There are only 39 cards listed on Shriek and Wiki; not sure which card will be the 2-of or if there's simply a card missing. I don't see why they'd fail to list one card though since they clearly have pretty much the entire deck spoiled, so I'm fairly sure it's just a case of there being double of something. So we finally get to cross Lyla off the list of desired reprints, I thought it was kinda weird they combined Lightsworn with this deck but I suppose it makes sense from a stand-alone deck perspective. Mill dragons with Lightsworn. I suppose it's nice getting a few of these reprints but a lot of the stuff is stuff that would've been nice to have a few formats ago and not really relevant now. I'll more than likely hold off from buying any of this structure deck, simply cuz I'm not interested in Dragons as an archetype nor do I need any of the reprints. I don't own any Lylas, but I probably wouldn't run it in any main or side of any decks I currently have anyways, so what's the point. I don't imagine the "Dragons Collide" deck getting changed any when we finally get it. So for those longing to own a Lyla all this time, here ya go (most likely).

Shout-outs to Cody for getting 9th at this weekend's San Antonio regionals. He ran TG Agents. He told me he was the only person out of the top 12 to not run any Tour Guides, Spicer got 6th (w/ Chaos), and Billy Brake, along with the rest of the guys from Corpus, scrubbed out. He said Spicer said the Chaos deck was pretty much terrible, but it topdecks godly. This was the same assessment that Danny and I arrived at from our testing. Earlier this week I tested with Cody on DN to help him out the best I could. He showed me his decklist, and it looked pretty solid, but my recommendation was to take Kristya and probably Creature Swap out. I mentioned that Chaos Sorcerer was pretty boss and he wanted to run a 3rd TG Striker so he went with those changes for his regional deck. He was rather hesitant about dropping Kristya but I presented my logical standpoint of it; it's a hell of a lot easier to summon, can remove a problem card on-the-spot, and you can synch it for solid level 7's or 8's. It's basically another copy of an easy-to-summon boss monster. I asked him if he missed having Kristya and if Chaos Sorcerer was any good for him, he said "Sorcerer won me like 5 games so no I didn't miss Kristya." Glad I could help :) Cody has come a long way as a player since I first played him in Texas, so I'm proud to see that he's earned his invite!

It seems like Danny, Rob, and Zach are all wanting to play Rabbit now, even though Danny's still the only one to have the Tour Guides. I think the Tour Guide->Leviair->Rabbit play is too good not to have if you're running the deck, since it's basically just another 1-card Laggia/Dolkka, but if anyone can make it work it's Rob and Zach.
