Thread: A Planeswalker's Guide to SPPf (Magic: the Gathering)

  1. #1

    Default A Planeswalker's Guide to SPPf (Magic: the Gathering)

    I was looking at this thread for a while, and it seems like nobody on this site plays Magic! It strikes me as weird, considering how Magic's such a worldwide game. Anyway, I did this as a way to draw out people who play Magic so we can have something to discuss here. Also, maybe we could attract some new players to the game too.

    I don't care about my pokemon other than their battling potential. If they aren't good at battling, I'm not going to use them. If I have to spend time getting my pokemon to be perfect, so be it. I'll battle your pokemon that are "raised with love" anytime, and you know what? I'll probably win.

    EDH all the way

    Teneb and Thraximundar as my Generals

    Believe it or not, Thraximundar deck only have Thraximundar as my Beater =D, the rest is tricks and combos.

    Teneb on the other hand is just all around fun graveyard manipulation deck.

    Yeah, I'm waiting for Innistrad to get back into standard. My local fnm place doesn't do modern.

    I try to have one of each color at the moment, though I'm most proud of my Blue Artifact based deck and my green Spectacular Spider-Deck.

    I haven't played MTG in so long... I like using White and Green decks though.

    I did this with Sedris. There were no real beaters in the deck, though it did tend to bring my opponents' HP down a little while I wait to set up Dream Halls/Mind Over Matter + Psychosis Crawler. The deck was dripping with raw draw power and I often was able to draw, and play, my entire deck in one turn. The only real big beater I had in the deck was Kozilek, who usually just got cast then sacced for a DH'd Vivisection or something to recycle the deck.

    I redid that to have Damia as the general. It's even more ridiculous now but also includes some more Green Big Beats-type creatures like Vorosh (who becomes truly insane with Doubling Season + Copy Enchantment... +24/+24 for dealing damage please!), token generation via Leafdrake Roost/Pentavus/Triskelavus, Doubling Season, and a fair bit of land ramp so I always get access to the right mana ASAP.

    I like my new Red/Black Bloodthirst deck, it gets pretty brutal for my opponents!

    my dismantled deck had Glissa the Traitor as General, and a large amount of artifacts, Darksteel Forge, and Mycosynth Lattice. I rarely used it, and the green left it. I'm thinking of using a black EDH deck revolving around Sheoldred being the General and using a lot of Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni, but I haven't gotten around to doing it yet.

    I used to play MtG. Back when I played, I had this fun Golgari deck and an Izzet deck. That was awhile ago, I think.

    It's impossible to ever fall away from MTG no matter how much you try. I run a Blue-white control deck. I don't konw much about terminology or anything, but my deck works well and I usually win within my group of friends.

    I stopped playing when Shards of Alara rotated out of standard and haven't looked back since.

    $10 says he comes back at some point during Innistrad Block.

    Also, I'm really liking Innistrad's previews so far, but it's just missing one thing: Storm Crow.

    You missed the return of Phyrexia then, any player who played since Dominaria would've thought '**** YEAH PHYREXIAAA'

    The new Mirrodin block really placed a fresh face of Phyrexia and I loved every inch of it except that Yawgmoth seems to be non-existant in terms of card-presence.

    I do like the New Phrexia set, the fact that some cards can be paid for with life instead of mana has come in handy a couple times, especially early on in the game...

    I cried a little when you said that, but then again, sorta true, Phyrexia cards doesn't seem to make certain cards aligned to their colour, such as White or Green

    I have already checked out the new set and I gotta say, it isn't looking good in my opinion. I don't like the reverse cards they're making they look stupid.
