Magic Tech Financial Speculating Edition

Post your success stories of swindling Painter's Servant, Angel's Grace, Worship and Simian Spirit Guide from unknowing vendors.

Secret tech is haram and punishable by gouging of the eye
>>
Worship will go back down once everyone realize how shit it is.
>>
>>45318006
am I the only one who is getting fairly sick with these intense spikes and general over-speculation in all parts of the MtG community?

I really wish the super secret mtgfinance cabal could give it a rest or WotC could somehow make it easier to play non-online Magic
>>
>>45318035
it was probably just one guy speculating and hoping to drive a craze

it might have even worked out for him depending on how savvy he was
>>
>>45318006
>Simian Spirit Guide
They're 10$+ now?

wtf happened? I picked up some years ago for a silly pauper madness deck.

Should I be selling these things off then, asap?

I haven't played in years.
>>
>>45318096
They were 22 yesterday

>>45318123
ALWAYS sell into the hype
Don't be a retard like me and buy cards in the beginning of the spike and expect them to spike even harder. I bought 5 Worship at 5 dollars each and I'm pretty sure they're gonna drop right back down to bulk.

4x Angel's Grace I bought for 4 each, 8xSSG for 5, 4xPainter's Servant for 10 dollars each
These seem like decent prices for all of them, but you forget you'll probably only sell the cards for half of the "real" price, so I've already lost a buncha money on SSG

Sell, sell, sell!
>>
>>45318073
Yeah I have no idea who drives the prices so hard
It's not casuals because they have no idea about anything
Most speculators I've seen are reactive and just buy into the hype early, then sell when hype is at its height, but who hypes it enough to affect prices in this way? Is supply really so limited that it's just grinders who wanna try a new deck?
>>
>>45318123
yeah I'd sell

way moderns going they could end up banned anyways

I like that turbofog worship garbage stuff looks like it's got game against Eldrazi (30/70 at best in favor of Eldrazi), because this means Wizards might not emergency ban it

I think if it lasts a month, Ugin spikes to infinity, then crashes in April after banlist update
If it doesn't get banned in April though...

>>45318172
I like having both my kidneys even more, so until China gets its shit together and starts making some better counterfeits, I'm stuck with playing better games than non-Eternal Magic

At this point it almost looks to me as if Bant Turbofog might turn into the new Splinter Twin; the police that holds aggro down so that other archetypes can flourish.

>>45318285
All the Eldrazi deck has is combat damage. A few timely Fog effects can hold them at bay to Verdict their dreams away.
>>
>>45318325
and hand disruption

and counterspells

and chalice
>>
>>45318265
>not playing postcontrol
>>
>>45318325
Except when they just use chalice of the void and you cant fog anymore.
>>
>>45318325
See the problem in my mind here is that you have to build the deck around 4 things

Having the Fogs to stall
Having the Wraths to stabilize
Having the actual CA, not virtual CA, to keep doing those things
Having a resilient wincon that isn't a nonbo with your main gameplan (so probably no creature-based wincons)

Because of Modern's lack of filtering and CA in general, it feels like you'll just end up with the wrong half of your deck at any given point in time, but I could of course be wrong and the deck is redundant enough and resilient enough against whatever the Eldrazi do to stop you, that you don't just instalose once they start packing more interaction.

Has it had any results or is this purely at the theorycrafting stage?
>>
>>45318346
>>45318332
There are extremes you can go to.
>>
>>45318353
What would you even exile in a turbofog deck against Chalice on 1? Logic Knot?

>>
>>45318265
This got 4th in the first recorded no ban list tourney http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/03-08-15-ub-tezzeret-control/
Some questions, Why play chalice as anything but a 4 of? Why play mental mistep with chalice assuming you're going to cast it on 1?
Cranial plating, arcbound ravager, broodstar and etched champion are not generally includes for a control deck. Wurmcoil seems like sb material, 6 mana is likely too high for delver and unimportant vs control decks, seems only good against midrange.
Have you done any testing at all?
>>
>>45318395
No, I havent. Literally slapped this together while eating breakfast and figured Id get help from you guys before wasting my time since Im not the greatest deckbuilder.

Thanks for the link.
>>
>>45318365
this is the problem with modern, you can try to answer a ridiculously varied field of threats with answers, or you can "answer" them by killing them as fast as possible
>>
>>45318262
4 is usually enough to kill the relevant threats, and 4 damage to the face closes games.

