Don't worry about Legacy in the bay area, though these all look like they might be a drive for you.

Somewhere else does Wednesdays...
Thursdays at 7pm at Endgame in Oakland (3 rounds)
Somewhere else does Fridays or Saturdays, as well, I believe

I was on Two-Card Monte and split top 4.

I beat white Eldrazi (through Leyline of Sanctity) 2-0, colorless Eldrazi 2-0 and Forgemaster Shops 2-1, ID'd twice (played for funsies with Landstill and got wrecked 0-2), then beat a TITI deck 2-0 in the top 8.

The deck felt far better than it seemed when goldfishing, but I think I was also drawing quite a bit better than average... I had a lot of opening hands with a full combo, and drew the timely Tutor / Tinker / Wheel in some instances with no deck manipulation. It seems like a great counter to the Eldrazi menace given the spheres don't cripple you like they do other decks.

Play of the day was in a friendly with white Eldrazi. Turn 1 grind through Leyline. Ancient Tomb (2), Lotus (2RRR), Mana Vault (4RRR), Painter (2RRR), Grindstone (1RRR), REB your Leyline (1RR), activate Grindstone.

@Stormanimagus Yeah I was just trying to solve the "can counter cards that can't be countered issue." The original card also had other effects and tradeoffs.

@rikter Just use exile? "If an opponent casts an spell outside his or her main phase, exile that spell."

I haven't really seen any Chains showing up in top 8 decklists, though. What is the best shell for Chains right now?
