Quote from user_938036 »Unsummon, shock, and terror are all standard maindeckable. Which I think is antithetical to what you wanted. While white is getting such an unplayable card that I doubt it would be played. Green is weak but not bad like white, the card it gets is too specific to make this guy a main deck card and there are almost certainly better sideboard options.

What are some good ways to combat it (for aggro and weenie decks) outside the usual LD and toughness buff strategies? Ideas for MTGO? Camel I believe is only good in Paper.
Quote from lujo86 »A teammate and me went to neighbouring Italy for the Paupergeddon big tourney in Pisa. There were 214 or people or so, and we went with Rakdos Control (buddy) and Corrupt Control (me). He went 4 - 3 - 1, but would have done better if the universe didn't decide to mess us up and pair him against me in one of the rounds. I did better, and ended up 32.
I certainly could've done better but I ran into an Atog-Fling combo in round 2 - it's an affinity with nothing but Atog, Fling, eggs and filtering, and lost 2 - 0. Then when I climbed up into top 16 I ran into an Izzet Delver and drew with the guy (if I had just a little more time I would've won, and I think I messed up in the game I did lose). This then got ugly because I fell back down and got paired with another Izzet Delver which turned out to be my worst matchup and lost to that too. With a little bit more luck - such as being paired with literally anything else as I was easily handling Tron, for example - I think I could've been at least in the top 8. Well, I hope my luck turns out better next time.

Why wouldn't those decks just run Snow Lands instead and still be able to play the same suite of cards they already have? Seems like Boros and WB Decks just need to swap over to snow lands and they can run this card then? Not enough basics to reliably cast it?

I'm also still worried about Murasa Tron. It can be beat, but it's not a great matchup, honestly. Has anyone had any tricks to fight it in the long game?
