Re: Tiny Leaders

I might have already written up a list for Liliana, Heretical Healer. Sadly, TappedOut won't let me use cards from Magic Origins.

I am a true Johnny who just loves to brew up decks. (He says, with his list being focused on Rack effects.)

Re: The Limited thread

I think it's mostly because there's so few megamorphs that fit the Rule of 5 that Khans block had. Meanwhile, there's a bevvy of 2/1s with megamorph that happily trade with all the pikers and bears in the format, if you want to waste your mana on that. 6 is the new 5, really. And 6 is a lot less sca...

Re: TTC 80 - Commander Rules & DTK Preview Draft

So, someone on reddit recently linked to an interesting article about how Nintendo's games follow Mark Rosewater's theory of Lenticular Design , particularly Smash Bros. And that got me thinking of Alex's whole "Commander is like Smash Bros." comment. And the more I think of it, the more t...

Re: Loading Ready Fan Draft.

Out goes Hand, Coat, Glee, and Awakening. In goes Scribe, Sidisi's Faithful, Sight Beyond Sight, and... Temporal Trespass? This doesn't help me know why I should remove those specific cards, or why I should add in those other cards. I can surmise that I remove the first four because they're the bla...

Re: Loading Ready Fan Draft.

For the sealed pool, I think your issue was trying to go a solid 3 colors without any fixing. Splashing black for the Necromaster and the Reach is fine, but that Zephyr Scribe in the board sticks out like a sore thumb. So, yeah. Out goes Hand, Coat, Glee, and Awakening. In goes Scribe, Sidisi's Fait...

Re: Tiny Leaders

I think 17 lands is good for a dumb hyper-aggro mono-colored deck like my Zurgo RDW, but I really think most decks should be have 1 or 2 more lands.

Re: How to start Magic-ing on a budget?

I know you're asking for starting on a budget, but one thing I've found helpful as a long timer on a tight budget is PucaTrade. I have a lot of draft chaff. It's hard to unload that stuff. But I'm always surprised about the number of people on PucaTrade who will happily take those junk rares off my ...

Re: Tiny Leaders

Just ordered (well, if you call PucaTrade "ordering") the cards for my first Tiny Leaders deck. Went with the old school of thought that mono-red is playable in any format, and built what I called Zurgo Deck Wins . I've been arguing over using Teetering Peaks and Smoldering Spires. Having ...

Re: Commander/EDH Deck Talk

I really don't like this change or the reasoning behind it. Y'know what encourages tutors? Being a 100-card singleton format. Not tucking. You know what really feels bad? Not having answers to the decks the Spiky players bring, since all that Condemn is doing now is just putting Zur back in the Comm...

Re: (Non-Official) Official Dragons of Tarkir Spoiler Thread

Scion combo has always been a huge thing in EDH. Early MtGO Commander was infested with it and Zur. It's power is largely being able to transform into a dragon that can OHKO a player given enough mana (YAY, Dragon Tyrant) while being able to shift into one of the Kamigawa dragons if removal was poin...

Loving how all the dragon leaders are type "Elder Dragon" to fit perfectly with how people will probably be using them in a certain constructed format. Except for you, Kolaghan. Really? I think granting all your guys haste on a 6/5 flying haste guy seems like a fine commander. So one of h...

Re: Is it possible to make a budget modern deck?

Treasure... Infestation. It's the budget combo deck no one expects. Mulligan until you draw both Treasure Hunt and Zombie Infestation. Play Infestation. Next turn, play Treasure Hunt. Your deck, besides those two cards, is nothing but land. Make all the zambies. (At EoT, preferably, to avoid a Pyroc...

Re: Graham and Paul Let's Play

No one in the Steam reviews have really said anything about differences, in spite of it being called the Gold Version. But I do remember a few people being disappointed that they stopped when they did, since apparently the game opens up after that point.

I'm extremely tempted to purchase the Steam version of Venetica for the sake of gifting to you guys. Though I probably shouldn't be so insistent on a revisit of that game.

Re: Commander/EDH Deck Talk

Marath Hydra midrange sounds like a delightfully silly concept. Should probably run Hardened Scales, since Marath has a kind-of-infinite combo with it. (Scales + Marath = 1, remove a counter from Marath: put 2 counters on target creature... which can be Marath)

Re: Heather's Handhelds

As good of a game Henry Hatsworth is, it's brutally hard, and the death counter would skyrocket in the second half of the game. And it might not be fun to watch the final boss just because of all the deaths. I mean... phase 1 is a literal joke boss, but phase 2... I'm pretty sure I spend at least 2 ...
