#3 I don't know how others do against other control decks, but I hate the match up so much. Its just a grindy counter spell game, and cruel control doesn't have access to things like Lighting Helix and Colonnade, which provide a bit more punch. Two of my friends who went with me played 6 matches each as well and didn't see any control decks... apparently I got all the control matchups.
Quote from BeufordPartridge@ Rogon: Thanks for the mana base tips.. It is rather hard to pick the right lands and the right numbers for it. 90% of the time I hardly had any issues with red sources.. unless someone franticly focussing on hating my red away.
Lands I've changed :
-1 Watery Grave
-1 Temple of Deceit
-1 Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth
+1 Steam Vents
+1 Temple of Epiphany
+1 Sulfur Falls
I hope this will atleast make the 90% being not color screwed go up towards the 99%.
Also I do think that cards such as Illness in the Ranks and Night of Souls' Betrayal are good enough cards to atleast consider 1-2 spots in the side. Anger of the Gods and Damnation are not the best solutions. Burrenton Forge-Tender is a good enough card to hose our hosers in the token MU's and frequently seen in decks that play G/W creatures.
I was wondering... Enchantments can be a big issues for Grixis. We play just those colors that would rather see enchantments be removed from the whole TCG. Blood Moon, Leyline of the Void, Rest in Peace, Choke, Seismic Assault or any enchantment Boggles has to offer comes to mind. Would Kiora's Dismissal be a decent enough card to play in the SB? I always have this 'meh' feeling about putting cards in the SB with the "I might get caught off-guard" idea. It mostly is just a card to use with Teachings, but you might have to go to atleast 2 Mystical Teachings in the MB.
Another thought.. What do we feel about Silence the Believers? To me it feels decent at best. For 4 mana I rather want a boardwipe or something that makes sure a creature will die.. something like Sudden Death. For 7 mana I want it to be a game winning card.
