Learning New Skills

I'm still waiting for Hexproof to put up a premier, high-level finish.

Madcap Skills

In the meantime, I'll keep posting these tuned-looking lists that continue to 4–0 Magic Online Daily Events. Fleecemane Lion and Fiendslayer Paladin aren't perfect to suit up, but they seem to be getting the job done. One of the great things about the deck is that Skylasher out of the sideboard is exactly the type of dude you want to suit up in certain matchups. If you hate losing to Mono-Blue Devotion, then this might be your deck.

The sideboard also looks pretty strong. Mizzium Mortars takes care of opposing Blood Barons, which is one of the few things that can stand in your way. I love the use of Mending Touch against Supreme Verdict, and would consider a third if not for the already-present Boros Charms. Revoke Existence can get rid of indestructible gods or Detention Sphere and Gift of the Orzhova is an additional Unflinching Courage.

Hexproof is not exactly a fun deck to play with or against, but it looks pretty good right now. Mono-Black Devotion players appear to be cutting their Devour Fleshes as well, so now might be the time to teach your Gladecover Scout some Madcap Skills.
