    Hopefully the populate decks have at least 2 of the token doubling enchantments in them since they're all way over priced

    If anything it will most likely provide Parallel lives. People do not want a another G/W deck so i doubt they will do that (Even if populate is a G/W keyword.)



    As for brawl, only thing that will get me to buy the decks is if it contains enough card i feel hold value, and hold a brand new PW. I got the global series for the Pws. I bought three of teh four c18 decks (two were for the PWs and a few interesting cards inside)

    wait, are they still trying to make brawl a thing?


    If Oathbreaker becomes popular enough, they might start making Oathbreaker decks.

    Brawl was announced last year, they could've prepared products at the time to advertise it better, instead they waited for the enthusiasm to decline and suddenly boom, four decks.

    Though, if the seven cards proved to be interesting for Eternal formats, perhaps people might buy and try them out, especially if there are new legends to use in EDH.

    Oath breaker is not bad, but i would have preferred decks to be 62 cards. (60 plus your PW and iconic spell) (Just because 60 is easier to divide by 3)

    Either way i may eventually build my own oath breaker deck. The issue i have with brawl however is the fact that it rotates. Modern is fine as it is only 8th edition onwards. But the first set does not change, Brawl is limited to standard sets only. I have yet to see a single brawl deck show up. Oathbreaker however has gained traction at my store (Not much yet as most still play EDH, but I have seen people come in with a few oathbreaker decks. (And if I had the money I would build a few myself.)

    I'm really hoping the Morph deck is Sultai colored and not Temur. The more I think about it, the more I feel like Black is a better fit for a morph themed deck as opposed to red. Black interacts better with hidden information / tricks / death shenanigans, where as red seems to be pure aggro, something a Morph deck does not really need.

    Hmm, having morphs that don't morph into creatures would also be interesting. Board wipe and then morph those 2/2s into the things they are suppose to be (lands, artifacts, enchantments.)

    Would be cool.

    it would make beginners more competitive

    While it would be nice, they want to sell many products, so they would never cater to teh new players in this way. The pre-cons are to introduce you, but they want player to buy booster packs and singles. so stores will buy more to supply the demand.

    make buying the full decks a better proposition for the more seasoned players who are only looking to these for key cards to take and make new decks out of.

    They should do this as some seasoned players will not buy a deck simply due to not having anything they want. They still wont as Commander makes sales regardless. WotC will focus on the sales they make on the main products, such as core sets. While they may not make the sale themselves, they sell to store that need the supply. If they released a set that held NO value for other sets (I mean that is near impossible, but say they do) no one will be asking for the product to cater to their decks. Players will buy sets for standard, but since the release of Modern, standard has become a dying format.
    (To the point of my LGS which use to have upwards of 20 players every Friday night just for standard (To the point where they moved to have a larger area for players) will get may one or two people on Friday night, and not for FNM.

    i would love madness to be a Grixis deck. Give us the great Cthulhu as a general. Lords of madness. mindflayers, abberations. Make madness actually feel like madness.

    Star of Extinction doesn't damage opponents so it isn't the best example. If you use Earthquake only the damage being dealt to the opponents is prevented. The damage is still dealt to the creatures as normal.

    Thanks, Misread star of extinction as player not creatures. But thankfully you answered my question with earthquake.

    Quick question about Hostility's ability. If I play a spell like Star of Extinction do I only prevent damage done to opponent or do i prevent all damage?

    Quick question. If I am in a multiplayer game and give my opponent and emblem with a planeswalker, would opponets still have that emblem even if I am eliminated?

    So many people focus on attacks proliferate. It's.4/4 with lifeline, vigilance, death touch and flying for 4.

    Granted without red you download some of the best Angela.

    Morophon is an option, you could also pick up any of the red/white angels. (Aurelia is a lot of fun (with a free sac out and adarkar valkyrie, you go infinita attack phases)

  • posted a message on I hope Emminence comes back for C19. Roast me :D
    Here is an idea. Eminance on a. naya commander.

    Eminence (blah blah blah) whenever a non token creature with power 4 or greated enter battlefield under your control it gains haste until end of turn.

    Creatures you control have first strike, trample and vigilance.

    Basic and not tribal focused.

    I believe the current bogeyman of the format is Thrasios/Tymna Flash Hulk. I don't know much more than that since I think cEDH is asinine, but that's what I've read. It's basically Cephalid Breakfast with Laboratory Maniac.


    Seriously, is every degenerate deck going to just be some Hermit Druid variant? This one does avoid dying to grave hate the way classic Hermit Druid did. And it allows for basic lands.

    And my usual "But it's the control players who are the problem..." (in a whiny, singsong voice)

    This is the deck I am going to build. I like the way it plays and already own half the cards needed. I will have to change some things but overall it will still be the same. (I don't own twister or LED but I will proxy LED for now)


    Timetwister is overrated. Card is fantastic and oozes with power but its not like "oh i dont have twister, now I cant play thrasios/tymna". Just replace it with another OP af card for T/T. Theres going to be atleast 50 cards that get cut from the list that turn heads anyway; just put one of those in. As for LED; this ones a big deal. It enables infinite mana combos via bomberman and has great synergy with your wheels or opponent's wheels and can even enable DD lines if you go that route now that paradox engine is gone. You definitely dont need timetwister loops to finish the game once drawing your deck; theres so many "90% as good" finishers that effectively close the game the same way.


    Who/What is bomberman?

    And if TT is not so important why even mention the TT loop?

    Not sure what promos have to do with commander.

    Also where is the "i don't like playing promos?" vote option.
