hapatra is cute!
>>63390147>tqI was really sad when I realized that this doesn't work with land animation in Jolrael.
3rd for Avacyn and all cute, pure, feminine, fair skinned angels
Library of Leng, for Wild ResearchI mean it still kinda works, except I expected a demonic tutor + vampiric tutor, and only got an unreliable, repeatable demonic tutor
>>63390147>TQpic very much related
I once made a deck with 20 lotus vales because I was a fool
>>63390182doesn't really change your outcome, but I thought this was a fun interaction
>>63390239Angels are for ________
>>63390278the fuck is this shit from?Also, ANOTHER lands matter creature?
>>63390278>"people sure do want that Hazezon Tamar reprint... let's do it but furry!"
Post spicy stax
>>63389300Wastes doesn't have a basic land type. They might be a basic land, but they do not have a type like Forest, Plains, etc. The guy is right; no lands with a basic land type produce colorless mana.
>>63390278If its his damage is probably something clownshoes like1/2*
>>63390310I'll take a furry beefcake over a sandnigger any day
>>63390278>>63390339stop posting fake cards
>>63390342If its real, edited too much
>>63390299Hugs and sometimes fugsdo you have more of this art
>>63390339>>63390278wait, these were the C18 fakes. Forgot about them
>>63390348Ok I'm going to post a real card instead
>>63390304>>63390310It's a fake from before c18 was spoiled, this furry, some puppet dude, nissa and something equally as retarded
>>63390378>literally no point to casting himquality design
>>63390378Not a real card since the back isn't correct
>>63390409So Delver of Secrets isn't a real card either?
>>63390378DELET THIS>>63390379God, I forgot how ridiculously stupid these designs were. Thanks for reminding me
>>63390404>zombie elf wizard fir tribal mechanics>cryptolyth rite>rooftop stormThats literally it right there
>get excited for a new Kaalia>she is fakeI liked the art, too.
>>63390424There's a magic card on both sides so it's realcheckmate atheists
>>63390424No card is real except Krenko
>>63390444"Insectile Aberration" what game is this from? Can't be Magic, I don't see any mana symbols and it's not a land either...
>>63390362There's these I posted but otherwise I don't think the artist did any more official magic angels.>>63359835>>63359808>>63359800
>>63390478Wanna try again?
fuck these threads go by fast. lets slow it down eh?
>>63390438>play rooftop storm>so I can recast him whenever he dies because I didn't just leave him in the command zone
>>63390492Mana symbol in the text box
>>63390440Wow, did it hurt when they gave you your lobotomy?
>>63390529Oh God they are real? I saw some anons say they were fake and just assumed.
>>63390496What? Are you medically retarded?
>>63390516Oh no, where'd they go
>>63390479Thank you, blessed anon.
>>63390299Fluffy Hugs>>63390278>>63390339>>63390378>>63390379These have mad decent art for bootlegs>>63390479>>63390362Here, have another
I am excited for my UMA box!
>>63390501Its not primarily about casting him. Uou can cast zombies and play gy reanimator because of the free command zone discard and then also have a zombie etb in the command zone so you can use him as a combo for zombie tribal. He would be really fun as a durpy theme deck and as a busted combo commander.
>>63390592Yootoob it faggot
What's a good commander for mono blue? I want a sort of good stuff but counter control maybe mill feel?
>>63390612Thassa, Nezahal, Kefnet
>>63390379Someone redpill me on the new kaalia, I'm too much of a brainlet to make my own judgments.
>>63390625It's fake. It was passed around a couple months ago during the last commander product spoiler season. Any anon telling you otherwise is lying
>>63390625Its bait to get people to not play edgar markov anymore. Also its to reinforce shes a beast fucker and she summons beasts.
>>63390612ambassador laquatus or stitcher geralf
>>63390592Based baby grinch UMA box poster
>>63390562They're fake. Anon is fucking with you.
>>63390693>Hexproof from blackhow did anyone get tricked by this in the first place
>>63390172>hapatra has salmonellaand e colithe real -1/-1 counters.
>>63390699Angels are women and being gay is a sin in the bible. Im gunna guess its also a sin to fuck an angel so thats just as bad as fucking the beasts.
>>63390706Sometimes I worry about you guys
>>63390785christ that's awful
>>63390706That's actually the wording on Knight of Grace.>>63390754Pls don't compare angels to beasts. Angels are pure, you heathen.
