Personally, I'd go with a 3-2 split between mage and enforcer since mage isn't so hot MD anymore.

I have a deck thats based on threshhold as well, mine is G/W Armageddon you should check it out I like how yours has more of the control element with countermagic, I'm sure you know Birds of Paradise would be good here, also maybe Powder Keg, Null Rod?

Why would you change this deck from the amazing version that has captured Grow deck players? I just dont understand. Mystic enforcer is the most amazing card in the deck (only 1) WHY? Meddling mage should be sided unless you know what your playing against before you go into the tourny.

Definitely cut an explosives for another enforcer, and perhaps cut something else for another daze. But other then that this deck looks good. Straight fives good, except on originality, which i won't rate

This is probably one of the better archetypes in 1.5, so, it's a good choice to build off of. I see a lot of Threshold players playing Portent Buy because it digs three cards deep and helps preserve the quality of your draws. Opt or portent are viable in the industry standard, I suppose, but I personally prefer portent. I won't rate you for originality, but let me suggest that you play around with card choices on your own some. The build you're trying to run seems a little familiar to me, no offense. Nothing's wrong with sticking to an archetype but find out what cards work best in this deck for the type of player you are. Experiment with Predict Buy, Fledgling Dragon Buy, or something. You'll learn the deck faster, and you'll feel like you contributed on your own to its design. Good luck,have fun!

Please rate My deck.

no pithing needles? thats risky, also how do you plan on getting threshold without mental note or life from the loam?

The red splash Thresh list wants to be the beat down. I generally play on the offensive with Force/Daze back-up. Pithing Needle would fit in the sideboard, but generally Counterbalance + Top, Threads, Grip and Clasm take care of nearly anything I'd need to nullify with Needle.

This deck doesn't actually rely very heavily on Threshold. Its still named that, but thats just so its more easily identifiable. The only creature that cares about Threshold is Nimble Mongoose. This deck plays so many spells so fast that it achieves it quickly. Tarmogoyf is going to be around 3/4 on turn 2 all the time and Dryad grows as you cycle through your cantrips.

This is easily one of the strongest archetypes currently played in Legacy. This list is a very fine example of that archetype. Good job on it!

Why the maindeck Pithing Needles however? I'd imagine they're sometimes dead against certain decks. Its a nice answer to counterbalance...but I think few decks (except yours apparently) maindecks that combo to warrant maindecked needles.

I would switch out the needles for your sideboarded Mystic Enforcers which I think is more useful to you game 1. Also having a card to give you more outs to the inevitable tarmogoyf-tarmogoyf standoffs is gold, IMO.

That's all. Pleae rate my DeMonPoX deck too! Thanks very much in advance.

I would highly suggest adding a few Krosan Grip Buy to the board to handle opposing thresh decks (since they all seem to be relying on counter/top these days). EE can serve this function to a small degree, but having your removal be uncounterable is SUCH a boon. To make room I would suggest dropping the enforcers from the board, and then replace a MD mage with an enforcer. I have been quite impressed with the 3/1 split in my build, but it will obviously take testing to determine if that's just personal preference.

solid deck
don;t really know why it's called threshhold but I assume you've made some changes
one problem I can see you might have is the fact that sower sort of throws off the curve
it seems to me that in a control deck with this many creatures generally control magic effects aren't needed as much
I do understand that having a 4 slot for your countertop may seem important but when generally all you're going to steal is probably a goyf it just doesn't seem so crucial. plus you'll be losing more life to confidant.
another thing is that you run 5 spot removal spells which is quite a bit considering the 2 thoughtseizes as well.
and finally I would recommend making room for at least 1 or 2 wastelands. they usually seem to help every time I draw them.

but this seems really solid and fun to play with/against

ps i never rate originality

NH is one of the most difficult decks to change. Basically everything is set in stone unless you run the counterbalance version...

I wouldn't run Life from the Loam on your sideboard. The synergy is bad while Crucible is decent. Most decks won't run Krosan Grips to deal with the Crucibles.

I practically run an identical version of what you run but using Firespouts instead of RWM.

I highly suggest trying out Meddling Mage though. It's still really good even though ANT is gone.

didn`t read any of the other comments, so i hope i`m not repeating anything. but i actually like the idea of using your sideboard to splash black. i`ve seen other decks do it and people complain, but i like your deck outlook. my only suggestion is too drop submerge, as cool as the card is, it`s just too slow for goblin decks, and since your other answer to that seems to be engineered plague, which is a sweet choice, i`d say some how replace submerge with dark ritual and at least 4 of em. most legecy tribal decks run aether vial, so they first turn aether vial and you first turn dark ritual, engineered plague will kill most elf, goblin, sliver, you name it weenie creature. hope you like the suggestion.
