>Of course, Twin has a large advantage over both in that it outside of these interactions it is an on the spot win.

No, Twin has an advantage because it has a wincon that doesn't revolve around putting a flying fatty on the board and praying for no removal.

Your wincon is literally cheat out Emrakul and just hope you win from there. You have literally no other plan if that doesn't work. That isn't a combo, thats just Timmy. At least Goryo can win the turn Emmy goes down

>No, Twin has an advantage because it has a wincon that doesn't revolve around putting a flying fatty on the board and praying for no removal.
Really now? The only 'Alternate Wincon' in a twin list is beatdowns with 1 to 3 power creatures and the good old 'Bolt Snap Bolt'.
If you run the deck as just UR twin with a slightly slower, more resilient combo then you see that Fold is really more of a sidegrade to twin lists for use in slower, more hate heavy metas.
Also
>Emrakul
>Removal
Show me all the spells used in modern that effecively deal with a creature that has "Protection from colored spells".
The Emrakul is honestly a placeholder card of "Any big resilient and game winning fatty of your choice". Stick in Progenitus, Stick in Iona, fucking jam a Grislebrand there if you love cards. Point is that Fold is comparable to twin in that it's a turn 4+ combo piece that gets gamewinning advantage.
>Your wincon is literally cheat out Emrakul and just hope you win from there.
The decklist I posted is just my first thoughts on a more all-in style use of the card. It can fit easily in a huge variety of builds.

And returning to this point for some memetext

Consider Peek. It's a non-free Gitaxian Probe, but it is instant speed. Sure, it is one turn slower, but it enables a more reliable EOT 5 "flash" Emrakul.


It does however suffer from being far less reliable than twin in its current iteration.

Twin runs 4-6 of one combo piece (untap creatures), and 3-4 (mostly 4) of the second.

This one runs 2 emrakuls and 4 of the fold.

The deck has an advantage when it comes to losing to removal (in that it flat out doesn't), but it's also far weaker to counterspells (having your original spell countered when you try to fold it.) Also, twin never really has to go all in, and can sit back with their creatures.
>>
>>44686239
>Really now? The only 'Alternate Wincon' in a twin list is beatdowns with 1 to 3 power creatures and the good old 'Bolt Snap Bolt

What are you talking about? Twin wins without combo all the time, and sides out the combo in around half of it's matchups. Your deck has literally none of those alternate conditions or even the means to defend itself let alone win when you can't get Emrakul in hand.

Saying that this deck has anything to do with UR Twin just shows you don't understand how UR Twin plays beyond yolo Twining T4. Fold doesn't create a winnable game or even an advantage any more than Living End does, and requires insane amounts of hand sculpting. You literally have no way to win the game if you can't straight up draw Emrakul and perfectly execute your sculpted hand with zero disruption.

Jamming Twin down on T4 with a prayer for no removal is how Twin LOSES. The combo is essentially delayed past T5-T6 just to ensure you're packing enough defense to secure Splinter Twin.

Oh hey look it's ALMOST EXACTLY LIKE TWIN, WIN WITH OR WITHOUT COMBO AND ALL.
The Esper decklist was just an experiment because Fold doesn't require red AT ALL. You can run it with red, you can run it fucking bant if you want, the only requirement is that you have blue mana, fold, any spell and a creature you want to crap on the field for cheap.

Swap 6 cards with tapdown that swing and block Zoo all-stars for a dead fatty in your hand/deck. And an enchantment that accelerates a beatdown battle/makes Snaps go crazy for a counterspell that actively helps your opponent when you cast it. Swap out the control sideboard for a pile of random hate. True genius there. The twin combo pieces are so resilient because they are either easily sided out, or actively help with the alternate wincons. The Fold "pieces" do literally nothing outside of getting the combo off.
>>
>>44686407

