Sorry I haven't been able to post in a while
been busy with other things. I’ll try to keep up more though!
topher2323 asked: How do you feel about Misthollow Griffin, in particular? It may see play in Eternal Formats, simply so people don't have to 'waste' a card for alternate costs on cards like FoW
espacowilliswillis asked: Thank god it wans't just me that hated this set. AVR could have saved the Innistrad set but I think they completely wasted it
after a decent amount of thinking
lief: lordofillusions: I’m probably giving up on standard for a long while. Until rotation maybe. I just hate AVR and everything the set is doing. I like the people who keep posting this before the set even comes in, before any theorycrafting is done behind peoples standard decks or the actual power of the set is demonstrated. see you in a year and a half? I never said I was going to...

Caw-blade in modern
It’s happening. Especially because my store actually does modern events! And I’ve been surprised to find out that I would actually play zoo. Only countercat zoo of course, because I do not like playing decks without blue in them, but I would play that version of zoo. Just a random fact I guess.
Should I focus on Legacy, Modern, or Standard? I mean i’ll still acquire some standard stuff too, but it won’t be the main focus if I go with Modern or Legacy.

Legacy should be complete in around 2 weeks
That is satisfying.
Beginning to reacquire my stock of things for post...
back to 2 snappy’s and a Geist. Still have quite a ways to go. Also, trying to deduce what the metagame is going to be like post rotation is difficult. It seems like red is getting a TON of things to help (by a ton I mean 4 vexing devil, not saying it’s broken by any means, but it’s a good card.) but I’m hoping some more control stuff comes around.
espacowilliswillis asked: Thanks a lot! :D I already have a galvanic blast, but I need 3 more. Did you like the released cards so far? From avacyn restored, I mean
espacowilliswillis asked: Hi! So, I have an artifact creature deck. Since they have no color, I put lands from all colors, then put spells from all colors in a "balanced" way. It's kind of defensive, because many creatures are myrs (league, palladium, galvanizers, shimmer). the main force is the Myr Battleshpere, Darksteel Juggernaut and Hellkite Igniter. I try to slow down the opponent with Wall of...
Was awesome. But so very very difficult to pick what cards I actually needed and just wanted to play around with. Also got some trades in, some EDH, and tested esper some more. Very good day indeed.
FNM went pretty well for me tonight. My friend lent me esper planeswalkers, and I went 3-1, only losing to the mirror match. He resolved the Karn first. I really love the deck though, and I feel it’s got really good matchups against just about everything. My 2nd match was against a casual guy, so it didn’t last long, but round 3 was against zombies (sorin pulled his weight,...
Managed to get water all over the rest of frites, apparently my friend was only able to trade for a ratchet bomb and a curse of death’s hold at the PTQ, and I am officially deckless. This is not a good feeling, not by any means. I mean, I can borrow decks and all, but it feels wrong when I’m not playing with my own cards. I do not like it.
Pretty sweet FNM
Got second with Frites, tore it apart to fill up my binder and a buddy of mine is taking it to a ptq tomorrow to trade stuff for Esper superfriends. Should be good!
I need to do some serious trading for some Esper...
I need 3 liliana= 75$ 2 Gideon= 16$ 2 Sorin= Around 60$ 2 Snapcaster Mage= 50$ 3 Geist of Saint Traft= 60$ I don’t even want to get into the prices of the manabase but, here we go 1 Darkslick shores= 20$ 4 Seachrome coast= 72$ 4 Glacial Fortress= 24$ and 3 Isolated Chapel= 27$ To say I’m going to have to strip apart frites is an understatement. I’m going to have to...
topher2323 asked: Argh. So many nice things in your Binder.
Thinking of putting up a video of the contents of...
Anybody interested? And if you’d like I can do other video too, deck techs, talking about things in the magic world, testing decks on cockatrice, etc etc. Just let me know guys!
topher2323 asked: Makes sense. I just liked the idea of Dralnu never costing anything. Plus Havengul Lich works just as nicely with it. What's your wincon looking to be for it? For the list I threw together, it looked to be something along the lines of win with a stolen creature, or use Bubbling Muck and High Tide to super power an Exsanguinate. Also, if you don't have one already, try to get a Minamo,...
topher2323 asked: Nice looking list for Dralnu so far. Would you run a Rooftop Storm? I ended up throwing together some things to see how it would look. Also, a River Kelpie and Secrets of the Dead would be a nice addition.
topher2323 asked: I wouldnt mind knowing what you traded for for EDH. And Dralnu looks AMAZING as a general. Been so tempted myself to build around him, but ultimately not. At least for now.
darkmeanderings asked: Hey, you could always play vintage or casual with all the non-standard cards. There are some pretty awesome non-standard cards that make epic decks, for instance, I have a G/W circle of prot deck and It can be pretty scary late game as long as I'm playing at least two other people, though it functions well the rest of the time. Enjoy the old cards o3o
And I did absolutely horrible at FNM tonight. It’s what I get for deciding to play U/B control last minute over Frites.
I have a serious problem you guys
Rotation comes in september. And I’ve traded almost everything I had that would have lasted past rotation away for things that haven’t even been in standard for a long while. Hell I even traded earlier today for a Liliana of the Veil, and a Sword of Feast and Famine and then at the end of the day, I traded both of them away for older shit. Expensive shit, albeit, but still, not...

This…saddens me. The path is cool though, I guess
I'm addicted to trading
Mainly for EDH too. This has been my discovery of the day. Also, I built U/B control to test at this magic league thing my local store holds on tuesday, it’s free, but there are no prizes other than promos at the event. It is a sanctioned event though, and at the end of the month the players with the most points get prizes. I did not do well at all, but apparently I still was in the...
I feel like I should start posting round...
What do you guys think?

d20plus1: Just reprinting an important message: “To thieves: My name is Justin Parnell. I don’t think we’ve met. Well, actually, we probably have. That’s too bad I didn’t know who you were at the time. If I did, I doubt I would be writing you this letter. You took my blue and grey Vans backpack from me on Sunday, February 26th around 6:45 at Grand Prix Baltimore. You were able to grab it in...
sabotodd asked: Hey so I have a discard/illusion deck (mono blue btw) and I was wondering: Exactly how many illusion creatures should I have in it? And which ones are most notable? I have 3 aether figments, 2 bear illusions and some others as well.- Sabotodd
Placed 3rd at FNM playing Frites, first time I ever truly played the deck. It was damn fun.
To all you people who keep bitching about Brian...
People are bitching about that? I don’t see why. I think everyone should just be appreciative that we were able to witness one of the best games of magic ever between two of the best players of the game. It could have swung either way, but it was still an amazing match.
I think B/W tokens is looking like a pretty viable archetype again.
Was…sadly quite underwhelming. Lot’s of sweet commander tech though.
