Re: Standard Discussion

One other Con with Evolving Wilds is it doesn't fetch the new duals, if you happen to have any.

You could add Opulent Palace even if you don't care about green mana.

I have no idea about ratios unfortunately. :-(

Re: Battle for Zendikar Nicknames

My suggestions: Drana, Liberator of Malakir - Peter Pan (is traditionally played by a woman, leads the Lost Boys, flies, and sprinkles friends with Pixie Dust) Coastal Discovery - She sells spells by the seashore. Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper - [Dethklok] Awaken Awaken Awaken Awaken [/Dethklok] and 2-part...

Re: Standard Discussion

Hey folks, I've been running this CoCo Elves deck for the last few months and am looking for suggestions on how to keep it playable past rotation. Specifically, I don't know what to do about the loss of Reclamation Sage and Chord of Calling. Any advice for those, or any other rotating card would be...

Re: Bbattle for Zendikar Prerelease

I didn't pull anything super interesting sadly. Played bant ally converge in event 1 and grixis eldrazi in event 2. Went 3-1 in both events. I did have two cool plays though. Game 3 of round 4 of event 1 I played tajuru warcaller followed by unified front for 4 ally tokens, giving my team +8/+8 and ...

Re: Standard Discussion

I'm not sure the Leopard is great on defense though, since it's mainly going to be pumped on your turn. Glade Watcher from Dragons is actually an elemental if you're looking for an early blocker that's in theme. Anyway, it's an interesting deck idea. Regarding your question about removal which I apo...

Re: Standard Discussion

http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/the-rage-of-the-roil/ Similarly, I'd like some advice on where to put in some kind of removal in this deck. Is this a ramp deck or a landfall deck? You've got several creatures like Grove Rumbler that make sense in a landfall/Omnath deck, but if you're ramping then so...

Re: The Magic Venting Thread

Feeling super frustrated with the game after Origins game day. Lost in the finals to RDW after that player got round 1 bye and pair downs while I had to play top seed each round and scrabble to the finals and then I lose because my deck won't cough up a good hand or more than a couple lands. I got w...

Re: Standard Discussion

So I plan on doing Game Day just to play a deck that I love the idea of. Sadly I can't play Mono-red Goblins because I doubt people will have the Rabbles and Piles I need for it. So I built this pile of Abzan Dirt. I have no real idea what I'm doing here, I just like Eidonlon, Grim Guardian and Sta...

Re: Standard Discussion

My thought with WW and all the renown creatures was to splash blue for Thassa or use Rogue's Passage to make sure you can connect. Thassa is cheaper and the scry is useful but Rogue's Passage keeps you mono-white. I do like that they have a Savannah Lion for every occasion. Soldier of the Pantheon f...

Re: Standard Discussion

Scuttling Doom Engine is pretty cheap (I think under $0.50) and with the convoke a 6 mana 6/6 artifact creature might be a good top end for your deck and give you something that can fight the Rhinos. I'm also surprised no Shrapnel Blast. For an aggressive deck it's a good finisher and it's a decent ...

Re: Standard Discussion

I think it's a combination of mana cost and the competition. 5 is a lot and worst case scenario it dies immediately and you've gained one life. Icefall is harder to remove, thunderbreak bolts the opponent, ojutai protects himself, dromoka protects herself on your turn, silumgar is hexproof or steals...

Re: Standard Discussion

I agree with the mana cost concern. I mainly like profaner because it is one sided, while wave bounces your own master of waves tokens.

Re: Standard Discussion

I wonder if Profaner of the Dead is good anti-Piledriver tech for the Blue Devotion deck. Kills all the goblin tokens and bounces all their creatures even on its own and ignores the pro-blue from Piledriver.

What's you guys' opinion on Molten Vortex in mono red goblins? square1: I really hope the 'thopter deck happens, there is the potential for hilarious amounts of token generation & card draw going on. And I actually think that Whirler Rogue might be overall better than Master of Waves, (when did...

I've got a mono red build that I'm considering putting together for Origins Standard, but I'm not entirely convinced that I've got it well-tuned. I've not been able to test this against any other decks, but multiple runs at goldfishing it point to turn 5 kills (against an empty board, so probably a...

You are not wrong about graveyard recursion showing up more, but I think you may be overestimating it a bit. Both of your ideas look sweet, but in my opinion the Temur deck seems better. I don't know how competetive you want to be, but you may want to consider swapping Yasova for Savage Knuckle...

So I've been thinking of trying Game Day for the first time after Magic Origins, but it's been a real struggle to figure out how to beat the current meta and how that'll shift once the new cards come out.

Your deck looks cool, the +1/+1 counters shenanigangs decks always amazed me. You have a lot of cards in your sideboard for the RG ramp matchup, maybe you should move some of them to the mainboard if it's a popular deck in your meta? Thanks! I'm considering moving the Hidden Dragonslayers to main. ...

Re: TTC 76 - More DTK Previews & Tiny Leaders

Looking back, Sarkhan Unbroken is actually a wealth of flavor. My interpretation was that he's tapping into the dragon tempests Ugin creates, so, tapping in a little gives creative energy, a bit more creates one dragon, and fully unleashing the tempest brings out all the dragons.