>>44686497

Then run a better sideboard?
A deck list isn't gospel anon, you can always change it to what you need or how you think a deck should be made. Just because his deck wasn't 100% perfectly tuned doesn't mean that Fold ISN'T a card that can slip incredibly easily into most shells that the Twin combo also fits in. The objective fact here doesn't change. Fold is a Twin alternative for when you want to be less fucked by potential removal.
>>
>>44686497
>>The twin combo pieces are so resilient because they are either easily sided out, or actively help with the alternate wincons.
>Twin
>Resilient
Except Twin has to wait to Twin later in the game for backup so they don't get hit my a counterspell, creature removal OR enchantment removal. The actual COMBO of those two cards can be ruined by three avenues of hate.
>or actively help with the alternate wincons.
That's a fair point, but that anon did actually point that out in >>44685564 just after he said Splinter Twin was somewhat 'useless'.
>>44686497
>The Fold "pieces" do literally nothing outside of getting the combo off.
Except that's wrong? One of the three pieces can be almost any spell in the game and Fold is actually a (although overcosted and with a downside) hard counterspell, making Emmy (Or any dumb fatty you want) the only dead draw in the deck.
>>
>>44686676

>The actual COMBO of those two cards can be ruined by three avenues of hate

This is just getting sad. With a Fold "combo," a single Dispel or Negate on anything you play literally removes your ability to win the game, the combo going off doesn't actively win you the game, and there is literally no way to win if you don't happen to have all of your combo pieces in hand at the same time.

>Fold is actually a (although overcosted and with a downside) hard counterspell

If you're casting Fold as a counterspell against a pilot with half a brain, you are instead actively accelerating their board and clock rather than hindering it. At least Splinter Twin doesn't help your opponent win by keeping it in.
>>
>>44686804
>This is just getting sad. With a Fold "combo," a single Dispel or Negate on anything you play literally removes your ability to win the game,
Unless you had a deck built like UR twin perhaps, that can also win without ever casting it's combo.
You're right, it's sad how you don't understand that your own complaints of the deck having no other wins cons are mute if you played a version of the list built around winning a more fair way.
Fold combo is 6 cards. Not even 6, that's just what I thought might be fine. Stick it in any deck you want that has flex slots and would benefit from it. That's the point I wanted to make. Not that my exact deck is good, but that Fold is a card with a lot of potential.
Yes, it has issues with the fact you will most likely run a creature you can't cast most of the time to combo with it. It also has only two weaknesses: counterspells (of which not every deck runs and you can also run because you're in blue already) and sacrifice removal (which makes up a small section of the removal used in modern).
Twin, as a two card combo, NOT a deck, is even more vulnerable to counters, vulnerable to more creature removal and also vulnerable to enchantment hate.
Twin as a full deck is irrelevant for the argument here, you can run nearly the same deck with Fold but with a few more spots for cards you may have wanted to run in Twin but didn't because you wanted to fit 10 combo pieces.

Fold (the combo) is a resilient twin substitute, play it like one.
>>
>>44686804
And as a final point
>If you're casting Fold as a counterspell against a pilot with half a brain, you are instead actively accelerating their board and clock rather than hindering it. At least Splinter Twin doesn't help your opponent win by keeping it in.
I didn't know that countering spells cast by decks that don't run value creatures/don't run creatures at all because they're combo somehow gave them a free Progenitus to slap down.
Yeah, countering enemy spells with Fold isn't pretty, but it can be a much better draw in some situations than any of the Twin combo against decks like Scapeshift or Ad Nauseum.

>>44686159
>I hope they don't touch amulet bloom

>>
>>44686942
>>44686987

You keep ignoring the fact that Pestermite and Exarch actively support the control wincon against all matchups, whereas Fatty and Fold are either dead or help your opponent win. Twin "as a full deck" works "as a full deck" because it has combo pieces that help the control side. You can't just slot those out for garbage and say it'll play the same.

If you're honestly trying to tell me Fold is a better play than an instant speed tapdown, Im going to just have to assume you don't know how Twin plays outside the combo.

Tapping down a land or a utility piece can be game ending, countering something just to give them anything else (or spending mana inefficiently against a race combo deck) is just a waste of cards.
>>
>>44687127
Bruh, Fold is a smaller combo package. You can play 4 Exarchs for all I fucking care with the little bit more room you get by only running 6 combo cards over the normal 10. Also no need to play cards Twin sometimes mainboard like Twisted Images because shit like Spellskite won't fuck you.
I get that the Twin pieces are good for supporting the control wincon. With Fold you can run cards that are even BETTER at supporting the control wincon. You have more room to run cards, and you can run more colours because the only mandatory colour is blue.

