Taclegod on Grix Is The Best

is it worth to play Goblin Dark-Dwellers without Ancestral Vision? the payof of recasting Kolaghan's Command is huge, but Snapcaster Mage and Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip can do the same without beeing a 5 drop that won't do anything in some matchups. Don't get me wrong, I also play GDD, but with Ancestral Vision and my meta has many Jund decks and is not that fast.

legendofa on trying to move past casual

1 day ago

I've been working on this deck for a while, and it plays pretty well in casual. I'm trying to take it to the next level.

Right now, the biggest problems are a lack of ways to avoid noncombat life loss and a lack of progression: it's too reactive, and doesn't really try to work toward any goal. The win conditions right now are the planeswalkers and Sphinx's Tutelage.

One interaction I particularly like in it is Black Sun's Zenith + Sudden Spoiling , which can take out virtually every creature and any number of creatures.

I'm trying to keep it as low-creature as possible, to avoid it becoming another pile of Bob the Snappy Goyf, but I'm willing to consider some. A few of the creatures I've been thinking about are Eternal Witness (recursion), Snapcaster Mage (recursion, but out of my current price range), Acidic Slime (removal) and Reaper of the Wilds (good body, difficult to get rid of, scry). I'm not even looking at Tarmogoyf right now; the deck doesn't have any way to protect it, and I'm not paying $100+ for eight square inches of Terminate bait.

I also know is the dominant Fog color, but adding it in would mean another huge investment for my mana base.

Please let me know of any any recommendations--thanks!

xGhostx on Rise of The Gearhulks

I would need to go then :P I am only running the 1of Noxious Gearhulk to be hit of a Saheeli Rai or Nahiri, the Harbinger Ults, otherwise no sources at all :)

Torrential Gearhulk is not great here due to the lack of Instants. Really, I think Torrential Gearhulk is lackluster in general for that fact. Hes not even in the same ranks as Snapcaster Mage being limited to only Instants.

Hey Nubby,

I've read some of your comments, looked through quite a few of your decks and I would like to have your advice for my esper mill deck (tztrz).

I will change 3x Extirpate for 3x Surgical Extraction. Glimpse the Unthinkable, Snapcaster Mage and generally all cards above 30$+ are out of my budget atm.

I am looking forward for your pick on this. I am quite new to M:TG and allways interested in improving.

The more tutors, the more consistently you'll be able to find your combo pieces. Rune-Scarred Demon, Liliana Vess, Increasing Ambition, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, along with what you've mentioned, will help you find what you need.

I'd play lots of counter magic to protect your combo pieces, too. Venser, Shaper Savant, Arcane Denial, Overwhelming Denial, etc. are all good choices. Snapcaster Mage and Torrential Gearhulk for added value.

2austin5 on Help valuing fair price for ...

Hey all! I am trying to offload the majority of my higher value cards as I haven't played consistently for about a year and a half. I am in grad school and figured hey, it would be kind of nice to own a car and have some money to throw at it. I want to get a general idea from the community as to what a fair price would be. Also, at that point, would I be better off selling it here or should I move to eBay for it? Thank you all for any help you can provide! Here is the list:

1x Snapcaster Mage

2x Ancestral Vision (2x MP) (Time spiral)

2x Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger

The deck is coming out nicely, although it's at sorcery speed, I adore Void Snare, so much better than Vapor Snag.

Card draw? Bounce Wall of Omens.

Recursion? Bounce wall Snapcaster Mage

Disruption? Bounce any opposing creature  Flip

GoldGhost012 on W: U/R Standard /// LTS: ...

3 days ago

Looking for cards for Standard U/R Burn. Stuff like Collective Defiance, Fevered Visions, Spirebluff Canal, and Wandering Fumarole. I added the Kaladesh cards I got from the pre-release; highlights are Saheeli Rai, Concealed Courtyard, and Noxious Gearhulk. Here's my binder.

I also have a foil Snapcaster Mage I'm looking to sell. I'd like to get about $120 for it, preferably through Paypal. I'll cover shipping and tracking, and pictures will be available upon request.

If you're interested in anything, please let me know!