>decide to watch modern GP Atlanta from round 10 to directly look at the d2 serious matchs>players make painfully obvious misplays EVERY. SINGLE. TURN of EVERY. SINGLE. MATCH>shit like the dude have a total of four manas open, think for 2 minutes, finally play thalia THEN RIP, of course it's not only pants on head retarded, but that's also illegal>opponent say nothing, the two judges say nothing while it's the fucking COVERAGE TABLE>every turn some huge misplays of the same caliber happen, no one say anything about it but the commentator who is obviously very uncomfortable with the situation>they are supposed to be '''''''''''''pro''''''''''' playersWhy are modern players so utterly bad at magic? Even t2 casu aren't this bad, it's almost like modern players are doing this on fucking purpose.... The coverage triggered a stomach ulcer, i puked blood during the top8...
>>63390812Just come back on the weekend. It's slow as fug
How -necessary- is Phyrexian Tower?>Land, not a spell>But it taps when used, only one sacrifice a turn without land/permanent untapping synergy
>>63390831it's a great card
>>63390799Jeez dude, chill out
>>63390795Well most have animal wings, so thats a beastial feature if you think about it.
>>63390795post more cute angels
>>63390831It's as necessary as your need for efficient mana
>>63390866I just want to be sure. I do not have land-untapping interactions in this deck, but a reliable sac outlet, a land at that, seems very safe and desirable. Still would rather whip out the Ashnod's or Phyrexian Altars.
>>63390858No. If so then men are beasts. There is a fundamental difference between beast and higher-consciousness beings.
I love angels!
>>63390847I was super chill before looking at this shitfest, but it's not the first time i look a modern gp coverage (maybe the 3rd time idk) and each time it was the same awful cringe inducing misplays festival. Why? Why can't they use their brain? Hell they don't even have to use their brain modern is alrdy for brainlets... Why can't they simply do basic tasks?I never saw shit like this in pauper, legacy nor cedh, it's specific of modern, and to this magnitude of misplays i've the feeling i had a big youtube hallucination.I just wanna know why frens.....
>>63390889Run it along side them. It's a real easy addition, just switch out a swamp.
>>63390899we are to angels as beasts are to us
>>63390799>rapidly shuffles hand like a sperg every 3 seconds>checks graveyard every between every few hand shuffles>taps foot or moves leg while thinking>needlessly bends the corners of the cards when playing them to make a pop like its the fucking international poker tournament>"pass?"you know the one
>>63390899Well a bird is a beast and it has beast wings, making it part beast. She just has all the good parts of a beautiful woman with beast wings from her back.
>>63390905me too, you should post more cute angels
Is $48 a good deal for a LP Academy Rector? Should i buy one?
>>63390831It's a good sac outlet, same as High Market.>>63390864I'll post what I got
>>63390911Yeah, not worried about that part. Just if I NEEDED to be able to untap it to get optimal use out of it, or if it is well useful enough as a once-a-turn sac outlet that is safe from most interaction.
>>63390953I'd say so.LP is still high quality and you're getting for a little over half price.
>>63390953>Should I get a reserve list card for a good price?Yes?
>>63391022we need more angels like this in magic desu
>>63390378>okay at the end of your turn I'll pay 4 mana and discard 2 cards to get devoted druid + vizier of remedies
>>63390953thats a very good deal actually.I'm amazed at how 'cheap' are the RL staples lately. I mean of course i expected the prices to cool off after the big april/may spikes, but since few weeks i noticed a lot of good deals popping here and there. Probably related to some Xmas need in cashflow for gifts and various purchases but damn.I want to remind you all that usually the staples are at their lowest during january-february then start to climb up after and especially during the tax return season (it how you call it in USA right? it seems to be a burger thing only, why would you pay too much tax to begin with?).So don't forget to be patient and don't blow all your mtg money rn so you have some supply left for january good deals frens!
>>63390968I have a question that must have been asked many times and i'm sorry for this, but do avacyn archangel is considered monoW or boros because her flip side is red?
>>63391101Archangel is Boros, her flip side is indeed red.
>>63391115thx anonIs she the best boros have to propose then?
Assuming I can reliably get it into my graveyard, is Glory any good?
>>63391122She's the best boros commander that I'd propose to, that's for sure
>>63391144Only if you get the oy vey version
>>63391144>is 2W: Make my entire team unblockable/counter any targeted removal/stop any attacker in its tracks good?Does your deck play creatures? Do you often have mana to spare? Does your meta run a lot of graveyard hate?
