    posted a message on Need Help vs. Golos Brawl
    I play at an LGS that still holds Brawl in high regards and people play it regularly. We have a slight variance, in that we mostly play 1v1 with a 15-card sideboard.

    One of the players runs a Golos Brawl deck that is giving my two Brawl decks (Ral, Storm Conduit Tempo and Teysa Karlov Aristocrats) alot of trouble. His deck consists of kill spells, counterapells, high value Planeswalkers, Mana dorks and Field of the Dead. The Field of the Dead always supplies him with enough ground protection that he can apply pressure without investing too much into board state, and if his hand is already stacked or almost empty he will activate Golos repeatedly.

    Is there anyone who can give me some insight on how to deal with this type of deck? I can't even seem to get close when the life totals are 25.

    Desolate Lighthouse.. oh boy.. honestly around $270 a box sounds like what should have been MSRP. Not the dramatic $315, do not buy this box for that much even if the evaluated price of the box is that high. Too much of a gamble.

    They unbanned JtMS and not SFM which makes me very unhappy. This card is not just really powerful but wicked unfun to play against, not excited to lose to this guy. Time to play more Pauper.

    Also this unbanning right before Masters 25 is mega sketchy, not a good move Wizards.

    This thread so far is basically just a Magic storyline bashfest.


    I, personally, am happy with this outcome and wouldn't have it any other way. If there is ever a hook or a twist to be drawn, I'd pray it not be against the Eldrazi if we ever wish for them to go away.

    Okayish madness enabler.

    Edit: Saw once per turn. It's okayish.

    For EDH masters this set is pretty good. I hate seeing Karakas in it though, ugh.

    Losing Avacyn hurt Sorin as much as taking a bolt of lightning. Frown

    Blue/Green in the way of aggro is a bit more fun in commander than combo control. Very happy to see that tokens trigger this, went from mediocre to absolutely insane. Right off the bat Awakening Zone and From Beyond give experience counters.

    posted a message on Advice for Black Token Commander!
    I am really motivated to want to make a black token edh. I already have a friend with a very good Endrek Sahr, so I'd like to make either Merrow-Gnawer or Ghoulcaller Ghisa. My fairly competitive playgroup varies between games of 1-4 people. We have a couple of heavy counter decks (Talrand), a couple of aggro decks (Krenko) and mostly midrange w/green decks. We are alright with attrition strategies, infinite combos and unaffordable cards. What should I build between those two?
