*BANNED* - Do not only post "1st / 2nd / 3rd" in a thread.

by Qamiqaze420 on 2009-11-06 05:48 CET

i like ludz' list.

by Malakai97 on 2009-11-06 06:16 CET

I really wish I could ban people for coming onto threads and proclaiming "first."

Wouldn't Leyline be better than trap in a deck that can actually cast it?

by magryn on 2009-11-06 06:47 CET

ravenous trap is instant speed your opponent cant play around it, at least dredge will not not start dredging because they are afraid of a trap etc.

by Mr_DoomZ on 2009-11-06 07:28 CET

Lol I like that the 1st place decks main cards are all extended... thank god top got banned

by Steveman on 2009-11-06 08:22 CET

Force of Will is totally Extended

by Spyx on 2009-11-06 09:15 CET

Yeah the best 8 cards aren't extended (bs, fow).

Trap > Leyline because you can brainstorm/ponder into trap and be fast enough but turn 4 leyline is way too slow. Also you can float trap on top of your library with top/brainstorm and when they therapy you they think they are good to go off and then you win.

Why counterspell over cb in the second deck? Now combo > you. (well ok not belcher but a well played ANT)

by Eldariel on 2009-11-06 09:25 CET

Let's not forget Daze and duals. As for Cspell vs. Cbalance, Cspell is good alone and harder to build against. Also, more reliable and faster.

E.g. Stax is much, much better vs. Counterbalance than Counterspell. Also, having to tap out on your own turn is still kinda bleh. And everyone has Grips anyways.

Not saying Counterbalance is horrible; the winning list contains it after all, but it's not like it's strictly better than Counterspell.

by Ludz on 2009-11-06 09:28 CET

"My" deck is actually Stephen Menendian's, from his latest article.

Like Stephen wrote, the deck isn't a Dark Depths combo deck. Most games I won with Tarmogoyf or even Dark Confidant beats. The threat of Dark Depths is nice though.

Also, I hate playing Top decks over MWS. I don't like doing stuff without permission, which means I go "Ok?" at (almost) every top activation. That makes rounds go to time almost every time, which sucks. I'm happy it's banned in extended! :)

by Lunari_ on 2009-11-06 10:32 CET

Why no Misty Rainforest in Bant?

by Duodax on 2009-11-06 10:42 CET

He didn´t upgrade his deck with ZEN cards... Can happen to everyone.

Dumbest post ever. Brainstorm, Daze, Force of Will, underground sea, tropical island, polluted delta, flooded strand.... all extended cards. Man u are a genious.

And yes , thank god that Top was banned(lol). Now because of it, u have decks like zoo and dark depths that can roll u over before u really enter in the game..... Thats great, isnt it? Geez...

by Spyx on 2009-11-06 12:43 CET

2nd place deck is more like landstill with creatures now.

by Holysword on 2009-11-06 14:05 CET

I placed fourth and I lost to ludz and think the deck I played was just lucky. I had amazing draws and mulligans to reach top 4 and when the smoke cleared ludz countertop deck was better. Props to you Ludz. Game 2 and 3 I didn't know if he had anything other than black creatures so I pulled snuffout from the md. Mistake because he beat me with Goyfs.

by mchosa on 2009-11-06 14:14 CET

moar strip mine pls

by Bushviper on 2009-11-06 14:47 CET

its banned in legacy...

by Mr_DoomZ on 2009-11-06 15:31 CET

Troll combo EPIC

by Eldariel on 2009-11-06 15:56 CET

Shagrath: Do you really think countertop would even be viable at the present Extended landscape? It would most likely be played IN Countertop and its ilk, but given Zoo's speed and curve and the various tools available to combo-decks in Xt, it seems pretty obvious to me that Countertop wouldn't even be very good.

by Ludz on 2009-11-06 16:26 CET

I think CounterTop would be very viable, among others it seems like a great thing versus Punishing Fire combo (on the other hand, stacking 5cc on top to counter Baneslayer seems harder). It wouldn't be the monster everyone makes it out to be though.

Still, I like that top is banned due to the fact that it takes 100 years to play a game with it.

Holysword: Thanks :)

by Spyx on 2009-11-06 17:59 CET

I think top should be banned in legacy as well. Not because countertop is too strong, we do have grips after all, but games just take so much longer when both players have one in play.
And more and more decks start running it.. countertop, landstill, rock, doomsday ant. Heck, it's even a great one off in zoo.
