I build wacky decks. That's pretty much it. That's the whole shtick. Need a wacky tribal deck built? Sure, I gotchu. Remember a great beast that nobody remembers? I'd be glad to build it for you.

Feel free to ask for a brew. I'm happy to build for anyone, long as you're not a prick about it.

Name a budget, colors, and what you want, and i will build to my heart's content. I will slave over my cauldron, crafting you a fantastical, crazy deck that you may or may not love!

Thats about all I have to say. Take it easy!

OH and one more thing.

Literally the most annoying little douchebag 1drop i think ive ever seen. Really adds a stupid amount of staying power. Any other ideas for the build? You usually seem to have the better ones.

Yeah I've been doing a lot of testing against DRS and Its looking like a pretty good argument against it so far. A few situations I'd rather have it, but as it stands it's doing pretty okay without. May be even better if the Gideon Blackblade thing works out.

I hadn't even thought of Gideon Blackblade yet. Seems really decent for this build. Will test for sure.

I already checked out Abzan Charm . It was okay, but I was ultimately unimpressed. May be worth checking out over Tireless Tracker , though I'm skeptical.

As for Fatal Push , I retest it every time I change something. Every time so far I've found it wanting, but that's not to say it wont be good.

It's already been tested and removed from the testing section. Anything else?

Really? In game I never seem to want or need it. Even on the early turns I find myself wanting to set up pressure and curve out instead. That may just be the aggro mindset taking hold ofc, but I'm not sure I'll miss it. Is there an absolute reason (like those one or two cards that ruin the format every time a new one starts) where thoughtseize is a must?

Did you have a look at the currently testing section? Tracker is actually in it already.

I just really dont know about the DRS cut, considering DRS is what it is in the later game. I can test, but you were right in saying I dont like it, lol.

The inspector is interesting for sure. I'll do some testing with it. Now that Field is banned, Witch's Vengeance is an easy cut for Yahenni's Expertise , aside from the occasional elf or knight deck. But those are few and far between so I'll make that cut.

Any other ideas?

Can I get an expert opinion on the new ideas in testing?

It's not. I added all the energy cards as a list before cutting everything. You're on an old version.

It's actually pretty neat how similar the decks are. No surprise that the biggest upgrade was to the land base. Ill update the old deck later today with cards you missed, better replacements, and such. Good job for the most part.

November 26, 2019 12:24 p.m.

Man I haven't updated that deck is a WHILE. Glad my stupid crap is still stupid enough to pull a following.

I'd say the sorin thing is preference to be honest. Theres yet to be a time in testing where I wanted Solemn Visitor over Bloodlord. This is usually due to the recursive value this deck desperately needed before.

I'll try out that new creature mix and see if it's any better.

I cant say I'm too fond of Assassin's Trophy personally, but I can see the appeal. I'll likely end up going with a split.

Thanks a bunch for the help.

Lots of testing done and changes to this list if you'd still like to help out with it. If so, I'd really appreciate it bud. Link for convenience.

Theres actually an updated list now. You caught me in the middle of finalizing my testing. Here's the basic rundown, if that changes anything. Freebooter were cut for the Sorins. Theres now recursion, midrangy walkers, and even more versatility than there was before.

I could see Grim Flayer , but I took Fleecemane Lion over it for the sake of wrath control, though I've been considering cutting 2 mana Anafenza for it.

My 4's are too full for kalitas, and even though in testing it was good, it was far too clunky for my liking.

I could definitely consider scooze, as it could easily replace RIP for the sake of DRS.

Courser was too slow to work out. The deck is on the faster end of the spectrum.
