spiral in the 4c gifts thread. But people in that thread are stuck on trying to play lilianas. Trying to craft a more instant speed version, didn't really impress me just by looking at the list, as I think the mana is slightly too bad. And I also got a recent reminder why deathrite is still banned.
