I play 4 vaults main and instead of cloudthreshers main I play another command and another eyeblights ending.

last time I played I won 500 bucks cash


the list seems pretty solid if our lists/sbs were only 3 cards off

there are a lot of gb lists out, and this is the first one ive seen that looks good imo. even lacking lelves. its got nameless and eyeblights for the reveal slots for vanquisher and palace. and no confusion over what to do on turn 1 between seize and lelves. I always felt bad for running blossom and thresher in the same list tho =P

what part about the rev matchup is bad? gy recursion, disruption, fulminator, sower, etc? relic might be better than macabre if you want gy removal, or maybe toss a mtn in to fetch with civic and throw jund charm in sb if it is that difficult of a match.

Why? Civic provides card advantage. And has a fatter body. llanowar elves is pointeless if there's no Imperious perfect.

No llanowar Elves or perfects because it's Rock, not elves. Although my partner played a similar deck with elves in it and it was much worse. Bitterblossom is good against the better decks. Also, sometimes thresher + blossom hurt but they're both very good against faeries and toast.
