skoobysnackz Deckling

Hey there I'm skoobysnackz. I've been playing magic since the end of 2015. I started out playing only modern and lots of control decks, which is still my favorite strategy. However, I now also play much more casual, combo oriented decks in both modern and commander/EDH. My favorite creatures are Hypnotoad, and Puff the Magic Dragon. Here are links to my modern decks that are centered around them: All Glory to the Hypnotoad, and Puff the Magic Dragon. My favorite color combos are Esper (), Sultai (), and Grixis (), with Temur () close behind. My favorite commander at the moment is Taigam, Sidisi's Hand because of his lock combo with Maralen of the Mornsong and Mindlock Orb here is my take on the deck: Taigam and Maralen's Sinister Song. If you like any of my decks don't hesitate to let me know, especially if you have suggestions. I'd like to mention, though, that there are a few cards I will almost always exclude from my decks: Emrakul, the Aeons Torn, Tarmogoyf, Liliana of the Veil, Mana Drain, Force of Will, Necropotence, and Ad Nauseam. I feel that these cards are too unbalanced and take the fun out of the games they appear in, but I will not hold it against anyone else for playing them. Finally, I think it is important to say that if you like any deck (not just mine) enough to put it into a folder, or to comment something like "nice deck", just give the deck an upvote. It costs you nothing and shows the deck is appreciated.

Pretty much what's in the title. I have a promo Crucible of Worlds and a foil Omniscience that I'm looking to trade for non-foil copies plus a Karn, Scion of Urza. I'm willing to negotiate for cards other than Omniscience and Crucible of Worlds, but I definitely want to get my hands on a Karn, Scion of Urza.

Thanks for the advice multimedia! I think I'll sell Crucible of Worlds and Omniscience and hold onto the rest for now. I'm hesitating to sell Tezzeret, Artifice Master because of how well he played at the pre-release. I'm thinking he may have a spot in my Pirate/Artifact tokens deck Kaizoku Ou Ni Ore Wa Naru.

Best Pre-release I've been to by far. I got a promo Crucible of Worlds! I also opened Tezzeret, Artifice Master, Death Baron, Sigiled Sword of Valeron, and Demon of Catastrophes in the pre-release kit, then I got Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire, Liliana, Untouched By Death, and Omniscience in prize packs.

Hello TappedOut! It's pre-release season, and I wish everyone as much luck as I had. I went to the pre-release yesterday, and got extremely lucky with some pulls. My promo was Crucible of Worlds, I pulled a Tezzeret, Artifice Master in my first pack, and then Death Baron in my second pack. The rest of the packs had nothing special money-wise, I got Lena, Selfless Champion, Goblin Trashmaster, Sigiled Sword of Valeron and Demon of Catastrophes. After going 3-1 with a UB control deck with zombies/skeletons and tokens, I got four prize packs from which I got Liliana, Untouched By Death, Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire, Omniscience and Dark-Dweller Oracle, and Windreader Sphinx.

My question is, which of these cards do you think will creep up in price, and which ones should I sell now? I'm hoping Death Baron creeps up in price after dropping to about $4-5. I'm thinking the planeswalkers, especially Liliana will drop a bit, but I figured I'd ask here before doing anything. Tezzeret, Artifice Master was by far the best card in my deck, and I think it will see standard play for sure. It still felt a bit slow for modern, so I don't know how that will affect his price.

I'm a big fan of this! looks like a lot of fun. Would Taigam, Sidisi's Hand fit in here? He digs three cards deep every turn and puts your auras directly into the graveyard. Search for Azcanta  Flip seems to me like it could fit a similar role too.

Well I feel stupid, totally forgot Mikaeus, the Unhallowed was a lord lol. I'm not at all experienced in building competitive edh, so thanks for clearing all that up!

I think you may have to chose a different image. I use a lot of images in my decks as well and sometimes the images are copyrighted or something and I get the same issue with the weird failed image symbol at the top left, but I don't think its anything wrong with the code.

I'm a little confused at the Karmic Guide and Viscera Seer hulk package. Can you explain why you don't directly fetch Walking Ballista and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed? It doesn't seem to me like either Karmic Guide or Viscera Seer has any effect on the combo, unlike the Grand Abolisher, Spellseeker, and Viscera Seer package which makes the combo almost untouchable. I don't think you need to sac Walking Ballista with Viscera Seer because it comes in with X=0 then dies immediately because it has no toughness, and that will trigger Mikaeus, the Unhallowed by itself. I don't really play competitive magic so I might be missing some weird ruling, but it seems to me like fewer moving parts to the combo would make it stronger and more resilient because you can save the extra slots for protection (I'm taliking about Karmic Guide here). I'm also not sure how your Blind Obedience thing works. To my knowledge, you can only exploit when you cast a spell and you can only exploit once per spell, so how do you plan on storming off with that and wouldn't Exsanguinate, Debt to the Deathless, or Torment of Hailfire just be easier, quicker, and less confusing with infinite mana? Btw, I just want to add that I'm not trying to be critical of your deck, I'm just working on a similar list and was confused by some of the choices.

I definitely second Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire, seems like a lot of fun with extra combat steps and tokens.

Have you considered Foe-Razer Regent? Its a little expensive, but seems worth it when you have Eldrazi Monument. Golden Guardian  Flip could also be a really fun card with Grothama. Anyways, I think Grothama is one of the most interesting creatures to work around since The Gitrog Monster, there's just so much potential, and the risk of giving your opponent cards just makes it all the more fun. Glad to see someone else giving the wurm some love.

Said on Play exiled lands?...

#13

Oblivion Sower lets you play opponent's exiled lands. Other than that, I'm not aware of anything other than red's "exile the top card of your library, you may play it this turn" type effects.
