Quote from Draw_Gone »I you wanna get funky, sideboard insidious will. I did it for fun and acutally got someone with it! Not sure that the number of banefires is up there to justify IW in a competitive setting like a GP, but the lulz when you do get them are real. But, in reality, your best hope is commit (perhaps with a shuffle effect like field of ruin) and kill them before they kill you.
I've been looking at Insidious Will, Sanguine Sacrament (crazy, I know), Lost Legacy and Fountain Of Renewal. I don't trust Commit/shuffle, I don't like a two card combo, especially one that they can just luck up out of. As wild as it sounds, I think my next test will be Sacrament. It's instant, a good mana sink, can be found with Azcanta, and can be used multiple times. Also, it's playable against all of the aggro decks. I'm trying Lost Legacy now, but against aggro, it doesn't actually DO anything, and is a terrible topdeck mid-late game.

Wait until rotation to see where Red is?
Not an option, I'm not switching archetypes.
Quote from 9ta!lz »Banefire is absolutely filthy. I am testing a grixis build and I draw it almost every game as a 1 of. Get them down to 7-10 and banefire ftw.
I'm seeing more and more Banefire every week. People are tired of losing to me and the one or two other controls players Settling them out of the tournament. Even R/B aggro is playing it now, not just midrange.
