Sakura-Tribe Elder is so bad in that first list, why would you accelerate into t3 Garruk... wait...

I see what you did thar

by GunsAndDope on 2012-04-28 23:48 CET

The UG self-mill deck is really cool.

How were your matchups?

Yeah, a bit ashamed of myself for indulging in this, but you have to realize that you can't evaluate a card based on how it effects your nut draw.

You can't say Sakura is good because it accelerates into t3 Garruk. You have to think about:
A) How good is acceleration in situations without a t3 Garruk
B) How much better are your expensive cards when they come out earlier.
C) How good is the acceleration the turn past t3 Garruk, or whatever other expensive card you play.

The thing is that Garruk, while obviously better on t3 than t4, isn't worth running Sakura for. In fact, you'd be much better just running some sort of removal spell (Smother or something)to help protect your t4 Garruk, or to help ensure that Garruk dominates the board. And that is WHEN YOU HAVE GARRUK. In the situations where you don't have Garruk, you would 100% of the time rather have Smother, given that your only other expensive spells are 2 Death Clouds and a Big Garruk. Smother also answers Twin combo.

But Sakura is better versus Control/Storm/Tron! Sure, but it's still bad against those decks. Whatever tiny advantage Sakura gives you there is not worth playing it over a card that is much better in every other match.

Now, it just so happens that the BG deathcloud deck is pooly designed. It's just not focused in such a way to ensure that Sakura is good. It's trying to be a midrange deck, and then it randomly jams in Sakura. Could you imagine Jund playing Sakura? Now imagine Jund wants to play 2 Profane Command and a Garruk, Primal Hunter. Is it worth playing Sakura then? No, of course not. The likelihood of accelerating into Death Cloud is too unlikely to make that a viable plan.

This was a block daily wasn't it maps?

by maps on 2012-04-29 01:00 CET

Yes but in the modern tournament yesterday, for whatever stupid reason, because obviously these decks are going to be very questionable, I questioned some of the cards in a deck that were obviously bad.

by pg8 on 2012-04-29 02:38 CET

Breaking news: Smother is a good card in Block.

by styx^ on 2012-04-29 05:03 CET

Can we just smother the tribe-elder? uhm... the discussion*... coz this leads to nuffn...

by Tidus- on 2012-04-29 13:27 CET

Fair maps, i agree with what your saying i was just confused

by AkYo on 2012-04-29 22:46 CET

If you are playing Ghostform in UG self mill why don't you just play artful dodge since if you mill it you get the effect as a flashback

by Halldir on 2012-05-03 12:35 CET

Duley... copy for the win? and btw, was garruk so bad as i said?:)
