Quote from lordlukas »In which matches does Baneslayer shine?
Quote from Bearscape »If you haven't tried Baneslayer/Lyra in the side yet you definitely should - they have been completely absurd to me in so many matchups
Whoever came up with that innovation deserves a medal
Quote from CurdBros »I think Boros Charm is super underrated right now and totally agree with you. The indestructible option is often over looked, but can cause the largest blowouts. I can't tell you how many games I have won with a Boros Charm for 4 damage when a bolt wouldn't have done. Very cool deck. I will definitely be trying something similar.
Quote from RafiqEDH »Hey all! I took a break from control for a bit and am coming back now, but i need some help deciding what to build. I currently do not have Teferi and probably will not acquire him relatively quickly (hard to find here) so this leaves me with 2 different decks to play / build in the mean time.
Jeskai Nahiri - Could run this with 4 Nahiri or a 3/2 split of Nahiri / Jace. Also a debate of 4 remand or 2/2 remand/mana leak? I enjoy the Nahiri style and have played it before.
Jeskai Control - This would be the stock build everyone is on now except i would have to replace 2x Teferi with 2x Jace.. I am aware that Teferi is technically better and this is where the decision comes in because i am not sure the deck is worth running as it is with 2x Jace or if i should just play the Nahiri package until i acquire the Teferi.
Let me know your thoughts and opinions please
Quote from zcowan »Hey everyone! I'm off to a semi-big tournament this weekend and I was wondering if you could offer some advice on the Mardu Pyromancer matchup? I come from playing Taking Turns a lot lately but wanted to come back to Jeskai for the tournament..
I find the redundancy of their deck difficult to beat. Any suggestions?
Im running the normal Teferi list with the only change being -1 Search for Azcanta and + Spell Snare as it hits a lot of important cards currently in the format..
and my sideboard is average as well - disdainful stroke, dispels, runed halo, detention sphere, etc...
Sidenote: most of my opinions on the matchup come from taking turns and not piloting jeskai against it so it may be more favorable then I am thinking but I want to be prepared for this weekend since there will probably be a lot of it there!
Quote from DragonTrainerJohn »Hello everyone,
Recently, I am struggling to put up good results with Jeskai. The past 3 events I won only 1 match out of the past 11 that I played. I played almost all of our good (Affinity, Company, Elves and bad (Tron and Ponza) matchups and I am still struggling. Can anyone give me advice as to how to break out of my slump, and if anyone has experienced a slump with the deck? Any feedback is great.
Quote from tronix »yeah jeskai still lookin strong. not surprising to see two of the better control players on the scg tour do well with it. rosum fell victim to the jund hype for a while, but i cant fault him for that.
not sure what matchups davis had in mind with his tuning changes. my best guess is the mirror and tron.
Quote from Magix »Talking about advice for specific MUs, how do you approach the Mardu MU right now? Their combination of Discard, Blood Moon, Souls and Reveler is really annoying. I think I have to be the aggressor and burn them out before they get their reveler chains going but I am curious what your plans are.
