Raging_Squiggle: Hey! Glad you could join us :)
There's nothing you "need" to do, but it would be nice for you to write a quick introduction about yourself on this page. Other than that, just feel free to look over and comment on some of the decks listed here, or post your own if you're looking for help or advice :)

Latest projects I'm working on, take a look if you guys have the chance!
April 29, 2017 3:10 p.m.
So many decks I need to go through when I have a few minutes...
April 30, 2017 1:08 p.m.
Anyone here currently free to play a few games online?

I was gone for a bit and return to a format where Leovold is now banned! Dammit! Now I need your help to build a new deck.
Using a copy of the old Leovold deck as a template with Damia as the new commander. Haven't had the time to really do any editing but your inputs on how to make a Damia with a stax flavour would really help.

With final exams and essays and projects, I'm basically going to disappear from this group (and website) until May 10th - see you all then!
May 1, 2017 5:07 p.m.
Good luck friend!
May we see you soon enough again :)
Don't fail the EDH exam :p , but I know that is already out of the question :P

Do you guys know if the 8x8 (sometimes 7x9 or 9x7) rule works out good? 8 categories with 8 cards filling those roles? Examples being Ramp, Tribal Staples, Draw, Reaction/Recover, Removal, etc.
I'm wondering about your experiences with it, if you've ever used it. Whether 6x10 works better for you for consistency reasons, or 6x8 with 3x4 to fit in some utility.
I'm currently working on my oldest project (reinvigorated due to Amonkhet) and I can't seem to make the hard cuts needed as I'm trying to do too many things at once (sitting at 15~ categories).
May 1, 2017 7 p.m.
Eiti3: there are 4 main categories in my mind: Win condition, card advantage/tutors, ramp and removal. Once you have these filled out with some redundancy in each (especailly the win condition), you can start adding more stuff if you have space. But things like a good ramp pacakge will usually eat up more that 8 cards. And especially if you're going beatdown, 8 cards is nowhere near enough. I would devote 15-20 cards there.
Also, runnign tribal staples for the sake that they're tribal is bad. Tribal in general is bad. Sure there are exceptions, but in general tribal should be near the bottom of the the food chain. If you can get a bit of extra value from swapping a card from a non elf to an identical in functionality elf card so you can get a bit of extra value from Priest of Titania, sure, but this should be done during the optimisation process of the deck.
May 1, 2017 8:42 p.m.
Hmm, I should've maybe meant 'Tribal Staples' as more of 'Theme/Gimmick Staples' - I always play with some sort of Theme or Gimmick. Although, I do see where you are coming from and I will definitely think this over.

The Deckwatch Strikes:
Story time kids: I'm at my local LGS for Commander Tuesdays! A group I really enjoy playing with. I sat down to a game with my friend James and his Nin, the Pain Artist Coin Flip Chaos deck. There's this girl Molly there who we know who pulls out her new Xenagos, God of Revels deck and I pulled out The Dead Don't Shuffle, They Deck Themselves for fun. This other kid about 16 sits down and asks if he can cut in. His commander was a foil Sliver Overlord being a pleasant community, in general, we told him to play. We quickly realized, he had foiled out the entire deck and had OG Dual lands. Okay...So in my opener I keep Swamp x 2 Diregraf Captain, Talisman of Dominance, Graf Harvest, and Temple of Deceit. Turn one I play Temple of Deceit scry and see Danny Devito aka Fleshbag Marauder awesome. Keep that on top, we can use it to deal with the incoming sliver infestation.
What transpires is a combination of Noxious Ghoul Fleshbag Marauder Gravecrawler and Gisa and Geralf keeping the board relatively clear... And the salt begins to get real over by the sliver player. "BULLSHIT! IN 100 CARD DECK YOU DON'T JUST FIND COMBOS LIKE THAT! BULLSHIT! YOU'RE A CHEATER." What followed was such a salt-ridden tirade of profanity (He used some choice words including the N C and of course MF''er at me and threatened to F my mom...) that this kid had to be removed from my LGS by the owner. I...Don't know whether to be proud for flouncing what was so obviously a deck that had waaaay too much money spent on it, be amused by some of the things that were said by this obviously upset kid when I did nothing. Be sad that the state of our game produces players like this...Or a little bit of all three. In the end, my friend James, Molly, and I kinda laughed it off. but it was a story I just had to share here since some of you have helped me work on the deck. I thought maybe you would appreciate it...Marvel at it? I don't know. Definitely an unforgettable EDH game.
May 2, 2017 10:21 p.m.
Aw man, that's interesting.
I mean, not all magic-playing kids are like that, but there are some (and adults). Good thing you laughed it off, that seems like a situation where humor is key.
May 4, 2017 8:54 a.m.
As a new creator of a deck built around salt, my general approves of this story.
May 4, 2017 9:08 a.m.
Had one moment to stop by between projects - my preordered Entomb masterpiece just arrived, and I'm trying to find a deck to stick it in. Maybe Alesha, Who Smiles at Death? Preferably a female or genderless commander just to keep the accidental theme up.
May 6, 2017 3:13 a.m.
Alesha would love that. Tutor exactly what you want to reanimate.
May 6, 2017 5:45 p.m.
Deckwatch friends! I threw this deck together, it's mostly mono-black goodstuff for a mono-colored tournament my friends and I are having. As you can see I need to cut 12 cards. The game plan right now is.
Big mana for big drains, demons that fly around and go beatsticks, or tutoring up a combination of Ashnod's Altar + Nim Deathmantle + Either grave titan or Abhorrent Overlord for the infinite zombies or harpies win.
May 7, 2017 3:20 a.m.
I need help cutting 13 cards...Particularly tagging n0bunga for his experiences with Alesha :)

