I started attending tournaments around the time I joined TappedOut and have referred the site to almost as many people as I have suggested people here to read the article "Zero to Sixty". article here

"As I've spent more and more time working on games, though, I've realized that they're popular precisely because they address real human needs. They evoke real human emotions in ways other art forms address, but occasionally cannot touch. Flow and fiero are two of the most straightforward of those."

KongMing I'll admit my email is a pure spam folder mess, but if you have discord my username is Demarge#8933 I am also kind of a late night person when it comes to internet so my response time of the direct text chat might be about the same speed as an email interview.

Hello Demarge. I'm putting together a series of articles featuring different Decklords and Helpers on TappedOut. I'd like to have a brief email interview with you to share your perspective with the community.

If you're interested in being the topic of a Featured Helper article, drop me a line and we can start chatting. [email protected]

Said on Why is Merfolk ......


why not run both, add in more creatures with activated abilities and then run Training Grounds Heartstone effects? it is also just more to activate, for the chance to lower your average cmc, be on a body that opponents are far more likely going to let live to proliferate. In fact outside of drake being your only infect creature the skydiver just fits the deck better, early game it is very doubtful you want to use the ability over casting a spell, and for the turn it comes down the total cost to activate it is 7 instead of 8 mana and you would more likely proliferate a minimum of a +1/+1 counter.

Said on Standard Bannings...


*obvious zombie token wearing a Hero of Precinct One costume walks in.

they will ban these cards-

Ashiok, Dream Render makes Evolving Wilds unplayable in standard.

Unmoored Ego most decks have a playset of cards that are important to their strategy and are just fragile without it.

Torbran, Thane of Red Fell just makes mono red way to fast for any sort of slower deck to survive.

Said on Esper control...


with Stoneforge Mystic unbanned and Mystic Sanctuary being printed the power of both have kinda edged esper control away as both do the grind the game out plan stronger, sfm being a powerful early threat and sanctuary allowing a lockout with Cryptic Command which requires the deck to be heavier blue.

Said on Wrenn and Six...


If you're really not going to see mtg reliably for awhile and you were not building a jund deck for modern/legacy anyway sell it. Even if it's 120 when you get back into the game you likely would have been better off with the money now anyway. mtg outside of the reserve list is very volatile, it is far more likely wotc does something that will lower the card's price with a ban or reprint than the card become so dominate it jumps past modern's $100 laughter curve on card price (for very long at least).

Said on Mox Emerald in ......


For any of these high end card purchases you want to communicate with the seller as much as you can, it is extremely likely there are way more nearly perfect rip offs than there are real ones being sold atm. So definitely take it slow.

Said on where can't I ......


If I remember right some of the gold bordered cards had square edges and in many cases with sleeves a sharpied signed card is often alright.

Said on Help with if ......


nooo it does not work, jhoira's trigger looks for when you cast the spell not when it enters Mj3913 is entirely wrong. by the time the artifact entered the battlefield her ability would no longer care about it.

October 17, 2019 10:49 p.m.

you are already running a splash of white, why not shore up some of your weaknesses of creature based threats that can get under your counters and run the miracle Terminus . a single Entreat the Angels would also function pretty well as a finisher spell as even with just one angel you will be able to kill the opponent pretty quickly with a few extra turns.

Hmm while brain is stuck thinking on the legacy miracles (though modern miracles just recently did a thing) Counterbalance seems kinda funny to try out, I almost wanna see cracking a fetch land to get a sanctuary to put the right cmc spell on top.

Said on Curses **Primer**...


Hynx I direct you to the ruling here. The wording on Open the Vaults essentially is worded so it isn't the caster of the spell getting everything, you still control the curses, but you still can choose where to put them, oddly enough this method also gets around players who are hexproof or have shroud.

Said on New Chain Veil ......


yeah this is more parts than what any sort of game should allow happen in commander you would need also some way to have marsil etb trigger 3+ times, needs haste or to live a turn round, and a planeswalker to abuse. All without any of these pieces being effects that tutor/draw/self mill in any way. You could build this combo, but you would need spectators and not opponents to pull it off.

But to make this combo quite a bit more consistent why not replace veil and planeswalkers with Walking Ballista , less cards to combine and on it's own can be useful.

Said on Does fae of ......


yeah I made it to a 9 win streak with a golos bant list with a wish package, felt like cheating almost.

For the moment you can simulate it by just putting the normal tag on each possible commander and just explain in deck description.

October 7, 2019 8:29 a.m.

it was forced on so the site could actually get data on their meter, at worst it's a minor annoyance to see it for your deck, but you can ignore it (actually the feedback here is probably what they were looking for when they forced it on).

October 6, 2019 4:14 a.m.

It was forced on awhile ago so they could gather data and while it isn't a "at 100% competitive you literally can't lose a game" accurate, or even "at 100% competitive this is definitely something you should attend a gp with" outside of trying to cheese it on purpose it does kind of put you closer to the ballpark of what to expect. So it does it's job about as well as one can expect, the next level of it would be what, compare the decklist to mtggoldfish's meta pages and see how closely it compares to a deck that has put up results in that format?

Now I do agree some kind of guide image to explain a deck page could be helpful, but like how the end of almost every page with a comment box on the site having a comment tutorial button it's unlikely people will look at it.

It's the 1st day of their official release and the printing more part is something they started up after they noticed the preorder hype, more are coming, they will become cheaper.
