Heather works hard to finish her new Beauty Lab location for her launch party, but worries that she hasn’t connected with Jen since Vegas. Mary goes to her place of peace, her church choir, while Lisa spends time with her family doing what she truly loves – making business plans. Meredith and Seth realize that their marriage is a hot topic for their friends while Sharrieff surprises Jen with a date night she won’t forget. And at the Beauty Lab Launch Party, Jen tries to make amends with her friends but it doesn’t go as well as she planned.
Hope y'all are safe and warm. Take comfort in knowing there's a Griffin shaped Popsicle in Austin. We'll send hot-and-ready's as soon as the roads are open.
Is everyone good?
are you a casual commander player that wants to crack a beer, shit post with some homies, and turn elves sideways? is your playgroup pushing more and more competitive? do you want to get back to the golden age of EDH, where everything was mediocre? do you want to dump 19 life into [[Hatred]] just to have it force of willed? then try lathril!
Since originally making the list, KumaTheBear has been helping out immensely with testing, and we have both been maintaining 25% winrates as our respective lists evolve. He found that it is better to focus on pumping lathril early, added things like [[phytoburst]] and [[might of the masses]], cutting [[immaculate magistrate]] and [[timberwatch elf]]. Our biggest goals in the early game are to cast a turn 1/2 lathril, then pump her when we swing. If our opening hand has a tutor, we want to hold it up so that we can tutor for collector ouphe if needed to stop a fast start from naus.
We have realized that this deck cannot stop the turn 2 ad nauseam, that player just has the nuts and unless someone mulled for a force of will, they have just got it. We are trying to stop turn them turn 4-5, the midrange naus. This deck excels in making their resolved ad nauseam much less impactful.
TLDR: chili elves are perfectly mediocre at worst and viable at best. We can make tons of mana, and hard casting a craterhoof is how i have won most games. we are maintaining 25% winrate in a diverse meta where we see the best naus decks and jank worse than lathril. its an OK tempo deck, feels better than winota, probably isnt as good as najeela or yuriko. overall, the jank gets there.
