the mimic is in there because i needed another two drop for curving purposes and it randomly just kills them, helps facilitate a quicker kill through tax. matter reshaper is in here over finks because of temple, having the speed to come out with vial into matter reshaper is insane. gut shot is to slow affinity and chord decks while killing random x/1's, i dont think javelineers are very good, they dont deal with the problem matchups fast enough. i do like mincensor and have been adding/cutting a singleton for a while.Quote from HugeElfBoy »@Mighty Bento: I always had success with scooze, but usually played it as more of a 4 drop (or dropping when vial is on 2 and having 2 green open) in order to get around lightning bolt. it is god for all the reasons you mentioned, graveyard hate is important with living end, tarmogoyf, snapcaster and even dredge making a comeback and in the mid to late game it can just be a giant beater. 2 main seems to be good. Aslo i would try to squeeze in another e-wit when i played green it always seemed to be the best card in the splash (after hierarch of course)
@FLCL: I too have gone to trying to do the mono-white eldrazi list. The things I personally don't like that is in your list is the Random 1x mimic (could easily be 4th flickerwisp,) and the matter reshaper can be a card like kitchen finks if you want the value since you are always getting a creature upon death and finks can be blinked for value where reshaper cannot be, also reshaper could be splicer, I get why you would cut them since thought-knot and smasher make great beaters on their own, I just think in white with a bunch of flicker effects that we can get more value that reshaper. Also 1 of gut shot main is a bit weird and can have high variance, if you like the effect (since I know it can put in work) maybe think of icatian javelineers, at least it has a body and can be blinked for value. Personally I don;t use fiend hunter but it is a good card and can be blinked for a lot of value when played, and is largely a meta call. Lastly I would attempt to find room for 1-2 mindcensor in the 75 they are very god in many match-ups later in the game when arbiter starts to be less of a tax (against decks like abzan coco, kiki-chord, scapeshift, nahiri jeskai etc....)
****usual disclaimer the above are just my opinions from playing death and taxes for awhile and by no means am i Saying yo u need to do this. Just weighing in with what i have found.
thanks for your thoughts
