Arcaneful Deckling

Hey! I'm a pretty causal player who loves magic and is trying to start heading to FNMs.

Thanks for the list! Explore is an option I've been looking into. I may be changing colors though from black... maybe a blue green variant?

Thanks for the list! I'll definitely look into it. I have an old Hapatra EDH deck so it has a few of the cards that might cost abit more like Bontu's Last Reckoning and a few of the cards that cost around 50 cents.

I've been thinking that since Vraska is in such a weird space right now, maybe I should trade it in and make a deck in different colors?

Thanks for the detailed comment!

From what you're saying, do you think it'd be best to try and trade Vraska for some pieces of a standard deck instead? If green isn't strong with the Attune with Aether ban (to be fair I didn't look at recent bans) I may not play it. What would you say are the strongest color pairs currently? I think sticking to a color pair would make it easier on the mana base for the budget. Maybe not blue though. That seems like it involves A LOT of Search for Azcanta  Flip's...

Back on green however I do have 3 Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip if that's any good in standard. I could see that it is only an EDH playable card though.

Hey guys.

I used to be into standard and frontier and those formats awhile ago, they just fell out of favor with me since my old store was almost only commander players. I still love commander and it's still my favorite format, I just want to try and expand back into standard on a budget of around $50. Do I expect to win FNM? Heavens no. Do I expect to have fun? Yeah, I do. Like the title says I pulled a Vraska, Relic Seeker yesterday and would like to see what I could do with it. Is there a good budget Golgari list I can throw together? If not, would someone want to brew one up with me? Any advice is appreciated.

Hey all.

I've been currently working for a few days on a mono white control deck and as I was about to scrap it I decided maybe all I needed to do was splash a color. The deck has a good amount of equipment for a voltron element but that can be taken out. I decided to go selesnya control since the whole point of trying to make this deck was to step out of my comfort zone of blue. I think meeting it halfway and doing control would make this deck a top favorite of mine. Any recommendations on generals? I know Gaddock Teeg is gonna be high on peoples list but I'm looking for a less... obvious and hateful general that'll not get me hated off the table in under 2 minutes. Maybe an enchantress deck would be the best way to control the table?

EDIT: Decklist This is what I was working with originally with mono white. I decided a lot of the cards I needed like Land Tax were to darn expensive.

That's true. I do want a surprise or abit of a wacky factor. I guess an advantage would be more lifegain for the Aetherflux Reservoir... and the making them uncounterable could really lead to popping off. Can you think of any rituals in white though? I feel like there are some but they're just not coming to me.

Never thought of dropping red:

What are some of the advantages of doing that do you think? Azorius storm sounds like it could be quite interesting.

Yidris is pushing it for me. I can make a decent 3 color mana base on my budget (which I forgot to add to the question so I'll do that in a moment) so yeah... I also really like white in it (for some reason even unbeknownst to me) and would like to stay in jeskai.

Also not disdain for grixis just boredom. Theres no new territory to explore really.

January 12, 2018 11:03 a.m.


Currently I'm working on a storm deck and while it started out Izzet I eventually tried Grixis which I found there was little unexplored territory there. I wanna make a deck that makes people go "what does your deck do? What? With THAT commander"? But by this I mean I don't want something obvious but want something that does help the game plan in some way shape or form. So I came to Jeskai and thought that this was my favorite 3 color combo so maybe I should try and make storm work here! And with white and Aetherflux Reservoir it should be not to hard to win games. Here are the commander choices (BTW I don't like the partners all that much.)

Zedruu the Greathearted :

While an odd choice, she does give us constant life gain and card draw. Yes we have to give something to our opponents but since storm I thought maybe we can give them something such as a 0 costing artifact like Ornithopter? Might not work but we shall see.

Narset, Enlightened Master:

Okay so Im scared to run her. Her abilities work really well with storm, but she gets focused SO hard when you play her. I think maybe going under the radar abit would work better.

Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest:

This guy is interesting. With enough storm we can make him huge: making him another win con through commander dmg. I do feel like maybe he could easily be chumped blocked and provide little to nothing for the strategy besides a way to win (that is somewhat shaky)

Ruhan of the Fomori:

Uhmmmm... I mean I guess he could chunk people down and then we have an easier time with something like Grapeshot for the kill? I'm really unsure.

Numot, the Devastator:

Another interesting pick; putting others behind on lands so you can continue to ramp so you can cast all your spells for storm sounds interesting.

Any advice guys?

Said on How Well Would ......


Heres the links since I don't think theyre in the system yet. What do you guys think?

Honestly I'm thinking the Zealot will be amazing. More continual card draw! And if you have life a Bottle Gnomes you're gonna have a fun time with all the drawing you can do!

Tomb raider is more on the fence for me. I just cannot decide if the trigger is worth it to explore. And its keyword doesnt really help so thats out of the picture really for viability.