Because Eldrazi will still fuck shit up without it and it's a decent sideboard option in other decks to deal with shit stuff that they can't keep up with.
>>
>>45318765
Because you can't turn 1 it without SSG or the other guide and Wizards doesn't want you casting 1 drops after turn 1.

I played about three hours worth of games with/against colorless and red/blue Eldrazi. For junk it's near unwinnable if they have a decent hand. For aggro strategies it's possible but you have to be on the play or you lose.
Turn one reality smasher is disgusting btw.
>>
>>45318778

I'm not even the guy you were talking to /v/ermin, but no one likes your kind here.
>>
>>45318793
Colorless is the faster Eldrazi deck, right?

I think that its capable of beating U/R eldrazi after seeing how that deck flows, but you can't beat bad mulligans.

Yeah. It just feels like a better deck imo, but UR is favored against it.

>>45318969
Yea, but my Burn deck won't.

Gonna have to sell it and buy a new deck now.
>>
>>45318006
I'm tempted to build a burn deck that wins on turn 4 with Hidetsugu's second right, using grove of the burn willow to help boost them back up in life if it drops below 10. Not consistent at all, just basing it off a cool play I saw this weekend.
>>
So, with Madness returning in SOI, do you think it'll be possible do build a decent deck around it? Some obvious enablers are LotV and Baby Jace, Lotleth Troll works too if there are good creatures.

Hey guys I'm playing a fairly stock Abzan Midrange list right now. I have pretty decent game against most aggro strategies at my local store because of kitchen finks and feed te clan but I just fold to the couple of Tron and Eldrazi players. I've come to the decision I need 2 or 3 more hard removal spells in the deck, but having a hard time finding good ones. Is it safe to play Doom Blade or Slaughter Pact right now? Doesn't seem like a lot of black creatures in the meta currently.
>>
>>45319505
>Adapt to Chalice

If it drops Turn 1, then its a Game 1 auto-loss, unless you plan to run Revelrys Mainboard.

I'd give a meme/meme. Good job on spending over $40 on a joke.
>>
>>45319562
Oh and keep in mind that you need to board out most if not all of your creatures Game 2.

I'm planning to add a third Deflecting Palm in mi SB but the burn deck can only go so fast whereas Eldrazi can win as soon as Turn 2 or Turn 3 consistently.
>>
>>45319562
if eldrazi decks popped up locally and I knew they were the biggest problem I'd have to deal with yeah I'd probably start main boarding some hate.

I actually had smash to smithereens main for about a month because there were 8 affinity players at the shop, where the average turn out is less than 20 people.
>>
I had the list before the Pro Tour from online testing and bought all the cards. Just flipped them for 650+, not bad. Wish I had bought more mimics at 1.25, but what can you do.

If you had an inside track on PT testing, I think you could really speculate and make a lot of money. At PT Caw Blade the team bought almost all the Stoneforge Mystics that were online and casually made 2000$+, which is nice.
>>
>>45319623
Yea, I guess that its based on your local meta

I've only heard of one person who picked up B/W Eldrazi, but I'll see how the Eldrazi turnout is this week.

All WotC needs to do is print a void winnower esque card that just hits things 5 or more. Make it a red card that burns them for 3 every time they cast a 5+ spell.

They will just ban eye and print a new better version in the Emerakuel set.

Remember a year ago when they said they didn't want to police modern in their card design and people thought delve and prowess was the worst that could happen?
>>
>>45320169
>delve and prowess was the worst that could happen

I don't remember anyone saying that. Especially not about prowess.
>>
>>45320270
I just threw it in there because swiftspear is a better 1 drop than delver and has displaced the entire deck setup as a response.

Everyone was aware of dig and cruise being banworthy, just no one wanted to ban them because they like recalling. having cruise and dig in the same set alone was suspect.

As a ex-pod player, let them ban everything. fuck wizards. I will be eternally salty.

>>45319151
But anon, you're forgetting the best madness enabler ever..... Tibalt.

>As an ex-player of MTG that used an unbalanced as fuck card with no consecuences or reprisal.I will be eternally salty that the format is better without said card.

