TheDuggernaught on Selling Cards -- Profits to ...

4 days ago

A friend of mine is going through a bit of a rough stretch. Her mom pretty much cut all ties with her-- kicked her out of the house, kicked her off the insurance, cut her off the cell phone plan, will not help her pay for college anymore; and to boot, she was recently diagnosed with a heart defect and narcolepsy. She does not have much of a support network in the area, so she is also moving half way across the country in a few months to live with a few friends in Portland. I have a lot of cards I do not need or really play with often. As such, I figured I might help her out by selling some of my collection and passing on the proceeds to her to help pay for some of the moving, medical, and daily living costs.

All cards are NM or LP unless otherwise stated. What I have for sale is:

1x Promo Griselbrand -- $10

2x Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip -- $6 ea.

1x Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet -- $16

4x Grave Titan -- $5.50 ea.

4x Tezzeret, Agent of Bolas -- $15.50 ea.

4x Time Sieve -- $10 ea.

2x Ajani Vengeant Duel Deck Foil MP -- $4.50 ea.

1x Swords to Plowshares Revised -- $1.50

4x Yosei, the Morning Star -- $4 ea

4x Baneslayer Angel (2 are From the Vault Foils) -- $6 ea

4x Reveillark Foil -- $15 ea

4x Archangel of Thune -- $17 ea

1x Sunken Ruins -- $12

1x Flooded Grove -- $14

4x Urza's Mine (MP/HP) -- $0.75 ea

4x Urza's Power Plant (MP/HP) -- $.75 ea

4x Urza's Tower (MP/HP) -- $1 ea

1x Noble Hierarch -- $42 ea

1x Ugin, the Spirit Dragon -- $30

2x Wurmcoil Engine Promos -- $15 ea

1x Jace, Architect of Thought Duel Deck Foil -- $1

1x Misdirection -- $1

I am willing to haggle a bit on price if you want. I did try to price them a bit below MP TCG low. I accept cash or Paypal gift. Pictures of cards available upon request. Any questions, just ask! :)

seems really good, awesome deck. but only 94 cards? Add maybe Damia, Sage of Stone, Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, Joiner Adept, Deathrite Shaman, or just more lands.

Ja1n on EDH Sidisi, Brood Tyrant

6 days ago


-1 Corpse Connoisseur (Entomb felt better and can get you off to a great early start).

-1 Nyx Weaver (While has great synergy with Sidisi, is definitely less powerful than anything else).

-1 Ghost Quarter (Deck wanted ramp and I'm comfortable with 36 lands)

-1 Whip of Erebos (Exiling something always felt like too big a cost)

-1 Jarad's Orders (Effect replaced with Entomb and I couldn't really think of a card I wanted in my hand that I wouldn't rather just have in the yard, although maybe Big Game Hunter)

+1 Deathrite Shaman (Creature and ramp, gets a big tick of approval! Plenty of lands in the yard for redundancy. If it really screws over the Worm Harvest plan I'll reconsider.)

+1 Entomb (This is a reanimate deck, this guy and a reanimate in the opener is a big game!).

+1 Birthing Pod (Sacrificing creatures is great! Getting more powerful creatures from that is great).

+1 Dosan the Falling Leaf (Makes the Laboratory Maniac a more reliable win-con on your turn)

+1 Brutalizer Exarch (Tutors where you can dredge it into the yard or draw it is awesome and so is tucking annoying permanants. Deck does feel low-ish on removal for a black deck to he helps.)

Correct me if I'm wrong, but Deathrite Shaman isn't frontier legal...

I would definitely run some graveyard hate for decks like Reanimator, Storm and Dredge in the form of Relic of Progenitus, Grafdigger's Cage or Tormod's Crypt. I think you need 3-4 pieces of graveyard hate.

I personally would also run 2x Back to Basics to punish greedy mana bases like Eldrazi, Lands, Mud, Bug etc. Just be aware that you play it when it does not hurt yourself too much.

I also think that you want 2-3 Dismembers in your sideboard against Tarmogoyf, Gurmag Angler, Stoneforge Mystic or any creature that might prevent you from getting damage through in the matchups, where your islandwalk is irrelevant. They are also very useful against Death & Taxes, which is one of Merfolk bad matchups.

You can also run Echoing Truth against decks that play annoying enchantments/artifacts like Meekstone, Ensnaring Bridge, Moat, Engineered Plague. It is also useful against tokens from Empty the Warrens, Monastery Mentor tokens, Young Pyromancer tokens and Entreat the Angels tokens.

Against Death & Taxes and Stoneblade decks, you could add 1x Manriki-Gusari to the sideboard to destroy their equipments. You can easily find it by copying their Stoneforge Mystic with your Phantasmal Image.

Many sideboards also run some additional counterspells and here there many available options.One of these options is Flusterstorm, which is good at winning counterwars and which is also good against combo decks like Storm and Reanimator.
You can also use counter spells like Negate, Swan Song or Spell Pierce. Personally I would not run 1 mana counterspell due to Chalice of the Void other the Flusterstorm, where the copies does not get countered by Chalice of the Void.

Other that these, you have some flexspots which can anything you need like: Pithing Needle which can name a ton stuff like Sensei's Divining Top, Wirewood Symbiote, Stoneforge Mystic, Grindstone, Sneak Attack etc.

Tidebinder Mage which is good against Deathrite Shaman, Tarmogoyf and elves.

Submerge which is a free bouncespell against decks with forest lands. It is sometimes even a removal spell, if you use it, when they use their fetchlands.

I hope this is helpful for you. :)

Please do share your list.

It's okay to blow up the comments section. I used to run On The Rag -Rakdos's 8RCK- but I feel mono black adds much more to the consistency. (this was before the days of K-Command) Blightning usually hits at the perfect time to empty out the last few cards in their hand.

I've ran just about every type of 8Rack variant there is at some point. Smallpox, Pack Rat, Bitterblossom, Nath of the Gilt-Leaf, Nezumi Shortfang Deathrite Shaman, Buried Ruin, Dakmor Salvage, Waste Not, Liliana's Caress, Maralen of the Mornsong.

It's a fun deck but people hate to play against it & games can really drag on.

Demppa on Dune Tokens (Highlander Version)

Hi! Nice start, I've been trying to get together a 4C tokens deck as well. I'm going to guess this was converted from an EDH deck because it has the hallmark of what usually happens: it's too slow. Your real meat is at 4-5 CMC and you have no ramp. I would either focus on the token strategy or go control-y with the superfriends theme. Aura Mutation and Artifact Mutation seem like traps: they can be very good but very often they're just dead cards. Artifact Mutation is slightly better though. Knotvine Mystic is a bad card and you're missing most of the good dorks from which I'd play at least Noble Hierarch and Deathrite Shaman in addition to Birds of Paradise. I would not play any 4+ CMC creatures that don't do anything when they come into play with maybe the exceptions of Brimaz, King of Oreskos and Hero of Bladehold. Purphoros, God of the Forge is a really good card in the deck just as an indestructible enchantment. Other than that you want to focus on small value creatures like Voice of Resurgence, Kitchen Finks and maybe even Sprouting Thrinax. Instead of the Doubling Season effects I'd not worry about the PW's too much and put in stuff like Goblin Bombardment, Gaea's Anthem and Glorious Anthem unless you're going to remove the token theme as a whole. From you're-in-the-colors-so-play-it cards you're missing at least Sylvan Library, Lightning Helix and Eladamri's Call - and Wasteland.
