Tinker colos vs anything that removes graveyard

posted in Vintage Strategy read more

Yeah crop rotation and fastbond works now that misstep is restricted

And Loam might see play now that karn tormods is restr, and less graveyard hate with golgari dredge decimated.

Yes. The deck is actually quite good, Im not going to go into game details because it takes far too much writing and effort to do, but it has good matchups vs almost anything, bug matchup can be very interesting but is among the less great ones. Oath can be a bit tough too, but its do-able. It's all dependant on your meta.

Stax matchup is good.

I'm gonna switch back to the previous version to the +1 tundra +1 balance - 1 volcanic island - 1 punishing fire again.

Even if you have dack stealing occasional pearls, always be able to cast Mentor is strong. You already have intuition for the 1 punishing, and balance is good vs dredge but mostly survival. Now Lavinia is coming in so Lotus petal is maybe less hot, but you can reb lavinia. Also so many planeswalkers + squee in yard for a balance. Balance can also be replayed with a jace, and or not graveyard dependant sweeper.

Last tweak:

The manabase a bit more stable now, although mentor is tougher to cast but 3 sources should do it. SB vs dredge stronger, and vs blue decks. Cut Balance, too situational.

final 2019 new year deck!

Lotus petal for speeding up a turn 1 with jace or fayden, works good with treasure cruise dig delving and jace 5, and balance + a monk, plus better colors for assassin's trophy and overall manabase. Slightly strengthening the sb for dredge matchup with a rav trap to keep up the speed instead of a reb, so you can cast that rakdos charm in the end. Lots of fetches for a delve and jace 5 plus right colors.

New update:
assasin's trophy vs leyline void/rest in peace and vs oath, or bazaar dredge. You can use jace with it. Gush is out... while a great card, most people will still waste-target only your groves anyway so you dont get to use it.

@macdeath
Thanks.

Maybe the land idea should be tested. It looks a little slow and requires mana, which the bazaar deck is sorta slow at. But testing would tell. Usually you kill with colos not damage...

Gush is not as great in this deck as others, but it still has its tricks why it stays. You can use it as regular mana boost+against wastelands with a little minus as the opponent usually tries to kill your groves which you cant bounce. The gush lands can go to fayden discard or bazaar.

If theres a ton of workshop you can add more ancient grudges which is a fine card with bazaar and intuition. Theres just no room! You need a lot of blasts against leovold and control in general. Rebs are good right now, always been but stops many key drawing spells anything blue matchup wise paradox, oath mentor etc etc and good with fayden.

3 rakdos is fine. You have a demonic tutor to find one, if you dont draw it by the ton of card drawing, and you have jace to cast them again. If youre afraid to make it until then, theres intuition for loam and strip mine. Theres also Balance to handle bastards.

There should be 1 more fetch and 1 volcanic less in the list also.

Actually finally decided on this, cut a land again to bring in mana crypt (again!)

This makes gush and loam weaker, but with jace you can use those grips better and Balance/1 mana crypt spell for mentor+intuition better as well. Also dack can use stolen moxes better without stony silence.

If theres a lot of aggro, you can +1 Balance - 1 red elemental blast.

Which i think is alright especially in paper.

Balance is ok vs dredge, you dont lose anything vs bug/survival decks maybe a few random goblin and white weenie but the oath/paradox/mentor matchup gets a little less but oath should still be strong with 2 krosan grip. Paradox is usually a fair matchup anyway.

posted in Decks read more

You use intuition to search for 1 loam, 1 strip mine and then a squee or punishing fire etc.

Yeah deck takes some practice to know how to play since there are a lot of options all the time. To the opponent it doesnt look like youre doing much but at your side you draw a ton of cards and keeping things in control until you win.

(Testing SB +3 Krosan Grip,
Krosan grip helps vs leyline of the void, oath, yawgmoth's bargain etc, rest in peace but also vs Ravager/Ballista that cant activate.)

Grip takes care of sensei top too! Krosan destroys tormod's crypts and nihil spellbombs and likes without activation!
