    welcome back to the thread.

    @everyone

    sorry I've disappeared for awhile. My Windows 10 pc was a victim of srttrailerror.txt... cannot boot for days, and took awhile before I could restore things again. I'll catch up reading posts and updating the primer in the next few days.

    I hope everyone is doing fine. Smile

    @Starstorm

    that's great news indeed! When you post the goldfish link, I will add it to the Top 8's section.

    you're levelling up your piloting skills with this deck.

    congrats on the good results Gerant. Smile

    hmm, so Professor of Symbology.. is actually good. This looks like the birth of a new variant of the deck. Would you like me to add Professor of Symbology to card choices section in the primer, or do you need to test it further?

    that's a lot of grinding you did. nice work.

    if you like, I can put your Ranger build as another sample deck list in the primer. You will be credited of course. So we would have another variant of Emeria there.

    quite informative. Info appreciated.

    if have time, and can mention how you side boarded. Those things you said could actually be added to the primer sideboard guide section. So we would have fresh data on how to fight Hammer Time, and Hell's kitchen decks. Smile

    nice to see your build doing well. That Hammer Time deck looks dangerous with instant speed, but you did manage to beat it. Smile

    how does the Hell's Kitchen deck work? Is their combo fast to happen, and how do we prevent it? Info would be appreciated, thanks.

    The 8/26/21 random card of the day is Kor Cartographer. If you have any comments, combos or a decklist involving this card, feel free to share.


    it's weak for modern and other stronger formats, but I do remember it was a useful card during it's time at Standard. The land fetching ensured that there would a be a Baneslayer Angel on turn 5, assuming the player has the angel on hand. It also allowed faster build up of plains for Emeria, the Sky Ruin.

    sorry to hear about the fnm.

    card advantage from 8 thoughtcast effects do add a lot of resilience to Affinity. And I used to be a legacy affinity player, the Etched Champion.. I bring three of them in against removal heavy decks, it's hard to get rid of if the opponent does not have board wipes or sac effect. If you expect to face a lot more affinity.. I suggest adding one Stony Silence to the sideboard. The stony would prevent the indestructible artifact lands from producing mana, and prevent cranial plating from being equipped, and make clue tokens unusable.. ---- however, It would cause batterskull and kaldra cannot be equipped to our other creatures.. but I still believe it would have a more negative affect on the affinity player, more than it has a negative effect on us.

    nice card, an effective sideboard card against certain kinds of storm decks. Sold my two copies years ago, as I needed cash at that time.

    on corona.. thanks for the concern. Yeah, things are still intense over here. I hope the corona situation is not bad in your country.

    on card choices. Heliod's Intervention does look good against Burn. Their new eidolon + vortex looks painfully hot...

    Goodluck on your next tourney. Looking forward to see the results. Smile

    congrats on doing well. Smile

    that's an interesting build. So it looks like, builds without sfm can still perform.

    Hey guys, sorry vacations got in the way and i completly forgot to put the results i talked about before.

    Also hope everything is okay with you and your loved ones Fluff! We'll get through this eventually!

    Round 4 - Won 2-0 Against Hardened Scales

    Hadn't played this matchup before and was honestly quite suprised by it's resilience. The Ozolith, Throne of Geth to avoid Exile based effects and Animation Module were actually cards that gave me trouble, specially when Urza's Saga just gets everything they need. But the removal was just too much and picking the right targets proved crucial for a win.

    Sideboarded out: 2 Mortarpod, 1 Sword of Fire and Ice
    Sideboarded in: 2 Seal of Cleansing, 1 Sorcerous Spyglass

    I think this FNM had a great variety of decks and being able to deal with aggro, midrange and control with more or less ease is a testament to it's power.



    I hope you had a nice vacation. ^____^

    well, and somehow I'm still alive. Not joking.. someone died from the delta variant only 20 or 30 meters from where I work. Soldiers sealed off that street, and took everyone who were in close contact with the deceased to a quarantine facility.

    back to mtg... nice to see you finally got a match against the new Hardened Scales deck. Is it a tough match-up for us, or it's easy enough to beat?
