Sweet thanks! Before I buy though.. Can you send me pictures through email? It's not that I don't believe you about condition, just might as well check something out before a larger purchase/trade. Is that your personal email you sent me?

Doubling Season is a must-have, and it fits real well (price wise) with the nonfoil, plus I'd like to have a replacement Goyf just so I have one. I could use a few cards for the superfriends EDH deck I'm building, but they'd have to see what they are.

Well, I see 2 things I'd be interested in. Your wasteland and SOB&M. In addition to the goyf I have an EM Jace I could trade as well.

Would you add a Gitaxian Probe on your end?

From my end i would give up either clique or SFM but not both to consider a trade. I dont want to give up 2 solid legacy staples for a snapcaster

Ahh, okay. Well, there's not a wile lot listed that I was seeing. If you keep your Trops, lemme know. I'm down to trade for one of those. I'm not going to trade those cards anytime soon I think, as they're in my doomsday commander deck and it is currently the only "real" competitive deck that I have. So they will stay for a while. Just let me know.

That's ok, let me know if you ever get tired of that Arid Mesa :)

April 11, 2017 12:49 p.m.

hey there, were you still interested in a potential trade? No worries either way, but I am still interested in the Arid Mesafoil icon and Goblin Guide

April 10, 2017 2:41 p.m.

Thanks for the trade! Everything came through just fine!

I don't see anything that immediately adds up to ~$180. Thanks for your time though. As mentioned; let me know if you come across more Tarns ;)

Hey Hey,

So my situation is that I have three edh decks that use a scalding tarn but; only own the one exp. It's double-sleeved in my #1 deck. Rather than swap it between the three I just have a backward-facing card as placeholders in the other two.

The EXP is ~$180, and the two foil MM3 are ~$80 each. So it's close.

I have big ticket things I want like Mana Drain and Imperial Recruiter, but I can look through your binder as well. Let me know if you'll consider trading the tarns.


April 8, 2017 5:37 p.m.

Yeah I get hyped up very easily, nonetheless the Plains will look great in the deck! Thanks

April 4, 2017 2:56 p.m.

Thanks for the trade and the extras dude!

I wanted to let you know I was super excited about that foil Plains. I always run matching basics in most of my decks(same artwork) and I had gotten all my matching plains a few days prior and the foil you sent me is the same artwork I'm using for the deck. So cheers! Very awesome!

April 4, 2017 12:41 p.m.

Hi there,

Sorry for the late response, I don't get notifications on my binder wall. That sounds like a good trade so far, would you include...

Total: $67.00

for my Scalding Tarn (52.00) + other stuff from my binder?

Yeah, I wish it would update existing cards :/

Randomdeath says... #19

I took a look at the pictures you sent and they still look pretty good to me. So not the question begs did you find anything in my binder for them?

March 27, 2017 10:33 p.m.

Randomdeath says... #20

Ok. My email is goth_rocker18@Yahoo.com

March 27, 2017 6:21 p.m.

Randomdeath says... #21

Well I'm sad to hear that. Is the paradox engine and cryptic off the table as well?

March 27, 2017 1:16 p.m.

Randomdeath says... #22

Got the binder updated so you can take a look at your convenience

March 27, 2017 10:48 a.m.

Randomdeath says... #23

Sounds good I also got some stuff over the weekend so I do have some unlisted stuff

Hey mate,

I would definitely consider selling them. Im currently at a conference so I will get back to you with more details when I get some more free time

April 25, 2017 4:58 p.m.

Are you only looking to sell or is trading an option as well?

What would the defense for Ancestral Vision be? It gets me three cards at my upkeep and is obviously more card advantage. However, it is "one off" effect that needs to wait. My defense for think twice would be the added flexibility on when to cast as well as the ability to draw and miracle on my oppenent's turn

April 23, 2017 12:44 p.m.

What price are you looking for?

April 23, 2017 10:32 a.m.

My promo at pre-release was Hazoret the Fervent and I have no plans at all for it, anyone looking to trade for it?

Ever forget that Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded has an ultimate? I have.......

Im honestly all for Glorious End and trying to make it work. Maybe thats just too much optimism but some people are very creative when it comes to avoiding these negative drawbacks

Unfortunately I have none of the cards that you are looking for

April 20, 2017 5:27 p.m.

Well at 9.99 a pack, what are the heavy hitters going to be?

April 20, 2017 2:25 p.m.

Mystic Speculation was something I thought about a lot as I just have two sitting around, I may try out two copies as with thassa it isnt something I need, but in a crunch the dig is just so hard to pass up.

As for Crucible of Worlds, the synergy is nice, but I just feel like it would be a wasted slot. As a control deck we need to stall and it can help that cause, but I feel like there are other things the deck would want to do.

Blessed Alliance is a good idea though. It may not crack my main, but I need to test against the field to see if that holds up. Im also considering a Blood Moon strategy in the side for the odd matchups (control, maybe even D.Shadow since they dont like to get basics until late in the game) and the obligatory Crumble to Dust to nix Tron which Blood Moon aids in as well. I was thinking to add Kor Firewalker or even Bonfire of the Damned for aggro matchups, and then the other flex spots would be meta dependent. One big issue to play against is Lingering Souls though so finding a good answer for that should be paramount as well because once they know its miracles, they will just hold up souls until we Entreat if they are smart

So with my list Narset Transcendent's pseudo scry works very nicely with Serum Visions. When she can't grab a land, its comforting to not blindly vision draw a miracle so at least I know what I am getting and know that the scry could set up the miracle. And with that ability too, you dont have to put the card in your hand, if its a miracle you can feel free to not reveal it and leave it on top. In conjunction with Thassa, God of the Sea, she really is able to do work because we can scry the lands we dont need later on. I wish we could scry 3 though lol, here is to hoping we get Jace, the Mind Sculptor unbanned and can Brainstorm our way to the top.

While playtesting, I generally think that 6-7 lands is where I want to be in play at any one time, with that in mind I often do find myself at 1-2 cards in hand by turn 5. However, if I was fortunate enough to drop both thassa and Narset, they act as a nice engine to generally build your hand up quickly as well as making any other draw effect more efficient (no blind pulls generally). With Think Twice my only issue comes with the flashback. While the draw is nice, the three mana is a pain if I'm miracle triggering Entreat the Angels end step of opponents turn because if I float around 6-7 lands, that means I will only Entreat for two at most in most scenarios. Its great for terminus though and for your list could be especially flexible with Temporal Mastery as it would be a five mana investment at that point.

Disrupting Shoal is honestly one of my favorite cards in the deck though. It has the unfortunate drawback of just being dead sometimes as it is no true Force of Will, but in the late game its efficient because if I have 6 land, I can counter any 4 or less spell which in modern is most things (minus tron and eldrazi). For the early game it can be nice to for just making sure you protect from Thoughtseize or even disrupt the pestering 3 mana planeswalkers. Usually I will use it in a snag where I drop Thassa, God of the Sea turn 3, and then I will usually have another thassa in hand to pitch. So at least in my build, it becomes efficient because in the 3 and 4 slot, I have extra Thassa and Narset to pitch to it so it isn't really ever a true loss since they would be dead cards anyway, at least thats how I can justify it being "efficient" for some flexibility. And any time I have a late game Spell Pierce, it at least gives that another way to be useful. Hope this helps with a little bit of insight into each of these!
