Quote from exprofessorwang »I think it has to find another way to play out the hand by turn 3. Without Mox Opal, you should remove all the 3-drops and insert the full set of Memnite and Frogmite ("real" affinity cards that will almost always cost 0). With 12x 0-drops you don't need Mox Opal to empty your hand quickly... so much so that when I tested I actually successfully used Lupine Prototype as 2-of (never once was it unable to attack the turn after playing, out of over a dozen matches). Without the powered up creatures, use tempered steel to power up the wide board, which suggests you go monowhite, which makes All that Glitters and Dispatch auto includes.
Maindeck as tested is hyper fast, but weak to turn 3 wraths. Oddly enough it's quite resilient to Stony Silence effects (Karn Creator, Ouphe). Karn Scion comes in post sideboard for the card draw and because it produces big threats that survive Anger of Gods. Banishing Light or Generous Gift come in as white's best flexile removal.
Tested with over a dozen MTGO matches, and am undefeated. I'm not a good player, so either I got lucky with the matchups or the deck is actually quite good.
Quote from CatParty »What this deck really could use is a Nerset in the sideboard to bring in against decks that go really long like UW Control. That deck shuts down if they can't draw more than once per turn, and we need her dig ability to find answers that can close the game - like Lightning Bolt.
Quote from MikePemulis »Not going to bother with a full report on a lackluster night, butI'll say this. You know how Jund runs you out of resources? How would you like to have 5 cards in hand, with 5 lands on board, plus a Goyf and planeswalker on turn 5? Because that's where I was at. I think W6 is the engine we've been waiting for, and all we have to do to play it is ditch 2 flex instants / sorceries anyway. In exchange, we get a machine gun against x/1s, never miss a land drop, and a win con on a different axis. It's great.
