I didn't really want that TBH I was more interested in seeing how they would fare against decks that were actually meta so we can get a good sizing up of how well they do against things that are actually relevant.
Angels vs. Golds isn't exactly a meta-defining matchup.
I mean every deck is good until it runs out of fuel, it just depends on what "running out of fuel" constitutes for the deck and how quickly it actually happens. I mean, OTT is a monster until it runs out of fuel, if you consider "fuel" to be hand.
See that's great and all, but still ignores the fact that GP is like a double edged sword in the sense that you're selling away your hand for uber explosive gameplay. Sure, you can play conservatively, but why? Why would you do that?
Because you're a bad player, I guess? That wasn't the point of my comment, I was just saying that "runs out of fuel" is a metric that applies to every deck, and it's better to focus the comment to "GP doesn't have a reliable way of minimizing its fuel consumption" in the form of a consistent engine of advantage generation.
I think GP’s main issue is that your vanguard swings for 20k. At least giga Rex and Zanbaku gain some power. Same with navel gazer. I do feel that’s a necessity in standard. Deck has good plussing cards, but one heal is a two to pass once both players get going
I was saying that people who play GP conservatively like you were describing are bad. You were the one asking why someone would play the deck conservatively, and the reason I gave was because they were a bad player. I wasn't saying "you" were a bad player, I was responding to the same collective "you" that you were using.
