Description

WELCOME, FRIENDS! :)

So this is my first attempt at creating a hub where we can all communicate!

Unfortunately, as far as I'm aware, TappedOut does not possess any functions for making a group chat (and sites like Discord or an IRC don't link to MtG cards, or keep a record of conversations). This is the closest compromise I could find.

I've set it up so you all can edit this "deck", if you want to add anything to the description or spiff up how it looks (since I'm no good at putting custom coding into deckpages).

So here's the story on this concept: I've been thinking of assembling a sort of subgroup of the most skilled EDH players/deckbuilders on this website, so we can look over each other's decks, deckbuild new commanders as they're released, etc. Many skilled eyes is always better than only one pair, when messing with a new strategy or untested card. And since I usually tag/bother the same people anyway...The goal is a friendly community who tag each other to build semi-cooperatively.

This is very much open to discussion, but here's my initial idea:

This is a group to chat about EDH and ask for advice, both on specific decks and on general brainstorming. In particular, we'll get together and brainstorm/build for new commanders when they're spoiled. Speculation is encouraged!

Although of course there's no formal obligation to do any of this, it all works better with active participation :) I at least will try to comment/look over each of the decks posted here.

I'd love help hashing out the purpose of this group further!

I think we've all met, but just to get to know each other better, let's give a short introduction...

Card that represents me: Vulpine Goliath

I enjoy making cEDH decks in my spare time, but I usually play casual EDH. I am a clinical psychologist by trade and a married father of two. I don't have many hobbies besides making magic decks and working out (so I dont die of a heart attack before the age of 35) because all my time is accounted for most days :-) I consider myself as a great magical theorist but only an average player. I often think about how to break magic cards and improve the efficiency, speed, and resilience of my decklists.

My specialty is anything with BUG in the color scheme but I have plenty of knowledge about most things EDH. I am always happy to talk MTG even if it means some wife aggro...

The cards that best represents me are Ad Nauseam and Paradox Engine. I value synergy and quality in my card choices and my decks often end up putting me on the brink of death most games due to my willingness to trade life for power. I am Spike and a Johnny, but I don't mind losing if it means I can try something outside the box.

Creature that represents me: Rune-Scarred Demon

Started playing MtG many years ago when 'Fourth Edition' hit the streets. Since then I stopped and started several times untill 'Born of the Gods' was released.... myself and a few old buddies decided to hop on the magic train once again!

These days we only play the Commander format. For me it's a mix of cEDH and fun EDH. I try to adapt myself to the group we are playing with. Fun and good times are the most important thing, something that can be achieved with casual- and competitive play.

I love shaping decks. My view on any deck is that it's never a completed project, but needs shaping and tweaking as time and sets progresses.

Summon me if you ever need help. I like to play with Green, white and black. But I absolutely dislike blue.... just cause so many people play this in my area.

Favorite color: Green

Favorite guild: Selesnya

Favorite wedge: A potato

Card that represents me: Bloom Tender : Give life & take life... straight from the palm of my hand...

See my profile for more info.

Current Deck: this-fortress-of-tears-zedruu-pillowfortcontrol-1

I'm relatively new to MTG, I started playing during Innistrad. I only play EDH now, it is by far my favorite format.

I am the self proclaimed, "King of Misplays."

I am notoriously bad(good) at overlooking things while in the middle of an hours long game. Thus, I try to double down on studying Magic cards and interactions I'm unfamiliar with in an effort to counteract my obliviousness. Always open to suggestions, always willing to give any advice if needed!

Player Archetype: Diversity Timmy/ Deck Artist Johnny/ Analyst Spike

Favorite Guild: Boros

Favorite Wedge: Jeskai

Colors I'm NOT familiar with: GREEN/BLUE

Favorite Card: Helvault

Creature that represents me: Abattoir Ghoul

Hello! I'm AwezomePozzum, a theorycrafting Commander player from Michigan. I build and change decks here on tappedout almost weekly, but I am unable to financially support building almost any of them. Low budget, big ideas. I get really, really excited during spoiler season, for ANYTHING. Mostly Magic though.

I try and find any way to help around that I can, and I have general knowledge of EDH, other than competitive. I just don't know enough about it to provide information. (I also dislike cEDH personally)

The card that best fits my personality is Arcbound Ravager. While I am not a cannibalistic robot, I am resourceful, adaptable, and I can run like the wind. (It must be able to as well with those legs, right?)

