MindAblaze The Grixis Dentist

I'm Justin and I'm a Grixis Player...

Welcome to the Vorthos cave.

There are two main things I love about magic. The strategy and the Lore. I also love the color pie but that's a different story.

The first part is because I learned to play from a very serious Spike. He made me very conscious of slow mana, below the curve creatures and janky, convoluted interactions. Play to win...we hit a few PTQs but mostly Game Days and FNMs. It was good times.

I play primarily casually now. As a result I mostly find myself building multiplayer decks that have some kind of combo built into them that generates oppressively incremental advantage. I love infinite combo decks but usually end up not putting them together for very long because they often win once or twice then I lose every time after that.

My favorite one so far has been


Life From The Stinkweed Scholar's Birthing Ooze

This is where the Vorthos comes in.

It's the story of an easily angered, yet Civilized Scholar  Flip . He's overwhelmed by the triviality of life and becomes a Death Cultist . He immerses himself in his Stinkweed and becomes fascinated with fantastical Devoted Druids, Morselhoarder s and Quillspikes. Finally, his Necrotic Ooze gets involved with a Birthing Pod and new life emerges.

One day I would like to begin a series of articles with short stories based around people's decks. When Im not planning a wedding and still trying to get settled in my new house with my four kids, fiancee and army of pets.

The database is user maintained, so some things may get missed, and somethings take time.

Upgraded users can add and fix cards themselves. Otherwise, your best bet is to post here in the official missing card/token thread.

They uploaded their Amonkhet pre-release deck, so it should be legal.

Short answer is TappedOut has been known to have legality issues for a long time. It's because the database is user curated, and requires time to deal with these things. You just need to make specifics known, and eventually someone will get to it. You could always upgrade your account and fix stuff yourself!

Diregraf Colossus. Don't worry about filling the graveyard for the first ability, just worry about casting zombies to make more zombies. I've pumped out swarms with that guy in the past.

Graf Harvest is awesome too. One mana to make all your guys harder for them to deal with is a nice price. If you're planning to attack that is.

Ah okay. Now I see that they're all rates. Interesting. Hopefully it won't lead to a seeding issue where the boxes are easily mappable.

Is there still going to be a double-faced card in every pack?

Flavour-wise I don't like it. Doppelgangers because of "reduced complexity?" The player/Walker is now summoning illusions/representations of walkers instead of the actual 'Walker.

Functionally I think it strengthened the card type, and I think it's allowed for less planning on deck building. Before you may want to limit the number of slots dedicated to 'walkers to limit the number of times you end up with dead cards in hand. Now there's less concern of that.

Overall I don't like it, although I will adapt to the potential. We'll see what happens.

My Edgar deck is the same, but definitely is not top tier.
