Re: The General Magic: The Gathering Thread

We've seen Madness in 3 colours so far, Blue, Black and red. But discard sources will probably be in all colours. I think it's a way to ensure you won't have an empty hand extremely quickly. Mechanically, Delirium, Madness and Investigate all work pretty well together, or it seems that way to me. Ma...

Re: The General Magic: The Gathering Thread

So last night, I just figured out why Investigate is a thing mechanics wise. It's to stop the Madness decks from running out of gas due to you discarding cards a lot.

Re: The Magic Venting Thread

If memory serves, you're Scottish right? As far as I know, the major cities have decent-sized magic communities, are you too rural/transportless to realistically try your luck elsewhere? I feel your pain though, my LGS's commander clique, whilst thankfully not dicks, play at a much higher power lev...

Re: The Magic Venting Thread

Sadly, they refuse to play any other format. They want to play Commander and Commander only. If anyone had an Arch-enemy deck, I'd be willing to play it but in all honesty, I'd rather just try and play a normal game of Multiplayer Magic where it's the threat that's the target, not me.

Re: The Magic Venting Thread

So I have a major problem. I want to play Magic, but the experience has become so miserable due to two people that it's just no fun whatsoever. Any deck I build is either to weak to stand a chance (and I seem to be the main target in any given game I play, even if I'm not winning) or powerful enough...

Re: Sorceror

As a format, this would either be really fun or really not fun. I can just imagine how busted Monastery Mentor and other prowess creatures would be in this format. Jeskai just seems like the clear choice for it. I'd try it, but I think there's a reason I've only just heard of it.

Re: The Magic Venting Thread

So last nights Commander night was one of the worst I've had in a while. After several games of not being allowed to do anything because of the resident control player, I decide to play my mono-black Pox deck. It was the only deck I had that could keep up with my opponents decks (Jenara counters/ Vo...

Re: Standard Discussion

There was a sea of Abzan X at mine. Jaces and I assume Rhinos all day. I never heard or saw any one cast one. I saw some other decks, including two Zada decks. One Izzet, one Grixis. Makes me think it could work. I played B/R Eldrazi Aggro and went 2/2, placing 8th out of 14. Kinda salty that yet ag...

Re: Commander/EDH Deck Talk

After a quick search, I've found 8 Legendary Blue/ Green Legendary Creatures. There are 3 I feel would suit the deck you're going for. The first is Experiment Kraj, who doesn't really have any synergies with your theme, but is a big Ooze Mutant, which is the closest you can get to a Kraken or simila...

Re: Standard Discussion

Expedite is drawing me some more cards and can allow for some more insanity and could mean I win games out of nowhere. I might play 3 of it and 3 Slips. They were both the draw to playing a Zada deck.

I think Mono Red might be a stronger version. Here's the list http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/a-mess-3/ All help is appreciated. ...

Re: Magic the Gathering: Ask a Judge

How do Zada and modal spells work. For example, say I target Zada with Brutal Expulsion and I have five other creatures. Do I get to choose the targets for the new Expulsions, and do I get to pick both modes on the copies?

Re: The General Magic: The Gathering Thread

Like Cohort is a very different mechanic from Rally. I don't think they work together at all. I think cohort is actually just bad. At least in limited. Between 3 prereleases, a draft and another sealed event today, I haven't seen a single person use cohort. I'm not exaggerating, I have seen 0 playe...

Re: Standard Discussion

Titantic Growth won't allow me to play more land. The point is I want to draw a bunch of cards with Slip and Expedite, then use Swell to get more land out and keep the crazy train going. I feel like it could make the deck play itself on a turn every once in a while.

Re: The General Magic: The Gathering Thread

So I played a 6 boosters of Oath sealed event with four players yesterday, and it was pretty interesting. It was my first time playing with Oath in any capacity, and I enjoyed it. It was actually pretty fast, which is not how I think actual limited with it will be. It feels like BFZ would make the f...

I want to try and keep the cost of the deck down, so Den Protectors, Deathmists, Nissas and Whisperwoonds are out. I'll play Big Knucks if I can get some, but I haven't seen him in a long time. I don't know about play anything with a double colour cost like Caller of the Hunt. Right now the cards I ...

Re: Standard Discussion

So I'm currently brewing a Temur Zada deck and I'm wondering, what else in green should I play that isn't Yasova or Swell of Growth. I've no yet finalised the list, but it seems like U/R Zada with some green for value. Any thoughts?

Re: Oath of the Goatwatch Spoilers

I love Expedite. It's going to make me build Mono-Red tokens with Zada. With a perfect start, you draw seven on turn 5 and probably win. I might splash green for Swell of Growth so I can play all the land I rip from top of deck.

Re: Commander/EDH Deck Talk

So I've been having trouble with my Alesha commander deck. It has a bunch of sweet cards that work with her, but it just doesn't work. I've been playing about with making it ally tribal, but I have a 5-colour version of that. What do I do?

Re: Commander/EDH Deck Talk

So I've altered was is very quickly becoming my favourite deck to play. I've put a new commander in and upgraded it a little. What do you think now? It should probably be Black/ Green now, but mono black is waaaaaay too fun already. tappedout.net/mtg-decks/a-plague-a-pustule/

Re: Commander/EDH Deck Talk

I think I have a major problem. I got a copy of Eron the Relentless and now I'm going to build a fifth Mono-red deck. Anyone else build lots of decks with the same colour combination? Also I swear mono-red has a lot of different play styles in this format.

Fantome: Good point on the rats. I know I'll play Pack Rats when I can get another one, but for now I won't try any. I'm not sure if I still want to play Patron as commander because I might shift the Commander to Sheoldred. I still have to put Bad Moon and Rise From the Dark Realms in the deck too. ...
