    @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.
    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.

    thanks for your thoughts

    hiya guys.

    i have been playing (W/B eldrazi taxes?) for a little while now.

    i was not having much luck with w/b, always seemed clunky/slow/trying to do too much.

    so i dropped the black and went mono white.

    http://imgur.com/KSeV594

    the deck has seemed great, i went 4-1 in my last modern league on mtgo (competitive lol)

    i played against naya chord 2 times 1-0, 2-1
    -wall of omens is annoying as ***** (i've started just pathing them early, im considering dismemeber)
    -usually you can disrupt their mana with gut shots on mana dorks, and a early arbiter can just kill them.
    -i rmemeber flickerwisping nahiri to reset it also lol

    r/g tron 2-1
    -had a game where i went mimic into thought-knot into arbiter ghost quarter
    -stony silence is great
    -fun note, lost to karn resetting the game and getting smacked with two of my own smashers

    lost to affinity 0-2
    -opponent had mainboard spellskite and killed me with a 8/8 masters i drew only 1 path.
    -usually they are just soooo fast and i never had an opprotunity to draw any hate D:

    beat scapeshift 2-0
    -pretty self explanatory
    -arbiter stop him multiple times by flashing in to stop tribe elder
    -game 1 i was on play he suspended search and i had trn 2 thalia in turn three arbiter ghost quarter.


    quick write up, its late, feel free to shoot qestions and i'll try and check back soon

    Connections is very necessary simply for providing devotion.
    if you play the nightveils and lifebanes main than the devotion is offset.

    i have heard from judges they are selling for 300-500 a pack


    That's not terrible. It's a shame that the panoramic bleeding described before was so obvious. I'll stick to my Unglued basics for now.
    im mad that the forest has the sun not included on the card, but in the panorama. would have looked nice, its still the nicest of the set.

    So.... How much do you get with a springleaf when you have no creatures on board, now compare that to the amulet.
    if you have no creatures on the board with a drum you're most likely losing the game....

  • posted a message on [General] MBD at Pro Tour M15
    Quote from LazyBuffalo »
    I won a PTQ to go to my first Pro Tour in Portland for M15. I am a limited only player these days but they make you play with 60 card decks too at the PT, so I need to learn Standard. I do follow the meta and have the following MBD deck built online and have been getting to know the format and various matches:



    So do you guys see this as still being the best deck with the addition of M15? Any changes you would make besides adding one Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth? I have tried it with G and U splashes too, but so far prefer the simple straight B version that Owen recommends.


    Liliana Vess has been proving to be decent. it strongly enables you to go toeto toe with the control decks, where you would flounder a little a times. Bile blight is a 4 of imo. but thats just my opinion
