Biismuth on FBB Black Lotus?

3 weeks ago

When I was young, I played sometimes with magic card of my dad, looked at them and tried to understand the rules. I can remember now a card that I had in my hand and found it realy bad because it "only" give mana and isn't a big creature, and I'm not sure but I think that maybe this card was a Black Lotus. I start playing magic recently, so I try to find my dad's cards, but unfortunately, I didn't find all the card, and sometimes I discover a card somewhere in my house. I know that all the collection is french black border card. But among all the card I recover, guess what, no Black Lotus. So I want to know, did the Black Lotus reprint in FBB or not? Because when I searched some picture of Black Lotus, I saw no picture of a FBB one. So, does it worth to search this card on my house or it's just my bad memories, and Black Lotus in FBB was never print?

I saw your post on your rules question mentioning you did not know how to link cards. Here's a brief intro, just so you know moving forward:

For cards use double brackets:

[[Black Lotus]]

For other players, use the following:

I'm not sure which format this is meant for, but it clearly isn't Standard. As the the legality checker will tell you, all but 3 non-basic land cards are not legal in Standard. Many cards in the deck are not even Legacy legal (Sol Ring, Vampiric Tutor, Demonic Tutor) and the variance in power level is off the charts (Sol Ring is almost as good as Black Lotus or a Mox, while I'm afraid the same can't be said for Fleshwrither). All the one-ofs suggest that the deck might be Singleton, which isn't listed as a format on Tappedout. Finally, the sideboard is 20 cards, and I know of no format that allows more than 15.

Also, there are some inconsistencies that I can't figure out. For example, I don't know how you expect to cast Zur with only two nonblue sources in your deck, but I can tell you it will be very difficult. In addition, some cards simply don't make sense (I'm not sure what you're Flashing in or why, and I don't know what you expect to steal with Aura Thief). In addition, while the majority of the combos you talked about work, I have no idea how Entomb + Fleshwrither gives you Academy Rector.

All in all, the only recommendation I can give for sure is to add more colors to your mana base. If you can give the format you play this in, and possibly explain a few more tech-y cards, I could probably give more feedback. I hope that the deck is working for you though.

"Counterspell: the best card in all of Magic's history"

But Mana Drain is strictly better.

And Black Lotus/Time Walk/Timetwister/Ancestral Recall exist.

And in terms of countermagic, Force of Will, Mental Misstep, Foil, and Daze are zero mana, Dispel, Flusterstorm and Swan Song are one mana, Negate/Mana Leak are more splashable, Arcane Denial/Remand are more splashable and replace themselves, Disallow is more versatile, Time Stop is more powerful, verastile, and Mindbreak Trap is more powerful (hits more), gets around "can't be countered", and can be free.

Counterspell isn't the best in any category in terms of counterspells, not like it comes anywhere close to the best card.

sylvannos on Most Consistent Early Turn Win

I have to agree with Murpy: Academy-Belcher (or the People's Cannon) is probably the fastest deck with the most consistent turn 1 kill in any format. Although, I prefer the version which uses Land Grant (find Tropical Island so Goblin Charbelcher always kills) and Living Wish (grab Tolarian Academy out of the sideboard).

@StonedJesus: lmao kid you're not even using Tolarian Academy, Tinker, Voltaic Key, moxen, Black Lotus, or Time Vault. The fuck outta here with that tryhard casual bullshit.
