Mar 14, 2019Somehow we keep missing the retired clan thread by mere inches. Here's a post to keep up the tradition.Posted in: Clans
Been going solely commander playing for the past year and it doesn't seem I'll stop. My 60 card decks rot in my deckbox now...:(
However, I keep it casual at the table and look for any reason to build a deck around an unusual theme rather than a highly efficient build. Arcades, the Strategist is in testing phase right now. I love me some defenders!
Other than that I jumped on the Minecraft bandwagon after swearing it off. My kids love it and I discovered I love resource hunting and applying practical build applications. It sounds boring, but it's a wonderful time for me.
Hope you all are well.
Until a year from now, see you guys and gals around.
Apr 21, 2018That's a solid set up. The only thing that I could see that would have pushed you over the edge would have history of benalia. I played green white and went three and one with two wins after side boarding in that card and it was a work horse for winning games. Both rounds played afterwards I went two and 0.Posted in: Limited (Sealed, Draft)
It was my first limited sealed pre-release in 13 years and I was worried I wouldn't do well but was very satisfied. The only problem I had was with a red white aggro deck that pushed out creatures fast with high power creatures backed by the solid combat tricks of white.

I LOVE the message at the end of this. Welcome Home.
As a player and lore reader since tempest block, Dominaria certainly is my true home since the beginning of my days with Magic. Awesome.

It is kinda already East Coast. It's in Indianapolis, Indiana. I'm down for a clan GMAD (or, CMaD or KTFMaD, if you follow, lol).
I wish I could as I live about three hours south. I've been wanting to go to a Con for years! It would be pretty cool. I'll tell my friends that are going to stop by and check it out though.

Desperate Ritual isn't really as good if you have to spend 2 of the mana on a Goblin Piker. Though the ability to color fix like that in red is a bit odd.
Meta Goblin piker and a 1-1 or possibly two two on turn to is definitely good
Jan 18, 2017Posted in: Custom Card CreationQuote from Svennihilator »Allied with Fire 1RR
Enchantment - Aura
Enchanted creature has haste.
Landfall — Whenever a land enters the battlefield under your control, gain control of enchanted creature until end of turn. Untap it.
Borozi, The Faltering 1RR
Planeswalker - Borozi
[-1]: Create a 1/1 red Goblin creature token with haste.
[-2]: Creatures you control get +2/+0 until end of turn.
[-3]: Creatures can’t block this turn.
Magma Dam 2RR
Creature - Wall
R: Magma Dam deals 1 damage to each creature without flying and each player.
Reckless Geomancer 1R
Creature - Human Shaman
When Reckless Geomancer enters the battlefield, destroy target land. Its controller may search his or her library for a basic land card, put it onto the battlefield, then shuffle his or her library.
Allied with Fire is fun! Rare or above for sure!
The planeswalker certainly will draw some attention to the fact it has no ultimate. Perhaps up -1 to -2 and make 2 or -3 and make three? Really needs more oomph for it to be interesting. I'd say -3: make 3 would be alright. Adds some depth to the choices you need to make wih it.
Magma Dam looks fun! Pyrohemia creature for the win! May need to cost more for the body, but only just R. Don't forget Defender.
Geomancer is pushed as it lets you drop of of your lands you used to cast and make another 1 drop the same turn. A Desperate Ritual with legs may be a little over the edge. But, it could also be just fine. I'm piss poor at evaluating tournament level cards.
All in all, these are the kinds of cards that I like in red, my least played color.

This thread used to be a thing. Maybe it could be again? Let's see if we can make it so again.
My magic interest has been somewhat reignited by Kaladesh. It is hitting all the right spots for me. I love vehicles and would like to build a control deck with Skysovereign. Said deck would have to include creature cards that could stall an opponent while still being tapped or trigger on tapping or untapping. I can't decide on B/U, R/B, or U/R. I think U/R will be the way to go maybe. Said deck would also need a cool name to go with it. Crews Control has a nice ring to it.
Outside of that, life has been pretty good. Just got ahold of an old playstation 1001 model someone threw out (it still works!). Ordered a mod chip for about $9 US and hope to be running that thing in no time. Next step: spend the $20 US for a PS2 chip. The 17 wire solder part has me worried as my soldering skills are very subpar. Man, I love modifying consoles, be it hardware or software related.
Other than all that, I've been working and spending time with kids and turning the big 3-5. I'm getting old
Show me what you got for my deck idea, your own idea, or just what's been happening with you. Let's get this up and running again!
Kaladesh has got me really excited too - lots of awesome cards to tinker with. I'm particularly liking the look of Paradoxical Outcome. If only I could complete my set of P9 for lots of Mox-fueled fun with it! With your Skysovereign, Consul Flagship deck, how about some of the inspired creatures? Aerie Worshippers and Satyr Nyx-Smith in particular look like good fits.
As for what's been happening with me - I've had a bit of a change with my career and hopefully will start training as an accountant soon, which I'm pretty excited for.
I went straight for the inspired creatures first! However, my take on the deck will require Mana to still be available for a counter if need be so that I may protect my vehicles as they do their thing. I'm looking for more mid-range options as opposed to late game.
Good luck with the new job! Accounting is not something I have been excited about at any point that I can remember, but best wishes to you. Especially if it increases your quality of life.
Sep 24, 2016Posted in: Custom Card CreationA bit more tweaking to balance Koth. Bolded text is new addition.
Crossed-outtext is removed stuff.
Planeswalker - Koth (M)
+1: Put a +1/+1 counter on up to one target noncreature basic Mountain or Plains you control and it becomes a 3/3 Elemental creature with defender. It has "If this creature blocks or isn’t blocked, sacrifice it at end of turn." It's still a land.
-2: Creatures you control with defender can attack this turn as though they didn't have defender.
Gain 1 life for each defender you control.
-6: You get an emblem with "Whenever a creature with defender you control dies, each opponent loses life equal to its toughness. You gain life equal to total of all life lost this way."
I am satisfied and would play in RGW Defender.dec. Well done!
