As for all the Hour of Devastation spoilers... I haven't bought boxed product in over a year. But this, I might buy a fat pack and a booster box. So many things I want and need. We aren't even halfway done with the spoiling yet too. I hope it doesn't die down as they could've blown their load at the very beginning. I want more bombs. :insertproperemojitimesthreecuzthatswhatthekidsdo:

I love telling good stories and I just got through with another memorable game of EDH so I thought I would share. I was piloting Punch and Judy Raise the Dead my Gisa and Geralf brew I've been playing since Eldritch Moon. The opponents were Zedruu the Greathearted (Pillow Fort shenanigans) and Grenzo, Havoc Raiser (Goblins)
A well timed Noxious Ghoul kept the Goblin Population well in control in spite of a Krenko and a Throne of the God Pharaoh. Remember folks, get your Goblins spayed and neutered.
So it comes down to me and Zedruu Zedruu had Sphere of Safety and Copy Enchantment down as a copy it forced me essentially to find a way around. (Paying 12 per not my idea of a good time.) He passes me Pyromancer's Swath I ditch my hand and top deck... The Scarab God Alright bud...Let's do this! He put the team on his back (Shell?) and carried us to the PROMISELAND! Scry 7 pick one bottom all lands. By the time our opponent drew Rout I was able to use Altar of Dementia to mill them for 70. They gg'ed Point is. He's in.

Casey4321: Lordie, that sounds like a fun game haha. I got to murder a whole table with Avacyn (and add five new commanders to her kill list!) on Friday so her bloodlust is sated for the moment ;)
(Though the last game did end unpleasantly, with a guy insisting I couldn't Swords to Plowshares his Blightsteel Colossus because I sarcastically asked "Who's dying?" when he cast him with a Lightning Greaves out, and he took that as tacit acceptance of an equip and move to combat. We never finished the game.)

On a different note! Anyone want to give my The Locust God deck one more look-over before I start actually trying to acquire the cards? :)

"Blew his deck, with a Hermit Druid,
And no basic lands; everything was decked to them.
And he's left; now all the players around
Will flip tables when you sing:

Sorry for the delay, I decided to do something out of the ordinary, and make a deck with a theme.
June 27, 2017 10:44 a.m.
Spoilers were just released
Daedalus19876 Got a new -1 counter that might be worthy
June 30, 2017 11:43 a.m.
Man Dunes of the Dead would have been SO good for the Gitrog Monster if it said "put into the graveyard from anywhere."
June 30, 2017 11:55 a.m.
Daedalus19876 you are like. This might be good I'm like Omg another playable spider for Ishkana! At this rate I might have a decent creature base in 8 or 9 sets!
June 30, 2017 3:31 p.m.
I think Tragic Lesson will catch on as a drastically improved Teferi's Response. It seems good enough to me to run in any competitive deck that would run Fact or Fiction for example. Counter your Wasteland and then draw 2 cards is a pretty darn cool mode to staple onto an otherwise boring card looting/draw spell. I know 3 mana can be a lot to leave open all the time though. What do you all think, is Tragic Lesson good enough to run in your control decks or is it only in my imagination that it seems great?
July 1, 2017 8:30 a.m.
n0bunga: Oh no, you're making a deck with a theme?!? What is this madness!?
Zimmers_0: Hehehehehehehehe I need that Obelisk Spider! Do you think that Apocalypse Demon fits in my Sidisi list? (Also, that name deserves a better card than the one it got...)
Rzepkanut: Hmmmm. I like how you think. I agree that under many circumstances, Tragic Lesson is superior to Teferi's Response (I, at least, think the increase in mana cost is more than fair for the increased utility). However, I honestly wouldn't play Teferi's Response under many circumstances, so I'm not sure if Tragic Lesson is very playable...
July 1, 2017 4:30 p.m.
Humbug. If it doesn't have 8 legs it's not a spider lol
July 1, 2017 5:22 p.m.
Deckwatch! I wrote my first Primer. Kind of...You'll see.
July 1, 2017 8:25 p.m.
This is a deck my best friend worked on - she's trying to make a properly competitive and popular deck for the first time. Anyone want to take a look and make suggestions? :)

My friends wife is getting into magic because she can have a cat deck, I fully approve of this commander.

