I want to spit out the red pill.
Outside of this vietnamese weaving basket circle, nobody, read NOBODY, gives a single fuck about niggers trannies and fat dikes. Nobody. They see a strong card and talk about interactions and possible combos and decklists in standard, modern, edh and so on. Sounds familiar? I bet most of you fags don't even remember the last time we could talk about deck brewing and the actual fucking game.
Spending time here made me hate mtg while every single one of my friends who isn't an incel schizo had fun with eldraine, theros, m21 and zendikar rising.

No, which is actually interesting. This is pure speculation, but I think Kaldheim might be somewhat of a flop. Even on places like MTG Reddit, I haven't seen that many people talking about it.
The good, unrealistic scenario: WOTC realizes that marketing towards the broadest and most casual demographics possible is bad, and put a little effort into making nonrotating formats decent again
The likely scenario: WOTC decides that the lack of powercreep was Kaldheim's major issue, and kicks things back up to Eldraine levels
The even more likely scenario: Both of the above scenarios happen simultaneously, and every format is nuked into the ground with mythics that make Uro look balanced.

I bought some nigger viking packs on arena. I just need to clarify I only have half a year of experience playing Magic. Now, the new set has some nice non-human cards, I think. Snow-centric mechanics is kind of dumb, seems to need more polish. Foretelling is nice, I like the scarecrow card that after foretelling is a 2/3 creature for 0 mana. Also, Im currently trying mobile and is quite handey, since my 2015 mac is having some issues and randomly shuts down while playing the game, while mobile works without an issue even if it consumes power a little to quickly during draft

I sorta got hyped when there was a slight discussion about BW Angels here as it turned my deck-building gears back on, other than that I can't say I saw anyone else hyped and that was the closest for me being "hyped" for Kaldheim. Hype that deflated when the Goddess of the Tree & World Tree were spoiled and I wanted to puke up blood.

>Draft 4 of Angels
Main goal was to add in a 4-drop cleric to give Aspirant use after I summoned angels/late game with Pyre of Heroes as well as a 5-drop angel to replace the 2nd Lyra. Also, 2 more MFDC lands with Agadeem's Awakening.
>4 Drop Cleric
There's only 1 4cmc angel cleric that could have her ascend to an angel (Glorious Protector from Kaldheim, literally only here so that I can have the Aspirants become angels and climb the ladder themselves, the flash flying etb isn't a thing). There were a couple of clerics that were interesting in theory, the rectors (Arena could grab Serra, Academy could grab Revenge and be sac fodder for Ayil/Boast Valkyrie), I did try a match with Mangara because I saw "Draw a card" and then promptly slapped myself after the first game, Yawgmoth was an interesting idea because he'd be draw & a sac outlet (for free), but I felt that he'd be a huge flavor fail, Yawgmoth doesn't belong with angels (or with clerics), and his removal's more permanent where the other angels have a redemption thing with giving the permanent back.
>5 drop angel
Fifja was a thought because extra card draw would be nice but considering the deck's mostly using Pyre, she doesn't proc that much and the other one was Karmic Guide which is staying and is nice for the toolbox (can make 4-5 free if you don't need removal or whatever), though other angels could take the place.

two questions (kind of, more like four)

1. what's the average number of fetches for a deck that doesn't particularly care about filling the graveyard in 2 colors? what about 3 colors?

Pardon my retardation, forgot to log-out before linking the deck. I'm making the mistake of trying to make Rakdos, Lord of Riots work, currently trying out a control variant, have lots of info for it, depending on how this variant goes, I may let Rakdos out to pasture.

Doing fine minus Rakdos disappointing me.
Is it bad I follow a game from this?

>> No.77241044

let's use dredge as an example
the deck plays wooded foothills, arid mesa, scalding tarn, and bloodstained mire
it only needs to fetch basic mountains or shocklands that contain red
so as long as the fetch contains red, that's all that matters. it plays 8-9 fetches and it can just play 4 mire 4 foothills if it wants. the only time the others come into play, is niche pithing needle situations
with the proper combination of fetches and shocks you can play anything
average number depends on the deck. something like humans can't even really play fetches. something like spirits doesn't need to, but can for the deck thinning. the deck thinning and ability to shuffle come in very handy so most decks want to play a set but you don't want to play too many or else you are just damaging yourself a lot.

picrel is your Bible
For 2 color decks the basic fetches are best as they grab your basic lands or a shock land if necessary. Going any more is incredibly dumb unless you have a very specific reason. Many players argue not running fetches at all.
For 3 color decks it obviously depends on your spread of colors, land count, and archetype. Take Bant Vial for example. It runs Noble Heirarch, maybe Birds, Vial Path, and maybe Giver of Runes. Blue is completely useless turn 1 and is probably only run for Spell Queller and other 2/3 drops. So forget the blue for your early mana and focus hard on green and white. Get fetches for both and perhaps even forsake running a basic island entirely. 2 Temple Garden, 1 Hallowed Fountain, 1 Breeding Pool, a couple basics, a utility land or two like mutavault, and the rest are fetches. Work backwards with fetchlands. Find what you need for your fetch targets and utility lands and then pad out the rest of your mana.
4 color decks are 80% fetch lands and 20% shock lands, maybe 1 basic land if you expect to play against Path to Exile.

