A Magical Huffalump Resides Here

My name is Ed, I am a programmer. Just another dude with another blog. I like MTG, Open Source (more towards FREE software). I like sports, and eventually I hope to do business and do good for the world in general. This blog is gonna be about Magic The Gathering. Decklists and snippets will be posted here. It may lead somewhere or nowhere, as with all things arcane, that was bloody obvious =)

Is Magma's Reign Over?

So which is better ?

Spellbook? Magma? Golden? Silver?

This is the summary. (Which you can do for yourself of course =P)

No weapon, just bases and charm (best charm)

Spell book base + Spellbook charm

1000 raw power

power bonus = 22%

attr= 5

luck 7


Silver T + Champion charm

800 raw power

15% power bonus

Attr = 5%

Luck 13

Very Fresh

Golden T + Champion Charm

900 raw power

20% power bonus

Attr 10%

Luck 15

Extremely Fresh

Magma + Champion Charm

700 raw power

13% Power bonus

Attr = 5%

Luck = 13

Insanely Stale


So Magma is outclassed by Silver and Golden IF the champion charm is armed. If you are using a specialised cheese, say Crunchy, then Magma is still better.

I actually did a comparison to compare Spellbook versus Golden and Silver if Spellbook charm is used =)

I have always knowned the Spellbook charm is a bit of a sleeper (well at least people don't seem too wowed by it). It has served me well. But in the recent tournament, its use was pretty good. I switched from Champion charm to Spellbook charm (using SBB) and it seemed to be equivalent to the champion charm minimally.

In fact I am now farming it =D as being the power supporter, I like it quite abit (it also does help that trap effectiveness was a significant variable)

Golden cuts it pretty close, to the point that even when biasing power, I might use golden (besides Champion Charms are far easier to get). But against Silver i will still use SBB + Spellbook Charm

So is Magma outclassed? If you arm the Champion charms yes, if not then Golden is like a better Spellbook Base (w/o Spellbook charm) and Silver is like a lesser Spellbook Base (w/o Spellbook charm).
