    1. Great to hear that! We are currently loving this deck, and have been testing it daily on MTGO. It seems to have all the tools you need to win a wide variety of matchups. Make sure you start with the most updated list that we posted on the last Brief Brainstorm. Best of luck to you, and thanks for giving the deck a shot!


      1. I went 2-1 at a small local tournament with almost this exact list. Only change I had to make was that I had a Pithing Needle in the side instead of the second Toxic Deluge. Going 1-2 against Infect, 2-0 against Aggro Loam and 2-0 against Elves. The games I lost against infect were very much winnable, I just misplayed.

        Overall the deck felt really solid. It felt like it would have game against all decks.
