  • posted a message on Three new cards dropped from LGS TO.
    Not sure exactly how to post these, but just saw them drop and figured the Rumor mill would wanna know since I didn't see any threads yet. Mods, please merge and stuff.

    (Sorry again, I know this isn't the right format.)

    Yeah, I'm kinda back. Working on this again. Gonna start "Finishing it up" since I'm finally in a better financial place and able to afford nice things like magic cards.

    Jank Cube Update 1.6
    Card Update:

    Notes about Card update:
    Really just trying to thin through the clunkier cards that haven't been seeing play and trying to help support some archetypes.

    Possible Changes:
    Might be looking towards swapping out Worldfire for Glorious End. Mana cost is far lower, and I think it might help push red a little bit towards where it needs to be.

    Misc. Changes:
    Not really a change, just excited that Dragon Shields are finally making matte brown sleeves.

    To be honest Kank, I'm about 75% sure I've heard you're OSHA stuff at my work. We have to take a yearly HazCom test and other things like that. Also I try to catch your youtube series (The shoddycast one) when I remember to actually watch my youtube subscriptions. dot dot dot

    So I've just been lurking as usual, not finding very much useful to say and since LG left I haven't even checked the forums as nearly as much. I think this discussion is something that's been a long time coming.

    In my honest option the time of social groups within forums are kind-of dead. Years prior when all this stuff started, Facebook, Twitter and other social outlets hadn't really existed (or at least existed in its current form), Clans and social communities made sense as a way to find people to hang out and chat with while partaking on whatever the topic of the main forum was. However these threads, social clubs or communities built into forums just don't seem to attract people anymore with all the more efficient options like Facebook or discord or what-have-you.

    With the moving us to a sub-forum, it feels like an obvious move that they're eventually going to cut clans all together. Short of somehow four new active clans getting made, and we start running clan contests again I think it's just a matter of time. No sense in keeping an entire section for about 20-30 users who don't even post in it every week, let alone day.

    Honestly, I'm not sure what to think. I've had loads of fun with you guys, CC after CC, through the ups and downs and just the general conversations held here. I don't regret the time I've spent in this thread.

    So I suppose we should have this conversation. What do you guys want to do? In the end, whatever you guys want to do I'm fine with but at the very least I'd like to update my member bio one last time if for nothing else but record keeping sake. Lastly, I guess in case I somehow never make it back in here or this is the end or if we transfer to a place I wont go or I guess I somehow get lost along the way, anyone on steam can feel free to add me id/silentadept.

    As of 19 May 2017, currently 24 years old. Still playing magic, still crafting, still enjoying music. My favourite Crafter memory is everyone getting together to make the tale of the Avian Flew.

    (P.S. Then again I could be entirely wrong about everything and maybe they've just moved us to a sub-forum due to lack of interest instead of a diabolic plan to remove the clan forums all together)

    Head out on the highway! Jam

    @Grey, I dunno man. It looks pretty solid but the cost is just outside my budget to warrant even splitting a box. I'm hoping it'll just drop single prices so I might be able to pick up 1-2 cards that were otherwise out of reach.

    As far as crafting goes, does anyone have any ideas of a good finishing coat to help imitate a wood varnish. I have my color pattern designed (Kinda, I'll post more pictures once I'm off of my test strips and moved onto the actual finished piece), but so far I'm unsure what to do. I was gonna coat it in Krylon Matte Finish but I'm worried it wont have the right look. I've used a Clear Gloss coat made by Krylon, but I think it might look too glossy. Could use some advice since my searches have come up blank and my roommates aren't too craft-y.

    Let's talk about games.
    Video Game Discussion! What are y'all currently playing? What's your favourite games? Would you recommend either?
    Tabletop Discussion! What's the last tabletop you guys played? What's the best tabletop story you have?

    I've been playing a lot of Warframe lately. It's been quite a blast but I wouldn't really recommend it unless y'all dont mind grinding for a bit to get to the point of being able to do endgame content (Which is primarily grinding more things to get more stuff to unlock cosmetic items :V).
    As far as tabletop goes? I've been playing (besides magic) Pathfinder. Currently running a Gnome Cleric who found an android (Another PC) and is claiming it as his property. It's been fun but I really need to refine my character, he's been a bit insane so I'm a bit worried I'll lose sight of how my character should be playing from his standpoint.

