    thanks for sharing this specially the video. i'm new to this archetype and i even started a thread here in mtgs 6 days ago not knowing mono black midrange is named "the gate" luckily one commenter mentioned "the gate" legacy and got me to this thread. gonna readback first but i'm glad that this thread is active.

    do you think we can play rotting regisaur here?

    If you're mono black, it might behoove you to check out Legacy's "The Gate" thread.

    wow! didn't know it exist, the principle are the same. thanks that's what i'm really looking for.
    sadly the legacy thread is too old (2011) but i'm able to find a modern thread about "the gate" which has a recent activity.
    really appreciate this, thank you!

    someone on Reddit ask me to try to report the results here
    that was me (nutzbox) Smile

    I think most players were low on hate as I didn't need to face any Leyline of the Void or Rest in Peace, I think the deck is quite good G1 vs most of the field
    .
    in my limited experience post ban, i feel that there are too few leylines back then i only expect it on BGx and mirror matches, BGx is quite tricky for me to predict because some do/some don't play leylines because of bob. actually the most problematic anti graveyard hate i found is grafdigger's cageSmile , relic and spellbomb are both easy to play around but not for cage.

    congrats for placing that event and thank you for sharing this report. i've already asked in reddit what i want to know. btw are you also a member of the FB bridgevine facebook group? another player made a good outing playing bridgevine there and he still got the altar mill back-up plan. his card choices particularly street wraith seems interesting.

    thanks! i'll take funeral charm as a consideration, instant discard, x/1 removal or swampwalk is sweet.
    re: gifted aetherborn, my thought is to curve, have intimidating board presence because of deathtouch somehow helps prolong game because of lifelink.
    not a fan of smallpox here, we got creatures and more 3 drops, it would be hard to break the symmetry there and we want to have that 3rd land fast.

    *updated the list

    hi jund players! i'm playing on the opposite side of the table and just want to ask you guys, is blood moon a good card against jund's current manabase? thanks in advance and it's great to see midrange alive again!

    thanks for all the response! yes i agree with you all about raven's crime, as you can see half of this list resemble something about 8rack because i'm indeed an 8rack player and trying to do something midrange.

    yes! i missed out on brutality and definitely be included in the list. another card i consider is plaguecrafter another creature that can be targetted by unearth/lili hope as a reusable removal.

    super thanks! definitely a big help. i'm also sorry for not checking the primer first before asking here, i was also overwhelm with how many versions/name tron has that i don't know where to start. i'll definitely check that video of yours!

    hi! i'm looking for suggestion on how to improve this list of mine:

    *list updated:

    the idea of the deck is somehow similar to jund: discard / removal / value creatures / powerful planeswalkers.
    the idea started from the newly released rotting regisaur which acts as our version of tarmogoyf which has a very good synergy with asylum visitor for it's madness cost and act as our version of dark confidant.

    i made a few playtest and here's my current observation:
    - too few creature for unearth / lili last hope to target (-2)
    - i sometimes mana flood, not sure if 22 is the correct land count.

    what other creatures do you think i can add here or worth consideration? and what to remove from the list to accomodate this.
    fulminator mage / plague engineer are sure inclusion in the sideboard.
    *sideboard is still under construction.

    hi guys! i've read that tron is a bad matchup. i play in paper and haven't got a chance to play a lot against tron. can you share what do we need to look out for and what are good sideboards against them? i only knew ulamog, pulse of murasa for ulamog and nothing else thanks!

    note: sorry i know there are different versions of tron, but i'm really lost about that archetype

    is altar of dementia still necessary to the deck? i think there's no longer synergy for altar without BfB. i bet we won't cast it T2 and T3 now.

    besides a T2 Hogaak and Vengevine is still powerful.

    thanks! i'm on anticipate now as i value the ability to get lands in the early turns. about moment's peace and respite split, i think it's still better to have moment's peace all-in, it's ability for a flashback really matter during our stabilizing turn, later on the game when we are executing stream of thoughts plan, fog and tangle are already good choices to shuffle into our library, during this turn i'm more on fog (specially if you want to storm off) in order to efficiently use my mana for fog + backup arcane denial + stream of thought (with replicate activation) + card draw spell.

    btw, is it ok for us to not fully return the max amount of cards from a replicated stream of thought? in my playtest there are times when i only return 6 or 7 cards (not sure if this correct). my priorities to return are: (not in order)
    - stream of thought
    - 3rd/4th accumulated knowledge
    - fog
    - pieces of the puzzle
    - brainstorm
    - ponder (least option)

    guys, what do you think is the good alternative for impulse? is it anticipate or shimmer of possibilities or do you have other suggestions. thanks!

    note: i do play in paper and i think it will take me sometime to get a copy of it.

    welcome to mtgs Nierluc!

    accumulated knowledge potentially draws more cards over think twice. 10 vs 8. like what you'v said you can easily mill you're 1st accumulated knowledge with jace's erasure self mill or stream of thought. with stream of thought you can shuffle the 3rd/4th copy of accumulated knowledge from graveyard to potentially draw 3~4 cards.

    for weather the storm, i think the 1 of in MB is good enough to stabilize early game and be reuse from stream of thought in the late game, we should rely on fog effects most of the time. the extra copies of weather the storm are primarily used against burn or pestilence deck.

    wow! welcome to mtgs! i like your list and notes you've shared about the card choices, not needing to look for jace's erasure as a wincon free up the slot for muddle the mixture opening so many slot in the deck.

    now for my thoughts: pieces of the puzzle/hieroglyphic illumination, this cards cost a lot and we need to open up extra mana for fog and if against blue we also need an extra mana for the counterwar. incase we reach a point wherein we are able to cast them with extra mana for fog then that means we are "somehow" in a comfortable position to win, i think the critical period for turbo fog is in the early turn (T3~T5) in which we are setting up and ensuring we have fog protection so i think brainstorm is still needed here for the cheap card draw manipulation.

    that's just my thought, thanks for sharing your list! with this i'm more convince to go the stream of thought route rather than jace's erasure, but i would still like to have atleast 2 copies of jace's erasure in my 75 so as not to fold against gravehate. (i bet i'll be having a hardtime finding a copy of rust in paper).
