Alright let's do a quick rundown of FNM #1 for AmonCats

  • Round 1: 1-2 Loss - Mono Red Burn, piloted by a very experienced and spikey player this was the best round of the night and was super tough. Turns 1-4 are taking a beating but generally I was able ...

Intriguing night, I think I'm actually pretty happy that I swapped the inspectors for cats:

  • Round 1: 2-1 Win - Jund Homebrew - seemed like a janky combination of the RG aggro with a splash of black, each of his turn 1s was an attune for his only swamp. Aside from ...

I only really try and do deck updates when the deck adds/loses an incredibly strong card or when the deck goes under massive renovation; this is definitely the former case. Losing Paradox Haze to the $2 rule is a sad loss for the deck ...

I know it's been such a short period of time from my last update, but I've been making it more of a priority to play some more and put more thought into my decks.

Cuts: Perilous Forays & Aura Mutation

Adds: Cultivate & Kodama's Reach

Perilous Forays I was finally able to pull off the dream with Perilous Forays with a board of 5 tokens, Ashnod's Altar, 6 lands in play, and Perilous Forays in hand. I don't like judging the usefulness of a card based on one game, but that really felt like the best case scenario to play the card and it just sat as a dead card in hand. The deck is just so reliant on tokens that paying 1 mana to sacrifice your tokens for lands that come in tapped just was going to put me so far behind. If the card itself was 2-3 mana or didn't have the mana cost to sacrifice tokens I might keep it in; but for now it didn't help me as much ...
