Quote from StreexGeist »Tested Timely reinforcements online today against an aggro deck, and i can say it's incredibly powerful. Can't wait to cast it against burn as it can act as a 2x1 or even a 3x1 if we have less creatures than them. I'm impressed

Wouldn't Sphinx's Revelation be a better fit? Slower, sure, but scalable, unconditional, instant speed, and draws you spirits.
Quote from TheoryCraft »Hey all, been looking at some of the sideboards recently from some of the successfully performing lists. While cards like Rest in Peace and Stony Silence are obvious inclusions and require no explanation, I noticed that quite a few lists run copies of Mirran Crusader, and none run Damping Sphere. Can someone explain why Crusader is run in a deck with heavy creature density and inherent protection via hexproof? Also, why no Sphere? It seems like a very powerful card to bring in versus a variety of matchups - Tron, Eldrazi, and Storm (not sure if I am missing anything else in terms of auto-includes). Thoughts?
Quote from StreexGeist »I guess the reason why Bant struggles against Humans is cause it's not running Nebelgast Herald, which is the best piece i have in UW against them, and the one they name first with meddling mage once they have suffered its triggers
Quote from Jonny_Tempel »Yeah Humans is a tough MU for us. As for sideboard cards, Settle the Wreckage and Worship are very strong options. You should bring in additional removal too if you have it in your board (Blessed Alliance for example)
Quote from StreexGeist »
What's the point in being scared of losing your creatures to a potential staticaster when you get to kill them by yourself casting a wrath? Again, i run an UW list, so different stuff, but I've got 2x Favorable winds, 4x lords and 2x Kira, which deal with staticaster pretty efficiently. I guess you could dig your deck with coco in search for a lord and play Kira in your side.
If i was to play a wrath effect, i'd go for settle the wreckage anyways.
Quote from ketoglutarate »i don't know, our suntail hawk is the best spirit in racing situation, it contributes to possibly 80%-90% of our turn 4-5 wins. I wouldn't even consider taking out what's been deemed as "the best creature in the deck", if not for curve purposes (we need a 1-mana creature).
Tallowisp solves our mana curve issues and is good in defensive terms. building a list with him is rough, though. The first thing you'll notice is that Pacifism will probably substitute Path to Exile
