It's ok. "Amazing" is a strong...strong stretch. I would rather have an extra supreme verdict (which also nullifies their strongest top deck and then some).
A top decked plating or ravager won't swing the game to a loss if they are behind. The only potential top-deck card that can swing a game that much is etched champion, and only if they are not too far behind.
I have extensive experience against Affinity. Both as an ex-affinity pilot and as well as plenty of reps against the deck as a Jeski Pilot.
Against a top deck verdict does nothing. They top deck plating active blinkmoth and kill you while you sit with your verdict in hand.
You run 20+ ways to kill a blink moth (bolt, path, helix, snapcaster, celestial colonnade, spell queller). If a top deck plating + blinkmoth kills you - you are not ahead. You are behind. Very very very far behind. You may have stabilized but you are still behind. Hence my comment below

I don't know what you are smoking but Collonade active and block is SIX mana.
We are talking about top-decking situations. Those typically don't occur till after turn 4.
Typically turn 5/6 by the time Jeski exhausts all of it's resources.
The way Affinity beats jeskai is by top decking a power card
Also - casting cranial plating, activating blink moth, and equipping takes 5 mana. Affinity is not going to have that much mana before turn 4/5.
Unless they drew very well... and in that case the Jeskai Player is behind. See my earlier comment.
Or unless they flood out... and if that is the case blinkmoth + cranial plating isn't going to kill you.
EDIT: do you play this matchup much? Because having 5 mana for affinity before turn 6 is very rare unless they flood out. They don't want that much mana available 0_o.
I've tried to be reasonable with you but it doesn't work. I don't like to be trolled. Ignore button time.
