Key notes on my deck:

- I never really drew Phyrexian Metamorph. There's probably a better card.
- There is just not enough Fae hate in the LRW-WWK-NPH. Corrosive Gale was the best I could come up as a sweeper for Fae, but I think I may have overlooked some cards. I would probably increase Wispmare count.
- Dismember was awesome.
- next time, -1 Plains +1 Island.

nice list silverbullet :) gz

Lost semis to straca on two super manaheavy draws. Sigh. Even 50/50 on spells/lands would've given me a chance but it was not to happen. GGs.

Am i missing something with Zuran Spellcaster?

by GreenBear on 2011-07-03 15:30 CET

Its called basilisk collar and I imagine anticipation of a lot of fae.

by Eldariel on 2011-07-03 21:58 CET

The complete combo wrecks a vast number of decks in the Beats-category in a deck that otherwise has trouble efficiently killing large numbers of creatures, and without Collar, Zuran presents a measure of control over a variety of tribal decks (Faeries, Merfolk, Goblins, Elves) and White Weenie-variants and such.

It's also pretty damn solid in the mirror; the mirror is actually pretty low on removal for creatures G1 and an active Zuran Collar destroys any non-Jace threats (and leaves a Jace at 1 Loyalty if used to answer Zuran).

And yeah, it's an absolute godsent against Faeries...or would be if I ever drew it (the Semis-loss involved the two most epic non-games I've played in a while - G1 the only non-land permanent I drew was Elesh Norn and G2 I mulled, got Seized for Jace and never drew a creature or another Jace or Disenchant). Basically, the deck needed few more creatures and the options were:
- Order of the White Shield (MD trump to Bitterblossom, decent but color- and mana intensive creature)
- Kor Firewalker (Bear except in the dedicated MUs)
- Admonition Angel (yeah, 6 mana, moving on...)
- Blade Splicer (pretty good, but doesn't really answer any problems that need answering)

I went with Zuran especially for the ability to trump Faeries pretty hard if it sticks and to address the fact that you don't have Day of Judgment, Umezawa's Jitte or such - you function on 1-for-1 removal and trumps.

Zuran did also kill a Kozilek this tournament and the combo is quite solid against Hypergenesis too (between StP & Dismember, they rarely win immediately even if Hypergenesis resolves - I won G3 in 4th round against a resolved turn 2 HG for Sphinx/Sphinx/Hellkite, though with Elesh Norn + Jace + Dismember rather than Zuran Collar). Oh, and Zuran still carries Sword of War and Peace fine; got there against Hypergenesis G1.
