Quote from Sentimental_Engine_Slayer »Been heavily testing again, including some midrange bitterblossom strategies and I'm back on the Wafo-List (imagine that), which if you're familiar with my older posts from last year, shouldn't be much of a surprise. I'm I was a major proponent of the double runed halos main, but now I'm really happy with this list after roughly 40 matches of testing againt affinity, jund, griselbrand, infect, rdw, merfolk, and abzan company.

Quote from KDPfenthing"He plays in a walk in humidor so keep his foils from bending. He once kept an all land hand just to know what it felt like to be mana flooded. He uses power nine for ante. He is the most interesting magic playing in the world." Old man, "I don't always tap basic lands for mana, but when i do, I tap Gurus."
Quote from amalek0 »Honestly, if we got Ancestral Visions back, I wouldn't play wafo draw-go. I'd build a more tap-out style list with mana leaks and more removal spells, fewer cryptic commands, probably some discard... lingering souls and some planeswalkers as finishers.
I'd start with this:

Quote from stokpile »For those of you wondering about sword, I tried MANY versions of the combo in various control shells and it was terrible in each of them. The best sword deck I came up with was BUG which was your typical goyf bob deck with blue for muddle and the combo. It's not something you can just cram into a deck and have it be good because having 8 cards that do nothing at all on their own is a terrible idea. As for AV it's what plain UW needed all along to be on the same level as esper, and now it is. This is going to be an exciting week!
Quote from zemanjaskiThey want to expand reds slice of the pie. They never said they want red to be competitive.
Quote from Sentimental_Engine_Slayer »Come on guys don't lose the vision.
Remember how I was just pitching Pithing Needle to you? looks like that card got a lot better with the sword unbanning
And just replace think twice with visions and stay the course, the meta is going to get a LOT slower and have more control decks, so we are in heaven right now being a cryptic command / thoughtseize capable deck.
Play donny's list he just posted above, trust me.
Also, everybody and their cousin will be trying to brew thopter decks for a while, so burn probably just lost a huge meta share. Keep that in mind when Sideboarding.
I advocate 4 pithin needle because the card is bonkers right now
