Hey it's doing quite well in my Kaalia EDH deck, but I need a spot for Avacyn in there so I'd be willing to sacrifice it for a trade ;)

But really, I think 2 resto angels would do this deck nothing but good. More flicker AND more flying, what's not to like?


Oooh, I hadn't considered adding her to my Kaalia deck! Thanks for the idea! Last time I ran her, I managed to get an Utvara Hellkite on the table the first time she attacked (with a Moonsilver Spear!). The swarm of dragons and angels was beautiful ;)

I have also recently added Sarkhan the Mad; this guy can do a TON of damage with his ultimate if you have enough dragons out. He combos very well with Utvara Hellkite. Here's a link to my deck if you want more ideas: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/kaalia-has-add/

I found another event Deck at Gabis (they are getting hard to find) and picked it up. So I now have another Thragtusk as well as several other relevant cards.

So I have two Tusks now, need one more.

Ed has one that I'm sure he would trade for something neat.

Speaking of event decks, what exactly are they? Are they just a different prebuilt deck, similar to the intro decks, or do they serve a different function?

Event decks are like the intro decks except they are more competitive and are "designed" to be played in a Standard tournament. The recently released Golgari event deck is remarkable because it retails at $25, but has multiple expensive cards in it including a Thragtusk and a Woodland Cemetery.

I do, in fact, have a Thragtusk that I may potentially trade.

I'm looking for all of the old Planar Chaos/Invasion dragons, if you have any. I also want their respective lairs, charms, and attendants for an awesome (but casual) EDH deck I am putting together. If you aren't sure what I am talking about, check out the deck: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/dragonball-z/

I got the third Tusk I was looking for, though a fourth couldn't hurt. I don't have any of those older cards though.

Sad, but I expected as much. I'm sure you have something that would be a good exchange for a tusk. Perhaps a deathrite shaman?


Also, what does midrange mean?

Midrange is a deck style that seeks to win during the middle of the game, rather than the beginning (aggro) or the end (generally control).

It's often got some ramp, and generally plays larger creatures such as Thragtusk to recover life lost during the early game and then start the beat-down.
