    So I've been testing my morph deck and I actually like it a lot. I especially like that it doesn't really depend on BFZ, either.

    C'mon, how can you say you don't want to manifest and blink back some Eldrazi?

    I know I'm not part of the cool kids clique, but I have enough Fallen Empires cards to not want to be interested in doing this. Or nailing my dick to a board either, cause both are about equally fun.

    I managed to get into Magic at the right time for Christmas presents of cards to consist of Fallen Empires (a box), Homelands, and Chronicles. Sadly I was never gifted any Ice Age or Alliances or even 4th Edition.

    I'm thinking of building Living End while I work on getting cards for Modern Merfolk (and Affinity... and maybe Infect... I have a problem).

    Here's the current temur list i'm testing, after I added wild slashes + changed a few numbers. I think radiant flames + secret plans is gonna work out as a lot of one sided wraths post-board for me against elf and aggro decks.

    3 Ire Shaman
    3 Rattleclaw Mystic

    3 Wild Slash
    4 Obscuring AEther
    3 Secret Plans
    2 Temur Charm

    Lands (23)
    1 Evolving Wilds
    2 Mountain
    2 Yavimaya Coast
    3 Forest
    3 Wooded Foothills
    4 Frontier Bivouac
    4 Island
    2 Cinder Glade
    2 Lumbering Falls

    Sideboard (15)
    3 Radiant Flames
    2 Disdainful Stroke
    2 Plummet
    2 Reality Shift

    So blue is right out of my standard range since Jace is 40 bucks now. I'm probably just going to get a couple more cards and have atarka red landfall crap as my standard deck, although something jundy looks nice.

    To be honest, Fallen Empires is a really fun sealed set, it's just got a really low power level. Really low power level is A-okay if everyone's on the same shitty level! Back in like 2001 we did a $20 buy-in, get a box of Fallen Empires and build a deck sealed. 95% of people were on black or white. Meanwhile, I had 4 Dwarven Catapults...

    I trusted you

    because when I win I get more money to spend on magic

    and because w/g didn't get anything in bfz that would make up for the loss of fleeceemane lion so I need a third color

    blue doesn't do much to shore up the weakness of the deck and it seemed like I could never get a good draw with that bant list I was testing

    red gives me access to burn but all the best burn cards are now RR and I don't want to go that heavily into it. Also wooded foothills are expensive

    that leaves black which gives me one of the best creatures in standard and access to some powerful sideboard options

    like I said, I sold out

    @Taramoor as the only person I interact with who is even remotely connected with WOTC, I'm blaming you if Hedron Crab isn't in Oath

  • KilroyKilroy timaeusTestified Registered User regular
    hedron crab being in oathgate would be a flavor failure because people know what the hedrons do now

  • KwoaruKwoaru Confident Smirk Flawless Golden PecsRegistered User regular
    Yeah but now the hedron crab has it jammed into it's shell

    and then the flavor text is different

    Considering I make it a mission to build decks around non-damage win conditions, with a focus on Mill, you can bet that if I had any power over anything Hedron Crab would be in every set.

    If Hedron Crab doesn't get reprinted, I guess I'll have to latch onto an Ensaring Bridge reprint next.

    Because they are expensive.

    ONDU, Zendikar - The Zendikar Defense Force rounded up all the crabs on the plane yesterday and confiscated their hedrons. In a statement released shortly before he and his family were eaten by Eldrazi, spokesman Noyan Dar made reference to their "stupid, dumb dumb baby brains" as just cause for robbing the crabs.
