Thoughts

Main Core: 56 cards Side Core: 9 cards


Daze is back in big numbers. Counterspells overall are up, and Duress is beginning to dwindle down again. It's safe to say discoverN is satisfied with Tainted Indulgence's performance, and from my own testing I'd have to agree. The card is good.


Sideboards are fairly stable as well. discoverN slotted in a Hullbreacher in place of the second Murktide Regent that was there last week. My guess is it's for Bazaar decks with added utility against most Blue decks. I do remember talking to SingPanMan when he tested it and the results were lukewarm. Having another way to fight Bazaar decks that don't rely on the graveyard as much is necessary, but I think as long as Doomsday players are stuck in Blue, Black and Colorless options, we don't have access to all the best tools.
