This is the first time I have said this about any trial deck, but I like the 1st place list. It resembles the deck that myself, Brandon Scheel and Gabe Stoffa developed and broke standard with. Bant is the nut nut, and not Mythic but actual midrange Bant. It just crushes Jund, and has good matchups all around.

ya Bant is pretty sick :]

Lol yeah Tuffy I built a bant list a little over a month ago and it was very similar to that one. It was doing very well and had very few bad matchups.

I recently got 10th with Bant at the SCG Indy10k. I went 8-1-1 and lost out on tiebreakers. Bant just crushes Jund and going 3-0-1 vs Jund at the 10k and 4-1 vs Jund at the minneapolis minnesota midwest masters kinda proved it. Deck is sick when your 7-1-1 against the top deck in the field. Also I shipped the list to a random guy that was going to play in the florida scg10k. He went 7-2-1 and didnt even play the deck at all before round 1. Whats even more impressing about the deck is that it just has good all around matchups. The only real hard one is UW control and we finally figured out how to beat that now.

I wish I had the cards to build bant IRL.... stuck running jund currently >.>

Tuffy: I like your excitement, but I must tell you. You have not broken the format. The interesting thing, if there is one, about Jund is this. It has enough in it's toolbox that you will beat it until it's aware of you. It's like this; you play against a Jund player that has his MD tooled against another deck, maybe control, maybe RDW, just some other deck that he is worried about. You win. Now, this cannot continue for too long, because he will just start playing the cards that are better against you, cards that are at his disposal without even changing his mana base.

Jund is a toolbox, but Bant is the cruelbox. How many times have I ran RDW against Bant only to watch them stabalize at 1 life, then go up from there.
by fenixmatt on 2010-04-06 17:51 CET
I agree with Jaret... to a point. The great thing about both decks is that they are toolboxes. I have done the same re-tooling with Bant that you are talking about with Jund. Bant is a very good shell to take into your metagame, but if you don't think you need to adjust it for the metagame you are nuts. I have lost just as many games for having the wrong Bant tools in my deck as I have smashed people's faces in because I have the right ones.

I can't disagree more that bant has the format broken. I don't see it being a better matchup against anything but perhaps RDW than jund, and the jund matchup apparently is good. I think if people are playing Naya, you're not going to be able to win a trial if you're battling against multiples. I'm not talking about that 2nd place pile...

Well, I guess the ppl were waiting for my comment.
by Tuffy on 2010-04-06 20:23 CET
If a deck has good matchups all around the board and has game vs UW...isnt that breaking a format? The thing about Jund is that they side into alot more removal....but you can play better midrange than they can.

Also, Bant actually has a good matchup vs Naya. It honestly has no horrible matchups vs well known decks. Here is my most recent list, I am not worried about it getting out since once the Chicago Midwest Masters happens, the top8 will have at least 2-3 copies of it. Since everyone that is good will be playing it, including Iowa pro Brandon Scheel...he is a masta]

I think tuffy has broken the record for most seemly unintentional bragging comments.
by metzel_usa on 2010-04-08 21:31 CET
baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad list tuffy....any decent pilot running jund or naya would walk that list...not to mention UW control...no PtE? ROFLllllllllllllll
