WELCOME, FRIENDS! :)

So this is my first attempt at creating a hub where we can all communicate!

Unfortunately, as far as I'm aware, TappedOut does not possess any functions for making a group chat (and sites like Discord or an IRC don't link to MtG cards, or keep a record of conversations). This is the closest compromise I could find.

I've set it up so you all can edit this "deck", if you want to add anything to the description or spiff up how it looks (since I'm no good at putting custom coding into deckpages).

So here's the story on this concept: I've been thinking of assembling a sort of subgroup of the most skilled EDH players/deckbuilders on this website, so we can look over each other's decks, deckbuild new commanders as they're released, etc. Many skilled eyes is always better than only one pair, when messing with a new strategy or untested card. And since I usually tag/bother the same people anyway...The goal is a friendly community who tag each other to build semi-cooperatively.

This is very much open to discussion, but here's my initial idea:

This is a group to chat about EDH and ask for advice, both on specific decks and on general brainstorming. In particular, we'll get together and brainstorm/build for new commanders when they're spoiled. Speculation is encouraged!

Although of course there's no formal obligation to do any of this, it all works better with active participation :) I at least will try to comment/look over each of the decks posted here.

I'd love help hashing out the purpose of this group further!

I think we've all met, but just to get to know each other better, let's give a short introduction...

Card that represents me: Vulpine Goliath

I enjoy making cEDH decks in my spare time, but I usually play casual EDH. I am a clinical psychologist by trade and a married father of two. I don't have many hobbies besides making magic decks and working out (so I dont die of a heart attack before the age of 35) because all my time is accounted for most days :-) I consider myself as a great magical theorist but only an average player. I often think about how to break magic cards and improve the efficiency, speed, and resilience of my decklists.

My specialty is anything with BUG in the color scheme but I have plenty of knowledge about most things EDH. I am always happy to talk MTG even if it means some wife aggro...

The cards that best represents me are Ad Nauseam and Paradox Engine. I value synergy and quality in my card choices and my decks often end up putting me on the brink of death most games due to my willingness to trade life for power. I am Spike and a Johnny, but I don't mind losing if it means I can try something outside the box.

Creature that represents me: Rune-Scarred Demon

Started playing MtG many years ago when 'Fourth Edition' hit the streets. Since then I stopped and started several times untill 'Born of the Gods' was released.... myself and a few old buddies decided to hop on the magic train once again!

These days we only play the Commander format. For me it's a mix of cEDH and fun EDH. I try to adapt myself to the group we are playing with. Fun and good times are the most important thing, something that can be achieved with casual- and competitive play.

I love shaping decks. My view on any deck is that it's never a completed project, but needs shaping and tweaking as time and sets progresses.

Summon me if you ever need help. I like to play with Green, white and black. But I absolutely dislike blue.... just cause so many people play this in my area.

Favorite color: Green

Favorite guild: Selesnya

Favorite shard: Naya

Favorite wedge: A potato

Card that represents me: Bloom Tender : Give life & take life... straight from the palm of my hand...

See my profile for more info.

Current Deck: ..This Fortress of Tears [Zedruu EDH]

I'm relatively new to MTG, I started playing during Innistrad. I only play EDH now, it is by far my favorite format.

I am the self proclaimed, "King of Misplays."

I am notoriously bad(good) at overlooking things while in the middle of an hours long game. Thus, I try to double down on studying Magic cards and interactions I'm unfamiliar with in an effort to counteract my obliviousness. Always open to suggestions, always willing to give any advice if needed!

Player Archetype: Diversity Timmy/ Deck Artist Johnny/ Analyst Spike

Favorite Guild: Boros

Favorite Wedge: Jeskai

Colors I'm NOT familiar with: GREEN/BLUE

Favorite Card: Helvault

Creature that represents me: Abattoir Ghoul

Hello! I'm AwezomePozzum, a theorycrafting Commander player from Michigan. I build and change decks here on tappedout almost weekly, but I am unable to financially support building almost any of them. Low budget, big ideas. I get really, really excited during spoiler season, for ANYTHING. Mostly Magic though.

