Thoughts

We have a 53-Main, 4-Sideboard core this week. Lots of this is due to Clone9 and ecobaronen.

Once again ecobaronen went without Sideboard cards for Bazaar. Neither did Clone9, although Lavinia, Azorius Renegade does mess with Dredge and Hollowvine. Of course, she does not stop a Vengevine from coming back. This is some interesting testing, at least. If Doomsday is not getting new cards in sets we'll have to at least try once in a while to see if any color splashes get us anywhere. Monastery Mentor is basically a "free" wincon if we're splashing White. Trading one sideboard slot for a card that works with the majority of the deck does not hurt, and will probably snag some free wins. Serenity is also a nice choice to deal with all the Construct tokens being made as well as any nonsense Shops throws out.

I'm unsure how I feel about sixmp's choice of Murktide Regent, but since Pyroblast seems to be at a recent low, its big weakness was likely not much of a problem. As far as alternate wincons go, Murktide slides into the standard shell fairly well.
