RamaLama on It's Not Easy Being Green

You sound a little hostile there the_monogreen_h3dr0n_c0llector. There are so many ways to build a deck, you can even buy a Commander product from Wally World for like 40 bucks that plays pretty damn well, I know, I've played against some of them, or you can spend upwards of a couple of thousand dollars for a deck. Play what you like...pay what you like. Omnath can be built any number of ways and I have probably built him in most of those ways myself before settling on this build.

Even if you want to build Omnath in the way that I currently have him, you don't have to spend crazy money. Like for instance, you don't have to buy a $60 Karn Liberated when you can spend a few cents on a Scour from Existence and basically get the same effect I use Karn for in this deck. It may even be better since the exile effect is at instant speed rather than sorcery speed.

You can replace Extraplanar Lens and all the snow covered lands with something like Vernal Bloom and save another $30. Three Visits at $65 is the same card with a different name as Nature's Lore which is about a buck, and nobody says you have to have both.

You don't have to have a $45 Survival of the Fittest in the deck when there are so many good tutor cards out there. So replace that card with something like Wild Pair for like 40 cents, or Living Wish or Ring of Three Wishes or Time of Need or whatever.

I haven't even given this a whole lot of thought and I've already knocked $200 off the price of the deck without hurting it much at all. It's all about small increments. Is card "A" just a tiny bit better than card "B"? It's the kind of thing I grind over.

I'm sure your deck plays perfectly well, but there's no need to get all pissy about someone else's build. Build your deck the way you want and let other people do the same.

GabeCubed on You're killin' me, Walls!

@Darkmagi1131 I could, but Time of Need! That's why I prefer to have legendary fatties.

@clayperce Hey there! It is pretty fun, most of the time. Definitely need to draw well.. And no problems! There might be room for it. Seems like a good one, as I usually have a bit of extra mana. Not exactly sure what I would take out though. I'll figure it out. Thanks!

GabeCubed on Competitive Wall Tribal Help

2 days ago

Deciding I needed a more casual Modern deck, (I play Goblins and UR Delver. Not the best there.)and for my newfound love of the card Time of Need, I made this:

...and now I want it to be competitive. Typical. So, my questions are:

  • Are the wall counts okay?

  • Is my threat base adequate?

  • Should I have Elvish Mystic in there?

And am looking for general advice, just make sure to explain yourself.

Keep in mind, I want to still be wall tribal, and to be as competitive as possible. I play bad decks anyways, this is no different.

GhostB3N on Captain Sisay

Yomiji, Who Bars the Way lijtk me niet zo goed, ze mana cost is echt enorm en daarnaast geld zijn ability voor iedereen. En omdat iedereen met een legendary creature speelt lijkt dat me niet ideaal.

Mana ramp is denk ik ook niet ideaal, als ik maar naar 4 mana kom kan ik altijd met sisay land opzoeken (of Karametra, God of Harvests).

Nylea, God of the Hunt is wel goed, maar in dit deck heb je denk ik niet vaak devotion omdat ik veel meer wit speel als groen.

Time of Need = een sisay tap, lijkt me niet nodig, Kitsune Healer vind ik niet super omdat ik hem niet kan opzoeken, ik heb Oriss, Samite Guardian toegevoegd, Day of Destiny doet niet zo veel vind ik zelf.

Time of Need. Always forgotten, but always there.

Wat dacht je van: Reki, the History of Kamigawa, Heroes' Podium, Yomiji, Who Bars the Way, Time of Need, Kitsune Healer, Day of Destiny of Harmonize? Ze zorgen ervoor dat je gewoon kaarten kan pakken en je legendary's sterker worden.

De gebruikelijk ramp zouden ook wel handig zijn aangezien je wat dure spels hebt: Cultivate, Kodama's Reach & Rampant Growth.

Zelf ben ik ook gek op Krosan Verge met Myriad Landscape en als laats zou ik nog ff kijken naar de nieuwe monumenten Rhonas's Monument & Oketra's Monument

ghoul_Legion on My snake deck (that title took me two weeks...)

6 days ago

Dat's definetly not your usual go to snake deck.

Time of Need - Sosuke, Son of Seshiro - Bow of Nylea comes to mind.

You should probably update the mana base too

Great deck, I like it.

Emzed on Blasting Melira

Commune with Nature und Eldritch Evolution wuerden hier super reinpassen. Time of Need kann zB nur Melira finden, was man ja nicht immer braucht (wenn man schon eine oder mehr hat), aber die beiden vorgeschlagenen Karten koennen verschiedene Teile der Combo finden, je nach Bedarf. Auerdem sind beide deutlich effizienter als Diabolic Tutor.
