Crucible of Worlds

"Stumbling upon the Crucible was perhaps his greatest undoing, as those who view firsthand the apex of life itself lose all trace of who they believe themselves to be. In that, though, they find something even greater - a greater understanding of the congruity and cohesion of this world."

"The void offers many challenges, and accepts anyone who dares to confront it. Those that succeed are gifted the true prize, the ability to make something out of nothing."

Hey Guys, thanks for clicking on my name, accidentally or otherwise.

On this site, I try to help out others with their deckbuilding issues, and offer advice where I can. I'm also using this site and its users as a personal resource, so don't think that I know everything.

My main formats are Modern and Pauper. I don't like Standard at all, but I will always be up in those modern forums.

Once upon a time my favorite spell in the game was Life from the Loam, however, upon viewing the Apex of all civilization in its entire glory, I would have to say now that that has changed to be Crucible of Worlds. It's like the same card, but better because it's colorless. However, I did write a primer on all things Loam, and if you'd like to see that, it's right here.

As for me, i'm a twenty-something dude from Chicago-Land. Grew up in Canada, then moved down here when I was young. I love wacky things, I'm super into dad-jokes, and finding the hidden gems in things. I'm a self-taught videographer / photographer, as well as an avid cartoonist and musician. Basically, I love art.

I'm always down to chat, and always down for some games if you'd like to play.

First ever Magic card: Jolrael's Favor. Sometimes I forget the name of it, which is why this is here.

These things are likely to be printed for the next few years and will be very common. Holding on to them would be in my eyes anyway akin to holding on to a sealed dual deck but at like 1/10th the scale. They're very unlikely to appreciate over time unless you want to just hold them for a literal decade and they're discontinued before that decade starts.

Spire of Industry instead of some of these basics. I'm pretty sure that Blood Crypts are only like a dollar online as well. Some number of blue sources as well (with spires, you probably only need like one land source) to accommodate Thoughtcast and Stubborn Denial out of the side.

Things for the sideboard: Inquisition of Kozilek / Duress, Ghirapur AEther Grid, Stubborn Denial, Whipflare, Ancient Grudge.

I highly suggest finding an editor. These articles seem to just be 'from brain to paper' and are more difficult than they should be to read.

If you're willing to paypal for it, wouldn't buying one off of TCGPlayer just be easier?

I played fog for a quick minute, but there just isn't any infect in my local meta so i've found no need for it. The one sudden shock is well and good enough. Fog isn't particularly beneficial in any other matchup, though it seems ok against like burn or affinity it just kinda ends up being a bit bad. Likewise with Feed the Clan, it really jsut buys another turn of you being too far behind to get anything done.

As for sanctum, there are times where it's correct to search it out, but usually it's just kind of a thing to do when it's available. Proper times to search it out are like when you've got an uncracked map with full tron available on turn four with a karn in hand as your only threat. I've only searched it out in like that or really long game scenarios. Like the deck doesn't rely on it as it used to do with Eye of Ugin, sanctum is just added value.
