Quote from I ScareIt feels like in order to win, I need to run at least blue. It makes me wanna make a blue deck or multi-colored deck with blue.
Quote from TykimeisterJust want to make one thing clear.
If I have one creature and the opponent has 2 and I attack with one and they only block with one creature if I lightning bolt their declared blocker does my creature still attacks the player and they cant declare another blocker correct?
Quote from MakoEyesXYou might want to log in and check your ratings history. Unless you are a few hundred ratings points higher than every one of your opponents (4-500 points higher), you would definitely have gotten at least one point from 4-0ing a 4 round event. It's much more likely that your local store just didn't submit the ratings in time.
"i won both my local gamedays only losing one round and mine didnt move."
This is entirely possible if your rating is few hundred points higher than each opponent. I've done 4 round tournaments where i've gone 3-1, gaining 1 point for each of my 3 wins, and losing the full 8 off my loss.

Quote from ZiveemanThe list I posted a couple pages ago is closer to Big Zoo then Fast Zoo posts a positive percentage against aggro and control.
Big Zoo/Stoneblade Zoo are much easier for me to adapt to the aggro or control route so I don't think it works for everyone but I like utility so I like this version much better than the fast Zoo variants.
Quote from AsianHammerI wasn't aware that anyone was still trying to play a countertop build of any sort.
I just don't see them at all anymore.
Quote from ZiveemanDYou need to go bigger to beat CounterTop, either by adding Stoneforge Mystic/Batterskull or the pre-Misstep Big Zoo decks that run Noble Hierarch, Elspeth, and more Knights/Green Suns. I don't know how good the Big Zoo decks are nowadays with Mental Misstep but I've done pretty well with Stoneforge Zoo vs control since T2 Mystic just makes life really hard for them, as well as Library/Green Sun.
Quote from ryan1028I'm relatively new to the format, but I am wondering why I've seen Pridemage dropped from most lists (mainboard, at least). Has he currently lost his utility due to what other decks people are playing?
I just see a lot less Sylvan Libraries and Qasali Pridemages in current lists and I am wondering if there is a reason for it.
