So Sedraxis Specter is worth the 4th color?
by RavensEffect on 2009-06-06 05:18 CET
Specter seems to be becoming a normal card for block now, so i guess its worth 4th color.

I think the first place deck could be really good, but I'd just abandon the whole "Accel into threat" thing. Just play volume in this format. Turn 2 they have terminate and path just like everyone else, so accelerating into stuff is kind of a waste of space. You could then change your mana base around and make it better too. Also I'm not sure madrush cyclops is good enough to play, either. You need stuff that makes removal irrelevant in this format. He kind of does that as he turns himself into a burn spell, but if he dies to bimuinous blast then, well, whats the point? I'd cut those and hirarchs and add bituminous blast and resounding thunder.

This is what i hate about m-l sometimes... The #2 deck is a horrid literal copy from MODO season #2 champs..... The only reason the guy played 2 Spellbreaker was due to him being unsure about the potency of Grixis Control & 5cc w/ counters on MODO. Considering MODO is more diverse and M-L block seems to be tuned more towards Jund Aggro prior to this trial, the correct choice is -2 Spellbreaker and +2 Slave of Bolas for the maindeck, but alas m-l terds find it better to just spank an exact card-for-card list from the net without considering why each card choice was made. Also, little to nobody plays Wall of Denial here so the 2 sideboard slots to Fleshbag Marauder are a waste..........

Yeah, he's totally a retard for copying a successful deck but not switching 2 good cards for 2 different good cards.

Poxi, when you know so well what's wrong with the deck. Why not pilot it yourself and win a trial? I don't see you doing that ¬¬
by Xarls on 2009-06-06 12:07 CET
Oh yeah it really is worth the 4th colour, you know sometimes it is fucked by magma spray/celestial purge but if not, people usually kills it so you just unearth next turn and make them discard. And if they don't kill it..well..it never happened but I swear it's a huge advantage.

I tried imagining that, but everytime I close my eyes I only see naked girls :(

P_P4E, explain why on fucking earth Spellbreaker, as far as m-l metagame is concerned, is better than slave... Else stfu scrub.

I played the same deck as the 2nd place here in real life today but -2 Spellbreaker Behemoth +2 Madrush Cyclops. The deck worked really good. I went 8 - 1 (games0 vs Fast Jund (more aggroish) and lost in the finals to Naya 2 - 1 after 2 mulligans in the 3rd game.

ok for all the small minded ppl out there hating on me all i did was quickly pick a deck on Deck check for somthing to play.. ive had no testing exp. and no block exp. basically i picked a deck and played it. so dont hate on me for how it was made it wasnt my choice on meta... i just wnted to play in the trial and had nothing built..

I never said it was better or it was worse, I said you shouldn't call him a retard for not making the switch.

fast2damax: ignore him, it's the best way to deal with players who think they are better than they are, and think everyone cares about what they think
