Quote from StevomatUWR »@ManDolphin: Nice list! Spell Queller works best in combination with T3feri though. If you somehow can jam 3x Teferi in this list it should work even better.
What I really find interesting in your SB is Sword of Truth and Justice! I never paid a lot of attention to this card but it could really help in one of my worst match-ups with the new CopyCat deck, which is UW Control. And with 8 PWs in my deck proliferate should be really good... I have to test it.
Quote from CurdBros »I would definitely say to go with an additional land. You could just play the deck at 61 cards and simply add another land. With that curve I would definitely want 24 lands. I actually play most of my decks at 61 cards. If you are worried about flooding you could add a copy of fiery islet giving you an additional land and also a draw outlet later in games.
Quote from ccc1522 »@Curdbros how do you like going 61 cards? ive been really thinking about doing it but its "frowned upon" by pros so ive kind of been putting it off. They say it really messes with consistency. But i honestly feel it depends on what that 61st card (which could be any card depending on how you look at it lol).
@mandoplhin congrats!! I was surprised to see no force of negation in your main deck! What was you reasoning behind this? and what decks do you bring it in against? Also after playing with Mu, how do you think she performs? Would you consider here for a competitive event ever?
Also new set is looking F***ING sick. the art is so so good and completely blows my preconceived notion and opinions out of the water. I am so happy to have been proven wrong about this set too. i hope we get something nice in our colors.

Is anyone thinking of trying a jeskai stoneblade style deck? I have a playset of stoneforge so I could give it a try, but I really like my current build so I will likely stick with it instead and see what happens. I am hoping for a meta full of creature based decks with random combo based decks sprinkled in. I have a feeling we will have a very cyclical meta like aggro is hot, then midrange, then control ,then combo and the circle of lie continues. That is really how the meta is supposed to go anyways. I will stop rambling now, but it is a really fun time to be a modern player.
Quote from ccc1522 »EDIT: been hearing alot about D&T becoming really powerful with SFM's unbanning. This would merit running 3 spell snares as E&T runs chalice too. So Abrade and spell snare should be in somewhere in the 75.
Quote from StevomatUWR »Since there is no active Jeskai CopyCat thread I'd like to ask you all for your opinion, but since this is (except for being Jeskai) off topic I'll put my question below in a spoiler. If you're not interested please ignore this post.
A typical CopyCat list plays
0-2 Wall of Omens
0-2 Seasoned Pyromancer
3-4 Snapcaster Mage
4 Felidar Guardian
2-3 Narset, Parter of Veils
4 Saheeli Rai
2-4 Teferi, Time Raveler
I'd like to add one card that can take over the game if it's blinked with Felidar or copied with Saheeli (therefore no legendary).
A 1-of with CMC4 or CMC5 that can win even after the combo get's removed by Surgical. I'll play 1 Seasoned Pyromancer btw.
Here's my candidate:
Cavalier of Gales
Pros: Saheeli Copy let's me attack for 10 in the air and double Brainstorm
Cons: UUU cost, but the deck aims for Narset on T3 so it should be possible late game.
What do you think? Would he make a good 1-of? Is CMC5 too hard with 22 lands and 9-12 redraws?
Also, in my opinion Spellskite should be better than Wall since you already draw enough cards and Spellskite can protect both combo pieces not only by blocking but also by redirecting Bolt, Path and Trophy. Do you agree or disagree?
