Quote from dcovino »Quote from DannDimperio »Dcovino, No manlands? Damnation is one of the best cards in the deck, you should play a couple in side, its a great card against other BGx decks and Zoo, in my local metagame tron still the problem, you dont have problems with your side against tron?
Yea, no manlands for now. Haven't missed them all that much, honestly, but its on the short list of potential things to include. The curve is so low, with only the 2 Thragtusk and 1 Torrent Elemental being over 3 cmc, that I am trying as hard as possible to not have any lands that come in to play tapped as its typically a non-zero tempo loss.
We have almost zero tron in my area, and if it does show up its MonoU and not RG tron. I would bring in some number of Deglamer, Sower of Temptation, Countersquall, Thoughtseize in from the board as it stands for Tron decks. Admittedly though, given Tron's low percentage of the local meta and the horrid matchup to begin with, its one of those matches that I'm willing to just not consider for the sideboard right now. Obviously, at a larger event than FNM I would take it in to account.
Damnation keeps coming in and out of the board for me - will probably add it back in soon. Its a nice generic answer to so much.
Haven't been impressed with Bile Blight yet. Looking more like its going back to Dismember. Perhaps I will add it (or Damnation) to the board instead as an ancillary sweeper effect. Torrent Elemental continues to shine, however, and fulfilling every expectation I had for the card and its role.
Yeah man, today i played with a friend that loves RG Tron, was imposible win without side, i will try torrent elemental but im not sure if its also a good card in the Fabiano´s Sultai (that´s the version im playing)
