May 9, 2017urweak posted a message on Cards that should be reprinted to enter the Modern card poolHas anyone mentioned Waterfront Bouncer yet? The discard outlet seems good in some cases, plus the ability to bounce dudes in such a creature heavy format would also be good. The downside is it's 1/1 body, and the prevalence of stuff like path/push.Posted in: Modern
Mar 23, 2017I have a deck that changes everything to red with Painter's Servant and then uses cards that hate on red, like Hydroblast and creatures with protection from red.Posted in: Casual & Related Formats
I would consider something like this, but naming blue. That way you have Pyroblast and other cards to directly effect his deck, but you can play vs other decks since you can make any deck blue with Servant.
This will put you well over 60 cards once you add lands. So you can keep/remove what you wish.
Mar 22, 2017Has anyone tested Squee, Goblin Nabob? With all the draw->discard spells we use, I figure we might as well turn that into card advantage. Like the old school days of Vintage, before Dredge was a mechanic, Bazaar of Baghdad was typically seen in decks along with Squee, and to good effect.Posted in: Developing Competitive (Modern)
I have been messing around with it a little, but think I need to rework the deck a little to really take advantage of it. Are there any other good draw->discard that might work well here? Does this maybe open us up to Thirst for Knowledge?
Edit: I've been thinking again about Gifts Ungiven. Possibly using a gifts package that looks something like Protean Hulk, Footsteps of the Goryo, Noxious Revival, and a flexible card of choice. Makeshift Mannequin would work for some redundancy, but you run the risk of being given Hulk and Revival with no way to discard. I think a better option is probably using Through the Breach, that way no matter what you get stuck with, you can combo. However, the real question is, can we wait till turn 5 to combo?
Mar 21, 2017I started during Ice Age (got a starter deck of Ice Age for Christmas). If I could go back, I would obviously buy a bunch of cards that have skyrocketed in price. Not to hoard them, but to actually play them. I would buy stuff like The Abyss, All Hallow's Eve and other interesting cards of that era that have skyrocketed in price. Probably just buy more cards from the first three expansion sets in general. Also, I would complete my set of dual lands. Not to hoard them, but so that I could use them today and actually play with them. Back in the day, I only bought the cards I wanted for a specific deck and my first playset of duals was Taiga because I loved playing RG. But I should have got the other ones at some point in the following years to have on hand.Posted in: Magic General
The second one would be to find more competitive Vintage events. I played Vintage at one card shop until I stopped playing around 2002, but never anywhere else. When I came back in 2008, I found more places to play. But knowing what I know now, there were a ton of spots to play Vintage back in the day. That and I would have made more competitive decks, besides playing my beloved RG deck.
Another thing would be to buy a ton of Urza's block boosters/booster boxes. I really enjoyed that block and would loved to had more memories playing with those cards in that era of magic. Just so many cool cards, but that was around the time I started losing interest in the game. Not because of the sets, just other things in life became more interesting I guess.
Finally, it would have been to actually draft the Ice Age block when Coldsnap was released. Today, it's just not worth it when you have to buy a $700+ Alliances box, plus a box of Ice Age and Coldsnap for whatever they go for these days on top of that.
Mar 20, 2017After seeing a few posts on Creatureless Oath builds, I started to develop my own take on the deck. However, I need help completing the deck because right now, I just have a few cards to use for the Oath of Druid combo.Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
The deck works by dropping Oath of Druids and allowing the trigger to resolve so that I can put my whole library into the graveyard. From that point, the combo is all based around enchantments. So I put Replenish onto of my library as the only card with Memory's Journey. From there I bring in all the enchantments in my graveyard when I cast Replenish. The core combo is really based off Opalescence. From there I can use Enduring Renewal, Omniscience, and Goblin Bombardment for infinite damage. Enchanted Evening strips everyone of their lands while Omniscience allows me to still cast spells. Cards like Concordant Crossroads allow all my Enchantment Creatures to attack the turn I resolve Replenish. Symbiotic Deployment keeps me from losing during my upkeep if the game goes past the turn I resolve Replenish.
From there, I need to make the deck functional in the turns before I can actually do the combo, or just make the deck in a way that I can still benefit from all these enchantments without actually pulling off the combo. That's where I need your help, I don't want to build a deck where I am just waiting to make it combo, I want to be able to cast the enchantments too and possibly win from the various interactions these enchantments have with one another. Is there a deck like this already out there? I think this is a bit different from an enchantress deck. Also, any recommendations for a Commander would be nice, I think the deck will end up being 5 colors.
Here is what I have so far, which isn't much.

I don't know if that means you agree with me. But the fact is, MM sees play in Hulk lists.
Mar 15, 2017If I have an Opalescence in play, will it make enchantments in my graveyard creatures so that I can return them with No Rest for the Wicked? If I can, I guess this would also mean I can return NRFTW infinitely.Posted in: Magic Rulings
Note, I can't use card tags on my phone.
Actually, you're still able to type the tags manually. Write [c] before the card name and [/c] after, with square brackets and forward slash specifically for the closing tag. -MadMage
Mar 14, 2017urweak posted a message on searching an efficient wincon for creatureless oath of druids deckNot 100% sure on the interaction with Opalesce and enchantments in graveyards. But if they are still creatures in your graveyard you could do a combo with Goblin Bombardment and No Rest for the Wicked and a few random enchantments. Or Phenax, God of Deception with hasty enchantments.Posted in: Commander (EDH)
I'll have to check the rules forum to see if this works.
Edit- That wouldn't work. However if you had Enduring Renewal and Omniscience in play you could loop enchantments and sacrifice them to Goblin Bombardment. Make it instant speed with Leyline of Anticipation.
Mar 14, 2017urweak posted a message on searching an efficient wincon for creatureless oath of druids deckReplenish + Opalescence + Enchanting Evening and just fill the deck enchantments. One would have to be Concordant Crossroads and something to skip your draw step with, like Symbiotic Deployment.Posted in: Commander (EDH)

Mar 8, 2017Posted in: SpeculationQuote from speedstar15 »Possible POISON counters, but not Infect. Infect is the signature of New Phyrexian as Annihilator to the Eldrazis. POISON fits the Egyptian theme but we are not getting it through INFECT creatures, there is a chance we can get POISON counters from creatures like Crypt Cobra, Swamp Mosquito, Marsh Viper, Pit Scorpion, Sabertooth Cobra, and might even get Leeches! It fits the EGYPTIAN PLANE theme.
I was basically going to post the same thing. If there is poison counters in the set, I think a lot of people would be happy to see it done like these old cards and not bringing back infect. Plus, these cards seem to fit the theme of the block. One note, Leeches is on the reserved list.

I don't pay much attention to the Vintage metagame, but isn't Paradox Storm one of the current best decks?Quote from Bran Dawri »
Unrestricting Merchant Scroll while Gush is unrestricted is a really bad idea. Jus' sayin'. Windfall might be an interesting card to let loose though. Might get combo back in the field, which I'd like, but I'm not sure how safe it is with (again) Gush in the field.
Yes, it is but still doesn't control much of the meta. All the restrictions in Vintage have been done to get the format out from under the thumb of being a shop dominated format. Yet MUD still makes up 30 some percent of the format.
