MtG card recommendation by Nell Gorrymadging - Thu, 03 Dec 2015 03:31:25 EST ID:FKvqFRiI No.27825 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

I was wondering if someone can recommend a good'n'cheap black or colorless resurrect/return-creature artifact or enchantment to go with cards in pic related? It can be one of those restricted like with only being able to affect creatures with ➂ or less mana cost.

what's a good search tool that can not only show you all the creatures in a type, but can also let you search through (and in a combination of) certain mana costs, colors/artifacts in a series/set, ability, skill, and other keywords?

When you tap a land for mana, the mana sits in an imaginary place called your "mana pool" until you use it or it empties out at set times over the course of play.
That card puts an amount of black mana in your mana pool equal to the number of cards in your graveyard. It has nothing to do with swamps or lands at all. Swamps do, indeed, tap for black mana, but that is incidental and has no bearing on that card at all.

if you control 3 swamps and have 2 creatures in your graveyard, you can cast Song of the Damned to add BB to your mana pool. You could then tap your remaining two swamps to add another BB to your mana pool and use it to cast Squelching Leeches. The Leeches are a 3/3 because you control 3 swamps

Got it. I'm using 10 swamps with the rest being Piranha Marshes, Kabira Crossroads and Glimmerposts with Orzhov Basilicas to get some double duty out of the other non-swamps with the Basilicas' "return a land" cost (running some W/B-costin' stuff to trigger some W/B-used abilities with the Thiefs, Biles and Cutthroats).

when Beckon Apparition says "exile/remove target card from A graveyard" that pretty much means any graveyard, right??

Yes. Otherwise it would specify "your" or "an opponent's".

If you're running corrupt with so many non-swamps, you might want a urbog, tomb of yawgmoth. and if you have a tomb, you might as well get some cabal coffers too

anyway, what's with the crossroads & glimmerposts? do you have stuff that triggers from lifegain in this deck?

I only have 1 Corrupt (+ 3 Soul Burns & 3 Swallowing Plagues & a legendary Maga), but yeah, I'll probably switch out or add a few more swamps.

>do you have stuff that triggers from lifegain in this deck
Not really, just that most of what cards are in it either has take/gain lifepoint stuff going on so I figured might as well add life-gainin' mana since I got em, and the Basilicas & Crossroads are so I can have white mana not only for Benediction of Moons, but for cheap multi-colored Beckon Apparitions, Mourning Thrulls & Orzhov Guildmages which let me bring back Entropic Eidolons pretty much for free from my graveyard for casting a multi-colored spell.

I would think twice about gaining life for gaining life's sake (unless you have some infinite combo). You should focus on your win condition (getting your opponent's life total to zero), and gaining 1 or 2 life at the cost of your lands coming into play tapped severely hinders your ability to do that.

If you have cards that trigger abilities on lifegain though, that's another thing.

Could you guys recommend some free online board game/card game or similarly easy multiplayer games? I've been playing Dominion and Cards Against Humanity with some people but we're looking to branch out to some other games.

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.

I recently found out about a card game called Blue Moon Legends and it was described as a LCG with the expansions collected into one set. I was wondering if anyone knows of any more box sets of LCG's to avoid throwing cash into the money pits that they are.

pic related, it's Blue Moon because why not.

IDEAS OF HOW TO IRL TROLL MTG BUT NOT REALLY by Polly Cracklepidge - Wed, 07 Oct 2015 11:16:18 EST ID:XFo/8awV No.27765 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

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?

Even worse when they have some dumb drawn-out combo that takes forever, and they gleefully narrate each step.

It's always the ones with zits or neckbeards that do this. That's not prejudice, that's TRUTH.

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.