>>63391144One of the most underrated under the radar card. Pick the merchant version of maximum chutzpah
>>63391144what did WotC mean by this
>>63391196>Glory>kavod>In Exodus 16:7 we read "and in the morning you shall see the glory of the LORD" (RSV). What is the "glory" of YHWH? First we must recognize that the "glory" is something that will be seen. Secondly, the word "glory" is an abstract word. If we look at how this word is paralleled with other words in poetical passages of the Bible, we can discover the original concrete meaning of this word. In Psalm 3:3 the kavod of Elohiym (God) is paralleled with his "shield" and in Job 29:20, Job's kavod is paralleled with his "bow." In Psalm 24:8 we read "who is this king of the kavod, YHWH is strong and mighty, YHWH is mighty in battle." The original concrete meaning of kavod is battle armaments. The meaning "armament" fits with the literal meaning of the root of kavod, which is "heavy," and armaments are the heavy weapons and defenses of battle. In the Exodus 16:7, Israel will "see" the "armament" of YHWH, the one who has done battle for them with the Egyptians. Basically Glory is the shield gifted to the jews by YHWH to win battles, so the protection is pretty spot on. Notice it's an "incarnation" which is pretty unique in mtg, it fly, so coming from the heaven.The fact it's from the judgment edition is probably not a cohencidence either.Also notice the "grave use" logo used back then, top left corner, who not only look like a tombstone but also looks like one of the two holy table of the law with the 10 commandments.The art must also carry some meaning (mount sinai fo the mountain? golden dome representing the Dome of the rock mosquee? which is built on the remain of the Solomon's temple, itself built on top of the temple mount hill?)
I don't have this deck up in paper at the moment, but I'll cycle back into it.>Mardu>Attack triggers matter on some key creatures, invested in attack enablers like Dolmen Gate, Dauthi Embrace, and Reconnaissance>Has Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth>Recursion subtheme, and Entomb, Buried Alive, and Gamble (red Entomb) to get specific cards in graveyard Is Filth an obvious include? Takes a little more setup, but seems like a far more efficient use of card slots than something like Whispersilk Cloak that just makes one creature evasive/unblockable.Still a fan of Trailblazer Boots in theory.
>>63391358god I wish I knew who this artist was
Hey ya'll, would an Omnath, Locus of Mana deck work with Azusa as a Liutenant or would that be a stupid move?Also, How many Eldrazi titans should I pre-order rn. Infinite Gyro Ulamog is like 16.
>>63391372I'll reveal my secret but you've gotta post some spicy tech for me first.
they're never going to do another set of cards like this are they?
>>63391417>don't want to reveal secret>post a pic with the patreon and twitter account of the artistwhat did he mean by this?
>>63391420of course they will. "premium" product is their now favorite way to free the stupid goyim from their shekels. We have them basically every 2 months now.
>>63391442The secret tech was inside of you all alongAlso I'm retarded
>>63391420Anon, stop being so greedy. We just got Mythic Edition and Ultimate Masters Ultimate Box Toppers in the same year. That's TWO masterpiece sets!
>>63391463i wont be surprised if one day the original versions become more valuable than all the masterpieces edit they will shart out every two weeks.
>>63391456>>63391463i meant specifically the kaladesh masterpiece set. i really liked the bronze design
>>63391514probably not with the exact same framing. They also are my favorites masterpieces, but you are either too late or too soon to purchase them at an affordable price.
>>63391417please tell me that you are actually the artist
>>63390910My best guess is that it has the largest competitive fanbase (I think, don't have numbers to quote) so in attracting so many you're bound to also draw in the clinically retarded. It just shows more cause it's more visible. If edh had coverage (god forbid) you'd see jsut as much retardation I'm pretty sure.I tried to fork a necromancy cause i brainfarted and forgot it was an enchantment tonight.
>>63390479artist is .less also known as Haohi
>>63391661Sorry anon but I'm nowhere near that talented.
>>63391661He's currently taking a nap but I've told him of this adhoc shrine to him.Also, ten points to whoever can figure out what this card is an alt of
>>63392014pls tell him he is doing god's work
>>63392064Ooo, a clever one Heres the finished piece
>>63392100Ah good, they made the ends of the staff more oval shapes. That was the most confusing portion with the sketch.
>>63392014Tell him I love him and I hope he has a very pleasant forever.
>>63392188>>63392182>>63392125>>63392100>>63392014I'm honestly surprised he doesn't have more patrons. I just checked his patreon and its only like 70
I love angels as much as the next guy but this is /edhg/ not angeldumping general.
>>63392182Hold the fucking phone aren't those supposed to be mother and (adoptive) daughter?
>>63392230That's not Aiko.
>>63392248Oh. too bad
>>63392214>angEl Dumping generalHCome on man, can't you read?
>>63392214Sorry, my bad. Here's your regularly scheduled shitpost.
>>63392214Alright, who is this famous EDH commander?
>>63392344its burnt offering
What's going on in this thread?By the Elders!
>>63392344Where did she get her two (three?) pairs of wings? I didn't see anything about that in her lore.
At long last, my angelposting has paid off.
>>63392384a wizard did it
>>63391171Yeah, when you put it that way, it sounds pretty good.
should I do it?
>>63392866top kek, is this card real?
