Quote from shocker_nation »Akalah, thanks for posting the breakdown for us. Always nice to read how others are doing and the touts on the wins and losses.
I went 2-2 at FNM, with the Arclight deck as a loss, and that was the deck that went undefeated. I have done well against that deck online and went 1-2 irl. Beginning on the draw seems to be a bigger negative than against many other decks. Also my opponant was a very skilled player... better than me. I have faith in the BG build and believe that with tight play I can beat any deck. A dash of luck never hurts either.
On to the build... I used 3 Bobs, but think I will play with 4 going in ahead. Kalitas is a favorite of mine, but likely will put two in side with none in main. Keeping 3 trackers in main and use 4 liliana of the veils... on the play she is just money. I miss abrupt decay and will have to find room for one or two in the main. I will tighten things up and hope to report a better record next week.
Since the forum is quiet I decided to ramble on as Led Zeppelin would say...
Quote from FlyingDelver »Double green on turn 2 is more demanding than a turn 3 Liliana in terms of mana sources. You would need 20 green sources to fulfill it. If we take into account that most lists play 16-17 green sources this seems very unreliable. You would need to cut FoR entirely for that probably.

To cast a GG card reliably on turn 2, you need 20 sources of green, on turn 3 it's 18 sources and on turn 4 it's 16. Playing that card is risky, and you are generally better served by Nihil Spellbomb, Surgical Extraction, or Extirpate.
