How are you liking Geode Golem? Seems sweet on turn 3 with haste, but i imagine a lot of the time it is not doing as much.
That was my first time getting it in a game, but I figure with a 7-cmc commander, I could use all the help i can get.
Apr 16, 2019On monday I was playing my Sheoldred, Whispering One deck and I had a reasonable hand, but then one of my opponents enabled me to do one of the craziest things I've ever done.Posted in: Commander (EDH)
On turn 2, I played Apprentice Necromancer, and then the next player (on a Neheb 1.0 deck) played out Anvil of Bogardan.
On my next turn, I discarded Geode Golem to Anvil and then reanimated it with Apprentice Necromancer. This let me swing in and cast my 7-drop commander for free on turn 3 before anyone had a chance to set up any sort of board presence. It was hella sweet.

Fair enough. Thanks for the suggestions anyway.
Apr 15, 2019I like all of these, but DoDS is my least favourite of them. My personal favourite is Rakdos, the Showstopper, though. It has a much better of chance of wiping out important creatures no matter what part of the game you're in, even if the effect is unreliable.Posted in: Commander (EDH)
I'm biased, though, since I've been really digging the deck I built around Rakdos in the past few weeks.
Apr 15, 2019The deck looks really interesting.Posted in: Commander (EDH)
I've been considering building a Yuriko deck, but I wouldn't make it quite as cut-throat. I do like the idea of topdeck manipulation with her though.
A question: How useful is Mothdust Changeling? Yes, it triggers Yuriko, but it seems otherwise unimpressive vs. another actual ninja.

Mogg Infestation is on the wish list, along with Moggcatcher. I just haven't gotten around to acquiring them. As for the other suggestions, did you read what I wrote about the rules for the deck?Quote from ISBPathfinder »Any thoughts on Repercussion? It could be fun as your goblin horde moves to their death. I like the interaction with Ib.
Your high mountain count would love to have Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx among them. I understand though if its a little to expensive though.
Mogg Infestation seems like a flavorful add. It can be a wrath if need be for someone else or just pile out some goblins
Legion Warboss its another sweet goblin token maker.
Yes, I should add it to the deck, I know.
Apr 15, 2019Before you look at this deck, you must understand one thing and one thing only: Goblins are stupid.Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
I don't mean that they're worthless or incapable, I just mean that they were stuck holding the door on the day when brains were being handed out.
Because your average goblin is dumber than the bag of rocks that they haul around, they need to be told that they're a goblin pretty explicitly, and when we're talking about goblins on Magic cards, they're not even smart enough to look down at their type lines, just up at their card names.
This is a deck for those goblins.
Led by the illustrious Ib Halfheart, this ragtag group of goblin are joined together by the bond of being named exactly what they are. Even the spells they use have to explicitly call out that they're for goblins. This is no place for clever goblins like Krenko, Mob Boss or even the more keenly aware Dragon Fodder. No, this is a place for goblins that are exactly what it says on the tin, or in the card name in this case.
Oh, sorry, is that format not helpful for you? Ok, try this:
All joking aside, I had had the idea for this deck for several years, ever since I started to consider possibly making a proper goblin deck. But proper goblin decks are boring and samey and just end up as Krenko token piles with lots of lords and the like, and I didn't want that. Instead, I started to realize just how many goblin cards had "Goblin" in the name, or the regional variant, such as Mogg, Akki, Boggart, etc. on various planes. I figured that there had to be enough of these cards to throw together a deck that was at least not total trash and so I finally set out to do so a couple of months ago.
The rules for this deck are simple: If the card name doesn't include "Goblin" or a regional/planar variant (and isn't a basic mountain), then it can't go in the deck. It doesn't matter if the card is the best tribal goblin card ever printed, it needs to have it in the name or else it doesn't go in the deck. With that limitation in mind, I set out to make the best possible deck I could under this restriction.
Finding a commander was something of a challenge, as I wanted the commander to be a paragon of general goblin-ness and not have a regional variant in the name. This left me with three options: Squee, Goblin Nabob, Ib Halfheart, Goblin Tactician, and Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer. Slobad was immediately excluded from the running because he cared about artifacts, which didn't really mesh with what the deck wanted to do. Squee would have been a fine commander, but the card is rather plain and would be unlikely to be cast if there were any other option at that cost. Ib, on the other hand, is a crafty goblin, capable of leading his people to great triumph, or at least only moderate defeat, and thus he was chosen.
Is this deck any good? Heck no. But it's an awful lot of fun and a silly budget deck that's great to pull out between more serious games. It's almost killed one player, though, but it's much more likely to fold like a cheap lawn chair to the first board wipe that's cast in a game. Doesn't matter though, still gobbed.

