Quote from CowboyChuckWhile netdecking and testing VileHorror i thought about Biorhythm. Sure its really expensive, off-color and crappy but still you're always the one with creatures while playing VH. That made me think.
Quote from Caex KotharAnd yes, no incantatrix for you. Or anyone. That class makes puppies cry. Mostly because they are the former Big Bads who have been Baleful Polymorphed into said puppies. By you. Because you're an incantatrix.
Quote from Yukora »This is Deraxas we're talking about.
Remember, the girl that just killed an aspect of herself before literally consuming her?
Yeah, I don't see her handling a pissing match in any way other than a duel.
Quote from RedDwarfian »Yes mistress...
Quote from About epic-level D&D »There are only so many epic, psuedonatural barbarian/blackguard half-dragon akutenshai vampire balor paragons they can throw at you, right?
Quote from Concerning breeding habits of humans in fantasy games »I suppose it's true. Though the logistics implied in a human/Great Wyrm Prismatic Dragon pairing makes me shudder.
...Something tells me that even should all arcane casters in the world unite, that the Grease spell would NOT be sufficient.
Quote from Avatar of Kokusho »You say you have a tough time vs Solidarity and Rifter...well, if I remember correctly, Rifter uses Confinement locks. I hear Mana Breach is pretty decent vs things like that.
Quote from devastater »Why isn't red in there for Brand? Excuse me if I'm saying something already stated but it semms it would win games by itself.
Quote from Isamaru »The thought would be run 3-4x Brand in the sideboard vs. aggro only, with a Badland maindeck... but it doesn't seem like there's room in the sideboard.
Maindeck? No room and too vulnerable / useless in many matchups, even with cycling.
Quote from Twinkee »I think the tutoring effect is poor. You should be running 3-4's ofs against Solidarity no matter what you run. Tutoring on turn3 (or later) is giving your solidarity player a time walk. Then next turn they in response go off in response to your Mana maze.
Quote from MultaniMan3000 »@ Twinkee: Solidarity doesn't show up in our meta, unless I start playing it, so it's not a problem. For others, I suppose you could do as you please.
Quote from Isamaru »By just a little sad, do you mean Mana Maze does hurt you or doesn't hurt BlackStaff (because I don't think it does when you have artifacts to play inbetween spells or their abilities, right?).
Quote from Twinkee »I know, I've already suggested him to remove the SB against solidarity because of the obvious absence of solidarity in his (your) format. But when you take the deck to a bigger tourny, the presence of solidarity will be there and wouldn't you want to be prepared for it as well?
Quote from Avatar of Kokusho »I'm glad you decided on Charm over Darkblast- it's versatile
Perhaps some of us should take up the baton at some point and build it ourselves. I hope my life permits such an effort.
I would like to add that we at this website could really push the envelope for deck-building if we could manage to come together in such a way.[/Jerry Maguire moment]

Quote from Avatar of Kokusho »I know aggroking- he's a decent sort.
I have a set of fetches, so that's not really an issue. Plus, I'm reasonably certain I could borrow Seas from someone. I may have Styluses somewhere in the sea of commons and uncommons in my house..that is, if my oldest son hasn't decided to snack on them yet.
Quote from Avatar of Kokusho »The worst thing is, though, that the sideboard I run would have to be anti-Solidarity...as it's disgustingly popular in this area. My local area usually plays:
Goblins (2-5, depending on who borrows my bro-in-law's deck)
Angel Stompy ( usually 2)
RGSA (The guy who plays this...loses)
That kobold deck (one...badly)
and a 10 year old kid who plays a mono blue control deck. (Do you even have to ask?? This is the kid who says Pernicious Deed isn't worth countering!)
Oh, and one guy who plays Enchantress.
