Quote from FoodChainGoblins »Quote from Joban8 »I've been playing this deck for almost four years now and I've yet to encounter the mirror, albeit I don't have as much time to get out and play as I used to, but I'm curious if any of you fellas have went up against it considering the renewed interest in the deck? I've seen quite a few players from here as well as on Reddit mention how they've been running into more Bogles players. Regaining Tier 2 status is both a blessing and a curse considering how easy it is to hate us out should the meta move in that direction and cards like Fracturing Gust start becoming more prevalent in SBs. Or god forbid Aura Barbs; I highly doubt barbs would ever be an issue since it's so narrow, but there was a stretch of 2-3 months where multiple players at my LGS were packing it since I was notorious for playing Bogles. Those were dark times
Damn! Did someone ever resolve Aura Barbs against you? That's terribly unlucky.
I think if someone wants to hedge for the mirror, they have to give up perhaps a Stony Silence, 1 Gaddock Teeg, and maybe a Rest in Peace from the SB for 3 Ray of Revelation. It's a card that I have sided occasionally when a local Enchantress player has played and it seems SUPER good vs. the mirror.
Yeah, dude. It was devastating, yet hilarious lol. I was a naive Modern player returning from the game after an 8 year hiatus and I thought I could run Bogles every FNM without anybody wising up and preparing for me. Needless to say, that was when I started dipping into other archetypes and saving my precious Bogles for special occasions haha.
