Niko9 on Favorite EDH Cards

1 month ago

Gleeock You know, being doomed by Wand of Wonder sounds like a really fun way to lose a match, so still a good time : )

Honestly, I'm not really sure how "commits a crime" works yet, but good to know that it might be something fun to explore. I was trying to get back into the game a bit and then the Princess Bride cards kind of broke my brain, so not really sure if I will check out the new sets right now. It's kind of weird that they don't have reminder text for these effects. I mean, I guess I should know what these effects do, but I really kinda don't.

And yep FormOverFunction the original Terror was such a creepy card, but in the best way. Part of me misses those legitimately scary cards, but then part of me thinks it went maybe a little too far with something like Ad Nauseam, so I don't know, but I love the original terror!

FormOverFunction on Favorite EDH Cards

Niko9 - Terror was my first removal and probably still my favorite. The original art was AMAZING and has the added flavor of “can’t terror-someone-to-death if they’re a robot or zombie/demon/etc”. Super great. Yay removal!

bhst5019 on Stopping combo of Ratadrabik of …

5 months ago

So, assuming it is his turn. He triggers Boromir, then Ratadrabik in stacks. Priority is passed (no response in this case). The token is then made. Then priority is passed (comes to me). I respond by casting Terror on the token. Priority is passed. Token is destroyed if no there are no other responses, then the ring bearer is made on a different creature. Am I understanding this correctly?

FormOverFunction on Players vs. Planeswalkers

10 months ago

Would it be good, or maybe bad, if the cards (or rules?) were changed to have “target player” include planeswalkers? Or maybe this has already happened... sort of? An example of what I’m talking about would be to have Earthquake hit planeswalkers because they’re included under “players.” They’re not creatures,so you can’t Terror them, but you can Lightning Bolt them with an “any target” spell. Changing earthquake would then make Magmaquake less useful, but I feel like fixing this blind spot might make PWs more manageable. Please help me understand PWs better and work through the logic of whether a change like that might be bad. Thanks all!

FormOverFunction on What was the last iconic …

10 months ago

I think there’s also a personal “these are the first few cards I’ve seen that imprinted the game in my mind” iconic to be considered. Cards like Stasis and Twiddle seem iconic to me, both because their mechanics were original and their art is very cryptic and original, but also because they were what I saw first. When you grew up with straightforward art like what was drawn on a He-Man package, something like the original Terror was WILD. I feel like the newer MtG products are better polished, which has some upsides... but lacks that iconic Will-o'-the-Wisp feel. (if I had more skill/time I would link the original arts rather than whatever is about to come up with them - sorry all)

Hi DreadKhan, thank you so much for your insights. This deck is emulating my physical deck. I've been playing with some friends and making some adjustments.

Some points I noticed while playing:

When I do those changes, I will update this deck.

Thank you, Made_Compleat.

For a lot of things, but amongst them, giving Archelos some love.

May I break this thread by ranting a little bit about Power Creep?

Headline: It Isn't a Bad Thing.

I've been playing since I was 13 years old, in 1994. You know what was the first thing that pissed me off about the game? When Dark Banishing was released in Ice Age, in 1995. You know why? Because, at that point, not a whole lot of shit had been printed that made any of my decks better.

And there was Dark Banishing. A shell of its predecessor, Terror. A card that basically did the exact same thing, but cost one more. Yeah, it killed artifact creatures, but what the hell good did that do anybody back then. And nothing else added to it that made it even close to as good. And, in my mind, I thought, "is anything ever going to make my decks better?" Or are they just going to keep making worse versions of existing cards?

I quit playing the game. Stopped buying packs. Kept my cards, because I never thought they'd be worth anything. Occasionally I would find someone who played, would bring out my old what then began to be called "Legacy" decks, and inevitably trounced them. And, do you know what made me want to start buying cards again? At some point, I started to lose games.

