Whispers of the Muse: Triumph’s “Bant on the March”

Welcome to another installment of the most popular (and to my knowledge only) crowdsourcing precon deck tinkering advice column on the internet! Today we’re back with an interesting twist courtesy of Triumph: block constructed! Here’s what he had to say…

Conflux: Jund Appetite for War Review (Part 2 of 2)

This is it- our final match for our Conflux reviews, and I am looking to go out on top with a with for Jund. Looking to stop me is Jimi, piloting Grixis Shambling Army. Against that much removal, I have my work cut out for me…

Conflux: Jund Appetite for War Review (Part 1 of 2)

In his book Leviathan, by Thomas Hobbes and published in 1651, the author famously describes life in the absence of a strong central authority as “solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short.” He might have saved himself a few words if instead he said simply, “welcome to Jund.”

Conflux: Bant on the March Review (Part 2 of 2)

It’s a battle of neighbouring shards today as I look to pilot Bant on the March over the top of Jimi’s Esper Air Assault. Can the air war win this one, or will be a long, exalted grind on the ground?

Conflux: Bant on the March Review (Part 1 of 2)

Millennia ago, Alara was a plane in many ways like any other. It was whole and continuous, its mana in balance and proportion much as any other world might be. And to hear tell of it now, such a time is the stuff of myth and legend.

Conflux: Naya Domain Review (Part 2 of 2)

It’s a feral clash on offer today as I pit Naya Domain against Sam’s ferocious Jund Appetite for War. Will my five-colour strategy get there, or will I just be something else that Sam devours?

Conflux: Naya Domain Review (Part 1 of 2)

Thus far in our Conflux reviews, we’ve looked at each deck not only on its own merits, but how it compares to its predecessor in Shards of Arala. But to get a sense of Naya Domain, we’ll need to go back further still- to October of 2000.

Conflux: Esper Air Assault Review (Part 2 of 2)

With one of the themes of Conflux being what happens when shards collide with forces inimical to them, you could hardly ask for a better thematic matchup than Esper Air Assault versus Naya Domain. Sam took on the five-colour Naya deck to give my artifacts a run for their money, and here are the results.

Conflux: Esper Air Assault Review (Part 1 of 2)

In our last review, we returned to Grixis to see what had changed since the shards collided with one another, and began to reach out and explore their long-lost brethren. Today we’ll be moving one notch to the left in the colour wheel, to the orderly and artificial world of Esper.

Conflux: Grixis Shambling Army Review (Part 2 of 2)

It’s a classic match of good versus evil today, as Jimi has selected Bant on the March to act as foil for Grixis Shambling Army. Will her exalted beaters triumph at swordpoint, or will their broken bodies be added to the bonepiles of Grixis?
