Cave Meta

I ended up playing Standard today so the Showdown could fire. I know there was a Tron deck, Burn deck, Izzet Delver, and Rakdos Exhume deck. Don't know what the other decks were. It's always an interesting blend between more and less competitive personalities and I think many places have some of that.

I hope to play Pauper next week. If not, at least I know I can come in 3rd for the Showdown. :)

Tron player here. There were two other Kiln Fiend decks besides the one you mentioned (which I know because I played against all 3 in a row x_x), as well as Affinity. My list was fairly stock Murasa Tron, with a lot of Hydroblasts and Moment's Peaces in the sideboard in anticipation of Izzet Blitz. I also was trying out a single Dinrova Horror in the maindeck, which worked out very well.

I completely forgot that you had asked everyone to record their decks after the fact, so I made an account here to rectify that XD

I forgot to record deck lists, too.  Would have been fun to keep track of the meta and bragging rights :)  

Lots of blue mages at the Cave it seems.

I mean, if you ask me "would you rather play Mulldrifter, or not play Mulldrifter", I'm not gonna have to think for too long :P

That's a fair point

Thanks, and good job on taking first. I'm pretty sure I know who this is. ;)

Unless we had two Tron players yes. :)

I played one, game 2 ended with Atog hitting me for 26 (i think) it was pretty sweet.

Just the one Tron player. You probably played my friend on Affinity.

Yeah, it was Affinity.

Pauper didn't fire yesterday. I'm trying to decide if I should buy into a couple of Tier 1 decks to have options, or proxy up stuff and try to remember to change out cards before Sunday tournaments. It is fun figuring this out for 3 of us! :o

I have a mini-gauntlet of decks, some brews and a couple of Tier 1 decks. I think you two have seen most of it. :D

Tier 1 Standard?  

Was bummed about Pauper not firing yesterday, I have a couple more weeks until my daughters dance class starts on Sundays so I'll be out for a couple months until it's over.

Hopefully we can get those next two weeks to fire! I'll do my best to get our 3 players there.

Without Standard Showdown I think we'll be fine.  It was kinda fun having so many players and both tournaments going at the same time, probably not so much for Peter (I think that's his name) to manage both

OK, this is what I think the meta was for today:

Dimir Reanimator, Kuldotha Mardu, Dimir Control, Izzet Blitz, Simic Infect, Red Deck Wins, Jeskai Affinity/Metalcraft, Izzet Burn, and Blue Delver.

I think the dude said it was just Kuldotha Boros this time, but otherwise that looks correct :)

Thanks! He said he mashed up Affinity (Frogmite) and Kuldotha. He had Thoughtcast and Spell Pierce also.

Oh, no, I mean the Mardu player. He took out the Terminates and Anglers and such for Thrabens and Rally the Peasants and such. The pseudo-affinity guy was definitely Jeskai.

Ah ok! That makes sense! :)

Two weeks in a row that Izzet Blitz got me.  Some misplays with Vines of Vastwood potentially cost me the first game, and when I tried to Fog a 26/26 Cyclops it was Dispeled.  Still a good time though, I appreciate good game play even if it's against me.  Always learn something and add to your bag of tricks, and unfortunately my bag is pretty empty :D

I played Kuldotha Boros this week. The other decks I saw were UR Burn, RDW, Izzet Blitz, UB Alchemy, and I think some sort of UG Energy deck.

A lot of regulars this time around, so most of the decks were familiar. Looking forward to next week!

UG Energy is something I've thought about, was it a aggro/creature build from what you saw?
