Mammonth when you come back?

Really, my deck sucks, do not play it :)

by Emperok on 2010-01-19 13:33 CET

Ur deck is not suck. It is great answer for meta to play sculler. U did top2 second time. Not bad:)

I am looking at list of decks and really wondered about it. Especially, why did nobody play Eldrazi green? I don'think that it is sheety deck.

And I am really want to hear some advises for improving my sb. Matchup with red is terrible and 4 nighthawk is not enough

by magicalmatt on 2010-01-19 13:54 CET

esper control = solar flare

by Krastino on 2010-01-19 17:29 CET

If u want to improve ur MUs against fast decks just add cheap removal (add 2 or 3 Burst Lightining)

by Eldariel on 2010-01-19 17:34 CET

Wow, Solar Flare finishing somewhere? Cool.

Against mono red you really need the Terminates out of the board I don't know if you found any of your sideboard cards less the amazing but I have found in several matchups that I really like maxing out on Terminates. Also Broodmate Dragon is prety back breaking as it can eat a Ball Lightning and swing back for four. Your version seems farely weak to earthquake but hey you won the trial I just wanted to let you have my 2cents.

by Shooter on 2010-01-19 22:44 CET

6 mana cards aren't good vs monored.

In jund, you want 8 bolts vs monored def.

by rafaruggi on 2010-01-20 03:10 CET

D: Seriously, it may be a meta call, but I simply HATE flashfreeze maindeck. The idea of having 4 completely useless cards depending on the matchup is just, ugh, terrible. I'd replace them with DoJ. Only Earthquake as a mass removal doesn't seem enough.

I need to finish my diploma work, will see all you at February, here or in MODO

ok, I need to clear this up for everyone who thinks that the Wb deck is an original list. It's not, William Cavaglieri made that deck, and posted it on Starcitygames, the list you see above is a carbon-copy, with absolutely no changes whatsoever. Please thank Cavaglieri for this deck, as he is solely responsible for it's creation. Cavaglieri was in the top 8 of worlds for those who don't know. And this means no disrespect to Krastino, who obviosly piloted the deck quite well... It is quite strange though, that both Krastino and Cavaglieri are from Italy... wait a second...
Krastino siete amici con William Cavaglieri? perché ti ho visto dire che è stata la prima volta
hai giocato "Willy" ponte...
