This thread is for discussion of this week's From the Lab, which goes live Monday morning on magicthegathering.com.
Awesome Hazy Clones deck.  Filled with Timmy/Johnny goodness.


From Mark Rosewater's Tumblr: the0uroboros asked: How in the same set can we have a hexproof, unsacrificable(not a word) creature AND a land that makes it uncounterable. How does this lead to interactive play? I believe I’m able to play my creature and you have to deal with it is much more interactive than you counter my creature.

MaRo: One of the classic R&D stories happened during a Scars of Mirrodin draft. Erik Lauer was sitting to my right (meaning that he passed to me in the first and third packs). At the end of the draft, Erik was upset because I was in his colors (black-green). He said, "Didn't you see the signals? I went into black-green in pack one." I replied, "Didn't you see my signals? I started drafting infect six drafts ago."


MaRo: I redesigned him while the effect was on the stack.

I still maintain the best way to cast The Cheese Stands Alone is with the help of saclands. I've pulled off terrifying turn 4 wins with it off the back of Ancient Spring, Tinder Farm, Ruins of Trokair and Archaeological Dig, along with a Rites of Initiation or Sacred Rites. If every land in your manabase can sac itself, it's a whole lot easier to use.

But yes, I love the Hazy Clones deck too.
