Said on T O L ......


ive been playing around with adding green to my Seeking Treasure for the End of the World and i like some of your additions, wincons are the easy part, as most baubles cantrip allowing you to dig through the deck. (Vedalken Archmage is a huge draw engine work and makes Aetherflux Reservoir a solid wincon)

as for combos ....

Priest of Yawgmoth+Mirran Spy+Spine of Ish Sah

Grand Architect+Pili-Pala+way to spend infinite colored mana

and because you have green the only real additive wincon wise is

Glissa, the Traitor+Mindslaver+Forbidden Orchard for repeatable steals

but really needs Seedborn Muse and Vedalken Orrery to make it suitable for multiplayer.

Said on Deckmaking Game!...


those are decks pooki, but that's not quite how this works:

Hornet Nest is the current card (suggested by TheLariat) so the CHALLENGE is to build a ~NEW deck for that card (not a platform to showcase existing decks built around a card)

so ill build Dr...Beeeeess!!!!!! (deckmaking game)

and now summon a ... Dragon Throne of Tarkir deck ...

Said on It hit me ......


off color fetches like Arid Mesa and Windswept Heath can grab Stomping grounds or basics without them coming into play tapped, which is huge for the tempo/speed of the deck.

also the deck now has a small splash of white, which both fits the samut flavor and allows for Spark Trooper join in.

not sure the explore/traverse/bird package is enough to make green worth pushing. especially when you have artifact "ramp" in the form of cards like Etherium Sculptor, Semblance Anvil, Cloud Key and Foundry Inspector to help push things along (and even the urza lands?)

The thopter/sword combo is a nice touch, but Grand Architect allows you to make infinite mana/tokens with the combo and Disciple of the Vault lets you kill an opponent at instant speed. and while Spellskite is solid at protecting the combo but Ethersworn Canonist and counterspells/removal would help solidify the base.

I might have tried to shoehorn in the Sharuum+Sculpting Steel/Phyrexian Metamorph+Blasting Station loop/combo that gives the deck more options for winning and integrates Sharuum into the core of the deck rather then just a part of the 60, but thopter/sword isnt worth muddling the mixture for.

Aetherwind Basker is a favorite of mine, can hit the board hard, is hard to kill and easily hits 20+/20+ trample

Said on Tree Folklore...


fliers are less of an issue now with the additions of Spidersilk Armor, Squall Line, Great Oak Guardian and Pariah's Shield. however Constant Mists may be worth a look, even with that costly buyback, it may be better then Moment's Peace.

Its probably most fun to play of all my current edh decks as it runs well and can easily get out of control quickly even under adverse conditions, and despite ~72% of creatures being treefolk, it has quite the toolbox to pull from via the various green tutors. (Spike Weaver would probably have a place in the deck if i wasnt so focused on the saturation of treefolk and shaman creature types)

Ahri but its a useless combo that acts as a base allowing hundreds of cards to do a thing +1 times.

Listing all an infinite combos simplest form, then updated text so that the variants of the combo can be listed with it, seems more streamlined then having ... ballista+mikaeus+Altar of the Brood, ballista+mikaeus+Impact Tremors, ballista+mikaeus+Blood Artist, ballista+mikaeus+Hardened Scales ... etc ... etc.... all listed separately.

June 12, 2017 5:41 p.m.

the Mikaeus+Ballista combo DOES go infinite ... it just doesnt accomplish anything by doing so (ballista can target itself causing it to go from a 2/2 to essentially a 1/0 and dying)

so a card like Altar of the Brood (also Impact Tremors/Blood Artist type effects) allows that combo to be profitable ..... but it does require the presence of a Hardened Scales/Viscera Seer/Heartless Summoning style effect to do the prescribed/listed "infinite damage" nonbo

June 11, 2017 3:53 p.m.

the combo does still give infinite etb loops for cards like Altar of the Brood and any cards that effect counters still allow the combo to go off (ex Metallic Mimic, Hardened Scales)

Said on the Bubonic Plague...


no Pack Rat, Pestilence Rats, Marrow-Gnawer or Patron of the Nezumi? -4 style points

otherwise looks rattastic +1

Said on Going with W/B ......


TLDR:W/B Zombies MTGGoldfish shows streamlined and competitive versions of your shell...

the advantage of b/w zombies is that they get damage from etb and ltb of zombies so chandra isnt as damaging (as it is against mono-) but Argy has a point

for the shell your using, i would drop the cards in there that just help you put -1/-1 counters on stuff, or dont push the deck towards victory ... Archfiend of Ifnir, Oketra the True, Sacred Cat, Wasteland Scorpion, Wander in Death, Cataclysmic Gearhulk, and possibly Zulaport Cutthroat ,Festering Mummy and Miasmic Mummy

focus on 4x of zombie cards like Wayward Servant, Plague Belcher, Lord of the Accursed, Liliana's Mastery and value engines like Diregraf Colossus, Cryptbreaker, Dark Salvation and even Binding Mummy.

Breed Lethality mtggoldfish

its hard to say: using the link above you can see that "Breed Lethality" has about $100 worth of cards (paper) and it seems that they can sell for +/- that value with some auctions successfully selling them for even more (saw 109 and goldfish has it valued at 113) so given Atraxa's popularity the value will probably increase if it dodges a reprint.

that being said, the value is currently on a bit of a decline due to the beginning of spoiler season for Tribal Commander decks and Hour of Devistation, so I would keep an eye on how the new commanders/cards and the reprints effect the value and demand for cards contained in "Breed Lethality" and the popularity of Atraxa/partners as a whole.
