This entry is part 19 of 79 in the series Rival's Duel
By Eric Bonvie and Nole Clauson

378127_10150441621792624_1477312954_nrdorange smallnolenew90Welcome to another edition of Rival’s Duel. This episode was recorded the night before the conspiracy set was completely spoiled (yay for timing!) and this is therefore NOT a conspiracy set review. Instead, Eric and Nole take a crack at something new. There is no argument this episode. Instead, Nole and Eric try to work together to build a primer on how to build a deck based around one of the new conspiracy legends. Will these to heated rivals be able to come together and build a deck? Give us a listen and find out?

(Our apologies for the less than standard audio quality. Apparently the hamsters that power the internet in Eric’s computer cannot handle Eric pulling up gatherer and talking on skype at the same time.)

0:00-23:04 A conspiracy is afoot!

It’s time for the annual Wizards summer product. This year, conspiracy has dumped several new Legendary creatures into the Commander card pool. Eric and Nole review the three we have not talked about, as well as the spoiled M15 legend. We also got to, apropos of nothing, hear Nole confess his sins of comboing off and why he now and forever will hate the card Mana Flare.

23:05- 42:06 Commander Spotlight: Marchesa, the Black Rose

So both Eric and Nole have fallen in love with this dangerous lady. So much so in fact, that they are setting aside their differences to try to build the shell of a deck around her. Listen as Eric tries to keep Nole on track from adding a bunch of weird stuff to their new lady crush’s deck.

    Enjoyed the Deck Tech segment, plus a reminder that some of us listen for the purpose of wasting time. Some suggestions of cards for the deck; Oona’s Blackguard, Pyreheart Wolf, Erebos, Greed, Phyrexian Reclamation, Dack’s Duplicate, Flayer of the Hatebound, Sapphire Drake, Fire Covenant, Necropotence, Thassa, Bident of Thassa, Phyrexian Arena, Underworld Connections, Bloodgift Demon, maybe Baleful Force, Mikaeus, Sage of Fables, Desecration Demon, I like putting Grave Titan in this list because he just.makes more dudes, Eric may agree to Tempt with Vengeance

    Undying and Mikeus the Unhallowed. Your creatures come back if they have counters, and if they don’t, they come back with counters. I love it with persist guys too, but undying seems tailor made for it.

    Loved the show guys. I’ve always wanted to build a Grixis deck, but I was never really enamored of any of its generals before now. Marchesa might just change my mind :).

    With every little thing that appears to be building inside this specific subject matter, your viewpoints happen to be rather stimulating. However, I beg your pardon, because I can not give credence to your whole strategy, all be it radical none the less. It would seem to everyone that your remarks are actually not entirely justified and in actuality you are generally yourself not fully certain of your assertion. In any case I did take pleasure in looking at it.

  6. I’m sure this can be probably the most important information in my situation. And im glad reading your article. But should remark on few general things, The web site style is extremely good, the articles is very excellent : D. Good job, cheers

    Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  8. Iím not that much of a online reader to be honest but your sites really nice, keep it up! I’ll go ahead and bookmark your site to come back later. All the best
