It honestly depends on how quickly the other players play. If they sacrifice fetch lands while other people are taking their turns and don't spend too long making decisions then 5-6 is fine. Typically I play in groups of 4 though.
It also depends on whether or not somebody is playing a control deck with no or very few win conditions other than lockout.

My friends and I got into an argument last night about cascade.

If you cascade into a spell with an x in the mana cost does the non-x get paid and it goes off with x=0 or can you pay the x with mana immediately available to you?

Whenever a spell is cast without paying its mana cost, X will always be 0. You are also unable to pay alternate costs such as Suspend or Overload. You can however pay additional costs like kicker, buyback, replicate, if I remember correctly.

You are right with your examples, however the reason effects like kicker, buyback and replicate work is because they aren't part of the cost itself, but an additional effect. They work because they are NOT part of the cost of the card itself (like overload and suspend)

So after playing a lot of Grixis reanimator I decided to make a BUG reanimator deck because I love doing stuff with my graveyard and like looting too much to go Junk. I'm finding it rather boring though because although it feels more powerful there aren't really any interesting cards I can think of like Spellbound Dragon, Flayer of the Hatebound or Cauldron Dance. Does anyone have any suggestions for interesting green reanimation cards that aren't automatic includes like Woodfall Primus or Survival of the Fittest?

>> No.37442551

>>37442475

Birthing Pod isn't an auto–include, but if the way you build supports it, it's amazing. Pattern of Rebirth can also be really powerful in the right reanimation build. Greater Good is a fantastic sac outlet. Hornet Queen gives you five creatures to sac every time it enters play.

>> No.37442626

Which is more fun viable /tg/? Merfolk or vampires?

>> No.37442686

>>37442551
I stick Greater Good in every green deck I make, love that card so much. Pattern of Rebirth looks interesting and I'll probably try to get one but it seems like something for a sacrifice based deck rather than a reanimation one, same with Hornet Queen and Birthing Pod. I had a Savra deck that I'm thinking of rebuilding and the pod was an all-star in it, along with GG.

>> No.37442899

>>37442686

You should be running sac effects in your reanimation build. Besides Greater Good, I'd find room for Phyrexian Altar at least and then some of the strong one–off effects like High Market.

If you want the most efficient combo engine, go with Niv-Mizzle. Pretend you're skilled as you dig to or tutor up Curiosity or Ophidian Eye and cast it with counterspell backup.

If you want fun, go with Melek. Annoy your friends by taking ten minutes long turns racking up an insane storm count with pretty much no payoff.

Of the two, I much prefer Melek. Tons of cantrips, time spiral, turnabout, cryptic command, mind's desire. Doesn't really matter what you use to win, it could be Brain Freeze for what it's worth, the important part is casting tons of spells.

It is very easy to build a durdly Melek deck that doesn't know how to win. It is also very easy to play a good Melek deck poorly and thus end up accomplishing nothing. I'd say he isn't a commander for beginners, but for some reason, a lot of casuals are drawn to him: so he has a reputation as leading a deck that just masturbates on its own turns but never climaxes.

>but then again she could just tutor for a bunch of boring cards and be boring

This is the problem I guess? When you first start playing it's literally just wee whatever, but after you learn every rebel in the deck, you learn the best toolbox ways out of shit. Which normally amounts too, tutoring infinite life, tutoring bound in silence to the biggest general threat, then mirror entity people to death or playing test of endurance and MLD. But even saying that, other people's unpredictably is what makes playing the deck fun, the deck is really good at adapting/bouncing back and you don't give a single fuck about tucks as half your creatures tutor your general back out. That said, she became a quick hit for me, and a quick deck everyone else hates.

>> No.37444400

>>37444202
Sadly, most casuals' thought processes when building Melek is "Wow that means Brainstorm can draw me two cards! How many one-mana cantrips can I find on Gatherer?" I've looked through some Melek decks without ever being able to find a reliable wincon but they sure do draw a lot of cards.

As a guy who has Melek as one of their favorite decks, I can say it took me awhile to figure out an effective build. The first thing I tried was lots of big burn spells, but the deck was far too mana-hungry for the payout I was getting. Next I tried the cantrip idea, reasoning that I just needed more efficient instants/sorceries to be more effective, but then I fell into the trap mentioned above of not having enough win-cons. Eventually I settled on my current build, which features a lot of the 5-6 mana draw spells combined with a few more expensive burn spells and a variety of cheaper burn spells that either care about CMC or hand size. The end result is being able to draw through my deck fairly efficiently while being able to turn superfluous draw spells into extra damage and various ways to shuffle the deck back up and repeat the process. Not to mention a smattering of instant/sorcery copy effects because c'mon. It's Melek. It's actually a ton of fun and allows for a lot of interesting inter-deck interactions, and you usually end up with so many options that you can still manage unique games and maintain a decent level of consistency.

