Are Elven Archers really sharing the same table as Underground Sea? It's bad enough they share the same decade.

Hmmmm slight problem. It's a combo deck but one that needs lots of permanents. This is why Psychatog is one of the best creatures ever.  :'(

First attempt: http://www.zshare.net/download/57865928ca4cd013/ (MWS format)

-----------------------------

1. There are probably 2 too many fetchlands right now. Worse comes to worse they can just be left out to sac to the 'tog but it's inefficient to waste space like that.
2. Not really a control deck but it needs at least one 4x set of counters. Not enough blue to make Force of Will's viable. Mana Drain?
3. Need another resurrection spell. Preferably one that can do multiple targets at once.
4. Aura Thief is kinda superfluous until I can find the spell from #3 but it's too cool to steal all your opponents permanents and then use them to feed your win condition. That and it makes it all but certain the 'tog will get to swing to the dome cleanly.
5. Not as fast a combo deck as I'd like. Mana acceleration?

I'm in the process of transcribing decks onto AnyCraze.  TCC, if you can host, when I get to Bloodwake's I'd be up for a few games.  I don't know if I'd be able to host there or not though.  I've got Appr and MWS on my lappy.

Top 4 decks from PT Kyoto:

WUBRG Control (overall winner): http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?o0nxbh00yjo
WB Tokens (2nd place): http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?jgtlyd3kdnd
WR Reveillark: http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?j24gjtqg0m3
WUBG Dark Bant: http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?jnnqjno3cmn

Lotta white  :yuck

Reveillark seems like a nice fit for the Auratog deck though!

They've been pretty liberal with the multicolor stuff for a while now. This is kind of the apex of it I think. I imagine the days of all 8 pain lands being in the base set are numbered.

What is Xblob 180 Boat Game playing?

For you...

Elf ball: Too many janky Elves. Channelball can probably get axed.
Psychatog: Your mana base could be a lot more creative. 4x Deltas, Underground rivers and seas, etc. Have a toolbox in your sideboard and use Cunning Wish to get at it. Drop the Isochrons and non-Tog creatures. 4x Brainstorm. Run some Intuitions. Drop the edicts for counters and / or low CC discard.

Eh, I pulled my head out of my ass and clicked HD.   :lol

I would love to start playing some tourney legal decks, but I don't know what's legal, and for how long.  I want to start playing some FNM around here, since I just found a place that's about 30-45 mins away that I could play at.  You guys wanna help me throw together a decent T2 deck?  I have the merfolk mill deck, but I've been told that it wouldn't last.  And honestly, after seeing the shit that's in current decks, it wouldn't.  Volcanic Fallout?  Good night merfolk.

Man, actually coming up with an idea is going to be my issue though.  I don't know squat about the new sets really.  But, Bloodwake, BillyOfCourse, me, and our local Magic guru are getting together today to discuss some deck archtypes.  We're going to try to build four decks that we can take to tourneys and hopefully take 1-4 on.  I just dread buying these cards.  It's gonna break me, haha.

I know it's not a fun idea, but my best advice would be don't try to reinvent the wheel.  There have been lots of people out there screwing around with constructed ideas for these cards for quite a while now- chances are pretty slim that you're gonna have a brand new insight that will be effective against top decks, which is what you'll be playing against at any tourney.  Find an existing top archetype/deck that you are comfortable with, maybe tweak it around a bit, and play that.

I don't know which websites list the top decks in the tourney scene anymore, tho.

The Bust half of Boom // Bust is Armageddon! Just in the "right" color and for an extra 2 colorless.  :'(

Been thinking more about the Enchanted Evening deck and I don't like Auratog as the win condition. Right now I'm toying with Sneak Attack ---> Aura Thief ---> Donate ---> Aura Barbs. If I could pull something like that off it'd be sheer hilarity.

I know I need to just find an existing archtype, but deciding what to play is going to be my downfall.  I like the green/red idea, but I wouldn't know what to put in it.  I've been so out of the scene that I'm not sure.  I may price some of the PT Kyoto decks....

You seem to like absurd combos as win conditions, which while cool usually isn't feasible.  Hasn't worked since... gosh, Prosperous-Bloom?  Man that deck was a fucking blast to play.  4th turn drain life for 28 coming at your dome, sir!

Illusions-Donate  :shh

Speaking of Pros-Bloom, I was thinking of a format we could dick around in where most of the cards would be familiar but none of us could really netdeck and the power level wouldn't be warped by a card or two. (I don't really want to be an amateur DCI manager.) I came up with the tentatively-titled "1996". How does it work? You're only allowed to use cards from the two sets printed in that year. (For reference that is Alliances and Mirage.) Mirage is large, stand alone set so we shouldn't miss having an edition and without the adjoining sets (Ice Age and Visions respectively) that had distinguished mentally-challenged fellowed power cards we shouldn't have to worry about bannings, at least initially.

