Quote from Elguur »Hello guys !
I play a similar deck.
A friend is playing mono U extra turns and I can't figure out how to beat him.
Maybe you have an idea ?
Quote from DHamlin »The only issue I have with using the Del Tora and Wescoe lists from the primer is that they're all several years out of date. The most recent Wescoe list was discussed several pages ago and was drastically different from most lists. As poor as it tends to be I unfortunately have to use the recent reported lists from MTGTop8 as a basis for what is and isn't good card choices currently.
Quote from michaelvogler »Personally, I run as many Shrines and BW lands as I can. I don't like 4 or even 3 concealed courtyard because they kept ETB tapped late game when I needed 4 mana. 2 seems good and it synergies better than Isolated Chapel.
On a side note, while we all reference and read articles by the pros, I think it is also important to realize that with the exception of a few, most of the pros focus on standard and (by their own admission) their knowledge of modern and legacy and other formats is more limited. This isn't to say that they don't know anything or shouldn't be listened to, but rather that there are regular contributors to modern forums whose opinions I take rather seriously because I know they grind modern a lot. Several regular contributors here, for example, I may not agree with, but I also listen to their opinions and respect their judgement. I think that they have a lot of good insights and a lot of experiencing grinding BW tokens (certainly more than I do). IMO they are the experts on the archetype, even more so than some of the pros who picked up the deck for a weekend. I mean, I Craig Wescoe and Melissa De Tora, but I don't always agree with them and where they take the deck. I use the ideas I read about in my own brews to see if the deck gets better. I have my own preferences, and sometimes I don't like the tweak or the card interactions and abandon it.
My point is that there are plenty of experts on MTG Salvation. They aren't all pros.
Quote from BaronBS »Anyone have any strong feelings about Sram's Expertise?
3 tokens (w/out flying)+ a free up-to-3cmc spell seems like it deserves consideration, or at least a solid denouncement before dismissing it. Though, hard to imagine ever being happy to get that instead of Sorin.