I try and find any way to help around that I can, and I have general knowledge of EDH, other than competitive. I just don't know enough about it to provide information. (I also dislike cEDH personally)

The card that best fits my personality is Arcbound Ravager. While I am not a cannibalistic robot, I am resourceful, adaptable, and I can run like the wind. (It must be able to as well with those legs, right?)

Cheers!

Hobbies: Playing Magic (no shit), making mtg decks, annoying my friends with "dank" memes, puns, lurking on forums.

The Old Gods (Lovecraft Themed)

Commander / EDH* AwezomePozzum

SCORE: 2 | 147 VIEWS | IN 3 FOLDERS


A themed deck, headed by Wrexial, the Risen Deep. Designed heavily on one done by another person (profile link in description of deck). Added slightly more tentacle monsters for that extra world-destroying eldrazi power. Top building priority for me.


Tana Auras

Commander / EDH* AwezomePozzum

SCORE: 1 | 90 VIEWS | IN 2 FOLDERS


A non-themed, hybrid Tokens and Aura Voltron deck. Buff Tana, the Bloodsower to all hell with enchantments (and the occasional Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder ability), swing, get tokens, Beastmaster Ascension, win. Pretty damn fun, from the playtesting I've done.


The Skies of Bant (3 Custom Cards!)

Commander / EDH* AwezomePozzum

SCORE: 2 | 2 COMMENTS | 129 VIEWS | IN 2 FOLDERS


Custom commander, two custom cards. Hopefully balanced. Definitely fun.

In all seriousness, it's angel tribal, exalted midrange, aurapalooza, and slightly group hug. That's a lot of themes. It works though, one of the funniest things to do in the deck is to play political and give your opponent's permanents indescructible, in exchange for them not exiling your shit.

It can run Rafiq of the Many in the command zone and swap in 3 other cards if it has to, because not everyone thinks custom cards should be used in commander, even if your entire testing playgroup and multiple expert edh players agree they are balanced. [insert shrug here]

My real name is Ryan. I started playing sometime during the Ice Age and Homelands expansions. Stopped playing for several years (Onslaught block)and only got back after being introduced to the Commander format.

I work for the government and am currently taking up my masters in Public Administration. Aside from Magic: the Gathering, I am also into aquariums. I also played a bit of college basketball.

I play mostly combo decks. The faster the better. My philosophy in building decks, especially in multiplayer EDH is to always be on the offensive.

Here is my current project:


There Is No Cow Level!

Commander / EDH* Megalomania

SCORE: 25 | 81 COMMENTS | 4812 VIEWS | IN 8 FOLDERS


As for a card that best represents me, it will probably be Necropotence since my entire attitude towards deckbuilding was influenced by the Necrodeck.

Creature that represents me: Hypnotic Specter

I've been playing MtG on and off since about 2005. These days I mainly play EDH and a bit of Canadian Highlander. Depending on the format, I am either a Johnny combo player, or a Spike, or both.

Card that represents me? Felidar Sovereign. Sit back, chill, then one turn just win.

Favorite deck: All of Hyrule's Lands Flow Through My Deck & Balls

Player archetype: Johnny-Vorthos-Melvin

Short bio: I'm a Toronto born altitudinous lad, who has just finished certification in Pre-Service Firefighting, hoping to get on to a department. I'm also a Reviews Editor for a gaming website.

MTG was a part of my early childhood with my older brother introducing me to Mirage and Arabian Nights. There was a large gap from then and I had only just picked it back up with the release of Khans, and I've been near obsessed ever since.

I'm that person who'd have an idea for a theme or gimmick and would be up in the wee hours of the morning making sure I put that idea down in deck form.

Most here know me for the thematic decks I try to do with commander. The essence of the format is that that the 99 work synonymously with your general, so I like to have a bit of fun and tell a story if I can.

Favorite Color: Black

Favorite Guild: Golgari

Favorite Shard: Esper

Favorite Khan Wedge: Sultai

Hobbies: Magic, Medieval Archery, Video Games, Anime, anything related to The Legend of Zelda

Card that represents me: The Gitrog Monster while I'm neither a Frog Horror, or the King of Zora, I love the symbolism of what the card does - offering a true yin and yang balance of your library and grave.

