Nice list maybe minus 2 elspeth and add 2 ranger of eos and find room for 2 dragoncaster :) ftw but nice deck good synergy

by Berzerker on 2010-02-06 20:44 CET

Its nice to know that RDW didn't completely become obsolete because of Kor Firewalker.

by Lynolf on 2010-02-06 21:03 CET

Stoneforge Mystic...

Apparently Jund has gained a new enemy. Great job, Comodope. :)

by Der_Unkel on 2010-02-06 21:09 CET

RDW didn't win because of the wwk patch for MWS

Couldn't play semis. MWS wouldn't load.


by Comodope on 2010-02-06 21:23 CET

The deck was pretty nice ( I stole it from Caith ^^) but Elspeth and Stoneforge Mystic arent so great to 4-off them, so i would go -1 elspeth -1 mystic -1 sigil + 2 brave the elements +1 kor skyfisher and im not sure bout the sanctifiers @ SB except for mirror or Runeflare Trap decks they are just shit. Maybe add Harms Way or more Brave to SB.

Jund, Vampire and Bazaar Trader matchups are pretty awesome, mono R and Boros are slightly in your favor, midrange (Naya/BGW/trapa)depends on the number of path to exile and your speed probably about 50/50 and Control Decks get fucked by Luminarch ascension or very fast starts+elspeth.


by Bantos86 on 2010-02-06 21:27 CET

Aw balls! Something that actually makes use of Stoneforge Mystic!

@ishocrone: No. Just no.

by Duodax on 2010-02-06 21:44 CET

why plains and PtE in the red deck?

by cmc on 2010-02-06 21:56 CET

to kill firewalker obv

by ik on 2010-02-06 22:23 CET

To kill Spellbreaker Behemoths that netdeckers play.

by darkwizard42 on 2010-02-07 00:30 CET

To kill you obv

by squeekysheep on 2010-02-07 01:48 CET

btw for RDW next set will have ghost fire "
Only those gifted with the eye of Ugin, the spirit dragon, can see his fiery breath."

by ricklee2705 on 2010-02-07 01:57 CET

no new jace or A.P deck make top 3?

by Y2Sky on 2010-02-07 02:50 CET

The Barely Boros (RDW splash white) deck has been around a while. Just comes in various flavors depending on how much folks splash.

by Eldariel on 2010-02-07 03:36 CET

Jund in Top 3? That's a joke, right?

by JoshJ on 2010-02-07 04:30 CET

Not at all, Jund is still a good deck. In fact, the new metagame is likely more favorable to it thanks to the reduced numbers of RDW and spread'em players.

by OilSlick on 2010-02-07 05:42 CET

Why no Honor The Pure in ww deck?

by Rabrab on 2010-02-07 11:15 CET


by Lynolf on 2010-02-07 11:29 CET

Who the fuck is the player with a bazilion-card sideboard?

by Shinato on 2010-02-07 12:00 CET

Good deck, I've just tested it. Equips are pretty good except Behemoth Sledge which is too often not castable and quite clunky as well. Basilisk Collar is a great one of.

by Shagrath on 2010-02-07 12:08 CET

Actually, junds new enemy is kor firewalker

by Lynolf on 2010-02-07 12:12 CET

by Lat[GRC] on 2010-02-07 14:09 CET

nice metagame report ;)

by Djinn on 2010-02-07 14:51 CET

I also stole the deck from Caith but lost to the only RGW allies.dec (nice draft deck sir!). The deck could be improved but it's actually better than what I thought at the beginning (facing WW mirrors r1 and r2 sucked tho)

by Lynolf on 2010-02-07 14:55 CET

Thanks, Lat! =D

by mrwegle on 2010-02-07 16:38 CET

Djinn what you would change?

by Shinato on 2010-02-07 19:20 CET

Make the winning deck mono white and it will be even better. The manlands suck with only 8 green sources. You can run the new wasteland vs Valakut/Jund/Control or the colorless manland.

by on 2010-02-07 21:09 CET

Awesome WW list, I tried breaking the Mystic and didn't realize that Behemoth Sledge was even an option, good work!

Also, @first poster, only 4 creatures are fetch-able by the Ranger, so it's an unwise choice to add him.

by Shinato on 2010-02-08 08:28 CET

After some testing I'd play -1 Stoneforge Mystic, -1 Elspeth, the Knight Errant, -1 Behemoth Sledge, +1 Kor Skyfisher (He is so good in this deck, I didn't think at first glance he would be), +2 Brave of the Elements --> some decks have bigger creatures and are almost as fast as you, so this one is a nice way to kill them.

by Comodope on 2010-02-08 11:54 CET

by Comodope on 2010-02-06 22:23 CET
so i would go -1 elspeth -1 mystic -1 sigil + 2 brave the elements +1 kor skyfisher

I already told that Shinato ^^, but I dont want to miss the second behemoth sledge, it was always awesome with mystic and in some matchups its so important to play it for 6 mana.

by Karmoth on 2010-02-08 15:01 CET

what do you guys think of playing steppe lynx instead of elite vanguard and add fetchlands?
you can have awsome starts with lynx, with knight of the white orchid you can get some extra pumps and skyfisher also helps to not miss landdrops

Fucking garbage nigger bitches
