AstroAA Deckling

Hey, I'm Astro. I play Magic to have fun and occasionally win. I solely play paper EDH; no MTGO for me.

I love Magic's art. Like, I freak out when I see a fancy card art I like and will often times ask to see a card just to look at the art. I also love foils and promos. Its gotten to the point where I'm fully willing to spend $10+ on a promo foil, instead of $.25 for a regular card. I will acquire that judge promo Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite someday!

I started playing MTG as a freshman in Highschool. My friends Tusco and ForceSymphony got me interested in the game and I haven't looked back. I initially played standard and casual, but then switched over to EDH and I love it. I took a break around the M15 to Magic Origins era, but came back with the release of Battle for Zendikar, and I fairly recently started playing regularly with the release of Commander 2016.

TheDevicer well I've taken what you said to heart, and am working on taking out cards that haven't impressed me and putting some more stax cards such as Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Sphere of Resistance, and Armageddon. I've also bumped the land count up to 30, and am now running Strip Mine, Tectonic Edge, and Ghost Quarter. I'll update the list later. Thank you again for your input!

skoobysnackz I am purposely avoiding tutors that put creatures directly onto the battlefield to get the trigger off of our general. That is why I'm not playing Chord of Calling and Green Sun's Zenith. As for the Avenger of Zendikar and Rampaging Baloths, I personally am not a fan of either of them; and in my meta, Avenger is one of those if it resolves, it's immediately answered with a Path to Exile or a Swords to Plowshares. As for my issue of having trouble in the midgame, I've pinpointed it to lack of enchantments that have an immediate presence or do something immediately. I'm testing Regal Force and Greater Good right now, and they are both promising. As for the Mirari's Wake, I'm not doing much swinging with the deck myself, and I'm primarily waiting for a Craterhoof Behemoth or Genesis Wave in order to win, so I don't think the +1/+1 effect will do much. Thank you very much though!

skoobysnackz yeah, one of the main problems I've been running into is lack of big impactful creatures to tutor with cards like Fauna Shaman and Survival of the Fittest. As for the choice between the mana doublers, I much prefer Mana Reflection due to it affecting creatures and rocks as well, both of which I run quite alot of in the deck and they go infinite with Paradox Engine quite a bit. Thank you very much!
