    Goblin decks are definitely 1v1 builds. Red can still do well in team play, though. Especially if you play Legacy. Chain spells can get real interesting real quick.

I don't think R/W humans will dominate the top scenes, but it's a great speed play.
    Oh for sure. R/W humans will definitely be a Tier 2 deck that will come out of nowhere sometimes and just wreck things. The stuff it got was rather surprising considering red humans only really came out in Avacyn. He knew it was his weakest match up so I imagine he saw it coming, guess he just felt he wouldn't go against them, but the first day he went 2-3 and then went 5-0 on Day 2 because he was lucky enough to not go against them anymore.

    But you recognize The Beatles as a band. You still seemed confused when I mentioned the Fighters of Foo.

    The Standard red/green deck is really fun, but it hinges off some really expensive cards. Flayer of the Hatebound and Rage Thrower. Undying is such a great mechanic though.

    I'm not saying I love The Beatles that much, but they exploded in popularity. I don't think a band is going to match that (relative) popularity any time soon.

    I wanted Voracious Dragon to be good, but devour is just a bad ability. It almost seems like it was created to make players think about what is bad and what is good. It just gets you 2 for 1'ed or higher every single time and it is not multiplayer friendly it all. The only decent devourer is Mycoloth because if it isn't killed quickly it gets out of hand.

    I never get to take advantage of the fact Voracious Dragon is huge. It's all the damage he does when he comes out. Course if you prevent it, I'm fucked. Then again, casual play.

    Flayer of the Hatebound Undying decks are bound to come out of the woodwork when the Titans leave. The Titans leaving makes a bunch of cards suddenly better.

    I think I'm going to keep playing my Red/Black vampire deck personally. Not a lot of "new blood" in Avacyn, but it's good enough for my friendly casual play. Always fun to have the highest life total in a group game purely through Falkenrath Nobles and Lifelink.

    You got a point there with casual play.

    I have a lot of tribal decks. 2 elves, 2 goblins, 2 soldiers, 1 bird, 2 zombies, 1 beast, and a few I am most likely forgetting.

    Oh, yeah, of course.

    I just think that the Beatles are kinda overrated. Especially their "newer" stuff. I like the older stuff a little because of the simplicity of it all. There isn't any "OMFG SEXSEXSEXDRUGSALCOHOLFGHDSBVFDEQKVBFDEQGBEQ" shit going on in it. Nope, they had songs like "I want to hold your hand" and "I saw her standing there".

    Have fun with Falkenrath Exterminator. You get that thing to land one time and it just kills all of your opponents creatures, then it just keeps getting bigger. Give it lifelink and it just goes crazy.

    Vexing Devil is pretty beast. It is awful in Limited, but in every other format it turns into 4 damage if you have it in your opening hand every single time.
