Anyone got some tips?
You know, card creation is really tough. I know I'm getting better, but I can't seem to break the "Top 3" wall. I tried new and radical and nobody liked it. I tried keeping it simple and playable and got closer, but I can't seem to break more than a C grade on average. What's a guy gotta do to get a little card creation love huh?
Anyone got some tips?
Hey everyone. I'm back. In the time i have been gone, everything has changed. Mirrodin is about to cycle out in Extended?!? I feel old....
But its great to be back. More fun mechanics and fairies aren't in Standard?!!? Get rid of Jund and I may be in heaven!
Hey. Its Meatball. Havent been on in over a month and before that, bout a few months. I havent been on a whole lot due to. . . . . personal reasons. Im gonna try to be on more. Its been tough though. Feel like i havent slept in a month.
I would also like to take this time to apologize to the CCL. I forgot i signed up for it (and i was never notified that i was definately in but hey) and then. . . life got nuts so im sorry any problems i may have caused.
This deck confuses me because i dont know how i want to go with it.
Deck G/U confusion?
2x Devoted Druid
3x Wistful Selkie
4x Murkfiend Liege
4x Shorecrasher Mimic
3 Talara's Battalion
1x Wall of Roots
4x Slippery Bogle
3x Birds of Paradise
2x Cold-Eyed Selkie
3x Twinblade Slasher
2x Garruk Wildspeaker
3x Invert the Skies
4x Favor of the Overbeing
1x Flooded Grove
4x Yavimaya Coast
Cards I have that I am considering:
Sideboard still in question
Wheel of Sky and Moon
BTW, when i get the Flooded Grove, they will replace the Coasts. I am also thinking of taking out the wall of roots for another devoted druid.
Im debating if I want to take out the invert the skies and run straight green for a better mana base and easier to accel. However, this will ruin my hybrid them, making the lieges less valuable. Thoughts?
I was uber bummed when i saw that itunes took control of Dr. Horrible's sing-along blog, especially since i hadn't seen how it ended (DONT WORRY NO SPOILERS HERE). So i cried a little and then i said NO. It couldnt be true. So i searched the net everywhere and i couldnt find it. . . ..
OR DID I?!?!?!!?
Thats right. The entire episode is available FO FWEE!!!
Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog.
Enjoy (if you comment plz dont spoiler it for the others)
Well it seems that every time i ask for help on the help forums, i get flagged. Sooooo, I will just ask here (take that corperate forums). Please only answer if you are 200% sure that it is correct.
1. My opponent has a Zur Enchanter with 2 Steel of the Godhead on it. Does the lifelink go into effect 2x? My opinion: It shouldn't. Does this kind of effect depend on if an enchantment or an instant/sorcery is used? What about 2x Loxodon Warhammer? If a creature has lifelink and you give it lifelink, will it trigger twice?
2. If my opponent blocks one of my double strikers, after first strike kills my opponents creatures, does the regular combat damage go threw and hit my opponent? My friend claims that if you give a creature double strike 2x that it deals first strike 2x then regular 2x. I say he is full of something that rhymes with snap.
3. Do counters stay on lands if they are no longer creatures?
4. If my G/U creature is enchanted with a card that gives it +2/+2, has a -1/-1 counter on it, and my opponent casts Snakeform, does it die?
There may be more later, but this will do for now.
So today i went to FNM which is rare because i work 24/7. Here is what i played:
Not the worst but not the best. Anywho here is the breakdown.
Match 1: Vs. Zur Enchanter Deck
This match ticked me off something fierce. For starters, this guy is one of the slowest players off all time, and 2.) he was playing a deck he didnt know. SOOOO. I got him down to 8 where i then saw 2 condemns, 3 oblivion rings, and an enchanter. I had O ringed one of his and i was hoping for either a Hammer or another o ring so i could o ring my own o ring then his Zur with 2 steel of the godheads would die. I got land he got Oona. I died. So as I start to shuffle my deck for round 2 TIME LIMIT WAS CALLED!!!!! IN 1 MATCH 50 MINS HAD PAST. So I get a nice little loss.
Match 2 - Vs Mono Red Agro
Game 1 - Turn 1 Llanowar, 2 Cavaliers, 3 shield. He scooped.
Game 2- 6 lands and an Oversoul. I keep. Top deck llanowar and birds. I loled my way to a win.
Match 3- Elf tokens
Both games right before he could swing for lethal, i get a hammer on a chameleon and the trample and life gain give me a win.
Match 4 - Revalark
For starters i hate control decks.
Game 1 - Wrath of God couldnt save him from a shielded oversoul.
Game 2 - Discovered that bounce could save him.
Drew on game three
The 2nd place dude has to drop, moving my 5th place to 4th for the finals.
Semi Final: Vs Big Mana
Both games I got finks and shield. He couldn't keep up.
Finals: Vs Elf Tokens
God tokens stink.
Game 1 - Finks + Shield + Hammer = victory
Game 2 - It was too fast. Turn 3 i was staring at an army of forest walking warriors.
Game 3 - One of my most proudest games. I got nothing but big creatures and no mana in my draws, so I am forced to mull down to four. I have a Llanowar, 2/2 Persister, chameleon, and a leige. Im ready to die. Top deck: Forest. Kool. Played the Llanowar. Next: Plains. Played my 2/2. Next: Shield. Played the shield. One more land and i get my liege. Next draw: Forest. Awsome. Victory is mine.
First place for me. EPIC!!! I felt so good i went home and changed my pants! I dont think i have ever top decked like this in my life.
Well its getting to be that time where we get our grubby little hands on some new cards. Personally, I love eventide. It's basically a big card breaker set. Prevent life gain, give any/all creatures persist, all the new avatars, the HOLY UNHOLY strength. *shudder* just thinking about it gives me the shivers. Anyone else?
I went to the midnight release of "The Dark Knight" and i wasn't expecting much. IMO, I have not been very impressed with the comic book movies since Spidey 3, and as such, expected this one to be another flop. What I got was a 2 hour 50 min movie that I thought ENDED TOO QUICKLY. This movie was amazing! Right off the bat, I knew this movie was gonna blow me away and it didn't disappoint! The entire movie is one giant mindf*** after another. Every time I thought I knew what was gonna happen, it did not the opposite, but something else entirely! I give this movie a humble 6 stars out of 5 and I highly recommend this movie to all people!
Well I was judged for the FCC today. Lost by one point. The judge DARED to say I stole my card from someone which is obserred because 1. I don't steal nothing and 2. I was the first one to post a card!!!!!! Needless to say I am not a happy camper. And whats worse, 3 of the 4 people in my group that advanced had some of the worst cards i have ever seen. I mean these were the cards that people would pull and then rip in 4 pieces and throw at someone.
Still can't think of a blue ability. I wanna go bounce but I can't fit it into place.
. . . . whats a guy to do?
