Bendy MaxX (ATL Regional)

yeoda 945

5-0 for this event. Swiss: Palana, Palana, CTM; Cut: CTM, SSO.

Best card is Maw. Don't be a bird... Just play this :)

Obviously have to credit Dave Culemann for the continual work on the list. I've played several Bendys since KoS 2017 and it has done so well at any event we've gone to, whether here in US or the power house events in UK for @shmeguy.

Pad Taps obviously a great choice to keep you afloat and swing tempo if they trash it all. Maxwell James obviously has a lot of utility that needs no explanation. This had 2 Falsified credentials/1 Maxwell James in it before as well, which is also a pretty good version (have to remove peddlers). with all the Pad Taps going, I actually cut a 3rd liberated, which ran smooth - so you can change what you need. Either way, I hope you enjoy the list.

I'm not a great deck writer, but thanks to all those who i worked with. Including Dave, I would have to shoutout to Stephen Ball and Zach Cavis for continual support and scrutinization/constructive criticism. Maybe sometimes destructive criticism (Stephen...) But thanks for it all!

Also huge shout out to Dodgepong (Ben Torell), Jeff Lindsay, Alec Nelson, and Hollis Eacho for their work and giving us all a great event. Everyone should really subscribe to PeachHack Patreon, regardless of the game going out. Ben has done so much and he is still doing so many great things for this awesome community. Shameless advertising for one of the most professional content creator I've seen.

Congrats!! I hate that I didn't get a match against you because I'm a HUGE fan of Maxx! Good luck in the future and #alwaysberunning

Welp, you convinced me that Bendy MaxX is a thing, despite not liking the archetype before. PAD Taps for daaaaaaaysssss.

Question: How do you feel this does against Titan? I worry that the setup is a little slow, although if you get the Maw running early you can cause them a headache.

Congrats on the finish! So many fun MaxX decks out there to play. It feels strange to ask this about a deck that went undefeated, but are there any changes you think you'd make?

I see no mention of your heart attack at my Shipment From Tennin off the failed DDM run. Amazing games from a truly amazing player and I'll get you playing Jinteki yet. I'm gunning for you at Worlds! The FINAL SHOWDOWN.

@Thike - Titan is tough. looks for Maw/DDM/Laundries. I'll admit that i do hate seeing Titan.

@neuropantser - this list fluctuates all the time. It really jsut depends on what you expect to see. For the foreseeable future, no changes are going to be made right now.

Thanks @codychilton13 and `@Jandersoncad'!

Isn't 17 events a little bit too much to handle for a little Street Peddler?

What makes a MaxX "Bendy"?

24 Jun 2018 Fruggles you go through the deck so quickly that it ends up not being a huge deal, and 3x Same Olds helps mitigate any critical losses to a peddler.

@RepoRogueI had to look that up. Maxx is Bendy due to the Data Folding

29 Jun 2018 yeoda the peddler choice is always the number 1 criticism of the deck. I can tell you that I’ve only ever suffered from it twice in dozens of games. And I still won those games anyway.

And yes, bendy is due to Data folding. If you see the description from the derived deck, it’ll explain.