Zimmers_0: As much as I enjoy the new cat tribal guy, I don't want to get banned again, sorry :(

Daedalus19876 Oh damn, my bad. It looked like it was one that gets released normally. Well, im just going not post pictures.
July 5, 2017 11:13 p.m.
Zimmers_0: I'm so sorry for deleting your post, man :( I just wanted to be careful. Feel free to post images, as long as they're official spoilers.
July 6, 2017 12:08 a.m.
Oh man, so after yesterday's spoiler, does that mean one precon contains ALL of those dragons? Holy smokes that seems like a ton of value.
I wonder what else will be included in tribal kitties?
My bets are on Merfolk and either Goblins or Demons as the remaining tribes.
July 6, 2017 9:23 a.m.
Currently, the only tribal I'm thinking about building is Zombies, and that's just so I can use The Scarab God.
But my mind may change depending on what the newly revealed tribal leaders are, heh.
July 6, 2017 11 a.m.
Yeah, next to SBT, Scarab God seems to be my fav tribal Zombie general!
July 6, 2017 11:18 a.m.
I would love to see Horror or Demons as one of the tribes but that would involve some tiny demons which I just dont see happening. Guessing one of them might be humans or angels though. It would be funny if they threw a curve ball and went with Slith's like Slith Firewalker or Zubera like Ember-Fist Zubera.
July 6, 2017 11:54 a.m.
Assuming here, but isn't it Mythic? Magicspoilers does all spoilers, real or fake. And I don't know of any others.
July 6, 2017 4:38 p.m.
Honestly it's tough; most days Magicspoiler gets there quickest, but Mythic also gets in with some first-view spoilers.
I'm currently waiting for Ixalan to be officially spoiled before I go back to EDH. I want to break Vela the Night-Clad.
In the meantime I'm just brewing another Frontier build. Mill looks insane lately with Fraying Sanity and Startled Awake. 2 Fraying Sanity on board with one casting of Startled Awake = 52 cards milled. GG.
July 7, 2017 1:13 p.m.
Zimmers_0: As a rule of thumb, try to avoid spoilers that are clearly taken with a camera. Those are always unofficial spoilers. Things in spoiler season are usually okay.
As we see how Yeago handles things, we'll know more about what level of "official" is accepted.
July 7, 2017 1:52 p.m.
Similar note, I have finally finished the Zelda-themed Gitrog Alters for my combo pieces, and also a random Beast Within and Overgrown Tomb, lol.
July 11, 2017 11:10 a.m.
thinks one day... one day, that he'll be decent enough at art to do real alters...

Quote from the LGS this evening. "Playing against Grand Arbiter Augustin is about as much fun as a sandpaper handjob."
July 11, 2017 10:58 p.m.
Casey4321: Can confirm as accurate.
July 12, 2017 3:32 a.m.
Haunted Dead, Maybe? I do like the idea of having a backing Crucible.
Also for Gitrog/Dakmor to dredge infinitely, you'd need a discard outlet like Skirge Familiar or Putrid Imp.

Whenever I have those feelings, I try to make a game out of it or recite some quotes or a song to make it a little more light-hearted, at least on my end of things.

