Last week I've been playng some more serious matches with Sultai. Amongst them where BR Hollow One, Jund and Mardu Pyromancer. The deck feels strong and has game vs most. Like said before, some tech v.s. go wide strategies might be usefull.
And there, out of nowhere, a dark horse emerges. This reasonably costed, traversable creature will hose mardu's and spirit tokens.
So far the new core set is shaping up to be good for my decks.
Jun 19, 2018The card can cut some eldrazi deck off of colorless mana, which can be backbreaking. Eldrazi&Taxss comes to mind.Posted in: Modern
The card will be added to my bushwhacker sideboard and will help me in some of my toughest matches.
Another card i'm excited about is the black horse. It is the traversable anti token and maybe even bogle card i've been waiting for!
So far i'm liking the looks of this set for modern.
Jun 19, 2018Posted in: The Rumor MillQuote from smashkicker »this card is painfully narrow. It doesn't even work against fetch lands it just makes them better and saves your opponent the trouble of payinga life and sacrificing it.
What if the lifeloss was needed? (deaths shadow)
Quote from Mox Ryan »Would it be THAT op if the land produced only colorless? Or if there was a Draw a card attached?
What if you could cut a deck from colorless this way? (Eldrazi & Taxes and various other eldrazi decks)
It becomes problematic when facing eldrazitron. This deck can function on temples alone or tron.

With that out of the way..
Are you a completely new player? Do you need to establish (or just beef up) your stock of 'basic' cards like Lightning Bolt, Llanowar Elves and stuff like that? If 'yes', then sure, I'd pick up some. At that point, you're not really cracking packs for value--you're just cracking for deckbuilding stock. And Core sets are *GREAT* for that purpose.
Or, rre you are an established player? If you are an established player, I don't care WHAT they print at Mythic or Rare. It just doesn't matter at all. You will never break even buying packs. Listen to me very carefully here: N.E.V.E.R. It always makes more sense to just buy the singles you need. Yes, even the stupid 'Buy-a-box' promo. You will spend way less. Believe me.
Buying packs is ALWAYS a good idea when you're starting out and NEVER an good idea once you have your basic staples covered.
That's about as simple (and honest) a breakdown as you'll see. I've been playing for 18 years and it's been true for me for well over a decade now. Take it to the bank.
Pretty good summary.
I'd like to add that as an "established player" I only every crack packs when i sit down to play draft or sealed with friends in a casual environment. We draft every set, and only thereafter i can reasonably judge the set and have a feeling of what is possible with the cards within. The only sets i've skipped on have been Iconis Masters and Masters 25, where i was very very sure i didn't want to spend a dime on the box and indeed only buy some singles right after release.
Jun 19, 2018Awesome card. This goes straight into the sideboard of my Bushwhacker Zoo deck as a piece to bring in against Tron, Affinity, Deaths Shadow, Storm, GBx, Eldrazi, D&T, Scapeshift and Various control lists. It can be the piece of hate i need without the severe tempo loss of opther 2 and 3 cmc spells which the deck would otherwise suffer from in terms of speed. Now i need to find a foil version.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Jun 18, 2018Now this is a card i like very much. Slides right in the curve of one of my very first modern homebrews. Great card.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
This card could fit in aswell!
Jun 18, 2018Well,Posted in: Midrange
Let's start by saying that it's great to see BUG back in the mtgtop8 lists. it has been a while.
I ran a grindy traverse build with a few main and sideboard bullets which could potentially be game over and this deck got stronger as long as games went on. As of late, i'm trying a leaner and a little faster version of that deck. Credits to Saintdoom on reddit.
In its current form, I run this deck. Some compromises have been made due to not owning the right cards (yet)
I'm not decided on what i like best, need some more games with this list to make up my mind. I Need to learn to evaluate my opening hand in another way a traditional GBx build would. Since traverse and bauble are used to influence the lands at you disposal from T1, one land hands have proven to be keepable, something I would never do with another deck. Not even bushwhacker zoo, to name one of my decks that can function on as little as one land if really neccesary.
The general idea is to focus more on early disruption and threats. Using Snapcaster Mage to flashback a turn 1 hand disruption or removal spell after putting down a threat on T2, functionally acting as an attacking and blocking LotV, sort of.
Jun 16, 2018Been playing some games with a more leaner version of the delirium deck by saintdoom on redit, only to discover the amazing synergy of Grim Flayer and Nissa, Steward of Elements.Posted in: Midrange
Wanted to play with this card in modern for a while and i must say it's pretty sweet.
Obviously, she goes well with Bob too, but the other way around
Great card and a worthwile adition to the deck.
Jun 16, 2018SmauG posted a message on Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire and Lathliss, Dragon QueenJust like the new bolas both, but especially Vaevictis, should have had Haste. Lovely designs though.Posted in: The Rumor Mill
Jun 16, 2018I guess he competes with Elspeth. But i think he has uses vs removal heavy decks like Grixis and GBx.Posted in: Aggro & Tempo
I'm running Rallier and the recursion is very strong in those matches. Ajani can double up on this while also growing your beasts when needed. The ultimate is doors shut vs grounded decks.
