Got my first 7-0 in Zendikar Quick Draft just as the event was closing. Played super fast and intuitively the last few games because I was worried it would not allow me to continue racking up wins once the even elapsed (still not sure if this is really the case?). Luckily managed to go undefeated and began my last game with like 4 mins left. It was intense. Drafted a killer BW cleric deck with double gold borders and three (3) Marauding Blight Priests. Think I had like 10 Clerics total. Such a nuts archetype when everything aligns, as you just stick clerics to the board and Swarm/Binding all their stuff, locking them into turn after turn of life loss and chip damage. I hated playing against it so I decided to draft one of my own woooooo.

p1p3 Rockslide probably has an edge over eruption in a dedicated wizards UR deck, but roil eruption is good in literally any red deck so it would be the pick here. Akoum warrior would also probably be the pick over sorceror since it will also slot into any red deck.
p1p5 if you're going r/w cinderclasm doesn't play well with your deck and expedition champion does
p1p6 relic amulet is great in wizards if you've got that deck coming together, but goma fada vanguard is one of the best aggro uncommons and a huge signal that red warriors is the lane that you should be in and it was a mistake to pass it
p1p9 molten blast is a mana or two too expensive for what it does and rarely makes the cut in a finished deck when the draft goes well. night runner and scorch rider are both playable and better picks here.

Once you found your lane you did well, I'd have drafted another vanguard over zagras without any fixing.

disagreed on the rockslide, its an insanely good card even if you dont go full r/u wizards and its early enough in the draft that im willing to speculate on it

Constructed mythic is mostly getting reps in on the ranked ladder. You can netdeck any tier 1 list and grind up even with mediocre win rates. Limited mythic is generally harder to get. You can still grind it to some extent by saving up a lot of gold or bulk buying gems for entry but it's much less consistent than jamming constructed with an optimized deck that does most of the work for you. The irony being that while hitting mythic in limted is harder the tournaments you qualify for are in constructed so if you want to compete it's probably better to just grind ladder to learn the meta and how to pilot your deck

I usually only do quick draft, and I don't often get matched up against top-ranked mythic players (say, top 200). But when I do, their decks always seem bonkers, with multiple on-theme rares and generally super-consistent high power level.

I'm sure they're better drafters and know the bots better and what not.. but does the ranking system do anything (other than "keep charging entry fees") to prevent people from just dropping out of drafts until they get a bonkers deck?

Historic Colorless is great. I've been playing it for the last few days. It's bad in standard due to the surprisingly low mana rock count.

I saw a colorless deck on the ladder that used Ozolith to fire counters around starting with Stonecoil Serpent. Ideally it wants to move those counters to Gingerbrute with a Shadowspear so it's a huge lifelink guy who's nigh unblockable. Seems bad against any removal that isn't Heartless Act but it beat me the one time I saw it so...

There's more than enough colourless untapped lands to make a 24-land deck without using basics or anything that comes in tapped, though?
Bonder's Enclave, Animal Sanctuary, Radiant Fountain, Crawling Barrens, Field of Ruin, Labyrinth of Skophos, Throne of Makindi is 6x4 untapped colourless sources.

You probably wanna include at least a few basics though, in case someone breaks your land and you need to hunt for one.

This is the thing I really want to try but don't even close to have the wildcards for:

Deck
3 Palladium Myr (M21) 234
4 Ugin, the Spirit Dragon (M21) 1
4 Stonecoil Serpent (ELD) 235
4 Throne of Makindi (ZNR) 265

4 Myriad Construct (ZNR) 246
3 Forsaken Monument (ZNR) 244
4 Lithoform Engine (ZNR) 245
4 Labyrinth of Skophos (THB) 243

One of the youtubers I watch played something like it early in ZNR, and Forsaken Monument can really go off if left unchecked. It's never gonna be top tier in Standard though I don't think.

I'm pretty sure they had Emry and a couple of the blue Artifacts, too.