  • posted a message on Increasing combat damage without increasing power
    I think Bow of Nylea is something you can look at? Besides actually pumping things and having other minor utility, it gives death touch which makes for really bad blocks on their end.
    Running hatebears, I don't know often it becomes relevant but Sight of the Scalelords has proven to be a hidden gem in my decks. This one sorta increases power though.
    Militia's Pride and Captain's Claws puts in extra attacking creatures. Luminarch Ascension and Hoofprints of the Stag always put in a lot of work too.
    Lastly I think Campaign of Vengeance is right up your alley, although it is a bit expensive.
    Painful Quandary isn't exactly aggro but it does put in insane work.

    I'd run Prodding Imp in my Shirei deck, to be honest.

    And I'm actually in love with my Roof Imp idea now too Gaaaaaaaaaah

    I also love Soot Crow's flavor dot dot dot

    Chimney Baron 4B
    Creature - Imp Lord
    Other Imp creatures you control get +1/-1.
    Whenever another Imp dies, target opponent puts a card from his or her hand on top of his or her library.

  • posted a message on MZD's Commander of the month
    I like the looks of it. Kaseto has been something I've wanted to do for a while (for semi-obvious reasons). I'd only run Blight Mamba and Triumph of the Hordes for the infect win personally. I find it'll catch people out that way. Blight Mamba + Boots + 5 Pump Activations is gonna be like 13 mana just to get the insta-kill against someone. Going any more obvious than just the outright "Gotcha!" will probably have people targeting you (I outright got targeted for dropping a Plague Myr one game as a mana rock). You can probably get away with the Corrupted Conscience, though?

    Past that don't forget sweet snakes such as these: Hooded Hydra, Mystic Snake, Ohran Viper, Skullwinder, Amoeboid Changeling and Changeling Titan.

    I actually run Chimney Imp in one of my EDH decks. dot dot dot

    Roof Imp 4B
    Creature - Imp
    When Roof Imp dies, you may look at the top card of each player's library.
    "Whats it doing up there?"
    "Being creepy mostly."


    Welcome back HK, whats good?

    Soul of Thopteria 0
    Artifact Creature - Thopter
    2: Each creature you control become a flying artifact creature with base power and toughness 0/2 until end of turn.
    2, exile Soul of Thopteria from your graveyard: Each creature you control become a flying artifact creature with base power and toughness 0/2 until end of turn.

    edit, somehow messed that up entirely. Forgot the artifact and the until end of turn clause. Gaaaaaaaaaah

  • posted a message on Nefarox, Voltronlord of Grixis
    If I can make some suggestions?

    Personally, I'd cut some of the creatures. Shriekmaw and Solemn Simulacrum are both general value cards but I think you'd be better off including an instant speed spot removal and maybe even just a basic land. Without a way to abuse them, they're better off just being those in my opinion. I'd say cut Everglades as well. It detracts from your swamp count which is detrimental to multiple cards you have. Last major cut I'd look at is probably Indulgent Tormentor? I dislike lettering my opponents decide what I do in regards to that, but it might be worth testing out?

    As far as replacements or suggested adds? I see these cards being interesting.
    Dread Cacodemon or Reiver Demon for being one-sided wipes in addition to a body.
    Kothophed, Soul Hoarder for Card Advantage (Perhaps over Harvester of Souls even).
    Diabolic Servitude, Animate Dead, or Dance of the Dead for a way to grab Nefarox back from the yard when your boardwipe hits him.
    Opal Palace seems like a decent way to get additional counters on Nerafox since you might be recasting him a couple times from your command zone.
    Trepanation Blade seems good with both Nighthowler and Bonehoard. It'll help fill the yard while pumping. Not sure if it's the best but it might be worth testing?
    Necromantic Selection is a one-sided wipe that allows you to grab Nefarox back after. With haste boots, it could be devastating.

    Last card that I'll throw up could just be a fun card is Grave Betrayal. It goes against the Ideology of limiting your creatures, but with as many wipes and other forced sac you're running it could just give you a big enough army to just win.

    I dunno. Better than an Ornithopter? I'm not sure it's possible.

    I hate that damn hippopotamus song so much. Plays every year as a part of our 10 song christmas music loop.
    I think if I had a time machine, I think the only thing I would do with it is go back in time and prevent that song from being written.

    That being said, I like the option as title, but expect me to ignore the thread for a month otherwise I might become compelled to jump from a bridge.

    Then again, with all the personal ***** that seems to be boiling up to this point (sister & mom fights, friends & my roommates fights, and many more!), I expect I'll be absent anyhow.
