Love this deck. Lots of interesting decisions to make. Saw you in the Throne tournament, impressive run. Thanks for sharing.

What do you mean by a sealed deck?

Huh. Well as you pointed out I placed second, so I'll take it as a compliment of my piloting skill.

Took me a few secs to figure out the list (was really lost when I went to the Market). Nice job, just as fun as the Rakano Trove list I found the other day.

Congrats on the amazing run. An excellent deck with ideas that have defined part of the meta and have single handedly changed keelo decks forever :)

You're playing 5 colors and have access to a wide array of removal options, yet choose to play Searing Strike... I can't get behind this idea. Equivocate, maybe?

I think you may be misjudging the deck a bit. The first 3-4 turns play out more like a combo deck, as such, there are a lot of overlapping actions that need to be considered. Slowing down against an aggressive deck to fit removal into the turns really hurts decks like this.

Personally, I thought that searing strike stood out as a very clever removal spell. Able to interact with most of the aggressive units, without slowing the deck down at all

Also in my draws banners are tapped a lot maybe like 2-3 scout lands? Sorry for spam just thinking

Eremot's designs can definitely help against some aggro decks, but killing your own initiates can also be painful.
It's probably good in a JPS version that doesn't play initiates.

The current power base is built to optimize for turn-1 ramp unit, turn-2 merchant, turn-3 Keelo.Crest's don't work well for that plan, but they are quite reasonably if you are just going for turn-3 merchant or turn-4 triumphant stranger from hand. I tend to redraw opening hands that have all-banners, but usually you can find an order that lets you play undepleted power when you want to play a merchant.

Maybe Eremots instead of searing strike? Also means u need red later in game which might help curve

Fitting name for 2nd. Lol. I love the idea of this deck I was rooting for you in finals

This is a remake of my old deck: Turn 3 Triumphant Stranger

The deck had a really bad matchup againt sling, but the meta seems to have shifted such that very few people are playing snowball, torch, hailstorm, and turn to seed. As a result, getting Triumphant Stranger ASAP is a solid game plan.

My biggest change from before is that I now play a lot of power (34). This helps with the consistency of getting enough power and influence to get started, and merchants trade away excess power later. Searing Strike is a flex slot but it helps against some aggro decks and it doesn't slow down your opening at all.
