RussischerZar - Human Advisor

Hi,

I usually just play online casually through either Cockatrice or the Duels of the Planeswalkers series. As of recently I can also sometimes be found on MTGO. I also like limited and attend most prerelease events, where I got the bulk of my paper cards.

Hit me up if you like to play or want to trade stuff on MTGO although my collection there is rather limited. If you have some free ones to give away though, I'm looking to expand my collection without paying too much. :)

Also, have a good article on building manabases, you're welcome.

TBH this story was kind of meh. It felt more like an in-between chapter than anything else. Nothing really happened other than letting us know the Raven Man is still around (potentially a figment of Liliana's imagination?) and that the Chain Veil is haunting her.

It could also be like the 20 packaging with 2 of the pre-release packs replaced by some additional promo stuff like the Ugin boosters in the FRF pre-release.

July 29, 2015 11:09 a.m.

How about: They don't do faction packs since there are no seeded boosters? Since they scrapped the seeded boosters because they didn't want to force players into making an early choice, having faction based boosters would be kind of the reverse, right?

18 might just be a more convenient way of packaging than 20.

Also, having a card that is "strictly better" doesn't mean Wizards wouldn't do it.

Dismiss vs Contradict
Fall of the Hammer vs Tail Slash
Impulse vs Anticipate
The list goes on.

They could totally do mono-colored fetches it in a set that has some sort of Landfall mechanic. Oh hey, isn't that a Zendikar block around the corner?

July 29, 2015 6:29 a.m.

I heard that a good trick against humidity (which apparently works well for warped foils e.g. from the FtV series) is by putting the warped cards together with some silica gel. This should remove any excess humidity that might have crept into the paper and thus reflatten them.

Well, people might make different mulligan decisions. E.g. if I know I'm against mono red aggro and have a really slow hand, I'm more inclined to mulligan than against a control deck.

@ TheAnnihilator: No, the Swift Reckoning would see an illegal target upon resolution and then be countered by the game rules.

Who knows, maybe she does actually care a bit about Jace. And helping him there might get him to help her in her own troubles, so it could be a strategic move to go to Zendikar and help.

Just saying that story-wise the possibility is still there, even if she said "no" as a first reaction. Obviously if the people on the panel 100% confirmed her not being there, that's another thing.

July 22, 2015 6:22 p.m.

Well, she could have second thoughts or something. Then again, she IS black.

Gorgosaurusrex: this is actually a really baller idea :D

July 22, 2015 6:02 p.m.

So we might actually have Liliana on Zendikar after all.

I have to say that the appearance of Gideon was a bit weird though as in the last story he collapsed on the stairs that went to the chamber of the Guildpact from exhaustion. I would believe such a thing would be reported to the Living Guildpact himself, right?

Anyway, a very cool story. I'm guessing next week will be Liliana week? :D

That could actually be a reasonable hate card for manlands.

Said on THE MONARCH FORMAT...

#15

Yeah, I meant what Epoch said. Just a suggestion, I knew you wouldn't like it :P

Anyway another question: what about Mistform Ultimus? Does he count as Illusion or actually all creature types? And what about Changeling creatures? Can they go into any deck?

July 21, 2015 1:24 p.m.

Said on THE MONARCH FORMAT...

#16

I would not list every single Conspiracy and Ante card in the banned list but rather write "All cards refering to Ante and all cards with the Conspiracy type are banned".

If the purpose of the format is for commons and uncommons to be played, why not make a clean cut from some block, like Modern did? Especially with the Mythic Rare restriction, where Mythic Rare was introduced with the Alara block.

The downside would be that many EDH staples are not being able to be played, the upside is that those "crappy Standard cards that you have lying around" would be played more often.

The problem I have with most commanders is that the "build around" seems too straight forward.

Build around Lady Orca and you're my hero. :P

Starke of Rath.

I'm currently planning on building a Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs chaos deck, but it's still in the "random card gathering" phase.

I already use multiple different apps for card searching, trading and life counting but I'm rather happy with the ones I currently use.

I haven't found a better one for Commander stuff yet and from the looks of the screenshot, yours isn't better either. I might give it a shot anyway.

+1 would play at FNM.

I also would mainboard the 4 Phyrexian Revokers.
