Quote from Dromar »With mox diamond you have to discard a land.
Quote from Dromar »This isn't the only deck I play (nor is it the only pox build I run). However I took it to the weekly Legacy tournament this week. I would hate to be a hypocrite maintaining a primer for a deck I don't use.
My first time with the retooled SB.
R1 BUG Delver
I felt the pain of Treasure Cruise. Lost both games and then a 3rd game for fun. I only boarded in the chains and 2 needles. maybe I should think about changing toxic deluge to drown in sorrow so I can board it in here.
G2 I got really close but I had poxed down to 1 land and didn't draw anything useful over a period of turns while his 1 DRS and lands whittled me down.
I just stomped him in 2 games. Surprising since this hasn't been a great MU for me in the past. He played standstill at least twice but he had to trigger it every time since my factories and discarded bloodghasts were putting in work. Factory > Mutavault. One time, the standstill trigger drew me a spinning darkness, which I used immediately to kill the creature he played.
I play swamp and pass. He plays mana confluence and faithless looting, The arch-nemesis! Aw crap I have ZERO graveyard hate in my 75. I scoop up my swamp in response and go to G2. I bring in plagues, bridge, deluge, and rituals. I decide against null rod even though it stops LED.
G2 I land an early bridge with the help of a ritual and successfully empty my hand while the racks whittle away.
G3 Plague on horror and a timely smallpox sacrificing nether spirit to exile multiple bridge from below gets me there eventually... on turn 5 of turns after the round time limit! Early scoop for the win!
G1 I just don't find win-cons soon enough and don't have enough pox spells to keep him off mana. Lucky guy.
G2 was closer but I was a turn too slow. I was having a difficult time playing around Eidolon and getting in damage. Didn't see big pox at all in either game -- it's actually very good against burn.
So it was a strange day of losing good MUs and winning bad MUs.
