And I find out you ended up with Brain in the Jar. Hmm, how about this:

4 Duress
4 Asylum Visitor
4 Mind Rot
4 Ruinous Path
4 Languish
4 Grasp of Darkness
4 Nightsnare
4 Transgress the Mind
20 Swamp
4 Brain in a Jar
2 Pick the Brain
2 Necromantic Summons

Re: TTC 129 - CSL Week 1-3 Recap

My 2 cents on 2 of the cards I've actually brewed and played with: Tamiyos journal: Build around the journal and Briarbridge Patrol - you can use the Journal to tutor for any creature on your opponents 2nd Main Phase and get it into play in their end step for free. Add Tireless Trackers for addition...

Re: TTC 128 - Highlander Deck Techs

Since Cam mentions liking decks that play 8 ofs, here's a Standard deck I've been using for a bit: http://deckstats.net/decks/17108/468891 ... is-2016/en
8 Disperses
11 Boardbounces
8 counters that go online at 1U
8 Creaturelands
Fun!

Re: TTC 126 - C-C-C-Combo

Hmm, I think Aggro-Midrange-Control isn't that hard to define. Let's imagine a situation in which no interaction happens - so no creature gets blocked, no spells get countered, no hand disruption, no removal. For any two decks in a format you can ask: Given these restrictions which deck is more like...

Re: how to sell my collection

deckbox.org may also be helpful. You can enter your collection and get at least a rough idea of what it is worth (though their prices are generally based on internal trades which can be off compared to tcgplayer prices).

Re: Design a Card

Regarding making Urge cards cheap, remember how R&D was confident in their ability to cost cards with Phyrexian mana? Never underestimate the value of getting 'free' mana... The problem wasn't the cost really, it was that the Phyrexian mana got around color pie restrictions. If a mono-green dec...

Re: Design a Card

Landlink - Highly problematic in how it interacts with the rules. Since the card itself is not a land it wouldn't count as your land drop for the turn and therefore you could just dump a couple of them on turn 1. I.e. these would function like Moxen that entered tapped. A better version might be: Yo...

Re: Pie in the face cube - looking for suggestions

I've looked for non-blue mill and the only real option are some of the mon-black Dimir cards from the Ravnicas. I added some white fogs, so there's at least the foundation of a mill deck in Orzhov - and that can be supplemented with an artifact or two. The main problem with mill in Simic would be th...

Re: TTC 101 - Battle for Zendikar Previews

Yeah, if I am not mistaken it is correct that Hangarback Walker has an even cmc but not because it has two x's in its cost but because in order to calculate the cmc of a "x-spell" you take the value of x to be zero, therefor Hangarback Walker has a cmc of zero which is even. That is corre...

Re: TTC 101 - Battle for Zendikar Previews

Nope. The cost reduction happens after you check whether a spell that is put on the stack can be cast. As per comprehensive rules you 1) put Hangarback walker on the stack (601.2a) 2) give a value for X (601.2b) 3) Because the CMC is even, the game returns to the state before 1) (601.2e, 601.2 and 7...

You might want to move your list to cubetutor - it has tags as well, but being able to have people do test drafts and checking which cards get picked and which didn't is helpful and the color coding for the tags is a neat option: http://www.cubetutor.com/viewcube/36897 has the current status of my P...

Re: Design a Card

Transforming to change what color it produces fits with an unstable world, but one that is more about change than decay. Well, one of the effects is that you need to tap for colorless mana to change the color. I think one of the interesting things about that particular design is that you basically ...

I've started building a cube with a theme of "breaks the color pie", trying to get 10 2 color archetypes to work that are generally not these colors. For instance I got a nice GR-Skies theme with 25 cards (10 each or red and green and 5 gold cards). I think I can get there with RW Reanimat...

Re: TTC - State of Highlander

Yes. The Dance triggers the Spellfists abillity, which goes on the stack on top of Dance. The Spellfist gains +1/+0 and can't be blocked, then Dance removes the can't be blocked ability and the trigger (so if you cast something afterwards it won't trigger again) and makes it base 4/4 and gives it f...