Fixed. The game is better without cancer like you. The same goes for the Twin apologist, get fucked, your cancerous deck deserved to die, you're next Affinity, Tron, Infect and Zoo, all will die and we will finally return to 10+ turns Master Race formats.

why are people actually comparing this to Read the Bones and say this is crap?
there are people actually saying scry2 is worth more than an additional card

is it me who is out of touch or are these kids today completely beyond hope? how can you even compare scry2 to an additional card
I just don't know anymore
>>
>>45320587
Scry 2 BEFORE draw is worth more than 1 raw extra card if you're digging for something.

>lalala can't hear ya XD

Found the redditors, in any case if I wanted to play a 1turn flip coin format with + $1000 cost decks I would be playing fucking Yugioh.

This is Magic the Gathering, the game was intended to have long games where skill and cunning where the biggest factors in the duels. Not the current LOL I OTK YOU FIRST XD faggotry that is modern, legacy and vintage.
>>
>>45320587
read the bones can dig up to 4 cards when you need to draw an specific card. but in decks that are solid good stuff that only need cards in hand and don't really care what they are, truths is better
>>
>>45320587
I'd rather just drop a confidant the turn before and Lilliana this turn instead of painful truths.
>>
>>45320624
yeah okay, when you dig for something specific of course you will see one more card with Read the Bones

but the point is where is this "better" and where is Painful Truths "bad"
damn, drawing 3 cards in one of the named colors is insane
this nets you 2 cards as card advantage - I'd say this is Legacy playable

I think I will get me a playset
>>
>>45320733
This is not legacy playable and doesn't even see play in modern.

>>
>>45320694
Why do you think that banning twin/pod helped solve the problem of having too much variance?
No ban modern has more viable control decks than modern does, but your solution to make control viable is to make the ban list twice as large?
I suppose it will eventually work, but neither pod nor twin were particularly bad for the format.
>>
>>45320587
I really like Painful Truths as a one of in Junk. Not sure how I like it in Jund yet though
>>
>>45320788
>cards need to see play in modern to be good
yeah nah cuck, go suck Eldrazi cock

also, it already saw Legacy play as I just found out
Chapin played it in Esper Mentor
also, Grixis lists are currently testing it

I think Grixis is the home here
also they are dirt cheap, nothing that could go wrong here
>>
>>45320733
The card is nice in control. But honestly, all decks you will face in modern are trying to kill you by turn 3-4, so tapping out and paying 3 life is usually suicide. Even infect now and then go out for the damage route when retards start paying too much life for lands and thoughtseizes.
>>
>>45320865
chapin plays all kinds of loose shit not a great source
>>
>>45320694
Yes, not like turn 1 kills weren't in magic from the start.
>>
>>45320799
For me personally the only ban worthy thing in the pod modern was it's burn, and it could've been handled better - by banning one key burn element that is NOT lightning bolt. Anything really, just to make deck slightly less consistent. Pod was fine, twin was fine, cruise and dig was more then fine. There were really good bans like artifact lands, skull or dread, and then there are incredibly stupid ones. It was like 3 twin decks in 2015 champ. Why was it banned?
>>
>>45318073
>am I the only one who is getting fairly sick with these intense spikes and general over-speculation in all parts of the MtG community?

The only reason it's happening is because people have lost faith in Kikes of the Coast's ability to reprint cards. Inquisition of Kozilek opened the floodgate when it became apparent that they're not going to reprint good cards anymore and instead shit like Felidar Sovereign.

Return to Innistrad is just going to make it worse.
>>
>>45320998
>Return to Innistrad is just going to make it worse.

Oh boy, can't wait for the Lili and Snap buyouts
>>
>>45321087
may as well do it now since neither are getting reprinted in standard, lili was literally called out by name as a card that is too strong for standard and snapcaster is even stronger
>>
>>45320998
Thing is, that just plain doesn't matte for WotC. The only formats they give a shit about are Standard and Limited, everything else is just there as an afterthought and something to intrigue newbies with.
>>
>>45321113
wizards cares a lot about commander too, but only in so far as printing new cards for it

I played innistrad standard and lilianna was not a power house. That card would be fine in standard. I have no clue why wotc is watering down the power level of sets. Khans was a good set, but theros, BFZ are pretty weak. I just don't understand
>>
>>45321250
These cards weren't designed to be good. It's pretty clear at this point that R&D just forget that Eye of Ugin and Eldrazi Temple existed. The fact that Reality Smasher went from 4 anus mana to 1 anus and 4 should tell you that.
>>
>>45321297
honestly khans was pretty weak too, it was just the delve shit that really left a mark and that was eternal
>>
>>45321297
peaks and valleys anon. they also know what is considered "high end" for a spell or ability (bolt vs shock and how much drawing a card is worth are examples) and will reserve them to allow them to piecemeal be a thing.

