multimedia on How to make Custom Lists?

4 days ago

Hey, there's two buttons in the comment area where you type in the comment at the top is an Unordered List button and on the right side of it is an Ordered List button.

You can also use HTML to make ordered or unordered lists:

Ordered List One Drops

  1. Birds of Paradise
  2. Llanowar Elves
  3. Elvish Mystic


Unordered List One Drops

Ordered lists start with a <ol> tag. Each list item is displayed in order with a number next to it called a bullet.

<li>[[Birds of Paradise]]</li>
<li>[[Llanowar Elves]]</li>
<li>[[Elvish Mystic]]</li>

To add an item to the list use the <li> tag.
Unordered lists start with a <ul> tag. These lists don't display numbers next to each list item instead the bullet is a dot.

<li>[[Birds of Paradise]]</li>
<li>[[Llanowar Elves]]</li>
<li>[[Elvish Mystic]]</li>

I would replace Oath of Ajani, Elvish Mystic, and Avacyn's Pilgrim though if you really want mana ramp I would add in Rishkar, Peema Renegade

If you want turn 1, go with Llanowar Elves, Elvish Mystic, and Fyndhorn Elves. I don't think the wolf is as good for any edh deck as the ramp.

Suns_Champion I spent some time to review the deck, and the ramp package (save one Kodama's Reach) is actually looking pretty decent. Here is my current ramp package featuring nine total cards: Restore, Rampant Growth, Chromatic Lantern, Collective Voyage, Tempt with Discovery, Sol Ring, Fellwar Stone, Commander's Sphere, and Zendikar Resurgent.

Unfortunately, Birds of Paradise is a no go with this build. Creatures have to meet one of three criterea to be in this deck. They have to Clone, steal cards (Gonti, Lord of Luxury), or buff (Thunderfoot Baloth). The only exception to this rule is Biovisionary. Remember I can also clone mana dorks and artifacts (or just steal them outright if I want), as my opponents' creatures are my creatures. I also keep a lot of red, as Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist needs to be out by turn three.

As for your other recommendations, Mirage Mirror definitely tops the list. I like the idea of that amount of flexibility on a card (not to mention the ability to hide it in the lands during a board wipe). I would like to add in the flash options, like Vedalken Orrery, but that will take cutting more cards. Mimic Vat feels like a trap card, as I don't want to exile too much from graveyards. I may proxy it and see how it plays before I splurge on it.

Faerie Artisans was in the initial build of the deck, and I HATED IT. I had no control over what I did, and if the player right before me played jank, I missed out on what I actually wanted. Nothing like having an Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger replaced by an Elvish Mystic.

I have made a LOT of changes since this build, but if this is the deck that I bring on the show, I'll update the deck-list then. Keep the suggestions coming!!

Hey there! Sweet deck! I have a few pieces of advice for you:

In any case, I hope this helps! Good luck!

KINGofORESKOS on Hydra ramp

Mono-colored ramp decks can always benefit from Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. Paradox Engine allows you to untap all you rampers whenever you cast a cheap spell, allowing you to cast ridiculously high amounts for X. Add 2 more cards, as the deck is 58 cards, as of now. Since ramp decks are aggressive (not focused on lifegain), replace Gift of Paradise with Utopia Sprawl. You're running 1-3 of many decent hydras when you should be running 3-4 of the best ones. I would remove Bristling Hydra and Mistcutter Hydra (move to sideboard). In terms of ramp, replace Channeler Initiate with Elvish Archdruid, Sylvan Caryatid with Arbor Elf (works with Utopia Sprawl), Druid of the Cowl and Naga Vitalist with Elvish Mystic. I would consider adding Genesis Hydra and Genesis Wave. Nice deck, keep up the good work, and I hope my suggestions help. Change the format to Modern and add ramp as a hub as well as mono-green.

Tyrant-Thanatos on Total War and Not Attacking

1 week ago

It's also worth noting (especially if you're going up against this card) that a lot of tap abilities are instant speed and with no other cost. So if I have a tapped Elvish Mystic, and I enter the combat phase and attack with something, triggering Total War, and my opponent responds by untapping my elf, I can just tap it again before Total War resolves. Thus, in a lot of cases, untapping an attacker's tapped creatures in response to Total War won't actually net you the destruction you're looking for, though it certainly could be amazing in the right situation. Any sort of sorc-speed restricted tap effects, stuff that costs mana, etc.

In the right circumstance, you could force an opponent to choose between losing their Royal Assassin, or using it to kill their own attacker.

Uhhh... hate to break it to you, fella, but the only Standard-legal cards in here are Carnage Tyrant and the basic lands. Llanowar Elves will be available as a replacement for Elvish Mystic when Dominaria comes out, though.