Here anon.
Certified 7/2 Twin sideboard, 9 slots for you to fill (I couldn't think of what fits here off the top of my head), adjust lands all you like. Give me a legitimate reason you can't put 8-9 strong UR cards in those slots and be playing twin with a more resilient combo and a higher quality of live draws. Pester and Exarch are nice cards, but I'm sure you can find something better.

Add in the fact that a single Thoughtseize on Fold either removes your ability to win the game, or signals that you have multiple dead cards in your hand.

You mean "2 Placeholder card for your choice of wincon creature".

No, you play Twin without the Twin combo in it, which you previously stated is very capable of winning.

If they Thoughtseize Fold and take it they have taken your combo card, but not your win. I literally copied 90% of a twin deck for that list, minus twin combo. You are contradicting yourself (>>44686131 "Twin wins without combo all the time, and sides out the combo in around half of it's matchups.") saying this deck can't win otherwise Twin would never win after side-boarding out combo. They are almost the exact same deck, but this one has 2 combo-only pieces and 4 sub-par but usable counters that can also be sided out.

Also Splintertwin has alot of value even outside of the combo like on a snap or on a spellskite and that utility comes out more than you might think where the 6 cards in fold are dead outside of the combo.
>>
>>44687993

Not only do they attack, they tapdown, wall Junk/Zoo stars, and most importantly: DONT CAUSE YOUR OPPONENT TO WIN THE GAME WHEN YOU CAST THEM OUTSIDE OF THE COMBO.

>>44687965

>4 are counter spells.

You keep saying that, and Im convinced you just don't understand how counterintuitive spending 4 mana to give your opponent free creatures on the board is. The resolution of a Fold is more often then not going to lead to significantly more assrape than if you hadn't countered in the first place.

>Of which, I am assuming, there are better cards in modern, even in UR as well, that serve their secondary tapdown/disruption and blocking purposes.

You're seriously underestimating how consistent the 6-4 spread is, and how efficient the Twin cards are.

>No, you play Twin without the Twin combo in it, which you previously stated is very capable of winning

Except for the part where you don't have the creatures, tap control, or inevitability.

>If they Thoughtseize Fold and take it they have taken your combo card, but not your win

Im not even going to try to beat this in anymore, Im just going to have to assume you've never seen Twin play the control game and win the game through life total with Snap, Exarch, and Pestermite on the board.

Exarch can effectively stall or even win games when played independently, Fatty de jour sits in your hand as a dead draw outside of the combo.

Splinter Twin can aid in the beatdown or buy you a Snap, Fold literally just makes you lose for 4cmc if you aren't "winning" with it.

Im just going to add in the hilarious fact that getting the Fold combo off doesn't actually win the game, and your opponent has an entire turn to kill you while Fatty sits there looking pretty. Fold "going off" essentially loses to Twin going off in response.
>>
>>44688113

>>44688202
But if you're planning to win by folding in an emrakul why do you want better value attackers? Why are you so desperate to play this obviously subpar deck and convince us it's better than the most played deck in modern right now? Sure it isn't shit, but Twin combo wins the game on the spot. Fold relies on a full turn at least before it wins. The deck is slower, and it's combo pieces don't have any real application outside of the combo? You're never going to cast Emrakul, your cantrip is just that, a shitty cantrip, and fold is a trashy ass counterspell. Twin gets extra beatdown and more snaps, Exarch/pester can play the controlly beatdown game pretty well.

I'm not playing it, I was simply THEORIZING on cards and real applications for them. Y'know, the thing that the top meta players do. The thing that any good player does. Thinks of new decks to see what might be viable. Lantern Control came from thinking of new uses for old cards. So did Amulet Bloom, the new cancer.

So does TarmoTwin. It still runs Exarch to actually win the game though.

>Not every deck runs creatures

Spending 4cmc to do nothing but counter a spell essentially means that either Ad Naus and Scapeshift have already won, or you have so much mana and such a slow opponent that the Twin package could have gone off by then.

>>44688271
>Or you topdeck lands over and over. Poor argument.

The argument isn't "what if Im flooded or starved" it's "I have zero ways of winning the game outside of pulling 1/30th of my deck with zero tutors." And the dead Fold, and an enabler. Then you have to have the mana for both the same turn and neither can be countered or you lose.

