Time to dust off my city of brass and put them back in a blue deck with Big-Niv in it.

RE: 25 August 2018: Romancing The Stones 6 (23 players in Austin, TX)
Thank you for posting this.
For a second there, I thought Grayscale Eldrazi would be something completely different. .
RE: [C18] Yuriko, The Tiger's Shadow
@blindtherapy ok, maybe slightly. Lol.
but I think NTDH is where it ends.
At its worse, Yuriko is a Ninja of The Deep Hours. At its best, it's a serious clock that will close the game in a turn or two, without really jumping through hoops. (In Standstill, at least)
RE: JULY 2, 2018 BANNED AND RESTRICTED UPDATE
Not completely an explanation for fun or not fun. Jtms sold more Masters 25 packs not because better drafting experience but because jtms was now unbanned in Modern.
Out of this whole thread, what bothered me most was the attempt to make opinions a fact.
Fact Is, there's no absolute metric for objectification of "fun", ever.
On that note,
Like power level, "fun" should never be used to restrict a card.
RE: Doomsday Time
Hope these help.
I've also been thinking of getting back to Doomsday again. We'll see.
Personally, the more I tweaked Doomsday the more I leaned towards Ad Nauseam Tendrils or Burning Oath. Even then I found DPS to be better suited to contend with Top tier decks atm. Even my EDH Doomsday deck leans on Ad Nauseam first.
Just some thoughts.
RE: [M19] Nicol Bolas, The Ravager/Nicol Bolas, The Arisen
As much as I despise Big Nic, I really like this card as the creature as a 4/4 flying ravenous rats more than its transformed part.
Might as well have done a non-planeswalker Nic at 4UURRBB
With these abilities:
ETB: each opponent discards two cards at random.
2R: Deal 10 to a creature or planeswalker.
B: "Reanimate" creature or planeswalker.
RE: [M19] Nexus of Fate
I really like that it shuffles itself back, doesn't target, and it's an instant. I really dislike how the mana cost keeps me from even brewing with this when I can win the game via so many efficient wins in vintage.
Definitely a great card for EDH and standard. Otherwise, idk.
I would love to see someone win some games running this and ancient tombs in a mono blue combo deck. Maybe "Paradox Nexus"?
RE: Bomberman 2017
From what I see, most players not familiar with Bomberman, try and add the combo to a blue control shell, or cram three decks into one. That might work here and there, but in that case, why even go Bomberman?
Just my two cents.
Also, more Jace, The Mindscultor/ Sensei's D. Top, over cantrips and Snapcaster in this deck is best. Jtms IS the back-up plan. Tinker->BsC is good post-board against specific MUs but I wouldn't do it main. Too much tempo loss. The games where you would win with Tinker, you could've won through Bomberman/Jace anyway.
RE: LCV May - 27 Players - Barcelona - Top16 Decklists
Good to see Omar on Wizards.
RE: [BBD] Arena Rector
@ribby my thoughts as well. Feels like they're making sure we know they're printing new cards that resemble reserved list cards. Imho.
The art is not great in this set. I might get a playset now, but definitely hoping for better art on the reprint later on. (FnM promo maybe)
RE: What is TMD's opinion on permission
I typically pilot Draw-Go decks. So, I run about 10-15 permission/control slots.
If I run a combo deck like, say, Ad Nauseam, then I run 4-8 discard spells and zero-2 counterspells(Flusterstorm)
If your meta is all aggro, I'd suggest more board control less permission.
