gbatista, rad deck. looks interesting and fun to pilot. i may have to copy ur decklist for some testing. how much testing have u done and how are your matchups?

by ChristPunchr on 2012-05-11 02:38 CET

The red deck is the only one that I haven't seen elsewhere.

_ShipItHolla's Titan deck is a nice approach to wub though. I still like to run Scours in my build in the place of a few miser titan targets.

by JeZeus on 2012-05-11 03:13 CET

Its Solar Flare... and its an exact copy of Joshua Cicio 3rd place list from Providence. Minus no Cavern of Souls in the side, I guess. Either way congrats. Ponder is a workhorse.

Solar Flare was a lame deck from rav/tsp standard. Virtually all it did was wrath, research, play signets and reanimate angel of despair:


by Ryk on 2012-05-11 05:24 CET

Nice build Kabelis , very nice job :)

by Counterlife on 2012-05-11 05:49 CET

Oh jeeze. Lets get an archetype thats cool, fgew years later, name another the same name due to some similarities. BTW, if it aint got cards from shards, its NOT ESPER!!!!

Solar Flare was a lame deck from kamigawa/ravnica standard. Virtually all it did was wrath, research, play signets and reanimate angel of despair/6cc dragons. SNORE.

ShipIt was playing a deck that aimed to self-mill and abuse sun titan with miser-ish targets months and months ago. I dunno if he got the idea from someone else though. People can call it whatever they want so long as they don't mind coming across as uninformed.

People are always quick to point out that it's just a name, which is obvious, but I've yet to see the logic in a simple name that suits the deck being less preferable to using the name of a deck from ages ago that wasn't even a particularly good name.

yesm, it's all the Starcitygames.com writer's (Jesse Smith)approach on UB Zombies! It's really great deck when i don't flood or screw. It can 2-0 very easily!

You can see his latest approach in:

Amazing deck i tell you, no doubt will rise to Tier1 imo!

It stills needs some card slots fixed and SB also needs some changes according to metagame!

by Kabelis on 2012-05-11 10:35 CET

You haven't lived if you haven't forked a Koth's -2 fueled Devil's Play for 12 to the face!

by mtgsoldier on 2012-05-11 12:06 CET

Solar flare, mono red control and zombies. And some people still say this formate is not dead

by Strid3r on 2012-05-11 17:08 CET

i think it is a pretty refreshing top4

by mtgsoldier on 2012-05-11 17:41 CET

top3 with unusual but good decks is refreshing. top3 with unusual but bad decks is sad. just sad

by on 2012-05-12 10:54 CET

So strange that there are so many bad decks making the top3 all the time ...
They must be extremely lucky or really good players :)
