1  MagicPlayer Highlander / General Discussion / Strategy with Academy versus Collector Ouphe on: 27-11-2019, 07:48:30 PM
How do we defeat Collector Ouphe (, Stony Silence, Null Rod or even Back to Basics)?

The cards I came up with sofar are not exactly great:
Spine of Ish Sah
Chain of Vapor, Cyclonic Rift, Capsize, etc.
Clutch of the Undercity
Ugin, the Ineffable and other Planeswalkers, which I dont want to play

Ghirapur Aether Grid is what I'm going to try, but I would really like an artifact, obviously.

Hopefully you guys can give me some feedback, thank you!

Awesome, thanks for getting us started!!

I'd like to play, no matter what format we end up on.

Maybe we can use Discord for discussing details.

I cant look at the updated version, since the download-links dont work for me.

Not sure why Survival of the Fittest is in the deck, cause its banned.

From the top of my head, here are some quick suggestions.

Against aggro, you can try to gum up the board and have _some_ form of lifegain:
Wall of Blossoms
Kitchen Finks
Spike Feeder
Obstinate Baloth
Wall of Mulch
Carven Caryatid
Sylvan Caryatid

More efficient removal also helps:
Fatal Push
Ghastly Demise
Abrupt Decay
Assassin's Trophy
Collective Brutality
Maelstrom Pulse

I wouldnt leave home without:
Inquisition of Kozilek
Hymn to Tourach
Liliana of the Veil

Some other cards I would consider to add:
Nihil Spellbomb
Hissing Quagmire
Yavimaya Elder
Reclamation Sage
Llanowar Elves, etc.
Zombie Infestation
Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth
Pulse of Murasa
Scavenging Ooze
Deathrite Shaman
more Fetchlands
Tireless Tracker
Sylvan Scrying

Cards I would consider to cut:
Skyshroud Poacher
Withered Wrech
Yavimaya Granger
Viridian Shaman
Survival of the Fittest
Squee, Goblin Nabob
Krovikan Horror
Stinkweed Imp
Golgari Grave Troll
Nantuko Vigilante
Ink-Eyes, Sertvant of Oni
Thrashing Wumpus
Nezumi Graverobber

These lists could go on and on.

Bottom line: without Survival - either because its banned or you simply dont draw it often enough - your situational cards will make it difficult for you. I would try to play more all-around good cards and if your recursion picks up, thats a nice bonus and gives you reach. Also, max-out on good disruption.

much appreciated, thank you! : )

Thanks, i guess. Any chance for a single decklist from each tourney?

I would offer (again) to type it into Cockatrice, if at least the winner would be obliged to simply make a picture of his deck.

I'm in, on whatever the structure will be.

Also, I would like to see _some_ kind of prize/benefit for the winner each time. For example byes or free entries for the league, or possibly an invitational tournament.

Additionally, I'm still interested in something like Vintage Super Leage for our format.

Nicely done, DarkLight!

It helped me greatly to rework my own spreadsheet, thanks! : )

15  MagicPlayer Highlander / Banned List & Rules / Re: Changing the effect of our watchlist, to make it more meaningful? on: 15-07-2018, 12:41:01 PM
In my opinion, the benefit for players isnt big enough to justify complicating things. All the cards are "restricted" as 1-ofs in the first place anyway.

As a sidenote, I feel like the less additional bannings, the better. People want to play with the cards they love. Ideally, the frequency with which the bannedlist changes, should drop exponentionally. As I understand it, continuous changes with a format as well developed as this, is a sign that people don't know what they are doing.

Now as I look at the actual watchlist right now, cards like Back to Basics and Blood Moon should never be considered for a ban (unless we want to eradicate 1, 2, or even 3 color decks).

For me personally, none of the cards on the current watchlist make much sense to ban. Entomb is a very special card, but I'm not aware of it dominating anything. Oath of Druids also doesnt dominate anything and is seriously held in check by B2B et cetera. As is Academy. Tutoring and carddraw is part of the game. TNN doesnt "do" anything in a bunch of matchups (easy Jitte, Skullclamp unban). Please only ban based on mid-longterm tournamentresults.

Another idea I guess this is a good spot to throw out there: I'd like to see a slightly extended watchlist and each card with a rating on how likely it will get banned or unbanned, respectively. Perhaps votecounts.
