I just realize that probebly my wishful thinking is typing in above comment, because if other lists are green-heavy enough to run this, several of my decks will probably be relegated to casual 😉 (Jhoira doesn’t feel that good right now and Paradox Arcum already was on the bleachers but might not even be allowed into the stadium anymore)
Maybe for Brostorm or Gitrog? I mean, there aren’t that many lists so green-heavy that the alternate casting cost is reliable, or are there?
I wonder, if they do a cycle (as it looks like), what will the others be? The black one will be some creature removal, I guess – and that one could be super interesting, if it is, since many decks are heavy on black. Red some kind of direct damage, most probably, and I guess too small to matter in cEDH. But what will white be? Some kind of exile? Or just some free tokens?
Nice to get another shuffle effect for CVT. Adding another fetch when you only have 4 is kinda huge. Especially if you still run JtMS in your list.
Izzet Blitz got a ton more expensive, as we probably now need to play [[Manamorphose]] to get a relevant spell count for lethal. And yeah, the intel from Probe will be missed.
I think in the current state, at least Skred Delver is done for and Mono-U Delver got weakened a lot. Gush was an important card engine to refuel mid-game against more midrange-y decks like Boros. I understand why they did it, their reasoning is sound …
/u/bboomslang on My two favorite MtG women are Nahiri and Emrakul. What are all the Through the Breach targets I’m looking for?
I think you want some [[red elemental blast]] and/or [[pyroblast]] in here to push your Breach through and [[finale of promise]] can give you a second try. Otherwise it is to easy for others to hold up interaction to keep you in check.
Get him a Mana Crypt and/or Mox Opal instead, they are staples in cEDH – jtms is only played in some CVT configurable as Wincon, but even there an Ugin is more prevalent.
Paradox Arcum could be another choice, most of the deck is Jank anyway and you don‘t really need many expensive cards. Especially in a budget meta it holds up very well and due to its toolbox nature, it can adapt well enough if you play the same Pod re…
/u/bboomslang on Ebay and WoTC announce what compensation will be for those who had their orders canceled
well, that will turn out to 150-200 € framing at my local picture frame studio, so I am fine with that – I get a shiny token of my most-loved game on the walls, that’s kinda cool. If I actually do get one, that is – I only trust them when it is in my hands after the debacles lately … (and especially since I am a non-US customer)
Well, you need a way to produce token creatures – I forgot those. I was going along the lines of some [[Said, Master Thopterist]] decks there. Or efficient construction (although that is a bit expensive). Cast artifact creature, make thopter, sac Thopt…
Actually I don’t think so – the beauty of Paradox Arcum is the intertwining of the three key pieces, where the flute gets stuff to your hand to untap Arcum and Flute with Paradox out – but you only need very few Arcum Activations to assemble your infin…
Me neither, but I am also in the first wave with their listing fuckup, so I still have chances on getting product, maybe.
Did you get any response on that? Am in the same boat, only habe the Paypal refund on the product, but not on the import fee and so far don‘t have any mail from eBay.
Yeah, they are reposting all the failed orders again and again – might take them all night to finally sell all with such stability 😉
Well, if you are outside US, that what you have to live with. Taxes and stuff add up. Not too happy about it myself, but hey, the price of bling …
Yeah, just on a whim checked and was there at the right time and this time payment stuck. Wheeeeee.
Bruahaha – they resisted. Just checked on a whim and got a new order through. This time via PayPal and payment shows up in my paypal history. So knock on Wood that it sticks this Time.
And nope, now it is listed as canceled order. Hasbro as incompetent as ever.
Aargh. Was fine a few minutes ago. Suckers.
Was lucky and got mine through. Still shows as buy on my eBay page, so hopefully I actually get some cardboard crack …
I went to the eBay page of the toy store, went. To items for sale there. The gateway is just for the advertising crap on their store, go to the eBay.com pages directly, they hold up just fine. I was pre-logged-in, so only had to enter cc data. Whew. Lu…
Bummer indeed. I got lucky and mine went through.
Nope, it won‘t. Never believe strangers on the internet 😉
Over 40 creatures and low on instant speed interaction, as I play an all permanents list. This and emergence zone are two more ways to easily give flash to creatures, so it enables more interactive play for me without being a dead card like Vedalken Or…
Probably because there are tons of cards you could say the same about and the banlist would not be manageable …
Tibalt has no friends.
Play it. With a straight face. If they are scared that you have it, that’s the second best thing to actually having it. Control is as much stalling and bluffing as it is actually countering stuff. You only care about really important stuff anyway. And hey, remember: there is no threat without at least some action, so every now and then, even if it might not be the very best target, still counter something. Just because. Keep them on the edge.
You only live for the puppy eyes asking you for approval.
We still could run [[Balefire Liege]] at 5 CMC as another resilient wincon that reacts to on-cast and not etb (so isn’t switched off as easy as the Sparkcaster). But 5 CMC makes AN even worse.
I personally will probably go for Niv, if only because it’s Niv. Love that dude. And dragons are awesome anyway. Gives me a big splashy commander in cEDH, not one of those punly little humanoids that usually show up 😉
