    Didn't know about the deck builder site, thanks big grin

    So my Cinder deck is complete, and since I got most of those cards for a quarter, I decided to buy a booster pack or two. Got a Red Elemental that doubles the damage of any Red Sorcery I cast, and Duel Casting (Tap a creature, pay a Red, copy any sorcery or instant spell you cast); I can turn a two mana 3 damage spell into a three mana 12 damage nuke.

    Nice one dude! Oh, if you're a fan of populate, you should check out the Strength of Selesnya event deck for the rares alone.

    Sweet, didn't know that, thanks big grin

    My elemental deck has been completely bought, just waiting for the cards to come in through the mail.

    I figure I'll put together a Black and a White (Two separate) Knight Decks, so I can show friends of mine how to play, card synergies, and similar.

    And I could be evil and throw in Knights of the Hokey Pokey when I'm showing a certain female friend the game Hurrah

    Hi all, I love MTG! I used to play irl a fair bit but then stopped because it was getting expensive...

    Emergence and I have played MTGO a few times, and you can thank us 2 for the various MTG avatars floating around the forums (It should be noticeable since we have realistic stuff and didnt go all YOLO with OP creatures that cost a bazillion mana)

    Anyway! Below are some of my faves...

    Favourite planeswalker and art...

    Magic the Gathering, There has to be others who play :D - Page 2 Image

    There are many cost efficient creatures, but I always enjoyed using these 3

     Magic the Gathering, There has to be others who play :D - Page 2 Image
     Magic the Gathering, There has to be others who play :D - Page 2 Image

    My favourite creature card art has to be...

    Part of my favourite block as well, Alara / conflux / Alara reborn and the Esper colours had some great sphinx cards... This being my fave...


    Magic the Gathering, There has to be others who play :D - Page 2 Image



    My favourite sorcery would have to be ...

    Its a slow, and painful end to anyone when suspended... The look on someones face when they try to keep cool... Whilst having to sacrifice something every 2 turns to keep it going off, or bite the bullet and lose half of their stuff twisted 

    Magic the Gathering, There has to be others who play :D - Page 2 Image   


    A special mention goes to the Eldrazi of the Zendikar block, I absolutely loved finding ways to cheat these guys out early in the game, and the story behind them was great

    I am a bit behind the curve since I was last most active in the Mirrodin block.  I am presently taking a look through standard to see what is new.  The Ravnica set is more or less new to me and the new core as well.

    Grave Titan, proving that Magic the Gathering is the most Metal TCG out there right now.

    Who do I have to talk to to get myself Planeswalkered?

    Also, how do you share builds made on the Deckbuilder? I can't find an export button anywhere.

    That was the promo grave titan art, you got one from a local store if you purchased the xbox arcade magic game, and I won the other 3 + a set of 4 phyrexian obliterators in a tourney... Those 8 cards in ma dack made it a very scary one twisted 

    I started playing just after the Alara block cycled out Murgence, which was a shame since I loved the look of the 3 colour stuff. Most of my IRL playing was during zendikar and mirrodin cycle

    I made the cards for Murgence and I... But its only really easy for people you know, so the stuff can be matched up etc... You can just google search "MTG card maker" and go from there?

    Don't worry E, last I played was the Mirrodin block as well so I can't play any of my familiar cards or decks in Standard sad But that's where Modern comes in!

    It is expensive, I don't really buy boosters anymore. I buy what I need for decks. It ranges from 50-200 usd a deck most times, but thats way cheaper than buying boosters untill I get what I need.

    It helps that I don't play standard because its way more expensive. Modern and EDH are most of my matches.

    Modern is less restricted anyway and allows for more themed deck building.

    I remember someone asking how to share a deck with the MTG Deck Builder:
    From the homepage, click profile, you'll see a bar on the left with different options, hit deck, then click the link for your deck. Share that link.

    This is what my current B/R beatdown looks like(with the cards I currently own):

    Den thanks for linking the card list on that g/w event deck. After looking through it, turns out I was on my way to building that deck on my own so this will save me some time!

    http://www.mtgdeckbuilder.net/Decks/ViewDeck/705294

    My black Knight deck; uses Haakon (Who has Champions Helm for Hexproof and Darksteel Plate for Indestructable) to bring the Knights back from the dead over and over, along with Disciples to give me life, Priests to give me Demons, and Reaper to deal some nice damage.

    Put Dead-Iron Sledge and Nemesis Mask on any of the knights, wipe out every monster the opponent has, march the rest down and hit the guy. Banshee's Blade allows me to keep growing stronger as the game goes on, despite my creatures constantly dying.

    Magebane Armor and Kite Shields allow me to sacrifice a knight with the Disciple to give me +12 life a turn, Crypt Ghast supplying the mana for it.

    Anything I should change? Also, not quite sure what to use my last three cards on.

    No problem! The deck could use some tweaking to really take advantage of it(stuff like gaining life for your tokens, removing those bloody Doomed Travelers, more powerhouses that gain power/toughness for every creature you control, etc).

    Well, I don't know if you accidentally categorised it as Standard or not, but that deck isn't really Standard legal. For now, the blocks that are legal in Standard are:
    Innistrad
    Dark Ascension
    Avacyn Restored
    Magic 2013
    Return to Ravnica
    Gatecrash
    Dragon's Maze (effective May 3, 2013)
    Magic 2014 (effective July 19, 2013)

    So you'd have to drop:
    Black Knight
    Haakon
    Phyrexian Crusader
    Nemesis Mask
    Dead-Iron Sledge
    Darksteel Plate
    Greatsword
    Buried Alive
    Banshee's Blade
    Champion's Helm
    Konda's Banner
    Magebane Armor
    Kite Shield
    Sword of Light and Shadow

    If you're playing Modern you'd have to drop:
    Buried Alive
    Champion's Helm

    Aye. I was first putting it together, then I realized the enchantments I had in it were pretty much worthless since they would be dying a lot, and I didn't want to splash green for Rancor. Logically, decided to go with equipment.

    Also, visited the store today, picked up two of these;

    Just got out of a match against a friend who used his zombie deck.  It was a bit fuzzy, but it ended with him having 339 10/10 Levitating zombie tokens on the field.

    Pay 1/bl/bk for Mill To Damage this turn.

    Have Mind Crank out.

    Mill 1 card; they take 1 damage. Because they took a damage, they Mill a card. Because they milled a card, they take 1 damage. Because they took a damage, they mill 1 card etc etc etc.

    Mind Crank procs the other guys ability as long as I payed for it, which in turn procs Mind Crank. This is in my Mill Deck as well, so I have Horrifying Realization and other cheap Mill cards.

    Magic the Gathering, There has to be others who play :D - Page 2 Image 




    My brother's zombie deck is ludicrous like that, as well. I think he had 1000 zombies one time, and his friend had ~2000 life, and they just called it a draw because of how neither of them could make a move on the other. I don't know how either of them did it.
