Re: The Limited thread

Did a simulated draft on TappedOut with several strangers. Click here for the deck I built. There was a surprising amount of white going around. Got lucky in Pack 3, with Pick 1 being Avacyn and and Pick 2 being Resolute Archangel. Any and all feedback would be appreciated.

Re: Magic the Gathering: Ask a Judge

To be clear, in the case of Natural Affinity and Polymorphist's Jest, they're still technically lands, but until end of turn they do not tap for mana.

Re: A Challenge

Alright, so here's my attempt at a white token race deck: First and foremost, let's pick a focus for the deck. I'm thinking enchantments, for a later interaction: 2x Heliod, God of the Sun 4x God-Favored General And, of course, the logical card to combine with those: 4x Ajani's Chosen Of course, God...

Re: A Challenge

So, no actual testing has occurred yet - responsibilities like making dinner kind of took over. That said, these are all really interesting ideas. Thank you everyone for contributing, and a special thanks to Volafortis for the blue deck! Currently, there are two colours that haven't been addressed: ...

Re: A Challenge

I like the suggestions so far! That said, the estimated price tag on the deck you suggested, tamaness, is really really steep. I figured it'd be up there, but had guessed it'd be lower. :P Fortunately, I have a number of the cards already, so it should be possible to bring the cost down a touch. A c...

Re: A Challenge

The goal is most definitely a token generating deck, rather than another mechanic. =)

A Challenge

To all aspiring and experienced deckbuilders, I have a challenge for you. My girlfriend has a fantastic colourless Myr deck. Its mana base, predictably, is a full playset of Urzatron, Cloudpost, and Glimmerpost. It has Galvanizer, Palladium, Turbine, Matrix, Battlesphere, Lodestone... Everything you...

Re: The Limited thread

Well, in that case, there's really no reason to hang onto the boosters. They don't work in draft formats, after all.

Re: The Limited thread

I'm just thinking that I can't afford any tickets right now, so opening them might give me the tickets necessary to play in a draft. I have enough New Player Points remaining to guarantee myself another draft set even if I lose every match, since just entering an event is enough to get you a pack ri...

Re: Loading Ready Fan Draft.

I did spectacularly in the prerelease event. Went 4-0, though a couple of the match ups did give me some trouble. Played against Lord Hosk in the first round, and didn't recognize any of the other usernames (though if memory serves, my third round opponent TTC'd the final game). I picked Green for m...

Played an M15 New Player phantom draft earlier today, to get me into the mindset for the Fan Sealed event later today. Deck image: http://i.imgur.com/RJuy5KO.png P1P1 was Soul of Zendikar, P2P2 Garruk, Apex Predator, and P3P1 the second Garruk. I'd initially been looking at a green red deck, but the...

Re: Khans of Tarkir Speculation

The article I linked gives a brief blurb on each currently active planeswalker, including Tezzeret. Apparently, Bolas recalled him from Mirrodin and gave him another task after he became obsessed with the Phyrexian process.That doesn't mean he won't try to do something with the Phyrexians, only that...

Re: M15 Prerelease Experiences

I lost a grand total of four games today, out of the twelve that I played. Overall, I went 4-1, and due to buses I left before the last round had totally finished. Nabbed 12 packs as a prize. Pretty good for the first prerelease I've ever attended, I think. Of my losses, one was due to effective rem...

Re: The M15 Super Special Awesome Spoiler Thread!

Hmm... Maybe. I hadn't actually thought of the possibility of anyone just tossing the card; to me, it seems like an incredible keepsake. I'm pretty much inclined to take every one anyone decides they don't want. With that said, because the local game store doesn't have a lot of space, they're rentin...

Re: The M15 Super Special Awesome Spoiler Thread!

After one glance at that link, I know I want that Clash pack. So badly, in fact, that I'm debating skipping the M15 prerelease so I can spend the money on the pack instead. Except I really want the oversized Garruk... Dag nabbit. Now I don't know what to do.

I like Doubletree. I think it works really well with Nissa, if nothing else. I will say, though, that a blue equivalent would be awesome in a Brago commander deck. Hmm... Maybe I have to build a Bant Tokens deck.

Re: The M15 Super Special Awesome Spoiler Thread!

As it's worded, The Chain Veil needs to be activated between each extra Planeswalker ability activation it grants. It doesn't add another activation that turn, it just resets whether or not the game says they've used an ability that turn.

Re: The M15 Super Special Awesome Spoiler Thread!

I almost didn't notice Overwhelm - I thought it was Overrun at first. That one got pulled from my Thallid deck in favor of Overrun a loooong time ago. Adding Convoke is not nearly compensation for the loss of Trample, especially with the increased mana cost.

Re: The M15 Super Special Awesome Spoiler Thread!

I've said it elsewhere too, and I'm actually kind of disappointed in this incarnation of Garruk. I'm a fan of 'arms race' situations, with both players doing their very best to get their planeswalker to fire their ultimate before the other can. The new Garruk doesn't really lend himself to that, eve...

Re: Fblthp, planeswalker

I think the problem with making the emblem legendary is that emblems don't have names. They don't even have types. Literally the only thing on the emblem as far as the rules are concerned is the text put there by the ability that created it. If your goal is to limit it to one card drawn from him, ma...
