Quote from TheAller »Went to a local 50 people tournament with the Geist list I posted in the last page, did pretty well, went 4-1-1. I went under controls with Jace perfectly, it was very nice to be doing that again.
Lost to Faeries and had a draw with Esper Tokens. There were several Faeries and token decks in the room. I think they were also trying to beat up on Jace decks. But also on Jund. The build was like Bitterblossom, Ancestral Vision, Snapcaster Mage, Search for Azcanta, Cryptic Command, V Clique, Spellstutter, Mistbind...if the meta shifts towards control and Jund probably Faeries will make a comeback, it's naturally good vs control (flash creatures and Bitterblossom) but thanks to Ancestral Vision they can also beat up Jund.
So maybe I got punished for cutting my Electrolyzes, like Bearscape was warning me not to do?
Not sure, because it's still seems too slow/clunky against them. But I did regret not having much going on against tokens (1x EE and 1x D Sphere in the sideboard, alongside 2x Verdict and 1x Purge/Wear//Tear to destroy the Bitterblossom).
If I will see again these Faeries and token decks in the next tournaments I'll try to do something about it (Thundermaw Hellkite, Staticaster).
But I was happy with how the deck responded against controls with Jace, going under them was easier than I expected...they cut many of their Verdicts to play more Jaces I think, they weren't able to deal with my Geist at all. Against Jund I did win but it was tough in game 1. I think I want a second Search for Azcanta in the 75 somewhere, it's key at beating Jund.
Buddy how did you play against jace decks before monday? are you a time traveler or a liar??
