the type deck

anonymous asked:

I had this crazy idea about Genma/kakashi like, imagine Bookstore-Owner!Kakashi chilling behind the counter reading some porn when his door slams open and this very annoyed but super sexy Florist!Genma storms in heading straight for Kakashi. Genma slams his hands down on the counter, glaring at Kakashi and says "I swear to god if you don't have a book on flower meanings I'm going to murder my customer." And Kakashi discovers Genma's hot and florists couldn't give 2 shits about flower meanings.

(Thank you anon, oh my god I’ve been fiddling with like 15 different WIPs for the past 6 hours and didn’t realize that THIS is what my brain was looking for, but IT IS PERFECT.)


Kakashi is about halfway through the display copy of the newest Icha Icha book, idly swirling the dregs of the mocha Obito had brought him earlier when he stopped in to yell about Kakashi needing to fend for himself for dinner because he had a date goddamnit—Kakashi is skeptical, because this is Obito, and he’s willing to wager an empty stomach that whatever bastard has set their eyes on Obito is going to end up needing a trip to the emergency room when they show their creep colors before the second course—and vaguely contemplating whether he should reorganize the self-help section again. It’s always amusing to tell people who ask him where things are in it that he can’t help them, because they need to help themselves, and the joy those moments provide keeps Kakashi more or less sane on lazy days like this.

Sometimes he thinks he should have opened that dog-grooming parlor Gai suggested, rather than a bookstore, but then he remembers the Poodle Incident that followed shortly after and is quietly relieved all over again.

Then, without warning, the door slams open with a force that’s usually reserved for hurricanes, setting the cheerful bell above it clanging like it’s rolling down a mountainside. Kakashi startles, almost dropping his coffee, and looks up just as a pair of hands in fingerless gloves slam down on the counter.

That, Kakashi thinks, eyeing the man as he lowers is book, is a very tight tank top and a lot of very, very pretty golden skin. And muscles. Sweaty muscles, and while one would think Kakashi got more than enough of those living with Rin, who actually enjoys training with Gai and has the six-pack to prove it, these ones are particularly ropy and lovely.

The guy’s face isn’t all that bad either, even if his expression is currently just about the same level as deadly Obito’s was after that especially disastrous date with that Madara creep and the introduction to the quasi-cult he hosted in his basement.

“I swear to god,” the man says, and the words might be even, there might be a flower tucked behind his ear, but the spark in his eyes is very close to incandescent rage, “if you don’t have a book on flower language I’m going to murder my customers.”

Ah. Kakashi closes his book carefully, studying the man. That would explain the apron wrapped around his hips, embroidered with a smiley sunflower and the logo of the flower shop down the block. Kakashi hasn’t ever had reason to go in before, but now that he knows eye candy like this works there, he might just have to change that.

“That depends,” he says, offering the man a lazy smile. “Did you want Victorian flower language, hanakotoba, Hindu flower language…” It takes effort not to laugh at the expression of mingled horror and disgust that crosses the man’s face.

“God damn it,” the florist sighs, dragging his bandana off. Chestnut hair falls into his face, and he smooths it back with a grimace. The muscles in his arm and shoulder flex in ways that kind of make Kakashi want to bite them.

Kakashi isn’t staring. He’s just…observing. That’s it. Definitely not ogling. Or drooling.

“You’ll probably get the most mileage out of Victorian,” he offers, as soon as he can scrape up enough brain cells to do so. “They tend to be the most common, too.” He pushes up, stepping around the desk, and it’s a narrow space filled with displays, so he has no choice but to brush past the florist on his way by.

On an entirely unrelated note, the man has a truly fantastic ass.

“You’re a lifesaver,” the florist sighs, tucking his bandana into his back pocket and following Kakashi up the staircase to the second floor. “I’ve been open a month and I already have people asking for bouquets that are subtly vengeful or possibly interested if you try harder or—fuck, I don’t know. Why not just get a damn card? If I have to Google this shit one more time I’m going to scream.”

Kakashi chuckles, finding the correct book and pulling it down from the shelf. And if he stretches a little more than he might otherwise, making a very subtle show of it, well. No one who would mock him for it is currently here (a true miracle, and Kakashi thanks all his lucky stars for it) so he’s really got nothing to lose.

“Of all the pitfalls of the flower business I had considered, that wasn’t one of them,” he says, turning to offer the hardcover to the man. “This is the only copy I have, and it’s leather-bound and illustrated, so it will cost more. If you want to wait a week, I could order another version.”

