First off a small explanation when to look for what concerning this blog:
Monday's are general voting days. I will do a shortish write up with each general (You would like X if... etc.) and then leave it to the rest of you to decide who we work on.
Wednesday is card choice day, easy enough, and that will go on till saturday morning.
Saturday afternoon I will present the finished list and will take suggestions for the next weeks generals.
On to the blog!
When coming up with this idea (along with the others) I brainstormed what we could do for the first week. This one was easy, there were 5 new generals coming out in M13! And then Obsidian2fireheartrr posted his EDH deckbuilding blog for the week. And lo and behold M13 legends. To not step on toes or oversaturate these weeks with these new guys(gals) I decided that it would be best NOT to use them this week. Which meant having to think about wat I was going to do.
-You like fliers
-You like being able to tutor for answers reliably
-You like to use the controling nature's of White and Blue while still providing beats.
You will NOT like Isperia if:
-you feel like being able to view an opponents hand to be "dishonest"
-You have trouble rembering cards in other player's hands or don't like writing them down.
- You don't like fliers (which who doesn't not like fliers?)
Is this going to be co-op deck building? I'm just curious because I don't think I fully understand the whole thing. Either way, I vote for Rakdos or the Golgari sisters. Rakdos would be my first choice though. [Report]
4 for Niv, so far, Personally I had him in my heart to get as he is a cool character and powerhouse general, but if he wasn't to win I love Isperia as well. Though it definately appears that he is going to win. [Report]
Alright appearntly I can’t post blogs today? (I’ve tried 3 times and I don’t know whats up) So card selection will go on here.
I will ask that when suggesting a cards, give a link so people can see it, and then a short explanation of why you want it included.
For my own suggestions I have one 3 piece combo and 3 single cards:
The combo is Izzet Guildmage+ Lava Spike + Desperate Ritual, which is an infinite damage combo that isn’t as easy to interrupt as it appears.
Izzet Guildmage: Lava Spike: Desperate Ritual: For single cards:
Card is good, every blue deck should play it. Even better with Niv, ‘nuff said.
Neko-te: Takes half as long to curiosity someone, and is able to sleeping potion creatures that Niv pings, good stuff. Desolate Lighthouse: Every EDH needs land, why not use one that furthers our cause?
Looking forward to your suggestions! Sorry for this mess!
Yeah it wasn't until later that I realized was that she was the actual champion of the guild, not the leader; which is a huge mistake on my part, but if it makes you feel any better in RTR she IS the leader. [Report]
