A Diversion

Noah asked me if I wanted to play in the Legacy part of the StarCity Games Open series, late this month.

Why not?

So I started to tinker with my New World Disorder deck (fun fact, I wrote about it twice and didn't seem to miss a beat there so...I think we can extrapolate something about me there). There were other decks but they would've taken a whole lot more reworking and I wasn't really interested in playing a Sneak & Show variant so why not play something I want to? Just with black.
2 Fangren Firstborn
3 Eternal Witness
3 Fyndhorn Elves
4 Deathrite Shaman
2 Woodfall Primus
3 Rofellos, Llanowar Emissary
1 Hornet Queen
1 Craterhoof Behemoth
1 Primeval Titan
3 Great Sable Stag

2 Garruk Wildspeaker

4 Natural Order
4 Hymn to Tourach
1 Duress

4 Tangle Wire

4 Wasteland
1 Forest
1 Wamp
4 Bayou
4 Overgrown Tomb
4 Verdant Catacomb
2 Khalni Garden
1 Bojuka Bog
2 Gaea's Cradle

The Sideboard:
3 Pernicious Deed
3 Krosian Grip
2 Pithing Needle
2 Choke
4 Diabolic Edict
1 Thragtusk

The two big decks at the last SCG Legacy event were BUG/RUG Delver and Death & Taxes (white weenie). They took up 8 of the top 10 slots, with Sneak and Show and Belcher making up the other two.

So the hope is to stack against blue (a bit) by adding in uncounterable spells/pro blue stuff, while using the Sideboard for Pernicious Deed to sweep away hordes, if needed. Diabolic Edict...maybe isn't necessary for the Sneak & Show matchups, which is the only ones I can think of it being there for. Perhaps they should become 3 Duress and add in another Thragtusk, which is a beating against weenie decks.

The Krosian Grip is good against Blood Moon (which I expect to see) Sneak Attack and Aether Vial. Choke is because Blue Decks Suck, but sometimes I think Skylasher and Witchstalker might be interesting choices because one blocks Delver bugs and the other cannot be targeted by White Weenie's removal.

But we shall see. This is what I'm going to run for now and I'll have to hope for the best.
