Quote from rogerandover »d0su! I almost lost you and this thread. Didn't knew Salvation were saved, so I moved to Nexus instead. And actually made my own thread for the deck.
About Torbran, he's stinky good! I won't be playing him in Squee though, but i have a Varchild deck that can go wide, and it's in such a deck I think Torbran will shine. What I'm really excited for in Squee is Thrill of Possibility. Not sure if I should cut Wild Guess for it, or if I want all the looting...
Quote from ldm393 »Hey all, recently built momir vig and have been liking it and this thread has given me some decent ideas to improve it.
With the most recent set out (Ravnica Allegiance) what are your thoughts about adding Prime Speaker Vanifar to the list as a way to speed along assembly?

Dimensional Breach (Man I wish I had a home for this card)
Teferi's Protection in response is a two-card same-color combo marvel. (with due acceptancy of its 10 cc)
Ghostway for a lesser but nonetheless great effect for the deck that plays this i suppose.
Taigam, Ojutai Master or any other good blink commanders work. the monk's the stuff though, him + any tutor grabs the two cards, which is awesome.

Quote from cryogen »Quote from d0su »Again with respect to the mobile UI, it would be nice to make card tags easier. Perhaps a button that pops up a prompt where you type the card name and press okay? That would be two button presses instead of the ~18 needed to do even the simple “c” and “/c” tags on an on-screen keyboard.
How about [[card]]? Is that easy enough?

Quote from rogerandover »Had my first game resolving Finale of Promise the other day. Was actually a bit reluctent about it after your comment, 'cus yeah, it reminds a bit of Mizzix's Mastery which I also have thought about cutting (I don't think I'm ever going to overload that thing - I don't I already have enough flashbacks?). But I was quite happy with Finale of Promise. We were down to two players. I had Stuffy on the bf, played Finale of Promise for x=10 targeting Inferno and Star of Extinction which dealt 78 damage to the opponent - actually 79 since I also tapped Stuffy. I properly would have won the game anyways, but it was a stylish win and I could see it doing some stupid things. Think I'll be added good ol' Lightning Bolt so I have a bit more instant-targets for it.
I have a similar story about Bonus Round. That card is bonkers. In a game where a Cromat voltron-deck just played Sphinx's Revelation for 11 and puts in Omniscience, which I luckily warped, I proceed to my turn with 10 lands, Ruby Medallion and Alhammarrets Archive in play. The Cromat dude got all kinds of things in play, creatures, pws, enchantments and I don't get to live another turn. So I play Bonus Round, then Past in Flames, play Last Chance from my grave, and then the funny part, Wheel of Fortune digging 28 cards deep. My hand of 14 includes Control of the Court which I play for my last mana, drawing 16, discarding 6. Next turn my yard is filled with all kinds of goodies and Repercussion in my hand. And then I won. Before that play I was actually thinking about cutting the Archive - but I think I'll be playing with it some more. Opens up for some crazy plays! And yeah, Last Chance also keeps impressing me.
Havn't really got a good story about Seismic Assault and it is on the bench for cutting, but it's there to throw away exess lands I draw from looting and with a play like the one I just desribed, Seismic Assault alone could properly have killed off the table. I think it's a more controlish piece then the big-play style I actually win by, so I'm quite torn about it.
Cleaned a bit up in the lands department, removing the cyclers and added Maze of Ith. Playing right now with Lightning Bolt and Mana Flare instead of Akroma, Angel of Fury and Glacial Crevasses. Endless Atlas looks promising - I might give it a shot.
Quote from 75chan »Quote from d0su »What I can safely say is that if you are willing to go to 5 strictly to find Sol Ring or Mana Crypt, the "First-Free London" mulligan rule is more likely to find them (44.6%) than the old First-Free mulligan (40.8%), Partial Paris (33.2%), or even First-Free Partial Paris (44.3%). And now, your resulting 5-card hand also has a good chance of being decent in its own right since you basically get a 0-mana Faithless Looting tacked on.
Aren't you basing these numbers of a wrong assumption? Maybe other people are different but I've never mulliganed for Sol Ring. I mulligan for a solid hand that does things vs the table. "More likely to find card X when aggressively mulling for it" doesn't seem that descriptive of the quality of a mulliganing system.

Quote from Rumpy5897 »This thread reads a lot like what people were saying about London mull in Modern before the event happened. Combo will reign supreme, people will dig out specific cards, your ad here. And then it worked fine, as per the general player consensus and now an official WOTC decree. Ya'll may have ran numbers on trying to dig up a Sol Ring, but those numbers don't account for the fact that Partial Paris is just inherently better than London at sculpting your hand. And guess what? EDH was still pretty playable with Partial Paris around. Tone down the needless alarmism a bit and take it out for a spin. It's seriously going to be fine.
