Vampires...with no Nocturnus?

4xEdge/Ruinblaster helps the Jund matchup and also its good against control.

I was one of the Junds that went 3-1. I lost the fourth round to Tuffy due to a mulligan to 4 and then a mulligan to 3. Felt great, man! :D

What happened to all the Pyromancer decks? The Master was full of them; not even one has appeared in this trial. And, at last, Jund is starting to lose power, now that people have found ways to deal with the so-called "deck to beat".

4 Mystic White Weenie (6-0)(2-0)(1-0)(0-1)

Tuffy, how did you SB with your deck? It looks really interesting. I've been thinking of B/r Vamps for a while now.
by on 2010-02-19 04:06 CET
can some tell me how that deck wins..seriously..a break down blow by blow...from someone who plays it
by mrwegle on 2010-02-19 04:13 CET
Caith why the hell you dont play borderpost and steppe lynx? Vs what decks u played.

The sb plan is as follows...
by Tuffy on 2010-02-19 06:05 CET
Also Nocturnus doesnt really belong in the deck since it doesnt run fetches and also runs bolts. It also becomes considerably worse when you side in Ruinblasters/Quakes.

Does anyone think that the Mystic WWg deck could be a viable player in the T2 format? I'm looking for something to play at the 5K in Richmond, and it seems to be pretty solid from my testing on MWS. Anyone have any thoughts as to if it will actually be a good choice to play?
by Nickname7 on 2010-02-19 11:53 CET
Both Caith Stoneforge Mystic decks are good choices, the WWG and the bant
by Lynolf on 2010-02-19 11:55 CET
Tonya: You still doubt it? I mean, go look at past trials and see the results for yourself. This deck beats Jund in the face, so its an excelent meta call at the moment.
by maogonzalez on 2010-02-19 15:43 CET
played the Mystic WWg earlier in our fnm, got a 0-2 drop record... lol...

i dont like mystic decks :/ not really good. ml trials is not the truth of a god :/

Go Go Brainless decks!

Bad news: Control decks in standard are really fucking easy to pilot too. If you have a hard time piloting one, fucking kill yourself. They use the same basic strategy/decision-making principles as aggro except you have more removal. Oh shit. Better get my thinking cap.
by on 2010-02-19 22:51 CET
Mystic seems like a good choice if you are going to a big event. Have a good plan for control, but games versus vamps and jund can be bye depending on your build. You get all the tools to make the most played decks byes though.
by on 2010-02-20 01:35 CET
I'm pretty sure that steppe lynx is a hundred times better than elite vanguard......I mean, the deck does play 24 land, knight of the white orchid, and kor skyfisher...UPGRADE ;D
by on 2010-02-20 05:35 CET
Yeah...I think it having two power is a bit less consistent though. The deck is not intended to be explosive, nor is that its strength. Vanguards do what they are supposed to do all the time and can kill shit during the opponent's turn with a collar. You're completely missing the point of the deck as a metagame foil. No offense intended to anyone, but that kind of lack of understanding is the kind of stuff that I use as evidence for the decline of quality of players that are involved in standard. It isn't all about going for the throat even if a deck happens to have a lot of creatures. Obviously that's a game plan for some matches, but white weenie has a history as a anti-aggro aggro deck. Kind of similar to the way vamps will control the opponent's creatures while playing a mid-range aggro game at the same time except white does it with weenies that have strong defensive abilities...which is a really strong strategy right now amongst meta staples like sligh, jund and vamps.
by Tuffy on 2010-02-20 07:05 CET
The mystic deck is crap........It does not beat control! Im sure it cant even beat the Naya deck that LSV and others are piloting at the PT. The deck is not broken, just really cute.
by on 2010-02-20 18:08 CET
Who the fuck said broken? Nothing has been broken since affinity with disciples in it, dumb ass.
by Tuffy on 2010-02-20 22:49 CET
Nobody called it broken, its just that everyone is praising a horrible deck....It loses vs control and when decks dont have horrible draws. Anyone playing this deck I will laugh at because they are playing a shit deck.....

Heh, you're an idiot.
