Re: Standard Discussion

@cheetos have you considered adding some form of removal like Utter End to your deck? It could come in handy when dealing with noncreature permanents. On the other note - I just freaking love the current standard meta. With so many cards legal in format before BFZ there are so many possibilities. An...

Re: The General Magic: The Gathering Thread

The "I'll play what you're playing" deck seems cool :D It may be exactly what I'm looking for and I'll finally get to play Blatant Thievery, Bribery, Notion Thief, and Villainous Wealth in one deck. Thanks Atifexe :D

Re: The General Magic: The Gathering Thread

I think I need an intervention. My inner Spike became so dominant I can no longer build more casual decks that aren't focused only on winning. Most of the time I play in tournaments and it doesn't bother me, but in a couple days I'm going to a convention and would like to have a couple decks that ar...

Good Day Sir!
Have you considered adding Savage Ventmaw and Aggravated Assault to your deck for infinite face-smashing?

Re: Standard Discussion

GOBLINS HYYYPEEE! If control gets significantly worse in standard I may come back to my goblin roots. Have you tested playing with any number of the Obelisks of Urd in the mainboard? Is the 2-drop slot too crowded for adding Mardu Scouts? You may want to find place for Roast in the Sideboard to deal...

Re: Standard Discussion

You are not wrong about graveyard recursion showing up more, but I think you may be overestimating it a bit. Both of your ideas look sweet, but in my opinion the Temur deck seems better. I don't know how competetive you want to be, but you may want to consider swapping Yasova for Savage Knuckleblade...

Yeah, Hallowed Moonlight seems like a good sideboard card, it's not only good against CoCo and Grishoalbrand but it also stops Splinter Twin.

I tend to be a hardcore-casual in Magic, meaning that I play competetive decks, but only the ones I have fun playing. And I freaking lo...

Lately I didn't really have time to visit the forums. Today I listened to the Twitch recording that Lord Hosk posted of Paul singing and just started crying. I thought that things were getting better in my head, but it seems that I was wrong.

I'm so hyped for this new black sweeper - Languish . It will fit perfectly in my Espere Dragons deck, between Drown in Sorrow and Crux of Fate. For 4 mana it will almost always kill everything my opponent deployed up to turn 4. EDIT: Oh, and also Clash of Wills ? Thank you WotC, you succesfully brou...

Re: Magic the Gathering: Ask a Judge

Creatures with double-strike deal both first strike damage and normal damage. If they don't have trample and they kill the blocking creature with first strike damage, the normal damage won't be assigned to the defending player. But if they have trample the excess damage will go to the defending play...

Re: Magnum Rewatch Ep 20 - The Woman on the Beach

Can't believe that Graham missed the opportunity to make a Zoo Race reference, when Sara's "ghost" was running away from Magnum. RACE ME MAGNUM, RACE ME AROUND THE GREENHOUSE. I really enjoy the whole series, I'm planning to buy a DVD set of Magnum as soon as I can afford it.

Re: Standard Discussion

Your deck looks cool, the +1/+1 counters shenanigangs decks always amazed me. You have a lot of cards in your sideboard for the RG ramp matchup, maybe you should move some of them to the mainboard if it's a popular deck in your meta?

I'm starting to have problems finding people to play EDH with. At the regular EDH nights at my LGS there are almost only people with stupidly expensive decks I can't compete with unless I spend a couple hundred bucks to buy Force of Will, Mana Crypt and other cards like that. And when I try to play ...

Re: Commander/EDH Deck Talk

Oh man, I always wanted to play Skittles in EDH as a general, he looks so cool and is so powerful, but in a 4-player pod, other players would always team up against me. I think it's much better if you are playing 1v1.
