DevoidMage Crazy = Genius

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

I'm a Tron aficionado, legacy burn player, and overall hater of actually playing magic. I've got a Tron primer located here:

1+1+1=7 {Tron Primer}

Modern DevoidMage


it's not done yet, but it'll get there. If you have any questions with your Tron list, don't hesitate to give me a shout.

Hey buddy, was wondering what you would sell a NM Revised Bayou for? Thanks.

Hey guys,

So I have a foiled out legacy burn deck that I kind of don't want to play anymore. Way too many people are playing burn now a days, and I really don't like playing the mirror.

I have the legacy deck and modern conversion into Rw for trade. I'd love to keep the deck together, but am fine with piecing it apart if there isn't any interest in the full thing.

Binder link thing

Things that i'm looking for: I want to build a new legacy deck, so if you have a bunch of pieces of something we can see if we can make it work. Otherwise, I don't really have anything that I am looking for in particular, so anything is open.

Modern mono-black:

Geralf's Messenger, Vampire Nighthawk, Gatekeeper of Malakir, Phyrexian Obliterator, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Gravecrawler, Bloodghast, removal spells, Thoughtseize. That's basically the deck. Link

Or you could play 8 Rack

Or Death cloud

Budget options for all of these archetypes can be found with a quick google search.

You can't cast this with an expertise, considering that it says "Cast this only from your graveyard". It's basically flashback but with a different ability instead of the same ability as the first one.

Makes for some interesting scenarios with the actual flashback mechanic, ala Snapcaster Mage because it's just a split card in your graveyard. Don't know yet if you'll be able to cast this for 4 if you give it actual flashback.

Still neat tho.

Just spend an hour or so fiddling around in the profile and settings management pages. You already know how to post on the forums so that's most of it, but if you figure out how to utilize all the little features that come with your account navigating and getting the most out of the site will be a breeze.

Make sure you're subscribed to all of the forums you're interested in so that you get notifications when posts end up there, make sure you know where your decks are kept, and make sure you know how to do the cool things on the forums like linking your decks, tagging people, and utilizing stuff like the mana symbols. Aside from that, just kind of explore, the site isn't too difficult to understand.

xzzane is the guy for tokens. He has like infinite information on his profile about the archetype. Worth taking a look at if you're interested in the strategy. He's not very active anymore, but still has a wealth of info left behind.

I mean it's interesting. If there's any two cards that can be jammed into a fateful hour mechanic based strategy it's Death's Shadow and Bitterblossom. I like the concept behind it but you'd need to playtest several different lists until you find out what if any of it actually works.

Just like a WB midrange deck with an explosive end game plan seems ok.

I thought about bring to light but realised that it would only ever be siege rhinos. It doesn't help the curve as it's a dead card in the first four to five turns, and when it does come down it's not any better than any other card in the deck.

It's weird because you would think that that would be like the perfect card in this sort of strategy, and it probably would be if it cost like four.

March 13, 2017 11:18 a.m.

Yeah, that's not too big a deal. Might tack off like $7 or something from your final price but the damage is nothing to worry about.

It would be helpful if you took a picture of the dent on the bottom corner and posted it so we could make a better judgment there.

As for your first question, if you plan on holding onto the item long term there's no sense in opening it as it is much more valuable sealed. You have nothing to worry about in terms of someone switching the cards out or whatever, that's not too common an issue if one at all. Sometimes you just get lucky when shopping at big box stores like that. I recently found a japanese breya deck at walmart that I am also keeping sealed for quite a while.

If you want to play with the deck, definitely open it up and go for it, but if you're looking for a sort of investment, keep it sealed and forget that you have it for a few years.

I'd personally sell a NM bayou for $160-175 counting for haggling.

I don't have my bayou anymore if that is what you were asking for however.

Similar to legacy splinter twin deck, I would say that this sort of build would just be something you bring to your weekly legacy 8 man as something fun and as a change of pace. It can win games certainly, but I wouldn't say that this sort of thing has any chance of real success at the professional level.

Unfortunately you really need Ensnaring Bridge, Mox Opal, and Surgical Extraction to make the deck work properly, and those are all quite expensive pieces.

Mono white is likely the cheapest you can build a prison with.

Ghostly Prison, Sphere of Safety, Suppression Field, Story Circle, Nevermore, Oblivion Ring, Ivory Mask, Rule of Law...

Enchantress might be a decent option to look into for your first iteration as it's reasonably budget. It's not a total prison but it does use the disruptive elements so that it can set itself up. The MTGSalvation primer is also a good place to start.

This is the mono white deck I play online, it looks to lock the opponent out with Kami of False Hope and Proclamation of Rebirth.

If that's not to your liking, check This link

Just look at what other people are playing to draw inspiration.

Tron is the best prison deck in modern (best referring to the deck, not necessarily setting up the best prison). It keeps the board squeaky clean and just removes all of your opponents threats before killing them with some big dumb thing.

There's also Sun and Moon which is the RW prison deck that plays Blood Moon, Ghostly Prison, Nahiri, the Harbinger and Emrakul, the Aeons Torn to get the job done, it's a lot slower and has a lot more interaction.

Then there's the infamous Lantern control deck which locks your opponent out of drawing cards with Lantern of Insight and Codex Shredder, then stops them from attacking with Ensnaring Bridge and eventually mills them out for the win. This is the grindiest deck in modern.

If you're more on a budget, you can build a mono white prison style deck with like Ghostly Prison, Sphere of Safety, Magus of the Tabernacle, Suppression Field, and Damping Matrix. there's a ton of ways to build this sort of thing on a budget that can be found with a quick google / youtube search.

Lastly, if you want something a bit less prisony, just with prison elements, there's death and taxes that tries to land lock the opponent with Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Leonin Arbiter, and Ghost Quarter then just beats down with white weenies.

Any of these are viable strategies in modern at the moment with Tron and Lantern being the highest tier'd options.
