Apr 3, 2016Posted in: Magic GeneralQuote from MisterDizzy »What is Jace's story anyway?
Liliana has her demons and Sorin has his whatevers. I have no clue what Jace's story is. He's like that one guy that always tags along on other people's adventures because he has none of his own.
Here is a good (in my opinion) comparison of Urza and Jace (Tolarian Community College) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dIC-PCMNqLE
While Urza is acting, doing stuff and having big goals, Jace is mostly reacting, being told by others what to do, without any goals that would drive him. This might be part of the reason why Urza stories and especially the character was interesting, while Jace is ... meaningless (from story point of view).
Mar 29, 2016Compared to Urza and what he did, Jace and all these new PWs are pretty bland.Posted in: Magic General
I just don't think an old bearded man would work as the "Face of MTG" for commercials and games etc.
... although, Gandalf is in LoTR and HE is working out fine :).
May 19, 2015Went through different Narset EDH deck threads but mainly got input for my deck list from the following:Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
HansonWK "Narset, On Extra Turns and Combat Steps"
Dies_to_Doom_Blade "Narset, Enlightned Master: How to never pay mana again"
This is mostly ment as online deck list for my personal use, but any notions or thoughts are welcome.
I did not try to make this as cutthroat as possible (would require more artifact ramp etc). I mostly wanted to make a "spells only" -deck and instead of Melek, which usually is just storm, I chose to use Narset. I did not include Omniscience and Enter the Infinite because it is already one wincon in another deck of mine. I did include Proteus Staff though.
Initial deck list added
I'm going to change Treachery to Blatant Thievery when I get one.
World at war should probably be changed to Temporal Manipulation because Rebound does not work with Narset ability.
I'm missing original dual lands and probably never going to buy them for this deck.
I'm also missing all fetches, will try to get those in the future.
-Evolving Wilds+Flooded Strand
-Retribution of the Meek+Tragic Arrogance
-Clifftop Retreat+Chrome Mox
-Counterflux+Pact of Negation
-Elbrus, the Binding Blade+Clone Legion Elbrus is forbidden because flip side is black. Going to try Clone legion because I need something that can help with beating.