Would deathgorge scavenger likely be the best dinosaur to cut in a Gisnath dinosaur tribal? I got the new one from the gift pack and I’ve been trying to cut. Rampaging ferocidon shuts off my healing potential but hurts token decks a lot. Goring ceratops is expensive for a 3/3 but the effect is nice. All non creature cards and lands are absolutely necessary.
>>63392893Not only is it real, but it's on the reserve list.
>>63390172I like how you can build her for less than 100 dollars. The most expensive thing you might want is a Cradle.
>>63390299Unmaking while Jace beatboxes.
>tfw trying to close the game with monoW hatebearsI thought that hatebears are supposed to be grueling for my opponent, not for me
>>63393138Are you running Approach of the Second Sun?
>>63393080The angel's Haohi. She's cute.The demon is Akai. He's Haohi's husbando.The donut loli is Aiko. She's the couple's adopted daughter.The artist is .Less. He's great.
>>63393144>pay 7 mana + whatever tax your own Thalias & co. demand, then wait 7 turns to win because white card draw blows gorilla nuts>unless it's countered, in which case go back to plan A of beating down three opponents with a pair of 2/1s
>>63393232Is that his OCs ?
>>63393069*unintelligible beatboxing* along with some assorted pastas and that guy who ripped his Squandered Resources in half are probably my favorite things to come out of /edhg/.>>63393273Yes.
>>63393241It'll close out a game. The tax is irrelevant if no one else can do anything. Plus, it'll work in every deck.I'd suggest some life gain wincons, but unless he has a robust life gain package, that's not really able to close out the game too.
>>63390281I still don't understand how this card got past the black-border patrol.
>>63393320what it does is pretty simple from a rules standpoint, and it was in conspiracy, a set with lots of unique effects. it's pretty low on the list of dubious conspiracy designs.
What is your favorite card art?Pic fucking related
>>63393502Howard Lyon just does great stuff in general. All the gals he draws look really soft.
I'm building Darien, are there any things I should look out for? I'm guessing I have to put him on the field for as long as possible, so I put a Darksteel Plate in it along with a bunch of tutors for it that I can also use for Skullclamp if needed.
>>63393718it's more you try to win as soon as you play himalso the soul sisters make you invulnerable to damage with darienskullclamp and lands that hurt you are goodreally the hard part is finding ways to hurt yourself
>>63393718>>63394023Is darien the only commander where aetherfluxing yourself can actually be a good idea?
>>63393502the mailman just delivered today the recuring i ordered last week, indeed the card is neato.I can't wait for sheldon to unban it now.
>>63394023I have all the lands that hurt you, and an expedition map. I also have the Jinxed Choker and Idol. I wish I mana Vault was cheaper, I can afford it but my table would frown upon it.
You said angel?
Steven > Jonathan > Jeremy >>>>>>>>>>>> Justin
>>63394103I just read an article he wrote on SCG about being more liberal banning cards but being more reserved changing other things. Sell your copy it'll never be legal. Unless you don't play RC rules because they're casual hacks.
>>63394561Jeremy would be great if he remembered his triggers or didn't pussy out of attacking so much.
>>63394576nah it's ok, just for the art i would keep it. And i play nic fit in legacy so it could be proven useful one day anyway.
>girl I'm fucking is moving>used to play magic back in the day, finds this in her houseWhat are the odds anything good is in there?
>>63394990Open it and find out
>>63394990Bob and Doubling Season. Not much else. Life from the Loam dropped due to UMA.
>>63394561Almost correct. I like Steven's showmanship, but I appreciate John's playstyle more.
>>63395066I'll post the results tomorrow when I see her.>>63395075Honestly? I'm hoping for kawigama jank and some aether vials because I think both sets are pretty close, and it would have been dirt cheap to grab good stuff.
>>63395094Well, you might get lucky. Doubling Season was just a crap rare back then.
>>63394990>75 cardsI don't remember these packs.
>>63394990Well they go for about $50 so thats cool.
>>63395692Is it just 5 boosters or are they themed or sorted? I've never seen these before and Ravnica is one of the blocks I bought the most from.
>>63395806I recall that it's a premade deck with a sideboard and maybe a foil land. I bought one of those, but it was an Odyssey one.
>>63394561Justins great, what are you smoking
So my friend just sent me a picture of the playmat he just ordered for me for Christmas. I just hope my LGS doesn't ban it.
>>63395847Our shops only had the theme decks like pic related. They were such great products, I have no idea why they watered it down so much with their planeswalker decks. Hell, the Mirrodin ones had cards that were too strong and got banned.
>>63395865>gets salty as fuck as soon as someone dares to attack him and bitches and whines about itHe's probably the best player, but fuck he's thin skinned.
>>63395643Tournament packs. They don't make them anymore. I have a bunch from ravnica, time spiral, and lorwyn.
