I think I got into Magic during Return to Ravnica, though I really only got serious about this money-sucking hobby just recently.

I'm a filthy budget player who likes to keep things underneath 50 bucks if possible, though Im kinda bad at doing that.

Apparently I have nothing better to do this summer than to theory craft a bunch of decks. Does that count as having an obsession?

Oh yo Rhadamanthus I didn't notice the mark as answer prompt before. My bad. I'll make sure to keep that in mind in the future. Thanks!

Hey paintman37. Thanks for the feedback!

Oh yeah the Azorius variant definitely has a lot of neat synergies, especially with the white magecraft dudes.

I'd say that Stormchaser Drake definitely fits better in the Izzet variant since drawing two cards off Ancestral Anger is too sweet to pass up. Plus it's easier to give him haste via Kick in the Door to make sure he doesn't just sit there to get his teeth kicked on your opponent's turn.

Voltaic Visionary  Flip might be worth looking into, but I'm a little hesitant about Geistflame Reservoir since the mana sinks seem better fit for a control deck rather than an aggro deck.

Eh, I'd say that Child of the Pack seems to be going for some extreme contrast between a frail child and an extremely buff werewolf. Like, you would see this little red ridinghood-lookin shit and think, "Heh, she's just a kid, what can she possibly do?" only to shit your pants upon realizing what her werewolf form looks like.

Plus that werewolf we got in AFR has a feminine figure, so female werewolves aren't completely out of the picture.

I would think that something like Tavern Ruffian  Flip looks kinda sus cuz certain features like the hairline and jawline just do not do her human form any favors.

Ahhhh I see that makes sense.

Damn, was really hoping I could do some shenanigans with that lmao. Thanks for the explanation.

I was thinking, if you sacrificed one of the Kaldheim Gods on their artifact side to Oswald Fiddlebender, would Oswald see the god's creature side as the mana value and allow you to search for an artifact that's one mana value higher than said side?

For instance, could I search for a 5 CMC artifact if I sacced Halvar's Sword of the Realm side? Or would Oswald no longer register the "artifact" as an artifact but instead as a creature once it's in the graveyard?

Imma try this deck in Arena. It looks very fun to pilot.

I hekkin knew Blood Fountain would be sick in affinity/metalcraft decks when it was revealed. Who knew such an innocuous common would be so versatile in Modern formats.

Yooooo the Skyshroud Cutter tech is ingenious.

I tried to make Wretched Gryff work in BU but my iteration needed way too much set up to get going. I thought of making use of Unearth creatures like First-Sphere Gargantua by effectively getting out a beefy boi I can swing relatively early with before saccing them for the gryff. But again, I gotta mill or discard the Gargantua first if I wanna get him out before turn 6, and that might give my opponent too much time to just kill me before that gets going.

Skyshroud Cutter basically cuts the middle man out and just does his thing, which I appreciate more.

I'd replace Dredge with Deadly Dispute or Village Rites. If you have a reliable way to gain life, then Plumb the Forbidden can potentially draw you a bunch of stuff.
