Though this does lead to an interesting train of thought: if Teferi resolves, does the Clique just flat-out lose? If so, would it be optimal for Teferi to narrow it's focus to winning the initial counter war, thus enabling a more optimized selection of spells to protect it's key play? Cards like and are rediculously narrow under normal circumstances, but will win counter wars. Cards with significant drawbacks, like , are usually unplayable because of the drawback, but would be very good in this case- giving away 1 card (essentially) is totally worth it to lock the Clique into sorcery speed.

I'm just curious why these mono-U generals seem to still be an issue with Thrun now knocking about. He flat out beats them.

If Thrun is indeed favored against Clique, the format should become pretty normal, even if Thrun can't beat anything else (which is unlikely). You could play play Clique and lose to Thrun, or you could play Thrun and lose to everything else, or you could play something else and beat Thrun. No one deck remains a sure bet.

I've been playing Thrun in multiplayer, and I think I could be competitive against Sharuum and Zur if I tuned for 1v1. In multiplayer, killing the first guy is relatively easy, even with third parties interfering.

I'm not going to make a cliche clique post now. I'm not afraid of it. I know I've posted too much today but I haven't posted here in months.

You mean ban all sources that produce blue mana. Who would have thought blue would benefit most from this format overall.
