NobodyPicksBulbasaur King of Games

I've been playing Magic on and off for a number of years now. I got back into it right before M12 came out. I like playing standard because I like the pay-as-you-go approach, as opposed to dropping hundreds of dollars at once on a legacy deck. It also forces me to keep making and playing new decks, which is half the fun.

I did recently drop my collection to pick up a legacy deck, and I've been having lots of fun with it. The people at my LGS help me tweak it, and it's been smooth sailing.

I also love playing in limited formats and EDH, because they turn deck making into a skill, and forces creative play choices.

Those cards work really well in a 60-card Cascade-themed deck with multiple copies of value cards. Arranging the top 3 cards of your library is certainly powerful, but it loses a lot of punch when you have 100 cards in your deck, and are Cascading twice.

With Maelstrom Wanderer , you have to be particularly careful with every card in your deck. You never want to have a "dead" Cascade hit. ( I don't recommend running counterspells for this reason )

Of the cards you listed, Brainstorm , Fact or Fiction , and Consecrated Sphinx are all in my Maelstrom deck, and they are all quite powerful. I can also see a case for Impulse , but I don't personally run it. The other cantrips are fine in EDH but less powerful in a Maelstrom deck because you don't want to waste cascades on relatively weak 1-mana cards.

Here's a link to my Maelstrom Wanderer deck. It hasn't been updated in a long time, so take it with a grain of salt. I built it to maximize the power of Maelstrom's double Cascade. I tried to make sure every card in the deck would have an impact during most stages of the game.

He's legal in Legacy, Vintage, EDH/Archmage, and Kitchen Table Casual.

He's also legal in Conspiracy Draft (Duh)

Burn decks don't want to run this because it costs 5 mana and doesn't deal damage. If doubling your damage matters by the time you have 5 lands in play, you're doing something horribly wrong.

It's a great deal in the current market if you really needed one and don't care about condition. It may end up being a poor long-term investment if they reprint fetches in the next block or two.

Depends entirely upon how well B/W/u humans does in the near future. If he turns it into a T1 deck, then his price will probably be similar to Thassa in her prime.

Why can't you Pod it out? I'm not trying to say that he's gonna be the new big thing for Pod, but I think he's worth testing.

Remember that he's a creature in all zones except the battlefield, even when your devotion is not met.

It's good. Really good. If only for the Haste.

I'd be willing to read this type of article.

It doubles the price of the deck, but I've found Kiora, the Crashing Wave to be much stronger than Urban Evolution . And I love me some urban evolution. It's my favorite card from that set.
