    Looking forward to your set reveiw - this set sure offers some juice all around. Plenty of cardboard I want for my various decks. Even for Nissa which is quite hard to make cuts for!

    I’m looking forward to going over it too. This set is super solid all around, with a lot of exciting cards coming through. I’ll put something up in the next few days. Easter is a ‘fly under the radar’ time for me, so I’ll likely pop something up on Tuesday. I look forward to discussing some of the new releases too.

    That makes sense. We’d be happy to see your lists, and just as happy to see your input on other topics too.

    I think it’s fine to lurk and get what you need, but ultimately I’ve always found discourse to be more rewarding for all involved.

    If you were making a mono-black deck, what would some good cards be

    There’s not really much that’ll let you do your thing without some finagling or give you automatic life gain triggers. Aetherflux Reservoir is your best bet to combo out, and it’ll do so grossly. Other than that you do could do things with Gray Merchant of Asphodel and Koko, maybe Disciple of Griselbrand? It likely would be hard to make that work with ease but it’d give you enough to go off with the citadel.

    Ninjas, elves and goblins don’t tend to have a ton of recursion so running reasonable removal should be fine. My Dralnu build is mostly a spellslinger build, and there’s some decent stuff I run that just totally hoses these sort of decks. Night of Souls’ Betrayal, Archfiend of Ifnir and Void Winnower are all excellent there. It actually stubs me how few decks run Archfiend because it’s been absolutely devastating for me wherever I run it. That being said if you’re not into looting Massacre Wurm, Demon of Dark Schemes or Massacre Girl could help.

    I’m not even sure if those are in your colors though - Norn could help, Ixidron, Insurrection, Alpha Brawl, Thalia, Heretic Cathar too - surprisingly in that last case. Obviously it’s not removal but it does slow those sort of decks down nicely. Constant Mists, Arachnogenesis, Spike Weaver for green - although to be fair I can’t think of anything off the top of my head in terms of actual removal for green.

    Funny, I’ve never seen Slithermuse used either. It’s always seemed like a decent option to me.

    Personally I think it’s deck dependent. It’s a finisher card for sure, so there’s every chance it’s a great replacement (that being said it doesn’t grant trample so your choice will need to be Craterhoof or Ibex for combat wins). Often times Zenith is an early/mid game advantage engine for me in Nissa. This definitely doesn’t fill that slot unless you have crazy mana early.

    In a 3 colour deck though it gives you a great reanimation option though and there’s plenty of options out to get big mana going. I don’t see why you can’t run both.

    Wasn’t that what the Boros Sucks thread was for?


    I quite like Boros though. Like Blaze of Glory, boros has style.

    Oh yeah, no arguments there. That thread just got gross.

    Man, that sub forum is really good at hiding things.
    Perhaps for the better.


    But, but, but what if I want to scream into the void where people have to see it?

    Blaze seems more versatile in some ways anyway.

    Mana Geode isn’t bad. Scry, enters untapped and colour fixes. It’s not a shoe in everywhere, but it could have uses.

    despark is kinda nuts for what it is. It hits a lot of big players efficiently.

    Agreed. Instant speed permanent removal. Gets rid of a ton of problematic permanents too.

    You realize cloudstone curio is specifically not for this deck right? Non-artifact. Pesky, pesky. I did consider Erratic Portal for a long time though, and it may end up in the final polished version.

    I swear, I forget about that wording every time I think of Curio. I've read and forgotten that clause so many times.

    Glad to have added to your buy list though Grin Scarecrone is great value, it's worth dropping a little coin on.

    Hmm. Finding colorless draw sources is tough. You got 5, which is decent for colorless, but has the ratio so far been giving any problems? I personally have a preference for going for 8-10 when reasonable.

    Sandstone Oracle or Kozilek, the Great Distortion could help with burst draw. Both are expensive, but if mana is no object who cares. Kozi could even double as some degree of control with it's third ability. Also, both have evasion, so can do double duty carrying equipment.

    Stopping fetch lands is not stopping the deck from interacting.

    So you've never been mana screwed or colour screwed? Must just be me. I realise how sarcastic this is, but this literally happens to everyone time to time. If I can't hit my colours I'm dead in the water and you know it, you're totally splitting hairs. I get why people are anti-ramp. I just think lumping ramp in with turbo ramp and dedicated tutor is comparing apples to oranges to watermelons. Ramp in essence isn't the culprit you think it is until its symmetry is broken or it's abused. Same goes for tutors.

    Again, this is all beside the point. Relating this all back to this specific walker, you're more than welcome to topdeck with no graveyard across from the guy running Ashiok and milling you out or comboing off, but I'll pass. And that's where the problem is. This isn't stopping ramp, or tutoring. It's just stopping the rest of the table doing it. And that's pretty garbage. It doesn't feel great and it's not fun. It's far less of an issue when there's a level playing field, but you're acting like this scenario would be, and it just plain would not be, purely based on the rules printed on the card and regardless of any other cards in the 99.

    NO KAALIA???? Hard Pass.

    I kid. Damn, I googled the guy you based the deck on. He's a monster.

    I've always liked Traxos, Scourge of Kroog. As a card, and also because he looks a lot like the siege hammer Grond, from LOTR at the siege of Minas Tirith. There's a vorthos deck there if you squint hard enough, I'm sure of it.

    Not sure if I understand why Thran Turbine is in the deck tbh. What are you using that mana for during your upkeep? I'm fairly certain with the stupid amount of mana you can churn out here, there's bound to be potential for straight up combo as an alternative. I'd think Cloudstone Curio and Aetherflux Reservoir could storm you out. But that doesn't seem like where you're going with this one.

    How would Scarecrone work in here? Not sure how much removal you're seeing, could be a decent add though. Otherwise, not sure what I have to suggest, it's been a while since I built brown, and I don't have the same staples you do. What sort of problems are you coming across in the build or in your meta? That might help point me in the direction of what I can help to suggest.
