    default DANGER! NEW DECK POSES THREAT TO THE META!

    Post by MasterTrainer on 11/26/2014, 2:51 pm

    Greetings.

    It has come to my attention that a new type of deck has been causing mass turmoil in the meta-streets of the game. This deck is rumored to be vicious, merciless, ominous, and nonetheless strong. Not once has the deck lost, and as it slays more opponents the stronger it gets. Many players have tried to defeat it, and all have failed. None have even gotten close in bringing the deck's life total to 5. With this in mind, further dek construction shall be aimed for one purpose, and one purpose only:

    Eliminate and destroy.

    The details are as follows:
    -The deck runs on Black and Blue Mana
    -The deck is heavy on counterspells and mill cards
    -The main focus of the deck is to slow the opponent down and make him mill his deck until the last card is milled.
    -The deck features a lot of creatures that can aid in this, not to mention cards that have strong presences in the field as well as their milling effects.

    With the new addition of cards from the Commander 2015 set, the deck truly is unstoppable. For now.

    The researchers in the Anti-anti-deck-deck Creation Committee (AADDCC) is no closer to creating a solution for this problem as they were a few weeks ago. Drafts have been proposed by the community about different kinds of decks and strategies, but none have been proven worth the effort to construct.

    Originally, the AADD was supposed to be a U/R Izzet spell-replication core deck, but on further research, a subtle but lethal flaw has been discovered. This is from the latest research paper published by the Izzet Weekly:

    ... It has come to our attention during the 284th test of the virtual perfect deck that it indeed has a fatal flaw. Test round number 284 was against the first-ever simulacrum of the anti-deck. Normally, the AADD is supposed to burn through the opponent during the first few turns, and when enough mana is built up, replicate the spells using Djinn Illuminatus or an Echo Mage, maybe some help with an Isochron Scepter. But of course, that game flow was created to kill any normal deck, but not the AD. The AD milled enough important resources during turn 6 (including the Djinn) making it impossible to win the game.
    Therefore, we have made the conclusion that the U/R candidate for the perfect deck is actually not capable of standing up to the AD, let alone defeat it.


    Making things shorter, the U/R 'perfect' deck wasn't so perfect after all, since there any milled cards by accident that are part of the core group of cards will make the deck weaker than a Jund-beatdown that's color-screwed.

    Until then, we shall wait for further announcements from the AADDCC.

    Just a little note: the current anti-deck (which has a 99% win-rate) was recently announced outdated. The new AD would feature stronger cards from the new Commander 2014 set, which would really boost its card advantage and milling strategies twofold. Unless we can formulate a counter attack, all other MTG tournaments are to be postponed until further announcements from the higher-ups.

    Note to consider: build an agro deck that can deal 20 direct player damage within 4 turns, an average of 5 damage per turn. The deck is going to need more mana pumps to get more mana than the 1 land per turn generation that a normal deck usually has. People, this wont work with a U/R deck. We might have to go G/R with this one, or mono red if it comes down to it. But since most good burn spells went with the Rakdos commander, we can go to a R/B deck focused on graveyard manipulation and burning. Still need more cards. OR, we can make the U/B AADD.
