I hear you on the Waste thing. I think I'm only working with one Ramunap right now. There might be other cards I'd like to craft even though I really want more of those also.

Updated my Drake/Fling deck. I can only see one more change inevitably coming and that is a possibly a +1 Phoenix -1 Chart a Course. It's undecided though as my new Protean Raider has been acting as a second Phoenix if needed.
It's perfectly ok as is though. Went 8 for 10 in a "best of" two nights ago and met 9 different deck styles.
:evil:

Got That Swing

2 x Bloodwater Entity
2 x Rekindling Phoenix
4 x Enigma Drake
2 x Cryptic Serpent
1 x Protean Raider
3 x Opt
3 x Unsummon
1 x Censor
2 x Essence Scatter
2 x Negate
3 x Strategic Planning
3 x Fling
4 x Lightning Strike
2 x Abrade
2 x Magma Spray
1 x Puncturing Blow
1 x Search for Azcanta
1 x Field of Ruin
2 x Highland Lake
2 x Evolving Wilds
9 x Island
8 x Mountain

This is the Drake deck deck I'd like to try out:

Creatures
3 x Siren Stormtamer
1 x Nimble Obstructionist
4 x Enigma Drake
2 x Rekindling Phoenix
2 x Glorybringer
1 x The Locust God
Instants
4 x Opt
3 x Magma Spray
2 x Censor
4 x Lightning Strike
2 x Supreme Will
Sorceries
2 x Tormenting Voice
2 x Sweltering Suns
Enchantments
4 x Favorable Winds
2 x Riddleform
Lands
4 x Highland Lake
9 x Island
9 x Mountain


I'm missing a bunch of cards, but I like the idea of the drakes having 5 or 6 toughness and 6/6 Glorybringers can't hurt either.
I may try a more aggro version too (more low-cost flyers) or a prowess aggro build that although I Doubt will work, could be fun.

Don't know what game you are playing. 60% of all I see is UB control.
Rarely any aggro

The meta in general is creature focused. If you take the average or random player right now, they may even be just a tester playing with one of the pre-made decks, compared to Duels I dont even think there is a heavily control focused "base" deck anymore. Dinos, Merfolk, Explore etc, it's all board based. That's why control is good to play if you're actually trying to climb (I cant imagine why you would bother at the moment, since a reset is bound to happen.) If you're playing against gold+, yeah, you'll probably run into control-heavier decks more. Best of luck out there :)

That enchantment would fit right in Flaky´s contest.
Are there more flash flyers on izzet?

There's Dreamcaller Siren (and Aven Reedstalker and Wind Strider but those are bad).

Dominaria has Tempest Djinn (uncommon, UUU, flying */4 with power equal to number of islands you control) that's going to make a mono blue winds deck pretty enticing.

Also Weatherlight and a legendary Mahamoti Djinn you can cast for 3U if you tap an artifact.

I'm at gold 4 atm and the meta is quite unforgiving. Its mostly Rdw, Gruul monsters/dinos, Cats (least Frequent), merfolk, Embalm tokens and lifegain vamps on the Creature side and BU Scarab-control, some with a red splash for nicol bolas.
Off the top of my head, I'd say mono-red and Dimir Scarabs are Tied in popularity and constitute 50-60% of the meta. Only deck that seems consistent against both creatures and control is mono-red (Yay!).

Just played a really satisfying game against Dimir Scarab control. I got out T1 Buccaneer and my opponent proceeded to counter/kill every other creature I dropped, but bucaneer and deserts get his life down to 9. He starts running out of cards but taps out to drop Scarab god. I look at my hand and see a lonely Magma Spray... I'm screwed right?
Wrong, I top lightning strike and exile the scarab. Feels good :), but its not won yet...
He starts dropping and eternalizing Champion of wits all over the place, but my solitary Hazoret shows up when I need her (contrary to what usually happens when I'm flooding and in top-decking mode) and I bashed him hard and discard with her ability ftw. He failed to draw an answer... Too bad. That win felt really good, killed a Scarab god and won with Hazoret, doesn't get much better than that... :D

Where are people putting their deck builds currently? Is this where they go? Dropped $50 on the game and had saved a lot of wildcards and gold going into Dominaria and this is one of the decks I have built. Good record so far with it but too early to tell. Just needing to tweak it a bit? Suggestions please?


It's Just a Flesh Wound! :fight:

2x Baffling End
3x Gideon's Reproach
4x Knight of Grace
2x Paladin of Atonement
4x Seal Away
4x Benalish Marshal
1x Danitha Capashen, Paragon
2x Desert's Hold
4x History of Benalia
2x Radiant Destiny
2x Call the Cavalry
2x Cast Out
2x Ixalan's Binding
2x Kwende, Pride of Femeref
2x Settle the Wreckage
22x Plains

Theme wise I also like the idea of:

Jousting Lance
Forebear's Blade
Shield of the Realm