>>63395875He should redo the edit on the higher res art for christmas. Makes for nicer mats as well.
>>63395875Link to where he bought it?
>>63395907This is the one I have. It's Simic
>>63395907These were actually decent decks. The Golgari one was the best in that set, but Boros came pretty closeThe Guildmage had some nice titties too
>>63394990>>63395643>>63395847>>63395907They're just tournament packs. They would use them instead of individual packs when playing sealed. They had a few rares, more uncommons, and a bunch of commons. I *think* they stopped making them after shadow moor.If that box was already open, it's probably just got chaff in it and got stored away.
>>63395984Threshold was a stupid mechanic, but Krosan Beast was cool. I have no idea why it's a squirrel though.
>scarab god>someone put their commander in their gy>i target their commander in their gy with scarab god>they choose to put it in command zone rather than exile>????Do I still get the token zombie copy?
>>63395968Don't know for sure but I know he got his custom mats inkedgaming so probably there.
>>63391872>censoredthis isn't fucking tumblr
Speaker of Angels, do any of you have a list for Boros Avecyn?
>>63393502For me, its Raymond Swanland. His art is always so vibrant and dynamic.
>>63390953I don't know, anon. Do you think spending $48 on a piece of shitty cardboard is a good investment when you can just play the game online, entirely free, with people all over the world?
>>63393502This card easily. I fucking love Alara-block and it's rares and mythics.
>>63396262I rec Aurelia or Gisela instead to be honest
>>63391384Either is good as a commander with the other in the 99. Just make sure to run Green Sun Zenith and Chord of Calling at the very least to tutor them. Wordly Tutor too.
>>63396262Are you going for angel tribal? If so, Archangel Avacyn may not be the commander you want since she only transforms when a non-Angel dies.
What reprints are you guys buying fron UMA?
>>63396751Tons but I'm waiting to pull the trigger until after prices drop further
>>63396301It may be easier to play with people on the other side of the world online, but it's a lot harder to do it with people across the table from you by popping out a computer,it's just easier to use cards.Also, everyone online is a cunt, if your looking for proof just take a look at your comment, or mine. It's clear to see which way to play is better.
IT'S NOT FAIR BROS I JUST WANT TO BUY ULTIMATE MASTERS BUT IM TOO GOD DAMN POOR.THE ONE FUCKING TIME IN MY LIFE THAT IM UNEMPLOYED AND WITHOUT MONEY THEY RELEASE THE MOST TIMMY PRODUCT EVER THAT I WANT MORE THAN ANYTHINGIM STARTING MY NEXT JOB IN A COUPLE OF WEEKS BUT BY THEN THE ONLY PLACE ILL BE ABLE TO GET THEM IS ON THE SECONDARY MARKET WHERE THEY ARE OVER INFLATED AS FUCKITS NOT FUCKING FAIR
>>63396854So two things1: you Won't be able to get a sealed box for a reasonable price in a minute here, that shits lgs only and limited supply. Sorry if you wanted box toppers2. The blister packs they are selling are going to be all over the fucking place and there is going to be a bazillion of them at big box stores like wallmart. You should be able to find deals or use toy coupons on those, and to top it off they probably aren't going to sell them all so in a few months they are going to be redistributed at a large markdown.You're fine unless you want to try your luck at the lavaclaw lottery.
>>63396923One of the things I was looking forward to was the excitement of opening box toppers
>>63396751Bitterblossom, which will be probably only one I'll buy. I'll get maybe 3-5 boosters in total as well. If LotV drops enough, I'll get one of her.
>>63390953Who's grading it? I've gotten LP cards from tcgplayer that looked pack fresh, and I've seen "LP" cards in ebay that look like they've been through a washing machine.
>>63390831It's amazing. It's ramp and a sac outlet in one. If you have one, there's little reason to not run it in a black deck.
--63394990Doesn't look sealed to me
>>63390592 You posted it.... again..... for like the 3rd day in a row
>>63396923>You're fine unless you want to try your luck at the lavaclaw lottery.Big money, big money, no lavaclaw, STOP! >lands on Stirring Wildwood
>>63394561They should bring back that gay nerd the viewers bullied off the show, watching him be bad was entertaining
So scg has some pretty sweet deals right now, snagged a lp Academy Rector for $48. Now I can finally build my janky orzhov combos deck, feat. Barren Glory.What are some efficient ways to put cards from your hand back into your library? Say, in case I get stuck with Barren Glory in hand, and the combo only works if you can tutor it with rector.
>thread topicI haven't, but some friends just got into commander, and they thought Decimate didn't need all it's targets. For instance, just target an artifact, a creature, and a land. Had to explain to them that that would be stupid.Played in a legacy tournament last night and won a game where I mulled to 4 and got three for 1'd. Chalice of the void is a hell of a card.
