Gattison on Magic Idol (aka So You ...

2 days ago

So, I can be a goofy bastard sometimes. I like witty and "random" humor, but sometimes it just gets out of hand...

As proof, here are several parody songs I wrote about The Game of Cardboard Crack. Most of them are old-school hip-hop. Hope that's okay.

  1. "Bolzter-N-The-Hood," by Weezy-G, theme song for Bolster a Corpsejack Menace to Society...

    Drew 7 quick, at about noon
    Gotta play a Corpsejack Menace or two
    Cast Hardened Scales before the play begins
    Then get ready for the bitchin' from my friends
    Simic Initiate, turn two, trigger-time
    Cuz nerds at the path can't Interpret the Signs
    Abzan Falconer, a whole playset
    And some Charms and Battle Priests to fill out the rest
    Bailed out some turns, bolstered my weapon
    Just as I thought target fool kept steppin'
    Jumped on T4, hit the juice on T5
    I got counters front back, and side to side
    Then I played an MP3 (3)
    While buyin' new shit from WotC
    It was Bolster Bolster and the Abzan Menace
    Then I made my own deck and it looks somethin' like this
    Feat of Resistance beats your 6/4
    Mutant's Prey bitches, Burst of Strength hoes
    Mulligan or draw, it's all the same scoop
    Knuckleheads out there cold playin' to first-to-two
    An opponent rolls up, who can it be
    A fresh, bling deck worth a whole pound of weed
    He came to the game table and started to say
    It's all about makin' them R.T.F.C.
    [chorus]Cuz nerds in Modern are always hard
    You come talkin' that trash, we'll pull your card
    Knowin' nuttin' in life, but to win legit
    Don't quote me boy, I ain't win shit[/chorus]
    That's E. is the spot where I cast my stack
    My man E is on that cardboard crack
    My man used to be a friend of mine
    Till I caught him in my 'yard tryina' steal my Hydra
    Cast Treasured Find after I sided it in
    He got 2-for-1ed when he did it again
    Little did he know I got the mana to play
    Planeswalker dead, Top 8, Good Game
    [chorus]Cuz nerds in Modern are always hard
    Come talkin' that trash, we'll mill your card
    Knowin' nuttin' in life but to win legit
    Don't quote me boy, I ain't win shit[/chorus]
    Bored as hell and I wanna cast spells
    So I went to a spot where other nerds dwell
    The kids out there jockin' Deathmist Raptor
    You're lucky I ain't playsettin' Siege Rhino, ya bastids...
    My life hits 40 and I start thinkin'
    I got 8 8/8s, your battlefield's shrinkin'
    Tap to Outlast, Phalanx Leader gets cast
    Before I pass, Jack Forcefully Adapts
    Ya go into ya bag, and ya get out ya pad
    Thinkin' you would go 2-and-0, and go online and brag
    You write it all down like you can't believe
    You about to R-A-G-E-to-the-Q-U-I-T
    You go, "no attack, pass," wouldn't ya know
    Jack icey like a pimp, attack you bro'
    Got the judge pumped up, like he's booin' for you
    Bioshift Scute Mob, give him a +1 counter, too[chorus]Cuz the nerds in Modern are always hard
    You come talkin' that trash, we'll discard your card
    Knowin' nuttin' in life but to win legit
    Don't quote me boy, I ain't win shit[/chorus]
    I'm castin' hard like I'm playin' control
    Strive for Solidarity of Heroes
    I looked at my opponent and he said, "Oh, brother"
    He countered my hydra, but I cast another
    Flyin' in ya' face, I spin-down ya' die
    Green, black, white, Temples of Scry
    Did I forget to mention Primordial Hydra?
    Gotta mention all my cards before I finish my rhyme
    Faces get beat for resistin' my deck
    Dromoka's Command sac's your enchantment
    My deck is broken, attackin' me is a crime
    Sure, 3-out-of-5, if you got the time
    [chorus]Cuz the nerds in Modern are always hard
    Come talkin' that trash, we'll play your card
    Knowin' nuttin' in life but to win legit
    Don't quote me boy, I ain't win shit[/chorus]
    My opponents go to block, but they got no 'field
    Plus I got protection from your Repeal
    Two corpsejacks, and your response?
    Mill my deck? I'll 'board in Varolz
    Be a good sport, said the judge
    Don't mainboard Abzan Advantage
    Use a calculator to confirm the damage
    And a 100/100 is more than most can manage
    I don't use fetches, I do it wit' painlands
    I could do wit' basic Forests, Swamps and Plains, man
    No Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit yet
    But get ready to mainboard that Murder
    [chorus]Cuz the nerds in Modern are always hard
    Come talkin' that trash, we'll counter your card
    Knowin' nuttin' in life but to win legit
    Don't play Legacy, it's competitive as shit[/chorus]
  2. "Pump Around," by Evercast, theme song of eyes2sky's Pimpin' Up Wall of Zombie limbs!!!

