@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.
4-1 today in league. Rebuilt the sideboard to fight only Shops, Outcome, and Dredge. Fair blue decks are basically easy wins (and you can still bring in Leo, Thalia, and Abrupt Decay to help).
Is this deck worth it's own thread and maybe a primer at this point? Is that something people would be interested in? If so I can try to record my replays after I finish a league so people could see it in action (I play on a tablet so the best I can do is record with my phone after the fact).
