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.

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!

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 Ravagerfoil icon. 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?)


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


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


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


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


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 casual EDH and a bit of Canadian Highlander. My preferred playstyle is definitely combo. I am a hardcore Johnny, combo player at heart.

Outside of MtG, I work as a Mechatronics Engineer to pay the bills. Other than that, I have been rock climbing (almost exclusively indoor) since mid 2013 and have been doing taekwondo since early 2014. Between that and the occasional bit of video gaming, the girlfriend and family/friends I lead a pretty busy life.

Also, you might notice that I respond to posts at odd times. This is because I'm from sunny Queensland, Australia.

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

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

Card that represents me: The Gitrog Monsteralter icon 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!

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: JeskaiFavorite color combos: RWU And WU. Favorite combo: The infinity myr combo with Myr Propagator and Myr Galvanizer Card that represents me: Toshiro UmezawaThat'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.

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.

My Favorite deck creation:

Mazirek Sac-Storm: The Contraption of Life & Death

Commander / EDH* Rzepkanut


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

It doesn't work on mobile, though. Any idea how to fix that?

Zimmers_0 says... #3

I dont think ive seen a background on mobile before. Do you have an example so I can steal the code?

Also, saw a goofy ass deck on EDHREC. It abuses cards like Chronatog to skip your turn so triggers happen on everyone else's turn but not yours.

Sulfuric Vortex, Manabarbs, Havoc Festival, Spellshock,Smokestack, Dovescape, Planar Chaos are some of the big cards and all you do is set up your board and skip your turn over and over.

Link if anyone is interested

Thought this was hilarious and I might make take a swing at something similar.

Got something for everyone to look at:

Let me know what you all think. Seems slow and wonky still, but I know there are some crazy turns possible when you have a few WUBRG cards in hand to cast with a Ramos in play. Especially with Leyline of Anticipation or Vedalken Orrery out too, then you can do it all whenever.

Ramos, Dragon Engine + any x2 WUBRG costed creatures like Cromat & Atogatog + Cloudstone Curio + Deadeye Navigator = infinite mana of all colors but blue. Seems kinda ridiculous but technically functional. I feel like there's gotta be easier ones, but that's a start. Its a casting trigger too so you have the mana before the spell that triggered it even resolves. There's gotta be something exploitable there as well. Ramos just screams "break me" to my inner Johnny. And just going Voltron and beating down with him is a great plan B too.

Hostage Taker, my muse, my flame.

Hey Daedalus19876 : this is cool for guys like me. More options, more tough choices to make. But such a drastic change, just to make it yet again easier for newbs, is something that I feel is not really nessesary. The planeswalker rules made perfectly sense if you ask me. But all planeswalkers will get their oracle text updated because of this?

August 29, 2017 3:04 a.m.

Rzepkanut says... #35

I think having only one uniqueness rule for legendary permanents isn't just better for noobs its cleaner game design in general. I'm pleased with the change it should be intersting to see if it creates some new strategies or decks anywhere. Gideon tribal could be a real thing and so forth.

And sunbird invocation is so fun looking I'm amazed by it. Also hostage taker and rivers rebuke seem like immediate EDH staples. I'm extremely excited for Ixilan, more than I was for the last few sets during preview season. Cool designs and fun flavor tightly wound altogether.

August 29, 2017 7:40 a.m.

Zimmers_0 says... #36

So I want to make another immortality deck and I was thinking of putting tribal gideon into the mix for Gideon of the Trials. Especially with the new rulings on planeswalkers. My thoughts were putting in the following cards:

Exquisite Archangel Lich's Mirror Platinum Angel Transcendence Platinum Emperion Worship Resolute Archangel Solitary Confinement so its kinda like the lich deck I have but I was thinking about making it mono white with Kytheon, Hero of Akros at the helm to keep the gideon emblem in affect.

Real question is, what should the other 90 cards be? What tactic would you run in mono white to try and become immortal? Or should I splash in and put some combos like Teferi's Protection/Render Silent + Elite Arcanist and Silence/Orim's Chant + Isochron Scepter then shove Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir. Then counterspell for a good amount of the rest.


I could run solider tribal and stop combat damage with Knight-Captain of Eos and Holy Day affects. Then run anthem to boost them. Maybe a token strategy?


