Quote from wrong_threadinstead of focuing on droping Auntie's Hovel first turn why dont you add 4 bloodhall ooze, inplace of the vein fire.
blood hall, followed by hack blade or leech, followed by hells thunder means 11-12 damge on the board turn three.
Quote from SomadelnochaI don't particularly like this build.... I agree with you about the Borderposts, but not about where to go with them....
Quote from BliIf I'm going to "accel" with borderpost on turn 4, I'd rather play a garruk which gets you at least 1 more mana than a post. Furthermore, fertile ground works wayyyy better with garruk than borderpost. Look at jund ramp...
Finally, I don't think the posts are that great at fixing imo. I'd rather just run filterlands painlands or the like. If you have no budget, I dont see how filterlands are worse than posts. In fact, I'd say they are almost STRICTLY better in every regard. The main point is they don't CIPT! If you seem to keep stressing fast two drop on turn 2. Why dont you just play some BoP or something? Or filterlands will work just as well.
I've yet to see the need for a post in this meta. As a fixer, there are better options in filterlands, painlands, shardlands, BoP, etc. As a ramp mechanism, it's practically unusable compared to mana producers like BoP or even elves, or spells like fertile ground that have great synergy with garruk.
I dont see borderposts going anywhere outside of limited until lorwyn rotates...
Quote from SomadelnochaToo slow, IMO. I played a R/G warrior deck in TSP/LOR/MOR and it had Paragon in there to give Ram-Gang the trample, to make him even bigger when Stonebrow, Krosan Hero got the Battle-Axe. I'm not saying that it isn't a good card, it's just too slow in this deck.
Quote from Toymaker48 Borderposts and 4 Bloodbraid Elves
This is not synergy (unless you like hitting Borderposts with Elves often)
I would suggest you switch Bloodbraid Elves to another card.
Quote from ab33To expand on hamtastic's post. Utility cards are cards that can go in different types of decks and are not really build around me. Maelstrom Pulse is a utility card at rare and so is banefire and noble heirarch, they can go into different decks pretty easy. Jenera can really only go into one or two decks and the mana requirement makes the card build around me if I dont already fit in a deck. Planeswalkers are mythics for flavor and limited reasons.
Quote from Spaghetti MonsterYes, borderposts are pretty good mana fixers. I think some of the lands available are better (vivd lands, reflecting pool, ect) and really only the hackblade benifits from them being multicolor. They are lot cheaper then the land though. You can you use Garruk to untap them to accel into your Dragon with is another draw back. I just think that unless you really need it for the color matter part (hackblade 4 cards in the deck) or because they are artifacts (some kind of esper deck) that there are better fixers/accelerators available in standard right now. After rotation? Who knows?
Quote from darksys92No Bloodhall Ooze?
Quote from BliBorderposts are awfully slow accel. Wouldn't you rather play fertile ground or something? Heck, by turn 4 you could play Garruk!
