    Greets. I been playing Magic off and on for about 10 years now. Most of my deck are legacy but that isn't my point. After playing a fun tourney at my local store I got bit by the Blue bug and am wondering if anyone has some advice on blue decks in general. I am tempted on going Blue/Black but I am unsure if this is wise. Thanks in advance.

    The only Blue/Black deck that comes to mind is Reanimator. But the top decks that involve Blue in Legacy are...
    Canadian Threshold/RUG Delver
    Reanimator
    Stoneblade
    UW Miracles
    Merfolk
    UR Delver
    High Tide
    Mono Blue Control
    BUG Delver

    There's some other ones like Dream Halls, Hivemind, Hypergenesis, or even Wizards tribal (which did top 8 in a big tournament...okay, only one tournament, but still), but the above ones are the ones that tend to have the most luck in tournaments.

    nope. It's only got one target and if that becomes illegal by the time it resolves, it is countered

    In a good mood today. Not only did I go 4-0 for the first time ever in a tournament (I've gone 3-0-1 and 3-0 before, but never 4-0), but I opened a Cavern of Souls in one of my boosters I got as a prize. Trying to decide if I should put it into my Delver deck or sell/trade it.

    So, Pre-Release is $25 and it sounds like I'll be the only one who would be able to go, so I may not end up going.

    Are you head judging? If you aren't head judging, this is much easier:
    1) Read the FAQ.
    2) Remember that this is a casual event, so unless someone does something really bad (like cheating), you're going to be giving out warnings.
    3) Whenever anyone asks you a question, pick up the card(s) involved (or bend over them if you don't want to lift them off the play area) and read everything. This not only will help you make sure you know the oracle texts of the cards involved, but will also give you time to think about the question(s) you are being asked so you can more accurately provide a ruling.

    Besides that, have fun! If your event isn't too large, you might be able to play as well as judge (you can both play and judge at FNM level or below.)

    Don't you mean cautions?

    I know some Delver builds play it, though I do know the top one at the Manila Grand Prix didn't (then again, it had only 19 lands, and I'm not sure I want to drop down that low, I'm at 20 now). Right now I'm trying to decide whether the solitary Ghost Quarter in my deck should be replaced with Cavern or not.

    I mean, for most game-loss offenses you give warnings. For most warning offenses, you give cautions. But the only thing you give warnings for usually is, like, missed triggers.

    Edit: Notable terrible fun deck idea: We now have a 1-mana and a 2-mana Dragon to go with Descendants' Path. Sounds like a fun time.

    Does anyone here play on MtGO? I was thinking about starting it up so I could draft and play pauper at the odd hours of the day I'm awake during summer vacation. I know netdraft and cockatrice and such exist but the games feel like there's no tension since there's nothing on the line. Also, the Legacy tournaments on Magic-League just aren't scratching that itch.

    If you want to go out of standard with Descendant's Path, use it with Eldrazi Spawn.

    Aggro Mill doesn't usually work well in 60-card formats. To have a good mill deck, you need to either mill their entire library in one turn (Combo Mill) or have a small number of hard-to-remove cards that mill gradually while the rest of your deck tries to neutralize the opponent (Control Mill).

    Blue-black has the only decent Control Mill plan in Standard right now with Nephalia Drownyard.

    Simple, it turns Crucible of Worlds in "Target red player may scoop." Eldrazi are far too predicable, though.

    Needs more Ruination.

    You also probably want to play Miren, the Moaning Well. You might want to play Hall of the Bandit Lord. I would also suggest Sword of War and Peace and Sword of Fire and Ice if you have them because pro-red is awesome when you're Earthquaking everything constantly.

    I also suggest any ways to get more lands into play, since you're playing so many. Terrain Generator and Druidic Satchel are the examples that come to mind immediately.

    Finally, Repercussion. It's really good at making other players die with Earthquakes.

    It might just be that I'm not very familiar with Commander, but your deck is three-quarters lands and I'm not seeing how you're supposed to consistently get enough of the other things to win, especially the all-important mana doublers (and/or the one cost-halver).

    Actually, "99 Mountain Ashling" is a simple deck idea that many have suggested. The idea is that you make your land drop every turn and play Ashling and pump her whenever possible. It's not necessarily highly ineffective (I mean, you get to wrath pretty much whenever you want and you have a giant General), it just isn't as tricky as many other decks.

    Finally, Repercussion. It's really good at making other players die with Earthquakes.
    Swords are pretty expensive, but I should get them anyway.
    All of those are good suggestions. I feel dirty playing Terrain Generator in a mono-red deck though.


    Also yes, 99 Mountain Ashling is the most fun. But 70ish mountain and good stuff Ashling is probably better.

    Thanks Uncle Festy for the wonderful Ashling Avatar