A good tip for combo decks: when the Thoughtseize decision making is along the lines of "what discard fucks him over" rather than "what can't I deal with." Your combo likely isn't secure. Even Scapeshit suffers some bad matchups due to this.

So well done, you've theorised a little bit and have worked out you could make a combo deck. Good job, plenty of people have done it before.

You've managed to completely derail this thread, and don't seem to understand your deck is so, so much worse than twin with this misguided idea that Twin can't play the beatdown game and needs to dedicate a few slots to some better beatdown creatures by running a completely different combo which doesn't even win on the spot. You want to beat someone down when playing Twin or a twin-esque deck? Play fucking tarmo twin and fuck off about this stupid ass t3 combo deck.

Imagine the first eldrazi poster.

That being said, criticism is good. You need to refine your idea, and then test it.

My worry with your idea is that six combo pieces, 2 of which are actually dead if you don't have one of the other 4 is both too much dead cards, and too little resiliency.

I foresee really bad matchups against any deck that can get set up fast, such as Affinity or even Lantern (though G1 you'll usually beat lantern, I don't see you beating them G2 or G3).

Burn is gonna hurt you too.

And with bad matchups against burn and affinity, you'll have serious trouble in this meta.

You can't use Fold as a counterspell, or you can't win and if you are using it to counter something, you've already lost. You have no real way to dig well apart from Visions and Remand, which will hardly draw you Emmy, and if it did, it'll be a dead card until you can use Fold on one of your own spells.
The deck idea doesn't work, don't delude yourself into thinking it can if you fine tuned it more. I honestly think you're a troll, and I guess you won, since we all responded.

He's got 4x git probe so his deck could win t5 with a t4 emrakul. Well, not win but after annihilator 6 no one's in a healthy state. The deck's still bad but it isn't THAT bad.

Your curve doesn't have enough 3 drops to really get value from CoCo AND it's a nombo with Thalia, vial would be alot better.
Troll isn't really a good card and when it is good it's on the defence but that isn't your gameplan
Wilt-Leaf Liege would be bomb since you lack reach and something to help you alpha strike and break stalemates but you can't CoCo it.
Also Aven Mindsensor is a must as is I believe an extra copy of Thalia.
1 or 2 tec edge, 1 or 2 Stirring Wildwood would also be good. Also fetchlands, what the balls? Or are you going to tell me that you can afford 4 Nobles and 4 Voices but not the cheapest fetch on the market?

These eldrazi decks are gonna be the shit. The absolute, top of the format shit. They're already competing with other decks, and everyone is just playing blind. Now they've gotten a whole shit ton of staple quality cards printed that slot in perfectly with their decks, and after a month of experimentation with the new eldrazi, a single archetype is going to emerge and punch tron's shit in.
>>
>>44688871

Yeah I really don't see the point of not reprinting this desu senpai.

Combo decks would still run Remand over it anyway, hard 2 mana counters would help keep a lot of nasty stuff in check.

Silumgar's Scorn, the new Surge counter, I hope they're considering it at least.

Fetches + 4 mainboard Leonin Arbiters is kind of a no go. No Hatebears list ever runs fetches. I do kind of agree with you on the topic of Trolls and Mindcensors though. I used to have this as an Aether Vial based deck and I didn't like it.

This. Ideas are fine. But you need to be open to the possibility that your idea is bad.

I'm looking at the list in >>44686023 and I see a deck that just dies, just completely hopelessly dies, if it doesn't draw an Emrakul, and has no way to tutor them, and still only runs two copies. There is no planet where that's a good plan. And please stop pretending Fold doubles as a counterspell, I'm pretty sure judges are trained to interpret a player using Fold to counter an opponent's spell as a concession.

speaking of ideas, heres mine!
http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/22-12-15-trash-for-treasure/
The idea is basicly to control the game long enough to drop a fatty with Trash for Treasure, sacrificing a Wellspring or in need a Citadel.
Ive been actually playtesting this, and the main problems are that its just a worse twin and kind of looses to GY hate, altough you still can drop Titans, Leviathans and Wurmcoils its not very good if your yard gets hated.
I've been thinking about splashing green for Bring To Light and also one or two huntmasters in the sideboard to support keranos as an alternate wincon.

It's okay to brew if you happen to be among the 20 best deckbuilders in the world. If you're not, don't bother unless you really like losing.

