jrogers16 on Grixis Slivers

1 day ago

Love this deck, I play a similar sliver Grixis Deck. My deck list is...

Main Deck:4x Frenetic Sliver2x Krark's Thumb1x Thoughtseize4x Counterspell4x Crypt Sliver3x Bonesplitter Sliver2x Diffusion Sliver3x Shadow Sliver3x Galerider Sliver1x Syphon Sliver2x Homing Sliver2x Stitch in Time3x Two-Headed Sliver2x Telekinetic Sliver

4x Crumbling Necropolis3x Sliver Hive1x Cavern of Souls1x Mutavault1x Swamp5x Mountain9x Island

Sideboard:1x Tormod's Crypt2x Crawlspace2x Swamp1x Syphon Sliver2x Pyroclasm3x Leeching Sliver2x Terminate2x Mnemonic Sliver

This deck uses frenetic sliver to make your creatures die %50 of the time. It also uses diffusion sliver to keep removal off the board, while crypt slivers protect your other slivers. Galerider helps slowly get damage through, while Bonesplitter sliver helps finish the game with lots of damage! Recommend using some of these cards in your deck, but it's great already!!

Great points, Slycne. In both matches I brought in 2x Fleecemane Lion from the side for 8 total aggressive 2 drops (incl. Rakshasa Deathdealer) and that helped a lot. Elspeth, Sun's Champion came out, always. I unfortunately didn't draw into any of my sided Bile Blight or Drown in Sorrow to help with dorks in either of the FIVE!!! matches. :(

Although adding the most powerful card in Magic, Island, is tempting, I think I'm going to see what happens with a few Stain the Mind thrown in the side.

Absinthman on Riddle Challenge - Death Out ...

Hi guys, I had a pretty interesting game on MTGO the other day, which made me think that it could make an interesting challenge here on TappedOut. You'll find it just below this article. Also, feel free to post your own stories like this one. It doesn't matter whether you were the unsuspecting victim of such misfortune, or the architect of someone else's tragic demise. The only thing that matters is that the losing party never saw it coming.

Now here's my story

It happened recently in Swiss Legacy Cube on MTGO. I was playing a Blue/Black control and my opponent was monowhite. I had a land heavy draw, so I wasn't doing much but neither was my opponent. That is until turn 5, when he played Cloudgoat Ranger. With my empty board, that smelled like trouble. I played my Man-o'-War and bounced his Cloudgoat Ranger. "Wait, what!? Are you nuts!? He's just going to recast it and get double the tokens, you stupid!!" - that's what anyone could think of me right now, but wait. This was actually all part of my cleverly designed plan. As expected, he redeployed his Ranger, getting another set of tokens, while I was still waiting, grinning and thinking to myself: "soon, very soon". But the moment was not ripe yet. Something was telling me that this was going to get even better. Some of you may already have cought the drift.
On his next turn, as expected, he attacked with the Ranger and tapped all Kithkins for a total of 7 flying damage to my face. Then he tapped out and played the best (or worst - depending on your perspective) card ever - Elspeth, Sun's Champion. He made 3 soldier tokens and passed the turn.

Now, let's get to the challenge: I'm at 13 life and I have 3x Island, 2x Swamp, Underground River and Underground Sea (all untapped), and a lowly untapped Man-o'-War. My opponent is sitting on a healthy 20 life, has no untapped lands, tapped Cloudgoat Ranger, Elspeth, Sun's Champion and a total of 9 1/1 tokens (3 of which are untapped). It's my pre-combat main phase and I play a single card. My opponent says "lol" and concedes because he knows he's dead. Obvious question is obvious: What was that Magic card that so suddenly and unexpectedly caused that poor soul's untimely departure? I'm looking forward to hear your thoughts.

Yeah. Since the deck is a hidden zone, you must play cheatyface from outside the game. Therefore, 4 Ashnod's Coupon, 4 R&D's Secret Lair so you don't have to pay for the drink, and 52 Island. Play all the cheatyface from outside the game. You could also use Memnite and Ornithopter instead of islands, as you dont need mana to play cheatyface

Poprox on Scry'd to death

This deck looks great except for one thing. you need more Temple of Epiphany. Lose a Mountain and an Island to throw in another temple. Everything in this deck focuses around scry so u should make the lands work it to. Dont worry about it enetering tapped. Your deck has a nice mana curve.

You might want a singleton Island somewhere in the 75 just so you can hardcast if they get stuck in your hand.

I also think cutting 1x Mountain and 1x Island and adding 2 more Temple of Epiphany would be a good idea.

You should probably add a Island. Otherwise it's alright.