Some blocks, burn will be above average, some blocks will have recursion being above average.

MtG players want all things to be in their best iteration at all times without realizing that is what vintage and legacy are for.

From personal taste, if the rock isn't a good archetype in a given standard, standard isn't in a good place.

Commander is a playground for the designers where they can just throw shit around they'd LIKE to make, but would break Limited or Standard. It's a way to blow off steam and go wild in an environment where it doesn't fucking matter. They aren't interested in actually managing the format in any way.
>>
>>45321297
>BFZ is weak

Have you seen the last PT ?
>>
>>45321381
the broken part of the deck is the fast mana, which isnt from bfz

the eldrazi themselves are just moderate standard power level midrange creatures, the reason its broken is the fast mana means they're all severely undercosted
>>
>>45321250
The harsh truth is that Wizards doesn't design or playtest for Modern, outside of some outliers. Modern was a way to create a new high profile revenue lane for the big secondary sellers because Vinate was dead and in the water and Legacy was withering away, nothing more, nothing less.
>>
>>45321381
The UR deck was the same OGW shell abusing 8 sol lands. That was what won matches. The BFZ cards merely gave it an edge against the other Eldrazi decks.
>>
>>45321326
For the most part yeah, but siege rhino is a pushed card. Khans block reminds me of Zendikar block power wise. Mostly because of the fetch lands.

I really felt let down that the planewalker commanders were such non cards. they are just planeswalkers that have common cards as their abilities. Solid Freyalise was particularly shitty.

>>45321381
BfZ is insanely weak, OGW is alittle better for a single archetype. overall the sets are really shit. A lot of rares in both sets that should have been uncommon ( a trend I hope they stop very very soon as even pros complain about it).

Thought Nazi was designed to be playable, not to be a format crushing piece of shit by coming down on turn 2. Small Eldrazi creatures are as big of a design mistake as Delve. With Delve they unestimated how easy it was to fill a yard in Vintage/Legacy/Modern, and with small Eldrazi they forgot Eye of Ugin and Eldrazi Temple existed.

from day 1. Mountain, black lotus, channel. pop lotus for GGG, use 2 of it to cast channel, turn 19 life into mana, use the last G to make it 20, tap the mountain and cast fireball.

I started playing in Onslaught block. I was a spike immediately and traded into most of my good stuff with piles of fun junk. Biggest problems now is the death of kitchen table culture. Now whenever trading is an option the kids whip out their smart phones and go for precise monetary equivalence. So whoever sets the prices on things effectively prices trades out of the equation all-together. Even those hole in the wall shops that used to be isolated have computers behind the desk and will price their cardboard relative to SCG or another retailer of their choice.

No you are not.

Unfortunately this won't change until people stop handing over their shekels at these ridiculous prices.

I can't believe people talk about a $40 card as "affordable." That's almost as much as your average videogame, and more than enough to buy three 6-packs of beer. For a piece of cardboard. It's insane.

The Rock is from Apocolypse era magic, while not the first 'deck' (the first deck was literally just called "the deck") it was one of the first actual archetypes. the only archetypes were aggro (weenie rush), control (draw go), or combo (real combo).

Midrange was just jank, as it should still be. aggro and control were focused enough that a deck of 4 mana 4/4s couldn't compete. combo was an actual archetype instead of iffy aggro.

Look up pernicious deed and spiritmonger. add treetop villages and the rest of the deck is disruption.

It was from a different time anon, a better time. People use jund over rock for reasons, but way back when, GB could do everything Jund could and better thru consistency.

Modern had a good run, but it's limited design space is starting to show. Without a revamp of the format it will need to be killed off.
>>
>>45322040
>limited design space
What do you mean by that?
>>
>>45322080

With such a large card pool consisting of so many good cards, it's very difficult to design new cards for the format without risking completely breaking it, or just making the strong decks stronger.

Much in the way Eldrazi just did
>>
>>45322020
creatures being better on average and spells being worse. WotC literally pushed the archetype the way they push chase rares.

