Is this the first time someone picks a card and doesn’t submit a build?

Flaky if you could email the lists to me, I’d luv ya almost as much as your new puppy does

I’m pretty sure it happened once before.

I’ll email you the lists soonish so you can hate me slightly more than my puppy does.

Sorry guys, the wife has convinced me to take a break from Magic... Well, from all forms of gaming actually...

So I guess I'm kind of going through my own personal desert...

Loved the idea bzzt, didn't even occur to me to go that route.

She doesn’t want you home playing Magic?? She’d rather you hang out in bars with your buddies, coming home late smelling like perfume?

Sad to see you go.

Guys, now that Haven's gone, let's talk about him behind his back!

Copter and gods... I needed one instant to deal with some creatures... but now you made me doubt, I guess I played ballista the wrong way and often dropped it at 2 -4 Cmc just to be mana efficient. That 90% of the cases translated on a bad trade.

Haven.. I might join you in the desert soon, we can start working on turning water into wine.
But as a wise man said it's all about proportions ;)

Nomad why don’t you think Displacer and Thought Knot get along? I think they’re brilliant together. Why do I care if my opponent draws a card if I’m going to be immediately exiling his very best card each time? Enjoy your mana flood dummy !!

Because it doesn't resolve that way. The blink resolves fully as a single event, leaving the stack with a draw and then a discard trigger. So the discard resolves first, then the draw.

Even so, he’s trading his best card for a mystery card each time. There’s a chance he’ll draw as good or better but unless his hand really sucks, the odds are better that he’s getting a downgrade.

Yeah I’m still good with the combo even if the timing isn’t optimal

@ Haven -maybe the next round should be "design a deck that Haven's wife would like"

@ Mowie -I think you should submit, I need some animist awakening/hagra shenanigans!

@ Barney/Nomad - I'm torn, I guess the balance is whatever the best card in their hand is, it's not killing me but the top card of their deck might? I think I'm 63% Barney on this, 37% Nomad

That´s a great combo... just on the fact that you know what he has on his hand... and you are playing control.

I'd rather go for the actual card advantage Endbringer offers though.

Yup in reading the old M14 threads, Mobius used to always say to not discuss a card in a vacuum cuz everything is relative. Endbringer probsbly makes way more sense.

Hey at what point this contest started squandering so much sense?
