Quote from Metal_GuN »
Concealed courtyard is good, but dont you think that then there are too much tapped lands?
Quote from LeviatanCL »personal opinion here. I play U tron, D&T (and have played/play several others) and NOT tokens, but i have played a lot against them.
D&T is consistently solid, you can adapt a little to meta (for example swamp blade splicer with finks, lower curve taking out restoration angel, adding more 1cc removal like dismember, oust, condemn, etc) and IF you can overcome its weakness (need a lot synergy, somewhat like affinity), its a great deck. And i think that the eldrazi add more self contained power in card, so the deck is less dependent on synergy right now.
Mono U tron is also a great deck, the only problem i see is that is an awful deck when meta is too fast (infect, burn, boggles, affinity) and suffer from the same hate that affinity/thopter (mainly stony silence). So, again to me, the only problem with this deck is that you will have a real hard time against fast meta (and while chalice of the void helps, i think is better to play another deck before 4 chalice of the deck main), if you are fine with this, go with it.
Tokens is another great and adaptable meta deck, and really shines in "fairs" metagame, where 1x1, aka jund, is everywhere. you can add more discard againt combo, more removal against permanents, more hate with white (best sideboard in modern). My real concern here is budget wise, you really need B turn 1 because of discard, so marsh flat is somewhat a must. also while dark confidant is not a card i think is really needed here (unlike jund for example), Auriok Champion IS a star and playset of bitterblossom is mandatory.
TLDR summarize, the 3 are great deck to commit, but each have its weakness.
Quote from AsrialX »I've been in your situation too. I'm down to just needing 4 Verdant Catacombs so slowly have made progress.
I'm fairly confident that Avacyn's Pilgrim is the best CHEAP alternative to Noble Hierarch. I basically went looking for one mana dorks, and he's the one I singled out.
The reasoning for him over Llanowar Elves is that they both need green on turn 1, which means you'll have green on turn 2. What do you need on turn 2 more than another green source? White! So turn 1 Pilgrim will let you play a turn 2 Pridemage/Voice.
Quote from AsrialX »For the Verdant Catacombs I went with a Bloodstained Mire, Polluted Delta, Wooded Foothills and a Sunpetal Grove. I've played 97 games so far and I've only had it happen once where I wished I had a Verdant Catacombs.
23 lands instead of 24.
I think the debate from what I've seen in this thread is 22 vs 23 and 6 dorks vs 7 or 8. 24 lands doesn't come up too much.
Quote from AsrialX »For Voice of Resurgence you want to go with Qasali Pridemage. If you still have slots available after 4 Pridemage's, then go with Scavenging Ooze.
Quote from LeviatanCL »in my opinion better play a solid tier 2/3 deck before a budget tier 1. So go with Eldrazi and taxes, i play D&T and is legit deck for a while (when pod was around in fact XD).
the most expensive/important card is vial i think, the rest is pretty cheap.
pd: is funny that the splash black version is more cheap than the just W version
