    Emissary is bad. the Caravel is ok in the right deck. easy to crew and can stack triggers to gain more value.

    Thanks for the discussion. My version has won the last 2 weeks. Deck list is in the signature, if you wanted to give upgrade advice.

    3) All slivers must die
    I shouldn't even need to expand upon this, but I guess it needs to be said. In almost every game I've been in with a Sliver deck, other players see the first 1-3 slivers in play and say, "Those aren't that bad." Then a couple more slivers come down and now there's a small army we can't touch because they have hexproof or indestructible or whatever. The worst evaluation was a game when the player had 6+ slivers on the battlefield including Shadow Sliver, but everybody else evaluated this state as harmless because of Dormant Sliver. Well here comes Necrotic Sliver, and Dormant Sliver gets sacrificed to destroy your Ghostly Prison. Have fun blocking dying.
    "I say we take off and nuke the entire site from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure."

    I try to kill the Sliver player. I even try to get the others to kill them. However Slivers are just so cute and adorable that they leave them alone. My only wish is that I had enough money to build an Optimal mana base for a sliver deck.

    They need to bring slivers back to standard so we can have even more slivers......

    I learned not to Gamble for a turn 3 Purphoros, God of the Forge in my Norin the Wary without ample token generation. Pinging everyone for 2-6 a round causes everyone to beat you into submission and die.

    Strange, i get them within a week. Then again I also only play 1 day a week (2 if I am very lucky) so maybe i am just more patient due to that. if I have to go a week or two without a new deck that i want to play, so be it. It just two game nights i don't have that deck.


    We play once a week, a 2 game night where pod winners of the second game wins the promo's. So I build decks I wish to play the next week. So TCGPlayer for the ones i am missing. However, If it involves the new pre cons, then I prefer to have it in hand before I start modifying it, so I can see how it feels. I like to have it all sleeved up and ready for when the singles come in. Will proxy and gold fish the deck while i wait.

    I buy the Vampire decks when i see them in non LGS stores, since they sell them for retail. I have a feeling that Teferi's Protection will only go up in price. Best protection spell out there.

    Yeah the price gouging is ridiculous. We have 1 store in town to play at. Half the commander players are on a really strict budget/poor. And the store doesn't even sell product online to justify gouging the price. I will take my spare to Commander Night tonight and trade it to one of the less fortunate players who wants it. See if they have some of the recent cards that just spiked in price for the Sisay deck I want to build.

    Yoj could also try amazon could you not?


    Problem with amazon is it takes forever to arrive unless you pay for the Prime Membership. When I'm wanting to build a deck or get the new product, I don't like waiting a week to get it.

    I no longer buy commander products at LGS. Walmart and Shopko sell them for MSRP. And they always stock them. I've even found Commander 14/13 decks at Shopko.

    Do you buy extras of a precon? My store ran out of the Vampire one, and with the going price of Teferi's Protection of around 30$, they will start selling it for $50 when next shipment comes in. I have the precon already, and picked up a second one at ShopKo for $30. Was just curios on your opinions on the matter.

    I have an extra to trade to others so they won't have to pay the $50 price for one. If all else fails, I have a second copy of the Protection.

  • posted a message on Help fixing Vampiric Bloodlust mana base
    Quote from Goldenbelmont »


    This is my land base for my Markov deck. Outside the Shock lands, the mana base is all under a few dollars. You can add the Mirage fetch lands to help get the colors you need. They do come into play tapped but cheaper than paying $40 for a single fetch.


    That looks awesome. I appreciate the help on the mana base. I looked into the cards you posted and they look like I can work them into my budget. Im newer to the game of Magic (6 months) so I rely on these forums for most of my info.


    My mana base is heavy on the black. So all my non basic lands has to be able to tap for some form of Black so I'm never missing out. Only wish there were more enemy lands that have basic land types.

    I would like to see the Shadow cards returned and improved on.

    For those who don't know, the Shadow's key word says, Creature can't block or be blocked by creatures without Shadow.

    Its a 2 headed knife. Great for quick near unblockable damage.

  • posted a message on How would you break the reserved list?
    I would give a year notice. Then start rotating reserve cards into standard sets, with an quick ban from standard so it doesn't get out of hand. Allow the consumer to buy booster boxes of Ice Age+ straight from Wizards at a slightly higher price than regular boxes.

  • posted a message on What to do with worthless commons?
    When I open a booster, I keep the rare, Full art land, and the tokens. Also any valuable uncommons. I throw the rest away.

  • posted a message on Sorin Markov
    So, I was curious as to when you think we will see Sorin Markov again. I know the last time we saw him he was imprisoned in stone. But since we left Innistrad I was thinking of what if someone came and rescued him while we were dinking around on Ahmonkat.
