Awful deck is awful


by Shyft- on 2009-12-25 21:52 CET

Agreed Lunari, that mono-w deck is pretty bad.


by Djinn on 2009-12-25 21:56 CET

The build is definitely bad, the deck concept is not so


by Manutkd on 2009-12-25 21:58 CET

gg marc_31 :)
Quenchable fire has been impressive.


by Krastino on 2009-12-26 00:07 CET

marc_31 deck is really bad.
First of all, he plays 22 land with a lot of 4 drops...u know what it means, right?
Second: Goblin Bushwhacker sucks, it's only good when u have a lot of other creatures to pump, as in Boros deck.
Third: u have almost no way to kill a Baneslayer or a Wall of Reverence. I think that Magma Rift is really needed and really strong.

The only good thing I see is Punishing Fire, more useful in mirror (Dragon's Claw) than vs some Baneslayer, War Monk or WoR.

Btw good job and good luck in master ;)

what a fucking metagame


by grenouille on 2009-12-26 00:23 CET

marc-31 and king lon list are so bad but gg to noobburn who seems make crypt pretty good vs rdw as it was its worst MU or nearly so if it keep the same advantages than before it is really a good list . did u build it by yourself?


by P_P4E on 2009-12-26 01:19 CET

I dont understand why people aren't going with ruinblaster maindeck. It hits something against everything, and it's not a wasted card otherwise.


by Benobi on 2009-12-26 03:10 CET

What's up with one-of Haunting Echoes in the sideboard, I've seen that in a lot of decks lately... is there some secret tech with that?


by Nickname7 on 2009-12-26 08:23 CET

We all want to be japanese


by Tuffy on 2009-12-26 10:37 CET

Echoes is in the SB because its good tech against anything NOT Jund and control.


by Pin-pan on 2009-12-26 10:44 CET

22 lands with a lot of 4 drops means that he beated yur well builded one???


by Pin-pan on 2009-12-26 10:47 CET

and who cares about baneslayer when he could kill you in 4 tunrs?


by Krastino on 2009-12-26 10:54 CET

Pin-pan, if he beatet me doesn't mean hi deck is better than mine. And u should know that decks with Baneslayer plays other dudes, like Wall of Denial, PtE, KotWO nad counters, so it's not difficult to play a Baneslayer when u are at 8 life....have u ever played the deck? Becausa UW is one of the worst MU....

P_P4E: I don't like Ruinblaster so much in this deck. It's good, but it's not what this deck wants...


by Manutkd on 2009-12-26 11:13 CET

Well I suppose his deck is not perfect, I was just congratulating him because I played against him. But it musn't be that bad, otherwise he wouldn't have reached top 2 :)
(However I also think bushwhacker isn't good in this deck)


by Simonixx on 2009-12-26 13:41 CET

i quote krastino. goblin ruinblaster is not good (4cc 2/1 haste in a deck like rdw that plays at 4cc elemental appeal or queenchable fire, or double hellspark or more other cards!).


by Jim-the-Rat on 2009-12-27 20:34 CET

Damn I want to see the mono-blue control list
