Busse Reformed Absolutist

Hello everybody! And welcome to my profile. No clue how you ended up here, but you can tell me in the comment sections. Enjoy your stay!

I'm constantly working on this page, fine tuning the decks and trying to improve each's deck description, so if anything seems to be out of place please mention it and I'll have it fixed.
I also answer to 99% of the comments and suggestions, so feel free to leave your thoughts! There is no such thing as a stupid question...

I'm a Johnny/Timmy player; I enjoy deckbuilding to it's finest level (within budget) by trying to craft consistent machines... or sometimes just fun decks that revolve around a very odd card or mechanic... Yes, by that I mean Cephalid Constable. I know, it was hard.

My public collection of decks consists of a cycle of 5 mono-colored decks:

Creatures/Devotion: Xylophobia (Fear of the Forest)
Red Deck Wins: Luxuria (Hottest RDW)
Discard/Lock: Thiopental (Numbing Euthanasic)
Control/Bounce: Anfractuous (Unnecessarily Tortuous)
Allies/Midrange: Sodium Hypochlorite (White as Fuck!)

My not-so-public collection is about Commander decks, of which I just have 1. I intend to design a full dual-color cycle, so it might take a while until the next 10 are in a match-ready state:

Meren of Clan Nel Toth: Merendipity (Unfocused, but Deadly) Combat Ready
Bruna, Light of Alabaster: Bruna, Antithesis of Sympathy Work in Progress
Jor Kadeen, the Prevailer: Full Metal Artifact Design Phase
Kaervek the Merciless: Kaerdasdasd Design Phase
Xenagos, God of Revels: deck:xenaggression Design Phase
Vela the Night-Clad: Vela The Candle Design Phase
Melek, Izzet Paragon: Melek Decision Design Phase
Karametra, God of Harvests: Thesmophoria Work in Progress
Edric, Spymaster of Trest: Kraj Spy Design Phase
Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim: Home Sweet Exile Design Phase

See you around the site!

PS: Any upvote in any deck will be translated to the sacrifice of an innocent onion (or other vegetable... but mostly onions. Damn them!).

Hey Busse! I have a question to you and I think you are professional enough to answer me that. I like weird deck concepts that are not mainstream and now I have the idea to combine Diamond Kaleidoscope with Muraganda Petroglyphs. The goal is to create Prism Tokens to make them to 2/3 Creaturetokens. I am not sure about this and therefore I kindly ask for your advice. Thank you very much dude!

@clayperce Thanks for the love on the Red deck. Much appreciated.
And as for the other thing... that SoB had it coming hahahah
It's also good to know that it wasn't just me thinking that guy was being awfully rude.

Best regards, B

@redfishstud Hi man, sorry for the delay. Some things that can be altered are the addition of Momentary Blink in lieu of some Cloudshifts and Ghostways, and changing the Mirror Entityies or Gideon, Ally of Zendikar for some of the best blue allies... the one that copies and the one that mills. Can't remember the names right now, but leave me a message on the deck and I'll address the issue with precise names and quantities.
Thanks for commenting! Oh, and also some lands must be swapped, but that'pretty easy to achieve as long as you have the money to get the cool lands.

Hero's Downfall, DAMMIT

WotC is running out of card names

March 22, 2017 11:33 a.m.

Sorry. I meant Hero's Demise. Sleepy at that time.

As a B/G player, bounce and direct damage are unavailable to me. Few options not counting Ultimate Price.

We still don't have that many options to manage PW appropriately. And by that I dont mean "pay 1: exile target emblem or PW", but a sorcery or instant that removes counters or something like that wouldn't hurt the game.

March 21, 2017 11:09 p.m.

I agree, we are nowadays lacking cards that deal efficiently with PWs, and we have absolutely no answer to things like Emblems (See the Kiora U/G that creates octopus tokens... plainly sick).

I share your concern.

Cephalid spellweaver

Creature - Cephalid Wizard

Cephalid spells you cast cost less to cast.

You may cast blue sorcery spells as though they had Flash.

Forgotten long ago, the Cephalids plan silently their unexpected return.

1/3


Make a green or red zombie

Meren's Scepter

Legendary Artifact

General's Weaponry: Meren of Clan Nel Toth

Black creatures you control get +1/+1

: Create a 3/2 Black and Green Zombie creature with "Sacrifice this creature: All creatures get -2/-2"

"All of Jund will belong to me, or meet infinite decay..."


Do something like this but specifically for Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief

Sea-scoured Domains

Sorcery

Each player sacrifices a permanent, then creates a colorless Land token named "Island" with ": Add to your mana pool".

... after the earthquake, the queen said that nothing would happen...


Create a DECENT green dragon with CMC between 6 and 8. Impress us.

Eldrazi Hunter

Creature - Avatar

Devoid
Whenever Eldrazi Hunter attacks, you may exile target Eldrazi or colorless creature. If you do, put a +1/+1 counter on Eldrazi Hunter.

"After months, the Leylines realigned and Zendikar learned to defend itself from the Eldrazi; quite well, it seems."

Design an Eldrazi Planeswalker.

What about "admin tickets" for bugs/errors/other terrenal issues?

That way we could avoid flooding the forum with redundant posts when something bad happens.
If the issue is massive, the tickets are just dismissed after resolution

March 5, 2017 8:50 p.m.

Done. I forgot in the rush hahaha

Irsighos, Heir of Naya

Legendary Creature - Cat Cleric

: Target creature gets +1/+1 until end of turn.
: Irsighos deals 1 point of damage to target creature or player.
: You gain 1 life.

In times of need, you shall be protected.

Design a viable Eldrazi sliver. (Thinking of the first generation of Eldrazis).

Interesting topic, considering the increasing amount of cards released in the last 3-5 years. Nowadays choosing a particular function is quite the feat; taking into account several factors such as CMC, deck's curve, archetype, needs of a particular deck and meta.

Personally, when dealing with such a choice, CMC associated with function plays an important role (e.g. Gifted Aetherborn vs Vampire Nighthawk). The Aetherborn fits quite nicely in the aggressive 2nd turn, while the Nighthawk offers more versatility for just 1 more mana.
Everything is contextual; in the case of Reclamation Sage vs Indrik Stomphowler, the latter would fit better in most green decks because of its sheer size, but in the case of a reanimator deck such as Meren of Clan Nel Toth, the former is more useful as it can die more easily.

Card choices beyond the staples are rarely easy, but a part of what makes this game a great game.

Regards to all, B
