About the Deck. First off i am thankful for the ban of Samuel because I would not have even tried this broken offense if sammy would have been an option. That being said this is much better and more broken then samuel (in my opinion). As i playtested a bunch of decks against nic i quickly realized i could not beat him unless i played the same offense. The difference was mine is enterly build around mayhem, all but 2 cards in the deck can be set down to draw 6 off mayhem. Also around coliseum and naz made me cut some powerful cards but they were all stars in most games as coliseum tosses almost all the best band counters.

Against the field I love playing all the counters and felt like my match ups over all were better because I was not just raw speed. That being said both other throne decks were better in the mirror as shown by me placing 3rd.

Against Nic he was playing guardian and falling away. I was only playing falling away because I wanted shipwreck to kill storehouse for my hand looks and confusion. I believe killing storehouse with shipwreck won two games allowing me to play confusion and use urim and thirm. However before the tournament nic said to me when we sit down to play in the tournament "how bad will you feel knowing I have guardian and you don't" ....the answer Is very bad.

Against Josiah, His defense was just great for the mirror! Props to his forethought, animals were great against me. Worth noting our game was so wierd becasue we both had early misplays and clunky draws. Such a fun game! I really enjoy playing against Josiah.

Changes id make

Add Guardian for falling away

Move hopper to reserve (get with majestic heavens) and sub covent for lawless
These changes will allow the deck to go first more often which is essential when putting counters in play

Golden calf for rain becomes dust, golden calf was not good enough. or using hezikiahs ring and moving assyrian affliction to reserve.
