Ramunap Excavator VS Crucible of Worlds?
Quote from Mindrotted »Just went 2 - 1 at the weekly duel commander event at my LGS. 16 people tonight for two weeks in a row! Not a bad turnout if you ask me. Recently I've pushed my Leovold to a more midrange deck and have been happy with the change. If anyone wants a list I can post it.
The thing I wanted to suggest to folks having trouble in more aggro metas is mana dorks. They might seem odd at first, but they are part of the reason we are in green.
Grixis can be more of the total control package, but BUG really wants to take advantage of the fact that we have efficient threats and ramp to get us to them. Our mid-game is good and I wanted to get there faster,
I'd be curious to hear what other people are seeing in their meta. I know that it can vary wildly from shop to shop.
I think Ghastly Demise might have been to narrow (due to non-black), also the reason you took it out I assume.. Grin
Also the list on mtgtop8 was yours, right? I saw some really specific cards in there that I don't think others where playing.. I like that you are experimenting a lot with different cards... Grin
With the banning of Giest, I don't feel the edict effects are really necessary, and can be replaced with targeted removal or other cards.
As for the unbannings, Fastbond and Mind Twist should at the very least get some testing in, maybe not so much Tomb because of heavy color requirements.
Seems like this deck is one that would want to play Ramunap Excavator + Fastbond.
That seems like it's going to be the biggest shift from the bannings, probably want to run a lot of low CMC hate.
