Quote from GoharothMe playing with my Sliver Overlord EDH deck. I have in play only the general, a Plated Sliver and a Shifting Sliver. My opponent attacked me with Uril, the Miststalker enchanted with Runes of the Deus and Shield of the Oversoul (a classic =__=). Before declaring the blockers I do the following things:
1) I used the tutoring ability of the Sliver Overlord to take from my library Quick Sliver.
2) I played Quick Sliver and Harmonic Sliver (the second was already in my hand), destroying one of the two auras.
3) I re-used the tutoring ability of the general to find Hibernation Sliver, playing it.
4) I payed 2 life to return into my hand the Harmonic Sliver, and I replayed it to destroy the other aura.
5) I blocked Uril (now a 5/5) with the Sliver Overlord, killing it. ^__^
A sliver deck played like a faerie deck!

Quote from ArcaneScribblesTURN 1: Forest
TURN 2: Forest, Rofellos
TURN 3: Forest, Umbral Mantle
Hope you have some removal handy...
Before they banned tinker I went
TURN 1: Island, Sol Ring, Lightning Greaves
TURN 2: Island, Tinker(saccing sol ring), Darksteel Colossus, BASH.
Quote from depolarizationI had thought for the longest time that Rofellos was banned in EDH.
Why? why is it not banned?
Quote from AlmostGrown »I got a Time Stretch to stick under Eye of the Storm. I kept drawing instants and sorceries, so I was able to keep Eye of the Storm triggering and got infinite turns going.
Quote from ThraximundarThe two Elspeths are a great thesis on women in general. When you first meet one, she costs a decent amount to attract, makes you stronger and gives you the feeling that you're flying. She also goes to great lengths to protect her loved ones from harm. After a while, she gets more expensive to maintain, gives birth like a sow, becomes less loyal after doing so, and tops it all off by wrecking crap around the house. Except hers, of course.
Quote from ShinrikoI was playing Ib Halfheart, Goblin Tactician at six life, against two opponents one at eight life and someone playing Sliver Overlord at 22 life.
I had out a Skirk Fire Marshal as my only critter and was at six manna. I put Ib into play, drop a Mogg Maniac, sac four mountains for Goblins then I tap the Tokens and the Maniac to do 10 damage to the player at 8, send the maniac damage to the player at 22 then proceed to attack with the Fire Marshal to do the last two damage as it was the only critter left on the board.
Quote from d0suHey, I've got a deck built around that! Eye of the Storm just starts so much crap it's not funny. Well, it is funny.
Two days in a row, we've somehow gotten to a gamestate that involved Memory Plunder on Eye of the Storm....the explosion that ensues is just nuts, since someone gets a TON of copies of just about every spell in every graveyard. The most notable game was just a few minutes ago, however, when my friend was testing out his new Intet, the Dreamer deck:
First, Hive Mind. A round passes with the table drawing some cards, I think. Then, Dream Halls hits play. Then Eye of the Storm. Then Harrow, followed by Time Spiral. Some shenanigans ensued (a round of Time Spirals/Harrows, to begin with), then he played Grip of Chaos. After responding with some random instants and trying to sort it out, we quit the game with six copies of Time Spiral on the stack. I promise I'm not making this up.
Quote from CorpTContinue playing your original deck and hoping that TOs start giving out points for creativity. Someone has to go 1-3 at FNM every week.
Quote from Aniodia »@Dosu - You know, I was just talking to friends about the Hive Mind + Eye of the Storm + Grip of Chaos combo. Good to know it causes many headaches.
Quote from DalkonCledwinSorry, but due to the fact that EVERY player was dealt 10 damage by your Skirk Fire Marshal's ability, you wouldn't have been able to deal damage to the player who started at 22 with the Maniac nor with the Fire Marshal's attack... reason being that all players who were under 10 life lost the game due to a state-based effect as soon as they hit 0 life. And YOU did hit 0 life if you were at 6 life to begin with... the only exception is if YOU as the player had protection-red somehow. Sorry dude.
Quote from ChrisRTaylor09Hahahah this is the most epic combo that happened in my store. It was like my 2nd time playing EDH and Chromium Was my general (Yes the expensive Elder Dragon Legend -_- I sucked) anyway... I was severely getting destroyed by this kid playing a Nath deck and he had total creature advantage. I built that deck with primarily Shards and 10th Edition cards so needless to say it was very garbage. So He was at 40 life and I was at like 7 or 8 I had a lot of mana on board but kill spells and big beats wiped out most of my creatures. I only have a Filigree Sages and a Phyrexian Altar so I top deck into a Doubling Cube and get the most smug grin on my face ever cause I never thought of a combo before. SO I casted the cube and tapped all like 18 of my mana... then cubed and doubled it... then untapped it with the sages... then doubled it and so on and so forth until I had I believe somewhere 47,000 mana is where I stopped. (I actually have to count in our store or Riki Hayashi will ridicule me for sucking at magic) so I played my general and sacked him enough times to search for an answer which was like half my deck and Tezzeret for the win to swing for game with a ton of 5/5s and a Scepter/Holy Day to stop him from offing me. That was my first EDH win and Epic LOLZ...
Quote from germanturkeySurprise! the majority of players are terrible!
Quote from JivanmuktaSee it works because most players are indeed bad at magic. The same as any other game/hobby/sport/thing.
Quote from ktkenshinxModern has a ban first, ask questions later policy, and it's terrible for our format's publicity.
