Quote from Gutterstorm »Interesting that Typhons are a kind of creature rather than a specific creature.
Quote from Jiyor »@ haloreaper117- Your uninformed. Standard has only ever had fetches in them three times in M:tG’s history. The only time they caused a problem was when WotC, after saying for years fetches are fine in Standard without fetchable dual lands, included them in a Standard with fetchable duals.
And the shuffling taking up to much streaming time is a hollow excuse because not enough people watch streams of players playing games with real cards because there boring to watch. The heavy stream watchings are from Arena where shuffling time isn’t an issue.

Six-drops seem awfully ambitious, but I have certainly played some games where I've gotten to six mana but many games just don't. I'm interested to hear how this plays out for you. Does the Archon make Witch's Vengeance more appealing for the side-board?
Quote from pzbw7z »The thought has occurred to me that twenty-four lands just might be too many - even if one is a Blast Zone. What are you running? Are you running anything over three-CMC?
Quote from pzbw7z »The deck is tremendously improved. I won all four matches and the tournament.
Quote from Izor »
Green has lost its top 3-4 mana dorks and its top 3 tutors (GSZ, NO, Chord), only leaving Company behind. They also lost Goyf.
Quote from pzbw7z »Sorin has been on the radar. I agree that he should be added; probably as a two-of. A four-drop isn't going to help against mono-R so I'll have to think about other sources of life gain. Curry Favor is a pretty cheap way of doing some damage as well as gaining some life and having a creature to boot.
Quote from mapccu »Who's ready for dork > 3-feri to ruin this out of the gate...
I think while everyone is trying to be cute there are going to be a non-zero amount of people getting curbed by elves players curving dork, into steel leaf champion into Coco all over people. I'm not even sure if shaman of the pack is worth the effort?
Black has some very powerful one drops at it's disposal in a format that is pretty slow. thoughtseize, push, deathrite... I expect black to be a major cornerstone of the format. Also, leyline of the void is probably going to be the best GY removal tool, which means Gary could be showing up to too.
Blue delve spells are going to be redic alongside cards like stitcher's supplier and satyr wayfinder.
White seems pretty weak at first glance.
