Boza Pauper Expert

Hello World, I am Boza and I like deckbuilding! I am every color (but have a burning hatred for red) and I like every deck type (though I hate being simply aggressive). Pauper format is my main forte.

Every deck I build is generally unique and relies on the tried-and-true method of "I want to build around this so effing bad!!"

Please check my binder for trades (currently under construction). For trading purposes, keep in mind I am currently located in Bulgaria, Europe, so no trades with the USA for me :(

Both of the people I was working with couldn't buy the cards until next week, so if you're still interested in buying the lot, I'll ship to Europe for you. Let me know soon, please.

I am personally pushing for more Standard events to get those prizes. Isn't Sealed just "participate in a Prerelease"?

You already mentioned that you have had bad experiences shipping overseas. I can completely understand that. Besides, I managed to draft a Gearhulk yesterday and I got a couple more of the cards on the list.

Thanks for the cordial offer, but it is better someone in the US gets it.

In the last 3 or so years, FNMs have always been Modern, except one week of Standard every month. After the Standard events failed to fire pretty much every time, we switched to all-modern FNMs. People going to the store have refused to keep up with standard every year or so.

We had a couple of leagues, so I guess that counts, but close to 0 Constructed standard.

The spell will cost .

Part of the process of casting a spell is figuring out the cost of the spell.

(cost of the spell)+(cost increases)-(cost decreases) = total cost of the spell

So, in this case it will be + - =

I currently have a combo-focused Nekusar and a control-focused Scaly fish council-woman from Ravnica.

I want to build an aggro deck to complete the trifecta that is not blue, but have run into a wall when trying to brew with Saskia, which is the commander I want to have.

Anything not on the above list is acceptable. I think some amount of group hate is acceptable and necessary.

Please make suggestions on the deck itself, makes it much easier to incorporate a larger list.

Bribing people into a format seems like a bad idea, but hey - free very cool full art lands.

I built GU Aetherflux Reservoir + Aetherworks Marvel deck spicifically in anticipation of these events.

Now just to convince someone to play Standard! (my shop has held 0 standard events since I started going there, aside from Gameday).

Saskia the Unyielding is an awesome commander. But I have no clue how to build her. So I am requesting your help.

All cards in the deck will be suggested by you. The only rules:

No Land Destruction
No infinite combos
No infect

These are the rules in my LGS, so I want to abide by them. I am adding an optional #4 and #5:

On a budget - cheaper cards will have an advantage, but if a card is really worth it...
No tokens - don't like carrying them around, but if a card is really worth it...

I am hoping we end up with more than 100 cards so that there will be community trimming.

You are in a bind - the decks you like to play are not decks that people want to play against. Granted, everyone in Commander tries to do degenerate stuff.

I think Saskia the Unyielding is your friend. It can run a gamut of options with aggro being a chief strategy, but it can easily play any role.

I just saw a list online in SCG articles, I think, that ran mana ramp and 30+ legendary creatures. Friendly, thematic and non-opporessive.

From gatherer:

4/26/2014: Unlike other Aura spells, an Aura spell with bestow isnt countered if its target is illegal as it begins to resolve. Rather, the effect making it an Aura spell ends, it loses enchant creature, it returns to being an enchantment creature spell, and it resolves and enters the battlefield as an enchantment creature.

If you are withholding Modern rules, Ponder is also banned in Modern.

I have about a dozen decks built already, ranging from mono R burn to 5 color control. I am now building Big Combrei, but that requires ALL the legendaries and I am only halfway there - still about 8 legendaries more.

I am super un-excited for MM3. It provides nothing to the game, has very stale drafting that is worse than pretty much every normal set and Masters sets do not help overall prices of the format at all.

If I want a good drafting experience, I will choose to cube. If I want a better value for my money in modern cards, I would buy singles.

So, buying singles for my cube > MM3.

Impending Doom is a 5 mana 5/5 flier with "At the end of your turn, you lose 1 life". I would not say it is really abyssal, which makes it so that you cannot win the game.

In the context of Eternal, it is a very effective flier with a very cheap cost.

My favorite is Umbren Reaper - 5 mana 5/1 flier with the text "When this dies, you gain 5 life and your opponent loses 5 life". I call it the uber Siege Rhino.

If I said I want to get everything (well maybe besides the Flayer), are you willing to ship across the pond to Europe?

February 21, 2017 10:53 a.m.

Yes.

For these types of effects, the game uses LKI or Last Known Information - the permanent is viewed as it had existed last on the battlefield. Since cards like Slagwurm Armor and Siegecraft confer their bonus to the creature, an Arbor Elf with said Armor would be 1/7 as per LKI.

Wait till MM3. It seems that Snappy is being reprinted there.

Additionally, Thousand-Year Elixir will help your Arbor Elfs and ilk to be "free" spells that increase your storm count.

Small creatures + Paradox Engine + Glimpse of Nature or Lifecrafter's Bestiary seems to be the way to go for me.
