    Re: [PRIMER] Oozing

    I actually would be inclined to play Ballista even in a combo focused deck because it has applications outside of the combo, such as killing a Thalia or Revoker.

    Hey there. While I do not recommend the above list, the fact that Walking Ballista is a huge upgrade from Triskelion is something I have been thinking about and tinkered with. I feel like there is a...

    Re: [Deck] U/G Infect

    Hey Blinks. Thank you, but let's not exaggerate the importance of one 5-0 on MTGO.

    Crypt/Macabre is just my preferred graveyard hate package. Crypt comes in against ANT, and all 4 cards against...

    Mostly for Marit Lage token, since there are so many of them in the meta now.
    I am not a huge fan of Sylvan Library, I think it's just a little too slow, but it's always on my list.

    Well, Jace is a creature also. That was my idea.
    And there were times where the extra damage from getting Anger with Pyromancer in play added up to more than an extra Phoenix would have.

    Re: [Deck] U/G Infect

    Hehe, thank you for noticing my little result. I had two 5-0's with Infect recently, and I think the deck is in a not so bad place now, what do you all think?
    Deathrite gone - good.
    Probe gone -...

    Re: Buried Phoenix

    I tried some leagues with this deck today, went 4-1, 3-2, 3-2.
    The raw power is there, but I need to refine my skill a lot.
    Some things I have tried: 2 Jace Prodigy, 1 Anger, and IoK/Duress split...

    Re: Buried Phoenix

    Just a word of advise to anyone who hasn't seen what this deck can do, Whitefaces knows what he's doing. I've seen enough to know it's very explosive and powerful.
    I might try the deck out myself,...

    It seems that the number of active Legacy players on MTGO is slowly increasing, which is nice.

    I agree with this.
    Probe was devastating against Infect, and the deck might be better positioned now.

    Deathrite did so much for this deck, and can't be replaced by simply throwing in 4 Birds of Paradise or whatever - the deck will have to be rethinked in a new way, like Miracles had to rethink itself...

  15. Re: Is 23% of the top spot too much for one deck? How about two?

    They are not the same deck by any reasonable definition. They share some pivotal Legacy cards, but the strategies are completely different.

  16. Re: [Official] Bitching About Prices, Buyouts and Reprints Thread

    I usually enjoy Patricks rants, but what a load of baloney that was. His main arguments are 1) that it is OK that people can't play Legacy because they can still play "Magic" so there is really no...

    Fun police? How about fact police. Delver aggro runs Daze, other decks are highly unlikely to run Daze. Some blue based decks run fewer than 4 Ponder, some less than 4 FoW. Some run a full set of...

    Re: [Deck] Aluren

    Good questions Qweerios.

    At this point I think 3 Aluren is correct in the BUG version. The threat is stronger than the execution.

    3-4 Harpies is correct, even though they are sometimes bad...
