Hey maxon! I'd certainly be up for doing that alter for you. It'd be $35, since it's both foil and alternate art. As for a list of cards I'm looking for at the moment:

Cavern of Souls
Wurmcoil Engine
Liquimetal Coating
Monastery Mentor
Any and all fetchlands
Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath (maybe)

Barring that, feel free to make suggestions. I am more than willing to take a look through your binder (Your one here on T/O is out of date). If all else fails, I do still take cash of course. :)

Yo MoGoose831, it looks like you have a pretty decent list. Here might be some inexpensive cards that can be considered as well!

Some cuts can be the 0 drop creature as they don't really help you when you have Kykar out. It might be a little bit more on the expensive side but some of the really helpful spells are ones that makes creatures as well such as Monastery Mentor and Saheeli, Sublime Artificer. Purphoros, God of the Forge is also a great one to rack up damage, you can also try out Crown of Flames it makes you infinite triggers if you have a token doubler effect. Bonus Round and Past in Flames are super good cards to use as well as Underworld Breach.

I have an old list if ya wanna take a look.

I've seen a lot of decks built around Feather, the Redeemed and I've been playing Boros in EDH for a long time, so hopefully I can give some helpful advice.

The first thing I noticed- you only have 6 ways to ramp in your deck. Feather decks tend to be very mana-hungry, wanting to always have mana to cast your spells and also have enough open to protect Feather. I find for a Feather deck mana-rocks that cost two mana are ideal. They let you cast a mana-rock turn two, play Feather turn three with one mana held up for a protection spell. You already have some signets, which is good. Other good ones are Talisman of Conviction, Marble Diamond, Star Compass, Coldsteel Heart, etc.

Another thing I noticed is that you're playing both Mirrorwing Dragon and Zada, Hedron Grinder but only have one creature that can generate tokens (that being Monastery Mentor) and no way to tutor said creature. If you're going to be running those bigger creatures that multiply your effects across all your creatures, you're going to want to run more token makers. Some decent ones include Young Pyromancer, Akroan Crusader, and Vanguard of Brimaz.

Finally, I advise upping your land count to 38. Like I said, Feather is a mana-hungry deck, so you want to consistently make your land drop every turn of the game. Having 38 lands as opposed to 36 helps with that.

Also though, how has Underworld Breach been performing in your deck? At first glance it doesn't look like the best card for a Feather deck since you're not exactly filling up your graveyard, but I can definitely be wrong.

There's a fun card I'd recommend for you though - Possibility Storm

Yeah it's chaotic but I find that it disrupts our opponents more than us most of the time.

With Feather, the Redeemed in play, you can chose which ability to resolve first since casting a spell would trigger both Feather and Storm. If the spell you cast is important to you, chose Feather to resolve 1st so that the card goes back to your hand. If you're in for some fun, go with Storm and it'll net you a new card from your library, which gets returned to your hand per Feather's ability still if the new card targets a creature you control.

Possibility Storm has great synergy with a lot of your creatures too. Guttersnipe, Balefire Liege, Electrostatic Field, Firebrand Archer, Thermo-Alchemist, Young Pyromancer and Monastery Mentor all trigger twice thanks to Possibility Storm!

These are some to think about but pricy: Monastery Mentor Grand Arbiter Augustin IV

These are two early game plays that would be STRONG: Primal Amulet  Flip Baral, Chief of Compliance

This is a really good second extra turn spell Nexus of Fate

Awesome deck! Have you considered Charmbreaker Devils for punching and reccursion? Zada, Hedron Grinder, Monastery Mentor, and Scroll of the Masters might be maybeboard worthy as well. Keep it up!

1-2-bye na Versus dia 18/2:

1-0 BG Depths (2-1): Primeira partida contra um jogador que estava na primeira vez na Versus, aprendendo a jogar com o deck dele. Na primeira partida ele me deu um turno a mais para ganhar o jogo com Sejiri Steppe, e nas outras duas partidas eu comprei todos os hates, não tive problemas (Wastelands e Karakas).

1-1 Jeskai Breach (1-2): Esse deck usa Underworld Breach para ciclar Lion's Eye Diamond, fazer mana para burro e ganhar com Brain Freeze. Scavenging Ooze não faz nada, porque o jogador tem prioridade para castar LED do cemitério e Brain Freeze é uma instantânea, ele pode castar uma segunda cópia caso eu tente exilar a primeira. Partida difícil, principalmente porque pós-board ele traz Monastery Mentor, e GW Maverick não tem como lidar com os tokens. Thalia, Prelate (para 0 no game 1, para 1 nos outros games), Silêncio Ensurdecedor e o que tiver de GY hate é a forma de ganhar o jogo.

G1 descobri o que o deck fazia. G2 comprei todos os hates, G3 perdi para Mentor. Esqueci de trazer StP para o jogo três depois de ver o Mentor, mas não sei se é o que eu quero se pretendo castar Prelate para 1. Pareceu um jogo justo, com a mão certa dá para ganhar.

1-2 Fractius (0-2): fui atropelado por Fractius, e nesse match senti falta de Batterskull: por duas vezes castei Stoneforge Mystic, por duas vezes não tive o que buscar. Jogo dois dei keep em uma mão com Phyrexian Revoker e 4 lands, Revoker tomou FoW, não tive chances. Keepar mãos especulativas contra fractius é um terror, porque você não tem muito tempo para comprar cartas.

Preciso pensar mais nos mulligans. Sair com a mão certa é meio caminho andado, e se eu não tenho a carta que eu quero, nem uma chance para buscá-la, é melhor devolver. Talvez valha a pena fazer uma lista de cartas importantes em cada match, só para passar pela cabeça uma vez e ter o que lembrar na hora do jogo.

TheAnnihilator on H: Devoted Druid Combo; W: ...

1 month ago

Hey all! I've recently decided to let go of my Druid combo stuff, since I prefer a more Pod-like approach as opposed to all-in combo, so I have the following available:

Playsets of:
Devoted Druid (Ultimate Masters)
Vizier of Remedies
Giver of Runes
Finale of Devastation
3 Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip
Eladamri's Call
Knight of Autumn
Birds of Paradise (2 M12, M11, Battlebond)

1 Silent Clearing
2 Walking Ballista
1 Ranger-Captain of Eos
3 Postmortem Lunge
1 Chord of Calling (M15, Russian)
1 Collector Ouphe
3 Veil of Summer
1 Thalia, Guardian of Thraben (Dark Ascension)
4 Restoration Angel (Avacyn Restored)
3 Wall of Omens
1 Spellskite

So yeah, I'm keeping the lands, Hierarchs, Eldritch Evolutions, and Pod stuff (you can't pry Voice of Resurgence or Kitchen Finks from my cold dead hands), but most everything else I have is fair game. If there's anything else I may not have listed, feel free to ask about it. I probably have it. :)

I'm looking for:
Sword of Feast and Famine
4 Ice-Fang Coatl
1 Spell Queller
2 Monastery Mentor (I have 1 Korean if anyone wants to swap their English one)
1x Cavern of Souls (preferable Innistrad, either printing is fine tho)
2x Selesnya Sanctuary
1x Hornet Queen
I will also binder dive, but my binder seems to show only the foil/promos?
