Tuning has always been so vital to the builds I create. Tuning against the meta, tuning against myself, tuning against my very imagination. You suffer sometimes. You create something you are so proud of only to watch it crumble to dust against the skill or luck of the player across from you.
You have to dig even deeper in these times and calculate and assess your choices so closely. It becomes a bit of an obsession. Thankfully my ADHD self loves that part the most.
Well, I went and did it, I went full Delver. Count em'. A whole friggin playset now. And you know what, one of the better choices I've made to date. I was initially worried that Delver of Secrets Flip was an early game only card but after what musta been 30 or more test plays I was proved very very wrong.
Making space for the lil' guy was tricky, I tried a few combinations and decided on a 10 count of creatures. Ionize is out for now. It's a beautiful card and I can't wait to brew with it more in the future but space was needed and it was the weakest link in the moment. I considered sideboarding a copy but with the meta so engrossed by burn, weinie tribal, and permanent control more speed and response was in order.
I have decided to main board a copy of Anger of the Gods, honestly one of the better value cards in my deck. For three mana and 1 card, you often find yourself taking as many as 3 cards or more permanently off of the table. That's just solid card advantage right there. Crumble to Dust has been moved to the sideboard. Still never a bad swap in to make.
The process continues
See you at the table

I made the first of my idealized changes. I swapped out one copy of Soldier of the Pantheon and three copies of Invisible Stalker for a playset of Soul's Attendant. it has changed my curve a little bit for the better and all the life gain offered up seems to help out nicely. The changes, though minor, seem to affect the effectiveness of Field Marshal. Only slightly but still efficiency, is king right?

The testing process has been continuing nicely. Finding my pacing against other decks in and out of the meta has been a slow and grindy process. However with my switch to more of an aggro creature base, early game beatdowns come pretty easy. I am considering including another copy of Grim Lavamancer in the sideboard unless I can find a suitable alternative.
Ok, can I just say, Ratchet Bomb does some serious work. Definitely looking for a second copy for the sideboard. It's led to very surprising twists of fate for the board state. Emptying my opponents main threats while leaving my creatures untouched. Considering using some in my other builds as well.
Still looking for some better responses or strategies for playing against Burn/ Red Wins decks. Sometimes though, you just have to hope somebody else does your dirty work for you. LOL
