wallisface on Less clutter?

The revamp is better but not by any notable margin - both decks have too much inconsistency to pick up on the differences from game-to-game.

I think you need to work towards getting playsets of your cards. The following list below just uses more copies of what you’re already running, and will play significantly stronger than what you’ve got now:

Tyrant-Thanatos on Cheapest way to buy Mountains …

I doubt you would have anyone counterfeiting them.

It takes like $1 to make a half-decent proxy that would pass a cursory inspection. That's WAY more than a basic land is worth. If you do find a proxied Mountain , it's honestly probably worth more than a legitimate one.

I seem to recall WotC actually selling land packs themselves, but that was a while back and I don't think they do it anymore. LGS is the way to go for sure.

Hardhitta7 on Want to trade for Kamigawa …

1 week ago

Hi, I just built a r/w Samurai deck and I want to trade for some basics from Kamigawa for it. Everything in my binder is up for trade for them except the Primal Amulet  Flip and Monastery Mentor .

I need up to 15x of each of:

Mountain (Champions of Kamigawa #299)

Plains (Champions of Kamigawa #287)

DanMcSharp on Fractals

It's refreshing to see new players coming up with their own deck ideas instead of just copying the top meta decks. Welcome to the game btw!

I haven't seen many people play dedicated "fractal" decks so far, but something that I've seen people make work was using Body of Research to make a huge body and then win with Fling or Kazuul's Fury  Flip. It seems pretty close to the way you try to play the deck anyway seeing how you like to have Solve the Equation in your opening hands. A combo deck like that wouldn't really need as many tribal interaction and focus mostly on getting the right cards out asap while just staying alive, so cards that give better card selections Omen of the Sea , bounce spells Into the Roil and counterspells Saw It Coming could be more helpful.

If you prefer to play the tribal aspect where you try to win with creatures and superior board state, you shouldn't really need to rush to a specific card like you do when using Solve the Equation . Instead you should try to get the most out of you creatures. The Great Henge seems like a great fit in this case since you will have large bodies for the discount, and your creatures will get more +1/+1 counters for your existing synergies. I'm not sure what Confounding Conundrum is there for, it's usually a side-board card, or a card built around things like Field of Ruin to trigger it or in Yorion, Sky Nomad to bounce it, but another 2 drop you could consider would be Guardian Gladewalker since it gives a +1/+1 counter and it also counts as a fractal for Biomathematician .

I find that The Ozolith is a very nice fit for the deck, but drawing multiple is hardly ever going to help you, so you could easily cut 1 and only play 3. Also, going up to 23(or more) lands certainly wouldn't hurt. You could make it a Mountain if you want to go the combo route to supplement your Ketria Triome for the red splash so that any Fabled Passage can be a red source.

Btw, you seem to think that The Ozolith would cover you if Body of Research gets "countered", but if that happens the creature won't ever exist, so there will be no counters for The Ozolith to pick-up. If it resolves and then the creature gets destroy or remove from play by any means, then yes it would work.

Hopefully these suggestions are useful,

Good luck!

Mcat1999 on How does Zedruu interact with …

2 weeks ago

I have Zedruu the Greathearted in play and I decide to give my opponent my Indestructibility aura which is currently enchanting my Mountain , for ease of conversation.

Indestructibility never actually leaves the battlefield. As far as I am aware, it does not become removed from my Mountain , either. Merely the control of it changes.

So is my Mountain still enchanted by Indestructibility when I give control of it up to someone else?

  • NOTE: I am not asking about equipment because, once control is exchanged, my opponent can merely attach it to something else they control at sorcery speed. There are ways to change the attachment of auras, but they are extremely rare and usually not run, therefore not making this much of an issue to be concerned with.

Balaam__ on The Carnage Patch Kids

Note: I’m aware that Cragcrown Pathway  Flip is mentioned in the description but is not part of the card list. For some reason, it deletes half the description if I try to edit the deck. Since I don’t feel like rewriting the whole thing all over again, just know that I dropped the Mountain count to 2 copies and added 4x Cragcrown Pathway  Flip.
