Something along these lines. It's relatively cheap and features some fun cards and some new cards. There's no direct card advantage, but there's some recursion, and you get cumulative value out of Talrand, Pyromancer and Battledriver in conjunction with your other spells. Any token producer or Battledriver are prime clone effect targets.
Jun 15, 2013Standardized Casual Rules:Posted in: Casual & Multiplayer Formats
1) The deck must be fun to play. You should be enjoying yourself.
2) The deck must be fun to play against. Avoid bull**** or uninteractive strategies that make people feel like they're watching you play.
3) See rule 1.
Jun 14, 2013Hey all. I'm a Bronze I support looking for duo queue partners. I'm also looking to learn Top lane and jungle after the newest changes. I'm open to friend requests and game invites.Posted in: Video Games
I usually play Thresh, Taric, Leona, Nautilus, Soraka or Lulu and I'm looking to learn some more champs like Zyra and Elise.
Summoner name: Raibundarius.
See you guys on the Fields of Justice.

If you're competitive but concerned with money, try Pauper. You can build all the best decks for $10-$20. Turn 5 is the "big deal" turn, so it might appeal to your casual friends. If you make it popular enough at your LGS they might hold regular tourneys.

1) I've seen it written a few times in these threads that Casual decks need to be resilient and to have utility. Tell your friends to play 1-mana kill spells if your creature-based combo is getting them down. Or like main-boarding artifact hate a la Acidic Slime.
2) I'd recommend finding a thread about Casual staples and why they're good and showing it your newer friends. Someone makes one every couple months so they're always kicking around. It could open your friends' eyes to pitfalls in their deckmaking, making their decks better and your kitchen table fun again.
3) If your older cards make them mad, just play Modern-legal/new cardframe cards in your Casual group until they have a substantial collection of older or more powerful cards to match yours.

DeckMagic OnlineOCTGN2ApprenticeBuy These Cards The Tech: 9
1x Murderous Redcap (*)
1x Sun Titan (in case things go horribly wrong)
1x Flayer of the Hatebound (*)
1x Woodfall Primus (*)
1x River Kelpie (*)
1x Sunblast Angel (instant sweeper mid-combat when used with shaman and 'ganger)
1x Mikaeus, the Unhallowed (*)
1x Geralf's Mindcrusher (*)
1x Puppeteer Clique (*)
4x Shifty Doppelganger
4x Fauna Shaman
4x Looter il-Kor
2x Body Double
2x Eternal Witness
2x Spellskite (because shaman and 'ganger are removal whores)
4x Kitchen Finks (*)
2x Drowned Rusalka (*)
22x U/G lands
1x High Market (*)
* = combo implications
A "for fun" synergy/combo deck. The idea is to use Fauna Shaman to get the Shifty Doppelganger online, then use it to grab anything I want and cheat it into play with Doppelganger at instant speed. Getting Mikaeus out has some silly implications with Flayer and River Kelpie, which are a little win-more, but this deck is about big, flashy plays and style points. Finks and Thragtusk are more practical and help me live to see my combo go off. Almost everything in the deck nets me some sort of advantage when it comes in and/or dies, so Doppelganger can be pretty snowballish in the amount of card advantage it nets me over the course of the game.
I can cast ~80% of the deck outright using a :symu::symg: manabase, so i don't think off-color things that I'll be using with Body Double and Doppelganger will be too much of a problem.
I think a strong sac outlet would really put this deck over the top, as it would give me opportunities to push the synergies over the top, a la Flayer + Mikaeus + Kelpie/Redcap/Finks/Clique/Primus + Sac Outlet = infinite damage/life, arbitrarily large amounts of combat damage, blow up their board, etc. I might need to find room for Drowned Rusalka or Starved Rusalka, probably a High Market as well.
Ideally the sac outlet would be free to activate, but my only options that I've come across were black creatures and Phyrexian Altar, which i don't really want to run as central combo pieces.
Any help I can get here is greatly appreciated, thanks.

Apr 11, 2013Combat_Strix posted a message on 3/19 Random Card of the Day: Careful ConsiderationI'd want some evasive creatures with recursion to wear the Bonehoard after the Germ token dies following a Wrath effect. Some ideas:Posted in: Casual & Multiplayer Formats
Undercity Informer lets you set up a mill turret to fill the 'yards with critters. Not a terrible idea to hit yourself with it if you play lots of evasive recurring dudes.
Hope this helps.
Apr 11, 2013Counterflux is generally better. It costs 3 and can't be countered, but you have the option of paying more for it. Unless you play a lot of multiplayer where people duke it out with counter wars and combat tricks or the Cascade mechanic, Double negative is usually just a more complex Cancel.Posted in: Casual & Multiplayer Formats
Go with Counterflux.
Mar 15, 2013Combat_Strix posted a message on Need deck ideas for blue/green-Master Biomancer =)You could splash black for heartless summoning. It has insane synergy with biomancer; all your creatures cost less and 1 biomancer negates heartless's drawback.Posted in: Casual & Multiplayer Formats

Humor aside, your best friend shouldn't get shafted, if he is, in fact, your best friend. If your best friend matters, and your girlfriend minds, your girlfriend doesn't matter. If she wants your babies, she should be willing to put up with your best friend. Friends are the most mild and most tolerable form of baggage, something she seems to have a lot of. Don't let vagina cloud your judgment and force you to cash in your best friend (for aforementioned vagina).
Another way of thinking of it is who gets to pick up the pieces after you make a decision; you could drink with your Bestie and he'd console you on the loss of your girlfriend, whereas your girlfriend would give exactly zero ****s if this incident removed your Bestie from your life, supposing she hates him as much as you say she does.

In no particular order:
Mar 7, 2013Every Thursday for a month, I would go to a family dentist (insurance wouldn't cover surgery) and get one pulled after 9 shots of novocaine, one of which would invariably miss and stab my tongue each time. The pain was pretty intense for me and I normally have a high pain threshold, but I had to use the vicodin for 3 days after each extraction. The pain would make me see red otherwise.Posted in: Real-Life Advice
I also got to keep mine, they're in an envelope in my dresser. One got cut in half with a surgical drill and my mouth tasted like burnt popcorn. I couldn't eat popcorn for a long while, dental surgery notwithstanding.
Anyways, enough about me.
When I got mine done, I'd get copious amounts of novocaine around 9 in the morning each time and it'd be noticeable by around 4, and absolutely unbearable by 6.
Make sure you keep up with the salt rinses, changing the gauze, and antibiotics/painkillers if they gave you any.
