Well, 2 Tibalt, Rakish Instigator against lifegain (Vampires) , 2 Ashiok, Dream Render against scapeshift would be good Sideboard options, as well as Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord , To Ping Opponents and Reanimation Have Fun!

KeoneMakai Wow nice! Haven't had the chance to try it out at an FNM yet but I'm amazed it went that well for you. Thanks for bringing it out for a spin!

If you do manage to whip up a sideboard do let me know. I am hilariously bad at those. So far I've only thought about adding Tibalt, Rakish Instigator for anti lifegain shenanigans, and possibly Flame Sweep for anti tokens/weenies (of course that'd kill all my shit as well so who knows). Fry would be good as well, I think? Have I mentioned I'm bad at side boards?

Good morning, guys. Sorry, I'm deployed again (active duty army gets ya good), so my responses are very delayed. I'll work on keeping up with you.

SP3CTR3_chelts, I'll have to look into that card. It's a bit more specific as it only targets blue instant spells, so I'd have to test it if drawing is enough to keep this card. Or maybe as a sideboard.

budlaorf I agree about Scampering Scorcher , I think as an etb creature card, it would benefit the deck. I'm just not sure what to pull out for it atm. Chandra is a bit tougher to keep, cause planeswalkers don't keep as well. I was debating a while to add Tibalt, Rakish Instigator , because it stops a strong opponent strategy, and makes tokens...

(CAUTION: This topic has qualities for multiple forums at the same time; so if anyone can even find one that's the most relevant, let me know, or for beyond eternity, hold your peace.)

(This is also going to be very personal; as it's also about the numerous references also.)



I believe I really must give back to you all; just like I feel like a selfish Grixisite; even after all this is set in stone.

I feel I recent memory I've been pushing so many; their IRL ideas seem to be not only the last thing in mind; but also the first. I just don't realize the latter until it's too late. So? I will proceed to try & respond in the most venerable way I can; & still fail. Might as well start with...

@DrkNinja: I guess I could start w/ you; given how you hated both Rowan Kenrith & Will Kenrith all the same. And yet, w/ Throne of Eldraine just announced, & the fact I'm still keeping my Rowan Kenrith in actually now has a great reason why. Previously when you were trying to help me out; I seemed misguided towards my own vision for such a creation. I apologize for driving you away from this. Since the Kenrith Twins (I guess?) resided in Eldraine, It's VERY MUCH most likely they will make a return; that & WotC has declared war on Weirdcards; the creators of Oathbreaker. Brawl vs Oathbreaker. All bets are forbidden. But, maybe... think about WAR for abit. Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded is still the Worst Walker Ever; but by the set's release, Tibalt, Rakish Instigator ; mere Uncommon, is easily the better of the two; although is slight; Tibalt redeemed himself from eternal hate from fans; even when Chandra fought him in the IDW comics, & LOST. Nobody thought of this: but maybe it was a sign that the worst can get better; & did! But what about Rowan? You hated her w/ your soul even, & there is still a possibility she may actually get better; 2 in fact! (Rowan is hinted to have her own Planeswalker Deck.) Oh, & yes, I'm still updating my Superfriends (Is it right to call it Avengers as an alt. Deckname Type? the MCU is awesome in my mind.) Deck, though no matter what happens in that case, I'll replace the original, w/ a new iteration of both Kenrith Twins. Sorry, but I forbid any objections to either. Also, Remember Battlebond? One of my favorite set of recent memory? Well, what if there are Legends w/ Partner that span all 10 2 colors, not counting the ones with creature type already mentioned in the first Battlebond, in this sequel, what 10 pairings as Dual Colors would each represent an opposing creature type for each Mana Color? Basically, what this means, for example is the Knights & Dragons can't be used a second time; Same for Human & Illusion (Pir most likely is & they don't approve of impurities; Toothy is an Illusion; so it easily fits the bill.) Well, Last note: I'm literally perceiving myself as a Hive Mind that is collecting minds knowing of Throne of Eldraine, & forging them of Hype. I just pray the hype doesn't convert to Sodium Chloride (See? You can say a gaming term by only mentioning it's Scientific Term!)

