Mar 28, 2017Any budget replacements? Can't exactly afford the Candelabra of Tawnos or Lion's Eye Diamond, but I love playing lists like this. If you could run through the expensive cards and suggest replacements that'd help a lot! Also, if the Bomberman package just flat out doesn't work without LED, what would you put in for the cards that become worse as the money cards are removed?Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists

(Retired)Posted in: Multiplayer Commander DecklistsQuote from Dies_to_Doom_Blade »Quote from DementedKirby »Have you been feeling the same way as me towards recent sets? I feel like there's been a decline in support for the graveyard - even in products like Commander and Conspiracy. After Innistrad v2.0 there hasn't been much love for the graveyard. Practically all sifting cards in the Kaladesh block place cards at the bottom of one's library instead of the graveyard. Reanimator and graveyard-matters decks don't like that . The only recent block/set that made the graveyard important has been Innistrad 2.0.
We get things on occasion but recently there hasn't been anything worth sliding in.
And truth be told I've been playing this less and less the last few months so we will see how it turns out
What have you been playing? Did you move to the 4c version with Thrasios? Or just a different deck entirely?

+4 Kalonian Tusker
Seems like the color restriction is actually just nothing to you. Your splash color is W so hitting GG or GW on turn 2 will result in you getting a 3/3 for 2.
I'd also agree that making 3 1/1's (and having your enchantment make them 4/4's) seems a lot better than dropping fatties and making them "fattier". Maybe take some of the enchants out and add Raise the Alarm/Secure the Wastes/Elspeth, Sun's Champion/Garruk, Primal Hunter or some other token guys. You could go purely Instant/Sorcery/Enchant tokens and use Timely Reinforcements, Hunting Triad, Nissa, Voice of Zendikar and other Token & +1/+1 counter stuff (as counters get around the Muraganda clause, also the reason Intangible Virtue wouldn't work)
Avenger of Zendikar is always a beating, you could run a Craterhoof Behemoth to finish the game quickly as well. Might of Old Krosa and the other pump spells could work but it seems like you'd need to give them Trample to finish someone off, so David Hasslehoof would seem like your best 1-of big drop.
Rhys the Redeemed
Lot's of directions for you to go, but the obvious includes swapping something out for the tusker, adding a Craterhoof Behemoth to Berserk your creatures and Trample your opponents. Then think about if the deck would be better with a token and +1/+1 theme, or if big vanilla guys without evasion are still doing the trick.
EDIT: Heroic Intervention seems like it's too good to pass up in your deck as well. Save all your creatures, or just save one of them, or stop your enchantments from bouncing/being destroyed, save your creatures from Wildfire or lands from Obliterate/Armageddon... all for 1G! Even though your creatures would lose the pump from Muraganda it'd only be until EOT and the upside this card gives your deck is extreme. You are running white though, so Brave the Elements is also in your wheelhouse, but Heroic Intervention just seems bonkers with your deck's variety. It'll save all your win conditions from anything except an exile that doesn't target, or Languish/Diabolic Edict-type effects.
Feb 2, 2017Why not Mana Crypt instead of Sol Ring? Seems like damage and our life total is absolutely negligible for a red deck. Also cutting the Myriads and adding a red fetch Bloodstained Mire, Wooded Foothills etc... would help thin the deck and pitch a land in our yard (bringing us up to 8 total "pitchable" lands) although cutting Valakut might be in order if we go for fetches/threshold.Posted in: Casual & Multiplayer Formats
Basically we need to decide if threshold is worth it, if we're going all in on Valakut or using fetches to fill the yard for delirium/threshold.
EDIT: Manamorphose basically durdles but it helps thin 4 cards out of our deck and put an instant in the bin for delerium (it also draws). Purphoros, God of the Forge seems like great option delirium, and adding a finisher or just extra damage. Pyrostatic Pillar, Uphill Battle, Eidolon of the Great Revel are all good for the enchantment slot as well.
Mar 27, 2016You need something like Electrickery or maybe even Dual Shot or Grapeshot. Delver is THE card to beat at the moment, the only thing the fairy ban did for the format was make blue more focused on delver. You need to beat him if you want to win. Green has all the fight effects as well, which could work just as well as spot removal. Especially in the Werewolves deck, some of those "target creature fights other target creature" have other clauses like "put a +1/+1 counter" on the creature after the fight as well. Or lifegain etc...Posted in: Paper Pauper and Peasant