It's a death spiral.
We are in a game state where they keep printing these pushed cards that basically read, "if you can't answer this your opponent wins the game and punches your wife in the mouth."
They print so much of them that it is now possible to make decks that are just piles of these cards filling each step of the mana curve.
Their answer is to print "answer' cards that are intentionally gimped because in order to actually answer the broken shit, they would have to be even more broken, and just fuck everything in a different direction. As a result all the answers suck and are just good enough to rape fair decks (huhuh apparition so balanced) but do fuck all to hit the t0 threats. What's their out at this point? Printing different broken midrange shit hoping to hit "YGO balance" where it's "balanced" because everyone is going infinite t1.
They are literally retarded and pussy.

I feel the same way. From the preview cards I was pretty "excited" for this set, because we havent had much zombie stuff in standard for a while and a lot of the cards seemed to be zombies. Turns out, theres actually fuck all in the set. The only thing i saw thats I even considered putting into my deck was the powercreeped Divine Arrow, which it turns out is even shittier because it requires the target to be tapped, not just in combat.
Aside from zombies, there really isnt anything in any color that can make a full deck. Its a huge let down.

Yeah and we didn't get any best of any tribe this set. And wotc is insistent on making commanders for the set mechanic, like the foretell precon from this set, but we'll never see foretell again. Why bother making a legendary built for commander at all, let alone for a one set mechanic. If we actually stuck around we'd not only get more support for the various tribes so we might actually get good ones, but we might actually get enough support for the set mechanics for people to use the set mechanic commanders if they want to for some reason. Hell the monored boast bitch barely gets you any boast cards either. If they printed 3 sets then her boast boost might be actually useful instead of just being another goblin electromancer.

Not him, but tribal isn't often that interesting, especially when it comes to the new cards WotC puts out. You have cards that reduce the casting cost of X by 1, give all your Xs +1/+1, other Xs get a keyword, or check if you have X before doing a bog standard effect.

The most interesting tribe that WotC has done recently is dinosaurs, because they had a mechanical keyword beyond just being dinosaurs in the form of Enrage, and a lot of the cards that specifically cared about Dinosaur as a creature type were Humans rather than dinosaurs, so it isn't all self-enabling.

with u/w control, there are a lot of obvious must-play cards but you can decide whether or not you want the stoneblade package or if you want to splash red for access to some cards. you can go completely creatureless if you want.
with goblins/elves you ctrl+f goblins/elves, the cards have a clear singular gameplan, some cards are literally useless without the tribal aspect and if they're good they're autoincludes, the deck is going to be maximum 2 colors and anything nontribal has to have an obvious synergy or is so powerful it's an autoinclude in those colors anyway. they build themselves and are very linear.
you are trying to make it seem like tribal is very interesting and difficult because you only have this small number of choices but less choices actually makes it EASIER because it's all obvious and then the resulting pile is just going to be good or bad based on the synergistic power of that tribal pile. remember rebels vs. mercenaries? are you going to say that shit was difficult to build or required a lot of thought? and lin sivvi was just far stronger because the mechanic was stronger, and it will be that way forever unless they release some supercharged mercenary card. wotc gives you a small, shallow pool, you aren't fucking big brained for putting the peg in the hole. you are literally trying to say that LESS OPTIONS is better.

>pick the best one's in that tribe, throw in some lords and aether vials alongside cavern of souls

>> No.77251807

Well yeah you generally want to pick the best ones, but it's a decision between different ways to play that tribe, since different incarnations of the tribe between planes generally have different playstyles that you could lean into. Not only that but all the support that doesn't feature your tribe, or even to run the tribe support colors. Something like angels where the angel support cards like herald of war aren't generally particularly good so you have to pick the few good angels and then decide what direction you want to take the rest of the deck in to support them, like maybe bringing in an equipment package or using smaller creatures to help get them out and keep them alive. I guess it's easier to be more creative with a tribe that barely has support and is mostly high cmc, since something like goblins or elves has a whole history of explicit support cards to jam your deck with.

I don't think I've seen him talk about it, though I see the logic. Players are planeswalkers, and calling in a planeswalker friend wouldn't mean ordering them around. It'd make sense if the planeswalker did their own thing for a few turns and then fucked off.
It would also be easier to balance them, since it'd be a set and limited effect rather than a potentially endless value engine.

He talks about it enough to the point where I've started noticing he mentions it alot, and I don't even watch his videos often. I don't disagree with the basic idea that planeswalkers should pay a price for doing their thing, but I think you should be able to keep them around longer if you invest into planeswalker support.

