by kburts on 2010-01-12 01:11 CET

lol nice good to see trap, but that version is o.OOOOO'sh

by Super_Prep on 2010-01-12 01:13 CET

Wow what a Trial all three decks had interesting tech and choices.

by Lat[GRC] on 2010-01-12 01:13 CET

Shooter did you faced any Jund ? Interesting list but seems to me bad for mirror...

3 Traps in top8 list, I faced Magicrubo with its a trap round 4 and lost 2-0 from shooter r5.

(BTW you magic-league ppl really screwed with deck's name.. As if summoning trap is the only trap of Zendikar... Dark Bant Trap is the name I asked back then now you have established the most lame deck name ever... gj. . . :( )

by Tao on 2010-01-12 01:17 CET

Shooter, you just blew my mind. Are the changes worth keeping?

by gmoney on 2010-01-12 02:24 CET

yes shooter please comment on your deck its a lil unique with chandra and visionary. What was the visionary for? It does seem a tad underpowered when compared in a vacuum to every other card in the deck.

by Ryk on 2010-01-12 02:36 CET

Gj Shooter and LedZep

Go go Brasil

The trap deck doesn't look that different except Sideboard. And the Naya deck looks normal too except for the rf traps. The jund is a lot different, but to me it looks worse. What matchups are visionary and chandra good vs?

by Joby_Turk on 2010-01-12 06:38 CET

2 mana green draw spell chump blocker. card advantage, but it does seem like jund really didn't need it.

by Shooter on 2010-01-12 10:03 CET

by Lat[GRC] on 2010-01-11 17:13 PST

Shooter did you faced any Jund ?

I don't like to cascade into removal (pulse is a necessary evil), so I took out the terminates for another 2-mana spell. Since I still need to deal with baneslayers, I took out the underperforming dragon for chandra, which is awesome vs anything with white.

by jonproject on 2010-01-11 17:17 PST

Shooter, you just blew my mind. Are the changes worth keeping?
Obv. :P

Notice the 'don't like' is a conclusion I got after hundreds of games.

by Djinn on 2010-01-12 12:45 CET

Chandra md? No dragon md? What A mess! where did you take that idea from? U_U

I give you credit for the elvish visionaries tho :D

by bilo on 2010-01-12 16:27 CET

how many uwr/grixis control lists did u face shooter?

by ChristPunchr on 2010-01-12 18:59 CET

Do a barrel roll, Shooter!

by Shooter on 2010-01-12 19:11 CET

truth to be told I got it from Shyft- Djinn

RedXIII: in this trial none, but I run into them frequently on mtgo with pretty good results

I faced 2 'Es una Trappa!' decks in a row tho :P

by mppereira on 2010-01-12 20:01 CET

i lost to shooter cuz i played bad and got screwed in both games.
In justification to my sb, path and deathmark saved me 2 games vs jund, as well as flashfreeze, besides in mirror deathmark kills Iona.
Gratz to shooter outplayed me.

by Scuta04 on 2010-01-14 19:59 CET

i believe you mean outplayed... or pwned
