MWorl91 im a great player, you're terrible at reading. i never once said or implied that an e-tron player would wait until turn 6 to cast those spells. but they DO have to still wait a bit for a good portion of the cards you mentioned. you do realize not every tron deck is eldrazi right? maybe learn to read before you spout off nonsense and try to put words in peoples mouths that they didn't say? and you do realize i never once disputed the effectiveness of Blood Moon right? in fact i literally never mentioned it at all.
the simple fact of the matter here is that if your local meta has regular attendance of tron players, and you don't at least ATTEMPT to use a Damping Sphere, you should stop playing the game. what are you all even trying to argue against anyway? you readily admit it slows them down, and your ONLY counterpoint to why it might not shut them down completely is "but e-tron!". you're just arguing for the sake of arguing even though you actually know you agree with me the card is good.
and all this doesn't even take into account that the card shuts down a lot of other things as well.

lukas96 lol way to intentionally misinterpret and misrepresent what i said. i never said i couldn't. at all. at any point in time. what i said was that i don't build a sideboard with the mindset of "whats in my opponents sideboard?". i build a sideboard to counter their MAINboard. it'd be foolish to go into sideboard construction trying to think "oh i gotta have counters to their counters so i can sideboard while i sideboard". i'd rather focus on countering the 36-40 spells in their mainboard than the 6-maybe 10 spells they sideboard in.

i would strongly recommend not using any lands that enter tapped. mono green needs to curve out perfectly, and lands that enter tapped will only hurt you. you cant play a turn 1 Dryad Militant, turn 2 Strangleroot Geist, turn 3 Leatherback Baloth with any lands that enter tapped.

well you can't play 2 decks simultaneously anyway, so just move the Urborg back and forth as needed. i do that all the time with my lands.

lukas96: yeah idk about you but i build my sideboard to counter an opponents mainboard, not to play guessing games and counter their sideboard.

lukas96: if you can't pressure someone with 6 turns of them doing nothing, you shouldn't be playing competitively. also, i have no idea what you mean by "ppay adeck with a throw tbtreat density". im guessing you meant "play a deck with a low threat density". but heres the thing. any and every deck should have enough threats to win the game, especially if the opponent isn't doing anything. its not rude or silly at all to assume someone is a bad player considering i DO know something about him. i know he let a tron player win while he had Damping Sphere in play. that is way, way, waaaaay more than enough to know to call someone a bad player. there is no card named "shere". and don't give me that crap of "he meant Damping Sphere turns tron lands into wastes" because you know darn well he certainly did not. i have played e-tron many times and they've never used a Wastes. why would they? they already have 12 sources of colorless mana...

cdkime you do realize this is a modern forum right? meaning i will never be susceptible to Force of Will. perhaps look at the type of forum more carefully next time. By Force has an advantage that is far more significant than a measly cost reduction of 1 mana. it can be used in a far greater variety of decks. say your opponent has multiple artifacts in play, and you're not using a mono-red deck. obviously you would prefer the By Force in that situation.

lukas96 im probably not worried about counterspells coming from an artifact heavy deck. the best example of an artifact based deck in modern is affinity, which to my knowledge does not use counterspells. By Force can be used in a much greater variety of decks.