>>63397939Good for you but Chalice is the fucking worst. It should be banned from Legacy for the same reason it was restricted in Vintage. It makes the die roll have higher impact on the match, takes 0 skill to play, and creates games where neither player makes meaningful choices.I've been tempted to build the mono red Chalice deck but it's too mindless.
>>63396044Sure, why not? As long as the ability resolves you get what you paid for. Magic is a wonderful game :)
Stupid question here, what happens if you target a commander with pic and you choose to place it in the command zone instead? Do you still get to shuffle your library and potentially get a free permanent or do you not get a permanent due to replacing where your commander goes?
>>63398186Yeah they still get to do a Warp World flip and get a permanent.
>>63397569Yep, thanks. Anyone know anything else?
>>63397553One with Nothing + Elixir of Immortality
>>63397553>Tfw shipping costs basically negate salesWhy is being a leaf suffering?
What do I want for Christmas? A box of Ultimate Masters?Or $250 in singles?
>>63398779Singles for deckbuildingUMA for drafting or playing with friends
Who here /monored/?
>>63398510conch horn, credit voucher, hidden retreat, leashling, penance
>>63398872I have 4 (four) monored decks. How many do you have?
>>63398872B O S HOSH
I remember thinking this card would become a white staple. Does anyone play with it? How much work does it tend to put in?
>>63399276It's pretty amazing but I think everyone is too lazy to build mana bases around it.
>>63399276It pull an incredible amount of work, sadly its a real mess to include it if you play more than 1 color due to the need of colorless.
>>63399276It's really fucking good and yet another thing that can make infinite Mana with palinchron.That being said making a manabase that can use it in more than one color and still being able to hit devotion is hard, and doing it the easy way means you are in monowhite.If this card was blue everyone would be calling for a ban and calling it a more absurd dead eye, the mana requirements actually balance it out.
What's your favorite wincon that isn't going wide/tall?
>>63399562Take infinite turns with the worst extra turn card
>>63391335>incarnation, which is pretty uniqueIt's part of a cycle. Rest of the analysis is really neat, though.
>>63399562Nothing makes me happier than floating a bunch of mana, casting apocalypse and then flashing back army of the damned or recoup+empty the pits from my graveyard.
>>63400213How did you get that early? At least it wasn't a box topper..
>>63400237They're in blister packs at my walmart, I was there as the vendor was putting them out
>>63400213It's not a box topper, nobody caresFriendly reminder that that's what people care about, phyrexian tower is in the set but not available as a box topper for instance, same with back to basics. They could have chosen a few better cards to ensure the toppers were never duds, they just didn't, even though those cards were in the set already
>>63400213ITS NOT LOOKING GOOD BOYS
>>63400322Ah fuck it the last one was a phyrexian altar which is deece but doesnt make up for the duds. Why do I never learn my lesson with the booster pack lottery
>>63400419You pay for the thrill man, just like gambling. If it makes you feel better, I think these packs have a better EV than most casino games.
>>63399620How does that work? I would guess with Rings of Brighthearth, since Stifle doesn't work.
Rate this UMA box?box topper: SnapcasterLilianaEmrakulCavern of Soulsfoil Mikaeusfoil Fauna Shamanfoil Lavaclaw Reaches (fuck)Noble HierarchEngineered ExplosivesTemporal ManipulationCelestial ColonnadeReanimateUrborgContainment PriestMaelstrom Pulsesome other shit
>>63400683rings of brighthearth, along with Patron of the Moon and Oboro Breezecaller
>>63398042I think it only should be banned if it becomes super common. Given the rarity of the card, it's balanced.
>People who bought UMA are pulling fuckallColor me surprised I have no pity for your stupid ass
>>63400768>boxtopper Snapcaster>Liliana>Foil Noble HeirarchExtremely good just from that
>>63401115What are you basing that on? Every box opening video I've seen has gotten more value than what they paid for the box.
Not my list but what do you guys think about this deck? One of the guys at my casual kitchen table EDH group runs a lot of discard and another goes wide with fliers. I feel like this can handle bothhttps://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/red-rain-olivia-40-budget-vampires/
>>63400322>>63400213>when you make a gamble sometimes you loseMIND. BLOWN.
>>63401243>actually watching people unbox shitFor what reason?>I've seen has gotten more value than what they paid for the box.Just because <insert card selling site here> says it's worth that much doesn't mean it is. Besides the original masters set you don't pull jack that's worth anything or you may pull 1 or 2 cards that still net only 1/3 what you paid.
