I originally started playing Magic when I was about 8 years old. My older brother played and I wanted in on it, so I grabbed an Alpha starter deck at my LGS and would buy boosters when I had some money. I played casual with neighborhood kids up to Urza's Saga, Destiny, and Legacy, then sold my collection and took a long break.

I jumped back in when my brother got my son into it just as Return to Ravnica was released. We started going to FNM pretty regularly. I like playing Standard, Modern, and Commander.

Standard: UW Tempo

Modern: Soul Sisters

Commander: Grand Arbiter Augustine IV Prison

Sigarda, Heron's Grace Humans

I love to trade toward finishing my decks so please check out my binder. Currently, I am looking to finish a few things off for my Modern deck and need some Commander goodies as well.

Thanks for the trade mate! Came in yesterday but I hadn't had a chance to update it yet.

Hey! Sorry it took so long for me to get back to you. I needed to sort out some things with other people I was working towards trading with. So, would you care to do your Sidisi, Undead Vizier and Soulfire Grand Master for my Mystic Confluence?

Cool, I have a bunch of random $1 cards in a separate list as well. Link in binder.

Not sure I want to put Ugin towards cards for the Delirium deck cause I might not be making it anymore. However I could do my Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger for Nahiri, the Harbinger and Tireless Tracker. That work? That's around $1.50 in my favor so I can add something to balance it.

It was actually set in before the hype spike, but it did go towards 2 Ancestral Vision so I won't complain too much about missing the spike

Probably a mistake, but I think I'll hold on the her for now :/ sorry man, good luck finding one.

Nixin72 says... #18

Alright. Well, I share cards with my girlfriend, so I'll let her know about the trade and get back to you by tomorrow evening at the latest about it :)

But yea, I totally get you. I bought a little more SOI than I probably should've, so now I'm trying to make a little of it back.

April 10, 2016 11:08 a.m.

Nixin72 says... #19

@capriom85- you've got an Arlinn Kord Flip in your trade binder and I might be looking to play her, so I could probably make a deal for the Arlinn Kord Flip. You have a Game Trail I could probably use as well. Could probably work something out among those.

However, I'm more looking to sell most of the cards in my binder, not trade them away as much. I'd be willing to make the trade, but if you're at all interested in buying I'd love to do that instead. Again, not everyone likes to buy, there's a reason we use tapped out.

I play UW spirits right now for fun. It's not my competitive deck, but no one takes it seriously and I have been winning against everything but humans right now.

May 5, 2016 8:33 p.m.

amazingdan, she sure is a spirit. Not sure why I excluded her. Anyway, my spec on Bishop mostly comes from the assumption that EM will give us some better spirit support. The new lore from uncharted realms gives me hope for a new Saint Traft of sorts, or maybe a possessed human/spirit Thalia. It's total guess work, but I'm hoping the support happens. One good too end finisher and sports could be viable. I agree that it's a sub or humans build now, but one thing it does have going for it is the flying. Humans only does that by including Gryff's Boon. Another thing it has on its side is Rattlechains and the "blink, give a +1/+1 counter", both to help against removal. It's not competitive at the highest level yet, but I believe it can be if EM gives us what we need.

May 5, 2016 8:23 p.m.

I am speculating that Bygone Bishop will be a thing. He sees fringe play right now, but not really a top 8'er, seeing a spot as only a 1 of in a humans list. Currently it is sitting at $1.25 on TCG, which is a bit higher than it was a little while ago. I think people are picking their sets up now as a "just in case" precaution. I personally grabbed a large quantities when he was $0.75 and am holding onto them.

Supporting my spec is the fact that we have some girly playable spirits right now in standard that fit into the low cmc that makes him a draw engine: Topplegeist, Rattlechains, and Bygone Bishop would all be automatic 4 of slots in a spirit based deck. Reflector Mage does not fit the mold for what Rattlechains can do, but he does let you investigate. I'm speculating we may see the bishops around $5 before their run in standard is over.

Sweet. Been brewing a very similar list myself!

May 4, 2016 8:41 p.m.

So...is Thalia possessed by Traft? Clearly in no malevolent way, but is that what's happening here...he is literally working through her?

If that's the case we can rule out any new Traft card...but a new Thalia would be very interesting.

Yes...and for that particular reason I think I'd prefer to have an Academy Ruins...doesn't die like a creature. It also doesn't grab Ghostly Prison or Rhystic Study back either. Decisions decisions.

Like everyone said: Dump Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip immediately. She is a sub $10 Planeswalker after rotation.

Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip can do anything, but my advice says he will drop significantly after he rotates out of standard. The fact that most decks run him, and at a playset, really drives his price right now.

Novelty alone will be a waste I think. You'll regret it at $135. Buy the cards you'll use.

What do you reckon the debate may be over?

May 4, 2016 9:22 a.m.

griffstick, I look at it as adding less versatility as the deck would naturally need to drop some spells and creatures to add artifacts and enchantments. Locks me into a mono centric play style. She screams "combo or die" as my ply style too

Any white based deck in modern is at least looking at this thing. Hoses tokens as stated above, BUT even with the drawback 2: draw a are is expensive in modern. If it were a card, no one would play it. Anyway...eventually they will use the clue to draw. The main point here, though, white decks that are maxed out on Path to Exile will be looking at this for extra removal slots. I have my eyes on it for my Soul Sisters deck, so that's an idea of what wants it right away. Any deck that runs white will want at least one to side against tokens. You have hype on your side now, but just a cautionary bit of advice, I unloaded some modern playable a while they were still standard and regretted it. Voice of Resurgence, my foil Deathrite Shamans, etc burned me bad because I unloaded them too early. Give it a minute and follow what modern decks are doing with it.

The payoff is by all means AMAZING given certain creature types. You hit it right with Eldrazi. My issue is look at what 4cmc cards see play in Modern. The payoff is generally huge and immediate. This is something that took me a little while to learn myself. In modern a 4 drop needs to almost end the game. Let's say you do ramp into this...then your opponent bounces the creature it's on and you lose it. Let's say opponent bounces the enchantment...now they have effectively Time Walked you since it will be another turn wasted playing it and hoping it sticks around. Then what happens when you hit 3 lands and 2 spells? I think it's too inefficient to be playable, at least on the competitive level. Put it this way...this card wants to be in a tribal EDH or casual deck where it's like to pay off. If it fit into the colors of my Sigarda, Heron's Grace EDH deck is be playing it as a second Descendants' Path, but it's blue so...maybe it can be in wizard or Merfolk tribal? The singleton format leaves Eldrazi a little too iffy for this to me.

May 4, 2016 9:14 a.m.

My current group hates my Arbiter deck. Actually posted a forum about it before asking how oppressive is too oppressive for non-competitive competitive play. Anyway...I usually have a response to stop anyone going infinite with anything. I'm intrigued by the idea that Hanna retrieves stuff for me on a regular basis. I'd build both but I'd have to buy so many high value duplicates of staples it's not worth it since both builds would be so similar. I could see including Hanna in my 99, though.

Too fragile?

May 4, 2016 8:12 a.m.

Grand Arbiter Augustin IV

Hanna, Ship's Navigator

So I have this Grand Arbiter EDH prison deck. Ghostly Prison, Propaganda, monastery seige, etc. I have been getting a lot of suggestions to put Arbiter in the 99 and make Hanna my general. Thoughts from the community? Does the dynamic of the deck HAVE to change necessarily or do this, or can it stay 50/50 between enchantment/artifact and creatures/spells? What are the benefits and drawbacks of Hanna? I have never played with her.
