Topic: Elements / any idea on killing FG with a non-upgraded deck?

Trying to suggest that Lionheart decking you out is anything other than these things (against a well built firecell) is nonsense.

This is very, very false.
What happens very often is that lionheart stops quinting it’s creatures,
for the sake of RT’ing them.
If his field is otherwise full, his hand will have filled up to 7 cards,
which means that he succesfully prevented deckout.

From experience I can tell this happens quite often. Not half the time, but still at a decent (35%?) rate.

“not selling rares” is horrible advice because you can not use more than 6 of them… why bother keeping more than 6?

because for tourneys and other events you might need unupped.
So you should keep 12. (with no more than 6 upped).

And no, its not horrible advice. Saying this comes after saying that you should not sell rares.
There is usually a long time between players getting their 1st rare and getting 13 of a single rare.

My question, I’m currently working towards upgrading a plat farmer. Considering the amount of purifies in plat, would I be better off making swallow?

better than what? pdials?
note that the 90% countering of pdials-days are over.

I’d like to point out that nearly every common plat-farmer gets countered often.
Swallow has the benefit that it isn’t easy to directly counter.
But from personal experience I can tell it also often loses against decks that don’t counter swallow at all…

So, comparing to other very known plat-farmers, you probably are.

i want to upgrade my cards but dont know how to get $1500

1) find yourself a job
2) work for a while
3) don’t spend your $’s
4) after a while you have $1500
5) now you can find out that elements uses instead of $

on a serious note, try to find/make yourself an effective ai3 grinder. Usually rushes work best.
With a decent rush you should be able to make 1500 electrum within an hour.

Another option would be to make an unupped FG farmer; firecell for example.

Also, I’d pay attention to the FG the oracle predicts every day.
Find that FG in this list.
Don’t use the decks listed there; instead, follow the links behind the FG-name.
This will take you to a thread that is all about countering that FG;
for most FG the opening thread contains an unupped deck that works somewhat decent to very good, depending on the FG.
Note that this will require some investing, but a single upped card (you get ~.45-.50 per win from FG) will easily repay the deck;
plus you can use the deck again next time you come accross that FG.

this is a known ai-quirk.
AI basically plays a singularity if it sees it can cc it immediately;
in this case it probably saw that that minor vamp could devour it.

However, when it gets to the minor vampire, it decides not to use the ability, for whatever reason.

which brings us to another way to use this card:
you can deckout the opponent more quickly, and even cause deckout if you have less cards in your deck.
This comes with great risks, though.

I figured you’d have asked by now, but the ‘mainstream’ use of this card is in rushes,
in which you generate quanta very fast, preferably by spells rather than permanents.
You are able to play the drawed cards, but the opponent isn’t (yet).

also, note that you can play your new cards before the opponent’s turn, meaning that during your turn you have card advantage, and during opponent’s turn, #cards is equal.

finally, this becomes relatively better against ai with double draw (fg, arena).

Topic: Elements / [challenge]fun for x-mas

So, it has been a while since a challenge has been posted here.
Therefore, I’m not going to restrict you a lot.


-The challenge is simple: make a fun deck.
-you can go upped or unupped.
-you can go against any ai, or players
-The deck doesn’t have to be effective, but
-It has to work regularly


A title is nice.
It does not matter how you submit your deck.
It is not required, but it would be nice if you included both the code and the image.
one way to achieve the image:
1.) go to
2.) post the code of your deck, and click ‘generate deck image’
3.) copy the url found in ‘image link’ (thanks to antiaverage to modify for this!)
4.) use this format in your post:
![paste url here]!


We’ll start voting on dec, 25, 12.00 GMT.
We’ll end voting on dec, 31, 23.59 GMT.

By all means, continue to post decks.


The reward is that you will feel warm inside, because you gave others a great feeling. If that isn’t enough for you, you will also get worldwide eternal fame, limited to everyone reading this, as long as they can remember it.

Bonus points:

each of the following gives you 0 bonus points.
They are still fun to achieve, though.
-have an x-mas themed deck/title
-give your opponent a present
-don’t use typical ‘fun’ cards1, surprise us.
-make more suggestions

-a typical way to have a deck being funny, is with a failure of the ai.
-(pvp being down kind of destroys this point) getting the opponent to rage quit may be fun, but not if your deck simply counters his. I.E.: not if your deck isn’t designed around having the opponent rage quit.

1 Cards that may get you started:
-parallel universe
-mutation / fallen elf
-fate egg

Topic: Elements / newby dictionary [fun]

nope, this time, I’ll teach elements players the meaning of the phrases ‘new players’ say, rather than the other way around.

no offense.
But If you post any of the underlying lines, at least make sure that you give arguments. There have been way to many comments involving these.

-the phrase
the meaning

-getting 500 score is impossible!
I have no idea how to build a proper deck.

-card x is way overpowered!
I fail to see the downside of card x.

-card x is extremely underpowered!
I lost with a deck that uses card x.

-in pvp i face an opponent with higher score!
I don’t know how this game works.

-the game is totally unbalanced!
I like to complain.

-the AI cheats!
The AI either uses a better deck than me, or I got unlucky

I’m about to be redirected to the chat. Please do so for me.

-magic the gathering
downvote this comment, no matter if it is true or not!

quanta (thanks to willng3 for this epic pic)

-there is 1 thing not working in the game, 1/5!
I am completely unrational, and by posting this, I want to make sure that everybody who reads this comment knows about this, and thinks that my comment deserves 1/5.

Remember, no offense. not even if you made a comment like one of the above. We all have to learn. To read through the past few comments, for example:P

Topic: Elements / [DATA]: The collection of the best decks

you seem to be a bit low on light, aren’t you?
i’d remove the morning glory right away; the controll from lobo works better…
you might even want to replace a few pillars with pendulums.
spark seems useless in here, thunderbolt would perhaps better be replaced with lobotomizer.
I currently have no idea of the :aether qi…
finally, try to make it 30 cards. If you do so, you could even go with -1 dim shield.

Tell me please if it’s ment to be like that, because i thought that accuracy 100 is 100% hit. If my guess is wright
and 100 accuracy = 100% hit then please correct the behavior of my SV-98, so i could make accurate hits even with bigger wear out ;) or, maybe, correct the display of my accuracy points to 99 or less with that number of durability points.
Thank you and sorry for my english )

100 accuracy != 100% accuracy. (there still is a point in getting ‘the professional’).
Accuracy is hard-capped at 100. This cap is the final thing to happen to it; it first calculates in other things (like durability). Thus, it is perfectly possible to get 100 accuracy without 100% durability.
Now, if you notice your SV to be that inaccurate while still having 100 accuracy… that may be a bug.
