Looking forward to testing with Emrakul, the promised end. Thinking she might be good as an alternative threat when playing against a deck running path. turn 1 map, turn 2 crack map. Turn 3 achieve Tron - play all is dust. Turn 4 play second tower and drop Emrekul for 10. Not Sure if that's better than just dropping Ulamog t4 though?
Quote from delfam »Seems like a fair trade, the deck is worth around $580 in cash, but you only get full retail when trading. You always get less when trying to get cash for cards so this seems like a fair deal. I think I'd take the deck if you really need it or want to play it, if not maybe try to get $500.
Quote from FoodChainGoblins »Pile A - Foil Might of Old Krosa
Pile B - Khans Bloodstained Mire
I have no need for a card that's only used in Infect. I can get an extra Bloodstained Mire (I have 4 Khans and 2 Onslaught already).
Quote from amurphcs »A word on anticipate...since most of what we would be digging for is an instant or sorc, wouldnt peer through depths be a better option?
Think of it as, i can dig three but reveal 3 lands, and put a land into my hand, or i can dig 5, find my answer, and still probably draw a land next turn
Quote from denki_aka »Hey guys/gals,
I've been playing Ad Nauseam as my sole modern deck for about a year now and have been absolutely loving it. I tend to switch between the classical, spoils, and wish lists a tonne, but I've had lots of success with a glittering wish build recently. That said I need some expert advice regarding the post-board Bring to Light Scapeshift match-up (regardless of what version of Ad Naus you run) - as it is everywhere in my local meta. It's a bit weird - I know, but all the local splinter twin players seem to have collectively migrated to Scapeshift...
Here is the list I am currently testing, for reference:
DeckMagic OnlineOCTGN2ApprenticeBuy These Cards
Lands (20)4 City of Brass4 Gemstone Mine2 Mana Confluence4 Razorverge Thicket2 Reflecting Pool4 Seachrome CoastCreatures (5)1 Laboratory Maniac4 Simian Spirit GuideArtifacts (8)4 Lotus Bloom4 Pentad PrismSorceries (12)4 Serum Visions4 Sleight of Hand4 Glittering WishInstants (12)3 Pact of Negation4 Angel's Grace1 Lightning Storm4 Ad NauseamEnchantments (3)3 Phyrexian UnlifeSideboard:1 Slaughter Pact3 Ethereal Haze1 Guttural Response1 Wear//Tear1 Vexing Shusher1 Firespout1 Wargate4 Leyline of Sanctity1 Bring to Light1 Dragonlord Dromoka
So, game 1 is basically a bye as we all know with a good hand, however game 2 gets a lot tougher (aside from the magical-christmasland nut draws). An early Slaughter Games naming The Only Sensible Target is a regular occurance, and although I can wish for a Dragonlord Dromoka to start the beats, it doesn't always get there in time. Early Remands keep me behind on tempo and without the mana to go off until the opponent finds a Bring To Light into Slaughter Games.
So a couple questions regarding the post-board BTL Scapeshift matchup:
Do you board in Leyline of Sanctity? If so, what do you take out? I've tested against a good friend of mine who plays the deck a bunch, but boarding into leyline always feels bad as it dilutes the decks gameplan whilst not really providing much resistance (unless I can get a hand with enough Permission to force the combo through), due to the presence of Cryptic Command.What general strategies do you employ post-board, and how successful have you been?
Thanks for the help, and as always any comments or advice regarding the list is always appreciated
Quote from Chuu »Foil Dragonlord Atarka, or $20 in trade credit at my LGS.
Basically, I am wondering if foil cards with EDH potential are a hold or sell in general. I have no immediate need for cards or cash, and am willing to stick it in my binder for years.
Quote from izzetgood »Pile A:
Foil ZEN Arid Mesa
Foil AVR Cavern of Souls
Foil EXP Strip Mine
SDCC Jace, Vryn's Prodigy
I've been on the fence about selling my SDCC set and then someone offered this to me on Deckbox. Thoughts?
