Quote from Grapefruit21 »where do you guys stand on storm in powered cubes?
What about channel style ramp as opposed to traditional ramp?
With creatures and planeswalkers continually improving do you feel your cubes have gotten more aggressive over the past 3ish years? Is it still necessary to force aggro support by including underwhelming on curve beaters?
How many archetypes do you feel a 360 or 450 can support in a given color? I want to support reanimator, storm, and stax in black and worry that will leave black too thin to also support aggro and midrange.
Quote from Grapefruit21 »Howdy everyone, I've been toying around with a mardu pyromancer/mentor brew because I got tired of playing Green devotion brews. And the deck is interesting and grinds very well (Chandra and outpost siege are late game cards), but can often just run into air (classic pyromancer and mentor without blue problems). The deck is horrible (mine is super untuned and thrown together with what I had lying around M10 duals ftw) but I've fallen in love with Mardu. What appeals to me so much is getting to play the best 1 mana disruption in the format.
Having access to bolt, path and a split of Thoughtsieze and Inquisition is incredible. I also have fallen in love with lingering souls, Kolaghan's Command, Outpost Siege, Sideboarded Blightning's and Murderous Cut. The removal suite is unparalleled and Mentor and Pyromancer can lock up games quick. But as lot's of people in this thread have said they are atrocious topdecks and can lose games when drawn at the wrong times.
So my questions to all of you are what is the best configuration for the tokens build (are anthems needed, how disruption heavy should you go, is Gideon now required, is Sorin worth it, is Bitterblossom too slow, for Young Peezy and mentor lists is a looting effect worth is and which is best, is Bob a requirement)? Is it too much to run 4 of both Young Pyromancer and Monastery Mentor? Is it worth trying to transition to midrange at all if Liliana isn't in the budget? Same question for controlling versions?
Thanks a bunch guys, I won't post my entire list as it's super rough but I'll give the outline below.
