I love building decks! Playing them is a secondary joy.

I also enjoy pretty art, interesting and funny flavour text, and foil cards.
This game, and its mythology, fascinates me.

Most of the decks I have created here I own in physical form.
If you need help with your Standard deck, feel free to hit me up for advice.

The deck doctor is in!

Be aware that, although I playtest decks before giving feedback, it is not my job to test your deck against all the ones that are difficult for it to beat.

I will give you suggestions about how to improve your deck, then it is up to you to extensively playtest it and refine it.

Leave a link to your deck on my Profile.
Referring to people who play Magic, or users on this site, using terms like he, him, or guys, insinuates that only males play Magic.

Even if you didn't mean it that way.

It can feel extremely weird to be referred to by male pronouns, if you are female.

Try using terms like s/he, her/him, people, or folks when referring to users, so the game doesn't end up feeling like a boys' club.

I reserve the right NOT to give assistance to people who can't be bothered to use gender neutral language.
All suggestions made for my decks will be considered. That doesn't mean they will automatically be adopted, no matter how special you think they/you are.

I see decks very differently than most people. I know what suits my play style, and my local meta.

I don't follow deck building "formulas".

Think before making a suggestion. If you are going to insist up front that it is the ONLY thing that can make my deck better, or make snide comments about my choice of cards/theme, or if you are going to be a jerk in general, then save us both the trouble and just go away.

Do some research before pointing out that my cards aren't Standard legal.
I usually know What's In Standard
I help with ONLY Standard decks.

I've returned to Magic after a short hiatus. It remains to be seen if I will stick around.

Oh, and thank you!

That's fine giving me back the token. Maybe throw a bonus one my way sometime.

As for the Dino deck; I'm probably getting rid of some higher cmc creatures for a playset of the new R/W dino. Also, the one white Dino that prevents all but one damage looks promising.

Thank you!

Heyyy I wanted to swing through and give you a digital high-five for our shared use of the html language!

I went to a vocational/trade high school 2001-05 majoring in computer tech. There we were taught coding, graphic design, and how to disassemble/reassemble desktop computers. I've filtered into a career of marketing and sales and still use that knowledge today.

Thanks for the love! Don't let anyone douse the fire inside you, Argy!

What more do you think needs to be done to RaWr Dinos to make it better for Standard Showdowns?

Sounds like Prerelease was cool; good for StuBi! And that deck sounds insane!

I've actually been messing around with a super-jank Artifact deck online ... after the bans today, I'm surprisingly excited about playing Standard again.

If you get a chance I'd of course LOVE your thoughts on the deck: UR Modules (RIX). If you don't, no worries at all!

Glad to see you're back on the site.

clayperce says... #11

Not actually sure if I'm doing Prerelease or not. Probably not tbh, because I do 2HG for fun and my normal 2HG partner is away. And though I really enjoy Sealed, I'm very Spikey about it and I haven't had (or rather, made) the time I need to study RIX as much as I'd like.

Hope you and StuBi have an awesome time though!

Hi. Sad to discover that you've recently quit the game for a time. Your absence leaves a sizable hole in the TappedOut community that even I, someone who doesn't often interact with you and doesn't even play standard, noticed.

It's disheartening to see that one asshole on the internet has caused you to quit magic. Though it may be more, I have no idea. As a male feminist, I hate seeing people leave things they love because users like that one and situations such as these.

I hope you'll be back soon. The void left by your departure can't be filled by anyone else. Magic needs more women like you, many more, in fact, to grow and flourish. If one day I'm fortunate enough to have a wife and daughters, I'll want them to have female role models like you in the MTG community to relate to and look up to.

Don't let the few internet assholes distract you from the many that respect and admire you.

I look forward to the day you're ready to come back. The jerks will still be here yes, but so will your friends, myself included.

Until then

Champ

From a admirer, You're one of my favorite names to see on this website and I'm sad to know that you are quitting the game, but I can understand the reasoning behind it. Which makes me even more sorry as I am a male gamer and a feminist. I feel let down by the mtg community to lose a good player like you. I want you to know I always respect your opinions and the way you gave advice to people on this site and the advice itself. I always find myself seeing if I can give advice on a deck and see you already made your way there and that I learned something new along side the player your were helping. I wish you the best in all your endeavors and a better year for you after this rough start. (If you want to delete this off the wall I understand. I just couldn't find another way to tell you.)

If you want me to take a look at one of your decks you need to leave a clickable link to it on my Profile.

It's difficult to advise which colours are going to be strong this season, as it's still early and we haven't seen the Pro Tour yet.

