Quote from ArcadianemetaiI'd go with the flying, several of the top decks have no flying critters (elves, merfolk (eccepting sower), etc.). Thats one reason why Demigod of Revenge is as good as it is. Other than the fact that you can't keep him in the yard anyway.
Quote from ReanimationP.S.
Who needs porn mags when you have Rite of Consumption on a Doomgape?
Quote from Dark SpawnWell i attended FNM last nite after some debate (i had other things going on... They can wait, magic is way more important!)
We had a good turn out, 27 people for T2. Lets take look at the match ups.
Rounds 1 - U/b control? - Kid was running bad cards revolving around -1-1 counters, easy win. 2-0
Round 2 - G/B Elves - G1 I keep a decent hand, My opp goes 3 thoughtseize in a row, goyf, treetop, garruk beatdown.
Sb in deathmarks, terrors.
G2 I keep a 2 land hand with 2 bb's. I dont draw another land for the rest of the game and get overran. Funny thing is i WENT UP to 25 lands right before the start of FNM - not to get mana screwed.
Round 3 - G/r Beats. - He played goyf, Deus, crusher, firesprout. 1st game i killed everything, Beat with lox/bb. Sb in Stupor, terror.
G2 He got mana screwed playing turn 2 elf/birds (after treetop) Turn 4 i damn, he gets stuck on 2 lands. Korlash/hammer time (cant touch this)
Round 4 - Kithkins WW. G1 i killed everything he played, lifegain w/ tenrals.
SB in Terror, deathmarks. G2 I lose to fast start/militias pride - mana screw.
G3 I get 4 lands and thats enough to kill everything... Lox Korlash seal it.
Round 1 - Quick'n' toast UGRWB. This is a tough match up because the deck is slow and plays very powerful spells. G1 Long game that comes down to me winning with BB tokens/hammer. Sb in stupor, extirpate (he ran manniquen), Terrors for Cloudthreshers. G2 He mulls down to 4!!! I keep and start out with bb... get lox and get him down to like 7 by turn 7-8. He gets mulls, manniquen. Then He topdecks a cloudtheresher, clears the board, ends up winning the match before dying himself.
At this point i extirpated mulldrifter, so i saw his deck. He ran 1 oona, 1 razormare. Terror is no good, so i sb in sudden spoiling. Also he ran cloudthrs, 4 wipsmares, and 3-4 firesprouts. I sbed OUT bitterblossom - 1st time i was froced to do this, but i rather him have dead cards.
G3 i start out with thoughtseizes, take cryptic, manniquen. I extirpate cryptic, He mindshatters me - i have no hand. I topdeck 3 damnations in a row, Blowing up finks, mulls, razormare. He is forced to play wispmares w/ no targets, Then i eot tendrals when im at 2. He snag's twice. I btq for demigod, which he mindshatters. He draw - pass, i topdeck profane, bring back Demigod, Dont attack fearing he EOT manniquen.
On his turn he pass - go. I get brave after i topdeck another profane, bring back ANOTHER demigod and swing. He goes down to 11. On his turn... He plays wispmare attempting to get a blocker, Then I Sudden spoiling - No abilities, swing again - win. No cloudthresher FTW! I win with 2 life =)))
At this point it was 11-30pm, we just split top 4. I got 15 boosters, not bad for 7$ =) SoRry for long post, wanted to have this up for discussion!
Quote from Dark Spawn
Any1 with constructive critisizm please speak uP.
Quote from PhyrexianAngelWhat about scarscale ritual since you play urchins. Also, have you ever considered imp's mischief? I mean in general. It can counter, counter-spells.
Quote from MonoBlackOutHow?
A spell cannot target itself.
Rune Snag, cannot counter itself in response.
Quote from PhyrexianAngelCounter-spells can only target other spells so I'm infering that you have already played a spell and it is on the stack when the counter-spell is played.
You have the counter-spell target imp's mischief. Going up in the stack rather than down, so to speak.
Quote from MonoBlackOut
Imp's Mischief doesn't in turn target itself does it?
Quote from PhyrexianAngelNope. Imp's mischief is countered and when the counter-spell is taken off the stack, its one of the those situations "no legal target' so it fizzles. Its good vs a lot of cards, ancestral vision,browbeat, LD, any targeted removal. So it might be useful.
Another suggestion. If you are having mana problems, play a couple twisted abomination.
Quote from MonoBlackOutWow, that might have to jump into my sideboard fast.
Can you change the target of an enchantment (aura of course) to your own creatures?
Quote from PhaerimmArchlordI love this....Lets put more bad decks online,and cause a big stupidity leak.
Quote from makingnotchesI don't care if he's sober or not, he's right.
Quote from ArcadianemetaiThe cryptic would not be countered, so they would still draw. Snagging draw from visions or consideration or burn/removal would be the only uses for mischief that I could see...
