Thoughts

Main Core: 53 cards Side Core: 10 cards


Daze numbers are up this week. Several players seem to be on a 2-1 in favor of either it or Duress. SingPanMan tried out a copy of Edge of Autumn, which while never can be cast, could be a nice cycler when life is low or against a field of many Wasteland decks.


Everyone who played 2 Daze had a Duress in the side. I find it curious that SingPanMan opted not to play Mindbreak Trap, instead the Force of Negation and two copies of Hydroblast are in the side.
XShockWaveX seems to have put a Flusterstorm in the side in exchange for a main copy of Chain of Vapor, which I think is a decent plan when Shops and other Big Mana decks are in abundance.
