UR Twin: Spread the love v1 alpha draft

Note:  this is just a collection of thoughts and a rough decklist

lost a lot to tron, roughly 1 - 3 in matches vs it, can only beat average players, good players have good plans, are resistant to blood moon, and have strong hate cards like boil or choke

notes on this list

  • shore up the tron match up
  • experiment with the 4 colorless mana base
    • no fucking way am i going back to the 1 loothouse living
    • i like the 1st tect edge over the 2nd ghost quarter since i think 2 lands that give your opponent mana on the exchange is a bit too high
  • try out spreading seas again and see if it's as glorious as it once was
Deck has 18 blue sources, which is average for twin lists
only has 14 red soruces, which is noteably lower than average but still functional

Lands (23)
4 Island
1 Mountain
4 Scalding Tarn
4 Misty Rainforest
2 Steam Vents
1 Breeding Pool
3 Sulfur Falls
2 Desolate Lighthouse
1 Ghost Quarter
1 Desolate Lighthouse

Spells (21)
4 Lightning Bolt
4 Serum Visions
2 Spell Snare
1 Dispel
1 Logic Knot
4 Remand
2 Spreading Seas
1 Roast
1 Electrolyze
1 Cryptic Command

Threats (16)
3 Deceiver Exarch
3 Pestermite
4 Snapcaster Mage
2 Vendilion Clique
4 Splinter Twin

Sideboard (15)
1 Relic of Progenitus
1 Dismember
1 Dispel
2 Ancient Grudge
2 Pyroclasm
1 Roast
2 Blood Moon
1 Vendilion Clique
1 Engineered Explosives
2 Jace Architect of Thoughts
1 Keranos God of Storms

I'm thinking about leaning toward the control plan and playing 2x Jace AoT > 1/1 split of Jace/Pia.  That way I can board in Jace in some combo match ups and dig to land denial vs rg tron.  Also thinking about how to fit in one, just one crumble to dust.  I don't like playing molten rain since blood moon is such a beating vs a wide range of decks (bloom, uwr, medium vs infect).  Might want to try to wiggle in the 2nd electrolyze.

If the spreading seas aren't good I can go back to +1 dispel +1 logic knot.

So far the 4 colorless mana base hasn't cost me a game, but in one game vs burn it was awkward.

part of the spew vs RG Tron may be caused from not having enough answers to spellskite g1, which in turn effects g2-3?  not doing it cause i think it warps the deck a bit too much, also twisted image is a consideration mayhaps

could try out 2x batterskull, 2x jace aot, 2x blood moon for fair mus
might pass on crumble to dust and coast off the main deck changes

please cheer for me and i will try to give good games and reports

so im thinking about changing the sb
-2 blood moon
-1 crumble to dust
+3 Molten Rain (with 4 snaps)
-2 ??  keranos and whatever
+2 thundermaw hellkite

and md -1 ?? +1 electrolyze (probably dispel)
