Seeing how Griselbrand has been a huge addition to Heartless decks, Avacyn goes excellent in white decks. Just use a little accel.

White is pretty hard to accelerate, but I did finally remember C-boy had a Quicksilver Amulet in his collection (2 or 3 would be nice but one is better than none.) Then I looked in my old cards & came up with 4 Ruins of Trokair for a little extra mana boost when needed.

Re: Magic:The Gathering

Tonight my buddy and I tried out our first of the 2012 Planechase decks - Chaos Reigns. I really enjoy the Planechase variant...possibly due to the sheer volume of powerful rares in each pre-con.

In regard to the deck, I'd have to say this was my first experience using the Cascade mechanic, and it can get pretty sick pretty quickly. It's funny, I remember my friends and I bagging on the concept of preconstructed decks baqck like...oh, say, fourteen or fifteen years ago. Nowadays, however, we're having a lot of fun using the Planechase and Duel Decks in addition to using our own constructed decks.

WORST. PALADIN. EVER.

Overall Tourney Record: ....I don't even remember anymore!

Re: Magic:The Gathering

So, for those of you more experienced, can I get a few hints on my G/W Gigantomancer deck? We're running the same thing as last time, but we bumped it to a $25 limit. I guess my infect deck won a little too much, so I picked something a bit more unusual this time.

Anyway, on an unrelated note, my MTG group has decided to do a mini-event where we all have to build a deck that costs under $10, and it might end up being a recurring thing. I think I'm on the right track with a mono-black infect deck.

Here's the tentative decklist:

Creatures:
2x Hand of the Praetors
4x Ichor Rats
4x Plague Stinger
4x Flesh-Eater Imp
4x Septic Rats
3x Flensermite
3x Reaper of Sheoldred

Enchantments:
2x Crumbling Ashes
4x Fear

Spells:
4x Vampire's Bite
4x Virulent Wound

Land:
18x Swamp
4x Barren Moor


Any comments/suggestions? I almost got a few dark rituals into the cost limit, but I figured that in the end it was better to keep the Hand of the Praetors in.

As far as competition goes, I'm sure that one player's building a deck around Quest for Ula's Temple, and someone else is doing something involving wild pair and a bunch of big green 7/7 worms.
Have you considered Skeletal Grimace over Fear?

Griselbrand is excellent when you can cast him but Heartless Summoning will generally only use him as a 1 of. 8 CMC is pretty steep, Heartless or not.

Avacyn isn't seeing standard play until Elesh Norn rotates out.

Re: Magic:The Gathering

So any Magic players going to Gencon? I plan on brining my Cube and would like to get some drafts in while at Gencon. Id also be willing to trade some Heroscape for cards I need for the cube.

Peace is a lie, there is only passion. Through passion, I gain strength. Through strength, I gain power. Through power, I gain victory. Through victory, my chains are broken. The Force shall free me.

Dude, it's so easy to make your own cards for the cube. Ewok Esenwein and I have been doing so for a few weeks now. Even better, they'll all be foiled!

disclaimer: This isn't necessarily much cheaper in the long run, but we've had fun with it.

All you need are foiled cards, a high-quality printer and adhesive transparencies, acetone and a rag. ALWAYS DO IN A WELL-VENTILATED AREA.

The foils from Mirrodin work best, IMO. All you've got to do is soak some acetone into the rag, wring it out, and rub it into the face of the card - the image will come right off with a little scrubbing.

Then cut out your printed transparency and carefully apply it to the card. You really can't even notice a difference in the thickness of the card.

Instant foil! This surely isn't the cheapest way to fill out your entire cube, but it's a great way to get in some rarer (or even unattainable) cards. After all, who wouldn't want a playset of moxes or a Library of Alexandria in their cube?

WORST. PALADIN. EVER.

Re: Magic:The Gathering

Friend and I created/played a alternate rules format the otherday and had a blast

Deck Builder Variant:
Sealed deck: two packs (not looked at) + 3x (or2x) of each basic.
1 pile of each basic land and 5 piles of random cards.
Play as normal, but you can acquire/buy cards, at sorcery speed, from the pile for their casting costs, placing them in your hand or graveyard. When the game is over, you keep your decks with the gained cards. Exiled cards are permanently removed. Token/insert cards from the initial packs are played/searched for/count as lands but go to your graveyard (or are phased out) when played and replaced with a basic land from resource piles (permanently added to your deck). You cannot gain a land if you have already played a land this turn. (You can only gain lands to your graveyard.) (Nonbasic lands are gained for 1 + any additional costs.)

- We also like Campaign Magic (which is a Risk-style world map with each territory having a special modifier).

My Customs: Classic, RPG, Supers, Fiction, Space Hulk
Let's take your vision to pristine together.

Re: Magic:The Gathering

All of the Return to Ravnica cards have been spoiled.

Vraska, new Isperia, new Rakdos, and Corpsejack Menace are really cool IMO.

I'm really, really excited for the prerelease, but I still haven't decided what I'm playing yet. I'm probably going to do GWB Junk tokens in standard, but I might go back to BW when we get some Orzhov cards in Gatecrash.

Carnival Boy has a couple of Nicol Bolas M13 cards so we're going to go to the local sealed tournament to try to get some nice red-blue and/or red-black cards. Izzet seems to be the most popular already so I hope there are enough of those red-blue guild packs to go around...

Re: Magic:The Gathering

I've already got my decklist for after the rotation and am collecting cards. It's Jund. I've been testing it online and it's working. I'm going to 2 if not 3 prereleases next weekend, so much love to spread around. This is the best set we've gotten in a long, long time.
