Eiti3 The Living Oxymoron

Standby for some coding is about to ensue... although, I smell pie... Brb...

LVL_666 says... #1

Hey Eiti3, thanks for taking a look at my new deckpage. It's still a work in progress, but any input is welcome. As for my opinion on America, Land(less) of the Free [Creatureless Too], i'll divide my criticisms into separate parts.

So the first thing I noticed with the page is it's stark white color palette. The combination of the mostly white background, the white snow flakes, and the white letters was a little hard to look at. I'd try changing the background and letters to something less bright, and easy on the eyes.
So on the note of having less white, I figured i'd throw in some suggestions for alternate backgrounds.

Winter Soldier Shield

Winter Soldier Movie Poster

In addition to the background, i'd change the letters to a less bright white to reduce strain on the eyes -

body { 
color:#d5d5d5; 
}

Overall though, it's definitely one of the most unique deck pages i've ever seen on the site. Very cool in it's use of so many different aspects of CSS. Good work!

NO-NO-NO-NO-NO-NOOOOOO!

I almost finished my Leovold, Emissary of Trest deck.

Guess now I have to add and use Atraxa, Praetors' Voice instead... Man... I was so close to finishing the deck too...

Spidery Grasp and Honed Khopesh.

Weird. They look added to me.

[[card:Approach of the Second Sun (AKH)]]

Approach of the Second Sun, tada!

And on more on-topic, I'm hoping to see some funny wins with Approach of the Second Sun rather than the general Felidar Sovereign "oops, you didn't attack me enough and now I won"; cause you could end up casting Approach of the Second Sun with a Narset, Enlightened Master EDH deck several times from Narset, but never from hand, until you get the draw spells, forever taunting your opponents with a win in sight.

Done and done. They were being accepted/denied while I was going through that list so I know at least 10 have been looked at.

If you need any others, for Amonkhet or otherwise, ping me.

~Working on them now. I will be doing it until I post again and they should take anywhere in between a few hours and a day to be accepted (if everything was written correctly).~

It'd be easier if someone made a list on which cards haven't been added yet. I can only assume for myself, but I'd rather not spend the time comparing the dozens of cards that have already been added for the 'X' amount that hasn't. However, if someone were to supply me with that list, I would gladly take the time.

I agree to disagree on the Hatebears matter lumping it with Toolbox/Tutor, but this is your list, do as you will with it.

As for Group Slug, I would like to hear your thoughts on that archetype as I'm a bit confused on your lumping Burn with Group Slug.

Hatebears is not toolbox, but a hatebears deck can contain toolbox features. I'd personally tack it onto "Taxes".

  • Donation (Could be tack it onto Group Hug/Forcefeed)
  • Mass Destruction/Removal (Child of Alara or Worldpurge~esque)
  • Burn (Purphoros, God of the Forge or Zo-Zu the Punisher~esque)
  • Hive Mind (A Taste Of Mortality)
  • Landless. I kid...

    "Lord" is not a creature type. Used to be back when but they have been ratified to other creature types like Wizard, Human, Barbarian,Kobold, and maybe more.

    Best way to abuse his emblem is to run multiple Gideons. This helps if you ever don't get the certain cards to prevent certain ways to get rid of Gideon.

    As for Thief of Blood and Perilous Vault, it's extremely hard to deal with those unless you're running blue. You may want to splash it if you find yourself going against those cards.

    But I highly recommend looking at a cool EDH deck that abuses Gideon's emblem to survive without going overboard on keeping him on board: A Taste Of Mortality.

    April 18, 2017 7:38 a.m.

    ...is not used to people willing to help all the time...

    ummm, yea. In the least rude way possible, I try cut them down myself. I do it for those who are helping me because I have the tendency to be extremely stubborn when it comes to wanting to keep specific cards, even if they should be cut. I know it can be frustrating trying to convince someone that a decision is bad and they don't see the reasonings. I recognize this and have made myself at least try a bit harder to cut down to 105, tops, before sharing the deck.

