I had Selvala, a few cantrips in my hand, and was ready for an explosive play. I forgot turn order, tapped Selvala in my upkeep, my friends laughed at me and told me that if I was going to be /that/ dumb I deserved it. And I did. Couldn't get the mana to cast my hand, passed turn to the Zurgo player, who swung at my poor elf face.

The other bug gods are probably good calls.

Most of the Hours are playable, but Revelation in particular looks to be a staple. Maybe scrape together Promise, Eternity, and Devastation if they're cheap since some decks will want them. You can probably skip Glory though mono-black exile removal isn't a huge set of cards to choose from.

Torment of Hailfire seems like a typical "Tuned for 20 life formats so bad in EDH" call but it can do disgusting, disgusting things with Black's top ramp. At 10+ for X (not all that difficult to hit)

The base price of the card will affect how pricey its masterpiece version is. Take look at Torrential Gearhulk, which went from a low of $25-$30 up to $90-$100 as people started playing it in earnest, and has since coasted down to about $40-$50.

If I summon a creature with X tokens (of whatever kind) where X is the additional cost you paid for it, like Walking Ballista, and later I blink it, what happens?
It comes back with all its tokens or it doesn't get any (thus, in the case of the Ballista, it dies immediately since it would be a 0/0)

Do you mean Magic terminology or just english grammar/sentence construction?
Because of the latter I've noticed some errors, effectively (made mostly because English isn't my first language), and I'm completely new in the former, since I've always played Magic with my friends with little "help" from Internet, so I never learned most of the terms commonly used

>> No.54318366

>>54318225
The only problem I see is that
>tokens

>counters

>> No.54318378

>>54318225
Now for terminology.

Summon, oddly enough, has not been reinstated in this world us using flavorful words in rules text. You cast a creature spell. This will be kind of relevant later.

They're not tokens, they're counters. This is actually rather important since tokens are a thing (basically independent fake cards that only exist on the battlefield) that is totally different from counters (Little countable modifiers to an object, sometimes with innate rules)

"Blink" and "Flicker" are slang -- what you are actually doing to the recipient of such an effect is exiling it, then returning it to the battlefield. When something leaves the battlefield, it ceases to be the game object it was back when it was on the battlefield, so nothing about the old version is 'remembered'. The X of Walking Ballista was only really defined while it was on the stack, and while undefined X is 0. Therefore, when it enters the battlefield from exile, where you didn't (and couldn't) set any value for X, X will be 0 and it will enter with 0 counters (and, in most circumstances, immediately be placed in its owner's graveyard)

Now, if X wasn't involved -- say for Graft creatures like Pic Related that have a fixed number, their enters-the-battlefield ability will work normally and give them their starting counter value (Two for Pic Related, no matter how many she had before), because the issue is not that flickering something makes it not get counters, it's that flickering will remove the old counters (Since it ceases to be the object that had the counters) and nothing on Walking Ballista will place more than 0 new counters when it enters the battlefield from exile (or in any other circumstance that didn't define X).

There is one exception to the "Zone Change? New object? Counters go away." rule: Skullbriar, the Walking grave. The fact that Skullbriar explicitly keeps its counters when moving between public zones should suggest that such is not standard behavior.

Finally completed my 5 variations on Blue. In order of creation:

>Bruna, Light of Alabaster
>2/5 competitive, 3/5 fun
Typical voltron bullshit, was my first EDH deck. Could be better with some cash investment, but all the good auras are outside my casual ass's price range.

>Melek, Izzet Paragon
>1/5 competitive, 4/5 fun
Started out as just "If it has an izzet watermark, throw it in the deck" to go with the promo. No effort has been made to fine-tune the deck's capabilities, it's just been shove crazy shit in. Casual as fuck, and really embarrassing for others at the table when they lose to it (generally from it turning a bunch of tokens into dragons).

>Grimgrin, Corpseborn
>3/5 competitive, 4/5 fun
Playing zombies, sacing zombies, swinging with zombies, hoping desperately the opponent doesn't lock me down with Enchantments or artifacts. Works a lot smoother than my Bruna deck, though with a 5 mana general is still subject to having to rely on the rest of the deck to win.

>Edric, Spymaster of Trest
>3/5 competitive, 3/5 fun
Trying to take a political slant on him, he's worked decently but my lack of actual finisher cards has really let me down. Need to get my hands on Beastmaster's Ascension and other good mass buff spells/enchantments. It's fun playing opponents off each other, but the deck is still clunky.

>Muzzio, Visonary Architect
>3/5 competitive, 4/5 fun
Oh god so many artifacts, everywhere, all the time. I've gone several turns where I didn't play ANYTHING from my hand, just activated abilities and cheated things into play. With some properly good artifacts (darksteel forge, dark/blightsteel colossus, some good X outlet for all this mana) I could probably get this to 4/5, but for now it's still stuck in my NEET casual pile.

I'm halfway tempted to make a "Everyone is on fire" Purphoros deck on the cheap for a nonblue deck, but honestly until I get a regular playgroup again it's probably not worth it.

I play a Similar deck to your opponent with Teysa, Oezhov Scion. But I usually just Drop some of the "I Win combo Cards" like Exquisite Blood or Darkest Hour out depending on what power-level opponents I am playing.

