Dec 15, 2010"Alternate art that looks like THIS!"Posted in: The Rumor Mill
lol like they actually think its good art...
or maybe trying to convince us?
But seriously, don't buy a box promos usually
come with the 5 mana symbols as the water
mark. Maybe its an exception because of the
whole mirran v. phrexian, but Memoricide
buy-a-box versioncame with 5 mana watermark
so who knows.
Hopefully this is just some terrible mock up.
Dec 2, 2010mara_eNtrO posted a message on [EDH] Elder Dragon Highlander is now Commander; EDH Precons with new cards!This seems like pretty positive news all in allPosted in: The Rumor Mill
Wizards have been designing cards for EDH
for a while now and now they just have an
official outlet to do so, its still a player
community run format so thats good.
Besides I've been wanting to build a BGW
graveyard EDH deck for a bit now and that
general seems pretty nice
Nov 24, 2010I've seen this a while ago on this site, but I don't think it has a dedicated thread.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Looks like some sweet piece of card
Ya its been in the promo thread for a bit:
Oct 19, 2010Posted in: Standard ArchivesQuote from only run very noobThis deck is awesome.
Kiln fiend isnt needed anymore as frost titan is just much better in the meta, it also dies to Celestial Purge which gets sided vs ascention anyways. Calcite Snapper is another choice for a transformational SB. Its better than fiend in the matchups you bring it in. (Control)
This deck is a lot differant than the Pyromancer deck of old, you dont try to just combo out and in on a specific turn, it plays much more like a control deck with an insane card advantage engine than a combo deck.
2 Call to mind is all you need, 3 is too much, once you get to the point where you want to be call to minding you will have plenty of library manipulation.
This could be a real contender this standard season, what hate cards are the hardest to play around/through? War priest of thune is easy enough to beat (into the roil'ing PA in responce or just playing multiple ascentions) White leyline is easy enough to beat with into the roil. Memoricide seems like it could hurt a lot if it comes down before ascention or if its played in a deck that can bounce/destroy the ascention.
I SB frost titan (2 of) in every single matchup and its actually how I win most of my game2/3's. Ive been wondering if it'd be good maindeck or if that would just make it worse (people leave in removal).
Oct 17, 2010Posted in: SpeculationQuote from person_manYou are making an AWFUL lot of assumptions here, but the general gist I agree with, i.e. NOT WORTH IT.
Ya absolutely, but one would have to make
a lot of assumptions to argue its worth
keeping them as well. Either way its speculation.
Im just trying to bring some real world
values into my speculation, ie Legacy
Oct 17, 2010How much is a prerelease? 30+dollars?Posted in: Speculation
You'll get 3 SoM packs and 3 faction boosters.
So to make money off those three boosters you'll
have to wait long enough that those boosters are
Urza's legacy boosters are around 10 dollars each
and they seem to be the most recent booster pack
to reach that level and they are 11 years old now.
So basically you'd have to keep them for at least 11
years (maybe less because they are limited edition,
but maybe more because they provided nothing different
a regular Besieged booster wouldn't provide) and you'll
just make your money back.
Personally, I'd rather just crack them all and have a fun
day of magic.
Oct 16, 2010I've been playing a bit with Mike's list and to be honestPosted in: Standard Archives
I don't think its that great. Chapin is right, theres just
way too many dead cards in the deck. Drop the archive
traps and other trap cards and just run straight up UR
I was playing similarly that way pre-rotation as I didn't
feel like investing 40 some dollars in time warps as they'd
be gone in a month and it just seems solid, sure you don't
win out of no where, but you win and it seems more
consistent than trapping them.
Everyone here should listen to this:
Chapin's deck, taken from the interview above:
UR pyromancerMagic OnlineOCTGN2ApprenticeBuy These Cards Lands 23
2 Halimar depth
4 Scalding Tarn
4 Pyromancer Ascension
4 Lightning Bolt
4 Burst Lightning
4 See Beyond
4 Mana Leak
3 Into the Roil
3 Jace Beleren
2 Call to Mind
2 Frost Titan
1 Jace Beleren
2 Jace, the Mind Sculptor
2 Forked Bolt
He's a bit unsure about the sideboard concerning
things like flashfreeze, pyroclasm and forked bolts,
so thats just an example.
