He tried to politic
They said no your a dick
With a deck full of bull
And a turn timer thats full
Every time they would cast a card
He would counter it hard
All laughter with a grin
Untill he realised he didn't have a win
Based on the meter of their poem - or lack thereof - I am not sure the OP knows what “tempo” is!

there is no rythm because it came out of a game, each verse came from a different person as we were stack rhyming. House rule were you have to say a rhyme everytime you put a spell on the stack. think killer bee (eight tails) battles from naruto. its alot of fun.. anyways this one made us laugh so hard i wanted to share it. In the moment i completely forgot about the douchebags on this site and why i stopped using these forums.

Ramble I play my fair share of blue, and no offense taken! I like your house rule, it sounds fun. And we all know that player that tries to politic despite doing their best to ruin everyone's fun.

Someone didn't know what to post next,
So he told us a joke out of context,
Understand it we must,
Or "Douchebags!" He cussed,
And then we just sat here, perplexed.
May 30, 2021 8:43 p.m.
Yup, im just calling people douchbags becouse they didn't understand.
Kk since im just the idiot that doesn't know what tempo is and your all are the magic pros. Then i propose a challenge
Name any combo legal in commander to lock me out of a game that i can't get around in gruul.
Hard lock me and shut me up once and for all

Maybe if you are so emotionally raw that people teasing is getting you this legitimately upset the internet isn't a good place to be. I know of many hard locks, but I'm not naming any because I am not going to attempt to "shut you up once and for all". I am however going to suggest that you refrain from associating with us assholes until you are in the frame of mind to take what you dish out.
May 30, 2021 9:53 p.m.
I'm intrigued by the challenge Ramble so I'll bite.
May 30, 2021 10:05 p.m.
Nah, bro. It isn't trash talk. I value everyone and don't want to chase anyone off. It is literally the opposite of trash talk, it is talk encouraging you to be in a good place mentally. No one in this thread seems like they are trying to be a douche. You just seem a little raw and I am trying to encourage you to not be in a place where you are going to take stuff to heart.

Ramble Perhaps I read wrong, is the combo supposed to be in Gruul or are you using Gruul in this hypothetical situation?

Ramble nice, man lands have closed out countless games for me. But they won't get you out of the Slaver Lock.
May 30, 2021 10:28 p.m.
May 30, 2021 10:44 p.m.
Let's waddle that down actually. Slaver lock with Grand Abolisher

DarkMagician that was a good challenge
Mental magic is a blast, i will admit me having all the awnsers it requires to unlock that are about the same odds of me letting that lock assemble in the first place lol
May 30, 2021 11:48 p.m.
If no one else wants to play this way we could also reverse the challenge, ill make gruul legal locks and ya all can break them using anything but red and green
Ill start with Titania's Song & Mycosynth Lattice

I'd like to mention that 's use of the word "tempo" was meant in a poetic sense, not a MtG sense. Meaning, the way stressed and relaxed syllables follow each other to create rhythm in a sentence. Which was completely irregular in the original post. It was a clever pun that nobody needs to be upset about, especially not after you mentioned how the verse came to be, RambIe. After the explanation of the stack rhyming, I thought it was all great fun, but that the readers of this forum needed that explanation. Then you called us douchebags in the very next sentence, because you took a pun personal. Or you didn't understand it.
Can I see the list I'm trying to hard lock? I'm pretty sure there's many obscure answers to rare threats if you dig deep enough and play mind magic. You can't fit them all in a 100 card deck though.
I could, say, cast Silence , then Drannith Magistrate , equip with Lightning Greaves , cast Possibility Storm and cast an enchantment to spin into Overwhelming Splendor , but then you say you had a Cindervines in play, so now I have to correct that with Opalescence and Linvala, Keeper of Silence and an Enchanted Evening , just to be sure. So what did I not think of, and is it actually a card someone would play in commander?

Hmm, but lattice turns all cards in your hand colorless, so Force of Vigor won't be cast for free, so Elvish Spirit Guide + Nature's Claim on either remaining lock piece, so you can at least start playing lands again.

You know what? I'm going to bust this out. It's been too long since it's seen the light of day.
Not mono-blue, but I'm pretty sure it's the hardest lock possible.

And in my desire to show off, I overlooked that Iona, Shield of Emeria isn't EDH-legal. The rest of it still holds.

There's still an Iona-shaped hole in my lock for Commander, though. But that's a good catch!
May 31, 2021 1:20 a.m.
legendofa lol, i love that you used this opportunity for a shameless plug. Im upvoting both your comment and your deck
What you have listed reminds me of one of my buds "commander teeg" stax deck at the time iona was still legal
Some of the typical keys i used to unlock it were Bane of Bala Ged , Spellbinder , Scroll of Fate , Duplicant . There are more but i dont wana give away all my secrets :)
@plakjekaas we have a miss understanding, if you want to lock me i can only use cards legal to play in a gruul deck to unlock
If you want to break my lock you can use everthing except red and green
Hope that clears that up.

I did warn to chime in to affirm plakjekaas’ post - it was a pun and no offence was meant. I figured that would be fairly obvious from the fact that it was a pun and had a friendly little explanation point at the end, but I suppose there’s no accounting for someone completely missing the joke.
Though, I cannot help but point out the somewhat untoward nature of your subsequent response. If you are going to make posts poking fun of entire sections m of the community - a post I am giving the benefit of the doubt and assuming was made jocularly, rather than in mean spirits - you should be prepared to receive jest in-kind. There really was no need to escalate friendly jostling to active insulting and a need to affirm skills that were never questioned.
Anyway, I am sorry you missed the joke and took offence instead. No hard feelings.

@plakjekaas "I could, say, cast Silence , then Drannith Magistrate , equip with Lightning Greaves , cast Possibility Storm and cast an enchantment to spin into Overwhelming Splendor , but then you say you had a Cindervines in play, so now I have to correct that with Opalescence and Linvala, Keeper of Silence and an Enchanted Evening , just to be sure.

after having Possibility Storm hit the board everthing else is chance
So in response to your first p-storm trigger Gorilla Shaman - boots, Borborygmos Enraged - drann, I would leave p-storm on the board becouse i like that card, as for the rest i would wait till my turn and simian guide cast any instant spell. Becouse the odds of me getting a instant spell to break those enchantments in a gruul deck are better then you p - storming into that lock

If I get that setup, you’re done playing. Unless there’s a creature you can figure out how to cast for 0 mana in gruul with an etb that destroys artifacts/enchantments. Although I could just add a Darksteel Forge before casting March of the Machines and force you to exile now.

Land for turn
Allosaurus Shepherd hold priority
Elvish Spirit Guide into Mystic Repeal
I should have said realistic lock
Cuz these 7-8 card 30+ mana locks would never get assembled in a real game with out being awnsered
But i didnt put limits so ill save everyone the trouble and beat my self
Every permanent magic ever printed on the battlefield

A commander deck is only 100 cards, there's no way it's commander legal to have every permanent ever on the battlefield xD
