    posted a message on Dragon Shield turquoise are kinda bad?
    The only colour that I've had a bad batch for of Dragonshield sleeves, have been Turquoise. Every other colour has been fine, just not the turquoise.

    This looks like a product they want on Wal-Mart/Toys R Us shelves, similar to Pokemon EX-boxes. These aren't (really) for established players, but for parents buying for their kids/grandkids/nephews/nieces.

    As an established player, I'm definitely considering picking up one of these. Boosters are generally full of crap, so I'm actually happy to see some really nice looking promo lands available in these, as well as the two promo creatures.

    Plus we still get three packs to enjoy opening. Kekeke
    How many are you going to buy? I'm assuming you'd want more than one of some of the lands lol.

    Just the one - I'll pick up more of the lands individually. In all honesty, that will probably just be the Swamp though!
    True true, out of all the C16 Mark Poole lands I liked the Island the most.

    Ajani Tribal here we go...Although Naya would make more sense for that, oh well.
    He was only really red right after his brother died. The rest of the time, he's been W or GW, so those would actually fit better.
    I know b, Naya was a Nacatl thing in Alara. I think the GW ones are better overall tho.


    There are only 19 mono red cats. And none of them where even connected to the naya shard. So Naya colors never made sense for Cats.
    Well Naya was the hedenistic shard, dudes getting groovy with cats in the jubgle and whatnot (cue the "in tbe jungle" song reference or something...) I personally think that Sylesnia is better for token production and life gain, and they solidified Ajani as a GW walker, which I think fits. And @themarc was right, he planeswalked away after Jazal had just died, so the red was only rage or whatever.

    Yeah but demons are usually pretty bad..



    have you seen the demons used in kaalia decks? Those demons are phenomenal

    Besides diden't you see my list it's all of the good ones.
    Those demons are good because of Kaalia's ability to cheat them in... My major point is that a lot of demons are overcosted and aren't as game ending as when they were made to be (Lord of the Pit). Granted, some demons are legit, the new one that was spoiled looks dope, but a lot of them are really not worth mana investment in edh. Also they tried to do a demon tribal-like precon in the C14 mono Black deck, which from my opinion was one of the weaker decks of the cycle. You're right, there are playable and frankly good demons for EDH, however I don't think it's a safe bet that we'll get a demon tribal.

    You realize what ixalan is resurrecting right? (Dinosaur)
    Dinosaur was on one card before the type was abandoned. It wasn't the grand creature type update that killed the dinosaurs.
    Meteorite probably did them in...

    Okay, was going to make a new post on this, but might as well slap this one under the "What's wrong with today's magic" mega-thread.

    I don't even have any other way to put this, but WTF Amonkhet and Hour of Devastation. I know standard is really not in a good place right now and people have a bad impression of magic, but even for limited and draft, if this was not Magic the Gathering and some other card game these booster boxes would be shoveling out of the door for half msrp and people would just forget they existed. I don't know if I'd go as far as saying this is as bad as age of empires to homelands, but it's got to be darn close given the number of playable cards that people will actually remember.
    With bannings, the climate of standard is in a vulnerable and uneasy place. Nothing is concrete, and whenever something becomes too dominant it gets a core csrd banned. Compounded by the lack of rotation consistency, and planned products and incentives (masterpieces, coresets, reprints etc.), I'm glad I'm an EDH player. I've been pressed with EDH fodder from Amonkhet but I can understand the loathing and frustration.

    You need Impact Tremors or Purphoros or an additional haste enabler, and that takes more set up


    Most FCP lists I've seen have 6-8 cards that win the game if they have FC, (most of which are creatures so can be cast with the FC mana) and with access to black and green, you've loads of tutors available. I really can't see how things like Xenagos (which helps kill one player - i.e. not very useful) or Vicious Shadows (which costs 7 mana) are going to be killing the table anywhere close to the speed a good FCP deck can.

    That's not to say they're bad in a "normal" Prossh list, but if you want to build that general around winning ASAP, then a dedicated Food Chain deck is superior.
    Most definitely, I play Prossh with a competetive air, and I use Vicious Shadows which is only 1 more than Prossh due to a decent ramp package. My point is bssed on the likelyhood that your deck is hated out after itbwins a few games, it's good to have a couple of contingencies in the event that your FC gets K-gripped. FC is dope but ehen somone stops your combo you need an out right. I agree 100% with you btw.

    Regal Force is great as a draw outlet after the skuilker dies. Horizon Chimera is solid with lots of draw. Blue Sun's Zenith, Mind Spring, Pull From Tomorrow and Stroke of Genius are great X draw spells.
