Quote from Underused Cards »I really like the Spirits version. I suggest probably playing 4 Remorseful Clerics, because at the end of the day, a 2/1 flyer is good and fills up that 2 drop spot. and 4 Unsummons. I wouldn't bother with Icon of Ancestry and just add more threats. Especially when your version has other creature types like Angels. Rally of Wings would work as well.
You can also have 2 Sephara's for fun and it does stop a lot of sweepers.
Quote from Mimicvat »How are people finding U Tempo now? I felt that Teferi would kill the deck, but he just means you need to have counters up on turn 3 for those frequent Esper matchups. Less people are running counterspells and to a lesser extent instants due to Teferi so we have more game here than before.
We also picked up the Ghost Pirate. A 1/1 flash flier with late game draw is a big deal IMO. I've run him into red decks which would mountain+shock a traditional 1 drop, but instead we wait for them to play their T2 and then flash him in.
Post rotation theres posibility that Ghost Pirate and the +1 counter on other peoples turns merfolk could form a similar deck to what we have here, but with the loss of curious obsession in particular I'm not sure what, if any, blue based tempo is going to pick up the reigns when this deck is gone.
Edit: Wow, just got Ceratops'd. Uncounterable, pro blue, reach? Love that this type of colour hate is back in the game. I thought their new philosophy was to reduce the number of non-games?
Quote from rujasu »It's bad, and Blast Zone isn't even seeing much play right now. Teferi is still everywhere though.
Quote from italofoca »Teferi is painful because it's one extra card that we cannot let Esper resolve. I think it makes our match up vs. Esper worse but all in all we can still beat that deck.
I'm WAY more worried about Blast Zone. Blast Zone for 1 does not have any answer and hits us very hard by taking out the numerous 1 drops and obsession. We are also not fast enough to race what essentially is a CMC 4 card. And that is a card that will show up post-board in 100% of the match ups - if mono-u ever becomes a force again.
War is really, really bad news for this deck :/
Quote from Jiyor »Did they really need to make Savage Swipe total garbage? It should be able to target creature with power 2 or less not just 2.
Quote from metalcrafter »Not playing CoCo in this deck is non-sense to me. The simple fact that it allows you to go T2 and T3 dude into T4 keep mana up for CoCo (therefore flipping your werewolves on opponent's upkeep) and still progress your board makes it an autoinclude.
Quote from Baldy18 »I played this version last night (very minor tweaks) going 2-1. Beat G/R dragons and Abzan Aggro. Lost to Assault Formation (I attribute this to bad draws on my part while he got great draws both games). Draws seemed rough all night but that may just be small sample size. Seems like there needs to be more hard removal. Something like Go for the Throat would be great. Not sure Ultimate Price is the answer.
