    Russ, what's your current list? Can you post it? Are you streaming this weekend? I'm playing tomorrow and want to see where things stand. Last time I played at my LGS I faced a super fast, cheap Kiln Fiend deck (loss), UW control (loss) & Tron (loss) and some BW Sorin thing that I overran. There's also a Tooth & Nail deck that I simply can't beat, Storm and other Eldrazi decks,among other things. I've got my 2 copies of Sarkhan and 1 Avaricious now, so good to go there. Koth mainboard? C'mon people! I'm dying for content and tourney reports and games play-by-play.

    Russ (and Raystack)--the Trash Dragons list I see only has 1 dragon, Avaricious. Is there another list with Sarkhans and several more dragons that I'm missing?

    Russ, I'm looking at Twitch for your past videos, but I'm only seeing one w/ a Legacy list. Trying to get more reps with the "stock" list that's close to what you ran this past weekend, but not seeing those videos. Help?

    Played at my LGS last night. 3-1. Not too shabby. Mostly stock list, with these changes in MB:

    no P&K
    no Walking Ballista
    1 Hazoret
    2 Chainwhirler
    2 Scab-Clan Berserker
    1 Koth
    lands: 14 Mtn, 3 Gemstone, 3 Ramunap, 1 Scavenger Grounds

    Rd 1 win vs. UW KCI nonsense (games 2-1)

    game 1--Scab Clan & Chalice on 0 are winners
    game 2--he goes off and gains infinite life
    game 3--chalice on 1, chalice on 0 and then a Boil that gets rid of 4 lands (2 islands, 1 Hallowed, 1 Watery) too bad, so sad. Hard to play MTG on turns 8-10 with no lands! Damping Matrix also an all-star

    Rd 2 loss vs. Tooth & Nail (games 0-2)

    Hardly worth talking about. Gets to about a million mana to quickly. Emrakul and the Xenagos god come down, nothing I can do

    Rd 3 win vs. Mardu Pyromancer (games 2-0)

    game 1--chalice on 1, and a blood moon keeping him off black did it
    game 2--scab-clan was awesome, hitting for huge amounts of damage. Anger took care of both his Pyromancers. And Torpor Orb shut off Bedlam Reveler.

    Rd 4 win vs Jund (games 2-1)

    game 1--ensnaring bridge, Chandra kept ticking up did it
    game 2--big Tarmogoyf, couldn't find enough help
    game 3--BM on his 3 nonbasics meant no black or green, 2 scab-clan berserkers went crazy

    I'm loving scab-clan berserker. Complete all-star. Nobody's expecting it, they're all so bummed to realize that every non-creature spell they cast is gonna hurt. I T1 it a couple times. Every single person has to read the text a couple times just so they believe it.

    DO we ever talk about cards to get rid of opponents' enchantments with this deck? Things like Phyrexian Unlife are a pain to deal with. And then there are decks like Merfolk, Bogles or things like Search for Azcanta, Leyline of Sanctity or Jeskai Ascendancy that are super tough. Thoughts?

    Russ, could you please point us to the decklist or list it again here? I know it's a pain, but I'm playing this weekend, and keep going back and forth on Glorybringers. I haven't picked up any Chainwhirlers yet, but hope to soon. Do you think they're a huge part of the success of the deck?

    Oh yeah--Eldrazi Taxes. That was the last match. Completely wrecked him. Blood Moon was all I really needed. So fun seeing Eldrazi Temple and 3 Ghost Quarters all just giving him nice red mana.

    Was at Grand Prix Dc yesterday, just playing in the Turbo Town side event thing. One match at a time. Went 5-2! Some thoughts:

    Tons of people playing blue. I realize that that kind of side event invites more janky crap, but I played against

    Jeskai Nahiri--won; Turn 1 Blood Moon in game 1. Turn 1 Chandra in game 2. Just gross.
    Jeskai Thing in the Ice/Bedlam Reveler-won
    Jeskai Ascendancy/Fatestitcher--lost
    Jeskai Control--lost, he had too many answers
    weird mono black Death Shadow/8-rack thing--won
    8-rack--won, turn 1 Chalice in games 2 & 3 got lightning fast scoops
    and now I can't remember the last match

    Mostly stock list w/ 2 Ballistas, 2 P&K, 1 Glorybringer, no Chainwhirlers
    SB had Boil (which was awesome), Torpor Orb (which was more than awesome), Koth, Angers, Eidolons, etc., no Damping Matrix

    I need help with:
    when to bring in Koth and Haz, especially against all those blue decks?
    what are the typical/best times to use Spellskite's ability?

    People REALLY don't like playing against it. They get all peeved at T1 Blood Moon or Chalice. Tough tooties. I've spent years getting blown out by unfair decks doing broken stuff. Let them deal with Pyro Prison for a while.

    Russ, I'm playing this Sunday for the first time in a while. Do you have an updated list? I don't own Glorybringer, but might be able to pick them up. Local meta includes Death Shadow, Grixis Control, Esper COntrol, Kiki-Jiki, Burn, elves, Zoo, Infect. Thanks.

    Russ, been watching your vids on Twitch. How can one beat Ad Naus/Phyrexian Unlife? Seems like a terrible matchup.