...and yes, I'm still on my magic hiatus due to finals.
You never saw me disappears mysteriously

So, quick poll, what're peoples' thoughts on burn in EDH? specifically cards like Lightning Bolt and even Combust. Do you think they have a place in decks (more looking on the cEDH side of things). I do know that Fire Covenant is quickly becoming a fvourite of a lot of players.
May 8, 2017 1:03 a.m.
May 8, 2017 1:38 a.m.
In non budget lists lightning bolt is a great finisher for infinite mana timetwister loops in Thrasios or imprinted on isochron scepter with paradox engine in play. It is also solid removal spell. I would probaly avoid it outside such situations though. Fire covenant is the best board wipe in cEDH.
May 8, 2017 8:16 p.m.
I do like that Lightning Bolt can be your win condition. I also just ordered 4x Fire Covenant so I'm looking forward to using them once they arrive (though they're coming from the States so it will probably take a while).
Also, I did a thing:
Commander / EDH*
It's basically a casual Food Chainless FCT deck.
May 9, 2017 7:49 p.m.
enpc, Nice! That deck looks fun. If I had the cards for it I would be building it to help test it.
Anyone want to help me put together an EDH deck for Ghave, Guru of Spores? I realized last night that I already have a lot of the cards for the deck, and I'm saving up my money currently. No suggesting Doubling Season. Otherwise, anything should be fine.
Looking for it to be a fun deck that doesn't focus around infinite combos. I don't know if any of you have any experiences building Ghave or with token/counter decks, so I'm hoping you guys have the knowledge.
May 9, 2017 10 p.m.
Well I've gone and done it.
Commander / EDH
It's a Show
May 12, 2017 10:53 a.m.
I'll take some time tonight/tomorrow to look over the backlog here.
What's everyone been up to (magic-wise and otherwise) for the last few weeks?
I spent some time today and revised my old Sidisi, Brood Tyrant deck - anyone want to take a look with the revisions? :)

Been playing Selvala, Explorer Returned Elfball. I really enjoy it.
May 14, 2017 8:59 p.m.
This page seems dead and this saddens me. Is it just me, or is T/O very quiet these last few weeks?
May 21, 2017 1:49 p.m.
I've been in the hospital, and doing finals and prepping for a Summer Masters Course. I haven't had a lot of time lol
May 21, 2017 1:56 p.m.
Casey4321: In the hospital? What happened??
And I've been having Writer's Block when it comes to decks recently, which is why I haven't been super present.
May 21, 2017 2:03 p.m.
Finals are probably contributing to the inactivity.
As for me, I've been constructing a chicken coop.
May 21, 2017 3:45 p.m.
My bad y'all. I've been tinkering with Modern and Frontier decks outside of the EDH Thrasios/Ravos deck I posted here.
May 21, 2017 3:53 p.m.
I've been busy constructing a completely homebrew 5e D&D campaign as our regular game just wrapped up 2 weeks ago. I've been obsessing over it and haven't even been using all my deckcycles here :(
I'm sure it'll start picking up against once finals are done for both universities and schools, as well as the Hour of Devastation spoilers (cause I don't care for Iconic masters)
May 21, 2017 6:31 p.m.
Well I'm glad to hear you're all alive. I've been less involved with Magic lately just because I have a lot going on, but hopefully Hour of Devastation will get me back into the game.
Here's a freaky idea for a jank combo in EDH: Clone copying Linessa, Zephyr Mage, and using Tamiyo, the Moon Sage's ult to discard the original Linessa an infinite number of times, bouncing everything your opponents control. Then win with Storm Crow damage.

