    Here is my Second Sunrise-style eggs deck with Mystic Sanctuary. Ghost Quarter on the combo turn easily allows you to go infinite. Edge of Autumn helps you gain additional Mystic Sanctuary triggers as well.

    I got wrecked at FNM by a friend on Ad Nauseam a couple of weeks back. He was using Dasneakypete's online list and got a sideboard sheet, along with tips on how to sideboard. It could very well be well positioned. The last thing a big mana player wants to see is a freaking Ad Nauseam opponent across from them. Frown
    I bought it online and had a 20-4 run in leagues. Two losses were to Tron; 1 was to Bogles. I understand those are supposed to be highly favored, but it just didn’t shake out that way for me. I lost one Tron game 3 because my Spoils Of the Vault dug down 24 cards to find the first Ad Nauseam and exiled all my wincons.

    I played against the mono red version. Imo it needed to splash white for wear//tear at the least. It couldn’t deal with a lot of my sb hate.

    According to Zak’s post both dredge players had never played it with chill before today. Idk how true that is though.
    it doesn’t really matter. Chill doesn’t change the lines of the deck, and zac has played dredge at a GP before.

    Or maybe the best sideboard card we could ask for in assassin’s trophy.

    Buckle up for spoiler season! We have a return to the plane that started it all and a Narcomoeba reprint! There is sure to be a great enabler or payoff here.

    Insolent Neonate definitely isn't better than Life from the Loam. You have 5 slots to play whatever mix of Shriekhorn, Insolent Neonate, Tormenting Voice, Burning Inquiry, etc. and that's if you drop the Scourge Devil/Rally the Peasants/Driven to Despair slot.

    If I am going to a soft LGS I'll play fetchless so I don't shuffle and wear my cards so much, but if I want to win and think it will ever be difficult to do so, then I'm playing 6-7 fetchlands.

    I like Tectonic Edge against Settle the Wreckage decks. I imagine it and the 2nd Ghost Quarter come in against Tron and *maybe* things like Lantern, Death's Shadow, others?

    I don't fell that Living End is a good match up. They play maindeck grave hate in form of Faerie Macabre and Archfiend of Ifnir whivh is devastating post Living End. And post side they have Angers and even sometimes Leylines. It looks really hard to overcome it.

    Yeah, I guess I'm looking at old data. Insolent Neonate made the match-up better, and even though Archfiend of Ifnir has been printed a while, people were slow to include him at 3-4 of (and some players, like PietroSas, always excluded him).

    Went 4-2 for 15th place out of 50.
    Rd 1 W vs Blue Moon 2-0
    Rd 2 L vs Living End 0-2
    Rd 3 L vs Infect 0-2
    Rd 4 W vs Affinity 2-1
    Rd 5 W vs TitanShift 2-0
    Rd 6 W vs Jund 2-0

    Felt bad to lose the matchups that are so favorable, but I had three games in those two matches where I mulled to 5 and had a one-lander. Ah well. Onto the next PPTQ!

    I'm taking this to a PPTQ Saturday.

    I have no read on the meta because I have never been to this particular LGS. Cards I would strongly consider dropping based on local experience would be 1 Ancient Grudge and 1 Collective Brutality. I think EE, Tec Edge, Gnaw to the Bone, and Ghost Quarter interest me most in these spots.

    SB plan
    -1 Tormenting Voice/1 Shriekhorn (otd) or 2 Shriekhorn (otp), -1 Bloodghast + 3 Lightning Axe (willing to consider siding out 1 LftL in place of an enabler) - Here one of my concerns is Auriok Champion. 2 of these, or 1 coupled with Phantasmal Image, get rough. I may want 1-2 Engineered Explosives in side.

    -1 Narcomoeba, -2 Conflagrate, -1 Tormenting Voice, -1 Darkblast, +3 Damping Sphere, +1 Driven, +1 Grudge (may want 2 Conflag)

    +3 Lightning Axe, -1 Bloodghast, -1 Conflagrate, -1 Horn/Voice, more changes if Leyline shows up

    +3 Claim, +2 Axe/Brutality, -1 Narcomoeba, -1 LftL, -3 Voice/Horn,

    U/W or U/W/x
    +3 Claim, -1 Darkblast, -1 Narcomoeba, -1 Voice

    +3 Axe, +3 Sphere, -5 Horn/Voice, -1 Narcomoeba

    +3 Brutality, +1 Driven, -1 Conflagrate, -1 Voice, -1 Horn, -1 Narcomoeba

    +3 Brutality, +3 Lightning Axe, -5 Horn/Voice, -1 Bloodghast

    Hollow One
    +3 Claim, +3 Axe, -3 Horn/Voice, -1 Bloodghast, -1 Conflagrate, -1 LftL

    +3 Axe, +2 Grudge, -3 Horn/Voice, -1 Bloodghast, -1 LftL (need Claim?)

    +2 Ancient Grudge, +3 Claim, -2 Conflagrate, -1 Narcomoeba, -1 Darkblast, -1 Voice

    Spirits (I have no experience in this matchup but feel confident it will be at this event)
    +3 Lightning Axe, +2 Claim, -3 Horn/voice, -1 Ghast, -1 LftL

    What do you guys think? I don't feel like we discuss sideboarding and games 2-3 enough.