    Life is up, counter in
    Let me begin
    I came to win
    Attack me, that's a sin
    Drown in dice when I sack up
    Spike, ya better back up
    Try to play the role and Suture Priest will act up
    Life up, Wall up
    Touch of Moonglove up
    If you got removal then, punk you better use it
    Wall of Limbs, Nyx-Fleece Ram
    My Dying Wish
    Is Murder Investigations
    Block it, pump it
    Sac it anyway
    And I deal more damage than nerds at ya Local Gaming Shop
    Sho nuff, I got lots of Exquisite Bonds
    Plus Vampire Nighthawks
    [chorus] I came to get counters, I came to get counters
    So get out your dice and help me count 'em
    Dump 'em out, dump 'em out, dump 'em out
    Dump 'em out, pump up, and win now
    Pump, pump, pump (only Wall of Limbs) (3x)
    Pump up, pump up, and win now [/chorus]
    I'll cut your deck like Mike Holmes' show
    If Jimmy steps up, infinite combo
    Exquisite Blood and Sanguine Bond
    And I got more triggers than North Korea got bombs
    Just like Prodigal Sorcerer I've returned
    Got no blue or red spells, still you'll get burned
    'Cause I got life and you ain't got none
    If you come to battle bring Protection
    But if you do you're a fool, 'cause I deal to the face
    Try to go 50 with me, you come in last place
    I got the Wall, come get your Limbs
    'Cause when I play Magic, I play like Tims
    [chorus] I came to get counters, I came to get counters
    So get out your dice and help me count 'em
    Dump 'em out, dump 'em out, dump 'em out
    Dump 'em out, pump up, and win now
    Pump, pump, pump (only Wall of Limbs) (3x)
    Pump up, pump up, and win now [/chorus]
    I Consume Spirits, and Doom Blade a lot
    I never Diabolic Tutor 'cause I get what I want
    Ya better get a Tournament player
    Like Andrew Cuneo
    To try and play me out like as if my name were Yu-Gi-Oh
    But I ain't goin' out like no kid-game
    Get used to one style and I might have to make
    The change up up and around, new strategies now
    Take all your life and ya' wake up in your own graveyard
    Lingering Souls, Lingering Souls
    I'm spittin' out 1/1 Spirits and 1/1 Soldiers too bro
    [chorus] But I came to get counters, I came to get counters
    So get out your dice and help me count 'em
    Help me count, help me count, help me count
    Help me count my counters up now
    Pump, pump, pump (only Wall of Limbs) (3x)
    Pump up, pump up, and win now [/chorus]

If I was to release an album, I would call it Magic: The Gangstering... Just sayin.'

illumfolly on Call Forth the Death Star

Could maybe try to work in Skirge Familiar and Elixir of Immortality -- with Angel's Grace, you can potentially get infinite storm, or just keep playing your deck forever (assuming you can filter the black mana somehow -- Blood Celebrant, Gemstone Array) -- might also want Sickening Dreams for both clearing hatebears and killing everyone.

Working these in enable storm for the most part, and could be a handy backup if someone exiles Aetherflux Reservoir (like with Swamp --> Dark Ritual --> Sadistic Sacrament)

Also removed another Swamp and put in Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth as it is a natural inclusion.

Now that I look at your lands, you have some things that could be changed. First, filter lands like Sunken Ruins and Twilight Mire are good in UB and GB decks respectively. Second, I would play more basic Swamp, you need these to combat blood moon and it helps with life loss early in the game when you fetch then immediately thoughtseize. Finally, Oboro, Palace in the Clouds and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth are good lands if you choose to play either liliana or Cryptic Command

@Pheardemons - Oboro, Palace in the Clouds and Minamo, School at Water's Edge are nice, and they can certainly replace two Islands. I just don't own any and they are individually expensive and don't have much of a payoff in return. So I've just never bought/added them.

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth helps with casting Dismember, it also lets me destroy any one of their lands as a Swamp with Sundering Titan so I get an extra land removal. And lastly, it opens up different sideboard options. Though I'm not using anything but Dismember right now, I've used various black tricks in the sideboard at different times.

It's been a good year since I've played MTG or updated this deck, so it might not be completely compatible with the current meta. It is however very good at adapting to differing metas, which is why I like this deck. I can pick it up at almost any point and do well against most Modern metas.

Jobuno on Mono-Black-Sacrifice Deck

1 week ago

Hello all. After thorough research I have made my mono-black-sacrifice deck. I know there are tons of mono-black-budget deck guides, but I don't feel like they're getting me anywhere.

I have been playing with the deck a couple of times now, and I feel like I have two main problems:

I dont draw enough cards, mainly lands.There is not enough consistency/synergy. Often I dont have all creatures/spells on my hand to get a nice combo going.

I hope you guys can help me out. I am not specifically looking for budget cards, but I would prefer it.

Deck is as follows:

Creatures

Sorcery

Instant

Lands

I have a lot of creatures. Maybe too many. Or many that does the same thing. I would like to streamline my deck. At the moment I only play casual with my friends, so we play no real format for now.

Thanks a lot in advance :)

Sorry for the post spam, I keep on having ideas after submitting my previous posts. Sinister Concoction seems great! Gets you the difficult half (enchantment and then any other type of your choice) of the way to delirium for .

Infact if you played a Swamp and Sinister Concoction on turn 1, Evolving Wilds on turn 2 sacrificing the Evolving Wilds and Sinister Concoction discarding an artifact creature (Wild-Field Scarecrow) you get delirium on turn 2! Admittedly that's a lot of work compared to getting lucky off a Grapple with the Past or Vessel of Nascency but redundancy is good and you do get to kill something this way!

Things to think about if you want... All in all a nice midrange creature based delirium deck with lots of low cost cards that are relevant even into the late game. Just lacking abit of quick removal if you ask me.
