    The thread on AP was way more successful than I expected.

    What are you guys looking forward to?
    What are you currently running?

    New set looks amazing
    Can we all make Xmage accounts so we can do sealed tourneys or drafts against each other?

    I don't know what that is, but if it is free, I'm down. I almost bought a fat pack the other day, but I realized I didn't even play anything out of the last four I bought.

    It's an online client similar to MTGO but totally free. Takes some time to get used to priority and the interface on there but it's awesome, especially for someone like me who can't afford a competitive deck irl

    I usually run a lot of U/B or U/W. Don't do a whole lot of tri color decks. I always get mana screwed. Haven't looked too much into Innistrad, so I'll have to see how viable that looks for me.

    The last standard had incredible mana fixing so we're all used to three and four color decks, the new rare lands seem solid, but it's going to be an interesting adjustment to mana bases compared to how good it was with fetch lands and fetchable duels. We'll see, I just want Thing In The Ice and the new Sorin haha

    That Sorin is really cool. One of the better planeswalkers I've seen in a while. That Jace would be really nice in my Merfolk deck as well. Counters for lyf.

    really want to try out this weird modern brew, basically a combination of bogles and jeskai ascendency using cryptolith rite, basically makes the combo less fragile to removal. though i may as well just play storm at that point haha

    I'm probably not doing a prerelease, bc the first week SOI is legal there's an SCG Open ~40 minutes from my house and I need to save money. There's a chance I do go to a prerelease and just do 10 dollar drafts at the Open. We'll see.

    TOM NOOK? MORE LIKE TOM SHOOK Prestigious

    Already have an Xmage account (was Stereokiller) but I'm currently tied up with tons of backlog sadly. But I think some of my friends IRL are playing. I'll ask.

    Full set: SHADOWS OVER INNISTRAD | MythicSpoiler.com

    I did two prereleases, did ok but I got some decent stuff, including the two most valuable rares in the set (Thing In The Ice and Westvale Abbey) and 3 mythics.

    It's such a fun limited set. The original Innistrad block was my favorite Magic set.

    In these hands I'll hide, in these hands I'll hide Prestigious

    Picked up a fat pack tonight and pulled some decent cards.

    I'm enjoying the new set a lot better than BFZ&OGW. I hated that whole eldrazi plot, and the whole colorless mana thing really sucked.

    Started playing this year & run Standard control, basically a "fuck you" pathway arrows/deathtouch combo that pisses everyone off. I really like it haha

    Got a list? That sounds hilarious
     
  22. younglikeme

    ii // YLM

    Of course! It's a White/Blue/Black & it goes like this...

    Creatures:
    4x Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim
    4x Fathom Feeder
    2x Yoked Ox
    2x Sphinx of the Final Word

    Artifacts:
    4x Pathway Arrows

    Instants:
    4x Clash of Wills
    4x Anticipate
    4x Dazzling Reflection
    2x Gideon's Reproach
    2x Negate
    2x Healing Hands (replacing this with Chaplain's Blessing this week)
    2x Bone Splinters
    2x Negate
    2x Searing Light

    Lands:
    6x Island
    5x Swamp
    5x Plains
    2x Meandering River
    2x Submerged Boneyard
    2x Forsaken Sanctuary

    & it plays exactly as you'd imagine: turn 1 drop a pathway arrows, turn 2 a deathtouch creature, turn 3 equip, turn 4 you're picking off anything they have & you're free to run amok with the rest of your control mechanisms. It's really funny to see their face when you tap arrows to deal 1 damage to some 5+ toughness creature & kill it hahah

    If you're running a modern & can throw in some Ruthless Rippers & Typhoid Rats, it's even crazier because they're just one mana & the opponent anger is that much greater haha

    Just The Worst

    Thank god there's already a thread for this. I'm finally ready to get back into Standard now that Khans has rotated out. Anyone build a deck with SOI incorporated yet?

    I'm adding a SOI card into the deck I posted above in this thread but nothing built around it or with more than that yet. I only play standard though so it's only a matter of time before TCG player takes my money haha

    There were a lot of strong Human builds from the SCG this past weekend: W/U, W/G, and a mono white build which took 2nd place. I'm thinking of going this route.
