    Coveted Jewel is not looking really appealing to me. I may however put it in mairsil. Decent replacement for gilded lotus. (Though i need to get a gilded lotus too.)

  • posted a message on Rooftop Storm in EDH
    If i am playing Thraximundar and have rooftop storm in play. And say Thrax has died once already. Would i still be able to pay 0 to cast him from command zone or will i still have to pay an additional 2?
    I ask because Rooftop storm specifies that may pay 0 where other cards (like the spoiled Geode Golem) says without paying mana costs.

    Colorless Eldrazi decks might like this. Artifact ramp, drop it on turn 3-4, it only needs to deal a single point of damage and you cast either Ulamog/Kozilek.

    Any deck with expensive commanders would enjoy it but yes. Eldrazi will get the most bang for its buck. (As they are teh only commander options that i can recall that are 10+ CMC

    i do ask about partners. Can you cast both at once?

    I love the card as while it may not always get you the mana you need (like playing ghave and eachopponent is playing bant decks. It still provide 2 colors In most cases it's a tti-land that does not ETB tapped.

    I see people are still discussing this set assuming Planeswalkers as Commanders, but I didn’t see any confirmation of that in the recent news about the decks’ colors and themes. Did I miss something about Planeswalkers definitely being in the set?
    they did announce PWs in this set but I cannot find the article that said such. (Given how many it is believe it is PWs that should be enough proof,)

    off-kilter tribal is pretty fun for me. I love my colors-tribal Ur-Dragon deck, which runs effects like Civic Saber, Might of the Nephilim, and Knight of New Alara alongside as many 5c and 4c creatures as possible. Nobody can really be mad about getting beat down by a buffed-up K&T.

    Bird-Tribal Derevi is also fun. It's just generally interesting when you take a commander with an obvious build direction (dragon tribal, stax) and then go somewhere completely different with them. Again, when you hit with 8 bird tokens to untap/tap and charge up your Otherworld Atlas, then next turn deck everyone by making them draw 81 cards, it's not an efficient strategy but it is a memorable one.
    but you decky yourself too. How are you suppose to win? (And don't say that is not the poi t. I know that is it the point. But if you play MTG just to end every match in a draw. Why bother playing at all? I don't mind uncomve tional Derevi decks. But I rather not playbagainstbdecks with no win con and instead just game ending.

    The only issues i have with last year (and this year)'s commander procuts are
    -Not doing Ally guilds. We already had all color combinations (Minus colorless) except for ally guilds
    -Doing only four instead of 5. (i could easily think of a fith theme for both last year and this year)

    Now an addition issue with this year, The themes are boring to me. Literally I am not buying the product unless there are cards in the sets I desperate want (Like Teferi's Protection)

    I think rape and could be fun as the only creature (Or one of the only creatures. Maybe toss in saladhima so you get 2 drakes per spell. Clever inperso at or can copy many things. .maybe your meta has token doubles. Copy that. Same with copy enchantme t if you are again playing against swarm decks.

    Universal pumps are great. Along with akroma's memorial.

    I can't think of much else really. I would build.talrand as a spellslinger deck. If you have omniscience, a way to fill your hand sufficiently will do wonders. The memorial will Give you haste.

    Kindred discovery is also a must as each drake that is created and that tracks will net You more cards.

    This is exactly what gets said every time, and people keep lining up to buy. People can't expect something WotC never promised, then cite 'loss of trust' when it does not happen. That's not logical.
    That's ridiculous. Players are absolutely entitled to be upset if WotC doesn't deliver a satisfactory product, regardless of their explicit or implicit promises. If I feel that WotC has consistently proven time and again they don't actually know/care about what their players want, I would call that a loss of trust in the company. And lets just say, WotC hasn't exactly had a stellar record recently. Snubbing Serra once could be an oversight. If Serra is snubbed again (assuming other oldwalkers are in fact in C18) I have to assume it's intentional, and it would cause me to be dissatisfied with the product and WotC in general. That's perfectly logical.

    Can you name any set where they have had a stellar record? (I mean for the standard. Not so I off products like commander. Every set releases a binchbof walkers that most do not want. And they started that stupid BaB promo crap. WotC do not are about their co summers at all. The Only reason they even do commander is the money.

    It's the same with the anthologies. The secondary market would have been the only way to get mimeoplasm deck. But now you canbgetbit again and WotC gets money for it.

    They released the global Aries worldwide even though it was suppose to only be China. MONEY.

    Seems like the same objections as last year with "Tribal is so lame". C17 was the most purchased product of the Year. Can't we just wait and see?

    Who said tribal was lame? I mean the tribes were not super appealing to me but i still love tribal. Dragons was making me itch the second Ur dragon and ramos were spoiled. I bough that the second it came out (And I am taking the 10th off work just so I can buy the product at midnight)

    But we will see if I still want to buy the product. The themes this year are "meh" at best. I might buy one unless a really cool card gets spoiled (like Teferi's Protection) in which case I may still only buy (that) one, or a few. (I bought all four of c17, well 3 of them, my bro bought cats. i still don;t have a wizard deck or vampire, i just dissected them for cards. (kindred Dominance, Teferi's Protection.)

    Not printing Serra would be a huge middle finger to the playerbase and would piss a great many players off.

    They made sure to show off the new church of Serra on Dominaria, made some new Serra themed cards in M19 and they even made a Serra themed Angel lord. They know people want Serra after the Nahiri Incident.

    If they fail to deliver this year, wizards would lose a lot of trust and respect from the player base.
    This and Kamigawa themed cards. I completely agree.
    with llorwyn, theros, and innsitard, it is very possible we will get a kamigawa themed card.

    Volton or swarm can kill players my ghave deck. One win con is just producing billions of tokens and swing.

  • posted a message on Thought Experiment: How would the Commander format be different if tutors were banned?
    As it has been said. Combo decks are far less powerful due to having to rely on drawing the card. Blue is still the most viable due to How powerful card draw will be. Aggro shines more. Fetch lands would need to go since they can tutor shock and duals in addition to basics.

    Green would still be good since they can still rampnout fatties.

    The format would warp but not in a bad way. It would actually change format to a far more casual format. But sadly. Decks that are ready comparative and do not tutor will still be comparative and No longer worry about even faster combo decks.

    And stax is all a lot more powerful.

    How mono blue heavy is your meta? It is funny but unless you can guarantee it will hit and possibly neuter your opponents, no reason to run it.

    Quote from Gashnaw »

    While Rakdos is an interesting creature, there is a guy at my LGS who already plays him and while i am not completely opposed to playing deck with the same commander, i rather not.

    That said I think my RB is going to be Wort, Boggart Auntie. I Built Wort goblin tribal before, and if I switch Purphoros to be Zo-zu i will not have goblin tribal again, which means Wort would find a nice home.

    I'm a big fan of Wort, Boggart Auntie as a Goblin Tribal Commander, but you may also want to consider Partner-less Vial Smasher the Fierce.

    nah, vial smasher is going in the 99. He is great an all but i feel wort offers more support.
