The 'current' Ms. Marvel, her name is Kamala. She's one of the new characters that came out of the weird 'totally not a reboot' that Marvel is pulling. God I wish Bendis would just fucking drop dead already. Is that too 'mad' of me? The man's a real life freaking troll, he's like Danny DeVito's mutant twin except he has Donald Trump's likeability and people skill.

I'm actually surprised that's one of the first things about her that pops up, but yeah. She plays a fictional MMORPG, she nerds out hard about superheroes and she writes fanfiction.

So I had this idea right? Sorry if I'm making too many threads or whatever. I'm trying to get as many of my cards signed as possible. Obviously this might not get accomplished. It probably won't. But I have two Rebecca Guay cards (elvish pipers). She sells signatures at 20 for 50 bucks.

Would it piss people off on any level if I were to play eldrazi cards signed by rebecca guay? I just know she has a fanbase and an anti-fanbase and a lot of people nowadays are shut in opinionated types. I mean I only need the pipers signed. Would this cause any sort of reaction whatsoever or am I just stupidly high?

some people will just draw/sac/tap shit all willynilly and try to get away with cheating, or entirely misinterpret a card effect. Announcing helps catch/prevent it.
It's pretty annoying with friends with equal game/card knowledge, though.

It's a lot better than coming back to the game after 4 years and on turn 5 the dude just does some Monte Carlo shell game shit with 30 cards, taps all his lands, and says some nonsense like "merfolk wisplord, emblem, takki tutor, spectral essence. i win." then he gets all huffy when you actually want to see the cards played and read their effects instead of remembering the names, costs and effects of THOUSANDS of cards printed over 2 decades or just accepting on faith that he did everything right.

Im a fan of magic because over the years its grown, there are so many loopholes and kinks in the game that it really makes it exciting. Im talking about when someone uses the games mechanics to their advantage. So lets talk about some of our craziest decks/ideas and our favorite combos.

I have a landfall deck where I use Fastbond and Horn of Greed along with other LF effects so I can basically keep drawing cards off my deck, dropping lands, and ramping up my resources. But I added a piece where essentially I suicide mill myself and bring it back to my hand (Praetor's Counsel) and keep ramping till I can drop an omniscience out and play all those mill spells for free and make them drop their decks that turn using all those cards in my hand. The deck only works out really well about 50% of the time but I do love it when people ask my why im Traumatize-ing myself.

>tldr- drop land, draw, drop land, draw, throw down a ramp, rinse and repeat until I pull a trick that same turn

My personal favorite is Myr Retriever x2, Krark-clan Ironworks x1, and Brain Freeze x1. Found this combo myself, never looked online to see if it had been done before. Years ago I would be able to set it off on turn 3 at the fastest.

commander 2015 is coming out this weekend, so i was thinking up some combos with the new commanders. this guy puts +1/+1 counters on all your creatures whenever a creature gets sacrificed. as far as i know, this will combo with persist. you control both triggers when someone you control dies, put the +1/+1 trigger first, then the persist, persist resolves first, creature ETB with a -1/-1 counter, and then +1/+1 counter resolves and gets rid of the -1/-1.

anyway, this can cause all kinds of shenanigans in GB. i'm going to add puppeteer clique to the GB commander deck, the creature has persist and says "when this ETB, put target creature in an opponent's graveyard onto the battlefield under your control".

with these two guys in play along with any sac outlet, things get out of hand quickly as you can infinitely recur puppeteer clique and clear out all the other yards of creatures. just using pieces in the BG precon, sac all these creatures to Blood Bairn to get her infinitely big, then sac her to jarad to kill everyone all at once. you can grow your vulturous zombie infinitely, cast a ridiculously huge mycoloth (depending on how many creatures are in opponents' yards, mill infinitely with extractor demon, or clear out everyone else's creatures with butcher of malakir.

yeah, this is a weak combo since it relies on having a few creatures out (one of which could be your commander), but if you pick your spot right, you can kill everyone in one shot. at least blood bairn has a ton of redundancy (nantuko husk, vampire aristocrat, etc), and the other pieces can be tutored with tooth & nail or defense of the heart.

someone piloted this deck to 2 wins in the big legacy tournament over the weekend. if you're going full on coin flip gimmick, at least add in some copies of mirror gallery so you can get multiple thumbs out. having a 75% chance of winning a flip is a lot better than 50%, but it gets pretty ridiculous if you have 2 or 3 thumbs out.

So I just built two different decks just recently out of boredom. One was a June style deck that is built out of classic "Devour" and "...when this creature dies..." Cards. The headliner being two "Protean Hulks". However I recently stumbled upon two copies of "Heartless Summoning" that I had no idea I even had. So I the those in there just for laughs.
I then built a second deck that was an esper style deck using blue black and white. That was nothing but beat down artifacts, the main guys being "Myr Superion", "Lodestone Myr", and "Master of Etherium", two copies of each.

Sadly the "Heartless Summoning" was killing off all my creatures in the June color deck and had no real synergy in the deck. I really wanted to abuse the Heartless summoning so badly though, I thought I would have to build a new deck just for it. I immediately went to look up combos for the card.
I then laughed and felt so dumb when the most commonly answered combo for the card was "Myr Superion", I didn't even think of that crazy shit! I immediately made space for it in the esper deck and now it has become so crazy scary it is ridiculous. A 4/5 on turn 2 for 0? Fuck yes.

