Doomsday post gush restriction

  • An unfortunate collateral victim the recent Gush restriction is my favorite unrestricted Magic card, Doomsday. Can it be good without Gush?

    I've been tinkering with several lists, and they're all pretty bad. The best I've got so far is some version of this kind of turbo-Doomsday list that wants to Ritual into bomb or Duress + bob on turn 1, and win before your opponent can get their act together. I feel like I should just be playing a dedicated storm list, though. (Sideboard is of course very provisional.)