The man smiles, and wow. Kakashi can practically feel his brain shorting out. The scowl was hot; the smile, a little crooked and very warm, lighting up his hazel eyes, is nothing short of gorgeous. “This is great, actually,” he says, taking it carefully to avoid touching it with his dirt-streaked gloves, and that is yet another mark in his favor. Kakashi appreciates a man who takes care of books. “I can display it in the store and write it off as for the business. Thank you.”

“Not a problem.” Kakashi wonders if he should push his luck, but for all his muscles the florist doesn’t look the type to deck someone for making a pass, so he decides to take a chance. “You know, I’ve got a one-time-only sale going on right now.”

The man glances up, one brow rising, and damn. Kakashi is bought and sold. Take off the price tag, no returns. He makes his smile as charming as possible—Obito calls it skeevy, but Obito also keeps dating assholes and weirdos, so he doesn’t get an opinion—and offers, “Buy me coffee and you can have it.”

Brown eyes flecked with green and gold widen, and then the man laughs, bright and warm, and grins.

He has dimples. No one should be allowed to be simultaneously that cute and sexy.

“I don’t know,” he says thoughtfully, rubbing a light finger over the engraved cover. “This looks more like a buy-me-dinner book, unless you like really spendy coffee.”

“Well.” Kakashi makes a show of considering it. “I suppose I can make allowances, seeing as I’m the owner. And since it’s in the name of keeping you from murdering people.”

“A civil servant, huh? I like a man who knows his civic duty.” The florist reaches into one of the pockets of his apron and pulls out a pale green card, flipping it between his fingers as he glances up at Kakashi through long lashes. A pause, and then he flips to Kakashi, just the barest edge of a smirk pulling at his mouth. Kakashi catches it—without fumbling, which, score—and the man steps away with a lazy wave. “I close at six. Give me a call or swing by whenever.”

Kakashi watches his retreat—and damn, that is one fantastic ass—and only glances down at the card when the bell on the door chimes again. Genma Shiranui, it reads in neat, darker green lettering. There’s a business number and a cell number both printed under it, a small smudge of dirt on one corner, and it takes a concentrated effort for Kakashi not to beam like a fool.

“Genma,” he repeats out loud, and chuckles a little at his own ridiculousness as he heads down the stairs.

There’s the thirty dollars he was charging for the book sitting in front of the till, with the flower that had bene behind Genma’s ear resting on top. Kakashi picks it up, spinning it between his fingers, and…

He’s read that flower book, and he remembers perfectly well what meaning a white violet holds, even if Genma doesn’t have any idea. What a perfect twist of fate, Kakashi thinks, and snags one of Rin’s teacups for a makeshift vase.

White violets mean let’s take a chance on happiness, and Kakashi is more than willing to do just that.

I literally thought this was fake. It is so good.

It’s really great to see a Naya Commander! It does so many different things and supports so many different deck types.

This is just good.

Power Level in EDH

It is no secret that EDH is a very diverse format - probably the most diverse format out there. A deck builder can build almost any kind of deck imaginable - from the typical control, combo, aggro, and midrange decks; to decks like Stax, chaos, pillowfort, and anything in between. However, not all EDH decks are created equal - the possible disparity in power level between any two EDH decks is potentially as large as the difference between a bad draft deck and a tuned Vintage deck - and any sort of deck in between.

Most people tend to classify EDH decks as either “Casual” or “Competitve”, but the divide between the two is both subjective and blurry. However, a good way to classify EDH decks is needed in order to better communicate what kinds of decks you are playing to the rest of your pod or playgroup so everyone can have an enjoyable experience. It would also be good to have a metric for discussing certain cards or deck-archetypes. As such, I have decided to try creating my own classification system for EDH decks:


Type 1: Jank, Draft Chaff, and Gimmicks

Everyone was new to EDH at one time. Whether from inexperience or lack of funds, many players of EDH have decks that are barely functional - containing little more than draft chaff and starter-pack rares. Their curves are nonexistent, their decks are incoherent, and their cards are unsleeved. Some may  be monstrosities containing 65 random green creatures and 35 forests, or “troll decks” containing 5-drop removal spells and Divinations with literally zero win-con. Other decks of this type tend to be gimmicks or “theme decks”, created by a more enfranchised player as a form of self-expression. Decks like “Ladies Looking Left” or “Chair Tribal” or “Mono-Red Samurai” - full of a whole lot of flavor, but almost nothing else. Decks of this type are often composed entirely of cards most players would never give a second look at, and typically cannot stand up to anything much stronger than a precon, if that.


