As this is my first post, I'd like to make it a good one so: Hello everyone, I hope that you're all having a Magical day. (no pun intended)..I'm Me... I started playing back in the day when "Ice Age" was first introduced. I played in local tourneys and such and always seemed to finish 2nd or 3rd, but still had a lot of fun. My son became interested in MTG about a year after me, so I finally had someone to do "two-headed giant" matches with. I continued to play up until Hasbro bought out WoC, and then when priced dropped I collected more than I played. As you can imagine, I've collected a vast amount of cards over the years, as I normally bought 2 or 3 booster boxes at a time when new editions came out ( was trying to make complete sets). Anyhow, I just wanted to share with you something that I did, and it took me about 10 years to finish. I foiled an entire Burn/Land Destruction deck. I used this deck "Back in the Day" at local hobby shop tournaments, and it usually placed second or third to a fast 1/1 green creature, or blue counter decks. I decided that I wanted to do something that you just don't see much, and foil an entire deck. Due to the fact that some cards never came out in foil, I had to adjust the deck a little over the years to get what I wanted. The only people that get to see this deck now are people that are at the Hobby shop when I'm there now. Here is the list of cards in the deck now: Scent of Cinder x 4 (urza's) Sizzle x 4 (Mercadian) Ball Lightning x 3 (dci) Wake of Destruction x 1 (urza's) Keldon Champion x 4 (urza's) Goblin Gardener x 4 (urza's) Avalanche riders x 4 (urza's) Stone rain x 4 (dci) Shock x 4 (6th) Incinerate x 4 (deckmasters) Warmonger x 4 (Mercaian promo) Ghitu Encampment x 2 (urza's) Mountain x 18 (various) Just felt like sharing... Maybe I will foil my mono blue or green/white deck next. Going to try to attach a picture..Hope that I'm succesful
Afternoon folks, Just wanted to let you all know that we released our first ever standard deck tech yesterday for a Red Black Burn pinger deck I've been thinking about since HOU was spoiled. The deck is a lot of fun to play and is pretty similar to some of the Thermo-Alchemist brews from about a year ago. If burn in standard is your thing, check it out here:
Fort Worth/Dallas Texas held the largest Grand Prix in the history of Magic: The Gathering events; 2,019 players have shown up with their Modern format decks to play their way into one of the top 8 spots. Corey Burkhart has made a name for himself in the past using his Grixis control deck, which helped him to go undefeated with a 14 win and 0 loss standing: pretty impressive! Corey even took down Michael Mei's Infect deck in the semifinals. One more win and he would have beaten every single deck with no loss in one weekend. He made it to the finals and faced one more player in his attempt to take home the trophy and prizes. Kevin Mackie, a native Texan, made a surprising appearance in the top 8. He brought with him his mono-red “Skred red” deck, an aggressive powerhouse featuring Infect and Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle. As the final game drew to a close, Corey Burkhart was left facing a pretty powerful planeswalker: Koth of the Hammer. Corey tried to find a counter spell for Koth but it failed. Next, Corey looked to his “Ancestral Vision”, which also failed and just gave him three lands instead of something useful to keep alive. The only thing left to do was put out Tasigur, the Golden Fang, which was quickly taken out by Skred. Then Kevin made Koth go ultimate. His ultimate ability, if you’re not familiar is: −5: You get an emblem with "Mountains you control have ‘Tap: This land deals 1 damage to target creature or player.'" While the judges and players looked around the feature table for an emblem to represent Koths ultimate, Corey Burkhart had a better idea. He grabbed the trophy with a smile on his face and handed it to Kevin saying “Congratulations”. Here are their decks, in case you are interested in what cards they used. Kevin Mackie’s deck: Planeswalker (5) 4 Koth of the Hammer 1 Chandra, Torch of Defiance Creature (8) 3 Pia and Kiran Nalaar 3 Stormbreath Dragon 2 Eternal Scourge Witchcraft (3) 3 Anger of the Gods Instant (9) 4 Lightning Bolt 4 Skred 1 Magma Jet Artifact (10) 1 Pyrite Spellbomb 4 Relic of Progenitus 4 Mind Stone 1 Batterskull Enchantment (3) 3 Blood Moon Terra (22) 20 Snow-Covered Mountain 2 Scrying Sheets Corey Burkhart’s deck: Creature (7) 4 Snapcaster Mage 3 Tasigur, the Golden Fang Sorcery (8) 4 Ancestral Vision 4 Serum Visions Instant (22) 2 Countersquall 4 Cryptic Command 3 Kolaghan's Command 4 Lightning Bolt 2 Spell Snare 3 Terminate 4 Thought Scour Artifact (1) 1 Engineered Explosives Terra (22) 1 Blood Crypt 2 Creeping Tar Pit 3 Island1 Mountain 4 Polluted Delta 4 Scalding Tarn 1 Spirebluff Canal 2 Steam Vents 1 Sulfur Falls 1 Swamp 2 Watery Grave As always, thanks for reading my blog!
I thought this may be a fun deck to mess around with. i had all these old planeswalkersjust sitting around in my binders so i thoughtwhy not throw them into a deck and try to build around them. i tried out out against my brother in law'scrazy ramp deck and took him down with no time. click here and check out my deck with 5 planeswalkers in it, never had a deck with that many in it at one time. if you feel like theres a need for other cards in the deck let me know! remember i only made the deck with what i have.