Throw damage back into their face kind of cards like Comeuppance/Shining Shoal/Divine Deflection/Deflecting Palm/Reflect Damage and use Stuffy Doll/Spitemare/Coalhauler Swine/Mogg Maniac with Pariah?

Or possibly hate bears? Grand Abolisher/Kataki, War's Wage and so on?

Need some ideas on how to be the best jerk that no one wants to play with lol

Magaan's Murder, Vona


Legendary Creature - Vampire Knight

Vigilance, lifelink

T, pay 7 life: Destroy target nonland permanent. Activate this ability only during your turn.

Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim and this guy is going to make a great perm destroy deck.

Also, I tried building something silly - thoughts? :)

chart a course looks like some great card draw. But yeah growing rites looks awesome and easy to flip. arguels blood fast is going right into lich.

The pseudo cradle is bonkers and very strong in Sisay cEDH. Lots of mana dorks...Search the pseudo cradle and cast to untap all nonlands. (Paradox Engine) Something Cradle wont be doing. Captain can find your 4 creatures if needed.Turning the cradle even ramps you as it doesnt count for the 1 land rule. I did not expect them to print something like this.

September 7, 2017 5:51 p.m.

Rzepkanut says... #45

I still can't believe it's real. A new cradle for everyone. The world rejoices as one.

September 7, 2017 7:59 p.m.

PartyJ says... #46

One thing I read too fast, it does only trigger at the end of the turn, so you can't use it straight away. Nevertheless its an interesting card to play with.

September 8, 2017 2:41 a.m.

Zimmers_0 says... #47

Vraska, Relic Seeker is great! Also anyone else see that Mana Drain got a reprint?

September 8, 2017 12:36 p.m.

Rzepkanut says... #48

Yeah im kinda shocked...too bad OG Mana Drain art is way better, would love to see that artwork in a foil.

All of the flipping cards in this set are awesome. Big fan of the new counter spell as well.

enter image description here

Not so much about the new red enchantment.

enter image description here

Back to shafting red again. Nothing to see here.

September 11, 2017 12:55 p.m.

Daedalus19876 says... #51

Zimmers_0: The new counterspell is much like Plasm Capture. Or, you know, Mana Drain, which is getting reprinted in Iconic Masters haha.

Trove of Temptation is weird. I kinda want to run it with No Mercy to turn it into a bad The Abyss...

September 11, 2017 2:20 p.m.

Zimmers_0 says... #52

Daedalus19876 It would work pretty good in a O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami deck but I like your no mercy idea. I just dont think taking a hit is worth the 1 mana. Also Spell Swindle is way better than Plasm Capture. You get to use that mana whenever. Not just the next turn.

September 11, 2017 4:43 p.m.

TheRedGoat says... #53

So, as far as that red enchantment above goes, it likely is made as a "trap build" card, because there is a black enchantment at 5 mana Wotc spoiled that lets you just win the game when you have like 10 treasures. However I can see a rather off the wall grixis build that works along the lines of a "reverse Zedruu" deck that actively plays chaotic and/or board altering cards in tandem with specific types of control effects as a test in the politics of EDH. It likely would run many other cards that seem to give away advantage, or force cards to be played against you, but you would supplement those cards with punisher/prison type of effects that boils the deck down to exactly that; A chaos prison build that generates creatures for opponents, only to force them to fight each other through self protection/hex-proofing and turns the entire EDH political landscape into that of a gladiatorial arena for your own amusement! BWAHAHAHAHAHAH!


Incidentally this is actually probably better run as Mardu with Mathas, Fiend Seeker at the helm to further reward the players that provide you with entertainment. That all further segways into how I was meaning to suggest somebody try out Mairsil, the Pretender as a stand-in for either Inspector Gadget or Doctor Claw. I'll leave it up to the discretion of whomever knows the characters best to tell me that doesn't sound like the perfect analogy, but if not I'd love to lend a hand in making said deck.

September 11, 2017 6:16 p.m.

Daedalus19876 says... #54

TheRedGoat: I might try Queen Marchesa for that strategy TBH, with Mathas, Fiend Seeker in the 99. Her ability seems much more relevant for a deck centered in that way.

