ARE YOU A FIRST TIMER INTERESTED IN PLAYING MAGIC THE GATHERING?!?!
I highly recommend you get Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013, it is cheap and available on several gaming platforms, including Steam and the iPad
This game covers all the basics and most advanced tactics of Magic the Gathering. Even Brian Kibler himself couldn't teach you how to play magic better than this game, it is very fun and very simple! SO GO BUY IT!
After playing this game you will definitely want some real live cardboard in your greasy hands, and the people in this thread will be more than happy to assist you in your new found TCG addiction and instruct you best on how to march into your local games store and ask to see their trade binders like a pro.
Happy tapping :D

R/U in the hooooooooooouse, get ready for Dragon's Maze, this set should certainly be a-MAZE-ing

    The Rats one? I was thinking mind rot + shrieking affliction. And using morbid, so tragic slip for removal, and some other removals.

    I need Soul Tithe and Ethereal Armor and Sphere of Safety

    Doorkeeper is exactly the kind of thing I was hoping to see here, though sadly it seems to only be him and the mana guy

    Grave Betrayal is something I need to find a way to cheat in immediately

    this set just keeps looking better and I really wanna play limited here as much as I can

    I'm still trying to absorb all these cards
    The Rakdos hybrid mana 1 drop uncommon seems so garbage compared to its counterparts
    The naturalize with populate is nuts as all nuts
    Soulsworn Spirit voted card art most likely to appear in my nightmares and murder me
    Common Bond for sweetest artwork
    Love the land enchantments cycle for limited
    Axebane Stag, the common giant deer that can fight Rakdos and live

    There are so many cards that just do things
    Lobbercrew, Streetsweeper, will I ever make full use of thee in limited? And how awesome will it be?!

  • drp527drp527 We sacrifice our own That more may rise in their placeRegistered User regular
    the only thing I don't like about having all of these cards spoiled is that now chances are we won't be getting anything new from official spoilers until the whole set shows up in a week

    but I think that's offset by how much I love everything we've been shown so far

    I can't remember for how cards that decrease cost of spells by 1 colorless interact with spells with X in their casting cost

    Because right now it looks like Goblin Electromancer doesn't have much to interact with besides epic experiment

    you can put the cost reduction towards the X cost unless there's a requirement on what kind of mana can be used for X (like on Soul Burn)

    basically you announce what you want the X to be, which will set the spell's cmc while on the stack to X+any other mana in the cost, at which point cost reductions can be applied

    so if you say you want X to be 1, it would cost 1UR which Electromancer would turn into UR with an X still being evaluated as 1 on the card

    actually you might be able to put it in even with a requirement since X is still technically colorless and you're not really spending mana, just reducing the cost

    Yea, this is basically the only reason the alternate method of casting announcement is still legal.
    drp527 wrote: »

    If an alternate cost or evaluation applies, the -1 will be treated as a null value (possibly making the use of the cost reducer invalid on a card-by-card basis), but generally yes, you can use it for any X spell as long as you pay all associated costs. In the case of Soul Burn, the spell would still do 1 more damage, but your amount of life gain is limited because B was not spent for that extra 1 damage.
    601.2b If the spell is modal the player announces the mode choice (see rule 700.2). If the player
    wishes to splice any cards onto the spell (see rule 702.44), he or she reveals those cards in his or
    her hand. If the spell has alternative, additional, or other special costs that will be paid as it’s
    being cast such as buyback, kicker, or convoke costs (see rules 116.8 and 116.9), the player
    announces his or her intentions to pay any or all of those costs (see rule 601.2e). A player can’t
    apply two alternative methods of casting or two alternative costs to a single spell. If the spell has
    a variable cost that will be paid as it’s being cast (such as an {X} in its mana cost; see rule
    107.3), the player announces the value of that variable. If a cost that will be paid as the spell is
    being cast includes hybrid mana symbols, the player announces the nonhybrid equivalent cost
    he or she intends to pay. Previously made choices (such as choosing to cast a spell with
    flashback from a graveyard or choosing to cast a creature with morph face down) may restrict
    the player’s options when making these choices.

    601.2e The player determines the total cost of the spell. Usually this is just the mana cost. Some
    spells have additional or alternative costs. Some effects may increase or reduce the cost to pay,
    or may provide other alternative costs. Costs may include paying mana, tapping permanents,
    sacrificing permanents, discarding cards, and so on. The total cost is the mana cost or alternative
    cost (as determined in rule 601.2b), plus all additional costs and cost increases, and minus all
    cost reductions. If the mana component of the total cost is reduced to nothing by cost reduction
    effects, it is considered to be {0}. It can’t be reduced to less than {0}. Once the total cost is
    determined, any effects that directly affect the total cost are applied. Then the resulting total cost
    becomes “locked in.” If effects would change the total cost after this time, they have no effect.

    ^ just for reference if anyone cares.

    depending on what format you're running this in (and by extension what soldiers you have to work with) I'd think the playstyle would be fairly aggressive, since it's essentially a white weenie deck with tribal bonuses

    you'd want to get as much out as you could, within reason (counter spells, bounce, and removal are all things to consider because if they boardwipe after you drop everything you're pretty much done) and swarm through their defenses while leaving up a few of your own

    Vigilance from Captain of the Watch helps greatly with this, and if this is something that's not specifically built for standard Mobilization would also aid greatly in being able to go offensive while still being defensive
