When opponents make so many obvious misplays . . .
great artical, massive improvement over last week, and while 'budget' may still be an issue to some with even the 'budget' evolution containing 5 rares lands + 3 planeswalkers, I think it's a great value deck for the money.
great artical, massive improvement over last week, and while 'budget' may still be an issue to some with even the 'budget' evolution containing 5 rares lands + 3 planeswalkers, I think it's a great value deck for the money.This deck is most certainly a budget deck, Jace has had so many printings that getting a few should be a cakewalk, and the rare lands are hardly difficult to acquire. If your budget can't handle $20~30, why are you even playing Magic? The entire freaking deck can't be nothing but uncommons and commons if it wants to be mildly competetive.
I've played the budget deck and modified it myself (but only added one Fat Mama) and I'd like to add:A far better combo with Vatmother is Consuming Vapors. It's just obscene for your opponent when they need a chump blocker for vatmother and you can win the game with that spell. They suddenly have to draw and play TWO chump blockers, because of the rebound. And yes, it's in the deck!It was absolutely adorable how many Mirran Crusaders were eaten alive by Fat Mama as she swang in for the kill.Also, one game was hysterical when I ate no less than 6 chumps with consume the meek (on my turn) before attacking with her. quest doesn't like this deck!
This deck is pretty tight. But I see a few flaws:ONE] He did not include Phyrexian Crusader.TWO] He did not include Plague Stinger.THREE] He did not include Phyresis for the non infectors.FOUR] He did not test it enough.
Phyresis is for the Creeping Tar Pits. Doh!

Trolljuju wiped the sweat from his brow as he continued his slow trudge up the snowy mountain. The wind was strong and fiercely cold, but he pressed against it. Juju knew Beast Engine was somewhere at the peak, waiting for him. But this was not a matter of confronting the forces of nature themselves; that had been accomplished long before, and was now too easy to maintain the manly man's interest. Today, Beast Engine was here waiting for a friend.
Trolljuju's mind drifted from his appointment to thoughts of Beast Engine's manliness. The only man in history to punch the fossilized remains of a dinosaur back to life just to punch it to death again. The man who deflected bullets with his pectoral muscles during his daily assassination attempts. The man who cured cancer with a serum made from pure crystalized virility. The man who burst with vigor. Not just a man but a Man- the manliest of all men. A god of masculinity in physical form.
Trolljuju's heart fluttered at the memory of him and lightened his steps as he pressed on.
Suddenly, he was shaken from his reverie by a deep, powerful rumble in the mountain that shook him to his core. Instinctively, he threw himself to the ground just before the slope ahead of him exploded in a fiery wall of light and heat. So great was the force that the entire upper section of the mountain was vaproized. It scorched Juju's coat, then rose on the air to drift far away, a plume of white-hot ash. When Trolljuju lifted his head to see what was left behind, he beheld a wide, perfectly flat stone plateau, and in the distance he could see a muscular figure, his foot still held up from the kick. There was no doubt it was Beast Engine.
As soon as the ground beneath him cooled, Juju cast his heavy pack aside and ran. As the figure grew with closeness, he could see Beast Engine was nude, as was expected. The snow that fell near him turned to a thin wall of steam, looking to Trolljuju's eyes like a barrier. Engine was too strong, too manly to occupy the same space as the ordinary universe. He lived in a world all his own. But fortunately for Juju, it was only an illusion. He ran at full speed into Engine, who caught him with both arms and effortlessly twirled with him, resting with Juju dipped low to the ground in Engine's arms.
"Beast Engine, my love," Trolljuju breathed, sturck with awe at Engine's masculine beauty despite the familiarity of his face.
Engine just smiled, radiating from every inch of him with incredible strength, yet gentle warmth.
"It's been so long, Juju. I've missed you."
"Forgive me. I lost contact with you while you were boxing with Death to win back and consume the soul of Theodore Roosevelt. But now I'm here..."
Juju lifted one tentative hand to Engine's face, but he pulled away.
"You know I cannot give you what you seek. Were we to make love, your body would be destroyed by the force."
"I know, of course I would," Juju responded, tears in his eyes. "May I have, at least, one kiss?"
"Very well. For you, my friend."
Slowly, gingerly, they came closer. But the moment their lips met, a flood of unbridled manliness rushed into Trolljuju, body and soul, and every cell in his body exploded.
Beast Engine fell to his knees, and in his grief, he wept. The tears that fell from his face burned deep into the rock beneath him. But slowly, his sorrow turned to conviction.
He beat the crap out of Death once. He could do it again.
Phyresis is for the Creeping Tar Pits. Doh!Tainted Strike is better for that, Phyresis would just fall off when it turns back into a land
