Before running this through a competitive league I cut 2 Ooze and the 1 Huntmaster for 2 Blood Moon and a 21st land. I also cut the 2 Crashers and the Finks in the SB for a Thragtusk and 2 Roast.
I ended up going 4-1 in the league, only losing to a Hollow One/Vengevine deck who, in game 3 on the play went T1 cycle Street Wraith, land Looting discard 2 Vengevine, cast 2 Hollow One. There isn't a deck in modern capable of beating that draw so I guess i'm ok with that being my only loss. But the deck did feel pretty good, I had been playing stock ponza online for about a week before this and was winning at a somewhat decent rate but there are a handful of games where you draw Stone Rain and it's just a blank piece of cardboard, I wanted to try this to have more individually powerful cards while keeping the busted mana acceleration of Elf+Sprawl and the best disruption in the format, Blood Moon.
titanshift numbers have been dropping, it does too little vs storm, especially when they play the fetchless manabase (then they have only gifts for searching), it does little vs etron, nothing vs humans, nothing vs affinity and most control players play uw with only a small number of fetches.
Quote from Cody_X »Yea, who cares about those cards. Prismatic omen is the only one that bothers me, and they run 0-1. If it matters, we have other counterspells, and can always cryptic bounce it.
