jace's phantasm win con?

#1SgtInfinityPosted 7/11/2012 9:46:49 AM
Creatures
4x Delver of Secrets
4x Jace's Phantasm
4x Elgaud Shieldmate
3x talrand sky summoner

Land
23x Island

Spells
4x Essence Scatter
4x frightful delusion
4x Thought Scour
2x Index
4x Mind Sculpt
4x Negate

Use mind sculpt/thought scour as soon as possible to buff up phantasms. soulbond them with elgaud.

Anybody have any ideas? I'm hesitant on the Talrands and would probably swap them up with snapcaster.

Land
23x Island

Spells
4x Essence Scatter
4x Rewind
4x Thought Scour
2x Ponder
4x Mind Sculpt
4x Negate

swapped up index for ponder and FD for rewind

Now for creatures, how should I have it set up? Should I drop elgaud and add in 4 snaps? or should I put in 2 snapcasters instead, and then add in 2 ponders?

Deadly Recluse is unplayable or mediocre against every deck that isn't Delver (play it against control and watch them laugh uproariously), Pillar of Flame is a worse version of Shock, a card which is decent against Delver but already exists and isn't played, and Sever the Bloodline is actively terrible against Delver - they're almost never going to have multiple copies of a creature out unless they're a Lingering Souls build, and even if they do, it's an invitation to be Mana Leak/Restoration Angel'd out of a turn.

Pillar of Flame is a worse version of Shock

I'm sorrry but... WHAT? What world do you live in that Pillar of Flame isn't a strictly better Shock? ESPECIALLY in this metagame of Snapcasters and Undying creatures? Like.... this is this most ignorant statement I've seen all week.

But carry on like Delver is somehow unstoppable. It amuses me. Delver is No Jund or Faeries. It has no where near the pressure they had, and no where near the recovery possibilities each had. Delver is a good deck. A very good deck. But it does not match past "Standard Boogiemen" in the least bit.
