Feb 4, 2021Also CC self-hammering and claiming scum didn't actually seem auto scum to me, since I've done that in past as last effort to get some reactions out of mafia.Posted in: Mafia
Feb 4, 2021Yeah, that poisoner screwed everything up for me.Posted in: Mafia
I was pretty sure Sloth was scum, but night actions made absolutely no sense...
And I was at 2 vit, I lost one to Wisp but gained one D3.

"Final bet for scum:

Though I said this exact thing about Az and as we saw, my reads aren't that good
Feb 4, 2021I'm just refusing to believe HR is townPosted in: Mafia
Feb 4, 2021Wtf is happeningPosted in: Mafia
Feb 4, 2021If we just double-yeeted two scum, this will go down on history (or at least end up in 2022 podcast)Posted in: Mafia
Feb 4, 2021I'd say Boom votes next Tubba, Sloth votes whoever, Vaimes votes the other and then KJ hammers.Posted in: Mafia
And votes in that order.

Let's get this over with.
Feb 4, 2021I'm here too. I need to focus on work soon, so I'd prefer not to spend too much time on this game right now.Posted in: Mafia
Feb 4, 2021I'm here. I think we have like 70 minutes until DL?Posted in: Mafia
Feb 4, 2021I'm working, but I'm checking the thread every now and thenPosted in: Mafia
Feb 4, 2021Posted in: MafiaQuote from bessie »Quote from Killjoy »bessie: can you expound on your top two or three town reads? As much detail as you can. Why are they town?
Quote from Slothful »
Beyond that, do you have other reads? Who's in your bottom 3? or top 3? (if you've gone over them in a recent post, just point me to it)
I’ve been trying to do a real reads list but I there has just been too much content and I never was even able to get back to the last half of D1. On my home site most complete games were around 20 pages or so, and I am usually behind even in small games. I don’t have any references from my home site easily available (but will try to find something if requested). Or there are some places where I was talking about my time constraints and problems with content overload in the games I linked earlier.
Here’s my reads without doing a thread reread, I skimmed through D4 content as I wrote this.
Anak – I thought he was scummy yesterday and I ended the day with one of my votes on him. I still find him suspicious for his D4 content and would vote for him today.
BoomFrog – I have never been that good at reading BoomFrog but I haven’t had any major scum pings from him. The only ping I have is the odd comment he made in post #3602 about my push on Azrael. Like I said I wasn’t the only player pushing Azrael so I am suspicious as to why he pointed out why that was a negative for me in particular.
Bur – The thing that I previously found most suspicious about Bur was that he voted without giving reasons. I skilled him because I had a free skill, and he did explain some reads more in chat than he was doing in the thread. I still do not have a strong town lean but I am against voting for him today.
Cuthalion – He has been one of my scum reads since D2. He is voting for me without giving a reason that he can explain which I find suspicious. For more of my thoughts see my D4 posts.
Highroller – I can understand his content and his focus on Wisp.
Killjoy – I think he has produced consistently good content and I like his posting style.
Slothful – Another player that I think has produced consistently good content and I like his posting style.
Tammy – I was suspicious of her early game content for what seemed to me to be not taking strong positions on anything, like everything she posted had a disclaimer. Her playstyle is the type that I often clash with so that may be part of my early suspicion on her. I’m still not seeing why Tammy was obvitown early in the game but I think I was more suspicious of some players that I felt were too quick to defend Tammy without trying to understand what a player that had no prior experience with her found suspicious.
Tubba – I think I will stand by what I said previously, I don’t see the scum reads on Tubba. Maybe it is because his playstyle is more like mine, unlike someone like Tammy who’s playstyle is very different from mine.
Vaimes – I have been suspicious of Vaimes since D2, I often don’t follow his reads. Like, he started D4 voting for Cuth, but says it was just to provoke him to post. There was also this comment in post #3652: “I am trying to townread Cuth with peace in my heart.” Like he is trying to force this read.
Wisp – Self-claimed non-town.
Ending with content through page 76. I’ll pick up on page 77 later.
Also, this has been confusing me for a while, but I don’t see every post every time I load the page. Like, in one tab I have open, the first post on page 77 is #3802, but if I open page 77 in another tab I can’t see this post and the first post is #3803. This has happened other times too where I can’t see a particular post that I remember being at the top of a page. Is this an issue for anyone else?
One of Bessie's last posts with their read list.
After ISOing Bessie, I need few things.
Bessie and Tubba barely interacted.
Bessie and HR barely interacted.
Bessie and Vaimes did interact a lot. Bessie kept calling Vaimes scum for a good while, along with Cuth, Az and Anak.
I'm pretty sure Vaimes is town.
Bessie and Sloth interacted, but as much as with Vaimes, but more than with Tubba/HR.
The interactions weren't super meaningful, but I at least feel better about Sloth than HR/Tubba after this ISO.
Most of WMU/Bessie's interactions were with confirmed town (GJ, Az, Anak, Cuth) which is while Bessie interacting with Vaimes a lot makes me feel even better about Vaimes.
I'm fine with either Tubba or HR, though I'd prefer HR.
Feb 3, 2021I have received a prod.Posted in: Mafia
This is a post.
I need to sleep.
I will try to post again before this phase ends.
PS: don't become a teacher, you will never again see free time on your time tables.