They picked Tibalt because Snorri Sturluson's compilations of Norse mythological sources were heavily influenced by his Christianity, and he conflated the trickster god with Christian concepts of the devil. Tibalt impersonating Valki is an in-universe representation of the impact of Sturluson's decision--a devil from an entirely different paradigm replaces the god of lies and is much more cruel and malicious in his actions.

Okay faggots, here's how we break Modern.

>The deck
Changeling Tribal

>What the fuck are you retarded why would you do that
Changelings as a tribe get to benefit from every single strong niche tribal payoff ever printed. Any card that says "Whenever a [tribe] enters the battlefield" now effectively says "Whenever a creature enters the battlefield". That's a pretty large upgrade considering being niche is what keeps some cards balanced.

With MH1 there came some okay ones, but now with Kaldheim Wizards might have brought the "tribe" closer to becoming its own thing. While this is a thing people have done in EDH for a while by just jamming every shit Changeling, now we may have enough for constructed.

>Okay then Kooba name me some cards for your shitpile
Unsettled Mariner
Orvar, the All-Form
Mothdust Changeling
Valiant Changeling (always WW for 3/3 double strike)
Masked Vandal
Changeling Outcast
Chameleon Colossus
Universal Automaton

The creatures are expected to be a little bad, but it's the support that really spices things up. Also remember that we could actually run a copy of a non-Changeling lord because it would pump all of our creatures. So whatever the best lord ever printed is, we can run it. Perhaps Lord of Atlantis?

Swarmyard (bruh)
Cavern of Souls (mandatory)
Ghoulcaller's Chant (BRUH)
Blade of the Bloodchief
Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord
Sliver Hive
Conspicuous Snoop

It's really hard to actually find cards for this because as far as I'm aware there's no way to actually Gatherer/Scryfall this, so I'm combing EDHrec for tribal decks. Also you're underestimating Ghoulcaller's Chant and Swarmyard as payoff cards.

>> No.77266402

didn't say anything about swarmyard, the card is nuts if you can afford to slot it in your 5 color aggro deck

chant is just a value play when you are starting to lose and it brings back your fodder cards, not payoffs

Can i adapt new playstyle?
Today I went to Kald irl prerelease (3-2 lost to insanely fast boros aggro, which finished 5-0 in the end and to golgari guy we will talk a bit later)
So after game with golgari guy we decided to check each other decks. I had grixis control pile.
So he goes:
>RARE board clear, MYTHICAL 6/6 MYTHICAL BLUE GOD, RARE DRAUG ZOMBIE? Holy shit dude your pool is INSANE. I got lucky that I beat you
And there I was sitting next to him and thinking to myself ("Dude I wish I had 3/3 wolves that draw card on etb, 0/4 bear that tutors snow land on etb, that uncommon golgari saga)

Cards like yours don't feel like that'd be that good because you very quickly spaff your hand and are left with nothing but bears on board. So far my favourite card that I keep coming back to is Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord. Every ability is raw big dick gas. His first +1 on Changeling Outcast every turn basically outraces every deck ever, while Swarmyard sits there laughing as you chump. Sorin and Swarmyard are basically the only two cards that seem genuinely solid so far.

No, it's supposed to be a version of Monstrous, except the creature gets weaker instead of stronger for a much lower ability cost.

But if everything Relinquish can do is just as good as an ETB, it seems very limited. Monstrous stuff can have effective ETBs or grow larger which is relevant for combat. Growing smaller is never relevant for combat so you're just sticking ETBs on shit. Maybe use Relinquish to slap some of those keyword counters from Ikoria on shit.

>When this creature becomes Relinquished, put a reach counter on it

Something like that. The two cards you posted are literally the exact same card.

>> No.77270338

The idea would be you have a creature that starts off with a decent body. You can make it weaker in order to alter a situation to your advantage (blowing up an ensnaring bridge, fogging, countering a board wipe/combo piece, killing a bear).

Think of it as "soft saccing" a creature.

Costs might be clunky, but the basic idea is these creatures start off being beaters but can later be used for utility. There may be some static Relinquish effects like a basic Angel shrinking herself at a somewhat expensive cost to turn into a Glorious Anthem, or a slightly weaker Gifted Aetherborn using Relinquish for just B to make himself indestructible for the turn.

Okay carrying on from here, here's the list of cards that I think are good tribal payoffs that could be jammed into Shapeshifters. Question is, what does /tg/ think are the best cards out of this pile?

>Blade of the Bloodchief
>Neheb, the Worthy
>Pack Rat
>Gallia of the Endless Dance
>Cloudshredder Sliver
>Sliver Hive
>Essence Flux
>Lord of the Unreal
>Falkenrath Aristocrat
>Risen Reef
>Crucible of Fire
>Captivating Vampire
>Wayward Servant
>Diregraf Colossus
>Ghoulcaller's Chant

Some of these already synergise with Swarmyard/Sorin so are higher considerations. Guess I'll just throw a copy or two of everything in the list and see what works out best.