Ok, so I first started buying cards again for the Urza block, because of the fast green creatures with Echo, and because I thought Squirrels were cool. Then, I bought a lot of Mirrodin years later, because I liked both the Affinity mechanic and Equipment subtype therein. I was utterly disappointed with 5th Dawn, but there I was. And I bought a lot of Kamigawa block after that, solely for the flavor. But I quit again after that, because I still owned those decks from long before that were my best, and nothing had made them any better.

I stopped buying cards for many years after that, and then Lorwyn was released in 2007, and I started losing games. Power Creep had set in.

I honestly don't know what it was. Nobody I played with used planeswalkers, so their introduction couldn't have been it. Maybe I had just missed too much in all those years, and new archetypes had emerged. Whatever it was, suddenly my Legacy decks, that hadn't changed much in more than a decade, weren't competing. I had to start buying cards, lest my stance that "new cards will never compete with the old ones" was proven obsolete.

And the hits kept hitting, for years thereafter. I was elated. FINALLY! The cards that were being printed could create decks that could compete with decks that had existed more than a decade ago. And no, I'm not talking about Power 9 decks, but even they could be improved by newly printed cards! There was something better out there, possible and new, to give me a reason to want to continue playing the game!

And by "playing the game," I mean continuing to give my money to WotC. And/or my LGS, TCGplayer, or whomever (way back then, there was a website called Blacborder.com, where I bought all of my singles, but I don't think they exist anymore). Finally, WotC was printing cards that competed with existing cards! Finally, there was a reason to expand my collection! Finally, WotC wasn't just trying to push Standard format for the sake of getting new players to feel like they could keep up, and instead was making old players - like me - feel excited about buying packs again!

And then there was commander. Some of you might not know or remember, but EDH stands for "Elder Dragon Highlander." "Elder Dragon," because in the beginning your commander had to be one, and "Highlander" because that was already the existing name for singleton format ("There can be only one!"). True story: 100 card singleton format existed in 1996. It was called "Highlander" back then. There was no commander. There was no command zone. Just a 100 card singleton deck that forced you to use all those less powerful reprints like Dark Banishing, because the deck was 100 cards and you could only have one Terror. And sometimes, in my experience, your starting life total was still just 20. The wild fuckin west, brah.

And with Commander came a revitalization of a lot of previously overlooked cards. For instance, those 8 copies of Rhystic Study that I had pulled from packs many years prior were suddenly worth a shit. Hard to believe now, but they hadn't been before. Just bulk rares. So at that point, not only were there more and better cards being released frequently, but my old cards that even I had dismissed were becoming relevant. It was like Christmas times 1000!!

So please, don't complain about new cards being too powerful. You don't have any idea what it was like when all that bullshit was being printed in the late 90's. Be grateful that WotC keeps you on your toes. It's a lot more of a beneficial strategy to us players than the creation of the Standard format, where they basically said "we're not ever going to improve on existing cards, so you aren't allowed to use them anymore. Here's a load of less powerful garbage. Please keep buying cards." It keeps us interested in what's being released. It keeps us from taking years-long hiatuses, like I did many times in the past. It keeps new releases relevant, for more than just flavor or shiny new mechanics.

Now we have to grow our collections in order to compete. We have to buy those new cards to keep up. We can't just keep playing that graveyard deck that we built in 1994 and expect to win against these kids that just started playing. We have to adapt, and that keeps the game interesting. Even if it's only changing a card or two in the deck every year. And yeah, if a card comes along every now and then like Elesh Norn, Mother of Machines, that completely wrecks all of the decks that you spent so much time and money building, so be it! That just means that the game is improving, diversifying. It means that there's an avenue for what you already own to get better.

It is a good thing. Get over it.

TeyoSelflessProtector on Liesa commander (first build ever)

Just a few suggestions on the utility pieces: Sisay's Ring is the same thing as Ur-Golem's Eye, but Thran Dynamo is better. Expel is better than Excoriate. Unless you really care about preventing regeneration, Doom Blade is better than Terror, though I personally prefer Poison the Cup.
