Hey Sol,

We can communicate through this, or in comments on decks that you like. Check out the Q&A to see how to navigate and find things, learn how to format with card and name tags, and let me know if you have questions.

Elywood, I would suggest that you look at things that target ETB abilities. This list would be completely unaffected by a little Stax aimed at ETB abilities. Try Tocatli Honor Guard and Torpor Orb. There are many decks out there that focus on ETB abilities, with both Roon and Brago being about the most obvious, but some Meren and Riku also fill that role, and many combo decks depend on ETB abilities. Those two cards both efficiently shut down those generals, as well as ETB dependent combo decks. It is also pure flavor win to play cards in Queen Marchesa that hose Brago.

I think if I go for housing Paradox Engine, it will be much stronger than Treasure Nabber. I am currently stuck trying to figure out how much I tune for oppressive combo and storm decks, or maintain what has been for most of its existence the heart of the deck. If the later, Xantcha will likely make an appearance.

Serenity would be a disaster for me. I would lose all my stuff, and waiting for my upkeep would basically allow Jhoira to go off during her turn. I was actually cobsidering Rule of Law, and also Nevermore. Both would hose a large number of decks, not just Jhoira, but I am pretty sure the salt would be thick. Still thinking, but I basically need something to hose Jhoira in the first few turns or we all lose.

I had a win in a 1v1 against Kambal Lifegain Control today. I used Praetor's Grasp twice to steal both his Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood followed by a Boros Charm burn to start the infinite. It was beautiful to steal his wincon to beat him with his own strategy.

Older20 I agree completely. Mirage Mirror fills so many roles in my deck it is almost silly. I am not sure it has ever hit the table and not changed the game in my favor. The thing that is extra good about it is that, just like counterspells, no one ever expects clone effects in Mardu.

Elywood, I would go after what they do best. How do people win in your meta? Take a strategy that encourages overextending and the reversing that on them. I am actually in a similar meta right now since the most powerful decks are combo and control with non-combat finishes. My process has been:

  1. Don't lose.
  2. Copy/steal their stuff and beat them with it.
  3. Occasionally throw down my own wincon that doesn't turn out to me magnet for removal.

It is working pretty well, if not as perfectly as it was against purely combat focused decks.
