BATUTINHA RLZ!!!!!!!!!!!!

by grenouille on 2009-03-25 02:24 CET

just 1 little question ... is vexing susher really better than gutural or sthelse as it dies on fallout?

by Egnirys on 2009-03-25 02:53 CET

Iºm in portugal right now whoooo
Batutinha congratz

by Verdana on 2009-03-25 03:01 CET

oh man that needs gargadon and body double so much you make me cry :(

by Batutinha on 2009-03-25 03:26 CET

I win 2 Trials + 1 Master with my list in 1 week

by Super_Prep on 2009-03-25 04:22 CET

Metzel - retard retard retard. Anyways onto the decks and my freaking deck disscussion, but its being halted by common ignorant stupidty that allowed southern bigots to make prisons and instituions the way they wanted hmm? Oh well, now for the decks, Lark control is relatively strong, its got a combination of 2/2's and a revilark along with a 5c control engine built in? So what happens when people don't look at previous decks? Thats right they lose again, this time because as by popular vote they dont SB right. I might've meant stroke better or Side board. Burrenton, Glen, and of course why not, and Vexing Shusher. Thats a dang good sideboard, jeez I wish I saw that coming, lets see got the red decks, got the blue decks, and got all the green stuff to. Yuppppp Dark bant is good too. Deck #2 What happens when you add Bant and Doran together? You get a deck that just won a standard trial duh metzel. Lots of reasons why it did win not just because the player had a better IQ then the rest. (sorry for the insult). Deck #3 (no comm-hmm-ents).......

(players I got one word for you that word is laters!)

by Conkisstador on 2009-03-25 05:51 CET

mind_game are you on acid?

by on 2009-03-25 06:08 CET

Batutinha can you win the first game
(before sideboard)
with your UWR Lark deck
against a B/R Blightning aggro deck?

by Finntroll on 2009-03-25 07:43 CET

I'll have 2 of whatever Mind_Games is having.

Also, Kurse speaks teh truuf

by coldfirero on 2009-03-25 08:33 CET

That was the only deck that I didn't want to play in the finals. It's almost impossible to win against it with my list if he's not screwd / has a decent hand.

Time for finding solutions.

[ Later Edit ] Funny no one else managed to get at least one win with Dark Bant even after i was Top3 last trial with it

by TugaChampion on 2009-03-25 11:30 CET

The thing with dark bant and those 5c aggro decks is that they lose to spectral procession decks. Just look at the PT. The guy playing Dark Bant had an insane draw in G1 against LSV and demolished him. In the other games LSV didn't give him a chance (although he got lucky by drawing those Anthems at the right time).

Dark Bant doesn't care much about volcanic fallout, that's a point in favor for them there's probably still more Spectral Processions than Volcanic Fallouts. When this changes it's the right time to play Dark Bant.

by xiko on 2009-03-25 12:16 CET

replace snakeform with warhammers?

by Shindeiru on 2009-03-25 12:57 CET


Seems like URW Lark is a deck to keep an eye on.

by coldfirero on 2009-03-25 13:17 CET

Against Spectral Procession (SP) you have 4 x Scullers + 3 x Gaddock Teeg. After sideboard you got the Archers to kill the spirits / BB tokens.

Regarding Snakeform it's my only solution to Stillmoon Cavalier. Besides that it's a decent removal / combat trick.

[ Later Edit ] After SB against BW tokens you also have Wispmare to deal with BB / Anthems

by TugaChampion on 2009-03-25 16:28 CET

Even with all that the match up is pretty much terrible and only insane draws can beat it (like we saw at the PT).

by Batutinha on 2009-03-25 16:42 CET

@TH3M3RC1FUL: Yeah, It is possible, with the help of wall + lark, or with sower + reveillark playing Mind Stone in turn2

by Beto_cL on 2009-03-25 16:53 CET

gj batu, congratz.

Gonzalo chupa pijas

by Conkisstador on 2009-03-25 17:23 CET

you have no answer for Doyo, screw stillmoon

by coldfirero on 2009-03-25 18:55 CET

What is a Doyo ?

by Super_Prep on 2009-03-25 20:51 CET

Nope I don't do drugs, and I'm a fly, fresh, clean, lean, ass killing machine.

by TugaChampion on 2009-03-25 20:53 CET

wtf? this mind_game guy has serious mental issues...

by OldBear on 2009-03-25 20:58 CET

I do not recall anyone saying they want to be like you, you seem a little deluded.

by onecleanceli on 2009-03-25 21:50 CET

isnt snakeform another answer to an evoked lark?

by mtgsoldier on 2009-03-25 22:17 CET

Mind_Game is my hero, the first coment was cool but the second its like the apocalypse prophecy.
So ill quote it:

"Nope I don't do drugs, and I'm a fly, fresh, clean, lean, ass killing machine."

When someone wants you to take drugs, just say this phrase and its gg.

Btw, im outa here , until bautinha stops wining..

by coldfirero on 2009-03-25 23:45 CET

"Isnt snakeform another answer to an evoked lark?"

It is, but you need to keep your mana open and he can still counter it with Glen / Negate.

by Super_Prep on 2009-03-26 00:06 CET

Haha, stops winning... well you all better Stroke Better! Anyone get it sideboard better??

by coldfirero on 2009-03-26 00:19 CET

Is it just me, or Mind_Game is really off topic?

by Madstrike on 2009-03-26 06:33 CET

2x mind stones? thats a weird number for that kinda of card...

by sandoiche on 2009-03-26 16:57 CET

cheating is tech :D

by inzaghi on 2009-03-26 17:09 CET

Nice one tugas .................oh wait

by Husapi on 2009-03-26 22:25 CET

15 cc4 11 cc5... TWO mindstone

by OldBear on 2009-03-27 00:05 CET

I agree the maths of the deck looks like something from the dark ages of appentice trials.

by Verdana on 2009-03-27 01:05 CET

you cant really count mulldrifter as a cmc5, but even then, I agree 2 mindstone is kinda pointless.
