    This thread will be better suited for the commander/edh section so I will be moving this thread there

  • posted a message on Grenzo, Dungeon Warden - The Slot Machine of Value
    I picked up a foil Grenzo a few months ago but built goblins around him as a way to build a "weaker" deck, but quickly took the deck apart as he really relied on Krenko too much and didn't do anything without him. I might try this list though

    I'm at the point where I can't even justify keeping looting in the format, it fuels so many absurd decks that keeping a few other decks around that don't do much isn't worth the decks it enables

  • posted a message on Winning with undying: Is it possible?
    since this is a question on a deck idea without a specified format, I will be moving it to casual

    That's even color distribution and takes 32 slots, leaving 4 spaces for three color cards:
    BRU: Bolas
    RWU: Narset
    RUG: Sarkhan
    UWG: Tamiyo


    Edit: Locking in my predictions. It would be highly unlikely that it's completely accurate, but I bet it's not too far off.


    I really like that prediction

    do you think they would use this as a change to print a few 4 colour walkers?

    this has been bugging me a bit the past few days, so I'm gonna post here

    against tron and given the choice of either ripping their one one payoff or one of their mana rocks/expedition map, do you take the threat, an egg or the map? does having 2 discard spells change that? I was on the draw and took I believe the map first because that represented whatever he needed and then took the egg, leaving him with Ulamog. He then spun his wheels for a long time and drew the last tron land he needed to cast Ulamog turn before I would have killed him, which is variance I guess

    cards that I can see in Modern Horizons: counterspell,oubliette, arcane denial, mother of runes

    cards that I would like to see but are probably too good for modern: daze, fact or fiction

  • posted a message on State of Standard Thread: bans, format health, metagame, rotation, etc!
    This is probably the most I've enjoyed standard since at least Khans of Tarkir. There are a lot of viable decks right now and no optimal builds either.

    It's just a shame standard has been slow in my area for a few years and the death of PPTQs has encouraged a lot of other people around here to get out of the format/competitive Magic as a whole even

  • posted a message on Dont roast please, havent played in years!
    in my opinion, I'd start with whatever is in your budget of either Ravnica Allegiance or Guilds of Ravnica. They will be in standard for longer than the other sets, so you don't need to worry about them rotating soon. Plus you can get shock lands, which will hold their value if you choose to play modern after a while

    to be honest I think that the lack of any statement about the health of modern right now is the biggest take away from today. They didn't even say if they were watching anything

    pretty similar to Dominaria prerelease. I can see them experimenting with what they can do with walkers a lot since there's gonna be so many of them

  • posted a message on Do you enjoy modern right now?
    overall I would say I'm enjoying modern a lot right now, format doesn't seem too bad. I feel that maybe they could change it up a bit but I don't know if that involves banning or unbanning something. I would be fine with stoneforge mystic getting the unban even if they have to give it the golgari grave-troll treatment later

    just to add a bit onto that, I looked at the wiki here because this post made me curious. The reason why a deck without sleeves would have to be either all Alpha or none at all was because of the corners of Alpha cards are more rounded than non-Alpha cards. I haven't examined cards from Alpha closely enough to know the difference but there must be one if there's that rule


    It's noticeable, especially when mixing unsleeved cards. IIRC, the curved corner on Alpha used an older 1/2" arc blade. The printer inadvertently(?) ordered and installed new 4mm blades for the Beta run. Simply do a Google image search for Alpha vs Beta MTG cards and you can easily see the difference.

    In the early days, Alpha cards were flat out shunned and, for the most part, cheaper than their Beta versions. I woefully regret not buying a ****-ton of those cards back then. Oh well.


    I just looked and that's a huge difference. I guess with everyone using sleeves now, I probably just haven't noticed what versions of cards people use, even as someone who tries to play a reasonable amount of legacy.

    I remember reading about how Alpha cards were a lot cheaper than Beta for a while because of the difference in the shape of the corners. I think it was in an old Beckett magazine because i used to love their magazine when they actually made a magazine strictly about MTG

    I actually think that accumulated knowledge and unearth could be interesting in modern. Unearth is restrictive enough that I can't see it breaking much
