That BWu control deck sure does look good! I imagine the deck builder is extremely handsome and well spoken.

by archmage521 on 2011-02-01 23:15 CET

no shape anew deck?

by Wyr on 2011-02-01 23:20 CET

4 Arrest maindeck and shape anew deck autoscoops in block.

by ovmlcabrera on 2011-02-01 23:53 CET

only arrest? Revoke , Tumble Magnet counter shape....

by foshm on 2011-02-02 00:06 CET

bounce does it to! even better than countering the shape. Steel Sabotage your 11/11. Good luck casting that one buddy!

two things, I am pumped Tfalcon25 got second though first would have been bettered and second I am glad infect is finally making an appearance in block.
Great Job!

by P_P4E on 2011-02-02 03:09 CET

they totally kicked green out from under infect. The green cards are unplayable in constructed. It sucks, kind of.

Someone needs to build a no-creature deck. Every single one of these top decks has like 12+ removal. Just blank them =P

Metagame breakdown, by DARKING


by foshm on 2011-02-02 06:03 CET

I had 8 main deck removal spells. That was all. As far as a creature-less deck is concerned, your win condition then would basically have to be artifacts, in which case people have hate for you anyway, either main or in the board.

by darkwizard42 on 2011-02-02 06:14 CET

loving that poison deck

also WBU is sweeeet. Tezz and Vesner so good

by GDP on 2011-02-02 16:26 CET

The third deck has no reason to be playing Venser. With the cards in your deck he is at best a 5 mana phyrexian arena- sure you can do things like blink your sphere of the suns, but is that really worth 5 mana, let alone a slot in your deck?
Other than that and the lack of Sunblast Angel, it looks good- Ichor Wellsprings are nice with Tezz and I can't wait to see them used proficiently with Ring of Geth.

by ykpon on 2011-02-02 17:54 CET

Venser's ultimate is a good reason to run it in any deck able to protect him. Especially if it's also a 5 mana arena.

by foshm on 2011-02-04 07:31 CET

ykpon has it exactly right. He also protects your life total pretty well as they are forced to swing at him instead of you.

He also makes your sphere recharge, he also makes a Tezz jump back up to 3 counters after you cast it and go with -1. He does a lot of small things instead of one big thing.

AND he gives your Ragers and Engines vigilance.

GO GO GO MagicEd i so like mnon black so glade to see some one is wining with it how did you get pass thos counter spells

the only thing i would do be sides adding black sun Zenith in the board

i would cut one Signal Pest for a Sword of Feast and Famine MD but beside that it looks fine to me

anyway great to see you wining with mbc keep on doing it..bye
