Thank you for sharing.

There is a Demon Dragon in MtG: Malfegor. He's kind of narrow but has a strong effect.

I made this username while I was in high school, which now seems to have been such a long time ago; I choose the words "demon" and "dragon" because those are two of my favorite creatures in fantasy stories and the letter "J" because my real name begins with that letter.

At the time that I chose this name, it sounded very cool, but, now that I am older, I realize that it sounds very corny, but I have been using it for so long that I see no reason to change it, now.

That is a very fascinating origin story.

Hi DemonDragonJ! My RL name is Marc. A very long time ago, a group of my employees and their friends started playing MtG. When they found out I played and that I also ran RPGs for other friends, they asked me to teach them how to play. And one day asked me to invent a RPG based on MtG. So I did. I ran the MtG RPG for a couple years and hosted/organized MtG game nights for probably 10-12 years and I was their rules guru for RPGs and MtG. Some of them started calling me Magic Marc. When I signed up here, it was the first thing that popped into my head as a handle for me to use with the site.

DemonDragonJ: I just realized you said, All of your EDH decks, right?

What is the reason for that? Love of the card? Types of decks you play? The only way you can put Akroma, Angel of Wrath in every deck you have without splashing white? Or is it a staple you just add to everything?

The only deck I run Akroma's Memorial in is my favorite white deck: Totes My Goats.

Adding the boosts from the memorial to a battlefield filled with Goat tokens is a lot of fun.

You can go infinite spellslinging with her ultimate. So she is great in a deck built around her and abusing her ultimate. I agree she's a good include for superfriends and/or proliferate decks.

The post is because the Gatherer was listing the TWC cards as not legal in any format. Looks like its been fixed though: Lucille at The Gatherer.

I need to check that out. Never heard of it before.

Frost Bite would be most excellent if it was any target. Still nice but for a second I thought it was a new Lightning Bolt.

Thank you for the upvote! I wanted to mention that this deck has rotated out of Standard so is not legal for competitive brawl events but is great for casual, kitchen table games.

I can't imagine a viewer was going to dissect 100% of the lyrics of 1 song in the film during their first viewing ever and have the ending spoiled for them. I agree it seems a weak reason.

January 14, 2021 11:06 p.m.

I remember seeing somewhere that Veteran of the Psychic Wars was a late replacement for another song they had written but I don't remember why it was changed.

January 13, 2021 11:35 p.m.

Both Analog and Heavy Metal were where I got most of my exposure to sci-fi writers I may not have known about yet or new writers I had never seen before and I would go buy books from them after reading their short stories or excerpts inside issues of Heavy Metal and Analog.

I am a huge fan of this film, the animation and the amazing music that makes up the soundtrack. I have even made a deck inspired by Veteran of the Psychic Wars by Blue Oyster Cult that uses Psychic Vortex and Words of War to win games. Which is literally a "Psychic War". You can see it here: Veteran Of The Psychic Wars.

So, thank you for posting this anniversary thread!

There actually is a central theme and story to Heavy Metal. It even comes full circle over the course of the various vignettes.

Spoiler Alert

After the opening sequence we are, in the first vignette, introduced to the Loc-Nar which is the "Sum of All Evils" and it begins to terrorize the little girl and show her how through the ages and in various worlds it twists and destroys all that is good. During each of the following stories you see the Loc-Nar over and over again tempt and destroy everything and then, in the Taarna sequence, a warrior women sacrifices herself to destroy the Loc-Nar. In the final scene, you discover the little girl is a reincarnation of the warrior woman who flies away as the Loc-Nar explodes.

End Spoiler

For me, the movie is all about choice and the cycle of life. This means that evil is real, omnipresent and never truly can be defeated. But your life and your deeds matter. And you can make a decision to do the right thing or let the Mob Rule. So how you live your life is what's important.

And the soundtrack is one of the best samples of rock and roll in the era at the time the film was made. Black Sabbath, Nazareth, Blue Oyster Cult, Riggs, Don Felder, Devo, Steve Nicks and more. Lot of great music.

I was a kid when I saw this at a Midnight show in the movie theater when it came out and I have seen many of the featured bands in concert.

Here is another one:

Minion's Return + Phyrexian Altar + Sun Titan

You need all of them in play and Minion's Return enchanting your Sun Titan.

Then you sacrifice Sun Titan to Phyrexian Altar, generating 1 mana of any color.
Minion's Return triggers, returning Sun Titan to the battlefield.
Sun Titan triggers, returning Minion's Return to the battlefield.

Repeat forever

With this combo you get: Infinite colored mana, Infinite ETB, Infinite LTB, Infinite sacrifice triggers, and Infinite death triggers.

There are quite a few auras you can use instead of Minion's Return that will do the same thing.

You can add Ob Nixilis, Unshackled to that Maralen of the Mornsong and Opposition Agent that smackjack listed. Then they will take 10 on every search and your agent will let you take over the search.

That is another good way, plakjekaas, to combo using the Phyrexian Altar. I am a fan of that aura.