Dec 6, 2014Hello.Posted in: Market Street Café
I have updated my collection prices using MOTL pipe-delimited price lists (http://classic.magictraders.com/pricelists/) . It has been a while since I last updated my excel and I just noticed that MOTL price lists are more than a year old.
Have MOTL price lists completely died?
Is there any other source that would update a pipe-delimited price list somewhere?
I know that TCGPlayer has price lists and they can be copied to Excel. However, the lists I found are per-expansion and it would take a lot of work to go through every expansion every time I want to update the lists.
Maybe I need to do this some other way now.
Nov 22, 2014I think Momentary blink does not help Narset to evade anything? It helps against targeted removal, but targeted removal does not work on Narset in the first place as she has hexproof.Posted in: Commander (EDH)
Otherworldly Journey, Ghostway and other "return it back at the end of turn" etc works great though.
Really interested in making a Narset deck. I was going to try to make Melek deck but this seems just much more fun.
Jul 5, 2014One more animar with only permanents and Primal Surge as one-card-combo.Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
Based on Gelf primer here http://www.mtgsalvation.com/forums/the-game/commander-edh/multiplayer-commander-decklists/217251-animar-soul-of-elements-combo-cns-review
Removed instants and sorceries, added some stuff like Erayo and, of course, Primal surge.
-Erayo, Soratami Ascendant+Rattleclaw Mystic - Erayo was banned
-Bloodbraid Elf+Genesis Hydra
-Eldrazi Monument+Kruphix, God of Horizons
-Opal Palace+Hardened Scales
-Garruk's Horde+Sage of Fables
-Raven Familiar+Sea Gate Oracle
-Ondu Giant+Kessig Wolf Run
-Deadwood Treefolk+Den Protector
-Nantuko Vigilante+Ainok Survivalist
-Reliquary Tower+Wooded Foothills
-Acidic Slime+Elvish Visionary
-Forest+Birds of Paradise
-Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger+Bloom Tender
-Archetype of Endurance+Stratus Dancer
-Etherium-Horn Sorcerer+Ancestral Statue
-Steel Hellkite+Mystic Snake
-Nullstone Gargoyle+Temur Sabertooth
With these changes, the deck is closer to Gelf primer. Main differences are:
Glimpse of nature = Primal Surge
Stubborn Denial = Voidmage Husher
Swan Song = Words of Denial
Crop Rotation = Expedition Map
Chord of Calling = Urabrask the Hidden
Sphinx of Uthuun = Craterhoof Behemoth
Raven Familiar = Sea Gate Oracle
Llanowar Reborn = Homeward Path
Sulfur Falls = Tolaria West
In addition, I'm missing two fetches and run Evolving Wilds and Exotic Orchard instead.
-Cloud of Faeries+Gilded Drake
Trying to find Imperial Recruiter for the deck as well.
-Kruphix, God of Horizons+Void Winnower
-Prophet of Kruphix+Seedborn Muse Trying to replace prophet. Requires Teferi as well (and Winding canyons and Alchemist's Refuge)
-Xenagos, God of Revels+Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir
Jul 3, 2014Wishes would be cool but we do not use them (or even sideboard) when playing EDH.Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
I'm ok with that though, as now I do not need to carry all the wishable cards with me as well.
(My big deck has about 1000 cards as extras just to wish to play :). )
Jul 2, 2014Ok, I understood, I have few times been in same situation with Primal Surge as it is in both my Animar (not yet in signature) and Enchantment decks. It is a one card win condition as well and when it would be like a third or fourth win with that card in the last few game evenings, it starts to get old. Even if I do not have any way to tutor it in either deck.Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
Hm, maybe I would use just Insurrection and Rise of the Dark Realms then. Just steal every creature on the board/graveyards, not win instantly :).
All three Primordials would be nice as well... but there are probably few hundred creatures that would be excellent with Marchesa :).
Jul 2, 2014Dthamilaye posted a message on [[Primer]] Norin the Wary - Heads I win, Tails you lose.List doesn't run Rings of Brighthearth either, so I'm not sure what the Ogre would do.Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
Jul 2, 2014Good point about Deadeye Navigator.Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
I still think Mana crypt would be good as well (costs a lot though, but so do dual lands as well).
You tried Jokulhaups, was it good when playing?
I was thinking that I would definitely add Jokulhaups and Obliterate to this deck, but maybe they are too expensive to cast?
If it has Jin, then some land destruction shouldn't be a big deal for the play group :). Even something like Damnation could be nice?
Obliterate should be game win right there if you have any board presence and Marchesa.

That is the hardest part for me in EDH games. PWs are always the first target for ANY creature on the table. They are "politically correct" targets to remove and all in the table are always in favour of it.
This is especially nasty when I try to play my No-creatures,PW's-only -deck.
If I had three PW's on the table, I think I would like Veil as well. 4+4 (or even 4 and next round 4) is still quite a hefty price to pay when I try to put out other PW's and also clear the board etc.
Jul 1, 2014Would it be odd to play Sedris in the 99? Its a 6 cost 5/5 summon with good ability. Or is it counterintuitive with Marchesa as you would lose the unearthed summons when they leave battlefield? Or is it too big creature for the deck curve?Posted in: Multiplayer Commander Decklists
You really need a Sol ring. In addition, what would you think about Mana Crypt? That is the one thing even better than sol ring, especially as Marchesa kinda doesn't mind the damage once in a while?

Sep 14, 2017I already have separate accounts for mmo-champ (Curse, I assume), MTGS (from before merging with curse, so not a curse account, I assume) and Twitch. I do NOT have facebook account of any kind, and I'm not making one either. Good thing this merge is with twitch and not with facebook. At least I have a possibility of continuing. I'm just not sure which accounts will be merged in the end.Posted in: Articles
About passwords, I have over 300 sites where I have some kind of username and password, and each of those has a different password.
