DarkLaw Deckling

Lover of value and combos. The more colors/value a deck gets without going infinite, the more I like it. So say, reanimator, Ad Nauseum, and cascade decks. A guy called SaffronOlive also made a sweet Seance deck in modern.

I sometimes make competitive decks in Standard & Modern, and casual decks for EDH, but rarely post them to TappedOut.

Cute banner that doesn't work for you for some reason.

Not gonna lie, I don't like the Guay basics. Any of them.

Please don't hurt me.

I much prefer the other basics from C16 - I remember fondly the firefly swamp and shooting star basics.

On second thought, while still good compared to most of the products Wizards does, it's still probably just more worth it to order the new singles you need and forget getting the actual precons.

More effort though.

Not Apprentice Wizard actually, Merchant of Secrets.

Decklists are up. I don't think that any deck is stellar, but they're all great- nothing more, nothing less. There are some really odd choices (Apprentice Wizard? Opportunity?), though these are more than compensated for by some really good reprints (Utvara Hellkite, Decree of Pain, Mirari's Wake, etc.).

I'm probably just picking up dragons and wizards, as well as perhaps a Mirari's Wake by itself.

By the way, looking at the manabase foe dragons made me chuckle. Aside from the obvious (Command Tower, Path of Ancestry), it's really simple. One of each tri, one of each vivid, 3 of each basic, except mountains of which there are twice as much.

The lists won't be out for another 2 hours yet.

It also immediately occurred to me after I made the post that it goes infinite with Time Stretch.

Btw Izzet Chemister puts the cards you cast off of it back into the graveyard. You can keep recasting things for as long as it remains on the battlefield. So it's hilarious with Cruel Ultimatum in 1v1.

Someone needs to make a Russian roulette deck already.

August 10, 2017 2:47 p.m.

Btw if nobody's mentioned this, there are Marchesa, the Black Rose and Apprentice Necromancer reprints.

Portal Mage


Creature - Human Wizard


If Portal Mage enters the battlefield during the declare attackers step, you may reselect the player or planeswalker that target attacking creature attacks.

Actually, since I own an Ixidron, I should know that this works normally. I just got a bit confused with transform and flip.

August 10, 2017 12:59 p.m.

I was actually more concerned about returning Mairsel to the battlefield face-down. How does that work?

August 10, 2017 12:52 p.m.

Any idea how Shorecrasher Elemental works with Mairsel? Could you actually return Mairsel at all? Is he face-up?

Myojins will never be viable in commander, but will always be "viable". But it is a neat auto-include in an O-Kagachi 5-color Kamigawa-tribal deck.

August 10, 2017 12:39 p.m.

I hope that Kindred Boon is also in dragons, but I bet it isn't, since they already had 2 Kindred cards in their deck. If I had to guess, it would be in cats.

It's a shame because O-Kagachi. Plus, I'm still sad that the indestructibility isn't a quality inherent to the counter.

August 10, 2017 9:23 a.m.

Ah, I missed the bit about home plane.

August 10, 2017 9:19 a.m.

Ob Nixilis, Unshackled should be on the same plane as Ob Nixilis, the Fallen (Zendikar) since that was before he regained his spark.

August 10, 2017 6:24 a.m.

Pretty neat. Totally not busted with Eldrazi spawn/scion tokens. It's basically an infinitely worse Skullclamp.

The cover card for wizards was unofficially leaked. Most people I've seen are hyping it to hell, but I really don't see it. The only good wizards with ETB effects are probably too expensive to print in the precon (and don't scale well in commander anyway). Besides, the ability is super expensive for a small payoff.

August 9, 2017 4:49 p.m.

Following the Krenko comment, New Blood targeting Krenko... Yikes.

Kindred Charge is really good. Triggers ETB effects as well.

Even more anthems for vampires. Really, Wizards?

------ I mean, in commander, turn 3/4 Razaketh is a thing that can happen with regularity, making that commander damage look almost pitiful. I mean, big creatures on turn 3 are nothing to scoff at, but unless they're really powerful (Terastodon or Ulamog or something) they aren't all that scary.

Oh yeah, and Teferi's protection should exile your hand face-down too, and return the top X cards of your exile zone to your hand before you untap, where X is the number of cards previously in your hand. To protect against stuff like Delirium Skeins. That, or they eratta phasing.
