    With mill decks and the elrazi – what about Leyline of the Void or Hedron Crab + Ravenous Trap.

    Also, don’t you think most people wouldn’t go into modals and shit, when they intuitively figure: Harrow is for getting me two lands, i.e. they don’t think about any other stuff to do with it.

    Just put some vinegar on it! Why didn’t you think of that?

    Just got around to reading AJ and Dave’s articles. I’ve also read the articles AJ refers to by Chapin in reference to the Hive Mind.

    I agree with the core of AJ’s message, but I think he could have gone without the condescending tone. When GerryT does it it’s all in good fun but AJ’s article has a complete douchebag feel to it.

    There are people out there like AJ describes, that only want to play the flavor of the week and don’t bother trying to understand the fundamentals behind the deck construction. Countless people piloted UW Control without knowing why it beat Jund, only that it did.

    But I think it’s foolish to completely neglect the fact that there are people out there that read articles on decks to actually learn. AJ’s painting a picture with too broad of strokes.

    Building a foundation on fundamentals is necessary, but that doesn’t mean you should deprive yourself of what the greatest minds in the game are doing.
