Pretty huge bans tbh. It'll be interesting to see how it affects the format.

I want to build a Primeval Titan deck for this format, I just don't know what it will be yet lol. I already know several different bases I want to try out, and that is only with me knowing a fairly small portion of the card pool available. Nacatal being banned makes me slightly more excited about this, too, since the fast zoo decks will probably be a hard matchup.

Yeah it's quite expensive. I just manned up and invested in a modern deck because grinding standard+modern dailies gets you qps so much faster.

i q'd with 2 byes fairly easily by doing that.

I played in a few dailies at the beginning of the month and a few others that past few days to que. I don't have the excess $ to spend on it. I keep reinvesting my prize support into Building up standard sets. Excess money helps irl. :P

i need like 80$ of cards to complete an isochron delver deck (already own vendilions,snappies etc only need 4 fetches and some lands)

what do you guys think about the deck? i really like it,and from testing it has a 40/60 matchup un jund (still hard to beat,cos it has maestrom pulses,kitchen finks,hand distruption etc etc),which is the meta.dek right now

Cawblade is sadly quite good right now. Worst matchup is Tron and thats not seeing the biggest amount of play. It also has a good affinity and a pretty good jund matchup

it's a little too slow against affinity/jund

Jund is one of it's better matchups. Affinity however, requires some luck.

It seems like the the format is still wide open and new decks are popping up at literally every event.

The main shifts that have occurred in the format is the combo decks almost completely falling out, and Aggro, Mid Range, and Aggro/Control proving to be the most successful.

The beauty of the format is that all the broken decks are neutralized by the existence of plenty of hate cards.
