(Not even Mayael the Anima can't sing an Aria to save her life anymore.)

NOTICE BEFORE QUESTION: Initially, this was meant to be a Mayael the Anima deck all around; even conforming to newer; & better standards. Then, after several thoughts over her, I wanted to make a WAY better Mayael the Anima -Deck. Atla Palani, Nest Tender was just that. Saccing Eggs to find some of the Most Powerful that Mayael can also do. But I believe that after what I get after all this, Mayael will only be an Afterthought. Questions? Well, here we go...

Q1: In terms of Range of Power; The Magic No. is 4 Power. Namely Stuff w/ Great Effects; 4+ Powered Powerhouses, & just great effects. What do you think is the best out of the ones Printed as of currently? There are so many, I can't mention them all...

Q2: Oh, almost forgot. Assuming the Sac Engines needed to make Egg Tokens that create Monsters w/ incredible power, what exactly would you want to cut & proceed? Also: SACRIFICES MUST BE MADE. (As of this update: this has 127 Cards now.)

Q3: While I've an optimal amount of Instants, I have much fewer SORCERIES. Does this deck need anymore of them, or is it just fine?

Q4 FINAL: The whole purpose of this deck is to bring an entire army to the table in ONE TURN. Since this is /Naya/AGGRO, I want to know your thoughts for how to do it through sacking Eggs & bringing Fat to life in Adult Form. Based on these terms; how would you do this?

Finally, I have to ask: Am I doing too many Help Wanted Deck Help Threads? I'm just curious; that & I couldn't remember what I was initially going to say; that, & I'm apparently doing too little to help my case of trying all I can to help my problems; & from there, for such great people like you.

Hope this helps! :D

It isn't that you ask too many questions, it is that you seem to be unable to focus. In your attempt to seem witty or endearing you come off as rambling and a chore to speak with. I have read pretty many of your threads because I was interested in the subject, but never responded it seems exhausting to interact with you. If you are honestly interested in why you seem to generate so much negative interaction, let's look at this post.

In the area before we get to the questions there are good points and bad. You start out with a deck link, which is great. You then have a parenthetical that is superfluous and poorly worded. It looks like you tried editing it and forgot to proofread afterward. In the "notice" you could have reduced the entire thing to "This deck was originally Mayael, but switched to Atla because her ability is better."

The 5 "questions" could also be greatly reduced. Question 1&3 can be combined and reduced to "One of the major advantages of Atla is that we can get things power 4 or less. What are some with great abilities that people like?" They may list off ones you are already considering, but that is just confirmation that they are worth consideration. The place for the list is in the maybe board of the deck. Questions 2&4 likewise could be combined and condensed into "I am currently over 100 cards and need some recommendations on what to cut, especially if we are to fit in some lower powered creatures." Question 5 could also be shortened to "I am worried about my number of sorceries. Is three too few?"

Everything after the questions is unneeded here. You could start another thread to ask about combos. String together the reduced essence of each point with some transitions, season sparingly with your personality (since I feel that my words may be too bland for you) and voila you have a concise question that will generate positive interaction.

@Gidgetimer: Well, if I can't focus on such aspects, I am personally desperate to think to myself as quickly as possible: "Why?" Also, I obviously didn't mean to be endearing; much less so "Witty". Another piece of the puzzle removed: Never throw in the Extras...

But based on your comment; doing only what would be 3Q & nothing Higher (What if I had 7 Questions; ALL UNIQUE; my Superfriends deck has this kind of potential!), & basically reduce everything in the Before Section to one sentence. You got some decent ideas, but what to do to follow this:

BEFORE = One Sentence, NOT One Paragraph

Questions = "DON'T CREMATE ME!" (Easily reiterated as 3 Questions MAX)

EXTRA = A fate that it NEVER deserved.

I'm really sorry for this post as a whole; but I just dunno what ELSE I did wrong. In fact, I've a question to ask elsewhere.

I'll take your advice, but your post seems as if it can push me too far away from what I am allowed to do (I could never be more sorry than you'd tried.). Now leave me in peace; Redemption is just another kind of Perfection; IMPOSSIBLE TO ACHIEVE. What's wrong with imperfection?

It’s just that your post is so long and winding that the average person could get bored. If a person is bored by your post they’re not going to get to the end never mind contribute something meaningful to your actual line of questioning.

@MindAblaze: ...

Well, I guess I'm going to have to mention my problems in "You-Know-Where."; & if senior staff just says a meager "Just don't do it." in any combination Grammarly Possible, I'll just explain my problems anyway. My window of redemption is closing at a far more alarming rate than assumed. I'll do my decklists after; though I actually wanted two threads closed here on the other hand:

I gave up on the poor Gobs; It is replaced w/ a Mono-R Burn deck after realizing how much damn better than before it became.

This was the original version of this exact same Deck Help Thread for this deck; 4 Weeks w/o a post...

I completely understand if this is the wrong place to put in these. But I do at least want these topics to the Blind Eternities if need be; otherwise, where to suggest these two to that section?

Alright, enough Shod. I just want to resume this after the revisions...

I was just trying to be helpful bud, don't take it too hard. Just remember that time is a resource and the less resources one has to invest in helping the more likely they are to. I am going to look at the deck later, but just wanted to put my earlier comment out there. You seem to have a unique mind and I am not trying to pressure you to conform, I am simply letting you know that concise questions drive helpful interaction.

OK. I guess I'll take that to mind. Though I have to update my other stuff first. Plans I indeed have...

I'll see what some others think though...

Back. I never thought I'd say it, but I've another Question to add. After all, this is meant to be a deck that can Summon a whole Creature Count in one combo. Since Staff of Domination , Sword of the Paruns , & Umbral Mantle are all canned, I'll be adding something else here to backup this goal. That said, I ponder if it is even possible to loop until all Fat are in play in one turn. How would you approach this, & literally fill your arena w/ Power 4 or More Creatures? I wonder...

I'll add it as a Q4 to boot. Any questions?

MASSIVE UPDATE: I'm currently trying to remodel decks of my own kind after they reach the 100 card mark. This thread actually has one in question done after all hell has been traversed.

So, if the Senior Staff agrees, this actually needs to be closed after this was at sheer completion. Is anyone in agreeance? I'm already making a legitimate Description for the new version anyway. Not much else one can do otherwise... :)
