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.

At least I expect much less removal in Liliana's deck this year, for the good of the environment.
At least I expect much less removal in Liliana's deck this year, for the good of the environment.Eh. It's Black. There's three major options; discard, removal, and Zombies/Vampires, which both had tribal decks in 2012. The Dimir deck has a pretty fair whack of discard, and that was also another 2012 deck. I think a high removal quotient is pretty likely, and not to mention _something_ needs to keep Slivers in check. That's why I keep hoping for Tsabo's Decree, because it can murderise Slivers dead without necessarily taking the wind out of the sails of some of the other decks. CMD has a good mix of types, as does AG. EtD might be in a bit of a fix, but that's not too horrible.Of course, I suppose they could actually do reanimator...it is called Deadwalkers, so I suppose it more or less has to be that, Zombies, or make little in the way of sense.
@Wizards_SeanThank you @AllHmmm, i had that feeling during the deckbuilding, and it didn't get better, but i think this will be the most boring deck in DotP 2014. Tons of French-vanilla creatures without amazing abilities and one tactic Overrun don't make this deck interesting. Garruk decks aren't very interesting anyway, but 2009 to try the Troll+Hammer+Armor combo was allways neat and last year Garrul had different playstyles: Ramp into fatties, generate Tokens or normal beat down. This here have only beat down, not more. Almost no ramp and fatties and almost no tokens. Boring.
The problem with Reanimator decks is the potential for horrible horrible brokenness.
Well obviously, but if you make a reanimator deck without some of the staples, its useless and/or unnecessarily underpowered and is basically just a deck with some reanimates and rise from the graves.
WotC doesn't care about flavor. Their forum is the only place where an ORC can kill a troll...

I see a few Regal Forces in these deck lists but I think if I run a 7cc creature at all I'm going to be taking a hard look at Garruk's Horde instead... bigger body with trample for the same cost, and still has some potential card advantage if it stays on the board. I think it will be better when you need it the most as well (ie. no other creatures on the board).
Why is Wurmskin Forger costed so poorly? It's like Green's version of Ember Shot!

Lol, isn't that the truth. Hell, even a n00b should be able to make that decision. It probably means you are playing someone who isn't old enough to go to pre-school yet. Or perhaps a research monkey.BTW, which would you rather have if you had to use one (using a mono-colored deck respective to each card's color of course)? Wurmskin Forger or Ember Shot? I never thought I would say this...but I think I might choose Ember Shot, lol.

Mastergear_Owen's take on Magic 2014 Campaign.
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 should end the game turn 5 pretty consistently I think. What do you guys think?60 cards total24 x Forest4x Prey Upon3x Rancor0-1x Savage Summoning (New Card) (not sure if this effect is really worth a card outside of against counterspells)3x Garruk's Companion3x Kalonian Tusker (New Card)0-2x Sacred Wolf (good target for Enlarge, but other than that just filler)3x Gloomwidow2x Eternal Witness1x Leatherback Baloth1x Predator Ooze1x Elephant Guide0-2x Hunt the Weak (New Card) (do we need this much removal? It always seemed like Pack Instinct didn't have enough of it, but this deck seems to just want as many creatures as possible instead. I guess I'll test this card)2x Cudgel Troll1x Fangren Firstborn1x Master of the Wild Hunt0-1x Brawn (filler)3x Enlarge (New Card)3x Overrun1x Overwhelming Stampede0-1x Bellowing Tanglewurm0-1x Primeval Bounty (New Card) (the card is really good, but the game should be over on turn 5)
Prey Upon is excellent against Illusions. I would keep them.
Prey Upon is excellent against Illusions. I would keep them.I'm not going to base any deck due to just 1 deck that is out there. I agree with Hakeem though, keeping 2 Preys and 0 Hunts might be the best bet here.
