I predict Barney and/or Beast are going to have a field day with that comment. I think Eon that this is just one of those times you should pre-lube and prepare for the worst.

Hahaha :D


Must resist... will not take bait...

To be honest with you, I don't think Mill is a very good plan in this current meta. What with the availability and frequency of so many outs (Elixir, Cozy Leg, and now Colossus) and so many decent-good Self-Mill decks we have running around (where you are often just helping them to gain value or quickly power out big threats).

That said, if you are going to try and make Mill a thing, I think you pretty much HAVE to run :b: for Suffer the Past, it is the only real viable out to these sorts of anti-mill cards, as well as sniping high value targets against the Self-Mill matchups.

Esper may be an interesting option as well. It would open up some stuff like Wall of Omens to give you some more early defense/draw and would give you more Defenders for Doorkeeper. Would also allow you to run Angelic Edict which gives you another out for resolved bombs, and would be another permanent answer to Colossus/Cozy Leg (assuming they are resolved first).

Ah yes, I would never try a mill deck especially mono blue online. This is just a divertissement of mine, trying to create the best milling deck with the terrible cards we are given! :-D

You two are cute. I'll leave you fellas and your mental sodomy alone.. but try to confine it to this thread. The mental fellatio in the Bant thread about Knight of the Skyward Eye was a little much for my stomach. ;)

Beast, you need to scratch under the surface a bit more. There's so much more going on with this comment than just your simple everyday bro-l0ve.


<3 Elk. Great minds think alike eh? :D


Eon posts a pretty sophomoric build and then Elk posts a far better build on his own. Eon then says, "great minds think alike!" and at this point if I'm Elk, I'd probably insta-delete my build assuming it must be far worse than I thought it was if Eon is equating the two. Then I'd look at firebead's build on the following page and feel better about my life.


btw Elk, I finally deleted your mono-green build that I had been having so much fun with until last night when Beast ran all over it.

Oh come on now! Having a bit of terrible luck is no reason to go mashing the delete button (and by admitting you lost to Beast, you MUST have been having terrible luck!!!! No seriously man, stay in side, lock your doors and put on that bubble-wrap suit! The universe is currently out to get you!!!)

My ex-wife is Italian, maybe that's it...

Anyway, I'm just playing cuz you seem to have a good sense of humour :)

hehe, it's funny you mention Mobius cuz he was like this to me when I first started. Ended up making me better in the end but it was hilarious the stuff he would say about my lists :)

Argh, now you are even attacking me for my nationality? Terrible terrible indeed!
Thank you! I don't usually take anything too seriously in life, because in the end nobody will come out of it alive! :D
But nobody is talking about my wonderful builds anymore, sigh...

hehe, ok I'll look at your build (I haven't even looked at it yet to be honest)....

...ok, so you're trying to Doorkeeper with Bracers which gave me lots of success last night against random players. The thing is, you don't have enough Defenders for this to be really effective. I think you're going to need to get out of mono-blue and go American Jeskai or something (adding Red and White). Adding Coral Barriers, Wall of Omens, Vent Sentinels and counterspells GALORE since a single Elixir of Immortality can ruin your day. I don't know if you have a solution against Kozilek tho. I don't think it's worth stuffing in Exile spells just for him. I think instead, if he is present, you will use Vent Sentinel as your win-con.

I don't know if you want to alternatively self-mill with the Lab Maniac instead...

I don't see you posting anything better yourself Mr. fancy-pants.

Sounds to me like you are just jealous that I have the goods to bring all the Elks calling.

You and Beast just keep on stroking that Xbone of yours. Meanwhile I will be building actual decks :roll:

The possession of said fancy pants is why I don't have to share my horrible, horrible builds. Why subject myself to the comments of dicks like me?


u r right that i didn't like you getting attention from Elk. I'm like a toddler that hates his new baby sibling.

Maybe YOUR the one that is jealous of Beast and I's unplayable matchmaking lobbies on our Ones!

Well, to be fair, I never said the deck I posted was great. I was just tooling around with the idea of :u: Devotion. Which is what Elk was doing.

Seems Elk is in high demand these days!

As for you and Beast and your Xbone, I can happily say no, I am not jealous. I will be getting a PS4 anyways when I finally go decide to buy one of the next gen consoles.