The closest thing to old control we had recently was Rev decks using a single elspeth and a single jace as wincons. I remember watching a pro tour during that standard and a guy plays some cranial extraction type effect and names rev instead of elixir of immortality not knowing the actual wincon is the elixir in the matchup. Small aside but it isn't just the game that has changed, the players have too. They aren't as smart as they were back then, or the game now allows for sloppier play to still net you a good result more often.
>>
>>45322040

The problem is that there is no way to stop Modern from becoming "Linear City, USA" without a card like FoW and the idiotic bans they have applied to the format.

I say bring back Extended.

El Drizzle should be sacrificing its early game to out-midrange Midrange, instead it just fucks everything up for everyone everywhere forever while holding multi-archetype staples hostage thanks to running Chalice.

WotC is very very reluctant to make new cards that can make it in modern by displacing existing cards. If they just print better versions whats the point to playing modern over vintage? Like >>45322106 said there is already a huge pool, its also hard to create truly new cards (even card naming conventions have gotten inbred as a result). Then there is the problem of hurting feel feels. How many decks with the new Eldrazi decks force out until it is dealt with?

The only time a new thing happens in modern now is when wizards straight up misses it. Delve and eldrazi were because wizards took a new approach of fucking off with modern and letting it be a shitshow, then they will swoop in and create a new better fixed modern a few years from now to save us.

Them saying they don't really care to police modern anymore should have been a bigger red flag that modern is gonna be the wild wild west than most people thought it to be.

Of course I'd say Tasigur; there's no other way it can be interpreted besides the Golden Fang. If the original Borborygmos had a longer name like "Borborygmas, the Cyclops", then the judge would've most likely asked for further clarification, but unfortunately he provided the exact name of a card.

I'm certainly not interested in playing that deck, so I might as well sell-off while I can. Also I feel like the price should drop considerably if there are bans.

I'm just not hyped on Magic right now desu. Pre-eldrazi Modern decks are basically unplayable right now. Standard costs a million dollars and doesn't have things I want to do. OGW draft is alright, but doesn't inspire me. And I was going to build a Kozilek EDH deck but after the price spikes the deck now costs $1000+.

I think I'll cool it on Magic for a while.

>>45323084
I'm not positive, but my understanding is that in magic names are rigid designators that refer to a single object. So even though they do have the same name, the name latches on to the relevant card.

This could be incorrect, it's just how names work in magic generally.

>>45323174
110.5c A spell or ability that creates a creature token sets both its name and its creature type. If the spell or ability doesn’t specify the name of the creature token, its name is the same as its creature type(s). A “Goblin Scout creature token,” for example, is named “Goblin Scout” and has the creature subtypes Goblin and Scout. Once a token is on the battlefield, changing its name doesn’t change its creature type, and vice versa.

It means that you can't name tokens that lack a card, Splinter is the name of the creature token, and it had the same name as a card. It doesn't specify that the cards have to be the exact same card, just the same name.

you don't even need the full oracle text, just enough defining features to where it's "you couldn't possibly mean any other card".
If you don't know the exact name, it's usually best to describe it - or check the card itself if it's in a public zone! you're allowed to look at your opponent's yard for the right card name to choose.

Even though UR Eldrazi won the PT there seems to be more interest for the colorless variant.
Wonder if it's because of the novelty
>>
>>45323842
UR is basically good for the mirror and the rest of its matchups are slightly poorer, from the common consensus. It's still strong though
>>
>>45323842
The colorless version is the "stronger" deck, it does more broken things faster than the UR draft trash version, but it mulligans worse and is worse in the mirror.

That honestly seems like it's really bad, especially if it gets Pathed

nice job showing you've never played legacy you fucking retard faggot
Legacy is the grindiest of formats
>>
>>45323145
My legacy deck is Merfolk and that's awful right now.

I'm slowly putting together BUG cards to maybe play Food Chain. But that's like a six-months away kind of budget thing.
>>
>>45324205
Food chain is awesome
same with alluren
ill probably play burn though as i have everything except chain lightning
i just built eldrazi in modern and it will be banned the only question is when
im building living end and if ssg gets banned ill go to legacy
>>
>>45320788
It does see play in Legacy you fucking retard
>>
>>45324341
I doubt they would ban simian spirit guide, its the only reason combo exists in modern at the moment. Banning it destroys ad nauseam, grishoalbrand, and living end. What combo deck would even be left thats not tier 3?
>implying infect is a combo deck
>>
>>45324341
how is the living end vs eldrazi matchup btw? I could imagine it being pretty good against the lists that dont run that much graveyard hate.
>>
>>45321553
Economics 101.
When demand outscales supply, new suppliers rise to push the market towards price equilibrium

Thank you based Chinese free market for saving us from the protectionist iron fist of the Casters of the Coast
>>
>>45324355
It's played as a 1 of in a couple sideboards
>>
Honestly I see wizards banning all cards with the colorless mana symbol as a part of their cost. Having that in their mana cost completely breaks a variety of old cards and makes it much harder for them to print balanced colorless lands and other cards that produce mana.

