@DrStreetmention said in White Eldrazi:
@wappla Why do you say that Thought Knot and Displacer are weak? It looks like the Exemplar and Copter push the deck in a more aggressive and less disruptive direction. Is this the right way to go?
Maximizing the utilization of tempo gains associated with tax effects lends itself to a deck that already wants to kill it's opponent by turning creatures sideways. When you improve your clock you improve every other card in the deck. The strength of Thorn, Thalia, THC, and Trinisphere is indirectly proportional to the number of turns your opponent gets. By lowering the curve you widen the gap at which Wasteland and Strip Mine can be utilized as spells rather than sources of mana. Both of the aforementioned points is increasingly important in Eldrazi or in this case Snow White and the Four Dwarves precisely because we do not play Tangle Wire. All of these points were accentuated by improving the mana base, made possible by cutting some of the Eldrazi. Displacer is brilliant in elongated game states, something I'd prefer to avoid considering the offensive options available to other archetypes. Thought Knot is kind of like Adrian Petersen, he looks really great during the draft then spends the entire season injured and when he does play you start to realize how awful over paying for Tidehollow Sculler is.
Remember kids, play to your strengths.