I advise people to be a bit cautious with Walk the Plank as Merfolk are in a much stronger place this time around.

January 21, 2018 7:05 p.m.

I'll think you'll find that user is probably somebody's secondary account.

Made just for trolling.

Unfortunately was heavily nerfed recently with the banning of Attune with Aether.

Most of the decent builds relied on , so that really hurt them.

Pirates are usually , , or , so that doesn't really work with your Planeswalker either.

Your best bet would be to work out how to stay alive until Vraska, Relic Seeker hits the field, and then protect her until she wins the game. Which she can do quite handily on her own.

You could try using some cards that destroy Opponent Creatures, and some big beaters to keep your Opponent busy. There are a lot of beefy Dinos around at the moment. They cost peanuts.

Your Vraska, Relic Seeker isn't going to be seen much unless you tutor for her. There is a 4 drop that just came out that does that.

There are some cheap removal spells. A couple that your deck would REALLY need, however, aren't. They are Fatal Push and Vraska's Contempt.

Standard is not a poor person's game, I'm afraid to say. Unless you are some kind of genius deck builder.

If you put a deck together tag me in the Comments and I'll take a look at it.

Best of luck.

ghode which cards would you suggest?

I have mentioned that I am considering Duress and Lost Legacy.

What Control deck were you playing against, so I can practice?

Also, what does "MU" mean?

If you're interested, I made a new deck.

Flame-Chained

Couldn't help myself, with the new Minotaur Planeswalker being spoiled.

Feels pretty solid, although I don't know how it will fare against Ux Control.

No need to Comment on it, just thought you might want to see what direction I'm heading in since my Worthy Minotaurs deck was rendered unplayable by the bans.

It's taking me a while to playtest this deck, as there are so many micro interactions for me to get my head around.

I asked if you wanted that Token back and you said not right now.

Be a bit clearer in future.

I've gifted you an extra one, in return.

I would recommend that you don't gift Tokens in future, if you aren't prepared for the recipient to use them.

More feedback.


I've mucked around with your Merfolk deck a bit more.

Is Heroic Intervention outside your budget? I think one of those would be better than Enter the Unknown.

I would also rather see 2x Cancel than Aether Meltdown.

You can use gatherer.wizards.com to very easily search the database for cards that have the properties you are searching for.

Kizmetto just a little tip on leaving feedback, which I've done a lot of.

  1. You need to stay within the parametres of what the deck is trying to achieve.

  2. Suggesting cards that MIGHT work is not very helpful, and ends up creating the enormous list of cards that you have here.

  3. What is more helpful is explaining how a different card would make the current deck work better.

Mentioning this to help you leave excellent feedback in future, and because I am StuBi's partner. He showed my his deck because he was overwhelmed with the amount of cards that had been suggested.

TappedOut is not letting me leave Comments on decks, at the moment.

Below is what I would say about your Merfolk deck.


I've done some initial tests, and the deck has been doing well.

It's a bit tricky to test decks thoroughly at the moment because we won't know what the Tier 1 decks will be until after the Pro Tour.

Please link decks like this, in future:

U/G merfolk standard

The link you posted on my Profile was not clickable, and actually led to the playtest page for that deck.

I can't comment on your Dino deck, so I'll try here instead.


Thanks for the token. Would you like it back? I have heaps.


With your deck you have 19 Creatures that are 5 CMC or more.

In my opinion that is WAY too many.

You would need ways to hold on until that point in the game, or you will easily be overrun by your Opponent.

I would decide which Dinos at that end of the scale will make it most likely for you to win (no more than seven), then put some Dinos with large Toughness in the earlier CMC slots.

Top marks for gender inclusiveness, dthoreson813.

January 17, 2018 8:01 a.m.

Thanks.

Someone wants me to edit a deck they have shared with me, but the edit button doesn't show up for me on the deck.

Here is the build for StuBi that I'm working on.

Lime and Salt

It just needs four cards to come out, but I need to test a bit more to work out which ones.

January 16, 2018 8:33 a.m.

FNM was becoming a LOT less fun to play if you brewed.

There was just no way to beat the top decks so netdecking ALWAYS won.

I can't remember that happening for a while.

It was part of the reason I gave up playing.

If it's possible now to win through building, then FNM looks more interesting to me.


dthoreson813 Mountains work for colour, but aren't a great replacement for Ramunap Ruins as they don't give you the late game direct damage.

They aren't actually a good replacement, for that reason.

Unsure as to whether you were just trying to be funny. If so, carry on.
