@rat3de i'm not even going to argue the fact that dredge and oath are way better strategies to win and they made a deck/archetype by themselves.... cage was there to fight them, to stop them.
You said cage didnt made those decks disapear.... they are still around... well, maybe because they had to fight cage back? they fought it back with decays ingots etc...
How is frenzy going to fight cage back? With the shatter in your hand? Or the one in the top of your library? Hmmmm.... just curious.
@IamActuallyLvL1 I know, I just think that it is interesting how there are non-PO streamers that I know of. You are doing a great job, and I really appreciate all vintage streamers. Although I have to say you really hit the salt hard last stream!
@khahan I'm just saying that if you want to actually stress test the card, you should play more than one. Otherwise your results are anedoctal at best
I tested a few copies in the 2 weeks leading up to the tournament, but didn't get enough time to really give it a good go. I went with 1 because of the number of shops decks in my meta. Its sided out in games 2/3 against shops because of the UU cost. Going to continue testing but honestly will probably go a different direction.
I have been thinking a lot about this deck and how it is played. You = need the Preordains to fix your mana base. If you are playing the Wasteland version then you have 6 fetch lands, 4 Wastelands, 1 Strip mine and 6 mana producing lands and 1 Library.
Preordain helps you fix that draw to get what you need when you need it and it also allows you to flip your Delver.
If you cut the Delver and focus on playing Young Pyromancer and Snapcaster Mage then Preordain is a flashback target to get more cards if you do not have anything better. Then, there is the blue stew aspect of using cantrips to draw into delve spells.
I do not think that they slow you down. They get you Xerox, if you do not want that then you may want to get into a more disruptive Hatebear style deck.
Hey all! So I ended up waiting until this morning to place order for blanks after a handful of people asked for a little extra time to confirm how many and what they wanted to order. I now have a tidy box of blank Tees inbound.
From here, I will be creating some Etsy links (you can check out as a Guest user, so no account required) in order to make shipping and payment easier for those people who don't use PayPal, so expect to get a link from me in the next couple of days!
I'm totally stoked so many people have been interested! If you missed out on this round and still would like a shirt, just let me know and we can work something out for sure, but right now my little production flow is going to prioritize those who have already submitted orders with sizes.
Well the Rods were to have Disruption against Outcome, but also to have a Permanent I can get back with Sun Titan... which Burtality and the like cant.
In that scenario just having Pernicious Deed is almost as good. You respond to PO with Deed for zed and they tend to not have much coming back to hand. I understand how Rod stones PO, but its something the pilots of that archtype have a plan for (Hurkyl's). Maybe a Stony, which requires dedicated removal. You could board into Chains as well which stops the deck cold and really just nugs your Preordains and restricted draw.
