Re: Magic : The Gathering : The Thread : The Rename

The store I play at has a bunch of proxy legacy and modern decks for play-testing. Screwing around with those and sometimes jamming invigorate into my Modern Infect deck are pretty my only exposure to playing legacy. I'd love to get my hands on the pieces for something like Tom Ross's UG Legacy Inf...

Re: Magic : The Gathering : The Thread : The Rename

Unrelated to fetches, but have any of ya'll folks done any legacy? At the moment I'm putting together a maverick build, I would love to play dnt, but 4 krakas are out of the budget for a long time

Re: Magic : The Gathering : The Thread : The Rename

Fetches are nice, too bad the set seems so low power otherwise. But I'm willing to overlook a LOT for fetches that don't cost 200-400$ for a set. I'm going to bet that fetches are also printed in event decks, 20-30 dollar lands would make standard players mad as hell. Enjoy your modern prices.

A local band from Austin, The Sword. Stoner metal, and they completely take after Black Sabbath.

Re: Magic : The Gathering : The Thread : The Rename

Hey, my local store is doing the same thing!.

What do you think of the modern event deck? I personally am very disappointed in the mana base, I mean, what the hell is city of brass doing in a 2 color aggressive deck?

Re: Magic : The Gathering : The Thread : The Rename

I guess if I only have 59 cards, then a phyrexian arena, garruk primal hunter, or tombstalker is the best thing to fill the spot.

This is for modern. I'm currently playing G/W hatebears, no fetches. When they are reprinted, or if I win the lottery, I plan to build one of the three; Maverick, Junk, or Naya . Goyf is right out also. Knight of the Reliquary, thrun, and voice would be in all of these decks Naya gets me Thundermaw ...

Re: Magic the Gathering: Duels of the Planeswalkers

At least in paper magic, the traditional counter to white weenie decks tends to be board wipes, like pyroclasm. Are there not any good control-ish decks? My problem with this sort of magic is that if I spend money on cardboard, I would like my cardboard to be real. I'm also a little sore that the ar...

Re: Magic : The Gathering : The Thread : The Rename

I give WOTC credit, they're printing cards FOR modern and balancing it just like they do with standard. It's impressive given the pile of cards they have to deal with. They've also pretty substantially minimized the power gap between standard and modern. Newer players can more easily play against m...

I wish that fetch lands didn't cost 50$ each. I have a fun looking junk hate deck I would love to play, but I cant realistically get the fetchlands at their current prices.

Re: Magic : The Gathering : The Thread : The Rename

Well, I'm not entirely sure that deathrite deserved the axe, but I guess it was the least worst card to ban to stop jund from being 40% of the meta. On a related note, a bunch of the jund players here are complaining how their goyf/lilly/bob shell is now "unplayable". Is it just me, or doe...

Re: Recommend a book

I'll recommend The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell.

In short, aliens are discovered, and the first people sent to their planet are a team of Jesuit missionaries and scientists. Then everything goes horribly wrong.
A fantastic look at a distinctly alien race, and a good read.

I've found that I tend to get the most enjoyment out of the game on classic with a good chunk of the second wave options enabled.. Impossible is just a liiitle too much. Perhaps some "hardcore" mode between impossible and classic would be a good idea, with a slight boost to the ai stats, a...

Hatebears is almost identical to death and taxes, minus the stoneforge package, and the krakas+wasteland+ rishadan port. Anyway, got some help from friends and am working on a rock list. The ultimate plan is to build it into jund at some point down the road 4x Deathrite Shaman 4x Scavenging ooze 3x ...

If anyone here knows anything about legacy, i'm looking for a decent (cheap) deck to start with. If it helps, I have 4 rites, 2 lillies, and most of the shocks(original duals are way out of budget). Was looking at either dredge, affinity, or goyfless rock, still need bobs tho. I also have a Hatebear...

A lot of my opponents removal had been used by that point, so I wasn't too worried, and I just wanted to make sure that the hydra could kill him, vault of the archangel and deathtouch is a pain.
