King Macar, the Gold-Cursed Discussion

Sorry this response took so long, just lots of things to respond to, if I don't answer something please point it out so I can do so.
enpc: I totally agree! I've been thinking of expanding past Macar, but I want to finish the Mulligan guide and the Upgrade guide first. I'm especially excited for Mowu, Loyal Companion ! It seems really strong!
TypicalTimmy: I believe I already answered your question, please tell me if I didn't so I can
SynergyBuild: So I've got a few things to answer here. First, the deck is $9.89 at base in NM/M condition on Star City Games, so your claim of $13 on the low end is ridiculous. I specifically say I exclude shipping, lands, and tax. Essentially this whole "fake advertising" point is false, do some research and read the disclaimer before you call someone a liar. To go onto your "advice" as you call it:
1) I know abut your budget folder, hell I love it, but none of the commander decks in it are $10, none of them even claim to be so I'll be keeping the name, thank you kindly!
2) The name attracts players, which furthers the decks goal of spreading to new players
3) You know what? I did design something amazing, 165 Upvotes, 79 Folders, and constant feedback from happy players don't lie. Even if it helped one person, it's amazing and I have multiple instances of proof that it has.
4) This is "The First Good $10 Commander Deck on Tapped Out" Are your decks $10? No. Did I claim this deck is better than them? No. We are operating on two different spectrums and you're claiming we're on the same one, hell the title has gone through changes throughout the decks history when it inspired a $10 deck trend.
To wrap up your first comment, I think it was more a product of salt. Let's talk about the next comment, I like the wrap up! Definitely helps me in writing this response. I agree, that the promise of $10 per deck is not possible so it would have to go to something like $12 to help pay for tax and then buy them in bulk to save on shipping expenses. On the "useful" or "feasible" argument, I would say it is. I've met a lot of players just in my area that want to get into commander but either don't know how or don't have the money, and that's not including conventions and my (multiple) game stores. As for the time consumption, I already have a few volunteers willing to help out/donate a few of the cards to get us started. In the end, your advice had meaning, it just feels like you based it on how offended you were, which hey that's okay, I didn't choose a name like that and not expect lashback.
Boza: That's a really good point! And I think the points on why people would donate are something to look into. I know I've already said it, but this isn't for profit. What would you suggest as some incentives to get people to donate?
1) I completely agree, just like I said in the comment right above, what would you suggest as an incentive to get people to donate?
2) Yes, that is a rather low number, but when I go into college, that number severely increases, I could use the rest of this grade to set up, prepare, and then next year execute the plan. Would you suggest something different (other than not doing the idea)
3) I mean, the purpose of the deck is to control the board and get out big threats in the form of Ulamog's Crusher and Aradara Express , from a lot of reviews (both on and off site) from new players, they tend to love the deck because it's simple. It's also not super linear because you can upgrade it to a full fledged macar deck (which can also be rather diverse).
4) Swamp is the best card? I guess we've just forgotten about Mobile Garrison , Ulamog's Crusher , King Macar, the Gold-Cursed , and Kaya's Ghostform . You should probably look at the decklist before you make a claim like that.
5) I agree that I should diversify the deck choices, I talked about that earlier.
I totally agree that college will open up a lot of opportunities! Thanks so much for the advice, I'll definitely take it into consideration. Finally, with your Talrand point, I absolutely agree! I think the Commander's Quarters just made a $9.95 Talrand deck, it's super cool. That's definitely an option. Thanks again!
FSims81: Appreciate the love! The lgs idea is really interesting and it's certainly something I'll look into. I think that could solve a number of problems outlined in this forum. If I do that, I will have to make more decks, luckily wizards supplies, I suppose. I talked more about this in comment above.

CAUTION: Just because something is long, doesn't mean it's bad. Some do have a lot more to say than you think; & that's fine with me. Hell for this one; I had no other choice. Sorry about all this... :(
Also, I'll be happy to simplify this if you have "TL:DR ideas" in your head, after all; it'll be a long one hereon...
(NOTES: After using a unique technique taught by someone, & improved by another, these Final 4 Decks are too complex for me to use aforementioned technique as well as the others.
I'll have to guide each one in my previous ways.)
Well, 4 decks left. Still. After this get's uploaded though, I'd rather see the rest regarding these decks of mine rended except this one. Let's just get to the decks.

Historic Matters means unless there is something that isn't in Instant, Sorcery, or a Land, Everything else is either Historic (Artifact, Saga Subtype, or Legendary Supertype.), or something that can help with any amount of the 3 types, it get's chopped; not even a question; but a mere reminder if it helps.
64 Cuts to 100, & I believe this has potential; Infinite Extra Turns, Controlling the entire Board via some infinite Mindslaver Combo, even using Counter Manipulation for full control over stuff like your Saga's Lore Counters, & even more. Ideas for what to cut by any chance In your Opinion?
(FINAL) Even with 164 Cards in the Deck as of the current time, what exactly is worth keeping as H4X? Just think about King Macar, the Gold-Cursed ; & how he can make Token Decks into free mana? What Hidden Gems pop out to you as "Great even in the slightest."?

This deck uses Flashback Spells/Support, Mass Burn Wraths, & Self Protection from harm (The last of which is a possibility, but not confirmed yet.). However, this is already at 100 cards, so, what to swap for another card in the already existing 100 cards?
As this deck loves to manipulate Instants & Sorceries, so too should the effects other cards have in addition. Any ideas for what to swap for also?
(FINAL) Sevinne, the Chronoclasm is already capable of self protection from harm. But you, your creatures, your Walkers, all are affected by such damage; & no Pariah will ever help. As I ponder about a way to protect what I have, any ideas for Protection in Team USA Colors?

