I love how that is not suicide black. First!

by NahHolmes on 2007-03-15 02:08 CET

I actually technically lost Round 4. In game 3 vs. Lands.com he stalled me out with a Zuran Orb and Life From the Loam but I had an Ensnaring Bridge out and he had no chance to damage me before he decked himself so we played a 15 minute game and he went down to 16 or so cards in library then time ran out and he admitted he had no way to win but time. So he had to go eat and he ended up scooping since he agreed that it was a gay way to win. Thx to Cabof for that. Everything else was an easy W, this meta is way too predictable.

Is Cursed Scroll your only way to get around COP: Red or Rune of Protection: Red?

by Wiley on 2007-03-15 02:29 CET

Your mother?

by Wiley on 2007-03-15 02:36 CET

Also sui black should have carnophage and soul reaver (or wahtever it's called).. I think

by SpareSocks on 2007-03-15 02:48 CET

you're dumb i hate you

by SkaTista on 2007-03-15 02:50 CET

i like red deat. =P

i love aggros decks.

by SarcasticRat on 2007-03-15 03:06 CET

Hopefully everyone netdecks that burn deck so I can crush everyone for the next two weeks or so.

by NahHolmes on 2007-03-15 03:31 CET

@Wiley- die
@Oedipus- Would be more relevant if anyone played COP/ROP, I took the Anarchys out of the side because I judged it to be irrelavent otherwise there would be 3. I put in REBs instead and never sided them in.
@Skatista- Yeah I love that deck I almost played it forreal.
@SarcasticRat- I hope everyone plays it too, it would be like pushing the reset button on the current meta, lol.

by CaptainPayne on 2007-03-15 04:38 CET

I just want to say that I'm not a huge fan of Legacy, only because it seems to be my worst format. I asked Equinox for a Legacy deck a few weeks ago, and the list you see above is what he gave me. I didnt lose a game until running into NahHolmes, and there is really no way for me to win that matchup. Closest game i won all day was game 2 of the first round, where i won after mulling to three. He was running vial/slivers, and I smashed him with Infest.

by NahHolmes on 2007-03-15 05:38 CET

Red Death is a good deck, but part of what makes it good is it is very strong against Combo, which noone plays on M-L really because like 5/10 games are against disruption decks. Of course it's a very good deck on it's own and can certainly steal wins but the whole reason I picked Burn was it's high win % vs. both Goblins and Black Disruption and judging from the last Trial, I assumed both would be heavily played (and luckily I was right). So everytime the meta gets predictable I'm prime for a sweep, because Legacy happens to be the one format I fully understand (partly because it changes so slowly). I should write an article but my time unfortunitly is spread very thin between Calculus and writing programs for school. Maybe some day. PS- Infest is hot in the current M-L meta but how did Dystopia work for you? I would rather run Wretch or Engeneered Plague or even Cursed Scroll here personally but how did it work out for you?
*EDIT* Also someone change my deck name to "Homicide Red" LOL

by idraleo on 2007-03-15 11:33 CET

this is one of the worst burn buildings i ever seen -.-

by R4nd0m on 2007-03-15 13:49 CET

wow you guys suck, especially NahHolmes.

Gogogo Wiley.

by NahHolmes on 2007-03-15 14:17 CET

@idraleo haha I dug up your version of Burn...
2 Barbarian Ring
17 Mountain
4 Lava Spike
4 Lightning Bolt
4 Magma Jet
4 Chain Lightning
4 Incinerate
4 Flame Rift
4 Fireblast
2 Flamebreak
2 Price of Progress
4 Rift Bolt
3 Flames of the Blood Hand
2 Thunderbolt
1 Flamebreak
2 Price of Progress
3 Sulfuric Vortex
2 Sirocco
4 Pyrostatic Pillar
3 Anarchy

Wow 2x Thunderbolt MD I stand corrected, you obviously know enough about the worst Burn build ever to build it yourself, so you may be right about my deck. Meanwhile you decided to run 2x Flamebreak MD even though it is like a Lightning Bolt + Wrath of God vs. the best Aggro deck in the format, yeah I see your logic though, you had to make room for 2x Thunderbolt. Also no Cursed Scroll is bad and you seem to have been fooled into thinking Lava Spike is somehow better then Lava Dart (which is house) and also that Flame Rift and (LOL) Rift Bolt have any place in a Legacy deck.

by ChristPunchr on 2007-03-15 19:31 CET

I don't get why the mba deck is called suicide black...there is confidant and fetchlands...whoa...holy self destruction. Who is naming these decks? Red death has been on manadrain or whatever for ages. It is a cool deck...just don't tell the forums that because it get criticized plenty.

by BloodyAngel on 2007-03-15 21:29 CET

nahholmes nice build congrats... plz have my babies

by NahHolmes on 2007-03-16 00:53 CET

@Christpuncher- I was under the impression that Anwar at the Source made the deck as a response to Deadguy needing a quicker finish.

by ChristPunchr on 2007-03-16 02:10 CET

Might have been, that would make sense but I am not going to pretend to know its exact origins. All I know is that alot of people being negative towards it. The mana drain is the site that I have spent alot of time reading through in the past though. I find that if a deck doesn't place well in any of the tourneys that they list, people won't like it. Oh well grats on the burn win. Actually a pretty techy burn deck imho.

by Eldariel on 2007-03-17 12:25 CET

There's a disturbing lack of blue making it to the top. Maybe I should start playing again.

Christ: Red Death Top 8d at TMLO AND GAGG just few weeks ago. Although Anwar DID draw a tad crazy, it still goes to show that the deck is strong.

by NahHolmes on 2007-03-17 18:50 CET

Yeah I was pretty sure his debut with the deck (about a year ago) won a couple duals or something also, but I could be wrong.

nahholmes have my babies
