Vendor---------CardKingdomTCGPlayer (avg)CardHoarderCardSharkChaosCardds (UK/EU) Many are only mistakenly concerned about shrapnel, those small, solid bits and pieces of a bomb, which radiate out from the epicenter of a blast, that can kill and maim.
Physic tells us any time that happens; a vast amount of heat is generated and radiates outward from the blast. This is why detonation is always accompanied by a flash of light, the telltale sign of rapid energy release.
The heat from this energy release can reach over one thousand degrees, and can cause severe injury and death to anybody within the blast zone. As the shock wave passes by, it creates an extremely rapid increase in air pressure.
When people are hit by the shock wave, the sudden increase in air pressure can not only knock them down, but can cause massive internal injuries. As the pressure wave moves back, it can drag objects, such as broken glass and other debris toward the blast epicenter, causing further injuries and damage.
This process of over-pressure moving out, and the subsequent return to normal air pressure in the blast zone, often takes only fractions of a second to occur. Objects such as walls or shaped charges, which direct blast waves, can also increase the lethality and damage potential of Beds.
The amount and type of explosive charge used, composition of shrapnel, and the effects of over-pressure all factor into the equation. The chart below from the Department of Homeland Security provides some general guidelines on evacuation distances for various types of Beds.
Don’t stick around thinking you may get to witness a cool explosion and then duck out of the way just in time to avoid injury. There are a number of resources available on the internet and through your local library that provide an awareness of Beds and blast zones.

This can counter a lot of aggressive strategies, as well as handle late-game bombs as well. I’m actually a white player in EDS, so I fully empathize with these points that continually get brought up in the Subreddit...
As a 27-year-old adult now, I’m still playing with my brother and close friends, but the overall culture is vastly different. My whole playgroup loves to constantly build and update new decks online, whereas I myself am more of a physical Magic player.
I just prefer to actually ruffle through the cards and lay everything out on a table rather than a screen. I might be a bit of an outlier because of my bulk card collection compared to some of these friends, but I truly miss the days of actually physically trading cards back and forth, either for monetary value, deck value, or just because you love the card/artwork, rather than constantly buying or building decks by myself on a computer.
My point is this: Can we viably call MTG a “trading card game” anymore? It seems as though more and more people choose to buy rather than trade these days, and ROTC and Hasbro seem to lean into that culture more and more for obvious reasons.
Edit: I know buying singles online is technically just trading with money involved. Edit 4: It’s interesting how so many people are saying they preemptively “know what they want” so they choose to just buy instead of trade.
In my personal experience, I’ve more often than not been surprised at what I find interesting or what I want while checking out peoples collections rather than beforehand. I just put together a ] deck on a lark from the Commander 2019 recon with whatever cards I had lying around.
] nice and simple for a first timer (even to magic, but she's watched us play). My son plays his ] deck, which is weirdly powerful, his go-to deck since he built it himself (and I'm super proud of him for doing that) and comes out swinging, he has yet to learn the subtle tactics required to stay alive in EDS.
I'm instantly on the defensive, never played this deck before, and trying to figure it out, I start cranking out tokens, gaining life, which makes them both freak out, my daughter is slowly trucking along, I keep telling her, don't worry, it picks up. My son gets taken out (I'm a teacher by example :) and then it's me and my daughter, at this point, she has a few angels out, and a solid board state.
I suddenly cast ] with 24+ 4/4 beasts out, putting me around 150 life. She's cool about it, trucking along, ] and another angel that returns a creature to the battlefield at the end of each step (can 't remember its name), so she doesn't care.
Then I cast with ] out, so I have about 300 pegasuses, with ] and ]. I eventually pulled an answer to the platinum angel and ended the game.
Who can argue with the power of a free ] or ]?? Our creatures effectively cost 3 anyways, and having a stack of 5-8 drops potentially allows us to string together enough turns to take advantage.
Yes, it costs 3 to drop him, and he's gone NOT, BUUUUUUUUT, getting multiple free spells? Bacon God also allows us some extra spice and damage as a backup to Surf.
] is also a master tactician in this list, and can be dropped for half his cost, grab ], all around a counterspell, and possibly take the game from there with infinite combats! Whenever I draw “The Nuts” “Straight Gas” or whatever you want to call it I feel bad.
Getting a 4 or 5 CMC commander and value engines started by turn 2 is just kind of gross. For example last night I got to play test my ] deck and started with a trash hand, so I mulliganed into; Plains, Island, Sol Ring, Fear Stone, Sphere of the Sun, ] and ].
Turn 4 got a ] and 5 won the game with ]. After searching the internet for all infinite combo the color Black has to offer, there is not really a page/thread/video with all infinite combo with the color black.
Two combos that I know of are: ] + ] + ] = infinite damage And ] + ] = infinite mill Any time a player fetches, ramps a land, or tutors a card, they must shuffle their library afterward.
Given that it is symmetric, however, this can also impede you from digging with ], or shuffling your graveyard back into your library without losing cards from hand. In short, this card affects early- and late-game states the most by taxing a player's ramp efforts and tutoring for game-winning pieces, while being mostly unnoticeable in the mid-game by itself.
So the next question becomes, “when would putting a card from hand on top of your library be good?” Any effect that allows you to play your top deck card creates an uneven state where Widespread Panic works in your favor.
], ], ], ] and others allow you to conditionally (and sometimes completely) negate the impact of returning a card from hand to your library. This has additional benefits in situations like Melee, where the spell being cast also gets copied.
Pairing this card with ] lets you conditionally ignore your hand lock with a well-timed shuffle. ] type effects also gain traction when you can choose the CMC of your top deck.
If you're playing Miracle, there's nothing worse than drawing it at the wrong time. Otherwise, if there isn't a heavy deck-building cost, including this in a top deck manipulation deck is probably worth considering.
