I've enjoyed looking at the decklists in the Yugioh thread, but it's been a very long time since I've played that game. Can we have a thread where we post our MTG decklists? I don't need much or any context, just show me what you're playing right now.

I'm currently playing Standard B/U Aristocrats. Having a lot of fun with it on Friday nights: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/20-04-16-dimir-aristocrats/

I'm playing a modified version of the Rallying Cry intro deck with Hero of Goma Fada and Gideon, Ally of Zendikar at the helm. I'm waiting for my friend to give me the Captian's Claws he ordered for me so I can equip them to my Angelic Captian (gets a +1/+1 for every attacking ally, and CC gives a 1/1 Kor ally that comes in attacking) and the CC's also triggers other Ally abilities, so with that I can have a pretty good board presence.

I only play casual but I may take it to FNM since i'm mostly standard legal.

So if anything, just look for the Rallying Cry intro deck and that's basically what i'm running with a few different cards.

Rhys EDH: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/20-05-16-Cdf-rhys-edh/
I love tokens, so this deck kinda goes crazy with them. it's only way of winning is via combat, which normally isn't a problem since the deck can easily go wide and pump up creatures, but I like having a plan b. i also would like a sac outlet in case of board wipe effects. the deck recovers quickly, but it would be nice to have something to show for it. maybe i need another evolutionary leap. the deck also chugs along nicely without rhys.

Meren EDH: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/20-05-16-gra-meren/
I like this deck because it has different ways of winning. Combat, pinging from zulaport cutthroat, building a huge dude and sacking to jarad, etc. the deck needs meren to get going, but can survive without her.

I'm thinking of building a deck around the gitrog monster & playing it fair, just getting huge card advantage (without slowly dredging up the whole library and misery charming everyone over and over). but then what? plus, a lot of cards that take advantage of having lands in the graveyard are kind of expensive

As you can see, i'm not really competitive. i don't play modern or standard, just really draft & casual EDH.

I've loved nantuko husk ever since i won my first draft because of it back in the day. i really dig the aristocrats archetype.

My experience in card games is largely early Pokémon - made lots of decks and tested them several times per week. I had lots of YuGiOh cards but didn't get to play that as much, maybe once a month, my my deck creation skills for that are poor. I can still make cool usable decks out of my thousands of Pokémon cards. In Magic, I have little/no idea. I remember trying to make decks first playing Pokémon and loving to iterate on them and improve them based on multiple plays against real opponents. Play, tweak. Play, tweak. In Magic, I don't have that ability to play all the time against different opponents. If I could make any kind of deck, it would end up including Blue, for sure. Magic is too complicated, that's why it's not (more) popular. There doesn't need to be Sorcery, Enchantment, Artifact, etc. Just make all those one type. Instants, Creatures, Lands, and [somecategory] is all it needs.

I made a number of decks today, but only one I uploaded as a decklist. Haven't tried it out yet, but it can get pretty nasty for what I need it to do.


I also have a number of EDH decks that I adore and play frequently:

Also, to help people learn to play, I make mono-color theme decks to keep in a fat pack, along with an artifact deck. I switch the decks up every so often to show different playstyles with each color. If anyone's interested, I could write up the decklists for the current iterations.

but you must announce a spell before paying its costs.

try using Selvala after you announce that you're paying for panglacial wurm from the library. you know what's on the top of your library, but (probably) not anyone else's. if you don't get enough mana, you have to undo everything you can. that means you can undo other mana abilities (like untapping your lands), but you can't undo selvala because she moves cards around different zones, so everyone gets their card, selvala remains tapped and the mana she produces (if any) stays in your mana pool.

the pictured post completely ignores the the fact that shortcuts are allowed within the rules of the game. you don't have to formally pass priority you can cast a spell, announce another or move to the next phase and your opponent can say, "wait a minute, i want to respond". this is legal at all levels.

the token thing is wrong too. the rules don't define anything about what the physical representation of a token has to be. i understand that post is from at least 4 years ago though, so maybe that changed.

