This seems somewhat pointless, given my lack of proximity to ToothyWikizens. I'll update it whenever I'm going to be around magic players in a magic setting.



Haves


This needs to be updated at some point.

I have a binder, and some binder pages.
Cards marked * are, in the usual fashion, ones I'm thinking about using when I replenish my stock of RoundTuits

Cards listed in alphabetic order (except Unhinged, which follow each section in italics).

No way. I have at least reached the "that's silly" threshold on commons.


Wants




Proposed Trades



FlameRider: Do you still have the MTG: Dragonstorm?  If so, do I have anything you want? 



Decks in Progress



This one never really got anywhere.

MTG: Meishin, the Mind Cage and MTG: Strange Inversion (plus arcane spells to splice it to). Add MTG: Burning Sands, and MTG: Dingus Staff. Probably want some means of guaranteeing the opponent has creatures, so perhaps MTG: Forbidden Orchard and MTG: Goblin Sharpshooter (something of a combo in itself). The orchard would also then allow some White enchants, such as MTG: Inheritance, or some Black stuff like MTG: Dross Harvester and MTG: Grim Feast.
Shame I have nearly none of those cards.
Interesting: this is similar to the combo people were discussing at (I think) GamesEvening, of MTG: Mannichi and MTG: Meishin. You do need a way of keeping Mannichi alive though (Or popping him back into play), as it's rather global. Strange Inversion or MTG: Dwarven Thaumaturgist is rather more targetted. But yes, the whole Sands / Staff / Orchard / Sharpshooter seems an excellent way of taking the idea and running with it. --AC



Black Flames or Undying Dawn



MTG: Undying Flames and MTG: Bringer of the Black Dawn? The deck would probably want to be 5-colour green, in order to cast the Bringer at a sensible time; running 4 copies also allows you to deal 27 damage in three turns once Flames is going!

Decklist, which may have warped a bit since writing.

Creatures

Non-Creatures

Land(note that, strictly speaking, I only ever need 1 Swamp and 2 Mountains, ignoring MTG: Pentad Prism)

I have a MTG: Clearwater Goblet that I'd happily trade away if you need it. --qqzm
The Goblet has proved quite useful from time to time. I shall consider it. And update my trades at some point. --CH

Are you still trying to make this deck?  If so, I have two spare Kites going, if you still want them.  --FR

I traded for at least one Kite at Ravnica. I'll audit this deck at some point and let you know. And update my trades. --CH


My Affection



Combining Selesnya and Golgari saproling production cards with Golgari sac effects and MTG: Twilight Drover. This can do some truly sick things. In a game I played against myself last night, I got some tokens from a creature dying with MTG: Promise of Bunrei on the table. Thereafter, my tokens gang-blocked 4/3 and 5/4 beasts, before being sacrificed to MTG: Spawning Pit, putting +1/+1s on the Drover for more tokens later. A MTG: Woodwraith Corrupter then joined the fun, with its 4/4 mosters being sacced to MTG: Perilous Forays if they were going to die, triggering both parts of MTG: Savra in the process.

Since tweaked a bit, this now contains the requisite 4 MTG: Doubling Season, but could use more MTG: Spawning Pits. I've also swapped out the MTG: Shambling Shell for a MTG: Fecundity. MTG: Midsummer Revel might go well too...

In a single game, I have had out: 1/1 White spirits (flying), 1/1 White spirits (non-flying), 1/1 Green saprolings, a 3/3 Green elephant and 2/2 Artifact spawns. The deck is capable of producing: Elephants, saprolings, snakes, spawns, non-flying spirits, flying spirits and beasts. It gets a bit confusing at times!

Since the latest round of changes, this deck contains a 3-card infinite combo. Well, 3+(almost any other card in the deck), and two of the 3 main ones are one-of's, but hey.

Current deck list is - shall we say - non-optimal. I kinda want to send it to ChrisMillar?, but it wants to be cleaned up first. Suggestions? The land and mana-fixing is way off for one thing. Note that I don't want to lose any of the possible token types, and I'm more than happy to gain additional types (f'rinstace, 4/4 beasts to go with the 3/3 beasts).

Of the multiple cards available for B, F, M, P & S, I'm unsure what would be best.

That list in CMC order.

Not a bad curve. With the cards shown, I can distribute 14 extra copies of non-land cards.

Grand total coloureds: 30G, 16W plus W/Kjeldoran? Outpost, WG/Vitu?-Ghazi

I've sent it in. Here's how I sold it to ChMi?:

"Obviously, this deck goes crazy with tokens. It can churn out a scarily large number of token creatures, especially once a Doubling Season gets on the board.

Spawning Pit and Doubling Season is probably the best "engine" in the deck, with the pair essentially reading "1: Put a 2/2 Spawn into play"; in fact, most of the cards get silly with a Season out. Nacatl War-Pride goes without saying, but Midsummer Revel is my favourite - for each turn you can keep it around, you get FOUR beasts!

The deck shouldn't fall over and die if you can't find a Season, though - for instance, Twilight Drover feeds off most of the other token-producers, including the War-Pride because of its unusual "leaves play" condition. Once you've got the board full, one of the pair of Glares should spell game over.

But forget all that. I love this deck because it can produce thirteen distinct token types. Better make sure you've got enough loose change to represent Saprolings, Bats, Elephants, Citizens, Cats (2/2 Forestwalking), Soldiers, Beasts, Cats (3/3 one-blockers), Snakes, Spirits (1/1 colourless), Spawns, Spirits (1/1 white flying), plus one creature type of your choice! And I reckon that's Just Cool."


Earth Tremors


...or the deck of the bouncing land. Inspired by a recent Three-Card Blind entry, another deck fragment for which I own very few of the key cards:

4x MTG: Azusa
4x MTG: Vinelasher Kudzu
4x MTG: Seed the Land
4x MTG: Lifegift
2x MTG: Stone-Seeder Hierophant (more if I can find a use for the mana)
?x MTG: Gush
?x MTG: Horn of Greed

4x MTG: Treva's Ruins
2x MTG: Oboro, Palace in the Clouds
some number of Karoo-style lands with G in
Sufficient Forests and Islands to provide bounce targets
Bouncy bouncy. How about MTG: Patron of the Moon and/or some other Soratami? --AC
A caballo. No, I don't expect anyone on this wiki to understand that (except a certain lurker), but the phrase "Bouncy bouncy" brings back memories. --PT
Have you considered things to put more land into play, prior to taking it out again?  I'm thinking of things like MTG: Budoka Gardener and MTG: Sakura-Tribe Scout.  --FR

Note - this idea deserves to be resurrected with Zendikar. --CH

Laundry list
This is the result of running "whenever.*land.*play", "whenever.*permanent.*play", "comes into play [on lands]", "owner's hand [on lands]" through CrystalKeep?. This search will be expanded (suggestions welcomed).


I own an MTG: Ornate Kanzashi, MTG: Muse Vessel, and MTG: Planeswalker's Mischief, together with several MTG: Fist o the Suns and some MTG: Ice Caves. Perhaps a deck that wroks by playing other people's spells. Although I'd need more ways to do it, I think.


I also have at least one MTG: Searing Meditation. It's one of four cards that have "Whenever you gain life" on them, all in RGW; perhaps a deck that works off those triggers? If I could shoe-horn Black in as well, I could also pay some of the life back out again for $effects.
