What would be the best general for casting pic related? Im thinking Arjun so I can wheel until I draw it or nivix so I can bait out counterspells with my general.

I havent been to my lgs since the locals started using combo decks but the new rules really gave me the strength I needed to try out EDH again. I've been at home brewing and practicing my aim on my old edh decks and I haven't been this excited to play magic in a while. I've gotten to the point where I can confidently knock 80 cards off a deck so thats 40 damage, perfect for edh.
I can't wait to wipe the smiles off of the bullies faces and send them and their combo decks packing :)

The most I've dropped on a single card is 40$ for a snapcaster mage. I think it's the most expensive card I own, too at 55$ average tcg price. Also, one of my favorite cards because the same day I bought it, I had the following plays over consecutive turns:
>Cryptic Command
>Archaeomancer
>Cryptic Command
>Izzet Chronarch
>Cryptic Command
>Mystic Retrieval
>Cryptic Command
>Flashback Mystic Retrieval

All so I could stall the game against Omnath, Locus of Rage and try to find a more permanent solution. I kept drawing into stuff that let me recast cryptic. I lost that game.

I'll be honest, mine is a mess too. You have some light Voltron, curving Hero's Blade into Yasova gives you a 3 turn clock and enough power to steal most things at the table. You have the theft permanence of Bazaar Trader and Conjurer's Closet, sac outlets like Goblin Bombardment, some general green goodstuff and ramp, a little counter magic, even some land destruction once people started playing Homeward Path.

How fucked is my group? Is the game pretty balanced with 4 players, no matter the power levels?

You could just allow proxies, and find out what level of power people like to play at. New guy and poor kid will never shell out for expensive stuff unless they find out they like it too. Rich guy doesn't have to be held back in what he is "allowed" to play with, and not worrying about dosh makes jank prosper (imagine mairsil in a deck with candelabra and grim monolith).

This is coming from a guy that pimps 3k+ decks and still aims for a lower level of power when deckbuilding.

>>56725439
honestly sounds like your group will do pretty well. the try hard will make your group evolve and keep the meta interesting but you will need to set some ground rules with him more than likely about money spent. the new player will will be unpredictable and will keep you on your toes. the super poor guy can be happy with a precon or two and will make use of dollar bin tech which is always fun. gimmick decks are fine too and will add the above by playing interesting strats.

the biggest hurdle is going to be making sure the try hard doesnt go full turn 2 combo but if he is a reasonable person you should just be able to talk to him about it and he will understand.

my group was basically like yours when we started last year, dont be discouraged. id start by having everyone get a precon and just just sleeving them up and play and going from there

It depends on what your try to do with that money. Making a monobrown artifact deck that can crush people and consistently win turn 4 or 5 is much harder to do than with yisan, a deck that you could build to do that for about $100.

Price point isn't the issue, you have to build towards a specific power level that the group wants. To do that you have to find out what power level the group (not you, the group) is after in the first place.

My group was discussing this yesterday, because one of our friends will always win considering he's the most skillfull and also has the better decks. What we do is, we switch up decks every once in a while, so that eventual newbies can play finely tuned shit and get a better grasp, more experient players can get a feel of newbies decks and give them recs and so on.

Lands that sac themselves to get more lands, such as Blighted Woodland and Myriad Landscape, as well as Khalni Heart Expedition, are fantastic. You can afford to run colorless sources due to being two-color and fetching more basics than normal, so right after Omnath comes down, you can spend all of your mana next turn (or on the same turn if you wait a bit to play him) solely on those activated abilities to vomit out 5/5s. Nissa, Vital Force is incredible - it's almost impossible to attack into her effectively when she ticks up, and her emblem can singlehandedly let you draw half your deck. Her -2 isn't half-bad, either.

As for what to spend your fuckton of mana on, I recommend some regrowth spells like Season's Past and Wildest Dreams to get back your sac lands (this is dependent on how many you put in, I'm running 7, but Past and Dreams are quite good regardless), Animist's Awakening for a big dump all at once, and perhaps Journeyer's Kite to directly fish basics up.

The best thing about building him at first is that if you're on a budget, you can quite literally just jam basics till you hit 99 cards and it'll still be alright. I'm considering upping my land count right now simply because I sometimes find myself spending all my resources just trying to draw more land cards in general - they're just THAT good in this deck.

In general it depends on your opponents. Wizards has printed absolutely absurd graveyard hate cards that compared to any other kind of hate, and it can take a skilled pilot to try and win through them.

Your opponents actually have to put these cards in their decks though. If they don't a lot of graveyard strats get pretty degenerate with no real way to stop them, and it's not that hard to do. It would be like playing a deck where only you have removal, and nobody else understood the concept.

>> No.56728720

That's not totally true. It depends on how much people pack grave hate. And if multiple people at a table all do something with their graveyard, the whole table doesn't always have answers for each player. So someone can get Bogged/Tormod's Crypt'd, which would leave the doors wide open for the next person.
Obviously it really is meta dependent, but if you're playing at a table of people who all 'know what they are doing', odds are that half of them do something with their own graveyard, too.

I have no trouble playing around the hate. Just be smart. The difference is that a stupid graveyard player will lose 10/10 matches against hate, a smart one will lose maybe 2/10 to a well-placed / timed piece of hate. Just play intelligently and you'll do just fine.

Any way to give it deathtouch, as you said -- Basilisk Collar and Thornbite Staff are prime

Death Pits of Rath will do, too.

Also, if you can get an infinite death trigger loop, you can shoot your opponents dead. Granted, most such loops will let you win other ways too, but it does provide a damage-out to Melira or Mike + Persist & Sac. In mono-red, I think Staff of Domination + Servo Schematic + Krark Clan Ironworks + Goblin Welder will do it. True, this could also win with Impact Tremors, but you're looking for Sharpshooter, so jank is authorized

Checking... Play Servo Schematics, get a servo, sac them both for 4, getting a new servo, weld the servo into Schematics (+Servo), pay 4 to untap Welder and staff... yeah, that's a loop.

I actually don't because I often play in three-man pods and this card is bad late when some players could be empty-handed (half the group doesn't invest much in the game so their decks are pretty base aggro builds). I also can't flash it back with Toshiro.

1. What are the deck's win conditions? No, swinging to the fences is not a win condition unless you can split 120 damage over three players

I'd say it's a mix of consistency and speed. You can have a deck that's very consistent in what it does, but if what it does isn't game-ending or lockdown with extreme speed I wouldn't call it competitive.

How it competes against other competitive decks.

There are a couple assumptions for a competitive meta:
>0 cost counters are available, and some opponents consistently use multiple in addition to regular counters
>instant-speed combo wincons are run by most players
>"stax", referring to either no lands, no card draw, no permanents, or no untapping

If your deck can deal with all of those things, it's competitive. If it can deal with two of those things, it's 75%. If your deck can only deal with one of those things, it's in no way competitive.

I said it in another thread. Brainstorm is incredibly good for all sorts of reasons, Ponder and Preordain can serve similarly well, Gitaxian Probe is "free" and gives you some information, but after that, unless you're playing a deck that's either digging for a combo or gets some advantage by casting spells, whether it be more card draw (Jori En), tokens (Talrand, Locust God), damage (Niv-Mizzet), or your Storm commander of choice, then the benefit of more cantrips falls off sharply.