UpdateMagic OnlineOCTGN2ApprenticeBuy These Cards Out:
1x Tempt with Discovery
1x Freed from the Real
1x Nature's Lore
1x Teferi's Response
My local playgroup is too wise to be tempted these days, and I finally got my hands on a Portal version of Nature's Lore, so yet another 2-CMC ramp spell joins the pile.
Freed from the Real can only be used to make infinite mana and doesn't have the protection/evasion/1-shot uses of Pemmin's Aura, so I cut it for a narrow but hilarious counterspell that can protect my commander.
Apr 14, 2019Once I've read all the threads I want in a forum or subforum, I would like to be able to mark the rest as read, but I've only be able to get the "mark all as read" option to work on the main forum page, thus marking every thread in every forum as read, which isn't what I want. Is this a known issue or is there a way around it?Posted in: Forum Software Feedback and Bug Reports
Apr 14, 2019Posted in: Commander (EDH)Quote from illakunsaa »I don't want to sound rude but I looked through your lists and I think they are pretty boring. Your lists are basically just edhrec copypastas. Even your sphinx storm list is just a normal high tide list but instead of draw spells you have sphinxes. I just don't see much point in commenting on lists that are already well known on how they work and what are the best cards.
Well, you do sound rude, so maybe work on that.
I have never used EDHREC in my life, not that there's anything wrong with doing so. All of my lists have been built by hand over time. It's fine if they're not your cup of tea, but there's no need to go around calling people boring or accusing them of copying decklists. How I build decks isn't for everyone, but I like to think that I don't just follow the herd even if I do have access to more expensive cards thanks to my long history with the game.
Apr 13, 2019JqlGirl posted a message on Rakdos, the Showstopper's Earthshaking Extravaganza - Demons & Earthquakes GalorePosted in: Multiplayer Commander DecklistsQuote from darrenhabib »The deck looks like a devilishly good time.
With quite a bit of life loss it would be nice to have a more life gain. Disciple of Bolas would be great and you can even combine it with Rakdos, the Showstopper if you wanted to recast him. With Oversold Cemetery and Blood Speaker it's nice to have a way of killing your own creatures for value.
Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath is on theme, and the emblem is the real deal for this deck.
I don't find myself getting too short on life with this deck, so the life gain from Whip and value Exsanguinates is usually more than enough. Disciple of Bolas wouldn't work for the deck as it's not a demon, devil, or imp and doesn't interact with any of those types. I also don't really need sacrifice outlets as I don't want this deck to be a graveyard deck since I have two other graveyard decks already. I'm happy to get a bit of graveyard value but I'm happy to let my creatures die naturally.
Ob of the Black Oath isn't something I want either as only the -2 is something I'd be interested in, and I can get better value than a 5/5 flyer for 3BB.
Apr 13, 2019JqlGirl posted a message on Ashling the Pilgrim - Equipment and Blowing up the WorldPosted in: Multiplayer Commander DecklistsQuote from JamesTheIV »I also started with 99 mountain Ashling and built from there. Never put it down. Still my favorite EDH deck. I'm currently at close to 60 lands. Ive ran more spells but took a lot back out. I like to dump as much mana into Ashling as possible and only use mana otherwise for essential spells that increase how threatening Ashling is. I put pressure on players early with commander/combat damage from a large Ashling but always have mana open to threaten blowing up the board and doing a lot of damage to players if me or any of my essential permanents are targeted. I play very political. My build is currently more of a rattlesnake / voltron build than a controlling one. I try to finish the game with a big burn spell via comet storm or chandra's ignition.
I like the inclusion of Walking Ballista. Going to pick one up for my deck now. I would highly recommend extraplanar lens & heartstone for your build.
Heartstone I might give a try, but I don't like the land disadvantage of Extraplanar Lens. I'm not really in the market for a 4th mana boosting effect anyway. Glad to meet another Ashling afficionado, though

I can say this with confidence since... I'm the one holding everything back. So round 2 of April will be up and March's final judgments will be in and a winner will be declared. Sorry all, stuff's been hectic.
Any update on this?
