Too. Much. Lorwyn...

No, seriously, Lorwyn ain't that good.

by Conkisstador on 2009-05-29 20:59 CET

Ponza =df: A red-based land destruction tempo deck that wins by putting an efficient threat on the board and then negating the opponent's resources to combat that threat.

mrwegle's deck is RDW.

schwip's deck has so many improper card choices.

by Raves on 2009-05-29 21:01 CET

Well I can definitely see the 1st deck why you would need Lorwyn that's just nuts.

Now the rest I dont' understand. I wanted to run a combo deck personally.

by SchwipSchwap on 2009-05-29 21:06 CET

Conkisstador: thank you for the feedback.
I actually don't really like the decklist either. Just played it because I hardly lost a match with it. You care to elaborate on some possible changes without changing the basic strategy of the deck? :o)

Thank you in advance.

by Eldariel on 2009-05-29 21:42 CET

Conki: The deck isn't really RDW since the whole "accelerated fattos"-part isn't RDW; RDW is controlling and cards like Seething Song and Chrome Mox just don't fit that plan. I thought I saw Molten Rain and Stone Rain there hence the name, but now that I look at it more closely, it's obviously Big Red.

And I understand Lorwyn in list 2; it's Intuition/Demigod after all. The other two though would probably be much better without it.

by mrwegle on 2009-05-29 22:03 CET

My deck is preety good. It has cards to finish game very quickly and can win game even after Cop :red +loxodon hierarch.
Painter's Stone is bad match even with 6 card sb.
I won r3 against Bushviper (Painter's Stone) only because topdecked needle in right moment and he didn't drawed chill
Eldariel how u were playing big red\ponza\RDW in this format? I tryied manny versions and think that this is one of the bests

by dv8r on 2009-05-29 22:45 CET

mrwegle: I honestly don't understand why you have mirrodin over ravnica

by Eldariel on 2009-05-29 23:04 CET

I'd definitely consider multicolor with Ravnica. But what I'd really try is Tempest with Price of Progress for SB and the Pup-suite, plus Wasteland. Also opens up the whole "Dragon Stompy"-style with accelerated lands, Trinisphere & Chalice of the Void.

Otherwise I'd consider Time Spiral for Magus of the Moon, Gathan Raiders, Keldon et co. (actual choices depending on the style one is going for).

And for RDW, I'd definitely include Odyssey since Grim Lavamancer is just busted and Fire Bolt, Lava Dart et al. are all decent. Other would probably be Tempest, Mirage, Time Spiral or indeed Lorwyn.

by ChristPunchr on 2009-05-29 23:24 CET

People that are calling the fourth place deck Red Deck Wins should probably look in archives from the 2000-2001(if I recall extended season). RDW used mana disruption and a few extremely efficient creatures+utility burn, like lava dart and firebolt.
It was basically sligh with a three deuce game plan.

I am surprised no one is using the tomb aggro mana base of tomb, city, wasteland and whatever to make angel stompy or something like that.

Stasis or MUC (Mirrodin+Tempest/Urza+5th) would be pretty classic too.

by Eldariel on 2009-05-29 23:46 CET

Christ: I wrote the article series on this format quite a while ago, and included Dragon Stompy, the only Stompy-deck really buildable in this format.

WW-variants get so much more from non-Onslaught sets that Angel alone isn't worth it (I personally use Kamigawa, because Jitte is Just That Good, and having MD gravehate in Samurai of the Pale Curtain is gold), and a Stompy-build really wants Moxes anyways; no set other than Mirrodin really makes for a credible hull (also, Mirrodin happens to have the Trini/Chalice duo which is pretty integral to the gameplan of the archetype too).

by Spyx on 2009-05-29 23:59 CET

Slippery Boggle ftw

by Bushviper on 2009-05-30 00:10 CET

I is nice to see the best deck in the format win. I played the same and met some unfortunent draws in rd 3, oh well, thats magic. However, Painters Grind is really just unfair in this format. There is not a deck that comes close to being that good. I really dont know why more people dont play it. A 2 card, instant win combo is just to good in such a restrictive format (And I play the deck). Just my 2 cents.

by Eldariel on 2009-05-30 00:45 CET

Meh, it's pretty easy to hate. Red decks with decent amounts of 3-mana burn are almost unwinnable, and anything with SB Needles+Disenchant-effects is hard.

