  1. This is the new Path to Exile; cheap effective removal that keeps Modern in check and helps keep black a great color to play in non-rotating formats.
  2. Desecrated Tomb was designed to play with Reassembling Skeleton, Bloodghast, dredge creatures, reanimation effects, and so on.
  3. I played in 2 sealed events last weekend and a 2HG draft yesterday for Battlebond. Last Saturday, my partner played UW fliers and I played BR midrange with a lot of removal, Stolen Strategy to use our opponents' decks against them, and the Demon that prevented life gain and dealt extra damage each turn. I also got a Thrilling Encore which helped us win games we were falling behind in by throwing away our board in combat only to have it return along with a couple enemy bombs we traded up for. I believe we ended up in 2nd or 3rd on tiebreakers, losing to a busted deck with 2 pairs of the blue and red partner rares. We were attacked for 192 by the dude that doubles power when you win a coin flip (starts as a 3/3)! Last Sunday, I played BGr midrange splashing for Blaze to end the game out of nowhere and my partner again played UWb fliers. We lost one match to mana flood, even with a fair bit of card draw used to try and keep the game going, hitting more lands and lower impact spells each time. We lost another match to a pair of Warrior tribal decks with a Najeela, the Bladeblossom and a good chunk of removal, ending up in 5th. This Sunday, my partner played GWur splashing for Switcheroo and Blaze. I ran back the BG midrange with an aggressive curve, decent removal and tokens and counters matter themes to go wide and attack with trample and deathtouch fairly quickly. My partner had big fliers, some lifegain and removal to stall, and of course Blaze for the extra reach after ramping. We beat the only undefeated team in the final round after getting paired up, but fell to 3rd on tiebreakers losing to the team that beat us, and the team we had just beaten. :/ The set has some good reprints for commander and casual players, good foil prints for cube enthusiasts, and decent play value for people who like multiplayer Magic. I plan on ordering some of the foils for my cube in a few weeks, after the prices hit rock bottom, but otherwise I'm glad to return to Dominaria drafts on the weekends.
  4. I'll keep a deck or 2 intact until rotation to keep playing standard, but I'm starting to pull apart the decks I haven't played in a while that are mostly rotating to sell or trade in for store credit toward modern cards or tournament entries to not have to pay out of pocket for much of anything. I'll be keeping the fast lands, Aether Hubs, Walking Ballistas, Fatal Pushes, Torrential Gearhulks, a set of Scrap Trawlers, a set of Scrapheap Scroungers, 2-3 The Scarab God, 2-4 Chandra, Torch of Defiance, at least 1-2 Hazoret the Fervent, my foil sets of Glimmer of Genius, Winding Constrictors and Disallows, and a couple vehicles I got in foil just in case they break out in modern, or slot into a random Commander deck down the road, .I'll be looking to acqure a few more Fatal Pushes, Walking Ballistas, Spire of Industry and the fast lands for modern and 1 copy of each Gearhulk masterpiece for my cube.
  5. Hey, it happens
  6. Multiplayer focus aside, this set is what Iconic Masters or Masters 25 should have been
  7. They're also uncommon
  8. I've been enjoying the limited play of Dominaria much more than the last few sets. I recommend getting to a LGS or a group of friends together for a draft or sealed deck experience of the set when you get time.
  9. Rares and some promos from the weekend
  10. I judged the midnight prerelease Saturday (without playing, since my pool was very medium) and cube drafted for a few hours that morning. Saturday afternoon I played WB and had some pretty solid removal and a few good creatures, but no real bombs. I went 3-3 and skipped the 2HG tournament after in favor of food and sleep to rest for Sunday's tournaments. Sunday's individual pool gave me some good white and green legendary creatures and legendary matters spells in Arvad and a Vile Offering off a Woodland Cemetery splash and a couple basics, but lacked a good removal suite otherwise and I struggled to go 4-2 to finish just outside the prizes. There were an odd number of players for the 2HG tournament and my ride was sticking around to judge the event, so I signed up with the extra player and got 2nd place with my WB deck full of removal, fliers and a Karn and his GR midrange deck splashing for a couple late game fliers and tricks in blue. After opening a box for judging and consolidating my pools from the tournaments, I have some pieces for green stompy and UR Wizards for standard if those decks take off, and a decent stack of trade bait for some friends, and hope to be ready for standard FNM this coming weekend with some updated decks. And for now, I'm off to catch up on laundry and sleep. Pics of promos and notable rares to come.
  11. My LGS is selling all of them at MSRP. I bought a Hazoret Aggro deck to finish up my mono-red deck to add to the standard deck pool (GBu Snek, WU control with and without Approach, UB midrange, and now red). I didn't play it out of the box until I finished the upgrades to the top tier version that's been wrecking the GP and Open Series, but a buddy of mine bought Vehicle Rush and went 2-2 with the stock 75 (even beating out Grixis energy and UW Approach). These are solid, competitive decks for people with a bit of experience looking to get back into standard without breaking the bank.
  12. I usually bring trades, playmats, dice, paper for tracking life, taking down notes and trades in progress, extra decks to play if there's time between other games/matches, and snacks/drinks depending on the location.
  13. My current EDH win conditions are: Tooth and Nail for Mikaeus the Unhallowed and Triskelion and Necrotic Ooze in play with Phyrexian Devourer and Walking Ballista or Triskelion in the graveyard.
  14. Vendilion Clique, Vindicate, Rishadan Port and Ensnaring Bridge spoiled this morning