In duels or in multiplayer? If duels, it's possible you're just not running enough board wipes. Letting Gahiji amass more than a small handful of tokens is asking to get wrecked. Things like Pernicious Deed, Gaze of Granite, mass -1/-1 counters are great for keeping him under control while not damaging your own board too much.

If multiplayer, just make sure the other players understand that attacking each others is exactly what the Gahiji player wants. Treat him like Edric: don't fall for the temptation of that bonus on attacks, go after him directly.

A guy in my playgroup recently floated "first mulligan's free". We've used the "Partial Paris" mulligan from the official rules up until this point, but he's saying that a free mulligan at first (that is to say, you draw back up to 7 on your first mulligan, instead of up to 6) is pretty standard.

Is it wrong that more than half the games I play with Karador as my commander, I never bother playing him?

If you aren't casting your Commander most games, you should probably change your Commander. It means you aren't getting full advantage out of what is essentially a free tutor.

If you aren't getting advantage out of Karador, maybe run Ghave? He's insane if built around, but he's still very strong even if you don't build around him, and is often more useful in a vacuum than Karador is. Anafenza is an option if you're more aggro–oriented.

I mostly don't cast him just because I know as soon as I do, he'll get blown up.

100 card deck, singletons only except basic land, one card must be a legendary creature that you use as your "commander". Every other card in the deck can only be the colours of your commander. Your commander starts the game in a special zone called the command zone and can be cast as if he was in your hand. If he dies or gets exiled, you can choose to put him back into the command zone instead. Every successive time you cast your commander from the command zone he costs an additional 2 colourless mana to cast.

There's some irritating rebels you can fetch up. With anything that changes colors you can change Lawbringer/Lightbringer into easy constant removal.

CAPABLE of it; hardly a sure thing though.

It relies on a turn one Sol Ring ramping into a Signet (Simic, Izzet, Gruul; pick one). Turn two, drop a second land. Tap the Sol Ring for 2, use 1 of that to activate the Signet.

You now have 1 off the Sol Ring, two colored off the Signet, and two lands. Drop a Doubling Season.

Turn three drop Tamiyo and the DS automatically ramps her to 8 loyalty; the exact amount required for the emblem.

So capable; but it's not a guarantee. The deck's mostly proliferate/ramp/draw to get walkers out and proliferate the fuck out of them. It's got numerous infinite loyalty/mana hijinks (fuck yeah Chain Veil) and a good number of tutor type cards to get them.

Everyone is so completely convinced aggro is not viable, they forget how to build and play against aggro.

Well I'm personally of the opinion that land destruction outside of slapping around utility lands is kind of a dick move no matter what you're playing outside of MAYBE Mono R since stuff like Apocalypse and Decree of Annihilation are the only ways it can deal with certain threats.

That said my decks used to be notoriously bad at dealing with Aggro until I learned to pack a couple of early-game answers.

And where pray tell did I say such a thing? I was simply stating my dislike for the tactic. Nowhere did I say land destruction should be disallowed altogether. You can argue the legitimacy of the tactic all day. You won't convince me to think it's any less dickish. By a similar vein there are tactics that I use myself that I consider dickish. I'll still use them, because they fit my playstyle. I can still acknowledge that the guy on the receiving end probably doesn't appreciate it as much as I do.

>>37465225
Again, I never said it should be disallowed in its entirety. That being said, I've encountered about three Aggro decks. One was Gahiji which did pretty... Meh, but that's only because he got dicked over hard early game. The other two however... One was Marton Stromgald and the other was a friend of mine's Marchesa. Marton was just blazingly fast. It dumped Goblins and then dropped hasty Marton and alpha struck for fucktons. He blew me out in 1v1 and blew out the table in the following 4-man game because he just beat everyone's faces in before anyone had an answer for him.

Similarly, my friend's Marchesa deck destroyed me in 1v1, though sadly I haven't gotten to see it in action in multiplayer. It did, however, inspire me to retool my own Marchesa deck from combo/control to aggro/control and I've had a lot more fun with it ever since. None of those three decks ran LD and they were still highly effective.

The +1 is ramp and aggro at the same time. Combined with Aurelia, it can actually generate a good bit of mana. Also, if you're playing a deck that plans to blow up lands on a regular basis, exposing your mountains to removal isn't a huge deal: and you're going to recover faster from MLD as the first mountain you drop already has the capacity to generate RR.

You wouldn't think Koth would play nice with Armageddon but he does. I threw him in the deck on a whim when I got rid of Tibalt, and he's been doing awesome work every time I cast him. I rarely bother to ult him, being mana efficient with his abilities is usually better.

Also, having Flagstones of Trokair in play, casting Armageddon, fetching Sacred Foundry off the trigger and dropping a second mountain already puts you at four mana. That's pretty damn good.
