Azdranax Old Magus

Thanks to finding a small box of my original collection in storage several years ago (with cards dating back to Unlimited, all of which I thought I sold in 2000), I got sucked back into collecting and playing, and now have more EDH decks and modern/legacy cards than I know what to do with - my binder is just a small portion of my total collection at this point.

Other games will come and go, but reliving my high school and college days through Magic helps keep me young, and it's a hell of a lot easier on the body than baseball and basketball. If I can help you in any way, or if you are looking for trade pieces, feel free to reach out - I'm always up to something new these days.

If you’re looking for a powerful option that’s not necessarily fully optimized, might I suggest my build. It includes the turns combo, and paradox engine + buyback spells, which is very underrated, but also includes maralen of the mornsong + stranglehold, which is super fun to get onboard.

See if this is more to your taste and power level.

Although I typically play a more competitive meta and do not use the sad robot, I’m not sure I would even in a more casual meta due to a couple of factors. The first, and most important in my eyes, is the competing CMC with Meren. Unless you play sad robot ahead of curve, you’ll almost always want to play Meren instead. That leaves a turn 5 play or later, which often feels underwhelming compared to your opponents turn 5 plays. I think if Meren was a 5 CMC commander, sad robot would automatically feel more valuable as a result.

Second, sad robot is dependent on your board state, requiring a sac outlet to become a value engine of any kind. If you aren’t fortunate enough to have drawn into one at this point, he’s a nearly worthless board presence. In the majority of scenarios, you’d almost always prefer self-sacrifice options that impact the board state of your opponents, like spore frog, caustic caterpillar, fleshbag, merciless executioner, etc.

When you combine both of these issues, sad robot looks more like a win-more option with a great board state and a trying but failing to catch up option with a weak board state, neither of which will immediately effect your opponents. In most cases I’d rather just have a sign in blood or other lower CMC draw option.

Yeah, forgot that part, it’s six turns or commander CMC, whichever is higher.

In pods of 4 or more, you get a free scry at the beginning of a turn after you miss a land drop, unless it was an extra turn.
