Gold star if you read all that!

Greetings all! I am Dredge4Life, an avid fan of EDH and Modern, as well as the up-and-coming Frontier format! I've been playing Magic since 2013, where I purchased my first Intro Pack featuring Garruk's Horde. I'm an even split between brewer/netdecker, but I always prefer to construct my EDH decks from scratch. My name is very contradictory, as the only real Dredge list I've ever put together was my RTR/THS Standard deck that I created with advice from a pamphlet found in an M15 Intro Pack (this was the first decent deck I'd ever come with, so I was very proud even though I'd never won anything with it.)My favourite deck I've ever played has been without a doubt my Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest EDH brew, which is really weird because I'm a diehard Blue player who doesn't feel comfortable if I don't have a Counterspell in my hand.

Aside from MtG, the aforementioned affinity for Harry Potter (Ravenclaw ftw), and Sci-Fi (10th Doctor best Doctor), I'm always happy to indulge in conversation about the Redwall series by Brian Jaques, or Robocraft (which I play religiously.) I am also always willing to play a good game of Chess (account named Maarlfoxx on Sparkchess.com) or Stratego (also Maarlfoxx.) Anyway, thanks for taking the time to read all of this. Please, enjoy the rest of your day, and keep being awesome!

Said on Prossh Food Chain...


You cast Prossh, get the kobolds. Purphuros triggers. You exile Prossh and the kobolds with Food Chain, and get the mana. You recast Prossh, getting more kobolds. At this point, you are gaining mana each time, creating functionally infinite mana and damage.

G/W doesn't necessarily have to be secondary in an Abzan list. Play Selesnya and splash B for cool enchantments and constellation payoffs. I'd personally go with Abzan, because it gives you access to things like Daxos the Returned and Phyrexian Arena.

...Aaand now I'm scarred for life.

It is worth noting that Remand targeting Evo is a major blowout.

Really, Pod isn't broken in this meta right now. I think it could come back to Modern if WoTC would give their head a shake.

I think we should assume that the best possible player is piloting each list when deciding which general goes in what tier. From my limited knowledge of CEDH, blood pod seems extremely powerful when played correctly.

Thanks for the responses! I wasn't aware of Frank's article. I'll definitely check that out. Thanks again for the help.

Said on What to play ......


If you feel like you want to play control, then by all means go for it. I think it may be a little slow, but there shouldn't be too much difference. Play what you love, but I think that the aggro deck is better in the meta if you want results.

After four years of longingly staring at Arcbound Ravager in the case of my LGS, I've finally realized my MTG dream of putting Modern Affinity together on paper. I've played a few matches, and I definitely love the deck. However, I have a few questions about sequencing, decision points, and what kind of hands to keep.

If I'm playing against a non-blue fair deck, and I have one, a Springleaf Drum , and two 0-drop artifact creatures in play. I have a Steel Overseer and a Master of Etherium in hand, as well as one land. Do I play the Overseer first to try to get it to stick, or do I play the Master to bait removal in turn two?

I attack a Mardu Midrange opponent on four life with a 6/6 Arcbound Ravager and a 0/1 Signal Pest. They block with a Shambling Vent and have four untapped lands with one card in hand. Do I sacrifice the Ravager to try to get the kill or do I wait another turn?

If I'm given the choice between payoffs, when is it correct to lead with which payoff? What order do I generally play Cranial Plating/Ravager/Overseer?

What do I look for in a keepable hand? What is the optimal mix of payoffs/enablers/lands?

Is it better to play more spells from hand, or get in initial damage from Nexi when I have Cranial Plating in play?

Sorry if these are lacking in details. These games were played a few days ago, so my memory is a little hazy. Thanks so much for taking time to comment.

I found there were a lot of fair decks at the last big Modern event I attended, so I'd go with Goblins personally. The ability to go under/wide of Delver and B/G/X decks seems important. They're pretty close though.

Said on don't do crack...


Well, the card was Evil Twin. Did he really expect anything else?

Said on don't do crack...


I ripped a Dimir Doppleganger from a loose pack of Conspiracy and a Hero of Leina Tower from a pack of Born of the Gods. That felt pretty bad.

Niv-Mizzet doesn't have remotely the same level of intelligence that Bolas has. Bolas has lived for centuries, and gathered a wealth of knowledge from hundreds of different worlds. The only world Niv-Mizzet knows is Ravnica. The entirety of the Izzet guild amounts to only a fraction of Bolas's power and cunning. It would be like if one thousand chess amateurs were told to play against Bobby Fischer. The brainpower and skills just simply aren't there, and Fischer would win every time very easily.

Still just Bolas. As much as I love Niv-Mizzet, neither his mind nor his body are capable of taking on an ancient Elder Dragon.

I really like Mirri for casual EDH, but I'm not sure what to do with her outside of tokens/weenie.

Draw engines still function under those restrictions.

In my opinion, if it was printed and isn't banned, it's totally okay. Just don't get mad when I hit it with Counterspell.

Said on Edgar Markov...


Sorin lost just because he's not a member of the Jacetice League, which is extremely depressing. I hope they don't get rid of him.

August 3, 2017 11:32 p.m.

JKRice I politely reject your premise. CEDH is awesome.

Gidgetimer Such a fool you were to believe that anyone could defeat the Jacetice League!
