    Can really take advantage of the discarded cards w/ reanimation options, flashback, and cards that play from the graveyard. Will make for an interesting Commander build.

    I, for one, like that it's a 3cc that starts off as a 2/3. Kraken themed decks are slow and needed some quickness to survive. Not to mention it interacts w/ a lot of different casual deck styles, like card draw, tokens, +1/+1 counters, and sacrifice (the tokens, of course).

    Strange how many of the first responders here immediately point out the 2/3 body. It fills niches and I love the idea of independent tentacles breaking off and causing havoc.

  • posted a message on Theros Beyond Death - what Gods do we see returning?
    So far (as of today) Athreos is the only returning God. What other Gods do we want to see returning? Is it just a hope/wish, or is there anything backing up your speculation? We do not have a book/story to back up any claims, so we must look for clues elsewhere, such as card flavor text (really late here on the west coast of the U.S., so I am not going to look myself).

    Wow!!! Red/Green graveyard hate. This feels very side-boardy. I can see main-decking 2 copies with 2 in the sideboard.

    Ummm, Feyd.. you really outdid yourself... All are amazing. Really digging the Sterling Grove w/ the elven Santa and the fully decorated trees in the background. Kind of amazing how just adding drops to a scene can make it go from ordinary to festive (well... Jackson Pollack sorta made a name for himself out of it, lol).

    Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and a Happy Festivus for the Rest-of-Us!!!

    OK, just as said before, will post the spoils of evil here once they arrive (page 1 is best, right {in a poorly attempted Russian accent}

    Bob, is Wednesday or Thursday a safe guess for when you will be sending out?

    Side-note: too bad there is only 10 of us participating out of ALL of the users. Would've hoped more Admin. (from either site) would've gotten involved. I did mine in one sitting, watching Youtube.

    *** NOTE: will edit out most of this to show off the bling-bling Grin Grin Grin ***

    So mixed on these... love 'em AND hate 'em. Think there is too much "noise" going on. If they were only toned down a bit.

    Like taking the nice kid in school that gets along w/ everyone... them getting him hooked on Ritalin.

    Casual fun; limited bomb. W/ devotion on the lose, looks like there'll be a push for mono-colored builds in Limited.

  • posted a message on Full set of 40 Dual Lands : looking for advice
    Sorry if I'm late to the party (this advice can only help if you haven't sold them):

    Drop $50 on cards that are popular in Standard. Sell those cards on EBay, getting some positive feedback (no said this would be easy). You'll have some feedback as a reference. If the $50 in cards isn't enough, repeat the process until you have enough that you feel adequate and trusted.

    Now this is where you'll be going against your advice because selling 40 duals is a very big amount for anyone to spend at once. You might (and should) maximize the profits by selling play-sets of 4 on EBay. Sure, that's 10 packages instead of one. BUT I think it gives better odds of them selling and better odds of getting as close to market value as you can [a store, online or IRL will give anywhere from 50% to 70% of market value; selling apps like OfferUp and LetGo will mostly be low ballers (this includes FB marketplace and Craigslist)].

    Another option that might work in your best interest is some of the "high end" selling groups on Facebook.

    Good luck!

  • posted a message on Rakdos, the Showstopper - help me find a direction (aside from tribal)
    I have been slowly adding demons, devils and imps to a deck box (I put all of my decks-in-progress in deck boxes) for a new Rakdos, the Showstopper Commander build.

    I am not too sure what direction to take the deck, outside of demon/devil/imp tribal. What do most of these creatures have in common or what can synergize with them? I just went to edhrec.com and it helped a little w/ creatures to get and support cards, but it doesn't help w/ a direction.

    Since he does play around w/ coin flipping, I can have the one or two cards that help w/ that, but adding other coin flip cards will just add flavor, but not synergy.

    Here are some ideas off the top of my head, but not too sure how they will play out in this format:
    1) No cards in hand - so Hellbent can work as well. But what else goes well w/ that?
    2) A lot of demons have sacrifice triggers... is this a good idea?
    3) Demons also have damage to me, so I can play around w/ that... but reducing my life constantly will make winning difficult, so I would need to counterbalance that w/ life gain.
    4) Steal creatures and sacrifice them to the demons

    I am open to other ideas or if any of the above ideas are good, let me know.

  • posted a message on Throne of Eldraine - guessing what cards represent and color shifts
    I'm besides myself. You schmucks have nothing to say {watch now a mod will say something, and just to give me A) a warning [or] B) an infraction. But like all good art, at least it'll warrant a reaction of some kind. Better than being ignored}.
