    I would like someone to help me make the.. I don't know what the word is.. format? of a few cards, for a short satire I am writing. Just need someone to basically photoshop them to look realistic, with the text, cc, name etc. that I come up with. Please PM me if interested. Thanks

    yeah...messed up on the CC, and I'm not saying it's a "default answer," but the fact that you can have a 4/4 that can kill off 1-3 creatures for 7 mana doesn't sound that bad.


    Well, I think other cards, even serrated arrows or bottle gnomes would be better answers because they come online much faster which is clearly important against aggro and gnome gains life. This card could find some use, but it doesn't seem particularly good for t2 at least.

    @ Dragonmaster: Triskelion saw play, didn't it? And that was 7 mana.


    Well, it is 6 mana, and it can be played off of workshop and I doubt it would be the default answer to weenie rush in any deck, because many mana-bases to not reach 7 until very late game and basically, I don't think that is a good comparison.

    Guess I did something wrong Slant Didn't have to go and delete my post though.

    Grim Poppet looks pretty sick, a great universal SB strategy against weenie rush strategies. Rhys is....meh, as usual.


    This is just me, but a 7 drop isn't all that great of a choice to combat weenie rush...

    Lol, I am surprised you figured that out, honestly. He butchered it pretty bad. Still smiling at this kid.

    Edit: Offalsnout is actually a lot bigger in Ext than Standard, because it absolutely WRECKS dredge for one B

    Hey, complete newb to the deck, just picked it up two days ago. Anyways, I find it an absolute blast to play and very very competitive against top archetypes. My question is about the sideboard. Not much discussion has been on here recently as to what a full sideboard should look like. I'm currently running a list I copied from someone who posted on here:




    (sorry about the lack of card tags, how does one do that for the entire decklist? or must you do each one by hand?)

    Anyways, I feel very iffy about the sideboard, I almost never sided anything except the crypt's and sower's in.. I've seen discussion of flashfreeze, Magus of the Disk, Moat and Tabernacle, what else is under consideration and for what matchups? Any general consensus?

    Not the funniest thing ever (also if a mod wants to put this in a spoiler for me since I don't know how to and I am on vicadin so I don't really have the energy to look it up currently that would be cool) but his reaction at the end just fascinates me.

    I think the whole mulliganning thing is retarded anyway. Does anyone ever really play with a hand of 5 or less? I'd rather just get up and walk away; it's a waste of time.


    Ever had a hand with 2 lands, Bob and anything else? Yup, that's a keeper for sure. I even won a game off 4 cards with rogues a few days ago. I absolutely HATE the people who just mulligan a ton and then leave or say g2? or draw 7. It is perfectly reasonable to get a bad hand and have to play with a few cards, ti is not impossible, and it is simply how it works...

    "I also knew my friend needed the win more than I did."

    Is anyone else bothered by Fridge's friend winning that game due to friendship, as opposed to skill?

    To me, this seems different only in degree from bringing an entourage of friends to a tournament with you, with the understanding that they will throw any matchup where they're paired with you.

    I contend that sanctioned players ought to be playing to win, not to play statistical games with the ranking system.


    I agree with this sentiment, the "misplay" with the slaughter pact, when he says he had the game won seems kind of dishonest and not something to really encourage on the website. If it was clear that he lost if he played the pact (the teachings was in the yard, so he could see it, he knew his opponent played bounce, his opponent had the mana to search and bounce) then he had nothing to gain by doing it.. Whether such playing is particularly ethical is questionable, something to think about I guess.

    If my opponent has a body double in play mimicking reveilark and I kill his body double, can it target itself with revilark's leave play ability?

    Can someone actually explain the details?

    I'm playing this version for week and I'm wondering if it is good enough to fight with other tier1 decks:

    single warhammer is enough imho, because every time I had it, I won

    and my sb: (still not ended)
    4 Thoughtseize
    3 Extirpate
    2 Pithing Needle
    4 Rune Snag (are they worth space there?)
    2 ???

    I'm playing this deck sth like 1 week and I don't know what I should have in SB and if my MD is good. What I can change to make it perfect?


    I know next to nothing about the deck, so I may be clueless, but if you win every time you get a hammer, why wouldn't you want 2-3 so you draw them more often?

    On the old Microprose MTG game, the computer would frequently cheat by blocking your creatures with protection as though they didn't have the ability. God forbid you try to do the same to it, though. It also did other stuff like using Verduran Enchantress to draw a card when using Lifelace, but that's neither here nor there...


    HOW DARE YOU DEFILE THE GREAT NAME OF SHANDALAR! Yes, it may have a few (aka: an almost unlimited amount) of bugs, but it is god's gift to man.