I'm actually really hyped to fuck around with it if any of you are interested.

Fifth has two serious problems with it.

1. Color hate. Obviously it's important to have this to a certain degree, but Fifth is very much an old set in its excessiveness wrt it.
2. Necro. Might not be as big a problem withou... who am I kidding.  :lol

Ok, I created a deck in the 5E-AL-MI constructed format we're screwing around with on Apprentice.  We'll see how it works.

After screwing around with the card bases, I would suggest that we think about going to a potential 4E-IA-AL-CS (coldsnap, brah) or 5E-MI-VI-WL format, as those blocks are made to work well together.  Just a thought.  But if anyone wants to play a game on apprentice, let me know.  Of course, then I'll have to figure out how to play a game on Apprentice, but I guess that's part of the fun.

I also have MWS installed, too.

Fourth has some cards I don't want to deal with. Including new sets adds synergy but also lets people netdeck and I wanted everyone to have to at least be semi-original with this as it's just for fun.

But the year is young! Can't wait for FE-HLD-LGD constructed.  8)

So, I had nearly talked myself into building the type 2 faerie deck I'd been considering for a week or so when I was informed that a bunch of the cards I'd be ordering will be phased out in the fall.  This kind of sucks as I don't want to waste money on a type 2 deck I can only use for a few months.  Back to the drawing board I suppose.

I'm down for whatever, tho, and would gladly play some type 2 with folks.  I'd just snag some decks off of a site and dump 'em into apprentice, whatever.

Checking this Magic Workshop download out now.

I also made an MTGO account after reading up on how the 'Pauper' format- an all-commons format that I use to play back in the day in the local tallahassee scene - is now formally recognized by the system (meaning you can set up games where decks have to meet the format) and there are like four free player run events per week. So I've been playing there with a $3 white weenie deck and having a good time.

tehjaybo and i just split two games on mws, it was quite fun despite the fact that i'm rusty as balls.  our first game took over an hour, in which we accidentally played mirror decks against each other.  not fun.  the second... well, it took about 8 minutes and i had my way with his elves like they were tijuana crack whores

edit- lol beaten

frag- i'd be down for some pauper on mws sometime.

Fourth has some cards I don't want to deal with. Including new sets adds synergy but also lets people netdeck and I wanted everyone to have to at least be semi-original with this as it's just for fun.

But the year is young! Can't wait for FE-HLD-LGD constructed.  8)

So, I had nearly talked myself into building the type 2 faerie deck I'd been considering for a week or so when I was informed that a bunch of the cards I'd be ordering will be phased out in the fall.  This kind of sucks as I don't want to waste money on a type 2 deck I can only use for a few months.  Back to the drawing board I suppose.
It'll still be playable in Extended. At least at some point. (Very few Standard decks don't survive that transition.) Only problem there is that the only people that play that format are professionals.

edit: Still trying to figure out the deck I want to play but I'll have one ready on MWS tonight.

I created a deck in the format you guys said, and it works okay..  It sure makes me long for the newer cards that do so much more though.   :-\  I'm running red it looks like!

We should do a different block each week, and have a tournament on like, friday or saturday or something.  Like cycle blocks, and that kind of thing. 

Something else to think about would be putting in some kind of wager on a tournament, like some junk rare or something.  Anyone interested in that?  Each person putting in like, a junk rare, or a few uncommons, or like 10 commons.  It would be a way to learn even more cards, as well as working on collections and new sets.  That's just a side idea though.  I really would like to try a tournament, and play some more.  The MWS games last night with TCC were awesome.  GGs again, btw, TCC.

jaybo- i'm down for more games later if you are.  I built a fun T2 deck based off of a new deck concept called "AIG".  Muahahaha.  Also ready for some 5E-AL-MI.

Yeah, I'm down for when I get home, about 3 hours from now.  I'm gonna have to go and do some of the dreaded netdecking though...  :(  I need some good T2 ideas.  I'd like to build a decent T2 deck.  The one we were playing last night was pretty good.  If I can find a good one for fairly cheap, I'll prolly build it and tourney play it around here.

I was actually thinking about a rotating system on the metro. My idea was to take one expansion from three sets (preferably from different eras) but I'm cool with just regular blocks. I pretty much netdecked my entire playing career so that would just make things easier for me.  8)

lol nice. 

I never really did netdecking, per se..  what I did was get ideas of archtypes from friends who talked them up, found the core cards, then built around them.  But they were all very cookie-cutter...  (Red/Green Mad Beats from Odyssey, how much more cookie-cutter can you get?)

I'm up for any kind of blocking.  Looking through the cards gives me a better understanding of the older stuff, which I'm always looking for, because I could never get into older sets.  They just bother me because of confusing wording and better versions in new sets.  But, then again, you find some jewels too.  Four damage for free?  Yes please.  6 for 3?  You got it.
