    Nissa and Oran-rief headed up?

    I'm not sure - since there's probably a lot of circulation of both of them around.

    Vines of Vastwood and Hindering light dont seem to be very useful because all your creatures have shroud and so they cant be targeted anyways

    I disagree on Hindering Light - stops Cruel Ultimatum. Vines is kinda meh - I guess you could cast it on their dudes for a random trick?

    How is Mind Control ever going to help with Iona? Who would name anything but Blue when she gets played?

    Seems like people would fear:

    Day of Judgement
    Path to Exile
    Oblivion Ring
    Maaaaybe Doom Blade.

    So, they're probably going to name white or black.

    I'm surprised no one mentioned the surfer in Flame Wave.

    Quote from Meathook
    I know that Flame Wave has a tiny man surfing in the background. There was an arcana about it a while ago. Also what do you see, Altimas? I don't see anything special/unusual.

    Edit: http://www.wizards.com/Magic/Magazine/Article.aspx?x=mtgcom/arcana/115


    These are actually really cool, but I'm also confused about the Timbermaw Larva..

    Uh, run both?

    5 mana and 6 mana - looks good to me.

    5 color is a bit of a stretch for the deck, there's a list for Esper (and variants) in the developing competitive boards: http://forums.mtgsalvation.com/showthread.php?t=194130

    I know with 5 you get Bloodbraid, but it just seems a lot more consistent on 3 colors.

    That's where Glazing Gladehart comes in. It alone can nullify an alpha strike. Unsummon helps here as well. Magosi, the Waterveil is here if I have the ability to kill. When you have just cast a Baloth Woodcrasher with a bunch of Harrows in hand, you can kill them. If you just dropped Rampaging Baloths and created a bunch of tokens the same turn, I can take an extra turn and kill them.

    Try some gold fishing with the deck, it has potential. I know gold fishing is one thing, but it really can get some insane plays going. The real questions is how it would hold up in an actual match up, which as I stated I haven't had a chance to do yet.


    Yeah, I can see how Magosi would be epic win in goldfishing.

    Gladeheart is a beast in limited, but if you are trying to use it to nullify aggro, I feel a few more fetches are called for.

    So I was playing around with a mono-green landfall/land matters deck last night. I was using cards like Harrow, Rampart Growth and Khalni Heart Expedition to ramp into cards like Rampaging Baloths, [/c]Baloth Woodcrasher[/c], and Howl of the Night Pack. On one turn I managed to get a 24/24 Baloth Woodcrasher last night. Now granted, it was removed by Path to Exile after it was declared as an attacker. So this got me into thinking, how could I use that mana ramp for something useful? This is the first deck list that I have come up with:

    I haven't had a chance to play test this yet, but I think that there is potential for a deck here. I can reliably crack one of the expeditions the turn I drop it, which helps a lot. The only cards that I dislike are Pithing Needle and anything that can kill the enchantments, they are really important.

    It's an interesting idea, but why Magosi? I'd also suggest more Scalding Tarn and Verdant Catacombs to abuse the landfall.

    Unfortunately, I just can't see how this wins vs. Aggro.

    what do you think of my list?

    BTW my list crushes jund and pretty much everything not running blue/x or x/blue

    Well, I dunno. The land denial package is nice, but I don't think with Hedron Crab in the first 60 or half your sb being 2 or less.

    Quote from Kidofablackhole
    Oh wow, your sarcasm is really refreshing. I've never seen that being used on the internet...

    Anyways, How about some good ol' Immortal Coil+Luminarch Ascension. As long as you can remove cards from your graveyard you're golden.

    Just because you're being intentionally hypocritical and/or ironic, that doesn't make it less of a valid point. Scapeshift + Landfall is woohoo.

    And for Immortal coil, your point remains for it alone. As long as you can remove cards from your graveyard you'd always be golden with it.

    Quote from Chakragod
    Neither. They're both overrated cards that die too easily to removal.

    Goyf may only cost 2 mana, but that's also how much it costs to destroy it (or less).

    Baneslayer still wins with evasion, but again....too easily dealt with.

    Goyf still gets there on that two mana. The fact that you have to spend removal on it says a lot for its potency. And plus, if you used some removal maybe you just boosted the other goyfs you will inevitably see.

    Baneslayer costs 5, and the same 2 mana removal will destroy it (in general).

    I would say with my EVD I provided if you read that part {probably didn't} would show that I did put some thought into, so ignorance in this case is soley on the eye of the beholder.

    You're right, I didn't. I actually couldn't find it - EVD = Evidence, right? (that's not a joke, I actually do want to hear your argument) You said your facts are solid. Show me. Quote yourself so I can find it more easily.

    Tarmogoyf is still king over Baneslayer though. I believe you are correct on that.

    This is getting off-topic. We can take it to PMs.

    No need to since you brought that childish crap on {I think you got that}. So you could view it like this, you didn't bring a case as well, instead threw out some kinda grammer attack like it would pull the topic off goyf, and goodbye.

    Baneslayer Angel FTW not today angel! 35 18.42%
    Tarmagoyf, for sure. 155 81.58%

    Absence of knowledge defers to uncertainty. That is to say because I don't know for certain, and you don't know for certain, we cannot say that it will or will not be reprinted.

    Or we can say that maybe it will be reprinted. And we can say maybe it won't be reprinted. The point I'm trying to hammer in here is that NEITHER of us knows.

    Get off your high horse (childish crap). Humility in the face of ignorance is the most correct option. I am willing to admit that you could be right. You aren't even willing to accept any other possibility, dismissing it without even thinking about it.

    My opinion is shared by many

    Thanks, bye.

    Quote from S.M.


    In case you aren't getting it (I think you are though), we both have opinions. I think there is no good argument to say that Tarmogoyf will or will not be reprinted.

    Again, to reiterate, Tarmogoyf may or may not be reprinted.

    Also, pretty sure correct spelling dot correct spelling dot correct use of punctuation dot would be be a more accurate way to characterize my post.

    You've to be kidding me!
    I believe the day the reprint the goyf, I'll........run up and down the street with a Big sign duct taped to my back with the words "The world is coming to a end" just to see how long I can do it before someone throws change at me.
    You can disagree with me {and I would clearly him} all day and night if you would like {that's your free right as a person}, but my facts are solid.....that's all that matters when I make my comments....now if you could at least present a case, well that would be great because you gave me nothing other then a card frame one:rolleyes:, and wizards already knows that GOYF was a mistake.

    Woo. Adjective noun is adjective. In this case, replace adjective with "biased" or "narrowminded," and noun with "opinion."

    Your opinion is exactly that - an opinion. Wizards can do whatever the heck they want. Even if you quoted MaRo or Aaron Forsythe or whoever saying "We're not going to reprint Tarmo," it's not any kind of binding contract.

    You say he has to give evidence saying they will reprint Tarmogoyf. Nonsense. There's a possibility for anything to get rereleased. What if they put Tarmogoyfs in WWK packs? Oh snap?

    GJ on the quote in your sig.
