I played the same deck, card-for-card, last week in the challenge. I went 2-0 before losing two straight matches to DPS. Thepowernine simultaneously went 4-2 with it. I went 5-0 in a league with it but also 0-4 drop.

I think it’s one of the better ways to play PO since you have Lavinia as a hybrid Defense Grid/Control card, you have the Narset combo, Empty the Warrens (which is great right now), and Pyroblasts for opposing Narsets.

I think in general PO is in a rough spot right now because of Karn and other factors so there is going to be a lot of variance with the results, but when it’s hot there’s no beating it. Congratulations on the strong performance!

@desolutionist you have to run hot no matter what you play atm do to the nature of these must answer threats that have been printed post WAR.

PO is in a better spot Post London than it was before but still not as good a spot as it was pre Narset/Karn/Ouphe/FoV

I think there is some iterating left to do here to maximize its potential