Daedalus19876 - making Grandeur viable im EDH XD I love it
May 21, 2017 8:15 p.m.
Sorry guys and gals (do we have any gals?),
I have been consumed in SBT. Just dropped my primer. Give it a looksie and appreciate perfection (not very humble brag lol). I promise now that my replacement for Leo (RIP; So sorry Megalomania for your loss, but hey brother BUG or BUGx is always viable, your investment is safe :-) is live I will be more of a team player and pay attention to tappedout. Mea Culpa!
May 21, 2017 9:26 p.m.
Every one has got these competitive commanders...I foiled out a Spider tribal EDH...
May 21, 2017 10:29 p.m.
Hey now it's foil, though. That's half way there to being competitive. :P

is probably my most competitive, but it doesn't have any of the necessary mana rocks or ABR lands.
May 21, 2017 10:47 p.m.
Lilbrudder daayyyum that is one fine lookon SBT list. Way more refined than my gimmicky one (which is sadly gone now, RIPin peace).
May 21, 2017 10:51 p.m.
Daedalus19876 has been trying to get me to do it for about a year. I finally got my hands on an SBT myself. Time to start building.

Some surprise leaks for Commander 2017!
Assuming these aren't fake, does anyone want to start building? :)
And the new tokens!
May 24, 2017 10:56 p.m.
Hey if they're catering to Dragons...Maybe we will get angels...
May 24, 2017 10:59 p.m.
Casey4321: The guy claims he's going to post the remaining legends soon (for the other decks). If these are real he's going to get in DEEP legal trouble for intellectual theft.
But while we have them we can speculate on how best to build them!
If only Wasitora were Naya colors she'd be perfect for Cat tribal...
May 24, 2017 11:04 p.m.
n0bunga: For nine mana and 5 colors he'd better be!
May 24, 2017 11:12 p.m.
I CALL UR-DRAGONsorry, just excited as hell. He looks amazing!
May 25, 2017 12:35 a.m.
May 25, 2017 12:37 a.m.
We should make our decks thematically connected in some war so that your scion (of the ur-dragon) deck is related to my ur-dragon deck. Eh?
May 25, 2017 12:45 a.m.
If Wasitora were white, I have such an interesting idea for how to build her. But she's not :/
May 25, 2017 2:25 a.m.
For 5 color creatures, O-Kagachi seems pretty underwhelming. Even with the threat of exile. The cat dragon tokens look like toothless ha
May 25, 2017 8:13 a.m.
Yeah, totally. An exile effect that depends on someone else attacking seems useless to me.
A 6 mana 6/6 flying trampler seems meh outside of all that. At that cost I'd just have nonsensical fun with Karona.
A scion is a descendant in a notable family, you guys could do father-son Two-Headed Dragon EDH :)
May 25, 2017 8:52 a.m.
n0bunga, you're a genius! However, I don't think my deck will be DBZ themed.
And yeah, there should totally be a two-headed giant game on Cockatrice, if you have it Daedalus19876.
May 25, 2017 9:03 a.m.
This was essentially the combo deck with the theme of MoltenSkittles representing his dragon fist attack :3.
But I can dig abstaining from DBZ. I know we can go deeper with dragons.
May 25, 2017 9:14 a.m.
How much do you guys know about the T/O community Discord server? there's a featured thread with the invite link, and it's a pretty good thing to have.
May 25, 2017 10:33 a.m.
I've never tried the T/O discord. I might have to follow that link.
And yes, I'm always, always down for 2-Headed-Giant EDH!
Also! A few new spoilers :)
May 25, 2017 12:39 p.m.
OH DAMNNNN AN ARTIFACT DRAGON THAT DOESN'T SUCK I'M IN LOVE
May 25, 2017 12:55 p.m.
It's pretty good, although its color identity lies in Rainbow if i'm not mistaken. automatically going in ur-dragon, but I assume it comes in the precon.
May 25, 2017 1:58 p.m.
Yeah for sure I'd see that as a 99.
I'd love to mess around with a token doubling idea.
May 25, 2017 2:45 p.m.

Got a link to this thread you speak of? :)

I only use it to share my newest decks for feedback. When it comes to deck philosophy and general discussion, I am far too introverted even for it being the internet.

Any suggestions for an attempt at Taigam, Ojutai Master? Exile and extra turns using rebound is the theme.
