Commander is the one true format.

All other formats are false formats and degenerate; Those in opposition will be destroyed by the crushing weight of our double hard-sleeved, all foil, full-art Unstable land 100 card decks in bullet proof metal fire-safe cases."

I don't actually believe that, but it is just fun to prod at people.

Hey, I noticed your recent question in the forums. We have a Rules Q&A forum that can help you get quick answers to questions like that. I moved your previous thread for you, but you can post directly in the Q&A forum next time you have a question about the game's rules or card interactions!

Though... making a new format called "melee" would just give SiebenLore one more thing to mispronounce.

I would want Mario for my commander in a card-mashing fest like "MTG Melee".

Or maybe Link.

Or maybe Charmander.

He would be my "Char-Commander".

yeah, it pretty much does.

My playgroup doesn't allow infinite mana as a wincon... you have to do something with it. This deck kinda goes above and beyond that, i believe.

Paradox Engine Untaps every non-land permanent every time a spell is played.

So you get a bunch of your rocks out, along with P-engine, and tap them all for mana, even when you cast a 0cmc spell. that will trigger P-engine, and you can do it again and again.

It may not be "infinite" as it depends on how many cards you can play are in your hand and such... but it is damn well close.

The way this deck works, you should never be lacking in cards to play. even if you were going to draw out your deck, you have Laboratory Maniac, and that pretty much wins you the game right there.

And with cards like Retract and Rebuild, getting all that landfill back into your hands just to throw it all down again.

With all that floating mana, and provided you throw down P-engine first, if you had 30 artifacts in your hand, with most being rocks... well... it generates insane amounts of the stuff.

If you realllllly wanted truly infinite mana, you put the old Deadeye Navigator + Palinchron combo in there... or Cloud of Faeries + Deadeye Navigator .

Those two combos would untap lands, which is a plus, but not terribly relevant. You can get this deck going with only two blue or red lands out. Needing to untap the lands is sorta pointless after you have some good rocks out.

Yeah, it would be red mostly.


Precisely what I was thinking. Thank you!

Say you have a ledgendary creature out, and infinite mana of any color. Don't worry about how you achieve that infinite mana; it isn't important.

You cast Karn's Temporal Sundering. Then, you flash in Dualcaster Mage, targeting KTS, which then targets you.

Can you then target DC with KTS's ETB, bouncing DC back to your hand, which allows you to then flash it in again, copying the copy of KTS, triggering another ETB, allowing you to bounce DC to hand... ad infinitum.

I have seen a similar question asked on Salvation. Though that question was asked about the new legendary Naru Meha, Master Wizard, and no source for infinite mana.

Argy I am sure you are a nice person, but this request is not possible to be fulfilled.

As a Russian trollbot created by the satanic Illuminati CERN matrix, i am unable to assemble, process, and release larvae for the pitiful hu-mans.

Someday you will find your flesh-lump breeding mate and assemble and process hu-man larvae with you. It just... will not be me.

so what that you can't get her by "crackin packs"... doing that is a faster way to waste money than actualy spending the 40 bucks that it costs to buy the Atraxa, and you have to throw away all the garbage cards that you get by "crackin packs"/buying a precon.

Having expectations of getting something worthwhile in a pack is really foolish.

And i have long thought that the concept of "limited availability" is lost to many people MTG. you cannot all have the best cards. they are not door prizes or passing grades given out to dumb kids during the Bush administration.

Not that Atraxa is one of the best cards, but i made my point.

yah sure reprint the card once in a while. just don't overdo it, and that's all i care about with this issue. 18 months is too soon, and i am not excusing other cards from this opinion either. So just because other cards have been reprinted in shorter spans of time, doesn't mean that my irritation is irrelivant or misplaced. it is silly of WoTC to do that kind of stuff.

MagicalHacker I haven't thought about it. Someone mentioned the Teferi deck, and that one does seem like a good choice, especially since the character is back in the limelight.

You're right. i was wrong to have an opinion that goes against the collective.

griffstick you are lucky. That card is a favorite in my area.

I don't know if anyone here is pissed off about Atraxa being reprinted, but i certainly am.

Oh, it's not because they will devalue the original card monetarily. That might happen. keyword: "might", as in "doesn't always occur".

And it isn't that the card is going to get popular again... and you're going to see it everywhere, and every shitty EDH player will be running it. That already happens, so... have at it, Hoss. go to town with a garbage Atraxa deck that doesn't work.

my issue is "don't you think it is too soon, WoTC"?

I know that they are a company and companies make money by manufacturing and selling a product of some sort. But good GAWD. do we have to go through this again?

Come on, WoTC... have some respect for yourselves; it ain't 1993 anymore.

Magical cards curl moments after they are born. Foils, especially FtV foils,are visited by the curl fairy after they were opened. If your card wasn't granted genderneutralpronoun's curl fairy yet, then it probably never will, and must live life being made fun of by all the magical cards with a curl fairy.

Maybe one day, your card will get a curl fairy, and defeat the evil Gannon, and tap the 0cmc Triforce for 3 mana of any color.

Painlands are okay. i Don't see why ppl have a big issue with them. They are not a primary source for colored mana; always just a backup.

As for the filter lands, they will be reprinted when WoTC finds a way to fit them in a set. They are not good, and are really niche; i doubt they would be cared about in a standard set unless someone found a way to exploit them... which is always possible.

Reprinting shocks is of greater import to the game at this point.

Have they curled? if so, you have got yourself a genuine From the Vault card.
