    Hi boys, it might not be the right forum for that but i have a question (Since i play U-Tron).

    I played today with somefriends and i had a problem with a cryptic command. The player choose to bounce my Wurmcoil Engine and in response, i pay one blue and select my Spellskite. Question is, is cryptic command still resolving? I know that both targets are legal, but the target that was suppose to be resolve is no longer viable cause the target is changed. Its like Ricochet Trap, if you choose counter-draw and the spell you selected is not legal because there is another instant spell which is redirecting the effect to Ricochet, the target is illegal.

    Maybe the problem is with the "illegal" target or i have a fail in comprehension or a misunderstanding of the rule. If im right on what i say, can you post the rule please?

    Thank you in advance.

    I still dont know why people run gearhulk... I saw Pierakor list and i thought wow, its a great card in this deck... But lately and testing it, i found that card ridiculous when you need 2 blue sources and most of the time tron. You are not going to get the value of condescend or repeal, which is huge in this deck so you are going to miss 7 cards depending on the copies you ran.

    I think that a second snapcaster is just better, yes, its not a 5-6, but you can hit condescend or repeal. On the other hand, i dont buy the argument that is another finisher. Sundering titan is way better than gearhulk in this meta and that card is a real finisher.

    Nice one man! I copied your decklist and tested it in my local meta, i won 3-0 without lost even a game, crushing 2-0 with it against burn, esper and eldrazi and taxes.

    My side is a little bit different. I run a copy of crucible of worlds, 2 surgicals and 2 relic.


    Thank you so much for your streams, best U - tron player Jam

    I will drop a mindslaver and trinket mage for 2 TKS maindeck. They are absolutely amazing.

    If you play with spells like chalice of the void, walking ballista or engineered explosives its a great card because you can tutor those 3 cards and if needed, the tron land you miss.

    If you are going to play only with chalice, ballista or explosives, you are not going to get that much value but you can still running it.

    I think that against decks like G/r tron or any other deck that has more than 2 colors, tectonic edge and ghost quarter are better with crucible of worlds in the side. In my local meta i have a lot of tron players with diverse colors, and GQ - Tectonic are a nice lock with crucible. Im currently thinking of have 2 GQ but has to test field of ruin and see if those two mana for the ability are going to be worth it or not.

    What do you guys recommend, 1 or 2 surgical in the side?

    Depending on the U Tron deck list, it can be a really hard matchup against you even if you hit the bloodmoon. I´m a U Tron player and we got stuff like remand, condescend and repeal (some use supreme will or spell burst main) which can deal with most of thet hings in this deck. Eidolon can be good or not depending which player win the dice.

    U-Tron is perfect against deck that want to control the game or want to be like a midrange. It´s the best deck against other controls. Of course, we can lost like 4 times in a row against this deck but seems quite hard, specially with the sideboard. Dispel, Spell snare, Spell pierce, Ratchet bomb (for chalice on 1), Spreading seas, [card]Crucible of worlds
    [/card] if you play land destruction...

    Havent played against this deck yet but i play nahiri RW Prison whicch is similar and i can have an idea.

    Dont have to be a hard matchup. People just forgot about Torpor orb which shut down a lot of things in their list, its very useful against other decks like coco decks, humans and even eldrazi and taxes which has a lot of triggered abilities.

    Im just playing one in my U tron but im considering having 2 copies of it in the side.

    Do you guys find cyclonic rift relevant? Or do you think it can be replaced by walking ballista as another thread?

    I think you can replace it for cyclonic rift but cyclonic is better because our lands so... not even for the side.

    In my local are like 2 guys and another one building infect. In the last SCG i saw a lot in stream and one of them in the 10th place

    http://sales.starcitygames.com//deckdatabase/displaydeck.php?DeckID=116669

    I would like to see a Blue tron in that spot.

    I would prefer spellskite instead of gnomes but because of infect and auras as well and even affinity. I think that overall is better but gnome is pretty decent.
