TheDevicer on Wasted Card Names and Art

Just recently I drafted Ravnica and remember looking at things like Search the City , Skyline Predator , Guild Feud , Druid's Deliverance , Mana Bloom , etc. It might be that I just love the set but the art is just stellar here.

Oh, and every single card illustrated by Yeong-Hao Han aside from Steam Vents , the legendary artifacts from Theros, and Underworld Connections . Seriously, have you seen Millstone , Minds Aglow , Crackling Perimeter , or Smog Elemental ?

Oh, and if you're running guildgates and Phenax, there are a few other cards worthy of consideration.

You checked out my deck Infinite Ping - Yah that just happened... why not use the Elite Arcanist + Triton Tactics + Zhur-Taa Druid


Lobber Crew

Crackling Perimeter + Any gate

Gorgon's Head + Izzet Staticaster

When you have infinite untap and or mana make the most of it with win-cons.

In my experience with playing Maze's End decks, the best way to counteract Pithing Needlebis to run stuff like Wear / Tear and different win conditions, like Crackling Perimeter and AEtherling in your sideboard.

It works great. Believe it or not, there are times that I won faster with Crackling Perimeter itself over Maze's End on most of my games.

How is Crackling Perimeter working for you ?

No one's playing Burning Earth . Even if you run into it, your entire sideboard is anti-Burning Earth ; Crackling Perimeter 's activation doesn't trigger it, Swan Song counters it, Saruli Gatekeepers and Bow of Nylea minimize its effect (to a certain degree, though I wouldn't side them in against it specifically), and Negate counters it.

But then again, no one's playing Burning Earth .

Against Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver and Nightveil Specter I side in Crackling Perimeter as an alternate win condition. I have never seen someone use Demolish at an FNM event, but it is easy enough to play around with an alternate win condition.

The card I am most afraid of is Burning Earth . Price
