Quote from Mpasmatzidis »hello every one , recently played with the great creator build in a tournament at my local store
i reached top 8, lost by a grixis delver due to he was using boom/bast as away to defeat tron ,also i drew poorly
i want 4-0-1 at the 5 round swings
2-0 vs deaths shadow(big karn and Ugin were enough)
2-0 vs Bg midrange ( even though i drew like crazy big karn and ugin sealed the deal)
2-0 vs Great Creator tron mirror (game 1 got advantage with my early quarter and turn 5 ulamog end the game, game 2 made al lock out of new karn-crusible-quarter)
2-1 vs Spirits ( was though game drew poorly and didnt expect lavinia , my body was ready for damping shpere , but at the game 2 cards had shine blast zone and ugin)
ID with an other mirror
my conclusion from this event is that most of the matches not even all i didnt need the new karn to win my games i didnt even drew him expect from game 2 mirror at round 3
also it was really hard for me to sideboard in the match ups because of the sb being full of one off random artifacts
i even need a dismember against spirits where i just couldnt do a thing against lavinia
i might go back to the traditional build where my sideboard is more wide in the meta and more easy for me as i know better to sb with
last thing at my fnm's i didnt feel fun playing the new karn and make a 2 card combo with lattice , i dont know i might not be that kind of guy but i couldnt feel it that new karn fits in the deck from my point of view
thats all would like to hear your thoughts too peace !!
Quote from Spsiegel1987 »Also, you guys keep referencing Witchbane Orb against Titanshift. Can't they just Valakut all of our threats to death?
Quote from racerxen »man you said what i was thinking. losing removal like “contortion” and wail hurts a bit but im also camp that we are just scratching the surface of an ideal 75 with karn. It’s very possible we keep the wish board to 4-6 slots. Lattice is really good, i cant stress how quick that ends a game. if you look at the recent 5-0 list it ran 3 tks, maybe we should do the same? its refreshing though to have something to try and innovate with
Quote from racerxen »Hola all, I tested for a few hours tonight on mtgo, going 9-3 overall. I didn't like newugin and I cut him immediately, I went with this list as a starting point:

Creatures:3 Wurmcoil Engine2 Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger1 Walking BallistaPlaneswalkers:4 Karn Liberated4 Karn, the Great Creator2 Ugin, the Spirit DragonArtifacts:4 Chromatic Star4 Chromatic Sphere4 Expedition Map3 Oblivion Stone3 Relic of ProgenitusSorcery:4 Ancient StirringsMana4 Urza's Tower4 Urza's ine4 Urza's Power Plant4 Forest1 Ghost Quarter1 Blast Zone1 Sanctum of UginSB/ Wish List:2 Surgical Extraction3 Nature's Claim1 Grafdigger's Cage1 Sorcerous Sypglass1 Torpor Orb1 Crucible of Worlds1 Ensnaring Bridge1 Oblivion Stone1 Trinisphere1 Mycosynth Lattice1 Blightsteel Colossus1 Walking Ballista
So the Colossus was LOL moment, I'm sure it should be Witchbane Orb or a Chalice. The deck is so good now, decision trees, it makes me feel like I'm playing a new arch type. I have won many games off of Lattice + Karn, it's crazy. I beat Storm on T3 by landing new karn, and nabbing trinisphere. I'm not sure what the correct 75 is but, it's nice to be grinding modern again.
