Hydroblast Discussion

ok that's fair another thing to think about is a lot of painter decks run the blasts(Pyroblast,Hydroblast, Blue Elemental Blast, Red Elemental Blast in the main so as to use them Painter's Servant as a form of removing troubling permanents why are you not?

Grubbernaut, good catch on Blue Elemental Blast. I was basing its inclusion off of tappedout saying it was pauper legal. Bummer that Hydroblast costs a pretty penny, but if I ever buy this list in paper, I'll swap it back out. Still cheaper than trying to build UB Control in standard, so I won't complain.

I always seem to forget about Ghastly Demise for some reason, but I love it and I already have 2 in my mtgo collection, so I'll definitely swap out Victim of Night for 2x Ghastly Demise.

Thanks for the feedback!

Looks like a fun list! Only thing I'd swap, since you mentioned you're mostly interested in MTGO legality, is to sub Blue Elemental Blast for Hydroblast, since the former is not pauper legal.

Also, since Victim of Night is double black and doesn't hit Gurmag Angler, anyway, I've often found Doom Blade and Ghastly Demise to be just as good or better, because they only require one colored mana.

Blue Elemental Blast is not pauper legal, but can easily be upgraded to Hydroblast. Otherwise, looks like a lot of fun!

Doom Blade, Deep Analysis and Death Rattle are all Pauper legal. Tappedout's legality checker is absolutely terrible and wrong; google 'Scryfall.' The best checker by far.

SB recs: 4x Hydroblast, 3x Relic of Progenitus, 3x Echoing Truth, 3x Annul or Steel Sabotage, 2x Dispel. Maybe find a spot for Sylvok Lifestaff

Mainboard recs: Rush of Ice, Containment Membrane, sub Ponder for Preordain (or, use fetches/shuffle effects to maximize Ponder)

Either board possibility: Prodigal Sorcerer for use w/ Sigil of Sleep
