Breakdown in Phase III, Part 2

Here is a short video following up on the previous post’s topic. It’s the first video I’ve ever attempted; I hope you enjoy it.

Interestingly, now that I think about it, part of the reason that Demigod of Revenge has been so significant against control in Standard and Block is that it is a Phase III card… inexorable given enough time… Whereas many control decks lack a true Phase III.


Just a thought. Hope you loved the video.

Can you borrow some?

I play Blue in Standard more for that card than any other. I twist my mana bases to be able to hit UUU in decks with Doran. It is very important I think.

I am talking about Cryptic Command of course.

I’ll have a lot of Standard States stuff coming up this week but I don’t have sufficient lead time to look at this deck in particular – sorry.
