How many of each basic land you ended up with, Mega? Also, I think it's a good idea for everyone to include this information when posting builds for this deck.

Mastergear_Owen's take on Magic 2014 Campaign.

Show
You know what I've got more issues. Whats up with the story in this game? The adverts said I was going to team up with Chandra and we were going to kick butt and chew bubblegum across the planes on a revenge campaign against some... guy she knew I guess? Who's Ramaz anyway? What do I get instead? I beat Chandra like 2 minutes in with a mono-green stompy thing Garruk gave me (why does he keep giving all these new planeswalkers his deck) and then I spent like 5 hours jumping from plane to plane picking up random nicknacks for her mantlepiece while she sits back back doing her nails or something. I was thrown in jail! I got hit by a Roil Storm twice! Do you know how many rats are on Ravnica, Chandra? All of them! All of the rats! All of the rats eating me!

Then we go kick her Ex's bearded-screaming-butt and what does she do to help? Nothing! She throws of the occasional fire ball and spends her time trying not to freeze to death. You should have worn pants Chandra. While we're on the subject what happened to your shoes? You had like Steelies on. Steelies are cool. Now your running around with stupid boots with like 5-inch heels? Thats not appropriate footware for Planeswalking! That's not appropriate footware for normal walking! At least Liliana is doing it for the whole 'evil is sexy' thing and can summon undead to carry her when she breaks her ankle. What are you going to do ride a Phoenix? Its made of fire! You'll fall right through! Man I should have gone Planeswalking with Liliana - yeah she'd crack my head open with a rock 5 minutes in and raise my corpse to serve her but at least we could have gone dancing!

This leaves me with 6/4/4/2/4 lands. (6 forests, 2 islands)

Kaervek the Merciless and Godsire are the two cards I'm still not sure about. They are obviously amazing cards, but so are most of the other available bomby options.

Kaervek at least gets me something if he is removed, and if they don't have removal, he's even better. I hate seeing Godsire removed before he loses his summoning sickness, but if they don't have removal available, he is insane. I have tried most of the other bombs as well, and I think these are the 2 I like best among them, with the exception of Empyrial Archangel who is never leaving my build.

The Pale Recluse is probably one of the biggest surprises in my build, but they have been very useful. They aren't there instead of other creatures, they are there instead of the Evolving Wilds. If I have my manabase established, I'd just rather play a 4/5 than a fetchland. Sure, it's a subpar fetch for 2 or a subpar creature for 6, but it has some use at any point of the game, which I can really appreciate.
That sucks about the original thread.  I'm not about to go through all that discussion again though. 

You're a lose cannon.

Sorry, I've been out of the loop for a while.  (Just downloaded the new DLC decks yesterday)

What happened to the old thread? 


Don't worry, I've been out of the loop for 20 minutes and I don't know what happened either.



Basically, Stevolutionary (the creator of the original thread) deleted his account without knowing that would delete his posts and threads too.


Huh.
Any particular reason, or just moving on?

He said he was tired of arguing with you lol

j/k, but you better read it yourself.

Okay, pretty much what I gathered.

The latter, not the former.
Here's the Mana Mastery deck I've been playing with. I'm trying to work in the synergy between Defiler and Prince of Thralls. Any advice on how to make it better would be appreciated.

The problem with that is; Defiler of Souls was good in GM when the expansion was released because 9 of the 15 decks you would play against only had mono colored creatures.  Now, only 9 of 21 decks guarantee you'll see mono colored creatures.  Yes, some of the other creatures in the other 12 are mono colored but you definitely lose out on opportunities quite often with the current metagame.

You're a lose cannon.

Played a few more games tonight and I'm inclined to agree with you, sixty4half. I could never get both Defiler of Souls and Prince of Thralls on the board at the same time. I think Defiler of Souls is decent on it's own since in my experience you still see about 50% mono-color decks since not everyone buys the expansions, but it's not the best option for the deck.

Would you recommend I just cut the Defiler of Souls to get a 60 card deck? Right now I'm thinking about removing the Defiler of Souls and Conflux for the 2 Broodmate Dragon.

I wouldn't get rid of Conflux.  It's just too good.  If you want both Broodmates, which I too run, I would drop the Defiler and a Child of Alara.