Favorite deck: Erza Scarlet Protector of Fiore: Titania *PRIMER*

Player archetype: Timmy!

Short bio: I'm working on my masters degree in Library and Information Science right now. I'm also writing a comic book as a hobby. I'm 26 and I enjoy my life right now.

Favorite color: Red

Card that represents me: Laboratory Maniac that flavor text is definitely definitely my playstyle. I tend to win by accident.

Hey, I'm Tacticsninja16782, but you can call me Max, or really whatever you like. I love playing magic and have been for almost four years now. Here's a quick few facts about me. I am a junior in a performance arts highschool, focusing on piano and theater. The decks I am best at building are control decks, however I can fine tune and help with any one if you just ask :). I love philosophy, card games, DnD, board games, and a hundred other things. I work really hard on my magic decks, but also brew about a deck a day. I don't pursue many of them very far. If a deck sticks out to me as something to keep working on, I tinker and fine tune it, and you get things like my grand arbiter EDH deck. I play two types of commander. Competitive, where I really actually want to win, using decks like arbiter or narset, and funtimes, where some of my less competitive and even sillier decks come out. I think it's good to have a healthy balance of both, because not everyone in my meta is as competitive as I am, and silly fun casual commander games can be relaxing once in a while. Here are some quick stats about me.
Favorite guild: Azorius. Favorite Shard: Grixis or esper. Favorite Wedge: Jeskai Favorite color combos: RWU And WU. Favorite combo: The infinity myr combo with Myr Propagator and Myr Galvanizer Card that represents me: Toshiro Umezawa That's all there is for now, message me if you want deck help!

Ohai Dere! I'm Eiti3, phonetically 83, and I started MTG in M13 in my college years. And due to paying my way with cash, I ended up playing my first entire year with paper in sleeves. That paper Mana Crypt looks great next to that paper Forest. And it wasn't until a few months after I bought my first EDH deck, as Tribal Slivers, did I win my first game - with a Virulent Sliver I put in earlier that day. So yea, I have the greatest rap sheet of a MTG player.

Other than that, I play EDH primarily. My goal is to never netdeck and to build decks or themes that nobody has ever thought up before. Looking at any of my decks will hold this notion. Lastly, I'm a stubborn dolt who needs some rather heavy explaining done when suggestions are made. Having someone say "Nah, Gilded Lotus is a bad card, you should use Hedron Archive instead" lends no insight or reason behind it than an opinion.

Absolutely Despise , even more so when it is teamed up with .

Card that Best Represents Me: Flash of Insight. I get an idea and I must do it; plus look at that face!

Creature the Best Represents Me: Mistform Ultimus - It may wear your face, but its mind is its own. Always loved the concept of Changelings.
Hi Im Zimmers_0, the name is from one of my favorite bands Zimmers Hole. Real name is Jon and im from the grand nothingness that is North Dakota. I enjoy deck building just as much as playing. The whole strategy based idea behind MTG is what hooked me. Watching combos go off and seeing that you can do just about anything you imagine if you just search hard enough and pick your colors right. Alternative wins are my favorite next would be pain decks. Death and Taxes style decks are my next favorite. Making decisions in MTG can be hard, so I would like to make that choice even worse. I dont play to win, I play to have fun. Counters arent my favorite so ill just make you pay an arm and a leg to cast that spell then destroy it for near nothing on my turn.

At this point, I almost solely play EDH. Its to vast not to want to play and strongly suggest anyone who hasnt played to give it a try.

Short bio: My name is Mike, and I'm a 35 year old visual artist from Ohio. I learned to play Magic in 1994 with Fallen Empires & Revised cards. After high school I played on and off (mostly off) for many years until the first commander products were released. I've been commandering ever since. I have a cube and 17 EDH decks built currently and a tiny MTGO account with a few good decks.

Mazirek Sac-Storm: The Contraption of Life & Death

Commander / EDH* Rzepkanut

SCORE: 68 | 32 COMMENTS | 8989 VIEWS | IN 28 FOLDERS


Favorite deck(s): Queen Marchesa & Old school Marchesa (Yeah, I love my Marchesas)

Short bio: I have been playing magic since Revised and have been mostly playing Legacy (D&T and Lands) and Modern (Jeskai Nahiri and Tron) after the infamous combo winter. In the recent years, I have taken a lot of interest in EDH after getting worn out from the competitive scene and has since disbanded some of my competitive decks to make room for more brews. I've also enjoyed writing primers as they help people understand what my deck does and also serves as a refresher if I haven't touch that deck for some time.

