Actually Leyline is super beatable. Not only is it only live if its in opening hand, even if you do get to put it out you have 3 other dead draws in the deck through drawing multiples, giving me more time to draw creatures, or Destructive Revelry. Creature starts beat it, and Double Strike on Boros Charm helps push through just a bit more damage. The only cards that actually triggers me as a Burn player is Collective Brutality, Spreading Seas and maybe Kitchen Finks. The worst is Brutality though since it hits so hard and its hard to have the Skullcrack ready for it since its only two mana.

Went 2-0 vs Troll Worship. Game 1 Strip Mined them out of lands with Crucible GQ while sitting behind a Bridge and a Lili (They have Leyline of Sanctity maindeck and in opener so I couldn't Lili them out). I asked them what their out to Bridge was, they said they had none and scooped when I mentioned it was gonna be a long 33 turns before they decked out.
Game 2 I got them down to 1 with Darksteel Citadel beats after killing both of their 3/2 hexproof regen trolls with Flaying Tendrils, Tezz's life loss killed them through Worship.

I want to get into MTG but a few things are putting me off. I don't like how no matter your strategy if you don't draw the required amount of lands you get fucked. Also, I like to imprint my own personality and style in games I play but with mtg it seems unless you're good enough to build your own deck you have to netdeck. My other issue is no matter how good you are if the opponent spent more money they will win. Are these complaints retarded or is MTG not for me?

>> No.55396571

>>55396508
>if you don't draw the required amount of lands you get fucked
That's just simple statistics though. The more lands you put in the deck, the more likely you'll be draw them and vice versa
>with mtg it seems like unless you're good enough to build your own deck you have to netdeck
Netdecking isn't inherently a bad thing though. If you want to put your own style into a deck, you can. Most decks exist only as an archetype and act as a shell for whatever changes you might want to make. Sideboards are also a good way to put in a bit of your own play style.
>no matter how good you are if the opponent spent more money they will win
This isn't entirely true though. Yes, better cards tend to go for more money, but you can still be reasonably competitive with a budget deck. Hell, infect was never crazy expensive and it always performed well (until git probe was banned that is).

Point is, try out the game through something like Xmage and see if you like it, if you don't, no harm no foul.

Those kinds of decks are made to be expanded before serious use. At least get full playsets of your most important cards. Both decks are good starting points though, they have a lot of space to work with and also have some good stuff in them.

You can bring anything you like to play casual games in a store, but you'll definitely get more out of investment and research into a deck that's more powerful and suited to your particular playstyle.

You have perfect info, so navigate around it. If it's a bolt, lead with Mutagenic Growth leading into a kill, they have to cast it to not die but because you can sequence around it you win. If you have lots of creatures and Become Immense in hand just feed your excess dudes to it and finish the thing with Inkmoth. If it's an edict, sit tight until you have two dudes or a Spell Pierce.
>>55397533
And this is false, Infect died because of printing of Push which means now the deck has 3 4-of 1-mana kill spells to grind through, in addition to having a slower average goldfish than Storm and no plan B if your opponent draws more removal than you draw Infecters (noble kills are way more rare than in Legacy with Berserk). Probe was training wheels for pilots who knew what the fuck they were doing, its best use was keeping greedy as fuck zero land openers on the draw and having Become Immense online on turn 2.

The deck runs too many bricks at present. You somehow need to draw enough cards while going off to compensate for the 13 bricks in your deck since you're ideally going 6th land combo off. You can't even pass and do it next turn unless you have another Perspectives to draw three because another draw is just minus one brick. I'd cut lands to 22 by shaving a Forest and Island, cut Haze of Pollen, and add a card that just cycles on the cheap like a couple more Heiroglyphs and some Curator of Mysteries. I'd swap a Monitor for a 3rd Vizier too.

The bricking is the biggest deckbuilding restriction but it currently can make it without whiffing (assuming you've played some of the basics or cast a ramp spell, hit your shefnets to filter basics and use resounding wave to bounce some cycle lands).

cutting more basics (or even a perspective) for more cycle lands will lower the brick count, and more vizier can up the number of fast mana to cast lab maniac (currently 6 sources but 4 of them are shefnets)

in it's current form it can combo but the risk is centainly looming, would love to see a configuration that strikes a more solid balance. the deck is at it's core quite shitty, but it's also pretty fun and neat.

Tap it to cast New Perspectives, then use it as your Vizier untap target to slap your own land and remove a brick from your deck. Actually seems pretty good just as a singleton what with the usual use of telling Tron players to fuck of.

It actually matters in a lot of matchups since even the "police" deck of the format is a full on retard aggro pile that drops 1 mana 4/5s and 10/10s. By having ways to gain life you can point more burn to the dome instead of removing creatures that would kill you faster than you do.

So why can't WoTC just sell us a real, competitive deck (aka a deck that has more than 1 ofs for the sake of consistency)

Honestly when I got home and saw the amount of work (and money) I'll have to put into these decks to make them viable (and I'm not talking aobut tournament viable, just playing at my local store) just makes me want to quit right now before I get too deep into it.

