    Maybe the OP could change their thread title to something which better explains their intent of the thread.

    I find MTGS basically unusable on mobile now and a lot of my browsing happened on my phone. Reddit still has a terrible format for actual discussion but I can at least read it.

    But.... it's Reddit o.0

    I just saw something on reddit about Isochron Scepter + pump spells and now I'd really like to have Berserk on a stick.

    Why were you on Reddit?

    What you want is for Wizards to make a variant designed for competitive play. If you use the search feature on this forum you will find a number of users who have attempted to make competitive ban lists.

    Edit: nathed.

    How is any of that relevant? I'm proposing a banlist which I propose to be better than what we have currently, do you disagree in any particular instance?

    What you're not understanding or refusing to accept is that the ban list isn't designed for the way in which you want to play. Saying you list is better is like, just your opinion, man.
    If you're offended by the name, then I shall let it be known that this is just a cheeky joke, not meant to be taken seriously.

    It's still flaming.

    In all your time working on this ban list did you ever take the time to learn who runs Commander or why they tailored their ban list the way they did? (Spoiler alert: it's not Wizards and it's not for competitive play)

    Weird. I wonder what it was we were doing in those eight years prior to that during RC meetings.

    Getting drunk on Sheldon's wine, obviously. Otherwise you would remember what you were doing.

    Commander legality is by card name. You can only have one version of Very Cryptic Command, so choose wisely. You can have all the Killbots.

    Since I'm limited to only one VCC, can I take multiple ones and cut them up and splice them into the four modes I want?

    Ok I see what you're saying about Horobi. I think it goes against the political spirit of the deck as well as leaves me open to having it used against me, but it's more synergetic than I initially thought. Not interested in infinite or near infinite combos though.

    I basiclly joined just to figure osmething out,that i read on a forum that I'm a memeber of.

    During Gencon (Which I was unable to attend due to various reasons) there was appearently a fire alarm that went off casuing folks to leave. And from what the admin on that other forum that i mentioend above has stated he blames it on the MTG community:-/

    This doesn't seem right to me, I don't think that MTG players would steal;if they do,anything from a game thats not Magic...


    so,my question is why would a player of a different think that a whole other group of players stole stuff:confused:



    My first post is from two years before I joined.

    I'm lost, do you mean that she can only wish for cards that are banned in the format you're currently playing?

    Never mind, once again he was answering a Blogatog question poorly because he doesn't understand Commander. She works as intended, only in Commander "as intended" means:

    Phyrexian Black Mana Phyrexian Black Mana Phyrexian Black Mana Phyrexian Black Mana : Do nothing

    Thanks for the replies!

    How about ways to speed up the process of adding bounty counters or ways to generate more? Running Strionic Resonator means that during your upkeep you can pay 2, tap it, and be able to have Mathas give 2 bounty counters instead of 1. You can also run Illusionist's Bracers so that Bounty Hunter can give 2 bounty counters or kill two creatures with bounty counters. Rings of Brighthearth will also copy Bounty Hunter's ability. Thornbite Staff will also make Bounty Hunter untap whenever a creature dies, so you can then use its ability all over again.

    Strionic Resonator is absolutely a card I would run, but I adhere to a singleton rule amongst my decks and it is currently in Yidris. If it wasn't for that self-imposed restriction I would absolutely run it. The other cards I am hesitant about because they are mostly to completely dead without Bounty Hunter in play (and I'll remind you that his ability to put bounty counters doesn't work with Mathas's ability).

    Out of curiosity, how does this deck typically win?

    Also, would Horobi, Death's Wail be useful for this deck (essentially allowing Mathias to shoot down a creature on each turn)? Would some pillow fort cards be useful or the Death Pits of Rath combos?

    Hopefully by letting your opponents kill each other, and then you sneaking in the last bit of damage Grin I run a fair number of traditional and nontraditional pillowfort cards which deter attacking, so I tend to not get swung on very often. I haven't played magic in over a month so I honestly can't recall my win rate with the deck. It's not very high because I didn't build it to be as strong as it could.

    Regarding the two cards mentioned, Horobi is a nonbo I believe because Mathas would trigger, and targeting would trigger Horobi, which would kill the creature, and then Mathas' ability would attempt to resolve and fizzle. Death Pits is decent, but I would keep an eye on it if you ran it. You'll need a way to protect creatures, and it will most likely clog up the board because no one would attack.
