MDU's Rx Builds

I've had a rather bad Gameday experience with the Galli's aggro list. Doesn't feel the build is well suited to handle anything in this meta. Liliana is huge against almost all of our playable 1-drops, which aren't great against Bant either. The prevalent delirium decks are more midrange or play Kozi...

Hey, I don't know what level you normally play on, but I think 6-3 at a GP is an excellent finish, so congrats :) Don't forget that you did this with a deck you completely built yourself! --------------- With so many decks tapping out for on Liliana on t3, could it be that Scab-Clan Berserker out of...

Stuffy can you post your current list and possible Sideboard configurations? (I.e. what do you cut against which matchup?). Without that it's pretty hard to give good advice. Generally speaking, I'm not sure about GDD in your deck. It has anti-synergy with Reveler, and also because you run so few cr...

why Goblin Glory Chaser over Bellstriker? I'm not set on this one yet. Glory Chaser had my preference over Zurgo for 3 reasons: 1) Better chance of renowning him b/c of more burn 2) No-block clause of Zurgo vs. RW Humans and Bant 3) Can loot Glory Chasers drawn later with Defiance. I don't like any...

If you can support Languish, it's probably the best sideboard tech vs. Bant, espectially since they will likely not expect it and there's a chance they overcommit to the board.

MDU's Rx Builds

Intuitively, I would cut the card draw (possibly the 2 Read the Bones and 2 Tormenting Voice) This is as close as you can get to a traditional burn deck and very often this will turn into a damage race where you simply can't afford the tempo loss. It's possible that Bedlam changes all that but I'd b...

By the time you cast Reveler you will have typically played all your burn spells, hoping to draw one or ideally 2 more to finish opponent off. Note that you can sometimes cast a Temper for 1 mana when you play a Bedlam. That said, it's a slow grindy card, and I don't think you can play more than 1 o...

I would rate it stronger, because Emerge does not require to commit to "do nothing to the board" ramp spells....

Question is how many burn spells we want. I like Firecraft, but prefer the flexibility of Collective Defiance and not sure we can justify too many cmc3 spells?
