2nd and booo to combo decks

by Teh_Blues on 2008-01-01 05:36 CET

3rd dam.
No gobos in top3.

by TwoTrees on 2008-01-01 05:55 CET

Gobos suck.

Wake 4 life.

by Sebas_ on 2008-01-01 06:31 CET

Gobos Suck's

Combo decks Rulz

by TwoTrees on 2008-01-01 06:36 CET

I have to say, chimera was the best deck. Wake was second though, no other combo was too good.

by Sorrel on 2008-01-01 07:23 CET

I don't entirely understand how chimera *works*.

by thedarkness on 2008-01-01 07:42 CET

Ashnod's Altar + Saproling Cluster + Fecundity + 3 cards in hand = 35~ mana + 7-8 cards left in your deck = Heart of Ramos + Blaze for 30~

That's basically how it works.

by Daveslusher- on 2008-01-01 08:18 CET

Wake was the correct deck to play today. It's still the best control deck ever invented.

by Krejcik on 2008-01-01 10:59 CET

meh i tested against Wake and beat it. RL pulled out of the Trial. Pox 4 Life :P

Also I'd take Black/Red LRW/10th/TSP or Onslaught Block Goblins over mono red. More rounded and disruption w Thoughtsieze is strong.

And shame the D-Storm deck dropped after Round 3.

btw MYOS is a great format. I really hope to see more Trials for it in the future. Thanx for running it and hopefully we can get another next week.

by Holzi on 2008-01-01 11:55 CET

Most of the decks arent legal lol...

by on 2008-01-01 12:17 CET

isnt the name for the 1st deck cluster bomb

by Mirror_Image on 2008-01-01 12:59 CET

Oh well, congrats thedarkness... because of my stupid play you could won the Trial, so thanks ME for the dumbness =P

And that was for sure a GREAT game.

by Eldariel on 2008-01-01 13:39 CET

Meh. Wake is good, but not nearly the be-all, end-all. There were no good Goblin-builds around, which certainly affected things (all the played versions were either modern crap or Onslaught/Urza/10th, neither of which gets access to Ringleader - the true workhorse - and they didn't have SB enchantment removal either).

It's amusing to find that illegal Dragonstorm at 3-0 though. Congrats Holie, btw. Never thought you'd get that far after the testing session, but happy to be wrong!

by ykpon on 2008-01-01 13:45 CET

gj thedarkness, nice deck

by on 2008-01-01 13:52 CET

this format is really weird and deck design/card choices and which blocks to play really affect the game more than anything else, and u do realise ppl that thedarkness just ran tiagos deck from the invitational

by mp26 on 2008-01-01 15:37 CET

so you pick two sets next to each other along with any numbered editon?

by Krejcik on 2008-01-01 16:04 CET

REALLY surprized people didn't utilize 5thfor Pox or Geddon or even Mirridion for major control pieces Trinis or Crucible or Chalice.

Or even TO/RAV/5th Ichorid which is pretty solid even minus the Ashen Ghouls.

I was planning on running 5th/TE/TSP BW Pox(Maybe Mirridion over TSP but TSP is a goldmine for Win Conditions and Smallpox), which while it dismantles Wake, has trouble with Mono colored Gobs.

Anyway. It was fun and I hope theirs another Trial soon

by Burton911 on 2008-01-01 16:49 CET


nobody played Trixx :(

And why the Tooth guy played TSP over COK
Top > all

by Ownj00 on 2008-01-01 17:00 CET


tsp = vesuva

durrrrka, etc.

by Pit42 on 2008-01-01 17:30 CET

rofl, I played the 3-1 LOR/TSP/10th Goblins and lost against thedarkness =/..

Joaoxavier gave me the list, just horrible...

by Wrecked on 2008-01-01 17:44 CET

I played the TSP/Inv/10th fires, beat Wake game 1 then took him to like 4 both game 2 and 3, but he somehow regained it. Grats, at least I lost to someone in t3.

by Daveslusher- on 2008-01-01 17:54 CET


nobody played Trixx :(

someone in the 0-1 bracket played trixx

by Burton911 on 2008-01-01 19:14 CET

tsp = vesuva
durrrrka, etc."


but Top is just better

by HolieCows on 2008-01-01 20:38 CET

I just punted games 2 and 3 after winning game 1 against the darkness, win on the board both games just terrible.

