abby315 Wife of Bloodbraid Elf

I brew a lot of decks, some competitive, most just for fun because I don't have the money to buy the cards for real. Working on getting up a nice collection of cards. :)

I love to help with suggestions and I love to hear them, too, so leave me comments or requests! I'd be happy to take a look at a deck you want help with-- just leave the link on my wall and any questions you have.

Happy brewing!

Oh wow, that's insane. Gisela must have wanted some time off to chill so she detoured.

Thanks! Pleasure trading with you!

The only things of yours I'd really want are the Torrential Gearhulk and maybe the Glen Elendra Archmage. Since the two are only about $65, we've got a long ways to go towards the revised Volcanic.

Hey dude, I always see you if people need help with their decks or have any questions etc. :D. Maybe you could help me too with my deck Darwin's Natural Selection of your Library? Yesterday I won three times in a row with this but I am not sure about the Mana Curve you know? Your help would make me very happy! :) Thank you very much!

My Scooze is m14. And I'm fine with the trade! Go ahead and initiate!

I could do Windswept Heath if you want

July 24, 2017 12:56 p.m.

I'll take the Mutavault then! Along with the Spellstutter

July 23, 2017 1:21 p.m.

I'd take the Spellstutter Sprite, and maybe the Cryptic Commands. I don't want the Damnation because of the difference in value that I can't really afford right now, and if that's the Mutavault I think it is, that's like $600. I have to talk to one of my friends about his Cryptic Commands, but if not, I'll be interested in yours.

Said on Top Decks...


On the homepage, the list of decks you see are the "Latest" tab. If you go to the top of the list you'll see it. Next to that tab should be "Top," which is an easy way to get to what you're talking about. There'll also be tabs for "First" deckcycle, "Help," and then hubs you've added as your favorite.

Said on Is there any ......


Dredge4life: yeah, that's why it's best to have targets that replace themselves like Kitchen Finks and Voice. But yeah. Like I said, it's just not as good as Pod, but it certainly can play like it anyway.

Said on Is there any ......


To echo what others said, I don't think Evo is ever going to be better than CoCo, especially now that there's a 2-card infinite (ish) combo that can be fetched with it. Similarly, I think the Traverse the Ulvenwald G/B/x decks might be the best shell for a tutor value deck.

However, that doesn't mean you can't make a serviceable pod type deck. I worked on one when Evo came out: Angel Pod, Evolved

It won't be tier 1 (even counters company waffles between 1-2 as it's just so susceptible to hate) but if you want a fun toolboxy deck that is supposed to play like Pod, there's a place to start! I never got to sleeve it up because I built a legacy deck instead, but I don't think it's far off the mark.

(As you can see in the comments on that deck, even people then thought CoCo was strictly better--but as you've said, the one upside with evo is consistency! Plus I like the ease of siding into a Rock deck.)

lemme consider that for a bit! Have pics of the two?

Said on Got any trades? ......


See anything in my binder for the Karakas or Yavimaya Hollow? Lmk! :)

August 15, 2017 10:42 p.m.

Yes. Unless it says "use this only as a sorcery," activated abilities on creatures are instant speed.

August 15, 2017 9:02 p.m.

Well, in a strict sense it's worth it because it's RL, so if you ever want to play it in a deck you should pick it up now rather than later. (The foil price just super spiked, so...)

But otherwise, if you're not playing Rings, you can just replace it with a random mana artifact. Or you can run something like Lavinia of the Tenth, which is can be a soft lock on the table.

August 14, 2017 9:36 p.m.

You are correct. Looking at is a different action.

August 14, 2017 6:52 p.m.

Some considerations, but I don't play the deck so final judgment is all yours:

Crumble to Dust vs Tron is an all star, and probably more consistent than the two-card LD+Surgical combo. At the very least it can support it.

Chalice of the Void > Trinisphere vs combo except for budget considerations. It's really useful vs storm and probably a good investment overall.

INSTEAD you could actually look into Eidolon of the Great Revel. They can't win with it on the field, and the resources they put into removing it may save you enough time to take them off the necessary lands. Eidolon isn't bad vs burn, either.

Said on berryjon...


Hey berryjon, just letting you know Pattern Recognition has its own article category now. I changed #40 to be in it when it goes live. If you'd rather just use 'Features', let me know and I can get rid of the category. :)

Said on Where are all ......


It's a multi-step collaborative process with the community, so it takes time. I've just accepted a bunch of card submissions, so they should start appearing in the next couple minutes. Don't worry if you can't link them or add them to a deck immediately, sometimes it takes a couple hours for the site cache to catch up.

If you notice any are still missing, if you're an upgraded member you can add them to the system yourself by going to the C17 set in "Cards" and clicking "Add/Fix cards."
