Quote from bocephusCost one less then tinker and has legs (I wont even go into the extra cost for tinker)... To me thats better.
Quote from DotMatrixSweet primer.
Something that came to me a while back, and it kinda goes on a gut feeling level so apologies for being not really concrete and bringing evidence to support it, but...
Playset of Misty Rainforests and at least 3 Islands. Every list, those 7+ lands.
As a measure against Blood Moon, I mean.
By which I mean to deaden further Blood Moons after you prevent the first one from resolving. Kinda meaningless to continue Blood Mooning as soon as you see Faeries with three Islands on the battlefield.
It's mental theorycrafting, sure, but I think Blue is that important as to have a bias towards Islands in the landbase, and it's not like Black sources are neglected in the process...
Quote from Hammer-headIt's a CIP triggered. They CAN respond to it, it does nothing though unless you don't have any faeries other than Mistbind (which is why you don't play her with only 1 other faerie into bolt mana to give an example). With more faeries though, the ability doesn't target so them responding does little other than force you to chose another faerie to champion since you don't chose until resolution of said ability.
Quote from Honest_abeWhat happens if my opponent responds to champion by bouncing clique?

Ehrmagersh, a new deck is doing well. Breakz out de banhammerz!
Quote from GodecWhy in the world would you play Dissolve?
Quote from ThatStoryTeller120I would assume that it just exists as another counter that can be very flexible after turn 2. It is a hard counter that lets you fix your draws in a similar manner that condescend does in a deck with no way to play cards that draw cards or alter your draws due to the tight nature of the deck. Not agreeing with it but I am just trying to understand it myself. This is a deck that dances completely to player preferences, so i think its not a bad call, but some of the numbers (4x like condescend and engineered explosives) in Valnarch's list are odd to me...I actually assumed that this list structure stems from an aversion to discard spells in favor of counters, so maybe he is just loading on a full boat of counters that have served him well in his player experience
Quote from ThatStoryTeller120I believe as you have already cast the Mistbind Clique the champion trigger still resolves as effects resolve independent of their source. So the leaves play play trigger happens first before the comes into play trigger, returning nothing...and then whatever you champion will be exiled forever if I am not mistaken. And then the Mistbind Effect resolves I believe
