I'll gladly trade an up-vote for content of that caliber any day of the week! I've been dabbling in modern for the last 6 months, settling on ETron (and all of its variations) for my first deck and quickly decided Ponza and GB Midrange were next on my list. I very much appreciate the effort you obviously went through.

No problem for the upvote! I like your ponza decks and that is the next deck I'm building since Bloodbraid Elf is unbanned. It seems like a great addition to this deck with Tireless Tracker and Eternal Witness.

Thanks a lot! By the way, if you have any suggestions for better names on any of my deck (especially the tricycle one), please let me know. You can see all my serious decks by clicking the Deck Library of the Oreskos Folder. Your names are so much better than mine, so just thought I'd ask. Thanks again!

If you're feeling generous, see if any of the buttons work. LOL!

If you go to any of the decks in my profile, can you see the upvote button? I think I might be the only one seeing it, and that everybody else just sees code, but I'm not sure.

Thanks for the Holla! mate.

I always wondered if anyone besides me read those reports.

How's life?

That's a REALLY great summary, Boza; thanks tons!

As we approach DOM this summer, you should seriously consider doing up a series of "TL;DR" articles for those of us who are super-interested in Dominaria lore, but a little intimidated by the sheer volume of it ...

I didn't want to spam your deck or Reddit thread, but here's my (non-CoCo) list, just in case you're interested.

Draw well!

Most of my advice for starting on MTGO is over on this post but I'm happy to answer any other Qs you may have! You can hit me here of course, or on MTGO (I'm clayperce there too).

Ok, I know it's not within current Standard-legal cards, but maybe you can put this on your list for later:

Spoiler because it's from DOM: Show

There are some great low-CMC Legendaries already, and we're sure to get more in Dominaria. It just seems like a really fun build-around ...

March 14, 2018 2:42 p.m.

Just barely though, Argy.

There are a bunch of us (dozens, at least!) still holding out, waaaaay back in the Mountains: "Sure you can have my mana pool. When you pry it from my cold, dead hands ..."

I was wondering about In Bolas' Clutches too.

It's #4 of the Story Spotlight Cards (per the release notes), which implies Bolas (if he shows up at all) won't show up until the very end of the story arc. This bolsters AgentGreen's idea, because that would be a nice transition (story-wise) into this summer's Core set.

Here are the spotlight cards and some thoughts:

  1. Broken Bond (1G, Sorcery, Destroy target artifact or enchantment. You may put a land card from your hand onto the battlefield.) No idea what this one is about.
  2. Final Parting (no info yet). No idea what this one is about either.
  3. Settle the Score (2BB, Sorcery, Exile target creature. Put two loyalty counters on a planeswalker you control). This sounds like Lili, killing off Belzenlok
  4. In Bolas's Clutches (2UU, Legendary Enchantment, You control enchanted permanent). Maybe Bolas somehow getting control of Lili? Or maybe the Weatherlight?

It may not be what you're looking for, but you can get another turn out of Arachnus Web with something like Sundial of the Infinite.

And for Serious Ponza too :-)

She'll be there. From this article:

Dominaria's story starts right after the events of Hour of Devastation. Gideon and Liliana have arrived on Dominaria following the Gatewatch's defeat at the hands of Nicol Bolas. Together, they begin a mission to kill Belzenlok, the final demon holding Liliana's contract.

I don't own any, but would pick up an Arlinn Kord  Flip one in a heartbeat, if they existed.

This all reminds me of MaRo's "Sparks" comics, which I haven't read in forever. Thanks for the excuse to catch up on them!

March 11, 2018 10:03 a.m.

You're doing it exactly right. Like berryjon mentions, Rule 509.4 applies.

FWIW, I play Modern Infect and was on RG Pummeler for a long time in Standard too, and would get an opponent kinda like that that every now and then. Usually they were just a little clueless rather than malicious, but there was one I wondered about. For him, I always just called a Judge. Though I seriously considered printing up this great chart and pulling it out too ...

March 10, 2018 11:52 p.m.

That's great that Simian Spirit Guide has been working for you, but it has yet to be played in a deck listed on on of the sites in Step 2 Option 3, so we haven't included it here. We're still reworking the resources listed in Step 4 though, which will a perfect place for new tech like that.

And yeah, a White splash is definitely doable ... the Noble Moon example in Step 2 Option 2 is the first competitive deck to make it work, but it probably won't be the last.

Thanks much for your comments and draw well!
