switch to 12 post 12 land —Oct. 11, 2015

Lots of revamping for this deck to be competitive! main changes is the drop of Borderposts from 16 to 12. I understand that 16 post, 12 land, and 8 cascade is the optimal numbers, but I feel everytime I playtest it I don't have the utility support or the game enders for it to work and I often dead draw into a post or a cascader when I need a WinCon.

I added in Huntmaster of the Fells  Flip because it is a perfect post wipe beater comes in gains you life something this deck is always in need of, gives you a 2/2 pup, and for the most part should be a guarantee flip burning off any remaining chump they have around, and voila you have a 4/4 face smasher!

I also added in Thieves' Fortune a great card that sifts the deck for your cascade and ensures you don't draw into your into your Restore Balance

lastly added in Timely Reinforcements it is a recovery move for 6 health and gives you 3 bodies which is a great way of ensuring that you have some chumps and you can feed them to the Gargadon.

This deck would love Bring to light when it comes out.

Saljen I like the idea of Bring to Light if it was just 2 mana cheaper tbh, Its a cool way of alternatively casting Restore Balance but the cascade spells take the cake I do like how your thinking outside of the box though comrade :D

VegetaWins_015 Restore Balance is a low tiered modern combo deck, and is very grindy. essentially the win condition is Restore Balance which blows all lands creatures and hand equal to the player with the lowest number. the problem is it suspends for 6 turns which is an awfully long time, The solution is to cascade using plea, or violent outburst which will cascade into it every time seeing its the only spell less then 3 mana casting it for free without suspension. because you are bouncing lands for posts you have no lands leaving them landless and you capable of beating home with Haunted Plate Mail, or more preferably Greater Gargadon which is a 2 turn kill and you lower his suspend by sacking all lands you have left over or sacking your posts for a hasty 9/7.

How well does this deck fair against affinity? What sideboard hate do you have against it?

MADMatt7777 Affinity is a challenge you are going to want to grab all the Firespout, and Ingot Chewer and it ends up being a pretty easy match up n.n
