    Because of this I only send out cards if I'm at least getting double, usually triple the value of postage. So I just sent out a bunch of bulk rare's about 20 cents each internationally, so I spent 2 on shipping, but I am pulling in about 500 points from it, so the net is essentially $3 worth of cards. And even this is less return than usual, I just jumped at the opportunity to send out so many junk rares and commons to one person.

    So question before I get into this. I would love to turn a bunch of random EDH cards, and other cards sitting in my binder into a revised tundra. Most of the cards I have to put up are between 100 and 400ish, with some over 1000. Is it even worth it for me to do this? Or would I just be wasting my time and money (shipping money) on trying to convert this junk cards into something so pricy?

    Dredge can be pretty linear, and the games can be pretty polarizing.

    Miracles is very complex, and even after mastering the mechanics of the deck, it takes a lot to play it at a high level, and it can be pricey, depending on the build of course. That being said, it can certainly be something to grow into as a player, just be aware of the impending frustration and confusion as you learn to play the deck.

    Vs other fair decks? Punishing Jund for sure. Just a shame its combo match-up is horrendous.

  • posted a message on Is this fair? (Regarding friendship and initiating conversations)
    The thing with the relationships we have with others is that we really in the end only have control over what we do. We cant change the other people in our lives, no matter how important they are to us, or how deeply they may effect us. But what we can do is try to look at ourselves in a way that may help us to interact better with the people in our lives.

    This may come with the feeling of "if its not fair in the first place, then why do I need to put in the work?" Which you are absolutely right to feel. Many parts of life aren't fair, and in the end its less about the unfairness of it all, but what we do with these feelings of unfairness to try and improve ourselves. Relationships are not walls, they are mirrors, where they reflect both parts of the other person as well as ourselves. Maybe ask them for feedback on how you come off if you feel safe/close enough with someone to do that. Is it that they aren't initiating conversations, or is that they just miss the mark when they do? If you are seeing a psychotherapist, maybe ask them to help you explore your relationships with others, how you interact with them even, as the therapy room is yet another place where we interact with others. It often times may be that the ways we interact with others repeat over time, and becoming aware of these repeating patterns is often the first step to asking yourself if there are things you would like to change about your life.

    My hope is that you start to wonder more about these questions. Take this time of frustration as motivation to try to make changes. This process of trying to understand and see these things about ourselves can often be frightening and ego depleting, but extremely rewarding and freeing in the end.

    Elves isnt good? Elves can often win outright on turn 3 with just one elf in play at the beginning of turn. That isnt a good tribe?

    Ahhh I see what you mean (and I've seen that video many times, as a person who played a lot of legacy in baltimore myself).

    Yah I played the proxied Blue version vs a friend's shardless bug and the game was essentially over on like turn 4 due to loaming back wasteland and ghost quarter every turn.

    I guess this is pretty different from what its been like playing miracles for some time which feels as if even in the "easy" match-ups, I'm still trying pretty hard.

    And expensive in the sense that it doesnt carry over very well, all told on TCG for me to buy the version that Kurt played in the Bmore open is like 22000 for kinda beat cards, which is actually less that I think I've payed for miracles all told. Granted building miracles is a great starting point for so much more.

    thanks for all your help!

    What do you all enjoy about playing the deck so much that make you such dedicated pilots?

    You sir have not played enough lands. Lands is probably among the most polarizing decks in legacy and most people liken it to playing against storm or the like. its not cool after a while and there is some backlash for playing that deck over a long period of time.

    Honestly, I wouldn't do it. Getting rid of a chunk of good blue core cards for a grouping of cards that don't overlap much with anything else I think is a mistake. Its one thing if you could borrow the deck and play it in a couple big tournaments and play with it a while before making that choice. Loaming can be repetitive and wears on people.

    I think of this deck a lot like dredge. The people that love to dredge, dredge, and dredge some more and usually become stone cold masters with the deck and play it forever. Lands is a lot like that, a little more flexible.



    Cool, thanks for your insights and honesty with it. Maybe I just need a change of pace from miracles and can change it up into some kind of UW landstill build or w/e.

    Also, I think I have a good sense but could you be more specific with what you mean by "polarizing?"

    Yeah thats true, but I feel as if lands still has that "cool" factor too it, and you dont see it too often which doesn't make it nearly as bad.

    So here is the problem, I would essentially need to sell off all of miracles to get into lands, I wonder if there are any cards I could incorporate into it from miracles. Also, is lands a bad deck to have as your only legacy deck that you would bring to a LGS meta every week?

    No no, I do like miracles, I honestly just think as a "solid teir 1" deck I feel pressure to always perform well, and it makes it un fun at times, especially as at times I get the "ughh miracles" eye roll.

    How so is G/R different play style from the blue?

    Yah I've messed around with G/R a bunch and recently proxied up the list in your sig, really fun and powerful deck to play. I absolutely love the "toolbox" style feel of it.

    Also I assume there is no getting around having to play a tabernacle correct?

  • posted a message on [Primer]Lands
    so with all these versions of lands running around, is G/R basically dead? why does it seem that many of you are running the blue version, for intuition?

    I've been playing miracles and have thoughts of selling out to build lands, but I would only have enough for the G/R version.

    I'm assuming there isnt a way to incorporate any cards I already own from miracles into lands correct?

    what are the thoughts on which match-up is harder for us? Shardless BUG or DnT?
