You completely fucked up, Tool Kits give you shitty cards that are only halfway decent if you're a completely new player with nothing else and you want to get into MtG and Ixalan has no good burn cards. Honestly Ixalan only has like 4 or 5 cards that will stay over $10 after a month so I hope you hit a couple to get your money back.

Monogreen dominates Duel Commander and is the only non-blue contender in Leviathan/1v1 MOL Commander.
It's extremelly powerful, it just can't beat three other assholes when they're all going against you and you don't have Cyclonic Rift. But generally speaking the only decks that can win despite the rest of the table kicking your nuts on sight are URx turn 2 combo decks.

I absolutely love her for being able to glue a bunch of weird shit throughout Magic's card design into a neat deck. I mentioned the quest cards and storage lands earlier, but I really can't understate how RIDICULOUS it is to take 8 counters off of Calciform Pools and put 16/16 in flyers on the board after proliferating for 4 turns or so. I built her as an Esper control shell with green for neat stuff like Fertilid, and jammed as much counter jank as possible in. Want to blow shit up? Quest for the Holy Relic into Worldslayer. Want a hand refill? Sacrifice Pursuit of Knowledge (spicy tech btw) at instant speed for seven cards. Want to kill shit? Guul Draz Assassin. Want to get a big board? Luminarch Ascension or Kazandu Tuskcalller. Back it all up with a counterspell package and some doubling stuff like Vorel and you have a control deck that can pull a wincon out of every single orifice in its' body.

A lot of the value is from foil/promo versions of cards.

The goal is to use fast mana to wheel into more fast mana and either mill people out or assemble combos while wheeling. I know the deck would instantly be better if I made Daretti the commander but I like Squee. He's kind of disarming to people that don't know my deck.

>> No.55570084

>>55569975
Wrong. It was changed both to behave more intuitively and to increase strategic depth. There's no strategy to unsummoning a creature to save it after it assigned damage because there's no tradeoff. You're always going to do that 100% of the time if it's profitable. Now you actually have to make a decision, unsummon the creature and save it or allow it to deal damage and die.

I'm not the dude you responded to, but:

There has been a steady increase over years on all reserved list cards, there's been a sharper increase on most over the past year, and the last month has seen an even sharper increase.

We're basically hitting peak reserved list increases because more and more people are realizing that there's literally no risk in buying any of them because they will ALWAYS go up unless Magic starts to die, which I just don't see happening.

Wheel of Fortune has jumped like $40-50 over just the last couple weeks and it's a card that should be a staple.

Personally, since I plan to play this format for a long time, I've stopped buying all cards except for reserved list singles. I don't want to be sitting here 5 years from now being totally unable to purchase good staple cards like Wheel or duals.

I love this game but if I was someone looking to get into Magic and discovered the reserved list and how much of an impact it has on the game, I would reconsider. Given it doesn't affect standard or modern but it's really fucking important for the other formats.

That might be their intention, but that is not Gaea's Cradle. It's not even fucking close.

Most of the expensive reserved list cards are just super efficient versions of normal effects. Many cards produce a shitload of mana at once, very few produce as much as Cradle can as early as it can.

Creating slightly worse versions of reserved list cards doesn't work because the original version will still be a very high cost barrier of entry to building the best version of your deck. Even if they could make a card that functions exactly as Cradle does, you'll still want the original because then you can have two.

the only issue there is that it creates an identical effect for players who can afford wheel of fortune. the only solution to that would be to create cards that nevermore their respective cards. I.E.:

command tower is basically a dual land that only works in edh. it's actually better than a dual in many situations. and wotc loves printing cards that refer back to famous cards. i wouldn't be surprised if we saw a cycle of modified reserve list edh staples in a commander product. they know that famous cards create hype and sell sets. look how many cards have the word "lotus" or "mox" in their names.

Well EDH is quite the goldmine for Wizards since they can just change rules whenever they want to sell more products because it's a """""causal""""" format, they probably will do an EDH only reserve list printing making a grand total of 50 boxes which get all bought up by one person and then sold for $299 on the internet and are never released again

+1/+1 and -1/-1 counters will still annihilate. The weirdness really kicks in when you start using funky counters for either + or -. Like you get a +1/+2 counter off Armor Thrull onto Dusk Urchins and start proliferating it to stave off the stacking -1/-1. Or you throw -2/-1 counters around with Contagion, onto creatures with +1/+1s, and possibly once again proliferate it for shits and giggles.

Nope. State based actions are checked and performed simultaneously.
>704.3 Whenever a player would get priority (see rule 116, “Timing and Priority”), the game checks for any of the listed conditions for state-based actions, then performs all applicable state-based actions simultaneously as a single event.
After BSZ resolves, before anyone can get priority, he'd have three +1/+1 counters and three -1/-1 counters removed and die from having 0 toughness simultaneously, and be in the grave with one -1/-1 counter.

The great philosophical question of our threads. There is no one definitive answer as far as I can tell. I think it's mostly dependent on your playgroup and how a given deck will function with the other decks. It's all about decks that create a good ecosystem when out in the field.

I think we can all agree that cEDH is the direct polar opposite of a great EDH deck though

That's not really true unless you consider an outclassed card to be useless. But anyway I think the issue here is that it's not black and white, either you're playing cEDH or you're playing casual battle cruiser and you're not allowed to care about winning. There aren't that many competitively viable commanders and strategies, but you can still try to take your tier 3 commander to his upper limit by playing good cards and a lot of people have fun doing that, me one of them.

In our meta people don't play cEDH netdecks but they do like to make shit loads of mana and draw tons of cards, sometimes people luck into a nutty win on turn 4-5, but the decks feel varied and fun to me.

Depends how he's building her.

We played sealed HoD and that was fun enough but I literally didn't pull enough non-chaff creatures in two colours to form a boardstate so I took my easy 4th place.

I'd much prefer to do a regular draft but 2 people in our playgroup would have next to no idea how to pull cards so sealed is probably a more level playing field overall.

The worst part is I don't even know what cards I want from Ixalan bar one of the Jace's and Vanquisher Banner. At least with HoD I was happy with any of the legendary creatures, stuff like mirage mirror, Bolas and some of the Hour of X cards.

You have to respect the fact that it's an extraordinarily slow, mana intensive card that costs you card advantage to play. Pretending that it being blown up is not a huge issue is as much of a childish "You can't kick me in the head because I'll block it!" moment. Maybe you're right, but when you do get kicked in the head, it's going to fucking hurt.
