Re: [mtgnexus] Random Card of the Day - Junk Diver/Myr Retriever

junk diver myr retriever Workshop Assistant I'm a big fan of these type of effects. Don't forget about Workshop Assistant and the absolutely busted, when built around it, Scrap Trawler . As someone who's always pretty curve-centric, i'd pick Myr Retriever first. I love looping it in my Teshar, Ance...

Re: [mtgnexus] Random Card of the Day - Flametongue Kavu

I don't think I run Kavu in any of my decks. It's good and all, but none fit in the kinda decks I happen to run. In fact, it gets hosed by my tresserhorn deck (torpor orb/leaves the battlefield theme) deck. Just curious though, aside from blinking/regrowth sorta things, are there other ways to reall...

It'd be used more often if I had more BWx decks.

The Mono White Compendium

I didnt see mentioned, but isn't scroll rack + land tax something worth bringing up as a very good card draw engine? I think every mono white deck ive ever played had it in it (both in EDH and legacy). Anyways, i've not had problems winning with mono white. The only reason why i dont have the deck a...

Re: What's your most unusual commander and/or deck?

(The Zedruu build is highly unusual, too, but tstorm823 can speak to it since its his.) I don't know, Zedruu seems like a pretty popular answer in here. It's probably the right answer, but I want to say something different. I've a zedruu voltron deck. Full of 1-2 cmc auras like bravado and blue sca...

Re: Skip all my turns deck

I built this exact deck a long time ago, with karona, false god at the helm. Just watch karona beat everyone else to a pulp while you sit on the side and skip your turns. the secondary win con was natural decking while you're phased out. It wasn't great though. I will say, my build has more tutors f...

Re: Quick PSA: sometimes it's OK to be greedy

I think you could probably call these things heuristics. And they really do have value because it lets you reduce the mental load of playing the game and offload it to pre-defined algorithms essentially, but people need to know that learning the rules is just a step on the way to playing well.

Re: Proxies in Commander

To be honest, i think proxying leads to some pretty unhealthy things (that i've seen). Sure, it's unfair that I'm the only one in my meta who's been playing since before alara or something (i started with revised-ish era), so i happen to also have some old bonkers cards. I get that. But when we (my ...

So I'm about to start a mtg games group at my local school, and have a few pupils who are into mtg already.

Re: How many Dual Lands do I need?

Are 2 ports the norm? most goblin players ive played against have played the full 4 (i think). the mana-denial strategy is definitely a strong win-con against many decks. It could be a thing, but i'd also suggest you find a stock list of mono-red goblins and give it a whirl. I'm not sure if modern g...

Re: [mtgnexus] Random Card of the Day - Compulsive Research

It's ok, but unless you can actually leverage the discarded land, it's not all that great. Good in loam decks i guess, but at that point,there're probably better ways to increase card advantage.

One thing that's made my powered cube (non-edh) awesome is ante cards. In cube, I generally make it a Swiss tournament thing, so ante cards can actually work. There's only a handful of actual playable ones, but it could be interesting.
