Thoughts

Nothing particularly unique this week, but there are some interesting trends.

Sleight of Hand is so hot right now. MaxMagicer's results have been well, and people have been following suit in playing Sleight of Hand. Getting around draw restriction hate is good, and unlike Portent which only bests Narest and Leovold types, Sleight works versus Hullbreacher and gives you the card now. We of course trade this for digging a bit deeper or getting to shuffle.
Main Duress is also picking up steam, probably due to the number of Tinker decks right now. There's a lot of Tinker decks right now.


No one can really agree on what creatures to run other than Opposition Agent, or if we even need them. I did suffer a loss to discoverN because of Tasigur beating the living hell out of me. I love when SingPanMan is playing Hydroblast. It feels good and clean in the Pyroblast world in which we live in. Well, except when Mono Blue Tinker decks start coming up. BUt we need to fight on every axis we can.