Cheers!

Hobbies: Playing Magic (no shit), making mtg decks, annoying my friends with "dank" memes, puns, lurking on forums.

The Old Gods (Lovecraft Themed)

Commander / EDH* AwezomePozzum

SCORE: 2 | 51 VIEWS | IN 2 FOLDERS


A themed deck, headed by Wrexial, the Risen Deep. Designed heavily on one done by another person (profile link in description of deck). Added slightly more tentacle monsters for that extra world-destroying eldrazi power. Top building priority for me.


Tana Auras

Commander / EDH* AwezomePozzum

SCORE: 1 | 48 VIEWS | IN 2 FOLDERS


A non-themed, hybrid Tokens and Aura Voltron deck. Buff Tana, the Bloodsower to all hell with enchantments (and the occasional Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder ability), swing, get tokens, Beastmaster Ascension, win. Pretty damn fun, from the playtesting I've done.


The Skies of Bant (3 Custom Cards!)

Commander / EDH* AwezomePozzum

SCORE: 2 | 2 COMMENTS | 37 VIEWS | IN 2 FOLDERS


Custom commander, two custom cards. Hopefully balanced. Definitely fun.

In all seriousness, it's angel tribal, exalted midrange, aurapalooza, and slightly group hug. That's a lot of themes. It works though, one of the funniest things to do in the deck is to play political and give your opponent's permanents indescructible, in exchange for them not exiling your shit.

It can run Rafiq of the Many in the command zone and swap in 3 other cards if it has to, because not everyone thinks custom cards should be used in commander, even if your entire testing playgroup and multiple expert edh players agree they are balanced. [insert shrug here]

My real name is Ryan. I started playing sometime during the Ice Age and Homelands expansions. Stopped playing for several years (Onslaught block)and only got back after being introduced to the Commander format.

I work for the government and am currently taking up my masters in Public Administration. Aside from Magic: the Gathering, I am also into aquariums. I also played a bit of college basketball.

I play mostly combo decks. The faster the better. My philosophy in building decks, especially in multiplayer EDH is to always be on the offensive.

Here is my current project:


There Is No Cow Level!

Commander / EDH* Megalomania

SCORE: 21 | 77 COMMENTS | 3855 VIEWS | IN 9 FOLDERS


As for a card that best represents me, it will probably be Necropotence since my entire attitude towards deckbuilding was influenced by the Necrodeck.

Creature that represents me: Hypnotic Specter

I've been playing MtG on and off since about 2005. These days I mainly play casual EDH and a bit of Canadian Highlander. My preferred playstyle is definitely combo. I am a hardcore Johnny, combo player at heart.

Outside of MtG, I work as a Mechatronics Engineer to pay the bills. Other than that, I have been rock climbing (almost exclusively indoor) since mid 2013 and have been doing taekwondo since early 2014. Between that and the occasional bit of video gaming, the girlfriend and family/friends I lead a pretty busy life.

Also, you might notice that I respond to posts at odd times. This is because I'm from sunny Queensland, Australia.

Card that represents me? Probably Isochron Scepter. All dem possibilities.
Creature that represents me here? Felidar Sovereign.

Favorite deck: all-of-hyrules-lands-flow-through-my-deck-balls

Player archetype: Johnny-Vorthos-Melvin

Short bio: I'm a Toronto born altitudinous lad, who has just finished certification in Pre-Service Firefighting, hoping to get on to a department. I'm also a Reviews Editor for a gaming website.

MTG was a part of my early childhood with my older brother introducing me to Mirage and Arabian Nights. There was a large gap from then and I had only just picked it back up with the release of Khans, and I've been near obsessed ever since.

I'm that person who'd have an idea for a theme or gimmick and would be up in the wee hours of the morning making sure I put that idea down in deck form.

Most here know me for the thematic decks I try to do with commander. The essence of the format is that that the 99 work synonymously with your general, so I like to have a bit of fun and tell a story if I can.

Favorite Color: Black

Favorite Guild: Golgari

Favorite Shard: Grixis

Favorite Khan Wedge: Sultai

Hobbies: Magic, Medieval Archery, Video Games, Anime, anything related to The Legend of Zelda

Card that represents me: The Gitrog Monster while I'm neither a Frog Horror, or the King of Zora, I love the symbolism of what the card does - offering a true yin and yang balance of your library and grave.

Favorite deck: The Red Horesman Rides Again!

Player archetype: Timmy!

