Quote from SpaceStuff »Quick Tournament report from an scg iq, here is my decklist:
M1 - grixis shadow: 2-0, i felt blown out the last time I played a shadow deck (jund), but this one felt much easier. Shadow decks have a limited card advantage engine when their creatures aren't eating yours every turn. The deck basically has 8 threats, and is slow enough to allow the emeria / titan engine to grind it out.
M2 - eggs: 2-1, he got game one with the combo, I sided in all my counter magic and was able to stick a creature with counter mana open in both subsequent games.
M3 - esper mill: 0-2, I would have needed a lot more counter magic in the side to win here. Mind funeral and glimpse the unthinkable followed up with surgical extraction on all my win cons did me in.
M4 - abzan: 0-2, both games were very grindy, with the either side feeling like it was winning throughout the match. Does anyone else side out d-sphere to avoid blowouts from abrupt decay here?
M5 - BG: 2-1, grindy games like with Abzan, but I was able to pull ahead. New addition restoration angel was helpful against new liliana.
M6 - melira company: 0-2, game 1, I mulled to 5. By game 2 I'm exhausted and no hope of reaching top 8 led to suboptimal play. As a result, im not sure where this deck truly stands in this matchup, or the best sideboard hate for it. Anybody care to fill me in?
