to top that, RambIe runs Gamble, Putrid Imp, Carrion Feeder, Faithless Looting, etc. but in all honesty, he seems to troll the forum because he thinks it's funny knowing that the deck-sharing forum would have people share deck ideas, and so saying that netdecking is bad is just funny to him.
When he brought up that my decks looks like ones he's played against and so he'd have an advantage over me I explained that the decks in question were ones that I had pioneered or remade, different Captain Sisay lines I pioneered after Mox Amber's printing, different Sisay, Weatherlight Captain lines I am still innovating on, Aminatou, the Fateshifter Tezzeret based stax which I effectively birthed (unlike the rest I just reimagined), and those decks that he saw as similar to mine were copies/variants of my lists, or of other people who took inspiration from them.
After explaining that on his page, and then asking him to not comment these types of things on another user's forum post, he commented on my page, on a comment that is still up as I type this. He effectively explained that he was understanding that that was not the place for that conversation and that he likes to troll people by stating these things, not personally something I am interested in, but he explains his goals there if you want to know. Hope it helps!

Aminatou, the Fateshifter is really good in a superfriends build due to her ability to flicker planeswalkers which allows them to use their ability again. But be careful with this because it resets their loyalty. This can save your walkers but if you use it wrong your walker will reset and have to build up to its ultimate again.

Maybe add Aminatou, the Fateshifter for repeatable blink?

Untap two target permanents.
This would often be an infinite combo with it. as long as you have an Izzet Boilerworks, Worn Powerstone, Sol Ring, etc. then you can untap two permanents twice for a total of five mana and untap the Guildmage. This would need Grim Monolith, Basalt Monolith, or Mana Vaultto you yeild infinite mana, though.
I'd like to see a Clone of some kind.

You could add Aminatou, the Fateshifter for the Aminatou, the Fateshifter + Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God + Oath of Teferi combo. I would probably remove The Wanderer or Elspeth, Knight-Errant

I am very excited to be a part of this amazing community. I am the 5th decklord and 4th helper. I remember looking up to users like TypicalTimmy and in my early Tappedout days, and being in a similar place to them now is a very rewarding experience.
I suppose my favorite format is Commander. I've touched upon why I don't play other formats before, but I'll say it again. I used to play Modern, because even I knew that Vintage and Legacy were way out of my league. I was running a deck I had titled "Total Extinction", after the combo of the deck: Lord of Extinction + Fleet Swallower. I was equipped with two Whispersilk Cloaks and an Aether Tunnel to better enable the combo. The rest was jank, although looking back Hedron Crab, Bloodchief Ascension, and Ob Nixilis, the Fallen probably weren't bad either. I went to a Modern game at my LGS, and it didn't happen because there was only one other person there. He offered to play his deck with mine. I accepted. He assured me that it was "just a deck he had been tinkering with".
It was a Breach Hulk deck focused around Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle. I lost turn four.
Needless to say, I didn't play Modern again.
I found Commander, and I have been playing ever since. I also enjoy Limited, as is apparent by the number of draft decks I have on this site.
My favorite deck is Yennett Simplicity. I'm a budget player at heart, and the low cost of the deck for me felt very complete. It is also the only deck on this entire site that I fully own.
My favorite color is Blue. It is, in my opinion, the most powerful color in the game. Running a deck without it is sad to me. I really want to try an Abzan aggro or Krenko deck, but the thought of abandoning my altered Rhystic Study is just alien to me.
My favorite guild to play is Dimir. I love the thought of skulking around in the shadows and milling my opponents. I am a somewhat sadistic player (one of my favorite cards is Sadistic Sacrament), but in reality I am a Simic, as confirmed by multiple online quizzes.
It's got to be Esper. All of my favorite commanders come from Esper: Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign, Sen Triplets, Zur the Enchanter, Oloro, Ageless Ascetic, and Aminatou, the Fateshifter. If I had to pick a second, it would be Jund, as I have a casual Jund sacrifice deck that's really funny. It usually draws itself out.
Card that best represents you?
Hobbies Outside of Magic?
I consider myself a Creator. I write novels, create graphic novels, and compose music. I recently finished a piece entitled "Raindrops Sonata", a moody sonata which emulates three stages of a person's life and struggle with the reality of death.
Tell us about your life outside Magic.
I'm a homeschooled sophomore in high school, so my life is pretty exciting right now. I got a 5 on my AP Biology test as a freshman, and I am gearing up to take on two more tests at the end of this year. COVID-19 hasn't affected me as much as it has other people, which makes me feel guilty, but I miss my social life. But Tappedout has given me a community to belong to in these trying times.
How did you come up with your username?
It's my old XBOX username. Deino is Latin for "terrible", so DeinoStinkus means terrible stink. Honestly, the name has become very intertwined with me over time. It is the name I use on most websites and games, including Reddit (DeinoStinkusOU), PVZ2, and soon YouTube as DeinoStinkus Studios.
What first appealed to you about Magic?
Ooh, that's funny. I actually didn't want to play it at first. I thought it was going to be too complex (okay, still don't understand Mutate or Banding), and I wasn't really into fantasy at the time. In fact, I was at a homeschooler's conference in Atlanta where some players were playing on the floor, and they offered to play, and I said nah and instead proceeded to ride the hotel's 50-story elevator over and over.
It wasn't until Thanksgiving week that I learned MTG. My uncle and cousin were coming up, and they wanted to teach me Magic. I was like "okay, fine, how do you play?" So they taught me. I learned pretty quickly and by the end of the week I had two decks: a Rakdos direct damage deck that I had brewed up and my cousin's Gatecrash Extort deck.
Why is Magic important to you now?
It's a fun game, and I'm too invested in it now to quit. Personally, I'm glad I didn't choose Standard as my format, but we'll get to that later.
What are your thoughts on the current metagame?
EDH's metagame is unique to the environment, so let's talk about Standard.
Oh my god. I'm going to make a video one day talking about the history of our Core 2021 Standard and how insanely broken it is. I hate everything about Core 21 Standard, and I'm glad I don't play it, because I would've given up by now.
Are there any cards or strategies you feel overcentralize the metagame?
That's literally Standard in a nutshell, friend.
Combo: Grim Tutor
Aggro: ha, got you there, AGGRO DOESN'T EXIST IN STANDARD RIGHT NOW!
How do you deal with an overperforming thing in your pod?
What is your approach to deckbuilding?
I think of as many cards as possible to put into my deck, then I decide on a specific direction I want my deck to go in. Then I look up cards that help that direction, make replacements, research price, etc. Then I go to my LGS and buy the cards I need. I always have backups if they're out.
Share with us some of the decks on Tappedout you feel are under appreciated.
What new products are you excited for?
Double Masters and Commander Legacy! I suppose Zendikar Rising would be interesting, but I'm not a huge fan of the early Zendikar sets. I haven't got a chance to draft a Masters set before, so I'll definitely have to crack some packs with my friend.
Anyway, thanks for the valuable experience on this site! Thanks everyone who made this place a very special place to be a part of!
