I find these threads so insufferable. People complain about the meta even when its in a PERFECT spot like it is right now. 15-20 decks are capable of winning tournaments.
Either get better at your deck, change your deck, or change your build.
If anything helps the format, a stoneforge unban could maybe help 'fair' decks. But nothing needs to be banned in the least.

Dec 11, 2018Posted in: Magic GeneralQuote from NephilimRayne »Just watched my cousin open his box - suffice to say he is severely unhappy.
Glen, Elenda Archmage
Talrand, Sky Summoner
Visions of Beyond
Spoils of the Vault
Pattern of REbirth
Golgari Grave Troll
Through the Breach
Squee, Goblin Nabob
2 foil rares: Squee and Maelstrom
Box topper: Kitchen Finks
I have never seen a person so dejected and angry. I can't say I blame him one point. That box should never exist, period.
No offense but if he isn't making enough to piss away 300 US on a box he shouldnt be buying sealed product to just open. Its always going to AVERAGE losing money, thats just obvious (otherwise ppl would open until its not profitable anymore)
Im expecting to lose 100 when i open my box but itll be fun because i have the money and i like to gamble.
And the post right above mine is the same deal.
IF YOU CAN't AFFORD TO LOSE $500 INSTANTLY DON'T BOTHER.
My net worth changes $1000+ on any given day but thats investing. You don't hear me WHINING about it daily.
Aug 16, 2018Posted in: Aggro & TempoQuote from roxembak »#kryxt21, I am testing this list:
A possible changes is one Bedlam Reveler for one Tasigur, the Golden Fang
I also have doubts with the cantrip... Serum, Opt, Scour or Looting? I do not know what to put and in what amount.
How has this list worked for you? I am brewing up a Grixis list... been choosing between a more 'tapout' Grixis value list and a Grixis control (or even Deaths shadow) and came about something very similar to yours but with some Claim // Fame as well for value. How have you found the list? Good bad matchups?

We're getting Elvish Spirit Guide soon, some (beautiful) art copyrighted WotC 2018 for it is already out there. If it isn't also in this set, it's in the upcoming Elves duel deck or (fingers crossed) Dominaria.
Yeah they aren't printing free mana in standard.. ever again.
Feb 16, 2018Offhisgame posted a message on What does Wizards of the Coast need to do to improve magic the gathering?They need more PLAYABLE/powerful CREATIVE cards. Not just pushed by being 1 mana less, unique effects.Posted in: Magic General
It hurts the game that they removed land destruction, good counterspells, great enchantments and such from the game. New card types would help.
Feb 12, 2018Offhisgame posted a message on [POLL] What cards do you want banned or unbanned in the February 12, 2018 announcement?I was sure WOTC was smart enough not to unban Jace for cost reasons.Posted in: Modern Archives
Guess Hasbro just doesn't care and cares about short term profits over long term MTG health. Shocking...
Feb 12, 2018Posted in: Modern ArchivesQuote from pizzap »I think they chose Jace over SFM as they were looking for 4 mana main fase cards, requiring you to tap 4 lands unlike TKS. Also, M25 is a huge incentive to unban him. After the last Masters set they need something to create a hype. Don't forget they are a company, and companies need to make money.
Myself I don't like the unban at all. There already was a recent rise in blue control, so I don't feel it needed such help. I think it would actually reduce diversity. Also, people were already complaining about Lantern, and now they can enjoy being fatesealed. Anyway, we will see...
Don't get it twisted. Jace got unbanned for 1 reason. Hasbro told wizards 'Jump'. Wotc replied 'How High?' and Hasbro said Jace TMS please. And thus a card unbanning was born.
Feb 12, 2018Dreadbore over terminate goes without saying at this point. It was already close as dreadbore helps against tron, BGx, and Chandra. Now its a great 1 maybe even 2 of maindeck. Also 4 thoughtseize before ANY iok. Burn may tick up a bit, so keep that in mind though.Posted in: Modern Archives - Proven
Feb 12, 2018Posted in: Modern ArchivesQuote from Ayiluss »Quote from thewrush »Does this kill Grixis Death Shadow now? I can't see it doing well vs any Jace/Ux Control deck ever now.
It will make GDS weaker but will it kill it? We have to wait and see. I assume though that Traverse Shadow will be better option of the two from now on because it's faster and this is what you need against control if you play a Death's Shadow deck. You need to kill them fast (actually this was already the case now and it will be so much more important with Jace being part of Modern) because you can't win long game against them. Traverse Shadow does it better than GDS.
Maybe this will be claim/fame's time to shine seeing as it can give a goyf or deaths shadow haste out of nowhere.
Feb 12, 2018Burn should make a pretty nice comeback on this news. Burn gives 0 *****s about Jace. I expect to see more swiftspears and young pyromancers around - going wide against Jace is pretty nice.Posted in: Modern Archives
Jan 15, 2018Offhisgame posted a message on The State of Modern Thread (Rules Update 27/10/17)Shocked they didn't unban at LEAST BBE. BBE is super safe... oh well.Posted in: Modern Archives
Jan 11, 2018Offhisgame posted a message on [POLL] What cards do you want banned or unbanned in the January 15, 2018 announcement?The biggest issue with unbanning Jace is the card will be extremely expensive. Stoneforge and BBE aren't too bad. Jace would be $150 if it was unbanned and make modern more expensive again.Posted in: Modern Archives
I think they DO look at that somewhat.
I say BBE and Stoneforge come off.

Nov 30, 2017Offhisgame posted a message on If You Can't Take Criticism of Jeremy Hambly, You're Part of the ProblemI'm just glad I live in Canada where people are sane and pretty much unanimously hate Trump. Even the right wing conservatives here support gay marriage, abortion, access to birth control, etc. We have ascended past such silly topics so I don't expect many of these 'edgy' types in my lgs luckily!Posted in: Articles
Nov 30, 2017Offhisgame posted a message on If You Can't Take Criticism of Jeremy Hambly, You're Part of the ProblemDo we even have evidence he plays the game? Tournament results? He just uses MTG as a soapbox to complain like Desolatormagic about the 'left wing' influences in the gamePosted in: Articles
Nov 30, 2017Offhisgame posted a message on If You Can't Take Criticism of Jeremy Hambly, You're Part of the ProblemIf guys like Jeremy weren't weirdo creeps because of their lack of ability/success with women we likely wouldn't hear him complaining about them.Posted in: Articles
You don't see many alt right *****lords with girlfriends lets just say. Guys like me that are happily getting laid 10+ times a week don't worry about who's cosplaying or who is a 'sjw'.
