Quote from alpinefroggy »thats epic
as for rug twin with not as many lands and less cantriping i wonder if i could use thundermaw as an asertive threat. replace keranos

Do you get to play in events with 26 card sideboards?!?
Delver is easy enough to beat if you play to a different goal than comboing out. What this means is that you prioritize removal-heavy hands and plan to stall them out around turn 5-7. At that point, no number of Treasure Cruises actually matter. You've got Electrolyze or Snapcaster + Forked Bolt or Spell Snare up. On the other hand, if you're attempting to combo, they just need to see one Vapor Snag to unwind all your plans.
So if you play that way, the trump cards should really trump. Your Dig through Time should find a card that is distorting when it resolves. Obstinate Baloth has been like that for me in Scapeshift but I wouldn't trust Twin to offer up two green sources on time and on schedule. If my goal is to resolve a big monster they can't beat, I don't want it to be something like Batterskull or Huntmaster that gets rocked by Vapor Snag or Bolt. So if you play Titan, you get to bring it in against everything, instead of having to devote diverse threats on your board to different matches. It ends up freeing a lot of sideboard space up. And I do bring it in against nearly everything. I've got three and they are a regular go-to for UWR Control, Pod, etc.
