    @WingedWeasel The tribal scene on MTGO has, as far as I'm aware, basically completely dissolved. There used to be weekly-ish tribal tournaments run by AJ Impy and Winter Wolf. Maybe try to get into contact with one of those folks and see if they know the scoop.

    not sure if this is what became tribal apocalypse. i am pretty sure aj impy used to run that but i don't recognize the name winter wolf.

    My favorite Tribal deck from that era was my Ooze tribe. Turn 3 Manaplasm, turn 4 Pyrokinesis your team, cast either Flame Javelin at your face or Tower Above on my dude and attack for a million. It rarely worked but by God was it fun when it did.

  • cshadow42cshadow42 Registered User regular
    I have an Ooze EDH deck, but it mainly focused on having oozes persisting forever as tokens. More fun than effective, plus I didn't have the Ooze Commander, which also caused it to be less effective.

    I'd wager if today I were to make a Tribal deck to play with dudes I'd make Hydras. There is now enough actual support and good enough Hydras.

    Also...HAIL HYDRA! jokes. I mean, come on!

    Sorry, I just switched computers, and my deck is archived somewhere deep. I can give it a shot, though I wouldn't hold your breath.

    Heck, I've got physical cards going back to The Dark. I don't know why I've been lugging them around for so long; I need to offload them somehow.

    I am in the same position with things going back to around the dark. I'd love to sell them but dont really have the energy to sit around and catalog it all. Plus I want to recoup something even if it just gets dumped into mtgo.

    Hilariously it's be easier to simply setup my laptop and a desktop thsn to try and build physical decks for people coming over. Unfortunately my online collection isn't as robust, and well the program is frustrating.

    Both are quite cheap.

    Playing Ghave paints a big ass target above your head in EDH because he can trip over himself and suddenly find himself going infinite.

    My tertiary kill condition in my modern "Ideal Prison" deck. Crushing someone with an army of flying 10/10+ pegasus tokens is good times, but Purphoros usually gets the job done faster. (My #1 kill condition is still concession.)

    Played my Flying Bear Token deck and my +1/+1 B/G deck tonight with a few friends. Got some crazy results and had way too much fun while doing it.

    First my Bear Token deck, I had 33 4/4 bear tokens out on turn like 8 or 9. Didn't draw either of my Archetype of Imaginations, so I lost to my friend playing his Stormtide Leviathan. Still had a blast playing about 8 4/4 bear tokens each turn. Hilarious

    Then I played by +1/+1 counter deck. Won that game and ended it with me having a 6/6 Corspejack Menace, 12/12 Spiritmonger, 42/42 Spiritmonger with lifelink and a 58/58 Necropolis Regent. I was hamming it up pretty hard.

    Also regarding MM2015: the judge program basically needs anybody who can judge, scorekeep, gopher, or otherwise support Vegas to volunteer. It is gonna be huge and they need a ton of help.

    To be fair, anything over 5000 players is technically two Grands Prix.