Type 2: Casual

As opposed to Type 1 decks, Type 2 decks tend to have some amount of selectivity in the cards they play. You probably aren’t going to see random French-Vanillas in a deck like this, and they typically tend to have some sort of strategy and coherence. This is actually where I would rate the precon decks that Wizards makes every year. I would also consider decks built with some sort of arbitrary restriction - EG “no rares” or “no cards over $2”, as well as builds of “grouphug” and “chaos” that just do not have a way to win to be in this category. These types of decks are typically not exactly “good”, still containing many suboptimal choices and often with abysmal mana-curves, but the decks still tend to have some bite to them. If there are any combos in these decks, they are horribly janky and inconsistent ones, requiring so many pieces to function that it feels fair.


Type 3: “75%”

The name of this type is based off the “75%” deckbuilding philosophy, that states that the way to build an EDH deck that can handle the most competitive of players while not being unfun for the most casual is to make one at 75% power. While such a deck is actually impossible to build (anything that wants to even attempt to have a chance at so much as participating in a game with the most competitive of decks has to run the sorts of cards that more casual players shun entirely), decks of this type can pretty happily sit at a table with anything from a “type-2” deck to a “type-4” deck. While not all 75% decks out there are of this type, and not all decks of this type are 75% decks, the types of decks that philosophy builds are exemplars of this power-level. These are probably the most common types of EDH decks out there, and if you are going into a new group or store blindly, your best bet is probably with one of these.


Type 4: Pubstomp

Y’know that guy who claims he is so amazing at EDH and that his deck is unbeatable? That guy that plays Kaalia or Jhoira or Rafiq, that you just can’t beat? Well, this is probably the kind of deck he plays. Type 4 is where the gloves come off and anything goes - MLD, combos, Stax, Infect, Extra Turns, and everything else under the sun. These decks are mean, and tend to crush more casual decks out there. If you asked the average player what the best decks in EDH are, they would probably list off decks of this type. And they would be dead wrong.


Type 5: CEDH

These are actually the best decks in the format. These decks are truly degenerate, capable of consistently winning on turns 3-5 through disruption. These decks are not fair in any sense of the word, full of a who’s who of broken cards and mechanics, and anything that can’t kill everyone at once is too slow.. Storm, Doomsday, Stax, Ooze Combo…decks more broken and tuned than most think is possible in this format. There is a good reason that decks like these are often referred to as “singleton Vintage” decks. But we promise we aren’t bad once you get to know us…

thanos-caliban  asked:

Naga over snakes continues to upset me. Why not Aven over birds? Why not Leonin over cats? Because that's not the way Magic creature types work. Name them "naga" all you want in names, but changing creature types makes snakes decks sad because for some completely insane reason, snake people are now divided in two. I appreciate that you are on the right side of this.

We prioritize known types over the animal in many cases if we think the known type will be received better. Minotaurs aren’t Bulls. Werewolves aren’t Wolves. Centaurs aren’t Horses. While my line is slightly different, there’s plenty of precedence for this.

  • Shoichi, Emma, Akira, Naoki: *just debuted today*
  • Me: I want to know everything.
  • Me: What are your deck types.
  • Me: What are your tragic backstories.
  • Me: Akira, are you Aoi's father or brother?
  • Me: Are you going to be an actual character, Naoki?
  • Me: Emma, is there anyone in this universe as perfect as you?
  • Me: *hands Shoichi a razor and some shaving cream*

Jaebum the type to actually fight you when you say ‘fight me’

On Deck Interviews

When first getting a new deck, tarot, oracle, or otherwise, there are a lot of ways to bond with the cards and get to your deck.  Many people suggest a tarot spread designed to interview the deck itself, and they often include spread positions like “What will I learn from you” or “In what ways will you challenge me” etc.  These are intended to help you get a feel for how the deck will respond to your questions, what type of personality the deck will show, what have you.  I’ve often recommended this method myself, but usually along with a list of other things you can do to get to know your deck. 

But you know what?  I really don’t like deck interviews at all!  It took me awhile to figure out exactly why but I think it’s because it has the potential to set the tone for the entire relationship with your deck, before you even break the ice.  

But wait, isn’t a deck interview supposed to be the ice-breaker?  Well, yeah, but how many ice-breaker activities have you done in school, in sports, in the workplace?  How awkward have they been?  Did they give you an accurate view of the people participating?  Were you always able to give a complete representation of yourself?  If you have, that’s awesome, but I’ve always found them to be somewhat clumsy at best.  

Getting to know people (and decks!) takes time and consistent interaction.  

