Creature — Lhurgoyf

Tarmogoyf's power is equal to the number of card types among cards in all graveyards and its toughness is equal to that number plus 1. (The card types are artifact, creature, enchantment, instant, land, phenomenon, plane, planeswalker, scheme, sorcery, tribal, and vanguard.)

Oh other side note on black, the best creature in MtG that isn't named Tarmogoyf is Dark Confidant , aka "Bob", named for an infamous cheater he was designed by and named after. The guy embodied Black perfectly. This card is seen in vamps sometimes, with Asylum Visitor being the 5th Bob, also used in Jund at times.

Dreadbore , Rakdos Charm , Kaya's Guile , Falkenrath Gorger Skymarcher Aspirant , Yawgmoth, Thran Physician , Slaughter Pact , Murderous Cut , Lightning Helix , Liliana's Triumph , and newly legal Unearth . Just random other Mardu cards. Mardu = Red/Black/White, Rakdos = Red/Black.

Rancor , Llanowar Augur to give trample to Ghoultree, plus augur would boost Pelt Collector. I've seen Commune with the Gods boost a Tarmogoyf at modern, maybe it could power the Tree out too

Yes want to keep the cost down, no Liliana or Tarmogoyf unfortunately. Tried out Nyxathid and sometimes works well but not consistent so thanks for the suggestions. Had been looking at Gurmag Angler before so will try it out.

Desecration Demon is the weakest card, but looking for another threat.

icehit6 on Selling my long time collection

3 weeks ago

Hi all,

I have been an active member on this website for years, and as well have been a fairly active player up until about a year and a half ago.

I've amassed a collection of decks and some miscellaneous cards for the past 5 years (I started playing in March of 2015). It's sad to say, but I have to let me collection go.

The collection basically consists of six competitive decks, four modern, and two legacy, and as well a small binder of extras I have had laying around from the years of FNM's and release days I have attended.

Essentially my collection consists of:

Modern G/W Elves

Esper Death Shadows

UR Gifts Ungiven Storm

UG Infect

BG Dark Depths

And UB Instant Reanimator

Some cards that I have sitting in my binder, just to give an idea of the quality of the collection, and the legitimacy, are:

Arid Mesa (Zen) Verdant Catacombs (Zen) Scalding Tarn (Zen) Misty Rainforest (Zen) Marsh Flats (Zen) 4x Blood Moon Foil Zendikar Island, Plains, and Swamp 4x Tarmogoyf Modern Masters 4x FNM Promo Gitaxian Probe

Among other goodies.

The decks I am not willing to part out, so please do not ask. If you are interested you can DM me and I can give you the direct decklist WITH pictures.

If you are interested in what is in the binder, I can send a full list with pictures of everything in the binder. I am trying to keep this post short, however.

I was hoping to post on here first to get dedicated players, instead of going to get a large portion of the value cut out at a card shop, or going on offer up.

If anyone is interested please do not be a stranger. I am selling because I do not currently play, and probably will not for a very long time due to working two jobs and friends moving across the country.

I am also selling to attempt to fund a new car.

Thanks for understanding, and I hope to hear from some of you.

SynergyBuild, yes, they still can. The current sets allow for that to happen. Not really a legacy staple, but Goblin Ringleader just got reprinted in core set 2020. Force of will got 2 extra printings (not that it helped, since it was a mythic both times). Tarmogoyf is lower now than it has been in the past decade.

I think Food Chain is a perfectly good card to reprint in a core set. As long as something like Squee, the Immortal is not in Standard, Food Chain is perfectly safe.

Force of Will - an alliance card. So, in order to get FOW in this type of product, you need Alliances Remastered. What are the cards people expect from there besides FOW. The next three cards in Alliances are Helm of Obedience , Thawing Glaciers and Lake of the Dead , Kjeldoran Outpost . All three are Reserved list, so a Paper Remastered set will not include them.

In fact, if you exclude FOW and all Reserved list cards, the most expensive card is Lim-Dul's Vault , which is a whooping 7 dollars. Hardly the pack mover. And it was reprinted in Commander 2013. Which means that they can do it again.

Overall, there is no need to remaster sets for a few cards than to simply reprint in existing products.

Padapos on Sultai Deprive

Was a long time Jund player until Jace was unbanned. I've been playing the Sultai archetype ever since. Blue basically replaces the weaknesses Jund always had (constant top deck mode and paying life for cards). Jace and Serum Visions always keep you drawing the right half of your deck. With fatal push red doesn't need to be splashed anymore.

Ice-Fang Coatl is an unplayable magic card until snow dual lands are printed. Ice-Fang Coatl fights for the 2 drop slot vs Tarmogoyf , Snapcaster Mage and Scavenging Ooze which are all far better creatures.

Deprive has been working wonders. The discard spells cover the early game where the tempo loss of a land hurts the most. Deprive is sometimes cast on turns 2-3 if absolutely necessary but is usually cast on turns 4-6+ where pciking up a tapped land means nothing and is even an upside coupled with Fatal Push .

Sort of just looks like you don’t have Thoughtseize or the fourth Tarmogoyf , Budget is a big misnomer for a $1500 deck

I think you're trying to do too much with the deck. You are half Hollow One , half Loam . I think you should double down on one of them. Honestly, Tarmogoyf seems almost completely irrelevant here as well. I understand the tribal/instant reason for Tarfire , but Lightning Bolt is essentially strictly better.

What is the reason for Tectonic Reformation in the sideboard? What do you bring that in against?