It's as shame that I just finally unlocked all of the cards and didn't get to read the previous thread. I have to say, out of all of the decks, this by far has been the hardest to cut down to 60-61 or to configure properly for that matter.

Right now I am working on a build that has optimal card advantage with the right mix of mana fixing. Too much mana fixing and you can't survive. Too little and you can't cast anything. I will post a build once I have settled on one.

 
This is my cut of the deck:

I have Naya Charm, Charnelhoard Wurm and All Suns' Dawn there because I feel that this deck needs to play a lot of with its graveyard. I run all Allied Strategies and Prophetic Bolt because I need the deck to keep moving and get me what I need. Other cards that I like are Vorosh, the Hunter which I just could not make room for, Violent Ultimatum which its REALLY powerful combined with the 3 Vindicates but the land restrictions is just too much, Progenitus same issue as Violent Ultimatum and finally Conflux mostly because its too expensive and I feel that the Allied Strategies + Prophetic Bolt work much better and fluently (you could also throw All Suns' Dawn there too). Also, 6 fetch lands is overkill IMO, 4 has been the sweet spot for me. Finally, Magister Sphinx is really powerful but I just don't know where to fit it.
Scorpius,
Here's a wholly different way to approach this deck.

This, if anything, is a serious burn deck.
I'm only running three creatures and for all intensive purposes they are burners also.


Here it is in action.

It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt. - Mark Twain

Mastergear_Owen's take on Magic 2014 Campaign.

Show
You know what I've got more issues. Whats up with the story in this game? The adverts said I was going to team up with Chandra and we were going to kick butt and chew bubblegum across the planes on a revenge campaign against some... guy she knew I guess? Who's Ramaz anyway? What do I get instead? I beat Chandra like 2 minutes in with a mono-green stompy thing Garruk gave me (why does he keep giving all these new planeswalkers his deck) and then I spent like 5 hours jumping from plane to plane picking up random nicknacks for her mantlepiece while she sits back back doing her nails or something. I was thrown in jail! I got hit by a Roil Storm twice! Do you know how many rats are on Ravnica, Chandra? All of them! All of the rats! All of the rats eating me!

Then we go kick her Ex's bearded-screaming-butt and what does she do to help? Nothing! She throws of the occasional fire ball and spends her time trying not to freeze to death. You should have worn pants Chandra. While we're on the subject what happened to your shoes? You had like Steelies on. Steelies are cool. Now your running around with stupid boots with like 5-inch heels? Thats not appropriate footware for Planeswalking! That's not appropriate footware for normal walking! At least Liliana is doing it for the whole 'evil is sexy' thing and can summon undead to carry her when she breaks her ankle. What are you going to do ride a Phoenix? Its made of fire! You'll fall right through! Man I should have gone Planeswalking with Liliana - yeah she'd crack my head open with a rock 5 minutes in and raise my corpse to serve her but at least we could have gone dancing!

Now with more original content and open bar!

So I finally got back from school and have been messing around with this deck, I love it so far but I'm having a hard time cutting the deck down. At the moment the card I'm experimenting with is kaervek, so far he has disappointed me, he usually gets bopped the moment he hits the field(or countered before that even happens) and even when he does, his ability seems more like a win more ability than an ability that will pull me from the brink like empyrical angel and broodmate dragon. But maybe I'm not looking at the card from the right angle, so I figured id come inquire over here and see what y'all think about him.
I find Kaervek to be generally awesome. Not much you can do about counters, but aside from that, there's very few ways can opponent can deal with him without suffering for it. Ultimately, I suppose it depends on how much other burn you're backing him up with.

Wizards: If it isn't game design, we can't do it right. Frankly, we're kind of shaky on the game design sometimes too.

He's a CLEAR 2hd'd/FFA choice imo.  If you're building for 1v1 then I'd playtest all three for awhile.  I'd assume Empyrical would win you the most games in 1v1 duels.

He is in my deck but my MM is slow and doesn't run many creatures.  I lose with it 1v1 more than any other deck that I play 1v1.
I made these for a different purpose originally, but this post has five versions of MM between 5-13 creatures. I feel 6-8 might be appropriate for duels, but for 2HG I'd advocate six or less. There's so many powerful control tools that creatures are basically just "what flavour of win do you want?"
