@vaughnbros said in Teferi Midrange:
Which calls into question as to why do you only want 3 copies of Narset/Leo? Why do you only want 3 removal if you’ve decided it’s good (I personally think trophy is far and away better)? Why only 2 Snapcasters if you are making deck building decisions around the card?
I’ve actually added a larger black splash to put 6-7 versions of the Chains effect in my deck now. Just like I’ve gone to 6 Forces. The consistency is a big component of the deck. It allows you to reliably play the same gameplan almost every game.
It’s just a suggestion though, if you don’t want to take it, you can go with what you have here.
My conclusion on the 2 Narset/1 Leo situation was based on A) those cards are only really good against other blue decks and I expect most players to play Shops or Dredge right now, B) I’m already playing 2 Teferi, Monastery Mentor, and the Snapcasters that also require (at least) 3 mana.
2 Snapcaster follows some of the same points. But I don’t think keeping something in mind when making decisions is a bad way to build midrange decks. In fact, I feel the opposite. If I’m going to play any number of Snapcasters having some diversity among my spells is added value (especially if they work similarly in most situations).
As to the consistency thing; like I said earlier, I’m pretty sure your list is playing a completely different style of game. It may be a better style. I don’t know. But where you see a bunch of 2’s and singletons I see packages of cards that operate along the same lines.
