Quote from seeknayr »So against UWx control, how do you know when your supposed to switch roles from burn-your-face aggro, to sandbagging burn until your opponent gives you a certain window?
Quote from Hemmingsen_ »It might appear so on paper, but since you need fetches and shocks in order to control when they are turned on, and you mostly fetch and shock in the beginning of the match, gontis cast after turn 2 are a lot more difficult to turn on, why the first is much better than the second
Quote from elconquistador1985 »I tend to make two posts when I'm responding to multiple people with quotes, since I think it looks inelegant to make one post quoting multiple people on multiple topics with multiple responses. I wasn't aware that this is an issue.
Quote from elconquistador1985 »Against Abzan and Jund, you should just be aggressive with creatures early and then play around their discard while chipping away at them. Eidolon is strong here. Try to hold lands in your hand if possible so that you can discard them to Liliana. If you draw an instant as your only card in hand, hold it until their turn to force them to play a discard spell or activate Liliana. If you draw Spike/Rift Bolt, just play it. Path, Palm, and maybe graveyard hate can help against those. Land destruction via Molten Rain can also be interesting against them, since you could lock them out of a color for a little while.

Quote from Creevy »Overall, I'm extremely happy with how Gonti's is performing for me. I know I boarded it out in two games, and I've learned that it's not good against combo decks. I did topdeck it for the loss against Infect, and that's a very real potentiality. As of right now, I'm accepting that it's a bad topdeck in the way our creatures are bad topdecks. A lot of the speed in which I won had to do with Gonti's, and I'm not just saying that because I'm reporting. A lot of my opening plays were Guide/Swifty, followed by Gonti and then crack a fetch for another burn spell, giving me an energy and pumping Swifty twice. If you're on the fence about this card, I personally recommend it's worth testing.