DeckMagic OnlineOCTGN2ApprenticeBuy These Cards Lands (20)
4 Godless Shrine
4 Marsh Flats
1 Arid Mesa
4 Cavern of Souls
3 Tectonic Edge
4 Cartel Aristocrat
4 Champion of the Parish
4 Dark Confidant
4 Doomed Traveler
4 Skirsdag High Priest
3 Thalia, Guardian of Thraben
2 Orzhov Charm
4 Lingering Souls
4 Leyline of Sanctity
1 Thalia, Guardian of Thraben
Ok, so this is where it's at now. I think that Lingering Souls makes for an excellent addition to add chump blockers and sac-able creatures on the fly.
7 cards shy and definitely under-streamlined. Just kind of brainstorming here.
+4 Thalia's Lieutenant
+2 Inquisition of Kozilek
+1 Mutavault, Gavony Township, or a fastland/handland.
Mar 25, 2016Bygone Bishop is making me want cleric/spirit tribal now. They have some really good spirits. It seems like the humans deck would lend itself well to counters and the Gavony Township style of play. Much like G/W plays out.Posted in: Deck Creation (Modern)
We could throw some non-humans in the deck simply because they are awesome.
Wild Nacatl comes to mind if you're going naya.
Bant is one way to take it, but you miss out on all the disruption and removal that black brings, along with BoB's card draw. Time to make him good again. Throw in Gather the Townsfolk maybe.

So Jace is printed the most by 1. Not really that extreme considering he is the "face" of the game.
Are you equally upset by Chandra having more printings then every non-jace walker?
^this, relax and take a chill pill and wait for Tamyo's new card in EMN
Mar 23, 2016TheSloth posted a message on Half way through spoilers. Which card will see the most play?I really like Thalia's Lieutenant but that's just the Soul Sister in me. I want to make an Abzan/CoCo list with it in there. Might be T2 or at least on par with Merfolk? Could keep it G/W but B adds a lot and is easy to obtain in Modern (thanks Urborg)Posted in: New Card Discussion
Mar 23, 2016I think humans has more potential with Thalia's Lieutenant and the billion other awesome humans. If you're looking for a tribal I'd test that out first with Aether Vial, Cavern of Souls, Champion of the Parish, Dark Confidant and many others...Posted in: Deck Creation (Modern)
You could also run that human deck in another direction and add some of the soul sisters pieces (as they're all humans) and go for counters, lifegain, stomping and board control with Dromoka's Command, Gavony Township, Collected Company, Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant, Ajani's Pridemate, Felidar Sovereign etc...
YET ANOTHER WAY!! Add blue/black, run esper human control. Snapcaster Mage, Restoration Angel, whatever the expensive version of Chittering Rats is etc...
As others have said, I believe B to be necessary in building a vampire deck. BR is not hard to put together or run successfully (even on a budget) thanks to the Tangolands (Smoldering Marsh) and the new Handlands (Foreboding Ruins). If you have shocks (Blood Crypt), fetches (Bloodstained Mire) even better! Toss in some Mutavault's for good measure. But not running black misses you out on SO many things you would want in any deck. Like Chainer's Edict, Thoughtseize, Inquisition of Kozilek, Kalastria Highborn, Viscera Seer (your 1-drop vamp) and many others. Not to mention you get access to Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth
Mar 18, 2016Thalia's Lieutenant just made me look this thread up and revive it. How about the old Gatecrash humans deck? Run Lightning Mauler or Devoted Retainer/Elite Vanguard/Soldier of the Pantheon/Soul Warden or other better 1 drop. Frontline Medic was always pretty house, counters miracles well taboot. Obviously the deck wouldn't be T1 but it'd be pretty sweet, add some reach and power and we're there.Posted in: Deck Creation (Modern)
You could also take it another way and play Serra Ascendant with some of the Soul sisters as well. Might actually be better than soul sisters....
The "Base" should look something like this
4x Cavern of Souls
X Utility land (Slayers' Stronghold, Gavony Township etc..)
1 Coat of Arms or other Anthem effect
X AEther Vial
X Dark Confidant
X Thalia, Guardian of Thraben
X Thalia's Lieutenant
X Champion of the Parish
Soldier of the Pantheon
Mayor of Avabruck
Vines of Vastwood
Mikaeus, the Lunarch
Bear Umbra for a "finisher"
Hyena Umbra if you just want the protection
The real question is... do we add blue for tricks? Or stick with Green for stability?
Delver of Secrets
Honestly speaking, if it's modern we're after, I'd probably go the creature/aggro route because active gameplans are better. Another take on the deck could be a tempo/midrange with blue added. The blue humans all seems to support the lategame.
Feb 29, 2016TheSloth posted a message on Home-made "duel decks" (designed specifically as a pairing to one other deck)This needs a bump with some lists. Maybe if we had a guildline to go by, like 5 rares, 1 mythic (optional) 10 Uncommons rest common? If someone can come up with something better I'm all ears. Was looking through my GF's cards and found a lot of old gems including a Misty and Marsh Flats which lends itself to G/U vs W/B pretty well, especially since I own the shocks etc...Posted in: Magic General
Oct 6, 2015TheSloth posted a message on Will you play MtG if you can only obtain cards through boosters?Unless they release Alpha, Beta, Revised and Zendikar boosters... this conversation is pretty pointless.Posted in: Magic General