(A while back, somebody told me to give up on this project. That priveliege is both ABOLISHED & TERMINATED.)
1 (FINAL). Mono- is known to be incredibly prejudice; They oppose Artifacts, Enchantments, Anything that Flies, even Nonbasic Lands if need be. Despite the deck at slightly over 100 cards, I believe Mono- can do way better; Copper Myr , & Selvala, Heart of the Wilds are great in their own ways. But I'm NOT aiming for Elfball, I'm aiming for more effective ways to make just fine w/ the Impure. As a deck that wants to break the status quo, Which of the following would you suggest for Omnath before cutting? NOTE that I'm combining the Pure & the Impure all at once. So I made a list:
Extra Turns: Prototype Portal + Ugin's Nexus
Counterspells that behave close like : ???
Mass Card Draw: Numerous Examples.
Board Wipes: Wave of Vitriol (To name Some; basically something not color specific, & can destroy alot.)
Flying Things immune to Anti-Air Effects: ???
Artifact/Enchantment benefiting: ???
After all, Kara Vrist; potentially being forced to side with the Praetors is right about All Green Mana Life; I mean, even Elves, & Humans try & negate any opposing magic with their own (HYPOCRITE.), & they too, have Swords, Shields, etc. they too enchant for themselves & nobody else (YOU'RE AN IMBECILE!), & think Lifecrafting is right. (EVEN TEZZERET IS BETTER THAN BLOKES LIKE YOU!!!)
Apologies for a huge bunch of text regarding & their blatant Hypocrisies. :(
More to come: WIP

NOTE: The 62 Card amount is intentional; the other 38 are the deck's Landbase. In addition, This kind of CHAOS deck uses the Board's Libraries by having opponents get punished for Drawing, Discarding, Mill, being Wheel'd, etc. Same for you, except you benefit from this instead.
- (FINAL): This CHAOS deck focusses on Library Manipulation; Draw, Mill, Discard, Wheels, etc, & yes, I know they're casual. but this makes more sense. Unless you want me to swap out somethings for others? In fact, what would be good card(s) in your opinions in your case? I currently have some Adventure Creatures w/ a dose of Enter the Infinite + Possibility Storm . Are they good adds? Let me know.
Well, A Thousand Apologies everyone. I know this was just something I wanted help for, but just focusing on CMC isn't enough; unless there is a way to differentiate how cards work; this way, I would've been done by now...
I'll work on one of them; but I'm not revealing who. But I hope you're glad even though I didn't do a good job about what is needed for these four decks.
(I'll zip it from here; I've said a wall I can't even simplify well enough; unless somebody asks me nicely. :/)
Oh, & my Glint Eye Says "Hi there."

I was hooked on vehicles from the get go. Here's my vehicle edh deck. Shameless plug I know but why not show it off in the light of this article. Creatures with the Inspired mechanic work great for vehicles. King Macar, the Gold-Cursed , Sphinx's Disciple , Oreskos Sun Guide and others are great additions to vehicle centric decks. Like mentioned in the above article, some of the pilots of Kaladesh: Gearshift Ace , Ovalchase Daredevil , Speedway Fanatic ... Not to mention some of the artificers in the same block. They all mesh to create a cohesive deck that's a blast to "pilot" ; ) Some other creatures worth mentioning are as follows: Hateflayer , Golem Artisan , Night Market Lookout , Mishra's Self-Replicator , Throne of the God-Pharaoh . And Mirrorworks cuz why not, right? Of course these are for the commander or modern minded players.
I don't mean to steal the spotlight berryjon but I just couldn't hold back. The potential that vehicles hold is fun to witness unfold and I can't wait to see what WotC has in store for future releases. Keep up the Pattern Recognition articles..I always look forward to them.
VEHICLES ARE AWESOME!

- Arbiter of the Ideal - free stuff in Phenax.
- Daring Thief gives you a Switcheroo every turn.
- Pain Seer and Siren of the Silent Song are similar.
- King Macar, the Gold-Cursed lets you exile every turn.
Non-Phenax ways to untap stuff:

I play a vehicles deck as well but mine has a stronger emphasis on bonuses from crewing. Creatures like Hateflayer and King Macar, the Gold-Cursed might be worthy of your consideration. Also Aethershield Artificer , Veteran Motorist , and Weldfast Engineer all give a vehicle or two a little boost. Sai, Master Thopterist , Pia Nalaar , Efficient Construction , and Thopter Spy Network are all decent servo/thopter creators; and Master Trinketeer pumps all those creations for better crewing! Then add in Anointed Procession , Parallel Lives and/or ! Doubling Season ! for even more tokens. Start Your Engines and Aerial Modification are good inclusions as well. Some cards that we both need to put in our decks are Padeem, Consul of Innovation , Aeronaut Admiral and Built to Smash . Atraxa, Praetors' Voice and Breya, Etherium Shaper would be great in your deck! Mirrorworks ? Mirage Mirror ?

Haha no way! Ok well in that case...
Anax and Cymede could be Helen and Paris
Battlewise Hoplite for Hector of Troy
Kytheon's Irregulars as the Argonauts or the Myrmidons
Fleecemane Lion is totally the Nemean Lion
Hero of Iroas is Hercules. Just look at the artwork!
Impetuous Sunchaser is obviously Icarus
King Macar, the Gold-Cursed is King Midas
That's all I can think of for now. What a cool concept. Let me know what you think!
