Today I’ll be talking about Eureka and the way I built mine and my thoughts after about 20 games.
Initial list :
It has 12 “Eureka targets” that I should be able to play by themselves (minus lords of the pit)
It has 4 birds and 2 elves to ramp, alongside the 7 SoLoMoxen.
It has 15 green providing lands and the mox to make “sure” I can, on schedule :
- play a mana dork
- play Sylvan Library
- play Eureka
It has Mana Drain and Mana Short to force Eureka through permission.
Results of the first test session (about 20 games vs Artifact Control and MonoBlack splash blue) :
- Mana Short, Mana Drain and Braingeyser felt useless / uncastable
- Eureka should be a 3-of as it’s easy to hardcast targets and having 2 Eurekas in hand is so bad
- Lord of the Pit, Nicol Bolas and Animate Dead are too cute and not too efficient
- Underworld dreams, The Abyss and Icy Manipulators are problems.
The deck lacks interaction for my liking therefore the tweaking is discontinued for the moment and the post is going live.
