    Those line up poorly vs counterspells and most removal. In sideboard games you are going to run into a more counters and removal. G. Revenge just runs over all those options.

    This. Every Worldbreaker you cast definitively exiles something. There is a reason it pushed Ulamog numbers down and is a 4 of in almost every list before rotation. You deck is ramping into midrange threats, and that isn't very good. If your looking for advice on how to make the deck better, you need to pick ramp or midrange. If not keep doing what your doing as long as your having fun.

    Revenge definitely isn't necessary. What you need are more World Breakers. I guess if you want to go budget you could use Gaeas Revenge in the board instead.

    This is why leaks suck. All the hype to something we already knew

    It jumped because the finals of the standard open were 2 Coco decks.

    Abyssal Persecutor never saw any play whatsoever, but this will be a different format so who knows. We are currently playing a really bad shock in standard, even if this guy is worse than Persecutor, the format may be weak enough for him to shine.

    Edit: I decided to check just to make sure my memory wasn't bad. Yeah, exactly 3 persecutors in any decks at any large events in its entire run. It was around in the time of Caw Blade, so it makes sense.

    If you blink him, you can stack the abilities as you wish, right? So your opponent can draw the card before you exile one.

    Also, best art of the set so far. Must be amazing in foil.
    You might be correct here OMG not entirely sure, but you very well might be. I'm going to ask one of the judges at the draft tonight.

    Your outcome is correct but your reasoning is wrong. You will never get to choose the order his abilities go on the stack because they both trigger at different times, however if you blink him with his first ability still on the stack the second one will resolve first, he will draw, and then you pick one to exile.

    You gain absolutely nothing from the instant speed vs the bolster....yet. Soon this will not the the case with the new Eldrazi Charm.

    I dont think Thawing Glaciers is on the RL. It was just in a FTV recently, and Relics was the last one to have RL cards.

    My first thought was "omg I hope they print something that works well with Snapcaster!" then I realized that doesn't work.

    Ive played mill for a while now, and Jace is absolutely awesome everywhere but against attrition decks and twin. If your turn 1 play is a crab followed by a Jace your sitting in good shape. The fact that he lets you cast your traps for their trap cost is fantastic, and removal is already bad against us. If they decide to run removal for Jace just side him and your crabs out for Mesmiric Orbs and other necessities.

    I've been running a trap toolbox and it's been amazing. It allows me to run a single Ravenous Trap mainboard and Mindbreak in the board. There have been so many blowouts caused by that card. Having Trapfinders Snare and Visions of Beyond is a lot like having Demonic Tutor (at instant) and Ancestral Recall. Also, Dimir Charm is under rated, especially with Jace.

    When you cast cardname, tap all lands your opponents control, and empty all mana from their mana pool. Opponents lands do not untap during their next untap step.
    Sacrifice a permanent : look at target players hand and the top card of their library. You may choose a card, and exile it. Activate this ability only on your turn.

    It's a good card, but not for aristocrats. A deck like that wants it's sac outlets to be free. I've played literally every iteration of that deck in every format, and any time mana is attached to the cost of has been too much.

    I've had this happen, and contacted the Admins. They said that there was nothing they could do and I just got duped my Puca points over something that wasn't even remotely legitimate, since I had scans of the cards before shipping. This is why I refuse to use Puca.

    It's not just colorless. It has colorless mana in the cost of the same card, I don't understand how this is even a question (assuming these are real)
