    I do belive that the worst drawback of the Kettle that it's activation cost equal tree. So it has no synergy with the main deck forcing us to play with open nana. Moreover, wast amount of our games we play on 2 wich makes the Shrine irrelivant.

    Speaking of little Price Of Progress.


    Anathemancer. If I would a BR Burn player, I'd definetly try this.

    BBE isnt an issue. BBE is the reason why there is so much Jund players nowadays.
    Speaking of BGx, till now JUNK was strictly better. But after crazy bitch esacped the jail, all that JUNK guys reassembles their deck into Jund.

    Hello people.

    As I see myself, and according to 'January 2018 opposing hate analysis' the Collective brutality is the top sideboard burn hate in the current meta.
    Also, due to BBE unban, amount of JUND decks are increasing each day.

    So I made a conclusion, that 3x sideboad Guerrilla Tactics is the solid choice at least for now. It's awesome not only against Liliana and Brutality, but against any drazies who want beat as with a Reality Smasher as well.



    what you think?

    Hello ppl. There is one idea I want to discuss with You: Metagame Driven Deck Development.

    We all read tonns of various Primers where all our options precicely considered and for each card was given a value... in vacuum. That's it. All this precilations about how bad vexing davil is, or how wonderfull searing blaze was given related to some average situation.

    But, do we have such average situations in th day-to-day basis? I bet no. I bet most of your games takes place in a tight community with barely 3 dozens of players, who LITERRALY knows each other from personal cooking tastes to exact sideboard builds, psycology and in game patters of decicion making.

    So, what if we are terribly wrong when we make a decition to play or not to play some card? Let me make a concrete exapmle. Most of my fellow competitive players are quite aware of my deck choice. So they always aware of what kind of play I tend to make at 1st, 2nd, 3r tuns.

    So, when we are speaking about any dedicated player, who met me in battle, all my "perfect card choices" eventually becomes less valuebale. When any UWR mage around knows that You are That Burn Guys, is Your Boros Charm still THE BEST DIRECT DAMAGE? HELL NO, It's just a 1 to 1 exchange with a Spell Snare or a Spell Pierce! Or our All-Star-Eidolon, if he the best guy here? Nope again. It's just a basic RR sorcery speed Shock! In my last 7 daily tournaments that guys never ever managed to survive in a game where he was rellevant. And here a question arises. Shoud I still play with Eidolons while every serious opponent I face will keep a bolt, a snare or a PtE 146% sure? Maybe its better to swapt Eidolons for basic Shocks, as soon as they do exact same damage in the given meta? At least shocks are way faster. Maybe 2nd turn Shrine Of Buring Rage is better that an Eidolon, assuming they can not kill th Shrine with a Bolt from a starting hand?

    Is the RIP still the best grave hate, when everyone knows that You do play exact one + 2 cages? So when they discard it with an Inqusition, they definety have nothing to fear? If if worthy to play Grave HAte at all, If anyone who depends on grave are aware of Your particular choices?

    Ok guys, It's time for the serious question. I'm aiming to optimise my manabase. What i have now:

    19 lands


    What I want: increase lands to 20 and add additional fetchland plus take 3 mountains instead of 2.

    The question is :what land should I pick for a substitute?

    The saddest thing that the junges community consider that kind of play pretty legal. =\

    The answer is given in the exciting (not) primer on Lantern Control here https://www.reddit.com/r/LanternMTG/comments/7z34po/why_idiots_win_matches_or_how_why_to_go_to_time
    What do You think on such kind of strategies? Isn't it too much?

    It seems that the Deck is pretty ok with Jaces and BBEs, at least for now.


    Note that the build with Vexing Devil took 2nd place, while 1st place have no any devils.

    It seems that the Bridge is a big deal here. Which seems a bit counterintuitive. I wonder if that two guys so successfull due to bridges?

    I'd like to see exact 'goldfish' sets. Like {2 lands, 3GG, 2 Bolts }

    Guys, I'm gonna run some Burn starting hands statistics. So I wonder what kind of starting hands we consider as a "goldfish" against an unknown enemy?