>>63396267desu im not the biggest fan of swanland. his wurmcoil engine is great but that the only one for me. his art is very recognizable though.i prefer vincent proce, maybe its just my kaladesh bias though
What the hell is a hellion exactly? How is it not just a wurm? And how do you pronounce it? I've heard it hell-yun and hee-li-yun (like helium)
>>63402087i pronounce it eli-one
>>63399276you wanna know some broken shit with it? That and containment priest, turn 3 you can start exiling any creatures your opponents have out for 3 mana
>>63402087Wurms have legs Hellions don't
>>63402087How do you pronounce Ihsan in Ihsan's Shade?
>>63400253>paying for thoseI'd just steal them. Fuck places like Walmart.
>>63402549Stealing them makes the managers take away hours from people to avoid getting punished for docking their wages
>>63402329I always said eye-zun as a kid.
>>63402549Have fun getting caught because of the security tags inside the packs and then getting arrested for shoplifting and getting banned from Walmart.
>>63402774Why are you spoiling the surprise
>>63402774I know someone who has been banned from walmart like 3 times and he still strolls in nearly every day and they've never enforced it
>>63398872Loud and proud bby
>>63402976Throwing this hot baby in my Grenzo list. Once Grenzo's on board I only need colorless mana anyway. Plus I run tons of shit like Avalanche Riders to destroy what few basics remain.
>>63398872My second favorite deck is mono-red but my first is simic so I feel like they cancel each other out.
>>63398872Daretti is my favorite deck and also my least played. How it works is it drains all the fun from my opponents and gives it to me so they won't let me play it because they're selfish little babies.
>>63398903>penance Fuck that's some spicy art
>>63398918>>63398872Based & Samepilled
>>63398872Tfw I have a meme mono colour deck for each colour except red cause I can't think of anything fun
>>63403195Red has a bunch of fun meme commanders. You have Feldon, Zada, Norin and Hidetsugu, and that's just off the top of my head.
>>63401865So you're basing that conclusion on jack shit. Got it.
>>63403195Monored has like half of the fun commanders in the format.What does monowhite have though?
>>63398872Who is the best monored commander?
>>63403318The white one is Brisela.
>>63402774>not taking them out of the packs before leaving the storeIt's like you've never stolen anything before.
>>63403320CEDH-wise Godo.In terms of style, probably Neheb.
So I'm looking at 75¢ mythics just because you know, they're 75¢ mythics, and I feel like this shit could be a potent finisher alongside dudes that redirect damage (mostly in Boros)?It wouldn't work for any of my decks but it just seems... possibly worth playing? Thoughts?
>>63403385I mean it doesn't even take a slot in your deck so it's pretty much an auto-include.
>>63403320i think etali have a lot of potential
>>63403385this one isnt even costing 75c, you have it for free everywhere
>>63403385that sure is a card, it'll be getting lot of looks when you slam that down
>>63403385Looks like a free include to me
>>63403385A real hidden gem
>>63403385Haha, I... tricked you guys! Into giving me lots of (You)s. Haha. Y-you go pranked.
>>63403385Looks pretty good. I'm going to have to pick some of those up
>>63403385>>63403535>I feel like this shit could be a potent finisher alongside dudes that redirect damage (mostly in Boros)?>mostly in BorosDid you read the card anon? You need to either have a ton of cards in hand to make it work, or at least a few high CMC ones - both things Boros is fucking terrible at.
>>63403535>ok I discard my hand and kill my Spitemare to dome you for 10
Ok then... how about this piece of shit that's 75¢ and maybe fits in some kind of groupslug shitdeck like Mogis?
Tomorrow I'm playing EDH at a new lgs. I hear things will be pretty cutthroat. My main deck is good to go, but assuming they aren't turbo faggots like me, which of the following should I build:>Rakdos group slug with painchantments>Neheb spellslinger with a bunch of copy spells>Simic land clones with 3 flavors of garruk, scapeshift, utopia sprawl, nature's claim, Azusa, I don't play green I don't really know>Every black deck ever
I just spent my day packing ultimate masters boxes for you nerds. We can’t ship any ultimates out until tomorrow.Always weird when some people order like 1 terramorphic expanse from ultimates and 100+ other singles and have to wait a week before we can ship them their package for a 25 cent prerelease card with the same art as always.Hope you guys that ordered the boxes pull cool shit
>>63403726It's alright in inalla. Can kill the whole table if people don't have enough blockers.
>>63403195Lathliss Dragons, nothing makes a statement like having people eaten alive by a swarm of dragons.
>>63403760Thanks anon, it's my first time ordering sealed product like this and I was curious, why can't it be shipped out today, since it would be impossible for it to reach it's destination in a couple of hours why can't it be sent out earlier than day of?
>>63402329ee-sonzone of my favorite cards by the way
>>63403744>every black deck everIs that black reanimator, black tokens/aristocrats, stax, discard, voltron, or combo?