Ahh yeah thats true, I forgot about a couple of those lands. I'm a Lithoform Engine and Skyclave Relic away from the standard list above, I can almost give that a try. Maybe subbing in 2 Solemns and a couple basics for the Field of Ruins.

edit: Also of note as I've been trying these out for anyone wanting to craft these colorless decks, they're annoying af to play with because of the autotapper. It treats all your utility lands as equals, so you have to manually tap all the time to keep up your Barrens, Arch, Labyrinth or what have you.

It could use a lot of tweaking, this is a combination of reanimation and enchantments but I've had reasonably good luck against rogues in BO1 (haven't tried it in BO3):

quote:

4 Hateful Eidolon (THB) 101
3 Lurrus of the Dream-Den (IKO) 226
4 Dead Weight (IKO) 83
4 Mire's Grasp (THB) 106
4 Aphemia, the Cacophony (THB) 84
4 Mogis's Favor (THB) 107
2 Demonic Embrace (M21) 95
4 Archfiend's Vessel (M21) 88
4 Murderous Rider (ELD) 97
2 Rankle, Master of Pranks (ELD) 101
2 Call of the Death-Dweller (IKO) 78
23 Swamp (ANB) 116

I haven't really changed the list up much, off the top of my head you could probably shave a land or two (and swap out a couple swamps for Locthwaines). You could lose Murderous Rider and Rankle if you wanted to use Lurrus as a companion - I did try that briefly, but found that it was less flexible, you either had a perfect hand or you were DOA. Tymaret Calls the Dead would be another option to toss in if you're having more luck going wide and certainly worth SBing. For me, the wincon has usually been Demonic Embrace, reanimating Vessel, or going wide with Aphemia.

Try it, let me know if you find some ways to improve it, I've just been lazy lately.

4 Baloth Packhunter (ANB) 90
4 Stonecoil Serpent (ELD) 235

1 Kogla, the Titan Ape (IKO) 162
1 Azusa, Lost but Seeking (M21) 173
1 The Great Henge (ELD) 161

This deck I built mostly based off of a YouTubers upgraded mono green. It says my overall mana cost is 3.5, should I add another land or two or am I okay with 22 Forest 2 Castle Garenbrig, Great Henge and Cultivate? My mana does seem a bit low sometimes and feels a bit top heavy on the big creatures.

I'm really bad though so any suggestions that standout please feel free!

I had been posting this on the discord server, but figured I should post it here, too. I am havin a ton of fun with a deck I designed myself--never gotten this high of a ranking before.

Current rank:

And, for anyone curious, deck is here



Lynchpin of the deck is Teferi's Ageless Insight, wincons are that, Ominous Seas and either Fevered Inventory (2/3 in graveuard), or Valakut for drawing anywhere from 6-20 cards at a time. Or Teferi Insight/Planeswalker and either multiple Improbable Alliance or Irencrag Pyromancer

Alliance and Pyromancer are super good with all this draw--and with Insight (or the teferi planeswalker--with both you don't even need to spend any many/play any cards to do it) are remarkably easy to activate on both your turn and the opponents turn, building an army quick (or getting a ton of throwaway blockers) and dealing a ton of damage.

What do y'all think?

I've been playing this deck for a few days and I love it, it's fun and powerful. I think I found a useful improvement for the deck - I replaced Frantic Inventory with Opt, which is much better in the early game. I also removed a Blitz to put in a second Midnight Clock, since I'm encountering a lot of mill decks, and replaced the Glasspool Mimics with two more Valakut Awakenings since they're more often live. After putting in the Opts, I easily went from Plat 3 to Diamond.

I've never felt its lack, but have often gone "I wish I had a bear about now" against aggro. The deck is incredible once it gets going - especially when you get Teferi's Card Draw down - but it's slow to start. I've also replaced the triome with the WRU one because it makes opponents start to play around Zenith Flare if you've got a few cycling cards in the gy.
