With Ancestral and Flusterstorm in hand, I an inclined to always go greedy, and Ancestral in response to the opponent putting an instant or sorcery on the stack.
But without a second sources of blue, I likely flusterstorm to keep the top, since it can't protect the Ancestral.
Unlimited. Once you’re willing to accept proxies in the first place, it feels arbitrary to say “your $1000 Library can be fake, but your $500 Underground Seas need to be real.”
Seconded. Seems real weird that this wasn't an option.
I like some cap, so that people aren't proxying commons on top of other commons.
I pretty frequently proxy random cheap cards that I just don't happen to have while playing lots of cards that cost way more. I'd hate to not be allowed to play just because I don't play Preordain in any of my Legacy decks.
It is more about the game state being clear, so as Nova said, 100% proxy is fine if printed well. But getting blown out by a plains that is partially underneath another proxy, and has "tabernacle" scribbled on it is not a good experience.
Hey everyone, I’m new to this deck and have enjoyed playing it online. The first time I played the deck in paper I had a situation where I had a leyline of the void and a grindstone in play. My opponent thought he was dead not knowing the combo so I activate grindstone, and he puts the first two cards of his library in the graveyard and then asks some questions to which I don’t respond and then he concedes. Is this some moral grey area of the rules or am I obligated somehow to clarify?
This could easily be “Misrepresenting the Gamestate” which is a DQ and possible suspension. Hard to know exactly what happened from your description.
@rat3de I think the strength of PO in this deck is when Frenzy isn't present. But you could build a DD half of the deck that works without EF.
Wouldn't you just pick up the frenzy as well so there is no down side?
They work really well together, but they also work well on their own.
Building EF / DD, I don’t know if that is true.
@tittliewinks22 Do you mean this as an enabler for Eggs? Sac a bunch of moxes/land, draw a bunch of cards, cast second sunrise, repeat?
Pretty similar to Paradoxical Outcome, and can return an Academy over and over, but PO does this without being reliant on the graveyard.
