Default Who's Ready! Scars Block Constructed ONLINE! (soon)

So I've been goofing around with a few lists offline and seeing what could be good in Scars Block Con when it is released for dailies.

Infect Decks
M-Black, M-Green, G/B builds

Myr Combo Decks
I don't kno what you would do other then make a 5000/5000 Chimeric Mass or swing in with a really big Untamed Might or 1000 Myr Propagator

Myr Agro
Myr Battlesphere seems like a really good choice for a finisher.

Liquimetal Coating Decks
Seems like its going to be really cute. Since infect decks are going to have half artifact dudes and myr decks will be all artifact, having a ton of artifact hate might be nice. Then turning that artifact hate into LD/real removal, jeesh.

Slice in Twain
Sylvok Replica
Revoke Existence

Metal Craft Control
UR Metal Craft
Galvanic Blast
Stoic Rebuttal
Lux Cannon
Contagion Clasp

Mono Red Builds (This is going to be huge at first)
Koth of the Hammer
Then win.
If your deck can't easily deal with him, build again.

Mono white equipment agro

Auriok Sunchaser
Glint Hawk
Kemba, Kha Regent
Indomitable Archangel
Sunspear Shikari
Elspeth Tirel

Then slap on any of these boys:

Bladed Pinions
Darksteel Axe
Grafted Exoskeleton
Infiltration Lens
Nim Deathmantle
Strata Scythe (so sweet)
Sword of Body and Mind

Finish THEM
True Conviction

I'll post some lists once it goes online and I can play test a bit. But from the looks of it:

Infect will be real
Myr will be played (everyone likes tribal)
If you cant deal with Koth, don't bother playing
Liquimetal Coating will be silly
Mono white should get there most of the time. (3 great removal spells)
Asceticism will win if opponent cant deal with it fast.

What do you guys think?

The liquimetal coating stuff would be a whole lot cuter with echoing ruin.

The red and white stuff is probably too fast to be able to play janky easily disrupted stuff like that. If you run into someone not playing metalcraft they still have answers for any liquimetals you can draw and you have like a dozen dead/irrelevant cards in your deck.
Making personal attacks on people on here is pointless. Cut it out.

Mono Black Infect.
Green just seems to water down the pool.

4 Necropede
4 Contagious Nim
4 Hand of the Praetors
4 Ichor Rats
1 Trigon of Rage
4 Skinrender
4 Corpse Cur
4 Contagion Clasp
4 Plague Stinger
3 Throne of Geth
4 Grasp of Darkness
20 Swamp

Fast infect, t5-t6 wins often. MVP's Throne of Geth and Contagion Clasp. This gives your deck so much reach if they stabilize. Plus its fun to have 2x Corpse Cur and a Throne of geth. Block target wurmcoil, sac and they gain 1 poison. Continue till dead.

Grand Architect

4 Grand Architect
4 Wurmcoil Engine
4 Disperse
4 Precursor Golem
4 Darkslick Drake
4 Stoic Rebuttal
1 Steel Hellkite
2 Shape Anew
2 Volition Reins
4 Plated Seastrider
4 Silver Myr
24 Island

I was trying to get Wurmcoil out as quickly as possible as he just stomps so hard. Initially it was set up for T3 Wurmcoils, but my 1 and 2 drops kept dieing. Now its more like T4. Even with so much artifact hate availible, he often 3 for 1's. Worst Card: Silver Myr.... MY GOD!!1! myrs get hated out soooo quick. MVP: Plated Seastrider and Precursor Golem. Sea Strider gives you something to do against the mono black infect decks and the red/black control decks. */5's (with Architect pump) that are non artifact are practically untouchable.

Going to
-4 Silver Myrs. They die and do nothing!
+4 Something.... NO IDEA
Change up disperse? Contageon clasp sucks when you aren't trying to proliferate.
Really think I need White or Black... We'll see. (red? what do you guys think?)

Liquimetal Deck

It actually works.... Kinda.

2 Copper Myr
2 Iron Myr
2 Gold Myr

4 Galvanic Blast
4 Arrest

4 Slice in Twain
4 Oxidda Scrapmelter
4 Shatter
4 Revoke Existence

2 Viridian Revel
4 Liquimetal Coating
4 Wurmcoil Engine

4 Copperline Gorge
4 Razorverge Thicket
4 Forest
4 Plains
4 Mountain

What I'm Changing
+2 Viridian Revel. There really isn't anything Red, Black or Blue can do against it.
+4 Arc Trail. SOOO GOOOD

Basically late game you have mutliple Viridian Revel and Liquimetal Coatings out and just go destructo beam till you wipe thier board completely clean.

So thats what I've gotten from 3 days of playing so far. If your deck doesn't beat M Black infect.... Don't play it. Play lots of arc trails if your going to not play infect.

Decks I've played against:
4 M Black Infect
1 B/R Good removal deck (Best deck against infect so far)
2 Mono White Artifact decks
1 W/R Liquimetal Deck
1 M red equipment pump
1 Lets play all the plainswalkers (nice tix)
1 M Red Moltentail Masticore/Koth (nice tix)

Any suggestions would be great!!!!

Anyone been playing block regularly? I just got back into modo and have been playing a handful of 2-mans the last couple days...breaking even so far, but also punting A LOT. Seems like everyone is running Venser...which is worth about half of my whole deck! Gotta love the online economy.

Anyone have any favorite block decks?
