Quote from tronix »you spent money on something with little to no practical value regardless if these new walkers existed. alters arent universally sought after compared to their regular art counterparts, and are actively frowned upon in some collector circles. its a very niche market, and printed full art walkers wont make that demand for something that basically no one else has go away.
its cosmetic and for your own enjoyment. unless you somehow magically got alters that match these new cards, the art is still unique and thus their value shouldnt be diminished.

What a bizarre complaint lol. So because you did full art alters, you're mad that these somehow devalue your full art alters?

Quote from ox4 »Does everyone play 4 fireblasts?
I run a pretty standard build,
3 searing blood
3 price of progress
Ive been finding that i get the fireblast too early or too often a lot of the time lately. Im considering going down to 3 and going up to 20 mountains.
Obviously im worried about not seeing the fireblast when i need it if i take one out.
Even if i were to stay at 19 lands, im considering dropping a fireblast to add a fourth pop. I dont really want to see either before the 3rd or 4th turn, but its less resource intensive to play multiple pop then it is to play multiple fireblasts. Especially with only 19 mountains.
Quote from ox4 »On another note.....has anyone tested thorn of amethyst in the side against storm decks?
I havent tried it in my burn deck yet, ive been running it in goblins, but it devastates storm and it messes with so many other decks. Just that ponder and brainstorm cost 2 instead of 1 is huge, and every 0 cast artifact is 1 instead.
It may seem counter initiative to play a card that taxes so many of our spells, but doesnt eidolon punish us for most of the spells in our deck as well?
We have some good fast creatures.....
Quote from lord_darkview »I tend to prefer hate cards that are useful against multiple archetypes and aren't irrelevant if drawn after turn 1. Bridge meets these requirements, even if it's a bit sluggish. I run a few.
For the same reason, I also am not crazy about Leyline. Faerie is better than Surgical against Reanimator, but Surgical is a much more powerful and flexible card, and Reanimator is just so bad of a matchup I don't want to devote many resources to it specifically (any match with it is likely to be a loss, sideboards notwithstanding). Tormod's Crypt is narrow and rarely better than Faeries, while Relic is too slow. Given these, I prefer Surgical and would be willing to play up to 4, but it is also reasonable to simply not play SB cards against the graveyard and accept the liability.
Mindbreak Trap is rarely good enough, especially with how much discard Storm runs these days.
