You could add 4xThoughtseize for hand disruption, also it doesn't rotate out. You could also add 4xHerald of Torment in place for the Boon of Erebos . Great deck so far. +1

You could make the lands a little spicier.

Cubism: How do you split your cube into packs?

Hey T/O, I'm designing a cube and I want your input. What is your preferred method for splitting the cube into packs? I've been able to find precious little information via the google.

Here is the synopsis of what I've seen:

  1. Randomize the entire cube and each player randomly selects 15 cards from the pile. This seems extremely high variance to me.
  2. Separate the cube by W/U/B/R/G/Colorless/Gold/Land. Pick 2 cards randomly from each section, then cut 1 card at random. This method seems okay if the cube has even counts across each of these sections, but would be less than ideal otherwise.
  3. Predetermined packs. This seems like a huge headache, I can't even.
  4. Structured random. Seems thorough and accounts for imbalances between colors, such as having a heavy multicolor component. Takes more time but a higher quality draft seems "worth it".

What is your preferred method?

I really hope Flanking does come back. I'd love to play a Boros Flanking deck with Iroas, God of Victory still in the format. Force them to multiblock and then apply the flanking effect to each. Mmmmm.

As of this morning the Campaign was officially successful, and we were even able to cross the line for the 2nd stretch goal! Thanks again to everyone who supported us. Because of the minimum order quantity for the custom sleeves, we're going to have hella extras once they arrive, so be on the lookout for those going on sale later through our website.

If this topic is still featured/stickied anywhere, it can now be safely unstuck.

Outside of modern though, this cycle wouldn't do much except make the islandwalk merfolk of legacy too good.

The only thing I really see missing is tutors. Gray Merchant of Asphodel seems underwhelming in a 3 color deck. Also white has a lot better options than Nevinyrral's Disk you may want to try Austere Command

While I agree it is nice that it's CMC is less, you can still expect that you will be casting sign in blood around the same time you could cast read the bones, because it is double black. Regardless, they are both strong cards, just a thought.

xzzane on For Whom The Bell Tolls...

Doesn't matter. Stony Silence is still the better card. It ruins affinity completely and has impacts on other decks liketron, which kataki does nothing against. And thanks. I know more about b/w tokens than anyone else on the site to my knowledge.

@Lord007 I could also see Flanking coming back and doing well with this theme, but they did say it was something people have been asking for so I'm skeptical. Flanking would be awesome though.

Theplusone on Green/black monster control

Add more Sylvan Caryatid and Elvish Mystic . (A playset of each)

glife1 on Boros Burn

I would replace Lightning Strike with Lightning Bolt . You should replace Magma Jet with Searing Blood .

The new life gaining wall from M15 is better than Ram.

Campo on Jalira's Ride

I tried something similar but it really only seems worth putting that much effort into the polymorph if you are going to win it the next turn or 2, so Worldspine Wurm was definitely my target. Check it out: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/poly-wurm/

What M15 cards would you include if you updated your list?

Rhadamanthus on If a creature with double-strike ...

9 minutes ago

Yes, that will work. Just note that if the blocking creature would be killed by combat damage, you need to sacrifice it before damage is actually dealt, otherwise you'll lose your chance to use the ability (this of course means it won't deal damage to the attacker).

ChiefWannaHacka on Reprint Dual Lands, slightly altered.

9 minutes ago

It almost removes the barrier to entry for legacy, period. Most decks can run off of 3-4 max 5 mana, so if playing 3 colors you can just have one of each, and hold fetches to grab basics or another if someone wastelands one of them.

GoldGhost012 on Binder M15 update

Interested in Phyrexian Revoker , Scuttling Doom Engine , Sliver Hive , Ob Nixilis, Unshackled , and Perilous Vault . I don't have any of your wants, but do you think we could work something out?

borosdrunkard on Intet, The Dreamer

It's a good start. I recommend Grozoth so you can reliably grab Artisan of Kozilek and Myojin of Life's Web .

Tigerhawk55 on Night of the Living Dead

I like what you've got going here. Something to look at, with the Endless Ranks of the Dead you already have Noxious Ghoul can be a board at the start of your turn every turn. I love running mono black zombies, Lord of the Undead and Death Baron super good,it looks like a fun deck.

Nevermind, its a blue red deck. Not red white...

glife1 on Boros Burn

What about Boros Reckoner or Boros Charm ? Also Ensoul Artifact is good, however its only useful when an Ornithopter comes into play, seeing as you have no other artifact creatures.

