What is this magic?

Yeah there's a lot of people in there who don't understand Magic and are coming from other digital CCGs (as there should be). But they don't understand how deeply ingrained Magic is.

I saw a post yesterday with somebody complaining about cards that needed to be fixed (like they do in Hearth or Legends). One of them was (of course) Teferi.

I had to explain that's not the way it worked and had him look up Rampaging Ferocidon.

Demanding Dragon is pretty strong, but having 3x a 5 mana bomb when your curve runs so low seems real awkward. You may just want to run a better low end card.

Like I feel like 3x Lightning Strike would just be more practical. 3 to face or creature is easy early game damage/removal.

It's been a week, so I'm coming back at you guys again with my Esper Control deck, Teferi's Sacrament. Been having a lot of fun with the deck. Sanguine Sacrament is a good time.

Check it out, share your feedback, and upvote it if you think I'm good-looking. I'll be updating the deck with results as I complete MTGA Events. And once I finally get an actual Mythic wildcard, I can grab Chromium and see if I prefer him or Nezahal.

That awkward moment when constantly posting memes is a bad thing.

I work for an LGS and our owner recently got his hands on the 2017 SDCC Planeswalker set. He put it up on our facebook for people to show interest in, but a week later nobody has said anything (which is surprising for some of the collectors we have around here). I asked him if he wanted me to find a virtual buyer and he said go for it.

Here's some details on the set, via TCG, if you're curious. Note that's not our posting. Just the most relevant details on the set in general.

The asking price on the original facebook post was $190. With shipping long distance and everything considered, that price might vary in the final offer, but that's $50 less than market average on TCG, so pretty good deal. He can be pretty agreeable on serious offers.

If you're interested, DM me and I'll get you in contact with the owner.

Thanks in advance for your interest.

I knew it was being used in eternal formats but I didn't know it was that good.

Also Mardu aggro would be spicy. Haven't seen a decent Mardu deck since Khans of Tarkir when the color combo got its name.

Yes you can use older reprints. As long as that card itself has been reprinted into Standard, you can use nearly any printing of it.

I can use an Alpha Shivan Dragon in place of the M19 Shivan Dragon. They're still the same card.

If you're looking strictly at GRN cards, your best bet is probably going to be Mentor (aggro) decks. That or Surveil. Undergrowth is decent but not strong enough by itself in comparison I think. doesn't have enough token generators to work with in house (though you could maybe splash a few Convoke cards into an aggro deck and make it Naya .

And the Jump-Start is cool, but nothing that really sustains itself. You could probably make a halfway decent counter-burn deck though. There are a handful of creatures that get value off off of instant and sorceries in graveyard. Not to mention Goblin Electromancer is in this standard. It actually may not be as bad as an idea as I thought as I'm writing this. And if you're willing to go grab some Guttersnipe from M19, you got a fun deck there. Splash in a few Ral, Izzet Viceroy and it feels like a real deck.

What format are you aiming for? You're fine for Modern (and I'm assuming that's the goal) as long as you aren't intent on running Sickening Dreams, as it was only really printed in Torment. The Graveborn is just a reprint set.

Yeah I just replied to the most recent "UWx too stronk" post and basically said - "Learn how to play against control. Kthxbye."

There's just a lot of highly negative people floating around the forums. It really irks me. Like you're in a free Open Beta. You're literally there to break the game. Don't cry when it breaks.

I also love seeing the people saying that normal magic interactions are a problem. Such as one fellow today who was complaining the game was broken because the Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip he stole from his opp's graveyard with The Eldest Reborn returned to his opp's control when he activated it's ability.

Reading the Player Support of the MTG:A forums is quite literally painful.

So many people either:

  1. Don't understand how forums work
  2. Don't understand how tech support works
  3. Shouldn't have a computer
  4. All the above (my personal favorite)

There's no WotC defined nature to colorless, but this MTG wiki does do a bit of background on it.

I see you too are a fan of Mr. Rosum. He played super well this weekend.

But you're essentially right. Go to unstoppable beats with Chromium, the Mutable, infinitely loop Teferi, Hero of Dominaria, or (most commonly) watch your opp concede cause they're sick of your crap.

I dont think anybody is saying it won't work.

As a temporary holding spot it would be okay, though not having the flashback on a stick (creature) could be a bit of a disruption for the deck, but Snappy is probably the better option once you HAVE an option.

Teferi, Hero of Dominaria is a win condition in himself.

If you manage to protect him enough to ult him, then you can just continue to cycle him. That's why he's a consistent 3 or 4 of in most control decks.

If you ult Teferi, you literally just slowly chip away at your opponent's board state until they eventually have nothing.

Even if they refuse to concede because they think you'll eventually draw yourself out first (which is inevitable as a control deck), you can use Teferi's -3 to just keep putting him back in your library and casting him each turn so you never actually draw out.

Here's me doing the same thing with Teferi for 9 minutes because this guy refused to concede. You can ignore the audio. Just random discord conversation and I actually forgot to have my mic registered for the recording - so it doesn't make much sense.

Not GRN, but released around the same time. I just thoroughly enjoy this art.
