asdfase I actually don't remember saying that, nor do I know the reference.

I simply watched the primary 1/2 of Wolf of Wall Street. Then I see you say Blue Chip MTG Cards. What are the chances that I had in no way heard the expression to earlier than today and now I see it twice in 1 hour.

It is just a bunch of nerds hanging around someone's back patio, so it's not sanctioned.

DeinoStinkus I would love that. I already have two Verges for my two WG EDH decks, and if they print more I can get some of those for ALL my decks! They're so good at perfecting your mana t3.

Windswept Heath actually has an additional printing, which is why it's cheaper.

Not sure on Canopy Vista. There are no real competitive decks using it in Pioneer, and there's obviously 0 in Modern etc. The only thing I can think of is EDH, but I seriously doubt that GW is a more heavily played color combo than the others. AFAIK it's always been that way.

Can we just appreciate that the mana spread looks fricking awesome?

Oloro_Magic My sleeves are all pretty opaque(if that's the right word). Only one I'd be concerned about is my Mairsil, so I really just can't get cheap fetches for him.

No, griffstick, I'm not even sure if that was english. I can make out the words 'friends' and 'know what i mean?' but other than that I think you're talking French.

Side note, anyone else think French came from Cthulu?

August 6, 2020 2:18 p.m.

Since EDH is mostly a casual format, would you say(given my playgroup accepts) that I can use the World Championship Gold Bordered cards? Since there are some amazing cards that are much cheaper, I'd like to know your opinions.

Course it all just depends on what my playgroup says.

MindAblaze ah, yes, I too like to build monored 'nobody can have permanents, including me'

DeinoStinkus xD

Fortunately nobody's pulled a gun on me yet. I might have to use my foldable AK I keep in my [Redacted]* if it gets that bad.

*Redacted in case one of the people I used to play with see this post. I don't know if they know my current address, but it's better to be careful.

On that note, Pandemonium looks fun in tandem with land destruction, but then again, everything in red looks fun in tandem with land destruction. I recently found Epicenter....

Archetype sucks, it's too slow -- Supreme Verdict is all you need, really.

Basri really does nothing unless you already have a board of creatures.

Blind Obedience, while interesting in EDH, does nothing here. It literally does nothing. Trust me, I've tried to use it and I always end up cutting it.

Other than that, this can probably win games -- I'd personally put more removal in, though.

In my Sultai superfriends deck(I might splash white eventually tho for Elspeth, Sun's Champion) i have two main halves - black removal, and green/blue draw all the things. The digging engines are Narset, Parter of Veils and Oath of Nissa, which when combined can shift your deck at absurd rates. I also have 2x each Dig Through Time and Tamiyo, Collector of Tales. Combined, those two can dig quite a lot deeper than Oath/Narset but they're more mana intensive. One of my main win cons is looping my 1x The Eldest Reborn with Tammy, and you could do that with Elspeth Conquers Death or another saga.

August 5, 2020 12:15 p.m.

Ooooh a couple copies of Deploy the Gatewatch should be a viable top end. Syncopate is okay, but Quench is probably better. You'll also want Absorb.

August 4, 2020 4:28 p.m.


It really depends on your playgroup. I personally just run stupidly powerful cards and figure out awesome, under-the-radar really wack and unused interactions and see how much I can do with it.

If I lose, then I lose. To me, EDH is about seeing how many overly powerful interactions your friends will let you get away with before ganging up on you and whupping your butt.

Good thing is I always bring a knife with me just in case they get aggressive.

August 4, 2020 1:44 p.m.

Actually, I think that they are actively trying to support mono white lifegain. They've been doing it since M19.

Ballista is also the go-to whenever someone gets their hands on infinite mana, so...

August 4, 2020 1:41 p.m.

Oooh Jeskai Superfriends.

Like above, getting into green is great for Oath of Nissa, but Oath of Chandra is a decent 2-of as well. Oath of Gideon is okay, and I'd go to one Oath of Tef due to the fact that when it's good it's win more and when it's bad it does nothing.

