    I play bwg tokens, and Sudden Disappearance has been working pretty well for me.

    For me it's going to be all about GWB Planeswalker Junk and possibly RUG. Huntmaster is just too good. I've also been doing a lot of testing with Mono Green Stompy thanks to Undying, Mono Black Zombies and of course Burning Vengeance. had the chance to do a good bit of testing on the MTGO Be.... .... ....Cockatrice Slant

    Stompy and Zombies sounds incredibly janky, but, you really can't argue with their mana bases!

    ...Also, know what I can do if I really feel like it? I can Birthing Pod this into Obliterator on your turn Grin

    Well, no... no matter how much you feel like doing it you cant Smile

    In any case I've got my eye on this guy for ISD Block Zombies. The problem is I'm sure sure a mono black zombie deck will fly in block with that damn cage running around now...

    Quote from Starcrash
    You strike me as one of those players who says "Sure Baneslayer is strong, but it dies so easily to Doom Blade." This is, you mock the weaknesses of cards (and probably other things) to feed your ego.

    Standard has plenty of mana-fixing options at the moment, especially if you're running green (there are 2 sets of dual lands with the friendly colors - red and white, and 1 set of dual lands for black and blue). Sphere of the Suns and Manalith are both still in Standard. What makes you think 3 mana symbols out of 5 makes it so difficult to play?

    Green just gained a new vigilant creature, which makes a total of 8 monogreen creatures now that have vigilance or can gain it through their own abilities (none of which are in Standard). And I'd happily play a 5/4 vigilant trampler for 5, which means I'd definitely play one that's hard to kill and nearly impossible to kill with infect. So please save the pessimism, and recognize the features this card has which are worthwhile.

    Actually he makes perfectly valid points, and without even a hint of "BUT IT DIES TO REMOVAL!!!!"ism. This card is good, sure, but it's restrictive cost will limit it to a very specific subset of decks. If this guy cost 3GG, 4G or even 5G he'd be borderline too good, but the GGG just makes him "Good" instead of "ZOMG BROKEN". He wasn't crapping on the card at all.

    It's a step in the right direction for UW Control in Block Constructed anyway....

  • posted a message on Masters Edition 5
    Quote from Neros64
    They already said theres no more Masters Editions and they have no plan on bringing the power 9 to MTGO.

    You're half right. There will be no MED5 but that do want the P9 online. They just want to be "extremely delicate in their implementation."

  • posted a message on Am I missing something on the value of constructed queues?
    For one, you're only looking at 2 man queues. The 8 man queues hold more value. 2 man queues are good for testing and little else. Also, you're looking at Pauper queues, which award M12. Standard and ISD Block award ISD packs, which are slightly more valuable.

    DE's are the way to go. 6 tix to enter, 3-1 = 20 tix, 4-0 = 40, unless you're playing Pauper, wherein the payouts are just slightly less.

  • posted a message on How do i add my own land in drafts
    Quote from Yamikiri
    Either some tinkering in the program files, or some maybe there's a setting.

    Quote from chuy100
    It's fairly simple:
    1. Save your deck before submitting it
    2. Switch to the generic deck editor
    3. Load your saved deck
    4. Replace the basic lands with any other basic lands in your collection
    5. Save the new deck
    6. Switch to the draft/sealed deck editor
    7. Load your saved deck
    8. Submit your deck with the custom basic lands

    Complete and total "shot in the dark" uninformed guesswork vs actual information... I LOVE IT!

    I've actually always been a little curious, but it sounds like too much work. Plus my inner OCD likes all the cards from the same set anyway!
