Quote from kombatkiwiSo I built the pox deck, and it is very fun, the problem is that it can't win anything.
What do you SB against monoU fish?
Against dredge do you SB leylines or tormods crypt? Or ravenous trap? Or extirpate?
Thanks. hopefully the deck can be more successful now
Quote from kirbysdlSeems mighty suspect. If I needed additional evasion and people around me didn't play enough Islands I'd probably consider island-makers instead. Also you're putting more U symbols in your deck, which probably has 7-8 colorless land. Let us know how it works out, though!
EDIT: That last sentence wasn't supposed to be snarky. While I'm not too confident in that change, it'd be awesome if you did some playtesting and told us how it went.
Quote from alrightgameI'm running 4 Annul in the board. I doubt anyone will be playing Kataki. I also have some blue elemental blasts for shatterstorm just in case.

Quote from Barl, ArtificerI would never play windborn muse in a white stax list without at least 4 copies ghostly prison. It seems the muse is bad with StP in the format and that gobbos can't gempalm incinerator your enchantments.
Quote from popeye79hi all, i'm not too experianced with merfs (i played slivers and eva green for the longest time), but think i may try it based on my meta.
i have the usual mono blue build, but in the 2 semi-open slots i had shakels instead of wipeaway.
i'm wondering what would be best in those slots. either...
2x shakels, 2x wipe away, or 2x back to basics?
my meta has a team america, canadian thresh, ugb countertop, ugw countertop, ravager, ichorid, and a naya zoo deck (thankfuly not piloted by the best of players).
i'm also wondering what an optimal board would be for this meta?
Quote from kirbysdlIf that's what you have, then by all means run them. As 4-for-3s go, Flames of the Blood Hand and Pulse of the Forge have more tricks to them; as mono-red you don't really need the option to pay colorless, which is Jav's strength. (Well, ok you can also kill a Rhox War Monk or Thoctar.)
Many decks get by without running 4-for-3s, so you may want to look elsewhere first, e.g. Incinerate.
