    I would for sure put 2-3 Wrenn in the main, 2 is probably enough, we need like bigger planeswalker to finish in the lategame I think.

    Right now it seems like most people are running Bonecrusher Giant over Knight of Reliquary, Bonecrusher is a burn spell, is a 4/3 body, and if it is being targeted it can burn opponent down.

    Knight of Reliquary is strong but a lot of time it feels like it is kinda chunky and big, anything small can just block and ignores it.

    I run him in my R/G deck.

    Terastodon, Woodfall Primus, Dragonlord Atarka, lots of fun.

  • posted a message on $110 in store credit, what staples to get and any smaller yet big upgrades for my first non-precon build?
    Lol just saw in the beginning about Mana Crypt, now it is $200 on SCG...

    Paradox Engine is getting higher now, it is going to be a $40 card soon.

    I think I cut 2 CoCo vs Phoneix, that card is a bit slow against them.

    - 2 CoCo, - 2 Phantasmal Image (Gut Shot ew), - 1 Selfless Spirit.

    +2 Rest In Peace, +2 Thalia, +1 Dromoka's Command (Can fight TiTi, dodge bolt/anger).

    Yeah im probably going to GP Niagara Falls in a month, thinking if I should go with add 2 Grim Monolith in my main deck, and more wastes, I think mono red prison is going to be a painful matchup to deal with.

  • posted a message on What Card Do You Wish You Owned for a Deck?
    Judge Gaea's Cradle.

    I bought it for $250 USD at a GP 6 years ago, then I trade away for Trop island, some expedition lands.

    Now it is 1.5k CAD, probably should never get rid of it.

    It is so powerful but I don't think it is 100% need for my deck tho.

  • posted a message on Magic is surprisingly cheap hobby
    It depends how far you take on the game, if you are a big collector that collects power, RL cards you will end up having 40-50k spending on collections, investment, or perhaps even more.

    Some people only draft 1 time every friday FNM, so 1 month it is only $60.

    I mean at the end of the day there is still way more expensive hobbies out there... Like cars, vacation, golf club etc...

  • posted a message on Which creatures are the best at blocking?
    Silklash Spider.

    Strong vs high power flying creatures, very good vs Dragon/Angels deck which a lot of people run.

  • posted a message on Is zoo still viable in todays modern?
    I feel like the new Pelt Collecter Zoo deck might be able to carve itself a niche in the meta, but even then, it's competing with Hollow One, Scales Affinity, and Bridgevine in the aggro sweepstakes.


    Yeah this, and it is competing with Humans/Bant Spirit as well.

    I think the Pelt Collector Zoo is doing well in the Modern Challenges, so it is a viable deck.

    Like if you expect the metagame to be slow, non-interactive, the deck can be really good.

    The only thing can stop UW is probably Thoughtseize, then a SB choke, even that it is hard to stop them.

    Assassin's Trophy could improve the matchup tho.

    I would run 3-4 Trophies I guess.



    This is the post ravnica Wilted-Leaf I will be brewing, will see if it works well Smile

  • posted a message on Most toxic thing you done as a player
    During Innistrad block, played a draft at a local store, the guy opened a Snapcaster Mage, he said he want my Stromkirk Noble, I said ok, I can trade my Noble for your Snapcaster Mage.

    Then after that draft, he never goes to that LGS again...

    Feel so bad that later on when trading I never want to do this kid of trade again.

  • posted a message on Arcades, the Strategist let's brew
    My strategy would be playing bunch of walls, then use some cheap protection spell, counterspell to protect them.

    Was at game 3 of a small Modern GP side event, if I went 3-0 split I can a box.

    Then during game 3 were was a rule, I yelled at the Judge I don't know the rule, Judge almost gave me a game lost, but in the end I recoverd and won the game 3 to win a box, If I get that game lost I would only get like 15 packs.

    I wasn't salty to the opponent tho.

  • posted a message on [Primer] G/W Auras (Bogle)
    I really expecting most U/W players will SB Settle the Wreckage, how do you play around that card? Try to save a Bogle in your hand?

    Played a Tourney recently:

    Round 1 vs Abzan Company:

    Game 1 - I Kept a hand with Bogle, 4 enchantment, 1 Leyline, 1 land on the play, then I never draw a land for 5 turns, he eventually found a Infinite Walking Balista and I lost. It was really close, got him to 2 life
    Game 2 - Got him to 2 life but he found the combo so yeah... I sided in Gaddock Teeg to stop his Company and Chord but he didn't used them to win.

    I should side in 2 more path and put a Cage in my sideboard, (btw is Teeg very effective in this matchup?)_

    Round 2 vs Jund

    Game 1 - I don't have Leyline, he on the play, I keep a hand with 2 land 1 Bogle, 4 Enchantmnt, he discarded by Bogle, I didn't draw another creature, and it is too slow for me.
    Game 2 - Won due to my huge bogle.
    Game 3 - Very close game, he tried to Liliana sac my Bogle, but I respond with fetch to get Dryad, then next turn he didn't have another Liliana and I won. (Almost 0-2 :/)

    Round 3 vs Grixis Control

    Game 1 - He don't have any anwser for a big bogle.
    Game 2 - He have EE, cleared my field, then drop down a Tasigur, I have another bogle in hand, there was 2 Gryff's Boon in my graveyard to enhant back to my Bogle, then a Daybreak he don't have counter for it.

    Round 3 vs Jund

    Game 1 - beat down with a big Bogle
    Game 2 - He discard my Bogle, killed my Spirit Dancer, Dark Confidant always draw him more card without losing life. Then I top deck like 5 lands >.<
    Game 3 - Got him down to 2 life, I have a big bogle without other creature and no Leyline, his only out was to hardcast BBE into a Liliana of the Veil, then his BBE cascade hit bolt... next 2 card was Liliana.

    Went from 0-1 to 3-1 ... was a long grind, still new to the deck, have to practice how to mulligan well I guess.
