damnation t3 against zoo/affinity is bad? garruk t3 is bad? also, in the sb there's 2 curse that has cc5 and in the maindeck there a singleton garruk primal hunter...

1st place is not by any means a rock deck.

it's not like if you have sakura in your deck you have to play primeval titan/karn/etc xD.

Why no black source for Unburial Rites in UW Gifts?

So, a card that is little more than rampant growth, maybe rampant growth + 3 life, is good in this midrange deck? T3 Garruk is obviously better than t2 Garruk. That doesn't make it good, ofc.

And ofc, why is that deck better than Jund? ISNT

Maps obv doesn't knows what he's talking about

Rampant Growth in Jund is so horrible that in t2 Saito went 6-0 with those MD to beat the mirror
by maps on 2012-04-29 02:40 CET
Yeah, because t2 is totally the same as modern, right? Acceleration is totally the same in a format that is not defined in any way by land destruction and that is instead much faster, right...

Playing sakura lets you play 24 land,which isn't a huge amount of lands for a midrange/control deck that runs 4 tec edge.Having sakura in the deck helps to ensure you get your land drops AND the right mana in case you don't have two BB lands in hand ready for Liliana t3,it can make you attack with treetop village a turn before while playing something the same turn.Having it helps you accelerate into both garruk planeswalker,into damnation against zoo/affinity,lets you play faster deathcloud if you can play a walker and have him survive one turn while putting you ahead in the land count in order to make at least a land survive to the cloud itself.It helps you not lose the "land race" while being able to tectonic edge the opponent,all of this while saving you from one attack from a creature of the opponent,it even helps when you need to play eternal witness+removal spell/tarmogoyf/finks/liliana the same turn.It gets even better when you side in the more expensive stuff.I see no reason to judge sakura so bad in a deck like that.

By the way this guy must be idiot for playing a sakura right?
by maps on 2012-04-29 07:29 CET
I'm not saying he's an idiot for playing Sakura, just saying that it's wrong.

well this deck was played a lot one year ago be4 nacatl was banned cause it got very good matchup vs zoo obviously.I think at this meta jund is strictly better than it got to agree though it has good distruption most matchups in would like my 2 drop to be confidant and no elder nowdays and my 4 drop bbelf than ramping to deathcloud when i would be dead to storm most of times or to twin or propably mindlsaverd.Point is that sakura-tribe elder is ok in that deck but you are missing the point tha deck overall is bad in this current meta .
