Quote from FuneralofGod »LOTV is not that great in the meta right now but she's good against Tarmogoyf decks so with the printing of Trophy I predict Tarmogoyf will grow in metagame presence and thus she should be useful again. Just my presumptions..
I think the 4th Tarmogoyf is more important than the 1st Grim Flayer. That being said, if you've got flayers and Traverse, maybe Tombstalker is too much?
Though Thought Scour does help with this. If we take the route of Become Immense, then we can certainly drop Tombstalker and possibly go up on Thought Scour? Maybe something like:
We're basically losing Inquisition and Liliana in order to make room though so it's probably not worth it.
If only there was a burst-esque pump evasion spell that we could fetch with Mausoleum Secrets. THEN it would be worth building around.
i mean i presumed the same thing. i originally had a single tasigur to act as the 4th goyf, because i figured fatal push was going to be everywhere. i was already set on 2 snapcasters, and added the flayers on top to be a bit more threat dense; not to mention i wanted to see if the trample helped at all.
yeah that is so many pump spells, and one of them has to be predators strike? no thanks to that lol
i did some searching on the gatherer database for anything cheap in GB colors that offered trample, fear, menace, etc. the results were depressing. id rather just suit up a death's shadow with a Rancor. of course blue has some options for evasion, but i dismissed that option quickly. forcing some block action against our guys is generally a good thing, and all the better if we can blow them out with pump/removal/whatever. i was even eyeballing profane command, but casting it for a reasonable X is asking a lot.
i do think a copy of become immense is viable main board tech, even without trample. im gonna try 1 or 2 in the side first as a knockout punch to combo decks.
simic charm is close to being plausible. though its still the same problem
