Semi-Pro Gamer Izzet mage, loves aggro or anything that annoys LGS buds (or drives them literally insane)

That said, I love to talk to people, and I believe everyone should be welcomed to this amazing game with open arms!

I’m always willing to help you with a deck, to the best of my ability. Feel free to @ me if you see a fun deck!

⚠️WARNING⚠️: I can be very wordy.

I can’t believe I made top 3 decklords. I’ve met so many people along the way who should be here instead of me. But I’m here. Please don’t let it intimidate you. I’m a human just like you are, I love MTG like you do, and I love making new friends too!

To reiterate an earlier point, I love being mentioned, so do it whenever you want! I love new decks and I love new conversations!

Oh, and if I comment on your deck talking about format, I do it with the best intentions. I just want to help you not get in trouble at a tournament, and to help make sure you don’t confuse a new player, who might leave the game because “it’s too confusing”

thank you for the upvote!

I am still working out the deck list so it will see some changes. I am working to get it under 100.00 but be competitive enough to win games in casual/non-cEDH at FNM.

Responding here since I did not want to derail the thread--I generally prefer tagging if I am not currently active on the thread or if I have not been active on a thread for a bit, since that will draw my attention to the post. Otherwise, no preference whatsoever.

Which part was "canned," to use your word? Was it something that I said or something that you said?

You mentioned girlfriends in your post in my thread, so I wished to mention that I was in a relationship with a woman from September 2016 to December 2019, but that relationship did not work out, now I am seeking a new girlfriend, and that search has been extremely difficult and frustrating. I do not expect any actual women to be akin to any fictional women, nor will I worship any future girlfriends whom I may have, because worshiping someone and respecting someone often coincide, but are not automatically the same thing.

Thank you for your kind words; sadly, this is not the first time that someone has been rude to me, and I suspect that it will not be the final time, but I shall simply ignore it, as I have learned to do.

Rules Lawyer is actually quite simple. The comprehensive rules are long, but actually it’s quite simple to implement.

Moreover, that “combo” still doesn’t work. The orb stops etb triggered abilities, and the token isn’t made by a etb triggered ability.

Fun fact: there are two stores called Dueling Grounds, 1 in the Midwest, 1 in New England (or maybe the second is on the upper west coast? I forget).

Play it once, warm them ahead of time, let them ban it afterwards if they feel it was broken. And if all else fails, find a second playgroup.

Not super confident in my ability to make a balanced group of decks without giving myself a limitation like “1 booster box” tho, so I’ll probably start off with intro decks.

October 19, 2020 8:15 p.m.

I will admit, my favorite thing I’ve done to intro 2 new players to the game was to crack a box of WAR (I was in a better monetary situation and could afford to drop $120 on new players). I build a deck around each of the classic walkers, keeping themes from WAR in there, limiting myself to just the cards from the box, no mythics, 60 card decks. Then, after a few hours of showing them how the game worked, I told them they could go though the rest of the cards from the box to augment their favorite color’s deck, and that they could keep the cards. I also told them they could take cards that looked fun to them from the box. The rest got donated to the LGS. That was extremely fun. If I ever end up in that decent a monetary situation, I’ve got to do that again. It feels so great to make a new player’s day. Btw, one of the players I mentioned here started streaming MTGA on twitch about a week ago (idk his channel, sadly), and the other is in my EDH playgroup.

October 19, 2020 8:13 p.m.

And good call riotrunner! That’s definitely where I’ll head when I try to intro him to more specific formats!

October 19, 2020 7:37 p.m.

Caerwyn, you are a superstar! Thank you!

October 19, 2020 7:08 p.m.

I’m not sure if this is the right place to post this, so Caerwyn, feel free to move it.

Does anyone know where I can find decklists for the free “welcome decks” WotC sends out to MtG clubs at LGSs, schools, and libraries?

I was just chatting with an EDH playgroup friend about MtG, and my boyfriend expressed interest in learning how to play Magic!

I’m not sure how to start, I often kind of drop people in, and I have a pretty good success rate. But, I recently gave away my low-power decks. So, I need to buy the decks I’ll be teaching him with.

I’d like to buy cards to make my own copies of the WotC welcome decks, because I need to keep this relatively low-budget.

I know some people are going to suggest Arena, sadly, my boyfriend is a console gamer, and due to COVID, we do not live together. MTGA is not supported on his laptop. I play Arena on a desktop, and all of our interaction has been taking place outdoors (once again, COVID). So we need to play it in paper.

So, does anyone know where I can find decklists for the welcome decks, or does anyone have cheap, low-power, simple brews that could serve the same purpose?

So yes, deck name listed in the url.

It’s “deck:ephara approaches again” inside the double square brackets. The reason I bring up the URL is because that will determine what you put in, when there is another deck with the same name.

October 19, 2020 6:30 p.m.

Said on How do I …...

#16

You need to make sure you call it exactly what it is referred to as in the url. It removes things like slashes and punctuation.

Ephara Approaches Again is an example of one of your decks, if I’m not mistaken. Make sure you don’t put a space after the “deck:” inside the double square bracket.

Infinite combo alert! Sporemound+Life and Limb. Make sure you have slimefoot (or some other card that damages when creatures die) out before messing with these though, plus a sac outlet. Otherwise, you’ll just infinitely make saprolings and be stuck in a loop, which you can never escape from.

October 19, 2020 4:28 p.m.

Ah “as” vs “when”. Got it.

October 19, 2020 2:15 p.m.

That’s because the discussion was initially about mono-white.

Wait...but if it stops the squirrel token from etbing, then you can’t lose the game when the squirrel token leaves the battlefield because it never entered...what am I missing? I could see that there’s a chance my friend was wrong, but I can’t see how the rules interaction would work.
