Wall for Tesseract (page 1)

I'm glad that there's somebody else who thinks that Black Sabbath is amazing.
Do you have a favorite song by Sabbath? My personal favorite is War Pigs.

Probably not.

Oh sorry, I didn't make that wall post very clear. I meant the info for that stuff, when the Ultra Sun/Moon data leaks reveal that kind of ingame information. I need to know like if we get Aerodactyl like we did in Sun/Moon. Thanks for the offer though. :D

I'd say all the colors in this Standard are pretty well balanced. There are only slight differences in the strength of each color. Green is the strongest color, but that's due more to the overpowered nature of the Energy mechanic (which was mainly in Green with Longtusk Cub and Bristling Hydra). I'd say color strength this Standard goes Green>Red>Black>Blue>White. Energy pushes Green to the top. Red also has strong energy stuff, Glorybringer is great, Abrade is great, and Ramunap Red is the second strongest deck in Standard. Black has access to Fatal Push (one of the best removal spells ever printed) which pushes it over Blue. But Black and Blue are pretty equal in strength. They tend to be played together in the Gifts decks which are popular. White has the tokens deck and control, plus it also appears in Gifts, but there's no real knockout cards in the color, just a fair bit of solid stuff.

Dragon deck is probably the second weakest of the 2017 decks right out of the box. I'd say from best to worst is Vampires, Cats, Dragons, Wizards. In terms of upgrading them though Dragons is probably the best or second best after Wizards, since Scion of the Ur-Dragon is a pretty powerful Commander. However it's very expensive to upgrade because of the manabase.

Oh yeah the Vampiric Bloodlust deck is great Edgar Markov is a very solid commander. He's not unfair like say Animar or Breya, but he can definitely compete. He's probably the second best Commander from Commander 2017, after Inalla, but the vampire precon is a lot better than the Wizard precon. Plus the deck is getting a lot of new vampires in Ixalan that would go great in the deck. Stuff like Mavren Fein, Sanctum Seeker, and Vona.

Planeswalker decks are a nice intro product. Tezzeret's is one of the better ones. Might also get stronger since Ixalan has a minor artifact theme. Best upgrade path is probably going into a Metalwork Colossus build. Something like this as the final result (I'll edit it when full Ixalan spoilers are released):

Is Doomfist really a one-shot machine? I haven't played since before he came out, but when I looked at his abilities they seemed really strong… I WAS playing when Roadhog was nerfed though, and I won't lie, my inner Zenyatta squealed with joy.

No, unfortunately… eventually I realized I wasn't having fun with it, and I was just playing so that I wouldn't lose my edge, so I stopped. What's the point of playing if I'm not enjoying it, right? Sorry to disappoint :(
I should update my About Me page, I suppose.

PM was pretty edgy promoting me to Editor so I guess we can be as edgy as we want. #Ogidni4Mod2k17 #MakeTheDBGreatAgain
