Posted By: frogger42Land Grant?? Pretty hot, I'd say. It's a stormable land, and imprints to Chrome Mox if you need the mana now. Still Mox Diamond fodder, for that matter.
Posted By: frogger42Jeweled Bird + Salvagers works if you've got 2 of them. But 1 mana -> 1 flexible draw isn't that bad, considering Vamp Tutor and the like; also helps get around the discard from Draw 7s, depending on the hand, you might want to "store" the draw after Contract. Also, my buddy anted up Lotus once... erm, gg.
Posted By: frogger42Stroke was there with Channel -> a more tutorable Yawg Bargain. It's just another option, but pretty weaksauce on its own.
Posted By: frogger42Hurk doesn't seem that great to me, considering a lot of the moxen are bad ones, and you're lucky to come across a real one (Crystal included) in a game. Just smells like deadness to me. And Mind's Desire is only 4 cards out of the deck; it allows for crazy 20-40 storm count, but consider it really a kind of tutor for Grapeshot or Tendrils or something. Likely Truth is a good tutor target, though.
Posted By: frogger42Rector might have to go. Also in there for the same reason as Dryad Arbor. Enlightened seems a better option at this point.
Posted By: frogger42Sunscape's a 0/3, right? Boltable dude... but worth a shot. Might replace Abeyance. I'll have to ask my buddy to playtest that guy. Thanks!
Posted By: frogger42Duress... idk. It's great, but a lot of the Draw 7s are 2-sided; Autumn's Veil almost always requires some sort of counter to it, which means they'll have to tap 2 mana to stop it (unless FoW is in hand), which is totally fine. That means with 2-3 mana available on your opponent's field, they only really have 1 counter available to them, regardless of how many are in hand. And they have to spend it on stopping the Chant. Playing against it as control, I have to read my cards very carefully (Mana Drain vs Shadow of Doubt vs Mindcensor are very different, depending on Chant/ Abeyance/ Veil) and usually my option is: throw a Shadow if I'm lucky to have it, let Chant resolve, cross fingers for a fizzle. I'd let Duress hit me any time, even if it takes Ancestral or Contract, because the counter usually yields the same CA and much much better tempo.
Posted By: frogger42The problem with blue cards is they cost blue mana to play.
