Quote from ketoglutarato »regarding flame sweep vs. firespout, i just wanted to point out that the first actually has an application against opposing flyers (e.g. lingering souls tokens, stinkweed imp, flickerwisp,...), while firespout only cares if a creature flies or not.
No way to deal with Mantis rider save for paths, still.

the reasoning behind this is that as a tribe we naturally lack the ways to deal with go-wide strategies. Firespout could be an answer to this need, and it comes for basically free in an otherwise UW shell. Force of Negation in the main should be able to take care of the other kinds of matchup, so much that i decided to move deputy of detention(Debbie) in the sideboard.
i'm not sure whether we can fit light up the stage in, given that Force requires us to have a lot of blue cards. Unfortunately, with "only" 12 R sources, we can't afford to play lightning bolt. A possible solution would be to remove cavern of souls for inspiring vantage or spirebluff canal, but i decided to make the splash as minimal as I could.
btw re:unsettled mariner i 5-0 with him and I have to admit... it's not good.

Herald is a good card, but it's still a 3 drop. That means it comes out way too late against many decks that demand path.
