For flavor or fun, what are some of your favorite MTG cards you can't use outside of casual games?
I'm sure there are ways to abuse it, but I don't care, this card is a blast.
>March of the Machines
>every turn you can destroy an enemy's land, even more if you have a source of untaps
Just a shitty little mechanism nobody would ever really bother with thanks to cost.
That's a competitive, Spike oreiented, tournament viable pauper deck.
It's called AzoriousKitty (or sometimes Acid Trip).
...admittedly, Reality Acid is the *weakest* bounce target in the deck, but still.
It's not quite what you're looking for, but there's a similar deck called BorosKitty that tries to recur pic related.
Also, have another AzoriousKitty decklist.
causal 5 color control
>20 life swing with 5 land in play
The 5-color Apocalypse precon was the first Magic product I bought. I think the other rare was a Penumbra Wurm.
The first deck I ever put a lot of thought into was an Stasis lockdown deck. You needed to get out 9 lands then combo out using Early Harvest/Mischievous Quanar to make infinite mana and kill everyone with a Goblin Cannon.
I only used it for a couple games because my playgroup was still very casual and it was by far the most powerful deck any of us had ever made. I felt bad that no one had fun playing against (obviously, it was a Stasis deck) but it felt good to have a plan come together and actually work.
Freaking champion of stray souls.
It would be usable as a commander, but it isn't legendary!
I still keep 1 in my casual modern skeleton tribal deck for flavor and as way of preventing loss by mill.
Sorry high tide, ischrons scepter, stronic resonator, credit voucher, reminisce, retraced image, mitotic manipulation, riddlekeeper, fatespinner, paradox haze, whirlpool warrior, whirlpool rider, chasm stalker, jaces erasure, hedron crab. Thats what I got
Rest of the image was for a modern decklist idea, but Spreading Algae + Urborg is my favourite dumb combo
One of the best feelings you can experience as a Magic player is pulling this combo off in a big multiplayer game.
You can only really do it once with any given playgroup, because you will get focused to shit if you ever try to play that deck again.
I still think this one is potentially modern-viable.
I love multiplayer
So many people don't quite understand subtly, or maneuvering
Some get super pissed their obvious blatant broken combo gets focused faster than they can ever assemble it
The punch line is I still win every multiplayer, but I don't get focused
I don't know how casual it is, but it's a go-to way for Mikaeus EDH to win.
You just need Ghoulcaller's Bell or some other free way to trigger the loop after activating the top ability of the Guildmage.
The reason I think it can work is because I've managed to win with it, but you need maindecked Spellskites.
okay so Triskellion comes in as a 1/1 with 3 +1/+1 counters on him. With Mikaeus on the field he is a 2/2 with 3 +1/+1 counters on him.
Trisks ability removes one +1/+1 counter. So you wanna Use trisks ability on whatever you want once, then on itself twice. This effectively deals 1 damage to anything, and thenn kills itself.
Because Mikaeus gives undying, it comes back onto the field with and extra +1/+1 counter on it. So as it renenters it is a 2/2 with 4 +1/+1 counters on it. You can now hit something with Trisks ability twice, and itself twice. You've done 2 damage to something, and it dies, and undying triggers.
off the top of my head, it's Swamp, Tormod's Crypt, Dark ritual into Kaervek's Spite, sac the Crypt in response, and end up with nothing in hand, yard, or on the field. I forget how but you can also nuke your library
Try some form of Lantern Control with it. Or not. Probably not. Lantern Control really needs to stick to it's main plan.
Whats the earliest turn you can win on? 4? T1, Bell/Codex Shredder - T2, Mindcrank/Mage - T3, The other piece - T4, Activate ability and go off?
Floral Spuzzem does not work the way you think it does.
>inb4 "but it says on the card!" autism
No problem. Here is my favorite wincon in Mikaeus decks.
Is there any official/unofficial android apps to do mock draws and turns?
I use mtg cards info and thats good for deck building and prices but im looking for something to test deck synergy.
I like this one but it's pretty clunky.
can't put em in from outside the game
I don't want to ruin anyone's fun, but I feel obliged to point out one thing. This card has one ability. It allows players who have Cheatyface in their hand to get it into play without paying for it (assuming they don't get caught). This wasn't as clearly explained on the card as it should have been. This card does not let you do anything else other than the one ability written above.
official ruling from Maro
Any ideas on how to reuse un-cards after drafts? I kinda like the idea of slowly buying one of each card, mixing them all together, randomly assigning equal amounts face-down to each player in a casual game, and then letting them choose how many to put in their deck before returning the rest. Then after the game all used un-cards are returned.
Are there any flaws with that idea? I already own a decent amount and just want to bring them out as a rare treat from time to time with friends but we can never agree on how to incorporate them.
>R&D's Secret Lair
>Play cards as written. Ignore all errata.
I'll do it and then tap for one anus mana anon. You knew the risks when you chose to play unhinged/unglued with assholes like me. Thanks for the drink btw. :^)
I'm so lonely anon. You're my only friend I have left pls don't leave me. :'^(
I'm rather fond of the spellshapers
I want that playmat so bad.
