Standard bans! Attune with energy, rogue refiner, rampaging ferocidon, ramunap ruins.

Aiming to reduce the dominance of energy and mono-red.

think I need storm the vault for breya! Hope it isn't standard playable.

dinosaurs seem really fun now. You get dumb naya stompyness, but add tribal synergies, also pyrohemia/enrage effects, can build around extra combat steps for ghishath.

Storm the vault is about 3 quid at the moment I think? The hype has dissipated on that one.

Dinosaurs do look great. I remade my Gishnath deck and this time I didn't have to include any junkosauruses.

I might play it with Atraxa. Easy flip followed by double-size Atraxa attacks!

The red/white one is really weird.


Enrage is now worth including enablers for!


This land seems good in any EDH deck that has room for another colourless land:

Hmmm, no enemy-paired rare duals. Just a reprint of those uncommon taplands. Dominaria will have to have something.

At least four new vampires I want to add to Edgar Markov! Probably more.

Yes, dinosaurs have enough proper creatures for a deck now. No need to play the filler ones! There's even an alternate 3-colour commander.


I thought that bg flip land was risky- in case your thing gets exiled or something. but guess in ghave when can just instantly sacrifice whatever!

It's definitely risky if you don't have a sac outlet. But if Ghave's in play it's very hard to stop it from flipping.

The blue/green flipland is good too, but I'm not that fond of the others.

I like Azor the sphinx!

Also, huge dinosaur!

Sorry! I had continuing family issues. And then it was Christmas.

Will update soon.

It's so hard to get an ultimate though! Unless you use doubling season/doubling fish or loads of proliferate, it never happens. Plus it's so tempting to keep using that -3.

The +2 is a bit weak. Ob Nixilis Reignited is better, if you aren't already playing that.

Planeswalker deck Vraska from Rivals:


Use the ultimate, then activate Crypt Rats (it doesn't say combat damage) and kill all opponents at once! Definitely something that could realistically happen.  :icon_lol:

Some unstable cards have multiple versions with different text boxes but the same name and collector number. Very Cryptic Command has at least five (here are some of them).



I like this!

Crow Storm would be fine in EDH at least. I don't see anyone playing Empty the Warrens.

The squirrel lord would be good with Ghave!



Yes, it's worth waiting a couple more weeks for Iconic Masters cards. They should keep dropping.

I need to get Teferis for every blue deck!

Yes. All the 'joke' ones. There's a new set coming out soon.

I do like crow storm though:

Silver-bordered cards are EDH legal until Jan 15!

Hmmm.

"Do you want something to eat, Mortus?" Max says, his face concerned. "You look very tired. Um, you all must be."

They both listen attentively to her story. "A vampire? Holy Sigmar!" Max says. "I wonder how long that thing was down there? Centuries, maybe?"

Ragni shakes his head. "Your human cities always have undead underneath them!"

I believe it looks a little like a showroom.
So when it is bash time, their will be pink lights a specially for you :::cheers:::

That sounds nice!

The party turn away from the barricade and take a longer route back to the Ostmuur district where their inn is located. It's an uneasy journey through streets filled with nervous people, but they arrive safely.

They reach The Salted Salmon later that morning. Inside, they find that Max and Ragni are waiting for them. "I'm so glad you're all all right!" Max says. "Sorry we couldn't wait. Um, we took that man who was a prisoner in the evil temple to the watch station for help, and they arrested us both."

Ragni grins. "Max talked them into letting us go. I wanted to give them a piece of my mind, but I kept my mouth shut and let him handle it! You'd've been proud of me, boss."

"Ah, well, I did convince them we hadn't done anything," Max said, blushing. "Um, the desk sergeant was talking about fines and punishments, but then a patrol brought some looters in and suddenly we weren't considered important any more." He pauses. "We don't really know what's going on in the Paleisbuurt and Goudberg, but it sounds pretty bad."

"Just as well we sorted that elf stuff," Ragni says, "or they'd be in there making things worse!"

Also happy thanksgiving mates!

I hope you had a good time!

It is ground level.
It is about the same space I think.
Well, there seem to be 2 toilets now, so I think a lot better :mrgreen:

Does it have windows? The old one was a bit basementy!

Great photos. Table looks amazing

1am though!

Iconic masters has only been out since Friday, so I think austere command should get cheaper than that! I looked at Teferi earlier and then again just now and there are already newer listings at lower prices.

Yes, the hybrid filters desperately need a reprint. Graven Cairns was a special case because it was one of the Future Sight weird duals, and that's the cycle they put in Iconic Masters. So I don't think it precludes a proper reprint later. They could even put the enemy-paired ones in Rivals, since standard does need another enemy-paired cycle. I'm expecting enemy check-lands though.

Immortal sun seems staple-tastic.
I wish the dinosaur looked more like a dinosaur!

Thanks! Hopefully fine now.

Most prices are heading downward. A lot of the cards were expensive due to low supply rather than demand.

Some good ones for EDH that are already cheaper and should drop further: oblivion stone, graven cairns (nice land for vampire deck!), necropotence, genesis wave, restoration angel.

Cryptic command would need to get a lot cheaper before I'd bother with it.


Also: a couple more Rivals of Ixalan spoilers!

Both amazing.
