    Not gonna lie, this does not make me happy. Shes strong for sure but also super lame.
    Please tell me people will not just build ye ole superfriends/good stuff deck where they tutor up everything and every game plays out the same. Yeah, not gonna happen.
    Hard pass for me.

    Big commander staple for all those that can't afford fetches (me)

    Not sure this is gonna be cheap. It is still a rare in a $6-per-pack product. I wish this was an uncommon. Easy include in all my EDh decks.

    I think its black because of the flash. Red normally doesn't get flash and black is now secondary (or tertiary??) for flash.

    I am curious how they flavor this. Black removal has always been about killing living things which ssems off with enchantments.
    Something like countercurses or some kind of blood magic that requires life payment maybe. I would like to see black explore life payment mechanics more.

    Generally speaking, its a good thing to have a third color be able to combat enchantments. They always felt least vurnerable.

    Exile the top card of your library. Until the end of your next turn, you may play that card.

    What are your expectations of the mana base? Whats your budget? It heavily depends on both.

    I have a 5c deck with a super budget mana base, but I run a lot of green for ramp and fixing. It works pretty well.
    If you're going budget I recommend you stay away from 2-color lands unless your deck is heavily focussed on 1-2 colors, only splashing the rest.

    If you got the monies:

    I really hope we do not get more 4-color stuff and I don't expect we will. It's just so unfocussed and lacks multifacetted flavor.

    Finishing the 2-color cycle would be cool I guess, although I don't know if another (potentially busted) experience counter cycle would be the way to go.

    In terms of what color combinations need it the most, wedges are least populated, especially Jeskai. They somehow never got a legend outside the jeskai commander deck and Kahns block (I'm ignoring partners here).

    When ~ enters the battlefield, destroy all other artifacts. Put a +1/+1 on ~ for each artifact destroyed this way.
    When ~ leaves the battlefield, create a colorless Magnet artifact token with: "t, sacrifice this artifact: Target nonland permanent becomes an artifact in addition to its other types until end of turn."

  • posted a message on What are fun proactive decks
    I recommend Mayael the Anima its super proactive, very fun to play and can be adjusted to fit any powerlevel (outside cEDH). It's also a great deck to give to people who are new to EDH. Spinning the wheel is just so satisfying.

    Edit: Also, Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer. Super explosive, very proactive and also not overplayed, most people never played against a Brudiclad deck before. FOr a deck that wins through the attack step, it plays a lot of unusual cards. By far the funnest decks I have build in the last year.

  • posted a message on Has anyone ever completed a deck?
    I think it depends on what your goal is. If its power level or performance, yeah I think its possible to finish a deck, although for me that would mean its no longer a "work in progress" as opposed to "never change a card again". However I like to change around my decks a lot, tweak themes, include new subthemes, expand on strengths and cover weaknesses... but also cut cards that prove to be opressive or unfun to play against. As long as there is something to be done with a deck, it feels like a living thing to me, yearning for growth and grooming. As soon as a deck is done, its... done. Kinda dead.

    Yeah I also would have thought the death count would be higher given that this is a WAR!

    Ajani, Jaya, Dovin, Ral Zarek and Sarkhan were all be people who could have died and would have had a good run and decent story arcs. And would have given more oompf to the story. Gideon feels a bit like Elspeth 2.0 so I am actually a bit disappointed with that.

    I'm actually quite sad that Gideon dies. Admittedly, he's not a very interesting character, but I liked the idea that his suffering comes from the fact that he is quasi-immortal himself while his friends die around him. I would have preferred if the death of some Gatewatch members would be a recall to Gideon's backstory (Tragic Arrogance) on a bigger and more dramatic scale. THAT would give some edge to him for interesting writing.

    Seems in line with what we already know. Nobody likes to play against MLD and cards that impose a hard lock or super harsh penalties/taxes. Cards that stop players from partticipating in the game, in short. I agree.

    This got me good. I saw it late last night when I didn't have my guard up yet for April 1st. I was halfway through creating a thread here when it hit me... I guess all I can do is relish the memories of those 5 minutes of sol ring ban bliss.
