Re: Creating an evolve deck: Help Wanted

because you want to be getting a creature on board every turn with this deck you are weak against control. so i would remove the burst of strength and replace with savage summoning. you get your +1+1 counter but it enters the battlefield with it already on so you have a higher chance of evolving mor...

Re: The General Magic: The Gathering Thread

so got a PTQ this weekend and testing various builds of my jund deck, trying to tweak where i can. do you guys think there is enough value in running 2-3 cavern of souls main deck when the popular control deck right now U/W/R flash runs more removal like turn//burn in place of straight up counters. ...

Re: Bad Habits

A habit I used to have, and I see a lot of players do it, is checking the next few cards when they mulligan. Either your hand is good enough, and you should keep it, or it wasn't and your should mulligan. Checking the next card can only throw off your decision making. As Graham would say, it will m...

Re: Knightmare! Oh, nasty!

well i didn't mean just Skyrim, but its an example of how kids have access to games today with big detailed words and characters. i just don't see Knightmare making a splash today.

Re: Knightmare! Oh, nasty!

i cannot stress how much i adored this show as a kid. my love of rpgs and fantasy worlds can be traced back to that show. i dont think it would work today though. in the 80s the World of knightmare was so much bigger and detailed than what kids could play at home. i dont see kids getting excited ove...

Re: The General Magic: The Gathering Thread

yeah Cavern of Souls was a late addition as i was getting killed by control decks during testing. the main reason for Cavern was in game 1 if i run into control i can use it to get whatever is in my hand in play. particularly mindsparker to make them not want to counter all my other stuff. also make...

Re: The General Magic: The Gathering Thread

What would a Dack Fayden planeswalker actually do, anyway? "Some cost: Put a token onto the battlefield that is a copy of target artifact an opponent controls"? Cast spells from your opponent's graveyard, maybe? Seems pretty narrow... dack Fayden seems to be the clear favorite for the las...

Re: The General Magic: The Gathering Thread

been doing some testing with m14 cards in standard and fiendslayer paladin is seeing play. for a jund deck like mine whose removal is useless against fiendslayer paladin do you think shadowborn demon is an acceptable answer in the SB for him. so at worst its 3BB removal. seeing a lot of strategies ...
