  • posted a message on Best limited ratings app for mobile
    Hello
    what are the options for viewing limited card ratings on a phone?
    an app that shows you a card and its rating for draft, like 2.5 or 5.0. maybe with some filters like rarity or color
    which one is the best?
    preferably for android

    Manic Scribe is 1W 0/3 and mills 3-12 cards. He is better unless you want to run monoblue

    I'm still here to help out as needed, but given that I'm generally neck-deep in coding mtgnexus, I only handle things here when someone says they need help, etc. If there's ever something that seems like it's obviously just fallen through the cracks, reach out to me directly. I'll either handle it or prod the person who should.

    Edit: I should probably make that my sig now heh

    Thanks
    Looks like mtgsalvation has a problem postponing Pioneer forum creation for a week. How about promoting to admin a person who is actually devoting time to mtgs daily?

    The Mirage fetch lands would be great for pioneer. I do have one question though If they reprint or print anything for Pioneer would it also be legal in modern and other formats?
    There would be no fetch lands for pioneer. I'm 99% sure they will ban mirage fetches in pioneer when they release them in return to zendikar in a year.

    The Mirage fetch lands are about the same speed as evolving wilds are they not?
    Oh sorry I googled Mirage fetch lands and the first pic was with Onslaught fetch lands so I mixed them up with modern legal fetches. My comment was about regular modern fetches - Onslaught/Zendikar. I dont know about Mirage fetches, looks like Wizards dont like fetches much and would like to keep them at minimum to minimize shuffling effects in new formats.

    Where is Pioneer sub-forum? Why so long?

    Pioneer leagues came to Magic Online on Wednesday, with PTQ's in November

    "In just 48 hours Pioneer has had more user decks submitted to the site (up to 6,138 at last count) than Tiny Leaders, Frontier, Oathbreaker, Brawl, Historic have in their entire history (in some cases going back several years)."

    So not strictly modern relevent but new format (pioneer ) looks like this deck is a direct port, with the exception of strangleroot and vine (and with the most recent sets both have viable alternatives.) We also loosing village which hurts and hexdrinker but thats only just been added so easy come, easy go.

    Stompy in every format!!!
    Rancor, Vine, Strangleroot, Treetop. Dismember, Finks, Relic to a lower extent
    Probable replacements are Barkhide Troll, Kalonian Tusker, Blossoming Defense, Hashep Oasis, Memorial to Unity, Gingerbread Cabin, Rhonas's Last Stand, Kessig Prowler
    I think with losing so much trample Rhonas the Indomitable becomes more important.

    I dont think Witchbane Orb is a good call. It costs 4, they can already kill you if you are on draw. If you on the play you can easily stumble with mana to cast 4-drop on t4 and they again kill you.
    Beast Within perhaps closest to good side option vs Titanshift. It can kill a titan, destroy Prismatic Omen or destroy their 6th mountain to fizzle the combo
    But generally a card that gives them a 3/3 isnt very synergistic with our deck
    Tectonic Edge probably isnt worth a slot as it only slows them down by a turn and too slow vs Tron

    Id replace Sacred Foundry with Temple Garden, it still provides colors for your double color cards Cloudshredder Sliver, Unsettled Mariner and it provides green mana which is important to cast mana slivers.
    Second Plains is superfluous imo, Id replace it with other basic (Forest?), shockland, fetch, Unclaimed Territory or Mutavault
    Also I like 2 Relics as gravehate, they can cycle for 2 which is nice for some matchups (maybe you want to lower Vials count for grindy matchup or Chalices do nothing in some matchup)
    Good luck

  • posted a message on Don Krenko, Combo Goblins
    Hello
    I want to make a Krenko deck
    Looking at lists I was puzzled why people play Blasphemous Act
    Why would anyone play Wrath in a deck which wants to overwhelm opponents with creatures, half of the deck being creatures?

    Thks a lot for yours feedback both of you.
    Now I have a doubt. I do not know if I splash white or if I invest in the mono black with 2 or 3 lili to replace Davriel ...
    ( I do not have the W cards yet )

    List of the last night local meta :

    1 Amulet titan
    1 Bant eldrazi
    1 WB Pikula
    1 Spirit stoneblade
    1 Mono W eldrazi
    1 RG valakut
    1 Goblins
    1 10 rack
    1 Bant stoneblade
    1 Bant soulherder
    1 G tron
    1 U faeries
    2 Jeskai stoneblade
    1 UW Spirit
    1 Jund

    I made changes on the deck following your advice,
    It could be cool this way I must tray it on untapin.

    ty



    Here is my decklist if you want to take some ideas:

    Next Sunday there is a big competition in my local store. I will tell you how my 10-racks did it.
    Did you use Ghost Quarter before? Imo it's pretty weak in 8Rack, good vs Tron, but not worth it to run main because color requirements are high. Also I'm not a fan of Liliana's Triumph, imo it's win-more, I would prefer versatility of Funeral Charm or power of Wrench Mind

  • posted a message on Skred Red
    Perilous Myr is a joke. Its kinda 3/3 artifact defender for 2. Very narrow and not so powerful.

    I didnt play Arcum's Astrolabe but I like it. There was something missing playing Mind Stone on t2 and passing with mana but nothing to play with it. With Relic of Progenitus losing its value we can replace some with AA. Also we can add more utility lands and not worry about missing red mana. Thining a deck is also good. And pumping Skred

    New dragon Opportunistic Dragon can be nice for Dragon Skred, I never liked Thunderbreak Regent and Verix Bladewing was kinda slow

    Who do you think is better Dregscape Sliver or Unsettled Mariner?
    How is Gemstone Mine performing? Canopy lands? Ziggurat?
    Also could you accumulate more data before posting please. With 2-3 matches per post it will take a full page before we get to reliable statistics
