Quote from Torpf »Moved to Established - Midrange. We now have three threads for all BG/x flavours. See here for the Abzan Primer, here for the Jund Primer, and please post in this thread for all straight BG deck things.
Quote from FoodChainGoblins »I probably should have not shuffled my library in a way that my Round 1 opponent would shuffle me to all land or no land.
Quote from VidarThor »This primer ia very well done. I only came 1/3 of the way before I realised I need to sett of time to read it propperly. Good job so far, I will get back to it if there is anything.
One thing, very minor, the format does not work on mobile phone. Do not swett it though, the decklist where fine and visible.
Some minor things. Around extended period rock, many lists ran sword of fire and ice. It is not mentioned. Mind you they ran bird so you could gi bird t1, sword 2, discard + equip attack turn 3. Mind you thise decks where chocked full of legacy style cards. (Cabal, tutor, stronghold and reacurring.)
Also, under gravyeard hate, could you list Ravrnous Trap. It is good vs dredge. And unlike leyline you do not have to draw it directly.
Quote from wtyyy »Great primer. Perhaps I could suggest a little section which compares and dissects the strengths and weaknesses of Rock, Abzan and Jund and elucidates which deck to bring into a given meta. Will be an interesting read.
Quote from pzbw7z »Very nicely done. One thing which I think would improve the layout - of this and nearly every other primer - is liberal use of spoilers. It's just a thought.
A couple of nits: It's recommended not to run two Abrupt Decay and two Collective Brutality yet there they both are in Sol's list.
It's stated four Ghost Quarters can't be supported by only 24 lands. Sol runs three GQ main-deck in 23 lands and another GQ side-board. One assumes he sides out a non-land card when he brings the fourth GQ in.
Maybe you and Sol should talk.
And just out of curiosity, which side of the pond do you live on? I see "colour" but not any other indicator of British English. I know it's trivial, but inquiring minds want to know.
And, gee, am I disappointed Obliterock didn't get an historical mention.
Quote from VidarThor »Update: Looking at your primer on a pc based web page. The layout on here is sick. (Good.)
Quote from VidarThor »When was Obliterock ever a deck?
Quote from FlyingDelver »
Sol pretty much always does things a little different
Concerning the GQ though, he does run 1 Traverse which count as actual manasource in the list. That way its more like a 24-ish manabase naturally, with an extra GQ in the board as 25th land.
Quote from FlyingDelver »I am european, but since english is actually not my native language, I pretty surely just have a mix of anything possible, its basically whatever I pick up. I mostly listen to american english though, but have some british english traits like the word "colour" you observed. Its just how I got used to it, nothing special. I try to improve on the language from day to day though.
