    Quote from Macabre »
    If you ban one type of tutor like demonic tutor then you warp what the color choices people use in edh away from black. Technically rampant growth is a tutor, that also puts a permenant strait in to play. Is that ban worthy? It doesn't seem far to ban demonic tutor variants without also hitting all of the green land-ramp and creature spells, the white equipment and enchantment tutors, the blue spell tutors, and the joke of red tutors in gamble and sarkhan's triumph.

    My issue with people bringing up this topic is usually similar to my issue with people wanting to ban fast mana. If you take away all the fast mana-rocks then competitive decks are going to be all semi-green to use all the 1cmc mana dorks and land-ramp. It would be terrible for the entire format from casual to competitive.


    Neither of these points are really true. How often are you grabbing a land with Demonic Tutor? Unless you are grabbing Urborg/Coffers, likely never. Green ramp spells have minimal impact on the game, at least in comparison to other tutors. You aren’t tutoring up a game winning/saving answer with Rampant Growth.

    Enter tapped isn't an issue, consider Llanowar Reborn does something similar without chance to untap. Like many other cards in the set, they are aiming to bolster mono-color decks, which I approve.


    But it has to be untapped to be a Llanowar Reborn.

    It reminds me of Volcanic Offering.


    This^ is such a good card, todays card really isn’t. That “kicker” requirement is steep. I really don’t see why it couldn’t have been given the Adamant mechanic. It’s really expensive as is and I think that punishes it enough to warrant the additional effect.

    It’s splashy, don’t get me wrong, but I think I’ll always wish to see another card when I draw it outside of very few decks.

    This seems pretty good. Removing a single counter no matter the damage is good stuff.

    I can’t believe nobody has mentioned Dowsing Dagger. I think that makes this card explode. It creates tokens to keep some form of board presence, and obviously it ramps +3. Being able to fetch it with SFM is pretty good too. Run some Return to the Ranks and Rally the Ancestors for recursion. Sigil of Vigor helping you finish? I dunno, I just think there is a lot of potential there, that puts a ton of pressure on your opponents.


    I'm confused by what you mean, here. Dowsing Dagger gives the tokens to your opponent. That's why it's not very good.


    Oh wow, yeah, I missed that part... again. I did the same thing during Ixalan spoilers. It was late, I did a scryfall search for 2cmc equipment with an equip cost < 3. Woof.

  • posted a message on Best commander for a Eldrazi deck?
    I suppose it depends on what you mean by an Eldrazi Deck. Are you talking Eldrazi tribal? Or running the more iconic ones like the titans and the annihilator versions from OG Zendikar.

    If you’re going ‘Drazi tribal, I’d suggest something that helps with the colorless aspect. Kruphix is most definitely a good one. But, it’s not quite as synergistic if you’re running some of the lower CMC creatures.

    My best/most fun Eldrazi deck was a version I made for Nissa, Vastwood Seer. Having access to some land fetching in the CZ really smoothed out the clunkiness of having quite a few high CMC in my deck. I didn’t play it long because it wasn’t very powerful or consistent, but it was fun when you could get that early ramp to pay off.

    As been said countless times before "blue now gets a 3/3 for 3 (with upside!), how times have changed."


    Well, to be fair, it is both triple-U and also legendary. Patron Wizard isn’t too far off. I don’t think it’s too much of a push.

    Though, the legendary supertype might as well not exist, I’ll play 4 of these when I can considering it scales to the game and also achieves its secondary effect before having to choose which to keep.

    People are overlooking the fact this is an instant. You can't Lava Coil a creature in response to them attacking.


    Only dealing 3, and just to a body, isn’t very good. The exile part is going to be irrelevant more times than the instant speed is going to be relevant.

    I will say this, though. If an equipment.dec becomes prevalent, then you’ll probably play this and Lava Coil. The only way this is good is if there are enough good equip targets with Toughness < 3, because this would allow a time psuedo-timewalk and permanent form of removal. It’s niche.

    interesting that the royalty are females with feminine males, the knights are females, the nobles are females. Basically any masculine role is given to a female. What. the. ****.

    Well Female knights are kinda new but we have Jeanne D'Arc as the real life exemple. It is not that common but in a magic world they can take this liberty.
    For male Knight, the legendary black uncommon looks prety british and masculine. The high king even if he looks like a fat lazy guy he is prety much desing with Travis Fimmel in mind (warcraft and vikings).
    I have to agree that soo far mostly of the legendary noble and knight cards looks like females but you know, you are the one that don't know nothing about equity or equality soo shut up and stop the bigoty you toxi male troll of this forum.

    But really, lets stop complaining, there is no point in it, i try to be as neutral as i can but lets be honest: points of view will not change no matter if you give opinion and hipotesis based on studies and academic works, people will ignore people that they thing does not think like them.(they) Will use anything they can to disclaim your thoughts even if their argument is only about you and not your ideas.
    Get over it.

    The sooner we swallow our pride and acept that people don't want equality and that people don't think everyone is equal (that some groups of people need help because of their skin color, shape of eyes/nose, sex, etc) the happier we will be.

    Jokes aside.

    BTW think your comment was a bit salty, the card fits a trope of medieval-modern woman = the black widow. In german for exemple there was a woman that poisoned 2 husbands, 4 of her children, her brother, and some of her neighbours (this in 19~~) this trope is common in medieval stories and faery tales.


    Both of you are in the wrong. What’s worse, I’m sure the remaining “equality brigade” on both side will show up shortly and turn yet another thread into a sh*t show.

    @CCC- Dude, let it go. This isn’t the forum for it, not only because it has little relevance, but you’re opinion here on this sub is definitely going to be in the minority. It doesn’t really foster any relevant discussion, either, regardless of how valid your point is.

    @Lealak-

    you are the one that don't know nothing about equity or equality soo shut up and stop the bigoty you toxi male troll of this forum.


    This is a problem. Instead of brushing this off as simply some dude with some misplaced “anger”, you address it like a child. Why the need to apply a label? You comment here was far more “toxic” than anything triple-c said. You’re looking for a negative reaction to your comment, and I hope you get one. You can have opposing, and maybe more valid, views without being a white-knight tool. Yeah, I said it.

    I don’t want to tell mods what to do, but this sh*t is out of control. Peeps on both sides of the fence need a taste of the ban hammer because this site has gone of the freaking rails.

    Here’s something I found mildly amusing.

    This is the first ever Mono-G legendary beast.

    How cool is that?

    Dude seriously. No one wants to hear your audition for America's Next Top Victim.


    I don’t really want to get into this, but there are literally hundreds of thousands of people who profit off of those auditions.

    I really wish the cost reduction wasn’t dependent on only your attacking creatures, but it’s a solid card nonetheless. At least you can wait until after blockers are declared to play this Uber-Combat trick.

    Question: Can you equip this after First Strike damage to deal the remaining strike?

    Dies to so much removal in modern - I know this is a hack complaint, but for such a tank, you'd think it should have a chance to connect. A revolted Push, Path, and Magmatic Sinkhole all take care of this... Wish it has some sort of mana leak ability stapled to it as defense.


    True, but it puts a ton of pressure on your opponent. Dealing 4, and killing a PW while being able to break through some token defense is a pretty impressive feat for 4 mana. I do agree though, I feel like it could have lost the anti-“fog” tech and gained some form of protection.