If there are decks that can reasonably be expected to kill on turn 2, shouldn't a reasonable counterspell or response be printed?

UU: Counter Target Spell

Would solve the amulet bloom problem.

Checking if I have this right: a card returned to the field from exile is essentially the same as playing from your hand, except it doesn't count as "play from your hand"?
>>
>>44690719
It wouldn't solve it, but it wouldn't really power any other decks up. Twin would be on the fence about running Counterspell because it's "hard" to cast on turn 2 and doesn't do much more than Mana Leak until later in the game, and Twin doesn't really want to be there anyway. Control, however, would fucking LOVE a 2 mana counterspell.

Adding the real Counterspell to Modern would likely make Modern more boring. Its power level is fine for the format, but since it's completely unconditional, there's no real way to play around it.
>>
What did tokens lose and tie too?
>>
>>44690875
>there's no real way to play around it
Seriously? Do you think that Modern decks are currently playing around each other? Affinity, Burn, Infect, Scapeshift, Twin, Tron, Living End. These aren't decks that want to interact; they just want to run people over while screaming LALALA NOT LISTENING with their fingers in their ears. Counterspell promotes interacting with your opponent and making decisions as to whether you want to let that spell resolve or whether you want to be greedy. My god I wish I could play control in modern.

>>44690914

>>44690864
If a card is exiled, counters will fall off it and disappear, unless otherwise stated (see skullbriar). The card that comes back from exile is treated as an entirely different object from the card that left to exile.

>>44690875
The best modern decks are completely uninteractive piles of cards though.

Modern needs low CMC fast answers to diversify it. BFZ and Oath are going to help a little bit with this, since devoid helps to get around protection, and thus can help against affinity.

But we also need a good counterspell, and an okay cantrip that doesn't promote combo too much.

I'd also like to see some cheap nonbasic land hate. We need more ghost quarter type cards.

And finally, they need to reprint cabal therapy and innocent blood.
>>
>>44690869
That sounds pretty fun and pretty bad. Care to share the list?
I could see Reflector Mage in a deck like that. I think the card looks fun and I want an excuse to play it.

>>44690864

Being exiled, even for a split second, makes a card completely forget what it was doing. It is treated as if it's a new card entirely.
>>
>>44691058
There is no list, just a vague idea of UW tempo and good UW tempo cards.

>>44691060

It doesn't matter where the card goes or where it came from unless specified on the card. A card has its memory wiped when it changes zones.

Tron, Scapeshift, and Amulet Bloom are all the reason that WotC's policy of not letting people interact with lands cheaply is retarded.

At least let us have some cheap nonbasic land hate.

You're probably right.

a 2 mana thought hemorrhage then. Here's how I'd word it:

RB
Sorcery
Name a card.
Target opponent reveals his or her hand. If any of the named card are there, exile them, and deal 3 damage to that player for each of the named card exiled this way. If any cards are exiled this way, tSearch that player's graveyard and library for all cards with that name and exile them. Then that player shuffles his or her library.

That way you still have to guess which of the tron lands are in his hand, there's some interaction.

Then reprint brainstorm, to make it even more fun of a mini game.

Oh, and give it Flashback---Sacrifice a creature.

>>44692092

Just ban whatever are the three most expensive cards in the format every month.
>>
>>44692423
The converted mana cost (commonly abbreviated CMC) of an object is an integer equal to or greater than zero. It is determined by converting each colored mana symbol in the spell's cost to 1 (unless it is one of the hybrid mana symbols Mana2w.pngMana2u.pngMana2b.pngMana2r.pngMana2g.png, each of which converts to 2), then adding the results to the colorless mana cost of the spell. (For example, spells with mana costs of Mana 2.pngGreen mana.png and Mana 1.pngGreen mana.pngGreen mana.png both have a converted mana cost of 3.)

The only case in which a spell's converted mana cost can ever vary is for spells with Mana X.png in the mana cost. When an object with X in the mana cost is on the stack, X equals whatever value was chosen for it when it was put on the stack. In any other location, X equals 0.

>>44692582
Depends on when you started. If you have some vintage playables, try moderately competitive EDH. It has a good community, is eternal, and is a lot of fun.

