merrowMania MTG Encyclopedia

Hello all,

I am merrowMania, aka MerfolkMan. I began my Magic-al journey with a friend's mono-blue merfolk deck, the predecessor/'inspiration' for Them Fishies Will Kill You.

I like to think of myself as a serious Magic player, which, for the most part, is true. That's the Spike in me. I enjoy proving myself through how well I play (regardless of whether I win).

I am also a DCI-certified Rules Adviser. (Edit: the Rules Adviser program was discontinued)

I am also a Melvin, someone who appreciates how all the pieces of Magic fit together to make this great game what it is, both at a card level (like with Primal Command and Firemaw Kavu) and a macroscopic level (like with the rules for Layering). I am the person who reads the competitive rules in his spare time, thereby allowing him to delve as deep into the game as his mind desires.

But Magic is a game to be played with others, particularly friends. I sometimes find myself at odds with them when: I start to make a deck too controlling, I take too long trying to maximize my turns/actions, or I point out how a rule is being ignored or 'correct gameplay' is not enforced. These are some of the things I need to work on and hope to overcome.

If my comments or responses reflect what I have said, I apologize in advance.

You can find me on PucaTrade under the name Merrow (https://pucatrade.com/profiles/show/49547) or browsing the Rules Q&A; here on TappedOut.
(Edit: I am now more likely browsing the cEDH list as it is more discussion-based than answer-based.)

Best T/O Rank: 15 <--This is me being a tad too competitive :P

The following are my Magic Personality Results, in order of accuracy (all still represent me, but some are expressed more than others):

I am Blue/Green
I am Blue/Green

I am both rational and instinctive. I value self-knowledge and understanding of the world; my ultimate goal is self-improvement and improvement of the world around me. At best, I am focused and methodical; at worst, I am obsessive and amoral.
I am Red/Blue
I am Red/Blue
I are both rational and emotional. I value creation and discovery, and feel strongly about what I create. At best, I'm innovative and intuitive. At worst, I'm scattered and unpredictable.
I am Black/Green
I am Black/Green
I am both selfish and instinctive. I value growth and community, as long as they favor my own objectives; I enjoy nature, and I particularly enjoy watching parts of nature die. At best, I am resilient and tenacious; at worst, I'm uncontrollable and destructive.

I do not really know where this came from but it is true about me nonetheless:

Said on End of Turn ......

#1

Decree of Pain's effect ends at end of turn (or rather during the cleanup step of the end phase) while Simulacrum returns at the beginning of the next end step (of the end phase). Therefore, Solemn will always return before Simic Manipulator returns to normal and will always evolve it.
