  1. Hello all! Been taking some time off magic, but with rotation and and exciting new Standard environment I am back at it again, and because I am hard headed and I like trying to make sub-optimal things work I am in the process of building a UR control deck. Sure I could go Jeskai, Grixis, or even Esper of UB as they are all better alternatives, but that would include me not banging my head against the wall several times before I give up Here is the link to the deck list on Tappedout: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/ixalan-ur-control-1/ Let me know what you think, any feedback is appreciated.
  2. I just use my PS4 controller, but really any random ass PC controller will work for you unless you need macros/extra buttons but those controllers cost a dumb amount and are not worth it imo. Cheapest solution is just to get a Logitech controller like Wolphard mentioned. Even the wired Xbox is like $40+
  3. It really depends how you play EDH, what your group's play style is, and what deck you build. EDH is also a format that is heavy on politics. Most games with pre-con decks will be long and drawn out as not many can pull off wins out of nowhere and it takes time to set up; but on the polar opposite, if you build a legit "competitive" EDH deck you can easily pull off wins turn 4-6. EDH, in my opinion, is one of the most diverse formats. Yes games will last longer than modern or standard of course, but overall it is much more fun for a group of friends in my opinion. Experiment with different commanders, you will have a blast.
  4. Oh boy I remember these types of decks popping up everywhere when Boros Reckoner was first released. These decks are stupid fun to play, nice build
  5. My friends swear by Rotten Tomatoes, I absolutely hate it. The reviews are rarely on point.
  6. I have been feeling this way for some time now. Movies have been a real let down lately. They are either remakes, sequels, or just bad. Granted most summer movies tend to be horrible period, they are always way too campy, or tend to be a bunch of teenage movies and chick flicks.
  7. I actually picked up one along a few friends this past weekend. The one that I found to be the most common is the WIzard and Dragon decks. The Vampire deck is probably the hardest to find as Teferi's Protection has shot up to like 30$. In my area both Wallmart and Target have had plenty of them overall though.
  8. I thought I remembered Abzan being pretty powerful strategy in Frontier. I remember when Frontier was brought up that people were bitching about Siege Rhino and so on.
  9. I wish I had some fun and interesting way of doing it but I normally do it by colors, with lands coming in last. I typically do colorless, black, blue, red, white, green, multicolor, and lands
  10. The Wizard deck looks absurdly fun so far. Also, Mairsil has absurd potential as a commander.
  11. This one is my pride and joy That was the most fun deck I have played in Standard, wish I could be in that era forever Good points about using it to link to your youtube videos. I was starting to use MTGGoldfish, but TO is a little better imo.
  12. Maybe I should start using TappedOut again. Used to use it pretty heavily during when Khans block was Standard.
  13. WE LIVE! WE DIE! WE LIVE AGAIN!
  14. I 100% agree! I love playing Magic, it is by far my most favorite hobby. I love every aspect of it, and I love how it allows any player to basically play as they wish and enjoy the game for any number of reason. However, when I sleeve up a deck I just spent real hard earned money on, I want to win. When I go to FNM I want to aim for 4-0. I would have fun even if I would go 0-4, because you learn more from losing than you do from winning AND I am playing Magic with people I enjoy interacting with. Learning is a huge factor and part of the fun for me as well. "Woah, that's a combo that you can play? Let me note that down", "that's a sweet interaction, I never thought about that","damn I lost because XYZ, now I know how to improve my deck", so on and so forth; but at the end, I have much more fun if I win. Even when playing with friends I can see that people feel much more "accomplished" when they win. Just as a quick analogy, let's look at videogames. When you play with friends at home, at an arcade, online, or in any non-competitive scenario where you have nothing to gain or lose from either a win or a loss, which one do you prefer to see on your screen "YOU WIN" or "YOU LOSE"? "LEVEL COMPLETED" or "GAME OVER"? "HEIR OF FIRE DESTROYED" or "YOU DIED"? I am pretty sure for the majority, it's the screen that let's you know you did a good job, that you accomplished your goal, that you were the best among the competition and won. I feel this same concept translates to MTG as well. You can have a ton of fun and lose, but you would probably have more fun if you had won. This is even more true in scenarios where prizes are on the line and you payed some sort of entry fee, such as FNM and other tournaments. I enjoyed reading your post, very well thought out and written. Would really love to hear more from you in terms of issues, hot topics, or general talk in MTG.