Another issue I have with them is that they’re often being used by newbies who haven’t yet had the time to develop their confidence in their intuition.  They often second guess themselves or limit themselves solely to the LWB, and in many cases, have difficulty interpreting a spread as one cohesive story, and strictly stick with card by card meanings.  Details are sometimes missed, tone is misinterpreted, and that’s to be expected, of course.  So I think it’s really unfair to set the tone of the relationship with their deck with just one reading.. or the same reading over and over again because what does that mean?  I don’t get it.  Lemme start over as many newbies do lol (please realize, I’m speaking from experience, I’ve gone through all of that too!)

So.. here’s the part where I offer you alternative ways to get to know your deck and get your “I wanna do readings!” fix too

  • Daily challenges!  There are always plenty floating around on tumblr and instagram and will give you prompts to use to work with your deck.  
  • Free readings!  It may seem like a big leap, but if you’ve done a few readings for yourself, you can definitely give practice readings to others.  It’s ok if you’re still using the book.  The thing is, you’ll (potentially) get a very diverse amount of questions and situation to read for.
  • Reading for past events.  Think about big moments in your life.  Ask your deck what they’ve taught you, how they’ve shaped you into the person you are today, etc.
  • Reading for fictional characters.  Gossip with your deck over your favorite fandom!

I feel like these methods are both more casual and more organic.  Using them, you will get to know your deck naturally over time, rather than trying to juice it’s entire personality out of one reading.  

If you like doing deck interview spreads, and they work for you, that’s great!  Really it is, and keep doing that.  Always do what works for you!  But if you have trouble, and you feel like you’re not getting what you needed/expected/wanted out of them, there are other ways!  You don’t have to do what everyone else does, we all have different ways of learning, we all have different strengths.  Find what will work best for you!

Pokemon Card of the Day #957: Weavile (Secret Wonders)

Weavile was an interesting supporting Pokemon. Its job was to help its teammates hit harder with Special Darkness Energy attached, help attach Darkness Energy, and disrupt the opponent’s hand if it was large. This was a unique blend of traits that gave Weavile a lot of hope, and that’s even ignoring the Water-typing while the Energy was for use in a Darkness-typed deck. Sadly, Weavile wasn’t particularly great as an attacker on its own due to its low maximum damage output, so it was going to have to find a good partner. And Darkness was not the best type. Despite those issues, Weavile actually did manage to carve itself a niche in one of the more unexpected ways seen in the TCG.

Weavile’s 80 HP wasn’t too great for the standards of a Stage 1, but it was reasonable when considering that its role was mostly keeping it out in front early in the game when most Pokemon that could reach that kind of damage wouldn’t be set up yet. Metal was one of the best Weaknesses to have, since while a few Metal-types were good, they weren’t all that common. The Retreat Cost was 0, so Weavile could easily pivot out after it did its job as the Active Pokemon to support from the Bench. This was very important since it had a job to do in each role.

The first part, and one of the more important ones, was a Poke-Power called Dark Engage. Once during your turn, you could change your Active Pokemon to the Darkness-type. This let them take advantage of the power boost from Special Darkness Energy. Believe it or not, the main Pokemon that Weavile was paired with was Gardevoir, which let it stay afloat in DP-On’s first year where there was no good Energy acceleration for it and where Gardevoir needed the power boost.

That Energy acceleration came in the form of an attack that required no Energy. Shadow Charge let you search your deck for up to 2 Darkness Energy and attach them to your Pokemon in any way you wanted. Gardevoir could get a lock up a bit more easily with Weavile’s help, though it was still somewhat slow compared to the old days with Double Rainbow Energy and Scramble Energy and paled in comparison to the later DP-On year, which had Double Colorless Energy. It was still really nice to get Darkness Energy out for any Pokemon that could use the type of Energy, however, so it was a good general-purpose support Pokemon.

Chip Off was Weavile’s damaging attack. 40 damage, when boosted by Special Darkness Energy, was solid for 2 Energy, but you’d probably want to save your precious Special Energy for things Weavile was supporting. The draw here was actually the disruption. If the opponent had more than 6 cards in their hand, you discarded cards without looking until they were down to 6. If the opponent had a ton of cards, which could happen at times, they could lose something quite important if they were unlucky. This could work out against decks with a ton of drawing support, and the game certainly didn’t lack that.

Weavile played a few roles for a deck and was pretty decent at all of them. It wasn’t one of those world-beating Pokemon, and would have loved it if Darkrai LV.X had actually been as good as people expected (it wasn’t even close), but it had enough utility to make it where other Dark-types couldn’t. In another format, Weavile would be one of the best supporting Pokemon, but it was still a good choice even in this relatively unfavorable one.

pokemon cartomancy!

So I’ve recently started exploring different methods of divination, and fell in loves with cartomancy (specifically tarot). However, I was having issues finding a deck that I really connected with. And one day I was cleaning my room and came across a box full of my old pokemon cards. Something clicked and I figured, why not use these! So here is a post about how to build and read your own cartomancy deck of pokemon cards!

