Karador, Ghost Chieftain Discussion

Neither. The ultimate reanimator commander is Karador, Ghost Chieftain

I had Anafenza, the Foremost in the deck, but didn't really like her in it. I have been looking for a spot for Karador, Ghost Chieftain for a while now though.

Anafenza, the Foremost and Karador, Ghost Chieftain would be really good fits as well.

My meta is primarily, Karador, Ghost Chieftain reanimator, Brago, King Eternal stax, Riku of Two Reflections combo, and Meren of Clan Nel Toth hulk combo. I'm the last one to the party as far as trying to build a more cEDH deck. So I'm just trying to become competitive in my meta.

How often do you have the ability to put geralfs messenger or woodfall primus on the battlefield compared to how often you can have ghave? Commander combos will be easier to do than other combos because you always have access to the commander. By playing ghave as the commander and not playing to his strengths you are crippling yourself. Switching to Karador, Ghost Chieftain gives you better access to cards in your graveyard and in doing so protects the combos that you are currently using, plus late game he almost always only ever costs WBG.

I hope I haven't offended you by any means, I just want to give my honest opinion to help you as best as I can.

That's more of a meta based card. Probably wouldn't make sense for most, I have it in here for one of my friends Karador, Ghost Chieftain decks and talks of future shadowborn/relentless rat decks.

SteelSentry on crazy netdeckers

(quick disclaimer, I don't play Modern but this question intrigues me)

A lot of the discussion around this topic, as far as I can see, is miscommunication over why the game is "fun". I see a lot of netdeckers mad at brewers for how superior they act because brewers think that building the deck is the fun part, and tournaments are the testing ground. On the flipside, I see a lot of brewers mad at netdeckers, because netdeckers see building a deck as legwork to get to the fun part, which is playing at the tourneys.

It's easy to point out someone at their worst and assume that's how they always act. OP's story did make the unnamed Spike look bad, but I have heard plenty of stories on the flip side, where a friend I had that plays Shadow gets crap from zealous homebrewers about how his deck is "boring" and he needs to "try building your own deck instead of downloading one online". It's a big game, and there's plenty of room to enjoy the game the way you want to.

Drawing a parallel to my escapades in Commander (the main format I play, but it is fun to dip my toes in Standard or Modern from time to time), I build a lot of budget or junk decks. Budget brewing is now one of my favorite things to do, but I understand that it is a niche, and I've had to train myself not to get salty at people at my LGS playing their tuned Karador, Ghost Chieftain combo deck or the high roller Atraxa, Praetors' Voice Superfriends player that easily has around $1500 invested in their deck between ABUR duals and pieces like Force or Tabernacle.
