I've been experimenting with Gifts Storm with Baral and Electromancer and it's both tons of fun and surprisingly robust. I don't know what his list is exactly, but it looked pretty similar to what's brewing here at MTGS.
Because Corey is still early into the tournament and Brisbane had no blue decks in the top?
I was thinking you were talking about what we saw on Coverage yet.
But even then regarding to Izzetmage, there where 4 decks that I would consider 'blue' (Esper Delve, BTL Scapeshift, Jeskai Copycat, Jeskai Midrange) in the top 20 day 1 decks (decks scoring 21 or more).
While you can argue about that and I agree that it would be nice to see blue-based control decks doing a little better that's definitely not 'no blue decks in the top'.
Jesus, they said between all the people on death shadow, they're like 20 something wins and 2 losses.
If this deck continues like this in other tournaments, we're probably looking at another tier 0 deck that could get banned
Super early, shadow could put no players in the top 8, I know.
The deck is extremely powerful when I tested it though
That sure escalated quickly. We went from a strong Day 1 GP performance at a single event to a comment about a potential Tier 0 deck and a resulting banning? That's really too much. I get that Wizards has cast a shadow of ban fear and uncertainty over the format, but we need to push back against it and not get sucked in. It's bad form for every strong deck run to rapidly get painted in ban terms.
