Mhjames: mtgsalvation: I DON'T SEE HOW THIS CARD IS GOOD. I KNOW PATRICK CHAPIN USED IT AND WENT 8-0, BUT THAT WAS A SMALL TOURNAMENT. THE CARD IS TOO SLOW. YOU NEED TO MAKE SURE THE OPPONENT HAS A SPELL IN THE GRAVEYARD
Quote from kysg »Against the control matchups you would be facing targeted removal. A reasonable call would be Thorn Lieutenant as he leaves a body unless he gets exiled.
Imo, splashing white and going Knight of Autumn does feel like the correct move. My issue is when sideboarding in duress
Do you plan on playing it T1/T2/T3 or T4?
Quote from TBuzzsaw »
Like with any other game with any other deck that plays with Duress, it depends on the scenario. I'll play it if I need to see what's in their hand to make better correct lines of play, to take a crucial boardwipe or Teferi that's coming down soon, etc. I'm not sure why you are questioning Duress of all cards in the sideboard when it's the one card every GB deck is going to have in the side.
Quote from Amnesia_B »I gotta say, I really don't see White being a worthwhile splash. At least not for those cards.
So I have been trying some different things on my Stompy Rock list and ended up with something that has swept the field, though control decks are still an issue.

As I said, the control match is hit or miss. Depending on my curve. Any suggestions for it?
Quote from Zyglrox »Ive been running this list the passed couple days making tweaks here and there. Wildgrowth Walker is pretty insane. I can pretty consistently have him at 4/6 or 5/7 by turn 3 which also leaves me at possibly 30+ life. I have eaten opposing carnage tyrants with this thing. Enter the Unknown has been surprisingly fantastic as well. The extra ramp it provides and being able to supercharge Wildgrowth with a jadelight > enter on t3 feels amazing. Currently with how golgari is setup I feel if you aren't doing some kind of recursion you are doing it wrong. Findbroker has made for the most amazing plays be it getting back a clutch chupa or eldest reborn, or just bringing back a planeswalker. Find//Finality speaks for itself; card is amazing and in this list wildgrowth, jadelight, findbroker and izoni all easily outgrow an survive the board sweep. Lastly, I have been trying Liliana, the Necromancer out the last day or so and this card puts in a ton of work against certain matchups. Don't sleep on the +1 and being able to shock your opponent every turn for free when the board is all mucked up. And the -1 is just great with getting extra value back. This was a 3rd Findbroker but I think moving forward I will keep using Lili. Will update the sideboard later, its pretty basic at this point. What you guys think?

Quote from JaishivaJai »Wow! Thank you so much. I was starting to intuit what you were saying in my gameplay after adding Vraska, Golgari Queen. Deafening Clarion and the other boardwipes have been ruining my day. Often during my games I notice I'm just drawing into a bunch of lands. It's just too punishing to play a deck full of creatures that die to all of the most common boardwipes.
I'm trying to decide if splashing blue for some negate/Chemister's Insight might make this deck worth playing (help me beat control.) Otherwise I'm leaning toward going U/B/g control. It just seems like the counterspells, boardwipes and card draw in the current meta overpower this midrange deck.
What are your opinions? Is U/B control better than this G/B midrange archetype? Or would adding blue/another color or cards make this deck more competitive?
