Quote from gkourou »Hello guys! first time with the deck at an FNM. Went 4-0 yesterday. I have been playtesting like crazy before going live for the first time. Played against Humans, Spirits, Elves, UR Breach(a-la Twin). 3 first felt like great matchups(especially the elf deck). The last one felt super bad. Fortunately the opponent never drew 5th land never in the game
What do you think are the deck's bad matchups? What do you think about playing vs Tron, Burn, Jund, UWx Control, other various combos(like Amulet Titan, etc)? I feel like those matchups range from bad to super bad, but let's hear it out.
Quote from headminerve »I'm not convinced Alpine Moon is the only way to fight Tron and the like. If we are tempted to run counterspells anyway and have interaction with artifacts, I feel like 2x Ceremonious Rejection could fit very well. That's what I'm currently running.
It leads to sharper plays but also synergizes with the deck, and that's a big plus in my book. Now I'm giving up a weapon VS Amulet and Valakut, but add another VS colorless decks. Certainly a meta call...

The list is still in its infant stages, but it is poweful! It has a horrendous matchup vs the blue version with Thing in the ice, but it is superior to the blue variant speed-wise. It can race agro and combo. It has a lot less CA though, in fact, it has some card disadvantage with the phyrexian spells in there. The noxious revival/mutagenic growth spot is still hotly contended, as they both do amazing things: Revival bringing back milled sideboard cards or hollowed ones, growth allowing your other creatures to trigger flamewakes.
I would love some suggestions on the list <3. Working hard to make it something. I cannot stress enough just how powerful this will be when its been ironed out.
