Jay of the Tickled Fancy

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 used to call myself a primarily White player, but I just play whatever catches my interest.

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.

Hey, I was wondering your thoughts on a 1x or 2x mindslaver in my tron, against control (In SB). Do you think it would be worth it in our meta?

I was just cracking wise lol. Wasn't trying to be a dogpiler.

I don't think this will see EDH play at all. Dread Cacodemon and Reiver Demon are better. Sure, more mana, but better in most cases anyway.

Public shaming is bad. Didn't you read the Scarlet Letter in high school?

Bonesplitter would be 15x better and doesn't see play anyway.

Infect would never run it. Too slow. Very little buff. The returning from the gy is what makes it strong.

What's the sac 5 artifacts for an extra turn card called again? Name escapes me.

But yea that can net you infinite turns if you have 5 mana.

The main, 2 card combo is very strong though. Running 4x one drops that make it even stronger is a no brainer.

It's a legacy-playable combo. It would blow out modern.

Said on How to budget ......


To build budget, I always do the same thing.

-Get my hands on the commander

-Build with what I already own

-Trade for upgrades

-Gradually buy more expensive cards in order of importance

This method allows me to get a very strong deck together on the cheap in maybe 1 or 2 months.
