    Kess being in Horizons really makes me want to switch back to this deck again.

    protection from 2 of colours with a lot of removal and being able to kill planeswalkers upon connecting to the player? seems good to me

    how aggressively do other players use temur battle rage? If you can battle rage over a blocker for the win vs probably kill the next turn, do you still go for it?

    went into an MCQ yesterday feeling less than confident with the deck and took it to 4-3

    round 1 got paired against someone at their first competitive events, he was on some big redish style deck. Deck wasn't good and neither was he really. Game 1 he played poorly and I won off a Liliana, Dreadhorde general after digging deep to draw her when he was dead a while ago, he just didn't realize when to scoop. Game 2 Lyra dawnbringer got me there.

    1-0

    Round 2 I lose a tight match to mono red 1-2. Game 1 he steamrolled me. Game 2 I kept a hand of 4 lands, duress, thought erasure and baby tef, everything else just fell into place and he scooped to big tef emblem. Game 3 I stripped the tibalt from his hand early due to the no life gain ability. I was getting close to stabilizing but then he got a second tibalt right before I dropped my Lyra and couldn't get there in time.

    1-1

    round 3 I lost to bant midrange pretty quickly, mostly due to me not knowing how to play it. Played right into his stuff 1 then just couldn't make my way through how to win in game 2.

    1-2. probably needed to win out from here

    Round 4 I beat UW mill 2-1. He milled me out game 1, I got my Liliana milled out early and didn't really have a way to win that game from there. post board I took on the role of the aggro deck with 3x dreadhorde invasion, 2x Lyra. I swapped the removal for those and more permission. Highlight of post board was drawing out a negate on my turn 2 of game 3 (he was on the play) with a thought erasure, then slamming dreadhorde invasion when he tapped out on his 3.

    2-2, looking better.

    Lost to gruul warriors 0-2. He curved out really well g1, then I mulled low g2 and got run over

    2-3, dead to top 8 and need to get lucky to prize.

    round 6 got the no show to go 3-3. Probably not gonna prize after that kind of win

    round 7 I win a nail biter against grixis control/midrange 2-1. g1 he basically drew only his copies of nicol bolas, dragon god and nicol bolas, the ravager. I couldn't answer them all. game 2 I duress away his discard spell in hand and jammed dreadhorde invasion on 2, then I ran away with the game. g3 I was stuck on 2 or 3 lands for the longest time after a mull to 5. He got a nicol bolas dragon god and a liliana which he ticked up twice. I drew an elderspell to kill both. I then essentially sacrifice my first baby tef to bounce a token, then bounce the second token with my second baby tef. I was then able to get enough lands to cast my liliana, get it up to 9 and also have a dreadhorde invasion. He was the able to kill my lily and big tef with bedevils. He then casts a Nicol bolas, the ravager and flips it right away. he minuses it to get his other bolas and kill my last walker, which i believe was the baby tef. I finish his walkers off with zombies, holding a vraska's contempt for whatever creature or walker he had. It was over from there.

    4-3, finished 44th out of 120ish, prizing was to top 32. there were a lot of 12 pointers in prizing but I was the second from the bottom of 12 pointers.

    I know I didn't play perfectly but I think the mistakes I made were mostly minor

    I went to an MCQ yesterday. Pretty much every round there was some 4 colour command the dreadhorde mirror that went to time because the state was such a mess and they gained so much life. My buddy went 3-1-3 with the deck and all 3 his draws were mirrors (one of those mirrors went an extra 40 minutes after time, with no extensions)

    This card could be one that I underestimate but it seems pretty bad to me. Seems like you'll be casting it more than pitching to it

    this seems really silly to me. could make hollow one and dredge stronger but at least they'd have to change mana bases