Favorite color: Green (It's actually tied with Blue)

Favorite guild: Golgari

Favorite shard: Esper

Favorite wedge: Sultai

Hobbies: I love playing board games as well as anything that challenges me. I enjoy talking about politics and American history. I also enjoy hunting and camping.

Magic card that describes me: Graceful Adept (Thought Vessel with a body)...brains and knowledge comes naturally to me :)

My best friend got me into this magic and this site about 2 years ago and I've been hooked ever since. Magic really is a form of Cardboard crack.

I only play EDH but try to make every prerelease when I can.

Play style: I don't really have a particular playstyle yet. I'm still very much experimenting and trying to find my niche while getting the hang of deckbuilding. If any of you old magic hands have some advice I'm more than happy to listen.

My card: Cunning Breezedancer

Hello! Call me Champ! I'm 20 years old and have been playing Magic for a little over 2 years now.

I live in Kansas City, KS, and got into Magic at a summer camp with my friends. Been playing basically only EDH ever since, but I occasionally draft and attend pre-release.

I am an amateur artist and I love looking at and recreating magic art! One of the main reasons I got into the game!

Not sure what archetype I fit in, but I love strategies that blur the line of combo and aggro. I consider myself a master at table-top politics. I enjoy building decks around commanders and revolving the strategy around them. I enjoy deckbuilding more than playing, which is a lot because I love playing!

Thanks all!

Favorite Deck: Invincible Under the Sun 天下無双

Player Archetype: Johnny-Spike

Hey guys, my name is Cal. I am from Michigan and I am studying Information Systems with a minor in Information Security Systems. I have been playing MtG since the Theros block was released, and I primarily played in the Modern and Standard formats. However, since I was introduced to Commander it has quickly grown to become my new favorite format. I watch a crap ton of anime and that's about all you really need to know about me. Blue is almost always an auto-include in every multicolored deck of mine because there's nothing I love more than holding onto a counterspell to potentially shut down or cripple an opponent's gameplan. Control and combos are two my favorite deck strategies because I get a sick pleasure out of inconveniencing and annoying other players. I try to be on here just about every day if I can so holler at me if you want me to check something out and I'll gladly try to help in any way I can!

Favorite color: Blue

Favorite guild: Dimir

Favorite shard: Esper

Favorite wedge: Sultai

Card that represents me: Gilder Bairn

I chose Gilder Bairn to represent me because it's just my favorite creature card art of all time. He looks like such a wholesome boy dressed up in a frog costume which reminds me a lot of Naruto when Jiraiya and his students dress up in frog costumes. I don't know, he's just a really really good boy and I can't express how much I love this card. Even the flavor text is something that resonates with me quite well because you can tell how naive this little Ouphe creature is, and even though he's not sure where the path of lights will lead him, he follows it anyways. He's just going along for the adventure which is how I tend to play Magic.

I started playing Magic in Seventh Edition, though I took a pretty long hiatus after Scourge due to my friends deciding they were too "cool" for Magic (philistines). I picked the game back up in law school shortly before Khans of Tarkir, and have been playing since. I generally consider myself a Johnny player, preferring to build decks around unusual or interesting cards.

Creature: Grand Arbiter Augustin IV. I personally identify as having Azorius colours, though, I've been told my sarcasm, dark humour, and judgmental side firmly put me in Esper.

Favourite Colour: Blue

Favourite Guild: Azorius.

Favourite Shard: Esper.

Favourite Wedge: I'm a bit torn on this one, Jeskai is the colour combination that most resonates with how I enjoy playing the game, but I've built and played a couple Mardu decks that have been pretty fun, despite my regular aversion to aggressive decks.

Feel free to add your own! :)

I've only included decks posted in this group that have been commented on by three or more Deckwatch members, to keep this list from spiraling out of control :)
