The humans list is really cool. Not sure if Ferrous will displace traditional humans or not, but honestly if all removal continues to trend multi-colour I could see it.


Lenik1998

It has been putting up results here and there lately. I still don't see it as replacing the traditional list but it has potential for sure!


CKF

Seems like he’d give you way better ability to turn the corner in games that grind longer, especially since you can vial him in EOT and get two or three bonus 4/4s next turn.


MadMonsterSlayer

This is a good point. Maybe he could work in the sideboard of a more traditional list and come and for those grindier matchups? I'll give it a try. I'm not sold on him main board, but I'm no pro.


CKF

I like the idea of two of him in the 75. He seems to be a lot of value for humans. My educated guess would be that he’s either good enough to warrant being played main deck or he isn’t good enough for the 75.


Quadsheep1

Anyone know what matchups the SB [[Angler Turtle]] in the Mardu Reanimator list is for?


Mp3chaos

Originally elementals. Seems cuttable though.


awon11

I haven’t a clue lol

Interesting version of Hammertime up near the top there. Forgoing Lurrus in favour of a Nettlecyst and Sword of Fire and Ice in the maindeck. Honestly, I’m glad to see a list like that 5-0. It gives me hope that the deck would survive in a world where Lurrus is banned.


Dothackver2

i think thats also a concession to tasha's, lurrus hammertime has a total cmc of like 23-24 so if they draw 2 spells in the opening 7 with a cmc they die to tasha's


calmingRespirator

I’m not sure if that’s really a good reason. The non Lurrus Hammertime deck has a total cmc of 41. For comparison, the Lurrus Hammertime deck has a total cmc of 33. I would be surprised if that extra 8 cmc really does much against Tashas. The concession to mill I would guess is the Emrakul in the sideboard of the non-Lurrus version.


Dothackver2

if you can lose the game on turn 3, just by naturally drawing a couple cards like you normally should that can be a big problem, especially since mill is pretty common to fight against now and being mono white, the only actual card i can think of they could play would be mana tithe, since leyline doesnt work as it does not target


TimeWalk

Interesting mardu boom bust list running 4x [[urza's saga]] and a planeswalker package of 3x [[karn, scion of urza]] and 2x [liliana of the veil]]. Never seen something like that before. All in on karnstructs I guess

Susp

Only 50+ decks instead of the usual 70+? Is that cause meta settling down or...?


Phelps-san

Number of lists spiked hard with MH2 since people had a lot of things to brew, but has been consistently trending down since then. Here's a [chart](https://imgur.com/JwYruW0). It's probably the meta settling down, we're now getting close to pre-MH2 levels again so hopefully it starts stabilizing instead of dropping further.


soontobeDVM2022

As per usual suck my butt lurrus


Predicted

Ok so how many cards am i away from getting listed with my list compared to the other yawg list? https://www.mtggoldfish.com/deck/4261685 5-0d with this on wednesday.


Son-of-Apollo

I think it’s a minimum of a 15 (maybe 20?) different cards to get listed. What some people have done in the past is played slightly different mana bases (mix of normal and snow-covered basics, diversity of fetchlands, etc) to try to get their lists into the dump.


RubyCrustedGunt

Has anyone been trying miracles at all? TPSJendrek was the go to but he seems to have switched to Grixis and I'm jonesing for a list


Masonmind

That orzhov tormod list is sick


Son-of-Apollo

And once again, nazart shows that sometimes all you have to do to 5-0 is to be incredibly experienced with a deck!
