  1. DGZ is still here?

    Surprisingly accurate

    Also I'm fairly sure that the current line does not take into account the chance that gronk misses the game. I'm assuming the public will treat Gronk as a probable, but in all honesty I think it's truly like 60:40. Players miss multiple weeks from concussions all the time. It might be smart to take the Eagles before Gronk news comes out because I don't think that line accounts for any uncertainty on his status which definitely exists. He's worth a point on the spread I'd say.

    It looks like the Vikings got hit with a classic letdown spot which is fucking crazy for a conference championship game. Amazing and lucky win at home, followed by a short road favorite against a much stronger defense. Possibly looking ahead to having the Super Bowl back at home. What a flat and embarrassing performance. I think everyone who said the Vikings had a better roster than the Eagles hasn't paid attention to the Eagles at all this season. I thought the Vikings should be favorites because I thought Keenum was an edge over Foles, but Foles played the game of his life. Foles has shown flashes of brilliance before and he might fall into the category of being a streaky QB. I think he can do it again in the Super Bowl. The current line of Pats +5.5 is too high. Philly has a better roster and defense, Pats have a better QB, and it's on a neutral site. The line should be Pats +3 but the public will take the Pats because they are the Pats. I think the line is going to stay at +5.5 because sharps would hammer +6. If it somehow creeps up to +6 I would place a bet on the Eagles. I like the Pats to win the game but that line is ridiculous.

    Not entirely. What you posted made the game competitive but didn't make it a clear Jags victory. Cooks was getting separation consistently which I did not expect. Frankly nobody did. He ran some unbelievable routes, particularly his come backers. Amendola having success in the slot was fairly predictable. This was the weak spot relative to the other spots in the Jags secondary. He can really turn it on when it counts, his problem has always been durability. Gronk had a few chunk yardage plays and seemed to draw double teams / safety shaded over the top. Even if he's not racking up catches that's a win schematically. He was going to make the catch rather easily on the hit he took that left him concussed. Having him on the game for only one half was fortunate for the Jaguars (just as the Titans only won because Kelce got knocked out in the WC game). I think the non-PI PI to cooks on the next play was a bit of a make up call because that Gronk play should have been a 35 yard gain and they only got 15 yards on the penalty. That rule needs to be changed to award the ball at the spot of the foul if it would be greater than the 15 yard penalty. The run game was terrible. Good call. The screen game however was quite effective. The Jags needed fumble luck to make the game as close as it was 2 fumbles went the Jags way (one on offense and one on defense). The Pats took a knee on the final possession while if they needed to, they could have racked up more points. The Pats passed on a 4th and 1 in the first quarter and a 4th and 2 in the 4th quarter because Jacksonville's offensive success was largely limited to two drives in the first 20 minutes. All this made the Jags +7.5 a strong bet and that's why they covered, but Jags money line on the road in NE, having played a very weak schedule of offensive teams and shown high various in defensive success (3rd highest points allowed variance), made that bet a bit silly.

