Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded Discussion
5 days ago
guero388 Thank you for the comment! Honestly, I haven't had too much time to play/test recently, but previous experience helps with the new decks as well. Mardu Pyromancer is a very particular build that often rewards experience of the match up to understand timing and sequencing. Most decks in Modern become more rewarding and more powerful based on the time invested. Stick with it! And, if it's not your cup of tea later, take a break, try something else, and find your niche.
Mellro I am very excited about Eldraine (mainly for the classic European fantasy theme, but also the big changes that will come to Modern). Chandra, Acolyte of Flame will need more testing, but I am always hesitant about Planeswalkers in Mardu Pyromancer. I have seen (and we could still use): Liliana of the Veil , Liliana, the Last Hope , Nahiri, the Harbinger , and Chandra, Torch of Defiance . I ask myself: "What does Chandra, Acolyte of Flame add to the build that these other Planeswalkers don't?" First, basic +1 ability does nothing for advantage, unless we start running Mardu/Boros Super Friends with Nahiri, the Harbinger , Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded , or any of the Chandra variants. The second ability (+0) does give us hasty tokens, but we have to sacrifice them, so only 2 damage is mediocre. I don't think Mardu Pyromancer is a token deck, per se, but it uses tokens to out value and out grind the opponent, through chump blocking and chip damage. Also, if we wanted a 3 cmc token generator, we would run Hordeling Outburst . The "ultimate" (-2) is actually one of the reasons I would consider running her, if only to consistently use Ransack the Lab for recursion and grinding. However, the deck runs at a slow, consistent rate, that we aren't trying to get rid of our hand incredibly quickly. Also, we run Bedlam Reveler and Seasoned Pyromancer for hand card advantage. I don't think we need Chandra, Acolyte of Flame .
Mellro touching on the new lands from Eldraine, specifically the Mardu colors: Castle Ardenvale is too expensive (in cost and requirement) for just 1 token. Castle Locthwain may be ok on an empty hand (and I would consider it), but Mardu Pyromancer usually doesn't run out of cards, unless Hazoret the Fervent is on the field and encourages emptying the hand. Castle Embereth is not bad on an established board. However, it feels like a "win-more" card, and Mardu Pyromancer (in my opinion) isn't a token deck looking to pump an endless amount of tokens on board; its purpose (again, in my opinion) is to outlast and out grind the opponent. Basically, tokens are like a cherry on top of a VALUE sundae. Castle Locthwain is the one I would consider, if only to give the option to dig for an answer. At this point, spending 3 mana to draw one card might be a bit of a heavy price. I would need to test them more.
saturn999 Thanks for the enthusiasm! We are still out here going strong!
Thanks again for your comments! The Modern Meta Match-Ups section is improving and I hope to have it completely done here soon!

Hold up, can you run Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded with some minor success?? Lol

(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.
One of the Protagonists: YOU'RE JUST WIRES & CIRCUITS! GOOD FOOD COMES FROM THE HEART!
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...

I was playing The Locust God against my niece's fiance who was playing Breya, Etherium Shaper . I played Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded on turn 2. I managed to keep Tibalt alive long enough to ult him. I won by attacking with exactly the right amount of power.
3 months ago
Ok, so after playing with this for a bit I have made the following modifications. Removed 2x Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice , 3x Disfigure 1x Mountain . Added 4x Knight of the Ebon Legion , 2x Shock and swapped 2x Plains for 2x Isolated Chapel in the mana base to compensate for the earlier black requirement. This was always meant to be an aggro deck to prey on the likes of Wilderness Reclamation so more one drops to start beating earlier seems natural. Disfigure might be a better choice than Shock for its combat trick potential but the added reach and ability to pick off low loyalty plainswalkers have swayed me towards the latter for now.
I have also removed Gideon Blackblade and Mortify from the side board, these were meant to help in the control match-up but I found you don't need them with the speed this deck can kill. I replaced them with a fourth Tocatli Honor Guard and Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded to help against Sulti Dreadhorde matches which I see as the worst match-up and potentially be good in the mono-red match-up.

