R1 vs ANT
I didn't know what he brought because he has most relevant Legacy decks, but I had 2 Chalices in hand and started with Chalice for zero turn 1, into Chalice for 1 on turn 2. Scoop phase.
Sided in Graveyard hate + Flusters and removed TNNs and some other high cost random dudes.
First Chalice got destroyed while Relic managed his graveyard. He had to go off but Relic successfully shrinked his Cabal Rituals. Catcher made him pay 1 mana (from 4 to 3) so his Tutor only found Ponder. He fizzled.
R2 vs UG Infect
I mulled to 5 (Island and 4 Lords) but he mulled to 3. I managed to not cast a spell and lose.
Game 2 and 3 my deck was low on creatures but loaded with interaction. His counterspells were not matched properly with Flusters, Chalice put a hold on his stuff, Wasteland destroyed Nexus and my anemic beats got there after many turns.
R3 vs Eldrazi
I Wasted his Eye, countered first monster accelerated with Simian SG and played some TNNs.
Side was nice for game 2 since Dismembers, Harbingers and Vensers replaced Chalices and Catchers for nice tempo match.
2 Reality S were returned with 2 Harbingers and tempo loss was too much for his racing.
R4 vs Punishing Jund
I drew 2 Copters which, helped by Chalice on 1, raced his ground dudes, while being safe from Bolt, Push and Punishing Fire.
Game 2 was more or less the same, Copters won by themselves.
Recap. I had to play 3 Copters because they are our "Delver" and "Brainstorm", it blocks Delvers (always annoyed by that card) and helps Silvergills keep the motor running. I see no reason for going with any less than 3, while 4 could be clunky.
I prepared my deck for Storm, Eldrazi, D&T, Delver, DRS decks and being soft to other stuff.
Worked this time.
(In response to FANAttiC's question about Night's whisper v. Dread of Night) Yes, I did. Derp.
I am playing in a large tournament this weekend, and seriously considering trying out a dark merfolk list. Either that or a list that is more geared towards mana denial, with some B2B main. I don't know. Just super on the fence about what to play in general.
I am still without chalice's as well, so that limits what I want to do.
cutting Chalice and an extremely stable manabase for DRS, 2 Leovold, some removal, and nice SB cards? DRS is stupid good and the removal/sb cards are quite nice... but??? I don't see it.
Regarding Relic of Progenitus, when do you usually bring it in? Obviously the Reanimator and Dredge matchups. But what about various iterations of Delver? What about Snapcaster decks? What about Loam/PFire decks?
I bring in Relics when I see 2+ cards that rely heavily on the graveyard. For example, Czech Pile has Deathrite and Snapcaster, so I bring it in. I wouldn't bring it in against a Delver deck that only has Deathrite, but I would against Canadian Threshold (which has Nimble Mongoose and Tarmogoyf).
