Wish I could edit. I meant to say $195 Cad or $145 Usd. I was hoping for a bit more from that box though, they can however vary greatly in value it seems.

At the least I got a Verdant Catacombs and foil Serum Visions for infect.

Wasn't aware of that article, thanks for sharing it!

Have you happened to open any Mm2017 as of yet? I spent about $195 or $145 usd on so far splitting a booster box with a friend, attending a draft and afterwards buying an extra pack. The box was a bit of a disappointment, there were 2 fetchlands (a verdant and arid) so one for each of us.

The mythics weren't all that exciting, Domri Rade, Past in Flames, and Sphinx's Revelation, while the only other somewhat decent(?) Rares and uncommons were a Death's Shadow, Grafdigger's Cage, Venser, Shaper Savant, Path to Exile and a foil Serum Visions.

From the draft I got a Craterhoof Behemoth but that's about it, however I placed 5th out of 19 players, and I even got to deal 80+ damage to an opponent one game which was fun.

Lol look what won a modern event. It's a deck called "Seismic Swans."

Good going on your success with your Modern deck.

You need to get rid of their damn Anti-Infect cards!

I'm not surprised that people are playing them. I hear that Infect is a well-known Modern archetype, and one of the stronger decks.

Sorry it took me so long to reply. I'm a bit over Magic at the moment.

Although we have found an EDH play group that we like better and have been having a bit more fun with that.

StuBi kicked Rite of Replication targetting Final Iteration  Flip on Monday and whacked us all down to zero. That would never have happened in our other play group.

Good times.

Big plays like that are what I love about EDH.

Monothopters [Frontier] getting to number 1 spot was kind of hollow.

Can't see myself doing that again in a hurry.

I'd rather have my decks voted for because they are clever idea.

Argeaux says... #6

I never want to go through that again.

I did initially think about chasing up the folder-no-voters, but I kind of respect their right to do that.

Even if they are filthy, horrible, dirty scum. lol

I resorted to this.

Renamed my deck to America is already fricken great and put this as the first thing in the Description:

"Hit +1 Upvote if you think that America doesn't need to be made great again, it's ALREADY great.

Hit the downvote button if you don't think America is great.

Oh, that's right, there IS no downvote button because of COURSE America is great.

[Written, spoken and authorized by S. "Grim Reaper" Bannon.]"

If people are smart they will see that I'm actually taking the piss with the "Grim Reaper" reference, by most of them will just go, "America great. PLUS 1!!"

That is EXACTLY what's happened. Votes coming in left and right since I made the change.

I'm about to get my swear on.

I wouldn't read the following if you hate foul language.

Goddamit I'm tired of these fuckers who stick my decks in folders named "cool decks", or "decks I want to make", and can't be fucked to give me a vote.

I'm also tired of arseholes who get their decks to number 1, then won't back off and give someone else a turn.

I really want to get Monothopters [Frontier] to number 1, coz it was the first deck I built that got first place, but I feel like I have to struggle for EVERY. SINGLE. VOTE.

Normally I wouldn't give two shits, but this deck is special.

Said on Laptop advice...


Hard to say for sure, but it will probably work fine.

It meets the 'recommended' OS and memory requirements. And here's a comparison of the processor in that laptop vs. a low-end 'Recommended' processor, which looks fine. Because the Celeron has a built-in video processor though, I'm not sure on that piece. The Celeron is designed for low power consumption so I would I never recommend it for serious gaming. But the graphic requirements on MTGO aren't exactly high-end, so it should be fine.

Either way, enjoy Oz and draw well!

Pummeler's awesome, and I like this build. Easy +1!

I've only one suggestion: Check out Josh Newell's Pummeler deck if you haven't already. He crushed a horde of Vehicles and Saheelis en route to 1st place at SCG Classic Dallas.

Draw well!

You bet!

Not sure where you are on brewing, but I think Argeaux's +1/+1 counter brew was the strongest archetype in KLD standard. Plus it got some extra tools in AER.

I personally LOVE the Silverfur Partisan Wolf Token archetype. But it's frankly way too unreliable to be competitive anywhere but on a kitchen table.

Also: Tears of Valakut.

Good luck (and good skill) with the brew!

Forgot to mention: If you haven't already checked it out, you may want to drop by the Solving Mirrorwing thread.

Said on My Friends Hate ......


I really love Wild Defiance, but I run it as three-of with 20 Lands and 4-6 Mana dorks, so as a four-of and with just 20 Lands it seems it would be a dead card too often. Of course, if it's working for you, never mind! :-)

Like Kushala said, Become Immense is awesome. You don't have a ton of discard though, so maybe just a two-of? For the other two, you could stick with Phytoburst, but Larger Than Life may be worth a look too. I'm not sure if your deck wants the Trample or extra buff more ...

Draw well!

March 20, 2017 12:52 p.m.

Said on Dis-Infect This...


Speaking of Lands, though I'm not sure your manabase would support, Cathedral of War might be worth a look. I play UG and love that Exalted trigger!

I've never tried Key to the City in Modern, but I've found it better than Hot Soup in EDH, so it may be worth a look as well.

Draw well!

March 20, 2017 12:34 p.m.,
Seems more evasion would be helpful somewhere in the 75, as Apostle's Blessing is really all you've got to get Creatures through. Rancor maybe? Or Inkmoth Nexus, as Darth_Savage mentioned.

Also, while I really like Wild Defiance, I suspect it's often a dead card in a deck with only 18 lands (even if you bring in the Birds of Paradise too). Of course, if it's working ok for you, never mind!

Finally, you might want to try Cathedral of War. It's kind of a super-budget Noble Hierarch and if you can fit it in, the Exalted trigger is awesome.

Draw well!

Said on Infection...


Four Abzan CoCo decks? Blurgh! Good luck (and good skill) with that!

I'm frankly too new to Modern to use Pithing Needle at max effectiveness, so for me it's an easy call. I really like Surgical Extraction though ... especially vs. Snapcaster Mage and really anyone with Graveyard recursion.

That said though, I hate Melira, Sylvok Outcast more than any other card in the deck, so I'd personally run an extra Dismember instead, just for her. :-)

March 19, 2017 10:57 p.m.

For whatever reason, it's *JA*.

(I have an Inkmoth NexusJA and it took me forever to figure it out)

March 19, 2017 4:33 p.m.

Said on Infection...


I know a ton of the top decks have 1x Spell Pierce mainboard and 2x in the side. But I personally prefer using the mainboard slot for hard protection (e.g., Spellskite or another Blossoming Defense) and the sideboard for hard counterspells (e.g., Dispel or even Ceremonious Rejection for some metas).

Either way, draw well!

March 19, 2017 3:02 p.m.

Have you already considered Abrupt Decay? Saw one in an MM17 pack and immediately thought of your list ...

Welcome to T/O!

The best deck advice takes into account folks' deck descriptions, previous comments, meta, budget, and play-style. You'll rarely be able to do all that of course, but it's something to strive for.

Or said another way: Don't be this guy :-)
