    posted a message on is mono white actually that bad.
    I love my mono-white deck (Rune-tail, Kitsune Ascendant), and it does very well.
    I found the first key is to get creative. Without a ton of card advantage, artifacts become critical to help keep up. But there are some white cards that help:
    Arcane Encyclopedia
    Seer's Sundial
    Mind's Eye
    Endless Horizons
    Weathered Wayfarer
    are all good options. And don't forget the lands:
    Emeria, The Sky Ruin
    Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx
    Terrain Generator
    Thawing Glaciers
    all do good work.

    And the other key is to get creative with your strategy as well. While the Avacyn / Mass-LD angle seems like a winner, I'm telling you now that you will experience a quite real hate-storm at the majority of tables. If you're okay with that, go forth and conquer! If not, try to find a more subtle angle for your deck overall.

    I used Reincarnation to save my Omnath, Locus of Mana and all my stockpiled G
    It set off a big argument about the card, and a huge spike in cell-phone research as everyone tried looking it up at once.. lol

    Choose one -
    • Target creature gains defender.
    • Return target tapped permanent to its owner's hand.
    • Shuffle a card from your hand into your library. Draw two cards.
    Addendum - If you cast this spell during your main phase, choose two instead.

    I didn't read the actual comics, but this reminds me of the Marvel story with Apocalypse and the Twelve. He had to drain specific mutants' powers in that one, so it will be interesting if it works that way with the PWs he's looking to syphon from.
    Have to assume he will start to succeed, to feel his oldwalker powers start to come back, and then it will all fall apart. Possibly with a secretly Jace-recruited Garruk slamming his axe into Bolas? :p

    How about..
    Boros Phoenix
    Flying, Lifelink
    At the beginning of each end step, if Boros Phoenix is in your graveyard and you have less than 10 life, return Boros Phoenix to the battlefield.

    then at least it would feel a bit more Mythic..

    Whenever a land enters the battlefield under your control, if it's the second land you had enter the battlefield this turn, destroy target land.

    I have to agree on the can't be countered, that just pushes it too much. How about, "If ~ would be countered by a spell or ability, return ~ to your hand."

    posted a message on Bolas's next step.
    Here is my progression for LOD (Legion of Doom):

    1. Gatewatch spreads news of LOD, putting Planeswalkers on high alert
    2. LOD uses eternals to draw out Planeswalkers by attacking home planes
    3. LOD captures as many Planeswalkers as they need
    4. LOD uses Ral's new machine (spark engine?) on Dominaria to reverse the Mending changes by draining sparks

    I think it matches up with Bolas' goals and sets up the kind of Avengers-style confrontation that creative seems to like.

    I agree, that was a beautiful wrap-up story. So many touching moments handled with expertise.

    I REALLY despise the Gatewatch's decision making process re: Amonkhet.
    It would have have been so epic to see them hopping around, checking in with people we haven't seen for a while. Jace going to to Garruk for advice on hunting could have been epic..

    I def. agree that the major upcoming thing they need is an incredibly humbling kick in the ass. They are going to be so outclassed by Bolas' Legion of Doom.
