Argy Pyromancer

Chandra Roaring Flame

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.
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, folks, or everybody 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
These are the decks I have built from scratch, that I enjoy playing the most.

All of them have won a match, and most of them have won a tournament.

Triple A
Speedway Champions
Dirty Emerald
After Shock
Monothopters [Frontier]
Cast a Shadow [Frontier]
Brawling Eldrazi [Frontier Brawl]
General Tazri's Allies
I no longer offer my services to help people with Standard decks.
If you need help with your Standard deck, start a topic in the
Standard Deck Help forum.

I was going to reach out on chat, but I'm not sure if it's borked or if you've disabled it or what.

I was going to gush about my new build-around for this season (Sarkhan, Fireblood), wish you a Merry Solstice (though a little early), chat about brewing (I'm with you on it's almost impossible in Standard), and maybe chat about T/O ...

Be well, my friend. And please send me a chat if you get a chance.

Just saw Hostile Minotaur, and thought its title was a little redundant. Great flavor text though ...

I used to love coming here.

Cycling my decks, giving feedback to others, starting topics.

Then people started saying really personal things about me, and this became an uncomfortable place for me to visit.

I have a mental illness which makes it very difficult for me to express myself well.

I just don't spend much time, and certainly no money, around here any longer.

June 20, 2018 10:44 a.m.

Hey, guess what? You’re still my fave! :)

I know you don’t evaluate Standard decks anymore, but you still fancy messing around with just-for-fun/challenge/theme brews?

I’ve actually lately been venting my need to brew with the Standard card pool by making Brawl decks.

That's so cool about Eager Construct ... I had no idea it had been reprinted in BBD! Well done, Wizards! :-D

Hey Argy,

Normally I don't comment on anyone's profile, but your decks have been a great inspiration to me, and also pushed me to play Magic a lot. It's hard for me to read that you feel your value you brought was never fully appreciated, because I honestly think I didn't play MTG as much as I do now, if it wasn't for your inspiration.

So I just like to thank you, I appreciate what you've done, the decks you've build, the help you gave and everything!

You’re not alone. Dragons of Tarkington was my favourite set too. Dragonlord Ojutai was the first foil mythic I’d ever opened, and it still holds a special place in my heart.

Sorry, I don't help with decks any more.

I don't like the way the mods on this site treat me, and I realised that by helping people on this site, I was improving it for them.

I'll take a look at one of your decks.

I'm only doing that for a select few.

You have a couple of Creatures that can do extra stuff if you used more than one colour. I will list them and the colour you would need to add:

Knight of Grace -

Shalai, Voice of Plenty -

Your deck has a bit of a Knight theme going on, so I could help you change your mana base to , and you could add some Knight of Malice and some extra Knight of Grace to your deck. I would go with 4x of each.

You could also add some Josu Vess, Lich Knight, and the excellent History of Benalia.

In my opinion you don't get much value out of these cards (or they aren't legal):

1x Cathar's Shield
1x Gilded Lotus
1x Mox Amber
1x Sensei's Divining Top
1x Board the Weatherlight

I would replace them all.

I think you said you are playing this casually with friends. What kind of decks are they playing?

You have to build for your "meta", which means you have to build your deck so that it can deal with what everyone else in your group is playing.

You have some illegal cards in this deck.

If you take a look towards the bottom of this page you will seem them listed like this:

Illegal cards Cathar's Shield, Sensei's Divining Top

Those cards aren't in Standard at the moment, which means you can't use them in a Standard deck.

There is a website called What's in Standard? which explains which card sets are currently legal for Standard.

Looking at your deck the first advice I can give you is to use some utility lands.

These are lands that do other things, as well as tapping for mana. You usually use them in the late game, when you have plenty of land.

Since your deck is mono-white you can afford to use some lands that tap for , as you're unlikely to get colour screwed.

I would do something like this with your lands:

1x Arch of Orazca (excellent for late game draw - don't forget that lands are also permanents)

3x Field of Ruin (use this to screw up your friends by taking away a land they rely on)

13x Plains

4x Shefet Dunes (if you need to tap this for it should only be for a couple of times - the trade off is worth it)

3x Zhalfirin Void (use land to give you Scry)

I would take all the cards out of your description. You don't need them listed, as we can see them in your deck.

What would be more useful in your description is what you want your deck to do, and what you'd like help with.

If you want to see how a really GOOD description is written, take a look at
Jhoira's Crew

That's one of my decks. I don't apologise for saying it has a good description.

Please don't write a "primer" for your deck. IMO those tend to be REALLY long, and no one has a lot of time to trawl through them.

You put the deck slug between square brackets, EXACTLY like this:


If you click the last little button on the left side of your deck, it will give you the deck slug, already between the brackets.

That way you can just copy and paste it.

flinjager123 look for the button on your Profile that says "Add Deck", cut and paste the list you have made, using this format:

24x Plains
1x Amaranthine Wall

Save it, and it will automatically turn it into a deck which you can link to.

Do all the tutorials on your Profile and they will teach you how to link cards and decks, and other helpful ways to use this site.

It's much easier for us to help with your deck if it's not just a list of cards.

Yeah I agree that Tezzeret the Schemer and Yawgmoth's Vile Offering aren't doing much.

When I've been testing this the matches go for a long time.

Is that the reason that you're not getting many 2-0 scores?

Don't feel too bad about losing to a newbie.

They often have a surprising advantage because their decks aren't tuned to the meta, so they can surprise regular players.

Tag me on your deck once you build it.

I don't check this site much these days, but if I see the link I'll take a look.

One of the best times I had playing Magic was with friends around the kitchen table.

Just 60 card decks, multiplayer.

I made this deck for that group:
