Quote from Magic_for_lifeif the decks that are being played are the same decks being played at the gp's then the atmosphere its being played in doesent matter. winning against it is winning against wether its at a gp, fnm, or pro tour
Quote from Magic_for_lifeok how about this. is there any way to do black/white and splash for red for reckoner and anger the gods? i do love slaughter games and assemble the legion in my side board but i can live with out those. anger is just a good board wipe against alot of decks. or is black/white without the red a better option? once born of the gods comes out then ill pbly def. switch to white/black with drown in sorrow coming out

Quote from Kamahl, the FallenI would like to think I am pretty qualified to chime in here on this a bit.
The reason people are not playing the deck right now, is because it is just a bad deck. Don't get me wrong, the deck is perfectly capable of winning a number of games. In fact, the deck can be configured to really beat any specific match you want it to. Therein lies the problem, and the reason people do not play this deck.
Not only are these configurations vastly different from each other, but they are also completely unstable in a meta game where we have all of these decks that function on flurry mechanics that WBR are almost always open to.
The options that exist in these colors are just too narrow to be able to compete with decks that have much less narrow approaches to handling a game. Especially when all of those decks vary in speed and WBR always has just one speed... slow as ****. It generates value out of goodstuff creatures and removal, where other decks generate value off of simply existing until critical mass is achieved and can do something absurd.
