Leyline / Null Rod / Stony Silence all stop Belcher.

I like having a teamdeck and it placing well. Even if CChildress had to walk over his other teammembers to the top. Feels like a step in the right direction.

Isn't BUg control just team america?
by moscowdemon on 2012-06-10 02:07 CET
Team America is pretty different from BUg Control.

That's not team America :/

If belcher wins the die roll against stax it can just win twice with turn 1 goblin tokens (which is fairly normal for the deck). If stax gets a turn it's usually pretty bad.

I won both games between turns 5-8.

Why no 15 Island sideboard? Confused..

Stax should never lose to creature or most definitely combo decks. i swear i love sphere of resistance. My stax plays with it and no one else can deal with paying 1 more mana for spells. It throws their gameplan off too much.

While I think Sphere of Resistance is a great card, it deprives you of more opportunity to play your more powerful cards (all 4cc, Elspeth, Moat, Humility) than it does depriving your opponent of playing their 1-2 cc cards. There's no way it can be played in a Dutch Stax shell which is by far the superior build of any Stax variant.

straca3: burning wish on island isn't just what it used to be in legacy i guess

The thing with stax is that you need to basically create an effective stall, and lock it out with other stuff before you die. This should be obvious to people, but the main problem is that when you face something like a combo deck that has multiple wincons, you have to basically play with what you are given and lock out each threat as you go.

Any deck that goes first turn trinisphere beats belcher. So yes, agreed no first turn trinisphere = bad draw. You should really never expect to beat belcher with stax without that draw. Like if I were playing against belcher with stax, i would expect to lose every time i said "go" without a trinisphere on the board.
