    It's less about that and more about this place overall being dead as all hell compared to what it was in the past..

    ^this^

    I am more often then not seeing people i recognize. You will have the occasional lurker pop up but overall, the decklist subforum is generally dead. This forum is also rather dead, topics will show up but nothing really gets hyped until the spoilers are released. Then it will die down until the next set is spoiled.

    If you want feedback, you actively have to ask for it.

  • posted a message on Ramos' Green Garden
    So I am wanting to work on a Ramos deck that focuses on green. i know you are thinking that I must be nuts to focus on one color when Ramos best aspect is being able to use all colors and more colored spells makes him bigger and lets his ability com online faster.

    That is why I am not just focusing on green but instead Hybrid green. (like Vexing Shusher)
    While the deck itself will have a majority of green card (Like ramp... which allows me to get my off color basics) Green alos has the ability to poop out a lot of low costing spells, meaning that i could possibly get Ramos online without even having to use a 2 color card. (I do plan to however)

    One win con is going to be Door to Nothingness. along with just winning the old school way. (Beat face)

    I may also use Approach of the Second sun but that is just a maybe.

    in the meantime i looking for help on the main meat if the deck.

    Ral pings every time one of the copies copies each other and then everyone is dead.

    that is just rude. two card combo with Ral and any Twincast effect.

    It's wild that Ral, Storm Conduit turns the classic do-nothing play of Forking a Fork into a win. Wow! An infinite combo available since Alpha finally has its chance to shine.

    What is the infinite combo? I don;t see it.

    Now talk about a new staple. Anyone who's ever been on the receiving end of an Aura of Silence slowing you down, how's this for ALL of your spells.

    Basically, if your opponents have no way to directly deal with it the tempo boost it gives you in comparison makes it hard to lose.

    Bolas has a very large ego, even bringing his statue with him.

    But pair this with Aura of silence and my Jhoira deck starts to cry.

    So we are at the 4th Niv-mizzet incarnation now. Not only is he still not a planeswalker, but he is now five color.

    I actually see a few interesting decks that could use him, but i am actually curious how viable he will be in my Dragon tribal deck.

    A lot of these cards are obscurely worded. Like widespread brutality, is Army a new creature type? If so, that means that it is a VERY bad rare. (N Standard maybe no so much if you are running 4 of them, and it could be good in sealed, but that is as far as i would go.


    You have 32 two color dragon to chose from quite a bit are usually in either of the Ur-dragon deck (the scion and the true ur dragon)

    But if the rules are made so you can grab beyond 2 color restriction then another 29 grabables added depending on what’s in the deck

    If you can grab 3 color and up dragons then yes it’s worth it

    my deck has 13 two-color cards. So it is not worth running him. As for a deck with Niv at the helm, That has way more potential. You can build a deck focused on his ability.


    I'm planning to adjust my Scion deck to have 22-23 two-color cards. That seems to work fine in testing. Sometimes new Niv's ability misses, but more often it finds three cards. & even one card is okay. I'd probably run a 6/6 Dragon for five that merely drew a card on ETB.

    My deck is more adjusted to needing those mono color cards showing up, not always but if I need a board wipe and pass by all or even pass by my tutors to find them, well then I just lost a lot of a ground. Overall it is not worth it to me.

    As for running him in the 99 of say an interesting ramos deck I saw (One that ran "mono green" but a lot of it was hybrid mana cards. So given that a lot were 2 color (Even if all he had to do was pay green to cast it) it would probably benefit from Niv.

    Storrev in the two deathtouch colors with built-in trample? Nice.

    EDIT: New Krenko loves combat, too!


    Combat! EDH will have MORE combat!

    Aggro will be a thing, but Battecruiser still trumps it if they can get running. In 4 player matches, Battelcrusier has a better chance at beating aggro.

    You're telling me there's a rare that's targeted to standard or casual players instead of edh? Or maybe it's aimed to an unspoiled commander that amasses and there's no way to know until the whole set is spoiled? Stop the presses, we got a BAD RARE in here! What was wotc thinking?!?

    Honestly this set mostly looks like commander gold so far. But they do tend to spoil the edh-able-est stuff first.


    I disagree, I still feel it is bad, unless you are indeed running 4.
    I am sill wiating to see creature type Army though. (I will admit i have not read many cards, but the only rmy reference i have seen is this card that gives you a 0/0.

    and then i have questions about interaction with doubling season


    Relentless Advance,Invade the City,Dreadhorde Invasion yeah you need to look more cards.....that's just from a quick look...

    Well, while Invasion does give you something to work with (lifelink) the rest are just boosting the power of something that can be chump blocked for days. at least Brutality allows you to wipe the board with a big enough army creature.


    Neheb, is he part of Nicol bolas' army? I mean Neheb is from amonkhet, so since he is not a planeswalker the only reason he should on ravnica is because he is loyal to bolas. Which brings me to another question, will the scarab, scorpion and locust god show up too? I would assume Bolas would bring his best soldiers with him in addition to his armies.

  • posted a message on Interacting with Mana Abilities
    Okay so Just last night (As it is 4:15 AM right now) We had an Incident involving Ramos, Dragon Engine and Runic Armasaur. I hav enough counters of Ramos to activate his ability and my opponent was going to draw a card.
    I informed him he could not because it was in fact a mana ability. A quick google search also stated this. Fair enough he did not draw. But it was still a little confusing to him when i was explaining that any ability that adds mana to a mana pool (Regardless of the requirements) is a mana ability.

    this is where Chandra, torch of Defiance (or really nay PW that adds mana) comes into play, as he has state that in the past he has seen people Stifle PW abilities that add mana. While i do not believe that is possible, i am curious if PWs (Seeing as their mana abilities are loyalty activate) have a weird interaction.
