Revisiting Lili's Rack: 8Rack Update (Pre-PTOGW lol!)

Tweaked this prior to the Top 8 of this past Sunday's Pro Tour Oath of the Gatewatch Eldrazigate, so it has not been readjusted for a completely colorless mono-eyeroll meta lol. I think adjusting the numbers of particular discard spells / to include or not Waste Not / Damnation will make room for main Bridges (again). We have not tested this yet against the new Eldrazi deck, putting that together this week so hopefully will have some actual results to share. This weekend this lost to R/G Tron, narrowly lost to Scapeshift, also lost narrowly to Abzan Chord or New Pod or whatever, and absolutely destroyed the "old" Eldrazi build. Didn't get to play against anything else. I expect Affinity is still a horrific grind. Burn and Naya were "ok" if I recall correctly, but I could be very wrong lol. I'm also suuuuper rusty so would be great to hear results from you good people who have been playing it regularly. The big changes for me were taking out Bitterblossom and Bob, and trying out Waste Not. Yeah, I had refused to go there for awhile. It seemed to give it more game against the annoying midrange decks like Abzan. I'm getting 8Rack on MTGO soon (finally!) and that should help me stay more up to date with it.
