    Could you also include a non-budget version of R/G loam here? I'm curious how it will look like.

    Good to know you still play this deck. I will give it a try on my next FNM. My meta should be favorable for your loam list. We have a lot of mono red, death shadows and humans. Thank you for your posts and I am looking forward for some tournament report!

    OK. I played yesterday 5 round 25 players tournament at local store. I used Jeff Hoogland list with little modifications:



    1 round. 0-2 I lost to Mardu Pyromancer.

    Most of the first game was very even. It was just a discard battle, the same with removal. Flame Jab was great against Young Pyromancer. Finally oponnent resolved his Bedlam Reveler and draw 3 cards.

    Second game was a mistake (my mistake). I have discarded two Life from the Loam with Faithless Looting. He put his Nihil Spellbomb and killed me little later with some creatures and discard.

    2 round. 1-1 Storm.

    First game was very long. I hit my Raven's Crime and started to discard his hand but I couldn't find any threat. Finally he put his 5th of 6th land ob board and killed me with Past in Flames in his GY.

    Second game was quicker. Again I punished him with Raven's Crime and put a Choke on battlefield. We ran out of time game 3.

    3 round. 2-1 Life gain deck.

    No story to tell. I used my Flame Jab all the time and finally put big Countryside Crusher. I lot one game due to his 30+ life and Serra Ascendant. Third game was similar to first one.

    4 round. 1-2 W/B tokens + auras deck.

    First game I won using loam engine and seismic assault.
    In second game oponnent put Relic of Progenitus and started emtying my GY. He just killed my with some small creatures with auras of something.
    Third game was close. I am angry that I lost to such a *****ty deck.

    5 round. 2-0 Goblins.

    Easy 2-0 win thanks to Flame Jab loam engine etc.

    To sum up.

    Conflagrate is a waist of the slot. I didn't use it even once.
    Dark Confidant didn't shine in this build. Maybe we should use something more aggressive. I am considering use of Young Pyromancer due to problems with some more aggro decks. We want to stand it until we reach our loam-assault engine.
    Liliana of the Veil 2 or 3 Lilis? Is she really good in this deck? We have already a lot of 3 mana drops, and our deck is just slow. I think we could replace her with Collective Brutality as we need more removal and discard.
    What do you think?

    Not at all, it starts to be competetive once again. We can see two loams in top8 on GP Lille. It is the Niklas Kronberger build. He won Prague Etertnal in June with his loam deck.

    Quote from Domantas
    Hi everyone, I'm thinking about getting into Loam, both Jund and 4c versions. But before I do that I'd like to know what are the main pros and cons of each deck and which match-ups are really bad for these decks. I assume, Burn is a liability. What else?

    Thanks in advance Smile


    First of all, AggroLoam (Jund colours) and Jeff's (4c Loam) are built in completely different style. Classical AggroLoam is just more aggro Wink and Jeff's list is just more control. Both decks have problems with Show & Tell - Jeff's list has the answer in the form of Karakas (which is still too slow tutored by KoTR) or some wish options, in classical list you can rely only on your SB (discard or Ensnaring Bridge). Simmilar problem is with Elves. Jeff's list is much slower with dealing with the small guys but can wish for some answers (especially vs natural order). Aggro Loam version is easy to ride with elves but is weak vs NO version. I think that classic version is better vs BUG and BladeControl. You don't have to care about counters on your wishes, and Seismic Assault is rather a GG.
    Sorry for my english Wink
