@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:
This is the version I would play today in the challenge if I could:
So far Stony Silence has more impact against the various outcome and storm decks than Mindbreak Trap did. Oath is still pretty rough, you can beat them with explosive Bazaar draws or if a SotF goes unchecked. Could certainly load up on SB Abrupt Decay if we wanted to really beat them but that weakens other areas. I suppose you could change an Ingot Chewer to a Decay, but that makes your land fetching more difficult vs Shops decks.
