Have you ever wanted to break a fundamental rule of Magic? Is your commander group's play style getting stale? Well look no further!

The creator of Magic the Gathering has made a comeback and wants you to join him! He'll be leading your army of Black Lotuses, Ancestral Recalls, and Time Walks into pure stupidity! But you may be asking yourself, "Aren't those cards banned?" "How would this work?" or even, "Who in their right mind would try this?" Well, the answer is yes, yes, and more yes!

This deck is for casual Commander players ONLY, and is for people who don't really want to play, they just want to ruin everyone else's day.

The main idea of this deck is to get out your commander Richard Garfield, Ph.D. out early, but have some protection out so that he won't get countered. Cards like Sol Ring will help get him out earlier than normal, and cards like Mana Leak will protect him as he's being cast (as literally player who could counter him will) so cheap counters help in this aspect.

Once Richard Garfield, Ph.D. is out, you will basically have won the game because every card in your hand becomes a good card! Every land becomes a Mox or a Black Lotus, Every one mana cost card becomes Ancestral Recall, and every two cost card becomes a Time Walk! Just using these gives you so much value that can make you win, but it also helps to have an infinite combo like the famous Sword of the Meek + Thopter Foundery combo, or Dark Depths + Vampire Hexmage for a 20/20 indestructible flier, or how about the classic Splinter Twin + Deciever Exarch for infinite Exarchs? While it is true that you can only cast one instance of each card for each time he's out, when you copy cards like Cloudshift you can re-play all the cards that you cast earlier.

All in all, this deck just exists for the pure stupidity of breaking the game, and twisting Magic the Gathering to it's limits. You have my thanks for reading this.

You can't use multiple Ancestral Recalls or Time Walks because you can only use each card once according to Richard Garfield, Ph.D.'s text ("You can't choose the same card twice.") Also Mana cost includes color, so no Vampire Hexmage. Other than that I like the deck and I hope your friends let you play with it! :D

Also, lands don't have mana costs. If you want to cast Black Lotus you need to add artifacts with a mana cost of 0.

Play however you want with your friends, but you're very far from how this card is supposed to work.

1: he retains memory through flickers
2: can only use cards legal in the format
3: cost includes color
4: lands have mana cost= null set, not the number 0. They don't even have the same cost as each other.

You can, however, have your islands be other lands as you play them. You can get the Urzatron over the next 3 turns. Or if you really want your Marit Lage token, play a land as Dark Depths, cast Savor the Moment or Time Warp, then play Thespian's Stage the next turn.
