I'm still gravitating to trying to make Historic Humans happen. Hoping there's a shell that features Meddling Mage, Thalia, and Kitesail Freebooter that disrupts just enough to sneak in 20 damage just across the finish line.

Mengucciís build with the Ooze companion is great.

I love how some people think cards work better against Uro than they actually do. I played someone today who had maindeck Hushbringer, so they played it turn two and the following turn I had a 6/6 against their 1/2 flier and a Hunted Witness.

Hushbringer is still worth using at the moment but you have to have a plan for Uro and Kroxa. The deck I've got that uses it has Snapdax, Haemophage, Dirge Bat etc which combine to allow pretty easy takesdown of big things, and a tonne of lifegain to make back the early deficit.

It's not perfect but I'll take the occasional oops against relatively rare things to gently caress with Gyruda, Yorion, and Agent.

Anyone who plays an aggro deck in this format and succeeds has my respect. I dinked around with Mardu humans during my lunch break and found myself bouncing off of Yorion and Field decks non-stop. I ended up losing like 9 percentage points. Nexus or nuthiní for now on.

why would anyone play historic ranked? it seems like a cesspit of the least fun bullshit ever. I didn't like playing nexus or yorion in standard and they seem to have gotten worse to play and play against. I'll just stick with unranked with that Honden Dance of the Manse deck because 1 win with that is worth 100 losses because I just made someone lose against shrine tribal

Didn't that Kethis deck do well against nexus for a bit in standard? I wonder if that's still good at all if I feel like punishing people by playing the deck with the longest possible otk

Itís the best constructed format right now because you can brew all sorts of bullshit and still win with it on ranked. If you are losing to something over and over brew a new deck, itís wide open

Idk, but please donít guillotine me for liking it

I think I like this standard more than most people, but the decks do all feel kind of samey and itís kind of like Modern where a lot of the time you just sort of pass the turn and hope you donít just instantly lose.

Historic has a lot of the same problems (although, Iíve yet to play against a Lurrus deck) but I like playing with the bigger card pool and it feels like a pretty broad variety of strategies are viable. Itís also fun seeing all the psycho HA poo poo like Ulamog and Unburial Rites and seeing how people integrate them into the Arena card pool to make functional decks.

I guess more broadly, I have the most fun playing MTG when Iím playing a powerful deck and thereís something, even if itís as inconsequential as rank or store credit, on the line. Historic is more fun than Standard for me, so thatís why I play it.

Also, Time is right, it might just be the best format right now. I donít play Legacy or Vintage, but Modern is completely hosed and Standard obviously has a ton of issues. Historic stands alone as the only good format left!

It might be! I havenít played it or against it on the ladder, though. I think the problem is you ideally want to win the turn you resolve Obosh, so you donít get to milk max value out of the one sided Pyroclasm so idk how good Chainwhirler is there, but I guess a 6/3 first striker is pretty good too so idk. Give it a shot! Thereís no league or tournament collation on Top8 or goldfish so the format is wide open!

I kinda think you need more than a day of tinkering to declare "best format" but the brewing phase is the best part of any format, pardoning the post-modern horizons brewing phase of modern.

I see past the sham that is society, and I'm into some incredibly fucked up shit.

I hosed around in the play queue today practicing mono w lurrus auras. The deck performed a lot better than I expected for a budget build, which is great because I love putting Auras on creatures and turning them sideways (or not, if they're vigilant).

My winstreak was broken by an absolute abomination: Jeskai Fires/Spells with land destruction. I got the motherfucker to 1 before he dropped Teferi, bounced my last creature, and then God Pharaoh Statue, and suddenly I couldn't play any spells. I was in utter awe. I imagine that deck would play quite well against other fires and rec decks. If I keep seeing it though I'm not touching standard until Fires is banned
