Hello Pitch Dredge lovers
I Top8ed November P9C, losing "only" to @The-Atog-Lord Stax twice.
During rounds I faced :
- Call1Me1Dragon (UW Standstill) 2-1
- mtgosalseo (Saheeli Oath) 2-0
- The_Atog_Lord (Stax) 0-2
- Mr.Random (Griselbrand Oath) 2-1
- K0de (TKS Ravager) 2-0
- lsv (Mentor Gush) 2-0
I madeTop8 with 5-1 result positioned as 3rd after 6 rounds.
In Top8 I lost to The_Atog_Lord 1-2
I missed land drop to assemble Marit Lage for several turns during game 3 before he found double Wasteland+ Crucible sealing it with Smokestack. All 3 post board games (during rounds and Top8) he had Leyline of the Void which pretty much shut downed dredge plan leaving Marit Lage combo as an only option.
I already replied to @Lesbimagical about my MD reasoning but I will paste it here as well :
I am playing Pitch Dredge for some time now. I started with standard Adams list, slowly modifying it during time.
First modification was Dragonlord Kolaghan MD since deck was missing classic dredge explosives.
Great weakness of post board plan is Karakas, Wasteland, and Jace -1 ability, so 2nd modification was Pitting Needle in sideboard ( @Islandswamp credit). Due to needle I was forced to trim lands, so I abandoned Library of Alexandria plan trimmed Urborg to 3 and included 1 MD.
Urborg MD can be great for hard casting therapies and even creatures if we face Containment Priest game 1 which we can easily beat by casting creatures and sacking it to therapies with GY full of bridges.
Last modification was including Ashen Rider MD, which can answer bunch of threats and is really mvp against many decks.
Since I wanted lots of heavy filers to deal with Moat, or block Blazing Archon until I found solution for it and I love “free wins” there are 3 Chancellor of the Annex MD.
Chancellor is basically flying Lodestone Golem and can easily steal games if opponent kept hand which is reliable of Ponder/ Preordain or mana light.
Since I want Kolaghann, Ashen Rider and Chancellor to be easy accessible hence 3 Dread Returns MD. Also it is useful to sac/ return Ashen rider multiple times.
I feel that Pitch Dredge is positioned very well right now, just we need that fine tuning for particular meta from time to time.
