    I finally put my Zedruu deck together and got to play a couple of games with it. I'm having fun dealing arbitrary amounts of damage to my opponents. One game I had 81 Precursor Golem's and 1836 vanillas thanks to a Cackling Counterpart and an Annoited Procession. They all turned into Goblin Rabblemaster's, though only 8 could attack, which was just a little bit more then enough (for 30.728 damage, if my calculations is correct!).


    Did anyone say "the 1/1s kill us, you can stop doing math now"?


    Well, yeah, we picked up our cards pretty quickly afterwards, but I just had to know how much damage it was Smile

    In another game, I was really low on life, but a Inferno Titan stalled for a moment, then I made two more copies and then I started to wreck board. Declaring attacks and I cleared my opponent's board and swung for 18, next turn 27. That was game.

    Reviewing the cards, I’ve been really pleased with the Uncommon Legends. While not the best, many of them are at least interesting to build around. I’ve been deck-building them as thought experiments, and some of them can be made good for a fairly cheap price. This set should hopefully also increase the diversity of decks we see at the store level. I’m not going to miss playing against three Edgar Markov decks in a game.

    Yeah, and it adds a lot of options for PDH (pauper commander) to actually build around a legendary.

    Roger, did you switch to our Queen and Savior Nissa? I thought you were still on the Kamahl plan


    Yeah, I did make the switch. A bit painful, but I think Nissa is overall better. It always felt a bit clunky to animate and attack with your lands. First of, it's really vunerable, there's some math to it thats hard to adjust in a multiplayer setting. Nissa it's more simple. You pseudo-ramp and draw cards, which is just really good, when your wincons are Ifh-Bíff Efreet, Squallmonger and Squall Line. Well, sometimes your opponents also fold Smile

    This will probably be my first EDH deck...I've been playing the Modern list for a little while now and love it.


    That deck sure looks nasty Smile But this will properly be somewhat different. Targeted land destruction isn't as good in multiplayer then 1v1. Here MGC tends to sit behind a Fog until we go off.

    Have any of you seen anything exciting in the spoilers? Im not entirely sold on anything yet, but a couple of cards caught my eye. Kamahl's Druidic Vow could potentially be very good, but in the right build. Maybe not this one.
    Broken Bond is another one that I'm looking at. Pseudo-ramp on a Naturalize seems ok - with Nissa I usually don't have a problem keeping my hand full, so getting to put that extra land on board wouldn't be bad.
    Then there's Sylvan Awakening which will mos def get into my Kamahl build (if I ever make that again:))

    Cackling Counterpart is probably the best individual copy spell for Precursor Golem because it casts twice. For reference, a kicked Rite of Replication with 1 Precursor Golem and friends leaves you with 6 Precursors and 22 vanillas, cast and flashback Cackling Counterpart gets you to 8 precursors and 40 vanillas. Iteration is stronger than increased power.

    Sorry for being dumb, but how does two copies of Cackling Counterpart net you 8 PC and 40 vanillas? First spell would target the 3 golems, one which make another 2 vanillas. Thats 2 PC's and 6 vanillas, right? In my mind, the flashback would get you to 4 PC's and 24 vanillas...

    I agree, it is very hard to find cards to cut these days. I recently added Dire Fleet Daredevil in place of Shreds of Sanity, which was one of the more hit-or-miss cards in the deck. Next cut is possibly Magma Phoenix, which is an all-star if the game turns into a grindy 1-on-1, but too mediocre at other times.

    The Dire Fleet Daredevil sure seems like a nice dude - and I already want one for my hazezon-flicker deck. But yeah, he might also be good in Squee. I guess it can also be a hit or miss, depening on your opponents. You are right about Shreds of Sanity, I cut a while back. It looked good, but not when you have something like Past in Flames.

    Bonkers, now Control of the Court is listed at 80USD on SCG... Gaping
    BAHAHAHA, that's awesome! Mine has been sitting in my binder for a while now -- maybe I can finally move it.

    Yes, I'm still playing Squee, it is my go-to deck whenever I get to play Magic. As a matter of fact, I killed someone a few weeks ago by dropping a Valakut mountain on them for 96 damage.

    Did you see the Dominaria leak? Here is a translation from the original Chinese post (there are more accurate translations available now, but this one is better):
    Not dead Squig
    { A } { red } { red }
    Legendary creatures ~ ghosts
    2/1
    You can cast sphinx from your graveyard or exile.

    I am definitely changing the thread name to "Not Dead Squig".


    Haha, I did see the english releasenotes and Squee, the Immortal, but not that translation - it's glorious Smile

    Glad you still enjoy the deck. I do aswell, though it's pretty rare i get to play it. No changes for me, and I didn't notice anything in the Dominaria spoiler that I wanted for Squee. But I'm pretty glad with the state of the deck, so it will be hard to make cuts anyway.

    Edit: on new-squee, yup Food Chain combo decks got a new toy, but maybe he could the voltron-commander that keeps coming back Smile

    So, is Lyra Dawnbringer taking the slots as commander?

    Right now, I've got an assorted mix of basics, but I'm finally going to put an order in for Ice Age Snow-Covered Forests (much nicer than the Cold Snap ones), so I can run Mouth of Ronom, which my instincts tell me will be a pretty solid card for Titania (tutorable removal that nets me an elemental? yes please...).

    If I was to get the non-snow Forests of my choice, I'd either go for the same John Avon one as Driemer, or, as this is my favourite deck, splash out on a set of Unhinged ones (or if I was really going to go crazy money wise Gurus, but that's not even remotely plausible...).

    My favourite basic land of all is this plains. Invasion had amazing lands - though both John Avon and Terese Nielsen contributed, so I suppose it's not that surprising.

    I was going to suggest ice age lands too. I play them in all my decks - they are adorable Smile

    Everyone laughed, but now Goblin Lore is a $10 card.
    Wow, I'm actually laughing a bit about that aswell Smile

    There havn't been any changes to my deck since the last set, 'though Brass's Bounty looked cool I don't think I really want another way to make massive amounts of mana, and Mana Geyser just does the job better.
    But my deck is in a really nice shape, it tends to steal a lot of wins. Are you still playing Squee?

    I get what you are saying, weltkrieg, but when you run a creature-light deck, Yeva, Nature's Herald is not for you. I only have 15 creatures in my deck, besides the commander. Of the rest, 8 is instants so Vedalken Orrery grants most of my deck flash.

    Also, why am I not running Vedalkan Orrery?

    Don't know - card is amazing! When you have Seedborn Muse down, it's almost like you're playing simultaneously with everyone else.