The main advantage of Superfriends decks is time -- every turn you live is a huge benefit, meaning your opponent has to choose between killing you and disabling your walkers. So run removal, so they don't even have the chance to use that option! Everything in your creatures and artifacts sections pretty much sucks, mostly because it's too slow for a really minimum impact. Use your walkers to win. I'd cut those and a few of the worse walkers for 2-mana removal(counterspells like Quench count) and some number of wrath effects. Supreme Verdict is the absolute best if you can afford it.

The tricolor taplands aren't great, but you can make use of them. I'd only run the two triomes though and get something else.

One other thing: 4x Narset, Parter of Veils. She is the absolute best 3-drop here, and you care 0% if you play a second one because all you want is the 3-mana two-turn Dig Through Time.

Great concept though. If you can, any number of extra turn spells, but those are hard to come by with a reasonable cost in Pioneer so don't feel too much pressure.

I might have time to mess around with my sultai 'walkers deck soon.

Said on Why Does WotC ......


To drive the point home.... Darksteel Citadel is Ancient Tomb or Mishra's Workshop or sometimes even better(and it's indestructible) when used with Affinity(Frogmite and friends), gives one or more of your creatures +1/+0(Cranial Plating, is a 5/5 indestructible(Ensoul Artifact), can be sacrificed to give any of your artifact creatures a +1/+1 counter(Arcbound Ravager), fixes your mana(Glimmervoid and Spire of Industry), all at once.

That's not counting Krark-Clan Ironworks and Mox Opal which are banned in Modern, and everything in Legacy and Vintage that I don't know about because I don't pay attention.

It would be really awesome if we suddenly had 8 or 12 or, if we unbanned the original colored artifact lands, up to 24 total copies of that. Not that you need that many, but still.

And, with the combination of affinity and improvise, as well as some other specific cards, it is not only that but also Black Lotus. Of course, in that deck every thing is Workshop + Lotus + whatever else it was anyways, so the point is sorta moot.... until you realize that you can have a deck where everything, even your win conditions, are Lotus Workshops and the only reason the deck isn't good is because your 10+ t1 power has no evasion, even if it's partially consistent.

August 3, 2020 2:44 p.m.

Welp, I guess I won't sell out of the game yet.

Said on Why Does WotC ......


Have you ever looked at any artifact central strategy and not seen the playset of Darksteel Citadel? If you have, that deck was doing it wrong.

Citadel is already a god-level land in any strategy that likes artifacts. Anything else would be overkill and put artifact strategies firmly on top of every single format they're legal in.

August 3, 2020 1:25 p.m.

I think people had been calling for bans for so long that they got tired.

I like the Pioneer bans, that's 4 combo decks I don't have to care about anymore.

Don't care about any of the other ones tho.

August 3, 2020 12:59 p.m.

Said on Why are some ......


Caerwyn interesting. I typically look at a meta, see what decks are there and figure out their play patterns, then build something deliberately different.

I don't particularly care for heavily used cards as long as they're expensive -- I'll throw down a Gprobe any day, if there was a format that allowed it. It's only $1 and I already have the playset. But I limit myself to $5 max w/out trades unless it's a land or something else I will absolutely be able to use forever. Like Sol Ring.

So, I wouldn't run these -- but not because they're bad. It's entirely because I like the challenge of brewing top tier decks with a minimal budget. I'm the idiot who'll run a $30 deck through a Modern tournament just to see how well I can do with that budget.

That said, repeatable colorless Ponder looks hot. I need me a few of those. Depressing pricetag tho.

Said on Help with jank ......


Hero of Bladehold effects if you go on the Heartless path.

Illness in the Ranks is better if you want Krenko's Command effects.

Blade Splicer with heartless.

Cruel Celebrant

Bastion of Remembrance. Ministrant of Obligation Myr Retriever x4 because if you draw 2 you go infinite with Heartless.

Pestilent Haze. Impact Tremors

July 30, 2020 5:33 p.m.

Oh, yeah, I forgot standard was a thing because I tend to ignore garbagefires.

Someday, somehow, maybe standard will be worth playing..... if I had infinite money and there was no other format in existence to play.