cdkime: Once again, Esper & the mastery of Etherium, against Grixis & the mastery of various versions of Egotistical Esoterics w/ a cruel mind. (Yes. I know what Esoteric defines as; even beatmania IIDX long ago had something like this in the form of Ganymede.) when I first started here, I saw you as one of my biggest enemies here; while not so much now; after 4 years most likely, I confess, & reveal the worst hand one can use in Poker, & die as a result. It almost seemed that while someone did mention me having quite the bit of knowledge so much of all MTG Players as a whole would've have any familiarity to nearly all of them. Since you seem to have some knowledge of Puella Magi lore; I wish to try & expand this as a result.

(NOTE: These are not multiple choice by no natter what.)

A: Oriko Magica is supposed to take place after the whole of Madoka Magica; which, actually, is one of the final chapters of the whole franchise. One of my favorite of the whole Saga; what's my favorite of this section of the Verse?

B: Magia Record has a huge amount of Puella Magi of this accord. After researching just the ones from this iOS game; who do you think is the Waifu I'd relate to the most on an emotional level? Remember, even Homura Akemi can count as a Shundere in spite of her now being the equivalent of a Maou (Devil King; or as Rebellion stated as canon: Akuma Homura), & even when Oriko Magica ended; Goddess Madoka & Akuma Homura might not ever come to a conclusion both can agree upon. NEXT!

C: & to think! All those were prequels! Even Madoka Magica! However, there is still one other of the current canon I think is an absolute badass. This needs no question; Suzune Amano. Started as a protag; & later becoming an antag. No two ways about it.

So, essentially; based on one's mileage, one would think Madoka Magica is the only canon. But there is so much lore; I think it's safe to say if you wanted to watch a Majo Shoujo anime to its end before watch Neon Genesis Evangelion, this is that one Majo Shoujo anime to watch; IGN Even concurred about this.

But, outside of Majo Shoujo crap, I just wanted to know about our thoughts on the very themes of an upcoming Vorthos deck of mine so far (It's not even done; I have to re-watch this to the end a second time to get all the info possible.). Plus, I've a Xantcha, Sleeper Agent Politics Deck if you can find any inspiration, a Mono- Burn Deck at least of "Semi-Competitive" levels, A Bant Enchantress Deck with a choice between one of two commanders ( Estrid, the Masked , & Jenara, Asura of War ), & a Omnath, Locus of Mana Mono- deck w/ elements unconventional for Mono-. That's 4 decks I have to work on; One I can handle, kind of. The rest, is an inner turmoil without any allies. I'll work on Kykar, Wind's Fury Vorthos/Melvin later. I just Wonder if even a Mono- Burn deck can even be done while breaking the norm of competitive nature. Well, It's been fun talking. Hopefully I increased your Folly for Puella Magi more than ever. Don't worry, I'll also look up Magia Record's Characters as well in case you don't know...

& now, me.

If you wanted to know; I never liked those who think a sources' original Literary origin at all; though there are exceptions to this rule; but it's just pointless to explain this. For some kinds of fiction that's at your face, & not by reading your way to failtown, I was stated by someone to be really intelligent; considering my wealth of knowledge for media. Eh... Aspergian Status? Grixis having the possible Esoteric Personality Trait? Even I dunno; but both are entirely confirmed. I just wonder how much info I know, considering is my Primary color, adds for the intellect I only have a meager amount compared to others in spite of slightly Asperger's status. & . Ambition. The fact I won't call it quits until I see it as done. That & it supports my on a more perverse level; a Naughty 26 yr old? Sometimes. Girlfriends? Hell no. I failed to even find a mate for more personal reasons.

Also, here are a list of things I like that nobody ever will:

DmC: Devil May Cry: (What the hell, guys! Do you really want an Osiris at your face?!) SOUL CALIBUR 5: (What's so bad about this game? SOUL CALIBUR 6, yes, but this still had some interesting ideas for characters better than IV's 5 Characters that only appeared as Namco demanded their creators to do that.) Mr. Meaty: (The WORST Nick Show of all time? HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Please! Nick Arcade is so much worse; & PSYCHOSIS did the Visuals! Even the Final Stage is NEXT TO IMPOSSIbibble; even DORA: & THE LOST CITY OF GOLD actually looks decent; send them all off.


