Hello I’m back! :D

Hello my Nurglings!

I know it’s been awhile since I posted on here and you know, I blame it all on life. Even if most may say that I don’t have one, that’s not the case. Sometimes it just hits you in the face and you get a little bit of setback when it comes to things like, blogs, and keeping yourself updated, and having the energy to do things.

BUT! Here I am again. And something that really pushed me to write this is one of my latest comments. Thank you Danny for this awesome message.

Comment quote: Danny.

I got an update too! I’ve been running this deck as is, unmodded, for the past three or four tournaments I’ve been going good and it’s held it’s own again the top players in our group.

Being one of the least experienced in the group I tended to get slaughtered but I’m actually giving people a run for their money now, even against our reining champion. My friend officially hates the deck because it’s such a good competitor against their werewolf deck. Both times we’ve gone up against each other they have been some of the most intense games I’ve ever played.

Just like everyone else though I feel the midgame is a little weak. If I’m slow to get the counters going I’m done for generally. I’m considering adding Bloodline Keepers in as well whether 4-2 I’m not sure.

However I HAVE to share what happened last tournament. I got a little ol’ Strom Kirk Noble up to a 13/13! I was getting 3 1/1 counters per turn it was beautiful.
Also I can report that even against a supposedly “better” r/b vamp aggro deck this one owns. My opponent was just a weeee bit pissed that a cheaper deck beat his beefier midgame deck.

The deck he is talking about is right here for all of you to read up on: https://nurgleprobe.wordpress.com/2011/09/16/innistrad-on-standard-aggro-vampires/
Thanks Danny, and hello my Nurglings, I’m back for now. 😉

Until next time, take care.
Cya soon!

WW deck – Token Enchantress – Standard MTG

Hello my Nurglings!

I know you love me when I show you decks and guess what? It’s time for another one, and it’s all about one type of deck that I love; WW. Kind of? Perhaps? Maybe like WW? So why did I look at this deck to begin with for the coming format? It’s mostly because of two cards, two enchantments none the less.

Look at the two cards (Honor Of The Pure / Intangible Virtue), is this a match made in heaven or what? If you can play a deck that gets enough white token creature, you’re in the awesome! And this deck, does just that. Let’s look at the creatures first shall we.

Creature: 17
4x Mesa Enchantress
4x Geist-Honored Monk
4x Doomed Traveler
4x Leonin Arbiter
1x Sun Titan

So you’re looking at this thinking: That’s not a lot of token creators mr Nurgle. Well guess what? This is not the place for that. But you still have Doomed Traveler and Geist-Honored Monk is in the deck to help you with the token creation. Monk is a fantastic card with just one or two +1/+1 enchantments out. Two extra 3/3 flyers with your new 4/4 or 5/5 Vigilance creature, is nothing to laugh at for just the 5 mana.

Mesa Enchantress add some extra draw when you play your enchantments, that can be vital for not running out of steam.Leonin arbiter is a card that I’m just trying out with Ghost Quarter to see how that works in an actual deck. Otherwise it will be traded out for some other great white creatures (there are plenty of them in the format).

NEXT! Wait wait, before looking at the enchantments, I just want to say: don’t have much to say about them. They are self explanatory.

Enchantment: 12
4x Honor Of The Pure
4x Intangible Virtue
4x Oblivion Ring

Other Spells: 8
4x Midnight Haunting
4x Timeley Reinforcment

Here they are, the token creators, survival and combat tricks. Three mana for two possible 3/3 flyers in instant speed, sounds bad? I think not. These are eight cards that are awesome in themselves, but becomes even better the more +1/+1 enchantments you hit. If you manage to get 4 enchantments out at anytime, these cards create 5/5 creatures, with vigilance, and a few of them even fly. It’s sweet!

Oh and:

Land: 23
19x Plains
4x Ghost Quarter

Well that’s it for now.
Until next time, stay safe.
Cya soon!

Poll Of The Day – Innistrad – Hit or Miss?

Hello my Nurglings!

Even if we haven’t had the chance to experiment very much with the set yet, what do you think after this weekend’s pre-release. Is it looking good, is it the doomsday that some of you feared, is it a lot better in limited than you first thought?

The questions goes for the set overall but please share experiences you’ve had with the set!

Until next time, take care.
Cya soon!

Magic Standard Deck – Green Dawn (Zombies)

Hello my Nurglings!

Okay okay, first of, I said I would not do THE zombie deck for the blog. That was the deck using the Rooftop Storm and Gravedigger combo. Now, let’s instead talk of another kind of zombie deck. The – Green Dawn (as in: dawn of the dead). It’s all about the zombie horde!

It started with the mentioning of the “new doubling season” card – Parallel Lives. It doubles the amount of tokens you would put on the field. If you would put two tokens on the field, you put out four instead and so on. While discussing cards from Innistrad I soon after mentioned that I would love to play Army of the Damned in Standard. Soon after Johnny said, “So army of the Damned with that card would give you 26 zombies?” It kind of sky rocketed from there, talk about different token cards becoming more and more insane and the amount of Zombies would be HUMONGOUS!

Did I mention that I love old zombie movies? And the idea of making more than my local store would have tokens for makes me smile, a lot!

So here it goes the zombie horde! (I mean the creatures).

Creatures: 16
4x Diregraf Ghoul
4x Walking Corpse
4x Cemetery Reaper
4x Unbreathing Horde

So as you can see the whole idea is just to keep a steady field of creatures in the early game, a lucky enough start may even end up being to much for your opponent to handle. Unbreathing horde is also one card that is awesome once you get your token machine going. It can be huuuuuge and damage is no problem for it to handle.

So what do you need to make one awesome slowly growing Zombie army? You thought the creatures would be the backbone of the horde? Oh no, the enchantments will do that for you.

Spells: 20
4x Endless Ranks Of The Dead
4x Moan of the Unhallowed
4x Parallel Lives
3x Dismember
3x Altar’s Reap
2x Army of the Damned

Endless Ranks of the Dead together with Parallel Lives = awesomeness. Why? Let’s just say there will be a lot of zombies and “quickly”. Just imagine one Endless Ranks and two Parallel Lives, and two zombies on the field. Next turn you get 4 zombies. Yes 4. Ranks want to create one, Lives want to create 2, and the last Lives wants to make it 4. Next turn you get… let’s go through it together.

Endless Ranks of the Undead : I want to give you 3 zombies!
Parallel Lives: I want to make that 6 zombies!
Parallel Lives 2: I want to make that 12 zombies!
Yup… two turns, and 18 zombies on the field (Next turn it’s 48 zombies btw).

I can’t wait to try this deck out, even if just for fun (that’s an awful lot of rares just to have fun I know).

Oh and the lands:

Land: 24
17x Swamp
4x Woodland Cemetery
3x Forest

Until next time, stay alive.
Cya soon!
