I'm excited for SoI, should I go to the prerelease or save my cash for a fat pack or box? I'm relatively new and not looking to compete heavily but I love deck building and would like the option to. I've completely skipped kahns, origins and BFZ/OGW so I'm willing to make the investment on sealed.

Do we know what the deal with Nahiri is? Surely, she can't just have woken up, seen Zendikar in flames and think "Fuck you Sorin, that wasn't even your idea but I'm still gonna blow up your plane and not even try to defend mine".

>> No.46309645

>>46309419
prerelease. Fatpack can sometimes be seen as a small ripoff

prerelease is pretty much paying for 6 packs plus 1 dollar for whatever your promo is, and you get a neat little box and die with it.

You can also play around with your prerelease stuff and possibly win more packs.

>> No.46309674

>>46309498
A big part of the mystery is that we don't know and Sorin probably won't reveal the truth until EMN.

>> No.46309683

>>46309419
Prereleases are always great to go to, especially if you go with friends.

Fatpacks can be a ripoff if you pay full price or more ($40). The only reason why they were so great in BFZ block was due tot he pack of 80 full-art lands.

Boxes are not designed for value, so you will likely end up getting your money's worth, or less. If you want certain cards from this set then you are better off buying them separately.

Honestly, I think White is overall the safest color to go into, apart from red. You have a ton of fliers, decent control options and can reliably combine it with every other color, sharing aspects with each one.

>> No.46311014

>>46310803
>White

No, mate. Red is where its at.

Big hasty creatures that disrupt your opponent. Huge commons that transform and become even huger and get menace. Lots of removal, lots of damage, madness out of the ass.

Every time i get a good red pool on a sealed i manage to trash through everything that isnt running red. It's unreal how good the red commons are in this set.

White is sometimes too passive and your opponent might horde up a bigger army by the time you are reaching lethal point on white.

>> No.46311112

>>46311014
Anon, practice your reading comprehension.
>apart from red

I agreed with red being THE powerhouse, though you cannot always go into it properly, at which point white is most likely the safest option to first-pick into for a draft, since they have a handful of decent cards in all rarities.

You're welcome.

If you want a secret tech pick for a bit of a more Eldrazi-focused build, with the titans, more Deceivers or more Birthing Hulks: Loam Larva was incredibly good for me in earlier builds. Dropping a larva, searching for a Wastes and then going into a Ruin in the Wake is the greatest of feelings. Not to mention that it gives you a chump blocker before you drop your big dudes.

My store's powerlevel overall is relatively low, though, so it's a bit of a gamble.

Anyone else playing with the thought of putting together BW Skulkers?

Came up with this:

2x Odric, Lunarch Marshal
2x Behind the Scenes

4x Haunted Cloak

2x Westvale Abbey
2x Warped Landscape
4x Caves of Koilos
2x Shambling Vent

It's cool man. Yeah Loam Larva did a lot of Waste work for me in drafts and prerelease.

I really don't know what my standard scene power level is like, I just want to play at FNMs. EDH is fun but sometimes I wanna play with other dudes who ain't about that. I've picked up a bunch of landmatters stuff from drafts and prerelease so I just wanna build something with them

The only good way to spend money on packs in my opinion is drafting. Pre releases are fine too for the experience of starting a new set and the fun of trying new cards.

This, really. Draft usually gives you experience in determining card values and deckbuilding. It's also pretty much always fun, even in sub-par sets.

Apart from that, buying a giftbox or fat pack for storage is usually what I buy in terms of sealed product.

I like using her. The indestructibility+vigilance from her is pretty awesome to get, especially since Odric makes her share both Flying and Vigilance with everyone else. And yes, while the mass-destruction can be a bummer, it can also help to push the extra 3 damage through to kill something big that you throw your weenies at.

There's also Eerie Interlude, of course. Just let one of your guys die, make her flip, cause a wipe and at the end of the turn get everyone back and have her reset for a huge Flying Vigilance swipe the turn after.

Only in YGO the mere semblance of a pure control deck causes Konami to collectively shit itself and cause a more immediate ban compared to the usual tutor-mad combo nonsense they shit out every so often.

The only thing close to a control deck involves pic related but it's never seen a ban because barely anyone has it and I'm quite sure it hasn't had a European printing, thus making it illegal in sanctioned play.

It's garbage. Standard has no worthwhile cantrips right now and the spells you do want to cast are largely sorcery speed.

It's not that it dies to removal; it's that it's a flip card that does nothing but block when it comes up; and if your opponent allows it to flip it's probably game over.

Just think about it: you need a minimum of six mana to flip it; any earlier and it's just going to get targeted and killed. By turn six you'd need to have four one mana instants or sorceries ready to play alongside this; if you don't it's not going to make it to the next turn.

>> No.46336179

The depends entirely on your deck, really.

In most cases, creatures should be your priority. I like to have 15-20 of them, unless I'm playing a creature-based deck. Lands usually tally in between 20 and 28, depending on how much you need them and how fast your deck is. The rest of the cards should be whatever else you need for your deck to work, so generally either removal, responses or support enchantments/artifacts, in most cases.

Even with Delirium, though, you don't need to play everything. Just about every deck has Creatures, so that's covered. Add in Evolving Wilds or any other sac land and you're already halfway there.

Shhhh anon no need for images in christmas land. If you play the B enchant t1 then t2 a evolving wilds and crack the enchant discarding anything other than a land/enchant you have the card turned on by turn three. You can also ram any 1 mana creature into another creature instead of the evolving wilds to get it to activate.

You can also gather the pack t2 and pitch 5 cards, that combined with a 1 drop would most likely activate delirium.

Hangerback walker is 2 delerium types in a pinch and if you play it with this QT then the entire deck gets a little better for the late game.

Sorry I didnt see the sign that said this was the tier one pros only room.

He posted a deck that is standard legal. Its a gimick deck and its not good, but he just wants help trying to make the stupid thing work. Rather than help or just fucking ignore him you decided to be an ass just like you have this entire thread.

Like I said, kill yourself and make the world a better place.

I would go
-2 Topplegeist, so you become full ally (also he doesnt work towards the triskaidekaphobia, and the deck does not have many ways to enable delirium)
+2 Ultimate Price (some removal, just incase)
-4 Captain Claw's (you already get ally tokens with Retreat to Emeria, and you don't really need that much)
+4 March from the Tomb (to bring back the sweet Kalastria Healers after he killed them)
25 lands: 4x Ally Encampment (since its full ally now)
4x Westvale Abbey (mabye you need to get below 13 life, so you dont die to your own triskaidekaphobia, also you can get a big dude)
4x Caves of Koilos
3x Plains
10x Swamp

but I'm at no means a pro deck builder
(also this sounds really fun, might even try it)

actually its a fast burn. do you control multiple monsters? 300 for each. those set or active spells/traps? 300 each. they got a field spell? have another 300. they run pendulums? you better believe thats another 600.

thats a potential 3900 total damage just for controlling a generic syncro.

>> No.46348434

>>46346089
And...? You are firsr assuming they're packing enough cards that can hit planeswalkers that they will still have some available when you cast your walker and you're assuming that even if they do it's a big problem of they blow up your walker after you've already gotten value off of it.

Basically, if a walker is a good fit in your deck use it, if not then don't. There isn't enough planeswalker hate to completely hate them out of the format.

>> No.46348517

>>46346089
A good player will know what in your deck to use removal on anyway, anon. Seeing a few cards from your deck will tell them what deck you're playing and from that they'll know what to hit, that doesn't mean you shouldn't run good stuff.
