Alpha Werewolf
12-15-2011, 11:42 PM

Alpha Werewolf
12-15-2011, 11:46 PM
Uh.

That's actually one of two cards I've specifically mentioned are banned because they are way too good. (There are other really good cards, but Exploration and Enchantress are really the big ones)

So what do you guys think about a game of Mental Magic?

For those not familiar with the format, the basic rule is this: Any card may be played ('named') as any other card with the same mana cost (I'd add that for multicolored cards, the pool of options is so ridiculously small (comparatively) that they can be any multicolored card with the same converted mana cost), but once a card has been 'named', nobody may 'name' the same card. In fact, if the card was bounced to your hand or placed in the graveyard, it loses it's identity any is now a nameless card that you may name at any time - say, to make it into a card with flashback.
Similarly, if I play a Swords to Plowshares, that card may not be named again in the current game by anybody - not me, not my opponent.

Other rules include:
-You may play any card facedown as a basic land with no land types that taps for any color of mana.
-You may not search your library unless an opponent caused you to. This is mostly in place because a tutor effect would find anything you want in this format, and some things (such as the Rebel chain from the Rath block) are completely broken.
-You may not play persistent effects that return lands to your hand (such as the Soratami from Kamigawa). This is because playing spells facedown and later retrieving them is very, very good.
-Specific cards that are banned are Exploration (http://gatherer.wizards.com/Handlers/Image.ashx?multiverseid=8823&type=card) and Argothian Enchantress (http://gatherer.wizards.com/Handlers/Image.ashx?multiverseid=5686&type=card), both for being way too good.

As for the format, I'm thinking Legacy. If this seems like too much, then Modern sounds good.

Currently I'm thinking of a normal game with one of you guys; Maybe later we can try multiplayer.

Finally, if we do play Mental Magic, I think we need to lay some ground rules:
-There is to be no searching of Magic card databases for the perfect card for the situation. However, seeing a card in an article that happens to fit, or searching for a card that you know the text & mana cost of but not the name, is fine; We're on an honor system here, just like we expect each other to not cheat in any other game.
-As for the decks, I don't think there need to be special rules. I'll personally throw a bunch of cards I'm not playing into a stack and play with those.

And to add a final point to this post, we should probably make a general purpose topic for one-on-one games. We can have multiple games at a time in that topic, too, since you only need to care about your partner's posts.

Thoughts?

Very cool deck TirMcDohl! My cousin has a white based Myr deck, I don't know if its as effective as yours though.

Well, technically, any color can run the Scars-block Myr package. I've got Leaden Myr, and the spells I've chosen are strictly for creature removal to get theirs out of the way so my guys can swing in, if I'm not going for the Battlesphere moneyshot, which I would have gotten, had Destil not blown up my Plague Myr.

White, you get access to a little enchantment and artifact removal, and it lets you play Origin Spellbombs for the full benefit. Spitting out more Myr tokens is always cool.

Green, you get mana acceleration, which helps a lot. You could choose to not run Semblance Anvils, but there is something nice about saying that a 5/6 creature is free to play.

Blue...I've never really thought about running a blue version of the deck. Counter stuff that you don't like? There's really nothing in-block I can think of that would make me swap the color over to blue.

Red...probably not.

Like I said, black for the creature removal, because my primary win condition is going to be damage.

You should have seen an earlier version of the deck I had that used Tainted Strike on the katamari to throw a surprise ten poison counters at an opponent's face with no regard for blockers. Because Myr Battlesphere works like that.

rats well gg that was rather interesting.

Okay, I've got a standard deck to test if anyone wants to play. It's a twist on UB control so it's not all that rogue really.

Alpha Werewolf
12-16-2011, 02:56 PM
So what did you think of the format?

Personally, I think this game goes to show that this is a game of resources; The player with more cards and mana at his disposal wins. I'd love to play this in multiplayer, too.

Mr. J
12-16-2011, 02:59 PM
I am personally not a big fan of how easily dredge and flashback break it to the point it doesn't actually look like a normal game. It is a cool idea and actually quite a bit of fun to play but just a bit too different for me personally.

That sounds awesome. I know he runs the Origin Spellbombs and the Myrsmiths to really pump out the tokens, cause I once pumped the Battlesphere to +13 or so. I think it could use some cards, like Tempered Steel, but he is only a casual player, so he doesn't drop a lot of money on buying single cards.

I'll try to get a couple of his decklists when I see him again and maybe play them here.

Alpha Werewolf
12-16-2011, 03:05 PM
One more thing: What was your hand at the end? You really had me scared with the potential of the pitch counters/redirectors (Misdirection, for example), and if you had one I would've been set back by a lot.

I had 1R and 2U... Not really what I'd choose for a counterspell sitiing on 1 mana.

Lion Yamato
02-04-2012, 11:14 PM
Hehe, yeah... when you see someone with werewolves being all aggressive with their moonmists, it's a solid bet they have more than one on hand.

Bit weird that in my deck full of creatures, I drew a whopping two. I definitely think things need some work, but I appreciate the test run!

CaptBlasto
02-04-2012, 11:20 PM
Yea, no problem, it was fun! I think my deck needs a bit of tweaking as well. If you didn't figure it out, its a self-milling deck, to pump up Splinterfright or Kessig Cagebreakers. I just didn't draw or mill the right things at all.

Lion Yamato
02-04-2012, 11:26 PM
Yeah, I figured as much. Playing against Kessig Cagebreakers with this deck is a bit scary, considering that Moonmist is not particularly helpful against wolf tokens!

Mr. J
02-05-2012, 01:58 AM
Also, note that when you blocked his guy with the emissary you didn't take two because he saced the full moon rise to regenerate the werewolf, thus causing it to lose trample.

Also, note that when you blocked his guy with the emissary you didn't take two because he saced the full moon rise to regenerate the werewolf, thus causing it to lose trample.

*edit* Nevermind, a whopping five-seconds of Internet research tells me this is correct and I am an idiot. A running theme in that game, apparantely.