>>63402774They're literally Steal Me Masters, what are you on about? Plus what moron dosnt open the product before leaving the store.
>>63403760was UMA a blast for you? Better sales than usual masters sets? regular sets?
>>63403726>got a foil one from drafting Ixalan>must be something, a foil mythic should be scarce enough to be cool$0.75 sounds right. Definitely not standard or modern playable.
>>63403726for equivalent cmc bulk mythic i would pick pic related instead
>>63404724why are people therewhen the etb triggers it'll hammer down some stuff and those guys will go kaput
>>63404752im not sure to understand your question buddy
>>63404779what are the tiny people doing on the gearhulk's hammer
>>63404752oh on the hammer you mean? i suppose they are the few targets each player decide to save
>>63404309Shame you can't really use him outside of lmao shade tribal. The flavor alone is through the roof
>>63404159Wizards of the Coast changed their policy earlier this year regarding new product that stores weren’t allowed to even ship it before release day. It makes no sense but that’s their policy and our store works pretty closely with them at times so we obey. Play by the rules or they stop sending product. It’s honestly made things annoying as hell logistically. We have to pack and ready all the orders with new cards on them seperately for the week before and store them wherever we can until the release day. Remember to always ask for a custom token in the customer comments too! Lots of online retailers send those out now and our artists love doing them
>>63404846can you answer my question pls fren >>63404575
>>63404575We’re selling a lot more of it than Masters 25 so far. This year Dominaria was definitely the biggest release with Guilds being pretty popular as well. I think we’ve seen a rather large increase in standard decks since Arena went into open beta so I expect Rivals of ravnica to be really huge.
>>63404914gotcha, was what i thought too.
>>63404575I’ll expand on it being a blast for your patience:Releases are always really busy but at the same time it’s fun to see the new cards. My favorite thing is when I get to open packs for a new release where I just sit down for hours opening boxes and boxes of new cards and sort them. We start by cracking the packs open and sorting them into commons, uncommons, rares, mythics, foils, basic lands, and tokens. After that we have another team that sorts them by title before they go to be graded (not all cards come out of the pack minty fresh).Ultimates isn’t a big release for us compared to a standard set release. We work about twice as hard for one of those i’d say.
>>63404423>coffers, contamination, gary, dread return, ad naus, necropotence, bob, Phyrexian Arena, bunch of tutors, various combo piecesEvery black deck is the same anon. Or bad.
>>63402774True, but there is a factor here that you're not getting with the people who are stealing cards. They are underage teenagers who have not yet received punishment for their Walmart antics. Once they hit 18 they'll be charged fully. >>63404459>>63402839>>63403356It's okay kids, you'll be old enough to browse 4chan soon.
>>63398872I need to make Big Guy of Keld in paper. It must be done!
>>63405190>my commander's gimmick is that it's an arbitrarily large 6-dropI fell asleep three times while typing this post.
>>63404109I do like dragons but Atarka's got me covered for a dragon EDH
>>63403760Do you work for TCGPlayer or something?
>>63405190Tell me about Maraxus, why does he wear the mask?
>>63405190>Maraxus of les Bains
>>63405050Good luck running Contamination in an Erebos list. Also Ad Naus and Bob are shit for a casual EDH deck, and vice versa for Arena. Dread Return is generally bad if you aren't flashbacking it for Labman or some shit, and Animate Dead is much more of a universal staple if you wanted to mention one.Black EDH decks inevitably seem more goodstuffy since the color is pretty strict on what it can and cannot do, and you usually run three or so other legends with a similar theme in the same list. But you can't pretend that Gisa, Gonti, Kokusho and Macar will play the same, no way.>bunch of tutors, various combo piecesSo like every deck ever.
>>63399276Shits clownshoes, I almost won a game alone with it and sneak attack
>>63405795>bonker in modern>bonker in legacy>bonker in edhIs displacer the ultimate creature?
>>63405847It's not cedh viable
>>63405847Few months ago i made an exhaustive post listing all the interactions and combos with displacer. Its way too long for me to do it again but the tldr is :card is broken as all fuck.
>>63404805Its probably artificial and won't move autonomously.
>>63405907of course it is, what is not viable in cedh is a general in which this card could fit in and a mana base who could generate colorless mana without struggling casting spells in a low cmc format.
>>63399276>abuse ETB triggers multiple times per turnYeah it's pretty good, but like >>63399403 said, it's not blue so smooth brains think it's bad.
Im kind of new, so please correct me when I say this, but why do people value the moxen so highly? They seem overrated to me. It's like you get an extra land drop. So what? It stops mattering after turn 6 or 8.
>>63407190Because in the formats moxes are played in, the game is over my turn 3 at the latest.
