Quote from Goupil »Im sorry to ask this, it's maybe not the good place, Im currently buying card to play human, i try a lot of deck online and this is the one i realy like. But i have no idea of which list i should "pourchase". There is many different version, mana base(some play 6 canopy what i understand to recycle and other don't
,side are so different. What is a basic side ? Because i know nothing about my local meta. (i start magic again after a 4 years break so...)
Thank's a lot if i can get and answer !
Quote from Goupil »Thank's ! I was also looking this topic and MTG top8. But i don't understand why mana base are always different even if they play the same things in main deck ah ah
Quote from HappyMTG »Hi more experience Human players. Now from what Ive been seeing with Humans it can be anywhere from a somewhat fast aggro to a mid range deck. I have a question about playing a more ramped up hyper type along the lines of Red Haste type speed stuff.
Can a card like Tajic, Legion's Edge fit into a Humans deck to help go fast to race when needed and still be strong enough in the mid range game?
I get there are so many good 2 and 3 man cards it will be hard to cut and add things.
Quote from headminerve »Your main deck relies on having Vial or mana sources a bit more in the MUs where you want to land Big Thalia. Just be aware of this when you look at your opening hand. I don't think she's better than Crusader or Mantis VS Hogaak though.
Big Thalia is good vs Tron, but often gets bounced by Titi or bolted before Phoenixes come back, so her power is very relative. It's a gamble that may pay off in your favour !
Your SB is very diverse, and this is usually something you do either because you don't know the power of the cards and you want to test, or because you know exactly what you're doing after analysing the expected meta. If I were you I would narrow down a little. I'd probably play 2 Crusaders and cut Icon of Ancestry. This card is a 3-cmc noncreature spell. In my book it's a big no (only 19 sources to cast it). The max I wanna pay is 2 mana for a noncreature spell. Now you have a reason to play this card. Will it be stronger than a proactive Crusader ? Idk !
Spyglass is suspicious too. It's a card that prevents from losing, but doesn't help you win. You already have a million cards vs Urza, and I bet a 2nd Cage over the 2nd Crypt would help more VS Copycat and Vizier if you really expect them. The more reactive cards you play, the longer the games will last, and that's how some combo decks take over Humans usually. Don't give those decks time, aim for the godlfish aggro start.
These are just general suggestions, I may be a bit off about the power of certain fancy cards I haven't tested myself.
My SB is very diverse because in most matchups we don’t want to SB too heavily to maintain the core of the deck, and thus I felt compelled to pinpoint very specialized cards to help in difficult matchups.
About the Burn matchup... please correct me if I’m wrong, but Meddling Mage and Freebooter should be used to aggressively block Burn’s attackers
Kambal isn’t as good as I though he could have been. Rather than punishing Control (a role Burn takes against Humans) with Kambal, we’re probably better fighting attrition with card advantage (thanks to Militia Bugler).
Mulliganing aggressively to Auriok Champion is probably the way to go.
Should we start thinking about Tajic as a main deck solution in our few flex spots?
Other than that, I can see that we’ll probably have to swap Freebooters for Unsettled Mariners, except that this gives more room for Combo to thrive.