September 11, 2017 8:28 p.m.

enpc says... #55

The best strategy with Mathas, Fiend Seeker is to run him in a 4-5 colour deck with Leech Bonder. Then you make a bunch of creature tokens and use mathas's ability to put a bounty counter on an enemy creature, move the token to your creature with Leech Bonder, proliferate the crap out of the bounty counters, redistribute them to all your creature tokens and the sac the tokens, making each opponnet deck themselves as Mathas, Fiend Seeker's ability is a must.

totally legit the best way to play him.

Well boys...Spent about 65 bucks. (Also finished my set of Grixis Shock Lands!) But I have my new project regardless of it's actual effectiveness. Saddle up boys!

Here we go boys!

So what are y'all's favorite decks? The ones you get the most joy from playing?

I can't decide between Avacyn, Hapatra, or Locust God. My other decks have taken a backseat TBH.

September 13, 2017 12:33 a.m.

Rzepkanut says... #59

It's a tricky question... I think I get the most joy from playing my Rashmi deck online against random strangers. Because it wins all the time...and by huge margins of card and board advantage.

When I play in real life with my friends, since I have 18 decks built currently, I mostly enjoy playing whatever deck is newest to me. For me it's fun to be able to switch decks and always have another good deck to switch to all the time.

Technically my Mazirek and Kraj decks are probably my two favorite to play right now, but they also happen to be 2 of my newest decks. However I do enjoy that they are both capable of being extremely powerful but also kind of weird and underpowered simultaneously. Building generic good stuff and format staple filled decks with Tier 1 Commanders is less exciting creatively for me as a deck builder and less exciting strategically as a player to pilot. I enjoy the challenge of winning with potentially unknown and weird cards and I'm addicted to deck building, I don't use proxy cards, and I don't often break up decks. Its possible that these preferences are shared amongst my play group to some extent and so we play decks like them vs each other a lot.

So out of the 3 you mentioned I personally would have the most fun with Hapatra because her decks tend to be filled with weird -1/-1 counter synergy cards that you can't use anywhere else. That said Hapatra decks kinda build themselves as a result, but they are pretty cool and powerful. The Locust God decks I've seen are cool and medium powered and kinda predictable. Avacyn is just busted all over and needs little help to be unfair. I'd be able to play it online more often than in person I expect. I'm sure that all three would be fun to play in the right meta.

I have been loving Naheb the Eternal lately. Getting multiple 3 and 4 way ties a lot recently is incredibly satisfying for some reason.

September 13, 2017 3:44 p.m.

n0bunga says... #61

Gitrog is still a lot of fun for me competitively, but I have loved brewing Neheb the Eternal and piloting it it really is a heck of a lot of fun.

My new dream in EDH: Use Enduring Ideal to fetch this:

then this

Result: straight-up murder one opponent, then draw cards equal to their life total.

Zimmers_0 says... #63

Makes me want to rebuild the lich deck in Esper with Zur the Enchanter or Oloro, Ageless Ascetic at the helm. Axis of Mortality is fantastic. So good for politics.

The flip cards from this set are also really good this time around.

So, how many people here have had the song "everybody walk the dinosaur" come into their mind at some point since the spoilers of Ixalan started?

September 14, 2017 8:19 p.m.

The deck I get the most fun out of playing is my BUG clone/steal tribal deck. Every game is always so different, and it's really fun to have 60+ tokens of Birds of Paradise.

September 14, 2017 8:24 p.m.

TheRedGoat not I. This though...

Came to mind for me :P

I've been popping in and out on T/O, I'm currently on my honeymoon! Even still I'm pondering an Edgar Markov deck...

September 14, 2017 11:02 p.m.

TheRedGoat says... #68

@n0bunga Well that was a drug trip and-a-half. Still, you're not going to forget something like that are you? Either way, what were you thinking for the Edgar deck? Are you just cutting out cards from the pre-con build or building from the commander up?

September 15, 2017 12:34 p.m.

n0bunga says... #69

TheRedGoat I think so! I'm mulling over a 1v1 deck with cheap Vamps or just straight up multiplayer nonsense.

I feel like Edgar has a good place in Duel Commander though.

Herrrrre we go.

Hahahahah I couldn't help myself to a little honeymoon brew :P

And thank you very much!!!! :)

I am officially back!

I know it feels like I've been gone for a long time.
