Strictly Better Mtg is a Magic: the Gathering Channel that does videos on everything Magic the Gathering. We do Mtg Deck Techs, Mtg set reviews, Mtg spoilers, mtg news, mtg speculation, mtg top 10 lists, and much, much more mtg related ish!
One tiny little thing... You never really talked about Golden Guardian. It prob is self explanatory but it seems like you should spend at least 10 seconds explaining the decks name sake card, and exactly how it works. You didn't even say what it does until the side board section. Anyway, love yer vids, keep up the good work, spread love and be kind. P
I JUST saw this card for the first time while looking at the list of all artifact creatures on Gatherer about 2 hours before this popped up in my You Tube feed. Quite a co-inky dink! Was loving the idea of this card, then BLAM Dev with a deck tech!!!
Hey Dev I was also thinking how cool it would be to win the lotto and marry the best girl in the world... so... P
I think so. I just started playing too. So, here's why: there is a strategy to this deck. It isn't just a mongoloid burn deck where you're casting lighting bolts and 2/2s with haste to win the game. You need to plan the game out for a) if you do drawn Golden Guardians and b) if you don't. It is mono-black, which is more user friendly than a two-color deck. It has death-touch, life-link, energy (sort of) and cards that should be played in the second main phase (Bonepicker). I love it and have won plenty of games with it, including coming back from a 22-1 life deficit and winning.
Sir, All I got to say is thank you for running Gonti. Had the most epic win with him. This deck was a blast to play. I had a lot of fun with it. I did use the fatal pushes and field of ruins like you said. Seemed good.
I promised I have tried. My best choice is to start using Sideboard Mtg in the description box and trying to make that tag pick me up. Youtube uses google's search engine so kinda stuck there! Listen learned to late to fix haha. Image how fast the community would grow if we wasn't a typo!
SideboardMTG well, anyway, I was looking for you in comments to catch the last night's stream video and wanted to say something like "oh hi, buddy, keep up the great job, live the stream, I wish your channel was easier to promote to peoplr in real life😆"
SideboardMTG By the way, Eric, can the thing with youtube thinking you're a typo be fixed? I was saying to a new player at my lgs "dude, check these two channels if you want to learn how to play anf understand standard. oh yeah, btw, look for the second one in the comments on the first one's videos, his channel is hard to search for on youtube, but you can't miss that channel. it's cool" the other week and it's the weirdest first world problem I've had in a while
SideboardMTG you mean that [SPOILER ALERT] sick triple Gonti stealing another Gonti? that was amazing and hilaruous and epic indeed. Well, I got some catching up to do on your streams - been waiting for someone to build around Golden Guardian and play it since it was spoiled
Love the deck Dev! how do you come up with the numbers for the raiting? i was always curious, cuz i wanna know how to improve current decks i've made or that you've showcased and find upgrades in cetainr critirias. just wondering how you standardize the what and hows on each aspect. Thanks!
This deck wants green. Having green allows you to consistently hit 4 lands without having to play 25 lands and gives you Herois Intervention in the board to stop opposing Field of Ruin which would hose this deck. Nice to see someone playing with Guardian. Has lots of brew potential
Actually tweak this deck slightly to be a little bit better one of the big things is giving it a better removal package I've only got to play one game with the deck but it was against a competitive deck blue black control with the gearhulk and the Scarab God and vraska contempt the problem with having a very good removal package is you lose draw power in the deck didn't really have great draw power to begin with to actually make this deck work you may actually want to run it blue black and you search for az to the get the removal one of the best cards to play is gonti he actually around your back out by allowing you to play opponents card so he can kind of mitigate draw power and removal and also counterspells if it results but in the long run I don't see much and draw Power even with the enchantment that's paying you for life I like The Deck Tech real actually use battle at the bridge to gain life to mitigate for the damage that you're actually taking from the enchantment that you have to draw but in this format of aggro decks I feel like it will hinder me instead of helping me but I might actually have to try it with the enchantment
I actually played mine with a RB 'Jack and Sack deck hijacking my opponent's creatures and use guardian as a means to get rid of them later. It was pretty effective, and it also is really great against the phoenix too.
Any plans to upgrade you studio setup? I'm a fan of the chill vibe but it seems like you're channel is much more popular and could maybe take the next step with a more professional backdrop?
Either way keep up the good work bruh!
I like Dhund Operative over Aether Poisoner (it will have Deathtouch when you need it to), and Baleful Ammit and Plague Belcher are both good bodies whose downside actually becomes a positive if you have a Guardian on the board. In fact, Guardian on 4 and if you make the land drop on 5, you can play Plague Belcher and have it immediately fight the Guardian and not die.
That was my thought as well. Play Rhonas on turn 3, guardian on turn 4 and Rhonas can block. Turn 5, flip the guardian against Rhonas and have mana open for a cheap removal or counterspell so you can make a token on turn 6 and reactivate Rhonas.
PhoenixXZY B/G is probably the way to go, but just in green there’s also Wayward Swordtooth to fight, Drover of the Mighty to ramp, and Narnam Renegade as a 1-mana deathtoucher. That could lead to some pretty sweet curves, leading up to flipping Guardian on T4.
nebDDa not really: The important part of Carnage Tyrant is that it can't be countered, so it's played as an answer to control decks. Scaled behemoth just eats a Cancel on the way down. Better to play something like Lifecrafter's Bestiary instead.
