Quote from Bube »For those wondering about budget manabases, I don't have BC Cliffs either and have been playing with fetches and shocks for quite some time (and without Arid Mesas as well ). It's not ideal, but it works really well (and I get to play the deck ). Here's my list, for anyone wondering.
On a completely unrelated note, what would you all think about a single Goblin Dark-Dwellers in the sideboard? It seems really good for grindy matches, and would be an awesome top deck to flash back something like Kolaghan's Command.
I've noticed a lot more valakut decks popping up and am wracking my brain for how to improve this match up. A recent idea i had was to board in aven mindcensor. It can be really useful in a variety of settings based on previous experience piloting D&T and caps their land drop at 5 (assuming all 5 are mountains/valakut). What do you guys think?
Quote from stonecrowe »I am pro stony silence at the moment, but that's largely due to a higher representation of Lantern and KCI in my local meta recently.
Also worth noting that it really hampers tron and is an easy switch for some of the dead removal in the deck.
