You Make a Mirage Theme deck!

    Frenetic Efreet is actually a Vanguard, probably the release winners' prize.

    -2 cards, -3 life. All your permanants have phasing. At the end of your turn, flip a coin. If you win the flip, take an additional turn.
  2. Notepad Seffy Sefro

    Huh? So, you're trading 50% permanent consistency for 50% odds at getting extra turns? Hardly sounds like its worth trying, especially with cuts to life and cards. Sheesh!

    *now watch I'm wrong and somehow this thing becomes broken due to a coin glitch thereby making infinite turns for those who know how to cheat*

    It probably works best with that Unhinged card that lets you re-flip coins (well, any coin-flipper card works well with it :) )
  4. Oversoul The Tentacled One

    Yeah, let's not forget Mangara's Tome. I used it in pretty much every highlander deck I ever built.

    Another big one for me is Phyrexian Dreadnought.

    Heh, I remember the teaser in the Duelist for it: "A 12/12 trampler that costs only ONE mana! :eek: "

    I could care less about what happens to Magic Online, but if those are your picks, they seem like good ones, so that's what I voted for. I always liked Frenetic Efreet anyway.

    Mist Dragon is another one that can be such fun. "My turn?" Yes it is, but first...

    ...gains flying, loses flying, gains flying, loses flying, gains flying, gains flying, loses flying, gains flying...

    Commons:

    Dream Fighter - One of the coolest abilities ever on a 1/1
    Ekundu Cyclops - YES! We must expose Magic Online to disturbing mushroom art!
    Raging Spirit - because COP:Red is dominating the game!
    Talruum Minotaur - Minotaurs are neat.
    Teferi's Drake - Drakes are neat
    Viashino Warrior - 4/2 for 3R - not bad

    Uncommons

    Burning Palm Efreet - One of my old favorites
    Cerulean Wyvern - Just because I like the art
    Flame Elemental - A lightning bolt on legs!
    Floodgate - One of the coolest walls ever!
    Harmattan Efreet - Works well with Floodgate
    Wildfire Emissary - Another old favorite.

    Abstain.

    :(
  12. Ferret CPA Founder, Slacker

    I agree w/ the abstainance. I have no intention of buying any online Mirage cards as long as they are selling them at current prices instead of the nice cheapo prices I paid way back when...

    -Ferret

    "...and we know that if this does well, they'll reprint all the other older sets - with all of their older set problems..."
  13. Notepad Seffy Sefro

    *yawns at the vote*

    Yeah, pre-selected deck listings. They just pretend you're having a choice. Oh wow, you marrow down a list of 12/11 down to 6/6, and those you vote for only *might* get used. This is about as pointless as I figured it would be.

    But hey, why be Mr. Angrypants Cynicalman? There's some good: We can vote to get the broken cards on the list that we'd want to see. Like, um...Goblin Elite Infantry, and erm...Viashino Warrior...hey, wait....
  14. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Are these the best red or blue commons/uncommons that fit the theme of fire and air? (That's the theme, right?)
  15. YoungBeard New Member

    Some obvious ones are missing. E.g. no Burning Shield Askari. Instead Goblin Elite Infantry is a choice? Bleah. Oh well, it's not like anyone really plays precon decks in MTGO anyhow.
  16. Notepad Seffy Sefro

    Yeah, Viashino Warrior really brings the idea of fire to mind. What, no Incinerate? It would be logical. Dream Fighter is supposed to be air? Huh? Hey I know! Let's crud up the selection with a junk card from the Core Game (you know, the box NOBODY plays with after their first game, if even that!) and sneak Patagia Golem into the listing!

    I think we can all agree on this:
    It really sucks when Sefro's right!

    Told ya so! :p ;)
  17. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Hey, I'm not ready to say you're right :) I was just askingif those were the best choices because I myself don't know if they are... I was hoping to get more of a gauge from other people's posts (which happened to be two).
  18. Notepad Seffy Sefro

    Please Spidey, don't ever admit I'm right. To do so means the world is--hey, where the hell am I going? And why am I in a handbasket?
  19. Spiderman CPA Man in Tights, Dopey Administrative Assistant

    Hey, I'll admit you're right when you're right. I've done it before (maybe not with you, but with others). I give credit where and when it's due.

    Hmm, I actually like these choices a lot more. Still seems very limited in options, though. Crazy WizCo. They should drop the facade and just make some nice precons. Not like anyone but completist fanatics are gonna buy them, anyway!
