For some reason, EDH is becoming popular again around where I live, so if anyone would like to share their decks and Commanders, that'd be cool.

For me, I'm using a BUG deck with The Mimeoplasm as my Commander. I've built it around pumping up my creatures and grave robbing, so it should be a fun deck to play with.


I'd rather die a Wolf fighting against the Herder, than die a Sheep heading for the slaughter.

Gravepurge is also a nice card, albeit they go to the top of your deck instead.

Well if you're running Orzhov or some other deck with a splash of white, Faith's Reward works well in case of a board wipe.

Do you guys know about the program Cockatrice?

If so, i'm trying to get into MTG a bit but I don't have anyone to play and it'd be nice to play some people who know what they're doing and can help me learn.

The only experience I have with MTG are the planeswalker games and an Eldrazi deck I netdecked so I know how to play but I don't really know the metagame and the more advanced aspects of the game.

So who got dat 2014 set?

I got 4 boosters and fairly decent cards.

Wish I had gotten the fat pack though. My friend got 9 mythics in his.

So I was introduced to this thing over the weekend, and it actually seems pretty cool! I pretty much know the basics/mechanics of the game already, meaning I have the gist of each color and card type, but that's it. Can I get some help on a starting deck/setup, since I still have no idea what to do strategywise?

Yes, I play them on Steam. My laptop is shit, so they are one of the few games I can play.

I think the newest one is kind of 'ugly' compared to '13 but I like how some of the monsters like Grave Titan and It That Betrays have neat animations.

These games taught me how to play magic and now that '14 has an eldrazi deck I can enjoy it even more.

I think the newest Duels of the Planeswalkers has a much better interface. It's very easy to navigate. I used to have trouble sometimes scrolling through the menu in 2013 because it would randomly scroll the opposite way I'd want. This is playing the Steam version.

It is uglier than '13 (and I don't like the deck balance or variety compared to it either, but then again '13 had more decks in the meta due to the expansions), but it has sealed which is the best bonus mode they've ever done. Eldrazi ramp deck has become really viable even in 1v1 with the inclusion of the promos (I don't even run anyway Eldrazi in the deck cuz I'm a cheeky boi). The Dimir pile is my favourite because I'm a controlling bastard.

Dmir are always a little annoying for me because I am used to YGO so a deck that draws and mills you so cheaply and easily feels broken to my inner king of games.

Are the decks in Planeswalker all standard format usable? I wondered this in 13 as well because some of the cards I recognized from older versions and thought maybe they were reprinted or that Planeswalker didn't restrict itself to formats. I'm not really experienced in playing magic outside of these games so I don't really know about all the sets and stuff.

What is your Steam ID? We should play some time, i'll add anyone else who might want to play too.

I am thinking about a Sliver deck. Is this a bad idea? I think it could be tons of fun being able to essentially make a pool of shared abilities with different slivers.

If not, go to Gatherer - a searchable Magic card database listing all Magic cards ever printed.

Holy shit I need to run two or three Shifting Slivers.

This card is an absolute bomb in a Sliver deck. Removes any chance of a board stall from your opponent. It'll be a big target for removal spells.

Which is why Crystalline Sliver is widely regarded as the best Sliver ever printed. It completely shuts down all interaction for your opponent.

Would that stop abilities such as "Immunity to any creature of one type" or whatever?

My bud has a white card that is 2/2 and can be immune to any one type.

No, because that isn't a targeted ability.

Looks like I'll need to run 4 doom blades then.

I recently started playing Magic, on PC anyway. I must have been nostalgia-ing over childhood memories of Pokemon and Yugioh cards and before I knew it I was playing the Magic 2014 demo on Steam. Didn't take me long before I decided to buy the full game. I'd never played Magic before now, always assuming it had a steep learning curve. I'm probably still really crap but I've been doing okay against the AI. Really been enjoying it so far.

I'd have liked to get into playing the physical card game but unfortunately I don't know anyone who has or would be willing to play this. I suppose it's probably just easier and cheaper to stick with the computer game.

If any of you guys (@Gobblemeister @Spooky @ExtremeFudgeMaster @Mumbo or anyone else) are interested in playing Magic 2014 with me on Steam, send me a friend request and say hey. Here's a link to my profile. I'm interested in seeing how well I fare against an actual person. I could just play random people online but that seems a little less fun.

On my last match (image below) I ended up completely overwhelming the opponent. I've never had anywhere near that many creatures on the battlefield at once before. Still experimenting with the various decks though.

So I pulled my first mythic rare from a gatecrash booster yesterday. I got Gideon, Champion of JUSTICE.

I'm going to throw him in my azorius deck so I can ramp him up while I detain/arrest/tap the piss out of every creature my opponent has.

Hey, I've just started playing Magic and I've cobbled together a few decks from a few starter kits (Black, Green and White) and I'm wondering if you guys have any advice for a new player.

There are sites that let you put up your own decks. You might want to post them if you want specific criticism on there.

But synergy is key.

There's more to it than just loading up on overpowered kill cards and any other random powerhouse you have in a deck. You usually pick a theme for a deck and then use cards that will specifically interact with each other. My simic deck, for example, is all about each creature helping the other and ramping each other up until I have a 70/70 flying trample.

It's also a good idea to make sure your deck has one or two win conditions. That being said, not a bad idea to start a deck using green so you can get a good idea of how to play then start using other colors. As for multicolor decks, best to get gates, shock, and scry lands, all are in rotation now.

Gates aren't that great, SCTE3, but definitely one should get dual or fetch lands if they're doing multicolored lands. Luckily since Ravnica's back, dual lands are in Standard once more, so it shouldn't be a problem incorporating them into your deck.
