@ChubbyRain You stop it with your facts! They disagree with my preconceived notion that Gush is not broken. You need 2 islands in play to even cast it....

See 8 cards? Ok. This is to Ancestral Recall, what dig through time is to treasure cruise. However, it is missing phyrexian mana look at your opponents hand.

By the request of quite a few members of the community, a new article / tournament report on piloting Pitch Dredge builds: http://blackmagicgaming.com/stirring-the-pot-playing-pitch-dredge-to-perfection/

I think I came to the conclusion that is really much closer to piloting a Dragon deck than a traditional dredge deck. Enjoy!

Containment Priest has never been that good of dredge hate against a well prepared pilot, and the Loam/Portal/Pit combination was already seeing play before LSV.

"GIVE IT UP. Fork will never be unrestricted in Type I. It is a COPY CARD.
Repeat. It is a COPY CARD. There are just too many restricted Sorceries
and Instants prevalent in Type I to make this a reasonable card to
unrestrict."

"First of all, unrestricting Fork would be a phenomenally bad idea. One
is OK, beacuse it is a nice versatility card, but playing with more than
that would be overkill. Just think about some of the more hellatious
things to Fork: Wheel of Fortune, Time Twister, Braingeyser...yikes.
By being allowed four Forks you are breaking the environment pretty
badly, because you are essentially doubling the amount of a particular
sorcery or instant in you deck. Instead of four Disenchants or Hymn to
Tourachs, your now playing with eight, for example. Nasty..."

In my opinion, meaningful decisions beyond the mulligan step for both players is what is important, not necessarily interactivity.

For the time being until something else is implemented I thought I would start a thread where people can let us know if they are streaming.

With that said... if the daily fires I will be streaming at [https://www.twitch.tv/vaughnbros](link url)

I think it should be pretty obvious if you are crewing this with creatures, you are doing it wrong.

@Ten-Ten Gush has been a problem since it was unrestricted.

There have been plenty of combos in standard in the past and none of them ended the game. This is a total overreaction.

@Smmenen I'm not sure if you just can't count or what. Its up to 122 for change, and 103 for Mentor now.

A majority want change, and of those that want change a majority want Gush gone. That is a truth. 65/122 > 50%.

Also a fact is that more people are for a Gush restriction than for no change, 65>42.

You are pretty clearly on a tirade to make sure that your favorite card is not hit with a restriction. Which is funny because you were complaining about Vocal Minorities destroying the format before. According to the results of this much larger poll than the previous, you are in fact visibly the vocal minority.

Combined your tables, and added a corresponding column to see how deck are performing compared to their metagame presence...

Unsurprisingly, Shops and Mentor are far exceeding their metagame percentages, while everything else ranges from around 0 to massive negative.

@wfain Apology accepted. Sorry for derailing the thread.

@nedleeds

I primarily play Dredge because I hate losing to Force of Will so much.

I also put my own Force of Wills in the deck to counter my opponents Force of Wills.

While the new site looks great being clean and easy to navigate. It also seems that we have lost some of our ability to filter through posts easily.

Being able to unfollow threads that we are not interested in helps us get to the content that we really care about much quicker.

Being able to block individual users allows us to ignore users we may find offensive, and help to prevent the need for moderation in many threads.

@socialite My comment explicitly said 10 or 11 lands. "Sources" is not an indication of how well the deck deals with thorn. Pretty sure moxen get taxed by thorn.
