DarkMagician Deckspert

Started playing casually (and by that I mean with friends who supplemented their limited knowledge of how to play with made up rules) in 2001. Nowadays I play mostly casual (with the real rules) but occasionally do Modern tournaments.

I don't play decks, I play graveyards. Reanimate, Animate Dead, Eternal Witness and Snapcaster Mage type cards make me uber happy. Why cast a card once when you can cast it 10, 15, 20 or even 25 times? (Yes I have cast a single card 25 times in one game solely because a friend said I couldn't, I Pondered very deeply in that game). <<

I charge $20 for regular border extensions, and $30 for anything more.

Been wanting to do an EDH league using a points system and have drawn up a few possible lists as far as achievements go. My favorites so far are:

  • No Peaking - Win without any tutor effects (still going back and forth on whether or not to include fetch lands as tutors under this one).

  • By the Seat of Your Pants - Win with 5 or less LP remaining.

buildingadeck I didn't say fast combo was the same as aggro, you asked me what I meant by aggro and I answered. Perhaps I should have said faster more aggressive decks that are creature heavy but at that point you're just nitpicking.

Point out where I said decks don't want fetches.

Not everyone plays at tournaments but even a lot of casual groups get annoyed when 90% of someones deck is proxied.

Winterblast I'm not assuming that most midrange decks don't do anything in the early game, they're just more likely to be cool with playing a land and passing turn. Most midrange decks are multi-colored making mana fixing important in the early game.

Aggro, faster more aggressive decks. As for why to buy worse cards, a cards power is relative to the shell it's in. Yes the Khans/Zen fetches will usually be the best but there are exceptions to that rule. Also many play groups cap how many proxies (if any at all) that they allow a deck to have so many people use the cheaper cards to play with the deck as they're aquiring the cards they need to finish it. Some people take months or even years to complete some decks, especially when the deck in question costs 10k or more.

Playability is relative. Like I said aggro wouldn't want Vivids but many decks can utilize them. Just playing devils advocate here

You are a very mean person lol

buildingadeck There are way more than ten fetch lands and the Vivids aren't that bad depending on your deck build. If you're aggro then definitely a no go but in midrange they're decent fixers.

Why do you include the Obelisks but not Commander's Sphere, it's strictly better in EDH. Astral Cornucopia and Everflowing Chalice should both be on here as well especially with Atraxa, Praetors' Voice being a Commander.

Oloro_Magic I meant does the spell continue to self-replicate? Sorry for the confusion.

dbpunk 100% agree.

dbpunk Every combo can be dealt with, that's why you run multiple and multiple ways to protect them... Though the Avacyn combo is admittedly weak it usually only has to connect once. My general is Atraxa, Praetors' Voice.

dbpunk They're all alternate ways to lock my opponents out of the game. Linvala has the advantage of shutting down opposing creatures activated abilities (including preventing my opponents from tapping their land) but Elesh leaves them in a worse state should they find a way to break the combo and nurfs attacking creatures pretty well. I like the Avacyn combo with Rogue's Passage, one hit and the game is practically sealed.

dbpunk I prefer Nature's Revolt (because Living Plane is way overpriced) with either Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite or Linvala, Keeper of Silence. Not sure which is more degenerate in the deck. Avacyn, Angel of Hope + Worldslayer gets the job done as well.

Rhadamanthus I'll try that.

griffstick I actually discovered it on here lol

This might actually belong in the rules section.

I finally managed to pull off one of my decks main win-cons today by pairing Knowledge Pool with Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir. The combo prevents your opponents from being able to resolve a spell that's been exiled with Pool due to the restrictions of Teferi on when opponents can play spells. Unfortunately my opponents had trouble understanding and I couldn't think of a simpler way to explain it so... Anyone have a better way that I can explain the interaction to them?

Wizards will simply continue to dumb the game down until it's Yu-Gi-Oh.
