The Rock knows you all like Skies (well, some you do) so The Rock asks you this: Is Static Orb better for Skies than Rising Waters? You get to drop the Diamonds. Many decks use non-land mana anyway, moreso than Skies. It`s cheaper. It`s an artifact, not vulnerable to the Thunderscape Battlemage. The Rock sees a Skies deck that drops the Troublesome Spirits to play maindeck Static Orbs and Indentured Djinns, as it is easy for Skies to play 3cc spells under a Static Orb and Hibernation is v strong vs Fires if you have Static Orb in. 4 Spiketail Hatchling 4 Chimeric Idol 3 Rishadan Airship 3 Indentured Djinn 3 Ribbon Snake 3 Daze 4 Foil 3 Thwart 3 Wash Out 4 Gush 4 Static Orb 22 Island Sideboard: 2 Withdraw 1 Rushing River 4 Gainsay 4 Hibernation 2 Submerge 2 Misdirection And The Rock knows for a fact that Sleight Of Hand is better than Opt for Skies.
