ducttapedeckbox Counterer of Spells

So Magic. I started playing with a few friends when the Mirrodin set came out. Until Shards of Alara I only played for fun (and didn't know many of the rules), but then I started playing at FNM tournaments. And, when Zendikar came out, I played mono-black Vampires for a few months. I stopped playing right before Worldwake. I got back into Magic around the Innistrad block, but started to seriously collect again in the Ravinica block. I am currently in college and don't get to play as much as I'd like to, but my playgroup still gets together over breaks and stuff to play.

Regarding my meta and deck building tendencies

I play control. I play Nekusar, the Mindrazer in EDH, Blue Moon (online) and UTron (paper) in Modern, and Counterburn in Standard. If a deck doesn't let you move the game at your own pace, it isn't for me.

My experiment is, obviously, with control. I woudn't consider myself an expert, but I know my way around a deck list. Feel free to ask for advice! I'm more than happy to check out lists given that they're linked in relevant places. Please do not comment on my decks with just a link to your own deck; either post that on my wall or leave me feedback as well.

I think I'm a pretty nice guy. I can be blunt, but I'm only doing so in an attempt to be honest and realistic. I'm not out to sabotage your deck, so don't be offended if I suggest a lot of changes. You're also more than welcome to disagree with me!

Current Projects

I'm mainly working on one EDH deck and one Modern deck, you can check them out below:

  1. Crudelis Imperium - A Cyclic Chaos -- EDH -- Grixis () cruel control with Nekusar, the Mindrazer at the helm.
  2. Control & Conquer: Mono-Blue Tron -- Modern -- Mono Tron. This is my cheap segue into the format.
  3. Of Control and Denial -- Modern -- Izzet () Blue Moon control.

are you still interested in the trade?

I stand corrected. My roommate had them.

The foil Remand is only about a dollar off of the Heath, so the Font puts it about $5 in your favor. How about the foil Remand and Font of Mythos for Windswept Heath and a Gitaxian Probe? That comes to about my $18 for your $16.75.

All of those are available for trade. However, this trade is strictly your Standard value for my non-Standard, and I would appreciate some form of a premium to make up for that (percentage devaluation of your end or something like that). Nothing huge, but maybe just remove one of those cards you listed in the $2-3 range? Is that reasonable?

The foil Remand is from MM2.

I'd also be interested in the two Swift Reckonings and Planar Outburst. What do you see from me?

I am looking to finish my Standard deck. I need:

I also need one more Dragonlord Ojutai, but I don't have the trade fodder for that (unless someone wants to give me one :D). I am only interested in trading.

Hey Epoch, I am having trouble removing some comments from my user page. The three comments from Goldghost012 are not disappearing after using the "Remove" button. I do not have any issues removing comments from other users.

When you have a moment, and if possible, could you remove these comments? They're numbers 17-19. If not, I'll pass this along to Go'.

What was the trade?

I have checked my binder, and I have everything you asked about. Couple things to note: Crumbling Necropolis is the original printing; Fabricate is the M10 printing, Guile is MM2, and I have almost every printing of Rakdos Carnarium. Would you like the DIS, C13, or MM2 printing?

November 28, 2015 8:52 p.m.

I'd go look over your recent downloads ;)

In all seriousness though, my two guesses are your internet connection or a virus. My neighbor was caught 'syphoning' our internet and the speed increased almost twofold once the company fixed it. Not saying this is the case for you though. I use Windows defender because its free and relatively good at cleaning your computer up. Try doing a speed test (speedtest.net is good) to check.

I can do that. I should still have all of those, but I'll double check when I get home Friday night.

I have a couple things you're looking for, but I won't be home for a week. Let me know if you see enough for a trade!

November 23, 2015 7:07 p.m.

Just have to make it until Friday, then I have a week long vacation for thanksgiving :) My semester is over when I get back, aside from finals of course.

Taking an art history course is definitely not the most enjoyable thing for an engineer (or at least me).

I'm kind of in the same boat as slovakattack. Academics has been defining my life this semester- when I tell someone that I'm home, I have to clarify if home means my apartment or the library. I am in my junior year of studying to be a mechanical / aerospace engineer, and will also graduate with a math minor. I'm looking at staying in Baltimore (at this university) for a fifth year to get my masters. They pay for half of it and itll only end up being five classes- not bad at all. I'm originally from Massachusetts.

I'll talk about non school stuff at some other point.

What's your preferred play style?

That's a reasonable price, I'm just not sure that I want to purchase cards right now. I'll think it over and get back to you.

Said on DevoidMage...


Would you do a Heath and the two Streams for Blightsteel plus another $2.50 or so to even it out?

November 14, 2015 1:50 p.m.

Is there anything in my binder that interests you for your Prairie Streams?

Said on H: dark jeskai ......


Put square brackets [ ] around the text you want to display, followed by the URL in parenthesis. No spaces except in the text you want to display.

I might be interested in some things. Anything of mine catch your eye? I also might be interested in buying an Ojutai. Are you willing to sell? I can't commit yet, though.
