Round 1 was a loss to UR Delver, Round 2 was Punishing Fire Knight of the Reliquary, also loss, then win against a white Eldrazi, win against a Death and Taxes very similar to the one that won, then I lost to burn, putting me at needing to win out for day 2, so then I won against another burn, won against a really weird mono blue deck using Judge's Familiar and Mausoleum Wanderer thanks to Sword of Fire and Ice, won against a Leoblade, won against another Eldrazi, and then finally lost in the last round to a BUG Delver. All fair matches the whole way through, it was weird. Saw some combo decks around the tables, just didn't face one.

5-4 in Vegas with this deck. I like it. Straight up midrange in a world of unfair. I made a few minor changes but still kept the 61st card for good luck.

I'm playing Jund this weekend in Vegas, I might switch to this if "low to the ground" doesn't work. I like the Swords to Plowshares and Stoneforge, that seems more relevant than Lightning Bolt and Punishing Fire

Liliana of the Veil would be better in general vs Crackling Doom. There are going to be 10 cases where Liliana is just better vs the 1 where the Crackling Doom's damage actually makes the difference. Obviously the main consideration there is budget.

in Legacy being able to hit key combo cards matters a lot more than saving 2 life, at least in the current format. In Modern where burn is so prevalent and life totals matter more due to shocklands Inquisition of Kozilek becomes a more relevant card. It's only useful for certain aggressive decks in Legacy.

it can be rough in Legacy if they're on the play and have a combo in hand because there's not much you can do without Force of Will, which is why I had to dedicate most of the sideboard to turn 1 and turn 0 play. But if it can get off the ground it's hard to stop the momentum.

maybe cut the Eidolon of Rhetoric, or at least add a sideboard and put him on the sideboard, then maindeck Silverblade Paladin and Wolfir Silverheart. The pair works so well together and they're still awesome without each other. Also a Kessig Wolf Run can be fun when you're already smashing for 16 damage with Silverheart.

a friend of mine had a pretty innovative strategy for exactly the deck you're referencing. He jammed 4 Phyrexian Obliterator into the sideboard. Game 2 the opponent is going to side out all of their removal like Fatal Push to make room for Grafdigger's Cage and Rest in Peace. Then he just slams an Obliterator off Dark Ritual and they're like "GAH!!!!".
It seems worth 4 sideboard slots to throw off their whole sideboard plan because graveyards are very easy to hate in Modern and Legacy. Slamming an Obliterator the hard way gives the deck a dynamic new angle.

that being said, a split wouldn't be unreasonable, and diversifying the Indomitable Creativity back into 1 Nahiri, the Harbinger is an option. I did hit a Leyline of Sanctity the other day with her middle ability, which was cool.

also in Modern and Legacy it's much more preferable to use Emrakul, the Aeons Torn because of the Annihilator: 6. The new one is pathetic compared to the old one.
Edit: It wasn't Eldrazi Displacer that was bouncing her, I was confused. It was like Snap Cryptic or something that he was using to keep her off. But still, there are a million examples like that. She didn't never go off, but it seemed like she was dying more than going off, which is a problem.

yes I realize that about Nahiri, I was using her in this build up until recently. I was happy with the removal suite and the Platinum Emperion combo, but Nahiri was dying a lot more than she was going off with spaghetti face. The Indomitable Creativity takes more set up, but at least it goes off instantly and Emrakul (or at least an Emperion if the hit isn't lucky) are already on the table before they have a chance to do anything. It gives it sort of a Splinter Twin feel.
I tried the build once with an Indomitable Creativity as a 1 - of and Nahiri on top. I know it sounds weird, but I really feel like she was a weak link to rely on as a win con because it's so easy to just attack her, even with Lingering Souls to block. Last game I played her I had a guy just bouncing her with Eldrazi Displacer before she could ultimate.
