|Colorless card advantage.|
Creaturewise, Uthden Troll didn't impress me. Sure, they survive a Disk activation, but other than that they're mostly harmless 2/2s. A single opposing Mishra's Factory will keep them at bay and two damage to the opponent when they do get through isn't really that impressive either. So instead I went for Clay Statues. They beat through Factories, are a much faster clock, and can be cast with Mishra's Workshop. Also, the playset cost me $1, which is reasonable.
|Creature base. Miser's Shivan Dragon for value.|
Lands are the only permanents in the format that will dodge the Disk, so I also wanted a few cards to handle utility lands and keep the sub-theme of mana denial in place.
Sometime next week or so we'll take a look back at 2016 and welcome the new year. Until then, I hope you all have a great holiday.
