    Hey Guys/Gals.


    Common question for all affinity style decks but, alternative to Mox in this list? Normally the answer is springleaf drum or Mantle. However, I feel that the lack of numbers could make these even less of an option. Do I just admit that the deck is weak without it and run another 0 cost for the storm value?


    Thank yow


    You are correct that it does make the deck weaker without it. Paradoxical outcome only costs 2 when you have a mox, turn 2 an anvil, etc
    However if it is out of your price range I'd suggest a spicy SB and run a few other basics and Pentad Prism in it's place. Doing this you activate cards like Anger of the Gods (SB), Blood moon (SB), Fatal Push (SB) and it basically does the same as mox when casting an outcome while having the benefit of paying for whir all by itself, and paying for manaleak and it's ilk.

    Episode is too cute. Appears like it could put in work, but worse than iok, or seize. Synergy with the discards feels nice, but honestly I feel like that card should be something else with a greater effect. That mana used should be doing more. Without madness it is awful.
    Agreed 3-1 is a nice step.
    I see the count of snipers going down. I'm so proud. (Tear) Looks like in your report that it was just bad against 2 of the decks and situationally decent against the other 2. But I could be wrong...
    Glad to see the bridges did work for you.
    I kinda see this becoming a free win madness or madness side board deck. Where you sit behind bridges or moons and go wider than the opponents can handle. The red version wants to burn them out or whatever. This deck can outvalue decks in the long game due to squee effectively drawing a card with every looting or helping make a board faster than they can draw removal.
    Example I would like to give is let's say you have a mediocre hand and iok a player with that style deck. Hand is squee, blood moon, bridge, infestation. What is the correct card to rip out? Unless your mana base is unable to get the colors in time you probably take moon, but then you have to think which is worse? Bridge locking you out or squee powered infestation? That's a hard call. One can stop you. One can stall or even kill you.

    After I clicked on 3 cards that didn't link properly I kinda gave up. If you are making a card with a card it should probably be in the deck.

    When Simian Arsonist enters the battlefield you may destroy target artifact if R was used to cast it.

    Dalton don't take it to heart. Let me tell you a true story.
    Shortly after Goyf was printed I went to Dallas regionals. You know how many goyfs were at the tournament? 4. My 4. I placed 9th with a vexing sphinx goyf beat down deck. Only losing to dragonstorm in the 2nd round and round 5 ID with a friend I rode up there with. He placed 2nd to the same dragonstorm deck that beat him in round 4.
    What's the point of this? Play the cards people haven't caught on to yet. Sometimes you are just ahead of the curve.

    Just for the record Pariah isn't the only out to Emmy.You guys are running big game hunters. And that's pretty much the biggest game around.

    You can't really expect these builds to work Bullwark. They are almost 2 years old. The format is dominated by completely different decks now. Huge shift in the meta basically. You'd almost have to start from scratch to be competitive with this pile.

    I love how everyone missed the entire point. Guys bonepicker was not the topic of discussion. Just a point made. Okay so now past that. If the card read... And this just feels more green than black BTW so fixing that.

    Creative and cool name G
    Sorcery
    Put a creature with converted mana cost of 3 or less from your hand into the battlefield.


    That's more like the OP is trying to describe. Would this be played in modern?
    Or make it black for some reason. Would that be played?
    Even though with the new evolution card, the OP card just feels green.

    We are of the same heart. I love mana tithe and shadow of doubt. I have this weird mardu pox deck I play where winning game one is not critical. (but does happen as these cripple). Seeing their deck is the important thing. I play both stall cards. Then after I see their plans the extraction slaughtgames come into effect game 2 and 3. In place of both those slots.

    I don't see why you are playing white after taking out the Geist. Feels like cutting that color entirely would be the better option.
