Quote from KnyghtHmm... Jinxed Idol. Seems like that would be a bit slow and counter-intuitive of this deck. 2CMC and sacrificing a creature just to give it to your opponent. I mean I can understand it also being Rebirth food, but it's a little expensive for that. Your opponent would have to keep it for 3 turns just to hit the same CMC:Damage ratio of Bolt, but Bolt does that much damage in 2 turns plus you'd still have the damage from the creature that you sac'd to give Idol away. I guess give it to an opponent to force them to sac a wall or something, and then when you get it back, Rebirth it?
I just don't know if it's worth it, it seems like something people would rather play against us to minimize the onslaught. Just my opinion, but I tried to Revoke a Pyroclasm, so maybe today's just not my day!
Quote from ZeroStrideYou can Inqusition or trade creatures with goblins for a bit, but E. Plague finishes the matchup. Necropede is fantastic against goblins, sac-ing a Necropede to Plunge to clear a Matron-chump-block is great.
A resolved Emrakul is likely game-over for us, due to Annihilator 6. You need to either have 2 creatures down and the win in hand, or it's all over but the face-beating. The biggest issue vs the Show-N-Tell combo is that I was totally unprepared for it. My meta usually has Blecher/ANT as the combo, both of which I have 7 cards against (4 Duress/Thoughtsieze, 3 Mindbreak Trap).
I don't run vines, too hard to get GG in my build. Avoid Fate doesn't help at all vs. goblins as you will generally be getting burned by a cycled gempalm.
I think the biggest issue is that the deck requires creatures to resolve, swing, and connect...and there's only 16 Infect creatures worth running. I'm hoping to have 24 or so after MBS, and at that point I am thinking that an Aether Vial build could be the way to go. If that becomes the case, I would drop hand-disruption to sideboard, and make Turn1 either a Dark Ritual play, or Aether Vial. That is heavily dependent on the kind of Infect creatures, though.
Quote from Tru3z3roxArgh...I read through and see everyone going down the wrong path (in my honest opinion of course). This is a COMBO deck.