Short bio: I'm working on my masters degree in Library and Information Science right now. I'm also writing a comic book as a hobby. I'm 26 and I enjoy my life right now.

Favorite color: Red

Favorite guild: Boros

Favorite shard: Esper

Favorite wedge: Abzan

Hobbies: Magic, designing comics, script writing.

Card that represents me: Laboratory Maniac that flavor text is definitely definitely my playstyle. I tend to win by accident.

Hey, I'm Tacticsninja16782, but you can call me Max, or really whatever you like. I love playing magic and have been for almost four years now. Here's a quick few facts about me. I am a junior in a performance arts highschool, focusing on piano and theater. The decks I am best at building are control decks, however I can fine tune and help with any one if you just ask :). I love philosophy, card games, DnD, board games, and a hundred other things. I work really hard on my magic decks, but also brew about a deck a day. I don't pursue many of them very far. If a deck sticks out to me as something to keep working on, I tinker and fine tune it, and you get things like my grand arbiter EDH deck. I play two types of commander. Competitive, where I really actually want to win, using decks like arbiter or narset, and funtimes, where some of my less competitive and even sillier decks come out. I think it's good to have a healthy balance of both, because not everyone in my meta is as competitive as I am, and silly fun casual commander games can be relaxing once in a while. Here are some quick stats about me.
Favorite guild: Azorius. Favorite Shard: Grixis or esper. Favorite Wedge: JeskaiFavorite color combos: RWU And WU. Favorite combo: The infinity myr combo with Myr Propagator and Myr GalvanizerCard that represents me: Toshiro UmezawaThat's all there is for now, message me if you want deck help!

Ohai Dere! I'm Eiti3, phonetically 83, and I started MTG in M13 in my college years. And due to paying my way with cash, I ended up playing my first entire year with paper in sleeves. That paper Mana Crypt looks great next to that paper Forest. And it wasn't until a few months after I bought my first EDH deck, as Tribal Slivers, did I win my first game - with a Virulent Sliver I put in earlier that day. So yea, I have the greatest rap sheet of a MTG player.

Other than that, I play EDH primarily. My goal is to never netdeck and to build decks or themes that nobody has ever thought up before. Looking at any of my decks will hold this notion. Lastly, I'm a stubborn dolt who needs some rather heavy explaining done when suggestions are made. Having someone say "Nah, Gilded Lotus is a bad card, you should use Hedron Archive instead" lends no insight or reason behind it than an opinion.

Favorite Color:

Favorite Guild:

Favorite Shard:

Favorite Wedge:

Absolutely Despise , even more so when it is teamed up with .

Favorite Combo: Necropotence + Magus of the Future

Card that Best Represents Me: Flash of Insight. I get an idea and I must do it; plus look at that face!

Creature the Best Represents Me: Mistform Ultimus - It may wear your face, but its mind is its own. Always loved the concept of Changelings.

Feel free to add your own! :)

If you go that route I would cut 3 lands total and add 3 rocks to replace them. Fellwar stone is a lock. I would also play chrome mox and possibly mox diamond or grim monolith. Mox opal is solid but you need alot of cheap artifacts to get the most out of it. You have tons of artifacts but not as many cheap ones as I prefer

March 21, 2017 3:19 p.m.

Daedalus19876 says... #2

Lilbrudder: I can't afford Grim Monolith or Mox Diamond I'm afraid - this Mox Opal is a very specific and advantageous trade. I probably should put in Fellwar Stone, but I'm worried that too few of my opponents will be playing W and/or R. I'm also not very willing to go below 35 lands in a deck with a 5C commander. So I'm somewhat torn...

March 21, 2017 3:47 p.m.

n0bunga says... #3

Honestly it wouldn't hurt to run things like Chromatic Lantern despite only being two-colour. Outside of that, Opal can be online a reasonable amount of time if you focused on other mana rocks or any other artifact you'd have on board.

Lilbrudder's definitely right though, the consistency factor will drastically improve should you choose to run the 0-drops as well because boom! T1 you've a land, diamond/opal and crypt where someone else plays that aggressive T1 BOP.

March 21, 2017 3:56 p.m.

Daedalus19876 says... #4

n0bunga: Currently I have Mana Crypt in there, so that helps. I don't like Chrome Mox in this deck even though I own one (the card disadvantage hurts too much, and the deck is too colorless), and I can't afford Mox Diamond.

