Dominaria Preview - Final Parting
  • posted a message on [Primer] Amulet Titan
    On saturday went 3-0. Beating off BW Control 2-0, Bring the light 2-0, and Storm 2-1 (lost second game due to bloodmoon)
    Then I had to draw 2 games and did it to top 8.

    Cuarter finals went unlucky against infect on first round.

    This was like my best result on a tournament, Im playing no tracker main. 2 dismembers 3 adusa 3 explore and a kessig mainboard.

    Enough flexibility to deal with annoying permanents (rubed halo, ensnaring bridge, etc)

    After the match agains infect I analyze thr alternative lines of play. The guy ended up wining the tourny.

    Grat results! Traditional Amulet Titan its very good. The chances of exploding on turn 2 or 3 are real.

    I dont like krupix much. I’ll rather try obstinate baloth main and replace the sideboard baloth for another tracker.

    It provides some toolbox against discard. And it is possible to squeezee it when burn opponent is tapped and dont expect such powerfull card mainboard.

    Blood sun negates the titan chain. Although we are able to cast consistently a Titan , it wont going to have a huge impact on board. But the card is easier to clear with Explosives cause we keep our colorfull manabase.

    I find it actually interesting, a interactive way to replace a lotus bloom with another from the deck.

    At the end is the best use and you dont lose tempo.

    I would use it as a sideboard strategy against artifact removal. And also has plenty of uses as you can cast a grafdigger cage answering a collective company or against dredge, etc.

    @geedenorris, today I’ve tested your deck. I found it very good!. I had troubles with burn since you dont have sakura which is an nobrainer sub optimal blocker for the deck. But works

    Although I m wondering what are the uses you intend for Hurkyl’s Recall.

    Beat storm 2-0. Quite impressed!

    Thanks in advance!

    Davius, a nice split could be 2 Relic/1 Tormod's. Ruric Thar becomes a hard investment and could be easily avoidable (storm), although it is great against lantern and prison decks.

    Thanks for start uploading again your leagues =)!

    I feel that 2 Azusas are mandatory, same as at least 3 summoners pact, 4 Primeval Titans and 3 Tolaria West. 2 Azusas and 4 Explores and 2 Sakura Tribe Elder or 2 Search for Tomorrow can help to get the job done. Oracle Mul Daya, and Courser of Kruphix also are great.

    Regards!

    This is the list that suit me the most, Don't know if it is the optimal but is the one that give me the better results.
    Yesterday I was able to win against Bant Eldrazi, Jund, and lost pretty badly against Dredge, but I noted some mayor mistakes, that card that make us dicard is odd... Maybe Baloth is worth to side in just to fight that card.

    This weekend I have a sort of major event over 60 people, I'm bringing this deck:



    Not sure if it is better to have 2 pyroclasm or 1 pyro 1 firespout or 2 kozilek return, but I find this one late against combo decks.

    It is very nice @geedemorris that you join the forum, I'm hoping to test your lotus amulet list one day!

    Sad story. Maybe you can tell us later what went wrong. Good work on the LC anyways. It is brave to bring decks that arent on the top10 of the meta.

    I like having in my sideboard nature's claim.

    Also atarka dragonlord could work against humans, much better interaction than the Queen.

    I'm really enthusiastic about Mortuary Mire / reclamation sage / Ballista (for a second kill) / Thragtusk. Just pure love going on!
    Also find that in this recursive ways ranumap excavator would flavor well.

    Thanks davius foru your insight. It isn't a simple decision...

    Stubborn seems great if you where able to land a titan, against path, and to narrow blood moon landing like turn 2, but spell pierce as you said will do a better job countering early bloodmoons/planeswalkers before titan.

    I'll give another try to stubborn, but also another friend suggest me that spell pierce will do a better job at early stages. It is sad that I don't have enought time to test.

    Yesterday I went to my LSG, and tested a weird sideboard



    I faced junk, and lost because I keep a bad first game hand mostly. lose the first game, won the second (relic worked perfectly on this one) and lost the third one cause he landed a rhino and I found no threath. After he TS my summoners Pact I thought If I could fetch a Baloth to avoid him discard it... I sided out all the amulets and It felt OK but I was short on removal, I feel I need the third Dismember.

    Second game I won against Lantern, he surgicaled summoner's pacts but it doesn't matter, got two clues form tracker, which where golden. Then won via titan + baloth (main board baloth) and second game won through Rabid Lettuce and Walking Ballista. This game all the time I was able to dmg under the bridge. and having Ballista and kessig open me two threaths which is difficult for lantern to deal with. I think he could kill ballista and then needle kessig to stop me for dealing dmg. I bealive having options is good.

    Third game against burn, keep a slow hand and died with almost no interaction. I sided out also poorly, different from I use to in order to test my side cards... -1 amulet -4 Sakura tribe Scout -1 ghost quarter. +2 Stubborn Denial +1 Ruric +1 Chalice +1 pyroclasm +1 Reclamation sage.

    At having less Tracker, Bots where all to the dome. I was able to cast a tracker and a ballista, but on his turn 2 I already where at 10. Next time I would side less heavy and increase body count =/, As I use to do.

    Overall, baloth felt good in main board. Thragtusk is going to reeplace atarka, and chalice altough is great is kind of slow for the current meta in our deck (If we willing to fetch for it all relevant spells where going to be casted already). Also been thinking in adding a single Nature's Claim, It is good against affinity, infect (inkmoth), burn and moon decks for cheap.

    Stubborn Denial will stay for a little more, a lot decks wait you with a path for you to cast a titan. On mainboard it is going to be 1 Tracker 1 SSG and 1 Walking Ballista.