That should be enough.

The list could extend, but I halted it there for now. I apologize for ever posting this in the first place; but I just wanted to let at least most of something out. I also apologize for the possibility of any inappropriate text.


That said, I wonder how to keep the Notifications of mine up to date; they don't seem to be working; AT ALL.

Farewell for now...

BMHKain on Best Mono-G CMDR for "Impurity" ...

@SP3CTR3_chelts: Ironically, that was the Working Title. Which leaves us to Two possible choices left; We got Aurelia, the Warleader , or even Feather . Ironic, considering Feather herself was exiled by Aurelia, only to be freed by a certain Krenko . I dunno how she survived that, But Razia was part of the Working Title; As she was a Parun; & the oldest Boros Legion Ravnican on Record. I also had Pierakor az Vinrenn D'rav (Yes, that's her true name.) an another option, As Aurelia is one of Feather's Creations; ultimately overthrowing her, & imprisoning Feather from there. Aurelia would've been good, but ol' Pierakor az Vinrenn D'rav created her, & even Agrus Kos was Feather's partner, & Agrus was murdered. Since Aurelia is an Overthrowing Byproduct by Feather, I'd hope such a name like: "Pierakor az Vinrenn D'rav's Parhelion △ Legion of the Damned" But the name is too long for cEDH Boros Community Deck Standards; much less any Deck Name Standard anyway. DX But, yeah. Only 2 Paruns are still standing; Rakdos , & Azor I ; actually, there are 3. But Niv-Mizzet is the one true Living Guildpact.

However, in the case of a cEDH Boros Community Deck; I'd have to go for Feather on this one; She created Aurelia; & she forced her out of the Guild for awhile...

For Inverter of Truth : I disregarded the whole idea after all that. Given how much I have, the only problem w/ running a The First Sliv deck in this case is: What do you think would be worth cutting for actual lands? I'm estimating on 36 for now; but what to cut is a question of high difficulty in itself. Also, I actually didn't want this as cEDH Material. Just an experiment to see if it works; Commander/EDH doesn't allow Sideboards, so stuff that can be Obtained from outside the game are useless. On the Topic of Commander; any updates on the Banlist?; What was cut that I actually had wool in my eyes for?

Huh. Never would've thought of those (The lands, I mean. Same for Glaring Spotlight .); how's Rampaging Ferocidon ? I also wish Red had better anti-lifegain against opponents; Tibalt, Rakish Instigator doesn't seem enough on this... & what's more ironic? I barely have a good way at all to do Politics: the Game; & if anyone want to enlist my help, why is it that in today's societies, the hardest word in the English Dictionary in everyday speak is just a coldhearted "NO."

"This is a Competition. I mean, this isn't about other people, it's about YOU! What the F--- is wrong with you?!" -Big Fazeek; The Tester Season II (One of the eliminated competitiors eliminated just for being thrown under the bus; even by his teammates after a Team Challenge He & the others won. A textbook example on how NOT to judge during an Elimination.)

Huh... Okay. I'll resume the Omnath crap. Though I dunno how far I can go w/o going below such ideas. But wait: Omnath, Locus of Mana allows you to keep your Mana Accumulated. Why can't Kruphix, God of Horizons do the same for ?

Well, thanks for the help though. I'm actually planning out a literal Color OC Planeswalker; though she's not the usual kind of character of Boros Personality though... So she would be more like the kinds of Boros Decks that have strategic ways; cEDH style instead of being a Chaotic, Vengeful being like Nahiri for instance. I'll leave it here now. Thanks. I'll see if these work...

Hey man!

Have you considered taking out some lands? Your land count is quite high, imo. If you are going to take out some lands or just need cards in general, you might want to consider these cards:

Good Luck with your deck, I hope my suggestions will help you.
