    (Not that I can really help given my lack of actual experience of anything, but I have to ask the obvious question here: What is current decklist again, @BIG BAD MOG?)

    Oh, right. I almost forgot to post this since I didn't post again last night. In my eternal boredom and excuse to not do anything productive, last night I decided to manually go through the Commons of Eternal Masters and see if I could find the cards among them that were made newly Common and thus are now technically Pauper upon its release. To my surprise, there were quite a few more than I initially thought there were and Black has by far the least newest Pauper legal Commons. The latter perhaps shouldn't be so surprising since WotC is clearly paying attention to Pauper nowadays, as seen with them banning Cloud of Faeries at the start of the year, and Mono Black Control/Devotion is arguably the strongest deck in Pauper now that Mono Blue Delver got nerfed, so them not really giving Black much more than it already has doesn't exactly leave the color bereft of anything:

    I also feel quite stupid for a) thinking that Elite Vanguard and Desperate Ravings were already at Common and b) somehow leaving Faithless Looting off of the aggro Rakdos Vampire list that I'd theoretically play for Pauper starting out despite knowing that card is Common:
    MAD VAMPIRIC FURY
    4 Lightning Bolt
    3 Vampiric Fury
    3 Fiery Temper
    3 Alms of the Vein
    3 Tormenting Voice [previously 4]
    4 Faithless Looting [previously 3 Voldaren Duelist]

    3 Guul Draz Vampire
    4 Insolent Neonate
    4 Vampire Lacerator
    3 Blood Seeker
    3 Bloodcrazed Neonate
    3 Bloodmad Vampire
    3 Crossway Vampire

    11 Mountain
    6 Swamp

    Meh. It probably sucks anyway. I also feel rather stupid for taking years to realize that c) the head of Stingscourger's mace is a Man-o'-war, hence its ability:

    I expect the most successful version to be in Mono-Blue Tron, possibly a small splash for Pulse of Murasa. Lets you do all the card filtering with Tron-Mana instead of the clunky familiars.

    Ugh. I mentally vomited a bit upon reading this yesterday. Good call though.

    It already seemed "busted" in Pauper in just Mono Blue Delver potentially, but it seems even worse in Blue-Whatever Tron, so I don't see it staying legal in Pauper for very long. Then again, apparently Krosan Restorer is still legal in Pauper and yet no one is using that despite the fact that its level of power is clearly very high (also in Tron) or the fact that it has a very easy infinite combo with Freed from the Real, so who knows; the same goes for the Midnight Guard-Presence of Gond combo being Pauper-legal and yet still unused.

    I'd chuckle if it was Cloud of Faeries being so inexpensive to cast plus being a Faerie for Spellstutter Sprite to count when it came to into counter things that pushed Cloud of Faeries over the edge in Pauper rather than "just" the "free" aspect of it. If that's the case, then Peregrine Drake costing 5 CMC rather than 2 CMC may "save" it...even if at least four of those lands could turn out to be Tron lands. Whee.

    How would you feel if you played Modern with all of the supplemental product printed after 8th. Sure some things would have to be banned, but there would be a crazy amount of cards added to the format. Mind you, this means eternal masters and Conspiracy are legal along with all of the EDH nonsense.

    Why not legalize Eternal Masters in Type 2
  • NeoBloodNeoBlood kara bank account Joined: Posts: 2,815 ✭✭✭✭✭ OG
    Not sure how viable this will be, but I've started working on a standard deck that uses the same strategy as G/B Seasons Past control but with blue counter spells instead of black control. It's basically just full of counters and some bounce, a few of which have awaken, along with lumbering falls. One copy (maybe 2) of Kozilek, and Tamiyo's Journal/Confirm Suspicions/Seasons Past for the combo.

    I'm tired of dealing with my local meta which is full of black control.

    I would love to. There are many sweet cards that fit right into modern.

    On a side note, I'm trying to find a deck for the standard wmcq. I'm torn between 2 variants of Eldrazi Ramp and 2 variants of Seasons Past

    If you haven't already been playing Seasons Past for the past couple of weeks go with Ramp. Season's Past is not a "pick-up-and-play" deck, while with Ramp you basically win for free against any midrange deck.

    It hasn't really changed much, but it's the esper faeries list I posted back with the inclusion of grafted wargear to flip Avacyn. I have removed them as the deck doesn't contain enough creatures to make it work without bitterblossom. At that point I might as well get something else to help me win.

    Well, I played SP quite a bit online, but not irl since I just got the cards. I am quite familiar with the deck, also I'm not sure how much experience you need. My problem with Ramp is that I haven't figured a list that I like, and it is too swingy. I like the most Justin Cohen's Duskwatch ramp list, and it performed well for me, but the total lack of interaction means you are in trouble against the comboish decks.

    On the other hand, my main concern with Seasons past is time - I fear of having too many draws. I'm not the fastest player, so...I think I will bring Seasons Past this weekend at fnm and see how I perform.

    Please please please practice Season's Past, goldfish it, etc. At the PPTQ I was judging at we had a Season's Past guy go to time every single match in the first fucking game. It's a gross deck if you're playing it poorly. You'll want to play as quickly as possible.

    Same could be said of Dhalsim and Guile.

