7 forest belcher is a good kind of meme, the primary gameplan is solid, and if you can't get the belcher out and running you still have a backup plan in wurmcoil and Tangle-Chan beatdown. it's unironically my favorite "unorthodox" deck.

So a self mill win-con like Jace, does it need a combo piece like inverter of truth to work or does it work regularly too by self milling?

let's hypothetically say paper magic completely collapses. or at least paper legacy completely collapses (i'm aware it's already dead in many places, but let's say that it completely dies even in places that are lucky like my lgs which held weekly legacy events pre-memevirus)

in that case, would dual lands decrease in value? or are investorfags content to sit on a pile of cards with "theoretical worth" of 500+ dollars even if there's not a single buyer?

frankly cards that are required to play like fetchlands should be constantly reprinted through the core set flip floping enemy and ally in addition the core set should be used as a set for needed reprints but the biggest thing is how much land bases are for modern really kills it for people

>> No.74026999

last week i decided to actually give vintage a try since i have a manatraders sub anyway to fuck around with different legacy decks in mtgo. i'm convinced everyone who ever recommended it to me either never played it themselves and are purely parroting it for e-cred, or they're edhtards or wannabe edhtards.

vintage is absolute dogshit since it is essentially 1v1 commander with 60 card decks. imagine unironically playing a format where every single deck has a list of 100% absolute must-include 1-ofs. the homogenization and lack of diversity is pitiful, and it gets absolutely shat on by legacy's metagame even now (even though legacy's meta is also not great at the moment, it is still orders of magnitude better than vintage)

Yeah, it's too tough to normally mill yourself. You're just putting yourself at such a disadvantage when you spend all your resources actively doing something bad and the only way self mill ever has a purpose is through dredge or delve.

Getting back to the format at hand, I've been trying to brew some tier 2 decks for the local meta (lots of stuff from the old metas pre china-scandal and most guys were focusing on stuff like brewing EDH or spending on mtgo).

this one I know is probably not that great, but is there a chance for this deck? Extra color, other cards for consistency? Is dredge just better or could this be current dredge's 2-3 color cousin?

This one has lots in common from some older aristocrat decks. Too many meme cards or would this actually work? https://www.archidekt.com/decks/679117#Archfiend's_Aristocrats
sideboards not-withstanding, they'd need weekly tweaking anyway to fit whatever my local meta becomes once this sham of a shutdown is over (not to go overly political, but most countries saw spikes in cases for the first few weeks after opening up and their deaths are at 0 now and the US is a 300Mil population, plus the death report scandals)

It doesn't matter if he's good. It is obvious what it was printed for, along with several other cards printed in both standard and supplemental sets. This distracts from printing sets for a good standard, modern, draft, etcetera.

>> No.74030065

There has been decent performing aristocrats decks, but you need to handle all these challenges:
Faster decks (be faster yourself or slow the game down somehow)
Accidental hate pieces (rip and leylines of the void are cards people still have in sideboards, especially at fnm)
Lack of interaction game one (I don't see your deck to be fast enough to win game one as you can't attack through a bear and can't combo out for the win unless you have 7 turns of no interruptions.

>> No.74030142

hmm, about what I thought, sb i have prepped irl does have critical mass of hate removal (thank god for white having good sb tech) but I do see what you mean about needing too many turns to get a win out. Any suggestions come to mind or should the deck be on the back burner. Do note one of the key interactions makes a 5/5 flyer pretty early in both versions but it's modern so I can see how that doesn't amount to much since the 5/5 itself isn't recurrable. Are the feeders just simply not enough either and are there certain other cards I should focus on instead?

>> No.74030161

I do understand the hate over printing obvious commander shit in non-commander sets. I like when legendary cards are made with commander in mind, but when they stray outside of that and print obvious broken shit in the other groups it gets way too obvious. I think Urza and Yawgmoth should have been held for the commander masters set since Urza should have obviously been shit for the modern format from the word "Go", though the short-lived Yawgmoth deck looked cool.

God damn I hate pioneer. Used to get around 10-20 people for weekly modern on Wednesdays and 20-40 people for modern FNM. All the dipshits who were 'deck brewers' got excited for the newly announce format while claiming it was superior to modern. Wednesdays went from that 10-20 people to 4-10 people and FNM went down to 10-15 people for modern.

By February, the pioneer scene at the shop had all but died and because people were dumb enough to trade in a bunch of their modern staples for pioneer cards, they lost massive value when 2 decks came out on top and their brewers paradise died. A few returned to modern, but a majority were disenfranchised leaving the landscape of any events ruined. The only positive is that the once a month legacy FNM still gets 20+ people.

Honestly, I think if they start to chill with FIRE after this year, it'll be just like Innastrad was back in 2011. A good general shakeup of core non-rotating formats.

I have a theory that many trends and popular opinions on social media fail to reflect on the actual thoughts of people in real life. Social media can be gamed via bots, influencers shilling products and ideas in order to get ahead and/or be "on the right side of history", and by turning just enough of the consumers/believers into being loud fanatics.
Optimistically, media influence may not be as powerful as it seems. Media requires a lot of trust and time in order to be effective, and the slightest squander can unravel their bond between them and the viewer. One may not be immune to propaganda, but they can make themselves resistant to it if they pay attention to the contradictions.
To get political, I'll use BLM as an example. Despite all the vandalism, looting, arson, batter, and even murder that has occurred, as well as attempts to remove law enforcement from a few cities, criticizing BLM and all groups such as Antifa that are associated with it is a literal thoughtcrime. and even silently staying out of the way makes one a bad guy in their eyes. Some individuals even feel they deserve to be victimized by these hooligans.
However, the reality is the vast majority of the population is mad about all the atrocities done in the name of a druggie thug. They may not be able to speak about it easily, but they can perform actions that shout much louder than any shrill LARPer. They can leave the city a la white flight, they can give up on reopening their business, and they can vote against the clowns who were complacent with the mayhem.

