'Bad Maw' MaxX - 23rd at World's

divadus 887

Bad Maw

49 cards AND Maw as console? Yeah, no 'secret' reason for the former - I literally just had no idea what to cut amongst all the other powerful cards. RE: the latter, if I could do it all again (with full knowledge of the field), I would probably play Turntable instead of Maw. However, hilariously enough, Maw was milled in 75% of the games I played, and in the games where I found it, it did far more work than Turntable would have. So... play Maw, maybe? This deck was mostly borne out of getting stomped by Joe Schupp's MaxX (EDIT: apparently this was originally Aaron Andries' brew) and figuring that it was worth giving her a go, because Gabe just couldn't hack it against Gagarin (I still almost wish I had brought dude instead). Anyhow, deck went 5-3 on the day, facing 3 Palana (3 wins), 1 AgInfusion (win), 1 Gagarin (loss), 2 Cerebral Imaging (1 win, 1 loss), and 1 Potential Unleashed (loss, obviously).


GENERAL CARD/PLAY COMMENTS

Punk-art MaxX ID is sick.

Hunting Grounds is a really good card right now (Data Raven, Data Loop, grail, Komainu, Loki, etc).

Maw is really mean against grail.

Stimhack wins games.

Definitely chose correctly on the choices of cutlery.

Updooting the hell out of this for 3x Stimhack. Congrats on the finish! Given that you're on 49 and 2 Levy, how bad did you feel the PU matchup was?

@neuropantserUpdoot much appreciated. Honestly, the PU matchup is still really bad, given that I'm losing 3 cards from my deck every turn, but it could be worse. If you swapped out one of the 1-inf cards (which I would be loath to do, because of how good all of them are), you could find room for a Rebirth, which would make the matchup drastically better.

Glad you enjoyed! It's something we discussed, and aandries brewed up, less than a week before Worlds. It's def. legit, and I think paranoid only dropped 2-3 games with it over KOS/IceB/Worlds.

However, yours is an inferior build. ;)

@spagsYeah, talked with Aaron about it, and his brew seemed more streamlined. I really liked my Spooned, but 2nd Femme over Aumakua, in particular, would unquestionably have been correct.

@spagsYeah, talked with Aaron about it, and his brew seemed more streamlined. The I've Had Worse(s) were neat (though maybe not '49 cards' neat), but 2nd Femme over Aumakua, in particular, would unquestionably have been correct.
