@serracollector Gilded Drake is also very interesting
Makes me still want a SS to bounce the Drake after though! (fully aware that won’t matter).
One potential difference in this case is vs Containment Priest or Ethersworn Canonist- we want those off the board, not on our side. Maybe having 1 of each is correct after all.
Would Metamorph be worth trying over Drake/SS? I know it is expensive but its much more multi modal.
Is Ethersworn Canonist worth it in the sideboard? Hollow one is an artifact so you could combo through it.
I can't believe no one has mentioned Squee, Goblin Nabob!
@wfain I really like that sideboard probably gonna copy that.
I am going to start a league tonight as well although my list incorporates Mental misstep cause I like some form of disruption and stopping a ponder or preordain if they mull a bunch can give us the turn or two we need to win. Love to hear how bob turns out as well.
@wfain I've thought about it. If it wasn't an artifact I would run it in a heartbeat as something to avoid Hurkyls with but damping sphere hurts us slightly and does nothing to an EoT hurks. Although neither does null rod. I really don't know other than they can still draw and make mana with Damping sphere out.
Damping Sphere vs other decks tho is interesting vs Dark Petition Storm where null rod can be ignored it is an allstar, I have noticed that in my oath list. Vs Shops I don't think its worth it over null rod or energy flux, as stopping ravager or forcing all in on a single ravager is what we want right?
Edit: Unfourntunately due to me working night shift Leagues are impossible like only 85 people in the league and no one is online at 1:00am to 5:00am
@serracollector I like it so far. When outcome has Tormod's crypt or grafdigger's out dropping thalia and leo is really good plus having stony. I like having every lock piece now not getting hit by hurkyl's recall which lets me turn into a psuedo hatebear deck with a combo finish is super cool.
Gave on Misstep as I felt having more card advantage and filtering was better than protecting a t1 birds or looting. Added Frantic Search which would be nice to see unrestricted one day as discarding vengevines and untapping lands is exactly what we need to help cast hollow ones or more survival triggers if our board gets wiped.
Looking at just straight running 2 Leo in the main with how good a t2 leo can be vs any blue deck and if you manage to cast it vs shops its really funny vs ballista.
Here is what I have been having decent success with:
