Hey Deadpoo111. I haven't been able to get a Triskaidekaphobia deck under $5, but I think my latest deck - $5 Cursed Enchantments would be a decent shell - lots of control elements, and Underworld Coinsmith allows you to get them down to exactly 13. Maybe toss in a few Profane Command as well.

Black probably has the best cards that punish opponents if you want to at least embrace the theme and have cards along those lines I would suggest a black, red, blue color wheel because you can also do things like Demonic Pact + Harmless Offering or Donate and there is the newer card Captive Audience to slap on opponents then add things like Tree of Perdition + Triskaidekaphobia some ideas to add to any deck to fit the theme and you can go grixis staxs to further control the board examples War's Toll , Frozen AEther , Archfiend of Depravity , Crawlspace , if you want to really make them cry Ward of Bones

Your decks are awesome! As a request, could you build a deck around Triskaidekaphobia ? It was always such a cool card to me and I'd love to play it casually in modern for cheap! You rock and thanks in advance if you choose to do it!

I feel like your obligated go play Triskaidekaphobia just on principle.

While searching for cards I also found Rain of Gore as another reason to run red and Needlebite Trap as just a great card (no idea what to swap for it though).

I'm sure you're already aware and it just didn't make the cut but Triskaidekaphobia plus Tree of Perdition is a very funny wincon.

Foreword: "There are no miracles in this world. There is only coincidence and necessity, and what people make of it."

  • Yuu Himura; ef: A Tale of Memories

This is an anime I really wished I could actually watch long ago. Never again. Yuu-san is pretty much correct on this whole reality. I would've chose another quote for this, & should've, but I'll save it for Post-Throne of Eldraine release. After all, I'm mediocre compared to so many. What anime quote would you describe me the most? I'm actually intrigued... :D

Hot Seat [ˈhät ˌsēt] NOUN informal (The Hot Seat) Hotseat (noun) 1. The position of a person who carries full responsibility for something, including facing criticism or being answerable for decisions or actions. "It's been a bad week for the men in the hot seat" NORTH AMERICAN The electric chair.

(MTG Slang) 1. A group of MTG Cards placed in a section besides the Mainboard, or Sideboard used for what deserves a place in the Mainboard as a part of the deck in exchange for a cut from said board in question.

無限大虐殺の終焉の哀詩 (The Subname Kuso-Traslation is "The Dirge of the Finale of Infinite Genocide") (Note we use the Subject, Verb, Object rule (SVO), where the Nipponese swap both the Verb & Object to each other's initial position (SOV). This is the name for a Yarok, the Desecrated deck, but I seriously need help on the JP part; if any...)

(I apologize if I'm not being as concise as people want me to recently, but I'm not making multiple threads at one time; just so you can oppose me by not posting at all.)

Outside of some other decks in the works, I figured the best I can do is show what's still in the works; & explain to the best of my abilities what they need...

Naya. There is only one rule. Carry even a Godsire killing weapon, & Naya kills you worse. these colors hate Equipment, even if it's a Wolf Mount. As Tana, the Bloodsower & Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder are partners at this idea, they WILL go Anti-Meta against the Naturally Appropriate. Epuipment is the prime part of this deck, though it somehow added the idea of Sap-Swarm in unintentionally. Though I still want this to be a full-fledged Equip-Matters Voltron deck as a whole. Though the Sap-Saccing might actually be useful...

Pick on Mono- Burn as much as you wish. I want this deck to go on one speed; SoL (We got Heat Ray , which is a literal Laser, & Some card in MTG History that is Firearm Based, & isn't Australia and New Zealand based (PORTAL crap.)) This deck has only one option: Genocidal Burn. Using powerful Burn spells as well as powerful Copy Spells; & Mana Doublers among other things, to burn any to a crisp. Each Point of Damage even makes more mana for it's Commander: Neheb, the Eternal . A legitimate beast of a soldier, the more Burn you deal, the more mana you get to use even more. The only restriction I have for this deck is that I want it to break a Status Quo, superior deck archetypes pushed to a limit beyond theirs. Using cards that help w/ Sources, & even try & find some Draw-Go that was forced out of the deck. Any ideas for this is great. But I'd also like some other ideas for other Burn ideas. But just imagine a Minotaur burning you for blood sport. I wish you luck for what this deck needs; if Rummaging won't help, how about Artifact Draw? :)

ONE WORD: Triskaidekaphobia . This deck needs one thing; 13 cards cut to the legitimate 100 card standard. If Caerwyn is correct about the Competitive Meter; stated that even at 100% Competitive is actually very weak, & that this is 79% Casual being a monster to deal with; something seems off with this notion; & it's not that I'm failing But even the senior staff doesn't seem to want to address this issue; but what does More Casual, More Competitive, & Feedback each suppose to do? Nobody answered this question ever since the first time I asked. But I digress. All this deck needs is 13 cards to cut. & an audience for what is still going wrong w/ the Meter. But I'm also going for Chainer, Nightmare Adept if nobody wants to help Ol' Xantcha. But if so, HOW to restrict access from Exile? After that, Triskaidekaphobia will die. Good Luck. ^_^

Even the Unknown needs help as well. Focusing on the Morph cards, as well as Morph abilities like Megamorph & Manifest (Are Manifest Morph Abilities?), this deck is made to make discounts as Morph Sides for free, & easily draw-go's like mad. W/ a lot of awesome Morphs in there, & support for the CMDR & the Morphs as well, even stuff like Krosan Grip can be countered for reason I forgot. (Really. I actually forgot. :/) Such H4X are literally at your potential; turning over Morphs for free, discounts to make Morph Cards cast , & is a beast of a deck when your opponents can't look underneath either. Such mercy from your opponents... But what would you keep to cut? What would you cut in general? What would you replace? How would you make this concept of a TRUE Morph CMDR Deck any better?



(Get the sexual jokes out of your head; Brass will kill you if you have a joke that ISN'T of such idea (Booty? No friggen thanks.), & has her, & the Coalition to Systematically kill all MTG Staff for rejecting Firearms in MTG. (Uh, make a Spaghetti Western themed Plane of Existence already?! You have Red Dead Redemption 1 & 2, Clint Eastwood's works, Use a damn .357 Magnum in your stuff already!)

Yep, Pirate Tribal, but I'd like some improvements where Ol' Salty Brass was inept at achieving since the Ixalan Block; Even now. It seems when this is used, Pirates seem to benefit from Sheer Aggro; & can benefit from Explore effects, & Treasures. Revel in Riches is one wincon here, but this deck has several in mind, & has several H4X'd cards that can do stuff like Time Control Timestream Navigator , Pox Effects Dire Fleet Ravager , even the idea of Aggro meets Ramp makes me think; (WHAT THE HELL HAS EVERYONE HAVE AGAINST PIRATES!?) Raid & Explore Effects are great here, but the individual abilities of Pirates are where they shine.

Q&A: Why did you have to do a follow-up to something already existing?

Outside of "ADAM RUINS MTG", Yarok, Pashalik Mons Goblin Tribal, & a CMDR in Jeskai Colors that needs to be as close as Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge , Nobody wanted not to feign interest of this in the slightest; but I dunno why. Was I referencing crap again?

I included all 5 decks in hopes somebody knows MTG Slang, & sees what a Hotseat even is. Then start from there work on the next when able. Goal? To get all these decks reformed so I can get to my next two projects before I work on an "ADAM RUINS EVERYTHING" themed Vorthos/Melvin Deck based on actual problems w/ MTG as a whole. So why not call that deck "ADAM RUINS MTG". The question now is, What colors would fit Ol' Adam Conover? I-I dunno. I use 5 color as a base, & work my way there.

Also, a cEDH Boros Deck is still in the works, & I'd rather I have an actual Boros Player in the subformat help me out on that; Such people I was w/ before I doubt they were actual cEDH Players, but I'll work on the deck later on; eventually of course. I do have a list of stuff I could use though, but I want to try & finish some combos before going to make a list; Some cards though includes:

Eldrazi Displacer (Flickers CMC <=3 creatures for many kinds of Wincons)

Sun Titan (Can be Displaced Lecht & Rink to recur so much.)

Hellkite Tyrant (What? CMDR 2019 gave us a Pirate w/ huge Treasure Support!)

(I'll resume later.)

That said, I'll update this is oppose to making individual threads that overfill the forum topics w/ my name etched on it. If this isn't a good idea, I wish not to be right.

Thanks for the help, even though you didn't. Maybe this time you'll help?

JACK THE NIMBLE BUMPED INTO & RUINS ADAM RUINS EVERYTHING

Seriously, man! Do you even have Triskaidekaphobia trying to cut anything? 13 is just a number, just like 4 is the Number of the Dead in Nippon/Japan/Kamigawa even though you can just replace Shii with Yoh!

Basically put; it's only 13 cuts, better than the other things I'm trifling w/ right now. Any suggestions? You may even reduce the Fear of the number 13 by just cutting only some at a time; or do you want to know why I chose Xantcha, Sleeper Agent anyways? The answer is actually to have a Political Rakdos CMDR with the use of cards that question an opponents decisions, or even make more than one opponent at a time be forced through unconventional situations. Politics, but still having the highest amount of control. Either you make adds in Colors that exemplify this, or kill some of the demons of the night resembling Cards. I'll leave you to decide what you wish to do...

If you're already running Bloodchief Ascension , why not add in Mindcrank to make another infinite combo?

I would cut the cards that capitalize on discard such as Waste Not and Liliana's Caress , I don't see enough ways to consistently make people discard to capitalize on them. I do believe I saw 3 discard engines total, Liliana of the Veil , painful quandry and Words of Waste . Just doesn't seem worth it imo. I would also cut Triskaidekaphobia just beca use it seems too situational to actually benefit from and could accidentally kill you instead if things don't go your way.

I'm kinda surprised that with all of this black mana generation and burn being the theme, there aren't more x spells such as Torment of Hailfire or Consume Spirit . They seem like good fits here. Corrupt is sort of like an x spell, but with the added benefit of not eating all your mana. Hope some of these help.
