Re: Standard Discussion

@square1: that Jund deck is terrifying, the only thing that concerns me is the manabase: you have more red sources but fewer red cards - I know that the "mutual friend" of three colours is always going to be the heaviest with the current fixing, but with double castings in both black and ...

http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/today-we ... dence-day/ I made this deck originally as a clue based deck, then as a human tribal deck when I realized that mirror mockery on a thalia's lieutenant is amazing, but now I realize that the daring sleuth is nearly useless without more clue tokens, so I wan...

Re: Eldritch Moon

Between the Nahiri connection, the gathered mana, and the weird tentacle-ly stuff showing up in some cards, it's almost certainly Emrakul. That said, I'm hoping my friend is right and Nahiri's summoning Marit Lage. That'd be delightful. Also, for a "mind mage extraordinaire" Jace is sure g...

Magic at PAX East 2016

I haven't seen anything from the LRR crew saying they'd be coming this year, but regardless hopefully other people will be going. :-) I pulled together a draft set of my favorite limited block, Invasion/ Planeshift/ Apocalypse, if anyone's interested in sharing a bit of nostalgia with me. Hopefully ...

Re: Standard Discussion

I built my own version of the Clue deck, UG splashing W for Reflector Mage. I'm going for more of a beatdown combo, using Confront the Unknown as a replacement for Aspect of Hydra to make a lethal Den Protector or Erdwal Illuminator. Illuminator plus ongoing investigation produces clues incredibly q...

Re: SoI Prerelease - How'd You Do?

Went to two Saturday events. Went 1-2 drop playing GB werewolves in the first event and 3-0-1 with RB madness/delirium in my second event. Got to play with both Ever After and Seasons Past in the first event, which were both quite fun, but the deck didn't have much removal, so got stomped by Sorin a...

One other thing that supports that theory is the red vine-like things in the bottom of Warped Landscape look a lot like the emerging tentacles in Ancient Stirrings:

Re: Standard Discussion

There's already a dozen decks I want to make going forward into SoI, but U/W spirits is exactly the kind of annoying little tempo deck I love to play: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/peppers-ghost/ That is a fantastic deck name.

Confront the Unknown recalls Aspect of Hydra and could be powerful.

Re: Modern Deck Brewing Advice

Hi! Welcome back to the game :) Modern advice is going to largely hinge on whether Eldrazi are still the menace they currently are after the next B&R review. That said, your deck looks interesting, and I like the idea of trying to get landfall to work. It seems like Omnath is kind of incidental ...

Re: The General Magic: The Gathering Thread

Investigate appears to be a U/W mechanic so far, while Madness appears to be R/B for the most part, at least in the cards we've seen. I'm guessing madness is going to be more of an aggro hellbent strategy. That said, we've only seen a small fraction of the set, so maybe the mechanics will turn out t...

Re: The General Magic: The Gathering Thread

Looks like we're getting the enemy color lands in SOI. Between them, the rare duals from bfz, evolving wilds, and the man lands, there's a decent amount of fixing.

Re: Post Modern format speculation, is it a format? (Crapsho

the simplest answer would be "Standard" Alternatively, given post modernism's notions of radical pluralism, maybe its a format where every card in your deck has to come from a different set, or your sideboard includes two other decks and you can never play the same deck twice in a match. ...
