I am really torn by the two decks I have built for type 2, I posted my other deck on the fourm
Not long ago GWB Shank but since then I have found this deck to be better suited to defeat the meta
It turns Caw go into crispy KFC and it wreaks most aggro decks with early pyros, control flops to a
Nearly Creaturless deck and I rule the mirrorish matches. Basiclly I proliferate the everflow and BBQ my opp with a red sun, if that doesn't work then tezz or "Frosty McBlow Me" surely gets the job done
I have been very consitent with this deck and am worndering if I should make it my main list.
What are my bad match ups as of now?

I dont like it... you are building a deck to beat the meta (which is not only 1 deck "uw caw blade") there are many tier 1 decks at T2 such as boros, valakut, ub control, uw control, etc.

and your deck may kill caw blade like 50%-50% and I think that way because you have 4 proliferate cards which are dead cards at the begining 4 pyroclasm you are not even running tectonic edge... :S

I can continue telling alot of things in here, but lets say just one more, you are playing blue without the best card right now... whenever the great Jace is in play for 2 turns is mostly Game Over for the opponent.

Red zenith isn't good enough right now.

I would play contagion clasp in this deck, along with tumble magnet.

4 tezz is required if you run a tezz deck. The same logic applies to a stoneforge mystic deck, or a bitterblossom deck... or a goblin guide deck.

I think slagstorm is a superior maindeck card to pyroclasm, especially if you plan on burning people out.

Could be some value in combining this type of deck with pyromancer's ascension, although the list would look drastically different.

My suggestion, -4 RSZ, -4 Pyroclasm -1 frost titan for +1 tezz, +2 contagion clasp, +3 tumble magnet, +3 JTMS.

Also, you don't run enough blue sources IMO. I'd play creeping tar pit (obv?) in this deck.

I would cut the Platinum Angel for one Treasure Mage. Also one Mindslaver is not a bad idea.

Remind me the definition of "bad matchup"?
