Just 4-0'd a classic on modo. This was my deck.

4Sensei's Divining Top

1Engineered Plague

1Sower of Temptation
1Hydroblast
2Leyline of the Void
1Krosan Grip
1Umezawa's Jitte
1Kitchen Finks
1Kitchen Finks
1Crucible of Worlds


Your basic baseruption list. The Breeding Pools and Overgrown Tombs will be tropical islands and bayous as soon as I open some.

Round 1 vs Bard_Taliesin (Flash)

Game 1 he draws flash, hulk and 2 counters by turn 3, so I lose. Games 2 and 3 I get hosers out and kill him before he can go off. The great thing about this matchup is that they use the kill with carrion feeder, reveillark, mogg fanatic and body double, so basically every hoser hoses them. Pithing Needle, Plague and Leyline all do the trick. That or just countering flash since they can only play one.

1-0 (2-1)

Round 2 vs Samwise_geegee (Goblins)

He managed to get around my 1 of maindeck plague and have exactly enough game 1, but the finks out of board really helped mount enough defense and offense to let plague win it for me. Game 2 he topdecked a Siege gang after I wiped his board with a balance, and then I topdecked plague and then goyf.

2-0 (4-2)

Round 3 vs FFFreak (Burn)

He was borrowing my red deck so he was going to ship me packs if he won anyway. Game 1 he got there with burn before my slow clock could stop him. Game 2 I got counterbalance going and Finks held my life just high enough, and game 3 he scooped to a tutored CoP: red with 5 mana on board.

3-0 (6-3)

Round 4 Vs DragonRider (Dredge)

Game 1 he mulled to 4 into Bazaar. I wastelanded the Bazaar and he played another one. I strip mined that and he played coliseum, breakthough, win. Game 2 I got Leyline... oh and he mulled to 1. Game 3 I again got a leyline, but even without mulling, he couldnt find an answer to leyline, and I wastelanded his bazaar.

4-0 (8-4)

And I get MED3 packs. Sick.

What do you like for the Trygon Predator slot if you aren't expecting Counterbalance mirrors? (As this particular tournament wound up.)

Even against non-counterbalance decks they are good utility creatures. Almost all decks have vials/moxes/needles/crucibles/artifact lands.

Did an MED3 sealed. I looked at the lands first and was disappointed to see no nonbasics, then I looked at the blue and was much happier.

Mana drain also happens to be a bomb in this deck since I have so many cards that need a lot of colorless.
