Quote from BlackBull »I always wanted to make a sun bleached playset of Krosan Grip (bleaching the disintegration side), but wasn't able to find the cards (neither the climate helps around here). If I get to do it, I'll share (it would be cool if somebody else that's interested on this idea does it and shares too). I bet it would look really cool!
Quote from TehGrease3. Are Noble Heirach and Deathrite Shaman better than good ole fashioned Llanowar Elf? I've noticed that some builds run 8 mana dorks in place of the Utopia Sprawl (more aggressive builds). In those cases, would Hiearch or Deathrites be better than a Llanowar Elf? The deck would have to run 8 fetches for Deathrite to be consistent and the cons may exceed the pros. Thoughts?
Quote from MaliganceAlternatively I was thinking of Nylea, God of the Hunt instead of the Primeval Titan. She kinda functions as our own Kessig Wolf Run, just in creature form (hopefully), that is indestructible....
Quote from AdamMHas Garruk, Caller of Beasts been considered instead/with PeT?
If you have CHB in hand and only 6 mana, you can cast Big Garruk and get CHB out with him. He also helps you refuel creatures since so many are ran.
Quote from minsarkerHmm. I usually only use acetone for foils. If these are regular, will acetone do much? Ill give it a shot!
Quote from Raymond_K_HesselAgainst anyone who doesn't gain significant amounts of life (mostly everyone), we could just run Banefire. Wins right now, can't be countered or prevented.
Quote from WalkIt's 7 devotion for it to be a creature, sure it's not rare to hit 7 but it's easy to change the deck a little to make sure we have less.
Quote from WalkTooth and Nails into Xenagos + Emrakul , Emrakul is a 30/30 Annihilator 6 protect from all color .. Xenagos is not a creature most of the time so it's an Indestructible Enchantment.
Quote from teh_gioHey, so my article this week was about Nykthos Wave that adds an infinite damage combo from Purphoros/2x Burning-Tree Emissary/Cloudstone Curio
Here is the list:

Don't focus too much on all of the individual cards; I point out in the article that new and optimal choices have been found since I put this build together.
I am curious what folks think about the combo potential? Is Curio just too unreliable to leave in?
I think the article is also a nice intro to Nykthos Wave decks and that the 3 tips for playing the deck, especially the Legendary Rule tip, could be something to put in the Primer?
Anyways, descriptions of my cards choices and other info can be found in the article here.
I really like this deck, so I hope everybody can keep working on making the best builds possible!
