clayperce on Sideboarding Ponza for competitive(ish) meta?

3 days ago

Ok, after everyone's comments, here are my thoughts ...

GOOD MATCH-UPS (Bant Knightfall, UW Control, GBx Midrange, Jeskai Control, Death's Shadow): Mainboard is fine; no sideboard slots needed.

AFFINITY:

RDW:

TITAN SHIFT:

  • The more I think about it, the more I think Beast Within is the key. Say an opponent casts Scapeshift and sacrifices 7 Lands to fetch 6 Mountains (basics and non-basics) and a Valakut. All the Lands enter simultaneously and 6 Valakut triggers go on the stack. With the triggers on the stack, I kill a Mountain. The trigger from that Mountain will resolve and I'll take 3 damage. But the triggers from the other 5 Mountains fizzle, since "the ability will do nothing if [my opponent controls] fewer than 5 Mountains other than that new one by the time it resolves" (source).
  • Beast Within is also superb against a resolved Primeval Titan.
  • I might be able to catch an inexperienced pilot with Crumble to Dust, but an experienced pilot will wait until the last second (i.e., fetching them with Scapeshift) to play their Valakut. Crumble may still be worthwhile though ... partly for free wins against less experienced pilots, but mostly because hitting Stomping Ground will leave most decks with only 10 Mountains ... depending on the board state, that will often not be enough for lethal.
  • Blood Moon is of course amazing in the match-up, but post-board they will almost certainly have Engineered Explosives and Reclamation Sage to deal with it. Still, Blood moon #5 may be worthwhile.

The bottom line (for now anyways) ...

Pieguy396 on H: Jeskai Delver. W: Grixis ...

4 days ago

Hello, all! I recently decided (with some difficulty) that Grixis Delver would probably be better than the Jeskai Delver variant I've been playing the past while.

As such, I am looking to trade away the following cards from my Jeskai deck:

And I'm looking to trade for the following cards:

Unfortunately, if I don't get enough of a critical mass of offers, I won't be able to accept any of them, as it won't do me a lot of good to have half each of two decks lol.

Also, I have a binder that contains some of my other haves and wants, and I'm more than happy to make trades for cards not listed here.

Thanks in advance!

man, that looks really solid and fun to play!

I noticed you're running on a budget due to your manabase, but some Snapcaster Mage and Cryptic Command would be absolutely zonkers here.

Awesome work!

Also, Path to Exile is totally mainboard material. You should consider some Dispel and Blessed Alliance for sideboard.

I loved everything. +1

Lone Rider  Flip and can get insane when it crews an Aethersphere Harvesterinstantly transforming it. Blessed Alliance seems like it can be really versatile even to untap indestructible horses and do other things. Also Thraben Inspector is awesome turn one

My main reason to not include Manic Scribe is that while the delirium is great, it's difficult to get there from this deck without going out of your way for it. I also don't really want to be using any Unsummons on my own guys if I have them in the deck. If the mana base is flexible enough I may use something like Blessed Alliance, Farm, or Cast Out for spot removal that Sweltering Suns can't take care of.

Thank you for the suggestions, though! I'm still testing this online to find a more optimal build.

mindness on Cat Deck GW

Ghosty Thank you for your comment and advice. Even if I had to play without Attune with Aether I would still play Longtusk Cub. This card is amazing, it is a cat so it fits the theme and with every attack on opponent it gets stronger. Always Watching Blessed Alliance are both good cards but they are not rotation proof.

Blossoming Defense Heroic Intervention have helped me a lot and I would consider mainboarding them in the planeswalkers' slots.

Scrounging Bandar I feel weird about this card, might be good with with Metallic Mimic in play, but it does not seem any better than the other cats on this deck.

Energy synergy is very poor in this deck. The only -related cards are Attune with Aether and Longtusk Cub.I'd suggest to cut them in favor of mainboarded Blossoming Defense and (more probably) Heroic Intervention which perform extremely nice. IMHO other nice utility cards to think of are Always Watching and Blessed Alliance

Scrounging Bandar can be a good addition to the deck especially with Metallic Mimic in play.

As per sideboard I'd consider Felidar Cub
