TriusMalarky on Fixing White in EDH

Lol. If someone thinks that board wiping or casting a spell that makes his deck not work "isn't Magic" then you shouldn't play with them, because they're toxic.

Granted, my early MtG days were pretty crazy. I did win with a weird lifegain stompy deck, but I shifted to a combo deck that was only beatable by the guy who used 8rack or the people who added Nevermore to their sideboard. It wasn't what you'd call 'real Magic' if you're a person who still thinks Colossal Dreadmaw is an actualy good card rather than a meme-y good card.

So obviously this ranking is just a joke. Colossal Dreadmaw at number 9?

Come on, y’all.

Ajani, Leonin of Naya

Legendary Creature - Cat Warrior
First Strike.
Whenever a source would deal more than 1 damage to a creature you control, prevent 1 of that damage. (If multiple effects would reduce damage, apply this effect last.)
When Ajani, Leonin of Naya would enter the graveyard, you may exile him instead. If you do, search your library for an Ajani Planeswalker, reveal it and put it into your hand, then shuffle your library.

No idea how lore compliant that is, but hey, why not?

Now, everyone knows that Colossal Dreadmaw is too OP. Make a more balanced version. ;)

Thinking about adding a second Wildborn Preserver, maybe replace a Colossal Dreadmaw

Poong, The Semi-Aquatic

Legendary Creature - Elder Hippo Shaman

When Poong enters the battlefield, if you cast it, each opponent creates a 3/3 green and blue hippo token. You control each player who controls a hippo token.


Seems like fun to me.

Challenge: make a card that synergises really well with Colossal Dreadmaw

TypicalTimmy on What is MaRo's phenotype?

2 months ago

A phenotype is a set of observable characteristics displays within a given environment.

In MTG, there are Spike, Johnny, Timmy, Vorthos and Mel.

There are also overlaps between them all, too.

I'm curious as to if it was ever addressed on Mark Rosewater's phenotype? The reason I got thinking is because he has stated that the reason Colossal Dreadmaw has been reprinted so many times despite still being a relatively new card in MTG history is because he just loves it that much. And sure, it's a nice draft bomb.

It's also a bit of a Timmy card. Admittedly, it's a Timmy trap card.

It sinks all of your mana into it, it doesn't have an ETB effect, it doesn't immediately threaten (haste, activated abilities, etc), it doesn't offer it's own protection (such as evasion).

It's a 6/6 with trample. By the time you can spend 6, you can do so much better.

But, it is a Common and as I said it's a decent bomb to tilt the boardstate in your favor for a turn or two.

It's a Timmy card, no doubt. Since Mark is so enthralled by it to reprint it seemingly every chance he gets, does this elude toward Mark being a Timmy?
