  1. train The Wildcard!!!...

    As in additional sources of mana?...

    Birchlore Rangers
    Color= Green Type= Creature - Elf Cost= G ON(C)
    Text (ON): 1/1. ; Tap two untapped Elves you control: Add one mana of any color to your mana pool. ; Morph {G}.

    Brightstone Ritual
    Color= Red Type= Instant Cost= R ON(C)
    Text (ON): Add {R} to your mana pool for each Goblin in play.

    Elvish Guidance
    Color= Green Type= Enchant Land Cost= 2G ON(C)
    Text (ON): Whenever enchanted land is tapped for mana, its controller adds {G} to his or her mana pool for each Elf in play.

    Mana Echoes
    Color= Red Type= Enchantment Cost= 2RR ON(R)
    Text (ON): Whenever a creature comes into play, you may add {1} to your mana pool for each creature you control that shares a creature type with it.

    Skirk Prospector
    Color= Red Type= Creature - Goblin Cost= R ON(C)
    Text (ON): 1/1. ; Sacrifice a Goblin: Add {R} to your mana pool

    Wirewood Elf
    Color= Green Type= Creature - Elf Cost= 1G ON(C)
    Text (ON): 1/2. ; {Tap}: Add {G} to your mana pool.

    That's about it mana-wise...

    From what train posted, there's one creature fixer, and five land-fixers(the sac-duals).

    I won't be able to attend the PR, though, so it doesn't matter to me.

    :(

    At some points, 24-hours every day college sucks oink.

    But a four-year degree in a year is pretty damn sweet!:cool:

    By the way...
    Nowhere did it say "personal battle." An "epic confrontation" is the result of their "personal conflict." I suggest you relearn the finer points of semantics. ;) (I'm just kidding. :D)

    I wonder how many slivers they'll print...

    Legions looks great.
  4. Lotus Mox New Member

    Whoa! Phage is a killing machine, but unfortunately too expensive for anything but casual play (as if casual play is so unimportant ;) )
    But when she is just Volrath's Shapeshifter in disguise, things can get ugly very fast :)

    TICM: They'll print 15 slivers, for each color/rarity one. Their P/T will probably correlate with their respective commonality, like the Rath cycle slivers' P/T, except of the Queen herself, did.
  5. Ferret CPA Founder, Slacker

    If the other ten slivers are at least common they should be a major player when it's released...

    ...back when I used to hold my own sealed deck tourneys Stronghold was all about Slivers - using Red/Green I was able to do some painful things to my oponents...

    -Ferret


    "...okay, so you block my Sliver w/ two critters? It gets +2/+2. Thanks."
  6. Shiro Time Devourer I have returned!

    I attack with Phage and Taunting Elf. Steely Resolve is in play.
    Any answers?

    BTW: Akroma doesn't need to be built around. She's all-around GOOD. She makes Iridescent look shoddy, and that's hard to do.
  7. train The Wildcard!!!...

    Fog... Rout... Constant mists... Lull... Moments Peace... Respite... Snag... Tangle... undergrowth... Alabaster potion...
    Guardian Angel... Holy day... Invulnerability... Prismatic Strands

    Solitary Confinement?...

    What about redirect damage???
    :eek: :eek:

    Sorry - I play a lot of White green utility...
  8. Shiro Time Devourer I have returned!

    You can only do this for so long. I'd attack with just those two just to force your hand while the other elves get their block on.

    The deck I plan to make uses loads of elves and Phage. TE and PTU force the opponent to act until all his defenses are exhausted.

    BTW: The deck will have Fog stuff in the board v. Redirection, as well as Elvish Guidance.
  9. train The Wildcard!!!...

    Getting rid of them with a wrath would take care of it then...
  10. Shiro Time Devourer I have returned!

    Good call. This is what 'Elphage' will have:

    Deck:

    Elf Tribal stuff
    Trample
    Lure effects
    Untargetability for any creature (Safekeeper, Resolve)
    Mana fixers like Elvish Guidance, Fyndhorn Elder, and Llanowar/Wirewood Elf. Even BOPs, if you got the $.
    4 Cabal Ritual
    4 Diabolic Tutor
    Graveyard-to-hand effects.

    SB:
    Fear
    Fog effects
    Biorhythm

    Any other ideas?
  11. train The Wildcard!!!...

    Chain of Acid...
  12. Shiro Time Devourer I have returned!

    Gets any non-creature. Offing lands will deal with defenses, at the expense of my Guidanced lands (if any).
  13. train The Wildcard!!!...

    Your running elves... you still have mana... so offing the lands isn't that bad of a deal...

    Them losing their land... now that's nice...
  14. Jigglypuff Big Cute Pink Thing

    *BZZZT!* It is pronounced like "Kay serah serah" and it is French. Thanks for playing "So You Want To Speak French". You win the consolation prize.

    (- Steve -)
  15. train The Wildcard!!!...

    Well we know it couldn't win any major wars then huh...
  16. EricBess Active Member

    I have no idea whether or not it works in French or not. I happen to be very fluent in Spanish and it is definitely Spanish for "What will be, will be". And yes, there are accents on the 'a's.
  17. Shiro Time Devourer I have returned!

    Each Legions Legend seems to represent a style of play.
    The Works seems to be the Tournament representative, as she is fast and has more abilities than warrants her 5WWW cost and 6/6 body.
    Phage is extremely fun to play with, but tricky. Therefore a casual experiment. That, coupled with her combo flavor and "you win" ability, makes her the embodiment of Casual play.
  18. BigBlue Magic Jones

    It may not win any wars . . .

    But it appears to have started one. :)
  19. train The Wildcard!!!...

    as always... such is the case...
  20. Ferret CPA Founder, Slacker

    Here's a nice Blue answer to Phage: Ray of Command...Imagine how embarasing that could be...
