RE: Futureproof Strategies
Blood Moon is very good in Legacy, sorta played in Modern and a decent deck in Vintage, its also something you don't need power for.
Here are the modern lists:
One Vintage list,
A million legacy lists,
RE: Huge Old School collection for sale: how to price it right?
Star City is pricing on a gem mint card for their (out of stock) prices, -if they actually had a gem mint card they would sell it for a lot more (A BGS 9.5 lotus is a lot more than 15k, -they would sell an 7 at 15kish).
Look at some of the power they have in stock as an example. They also have a lot of scans for some of those cards.
If your assuming EX- for all your cards the your going to have to factor that in. It will make a difference. I've seen damaged Unl underground sea's around $500, if that's all that TCG has in stock then that's a fine price.
I guess my advice is to factor in condition, people buy from all those sites everyday. Their prices can't be that far off.
RE: Interesting Decknames and Card-nicknames
I know it's not Vintage, but I still can't figure out why they call this Legacy deck here "Nic Fit". Was the creator a chain smoker?? Can't figure it out. Even more mind boggling is "Tin Fins". Why not just call it Dark Depths Reanimator or something to that effect??
"Tin Fins" is named after a Sea-Lab episode that advertises an onion burst entree at a place called "Grisselbees" (Griselbrand). This takes place in an episode about reanimating the characters as sharks that later go on a rampage.
RE: Best Lab Maniac deck?
Y'all are missing the obvious answer.
Every deck should be a Lab Man deck. Put that bad boy in your sideboard and laugh manically as you never lose another Two Card Monte match!
Two Card Monte has pyroblasts though...
RE: Measuring Archetype "Inequality" or metagame balance
Looking at imbalance I would try hard to look at overall win % against the meta opposed to numbers of decks being played. Looking at previous meta results theres some decks that have a very good win % against the meta that are underplayed (big blue). I also think that alot of people enjoy certain play styles and that that contributes to Shops and POs numbers.
I don't think a lopsided meta is necessarily bad if its because people are playing the decks they enjoy! And If theres a card pool change because of it that would be the worst thing for the format.
I know we have win % data for at least 2 data points.
