ToolmasterOfBrainerd Creature - Super Saiyan Legend

Hi everybody, welcome to my profile page! If you are looking for Figag, you've found him. I just changed my account name recently. I also recently upgraded and I'll need some time to figure out my name coloring. Just hang on while I mess with it. Thanks for complying!

Before you go any further, there are 2 things you should know about me. The First: If I ever come off as knowing absolutely nothing about magic, please keep in mind that I'm a newer player. I am constantly learning and trying to improve. So if you are adamant that I suck as a deck builder from an incident from awhile ago, please give me another chance. I openly admit that I have been wrong in the past and am still wrong more often than I'd like to be. If I say a 'good' card is 'bad' and list wrong reasoning, please let me know or give me a month to learn otherwise and then give me another shot. The Second: If you have any problems with me as a user, PLEASE talk to me about it. I respect all of you other deckbuilders (with 1 exception) and want to be on your side because we all have something to learn from each other. Just blocking me accomplishes nothing except make me likely to do it again to some other user, which isn't fair to them. Feel free to block me, but I'd like to try to resolve our differences first. Trust me, I won't hold anything against anyone (with 1 exception) because we all have our bad moments, myself included.

My favorite card has to be Haunter of Nightveil with Unsummon as a close second mainly because of the flavor text. (If anyone has an unsummon foil, let me know. I might be interested.) My favorite colors are . My favorite set, no joke, is Dragon's Maze. I think I'm the only one, but I pulled my first mythic rare ever out of my first Dragon's Maze pack, so it has a special place for me. I have not been playing magic for long but have enjoyed it a lot and am loving the modern format.

I am fairly active on this site and try to give and ask for help frequently. I am best with and decks because that's what I play. Not gonna lie, I can really only help with modern decks, but I know the format fairly well and am happy to help! If you have an original deck you want me to look at, leave a comment. Anything I don't know about a format / colors I can learn and try to help with. I also love looking at original and creative ideas.

I'm mostly a Johnny with a little Spike, but not much. I am naturally a competitive person, but I would rather lose every game than win with a netdeck. It's just who I am.

For trading I mainly use pucatrade to get the cards I need. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants great reliability and fantastic availability for getting cards. Please use this link to sign up if you do join. Thanks!

So that's all for me, please check out my decks below, especially Rocket Science because it is my pride and joy and needs a lot of work, so please help me. +1's to my decks are also always appreciated! If you just wanna chat, that's cool too.

Is Cathartic Reunion viable in Rocket Science/A Ghastly Vision? Or is Faithless Looting preferred for its turn one capabilities?

I am having some more trouble with technical issues. Is it possible to delete updates you place on a deck, or am I being forgetful again?

Sultai Shadow

So, the Ryan Overturf list is weird... and exciting! Seeing the synergies between Street Wraith and Tasigur, the Golden Fang made me shiver. A third Tasigur, the Golden Fang sounds OK... maybe cutting the Murderous Cut for it? I think that four Thought Scour is pretty essential. I use it as a second playset of Faithless Looting, and of course it fuels Tasigur, the Golden Fang. Thoughts?

Jeezus. Jamming that in delver never crossed my mind. I can't possibly judge how well it works. Don't currently have the time to test it either, but if you do, feel free to report results.

This list begs one question: How viable is Death's Shadow grixis in general? Drop goyf and traverse, and you have a deck that can pump out tasigur and angler easily on turn 2. Why not run Street Wraith and Mishra's Bauble as well? Like:

4 snappy

4 shadow

4 wraith

2 tasigur

2 angler

4 bauble

4 bolt

4 scour

And so on. Do you see where i'm going with this?

Would be cool to experiment with, at least.

The downside would be our "goyfs" are smaller, but we get value from snappy and dont have to worry about delirium or goyf-count. We also get deck manipulation in blue

Is Esper, Jeskai, or Grixis better to build midrange/control deck around?

Said on W: Blood Moon, ......


Hey, looking for 3 Blood Moon and 1 Flooded Strand. Mainly have 1 Creeping Tar Pit, 1 Bloodstained Mire, and 1 Entomb. Other smaller stuff is in my binder. I also have some unlisted stuff that I'm not eager to part with but not opposed; please leave a message if you have a blood moon and I can look through your binder to see if I have anything unlisted. I can also make up differences with cash, but would prefer to trade.

I'd prefer to use tcgmarket pricing since the tappedout price on most of those is wrong, if that's okay. For reference, at the time of posting, here are the market prices:

Blood moon (MM3): $20.64

Flooded Strand (KTK): $14.18

Creeping Tar Pit (WWK): $18.74

Bloodstained Mire (KTK): $14.96

Entomb (GRV): $11.59

That's what most successful lists are, as far as I'm aware. I'm no expert, but thopter gifts is too slow and brain gifts is too soft to disruption.

March 16, 2017 9:13 p.m.

To be honest, neither build is super great. Esper gifts is just fine without either.

March 16, 2017 8:45 p.m.

Any 2 damage card is almost always NOT worth playing. Rift Bolt and Lava Spike are the only things I would seriously consider. If there's a lot of Lingering Souls in your meta I'd strongly recommend Electrolyze instead of Forked Bolt. Electrolyze can be thrown at your opponent EOT their turn if you don't have a target just to cantrip.

The Other 15

What do I do with those other 15 cards?
