Life's Legacy: Delving into Delver
  • posted a message on Need input on casual format homebrew duel decks with strong lore/block theme meeting "new order" archetypes
    I am doing a similar battle box. I have 10 decks that represent each Ravnica guilds. But it's not just a representation of the guilds but also different MTG competitive strategies. It is also in the budget side, so mostly commons/uncommons. Each deck does run a "marquee" (rare/mythic) spell and an appropriate legendary creature.

    I have the following guild/archetypes:

    U/W: [[Isochron scepter]] control with the marquee spell as [[Terminus]]. Your basic control deck.

    U/B: [[Standstill]] based Draw/Go control that messes with your opponent's head rather than straight up controlling the board. Runs spells like [[Fact or Fiction]] and tons of permission. The ultimate bluff deck.

    B/R: [[Reanimator]] "combo" deck. The classic

    R/G: "Zoo" aggro/burn deck. Undercosted beaters like [[Kird Ape]] and burn as finishers.

    G/W: basic Ramp midrange deck that runs [[Enlisted Wurm]] and [[Llanowar Sentinel]]s to gain board advantage.

    W/B: monarch midrange deck. I based this deck from Junk decks that run discard, removal and creatures that gain incremental advantage.

    U/R: [[Peregrine Drake]]+[[Archaeomancer]]+[[Ghostly Flicker]] combo deck. I wanted to create a combo deck that is akin to a solitaire game play. It is mostly in the battle box as means to teach new players about combo decks.

    B/G: [[Tortured Existence]] midrange dredge deck. I wanted to have a deck that runs a dedicated engine card.

    R/W: Soldier matters "tribal" aggro deck.

    G/W: Tempo deck. This is actually the deck that I am not set on how to build. It will be a Tempo deck but I still can't decide whether I should build it around [[Delver of Secrets]], [[Lorescale Coatl]] or evolve creatures. In my deck box, this is still under construction. It used to be an Infect Tempo deck but it doesn't play well in multiplayer which what the battle box is played half of the time.

    I hope my ideas help you with your own battle/duel deck ideas. Good luck.

    Good. Time to get back into Standard. So ends the worse period of the format since Caw (the period defined as the bans from Copter onward), and hopefully all the big announced changes on the horizon will keep the meta diverse for the foreseeable future.


    I actually enjoyed Caw-Blade standard. It sucked because everyone played it but the mirror was so skill intensive. But then this was before Batterskull.

    I'm betting it will be a bit boring. GB Elves, BR Vampires, UR Wizards, WG Humans.


    Nope director said one of the tribes will be completely u exspected.

    None of those are unexspected.


    It's probably gonna be Dwarves or Constructs/Golems/something artifact

    I feel like this card is relevant to this archetype.

    Sure the opponent can play mind games on you, but ultimately what goes in the graveyard wouldn't matter.

    What do you guys think? I think it being an instant is a boon to the card.

    Seriously, the Khans lands are the ones they decide to reprint? Not even Mirage fetches?


    This. It would have been great if they have Mirage fetches. Synergy with Brainstorm and Deathrite Shaman for draft. Naw...

    I have a feeling that Akroma will be number 1 at Mythic. It also is a reanimator target.

    With the enchantment theme, I can see Oblivion Ring in there instead of Arrest.

  • posted a message on New Format on Its Way Edit No it's not.
    Remember when Type 1 (Vintage) got too expensive and WotC created Type 1.5 (Legacy)?

    Remember when Legacy got too expensive and WotC created Modern?

    Maybe WotC is creating a new format because Modern got really expensive...

    Haven't seen this here: http://www.manaleak.com/store/brain-bottle-p-52896.html

    It reads


    Brains in a Bottle 2

    Artifact (rare)

    Artifact

    1, T: Put a charge counter on Brain in a Bottle, you may cast an instant or sorcery spell with converted mana cost equal to the number of charge counters on Brain in a Bottle from your hand without paying its mana costs.

    3, T: Remove X charge counters from Brain in a Bottle: Scry X.

    If angels are evil this time around, I wonder who will be the good guys other than some of the humans.


    The Vampires...

    Really, because their food supply is running low.

  • posted a message on Green Midrange
    I want to push Midrange in Green. Right now, my green creatures consists of : mana elves, cheap beatdown creatures and over the top late game creatures.

    I don't really have any in between guys, around 3-4 casting cost dudes that actually have utility. The only things that come to mind are Phantom Centaur (great against control) and Eternal Witness. I also want to tie this in with G/W as I don't really have an archetype for it.

    In white, I have support for midrange creatures but looking for suggestions for green ones.

    Also, would you guys put (green/white specific) creatures that just shuts down certain archetypes?

    How does people feel about Dark Deal? It discards dead hands and partially disrupts your opponent's hand.
