Thoughts

Main Core: 56 cards Side Core: 11 cards

Both of discoverN's lists are the same, Vertyx_ and laughingrock have the same list except for an Opposition Agent instead of one Murktide Regent for laughingrock in the side, and I'm basically playing discoverN's last list except I have an Agent and my beloved Watery Grave. Very samey.

Except look at that Tundra and Monastery Mentor in discoverN's side. I'll be honest, I'm not entirely sure where it would come in. Having an alternate win condition against most non-combo decks could be good. But since practically every deck right now is a combo deck (Tinker/Key at the least), or blazingly fast with creatures (Bazaar and Shops), I'm unsure where I'd side this in. But I do like it.

Both Breach and Aggro Shops are on the rise. I felt like Hurkyl's Recall could have helped me a few times this weekend. Then again, I played against Shops four times. So take that with a grain of Urza's Salt.
