    amulet bloom is a VERY hard deck to pilot

    just give it time and a bunch of practice

    So I may have ordered cards to play some Standard Goblins.

    You know, maybe.

    Reading about various folks Hall of Fame ballots and all I've really learned is that Jon Finkel is a goddamn curmudgeon.

    His Gamers Helping Gamers scholarship is dope as all hell, but he comes across as a darned old codger doomed to be a coot, salty about every last thing.

    http://sales.starcitygames.com//deckdatabase/displaydeck.php?DeckID=87901

    so i saw this list from chicago and it ticks a couple of buttons for me.

    grixis.
    dragons.

    ... i guess those are all of my buttons.

    I think I might stick it together just to break up the nonstop abzan happening at my local shop, since I'm only missing the red/blue temples.

    At some point though, I really need to sit down with the new set. at the very least add hangarbacks to every deck.

    I bought a foil hangarback at the prerelease off a dude for $2.

    It is now $15. Well done, me! You did it! And regulars are worth $8 what in the actual fuck?

    pro tour does weird things

    also people think it might play in affinity, which I do not see at all

    it's great in draft. So far it seems pretty great in standard constructed. i could see it in affinity but I don't know what it could possibly replace as a 2 drop. It's most similar to arcbound but I don't know.

    edit: although it would be hilarious to have cranial plating on another guy suddenly turn into lethal by blowing up your own pumped up hangarback

    yeah, it would basically be a 2 drop artifact tukatongue thalid, and no sane person would replace ravager with it

    My buddy is foregoing etched champions to try out hangarbacks, because the synergies with Steel Overseer and Ravager are too good to ignore.

    yeah see I thought about that, but champions straight up win against certain decks

    hangarback does not do that

  • The BetgirlThe Betgirl I'm Molly! Registered User regular
    hangarback dying gives you a nigh-unbeatable cranial plating if you can get a few counters on it, though

    that is 3 pieces to the puzzle and hangarback actually dying

    I'd rather just have an ornithopter, etched champion, and overseer in play than hangarback overseer and thopter

  • PiptheFairPiptheFair Registered User regular
    like, I think hangarback is real good and if decks were 64 cards minimum I would definitely see it in robots, but right now I just don't see it replacing anything efficiently

    the answer is to not play affinity because affinity is bad

    playing affinity in proxy is pretty brutal. but it does seem very single minded toward pumping a cranial plating.

    I still feel good about the grixis deck I'm building, but affinity is probably 2 or 3 on the list to try next.

    Hangarback might fit into kuldotha red, it aims to blow stuff up with shrapnel blast anyway.

    Because Modern players want to try and play it during their opponent's turn.

    Would you put it in the sideboard? It seems better there.

    i've been playing affinity/robots at every opportunity since mirrodin, in every format applicable (except vintage, i guess).
    it's been better and worse. it's not great in legacy, and never has been, though it would be good in an all-control no-combo meta (ie never).
    it goes in and out of style in modern. it becomes possible and impossible in standard from time to time.

  • TryCatcherTryCatcher Registered User regular
    Affinity has been a tier 1 Modern deck since forever, barring exceptions like the lol Cruise meta.

    a guy i know was telling me he's been playing 2 coursers in his scapeshift deck and it doesn't seem like a bad idea, so I might give that a shot tonight for our little wednesday night modern

    Guy I know that's been playing Scapeshift for years has 4 Vinelasher Kudzu in his sideboard as a backup plan. Apparently it occasionally gets some work done? And then makes them board removal back in for game 3?
