Re: The Mono White Compendium

As i have said before, i absolutely love this project! Keep up the good work. No worries about not expanding to other colors - those get enough love already. That being sad, a [sym=c] thread should be a lot less work and a cool ongoing project. Don't feel obliged to write that one yourself though, ...

Re: Your last legacy games

We jammed some games of solidarity high tide and urza-bomberman hybrid vs RUG delver and TES storm. Some good games; some non-games (chalice and karn on the board is hard to crawl out of from TES side). Trying to find some other fun deck to bring to the paper legacy nights. Am trying to brew somethi...

Re: [mtgnexus] Random Card of the Day - Hinder

I don't think its all THAT bad, is it?

I mean its a 3 cmc counter, sure, but its still a hard counter that doesn't let your opponent use their yard.

That being said, it's been a while since I've put it in a deck. In fact, of the 2 blue decks i have, it's not in either of them.

Re: How to help a bad deckbuilder?

If you wanna help someone brew more effective decks, take the time to talk to the person after and ask those reflection questions. How did it go? problems? and if there were problems, what were they? how to solve them? If they don't listen/take that advice/suffer from confirmational bias among other...

Re: Imperial Recruiter / Recruiter of the Guard

I use recruiters mostly as part of a toolbox hatebear package. I have a GW combo deck with saffi, but i use that rager of eos, captain of eos (i cant exactly recall their names) and recruiter for relevant hatebears like teeg, thalias and so on, or removal, like fiend hunter. I tend not to reuse thos...

Re: Shrine decks: can't live with 'em, can't stab their owners.

I probably would have done the same. If my opponent plays a card (i don't generally care too much about the card type) that says "draw 2 cards, and gain 5 life every turn", it has def got to go. Even if the deck itself is super durdly and doesn't do anything (exception being if the deck is a bunch o...

Re: [mtgnexus] Random Card of the Day - Krond the Dawn-Clad

Ive never seen him in the wild. But just off the top of my head, i imagine some sort of GW control-ish deck using the general as a finisher. That could be something. GGGWWW isn't that hard to do i think; the deck has white in it. even if you use a relatively budget manabase. Some number of into the ...

Re: Threat assessment: The player or the deck or both?

I kinda think in this order most of the time: 1. What I know of the deck 2. The game state 3. The player piloting it. My playgroup has been toning it up somewhat recently, so just knowing what the deck is like plays a lot in my threat assessment. It's usually the deck that limits what the pilot can ...

Re: Playing commanders that have aged badly

I'll just echo what most people have said here. I've a lord of tresserhorn "when this dies" tribal. And a rakdos the defiled suicide aggro deck. And a zedruu the voltron deck. None are competitive in the sense that they'd win tonnes, but they have their moments! I'm sure there are better generals to...

Re: [mtgnexus] Random Card of the Day - Wrath of God

Day of judgement isn't necessarily worse; if you run some general with regenerate, then day of judgement is like a one-sided wrath often enough. But yea, I don't use wrath of god cuz I don't have any white decks at all. The last time I did have a deck with white, I did actually start with one in. Ma...

Re: Playing by your own rules: Suicide deck

To be honest, I have a rakdos the defiler suicide aggro deck that occasionally kills itself. Sometimes, it's a demonic consultation gone wrong, or a lich that lands too early.
The goal is never to actively lose though; more actively pushing the game forwards. Tempo at the expense of life and cards.

This seems a nice variant I could try alone. "problem" is that I don't really have enough tokens or tribal sinergy to make a good horde, except for dragons and a horde of dragons in 5 colors...

Another thing worth noting though (don't recall it being brought up) is what sort of games she's already used to. If she's like me, and likes rules-heavy games like wargames, 18xx, or even keyword heavy games like cloudspire and so on, then maybe EDH isn't necessarily the worst place to start. She'd...

Re: [mtgnexus] Random Card of the Day - Archmage Ascension

I've only really used the black one in a demon-tribal deck. But it didn't end up being good enough. Typically, when i bash in with rakdos the defiler , my opponent ends up saccing a lot more than just 1 guy. Having one other creature that makes them sac 2 more permanents (stacking triggers to force ...

Re: [mtgnexus] Random Card of the Day - Mastery of the Unseen

Wow.. never seen that card before. But it seems good on the surface. So far, the only real CA engine i've seen in white is land tax and scroll rack. ANd that requires that there's another player with more lands in play than I do, and costs mana per turn. Maybe i need to combine this with equilibrium...

Re: Most fun commanders/decks to play against

Of that list, I've only played against ruhan, phelddagrif, mayael, xantcha and braids. Braids especially i'm not 100% sure why anyone would consider it fun. It would seem to me that it's a sort of 'let the player with the best deck' win faster most the time. Mayael and ruhan are cool, xantcha is dou...

It should work with blink effects, right? seems like it should be good. Has the potential to be outright busted in some decks, id imagine.

Actually, couldn't there be some sort of subformat 'handicap'? i.e. if you're playing a tiny leaders vs a table of normal EDH decks, then maybe you could get a 8 card starting hand. Maybe if you're on a pauper build, you can start with 45 life instead. That way, players wouldn't need to feel bad for...
