Quote from mooseriderwhat would be some sideboard cards you would recommend for this deck when thinking about the mirror match?
also, how do you guys deal with blood moons?
Quote from i-never-smile...I'm a cold-hearted Islands disciple, so I firmly believe there is a private hell for Red Deck Wins players.
Quote from jturphyMagic is dead, again, for the 2nd(?) time this year? I think this is probably the 43rd or 44th time Magic has died. When will they stop killing Magic?
Quote from LectrysI'm not certain that Spider Umbra is better than Forced Adaptation. Too often, Spider Umbra feels like a +1/+1 counter Aura with irrelevant Totem Armor (Hyena Umbra outclasses it all day because First Strike cuts through early drops like butter).
Quote from Gus_13Has anyone ever run Surgical Extraction in here? I'm thinking about trying it. Seems very relevant to any hate that could come about. Kor Spirit dancer taken out by Path? Surgically Extract that thing.
Quote from PistallionHelp me pls with this deck.
So I play this deck, but i dont have any fetch lands, Horizon Canopies, or Daybreak coronets because of the $$$. What I put in instead is 3 path to exiles, a lifelink, and 2 spirit mantles and trimmed 1 Unflinching courage. I also trimmed the land base down to 18 because without the replacement power of Horizon Canopy, i feel like having 21 lands is too much. I also replace the expensive lands with basics and a 2 sunpetal groves.
what are your thoughts? Do i need 20 lands, or is 18 fine? also, do I need Dryad arbor if i dont have fetch lands? i feel like dryad isnt that great and might be cutting it
Quote from Victor SantSay that when a animated Inkmoth nexus fly over your enchanted creature and hit for lethal with Plating or Pumped by Ravager...
I prever Spider Umbra over Hyena Umbra, since the deck already have 8 first strike source (Ethereal Armor and Coronet), so 1 maximize spider umbra and then fill the rest of the slots with hyena.
Quote from BbearZReplacing lands with more spells and expensive spells at that in a shaky deck that mulligans hard for the right hand? Sign me up?
Quote from HelmWould someone mind explaining why Daybreak Coronet is so essential?
I understand the qualities of the Vigilance and Lifelink in terms of beating aggro, but in a deck that sometimes has consistency issues isn't it a bit greedy to play a WW that can only help a previously-enchanted creature?
The likes of Spirit Mantle lets you nearly ignore aggro and Deathtouch creatures altogether, especially if you Spirit Link your own or one of their creatures. I'm also sometimes having issues against Tron; a Daybreak Coronet is something for my regular G/R opponent to hit with Nature's Claim or Karn.
I am aware that Daybreak Coronet is better, and must admit that budget issues are forcing me to seek alternatives. However, I still don't quite understand why the card is so vital and would appreciate any help with that.
