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!

Hi, I saw that you are a fellow Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest player and was wondering if you had your deck posted somewhere? I'd love to take a look for some ideas. If you want to look at mine it's

Mazirek, Shaman of the Swarm ($60 budget)

I feel like that's maybe cheating? Intentionally trying to flip a coin a certain practiced way seems a little sketchy to me.

In any case, Faithless Looting?

Impending Doom only costs four, same as Persecutor, and has an effect that is supposed to be a major downside. I'd say the two are pretty similar, although it may be closer to Master of the Feast.

Impending Doom is my new favourite iteration of Abyssal Persecutor.

AtomicEmpire Your profile says that you love Grixis, so why not Grixis Delver? It's a great interactive Modern deck, and it rarely if ever becomes useless in any given metagame. It's costly, but it's definitely worth it.

There are some great ideas here! I love this list! I especially like Animation Module and Retribution of the Ancients, I'd have never thought of those! In terms of suggestions, how about Throne of Geth? Sacrifice a clue or a servo to give the entire team two +1/+1 counters. Blood Artist is also great when you're sacrificing things, and the life he gives you is fantastic. Lastly, any free persist creature goes infinite with a sac outlet and Mazirek. May I suggest Aerie Ouphes for the bonus of eliminating every flying creature your opponents have?

I snuck into the top 8 with Grixis Emerge, which to my shock and dismay I really enjoyed playing.

Tibalt only costs two mana!? TWO!? I'm done. Format's broken.

Said on Was Han Solo ......


I went to watch Force Awakens a few days after it came out, and I was very excited to see Han Solo make a triumphant return to the screen. Finally, some more news about the hero that had blown up the Death Star! But when I watched the movie, I saw him blatantly make a terrible decision. He goes to speak with his son, and tries to bring him back to the light side. Of course, it doesn't work out the way he intended, and he ends up falling to his apparent death after being skewered through the middle by Kylo Renn. I left the theater feeling very confused, and then in a later discussion commented that he had been acting extremely stupid by approaching his son. I was immediately barraged by several angry voices, each stating that I was wrong and that "you always try to help your children."

That's great, but it doesn't change the fact that he was being a complete idiot by walking up to the clearly unstable masked man with the laser sword expecting everything to go right. I don't care if you're his dad; it's still a rediculous thing to do. The counter-argument stated that you help your kids and I completely agree; you just don't walk right up to them while they're having a bad day. I maintain that he was being a total idiot, and, failing to come to a resolution, I have turned to the interwebs. What do you think? Was he being stupid, or fatherly? What would you have done in this position?

I will say that it is entirely his right to play a mono-U control list whenever he wants to so long as he abides by the banlist. If this is a league with serious prizes on the line, than I can absolutely sympathize with wanting to play the best deck. Secondly, do you hate the person or the way he plays Magic? If it's the former, than it's definitely his problem, and if it's the latter, than I would be careful what you say, as unjust words can hurt people. There is a person at my LGS who plays a deck that is absolutely miserable to play against, but the person is really nice. You can't fault people for how they play MtG, and it shouldn't skew your opinion of them.

That being said, if it's the person that's the problem, and you've already tried the peaceful route, then just tell him that you and your playgroup will not play with him if he'd going to be a jerk, or use mono-U in casual (read- not for prizes) games. I have experience on both ends, and mono-Counterspell is never a fun experience in multiplayer EDH. If you utterly fail to convince him to change, then I'd say just don't play with him. You have the ability to say no, and he can't force you. I know it sucks, but sometimes that's the only thing you can do. In terms of Generals to help you battle I recommend Dragonlord Dromoka or Surrak Dragonclaw, because they shut down Counterspell hard. I'd also advise you to not hold on to your anger, as it is only hurting you in the long run. Finally, make sure you dislike the person, not the deck, and make sure your opinion is justified.

Hope this helps!
