by [BRAYAN] on 2009-07-04 04:33 CET

This format is so gay! (format to shooter)

by ik on 2009-07-04 05:09 CET

All everyone (myself inclueded) does is netdeck from the t8 of Honolulu haha...

by LordLink on 2009-07-04 05:35 CET

IvanDano's manabase seems off. Surely you want to play more forests and then use the shardlands to make your splash colour, not your 2 main.

by Lynolf on 2009-07-04 09:35 CET

This is just like Lorwyn block: whoever has Bitterblossom wins. In Alara Block, whoever has Bloodbraid Elf wins. :/

This is just like Lorwyn block: whoever has Bitterblossom wins. In Alara Block, whoever plays cascade wins. :/

Cascade is like affinity but more random.

by Lynolf on 2009-07-04 15:35 CET

That explains why Affinity got a lot of cards banned...

by IvanDano on 2009-07-04 16:32 CET

Lordlink, before I found myself with mana issues going through with the deck w/o the jungle shrines...I thought that may slow my tempo but really helped secure a G/W play of a creature when Hierarch wasn't present. Maybe it should be Arcane Sanctum, but it sure did the trick...

I think I could have won without Cascade...I just needed a way to get around those shroud filled walls...

by Ninja87 on 2009-07-04 18:52 CET

can someone tell me why is there 4 Cruel Ultimatums?

by Duodax on 2009-07-04 19:26 CET

they are good?

by Shyft- on 2009-07-05 05:45 CET

lost to sandoiche on an unlucky cascade (flipped one of 2 celestial purges out of 17 possibilities) and his solid play matching mine =) congrats on finishing it out, figured you probably would.
