Thoughts

I'm a bit honored that someone seemingly took my top 8 list from two weeks ago and got a 5-0 league with it. Like I said last week, Thing in the Ice was fairly impressive.


Nothing unique in the mains this week other than the Lotus Petal in sixmp's list. Speed kills, as they say, though.


SingPanMan seems to be testing out cards, as this week there is a Dress Down and Pact of Negation in their side. My experience with Dress Down was that it was okay, but I'm the guy currently high on Thing in the Ice. sixmp's choice of Engineered Explosives is interesting as it can deal with Urza's Saga Constructs, as well as Moxen, and just about anything as long as we have the mana. I suppose Black Lotus can help us do a desperation casting of it X equals three, but we're probably not in a good situation if we are doing that. But I digress. The only other thing that sticks out is Murktide Regent being used by sixmp. It's a decent beater and casting Doomsday would possibly also make it bigger, which is always fun.
