Agreed, at least in Standard. He is just good with Experiment One.

Vexing Devil is only good if you can really punish your opponent for taking 4, and there just is not enough good burn in Standard right now to do that. He is much better in something like a Modern burn deck where after they take 4 on turn 1 you can play a Lava Spike on turn 2 followed by a Lightning Bolt and all of a sudden they are at 9 after cracking their fetch.

Using previews to do it is new, but I thought it was standard for SCG to manipulate the market.

Didn't they buy all the Tarmogoyfs on the market shortly before Modern was announced as a legal format?

Lili is a bit expensive but how good is it in Modern?

I've played about 30 games with it so far and I think it's definitely competitive. It's really tough to play, though - I keep making a lot of mistakes. Resource management is really stretched when you play Faithless Looting with no card draw, so I'll make a Looting decision on turn 4 and then on turn 9 I'll realize that I screwed it up, or after the game I'll watch my replay and I'll see that I shouldn't have played Looting at X point in the game or I should have held a land that I thought I needed but it would have been better to pitch it if I drew a Looting, etc.

It's a tricky deck for sure. I'm still winning my fair share of matches, and as I iron out the mistakes, I'm sure my winrate will go up. I've had trouble with really aggressive decks, but the other matchups have all felt pretty reasonable.

That makes a lot of sense, what's your build like?

I can definitely see how that creates a ton of decisions. Feels like that deck would play very similar to Jund Midrange, one theory I tried when Blitz was prominent and I was playing Jund Midrange was running 4x Gloom Surgeon and 4x Nighthawk theory they perform better against aggro and against control they are better than removal. List I had back then always did well, updated I think it would look something like this:

Running the full pack of Liliana's + Lingering Souls has tested extremely well for me (the upside of Liliana being a lot bigger against aggro when running LS). I'm wondering if the aggro matchup could be fixed by running something like this in BWR Midrange:

Re: Magic: The gathering Online

re: Bleiweiss emptying the market of Cloudstone Curious,

I managed to get @SCGLive and @SecludedGlenn to respond on Twitter, so maybe that will spread some attention to the matter. His response, of course, was, "This account is a broadcast, not a dealer. I don't know whether that happened, but it has nothing to do with this account."
