+1 for Flash ban. This deck inhibits deck diversity. You used to be able to play spell-based Control decks and Storm in this format, and now every none-blue deck must play cards like Grafdigger's Cage in order to have a chance of making it to turn 3. If more than one player in a pod is playing Flash Hulk, one of them will win. I really can't believe the rules committee has neglected how format warping this card is.

Hi uninvited,

Didn't get any games in this weekend, plus trying to make a plan for Thassa's Oracle , not going to be able to keep Red Elemental Blast or Pyroblast out anymore with Flash and Protean Hulk T1/T2 now. Not sure I'm ready for the stax of Hushbringer . Abeyance or Silence don't seem to do anything. Praetor's Grasp to high CMC for me, been happy with Thoughtseize . Angel's Grace and Ad Nauseam back in? Burnout probably has to go in, need 3 spots. I'm not even sure if an efficient instant draw spell to target the opponent would be useful, if one existed.

Necromancy works with Worldgorger Dragon and Leonin Relic-Warder , but I have Dance of the Dead in temporarily testing it. I also have Corpse Dance in testing with Dockside Extortionist . Deciding if Dockside Extortionist is good enough on own without the Infinite interaction with Corpse Dance , if the combo is viable (i don't think so, still needs sac outlet), or whether Dockside Extortionist is just a little too slow and frees up 2 slots. No room for Shallow Grave ATM, need to find the above interaction slots as well.

Need to find a way to win on T2 consistently as well, might have to keep increasing my T1 win draw probability, and T2 and sacrifice T3-T5 to try and get there faster. Changes are costing me efficiency on Diabolic Intent , will not be good if I lose that. Mox Opal cheap now, but the probabilities numbers still don't make sense to contribute to enough T1 wins vs. T1 dead draws. Wishclaw Talisman could help with good artifact count.

Angel of Despair may come out for the instant since she stops Show and Tell + Omniscience but not Thassa's Oracle . Might be her time. Balefire Dragon , Avacyn, Angel of Hope , move away from a damage line Gisela, Blade of Goldnight . Have about 12 cards on my potential cut list anyways, just have to decide how to stop the fish. Other than the efficiency of The Gitrog Monster , all the top commanders are , they need to stop printing OP cards, but let's ban CMC9 Iona, Shield of Emeria because it's no fun, but let's make win on T1 more consistently, just such strange thinking IMHO.

Will keep you posted on how things go.

Yeah, what zwells3 said.

I'll update this list come time of the RC announcement when things are more settled and we can learn if we are gonna be playing with Flash , Demonic Consultation , etc. for a longer period of time.

Thassa's Oracle will be in the list for sure - I'll keep this list updated still, but if Fish Hulk lives the future of CST as a premier and top deck looks grim (tutor). Fish Hulk material and a core list is being worked on now by the consult gang and the hulk gang - basically everyone who had their decks immediately wiped when Oracle was spoiled (this one included).


It'll look quite like this deck, less a Scetper, and maybe some wheels, and just have Flash.

Thassa's Oracle because I can't wait for even more cedh tears over Paradox Engine ban and I am glad it is banned and now the Flash + Protean Hulk got even more busted.

Erebos's Intervention I wanted this card just for the first line in a life gain deck I built but with a flexible option of also exiling cards from graveyard if you are up against a graveyard deck yea love the flexibility

Haktos the Unscarred just because there are some funny dumb strategies you can do with him
