Re: Oracle's Shift

3x Flusterstorm
2x Force of Negation
3x Surgical Extraction
3x Pithing Needle
1x Jace, the Mind Sculptor
3x Back to Basics

Haven't actually tried the side out but that seems like a reasonable start?

Re: Oracle's Shift

turn 4 feels like an acceptable speed. Does this deck have god draws that combo faster than turn 4? I'm simply curious. talking about speed of combo deck, it has a legacy "feel" to it. I miss this kind of talk. It has been years ago. ____________ on duals, not really the original duals.. perhaps ha...

Re: Oracle's Shift

sorry for late reply. Interesting. I see now... the oracle itself is a win con. Back up win cons in Jace and Lab man provide redundancy. :) not really much to suggest, as you have things in order already. can I know the usual goldfish turn of this strategy? Uhh, cantrip a couple of times, maybe dro...

Re: Oracle's Shift

Aaand I've just been informed that Dig Through Time is banned in Legacy. Might go full combo and swap that for Lotus Petals, and drop down to 2 Narsets to accommodate a playset.

Re: Oracle's Shift

since even the casual version of this deck can beat High Tide. That alone makes it promising. I've been out of legacy for awhile. Can I know the win con of this deck? And how it get's there. Would be able to give some suggestions once I know. So, the primary win condition of the deck is as the name...

Oracle shift. First time I heard of this legacy deck. Looks like it's a combo. How does it play?
It's a fun little thing I came up with and threw together when Thassa's Oracle was spoiled. I'll respond to you in the thread about the deck!

Re: BR Blightning Tribal - Battle Box Part 2

I've made a change! I have replaced Skull Rend with Blazing Specter . Reason: Skull Rend is a more expensive, weaker Blightning when in single player, which is how 99.99% of my Casual-60 games go. For the most part, by the time I can cast Skull Rend, I'd rather have more damage on hand, or a repeata...

Re: Your last legacy games

I played Oracle's Shift against High Tide tonight. High Tide got wreeecked.

I was playing my more casual version as I'm still slowly upgrading it, but my friend wanted an arms race, so he's getting an arms race. And I'm winning.

Updates: 2x Echo of Eons → 2x Dig Through Time 2x Island → 2x Prismatic Vista 1x Omen of the Sea → 1x Jace, Wielder of Mysteries The Echoes never worked, ever. There was no way to discard them and I never had enough mana to hardcast them. Dig Through Time seems like a good choice because of Delve an...

Re: UG Stompy - Battle Box Part 1

I almost never have mana issues with this deck, and I've played it a number of times versus both the other Battle Box deck and a number of a couple of friends' decks. On occasion, I'll get color screwed (rare, but happens once every 8 or 10 games), but there's rarely ever an issue with mana. What so...

Re: BR Blightning Tribal - Battle Box Part 2

if this is meant to be played with the ug stompy in the other thread. I would say it's fine already. With just a slight advantage to the ug, because Uro > Kroxa, and the ug can also bury this deck in card advantage by casting unexpected results every turn. Surprisingly, I think this deck is the bet...

Re: UG Stompy - Battle Box Part 1

Yeah, we pretty much only play decks that are around similar power levels. I have some decks that are weaker than these, and some that might be stronger - it's a toss-up, and we adjust accordingly.

UG Stompy - Battle Box Part 1

So, I used to have what I called a Battle Box. What this was was 2 piles of 120 cards, each. One pile was BR, one pile was GU. Each pile had a core of cards that I recommended using in each deck, and 4-5 different archetypes (Elemental aggro, Biovisionary clones, etc.) from it that you could build. ...

Re: State of Legacy Thread

I have a friend who is using Yorion Food Chain to good results. It's kind of marvelous to watch.

I think Oko's a problem for fair decks, but not so much for combo.
