It's not gonna work. 7 is just too expensive, even with delve. The only deck that could hope to use it is QSI, but it sadly doesn't fit. It would be nice if wizards threw us a bone though. I've found time to get back into legacy, and I picked up my exact same list from 4 years ago haha.
May 4, 2012Does anyone know anything about the mtg china proxies? I recently uncovered a swords to plowshares, and lots of time spent googling yielded only this result:Posted in: Market Street Café
Some people have told me it might be a "yamaguchi" (that's not the correct spelling, but I think it's phonetically similar) token, and it was copyright infringement by a Chinese company. I don't want to scan it in case the latter is true, but the art is anime style, and the card back is an old school list for friggorid. Thanks for your help guys.

It's the only artifact hate that deals with dampning matrix, cage and torpor orb. Just a singleton Stomping Grounds. Also you can play mogg fanatic side for the reveilark combo and a tutorable answer to dark confidant.Posted in: Modern Archives - Proven

Yeah. Magical Christmasland.
I'm sorry, but this is probably the worse comparison I've ever seen made. You're talking about a 6 card combo by turn 3, vs a 2 card combo by turn 2 (assuming you're not land-screwed). Also, this thread is full of hilariousness and people talking about the applications of this card in formats they don't understand.
Mar 28, 2011SI was designed to be a 100% active deck, therefore the least reactive stuff you run, the better. It is not worth diluting the deck for narrow answers, especially answers that cost 1G in addition to whatever the answer costs. How do we beat trinisphere? Race it. Chalice of The Void? Race it. Counters? High threat density; remember that if you resolve just 1 draw 4 that's +3 CA, and FoW is -1 CA for them. Hate bears? Race them. Gaddock Teeg comes down turn 2 on the play at best, which gives you 8 cards to tendrils/etw/drop a belcher. Unlike the blue decks that run Meddling Mage, the decks that run Teeg are usually GW and run no disruption. This gives us an even better chance of turn 1 killing them.Posted in: Combo
Meddling mage is more problematic, because the deck is probably running FoW/Daze/counters in addition, which leads to bad times. But if you're expecting a lot of those types of decks, why are you playing SI in the first place? Considering aggro in general is almost always a buy, I have no problem facing 2-3 aggro decks for every control match, especially because control is winnable post SB. The only reactive card I have in my SB is 3 nature's claim, because without it the deck is literally answer-less to that stupid white leyline.
Mar 23, 2011This is the list I like to play.Posted in: Combo
1 [FUT] Dryad Arbor
1 [B] Bayou
1 [FD] Eternal Witness
1 [EVE] Odious Trow
4 [AL] Elvish Spirit Guide
1 [NE] Skyshroud Cutter
1 [MR] Goblin Charbelcher
2 [SC] Tendrils of Agony
4 [DIS] Infernal Tutor
4 [PT] Cruel Bargain
4 [SHM] Manamorphose
4 [FUT] Summoner's Pact
4 [MI] Lion's Eye Diamond
4 [TE] Lotus Petal
4 [MR] Chrome Mox
4 [TO] Cabal Ritual
4 [EX] Culling the Weak
4 [MI] Infernal Contract
4 [B] Dark Ritual
4 [MM] Land Grant
SB: 1 [MR] Goblin Charbelcher
SB: 4 [US] Carpet of Flowers
SB: 4 [SC] Xantid Swarm
SB: 4 [LRW] Thoughtseize
SB: 2 [WWK] Nature's Claim
Most lists are almost the same, but the manamorphose are flex spots. I prefer a balls to the wall approach, but you can probably put wild cantor, IGG, or Slithermuse instead.
Feb 22, 2011Posted in: Talk and EntertainmentQuote from DodavehuSo since we basically have the hangover problem solved, I have a question for all the chemically minded folks: How can you prevent blackouts while drinking? I used to never get them, but recently just about every time I have more than a few drinks (maybe 4+) I at least "sepia" out--only keeping vague memories of the later parts of the night.
Are there any remedies for that (aside from not drinking, duh)?
Eat a lot during the day. A full stomach slows the absorption of alcohol. I always get a nice, big super burrito from the local place if I'm sure it's gonna be a wild night.
Feb 10, 2011I really hope they don't reprint him. I picked one up from a flea market (luckily) for 20 dollars. He is definitely one of the silliest EDH generals out there, the stuff he can do with corpse dance and cabal coffers is just unfair. I don't want his value to drop ]=.Posted in: Market Street Café

I don't think demons are the reason for obesity in America.
This thread is full of conflicting information. Gonna have to do my own research.
Jan 14, 2011Posted in: Standard ArchivesQuote from .:MuRdOc:.I don't understand why anyone would run the Zendikar fetches with only one of the land types they can fetch. Mind explaining it? I've seen it quite a bit, but I just don't get it.
It's for deck thinning. Whether or not it's statistically significant is a different story though.
Jan 10, 2011Posted in: ComboQuote from D00msdayHas anyone found any good replacements for Slithermuse in the Pact version? It hasn't been good for me but I can't think of anything else for 4-CC (one off-color) that gives me a legit shot at winning that turn.

Honestly, Slithermuse doesn't need a replacement. If you're really insistent I would replace it with 1 IGG, but it seems you already run 2. 2 IGG is waaaay overkill in the pact list. I don't run either Slithermuse or IGG, but instead 4 mana morphose, 1 belcher and 2 tendrils. It is much more balls to the wall, but its also streamlined so that I have no problems building up a lethal tendrils. It's common to run either 1 Slithermuse or 1 IGG in PSI, but definitely not both, nor 1 of each.
EDIT: Also, you are missing Eternal Witness I realized. Big big big big big mistake, witness is the stone cold nuts. Seriously, a PSI list is sub optimal if it's not running witness in its main 60. For reference, my list is -1 tendrils, -1 belcher, -2 IGG, -1 Wild Cantor, -1 Slithermuse, +4 manamorphose, +1 witness, +1 Skyshroud Cutter. Skyshroud cutter isn't the best card around, but it is the best of all the options we have.