It's actually meant to do the exact opposite, lol.

It's talking how maintaining a perfect legal gamestate by the CR to the letter is absolutely beyond cumbersome; to the point of being unfun, however in practice rules from a technical sense are bent to broken near constantly. Therefore, if both players are both attempting to keep a legal and legible gamestate, this is acceptable. Otherwise the pace of the game is ground to a halt for what are essentially bureaucratic reasons

However, if an issue arises while in the game in the theoretically "flawed" way its played, the rules (and knowledgable judges) are there to fix any issues

The philosophy of the rules of Magic is one of the most fascinating aspects of it to me, it's what has kept my attention for so long.

A post later in the same thread which explains this with a few more examples

Also, to the token point (you bring up something interesting here)

Within the comprehensive rules, there is no definition for how a token should be marked on the battlefield, so in that sense you are correct. However, within the tournament rules:

A player must bring the following items to a tournament in order to participate:
• A physical, visible, and reliable method to maintain and record game information (tokens, score
counters, pen and paper, and so on).

What Toby was getting at more with the bit about a glass bead for marking a token and a judge could come crashing down on you for it (although however, shouldn't) is in regards to trying to keep the known information of the gamestate easily...known (without having someone to remember what it's marking and its characteristics)

Finding the specific tokens needed for a deck is also relatively inexpensive, additionally

They just want to be sure that what you are using as tokens could not be construed as some other game object, like a face down morph creature or counters on another permanent.

I'd say that's a fair point, but tokens being tapped or untapped for combat is an important (and easily forgettable, making it harder to backtrack the games for any investigations/backups) measure of the game, which is hard to illustrate or track without a rectangular token of some sort (token card or proxy of some sort)

If I'm playing a deck that makes large numbers of a specific type of token, I make sure I have two real token cards for the type in question. I use one to represent all that are tapped and one to represent all that are untapped and I use a d20 on each to show how many of each state I have.

BRW Self-mill deck based around Master the Way. My first attempt at building a deck with any real substance to it. It involves getting out cards that give me an unlimited hand size, then card drawing the fuck out of myself with Arcanis the Omnipotent and a combination of Trident of Thassa and Thopter Spy Network. Hopefully everything works out and I can drop a Master the Way with enough damage on it to instakill along with a contingency counter card in my massive hand in case things go awry. Recently I splashed white into it to give more combat ability with things like Righteous Authority and a fuckton of flying cards to sneak in the damage I need

cool. there isn't a lot of instant speed discard, so as long as you can protect yourself long enough to cast Master the Way, it should be pretty safe

saviors of kamigawa had a "hand size matters" theme, if you're looking for more ideas. pic related is a cool card, but way too slow unless you cheat it into play somehow.

Pro tips

>Play blue
>fill deck with nothing but mill cards (cards that makes your opponent put cards into their graveyard) and counters, pref ones that makes your opponent mill their cards, and land too
>lose every friend you play the game with, hope you don't get punched

But seriously, find a color your comfy with. Green is big motherfuckers and mana ramp, red is consntantly keeping the pressure on with instants and sorcerys that do damage, as well as creatures that either do things to make you do more damage, blue is well, like mentioned above, control, black is about withering your opponent down through life reduction cards, or weakening their cards, or the grave yard, and white is all about control as well, as well as lifegain.

Running mono isn't bad, but most colors synergize off each other, and like you said their is a wealth of knowledge online to find out what two go well.

since you have the duel decks, you don't have to worry about much since all the cards should in theory work off each other.

Also, use your head. See the cards you have at your disposal, and work with them. It's usually common sense, if i do X first, X will happen, and then I can do X.

I'm terrible at explaining, but just take it slow, try not to ingest too much, the duel deck should have came with a manual to help you get started.

