I am Red/Black
I am Red/Black

My name is Don and I'm a magic player.

This is my card. There are many like it but this one is mine.

I started playing with my brother back in alpha with green ramp and took a break around when Mercidian Masques rotated out. When I deployed to Afghanistan a couple of my friends brought their decks and we would play. I would play with my old land destruction sliver killer deck (Lure + Venom + Thresher Beast) and do alright so I decided to get some more cards and took it from there.

I have a lot of decks in paper and I'm still adding as I get time. Really would love help with ANY of them. I love bouncing ideas off of other players so I can find good cards for my decks.

So it occurred to me yesterday that Feldon + Thousand-Year Elixir + Worldgorger Dragon in the grave is an infinite loop for infinite mana, or if you have a purphorous or valakut, damage.

So I have a deck or two with custom categories, is there a way to change how they are displayed? Like currently I have it split into creatures by cmc, artifacts, enchants, etc but they display in the order of lands, cmc8, artifacts, cmc1 etc. Is there a way to make them order sequentially rather than disjointed?

That's not a Bard, THIS is a Bard. for reference.

A note on the example above a lot of times people will run one of each basic and one of each snow basic out of consideration of cards like Tainted Pact (obviously not in derevi's case but not the point) that care about not hitting two cards named the same. There are a few out there so it IS a thing

I was testing Nameless Inversion in a delirium side focused 8 rack deck using Whispers of Emrakul didn't really pan out but it DID enable delirium very nicely.

That's what I get for trying to read cards at 12.30 am. Misread Koth as Karn, apologies.

January 23, 2017 10:09 a.m.

You can use Nameless Inversion as well.

January 23, 2017 8:56 a.m.

Koth isn't from mirrodin.

See this is the problem like I mentioned before. Koth CREATED mirrodin while he was already a planeswalker.

I'm predicting more than to be honest.

Fatal Push does a MASSIVE amount work when paired with Snappy.

Grixis Delver/Control are looking REALLY strong. A few sticking points is most of the creatures in those lists are Delve creatures and are thus immune to Push and goyf looks real bad with Push in the format.

January 21, 2017 4:57 p.m.

Part of the problem with this list is for some walkers where we first encounter them is NOT where they are from and we don't always know where they are from.

For example, until Theros we didn't know that's where Gideon was from. We would naturally assume he was from Bant. Additionally, some planeswalkers choose to make a home on the first plane they walk to meaning that could throw things off as well.

Also, you are missing Bolas

TheAlexGnan That's a fairly good analysis, there is a weakness there that's annoying, Silence aims to combat that but it can do it in a fairly unique way.

The strength of this combo is that Sram/Puresteel don't need to stick around for a turn or more to work since they don't need haste. Silence has a unique "test the waters" appeal here. If you're playing a matchup where you expect removal you can wait till you have 3 mana and lead off with a Silence. If it resolves then you are clear to drop the draw engine and go to combo. If it doesn't resolve you have likely tapped them out. Similarly you can T2 a engine, then on T3 do the same as described before, this way they HAVE to kill what you have on the table because you can just drop the second. (This doesn't work for 2x Sram but /shrug)

Now, all that being said, game 1 is a coinflip for some matchups, you just gotta hope they don't have the required cards to stop you. Game 2 however, is why I have Swan Song in the side. With that added you can usually safely go off. (Mentor + Swan Song, cutting Retracts and Grapeshot can also work well in those matchups.)

Clockwurk if you are equipping for free to gaveleer every kite shield gives a static +2/+3 to gaveleer.

TheRedGoat yeah, gaveleer is fine although it, Swiftspear, and Storm Entity all fall victim to easy removal. Monastery Mentor will always leave behind at least one Monk token so it's much harder to 1:1.

As far as additional grapeshots I don't really need/want any, any more than one can be a dead draw when you needed another equipment and if you are storming off you are going to be drawing your deck anyways.

I usually use it in my Azami deck as High Tide #2. Only good for the turn that I'm winning. I usually don't expose it to removal.

I used to run a more casual Omnath combo deck that focused on Primal Surge so getting to 10 mana by T1 dork, T2 omnath/lens/etc was the way to win

Lab Man can easily be countered, Grapeshot can't. Also generating 3 mana in the combo turn is difficult

It's used as Retract 5-6.

Before you cast your last equipment you can revival for 0 and put Retract back on top to continue the combo.

It can also be used to get back other things but in most cases it's just retract.

I would HIGHLY discourage trying to play this deck without Opals and lands.

You NEED the opals to get the extra mana during the combo phase to cast the grapeshot not to mention opals are your most reliable way of casting Retract for . You can with paradise mantle but only once and only if your 2/2 stuck around for a turn.

The problem with Spire of Industry is I have to play an artifact before I can tap it for W which likely means I missed a draw. Sometimes that's not such a big deal but most of the time every draw matters. Adding to this is the fact that if you wanted any color you can just run Mana Confluence, City of Brass, or Glimmervoid (though GV suffers from the same problem that Spire does in that you have to play an artifact.)

Not overly, I mean sure with no interaction sometimes yeah but not always

January 17, 2017 7:24 p.m.

How about a T3 win in commander? Seems pretty dreamy to me :)

I love the red gearhulk, best one imo

It's too bad emrakul is banned. I was surprised no one put the red gearhulk together with her.

To be fair, Yisan can't tutor for his main non-creature combo pieces either.

I look at Selvala much like Yisan in that with Yisan you tutor for ramp to facilitate the combo, with Selvala it's in your command zone already you just need the other parts of it.

You sacrifice consistency and tutoring from the command zone for explosiveness and a combo piece in the command zone.

This has always been how I viewed Overlord V.S. Queen but they have access to Demonic Tutor et all so consistency is needed less.