Hi aarnok! I'm not familiar with how to reply to you on my deck thread, or if you'd be notified, so I figured I'd try sending you a comment this way to see if it works.
Thanks for the feedback and suggestions! Here's some insight as to my process:
Sword of the Animist is definitely a bit of a corner case inclusion, but I've gotten plenty of value from it. If my Feldon is on the field and has no targets in graveyard, at least he can get me some lands by swinging away. Plus I've got plenty of low CMC creatures that can be equipped and ramp me some land. It's performed well in all the games I've seen it!
Liquimetal Coating is bonkers with things like Ingot Chewer and Manic Vandal . It turns Feldon activations into "destroy any permanent". I've used it to take out Gaea's Cradle , Kozilek, Butcher of Truth and even planeswalkers. It's fantastic.
Chandra, Flamecaller is used exclusively for the 0 effect. Dumping my hand and drawing a new one plus one is fantastic and desirable since I'm often dumping a ton of threats for Feldon to activate or a bunch of cards I don't need. Yeah, she costs 6 but it's not a huge problem most games.
Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded is absolutely a bad card. I run it for the fun of it. I'd definitely say Sarkhan is better in all cases and may consider adding him in addition, but Tibalt is just a fun pet card that I enjoy. :)
Nahiri's Wrath is a newer inclusion but I have it in the deck as an alternate way to pitch big dragons and other buff creatures to the graveyard. It's removal and a discard outlet in one. It's tested adequately thus far, but it's definitely closer to the "gonna get replaced soon" side of things at the moment.
Rowdy Crew is a sleeper hit. Discard effects on creatures is great as Feldon can recur them to keep fueling the graveyard more and more!
I used to run Gauntlet of Power and Caged Sun but removed them to tone the deck back a bit as it was getting a little too powerful. I tone a lot of my decks to match my meta which is pretty casual, so sometimes I sacrifice some super-powerful cards for the betterment of the group. GoP was why I had so many basics, but you're right - I could do to add a few more nonbasics.
Goblin Engineer and Drakuseth, Maw of Flames are both on my "to buy" list. Hazoret's Monument is a great idea and I'm not sure why I'm not running it already, thanks! Endless Atlas seems cool too! Warstorm Surge is definitely powerful but it's another card that was sacrificed for playgroup purposes. The deck is already quite strong, and Surge is a bit "win-more" in my opinion. Godo, Bandit Warlord isn't a bad idea either but I only have four legal targets in the deck. Sure, grabbing Illusionist's Bracers would be slick but getting Boots or Greaves would feel underwhelming for the cost.
Worldgorger Dragon seems super interesting as some insurance to protect against board wipes (though the delayed trigger getting Stifle 'd would feel really bad), but I'm not sure how much else we could really abuse him since all my creatures would get summoning sickness again. It would untap my lands so if I had something like Hanweir Battlements in play I could give Feldon haste and use his effect again, but I just don't know that I run enough instants / flash stuff to warrant it. I'll have to consider trying him out.
Thanks a ton! I'll take a look at your list and let you know any feedback there!

Hey man, always love to see another fellow Feldon fan out there. Few questions and comments though:
I am not sold on the following cards: Sword of the Animist , Liquimetal Coating and Chandra, Flamecaller Sure we want to ramp up fast, but most of the time I don't have a creature or the mana to attack with the equipped Sword of the Animist . How is that for you? For Liquimetal Coating I don't see the potential, except to combo with Hellkite Tyrant . But the impact and chances seems to small to get them. For Chandra, she seems to cost to much for me. 6 mana is a lot to spend for. Are you using that for her +1 mainly? Is that 6 damage so much of a difference? Her +0 is oke, but also to much for 6 mana. Please tell me what your experiences are.
I would remove Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded and replace it for Sarkhan, Fireblood Cost a bit more, but you have the same effect with control over it. Plus you run a lot of dragons, so his other +1 seems to add up to that. Also I would drop Nahiri's Wrath . I think there are better removals that also don't cost two cards to play.
I like your inclusion of Rowdy Crew . Seems a lot of fun and not so bad when I think more about it.
Last are some cards I really think you should add: Goblin Engineer Drakuseth, Maw of Flames (new cards) Hazoret's Monument Endless Atlas and Warstorm Surge . Perhaps also Godo, Bandit Warlord , to get the specific equipments really helps a lot some times.
Overall it seems like a fun deck as well. Lot of looting, but maybe that is what I am missing.

(Yes, I pulled off a freaking Thanos; but only half a Plane of Existence dies. Rip. No wonder Darkseid would beat him, & Nintendo never lost a Death Battle for soooo long (& no, Mario vs Sonic fight 1 barely counts; same for Nintendo vs Nintendo.) X/)

