Quote from dcalrokundess »Hey y'all. I've been playing Humans on MTGO for a while and I'm wondering how everyone has felt facing Tocatli Honor Guard or Torpor Orb out of the sideboard It's so demoralizing to see it turn 2, especially after I've played a Champion of the Parish, haha.
Quote from headminerve »Have you read Cedric Phillips' Humans article on SCG? It's an excellent breakdown of Humans. He also says 'Sin Collector is busted', and if you want to beat Jeskai you should play 4 going forward, so he's in agreement with you there.
Nope, I don't have premium. There's not even a first paragraph available.
Everybody plays almost the same SB, which was pretty easy to figure out when the format hadn't shifted anti-Humans yet (until April). Now it's the deck to beat (who would've figured ?), the SB must adapt, but I ain't sure what config is best. Instead of looking at what decks we want SB cards for (which is how we used to build our lists), we better figure out what decks are our predators, and prepare for them first, then fill the rest of the SB with what seems more likely to be popular in a given metagame.

Quote from mikemikemike »Thanks for the answer
Do you think that going for 4 is mandatory to gain benefit from the noble
We feel that 2 isn't enough
Quote from headminerve »Question : did you have mana for Mantis by Turn 3 ?
I think a good plan would've been to Med Mage for Bolt, see if he responds by killing champ, if not your champ can grow big enough to be bigger than TKS, maybe Smasher at some point, and overall stick with the beatdown plan with 2 Mantis in the air (immune to Bolt thanks to Med Mage). Images can copy Mantis if you are ahead in the race, or any big Eldrazi in order to get ahead.
With Med Mage by T2, if he bolts your champ, you can now name TKS (which is a good choice since you have 2 Mantis in hand and wanna protect them).
Quote from headminerve »I'd bet Militia Bugler will be better than Copter at digging (4 cards in one turn VS 1/turn the turn after it was cast.).
Quote from HawksSoc »I can't get over the Ziggurat hump with Copter to be honest, it just doesn't seem doable. Maybe as a 1 of? Think you could take note of how often you could cast it on t2? Even if it's not in hand we could probably get some sense of that. The times its cast and is amazing would be far more memorable then the times it rots in hand because there's a Zigg in play, we could easily lead ourselves down confirmation bias avenue.
I might proxy up a couple of Bugler and see what's going on there.
Quote from SmauG »I would not try soulbond in a very removal heavy meta like the one we are in today.
If drawing a card is your goal, Bob, Rogue Refiner and offcourse the newly spoiled Bugler are far better options.