So I'm a brand new MTG player. I've played a lot of (and spent a lot on) Hearthstone. Thousands of games, hundreds of dollars, etc. I decided I wanted to try Magic, downloaded Magic Duels, had a lot of fun, and now want to get into paper Magic.

I went to my local game store, asked some questions and bought some cards. I grabbed the BFZ Duel Decks so I could try a few games vs a friend of mine that also plays HS. And I grabbed the black and green Event Deck plus some boosters just as a diving in point.

My current plan is to attend a casual night at the store with the black/green event deck. Hopefully get more comfortable with playing the game via the the physical medium. Once comfortable, I'll participate in the Friday night booster drafts in order to amass a base collection and some experience. And from there spring into standard constructed play.

Does that sound like a reasonable use of time / money? How hard is it to participate in the local Magic scene without knowing anyone? Any etiquette / tips? I've spent about $350 on constructed HS over about 4 months and wont be spending any more until a new expansion hits. Can I expect to have fun and be competitive in constructed MTG with a similar budget?

I'm doing my own homework in starting out, obviously, but I'd love to hear thoughts / advice from some 420bros.

Standard can be an expensive format to stay current in. This is a recent top 8 golgari deck which seems to be the same basic type of deck as the Green / Black BFZ event deck. What ends up being the bulk of the cost of a single deck is the multiples of format defining staples like Liliana and Hangarback Walker.

Also, I am too scared to get into the store-based Magic scene. Too intimidated by all the players. People scare me. I just want a couple close friends to play with.

if you want cards to play competitively, the best thing to do is buying singles. it'll be cheaper & faster that way. don't let that stop you from drafting though. it is fun & there are competitive draft tournaments.

the event deck is fun. i've loved the aristocrat archetype before it was even called that, ever since i won a big onslaught draft on the back of nantuko husk.

I used to hate going to FNM, because of all the net-decking and OP cards (relative to my own) since I wasn't willing to spend hundreds of dollars on a deck. That's the nature of standard though. Sealed formats are better for leveling the playing field, so draft is a good idea imo. In either case you'll learn a lot if you just stick with it.

Built a rwb edh and my buddies keep insisting on using shu yung but i think that narset, enlightened would be a better bet if i adjusted accordingly. What are your thoughts /tg/?
Martha Sappersot - Sun, 27 Sep 2015 12:44:46 EST ID:3DFjNg9H No.27746 Ignore Report Quick Reply
it really depends on how the cards you have can support your commander. narset, enlightened has hexproof though, so she is easier to protect than shu yun.

if you're going aggro and have a lot of cheap combat tricks, go with shu yun. i just like to have alternate win conditions in EDH in case your opponents lock you down somehow.

for this reason, narset's ability combined with blue's ability to manipulate the top of the deck is more relevant, especially because UWR lack any meaningful creature tutors.

With Narset, you can use cards like Descendant of Soramaro or Soothsaying before your untap phase to make sure you get quality for narset's ability. W can probably fetch up Soothsaying easily enough too. this will let you play multiple big effects when you attack.

Narset is better if your deck is built around prowess to get those triggers.

Instead of complaining, a great course of action is always coming up with, and greatest: executing, your own solution. Friday night has always been meaning/full for me, too, so I'm sure there is an entire untapped demographic for Not-Friday-Night-Magic players. Just start something! If you know anybody at all who likes Magic in any capacity, go with them to your local card store and arrange for your own weekly event. See which days the store has nothing going on, and then stick to a schedule, going with your friend(s) there every week at the same time. People might not even show up for a while - I just heard about and started going to a Pokémon weekly event at my local store, and apparently it's been going on for a month.
If people show up but mention they need another day/time, be flexible.

If you build it, they will come.

You know people do drafts on days OTHER THAN FRIDAY, right? Most places have a Saturday/Sunday morning draft.
So, sorry, it won't be called Friday Night Magic, but it will be an official DCI event with the draft format.

Also, you can set up your OWN draft. Just have everyone bring 5 boosters and a stash of lands. Everyone throws a booster into the prize pool, and then you guys draft from the remaining boosters. It's that simple, dude.

No employer would work him that much, because he would then qualify as full time, they'd have to provide him insurance and over-time, and he would be eligible for unemployment which is paid by the business you work for, not by your taxes.

Hey /tg/, I'm fairly new to the tabletop scene and have decided that rather than trying to go about looking for games to play, I'd start one of my own.

Specifically, I want to get into the World of Darkness games, and even moreso, the Hunter series.

Now, looking at White Wolf's wiki, it looks like there are two different series, the old and new Worlds of Darkness. Without trying to start a "old vs. new" thread (seeing as how it looks like these are two completely different settings), should I go for The Reckoning or The Vigil? The Reckoning is the oldest one and has a FUCKTON of books, but the Vigil is the more recent one with significantly less (like, a whole 5 companion guides to Reckoning's 20+). Is there much of a change in the mechanics of the games or was it just a change in setting?
