Re: Standard on a budget - No deck for gameday

I've got a couple of things that could be good on a budget, though probably not T1: 1) A RW Arcbond deck. The basic idea is to play cheap white lifelink creatures, some indestructability effects, some burn and Arcbond. This should be decent against most midrange and aggro decks and has a nuts matchu...

Re: Dragons of Tarkir Prerelease

Aggro decks tend to suffer in sealed. You never get your deck as fast as you would in draft and there are a lot of bombs you can't deal with going around. Some of the cheap removal suffers as well, how good were twin bolt and defeat? Sometimes you get a pool that doesn't allow you to build anything ...

Re: Dragons of Tarkir Prerelease

I managed to oversleep and missed the prerelease I wanted to attend. The store offers a second prerelease and a parallel 2HG sealed, which tends to be a lot of fun. I get there and my usual 2HG partner has partnered up with somebody else for the event. So I wander the story trying to find somebody a...

Re: Where to go for "noob" information

Hmm, it seems you and your brother are sharing a Deckbuilders Toolkit. Now, I think a better place to start would have been a clashpack or duel decks (both of which have balanced Decks that help you get the hang of the game and showcase different styles of play), or the M15 sample decks, which you c...

Re: So that just happened (funny MTG stories)

After burning the midnight oil at work I overslept for my A:NR tournament today. But I had discussed some trades with a friend and went to my FLGS anyway. Since I mainly play limited and he was up for it we decided to do a sealed and just went for a nice mix of recent sets, basically Theors block+RT...

Re: Mono red challenge

Tough in standard, though Bearer of the Heavens+Soul of New Phyrexia gives you a really big threat. The main issue is ramping, because you need a lot of mana and Generator Servant is your only real option there. 4xAnger of the Gods is almost a given and you want to add some additional burn 4x Perilo...

Re: TTC - FNM Changes and Q&A

But that's precisely why the banners aren't that bad. You want to hit 5 mana early for the scary morphs. If you have a couple of 2-drops they get better, because you can play your 2 before your opponent plays their morph and you can put down the banner and another 2-drop on turn 4 after playing your...

The Postmodern format

Since Modern is defined by the shift in card frame in 8th Edition. It therefore stands to reason that the shift in card frame with M15 should also be the demarcation line for a semi-eternal format and postmodern seems like a decent moniker. Postmodern will never be equivalent to a standard environme...

Re: Khans of Tarkir Speculation

Since the block isn't wedges, I'd expect things to go the opposite direction from what it took in Shards (where it went progressively towards 4 and 5 colors). So I'd suspect the small set to reduce the Clans to enemy color pairs and end in the second large set with a single color identity. That woul...

Re: Khans of Tarkir Speculation

Richard Garfield at some point designed a card type that worked like equipment for lands. I could see that representing defensive structures - either animating lands into defenders, or giving static boni. A lot of speculation goes into this being the wedge set, i.e. Bizarralara, but there's little i...

Re: Duels 2015

Some notes: The premium cards are semi-random. Not only do you never get cards you can't use, providing a cap for "unlock everything", but the ones you do get are predominantly in the colors you pick at the atart of the game. So think pre-seeded prerelease pack here. You also got one pack ...

I went 3-3-0 on my prerelease. I picked red, mainly because I felt it was the deepest color and opened a pretty insane pool for an agressive deck. 2 Inferno Fists, 2 Generator Servants, 2 Goblin Rabblemasters. I had 18 very solid red cards and a curve that pretty much ended on 3 mana (3 1-drops, 7 2...
