Challenge: The Budget EDH Name Game

Posted on Jan. 12, 2018, 12:52 a.m. by SirFowler

Because of all these people, we have created a deck together. Here's the finished product. Not only that, but I am making this deck in real life once I have all the components together. I want to thank you all for participating. I hope to do something like this again. If anyone wants to play against this deck, I'll be on as SirFowler testing this out.

I feel lazy suggesting it, but I like how this will end: Sol Ring. I assume, also, that nonbasic lands should also be selected this way?

Gahiji, Honored One - we need some bigger beaters in here. I will try not to comment too often on this, but great idea! Ninja'd!

New one is Momir Vig, Simic Visionary.

Exotic Orchard.

I am curious as to what you are going to do for your manabase. I presume take the first 80 or so cards from this list, and supplement with a viable number of basics?

Terminate. Multicolor spells will work well with Ramos. Shame that isn't the commander..

Elvish Mystic

(I was considering saying Eater of Days, but I want to see this be a functional deck)

Cyclonic Rift is too much, sooooo.. Counterspell.

To add another commander staple: Lightning Greaves.

Whoa, this really escalated quickly. I left for about 5 minutes then came back to see all you wonderful people commenting. Cool. :)

And yes, I will gather all nonbasic lands mentioned until a certain number, not sure when though, then add some basics accordingly.

Alas, my posts did not want to refresh. Tarnished Citadel for some emergency mana-fixing.

Shivan Dragon. Gotta get some classics in here.

Solemn Simulacrum - dammit!

Null Rod then, given how few artifacts there are. Nonbo with Ramos but hey.

January 12, 2018 7:42 p.m.

SirFowler says... #38

Boza Unfortunately Null Rod costs over 20 bucks, so you'll have to suggest something else if you don't mind.

Are un-cards cool? If so, Over My Dead Bodies. Else, Ojutai Exemplars. Either way, next one's an S.

January 12, 2018 8:13 p.m.

cdkime says... #42

Song of the Dryads for some potent crippling of your opponents' commanders.

January 12, 2018 8:15 p.m.

SirFowler says... #43

In my play group, un cards are accepted to a certain extent, so I'll add it to shake things up a bit.

January 12, 2018 8:25 p.m.

SirFowler says... #44

I guess I can extend the budget of some cards by a dollar, but I really don't want to go beyond that. The song would be pretty potent in this type of deck, so I'll let it slide.

January 12, 2018 8:29 p.m.

SirFowler says... #45

I actually changed my mind about un-cards. I decided that I'd want this deck to viable as a legal deck just in case some people don't find them acceptable.

Sorry if I'm sounding picky, but I'm just kinda pumped about this deck. Not just because it's looking good, but because it's made by the people rather just myself. Ive kinda lost my original state of mind lately, so this is opening new doors for me.

January 12, 2018 8:39 p.m.

cdkime says... #46

Ah, my bad! I did not know Song of the Dryads had broken the 5 dollar point. I can pick another card if you wish.

January 12, 2018 8:46 p.m.

SirFowler says... #47

If you don't mind finding something else. If not, I'll see about getting one cheap.

January 12, 2018 9 p.m.

cdkime says... #48

At the risk of being boring and repeating a similar card to one I already said: Swiftfoot Boots. Solid card for commander, and it ends in an "S", in case anyone was already searching for the next card.

January 12, 2018 9:06 p.m.

SirFowler says... #49

Now since it ends in a 's', Boza's suggestion of Solemn Simulacrum can be added since both of the recent suggestions had to be revised.

Is this considered cheating? It's been on the list, but technically it was too late. Am I overthinking this too much? Am I going insane?
