Description

Well, eternal masters is happening, so I want to try and get into legacy. My LGS is now hosting a legacy event every week with 20 'playtest cards' in your deck. Since I already have grixis fetchlands and quite a few other pieces of the deck, I've decided that I want to try and play grixis delver for the tournament since most of the deck is pretty cheap.

Remarkably similar MB to my list, I like it.

I would run Flooded Strand over Bloodstained Mire. All your fetch targets are Islands, Bloodstained Mire can't fetch your Tropical Island. Also, the Plains part could throw your opponent off game 1 by suggesting there is white in your deck, and no red.

Cabal Therapy - I see this in a lot of lists, still trying to work out if it is good enough for MB. First time you cast is a guess unless you happen to also have Gitaxian Probe (which you can't rely on as there are only 4 Probes). Then to flashback I guess you sac a YP token or if desperate maybe an unflipped Delver. So it is really situational - you either need Probe, or a YP in play. What has been your experience with the card? I run Stifle instead, again situational but almost all decks have such abilities.

The Bloodstained Mires are because I own them and have no way to get Flooded Strand, otherwise that would be in the deck. My meta has a lot of storm and blade decks, so Cabal Therapy is pretty easy to use for me. I never cast it on turn 1 without Gitaxian Probe pre-board, but sometimes I'll do that vs Manaless Dredge to name Gitaxian Probe to make it so they can't discard turn 1.

So the deck isn't perfect, and it's tuned to my meta a little bit, but the mainboards are very similar.

I have no idea of my meta, am just going to start playing, and don't know Legacy decks well. So I think I should hold off on Cabal Therapy initially for MB and go with mana denial plan of Stifle and Wastelands. But I can see how Cabal gets better as you learn more of the meta.

Definitely. In an unknown meta, Cabal Therapy can be very tough to mainboard.
