Crystal Ball Discussion

clayperce on Serious Ponza

Thanks much! (I love it too, but I'm pretty biased)

I've really no opinion yet about Jace, the Mind Sculptor, as his unban was a total surprise. Gruul has lots of good tools against Control though, so I'm guessing that as it goes up as a percentage of the meta we'll be able to adjust along with it. But my Crystal Ball is notoriously unreliable, so idk ...

Bloodbraid Elf is going to be interesting though. A few thoughts:

  • It's definitely going to be good in Ponza, but I'm not sure it's going to be great. We really need the 10x accelerants, and Cascading BBE into them is pretty meh. And Molten Rain is a poor substitute for Mwonvuli Acid-Moss. With that in mind, I'm guessing BBE Ponza is just going to be WorseJund. There's a ton of folks trying to break it though, so I'm certain that if there is a deck there it will be found!
  • Speaking of Jund, I'm going to be bummed if BBE Ponza ends up using Tarmogoyf, as I don't have any. And with BBE Jund almost certain to be a thing, the price of Goyf is going to go up ... maybe way up :-\
  • Jund rising is a good thing for Ponza though ... we have a REALLY good match-up vs. the deck. Well, the old deck, anyways. :-)

There's some great discussions and early BBE decklists over in the PonzaMTG subreddit ... if you haven't already been checked it out, I'd encourage you to do so!

Thanks again, and draw well!

I see you have Elvish Piper, but you may want to consider Quicksilver Amulet, Aether Vial, and Champion of Rhonas for recurring drops. I like Summoning Trap too. Crystal Ball is a cheap version of Top if you wanted to run in it's stead, or both.

Thing2 on Rashimi 2HG w/ Etali

Sweet! I think Rashmi and Etali will be great friends! Did they tell you this is a 2DH 2HG buld? You have a few cards over 2 bucks right now. The Crystal Ball, Darksteel Pendant, Seer's Lantern will fit perfectly here and also be amazing for picking Etali bombs. Also, maybe run a few extra bombs for the Etali, Primal Storm triggers. Check out my build Etali 2DH which is set to private right now (I gave you access) so the other teams can't see my super secret 2HG tech!

I'm incredibly flattered that you'd ask. Yeah, I'll definitely put in some reps with the deck on MTGO.

As for your testing, I don't have any MTGO friends who play Counters Company nor Humans, but I could intro you to people on Affinity, Bogles, or BG Elves if you want to test specifically against any of those match-ups.

FWIW though, I think you're right about Counters Company and Humans. Most of the folks there are going because of their skills in Limited and Standard ... which means they're going to be looking for a powerful Creature-based deck they can adapt to quickly. Counters Company and Humans are just naturals. RG Tron (IMO, more powerful than BG now with the addition of Blood Sun) and Eldrazi Tron probably fit in that category too. Except for those who've been on Ramunap Red for ages, who will probably gravitate towards Burn. I'm guessing there won't be many Lantern decks Day 1, but they'll have a great Day 2 conversion rate. Of course take all that speculation with healthy skepticism ... my Crystal Ball is FAR from reliable! :-D

One other thought on testing ... you might want to start a "Looking for MTGO testing partners" thread here (in the Modern or Online Magic foums) or over on Reddit (not sure where would be best ... r/CocoMTG, r/HumansMTG, r/Spikes, or just r/ModernMagic).

As always, draw well!

First off it could be really useful to have a lot of the scry effect to help out your commanders ability. You could put in cards like Artisan's Sorrow, Crystal Ball, and Magma Jet.

The scry lands may also be useful, Example- Temple of Plenty

drohack on Count from 5

Going by the "7 by 9" rule is a bit hard for this deck as most of it relies on the numbers of the cards. But here's a breakdown as close as I could get for it. There's only really 5 categories of effects. While the other 3 just break down the number of countdown numbers of random cards.

5 Countdown numbers (13)

4 Countdown numbers (13)

1-3 Countdown numbers (6)

Recusion (6)

Protection (8)

Destruction (6)

Card draw (8)

Mana rocks (6)
