  • posted a message on Aminatou, What to do with you? Cause I don't know.
    A blink variant does not need hat much black staples. I build her as a U/W with a few good black cards in there mainly for removal, Ravenous Chupacabra and Noxious Gearhulk mostly.

    Interesting package in the deck is a token package with Day of the Dragons and Divine Visitation. The token makers are Knight-Captain of Eos, Captain of the Watch, Grave Titan and one or two others I can't remember right now. The beauty of Day of the Dragons is that, using Aminatou, you can blink it to in turn blink your entire team. So you can attack and block with 5/5 flyers and still get all the ETB value every turn. Also provides some form of board wipe insurance. Add in Divine Visitation and Day of the Dragons will make an ever growing army of Angels instead.

    Another way is to have a few cards that exile cards from your opponents library - Villainous Wealth and Nightmare Incursion do so in spades. You can just grind your opponents out until their deck is gone.

    Additionally, maybe Bolas plans to instate himself as Guildpact and leverage the power of the Guildpact against Ugin / Azor.

    Isn’t project Lightning Bug the thing Bolas is after? Ravnica being the center of the multiverse makes for a good place to track and trap walkers.

    After all this is Done though, I wouldn’t be suprised if this is only about finding and trapping Ugin for Bolas. It would, from Bolas’s perspective accomplish several things:

    - trap the only creature he knows of that can potentially rival Bolas himself in power.
    - do to Ugin what Ugin planned to do to Bolas: the ultimate way for Bolas to show his brother that he is better than him. Poetic justice at it’s best.

    The destruction of Amonkhet and Ravnican society is just collateral damage.

  • posted a message on The price of shocklands and when to buy them
    Just checked the price of a Watery Grave from GRN, preorder price trend starts at €8,60 ($10). So it preordering them does not seem to be worth it, going on the expectations in this thread so far.

    Quote from 3drinks »
    Nice try, r/MtgFinance.

    Get out.
    Wtf dude? My concrete problem is not having enough time to keep building new decks every week so it's important for me to have decks standing at the ready. I also don't have the money to just willy nilly buy whatever I want when I want so I'm solving this in large part by playing with proxies of cards that I already own. But I'd rather not have to, so if a little preplanning would enable me to acquire some more at a decent price MAYBE I don't need to proxy them as much.

    Maybe you're so affluent that you can buy whatever you want whenever you want and you don't need to mind (future) card prices in order to build up and/or maintain a decent collection. But for many of us, the fact that Magic turned into some sort of stock market except you can play a game with your shares is an unfortunate but real fact of life we cannot ignore.

    So please allow me to apologize on behalf of all the impoverished magic players that you had to read about issues that do not exist for you even though you chose to open a thread that doesn't really hide what it's about anyway.

  • posted a message on The price of shocklands and when to buy them
    So I'm always chronically short on decent lands due to having way too many decks and good lands costing too much money. With the shocklands up for a rerun in standard with the release of GRN, I was wondering what the best moment would be to buy some additional ones? On one hand, them being in standard greatly increases supply, which would lead to lower prices. However, demand will also skyrocket as people who play standard will want them too. The best answer is probably to wait until GRN and the 2nd Ravniva 3 set rotate out of standard, but that's too long for my tastes.

    Anyway, at the moment of writing they cost about €8-€12 a piece. Do people see them go to like €5 and if so, when?

    What's a commander only player to do?

  • posted a message on Looking for a deckbuilding app with custom labels - does it even exist?
    When building decks, I use Decked Builder for brainstorming in off-time but every deck I want to build seriously I need to build in Excel in order to be able to check my ratio’s. Do any of you know a deckbuilding app that will allow you to add a custom tag/category to a card so it can give you the amount and average cmc per category? Decked Builder can do this on card type but when building decks I want to group cards to ramp, card draw, removal, resilience, consistency and then some free form categories to divvy up cards based on their function in the deck like say “aura synergy” if you build an aura deck etc. Is there an app that does this?

  • posted a message on Token chourus of the conclave deck
    Chorus of the Conclave is an 8 mana low impact commander whom’s primary ability is to boost your creatures as you cast them. Tokens by definiton, are never cast. Picking one of the worst selesnya commanders and then running an anti-synergystic strategy with it is not going to destroy anyone.

    Trostani is who you seek.

  • posted a message on Brainstorming Gyrus, Waker of Corpses
    Depends on your creature vs non-creature ratio I guess. Since it puts creature cards in play instead of the graveyard (in multiplayer no one ever pays the life) the synergy with Gyrus specifically is not there. The only card I ever play (and have played) that requires me to discard at random is Gamble so I wouldn't play it but YMMV.

    I like some of them, but not at that price. If they are cheap singles, then I'll pick a few of them up.

    I don't know why but I can't edit my post. So here is the non-type link: Assault Suit.

    Assaulst Suit, though that's really stretching the definition of similar. That and what GG already mentioned is all there is afaik.
