@ChubbyRain How'd you find this? Guessed the URL?
edit: nevermind; the challenges finally appeared on the results list page.
Looks like WotC has posted MTGO decklists for the last two days, but the Challenges are nowhere to be found
Anyone know anything about this?
Some reflections on the list:
My experiences today:
R1: Dan9IN on Car Shops (W 2-1)
R2: IdraftTheBeatz on UR Harsh Wasteland Delver (W 2-1)
R3: ReneRandrup on Jeskai control? (L 1-2)
R4: tattocek on Jeskai Dack YP Delver (L 0-2)
R5: TonyMontana on Jeskai Mentor (W 2-1)
Had one particularly fun moment here game 2: t1 play Key, t2 Mana Drain their Stony Silence, t3 upkeep Vamp for Vault, Force their Force.
R6: Lovecoil on Dredge (W 2-1)
Lovecoil was exceptionally unlucky; they mulliganned to 1 games 1 and 3, and basically didn't do anything either of those games :/
Your opponents (and yourself!) will probably not appreciate identical art for different cards, regardless of what text is on there -- it's nice to be able to read the boardstate at a glance.
For moxen, people often acetone/eraser text off a basic land of the appropriate type. I've done this with the various diamonds (Charcoal Diamond, Fire Diamond, etc) because they look moxen-y.
For Ancestral I'm a fan of Shared Discovery.
I like Fatigue for Time Walk, as it captures the expression your opponent usually makes when you Snapcaster or JVP it back.
I'm surprised about 0 Pyroblast in the 75. IMO it's a pretty solid card right now that does everything from stopping broken draw spells, to cheaply fighting counter wars, to killing most resolved planeswalkers.
Overall I like this list though, nice mix of broken stuff happening.
In most Grixis decks I think I like 1 Hurkyl's main instead of 1 Grudge main -- at least if you have a way to Hurkyl's them on their end step, untap, and just win. (This is what I wound up doing in Gushbond Pyromancer pre-restriction, since you had tutor for Hurkyl's into storming off as an out vs Shops g1.) Then again, in your deck, Tinker is a good maindeck plan against Shops, too...
@joshuabrooks List is here:
Looks like Harsh Mentor didn't make the list.
@Battlegrounds_CT probably want to update the date in the body of the post :)
@desolutionist They went into effect this morning.
As always, amazed that you and Ryan are able to put this together so quickly. Thanks!
Was I really the only one running Pyromancer at Waterbury? That's kinda funny.
Pyro/Fastbond/Gush is certainly not the best deck right now, but it's a blast to pilot and having fun is what I went to Waterbury to do.
Like last year, I had a mediocre performance overall, but was undefeated by Mentor in the day.
@Griselbrother Don't forget wappla_'s "UWR Thalia" list! Very curious to see how that one does.
Apologies for being gone the past couple days, I got really sick.
Here are all the decklists I received. I am still waiting for decklist from @orbekh -- the one I received has only 59 cards main.
Looks like your connection to The Mana Drain was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
