Northeastern Regionals @ New Jersey....

IDK the meta in my area is wide open, but probably like every other regionals and events it will be in faeries on top of number of played, but here is a list of tier 1 decks imo:

-Revalark
-Merfolks
-Faeries
-Doran
-BG Elves
-Quick'n'Toast

why?

well they are all proven top decks, and the most common decks you will see. Though i didn't state alot of decks, if you play a deck not on this list, odd's are you wont see it in your top8. If you do, it is either a new deck, a small event, or total lucksack. But basically... these are the decks to beat.

---

secret tech?? well what you saw me with with and what im bringing to regionals are two different things... yes i have more cards to add, some to removal and some obvious tweaks, but as for giving away my tech to this? not a chance.

---
hope this helps... but gl at yours

I'll be playing a monoblue Merfolk list, its been solid in most matches. The only problem I've been having is overextending against Firespout. xD

I'll be going to SoCal Regionals.

try some ignite memories in the board, they would help you with that match up.

Yes and no. While that'd be cool, it's not necessarily practical.

I'm making tweaks to normal Merfolk decks, but essentially, its the same. Not Ruess's meh list, though...

did mono white control/life gain fall off the map? with it being so aggro heavy (the meta), if you can hold off enough early threats to balance your life total, it seems that you should be good to go, or are people that are interested in white control just playing lark instead?

My work schedulehas recently freed up and I will now be able to get to my regionals......Deck of choice? A R/B control conglomaration, it's totally rouge and beats the crap out of all the non-fae decks minus swath storm.....fae is like 40/60....until board then I get 9 cards for that specific matchup which help a lot!

The cards I'm weak to are Faerie Macrbe and Extirpate antying in R/B to help vs these two cards......Pithing needle on macrbe? Anything else?

Faeries beat Lark, and Lark beats the decks that beats Faeries. But few of the other decks can beat both of them.

Maybe merfolk?

Regionals (american) is in June? I cannot play rl until August, so here is the deck I have been tinkering with recently:

// Deck file for Magic Workstation (http://www.magicworkstation.com)

// Lands
2 [PLC] Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth
2 [SHM] Reflecting Pool
4 [LRW] Secluded Glen
2 [10E] Underground River
4 [SHM] Sunken Ruins
8 [10E] Island (2)
2 [SHM] Swamp (4)

// Creatures
2 [SHM] Glen Elendra Liege
1 [LRW] Wydwen, the Biting Gale
3 [LRW] Shriekmaw
2 [FUT] Venser, Shaper Savant
4 [TSB] Shadowmage Infiltrator
3 [SHM] Sygg, River Cutthroat

// Spells
4 [MOR] Bitterblossom
3 [LRW] Cryptic Command
4 [CS] Rune Snag
4 [LRW] Nameless Inversion
2 [LRW] Profane Command
4 [TSP] Ancestral Vision

// Sideboard
SB: 3 [10E] Flashfreeze
SB: 3 [10E] Deathmark
SB: 3 [10E] Bottle Gnomes
SB: 3 [LRW] Sower of Temptation
SB: 3 [10E] Boomerang

It doesn't have a fantastic game vs Faeries, but the faerie-hate played in other decks doesn't work well against it, which is an advantage. It is better vs red than faeries. UB cannot deal with Bitterblossom, so that is why boomerang is in sb - I am testing it to see if it helps. The deck often win by bleeding the opponent dry off card advantage, before it drops a Liege to take the initiative.

If people want to test it and try it, they are free to do so.

I was thinking that tempo deck would be a solid call. Turn one Tarfire. Turn two 'Goyf (3/4 if it hits an elf). Turn three Tauren Mauler or Crusher. Use Ponder or Mystic Speculation to put excess lands on top. Obv Mystic Speculation is def better with Crusher but Ponder is better in general. Card drawing or filtering some great beaters and a bit of disruption or burn. Should be a solid call. (Thoughtsieze/Stupor/Acid-Moss/Rune Snag/etc...) (Flame Jav/Rift Bolt)

It's a shame that we don't have Artifact Lands in standard. Hey there is a Creature Land enter Dryad Arbor.

It's got to be almost as fast as the best aggro decks (Merfolk/RDW) and be faster then the combo decks (Swath/Lark/Swans). Also you need beaters that say you win if not answered vs the control decks. ('Goyf/Crusher/Mauler)

I have no real concept of a list but I think if you can combine really good beaters and disruption you could go all the way.
