Rock vs Questvine

~
Happy Wednesday MTG peeps,

Apparently (news to us), there are other websites and You-Tube channels out there dedicated to Magic the Gathering ! Just kidd'n - there are quite few awesome fan sites and a wealth of MTG game strategy knowledge. While we were trolling the over evening, we came across a You-Tube channel by AndrewMTG. We loved it.

Today we were planning on yattering about the rise in popularity in the local metagame for Inquisition of Kozilek and to a lesser degree, Duress. While we were doing some some background / fact checks for today's post, we came one of across AndrewMTG's Green-Black Rock vids which of course features both Inquisition of Kozilek and Duress. Let's have a look - -

And here is the GB Rock List

2 Duress, 2 Inquisition of Kozilek, 2 Green Sun Zenith, 2 Ratchet Bomb, 4 Go for the Throat, 2 Doom Blade, 2 Sylvan Ranger, 2 Sign in Blood, 2 Black Sun Zenith, 2 Mimic Vat, 3 Vampire Nighthawk, 2 Glissa, the Traitor, 1 Sword of Body and Mind, 1 Garruk Wildspeaker, 2 Thrun, the Last Troll, 2 Acidic Slime, 1 Grave Titan, 1 Steel Hellkite, 2 Wurmcoil Engine, 8 Swamp, 8 Forest, 1 Oran-Rief, the Vastwood, 2 Tectonic Edge, 2 Evolving Wilds, and 2 Terramorphic Expanse.

We seriously love the early disruptions that Duress and Inquisition give and love the potential beatdown this kind of deck can deliver. We're a bit unsure as to the inclusion of Glissa, but will defer all judgment as things appear to work very well.

And here is the Green-White Questvine list in the video

4 Memnite, 4 Ornithopter, 4 Quest for the Holy Relic, 4 Glint Hawk, 4 Fauna Shaman, 4 Squadron Hawk, 1 Kor Skyfisher, 1 Stoneforge Mystic, 1 Kor Outfitter, 2 Lead the Stampede, 1 Sword of Feast and Famine, 4 Vengevine, 1 Molten-Tail Masticore, 2 Argentum Armor, 4 Sunpetal Grove, 4 Razorverge Thicket, 3 Stirring Wildwood, 4 Forest 8 Plains

From the vid, it appears that Questvine is give a solid smack down with the G/B Rock build. We're not sure what the most appropriate cards to sideboard against the type of match we just saw but dang - the shizzle needs more protection against those devastating blows dealth with Duress and Inquisition of Kozilek.

We don't often plug friends 'n' family here on MTG Realm but can say we are throughly impressed with the business a close friend has. Her business is BLITZ Business Solutions and whether you are already a business entrepreneur or are thinking of becoming your own boss (Magic Store Owner?), we think you may benefit greatly - google her.

Great blog! One of the few I check since coming back to MtG after almost ten years. I was wondering if you had a link to wallpapers of your background (five mana symbols). Thanks and keep up the great blogging. :)
