    I said multiple times in the previous articles that I believe it was nerfed. And indeed it was.
    Also, Probe further nerfed some lower tier tempo decks as well, such as RUG Delver, or UR Pyromancer.
    This is fine, because Probe was busted, and I do get that. But wouldn't it be legal for us to ask for a print to help tempo decks, like a better Tempo charm or something else? Maybe a UG card also.


    Who knows, maybe the next Ravnica set will cure what ails you.

    What do people think about the MODO challenge having 3 out of 8 Creeping Dredge decks in the Top 8? Is this a concern that the deck will get nuked by Wizards again? It seems like Creeping Chill shaved the fundamental turn of Dredge significantly.


    Ask again in 3 to 6 months. People trying out the new hotness isn't a cause for concern - it making up a disproportionate meta share for a long period of time like 6 months is when we can actually ask these questions.

    I feel like the new Pelt Collecter Zoo deck might be able to carve itself a niche in the meta, but even then, it's competing with Hollow One, Scales Affinity, and Bridgevine in the aggro sweepstakes.

    For a control matchup? I think they're reasonably equal, but Carnage Tyrant leads for me. It comes down a turn sooner and is much harder to chump. Any big "haha screw you control!" card we bring in is one we have to accept will possibly just be Terminus'd away, so I think Carnage Tyrant is the pick right now.

    I personally don't run either in my sideboard, but I might be the weird one.

    My problem is that Im not trying to spend $20 on that. Spending $20 on a card like this feels bad


    More or less exactly why I'm not trying Zacama, by the by. Jam what you've got.

    I once landed a turn 2 Hive Mind against a Jund player and hit zero action for the rest of the game; opponent just kept jamming creatures and Lilianas.

    Eventually he killed me by hitting me down to 2 and casting Thoughtseize, which, since I got the copy first, killed me.

    I miss those games.

    I wonder if they still use the Hive Mind combo?


    Occasionally. It's not as good when you can't turn 2 or 3 with a reasonable level of consistency any more, but I could see it becoming more prevalent in a UW meta.

    I honestly think that Amulet Bloom would have survived as a ramp deck if Amulet was banned rather than Bloom. The deck can function pretty well without the Amulets as a ramp deck and still does very well against midrange, and you still get Squadron Titans. I just think it might have leaned more into the Hive Mind package since you could turn 3 that even without Amulet.

    The fact that the KCI recursion engine can play through Extirpate and other split second effects is kind of bonkers.

    In my opinion, people are always going to think of excuses to hate on Combo decks. Combo decks need some resilience or else they just fold too easily and are not worth playing by any stretch of the imagination.


    I agree, but I think there's only a very thin zone of "resilient enough to be playable" and on either side of that are gulfs of "trash" and "broken".

    Tested Discovery // Dispersal as a 4-of in Abzan Traverse, Mardu Midrange, and GriselShoal Goryo's Vengeance, and it was great in all 3 decks. Mardu definitely feels more consistent now, and it was decent at helping fix Abzan Traverse's mana and hitting Delirium.

    In the meantime, I predict Discovery // Dispersal will not see play in blue decks. Resembling Strategic Planning that much does hurt.


    What were your cuts in each of the decks?

    UR Counter target non-creature spell or deal 3 damage to target creature would be great. Just like how Abrade is.

    Assassin's Trophy is nutty. What is it with Golgari getting the dumbest most powerful stuff in Ravnica blocks?
