I have been a strong advocate for Discard in the main since the release of T3feri, however Veil of Summer has been showing up a lot more lately and that card is a lot worse for us when when your deck is filled with Discard, Pushes, Lochs, Cryptics and other counters. Depending on the share of your meta that has green in it, it may not be worthwhile. For me, at this time I am moving away from Discard.aklepatzky wrote: ↑3 months agoDecklist

Approximate Total Cost:
Went 3-1 today at my LGS with this list. Beat Jund (2-1) Mono g Tron (2-1) Jund (2-1) and lost to a weird midrange sultai list with Oko, Queller, T3feri, BoP, hierarch, leak among its cards..
-Mana base feels really solid. Not missing FoR and was able to fetch for an untapped Mystic Sanctuary most of the times I wanted to.
-I will go down to 24 lands trimming a Drowned Catacomb once I get my second copy of Supreme Veredict, I think its necessary to assure creature heavy mus and specially against etron.
-Lyra stole 2 games against Jund by herself tonight. Second time playing her in the side. First time was on friday where she instantly won me a game against boros burn.
-Unsure if I want a heavy discard package in the main along with 2 T3feri since the combination seems awesome. Theres a friend at my LGS who also has a esper control deck though he almost always plays Jund and hes running 4-5 discard spells main and trimmed 1 push 1 Jace 1 opt 1 charm from my list to fit them. Thoughts?
-Drown felt AMAZING when I played straight UB control/Faeries, but now that I'm on Esper Control 2 Drown has felt like the sweet spot. Never felt like I wanted more.
The most played decks at my LGS are (virtually in order) Jund, (E)Tron, Valakut, Urza and Control. With that in mind:
-I'm unsure if I want another copy of Stony in the side. Its such a high impact card that having 2 copies feels better than a single one that you arent that likely to draw.
-Thoughts on adding Gideon, Ally Zendikar/Plague Engineer ?
Any general thoughts about my list are welcome.
You should be on at least one Plague Engineer, the card does a lot right now against Urza and tribal decks like Humans and Merfolk as well as being relevant against decks that rely on Snapcasters, Coatls or small creatures like Infect and Boggles.