I wouldn't be surprised to see both reality smasher and thought-knot seer banned instead of eye of ugin. The eldrazi deck was fine before oath of the gate watch.
>>
>>45324456
So something similar to what happened to Dig and Cruise?
>>
>>45324418
THANK YOU BASED CHINAMEN
>>
>>45323369
is the sorcery speed and double green all that keeps this from being sideboard hate for a bunch of decks?
>>
>>45324437
Yeah, because it's a situational as fuck card

It's powerful when it's usable, but decks that play Painful Truths are inherently superior in terms of card advantage against everything else anyway, so they don't need it unless they get into a super grindy match

Having a Painful Truths in hand against RUG Delver is painful
>>
>>45324393
i hear its good
i havnt played against living end yet
and my living end isnt complete
im building my eldrazi a little differently, its half way between the bw and the colorless
i cant afford chalices/cant find them so im running iok, thoughtseize and surgical extraction, with the regular spellskites and ratchetbombs
im not sure if i want to use matter reshaper, i want to try a few bearer of silence
>>
>>45321250
Oath cards are okay, but none of the cards from BFZ or Oath are EVER EVER played without Eye of Ugin and Eldrazi Temple outside of Standard
NEVER EVER


This is like saying Scourge was a high-power and broken set because it had Storm
>>
>>45324384
Even dank decks like skred like to run it for ramp and combat tricks

If Living End becomes the hot new anti-Eldrazi decks they will likely just go back to Relic/Processor as in the Frank Lepore build.

Modern is fucked.

>Modern is fucked.
No you're all just really fucking bad.
Eldrazi aren't unstoppable
>>
>>45321457

>tfw my janky ramp RoE eldrazi deck was so broken at kitchen table I either got teamed up on immediately or explicitly told I could only play it once.

Getting Spawnsire to fire was the most satisfying thing in the world. That and dicking everyone with an All is Dust. Ive since torn it apart to make my janky Eldrazi tribal EDH deck.
>>
>>45324758
meh the bw one kinda sucks
blight herder is shit
it would be cool to have a monoB one with a few wasteland stranglers and bearer of silence
>>
>>45321519

The set/cards aren't broken. It's their interaction with Eye. It literally turns even uncommon garbage Eldrazi into format-wrecking monsters.
>>
If wasteland was reprinted for modern, how do you think it will affect the format?
>>
>>45324891
Then they'd need to unban 12post since Tron would become unplayable (or would have to pack 4 mb needles at the very least). There'd be no reason for any deck not to run a set since no monocolored deck outside the random rogue every now and then (DT, 8rack, Taking Turns) takes large enough portion of the meta.

Eldrazi now has access to Wasteland. Great.

Everything runs 4 of it because there's no reason not to
>>
>>45325096
It's a land that doesn't tap for colored mana. It's best in decks that don't have greedy manabases, and in decks that don't need very many lands.
>>
>>45325096

Just like every deck in Legacy plays 4xWasteland, right?

>>45325312
>miracles
>trying to win on turn 2

Also shardless, burn, tezzerator etc.
>>
>>45325351
Other than burn all of those sometimes do run wastes. 12post, Inkmoth Nexus and Boseiju do exist.
>>
>>45325403
Miracles never runs wasteland. Shardless runs a couple as removal spells against manlands. And I think running more than 2 is a mistake in shardless. Same with esper deathblade.

The decks where running 4 wasteland is correct are aggro decks, or control decks with a specific utility land plan.

>I doubt they would do something retarded
You do know we're still talking about Wizards, yeah?
>>
>>45325589
They have to crack it at some point, can't crack racks and bridge at the same time and you don't need to dump all 8 into an uncracked one with a Bridge out and all the time in the world.

There's only 4 decks listed.

This format has been quite literally busted in half. Right now EVERYONE is brewing to try and beat this deck and no one can come close.
>>
>>45326571
Either the format is solved, or people haven't figured out how to beat eldrazi yet
