Jay Unlife of the Party

Formerly known as Jp3ngu1nb0y.

I'm Jay. I'm currently a high school Junior, and I plan to study linguistics. I'm into music and literature a lot. My favorite author is James Joyce. I could never decide on a favorite musician, though, because my taste is very ecclectic so I can't aptly represent it all in one. Currently, though, I've been listening to a lot of Postpunk, Postrock, and Posthardcore. And Shoegaze. Always Shoegaze. I play the bass, but I'm not in a band currently. Also the Contra Alto Clarinet.

I used to call myself a primarily White player, but I just play whatever catches my interest. I like graveyard interactions, so this leads to a lot of B, G, and W. I don't really enjoy U, but it has its moments.

As far as decks, I generally play one of two things:

-A wack combo deck or otherwise just-barely-fringe-playable gimmick. (This 90% of the time)

-A weenie-based aggro-control strategy (Hatebears, Dead Guy Ale, Death and Taxes, and so forth).

My favorite artist is Howard Lyon followed by Terese Nielsen and Rebecca Guay. Lyon's art on Make a Wish is my all-time favorite, and I collect it. If we trade, feel welcome to throw one in for my collection!

My prized card is my Foil Angel of Flight Alabaster, signed in silver pen by Howard Lyon. The foiling is amazing, and looks even better with the silver ink.

I used to delete decks all the time, but really just can't be bothered now. If you're looking for one that vanished let me know.

Currently I'm running as follows:

EDH: Alesha, Who Smiles at Death, Nath of the Gilt-Leaf, Underworld Coinsmith, Zedruu the Greathearted, Child of Alara

Standard: Aristocrats act IV

Modern: Manifest Dredge I'm an avid player of Assault Loam, and I'm eager to discuss it with any and all.

Legacy: Red Dead Redemption (proxied)

Feel free to hit me up with questions and stuff. I'm on here a lot.

i'm interested in your Nahiri, the Lithomancer if you could take a look at my binder that would be great!

Hey. I was thinking, you should run Demigod of Revenge. What do you think?

March 29, 2015 5:31 p.m.

Do you think a card like Heartbeat of Spring would be good? I think it would benefit my deck more than my opponents. Also is Bloom Tender any good.

Actually Utopia Sprawl is a thing so it does work

Could you take a look at the copy of the copy of my deck. It drops rosheen turn 2. Thanks

What Do you think of Fracturing Gust as sideboard teck for bogles and affinity

Thanks

Alright. Next time there is modern at bbc I'll try it how it is now and I soul's fire is a "win-more" like you said I'll replace it with a set of bolts and use the extra slots on my side for a couple of beast withins. Oh and how do I put in card names so you can click it and see what it is?

Here is the Elves Deck: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/they-see-me-tappin-they-hatin/

Thanks for checking it out.

Or what about dreadbore

March 24, 2015 2:40 p.m.

Ajb39850 says... #14

Should I replace the bolts on my sideboard for beast withins. I know it's a bit slower but it handles combo decks and tron better

Are you playing in the league?

Is sword of feast and famine to slow for modern

Ajb39850 says... #19

Alright that makes sense. Are there any commander staples that should definitely be in my deck?

March 22, 2015 12:34 a.m.

Ajb39850 says... #20

... So commander is expensive as hell :(

March 22, 2015 12:05 a.m.

Ajb39850 says... #21

I started a commander deck. Do you think you could take a look and maybe digest some things. I'm adding lands later btw

If I used animar as a commander could I use colorless cards?

If I mark myself as "going" to the dtk prerelease does that count as registering or should I call them up?

I redid my deck. It's on my profile as a copy of the original if you want to take a look

Demigod doesn't work in my list. He's better in Dredgevine aggro type builds. Thanks though.

Magicrafter, that was most likely a (great) joke by an administrator due to Meta's frequent mispelling of "Modern Masters."

Idk whodunnit, but they deserve praise.

Got the cards- when mailing in a plastic case like that, you may want to secure them in the future; they rattled around in there and all got a bit beaten up around the edges. I don't mind because they're for a deck, but some folks might be upset :) just so you know

Yo, I'm looking for some stuff to finish up my Standard deck. Looking for 2x Kolaghan's Command, 3x Temple of Malice, 2-4x Risen Executioner, and some stuff for my Modern. I'm not totally done uploading my DTK stuff into my binder, but I have Dragonlord Silumgar, Dragonlord Dromoka, Dromoka's Command, and some other stuff. Hit me up if you're interested in any trades!

The modern event deck sucks dude. Beating it 2-1 is far from impressive. It's the magic equivalent of an easy bot.

If you want to use a bad card for fun, ok. I occasionally use pet cards in my decks. However, that does not make a bad card good. Comparing it to the likes of Abrupt Decay is just downright dumb. There are many more effective ways to recycle cards.

Consider this: in a vacuum, this card does nothing. Turn 2, this probably does nothing. Casting it anytime other than a top deck battle is basically throwing away card advantage. Witness you can abuse with the Cryptic Command lock, AEther Vial, etc. Or just get a desperate blocker/attacker. Why run this to return good card instead of just running more good cards?
