First off, I didn't draw this. I did a quick google search and found it here: http://real-warner.deviantart.com/art/Demon-tree-197975905 it reminded me of early magic sets with the semi-cheesy horror. Also I like how the thing is forming out of a tree and that's kind of a fitting way to show it's abilities going off.

Second, the only other card out there with both wither and persist is the Rendclaw Trow his abilities aren't done with commas each ability is shown in full so even though it makes the card text cluttered and tiny I did it that way. Then it hit me that there was a conversation in the TTC about how Wizards purposely doesn't do that anymore, so I thought it would be fitting to leave it in.

I agree, I'd definitely love some tips on how fast the format is, I want to build a deck but I have no idea what to do with the curve so some tips there would be much appreciated

In my experience, Commander can be quite slow. For comparison, in Standard, if you drop a turn 1 Rakdos Cackler, that can be a real threat. In Commander, where you probably have multiple opponents, all of whom start with 40 life, a turn 1 Cackler has virtually zero impact on the board. You will definitely have time to build up to dropping some expensive bombs that really have an impact.

I just checked one of my Commander decks, and it actually has 20 creatures that cost six or more mana. Which is not to say that a low curve swarm deck couldn't also work, but as we saw in that episode of Friday Nights, someone will probably try to genocide your elves. :wink:

My idea for Unexpected Results? Primal Surge. Could you imagine if you hit? PLAY ALL THE PERMANENTS!

Rouges are the most OP creature types in the entire game of magic! Ban them all!

The reason I figured Baneful Woodfink was Blue/Green was due to the name. Baneful means to me that it brings upon the end of the opponent. The deathtouch is directly showing that, which is a green and black mechanic. He also is baneful since he lets you know your opponent's options. The wood part of the name means... well, forest to me. Fink means a stool pigeon to me... like Paul in the In The Trunk video. So he tells you all your opponents secrets.

I fully intend to post a deck list in the next few days. I want to try getting a few more additions before I finish it.

The best thing I think I'd want to hit with Unexpected Results would likely be an Akroma's Memorial or something similar. It would depend on the deck though. Omniscience would be a good choice but requires you have good cards in your hand. Primal Surge wouldn't be I feel. In green/blue you're not going to have a lot of permanants, especially since you're likely running at least 8 spells since you have the Unexpected Results and Primal Surge. Akroma's memorial makes even your tiniest creature into a threat. If you're aggro enough, Craterhoof would be good too.

Great podcast guys; been watching your videos for a long time now (I blame you guys for getting me into Magic for the first time in my life after 20 years of avoiding it) and only felt like making a forum account today. Maybe I'll post more, who knows.

Speaking of Commander, wanna help name a terrible terrible EDH deck my friends came up with after I pulled a certain guildleader from Gatecrash?


Commander:
x1 Borborygmos Enraged

Creatures:

Spells:

Lands:
x49 Forest
x49 Mountain
x1 [insert G/R dual land of some kind]


I think we need more lands.

I think the trick to that would be you have to sell it, Mull to 3 and say SERIOUSLY FINE!

then each draw step throw down the land you top deck. people will ignore you thinking you are just getting royally flooded even be a little sympathetic.

My mock up for the card. It's clearly from Shadowmoor, so I used the Shadowmoor symbol. Wanted to make it look like an actual Magic card.

I feel you will enjoying trying to name this deck because while I was drafting it I thought "I have to be in a draft with all of the LLR folks messing with me... how am I getting all these cards.

Since the podcast is called "Tap Tap CONCEDE" a fun segment idea is something like "Bad Beat of the Week", where you can relate a humourous or mind-crushingly horrible beat story - because lets face it, magic players love to tell Bad-beat stories.

Hey I was looking through the Forum to see what art people made for the baneful Woodfink thing And I was disappointed that nobody drew their own, So This is what I made: http://imgur.com/B5OV5Pr

Image

Not very good at forum post stuff so Hopefully that works. Should be able to see it at a nice size, by nice size I mean very Large. Took me Quiet a while(17 hours) to make this pretty lady. Over that time I started Forming a story behind her. She was Once a nice happy very beautiful woodland Faerie, when one day, In her adventures, in the wrong part of the forest, she was "infected" by a Flesh eating Fungus, which started growing all over her body. She blamed the forest for her affliction.

I also felt She needed a Sweet hat, For flavour. Though she Probably wont win Best dressed.

Thank You So much this was a good excuses to practice my 2d art skills been too long since I have. I hope you all enjoy it. And I expect to get those extra points for drawing it myself :p. Have a good day.

Gonna throw another deck in the 'please name my deck you funny guys' pile.

Its an annoying/fun casual/multiplayer deck designed to dick around with rule 701.8c.

Rule 701.8c. When life totals are exchanged, each player gains or loses the amount of life necessary to equal the other player’s previous life total. Replacement effects may modify these gains and losses, and triggered abilities may trigger on them.


I tried to put in enough removal and threats to make it somewhat viable, but its sole purpose is to play silly tricks by switching life totals and triggering the Rhox Faithmender or Exquisite Blood.

4x Ajani'Sunstriker
2x Blind Hunter
1x Debtors' Knell
2x Douse in Gloom
4x Exquisite Blood
2x Faceless Butcher
1x Hissing Miasma
1x Mindcrank
2x Mortify
4x Mourning Thrull
2x Pillory of the Sleepless
4x Rhox Faithmender
4x Soul Conduit
1x Souls of the Faultless
2x Unmake

2x Orzhov Basilica
10x Plains
12x Swamps

I took my creature inspiration from the Mirrodin version of the creature type Ouphe.
I like this rather vulpine feel, over the cute "gremlin" style used in other editions.
Given the rules of the card I wanted to get the dark part of sacrificing nature in order
to do his dark abilities in focus.
The colour scheme is adapted for the cards black and green casting costs, and the
art style is a bit more geared toward classical magic cards to get a more fairytale
atmosphere.

Hello! First time poster -- been enjoying the various videos a bunch, and the latest art challenge motivated me to register here.

This challenge was fun. It took me longer than I thought to choose the appearance, but once I doodled a funky mask it sort of built momentum. Maybe I'll use my other ideas for this card later, as an alternate.

I discovered through this show and your drafts that MtG could be a rather entertaining spectator sport. Maybe someday I'll try playing it.

A couple questions for you guys relating to some oooold Magic:
1: Have you guys heard of the Unglued and Unhinged sets (collectively referred to as Un, or simply identified by their silver borders)
2: If you have, what do you think of them? If you haven't, go get familiar with the two sets because they are the most hilarious tournament-illegal cards in existence.
3: Do you think Wizards should create another set in the same vein as the Un sets?

I feel like Graham (or at least cH Graham) would like Emcee and Paul would get some use out of Charm School
