@chubbyrain obviously the answer here is Sorrow's Path. If I had a dollar to every game I lost to that card. Geez. Just below Abandon Hope I tell ya. I really think this B&R list is going in all the wrong directions. The sorrows path/abandon hope archetype is truly out of control. Throw in leeches to the mix. Immediate concession.

@garbageaggro I did not play in this tournament but I did write a full post on my experience using 4xHollow One in my dredge list after my last tournament on August 12 if you would like some other insight. It's in the Dredge going into summer 2017 board. Just a heads up. Thank you.
Your Favorite Card Art
I, as I'm sure is the case for most of you, have played magic for a long time. Since I started playing I've always been amazed, interested, and sometimes displeased with the art on Magic Cards. Thinking about the process when someone has to draw what a Thoughtseize or Force of Will should look like and coming to a final product has always interested me. Over the years I've developed my opinions on what is the best art/ my favorite art among magic cards. Personally my favorite is Stasis.
It certainly is not the best art by far. I love it because it's so random. Why is there what appears to be some sort of jester and a blindfolded fox on a see-saw? Why is the fox holding a ball? Or whatever that is. Why is there a easel floating between them? What's that blue stuff in the background? Is the Jester vomiting up flubbers blue cousin? How did these two beings get into this increadibly strange situation? Am I just an idiot and all of these things are more clear to everyone else? In any case it has always been my favorite art and makes me smile and laugh whenever I see it!
So, for some light hearted discussion, I want to know what your favorite art is and why? Funny, visually pleasing, personally moving, etc.
Hope you guys have a favorite just like me and look forward to hearing about them!
P.S. Please, let's not somehow devolve this into another B&R discussion where someone suggests restricting Squire because it can swing 20 times for game and someone else gets very upset because the meta is always so anti-Squire. Have some fun!
RE: Dredge going into Summer 2017
Hello all, I wanted to give an update on some interesting cards and Interactions for dredge after a recent tournament. I played an interesting list at the Deal me in games bi-monthly tournament yesterday, overall it was not a great day for me but it did allow me to report on some things I've wanted to try in dredge.
I was running 4 Hollow ones main deck in the list. It definitely creates some interesting interactions and allowed the deck to come from a different axis than normal. Had one hit the board in almost every match including a dredge mirror and two in one match. It was especially good in games 2-3 Becuase it got around all their hate and opponents often had trouble getting it off the board. Simply presenting a 5 turn clock early game was great pressure. This was especially relevant in the dredge mirror. Opponent had a turn 0 Leyline of the void and this presented a nice clock while I dug for removal for the Leyline especially since he didn't have a bazaar early game.
Other than the dredge mirror I had 3 matches against shops where this was helpful early game and also comes in through a sphere which was really helpful. Opponent had a Thorn and Sphere Turn one and I dropped two of this guy for free. Presenting a three turn clock on turn one on top of my dredging was great.
The big downfall to this guy is he is basically dead after he hits the yard. Can't pitch to Ichorid and just sort of sits there. Though I did dread return him one match with no other targets.
I'm going to keep him in the list and try him out some more overall I was pretty happy with how this guy interacts with my list and in game play.
So this guy was definitely a wild card in the deck. I dropped my dragon lord and Griselbrand to run two of these. When they hit they were awesome. They presented a really tough decision for the opponent and each time they decided to take the damage straight and every time it resulted in game over. He hit the board three times for 9 damage, 12 damage, and 15 damage reapectively (hit troll, troll, hollow one for game). I really like him as a dread target but he does not present the same guaranteed game ending ability that Griselbrand usually does. However, I really like the decision it makes the opponent make and will continue to run him in the list for some more feedback.
The big con to this guy is that he is not playable late game if you are down to only a few cards left in your library. This situation never came up but it was always in the back of my mind that it could happen.
Overall I really like both of these cards. Just wanted to give anyone interested some feedback. Hopefully next tournament I will have better results overall.