Because the decks would get ripped off shelves by speculators long before you even figured out they exist.
They wouldn't reach new players at all.

If you want a deck to play at your LGS, your best bet is asking someone to help you build one, then ordering those cards as singles.

Alternatively, CardKingdom has its own product called "Battle Decks" where they make decks with an actual curve, consistency and 4-of's and sell them for $10, but in return are mostly made out of low value cards they can't sell. I don't know how powerful they are, but they should be better than a duel deck.

To clarify, if someone says they hate blue, they usually mean control, but blue also includes tribal strategies like merfolk which they would most likely gobble up like nobodies business if they just swapped the color to red.

Liking red usually means burn or aggro, but my favorite is big red, which is still mono red, but entirely different.

Not to mention combining multiple colors, which creates vastly different decks again.

Hating on colors is pleb tier, if you want to express preference for something, use archetypes.

I can't decide if I should leave in one Desert for Shefet Monitor, or if there's actually no point. Getting another Desert into play to bounce with a Resounding Wave draws you an extra card, but at the same time you don't need that extra card if you're getting another basic out of the way. I'm also heavily considering a set of Nimble Obstructionist. Kind of expensive to cycle but it's the kind of card the deck needs; slows your opponent down and fucks up important stuff.

Besides that the deck is actually quite consistent now, if a little on the slow side. But being slow isn't all that bad when you get to run actual real cards unlike a deck like Living End that just has to let shit happen.

(W) m1: white token 2-0
(W) m2: elves 2-0
(L) m3: green aggro devotion 1-2
(W) m4: gw lands hatebear deck thing 2-0
(L) m5: tron 0-2

couldve beaten green devotion if i wasnt retarded.

skred is a really easy deck though for beginners. i played a variant with ensnaring bridge that was even easier

First of all this deck looks awful. Second, having so many black mana requirements with only 11 basics is setting yourself up for failure. Considering you have 5 sideboard cards with a single red mana requirement you don't need so many nonbasics that tap for red. Leechridden Swamp also seems like a corner case. So if you take out both Urborgs, the Leechridden Swamp and the Smoldering Marsh and add more fetches and basics you should have your problem sorted out. In the matches where you need your red mana, you can just fetch for it when you need it.

if you read the original post, you would know I have some red splashed in to deal with artifacts. I guess it's more Black Devotion than Mono Black.

In my deck I only have the 1 Blood Crypt, but I probably do need more fetches. Thanks for the good response.

Here's my latest iteration of /tg/'s latest memedeck, New Perspectives. It's scarily consistent. An advantage it has over a deck like Living End is that it needs uncommon hate, though things like Pithing Needle or Revoker on Shefet Monitor are savage AF. Another big advantage this deck has is that it can actually use its spells as spells. Opponent plays a big threat? Counter it. I'm gonna work 4 Nimble Obstructionist into the deck soon, probably cut the Cast Out and some Renewed Faith/Angelsongs.

>>55422128
The bad matchups Im having are all Valakut variants, Storm and Turns. My only form of interaction with them is thought-Knot seer, which is often not enough. Warping Wail sorta helps against Scapeshift, but Im lost on the other two matches. Dragon's claw sounds great though. Does it trigger off every Grapeshot copy?

>> No.55422405

>>55422317
It doesn't trigger off the Grapeshot copies, but it triggers every time they cast a red spell to up their Storm count. Basically, if you're at 16 life when they begin to combo off, they need to have cast 16 blue spells by the time they go for the kill. Bear in mind that Manamorphose only makes 2 blue at a time.

For Turns I'd recommend Choke or Boil. They're also funny AF against Omenshift since they turn all their lands into Islands. For Titanshift in particular I'm not certain. Ponza has a naturally INSANE AS FUCK matchup so I never bothered. Torpor Orb perhaps?

Probably some expensive, non-masters supplemental product, since the manland cycle's value is so heavily skewed (Collonade is $30, Lavaclaw Reaches and Wildwood are $1-2) that they would lead to some really feel-bad packs. My guess is the next lands on the value chopping block are the Shadowmoor filterlands, since it's been nearly a decade and they're all around the same price of $25-15, save for Graven Cairns.

Actually supporting a hobby I take part in isn't "dumb shit" you fucking retard, it helps keep this hobby alive unlike fags like you who run to the chinamen at first sight. Not to mention that buying into formats like Modern and Legacy can net you money or at least get back what you put into it but considering how you're probably too retarded to have done any research into the financial aspect of MtG i can't really hold that against you.

Yes, the reason that board quality has "declined" is because of redditors and not /pol/ crossposters leaking out of their containment board. Definitely not. Or are "Boo Hoo SJW boogeyman" threads your idea of "quality?"

>Because I'm sure an experienced 4chan user would make that mistake right?
I was more arguing that there is no proof that A. There was any decrease in moronic internet tribalism B. That it negatively impacted the quality of the board and C.

There are a limited amount of threads so having an unnecessary thread up does in fact negatively affect the board.
