Quote from Minos Engele »Which one?
Quote from DrWorm »The only hope is that the interacts poorly with too many other decks so it only ends up seeing fringe play. Not too optimistic about that though. Hate always finds a way.

It's cool, we'll switch to a no resto, flickerwisp, or splicer build. And cry a lot.

Quote from Anesthetize34 »Which current decks do you think would feasibly run this, though? Obviously Hatebears likes it, but I doubt control decks could afford hosing Their own Snapcasters.

Known opponent, playing ZombieVine (BG Zombies). The most notable play I make in the games is Vial'ing in a Flickerwisp after he discarded two cards to his Lotleth Troll. Also using Flickerwisp and Restoration Angel on his equipped creatures to stop the attacks.
Unknown opponent, but I quickly realise he's on Living End. This is not a deck I'm comfortable against. Game 1 I made a mistake by Vial'ing in Leonin Arbiter and Ghost Quartering his third land only for him to use Simian Spirit Guide to cascade the win. I had Thalia, Guardian of Thraben in hand and that could possibly have allowed me to win.
Game 2 I turn 2 Scavenging Ooze but he immediately top-decks a Shriekmaw and I have very little I can do after that.
Known opponent from prior scouting - he's on Pod running the Spike Feeder/Archangel of Thune combo. Both games are attrition battles but I struggle for mana while he floods, eventually he's able to cast all his stuff while I'm left with good stuff in my hand only coming down too late to matter. He never sees Pod, I have irrelevant search hate on the board.
New player, bad Rakdos deck, easy wins
Overall I finish 2-2 and with a GPT tomorrow, I'm hoping for better behaviour from my deck.
Question - with access to only 1 Burrenton Forge-Tender, would you run the second Mark of Asylum?
Quote from BobMcFail »So guys a question especially in the BW Build. How good is Leonin Arbiter really, it seems like he has been really underwhelming for me, because the Ghost Quarter does not happen very often and he just seems lack luster to me. Could it be worth to just play more powerful creatures instead of Arbiter and have better mana. The only thing that bothers is that the Pod Matchup seems really though without him.
