as it stands, yes, i am interested in going. i wouldn't mind actually testing for this one but i understand if people are busy.
i might have stumbled onto something rogue-ish i want to play that might be effective.
however, it needs to be tested against jund and u/w control variants first.
let me know if anybody who is going wants to test.

PostSubject: Deck I'm running   Sun May 09, 2010 5:07 am

I'm planning on running this at the tourney:

Creatures: x25
4x Birds of Paradise
4x Hellspark Elemental
4x Hell's Thunder
3x Ball Lightning
2x Goblin Ruinblaster
4x Bloodbraid Elf
4x Vengevine

Instants: x8
4x Lightning Bolt
4x Staggershock

Planeswalkers: x3
3x Garruk Wildspeaker

Lands: x24
4x Rootbound Crag
2x Raging Ravine
8x Forest
10x Mountains

Sideboard: x15
4x Great Sable Stag
4x Cunning Sparkmage
3x Basilisk Collar
2x Master of the Wild Hunt
2x Goblin Ruinblaster

I only got the chance to play one constructed tourney with it at FNM, but it did split for 1st. I really liked how the deck played, but I felt like Garruk was making it clunky. Do you think this deck would be better off main decking the Cunning Sparkmage package (-3 Garruk, -2 Goblin Ruinblaster, -2 Staggershock +4 Cunning Sparkmage +3 Basilisk Collar). I feel like the combo is really good against Bant/Vampires/White Weenie/Elves, but only ok against Jund/U/W Control.

i think the combo is good and you're probably right about garruk being clunky. i just dont't know if you should outright maindeck that or not. at least if it means weakening on some other stuff. playing that grixis midrange list i was playing, maindecking ruinblasters is really dirty. everybody has them in their sideboards but when you rob game one on the back of timely land destruction, those are dividends that are hard to quantify. so, the problem with what i am suggesting is there is the distinct possibility that the meta will be full of u/g polymorph and u/w and/or u/r/w control lists. suddenly, jund isn't the prettiest belle at the ball. so, i don't know. if you could, what would you replace garruk with if not sparkmages?

I've cut Hellsparks out of pretty much every RDWish build I've put together lately in favor of the Dragonlord or Kiln Fiend, simply because Hellspark gets stopped cold by Wall of Omens -- which is everywhere and I don't expect that to change for Regionals. Also, Birds seems meh in your build with how low your curve is. Goblin Guide is still really good and i would probably put him in that spot over the BoPs.

I think I would like to go to this. Allthough I don't think my Open the Vaults deck will cut it. Any suggestions/ help appreciated... Smile

I'd be interested if anyone needed a tester too.

Interesting, looks a lot different from my version. Might be worth a try thanks.

yeah, i think the addition of prophetic prism really helps the deck. the more card drawing effects, the better.
the list with a copy of both jaces i don't like. but i don't play the deck, so i can't really say. i just know it seems suspect.
i've been horribly ill all weekend, so i don't think i will be around tomorrow night or anything. the single dispeller's capsule in the 7th place list is almost certainly for discouraging mythic bant. i think you aren't too far off thinking about going with open the vaults.
i am going to assume that the u/w matchup is kind of difficult but i can't really say.
