That which is broken cannot break.

Image

So submissions are in and we have 6 competitors who have totally broken Wilderness Reclamation, or have they? Be the judge! Build the decks, try them out and tell us who is greatest breaker of cards this time around.

NightHawk233


Giocher (Wild Storm)


DaRkStAr


Kryder


Cucho Lambreta


AD2016


Rules:
1. Break-a-contest brews must play all 4 copies of the chosen card.
2. Final lists must be sent to me by private message before the deadline. Want to make a change? Sure, just make sure to be clear about which is the final one.
3. Want to be a judge? Be prepared to blow some WCs on jank, because you can't judge a list without playing it.
4. Have fun!
5. The winner gets to choose the card for the next contest.
6. I'll leave judging criteria to each judge to choose (although clarification by the judges is welcome). All I need is that you order submitted lists from best to worst.
7. Participants can also be judges. Just use common sense and be fair when judging your own lists.
8. The winner will be the list with the highest classification (points awarded from 1 to however many lists are submitted, from last to first)
9. In case of a tie, the winning lists will actually play against each other to determine the winner.

Deadline is April 5th.
Just build, play and rank the decks. Post your adventures or videos so we all can see the jank in action.
In case your missing some cards (and WCs) and want to judge anyway, I'd suggest you ask the participant for some possible replacements (bear in mind the alterations when you score the decks though).

The judgement:

CovertGo Blue


Cucho Lambreta


DaRkStAr


divinevert


Results
1. DarkStar: 19 Points (2+6+5+6)
2. Cucho: 18 Points (6+2+6+4)
3.Giocher: 15 points (5+4+1+5)
4. NightHawk: 12 Points (4+5+3+3)
5. Kryder: 9 points (1+3+4+1)
6. AD2016: 8 points (3+1+2+2)


Congratulations DaRkStAr! You have the honour, privilege and responsibility of choosing the next card to be broken.

I'm gonna make the quality of the judging count for the next round, giving double points for the most voted judge!

If there is something wrong in any of the decklists, now is the time to tell me so I can fix it.

In my list the last 5 cards are actually the (not optimized) sideboard.

The idea is quite straightforward, TYS is not a new card, what makes the deck different is that you combo off at instant speed in the same turn you play TYS, somehow protecting it. Reclamation is also double protection, because if opponent has enchantment removal he will use it on reclamation, and you can still combo off with TYS in the usual way the turn after you play it.

About replacements, i guess you can play 3 TYS, it will still work but less consistently, i don't think 2 or less are enough. The rest of the cards are just commons and uncommons also heavily played, so it's a friendly deck, if you really need just use other cantrips, but they need to be instants preferrebly cheap. You can disregard the sideboard.

Edit: there seems to be more rares than i thought, but the idea is the same, check some instant cantrip.

About lands, you can replace some with gates, but you don't need so many duals, you can add more basics.

I'm surprised nobody did a zacama deck... What could be more lovely than zacamaing your opponent various times a turn?

Was tempted to go down a Zacama route, was gonna try and cheat him out with Electrodominence but had no idea if its ability worked with electrodominance so gave up haha

1. Cucho - Fun, maybe good
2. Giocher - more storm than reclamation, but fun
3. Nighthawk - lost to tectonic rift
4. AD2016 - didn't do much with reclamation for my taste, but was pretty fun
5. Darkstar - Midrangy, not very powerful, not that fun, not my style
6. Kryder - made me play bo3, nuff said

Preferred Pronoun Set: Mr.
That was fun. I missed everything after Cucho's deck. Had to do some running. Thanks for judging Blue. I'm getting in on the next one.
What's the next card to break Cucho?
Fall of the Thran?
:evil:

Edit: Nevermind. Didn't realize we will have multiple judges. Still though, Fall could be fun and Vert brought up haphazard bombardment which could be really lulz.

Where's Barney and soup cannon when you need them?

Ok time to kickoff this trial.
At first glance... this are almost all B03 decks...
no SB guides?
I will do what I can on that regard.. I´m takind the decks for a quick warm up round and then start the trials

Trials will be like this
1. Warm up round
2. Then its 2 losses and out, for every deck B01 or B03
3. For each win there will be awarded 1 point B03 will be awarded just one win for a match
4. Special Cucho points for fun in game plays

Let the trials begin.

Will be streaming this warm up round

Giocher takes an easy win Vs Drakes on B01

Kryder next... damn this only is legal on B03....
G1... destroyed by Simic Nexus of gates guess we board the Rams?
G2 We played it nicely -now we know he is packing counters so we took precautions... onto G3
G3 we mull to 6, but opponent had Azcanta T2 Counter T3 Wilderness T4 Wildernes T5 and took off.. I did not watch it masturbate on his nexus... scooped

AD2016 next
Against Drakes
we took G1 easy... played awful tho
SB is a Puzzle here...
This deck is one hot mess...
how do I play this thing ?!
Ok opponents scoops... Apparently he mull incorrectly and I resolved a T3 Reclamation...
But I dont really see how you make full use of reclamation in this deck...

NightHawk next
Huge punt on me... and equally big loss against mono green crap

Dark Star last
**** in the ass by Mardu mayhem...

jeez this went bad...
I will skip my own warm up round coz...

Onto the Slaughter house!

Nighthawk first
Now this is what this contest is all about!
Vs mono white lifegain BS
I resolved 3 familiars, muldratha -without any target on the GY- and one druid that could have grown into the sky FUN FUN.
+1 Cucho points!
1-0

Kryder next
-this B03 are super time demanding I guess we should be restricting this contest into B01 for next time, or there will be no Judges left-
Stupid B03 unranked ladder is full of this simic gates crap..
G01 he resolved a Reclamation countered my own reclamation... nuff of this crap!
onto G2
Ixalan on my Ram..
Two reclamation on board and one Ooze...
I hate to play one turn behind with this crappy gates... HATE I say!
0-1

Me next
Vs another stupid bant Nexus... guess this ladder is for Nexus abuse...
mana starving G1..
onto G2
intense staring contest.. won by me Ha!
he countered my Niv... Nuff said!
I played this like an idiot...
:(
0-1 for me

Giocher Next
vs one funky Artifacts deck
things are not looking good tho...
G1 for him... surprise was a big part of his win
G2 we played a bit better took the win home
onto G3
We draw very poorly... he deployed before we could start getting things going...
0-1

Jeez....

AD2016 next...
Loss... against izzet drakes...
my god... please let me win something!!!!
This deck is awful shame on AD2016
0-1

last one

Easy win vs a mana screwed gates deck
1-0

Me next

There should be a secondary award for best reviewer.

For each deck I am missing some cards (especially lands), but I could make slightly worse versions of the decks and judge them if you guys would be interested!? (Except for Kryders deck, because I have 0 Nexus of Fate)

Sure, just post your changes and keep them in mind when you judge the decks.
I'm probably gonna have to do the same.
