Platinum Emperion Discussion

you should really look into nonbasic lands. i'm guessin you're new to the game, so it might not be a good idea to dive straight into modern. modern is a format where an Inkmoth Nexus can deal 10 infect damage turn 3, or someone can cast Through the Breach and put an Emrakul, the Aeons Torn into play turn 4. i've played against people who cast Empty the Warrens on turn 2 for 10 goblin tokens. players can Madcap Experiment into Platinum Emperion and won't take damage from the Madcap Experiment, or cast Karn Liberated turn 3 and then Ugin, the Spirit Dragon turn 4.

I'll comment on the Blue tron eldrazi deck. As for here, Platinum Emperion has been pretty amazing. I will admit to VERY rare occasions where a turn three Platinum Angel has saved the game, but it wasn't enough to truly consider. The 8th mana can be a little slower, but the overall advantage in the meta at the moment is definitely worth it. I've talked to others who have not liked it because it was 8 mana, so I'd say playtest to see how you like it. There were too many games where people simply got my life total below 0 then just waited to draw an answer.

I'll playtest Field of Ruin, still skeptical, but always willing to improve.

Pheardemons Sorry was a work, didn't get to look all the way through all your tags in the last post.

I like your mix up. You're right, its a more aggro version of mine. Makes me want to run an Mono Blue Eldrazi Tron Deck.

As for the Field of Ruin, I love it. In my opinion it's stronger than Ghost Quarter and Tectonic Edge because it doesn't give them any land advantage. I think most folks play only 1 but I like having 2 over a 9th Island since I can just tutor for an Island with it and its the only card I have that can deal directly with opposing man lands.

I'd been toying with the idea of the Platinum Emperion how are you liking it in the place of Platinum Angel?

shadow63: I think it's more likely Platinum Emperion

If you can freeze your life-total or prevent yourself from losing somehow (Platinum Angel? Platinum Emperion?), Ad Nauseam or Spoils of the Vault would be sweet here.

If you want to speed up the deck, consider UR The Locust God with Maniac + The Locust God + Kindred Discovery naming Insects on the battlefield + a draw spell in-hand.

If you want to stay in these colors, perhaps consider a token-producing synergy like more zombies + Undead Alchemist + Rooftop Storm + Liliana, the Last Hope + Kindred Discovery naming zombies.

Have fun playing!

There are a ton of fun cards and synergies here - it's like Affinity's big sibling.

My primary concern is speed. I think this would be a super fun deck to play in a playgroup or meta full of brews, but at an FNM, I think you might feel a step behind some other decks.

Imagine if you melded this with an Affinity list and played several 0- and 1-drop artifact creatures like Memnite, Ornithoper, and Signal Pest.

Then add in several Chief Engineer and, say, a few Trinket Mage and Trophy Mage cards.

Then add in Welding Jar and Cranial Plating.

Then add in, maybe, a Platinum Angel, a Platinum Emprion, and any 2-4 1-ofs from your favorite bombs up above (definitely include a Colossus).

You might even have room for some Thoughtcast and removal like Fatal Push.

I'd also rebalance your land-base towards cards that come in un-tapped so you can have a speedy start. Glimmervoid, Mox Opal, and Inkmoth Nexus are all helpful, but also big investments to trade towards or buy.

A possible FNM list (though you could go further toward Affinity if you wanted):

Your sideboard could include more removal or things that protect you like Witchbane Orb or Orbs of Warding.

I'd play a deck like this at FNM to give yourself early blockers that are a threat with Plating until you can cast bigger creatures that might close the game. I'd go for broke casting your big monsters in a more casual setting. You can work towards quicklands, checklands, fetches, and shocks through trades and whatnot to develop the land-base further, but speed is good.

I hope some of those suggestions help! There are a lot of Affinity players out there who could give better advice :)

Happy brewing!

FNM 2017 01 12: 2/2

Round 1 Grixis Madcap 2-0

Game 1: Won when I ripped a turn 4 Kolaghan's Command to remove the Platinum Emperion they just Madcap Experimented for.

Game 2: Won with it coming down to an Inquisition of Kozilek from the opponent. The only thing in my hand was a land and a Snapcaster Mage in hand with a lone Stubborn Denial in the graveyard. Played the Snapcaster Mage and targeted the Stubborn Denial with a Gurmag Angler in play.

Round 2 5 Color Shadow 1-2

Game 1: Won with a decent opening hand.

Game 2: Lost due to flooding.

Game 3: Lost due to flooding.

Round 3 Storm 2-1

Game 1: Lost draw 9 lands during the game. No creatures.

Game 2: Won with a quick Tasigur.

Game 3: Opening hand was 2 Snapcaster Mage 1 Inquisition of Kozilek 1 Thoughtseize and drew into 2 more Inquisition of Kozileks. I didn't draw into any creatures and despite having two Gifts Ungiven and a Blood Moon cast on me Tasigur, the Golden Fang and Gurmag Angler eventually got me there.

Round 3 Mirror Match 0-2

Game 1: Lost the close game that came down to top deck. Eventually a timely Fatal Push and a Death's Shadow won him the game.

Game 2: Lost due to kepping a one land hand and a Thoughtscour. Inquisition of Kozilek pulled the Thoughtscour from my hand and I didn't draw another land for the next three turns.

I'm updating the sideboard.

+2 Liliana of the Veil

+1 Illness in the Ranks

+1 Nihil Spellbomb

-1 Liliana, the Last Hope

-1 Deprive

-1 Ceremonious Rejection

Rwelker777 I want to use Bazaar Trader as a way of trading my Lose-Conditions to other players; if there are other good targets for that you could think of please let me know. And thank you for the suggestions, but Platinum Emperion shuts down some of my win conditions of switching my life total with other players, and I'm not exactly sure why Bloodgift Demon isn't in the deck. In shirt, I haven't really looked at this deck in a long time but I'm glad you enjoyed it. Please make whatever changes you'd like to suit your playgroup.
