I appreciate that the emphasis in all of these is on the fun that was had. There are so many places to get information about strategic content, but so little, relatively, about the great parts of our community.

hmm, I guess if you have karn main, I would rather have 1 sideboard? Since they are pretty close to each other in functionality. It depends on the deck though.

So both those are reasonable if you read the meta right. I would also say that depending on what budget means (0-proxy vs 5-10 proxy vs infinite proxy) and also how much money is budget for you ($400 vs $1000 vs anything but power/shops/bazaars) makes a big difference in answers to this question.

In general I would tend toward unpowered blue deck over something like red prison in vintage? In a 5-proxy meta I would do this every time (3 mox/lotus 1 time walk 1 ancestral, and the rest of the deck is legacy cards).

Yeah i can't imagine tinkering for this over citadel. Value tinkering is not a thing that most people have done historically.

Someone brought up the fact that this is hit by Force of Vigor and the X mana X/X eldrazi isn't while also being immune to dack. Sure can't be cast off of shop, but that card saw basically 0 play.

This card in the best case costs UUU for draw a card next turn and 2 more 2 turns from now. This does not seem remotely vintage playable to me.

I think this is a more typical setup for bye producing last minute tourneys, outside of ew.

I think this card + PO/hurkyl's as an engine seems stronger than anything you will be doing in legacy. I do think it will have an impact in legacy though.

@wfain said in [ELD] Emry, Lurker of the Loch:

Side note: I’m not sure why PO has never looked into 1-2 copies of Ascendency?

I think they just don't need it, and also the critical mass of free spells/cheap +CA spells to trigger it has gone down. When gush and dig were still legal along with 4 probe, there were some versions of the deck that could even hang with the shops deck of the time a bit.

Now, however, what would it be replacing that isn't already doing something better. Plus it pulls you into a 3rd or 4th color depending on the build.

Cute with LED, Lotus, Petal, Mox Opal, also maybe just like walking ballista. Really cute with jeskai ascendancy.

Note can be cast turn 1 off of petal + land.

LED, in particular is cute because you can discard the thing you want to cast and pay for it.

The "problem" with abusing this with voltaic key, is if you have voltaic key and mana don't you just get time vault? You don't need to tutor twice.

@p3temangus said in [ELD] Mystical Dispute:

The interaction with painter is way to significant to ignore. It may only see play in 1 deck but may push that deck from relative obscurity to a deck that can steal weekly challenges and league 5-0s.

This card has to be worse than red blasts 1-8 in painter though right? Do you have room for 9+ of that effect? IN all the old build of painter i played i struggled to play more than 4 and even with MM restricted I can't imagine playing more than 6-7.

I don't think you ever keep a hand with no bazaar and this though, the chances are pretty bad that you hit. Like if you keep a 7 with no bazaar you hit < 35% of the time.

Is this better than flusterstorm in a counter war?

posted in Vintage Community read more

@thewhitedragon69 Yeah between then and now Force of Vigor and Collector Ouphe were printed. Do you really not see how that might effect shops decks?

I think it is funny that most of the decks playing karn and forge weren't playing sphere. Also, the second to last paragraph, they were talking about bring back necro 4x! I am excited.

Who wants to help me brew fastbond high tide?

What specifically is your goal? Do you want to play at EW and do well enough to earn an unpowered prize? Are you just playing locally? Trying to get a local scene started?

I asked because depending on your location, you may be able to play some number of proxies at proxy events. This is very common in the US. If you are trying to build something to do well at EW, for example, your best bets are probably Colorless Eldrazi or Mono Red Prison in terms of historic performance.

@chubbyrain I would be excited to see a thread started on this list, the deck seemed cool, and made me wonder if maybe Urza had a place in it?

Define critical mass? I think there are exactly two that are better or don't also put large (larger?) constraints on your deck than this. Outcome would be the obvious other, but there is a lot of hate for outcome in the format at the moment (karn, ouphe, narset), only some of which similarly affects this card.
