Blog the Magic Gathering

A poor man's blog for Magic the Gathering (MtG), Wizards of the Coast (WoTC), deck construction, cards, combos, game play, MtG podcasts, etc.

What is "Magic: the Gathering"? Magic is a collectible fantasy-themed playing card game kinda combining Uno, War, Chess, and art dealing: match colors, draw 4, high card beat low card, different cards attack in different ways while you ogle hot chicks and dragons drawn by your favorite artists on cards you can sometimes sell for big money.
It's Pokimon for grown ups. Srsly, get your Pokimon player a Magic deck and they'll instantly sprout pubes and consider a career as a mathmatician.

Mono-Red Elves


Tom wanted Mono-Red Elves, so I did my best. :)

You could use all Mountains, but at first glace the closest you could get to Mono-Red Elves is Red Green Elves, or Red Green White:

Radha, Heir to Keld rg
Yavimaya Barbarian rg
Knotvine Mystic rgw
Mayael the Anima rgw
Marhault Elsdragon 3rrg

Radha, Heir to Keld rg Legendary Creature - Elf Warrior Whenever Radha, Heir to Keld attacks, you may add rr to your mana pool. Tap: Add g to your mana pool. (planar chaos)

Yavimaya Barbarian rg Creature - Elf Barbarian Protection from blue 2 2 (invasion)

Knotvine Mystic rgw Creature - Elf Druid , tap: Add rgw to your mana pool. 2 2 (conflux)

Mayael the Anima rgw Legendary Creature - Elf Shaman , 3rgw: Look at the top five cards of your library. You may put a creature card with power 5 or greater from among them into play. Put the rest on the bottom of your library in any order. 2 3 (alara)

Marhault Elsdragon 3rrg Legendary Creature - Elf Warrior Rampage 1 (Whenever this creature becomes blocked, it gets +1/+1 until end of turn for each creature blocking it beyond the first.) 4 6


You could paint them red after they're in play with spells like Crimson Wisps.

You could paint them Red before they're in play with Painter's Servant, but that would make them Multicolored-Red.


Other than that, you'll have to go to the only Mono-Red Elves there are:

Fire-belly Changeling 1r
Blades of Velis Vel 1r
Taurean Mauler 2r
Changeling Berserker 3r
Warspike Changeling 3r


You can use Mono-Red "Elves" with spells like Shared Animosity (2r) and Door of Destinies (4), naming Elves, but you could just as easily name it Mono-Red Zombie Squirrels.

Door of Destinies 4 Artifact As Door of Destinies comes into play, choose a creature type. Whenever you play a Zombie Squirrel spell, put a charge counter on Door of Destinies. Zombie Squirrels you control get +1/+1 for each charge counter on Door of Destinies.

Note you only have to "play" the spell, not have have it resolve, so this would be nice against control decks and you may also consider bouncing and recursion, like Fossil Find r/g.


Viola! Mono-Red Elves. :)

Elves, Squirrels, what's the diference? ^_^


But if you stray from your colors just a tad, look what you can get!

Lord of the Undead Squirrels 1bb Creature - Zombie Other Zombie Squirrel creatures get +1/+1. 1b,Tap: Return target Zombie Squrriel card from your graveyard to your hand. 2/2

...endless recursion of Nameless Inversion?

SQUIRREL POWER! ^_^


------------------------

Blades of Velis Vel 1r Tribal Instant - Shapeshifter Changeling (This card is every creature type at all times.) Up to two target creatures each get +2/+0 and gain all creature types until end of turn.

Fire-Belly Changeling 1r Creature - Shapeshifter Changeling (This card is every creature type at all times.) r: Fire-Belly Changeling gets +1/+0 until end of turn. Play this ability no more than twice each turn. 1 1

Mutavault Land tap: Add 1 to your mana pool. 1: Mutavault becomes a 2/2 creature with all creature types until end of turn. It's still a land.

Taurean Mauler 2r Creature - Shapeshifter Changeling (This card is every creature type at all times.) Whenever an opponent plays a spell, you may put a +1/+1 counter on Taurean Mauler.

Changeling Berserker 3r Creature - Shapeshifter Changeling (This card is every creature type at all times.) Haste Champion a creature (When this comes into play, sacrifice it unless you remove another creature you control from the game. When this leaves play, that card returns to play.) 5 3

War-Spike Changeling 3r Creature - Shapeshifter Changeling (This card is every creature type at all times.) r: War-Spike Changeling gains first strike until end of turn.

Door of Destinies 4 Artifact As Door of Destinies comes into play, choose a creature type. Whenever you play a spell of the chosen type [Elf], put a charge counter on Door of Destinies. Creatures you control of the chosen type get +1/+1 for each charge counter on Door of Destinies.

Shared Animosity 2r Enchantment Whenever a creature you control attacks, it gets +1/+0 until end of turn for each other attacking creature that shares a creature type with it.
