Said on Control Zur...

#1

How about using Dispel instead of Spell Snare? The thought process is that the most vulnerable point in making your strategy work is to make sure Zur never gets to hit not even once, which will, almost all the times, be done using instant speed creature removal.

So don't you think that a counter that can almost always be used to protect Zur AND can always counter on a counterspell war is less narrow than a Spell Snare?


Not related, any tips on how to deal with Thrassios/Tymna (combo/control) decks reliably outside of having a Chains?

I decided for Collective Brutality, it kill most of what I want to kill, almost anything tbh, while still working as a discard outlet AND adding something my deck doesn't usually have any way to do, hand disruption.

Lots of times I knew my opponent had his combo ready on his hand and had to work a lot to prevent him from casting it, having a discard spell to tutor if I need could be very useful, all that on a discard outlet slot which is the best part.

The control vs control then combo wins matchup is something that happens basically everyday on my meta, yeah you will need some good politics to work around that scenario, sometimes I asked the control "how about you let me hit with Zur?, and get Grasp/ Remora or perhaps Rhystic Study instead of Necropotence?"

And sometimes I said "despite my reanimate hitting play or graveyard in the end, we are still both going to fight over it and be completely tapped while our Sididi's friend is holding his Ad Nauseam, is this what we really want to happen?"

mmcgeach hey man, you touched a couple times on the subject of your meta having lots of bear decks, are you having trouble regarding Aven Mindcensor? My opponents are actually tutoring for it asap, so I'm thinking about adding more removal, quite unsure what to go for tho, I'm considering Dismember because it can be played with coloress mana, meaning it can be used to kill Magus of the Moon as well...

The Magus of the Moon is also the main reason I'm not considering Massacre in the slot.

Also thinking about using Cabal Pit since I run Expedition Map already (still doesn't kill magus tho)

Thoughts?

I'm thinking of building a very close build to yours, do you think the deck can work without Tabernacle and Mishra's Workshop?

Also, do you choose not to run gaea's cradle?