    I'm also a borderline perfectionist, as you might tell with a few of my page scripts. I like good looking things and I like it when people like it. And those page scripts and descriptions help flesh out the themes/gimmicks that I always base my decks around. I've still have yet to make the rest of my public decks look "pretty" and due to this my mind is a tending to the idea of "get them done first before working on other stuff".

    I do appreciate the thought though. I just know how I can be and I'd rather not frustrate people when I'm "new" here.

    I made a 5 color deck that did this exact thing two or three years ago before I found tappedout and then tore it apart for the inconsistency of 5 colors and needing to get all those combo pieces. I mean, now you have Exquisite Archangel and card:Gideon of the Trials. +1 nonetheless as I honestly am glad to experience some sort of nostalgia that actually works! I playtested it twice, but never used the general or any of the swing dudes, ie Geist of Saint Traft. Any reason why you chose him?

    Lastly, I would like to suggest at least a Sol Ring. Playtesting without any mana rocks felt extremely weird (but that may just be me). Selective Memory might be a cool deal to cut all the cards you don't "need", especially if you die and have Lich's Mirror on field. Curse of Exhaustion might be a tech card based on meta. I play against a lot of combo decks and can sometimes lose to them before I'm even set up. I've found Curse to be a great way to slow down the one person who is the most trouble.

    Again +1

    April 15, 2017 12:26 p.m.

    Daedalus19876, nah I have like 10 or 11 private decks that I've been working on anywhere between weeks and months, and maybe 1 or 2 a year. I'm reeeeeeeeeally bad at cutting and push it off to theorize another 100+ card deck themes that I repeat the cycle with.... so long story short, yes, I'll help brainstorming the instant you need/want me.

    April 15, 2017 12:12 p.m.

    I have a 125~ decklist for a crazy Trostani, Selesnya's Voice deck that I've been meaning to cut down and do all the fancy stuff like a description and script. But feel free, I think your idea is cool.

    April 15, 2017 11:22 a.m.

    Angel's Trumpet, Eon Hub, Fatespinner, Lethal Vapors are all that come to mind.

    Did you forget the brackets?

    You can go to your deck page, right-click the box, Inspect, add a little box should appear at the bottom. Highlighted in that box could be a "Panel-Body", and two above that should be "panel panel-default". Click that and new stuff should appear on the right side. First bit should be "element style" and below that should be ".list-group-item, .panel, .well, .modal-content" with a "background-color: #473D32;" and below that a "border:1px solid #635747". Click the "#473D32", it should become editable and type either "transparent" or "rgba(0,0,0,0.75)" and it should work.

    Imgur link to what I'm talking about

    That alone proves that it should work. If it continues to not work, then paste your code and I'll help from there.

    While we are at it, why not the hubs Chaos, Landless, Paradox (Engine), and Donate?

    Chaos and Donate have been themes for quite some time.

    Landless is my own personal "gimme" but I know quite a few modern and standard decks that simply don't run lands.

    Paradox Engine has figuratively defined a new genre of playing EDH and Casual. A hub was added for another card that did this: Stoneforge Mystic.

    Just thought I'd pitch in enough to derail! Although, I feel like Minotaur isn't as big as some tribals that should be added like Hydra, Changeling/Shapeshifter, Snakes, or even Elemental.

    Welcome Zimmers_0!

    Loved your Queen Marchesa deck quite some time back and it's a good fit to see you here.

    As for Captain Keywords, I'm legit curious with a Captain Sisay/legend deck with her. A fine tuned Sisay is scary, a fine tuned Captain Keywords with Captain Sisay and plenty of legendaries would be very, very scary... at least, that's my opinion...

    I'll let someone else build her if they want. is quite out of my realm. But definitely tag me if you do the Sisay theme.

    April 12, 2017 2:48 p.m.

    I've been wanting to build a "No, you don't win" deck for a while and this is superb against combo decks, specifically Palinchron + Deadeye Navigator

    div.panel.panel-default

    background-color: transparent;
    }
    

    Copy/paste that and it should work for you.