If you don't have vintage staples, and aren't willing to sell 2d8 organs to buy into vintage, you're stuck with modern or standard.

Modern will cost you 1d4 organs to buy into, but if you buy something like affinity, the upkeep will be very little.

Standard will cost you 1 organ per year for the rest of your life to buy into and maintain.

And then finally, there's the lowest tier of play, casual EDH. It costs about 1000-10000 dollars to buy into, almost all of which is spent exclusively on commissioning furry porn alters of varying playability.

Basically, what he told me, is that when it comes into play tapped that you immediately get the "Add [a] Planes to your mana pool" is given to you for free. That it's basically a free +1/+1 Vigilance for that turn AND a Planes land all in one. That sounds too good to be true to me.

How are you supposed to use the Planes tap effect anyways? Is the card itself just a Planes outside of the buff or do I have to use a token of some kind to represent the Planes?

>>44693252
WAT

It enters tapped, you can't it again for mana the turn you play it. Because of that drawback, one of your creatures gets +1/+1 and vigilance until end of turn.
>>
FUCK YOU JEFF YOU DON'T DESERVE TO WIN YOU BALDING FUCK
>>
>>44693252
it's a land with an etb effect. It buffs the turn it comes in. It comes in tapped so you can not tap it for mana the first turn it enters as it is already tapped. You can tap it for W once it's untapped.

It doesn't create a Plains card. It just taps for white mana, just like a Plains card would.

All basic lands have and "invisible" ability that says "Tap this card and you get a mana of this color". They are not mana themselves, they just can give you mana. Mixing the two is a common mistake for newbies, especially since Duels gives confusing tooltips that claim lands are mana (they're not, mana is an entirely separate thing that lands just give).

Thanks, the more I think about this the more this makes sense to me.

Yeah, so I bought this White/Red starter deck and at the same time the store owner gave me this black deck box for free with two 30 card decks (one White, one Red) as well. It was pretty nice.

Today I took them apart and made two complete 60 card decks. One mono-white and one mono-red.

These last few days have made me really hate WOTC, this economy is out of control

In legacy I can be fairly sure my expensive cards will be playable for years but in modern, the banlist is so erratic I don't think anything is safe

>>
>>44693430
>Duels gives confusing tooltips
The simplified rules also give misleading answers as they claim that lands add mana when they become tapped, rather than them adding mana to your pool by tapping.
>>
>>44693478
The problem is that there isn't really an economy in Magic. In the real world, supply rises to meet demand and keep prices in equilibrium. But in Magic, supply CAN'T rise to meet demand, meaning that for equilibrium to be found, demand must fall. The anger people are feeling towards Wizards over this shit situation is an aspect of that forcibly falling demand. People are being forced out of Magic by money.

What's the most YuGiOh deck, past or present, in Magic?

By "YuGiOh," I mean decks with extreme deck-search and draw power and big sicknasty plays you can make early on. Does such a thing even exist?

I'm trying to imagine how it would look in my head. Perhaps there could be a card that bypasses your restriction of playing one Land per turn, Creatures who search for more creatures when played, and then winning the game with some insane 10+ damage combo.

Wal-Mart, Target, Barnes and Noble, and Amazon wouldn't give a fuck. Local shops that don't resell singles, which is really less of a thing than people seem to assume based on examples like SCG and other retailers, wouldn't give a fuck.

Wizards doesn't need secondary sellers. I just wish they'd start acting like they realize it.
>>
>>44693846
(1), (2), (3), (X), etc = Generic cost. This can be paid with any type of mana of the appropriate amount. (The types of mana are white, blue, black, red, green, and colorless.)

(<>) = Colorless mana. Anything that adds colorless mana to your mana pool adds that much (<>) to your mana pool. In a cost, (<>) means that you have to use specifically colorless mana to pay it (just like (w) means you have to use white mana).

So, a cost of (3)(<>) means "Pay three mana of any type plus one mana that is specifically colorless".

Colorless mana works the same as always (Sol Ring still taps for two colorless mana), it's just being represented with a new symbol (so Sol Ring now reads that it adds (<>)(<>) rather than (2) mana).

They profit indirectly, or do think that every article that comes out during spoiler from SCG and CFB praising the new set and hyping every new piece of shit on a cardboard are honest to god reviews and not ploys to move prouduct?