Basically decide how you want to win, then build a deck that does what you want to do. Here are some ways to win:
>"Aggro" type: Attacking with efficiently costed aggressive creatures. You beat your opponent by outclassing their creatures at every stage of the game. You hope to win before they get to a point where they play creatures too big for you to handle. Play things like Figure of Destiny and Goblin Guide and cheap removal to clear the path (lightning bolt, path to exile)
>"White Weenie" type: Attacking with lots of small (possibly token) creatures. You beat your opponent by taking advantage of superior numbers. Play things like Brimaz and Hero of Bladehold
>"Beatdown" type: You win by going bigger than your opponent can. You must negate the prohibitive cost of large creatures by ramping your mana up or using other methods to "cheat" them out. You play things like Tooth and Nail, Eldrazi, and Worldspine Wurm.
>"Combo" type: You win by playing a specific set of cards that interact in a way that immediately wins the game. You can produce infinite mana, deal lethal damage in one blow, mill your opponent's entire deck in one shot. An example is Painter's Servant and Grindstone.
>Midrange/Control: You attack with basically any creature, usually an evasive one resistant to removal...while you use counterspells and removal to stop them from resisting. You'll use creatures like Aetherling supported with a suite of spells designed to prevent your opponent from interacting with you unfavorably (Remand, Doomblade)

The real fun of the game is taking one of these basic layouts and building a deck your own way. Once you start to get familiar with the scope of cards, you can start playing around and doing your own thing to build a deck that is uniquely your own.

My LGS is trying out a new commander format where the entire deck must cost $20 or less. I built a yasova dragonclaw deck that is focused on stealing creatures, attacking and sacrificing them (fling, goblin bombardment, etc) for my benefit. most of the time, i win with yasova commander damage.

i also built a kaseto voltron deck where i try to stall the board with snakes (a lot of them have death touch) and use kaseto's ability to pump him up and also make him unblockable.

the removal is a lot weaker in this format, so these commander damage type decks are more feasible. the hardest thing to cope with is that your mana base has to be really simple though.

the best way to get better is to play a lot. playing more helps you find your best playstyle too. maybe you are aren't good at white/blue or blue/black, but you might really "get" black/red decks, etc. i like drafting a lot because it gives me the chance to play with as many cards as possible and challenges me on card selection. it's tough for beginners, but it eventually clicks.

the "blessed" deck is pretty fun as is and teaches you about using white's flicker ability (momentary blink) to save creatures from kill spells (like human frailty) or abuse enter the battlefield triggers like cathedral sanctifier, which then boosts captain of the mists and champion of the parish.

cursed is kinda frustrating because it's like 60% zombie tribal deck, and 35% midrange and 5% delirium. It has a good shell for zombie tribal though. this deck should highlight using your graveyard as a resource and tribal interaction, so if you like the deck, consider looking up more zombie and graveyard matters types of cards to add in

Triple posting like a boss, but this guy is right. You want to get better, draft draft draft. You're basically forced to learn how cards interact in that environment, and you'll appreciate things you wouldn't normally run and see new value in them. FNM locally is everybody playing the same handful of decks they read about online, but we run a draft and it's a cakewalk because nobody knows how the cards actually interact outside of their comfort zone.

I hate to say it but grab a buddy and pick up prebuilt decks. Yeah they're not the greatest but they generally focus on a mechanic and playing against another sub-par prebuilt will ingrain that mechanic into you.

anything specific? it looks good enough. just play it a bit and you'll see what's lacking.

You can, but the combo relies heavily on drawing with Griseldaddy; on top of that, you've got the Gitaxian Probes and the occasional Thoughtseize. Basically, this is one of the few decks that really feels the pain from shocklands. It would still be playable, but at maybe... let's say 60% efficiency, to pull a number out of my ass lol. Honestly, I can't tell you how many times I've gone down to 1-2 life before winning, where a shockland would've meant seeing 7 fewer cards.

