    what we want is silver bordered , non - legal , VINTAGE pre-constructed decks
    .


    But... but... what about the reserv....

    Yeah, I got nothing.

    Silver border cards are fairly steadfast in the realm of unset territory. We're more likely to see Blacker Lotus or something g really goofy like White Lotus but non-legal versions of Vintage legal cards? Might as well print gold borders again.


    I'd also like silver bordered or gold bordered reserve list cards. It would be great. Or people will just keep buying the fakes online. Underground sea for about $3 is super appealing to a lot of people. Getting that silver bordered Wizards official also for $3 would be nice.

    Unsets are fun, I've played a bunch of them. It's fun for a weekend or two.


    Not happening.


    Foiled again by the reserve list. I guess we shall all have to purchase our EDH dual lands not from Wizards.
    A little unsure as to these being premade decks. Boosters would have been fine. Then again rarity doesn't make much sense for non-tournament playable cards Makes it easier to get all of the cards.

    I was fine with return to Zendikar. But they really need to stop these repeat sets. I'm probably going to like it but ugh..... Sure, Ravnica 4 coming soon!

    Your deck is a little bit better. Now you have to test it out. I did miss that ability trigger for dragons. I'd rather play frost titan to tap lands, but I do see the appeal of flying, vigilance and multiple possible triggers. If you want to test online without having to make proxies. Use cockatrice. It's https://cockatrice.us/. You might want to label your games casual modern. Then again you might be better of just playing with your friends. Real life play and advice is the best.

    Just to give you some comparisons. Akroan Jailer is not playable because you aren't going to have the 3 mana to activate the ability.
    https://gatherer.wizards.com/
    A short gather search shows me for the same effect I could play Gideon's Lawkeeper. You could even not pay mana with Niblis of the Urn, Court Street Denizen or
    Minister of Impediments.
    In general I like Wall of Frost but what are you doing for creature that fly?
    Abzan Advantage and Dance of the Skywise seem pointless in your deck. You should replace them with removal spells. Such as path to exile. If you need an all purpose killer play generous gift. If you're goal is to slow the game. You need to slow it all the way down and gain more resources than your opponent. You're playing blue but don't have a lot of card draw. There are a lot of 1 mana cantrips available to you such as opt. Or bigger mana jace, the mind sculpter.
    Again my suggestion is to go into the established forums and look at the other decks. You don't have to play the cards as those decks but a lot of decks don't play cards that cost more then three mana unless the spells are going to win you the game. Your deck can afford to play larger mana spells but you have to maintain board control. There are decks that don't play creatures. Not that many these days but they do exist.

    The deck seems slow and over costed mana wise for modern. You can maybe play it casually. Find a basic burn deck. Go into the modern established forum. Put it together with proxies then play your deck against it. It you can't win at least 50% of the time then it's not worth playing.

    Yes, you can get the extended art and the special art cards in regular packs. I think I got 2-4 from the booster box that I opened. I did open two booster boxes.

    They seem good. No complaints.

    Eventually people will get tired of the prices and look for "alternate methods" of obtaining these special edition cards. There are a lot of websites that print and sell unofficial printings of cards because of the high price. This is cause and effect. The masters editions created a 3rd dark market. In 6 months these collectors products will be on the dark market. If you wanted all of the Zendiar expeditions and an array of foil judge promos you can buy that on the dark market for $139.90, 52 cards. Wooded Foothills Zendikar Expeditions is $134.86 on tcgplayer but I can get one for about $3.

    I do not endorse counterfeiting, but ignoring that it exists like this websites does is stupid. I'm also not going to stop complaining about Wizards bad business practices of super premium products.

    They really are losing their minds with this MSRP $449.99 price. The collectors boosters have standard only cards. It's like they learned nothing from Shards of Alara. When those were selling for $10 and no one wanted them. $31.90 for a collectors standard only booster is just dumb. There will be 4-5 desirable extended art cards and the rest will not be.
    Here is what they should have done. Regular booster booster box. Slide in a Collectors booster into every single one. Don't label it. Happy surprise when you get one. There is no way I would ever pay $250 for Midnight Clock (Extended Art), regular midnight clock is $0.65.
    Hard pass on any collector booster product.

    There isn't much downside to this. You play it on turn 4. You play your next spell for free. You're out of mana at that point anyway. So You just need to plan out what your turn 5 looks like. You have the equivalent of 10 mana on turn 5. There must be something that works really well with this and the adventure mechanic. You increase your decks spell density by playing double spells. Such as commands or planeswalkers that cost 5 Angrath, the Flame-Chained. You can even play the planes walkers deck spells Angrath's Fury to Angrath, Minotaur Pirate. 5 mana Cataclysmic Gearhulk . You could wrath, then play something. Cleansing Nova into Demanding Dragon. That seems funs.

    I missed that on turn 5 you actually have 5,5,5. For mana. There is probably something stupid good you could cast for free then kicker something for up to 5.

  • posted a message on [ELD] What's with all the creature creep?
    There is power creep every set. It's not good for game design at that could reach a top level of creep. Then they would have to reset to a lower game play level. If you have played long enough we have reached top level power creep before in Urza's Destiny I think. Then Nemesis, Prophecy, Invasion block, Odyssey block, Onslaught block, so that's 3 years of lower level stuff. Then Mirrodin block came out and card design was over powered again. Then Champions of Kamigawa block came out and it was weak.

    They aren't making a balanced game anymore but they need to sell booster packs. They have been dividing the power creep into tribal categories. I can't think of what the last down swing set was? Shadows over Innistrad? I'm not sure if there was a down swing.

    All of the games power goes into creatures or planeswalkers these days. We all think fatal push was so great but they had to print it. Creature kill needed to cost 1. In the same way Bontu's Last Reckoning needed to be pushed to 3 mana because giving creatures -2-2 these days in black for 3 mana Infest tends to kill nothing.

    Wizards doesn't make a balanced game anymore. Creatures and planeswalkers have all of the power in the game. Anything else get's lazy design. It would be nice if there were better sorcery speed spells. They are always making something pushed. Some spells even have no draw back and are pushed these days. That 5/5 beast for 3. It can block, it just can't attack unless you have a 1/1. Lovestruck Beast. Since the anti-draw back is built into the card. there might as well be no draw back at all. The other red card Irencrag Feat Probably could have been better.It would have been nice to have
    Seething Song back. With the same limiting effect but at 1RR sorcery. It should have had a different effect if you were able to pay the 7 red. Unfortunately red according to wizards is only damage, chaos, or temporary permanent stealing these day. No land destruction. It could have been if you get to 7 red gain control of up to 7 permanents until end of turn, untap them, they gain haste until end of turn.

  • posted a message on [ELD] Andrew Cuneo - Deafening silence
    As other posters have said, it's okay. I'm picturing playing against the current version of burn. It's easy enough to play around. Burn plays a lot more creatures these days. 12 creatures. It limits the sorcery burn spells only. So 12 card slots are limited. While I just play instants on my opponents turn.

    If I were to play control it would limit the back and forth. I could mana leak to some benefit. Problem is there are a large number of creature heavy decks that don't care about this effect. Humans and Merfolk aren't effected.

    I'd also rather not see very recent standard cards that are worthless re-printed. Sorcerous Spyglass $1.85. There is now a 4th Opt Artwork. I guess they expect Sorcerous Spyglass to see some play in the upcoming standard.
