  • posted a message on God-Eternal Bontu and Sacrifice effects to Draw her again.
    Might I suggest...
    God-Eternal Bontu+Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder+Pitiless Plunderer+ Any Free Sacrifice outlet: Viscera Seer, Ashnod's Altar, Carrion Feeder, etc. to be able to not only draw Bontu again, but draw as many cards as you want and play any creature cards for free essentially.
    To do this combo you cast Bontu, create 5 thrulls with Endrek, sacrifice the thrulls with Bontu, create 5 treasures from Pitiless Plunderer, with the draw triggers on the stack, sac Bontu to a free sac outlet, put Bontu 3rd from the top of your library, draw 5 cards, play any other creatures from your hand( Blood Artist ), rinse and repeat as necessary. It's a pretty spicy combo I thought of for my Endrek Sahr EDH deck.

    I have been a Magic the Gathering player the last three years. I have grown so much a a player, it is really incredible. I learned to play on my Xbox 360 using the notorious Magic 2014 Game that was given away free on xbox gold one month in late summer. When I first started I didn't really understand anything besides the complete basics. As far as I was concerned the guy with the biggest creatures and the most mana would win more often then not, so I was a mono green player all the way. I easily beat the game after defeating The Elder Dragon, Nicol Bolas,(I only had to restart the match 10-15 times) I was ready to get my hands on some real cards! Well School got in the way and I just kept putting it off thinking I would come off "super geeky" for pursuing my passion for this Game. Also, I should mention I come from a loving, but sheltered, Christian home. The sound of a card game where you summon monsters & cast sorceries to try to kill your opponent doesn't exactly sound that appealing to most Christians.

    Well, one thing led to another, and on October 3, 2013 I broke my leg playing Softball in PE. When it happened I was in Shock, no literally, I went into shock. I couldn't relax any of my muscles. I was just praying that my leg wouldn't tense up so that my bone would stay the skin. You know I have always had thick, tough skin and I kid you not I had a scab on my leg after surgery were the bone had punctured all but the the 2 outermost levels of my skin. Well I found out I had also suffered from severe traumatic brain and neck injury. For an entire Quarter of my freshman year I could not do anything( Play video games, talk to people, watch TV, reading, listen to music, or even go to do anything else fun for that matter. Pretty much they just expected me to lock myself in a dark closet and do nothing, but eat & sleep. So I figure, when am I ever going to get a better time to dive into this game. So I go on E-bay and order over 7,000 magic cards for $55 delivered to my house. This thing came in about a 2' by 2' cube that literally weighed around 40 lbs. So I just got to work looking at all the pretty art and organizing them by covering the entire living room in cards so I could match matching cards together.

    So I made myself and my Dad Decks, but it was a long while before we could get our hands some basic lands, so we just played without them using nonbasics like evolving wilds. Once I started playing my Dad(whom is literally a genius by the way), I must have beaten him at least a dozen times with the pauper mono green deck I made against the mono black deck I helped him build. To be continued... God Bless Smile

    I would suggest Yisan, the wanderer Bard. He can be quite competitive without spending too much money. He plays more like a blue deck because of his tap ability that lets you put search for a creature in response to your opponents spells. There are also a lot of creature combos that let him get out of hand really fast.

    Great idea, it reminds me of a fighting game were you tag in your guys and keep fighting 'till the last man gets, K.O.ed. Just had an idea for a few modificatons to this idea(although tbh I've yet to try out either one Sweat ). So you both choose opponents deck each time and both start at 40 life to start, then go on to the second deck at 20, then the last deck at 10. The winner just keeps the amount of life that they have if they are above their opponents starting life total, if they are below the opponent then they simply go up 5 life points or until they are equal with the opponent. Sounds like fun and I am looking forward to trying both versions out! Also, you should probably only use 4 copies of any individual card in all 3 of your decks(like 2 headed giant).

  • posted a message on Relic: Enchantment Commander
    What if you make it so that the mana cost of the enchantment never goes up, that way there is less incentive to just play a bunch of GW enchantment removal spells. You would certainly have to make some bans as result of this rule, but it would make black and red much more viable colors. Are there any problems people see with this idea? Also, you should probably ban Enchantment creatures/Gods, unless your going for that.

  • posted a message on Hyper Commander: Start with three basic lands, no nonland cards with cmc 3 or less
    Sound like a good idea, especially for 3+ color commanders. That way you won't get mana screwed for any particular color.

    Cool Idea! It seems like a bummer for the people who don't get planeswalkers though, maybe a seprate pile of just planeswalkers, so everyone gets 2 planeswalkers to choose from? idk just an idea, but this sounds like fun! Sort of like a cube for sealed play.

    Sounds like the problem might be with the skill level your play group, tell them they need to step up their casual game! But until that happens... I have been playing casual for a little while and if you are anything like me, you love deck building. Rolleyes So just experiment with any other hanky, lanky, janky, AWESOME budget deck idea(s) and while you your getting that tuned to perfection, your friends will inevitably win a few rounds. Although, every once in a while, when your feeling down, or you just feel like putting them in their place, you can whip out that sweet Naya knights/vigilance deck and utterly anilate them, lest they forget the awesome power that is Your Naya Nights Deck! MWHAHAHAHAAAAHAAHAAAA! Just remember casual is a format for having fun, interactive games with friends, and if they aren't having fun you probably won't be having much fun either. Frown Golden rule.
    p.s. Do with the awesome power that is altered lightning bolt as you will. Wink

    I would also switch green and white, so that green is allied with white and blue instead of white and red.