Quote about my Rashmi deck (Rampy Rashmi's Value Machine - 25 Tix Budget MTGO) from a friend after a few 1v1 matches:
- "You don't play that deck against friends."
Made me feel weird to read...kinda bad but also strangely kinda good...I love playing magic with my friends for mutual fun but I also like building as good quality of decks as possible and solving the game and playing to win. He wasn't actually angry at me I don't think, but I know he didn't have much fun playing against me that night either. Up to that moment I was only pleased with how well my deck was performing, and enjoying playing with it. Hearing it was no fun to play against was a bummer. But simultaneously it was almost like a compliment since the deck is designed to win games, and I always play to win. I never wanted to be a bummer to my friend though...I thought he was enjoying the challenge. We had some close games, but in retrospect I was mostly winning the whole time.
- Moral of the story: If one of your decks is potentially crushing your friend's spirits over and over, switch decks a little more often and let everyone get a chance to have fun. Even if its super fun to be the crusher, it's not fun for your friend to be crushed repeatedly. That's what random internet opponents are for.
This is why I have so many EDH decks, you gotta have every power level for playing against different opponents and different kinds of decks. I've learned this lesson before but online gaming makes it easier to be unaware of your opponent's emotional state. Just a friendly reminder to all the high powered deck builders here in the Deckwatch.
July 14, 2017 6:48 p.m.
I hear you man loud and clear. It's why I keep Kaalia on lockdown most game nights. I try to gauge the level of most metas, if they're low powered and more casual I play Ishkana tribal spiders or Isperia the Inscrutable (things with wings) but I'm thinking about taking Titania to that next level if I can.
July 14, 2017 7:12 p.m.
I'll be taking Punch and Judy Raise the Dead to this Tuesday's Commander Tournament in honor of the late great George Romero. A piece of my childhood has passed away.
July 16, 2017 5:59 p.m.
Hi, I know I'm not a member, (hope that's ok) but I saw Rzepkanut's post and just had to comment. I really liked the moral and the point about having multiple decks of different powers lvls. As someone who happened to start playing magic in a meta of talented deck builders, I came to realize how important having players who can balance their competitive and non-competitive decks to fit the mood of the meta can be. Also, this looks like a really cool idea and I've enjoyed the topics in the thread! May I join you guys?
July 17, 2017 3:32 a.m.
So, I have an idea about collecting a dirt load of mana and I want to bounce it off a few of you guys before delving to far into the idea. Neheb, the Eternal, Sakiko, Mother of Summer, and Black Market would be the main cards to produce the mana. This would have to be a creature based strategy so Braid of Fire wouldnt work without flash. Flash could be fun if everything untapped each turns but not sure which way to go with this yet.
I also though of doing X costing spells and run a Rosheen Meanderer like deck. But this really limits the spells that can be played. Or I can go with more of a card advantage, control rout. Really have a lot of possibilities here and want to see what everyone thinks. I was thinking Kresh the Bloodbraided as the CMDR since its structured around creatures attacking and dying. But up for different ideas or color changes. Anyone know more cards like Neheb, the Eternal, Sakiko, Mother of Summer, and Black Market?
July 19, 2017 1:06 p.m.
Hey Lythia! I'm new here, so inducing new members feels like someone else's "responsibility" but the more the merrier i think :) I like having active magical conversations to participate in.
July 19, 2017 1:15 p.m.
Rzepkanut just with a bunch of tokens at the beginning of the turn, upkeep, or so on? That could work out pretty well. Use those creatures to attack and get more mana and spend it on something big. I like the idea.
July 19, 2017 1:15 p.m.
Zimmers_0 I was brewing a weird creature based 5 color storm deck on my phone that I should share here sometime...its built around creatures that immediately create mana. Like Beastcaller Savant, Burning-Tree Emissary, Blood Pet, Peregrine Drake, Animar, the mana reduction familiars, etc... powered by things like Recycle and Primordial Sage. Never built it though, just an unfinished deck idea... its just a list of 70-80 nonland cards currently.
July 19, 2017 1:47 p.m.
Rzepkanut Its a good idea and I thought of doing something like that myself but for a sacrifice deck so you could get more mana and turn that into a Fireball or something. Like Priest of Gix with Heartless Summoning and Ashnod's Altar. Wouldnt mind taking a look at it if its still online.

I've been away from T/O a lot due to a JPL internship, haha!

New deck theme idea: Zur the Enchanter as X-men's Legion, where every enchantment he tutors is a new personality he takes on.
July 19, 2017 2:15 p.m.
Zur as reverse santa always seemed pretty funny to me. And you get a present Banishing Light and you get a present Journey to Nowhere, and you get a present Silkwrap. You have been extra naughty so Nevermore.

Thank you so much everyone for the warm welcome! And Zimmers_0 I don't know too many cards of the top of my head that weren't already listed but maybe Savage Ventmaw or Mana Geyser? Also, n0bunga I love that deck idea! Partially (I'll admit) due to my love of Invader Zim. "Bow down before the power of santa or be crushed by his jolly boots of doom!"
July 20, 2017 2:43 a.m.
Lythia: Welcome and sure!
Hey guys and gals its been a while. I have just completed my latest project and will build on the description over the next month or so. Its pure cEDH made to play against similar decks only. I have built the deck around Razaketh, the Foulblooded and I am pretty pleased with it.

By the way, whoever put Thought Vessel as the card that represents themself - you do you, but the original goal was for each person to choose a creature card as an "avatar" haha.
