Some more from the #TreyUSA   #Atlanta  photowalk.  Since Trey organized the trip, I used his Lightroom presets on some of these.

This last FNM I placed second with GB Constellation. I've also placed first with Mardu midrange. So what should I play this Friday? Anything using BW is out (my son is using those lands) as is UW (daughter has UW heroic). I could go GB again with a few tweaks. I've also seen a GU build with Yisan and Prophet of Kruphix that looks good. I could try a Temur control build. Izzet control also looks fun. I'd try Sidisi whip except I would have no Heroic Downfalls (son's deck again). Would Murderous Cut be enough? It worked fine in the GB deck.

I played a variation of GB constellation at gameday that was all hand disruption and removal, and then coursers, caryatids, eidolons, and doomwakes. I nearly got 1st, but lost to a netdecked jeskai tempo deck in the finals.

Rules Questions  - 
 
Does Strength of the Fallen continuously check the status of the graveyard, or does it only check when it is triggered?

I think I understand. X is checked at resolution, so it could change between trigger and resolution. Thanks.

I've been looking into mono black aggro, and I've worked up this list so far. Anyone have suggestions? I'm thinking of cutting even the one Desecration Demon for possibly another Brain Maggot. Not sure if I want that over Lifebane, but I know I can always use the ability.

If I ran something over Maggots it would be Shred-freak for the haste. More Marauder sounds fine. Most similar decks run Mutavault too, so Rouges Passage is my replacement since I won't have the latter. I could just drop them entirely.

I had my best FNM run ever with this deck. I got 3rd and lost only in the last round to mono black with a red splash. That seems to be my worst matchup, as I lost to one last time when I played this deck, too. Below is the list I have come up with including changes for Nyx and possible anti-black cards. My main deck seems pretty solid so far, though I want to test the new 5 drop UG Flash that's listed in sideboard as possible main. Thoughtseize and Duress hurt me a lot, and Swan Song is my attempt to counter. Curse of the Swine is to undo their devotion. Anyone have suggestions on how to sideboard against black other than what I have now?

Deck: blue green aggro.dec

Counts : 60 main / 15 sideboard

Last night I played this at FNM.  I went 2-2 and came in 10th out of almost 20, so not a great showing.  First round I did beat a UWb Esper control 2-0, so that matchup seems good as-is.  After that I lost badly to a GWR beats/heroic/doublestrike deck.   A Boros burn deck beat me the next round.  Most of metagame in the store is aggro, and my deck didn't seem to hold up against aggro faster than mine.

My main concern is the lack of removal.  The problem is that all the good removal is instant and not enchantment, and this deck runs on creatures and enchantments.  I run the risk of losing my removal to the graveyard with my dredging.  Does anyone have any suggestions how I can go about fixing it?

I got Supreme Verdict hit once. I won that game with a 25/25 Brain Maggot with trample overrunning his Elspeth tokens.

I've been coming here for years with my 2010 Sienna. The service has always been excellent here. My only complaint is that sometimes it can be difficult getting someone from service on the phone. I'm not going to knock them down on the rating for it, though, since everything else has been excellent.

MLM is a high volume dealer, so they are going to do well on the price. Eduardo was easy to work with and the sales process went smoothly. They drive the same kind of cars they sell, so they know their product well. If you're looking for a used luxury car that you can afford, MLM is a good place to find one.
