Rest In Peace: Have you ever been fortunate enough to experience what it’s like to surgical all the Thing in the Ices and Phoenixes out of a deck only to lose to a Crackling Drake? I have...more times than I’d like to admit. Sometimes Surgicaling threats is the right call, sometimes RiP is better. Having the ability to switch between the two has felt so good in this current meta.
Ok, commence the pitchforking

Quote from jokerstyle00 »What do people think of Vivien's Arkbow for filtering in mid/late game? Might help convert some of the useless dorks into threats in a more creature heavy version.
Quote from FoodChainGoblins »I probably should have not shuffled my library in a way that my Round 1 opponent would shuffle me to all land or no land.

A user on reddit, trainowns, just posted a Simic turns list featuring Wilderness Reclamation and Nexus of Fate! Post on /r/TurnsMTG, on /r/Spikes, and decklist on MTG Goldfish.

It's somewhat different from a traditional Turns list, leaning more on Pull from Tomorrow rather than Howling Mine effects to really draw through your deck. Very interesting brew!
Quote from purklefluff »hi guys, i'm passing on the torch to another user on MTGS (zcowan) to have a stab at updating the thread. Thanks for everything!
transfer will happen over the next couple of days, if I had to guess.

Btw does anyone have any advice for the KCI matchup other than hope your opponent loses their deck before the round starts?
I feel like with the diversity of the format you don't really want to be running stony silence since it really only affects that matchup.. but at the same time.. I have found that surgical extraction and other cards that target are easily maneuvered around..
I was contemplating running like 1-2 ceremonious rejection in the sideboard now; just because going up against the deck was awful the other night.. I literally just sat there for like twenty five minutes as he monotonously said "sac an engineered explosives - produce two mana" blah blah blah lol

Remember, the PPTQ/RPTQ system is going away, and if they announced its replacement please tell me.

So from your play testing, how has mono blue been going? Do you see a wide range of decks, and do you feel like your sideboard has enough answers? I had to give up on mono blue and go to a color splash. I didn't feel like I could properly answer everything going on

As for Mission Briefing, it was about as good as Snapcaster most of the time. I'm still not 100% convinced that the first Mission Briefing is better than the fourth Snapcaster, but I think if you want 5 or more copies of that effect in your deck, Mission Briefing is great. Thanks zcowan for the suggestion!