But it's a very robust deck, don't get me wrong; just I've beat it more than I've lost to it and that's been with a wide variety of decks, from Dragon Stompy to Elf Opposition to WW. I'd predict it'll get less popular once people play more SB hate for it (but these tournaments are so few and far between that such metagame changes take eternities).

by dv8r on 2009-05-30 01:01 CET

how does stone ever beat a deck with incinerates

by clayparson on 2009-05-30 01:54 CET

why doesn't second deck play brainstorm?

by MikeL123 on 2009-05-30 02:02 CET

I don't understand why every deck has to be named after some other deck from 5-10 years ago that's only related by color and whether it's a control or aggressive deck. I think the worst offender is Rock. BG decks these days have NOTHING to do with "The Rock", which was named after a 90's WWF wrestler and his on-tv lackeys. The deck was The Rock and His Minions, then shortened to The Rock when it moved from a sort-of fatty based deck to a more Deed-based deck. But seriously... come up with your own name for your deck. It just might stick, and in any case it'll sure as heck be more creative than naming it after something it's only marginally related to.


by CalebD on 2009-05-30 03:38 CET

Mike: because it's convenient. Note that the Fish deck in vintage was originally called "Fish" because it was mostly merfolk. The merfolk were dropped for more efficient critters, but the name stuck, even to the point that a merfolk deck sporting null rods, wastelands, dazes and fows is ironically called "merfolk"-a separate deck from "fish."

by ChristPunchr on 2009-05-30 03:56 CET

Decks like RDW, Sligh, WW, MUC and much to my chagrin: Rock are archetypal examples of specific strategies. If a deck has the same strategy as such, then dubbing it accordingly makes fucking sense.

It was "The Rock and his MILLIONS", by the way. With how many articles there are on the archetype, you think that someone would be able to get it right. Fuck.

Fun fact: Fish actually deviated into a U[W]x that featured a number of cost effective utility creatures in the twilight years of extended before eternal formats were made.

by LordLink on 2009-05-30 04:21 CET

Another MYOS, another deck pulled straight out of legacy.

I agree with Eldariel though, these are so far between that people forget which hate-cards to pack. Especially since Painters Stone and Hypergenesis take entirely different hate cards.

by mrwegle on 2009-05-30 04:57 CET

dv8r: I honestly don't what is good in ravnica? Ravnica has (as for me) only one good card- Confidant and mirodin give me exellent sb card (Flamebreak) and card that can win ANY control match-Jinxed Choker.
Also maybe I waill try build this deck something like ponza : -Seething Song SoFI demigod choker +molten fulmenator +flamebreak but then I need more burn)
Eldariel : I din't play magic when lavamancer was prinet and fetch-lands not is him good without them? And Tsp good because it has Gaea's Blessing :)

by caesarthehun on 2009-05-30 04:59 CET

mmmmm i think i burnt a few jinxed chokers in my day

by Qamiqaze420 on 2009-05-30 05:46 CET

i like caith's deck. intuition + demigods = fun wincon.

by Eldariel on 2009-05-30 07:33 CET

Wegle: Yeah, Lavamancer is good. People die. Burn-spells fall to grave. He'll have fuel, and a helluva good time breaking your opponent's face.

by MikeL123 on 2009-05-30 13:04 CET

AHHH, I hate myself. You're right about the millions. I even watched wrestling back then. ARGH.

I don't read articles on archtypes (well, haven't since 2001 or so). This is - for better or worse - the only site I get magic info from. Occasionally I read Rosewater's stuff on the official Magic site, which is begrudgingly quite good (I hate myself for saying that).

But I disagree about it being the same basic strategy as previous ones. "Attack and burn til they die" is not a strategy. It's just playing red cards.

by DS_McWerp on 2009-05-30 15:58 CET

hence, red deck wins?

by Raves on 2009-05-30 17:46 CET

I wanted to build a Survival of the Fittest/Recurring Nightmare deck possibly even run a Flowstone Hellion kill combo... but I didn't have time to put it together.

by ChristPunchr on 2009-05-31 01:40 CET

Quote from prior post: "...and much to my chagrin:...".

Chagrin means dismay. My idea of what Rock is basically how Mikey P's old deck was. The term is used for anything with black and green, which uses discard and mid-range beats.

I should try to cook up some sort of a demon stompy deck in case I ever catch an myos tourney.
