Here is the build for StuBi that I'm working on.

Lime and Salt

It just needs four cards to come out, but I need to test a bit more to work out which ones.

StuBi came third with a good pool, and managed 9th with a bad pool, this prerelease weekend.

He is MUCH better at building and playing Sealed decks than I am.

Thinking of building a deck for him with the 12/12 with Trample and the 4/8 with Flying, Double Strike, Vigilance, Trample, and Indestructible.

Are you going to prerelease?

I wasn't interested but it turns out that StuBi IS.

Very out of character for him.

So I will drag myself along to a couple of events.

6CMC isn't THAT big a cost, in the current meta.

Games are usually still being decided by that stage.

Torrential Gearhulk is cast then.

Oh ... my god.

Could this mean that we will be getting an even BETTER version of this Minotaur Planeswalker in the Rivals of Ixalan set?

Are Minotaurs about to become even stronger?

Look at his bloody flame lash. A molten chain.

Oh, Era of Innovation is really interesting. I'll check it out; thanks much!

Thanks so much! I really appreciate your inputs; you've given me a TON of things to think on and test! Here are some initial thoughts:

  • In testing so far, there's almost always been something useful to do with Vault of Catlacan. Extra +1/+1 Counters and Servos from Animation Module for sure, but also huge Walking Ballistas, tutoring with Inventors' Fair, or block-then-bouncing Glint-Nest Crane or Whirler Virtuoso.
  • Nezahal, Primal Tide is an intriguing option ... though The Locust God might be better in that kind of role. I'll have to check them out.
  • Maverick Thopterist is worth looking at for sure ... not sure why I hadn't thought of him earlier!
  • Yeah, I'm not sure about Metallic Mimic either. The card is pretty much terrible on its own, but it's just sooooo good with Animation Module (choosing Servo), Whirler Virtuoso (choosing Thopter), and especially Walking Ballista (since we can then tutor for it Whir of Invention after choosing Construct).
  • The board definitely feels a little weird without some sweepers ... but so far, the deck hasn't really needed them (I found they often hurt me worse than my opp, plus it can just chump-block so effectively). But yeah, since we will almost certainly see more "can't be blocked", Trample, and Lifegain now, I probably need to just plan on it ...

Thanks again!

Thanks much for loading up all the new Transform cards!

I know you've been super-busy with other stuff on the site, but can you go ahead and link Storm the VaultVault of Catlacan?
There are a bunch of others too, from this earlier post ... but that's frankly the only one in which I'm interested :-D

Said on UR Modules ......


Remember Animation Module, Decoction Module, and Fabrication Module from Kaldesh Draft?

Well, I've been messing around with an extremely janky but surprisingly powerful Module deck online ... and after the bans today, I'm excited about trying it out in irl.

Like I say in the deck description, I think the mainboard is pretty solid (though I go back-and-forth on 2x Reverse Engineer vs. 2x Opt).
But I'm not at all not sure about the sideboard ... it's not bad, but I've no idea what the optimum mix of counters/removal might be now, nor on whether I want Metallic Mimic/Foundry Inspector/Chief of the Foundry/something else ...

Thanks in advance for your thoughts and suggestions!

Sounds like Prerelease was cool; good for StuBi! And that deck sounds insane!

I've actually been messing around with a super-jank Artifact deck online ... after the bans today, I'm surprisingly excited about playing Standard again.

If you get a chance I'd of course LOVE your thoughts on the deck: UR Modules (RIX). If you don't, no worries at all!

Yeah, Thrun, the Last Troll isn't splashy, but he comes down at least a turn earlier than Carnage Tyrant (and often two or more), so he's much better in an opening hand. And the win (once he's down) is just as inevitable. Plus Thrun's regeneration ability makes him more more useful in a wider range of match-ups. All that said, you've obviously tested the Tyrant and have found it better than 'meh', so we went ahead and moved it.

Also, we're so glad to hear this has proven helpful! If you haven't already stopped by PonzaMTG on Reddit, we'd encourage you to do that as well!

Finally: I really enjoy Xenagos, the Reveler, tbh. At first glance, he seems kind of like some weird budget alternative for Chandra, Torch of Defiance. But the hasty 2/2 Satyr tokens accumulate fast and can do some SERIOUS work, on either offense or defense.

Thanks so much, and draw well!

Oh, oops! Well, please don't hesitate to holler if you ever want to pick up the deck yourself. We're ALWAYS happy to talk Ponza!

Draw well!

I just noticed it on Kizmetto's Polyraptor² Squared.

Here I am about to post. And here's what happens when I click 'Preview your comment'.

That's awesome that it's working for you and your meta, but like we say above Thrun, the Last Troll is generally better when we need Hexproof or Can't be Countered and Inferno Titan is generally better when we need a big beater.

It's the user icon in the upper right ... Dorotheus mentioned it turning yellow in an earlier post.

And welcome to T/O!

January 14, 2018 10:53 a.m.

I tried to post to your deck but cannot. Solid deck though; +1!

I noticed the yellow icon (like I wasn't logged in) too ... I hadn't noticed that before, but that's definitely a symptom.

January 14, 2018 9:53 a.m.

I just posted two comments on Ponza.dec (Deckbuilding Primer), so something is fixed ... for now, anyways :-)
