Quote from Hydd »Hello All! This is a deck I've been working on for a while now, if you'd like to read about my justifications please take a look at the deck here (this link takes you to TappedOut.net).
I'd like to know your guys' opinion on ditching the Blood Moons for a Smallpox package. Unsurprisingly, Young Pyromancer is a great payoff card for Smallpox allowing you to eek out value. Smallpox allows you to also fill your graveyard with cards very quickly, justifying the inclusion of Gurmag Angler over the standard Bedlam Reveler. You lose the card advantage engine of Seasoned Pyromancer and Bedlam Reveler but gain a powerful, more general use, form of disruption in Smallpox.
I'd love to hear your thoughts, concerns, and suggestions on how to improve this variant.

Quote from AntaresRex »I have played nahiri/emrakul in a 8 players tournament...
2/1 vs titanshift
2/1 vs affinity
0/0 vs jund (we haven't played, we were already quelified)
0/2 vs urza
Bedlam is great but it's too heavy for this no looting version (x1 + 2 nahiri and 3 lands on g1 and 3x + emrakul on g2 made the day for urza). We can't reach the necessary number of spells in the GY that often so i think i will go with 3 SP (when i'll buy them and 1 bedlam as a second nahiri target).
Btw the deck seems solid... I must decide if i want to go with 3 or 4 lingerings (21 or 22 lands) and if we need that much a wrath in mainboard. 2x chandra AOF is a must. What do you think?
Quote from ccc1522 »This list is super sweet. What are the more obvious flaws of it? Anything you feel its lacking apart from T1 looting..?
Quote from part_timeMTG »TTB and Nahiri seems pretty good, I think I would run Seasoned Pyromancer over Bedlam Reveler because of ease of cost and the potential to drop chump blockers the turn before Nahiri hits the board to buy time for the ultimate. The closing power Reveler brings isn't needed as much because Emmy can shut people out pretty hard, especially since the deck still runs a pile of burn spells to close out the last 3-5 life your opponent likely has afterward.
