Re: The General Magic: The Gathering Thread

to run less than 24 lands in a standard deck you want to look at your curve and what the aim of the deck is. an aggro deck with a low curve of say 4 mana can run 20 lands but your odds of getting land in your opening hand go down significantly. i don't think i would run less than 22 even in a low cu...

Re: The General Magic: The Gathering Thread

was doing ok at fnm tonight. 2-1 going into final round and was drawn against a player known to be not very good and they were running that pain in the ass human reanimator infinite mill combo deck. i really hate losing to decks like that, any idiot can win with it. there is no skill required.

Re: MIll Refinement

Ok Mill exists as a win condition because the rules state that during a players draw step, if they have no cards in their library they lose the game. so if you mill them out and they have 0 cards they could still possibly win if they have an instant speed spell or ability that can hit your life tota...

Re: MIll Refinement

the first thing you want to do is add nephalia drownyards to your land base. you also do not want to run guildgates in a standard deck. you are only in 2 colors here so mana fixing is not really a 'major' concern. if you can replace the guildgates with either watery grave, or drowned catacomb.if you...

Re: The General Magic: The Gathering Thread

yeah i wish they just changed the legend rule and left planeswalkers alone. what makes planeswalkers interesting to me is you have to weigh the options between using their + ability and try and move towards the ultimate or use the - abilities. its a good risk/reward dynamic. the new rule destroys that

Re: The General Magic: The Gathering Thread

so this is the deck i am planning to run for the gameday. feedback welcome. the general idea is a creature heavy aggro deck where every turn whatever i play makes something else bigger. for the first few turns anyway. 4x Corpsejack menace 3 Exava Rakdos blood witch 4x Gyre Sage 3x Lotleth Troll 4x R...

Re: The General Magic: The Gathering Thread

i ran predators rapport in my creature aggro deck for a long time and not once did it help me win. i would on average gain 16+ life and still lose because you are going to use rapport when you are way behind but unless you are able to play something to deal with his threats its a waste of a card imo...

Re: The General Magic: The Gathering Thread

First impression of the rules changes: I'm not sure how I feel about the Legendary change. I want to see how it works out. It does move that rule closer the way that I'd design it (not that that way it best), in that in my version, the most recent version to come into play trumps all others (as leg...

Re: The General Magic: The Gathering Thread

i like the legendary rule change. too many times have i taken a huge tempo hit because my opponent has the same legendary creature and he plays his as a removal spell to kill mine. i dont like that. i think this will make games more fun. the indestructible changes make sense too. the sideboard chang...

went 2-2 at fnm tonight and missed out on prizes by 1 point. easily won my 1st 2 games 2-0 and was feeling really good as it was the first time running this deck and it was even missing some key cards and shocks. lost 3rd match by a long way, and only narrowly lost 4th game and would have won but ha...