Its Really important to get rid of the obvious Combo-pieces before they go off. A cheeky Mana-tithe helps if theyre tapping out given that you are in White. Don't be afraid of teaming up too

According to mtggoldfish, well that is fucked up.

On the other hand a near mint savannah still costs more than a near mint horizon canopy on magiccardmarket. Anyways wizards should reprint this stupid thing, together with scalding tarn.

They would never print a cycle of lands with the effect.

Not necessarily a cycle, but just the set that has it. None of the other Future Sight cards are cycles.

You can get the canopy for 80 and Savanah for closer to 60, but yeah it is pretty shocking.

It shows you that GW is much better in Modern than it is in Legacy/Vintage/EDH. If you look at painlands (10th edition for instance) prices it's the same way, Brushland is like 15$ while Yavimaya Cost is only 2$. That's pretty crazy.

>> No.54326229

>>54325940
wotc hasn't had the guts to make sets with the Future Sight lands except for Graven Cairns. I truly hope that they will someday though. Nimbus Maze and River of Tears would both be totally safe to do and there is no excuse for wotc ignoring them. Grove of the Burnwillows was made GR because healing your opponent should be a bigger drawback for aggressive colors but it ended up being a combo with a red card and Modern could handle a full cycle of them. Horizon Canopy is very strong but I don't see the problem with giving the effect to all colors.

It's a pretty amazing card. The price should go down slightly when it rotates from Standard but I expect it to keep seeing play in every other format. The only one that I think it isn't played in is Legacy.

The coolest thing I've seen with Walking Ballista so far is using it as a kill in the bomberman (Auriok Salvagers+Black Lotus or LED) combo. Ballista is both an artifact with cmc 1 or less and an infinite mana outlet that wins the game. Some Vintage Bomberman decks have used it and it's definitely relevant in EDH too since with LED you discard your hand but Salvagers can return the Ballista. You can use it for removal in the earlygame and even in your graveyard it is still a combo piece.

Hey Guys, me and my playgroup are just getting into edh and Im looking to build a UW deck. now I know from previous experience that my playgroup is very cutthroat, and we have all set a budget of around 300 dollars for our edh decks.

Keeping in mind that this will be multiplayer with tryhards, is grand arbiter augustin IV or brago king eternal a stronger general? Ive already built an augustin deck on tappedout, happy for any suggestions from more seasoned players:

They're both good. Augustin is probably better in a cutthroat environment while Brago is more of a pubstomper. If everyone playing is bringing a good amount of removal then they will just remove Brago before letting him attack someone.

If you really like blinking and etb effects then you could still go for Brago but you have to build him more seriously with less value and more protection.

>> No.54328252

Check the seller's site, or wherever you bought it from. They might have a clause pertaining to incorrect shipments, but in all likelihood, legally, it's their fault for not realizing it. Possession is nine tenths of the law and all that. Morally, you should report the mistake, and if you want a totally clean conscience then you should return it. I wouldn't, and even if I did I'd try and get store credit and shipping costs.

Yes this was my initial feeling as well, he would just get poe or condemned or whatever, completely screwing the gameplan.

I somehow cant fully understand why everyone says brago is so strong, I mean it seems good on paper, but if youre in a multiplayer setting with even semi- serious decks I fail to see how he could ever go off.

Dont get me wrong, he seems strong and most of all very fun to play, but still.

You're running Darksteel Mutation. Why is that card good? Because without enchantment removal, whatever you put it on is gone. Just out of the game. It's 0/1, so it can't do damage, it's got no abilities, and it's indestructible. Kill Brago and he's coming back in a turn or two, maybe with Swiftys or Greaves. Make it so that he can't do damage and now your opponent has to waste permanent resources to get him active again.

Yeah, also imprisoned in the moon (admittedly worse than darksteel, but similar effect.)

>>54328559
I see your point. However, what I meant to say was that brago often seems reliant on quickly gaining the upper hand; if the table recieves some more time to stabilize and prepare for a swing from him, I do feel it would become much tougher for the brago player to establish total dominance.

>> No.54328590

>>54328577
This is true. Song of the Dryads / Imprisoned in the moon are better because lands are hard to deal with, but 'destroy all nonland permanents' or 'destroy all lands' still hits them. Darksteel mutation is still a really good answer to most commander-reliant decks(like atraxa) and should be run if you and your group don't mind stepping on toes to win a game.

>> No.54328914

>>54328590
They're also part of the best combo, the one that lets you perma-fuck opposing commanders.

De-creatureize the commander with Song or Moonjail. Artifact them with Mycosynth Lattice or Liquimetal. Make them an equipment with Bludgeon Brawl. Equip to a token with Magnetic Theft on a stick or Grip of Phyresis or something. Phase the token out: Vodalian Hypnotist will do it. Token ceases to exist and since the commander phased out indirectly they never come back. It's pretty much 100% too much effort to ever be technically worth it but if you pull it off you can walk away from the game with a moral victory no matter the results. Easier, but requiring an opponent misplay, you could return-at-EoT flicker a commander then drop Sundial of the Infinite or otherwise end the turn to fuck the return trigger, but that's not QUITE as eternally gone as phased out indirectly by a token.
