Been playing competitively since Khans of Tarkir standard, where my brewed Mardu Midrange won me my first major tournament! Ever since then I love to play tier 2 decks in standard, usually because they’re the most fun.

I feel like with the new daybound and nightbound mechanics, that Hircine’s ability to flip werewolves isn’t very relevant.

All of those werewolves with day bound and nightbound couldn’t be transformed by him, I’m pretty sure.

Is this for arena or for magic online?

I think this is a really cool deck idea. I think Lantern of Insight would provide much more value than Altar of the Brood and with more Codex Shredder you can try to trap lands on top for your opponent.

The deck seems a little weak to non-damage based removal such as Fatal Push, but I think it’s a really unique idea that has potential.

This deck is just stupid to look at. Thank you so much and I’m definitely testing this on mtgo soon.

Hey man the best I’ve ever done was going 5-4 at and SCG Open. I also went 4-4 at a PTQ. (Besides my SCG Classic win, which I don’t count because it was less than 50 people). So making top 32 is nothing to scoff at. That’s impressive!

You’re a pro? That’s sweet! What constitutes being a “pro”? And what other pros are you referencing? Just curious.

I agree that calling a judge is annoying and extreme. I usually would just explain why you can or cannot take back a game action (like if information were revealed as in your example), and tell them I’d be more than happy to call a judge to explain it.

I disagree, slightly. GP’s while “casual” day one, is still COMP REL. Just because they are more casual players than you are (which… how would you even be able to tell who is casual and whose not? If they’re at a COMP REL event they’re automatically not casual players by definition).

Those players need to learn how to maintain a game state, and learn that you cannot change an action once you’ve reached a certain threshold. If you go to cast a spell but realize it doesn’t have legal targets, that’s fine. You can take that back, you get a warning and move on.

But if my opponent casts Hero's Downfall on my Sedgemoor Witch and forgot the Ward trigger; and they’re at 3 life… no. You can’t let that slide. They need to learn to be deliberate with their moves if they want to participate in COMP REL events.

It could be something you did, witnessed or had done to you.

Mine was something I did. It was an FNM, I was 2-0 and got paired down into a guy who was 1-1. This guy was a known hot head when things didn’t go his way, but it never bothered me. It was amusing to watch him rage sometimes.

Anyways it was KTK Standard and he was playing some sort of 4 Color deck. I wasn’t really sure tbh, he had only cast 1 copy of Abzan Charm and 1 copy of Siege Rhino with some blue mana sitting on his side of the field. So again, wtf was this guy playing?

He was at 1 life after my attack step. It was game 1 and I had 2 cards left in hand.

He untaps, draws, and casts a siege rhino.

“Trigger, I go to 4?”

“In response I’ll cast Crackling Doom

“Oh alright, so I go to 2?”

“… No you’re dead. I cast it in response to the Siege Rhino”

He flipped out. He was like “wtf dude why didn’t you just kill me on your turn?! Wow you’re such a jerk!” He then put his deck away, dropped the tournament and left the shop.

I felt a little bad in hindsight, but it was game 1! I had no idea what he was playing and wanted a little more information before I killed him. I didn’t happen to get any more information, because he just cast a 2nd Siege Rhino instead of a new spell.

I honestly just wanted to know how to sideboard against them better.

What’s your dick move moment?
