I have been looking at a bug delver tempo list recently. Any comments/advice would be great:
4 x Delver
4 x Deathrite Shaman
4 x Quirion Dryad
3 x Snapcaster Mage
4 x Thought Scour
3 x Abrupt Decay
2 x Ultimate Price
2 x Unsummon
3 x Simic Charm
2 x Golgari Charm
3 x Dimir Charm
4 x Syncopate
I haven't finished fiddling the mana base but my only real requirement is to have 4 Ghost Quarter
. In some matchups it ends up being Wasteland
, and it fuels my shaman so I almost never have a drawback from GQ'ing someone.
Creature set is pretty self explanatory. Everything else triggers the Dryad.
For the spell section, I have to finish adjusting the numbers.
Thoughtscour is too good with Snapcaster and with Shaman.
The deck has answers for most of the formats biggest threats:
Silverblade Paladin: Dimir Charm, Ultimate Price, Abrupt Decay
Hellrider: Ultimate Price, Unsummon
Resto Angel: Ultimate Price
Thragtusk: Ultimate Price
Thundermaw Hellkite: Ultimate Price, Unsummon
Midrange Creatures are a problem, basically anything with power higher than 2, multicolored, cmc > 3. I am hoping that some bounce on those guys will sort me out.
Golgari Charm is mostly to keep my team from being eaten by Supreme Verdict. Simic Charm Doubles mostly as an unsummon.
I haven't finished the sideboard since I don't know numbers in the main yet.