    Giants blow it's been 7 years nobody cares
  6. What if that spouse is incredibly hot and out of your league? Is it worth it then???
  7. It's also interesting that so many players are holding out on maining Airknight Parshath, which is the best answer in the format to Scapegoat.
  8. Both. I think that Dustshoot does a lot of the things Threatening Roar does against OTK but in a different, more aggressive way. I prefer to play Dustshoot and build up a strong board. Flips help me do that too. If Jay had entered the tournament I would have given extra consideration to Threatening Roar, but looking at the list of players I did not expect to see any OTK. I thought there was a chance somebody might get cheeky with Burn, PACMAN, Last Turn, or Empty Jar though, but not Stein or Cat OTK.
  9. Hey guys, In honor of my first win in a "major" Goat Format tournament, I decided to do a post-game commentary series of all my matches, and write up this mini report. I'll explain my deck real quick, then leave the commentary below as the main source of analysis on my matches. Even though it was only an 8-person tournament, I knew it would be fun and extremely competitive. I expected every player to take it seriously and bring what he thought was his best deck to the tournament. So, even though I had recent success with PACMAN in a DGz Live, I really wanted to test my abilities with Goat Control in this new Chaos-heavy DGz meta. I was expecting to see about 2:1 Chaos Control decks to Goat Control decks, and maybe some anti-meta decks sprinkled in. I think this prediction was about correct. Here's my deck list: There's some explanation of my list in the videos if you'd like to skip reading this, but I think some people would appreciate the extra details. I'm playing the typical Goat Control list that was developed with Team Detox, but it really dates back to the days when KP won the 2014 Goat Format War League with a very similar list, which then became the "Standard" goat list that everybody net decked. The only difference in the main deck is that we've replaced 2 copies of Exarion Universe with 1 D.D. Warrior Lady and 1 Asura Priest, a couple solid level 4 beaters that help to fill the roles that Exarion Universe played in the original deck. The side deck was meant to cover Burn, OTK, and other Alt-Win stuff. I specifically tweaked it for the metagame I was expecting to face, however. That's why I sided 2 copies of Dark Mimic LV1 and a third Book of Moon. When I played against Angel Chaos Control, I would take out D.D. Warrior Lady, a card I consider a liability in that matchup, as well as 2 Dust Tornado, which are not as useful as they are in the Goat Control mirror, where I can save them to stop Call of the Haunted and Premature Burial (Chaos Control does not play either of those cards). Dark Mimic is strong against the Chaos Control deck, as it never loses value to Chaos Sorcerer, and it can soak up attacks from Shining Angels and D.D. Warrior Lady. Importantly, now that I've gotten rid of D.D. Warrior Lady and added a couple more flip effects, none of my monsters will be left in face-up position without having already given me value (except Sangan which I will be setting more frequently instead). I ended up setting monsters a lot and playing more passively to avoid Chaos Sorcerer, which worked out quite well. This change also bumps my deck up to 17 monsters, which I feel gives me a slightly stronger early game that helps me respond to early Shining Angels from my opponent. Finally, I am bringing in the 3rd Book of Moon which does a few things: (1) provides extra synergy with a weak flip effect monster like Dark Mimic LV1, (2) functionally helps to replicate the ability of the Dust Tornadoes I sided out to block Snatch Steal, and (3) blocks the Angel Chaos Control player's Thousand-Eyes Restrict more effectively than they can block mine, since a Book on their Thousand-Eyes will never result in them tributing it for Airknight (since they choose not to play Airknight, while I still do). In hindsight, my side deck was not very good against Aggro decks like Chaos Recruiter, which I struggled against in the Finals. I would have liked to have found space for a third Sakuretsu Armor and 2 Legendary Jujitsu Master for that matchup. I took these cards out at the last minute for 2 Mobius the Frost Monarch and the third Book of Moon. I think it was worth it for the Book of Moon, but I'm skeptical about the Mobius. I'm also skeptical about my decision to include Seven Tools of the Bandit. I was happy at the end of the day to include Trap Dustshoot however. It remains one of my favorite side deck cards. Finally, thanks to MMF for hosting the tournament. Thanks to The Seraphim (the team I'm on currently) for the support and advice on my deck and how to play. Thanks to the commentators in Voice Chat who joined MMF's streams, the coverage you guys did was fantastic. And finally, thanks to my opponents for being positive human beings and good sports. You guys made the tournament a great experience. 10/10 would play again. Round 1 vs Markus (Chaos Angel Control) - Win Round 2 vs Tango (Chaos Angel(?) Control) - Win Round 3 vs Lucas (Chaos Angel Control) - Win Round 4 vs Loli (Chaos Recruiter) - Loss Round 5 vs Loli (Chaos Recruiter) - Win

    The Dion Lewis + Gronk cannot be stopped. The Jags are equipped to stop an offense that relies heavily on its exterior WRs, not these guys. Sure the pass rush is world class, but a pass rush matters less when you're throwing shorter passes.

    And BTW you should have assumed I was too busy to post even though you saw me reading the thread.

    It wasn't your list of notes or lack of activity. What made you scum to me was (1) you listed me as 'likely VT', (2) your reads were contradictory and looked like hedging, (3) you didn't vote anyone, (4) you didn't ask anyone questions. Come on dude. This is "scrub mentality", i.e. blaming your personal short comings in a game on the play of others. In case you didn't realize it the town wasn't on your team.