I personally wonder how a sequel to an otherwise, crappy attempt for advice for a deck like this can get any worse. Regardless, might as well push on; ALOT of cuts have been made since; & I'm truly nearing the end; which means after that, I'll allow the personal Merit to make a Morophon, the Boundless Human Tribal Deck. But after that, & trying to make & cut to 100 cards for Kruphix, God of Horizons & aforementioned Tribal Deck; There is no more turning back; I plan to make a Tribal Deck w/ Kykar, Wind's Fury based on the 2016/2017 Documentary The Red Pill; as nobody had a previous objection to this even now, it is officially too late to object the idea.
IT's a Working Title as even though Razia, Boros Archangel was the Parun (The only rank of a Guild higher than a Guild Leader) of the Boros Legion; I actually wanted to get as ancient as possible; before the Ten Paruns was still an idea, & Ravnica, compared to other Major Planes of Existence is just recently formed in comparison to (then) many others.
Think of this as a haven for those who can think of combos in Commander/EDH that can win games; all while improving upon ideas The Legion would only dream of doing as a Guild. All that said & done though, I do apologize for this part of the whole thing; but it's not like I'd want to make a Tier 1 deck of this kind right away; that is too much already. But because Feather, the Redeemed , & (As a Joke.) Depala, Pilot Exemplar seemed to reach Tier 3, I'll start young from there. Even so, I do apologize about this kind of idea; but it just might work; after all, one topic stated "I played Boros before it is considered "cool""
Not the right name, but you get my point. If any of the few, the proud, the cEDH Boros users want to join in the future, I only need one suggestion: In MTG Lore, The Boros League's Parun: Razia is the first thing we know of in Ravnican Lore for the Boros Legion. But there was also a time before even the idea of a Parun of a Guild was ever a thought; here would have to be someone for each of the "Ten Guilds-To-Become" as the Primordial base for all ten. You may list all 10 each if you wish, but I just want the one for Boros.
& yes, In apologize for the whole "Boros" idea for the few cEDH Players, but, as I said before, most of my crap is more akin to "Semi-Competitive" anyway.
AW CRAP! I souldn't have mentioned my updates here! Uh, here are the questions before I have a mental breakdown for having most of this topic about anything, but Questions:
2: On the Topic of ol' Mu-Mu (I pray I'm still being honourable to her while enchristening her with a cute, & Affectionate Nickname; I don't understand Chinese Dialect; & I'm trying to learn Nipponese Kanji... Please forgive Me, Yanling...) She too has two new iterations, but which is the better to add?: Do you think Mu Yanling, Sky Dancer would be good? Sucks that has 2 Loyalty, maybe adding Prismatic Omen again can help? At least it's better than having to deal w/ Blood Moon , or what about Mu Yanling, Celestial Wind ?
3: ( Elspeth, Knight-Errant is kept.)
4: Golos, Tireless Pilgrim is an awesome new reveal, & I consider Top Secret Tek. Flikering it Recht & Link to supply you w/ your whole library of Lands, easily a card that is of immense Banworthiness. I also included Crucible of Worlds (Which WILL NOT leave the deck; especially if I get my lands screwed by an Armageddemon . Since I don't intend to lose either of the former, I think it is time to recreate Zendikar in ways not even Nissa, Who Shakes the World would ever do; Wrenn and Six can manipulate Lands, while working w/ both Crucible of Worlds & Golos, Tireless Pilgrim . But there is Also Xenagos, the Reveler , who makes a ton of mana from your creature tokens; can make a Hasty 2/2 Satyr, & for the record, his Ultimate is ENTIRELY OPTIONAL.
5: Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast ; Reason of Death: The creature from the Star Trek episode: The Man Trap.
6: (Ol' Teyo gets promoted in rank as a Shieldmage.)
(Not like it matters, Walkers w/ Indestructible while still being Walkers can be damaged all the same...)
7: (Misguided Idiocy Averted.)
8: (Very well. This Karn gets Korned.)

Because I had no choice but to mention this again. After I reach the 100 card mark, I wonder how to rebuild my landbase on a budget-level cEDH Level; despite being only "Semi-Cometitive". How'd you recreate this? Remember the Cycle Duals are mandatory 5 slots by default, & Crucible of Worlds , & Golos, Tireless Pilgrim are not to be cut from the non-lands either.
Side Note: It's fair enough This was meant for 1, 2, or even 3 color decks; I just used something similar for the current decklist.
And... that's it, actually. That took soooo long. So I'd like some answers unless anyone can make me answer them myself. Regardless, I still need to cut to 100 cards. So I hope this crappy sequel can help... :D
For Now, I'm planning after all this...
Actually, I have one last announcement. Remember that time that I wanted to make a Partners Deck? Well, I wasn't kidding. & neither is the theme in question, based on these cards:
Inverter of Truth (Maybe?)
Yep, I'm making a deck based on Exile running colors. Not running Atraxa though; I can't even believe I even cut her from Superfriends/Avengers. What two Partners would be good in a deck like this? & no, is exempt from this as their exile stuff isn't truly well devised here unless you got some things to say otherwise against this fact.
