Krasis is indeed perfect here. I will cut one counter spell, Inspiration and one Vial for them. And add another Timberland Guide for the other vial. And one Rogue's Passage for one Mire. Evo Leap is very strong too but i am not sure what to cut.


The last Vial, for Evoleap instead of the 3º Guide. Or a Telling Time, 2 is nice enough...in a temp-ish control deck like yours, having draw is necessary...and evoleap is draw. That and mightly aleviating the main problem of Willbreaker makes it a winner in my book for this deck...probably just one, not the two...also, all your creatures except the Guides are amazing...having them early through Leap totally rocks

Yeah, how important is Willbreaker? If it's key, then you should keep your draw and cut a counterspell. You don't want to counter most creatures anyway if you intend to steal them. You only want to counter stuff that goes after willbreaker?

You have no board except a Passage...opponent has a Colossus and some more critters...dropping a Willbreaker is "win more"?

Lol, welll...bah, insert yourself the adecuate mad burn and then blush, I'm with the morning cofee...

Sure, Planars are better...but that's besides the point. Willbreaker, like Control Magic, is the definition of card that can turn 180º a board...and so, hardly "win-more".

Tfw stealing Mog...priceless. And saccing him with Evo etc, if Willy gets toasted...I always play him with sac outlets

Control Magic is so much better than 2/3 5 drop guy its ludicrous to compare it. Hey you wanna toy around with the breaker, sure it's fun, especially with Evolpea in the mix, but leave our beloved control magic alone :alone:

You could try put Willbreaker next to Sower of Temptation..... but that's also not gonna end up well for mr bad hairday.

Yeah, it's lowfritos to compare Control Magic with a guy that does...wait, Control Magic!

And that's the important thing!! Low-fat Fritos that keeps your folicles healthy, because this, from the very begining, isn't about what is "win-more" or not... this is obviously about Willy's haircut!

Pity Chandra's Ignition (target) doesn't target the creatures it damages... That would be so cool...welcome to the new Izzet archetipe, Chandra's sputtering...never a Ignition was so lame and so awesome at the same time... :V

Creature (23)
3x Bounding Krasis
4x Eldrazi Skyspawner
4x Frost Lynx
2x Jhessian Thief
3x Skyrider Elf
4x Welkin Tern
3x Whirler Rogue

Instant (10)
3x Adverse Conditions
4x Disperse
3x Spell Shrivel

Sorcery (4)
4x Clutch of Currents

Land (23)
7x Forest
2x Hinterland Harbor
10x Island
2x Lumbering Falls

You definitely have way too many 3CMCs in that curve to work in a tempo deck.

Agree. Snapping Gnarlid and Undercity Troll should be here. I'd cut Jhessian Thief (doesn't do enough damage) Spell Shrivel, and a Frost Lynx. I don't think we have enough flash creatures (yet) to justify countermagic in a deck like this.. but if we get 1-2 more.. Ohh baby will we have a deck.

Yep, agreed.

There are some pretty cool flash creatures in the right colours out in Oath I would love to get in Duels. It would make Flashing Tap Dancer a reality.

Today I just play 5 games, all win.

But I agree Jhessian Thief isn't very useful in that deck.

For Spell Shrivel it's too soon to say something because I didn't meet Languish or other cards which can kill all my creatures.
To be honest, it's comfortable to have one in hand. I'll see after more games.

Frost Lynx is interresting to tap flying creatures or with special capacity.
Perhaps there's better to do.

It's my first parties at Magic duels so I haven't any step back to be pertinent.

It's not tempo, guize, read the original article linked...it's "drop 4 flying power and control&stall frpm there"...that's why the curve doesn't matter...oh, and btw, the own author admits it crumbles against thopters...

It is tempo, he just doesn't want to call it that.
