Hey man, been a while, nice to see you again
You got the TL;DR of the past year of the deck's life - Storm-Kiln Artist
and Goldspan Dragon
got printed, and the build is the strongest it's ever been. The only time I've spent a Recruiter on something that wasn't Dorf was when I already had one of the two new guys available already.
is incredibly overrated. It's good if it comes out early and people are unwilling to sacrifice their T2-3'ish setup tempo, but by ~T5 this should net you no cards against tables with any amount of responsibility. Feather in particular draws well enough to not need this.
Yeah, the heroic swarmers are some of the worse cards in the deck at this point, but they still gum and board presence tends to help with not dying. But they're near the chopping block for when more good stuff comes out.
I've personally found Titan's Strength
perfectly fine, and have Samut's Sprint
earmarked as a putative filler card if at any point I make any transformative changes to the deck. Scrying is seriously a perfectly good form of dig while looking for stuff, most of the time I bottom stuff anyway as I'm looking for very particular pieces.
I dislike colourless mana in the deck, and the only colourless sources I run yield infinite hand size or are Sol Ring
s. I don't pack much grave hate as a personal choice - graveyard decks tend to be very all-eggs-one-basket from my experience, and a well placed graveyard exile really hurts them. Which makes the game unfun for them. So I'll just do my own thing instead
Nice to see you on the Mox plan too now
given the draw happiness, Feather quickly recoups the early game investment, and if drawn late they're outright effortless to sequence.
Sword of the Animist
is already too slow, so Sword of Hearth and Home
all the more so. Yeah, the blink is not too shabby, but I guess this is more for the ETB builds.
