inb4 "not legendary"

I always liked Yore-Tiller Nephilim the most. Maybe cause reanimating ridiculous creature is fun.

OMG! i keep having to explain this. in the lore they are legendary. the only reason they aren't legendary is b/c WoTC skrewed up. Also, sorry, but I haven't done yore yet. I know what I'm gonna do, but its late and I've already made 3 nephilims today.

I know they're not legendary. inb4 literally means "in before", implying someone usually makes a comment about how they're not legendary.

I... am going.... to

nevermind, I got a better idea.

I act like I'm going to hug you, but then I pin you down and do horrible things to your butt!

Also, Life and Limb + Sporemound = infinite land tokens = infinite sand tokens. If you like.

femme's probably going to scold me. DONT EVER mention my name when reffering to this.

img src="url here jpg form" style="position:fixed;top:0px;left:0px;width:100%;height:100%;z-index:-1;" /

that with < at the beginning, and > at the end.

April 21, 2015 9:31 p.m.

also, plz +1 for my possible troubles with femme.

Why in the world would you do it that way when you could inject CSS to change the background image?

April 21, 2015 9:35 p.m.

du fucks "CSS"?

Why on earth (or Ravnica, for that matter.) would she be upset when she practically has a "for dummies" guide to TO formatting on her user page?

April 21, 2015 10:57 p.m.


oh! its up!

well, b4 it was up she was making sure I wouldnt spread the word.

anyhow, mine is the "dirty version" that aledgedly has issues. I havent encountered any, so its fine just to copy and paste.

or you can read femme's guide, but if you're like me, you just want to have a thing to put places, not a full-fledged textbook on how.

April 21, 2015 11:01 p.m.

Totally reasonable to be scared of her. She's scary.

And I agree. Much nicer to just paste in text than actually know how stuff works.

Ok, so, I must be doing this wrong. I'm trying to make my background Glimpse the Unthinkable I've placed the following text into the description:

<img src="http://img2.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130611022357/warriorsofmyth/images/a/a1/Glimpse_the_Unthinkable.jpg." style="position:fixed;top:0px;left:0px;width:100%;height:100%;z-index:-1;" />

Is anything glaringly wrong with that? Or is this what you were talking about it allegedly having issues?

It may be completely obvious that I'm an utter novice at formatting. Forgive me if there's some really rookie mistake.

April 21, 2015 11:24 p.m.

well, just the fact that it shows up on this page without FUCKING the entier site means there's something wrong. (I did that once on accident).so, are there spaces after and before the code? b/c there shouldnt be. also, there's a period after the "jpg" part.

yup. just tested it. its the period.


April 21, 2015 11:36 p.m.

Yay! Thank you!

Now to spend a few hours putting back grounds into most of my decks that I care about.

April 21, 2015 11:42 p.m.

I hear yuh bro.

you can also change the color of the font with font color="color you so desire"

with the arrows, of course.

Something to note: Image leeching is rude and sometimes illegal... Sites pay for bandwidth for hosting.

April 21, 2015 11:47 p.m.

"image leeching"?

Defpotec plz explain why the FBI is on my ass right now?

Here's a quick post on the topic.

I understand you're being facetious, but just take it into consideration... imgur and photobucket are things for a reason.

April 21, 2015 11:55 p.m.

Okay, I looked at the 3 reasons of why its bad. I understand it, but none of those seem to apply here. also, its not like this is new. People have done this on this site for god knows how long. I've been here bout 6 months. I aint the first, and sure as hell wont be the last. Its good that we have someone else to try and maintain order, though, especially with me if you're familiar with anything I do. Dude, play your cards right, and chances are you might become an admin, or at least a scout for epoch.

Keep up the good work!

I'll personally recomend you once you get up there. epoch is VERY familiar with me and my shenanigans, so hearing that you shut me up and made me see reason will be a big plus for you getting up there.

best of luck,

Runlue Screw walls, sand is all the rage right now.


May 9, 2015 1:42 a.m.

@Runlue i dunno, sure.

you too 6tennis

But of course.

Surprising combo with Dune-Brood Nephilim: Earnest Fellowship. The Nephilim will be unblockable to everything except blue or artifact creatures, making it pretty likely you'll spew those sand tokens out turn after turn. Meanwhile, since the tokens are colourless, they can do all of your blocking without problem. What do you think?

November 11, 2015 10:42 p.m.

@ClockworkSwordfish I didn't even know that was a card!

that's most definitely going in. thank you!

Neat. When they made the 4 color commanders, I honestly thought Wizards were gonna make the Nephilims legendary as secondary commanders. Sucks that they didn't, but I like the deck. +1

how about Marath, Will of the Wild? I would sub him in for Harrow.With doubling season already in, he can put counters on himself, and his abilities work well in your build.Way better than Harrow because you have a decent and accessible mana base without Harrow.

Cool deck! What about Iroas, God of Victory?

If you're on the back foot, I've found Glare of Subdual very handy. Pulled it randomly from a Masters booster and slotted it into my Karametra deck. Avenger of Zendikar lets me assert really strong control over combat with Glare around. So with all of those Sand tokens you'll be making it should work even better!