Fuck, looking back at that post, remembering how much fun Jeskai Prowess used to be in Modern... I'm still pissed off about the Git Probe ban. It didn't even do shit to Death's Shadow decks, they just evolved into an even more nasty beast, but that card was a linchpin in so many fun, 'tier 3' decks, all of which died with the ban. Like, Modern has become more open at the cost of most of the non-linear stuff being snuffed out; I doubt that Ad Nauseam will be around much longer.

I still love Tin Fins, but I think Paradoxical Storm is my new favorite deck.

Looking to get rid of the three 6 costs in my deck though.
If I did would I be able to remove some lands in order to place more low cost?
My highest costs would be 4 and there aren't very many of them in the deck

your goal appears to be to gain enough life to offset any damage from combat or burn and make ajani's pridemates huge and break through with them. i don't think your big 6 cost spells really help with that strategy, or there are cheaper replacements. 19 lands is a little lean, but you might be able to get away with it - it's worth testing.

Who else is loving the Anointed Procession decks in Standard? That's my shit right there. You haven't lived until you've stolen someone's Regal Caracal with The Scarab God while you have Procession out lol. Two 5/5s and 8 3/3s all with lifelink? Don't mind if I do.

There's no such thing.
My post was just sharing the "present" Wizards gave us on Christmas - the picture for the upcoming Dominaria set. I only replied to the Unstable guy because he bumped the thread on Christmas day without sharing said present.

Saw this deck on tapped out, played it in XMage, and it worked pretty well.

Anything that can be tuned before I start spending money?

It's hard to fuck up a scarab god deck. It looks fine. Don't worry about being "optimal". You'll go crazy. Also, don't overlook cards in your own collection if you think it's crazy to shell out $23 for a Liliana...

Yeah, I don't know why people spend so much money on commander decks. I use commander as a way to not let my weird cards from drafting go to waste. Although, I've played against people who had single lands that were worth about what this deck is going for.

Like, I opened up a Kumena at the Rivals prerelease. It's $20+. What am I going to do? Spend another $450 to fill out a modern merfolk deck? I should trade it in and draft for free next time, but then I'm going to feel stupid when it eventually hits $50... So it can either rot in my collection, or I can make a commander deck out of it. I have enough merfolk cards left over from Ixalan drafts to make it interesting.

But that's why I generally only really play pauper competitively. I've spent more on sleeves than on some of my decks...

Commander and Draft are the only things I play.

I had an Allies commander deck back when Return to Zendikar dropped and I payed 25 dollars for the Gideon from that set, which was the most i've ever (and probably will) spend on a card.

I also usually buy pre-mades and build around them. I don't have most of the cards in that deck above since a lot of them are from the innistrad set, before i started playing, and I don't buy them all at lump so it's gonna be an overtime thing.

I've been out of the loop since they announced Arena, because it seemed like it was going to replace MTGO and I didn't want to keep putting money into a depreciated format, but the new Brawl format has me intrigued. I want to build an Admiral Brass deck so bad.

I had such a sweet draft today with the new Dominaria set. I had a WB Deck with a bunch of removal, a few big threats and On Serra's Wings. That card can be nuts in the right situation. I even had a tragic poet to bring it (and the uncommon black sagas) back from the yard.

It's been over a decade since I last played Magic, but I recently got into the beta for MtG Arena. Still pretty limited set-wise, so I just went with my personal iconic theme: Artifacts. As many colourless lands and artifact creatures as I can shove in.

So far my favourite card is Howling Golem, the card draw really helps. Also I can't unhear the voice of Futurama's Nixon whenever I play it.

I understand.

I'm still raging for the one time I ran into a Mill deck before Domanaria came out in Arena.

I didn't even know it was possible to make a mill deck with the cards available from Kaladesh to Hour of Destruction but they sure as fuck did.

I've discovered the joy of a green shit-out-mana deck combined with Walking Ballista. Nothing quite like repeatedly pinging your opponent for their last few points before they say Uncle.
