Quote from elconquistador1985 »I'm currently working on the UW Control section. I'm wondering if it would be prudent to split it up since UW actually underwent a considerable change between when I threw things together before and today. UW used to be the Spreading Seas/Gideon deck and now it's Jace/Teferi/Terminus.
I will do Bant Spirits next and then KCI.
Quote from elconquistador1985 »As far as the matchup spotlight, I'm working on concentrating the Humans stuff to update the primer. Did anyone have any experiences against humans the last 2 weeks?
UW control is next. It was a tie between kci and bant spirits for third, so I'll either put up a runoff between them or flip a coin and put up the next poll for whatever will be 5th.
Quote from BlueTronFTW »I'm not testing it because I've been playing the game for a long enough time to be able to evaluate a lot of cards. I get annoyed enough that I see searing blaze game one against Tron sometimes, but I accept that its such a house against humans. Here's the best way I can say it:
Does it improve any matchups in a significant way? No, because when I lose to midrange it tends to be very close. If they are taking four then winning on the counterattack, I was going to lose no matter what I drew. If they let me draw, it means I only need one burn spell to win. In that case, I'd rather have the redundancy of bolts anyways, especially because two and three land games are pretty common. "Oh but if they are at three and you draw swiftspear you lose." Yes, that's true. It's also a card game with variance. Sometimes you get the draw, sometimes you don't. You could cast this thing, draw three, and they are all lands. ***** happens.
Quote from Raghouz »I am again toying with cards for Burn, back to Nocatl version then Nacatl ....there is a question that turlupine me : why Wild Nacatl is so strong on your eyes compared to Vexing devil ?
Don't answer me removals, I don't care for now. Just to compare those two cards while playing Atarka's command. Nacatl is a 3/3 with setups. Devil is a 4/3 or 4 damages face.
I have seen in Boros Burn the downside of devil at giving a choice to your opponent that may be bad for you especially when the game does long - not this new Risk factor that his choice is ALWAYS good for you, ndrl - however in "Nacatl Burn" version, Devil's given choices feel good. Take 4 for 1 mana, or attack with 5/4 + X creatures.
Then, you can troll me on removals and the future new meta full on green/white decks, control and black/green decks that may be wrong for that