March 21, 2017 3:59 p.m.

Lilbrudder says... #5

Oh you have a budget! How about Mana Crypt (edit nvm you have a foil version) and Imperial Recruiter ermm wait...I'm not very good at this. I am obviously all about going fast and pushing things to the limits but I will never go above 32 lands for any commander ever again except maybe for asusa, angry omnath, or turbofroggy. Rocks will always get you there faster. Unfortunately your colors are horrendous for good rocks I will think on this. Mind Stone? Coldsteel Heart? How about you sell your foil copies for regular versions of the cards then buy grim monolith and mox diamond. Blasphemy?

March 21, 2017 4:04 p.m.

n0bunga says... #6

Yeah Chrome Mox does come at a cost, I guess I always look at it from situation to situation. I was also primed to being "okay" with exiling things for FC combos and cards that make you exile three from your library.

I'm fairly certain I've imprinted removal spells that I didn't need at the time just to make use of the colours they're housed in for Chrome Mox.

And if you want even MORE budgety rocks, Dreamstone Hedron and Hedron Archive could be things.

March 21, 2017 4:07 p.m.

Daedalus19876 says... #7

Lilbrudder: I do have a budget, astonishingly: it's why I also don't have a Plateau in the deck. The foiling has occurred very slowly and over time, and some of the most expensive cards have been gifts. In answer, yes, it's a Blasphemous Act to sell my foils XD

I do need to pick up a Plateau and a Mox Diamond for this deck. But given that I don't have them and I DO have a Mox Opal (the masterpiece no less), is it playable with a total of 27 artifacts (my current set, plus 3 artifact lands and the Mox)? Given that most of those artifacts are CMC 2 or less...

March 21, 2017 4:11 p.m.

Lilbrudder says... #8

It is is very playable

Daedalus19876 says... #13

n0bunga: I know, right?? Hopefully, between the people in this group, we'll manage to build all of the commanders in the upcoming set.

And Lilbrudder, after testing Mox Opal in Avacyn, it's more inconsistent than I would like but I'm still playing it because it can be so ridiculously explosive with a good opening.

March 24, 2017 6:35 p.m.

Lilbrudder says... #14

Yeah without all the expensive mana positive rocks its like that. Its definitely worth a spot either way. Im curious why no Masterwork of Ingenuity. Double Skullclamp, Sword of Fire and Ice, or Batterskull is flat out ridiculous.

March 24, 2017 8:20 p.m.

AwezomePozzum says... #15

Hell yes. If they bring back the god mechanic again like in theros, I'll probably build one of each here on T/O. I'll probably only build one in paper though.

March 24, 2017 10:19 p.m.

Daedalus19876 says... #16

Lilbrudder: I had it in there originally, but I eventually got sick of having it in hand with no good targets. It's amazing to copy a Sword, but less so to copy a Basilisk Collar, et cetera. I find that double strike often has the same effect with less variability.

I'm having to fight the urge to make a new commander deck, since the new set will give me new awesome commanders... #FirstWorldProblems

Apologies if I'm crashing the party but this is one of the coolest ideas I've seen. And after inspecting the description and archive, I'm led to believe that I may not be as skilled a deck creator as I hyped myself to be, or perhaps portrayed an undesirable personality to be included. Either way, found this little gem, here's a for the coolness that this is and I'll be on my way. Happy building.

Go ahead and look at it already if you want. I still need to get more cards in here(as my list is at home), so it's not the final card pool, but I guess you can tell me what is terribad? (Looking to do a token/value deck here, with some fun)

AwezomePozzum: Your deck needs a Battle of Wits as the primary win condition :P

Also, y u no Palinchron? You get lots of palinchron tokens with Riku.

AwezomePozzum says... #29

1: Battle of Wits doesn't work, i'm trying to cut down to 100. if this was a joke, i'm not in the mood for that atm.

2: Palinchron is a good suggestion, but can you put anything else about this deck on the actual deck page please?

Thanks for giving feedback! enpc

March 27, 2017 5 p.m.

enpc says... #30

Yeah, that was a joke. Sorry if it went down the wrong way.

While I can leave some comments on the deck page specifically, I would also make the observation that with that many cards, you're probably better off just purging the list and then starting from scratch. I think on the whole its going to be a much less painful process and you'll get the list down to ~120ish cards a,lot more quickly. At that point making cuts will be much easier.

March 27, 2017 5:06 p.m.

