AtomicEmpire Overlord

Hey there. My name is Thomas, and I'm a competitive Magic player from North Carolina. I am on the road to becoming a pro.

Before you explore my profile page some more and potentially look at my decks, let me say a couple things. First, if I ever come off as knowing absolutely nothing about this game, please keep in mind that I am a newer player. So if you are going to say that I suck as a deck builder from a shitty deck I built 6 months ago, please give me another chance. I openly admit that I am often wrong, more that I'd like to be wrong about anything. For example, if I say that a card you consider good is bad, and list the wrong reasoning, please let me know or give me a few weeks to figure it out. Much appreciated. Secondly, if you have an issue with me as a person, or you don't like a comment I made on a deck or on your wall, or even your binder, please come talk to me instead of straight-up blocking me. I am willing to maturely talk about anything you don't like about me, and attempt to correct it if I agree with you, and probably even if I don't. You can of course just block me, but that doesn't accomplish anything except having us both leave the encounter with a bad taste in our mouths. And furthermore, I might also turn around and do the same thing to another user, which isn't very fair to them.

I am primarily a Esper player, and you are welcome to ask me any questions about the colors, my deck, and other Esper archetypes. I've also played a lot of Jeskai in the past, so I'm pretty knowledgeable about wR as well.

Favorite Color:

Favorite Guild: w

Favorite Shard: wb

Favorite Clan: wR

I'm fairly active on here, and I ask for and give advice frequently. I am best with wb decks and Control decks in general because that is what I play.

Please feel free to take a look at any of my decks, particularly Grim Reality (Developing Competitive) as it is my pride and joy.

I am Blue/White

I'm both orderly and rational. I value control, information, and order. I love structure and hierarchy, and will actively use whatever power or knowledge I have to maintain it. At best, I am lawful and insightful; at worst, I am bureaucratic and tyrannical.

I wish you all the best topdecks. See you around!

Thanks! That will probably find its way into the main deck eventually.

You guys know the drill. If you don't have any suggestions, please leave me an Upvote.

Burning-Tree Emissary will give you good ramp. I'm not sure about your budget, but Lightning Bolt is the premier burn spell for the Modern format. GL for your deck! +1

I'm not playing more Revs. Secure is not only a finisher, it is also a stabilization tool. Sphinx's Revelation is a good card, but I'm not playing more than 2.

Well I do play a buncha Sphinx's Rev!

Any thoughts on upping the Leyline count TheAnnihilator?

@rothgar13, TheAnnihilator,

Since I now mainboard one copy of Blessed Alliance, could the BA in the sideboard become a Celestial Purge or a third Leyline of Sanctity? I'm leaning toward the Leyline because of how bad our Burn MU is.

Wow... No one has been on this in weeks! Wondering it it's better to build Esper Control or Grixis Control without AV. Thanks!

Condemn isn't bad. Death's Shadow is winnable enough without it though, so I don't really see the need here.

I've brewed a Grixis Control deck of my own, and I'm looking for ways to remove Ancestral Vision. Thoughts?

Thanks so much!

Hey Roth, I fixed up Esper Control if you wanna take a look. Thanks!
