Island Discussion

Rayenous on Eldritch Moon Spoiler Thread

Discarding a Madness creature lets you cast the creature for it's madness cost as well as create a token...

T1: Mountain, Falkenrath Gorger
T2: Island, This
T3: Mountain, swing, discard and cast Insolent Neonate, and create a 3/2.

Seems like a nice aggressive line with multiple types of evasion as well as utility and synergy.

Seems pretty defining to me. Sure it's no Island but then what is? PLA is one of the MOST defining creatures of it's time IMO. When you compare it to cards like Lightning Bolt or Gideon, Champion of Justice or Siege Rhino then it doesn't seem as iconic but when you consider that control was a very big part of the META at the time and that this guy was the creature of choice for those decks more often then not then the notion of dismissing this creature as being unimportant is absurd.

Vasbear1 on Brago, King Eternal - EDH Combo Control

So it seems this deck is getting a lot attention so I will take a moment to give it fair justice.

It hasn't been updated sence Conspircy With that being said here are the updates

As for my opinion of Eerie Interlude: It's too slow, if you look at the majority of my blinking outlets they return the permanent to play right away. This system gives me the opertunity to resolve the effect of my choice before the effects of my opponents.

FLATSO99 on the best EDH deck ever (turn 1 win)

Daedalus19876 i am still working on the land base and as for winning turn one play Chrome Mox,Lotus Petal,and/or Mana Crypt if your not useing the artifact combo play Concordant Crossroads, and if nessacary play cards like Eladamri's Vineyard then once you have ramped up enough play Arbor Elf, and Utopia Sprawl on one of your Forests then play one of your tutors unless you have one in hand and search for Exsanguinate, Blue Sun's Zenith, Gelatinous Genesis, Hydra Broodmaster, or Death Cloud and finish them of the other combo is easyer to play just play Chrome Mox, Lotus Petal, and/or Mana Crypt and an Island and play one of your kill cards. and as for Gleemax i had no idea it was not commander legal and will remove it shortly thanks for your comment:)

Thanks TheMadRocketeer! There are actually 65 cards I think, I know its a little unusual, but most of my decks run 65 cards with 25 lands. It may be a little bit less consistent than 60 cards, but its not a huge difference and it helps me jam more value into the deck. If I were to reduce it to 60 I would probably drop Vault of the Archangel, Crib Swap, Narset Transcendent, Dragonlord's Prerogative, and... maybe a Remand or an Island?

As for the formatting, I just used the accordion block thing, and added a photo at the beginning of the title for each panel. If you play around with it a little I'm sure you can figure it out. If you have more questions, I'll happily answer to the best of my knowledge. Oh, and good luck with your build!

Postmortal_Pop on Yet another ridiculous combo.

5 days ago

Alright, this is going to get ridiculous, but basically it perma-nukes all land starting turn 3.

T1: Forest, bird of paradise

T2: Island, Pili-Pala

T3: Island, Grand Architect. Tap the bird for , combo Pili-Pala+Grand Architectfor infinite mana, play Mycosynth Lattice and March of the Machines to turn all lands into 0/0

Your opponents now have only nonland sources of mana if any while you grab have unlimited mana at your disposal. Simply play Darksteel Forge at your leisure to prevent a chance removal.
