dont bring it in vs humans. the only time you wanna bring in narrow hate cards is when the matchup is pretty bad and you need anything and everything that could swing a game in your favor.
abrade is really good though if you run any of those.

Holy smokes Karn is 40 dollars...
And despite the influx coming in, I think he's only going up from there for a bit. Hard to keep the cost down on a thing that will see Modern and Legacy play (limited though it may be). Hopefully after a while the Chandra effect will kick in.
Quote from Aazadan »Quote from spawnofhastur »If I had to hit a card from Hollow One, it'd probably be Burning Inquiry, but not from a power standpoint - Street Wraith is probably the more powerful card in the deck, etc.
No, it's because I hate keeping a hand because I think it has the tools I need to deal with the matchup and then they turn 1 Inquiry me and discard all of my lands. I get far more frustrated losing to Hollow One because it forcibly mulligan'd the hand I kept than I do to losing to Storm or Lantern.
Maybe you need to change your mulligan strategy in the matchup? In most matches you want a hand of lands and spells, but against Burning Inquiry, lands+spells is a good way to lose one or the other. Instead you want a hand that's heavy on either lands or spells, so that inquiry smooths your hand. Basically 1 land+6 spells or 6 spells+1 land is good against them while 4 spells+3 lands is not.
Quote from sarcastic1ne »Quote from tronix »the point i was trying to get across is that if you truly think hollow one is broken, unhealthy, toxic, etc there is nothing to be gained by pussyfooting around it - you want the deck gone. bans are how this is best accomplished, and the method that wotc would most likely use based on precedent.
better to understand whether the deck is actually too good or if you just dont like losing to it.
I view it similar to dredge with GGT, the deck concept/idea itself is fine, it just needs one of its more powerful enablers taken away, and of goblin lore and burning inquiry, I feel inquiry is the worse of the 2.