Remember that (You) the consumer have the power. If WotC makes bank, they make bank, but you don't have to be a part of it. You can save your money and boycott them. You may be just one person, but it adds up, and most importantly it adds up in your savings. Wizards can't force you to consume.

>> No.74037326

>You may be just one person, but it adds up
It doesn't. If your spending mattered to WotC then you'd know it because they'd make more products catered to you and people like you. If you assume that the people pulling the levers at Hasbro and upper level WotC are rational actors, and there's no reason to believe that they aren't, they are simply maximizing their gains by pursuing the most profitable demographics.

Nice that you feel that way, but the fundamental issue with your position is you're ideologue is coopted by the side you're trying to resist, and it's less of a binary, and more of a spectrum where you need to resist particular concepts, while also compartmentalizing them in their instance. All a post like this and the general "woke" bitching about WotC (art, card costs, reprint policy, ect) does is galvanize both sides. One side spams dumb shit about the cost of cardboard, economics, WotC being greedy, while the other spams dumb shit about how great certain concepts are, but the points where the ideas overlap and intersect are the key decision making factors, such as calling someone a shill for dumb reasons, or championing someone saying something with similar subtext. You fundamentally like magic, or you'd just be apathetic, and the best way to shape the discourse is through positive reinforcement about the concepts you want to see going forward.

every time i read through these threads i get a headache you faggots are missing the core issues with whats wrong with 2020 magic.
1. FIRE and play design have created an issue, the issue itself isnt powerful cards, cards like nicol bolas dragon god, teferi master of time etc. etc. all do powerful things, the problem is the cards that invalidate every reason to play anything else/create the mindset of "if im in this color theres no reason to not play the other color". if you are playing blue in current standard there is absolutely 0 reason to not play white or green or both. white for t3feri because he forces your opponent to play hearthstone and green because uro invalidates removal spells to a large extent. theros was supposed to be the set where you got incentives to play 1 color devotion decks but we got cards that did little to nothing, thassa saw play only to flicker agent of treachery, none of the other gods are seeing any play and with agent gone that means actual none are seeing play because cards like uro and t3feri are better reasons to play multi color than any reason to play a mono color devotion deck.
2. the clear focus on pushing edh cards in every single set. having EDH cards in sets isnt inherently a bad thing, the issue is when things are slapped on purely to push them for EDH. look at chulane, if he just said you can draw and put a land into play hed already be a solid bant commander. the fact they just threw vigilance and his tap ability are there clearly to push him to edh players. same with golos, golos is just a roided up solemn he didnt need the activated ability to make him playable.
i dont feel that having powerful cards is inherently a bad thing the problem is when its "hey lets just throw this on it for good measure" is a problem, cards that lead to uninteresting/homogenized games are the problem.

an example of i think a good edh card would be something like jhoira weather light captain or niv mizzet parun, both are powerful cards, both do powerful things, but they dont completely invalidate everything else. my biggest issue right now is homogeny. name any 5 color commander, why would i play them over golos?
>i wanna play slivers
cool golos ramps you and grabs you a sliver land and lets you cast slivers with his effect.
cool golos lets me ramp and cast 15 manas worth of dragons.
>5 color goodstuff
golos literally is the king
its the same issue with something like kinnan
if i wanna play a graveyard deck why would i play anything but meren? mazerik, jerard? none provide the value she does.
jhoira and niv are great because they do something specificly good instead of just doing everything. mizzix or melek are great alternatives to niv and let you build your deck differently. same with jhoira jhoira lets you do artifact stuff but tawnos is a strionic resonator, mishra lets you do cool stuff with the stack and gives you access to black, breya gives you 4 colors and another road to go down. etc. etc.
i think the issue with current day commander cards is that theyre printing commanders that make you go "why would i play anything but this" golos is the worst offender. i wish he would be banned not because hes overpowered but because he makes you go "why play anything else"

tldr they need to make more cards like jhoira or niv mizzle the parizzle for commander where theyre strong but dont invalidate other commanders in those colors/deck types.

Najeela is the fastest, most consistent combo commander available, with a redundant aggro strategy if disrupted.
Kenrith is the best value-grind commander out there.
First Sliver is the choice for a ton of other decks.

Golos is at best 4th place among WUBRG legends. He's actually even behind TnT, and tons of 3-color legends too.
The problem isn't Golos' power, it is how boring and easy he is to build and pilot. Shitters flock to him.

again like i said it isnt his power, its how he invalidates a bunch of other 5 color commanders because golos just does pretty much everything.

we heard you loud and clear the first time, Golos is pure unadulterated valuetown; but he's too unfocused to be in the top 3

najeela is slightly less value, but in return you get reliable engine that pops off every turn, goes up exponentially, and doesnt really need Cascading Cataracts to go off, which makes her way more appealing

Lolno. Mana inefficient both in colour and amount for effect, requires very large finite mana to go off, has the same outs as the usual suspects with no added benefit, and his lines are on average longer.

It's an Esper toolbox tainted pact deck you dip.

Kenrith isn't as fast as food chain because 1cmc bullshit tutors, and your logic assumes you have infinite mana to win, but Kenrith isn't part of generating it without oodles of mana, which is a major limiting factor.

>How many cards are required in the average line and what is the CMC you can start threatening the board from?
CMC is irrelevant. Kenrith can hit the board on turn 2, and nearly the entire deck is under 3cmc otherwise.