Mar 14, 2015Mindbreak Trap (and Containment Priest) are both meta calls. Obliterate, Boseiju and infinite combos involvingPosted in: Bur
casting and bouncing palinchron are too common for my tastes in my meta.
What are your thoughts about Crawlspace? Also, what are your experiences with Mobilization?
My friend tried to convince me that it's a bad card that requires too much mana to be useful ever, but I've
seen it on the other side of table quite often and it always seems to be really good if it sticks...
Mar 14, 2015I'd probably cut Prison/Propaganda first, since I'd prefer to have an option to protect my PW's.Posted in: Bur
Also, what are your thoughts about Oblivion Ring etc.?
And are 15 Scepter-able instants enough?
... I'm really having trouble with cutting stuff. I still kinda want to add few more counters and removals...
Mar 3, 2015Few changes:Posted in: Bur
- Norn's Annex. It was a artifact and not enchantment.
+ Ophiomancer. Since I'm an idiot.
+ Hero's Downfall. Removal for PW's (and that removal is needed in my meta.)
+ Return to Dust. Since 2-for-1 exile is good.
+ Torpor Orb. Since I don't like EtB-creatures.
Also, the thing that worries me a lot is that I have contamination but no way to play around it myself. I would need to have few more mana rocks that produce coloured mana.
EDIT: Removed Contamination.
Also, not cutting Crawlspace or Containment Priest anytime soon. Crawlspace only states about attacking me while Containment Priest is a meta-call.
Also, I don't like Seals since they let my opponents know that the removal is coming miles ahead...
Feb 7, 2015I still left Containment Priest, since reanimation and stuff like Tooth and Nail, GSZ and Chord of Calling are quite common in my meta...Posted in: Bur
But, more suggestions what to cut and what to add? I think I'm little bit over 100 at the moment...
Oct 20, 2014Posted in: BurQuote from ISBPathfinder »Personally I went away from Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief a while back because she was just so mana intensive to really utilize. I think she is still decent but you might also test Sheoldred, Whispering One in her place. I was originally against utilizing her but she does some decent work especially when paired with some recursion. Against hexproof voltron is where she really shines but I think she is still a fairly good value engine all around.
Disciple of Bolas goes back and forth for me as well. I ended up cutting him from my list because I rarely had disposable creatures that would give me a good number of cards. Low creature counts + utility based creatures makes him a bit awkward.
Rescue from the Underworld was always awkward for me as well. It exiles itself so you can only use it once and it has a delay which can be incredibly awkward if someone does something on your turn to a creature you want to keep. I ended up cutting it myself due to just odd timing in general with it as well as needing two targets and it exiles itself when it resolves.
Rescue from the Underworld and Bone Dancer are the things I probably won't end up cutting, since they are in the decks just because I like them mechanically (and have a pretty foil of Rescue).
I'll keep Disciple and Drana in mind while I keep on testing.
Oct 20, 2014Posted in: BurQuote from ISBPathfinder »It looks like it isn't isolated for me.... I am going to bring that one to Feyd.
Both of those options would be solid picks. Picking up another tutor could also be an option for you such as Diabolic Intent or Beseech the Queen. I don't see anything that looks like it has to make the list that is differing between our lists.
Yeah. I have hard time trying to figure out what to cut, since I haven't had enough chances to properly play test everything (there are some cards I haven't still seen a single time, like Oversold Cemetary and Withering Boon).
But, if you think of something that might not be a good idea (or something that makes you think "why?"), let me know.
Mar 6, 2014Firstly, the ISB's list can be found via the the link at the top of the page...Posted in: Bur
Argentum Armor: Even though it is expansive, it is one of the few ways to remove enchantments and artifacts in mono-B.
Burnished Hart: Since ramp is good and it counts as a creature, why not. I like this card more than many other cards that have been released in recent years.
Stinkweed Imp: He's a dredge-enabler (and a good one), but he's no way necessary.
Jet Medallion: I thought about it, but ended up cutting it, when I still had few too many cards...
Boseiju: I doubt he'd be that useful in this deck, since at my meta counter-based controls are quite rare (= there is exactly one + few decks with few counters).
Gauntlet/Caged Sun: I don't like Gauntlet, but Caged Sun is actually good... I wonder how that slipped my mind, considering that I run it almost every EDH I have...
Dark Ritual: Since I just don't like mana rituals in EDH. I like them in Legacy, but not in EDH.
Damnation: I considered it, but since the deck has already quite a lot removal, and mutilate usually removes indestructible things, I picked it over Damnation this time.
Grave Pact: I should actually play it in this... But firstly, I need to find 8th version of that, since I dislike the other arts.
Oh, and just so that you know, this deck is not exactly stax. It's more like... UB-control disguised as mono-B deck.
