10: The Modern Mashups Continue
Ah, yes. The classic Ensnaring Bridge / Life from the Loam combo. Realistically though, the "combo" isn't as embarrassing as it might seem. Instead of using mill rocks to lock your opponent out once you establish Ensnaring Bridge, it burns its opponent out with Seismic Assault and Life from the Loam. I guess that's a plan? Should your opponent have a Rest in Peace or Leyline of the Void, there's Chandra, Torch of Defiance to get there.
If nothing else, Seal of Primordium has to be better than Naturalize in your Ensnaring Bridge deck. The split on Faithless Looting, Tormenting Voice, and Cathartic Reunion can't be right either. Overall, it could use some fine-tuning, but couldn't everything? Whether this deck is actually better than Lantern remains to be seen, but right now, this deck probably falls apart if there's a slight breeze.
These sorts of decks existing should be a clear indicator that cards like Blood Moon, Ensnaring Bridge, Simian Spirit Guide, and Chalice of the Void shouldn't exist. I guess we just put 'em all in the same deck and make sure no one gets to play Magic.
