Pauper Review: Dominaria
 
The Limited Archetypes of Dominaria
  • posted a message on [Primer] Amulet Titan
    Maybe ive played against bad control players, but i really like the matchup against control, if you can protect your cavern, they really cant draw the same quality of cards, cause you use tolaria to titan chain them, and then kill them with walking ballista
    (and it seems even easier if you play with kessig, cause every creature and khalni garden tokens are lethal threats, but i didnt test the card)

    I played the deck A LOT with and without summer bloom, but i dont consider myself a godly amulet pilot, so i find strange that so many players here and on facebook are having problems with control

    ive played against jeskai, uw and ur, and our deck seems tailored to beat that kind of decks (and midrange)

    i really dont like how humans is capable of casting 5 color creatures. In every set, there are new humans, and with that insane manabase that 5color humans have, it's almost imposible to not improve the deck with every release. A near perfect manabase seems like cheating sometimes. You have a fast clock with very powerful disruption and you dont have to care about casting costs. It's like a bad joke

    if this is true, someone will be fired from wizards, i mean, it already happened with twin and bloom...

    seeing 2 rounds for now, the tournament seems awesome from a gameplay perspective

    my 2 cents
    i love the deck, but i think that you need to practice a lot more with it than with any other modern deck, without being superior (or even equal). For example, you can be a medium titanshift player and win the same (or more) amount of games than an experienced amulet player (blame on summer bloom banning haha)
    But, amulet has what i think as a "secret advantage": Very few players knows how to play against this deck, so if you are good with amulet titan, this can improve your winrate by a large margin

    on another topic, im foiling the deck, and there are cards that are really difficult to find, it's a little frustrating hahaa

    im thinking about cutting tect edge entirely for a split between ghost quarter and field of ruin, cause i like crucible on the sideboard, what do you guys think? to me, the chance of destroying ad infinitum our opponent's manabase seems very good, and it is a strategy that i applied before playing the deck agains things like e tron or bg tron. Thoughts?

    i dont feel like ghost quarter, tectonic and maaaybe field of ruin are good against valakut, not only because they can easily recover cause they dont even need to play valakut before they shotgun you in one turn, and the strategies that can play those cards are strategies that are normaly bad against a deck that just need to make land drops to kill you

    i think that valakut decks are more oppresive than storm in the sense that storm has cards that completely destroys them, like rule of law and more (even with counterhate like echoing truth) but valakut decks are more free to develop it game plan without opposition

    i think that, at least, an unban is guaranteed post pro tour, which is awesome, and it seems clear to me that jace, the elf or stoneforge will enter the format

    yeah, but i think that chalice is still more unfun than that sequence of bgx, cause what bg cannot do is prevent your topdecks, bg cannot stop you from topdecking threats/answers after all the discard spells, but chalice stops cold any future card from that CMC to resolve for the rest of the game

    i think that modern bans were a little different than other format bans (not all of them of course), i mean, you can say that, for example (let me imagine a little) mind's desire is a clear candidate for a ban, but u cannot say the same for splinter twin

    the strategy that works for me is boarding in rip, cage, verdict, dispel and elspelth. i think that sometimes the elf would survive and you'll lose, but u need to reduce all their resources and try to make them play your game

    i dont know if death and taxes would play stoneforge, i mean, your main game plan is about resource denial, and one of the cornerstones of the decdk is leonin arbiter which is a nonbo with stoneforge, and if you choose to replace the arbiter, D&T is just a white weenie deck that looses to everything

    e tron is a really unfun deck to play against, but well, i can understand that i wont be happy everytime that i play magic (even more playing modern), but i do think that chalice is just too eficient in this deck, i mean, it's a catch all answer that can be autowin in A LOT of matches (and can be game changer in others), without even affect the e tron player. Banning temple probably kills the deck, but banning chalice seems like a better answer to the strategy

  • posted a message on [POLL] What cards do you want banned or unbanned in the October 17, 2017 announcement?
    i just hate chalice of the void. Its card that punishes everything for free in eldrazi tron. Im biased of course, but i think that it is not a healthy card. On the other hand, i think that jace, ponder, preordain, green sun's, bloodbraid elf, twin, stoneforge and maybe dig a fine cards for modern (maybe jace plus dig, or twin plus dig are bad for the format, but i think that wizards wouldnt uban more than 1 card per time anyway)