Lilbrudder says... #31

Yeah 256 cards is a bit ridiculous tbh as a starting point. There is no possible way we can help you cut 156 cards. Maybe try the 88 deckbuilding method. Pick 8 effects you want and 8 cards for each effect. Then refine from there.

Eiti3 says... #32

Daedalus19876, I don't know. All I could think about was the broken stuff I am about to do with Paradox Engine + Oracle's Vault. Just do a quick Mana Severance and then play the rest of your deck.

March 27, 2017 6:11 p.m.

AwezomePozzum says... #33

Alright, I'l try that approach, if not that exact method. Thanks Lilbrudder

March 27, 2017 6:12 p.m.

Lilbrudder says... #34

Your welcome :-) I've always found it easier to start from a shell of cards I really like then fill the rest in with cards that support the general strategy than to do the opposite

March 27, 2017 6:14 p.m.

Daedalus19876 says... #35

AwezomePozzum: I listed all of the creatures, instants, and sorceries I'd cut. (Ow, my fingers really hurt now.)

And Eiti3, I agree. Oracle's Vault is bonkers...but I don't find it to be a particularly elegant card design. I wish it used the brick counters for something other than a "gatekeeping" method...

March 27, 2017 6:34 p.m.

Sixth sense is a neat effect. I think it has potential in some edh decks. The fact that you can enchant opponents creatures makes it much stronger

Also just noticed Jackal is a new creature type. Is it weird that I'm hoping for some sort of tribal?

Tattered Mummy Show

And I personally think Sixth Sense should've been triggered when attacking, rather than damage. That sort of spidey sense to give insight to what is about to come instead of realization after the fact. Feels weird to me.

I want to rebuild Rashmi, Eternities Crafter, but although my previous build was strong it was never fun. Can any of you think of an unusual and fun way to build her, while still being able to keep up as the control deck at a competitive table?

I'm shying away from combos with her (though of course I know that's the strongest way to build her). Maybe some kind of tempo/resource deck that steals opponents' win-cons to claim victory?

Daedalus19876 - Crazy idea, but that's just me, but why not a control Rashmi, Eternities Crafter with Timesifter and a Ugin's Nexus, bouncing the nexus with spells like Karn, Silver Golem + Vanish into Memory for when you want to take extra turns? I would build the deck about stacking the top of your deck while controlling others. I honestly don't know how reliable that is, but it is definitely a new take on her control theme. I would find it hilarious pulling those combos off - hell, even watching them get pulled off.

Eiti3: That could be interesting! I'll look into it, and tag you when I have a preliminary decklist!

Daedalus19876! YOU WAIT UNTIL SOME LEGENDARIES ARE SPOILED. BAD! (Swats you on the nose with a rolled up newspaper).%

Lilbrudder: You're completely right, of course, and I am a lowly worm cowers

But I have such a shiny foil copy of Rashmi, Eternities Crafter :(

Lol you could probably sell it for a nice profit ;-)

Trying to put back together a Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer deck!

Lilbrudder noticed your leovold isn't showing up on the Tier list anymore..you workin on it?

March 28, 2017 9:50 a.m.

Lilbrudder says... #52

n0bunga: Ah thats wierd. No I have not touched the list in a while. I am at the point where getting my decks featured on that list is not really a priority anymore. I got a T/O ranking of 10 overall at one point and to get any higher would likely require a ridiculous amount of devotion to that cause. I am actually in the process of giving my slots to more deserving deckbuilders who are keeping an active list. I should pass on my Leo list but the issue is that the ideal build for Leo doesn't exist given his versatility or has not been found yet. As of late I have been doing nothing but Thrasios.

Love-in-Theory: Ooh, now that looks right up my alley! I'll take a look when I have a chance.

I cut 2/3 of the cards, this should be easier to work with. Anyone still interested?


So what gods are open for building for amonkhet? someone's already building the Sobek clone to my knowledge, and I want to know what everyone else seems interested in.

I'm probably going to do the Thoth, Anubis, and/or Bast decks. All on T/O though, all my expendable income is going toward my Riku deck.

March 28, 2017 1:32 p.m.

Daedalus19876 says... #55

AwezomePozzum: Obviously it depends heavily on the abilities, but I hope to build the Anubis and/or Thoth gods. Anubis because I'm a furry and it pleases me, and the Thoth one because the art is gorgeous. We'll have to see how it turns out.

But honestly I just. want. to. see. legendary. cards. spoiled.