    This is how ramp decks have always worked. You have a bunch of auto-wins and auto-losses.

    Hmm, last year Green Devotion was different. It was a solid, powerful deck, sure you had bad matches, but you weren't dead cold to anything. Eldrazi ramp on the other is, I don't know, much weaker.

    Green Devotion was a deck of compromise. It traded the ability to ramp consistently for the ability to play like a slightly bad midrange deck if it had to. You had to draw into Nykthos to really ramp, but you could play a normal game if you didn't draw it. That's not how Tron works because you can't be successful in Modern as a deck that's sorta ok at two things. You need to pick one thing and go all-in.

  • EmanuelbEmanuelb Joined: Posts: 3,273
    yeah, that's why my attempt to make a green devotion in Modern similar to standard failed. You either need to go full on combo, or go for a dedicated midrange deck

    I'd be really worried about the stuff with potential to slip through which could be a massive pain in the ass. I use a playset of True-Name Nemesis in Legacy and it's ridiculous

    My roommate JUST got me into Magic. I've had friends try and get me into it in the past and it just never really stuck. This time though... I think it has. She's pretty new to it as well. We've been using the Blessed or Cursed Duel Decks with me, mainly using the Cursed deck. Really like it, so far.

    Before you buy anything else or think about how to get into the game, check out Tolarian Community College on youtube. The guy does a really good job reviewing products and factoring in buyer type. Some things will be talked down about by competitive players but some are actually better geared towards new/returning players. Other products are universal like deck boxes and sleeves.

    I'm glad to hear that you guys are enjoying yourselves. Let me give you some tips:

    * Buying pre-built decks is worthwhile when you're just starting out
    * Buying boxes and packs is not worth it
    * Buying single cards is actually the more economical way to build decks
    * Magic the Gathering Online is a terrible program that is not worth getting into
    * Commander is the preferred format for casual players
    * Standard and Modern are the preferred formats for competitive players

    (It's somewhat sad, but that Pauper Vampires deck is probably just better off as straight-up mono-Red apparently.)

    It's weird that Black ends up getting cut out completely, but I hadn't realized just how many (still usable) Red vampires sit at Common, even if I would normally otherwise ignore something like Sanguinary Mage, at least in a Vampires deck.

    Is there a list of all the supplemental product printed after 8th? Off the top of my head, outside of what you mentioned, the only other things I can think of are the various Duel Decks, which seem to mostly be made up of cards that are already legal in Modern anyway.

    And so somebody stole our binders. Somebody who knew the our routine really well. Somebody who be have been close to us too.

    We usually go to Denny's after FNMs. During it they went into my best friend's truck and opened up the cabin without leaving a scratch. Opened up the rolling box where we keep them and took only the binders from the truck. Took the binders, put the box up and closed it.

    Unfortunately now camera facing the vehicle where he parked.

    Yup, just got the call about it. Wasn't even there.

    Its not gonna happen. Most likely it was somebody close to use who did it and they'd know how to get rid of that collection.

    Even more fun is that El Paso is a 12 hour drive from houston to Los Angeles. You can get to every major Texas city in 10 hours as well as other major cities from here like Phoenix or Las Vegas (12 too).

    I have good reason to suspect that it was some of the people in our circle. 14 years of stuff got GGPOed.

    Are you looking for a full-out combo deck, or a deck that has an already strong shell of cards that happens to have a combo integrated (like twin)? Because in that case, you might want to check out Abzan Toolbox.

    ya I was looking at kiki-tool box, I might have to play test the deck. I dont find making my own combo deck lazy, I just find it takes to much time, and I dont want to play test a deck I made for hours on end vs the other top tier 1 decks.

    I havent played in months and i still have back up decklists in my head, a chunk of them combos.

    This is 2016 not 1996. Kids can be lazy and just "netdeck". Why would they try to do something they don't know how or where to start? The real deck builders are OG's most of the time we know how to make a deck from scratch and shit. So its not a surprise people who can't do this effectively would not like to do it. It is tedious and boring and the payoff isn't what it was almost 2 decades ago. I had a obligation to myself to learn to make and test decks so the 2-3 digit DCI # guys didn't rape me week in week out. I mean there was always the inquest kinda *I need to buy some of these for nostalgia alone* for the longest time I would buy my Inquest and my Toy Wiz *see what toys were chase and shit* (I am a avid toy collector).

    And your analogy is why I didn't become a chef funny enough lol I love to experiment and cook but not for long periods and not a fan of repetition cooking.


    Though this month is a trial and test for me, I have mapped out like 10 tournaments to go to this month and shit as I have gotten majorly bored lately of Magic and I really don't know why, maybe less live play, maybe its repetition I am getting annoyed with by playing the same deck over and over, maybe the game is just at a odd juncture and nothing is shaking shit up, maybe I just enjoy fighting games more now as I have chosen to play SF5 over Magic and will be going to the live SF stuff here as well to see if that is just the new me. I have really only played Pauper post EMA testing which is fun but I don't know. Why not just sell out and take 5k+ and do something else with it?

    Well, who is going to force me to spend hours online play testing a deck? You cant force people to play the way you want. I only played MTG once a week, its not something I can play every single day like you guys.
