Quote from Spsiegel1987 »Quote from jubeininja69 »How come recent abzan decks have moved away from dark confidant?
Because Abzan players are experimenting with a deck that's kinda been dead since Shadow was pushed out of tier 1. Until lingering souls becomes a necessary evil again it's incredibly foolish to play Junk over Jund or Rock.
no, thats because people forgettin how good bob is!
They just listen to some tireless Tracker priest (which is a very good card), but actually she is more a 1 or 2of in our deck.
why? because rock and abzan is an outgrinding deck, and the presure has to Start from the beginning and not from t4!
How many games has this deck won with discard, into bob into lilly? even when he eats a removalspell.. thats one less for your goyf or scooze.
People sadly forget what this deck is made to.. and believe me, its not t4 tracker into some golgari pw that made us to sac the lands!
We need to keep our opponents low on Ressources, thats why we don't play path and thats why i personally think assassin's trophy should be a sideboard card in this Deck.
but this are just my thoughts
