Same. I play rarely enough that due to cost and learning, I try to stick to one deck. For example, I know Z is moving away from burn due to the meta but I'm going to stick it out because it's what I know.

Raise the alarm?

Green eats you up but it's a neat surprise against the red, blue, or black decks.

Here's my videos from last night. I finally got my wish and played 3 mono U and looks like I was rusty from some of the sequencing I did. I'm sticking traditional because, well, it's me. I went ahead and dropped one mortar for a stoke, mostly for BW and MBC and dropped the two hushwing for 2 glare f...

Got my wish, 3 mono blue and one mono black after I cut hushwing. I did manage to lose a game with flamespeaker because I chained too often instead of using other removal because I got greedy for card draw. Oops. Also, a really, really, really massive misplay on the last turn where I thought I neede...

I know you all keep asking why I'm on flamespeaker still. Looking at the most recent meta update, the ones I don't want to use it against are MBC and Jund monsters or walkers. So that leaves... BW, U Dev, Rx, GW, UWx. 75% of the meta seems pretty good for a sideboard card (for my playstyle). Or, it ...

Hushwing still shits all over mono blue and green devotion since it turns off around 12 cards after they sideboard with little hope of removing it. Against mono blue, I'm ok just considering it a global enchantment while I faceroll through the rest of the match. The problem is that neither are a ser...

Based on that, looks like it's time to pull out hushwing. It's still great against blue but probably not necessary (and I never play against it), medicore and really too slow against any of the BTE/denizen or BTE/Fanatic decks where I don't need help, and meh vs BW with a downside of possibly being ...

Neither does packrat, especially without card draw to back it up. Game 1 with walkers you're really trying to slam a bunch of card advantage engines on the board that a lot of decks have a problem answering effectively even if they're killing each walker as they come. I'm not sure 3 Chandra is reall...

Searing blood is actually really pretty good against walkers. About the only deck where you want to both stall and race at the same time. Or it removes two permanents at the same time which is really really good.

I don't think you need it though with a traditional sideboard.

My exact board plan was -4 chain/yp for 3 mortar, 2 chandra, 2 banish, and 1 pillar. Should have been a second pillar and 2 mortar in hindsight because he was on reaper and I'm sure Ichikawa's brings in some number of Mistcutter. If you run Trouble, you should put it in here. You can use that to cut...

That sounds about right although I think I prefer mortars over chain if you're trying to deal with courser because it has a better upside with overload and can't be counterspelled with charm/decay/Vraska. I like to be in a position where I can ignore any planeswalker other than Xenagos and yes, this...

What exactly is the cause of your obsession with giving non sequiturs? You're arguing with me on a point I didn't make.

Although I believe I disagree with you anyway since his deck is so low on win conditions.

My answer to fiendslayer vs control is still flamespeaker. The downside is it's also answered by last breath or celestial flare but it's also not potentially a dead card that also doesn't turn planar cleansing into a blowout. Although I can see doing both if they are on paladins and you're trying to...

if you're referring to the Donald Smith poster, yea that's me. You're doing God's work. I'm still confused why "I have a ton of removal and 8-10 win conditions" is hard to see as a control deck as opposed to "I have a ton of (more expensive) removal and a few win conditions".

You want to save YP until it can make a token if at all possible. Phoenix is a late game finisher versus these decks.