March 28, 2017 1:35 p.m.

AwezomePozzum says... #56

Same. My favorite part of a mtg spoiler season is seeing all my friends hype about a new legendary creature(or in the case of Ulrich of the Krallenhorde  Flip, cringe). It makes me so energized to have the opportunity to build with an entirely new focus.

I wholeheartedly agree with the furry comment, but I also want to build anubis because I've been wanting a graveyard deck for quite a while.

In all candor, I want to build all the gods, but it's just most likely that I'd build one of the three I already listed.

I'm hyped for crocodile headed goodness lol I'm hoping he's a war god. I like smash strategies.

Daedalus19876 says... #58

Update: Amonkhet "Masterpieces" (called "Invocations") will begin to be spoiled in 3.5 hours from the time of this post! The hype is real...

Casey4321 says... #59

Guessing sorcery instant cycle.

March 28, 2017 2:37 p.m.

Eiti3 says... #60

I don't know whether to hate them for how "eh" they look, or love them for their creativity. I mean, even the Masterpieces kept a bit of the black border at the bottom.

But all the Invocations really reminded me of was Show

March 28, 2017 7:17 p.m.

Casey4321 says... #61

I guess I get it but like...Eh? I means I kinda like the style but like at the same time I'm with Eiti3 on this one lol

March 28, 2017 7:36 p.m.

Lilbrudder says... #62

AwezomePozzum: The deck wont run smooth with clunky curve. Cut from the top of the cc tree. Trim all but the most essential bombs and build around those bombs. No more than 5 would be ideal for a fun casual deck.

5 bombs rest pure Riku valuetown

March 28, 2017 11:08 p.m.

n0bunga says... #63

Lilbrudder Ahhhh gotcha! I'm in the midst of making one myself while I wait for any new legendaries.

And yeah, regarding the Invocations:- Sweet name for them- Great flavour- Just not digging the designs

Maybe they'll unban gold-bordered cards from tournaments now though? :P

March 28, 2017 11:30 p.m.

Lilbrudder says... #64

They totally should make gold bordered legal. I want this for purely selfish reasons

March 28, 2017 11:45 p.m.

Lilbrudder says... #65

Economics would probably get in the way. It would make a handful of people super rich

March 28, 2017 11:46 p.m.

Casey4321 says... #66

I ask first and usually no one has a problem. I have gold border survival of the fittest and Patriarch's bidding.

We play a bit of Canadian Highlander and are allowed to proxy points cards in my playgroup. Becuase screw buying an Ancestral Recall or Mox Sapphire.

March 28, 2017 11:56 p.m.

Daedalus19876 says... #68

I feel much the same about the Invocations. Cool cards. Good art overall. Awful, horrible frames.

There are still one or two I might try and pick up if they're relatively cheap.

March 29, 2017 12:05 a.m.

The invocations are hideous. Highly disappointed, WoTC

March 29, 2017 12:54 a.m.

enpc says... #70

I have to say I actually kind of like them. I think that bar was set really high with the Kaladesh Inventions, but I'm actually happy to see WotC trying something a bit more bold and different. While I think there's something left to be desired on some of the elements, overall I'd say good on them. you don't gain anything unless your risk something. And even if the resik doesn't pan out, you learn.

Just whipped this up.

Daedalus19876 says... #72

n0bunga: I'll take a look. But I think it should be obvious at this point that Lilbrudder is the one to ask about Leo, heh.

And on the subject of the Invocations, I think I've identified what annoys me about them: the title font, and those damn little black squares on either side of the main text. I might pick up Mind Twist, Entomb, Diabolic Intent, and Vindicate, though.

How do you think the pricing for the Invocations will compare to that of the Masterpieces and the Expeditions?

March 29, 2017 2:01 p.m.

n0bunga says... #73

I feel like they may be all over the place. Ones with constant reprints will probably get that "low" tier pricing like the 20-40 range (Canadian, sorry folks).

Force of Will is something I wonder about. I haven't seen too many people prefer the Invocation over Alliances or Eternal Masters; I wonder how much more the Invocation will be. We know how insane a foil EMA Force is.

March 29, 2017 2:43 p.m.

Daedalus19876 says... #74

If we don't get any interesting commanders in this set, I may build Alesha, Who Smiles at Death in the near future. If I do, I'll be putting at least 4 of the Invocations in the list.

(I'll also build it based on n0bunga's list - it seems really cool.)
