    I am sorry that I already posted it, but maybe this is the better place for a custom card than an own thread.

    Gruul Elemental 2 R/G mana R/G mana <- Name still not sure / not fitting for the mechanics. I would like to have something more generic nature based

    Creature - Elemental
    When Gruul Elemental enters the battlefield,
    destroy target artifact if R was spend to cast Gruul Elemental.
    When Gruul Elemental enters the battlefield,
    destroy target enchantment if G was spend tocast Gruul Elemental.
    Evoke R/G mana (You may cast this spell for its evoke cost.
    If you do, it's sacrificed when it enters the battlefield.)
    3/2


    I was inspired by Ingot Chewer and Fragmentize and the card Wear // Tear Another member in the forum mentioned the card Hull Breach which is very similar. I already changed the 3/3 stats to 3/2 so it is not completely better than Ingot Chewer because it is anyways. But now it dies to Shock in Standard and Thalia, Guardian of Thraben in Modern.

    Thank you very much for the feedback. Text version is now edited. I was not pleased, that this is ingot chewer but only better, so I really like the idea of you and make it a 3/2 so it dies to Thalia (for Modern and such) and Shock (for standard). You are also 100% right that it would belong more in a Lorwyn block area, but honestly I was not able to come up with a better name at that point and (self shaming on me) I was a bit too exited for Gruul Clan in the next set. My first Idea was Burning-Tree Elemental, but someone used that name before. I will think of a better name and edit the card.
    New Version:

    Gruul Elemental 2 R/G mana R/G mana
    Creature - Elemental
    When Gruul Elemental enters the battlefield,
    destroy target artifact if R was spend to cast Gruul Elemental.
    When Gruul Elemental enters the battlefield,
    destroy target enchantment if G was spend to cast Gruul Elemental.
    Evoke R/G mana (You may cast this spell for its evoke cost.
    If you do, it's sacrificed when it enters the battlefield.)
    3/2

    Hello, I am actually not sure if I am supposed to post my card here, but I would like to hear your opinion on this bad boi: Gruul Elemental.

    EDIT:
    Gruul Elemental 2R/R/

    Creature - Elemental
    When Gruul Elemental enters the battlefield destroy target artifact
    if R was spend to cast Gruul Elemental
    When Gruul Elemental enters the battlefield destroy target encahntment
    if G was spend to cast Gruul Elemental

    Evoke R/
    3/2

    basicly when you play GRx you can destroy 1 artifact / enchantment for 1 mana or do both for 4. I am not sure if that is too powerful already but I see cards like Ingot Chewer or Fragmentize and maybe this could work as well. I am mostly unsure if 3/3 is too strong of a body I would most likely change that if I had to power it down or also rewuire the target to be CMC 4 or lower.

    Also: why not evoke on other permantent types like enchantments with ETB + On going effects. What do you think about that?

    Thanks for the answers, really nice of you.
    only one question that I have remaining:

    I really like the dead // gone for Thalia, Meddling Mage and Eidolon <3


    Thing is, shriekmaw does the job just as well if not better (against eidolon you don't lose life). The only time i'd want dead//gone is to supplement shriekmaws against humans where they might try to name all your answers so you need to diversify.


    Do you lose life for "Dead"-ing the Eidolon? Is'nt it CMC=4?

    Lot of burn in the US Grin

    http://www.starcitygames.com/decks/StarCityGamescom_Modern_Open/2018-09-15_modern_Syracuse_NY_US/1/

    But I love that list! It has everything i want in and even finds space for dead/gone. That will be my base list now for sure!


    Glad you liked my list Smile

    In hindsight I was just "okay" with it, I wasn't particularly happy with dead//gone but felt that I had to pick a direction to hedge in as oppose to spreading myself too thin. The decision was between that or slaughter games, so in a sense, I was okay with dead//gone even though it felt like the weakest card in my 75.

    The biggest issue though was the amount of burn floating around. The black leylines were new this weekend and I was previously on white leylines before (taking the exact spots as the black ones this week), I could've been mightily punished by facing just even one more burn deck or facing one of the two in the top 8. Unless burn had an absurd day 2 conversion rate (meaning a very small pool of burn total in all 800+ players), I felt not having white leylines was the incorrect read.

    That being said, still happy with the tournament overall. The only mistakes I made were on camera (embarrassing, I know) but I played cleanly for the other rounds. The benefits of being essentially a one trick pony is that i've pretty much seen it all and from the technical rules to the match up specifics and even mulliganing is like muscle memory at this point whereas my opponents were constantly second guessing themselves and were somewhat unsure of how to approach the match up.

    I got a question concerning the 3 Beast Within and 4 Ingot Chewer. What made you choose these hard commitments against artifacts alone in the sideboard and also 3 Beast Withins in the main? I personally like 2 Beat Withins (in the main) and 3 Ingot Chewers and 2 Krosan Grips in the sideboard. What is the Pro argument for your split? The other question is what do you think of playing Brindle Boar in the side board. Is it worth to try and beat Burn or is all hope lost against that deck?

    Can someone please enlighten me on the usage of Archfiend of Ifnir. I do not understand why you mainboard or even play that creature anyway. If they Graveyard hate you or deal with your general strategy it IS the bast creature you have. But even then you need cyclers to take advantage of him really and that requires even more mana in most cases. I like the idea of having more interactive evokers in the mainboard more but maybe some of you can educate me on why this archfiend is worth being played. Thank you Smile

    I still find it hard, because I don't know what they are going to sideboard. Including to the hard Main board, they could go Rest in Peace (then i would just Living End, because they loose the creatures too) but some lists also run Negate. I may change my sideboard so I have 1 more Shriekmaw. I used to be a very big fan of Anger of the Gods, but against humans it just gets stolen or it costs 4 Mana because of Thalia and the ony deck where Anger is really good is against dredge (at least I can not think of another right now)

    In general: What would be a good sideboard list right now?

    I really had problems against a rather casual looking spirits deck that ran 4 Mausoleum Wanderer, 3 Selfless Spirits and 4 Spell Queller.
    As you can Imagine, he countered and Sacked his dudes in response to Living End and even when I played my anger of the Gods from my sideboard, he just made some guys indestructible. + All his creatures had Flying. I have 3 Faerie Macabre after sideboarding but I just can't win.

    Does anyone know what I could have done? Or is this just a horrible matchup?

    Also: I had the Idea playing with "Krosan Grip" in the sideboard because I can destroy the Relics without the opponent activating them AND the Leylines. But I am not sure.
