Wow. I'm so glad I got to be a part of the growth of this deck. Congrats to the maker, your baby is running before crawling.

stone of silence in main deck ...? right?
me thing is great in this deck

Man I'd love to see that winning list - looks like pure fire.

Additionally, the opponent was such a great sport - props to that fellah.

As someone who was very sceptical of the survival deck for a long time and credited a lot of its success to it mostly just being unexpected I have to say i was probably wrong on that one.
Glad to see another successful viable strategy.

Could some please explain why Sekimoto scooped game 1? I didn't see any POs or Mentors in his grave, and he had the vault lock.

@babau yeah. I’m kinda mad I never tried it in the 60. I’ve had 3 in the board basically since I added Savannah, but never thought to start them.

@covetousrat

1x Survival
2x PO (1x Jeskai, 1x Straight UB with 4(!) Trinket mage)
1x Inferno Oath
4x Jeskai

is what I got from reading the lists quickly.

@covetousrat, I’m really surprised WoTC dont specify English as their primary platform to advertise their Eternal WE to wider community. Japanese coverage, decklists and live commentary...

Am I correct in calling this the most expensive competitive deck in Magic?

Yeah. There is no announcement anywhere. Saw there's a Legacy stream on twitch MTG the other day and was lucky to find out about that event.

@p3temangus in paper, I believe so! Online it is nearly budget though, kinda funny tbh.
Mtggoldfish paper price from card kingdom: $33,084.87
Online price: 408.76 tix. (My version is cheaper at around 250 tix)

Compare to average Shops deck:
$27,939/371 tix

Outcome:
$31,566/552.63 tix

Wow, MTGO looks insanely cheap (relatively speaking). Does a Tix roughly translate into a dollar?

@wfain I think some older versions of Dragon might price out higher today, but yes, Survival is the opposite of Budget!

https://www.mtggoldfish.com/deck/394856#paper--shows 36k as a price!

I think uba-stax was more expensive. Pack, bazaar and workshop.

Not most competitive at the moment, but...
