Engineered Explosives Discussion

I'd imagine a couple enchantments and artifacts mainboard would make the Goyfs much better, do you think Courser of Kruphix or Engineered Explosives could be run as 1-2 ofs in the maindeck?

APPLE01DOJ i generally don't like the idea of splashing green. Blood Moon is enough of a threat that I don't want to chance it. Cards like Engineered Explosives are on the mind for getting rid of the troublesome artifacts, but that is an expensive option. My thought is that if it comes to it, I can try to put in the maximum amount of hand disruption possible with cards like Collective Brutality. I added the Fatal Push you recommended to the main board and decided to keep two of the Bile Blight in making for a decent removal package. Admit tingly, I am a bit hesitant to take out too many creatures.

deadman12 you bring up a excellent point with Chalice of the Void being a bit of a problem. Generally speaking a chalice on 2 definitely gives this deck a rough time. However we still have the other option of attacking with Tokens and Swiftspear. This works cause Chalice counters our spells, but it doesn't prevent casting so we still get cast triggers off of our spells. However if you have any ideas on mitigating the effect of Chalice I would love to hear them. Engineered Explosives is a bit less of a issue as we don't run many permanents, but it is a free board wipe against our tokens. In that case we fall back on more of a burn plan while we generate more tokens. Thanks for your input, it is much appreciated and helpful!

I'm not calling it bad, but very cmpetitive might be a stretch.

Sideboard definately needs some work

Just some fuel for though:

2x Damping Sphere

2x Stony Silence

1x Rest in Peace

1x Surgical Extraction

1x Engineered Explosives

2x Collective Brutality

1x Thoughtseize

1x Settle the Wreckage

2x Wear // Tear

1x Anger of the Gods

1x Grafdigger's Cage

I would cut Aether Vial, two Heroic Intervention and one Engineered Explosives for 4 Thoughtcast. Or some sort of card draw.

Midnightcarnival on 4c Traverse Shadow (sans White)

A few other minor changes made. I have been rather unimpressed with Engineered Explosives in this deck as it has a lot of tension with the threats. I've ended up moving a one of the Snapcaster Mage to the sideboard and adding Grim Flayer back to the main deck.

Blood Moon seems solid here, if you just chance the manabase a little bit. As for the sideboard, Dispel, Engineered Explosives and Abrade are all strong options.