I played TSP for Vesuva, yes I could have easily played the Tron, but I didn't want to. TSP also gives you Tormod's Crypt, which was very good against the dredge decks. I played against it a few times and it was nice to have some sideboard answer.

by TwoTrees on 2008-01-01 20:58 CET

Yeah Wrecked, other than game 3 of my tog matchup yours was surprisingly close considering wake should rape aggro.

by Wrecked on 2008-01-01 21:37 CET

Actually, I think one of the last two games I had you at 1, but could never draw the Fanatic or Incinerate. Then again, I made the mistake of only swinging in with Goyf when you were at 4.

by Krejcik on 2008-01-01 22:00 CET

anyone else also surprised that no one played Stasis? 5th Ed has so many things to base a deck on. Guess I'm old and stuck in the past though :/

by Eldariel on 2008-01-02 01:01 CET

Most of these decks are simply copies of the Invitationals-lists. That's why there isn't too much innovation yet. If this format became more common, then perhaps... Although I couldn't imagine why anyone would want to play Stasis online. Timelimit is quite the obstacle when your gameplan is to deck the opponent by skipping all your turns.

by perep on 2008-01-02 03:23 CET


by TwoTrees on 2008-01-02 03:53 CET

Yeah i can feel that there has to be better decks.

by aldaryn on 2008-01-02 09:27 CET

no one tried to build UGW gro/thresh? it seems like you could do IA/OD/10TH and play dryad, mongoose, werebear, brainstorm, fow, predict, mental note, swords to plowshares, counterspell, maybe jotun grunt...too bad divining top isn't in a core set...

by Krejcik on 2008-01-02 10:44 CET

man I tested 4 decks that did well prior to this trial (i missed the trial)

B/R T2 Gobs (doesn't count for innovation)

2 Versions of Pox that did really well
1 version of mono white 5th/TE/MR that's pretty badass (geddon, blinking spirit, wasteland, trinis, city of traitors, wrath, lotta pain)
2 versions of B/U reanimator which is STRONG in this format w 5th and TE or US with TSP or OD.

Stasis can work well here.Theirs cards in later sets to speed up your win condition. that and loads of creatures with vigilance.

Disappointed with lack of innovation.

by DH on 2008-01-02 16:04 CET

Someone played trix. Vs me, playing UW with Force, Counter-spell and -balance+Top, WW crits and sb Hokori.

I got the list from someone, and it played well, lost to Tog, though. Oh well.

by ChristPunchr on 2008-01-02 18:52 CET

"Stasis can work well here.Theirs cards in later sets to speed up your win condition. that and loads of creatures with vigilance."

Hopefully loads of land too because stasis mixed with aggro is awful unless you are running some way to untap everything each turn so you play more threats.

"1 version of mono white 5th/TE/MR that's pretty badass (geddon, blinking spirit, wasteland, trinis, city of traitors, wrath, lotta pain"

Wtf does 'lotta pain mean? Creatures or something?

by Krejcik on 2008-01-02 20:48 CET

i didn't mean aggro. i was thinking outloud about win conditions.

and for the other Q, play and see.

by ChristPunchr on 2008-01-03 02:58 CET

Just make a turbo stasis deck...

Despotic scepter
lim dul's vault
Howling mine
Feldon's cane

Etc etc etc.

MYOS is a rad format for people that have played for a long time and remember cool decks that did well...

by NahHolmes on 2008-01-09 06:23 CET

Gush is banned in legacy thus banned in MYOS thus makes Stasis suck. I think the only thing that can make Stasis work at all is Root Maze + Stasis + Chronatog or sub Root Maze for the Mir Block artifact but that's too slow at 4. Either way I tried and couldn't make it good. Basically a deck needs good GY hate to beat Bridge which I think people understood seeing all those Bridge decks in R1 losses, then it needs something to disrupt Enchantments (since RecSur/SapBurst are the top 2 netdecks) basically aggro sucks if you didn't notice. If there was a control deck that beats Enchantment based Combo, Bridge, and other control it would be the boss, all it would have to do would be make it past R2 where all the Aggro dies to dominate. Note that Bridge SB hates splashes to RecSur hate. I think an Ice Age/Time Spiral and w/e edition control deck could be house. You get Force/CS with IA and Teferi/Crypt/all kinds of control with TS block, most likely a black or white splash, I think the ideal deck lies somewhere in there.

Tooth and nail should run stuffy doll. If u cast trisk or doll then resolve a T&N its game.
