Episode 39 – Infect Situations

With cards from Kahns already making an impact on the format, we have a quick review of how the delve cards are doing and also take an in depth look at a deck thats been doing surprisingly well while no-one was looking – Infect stompy.

    Vines of the Vastwood actually doesn’t grant hexproof. One of the neat things about it is that you can cast it on your opponents creatures (in the mirror for example), to stop an opposing Invigorate or someone trying to equip an Umezawa’s Jitte.

    1. Yh. It was something I only appreciated today after playing the deck a bit more on cockatrice. I had the mirror, and its really super tactical. How do you use vines? Do you play into daze? When to pump (esp. postboard with submerges…). Its a good spot, and a great use for the card!

    I enjoy the cast. I have recently gotten into playing Legacy in the last 2 months. I love the diversity of decks in the format and just casting some of the most powerful cards ever printed. It’s great to find a cast that takes a solid look at the format and card pool. I really enjoy the in depth discussion of specific decks like Infect and Death and Taxes. I have considered building D&T, I just don’t want to drop the money on Karakas’ and Rishadan Ports right now. It’s great insight into how to play against those decks. I have been playing Sneak and Show and Goblins (sans Port obviously). I recently Switched to RWB Delver for a change of pace and because Caw Blade and Delver were two of my favorite decks when I played Standard. I also have UW Standstill built but haven’t played it yet at my LGS. I will be giving Treasure Cruise a run in American Delver to see how it performs. I personally, don’t really like Khans as a set, but I love the cards it has brought into all the various formats. Just wanted to say how much I appreciate the cast.

    1. Hey man! Glad to hear that you’re enjoying the podcasts. And glad to hear that you getting into legacy too. I really strongly feel that its the most interesting format, and maybe the second most skill intensive (after maybe a complex drafting format). Its also a great time to join, with Kahns shaking things up and everything :). And it seems like you’ve got some sweet decks together. It seems like some ppl are playing 2-3 treasure cruise in those patriot delver list. The main advantage to playing the white it seems is still Rest In Peace, which also cuts off their cruises…. Some interesting times ahead to see how the meta settles… :).