My mistake. I figured Whip of Erebos was the reanimator. Obzedat's Aid is in my opinion the best reanimation spell in Standard, and it should really be in your maindeck over Champion of Stray Souls . Additionally, I think you want some number of Satyr Wayfinder to get the combo off more consistently. It is my opinion that the Athreos, God of Passage s won't be doing much if you do choose to cut the Champions, so those could go if you want to maindeck a better reanimation target.

kojiro on Green Fire

That's exactly right. I love this deck so much. It's kinda like my mortal wombat deck (which will be next up to go in here..) 5-color mono-green deck.

mossflower on Human Birds

12 minutes ago

Currently, to maximize on being able to consistently play creatures off Descendants' Path , I only run 2 creature types: birds and humans. Elvish Mystic is, obviously, an elf. If Elvish Mystic were Deathrite Shaman (which is unfortunately banned), I would completely put it in over Avacyn's Pilgrim because it provides so much extra value. The ability to tap for green instead of white, however, is a complete non-issue: blue is the limiting color in the deck. There are turns in which I want to play multiple blue spells, but there are never any turns in which I want more than one green spell. And since I clearly already had a green source to play the mana dork, I don't need any more green.

I have given a lot of consideration to Arbor Elf , though. With Breeding Pool being the main land in the deck (almost all the other lands just fetch it), it basically reads: "T: Add G or U to your mana pool." Is this ability to tap for blue make it more worthwhile than the ability to easily keep playing off Descendants' Path ? I don't know: might be worth trying to switch these 2 cards.

As for Sage Owl vs Omenspeaker (Preordain is banned), this one is also hard to tell. Because I have Noble Hierarch to give exalted, I really appreciate cheap flying as a way to push damage through. Is flying better than +2 toughness? I'm leaning towards yes, but I could be wrong. This difference likely depends on the meta in which you're playing.

Either way, the important thing to examine is Scry 2 vs Rearrange 4. Omenspeaker 's effect allows me to easily get rid of cards I don't want to be drawing, which is valuable. Sage Owl 's effect, though, allows me to dig twice as deep. Combined with shuffling through fetch lands, I think this gives Sage Owl a slight advantage over Omenspeaker . I think this is another spot where I could be trying out both, though.

JWiley129 on Reprint Dual Lands, slightly altered.

I think it's an interesting idea, but I'm pretty sure untenable. The reserved list stops functional reprints, which this effectively is. I don't think making them Legendary stops them from being too good for any format.

Colten_Lee on If a creature with double-strike ...

13 minutes ago

So since a creature stays blocked until the end of combat does that mean you could block a creature then use some ability and sac your blocking creature and still be safe?

Theplusone on Red Devotion post rotation

SwiftDeath, ya your right, i didn't see the time you posted that.

MandrakeUY, like SwiftDeath said you really cant know. Even with all those one drops ( like Firedrinker Satyr ) things could change and most likely will make RDW unplayable.

BirkaBirkowski on Would an urborg the tomb ...

They would only be able to print a green one, if that, otherwise red would immediately overpower modern. Boiling Seas , Flashfires .... Nobody needs that.

omnipath on Put your hands where I ...

13 minutes ago

Okay! After much playtesting I have come to agree that Indulgent Tormentor and Hall of Triumph could be replaced with better cards. Took them out, for +1 Devour Flesh , +1 Desecration Demon and +1 Master of the Feast . The curve graph now looks very pretty.

@Dreno33: I love Athreos, God of Passage - this deck is based on my Orzhov Athreos build getting out of hand which was super fun and I will probably go back to at some point. However - this build is going to stay pure mono-b and focused. Check out getting out of hand to see my Athreos thoughts.

Programmer_112 on Inspired Nightmarish Death Control

You could replace Read the Bones with Sign in Blood if you are still interested in the card draw aspect (plus, you can kill your opponent if they're below 3 life). Otherwise, Thoughtseize would make a good addition, I think.

I dont have a 4th verdict or an Elspeth. And I dont netdeck. I enjoy building decks that are my own. I tried netdecking (MUD) and I didnt feel like I was playing something I made. I came up with this deck and built it out of cards I already had. Plus I dont care about making it better. I rotates in 2 months so theres no point in buying more verdicts/revs/elspeth for this deck.

This is to difficult to read. Go to deck builder, build the deck, you can probably just copy paste your post, and post the link in the comments. Then people will be able to help you with your deck.
