Quote from Life1ess »Am I alone in my concern that the 2016 commander decks are going to be a raging dumpster fire? The last few sets of decks have been easily playable and even somewhat competitive right out of the box. I can't imagine a budget 4 color manabase that isn't slow as dirt and inconsistent.
I'm sure there will be some exciting new cards but I'm not convinced the decks will work.
Quote from ISBPathfinder »I appologize if this is just kind of a pointless brag post (this is offtopic). For anyone who plays d&d 5th edition I found a really cool build I was playing last night. The party was lvl 13 and would lvl sometime last night. I ended up rolling a new character as I had been a bard / pally / cleric before and I was fairly good at healing with that build but it did nothing else. Instead last night I rolled up a Druid 12 (shapeshifter) Cleric 1 (life) last night and had some fun.
In the current campaign we are in we are generally fighting several rather difficult fights usually something like 3 hard fights + one encounter based event per day and we lvl at the end of it. We are progressing through the 9 layers of hell on a mission and each layer must be done in one day and we lvl at the end. We ended up getting to the end of the layer we had been in as we were close to the end of it when we picked up for the night. I then converted all of my spell slots into goodberries and ended up with something like 140 goodberries ranging from 4-10 health recovering each because of my life domain pickup.
In the next layer I use shapeshifting to tank and spank the first two fights more or less. I then fly around (am an avian race) for the third fight firing call lightning repeatedly on multi stacked units. I end up giving almost full rest recovers to a party of 7 3 times in a case where we had people close to or actually dropping in each fight.
TLDR: I had some fun min maxing a few things in D&D. Druids are kind of gross.

Try Facebook selling groups, but make sure you that you're selling below TCG Low and eBay BIN.
Quote from weezie13 »Any thoughts of if any vehicles or Kaladesh cards will make a splash in modern? Any of the Gearhulks or something like Smuggler's Copter? They're already spiked but wondering if they have staying power.... any opinions are appreciated!

I'm buying into Naya Nahiri Breach as we speak. Just bought a playset of promo for around 30.
Quote from ed06288 »I think you guys are overestimating counterfeits in general
Quote from Lakanna »And when prices come back down to a certain level, counterfeiting becomes less profitable, even unprofitable, and it stops. until the pressure builds up again.
Quote from Kedvesem »
But it is a moral question. Is counterfeiting morally wrong?
Anything else is beside the point.
Quote from Lakanna »
Edited in: I notice that you don't actually try to refute that it's true...
Quote from Lakanna »
The counterfeiting issue is a direct result of WotC trying to limit supply, either with no reprints, or reprints insufficient to meet demand.
Quote from JTMTG »I post this in Modern prices becasue my collection is 95% Modern based.
So I got my first real job recently Ive finished up Uni and Ive found I really don't have time or the interest to play MTGO anymore.
I have something like 1.3k USD worth of cards and im debating on cashing out or just leaving it all there for when I may want to play again.
I know I will play MTG again but these days its more likely to be IRL commander with friends for the social aspect.
I doubt I will play much this year or the next and about the only thing I can see that might bring me back in is MM2017 if it exists.
I don't "need" the money now but money is money I guess the question is are my MTGO cards going to appreciate more then whatever I use the money to buy. If I where to play sooner then I expected I should be in a position to just drop 1k on the game. So it might be demoralizing to learn that snapcaster and co have doubled but it wont be the end of the world.

Quote from Equinox2793 »
There is no universe in which Tamiyo stays at $30 dollars. No planeswalker (besides jace and Nahiri) is above $20 dollars. She is a 3 color planeswalker that needs to be in decks with lots of creatures. She will be $15ish or lower imho.
Quote from Tinfoil HatWhy no reckoner?
Quote from krichaiushiiI am a fan of Kaervek.
My version runs additional enchantments, particularly Last Laugh, Exquisite Blood, and Rain of Gore.
Ramp is common in my meta, so I have responded by adding Tunnel Ignus, Ankh of Mishra, Acidic Soil, and Zo-zu the Punisher.
Your targeted discard is vicious in a duel, but might be better as something else for multiplayer.
Oh, giving infect to Kaervek really irritates people.
I like Midnight Banshee and Grim Poppet alongside Kulrath Knight and will be stealling that idea.
Quote from germandrafterA very interesting read. Thx for sharing.
Quote from KamotzI really want to get a build like this going in Standard format. I think it could be insanely fun. Throwing out more and more Drakes. Unfortunately there's no Iscron Scepter in Standard, I don't think.
But for this build, why no Mana Leak? With Isochron Scepter it seems...so brokenly abuse-able.