✐ Picking the Cards ✐

I think a good variety of pokemon cards and trainer items/supporters is important (if you feel okay interpreting them, you can even add in energy cards). In my own deck, I have 63 pokemon cards and 15 trainer items/supporters. Have fun with this and fill it with whatever cards you’d like, just keep in mind that the bigger variety in types, the better! There’s really so right/wrong answer when it comes to what cards/pokemon you put in your deck! You can make your deck as big/small as you’d like but for an outline: average tarot deck is 78 cards. average deck of playing cards is 52 cards. average pokemon deck is 60 cards.

✐ Reading the Cards ✐  

A lot goes into reading any deck and your pokemon deck will be no different. There is a lot to consider when reading them: such as colors/images/design, attacks/moves, weaknesses, HP, and even method of attacking (ex: flip a coin, if heads add 20 damage). You can take as little or as much into account as you feel comfortable doing. (I typically take in consideration type, moves, weaknesses, and if it’s an evolved form)

When I’m reading trainer cards, I like to follow the directions. When it tells me to shuffle my deck and draw five cards, I do so, and I read them in context to the spread/question. For a silver mirror, it may mean that if you make te right moves then you’ll prevent a nasty event from happening in your life.

Spreads will help you out in interpreting these, big time. Using your intuition and focusing on what you feel is the answer is also going to give you some help.

✐ Type Interpretation ✐

This is just extra info to hopefully help anyone who’s getting started, as this is usually how I interpret the different pokemon types, but if in no way official or “right”, as depending on the spread/question and the reader, it can mean whatever feels right to you! (I do not have all of these types in my deck currently, but here’s interpretations just in case any of you would have these types and you’d like to use them

  • Grass types: Growth, health, new realizations
  • Fire types: Strength, protection, banishing, anger
  • Water types: Mental health, balance, healing, cleansing
  • Ghost types: Spirits, curses, the unknown, unforeseen outcomes
  • Fighting types: Protection, strength, grounding
  • Psychic types: Psychic abilities, spirits, protection, mental strength, dreams
  • Fairy types: Wishing, blessings, luck, purification, healing
  • Dark types: Secrets, strength, concentration, hidden things
  • Steel types: Stability, support, protection, strength, aggression, blocking negativity
  • Electric types: Chaos, power, energy boost, creativity, remove creative blocks
  • Rock/Ground types: Grounding, defense, stability, strength
  • Ice types: Emotional stability, clarity, slow changes, isolation
  • Flying types: Flexibility, sudden change, taking risk
  • Normal types: Inner strength, centering, acceptance, self exploration, self love
  • Dragon types: Balance, strength, protection, chaos, guidance, luck

disclaimer: this is a lot of information collected and written down over a few weeks so I do in no way claim this is 100% mine!

@ryoubakvra

my duelsonas are eric and odd saylor, some 20-something year old rich gays. eric doesn’t take the game nearly as seriously as odd, but plays anyways because its fun to do shit with ur husband. i dont really know anything about deck types but ill probably do research and decide later. also they’re both friends with the retired egyptian god thoth. he’s a real dick and wont let them interfere with the main storyline, so they’re resigned to being background characters.

gungan  asked:

Since Blizzard said they were dropping adventures in favor of 3 expansions a year, I kinda wish they opened the adventure/single player content gates early and let people earn all 9 of the quests through deckbuilding challenges. It feels really dirty to have to spend 1600 dust on a quest.

Well met, gungan! The furor over the difficulty of getting legendary Quest cards is understandable, certainly. It’s unfortunate that’s overshadowing the fact that Journey to Un’Goro has a lot of cool cards at lower rarity for perfectly viable non-Quest decks.

Hearthstone is still a relatively young game, and I can’t guess yet whether we’ll look back at this release strategy as a mistake. It feels right that Quests are legendary cards but it sucks that people are shut out of deck types they want to play.

I do think that future expansions (maybe once per rotation?) will include Quests, and that the next time around Blizzard will experiment with some alternative means of players earning/choosing at least one Quest.

fandomgirl-jordyn  asked:

Kira somehow managed to sneak into Yuri's room. She was looking through his deck of cards. She was actually interested in his deck type by watching him duel a couple of times. She looked at his ace monster which was Starve Venom. "Aw sweet, Starve Venom." Kira said to herself, grinning slightly. "He wins almost every duel with this card." Needless to say, she had a... crush on Yuri. But she would never admit it, probably not for a long time.

Yuri walks inside and smirks, “Excuse me, what do you think your doing in my room?”
