Dime a Dozen #100: Achievement Unlocked

Today Dime a Dozen hits a huge milestone! Jason plays multiple decks in the Pauper 2-Man Queues in an attempt to unlock ‘achievements’ related to the number 100.

Hi folks!

This is Dime a Dozen #100.

That’s a lot of Dime a Dozens.

I’ll try to keep the yapping to a minimum, but I do want to thank you all very much for checking out and supporting this column over the years! A huge thanks to A.J. and everyone else at MTGO Academy is also in order. It’s been a pleasure recording videos and writing articles here (and will continue to be).

Once again, thank you all very much!

Now let’s get down to business.

For today’s videos, we’re trying to hit 100 any which way we can.

Making 100 mana. Gaining 100 life. Making 100 tokens. Dealing 100 damage.

This is going to require multiple attempts, with multiple different decks.

For our first attempt we have (make 100 tokens, gain 100 life):


Next up we’ve got (make 100 tokens, gain 100 life):


This is more difficult than I thought…

…Let’s just try something stupid while we’re at it (gain 100 life):


Okay that was hilarious.

Let’s completely sell out and give it one more shot (make 100 mana, deal 100 damage):


Achievement unlocked! In tragic and hilarious fashion, no less.

End Step

If anything these matches have taught me that getting to 100 of anything is not easy. This is why I’m so happy to have reached 100 installments of Dime a Dozen, and I hope all of you are looking forward to installment 101 and beyond!

  1. Congrats on hitting 100 episodes Jason! Any Eldritch Moon cards got you excited? I really like Wretched Gryff and Bloodbriar. Gryff is pretty obvious where that card goes. Currently trying to find the best deck for Bloodbriar, tons of good cards to pair it with like Vessel of Nascency, Nest Invader, Young Wolf, Yavimaya Elder, Sakura Tribe Elder, any Echo creature, Eldrazi Scions, Clues, Spheres…and that’s just in green/colorless. Plenty of black creatures that love to sacrifice stuff. And as always I’m going to leave you with a wacky decklist, any suggestions…I give you “Metalcraft Jund with Tron”

    4x Vault of Whispers
    4x Tree of Tales
    4x Great Furnace
    4x Urza’s Mine
    4x Urza’s Tower
    4x Power Plant

    3x Fangren Marauder
    3x Gurmag Angler
    3x Bleak Coven Vampires
    2x Ulamog Crusher
    2x Kuldotha Rebirth

    4x Lightning Bolt
    4x Galvanic Blast
    1x Rolling Thunder

    4x Chromatic Sphere
    4x Chromatic Star
    4x Prophetic Prism
    2x Expedition Map

  2. VanillaVillain – Much appreciated man! Nothing that excites me too much, though I have been facing the Bloodbriar a lot in practice. Some of the emerge creatures are showing up too. That list is pretty wacky indeed! Let’s test it when possible.

    Anonymous – Thanks a lot guys!
