Dreno33 Master of Proxying

Hello, I am the creator of TapDown Duels. TapDown Duels is an idea a few of us users on Tappedout came up with to bring the community weekly duels against each other for entertainment and discussion purposes. We can throw two decks up against each other and in the end help each other improve on those Dueled decks, as the amazing Tappedout Community we are.

We use cockatrice (see below for details) and I record the Duels and post them on youtube. The videos will be uploaded on TapDown Duels' very own Youtube Channel. Then, the video will be posted in its very own article to show the results!

I started playing when Gatecrash came out. Specifically, January 31st, 2013. My brother started playing when he lived In Humboldt, CA and when he moved back down he got my girlfriend into it since she used to play Yu-Gi-Oh. Now she has taught me both games, and I'm addicted to MTG while she remain loyal to her game (even though I beat her with my DD deck every time, haha!)

Anyways, I am a college student at CSU Stanislaus in Turlock, CA and play casually. I proxy everything to play just with friends (since I don't like to spend money). This is my go-to hobby and only get to play once a week at FNM with local friends. I am a learning player and always open to tips to anything Magic-related. If you have read this far, then you obviously are bored because as I am writing this, haha.

I love creating concept decks so if you ever have one send it my way and I can try to create a rough draft and am willing to work it out to perfection with the best available cards out there with you. Many of my decks are just that. Take a look, I always love a second voice. Thanks for reading. Post on my wall anytime, I tend to login daily.

#1

in freeform the minimum deck size is already 40. that means you only need 4 Advantageous Proclamation leaving you 4 more slots for 1x Power Play, 2x more Brago's Favor, and the last 1x Double Stroke :) Love the detail in perfecting this deck against all possible outcomes.

Ruffigan - if that's the case, i would like to throw my hat in the ring for Walker of the Wastes and Burnished Hart. haven't updated them in a few months (i have actual copies, need to post the walker list though). been playing them for about 2 years. no expert by any means, but I do think the strategies are viable (NOT tier 1, haha. they never will be)

#4

Some suggestions...

  • Opal Palace - does a lot more in buffing Walker of the wastes than another wastes.

  • also, another amazing land has been printed as a common since then. Cradle of the Accursed :)

  • how often do you feel you get to 9 mana? Hand of Emrakul is the other big beater you are missing. annhilator in pauper seems good enough, haha.

  • if you still wanted an additional fatty to equip with evasion, Ruin Processor is the last biggest guy you are missing.

  • Vorrac Battlehorns is great that it forces your opponent to only ever block with one creature, which greatly accels your commander damage clock. Since it gives trample, you get to do the same strategy on any of your other beaters as a 2nd option.

  • Here's a big one in my opinion. run more cantrips. you want to be consistently hitting lands drops and getting to your key enchantments. in colorless, this is hard to do. cantrips really help turn through your deck to find those pieces you need to complete your strategy. here's a start: Chromatic Sphere, Chromatic Star, Conjurer's Bauble, Relic of Progenitus, Urza's Bauble, Astrolabe, Ichor Wellspring, Orazca Relic


Things i don't like in here...

  • Frogmite - a cheap, sometimes free 2/2? i would rather just run another cantrip effect like some i listed above.

  • Lens of Clarity - its a really cool effect, but i think Glasses of Urza does a much better job at the "information advantage" then the lens does. just my opinion.

  • Phyrexian Walker - again, i don't like running 0 cost things that do nothing on there own. run a ramp spell in place of it to get to your bigger bombs quicker. a 0/3 is not where you want to be, early or late.

  • Rusted Slasher - way too vulnerable and will never get a hit in. there are so many better 4 drops you should be playing, or again, replace with a cantrip. I would much rather play a cantrip into an equipment on t4 than this guy

  • Galvanic Key - neat trick, but i don't see this combat trick come up very often and colorless decks don't "fool" anyone when they leave up mana unless it is 7+ for scour mana.

hey man! you probably won't see this comment as you haven't done anything to this deck in a long time, but wanted to recommend Drift of Phantasms. It is an INCREDIBLE blocker for PDH as the ground tends to get gummed up and many try to win with a few flyers. Additionally, this has the incredible ability to tutor for any CMC of 3 in your deck. finding an additional counterspell or your second curiosity effect with Ophidian Eye is crucial to control the boardstate through card advantage.

Transmute is one of my favorite mechanics in PDH so I thought I would let you know about that gem :)

with that in mind, Muddle the Mixture is another option helping you tutor through your deck.

anyways, take care man.
