CardTyrant Deckling

I have been playing MtG casually now for about 10+ years. My very first deck was a Myr artifact deck (in which we allowed the artifact lands to be like basic lands) but after a while I switched to Goblins. Once I moved, I started playing a Samurai deck. I still remember pulling a foil Konda from a booster pack.

My biggest hobby is constructing decks and helping others construct their deck. I don't play competitively very often, and to be honest, the thought of competitive play is a little intimidating to me when I've been use to casual play with friends.

My favorite format is EDH/Commander. I like Mono-Colored or Dual-Colored decks. Five Colored decks are alright too. I really like tribe EDH/Commander decks. My top favorite (six) tribes are Dinosaurs, Rats, Zombies, Dragons, Vampires, and Minotaurs.

baddkaarma, that is a very good question. I do not know. I know I am a member on PucaTrade (I pay to be on it), so I show up more so than a free member. I know when I send cards out I always send a letter thanking them for giving the cards a new home and if they have any of the following cards, I would be willing to give them a good home. Than of course I list cards I need. I am also active on their Discord and Twitter. So I got my name out there.

Hey man I love your Gishath deck, thank for the great ideas. Weird question, how do you get people to send you things on Pucatrade? I sent a lot of stuff out and have 11k points and a lot of things on my want list but can't get anyone to send anything?

Thanks for your help.

I originally had changelings in the deck, but I took them out for there are a lot of good dinosaurs. Berserkers' Onslaught might make it back into the deck too. I really like Double Strike.

I wanted it in there, but since all my enraged triggers only do 1 damage to my creatures, Temple Altisaur was up in the air. Than there was the issue of what to take out. I had to cut a lot of good dinosaurs with the release of Rivials. There are a lot of good dinosaurs.

A big part of being competitive is deck speed. I run 38 lands and all my lands come out untapped or have an ability that lets them come out untapped. That gives me a chance to do something right than and there.

I also run Urza's Incubator and Knight of the Stampede which lower the cost of my dinosaurs by . It really helps get Gishath out faster. That is the main goal of the deck is to slam Gishath out of the command zone and start beating people down her.

When it comes to ramping, I always run costing ramp spells that get me any kind of land, not just basic lands.

With Gishath's ability, it's good to have some kind of top deck manipulation. Scroll Rack, Sensei's Divining Top, Worldly Tutor, and Congregation at Dawn all allow you to manipulate the top card of your deck.

If you want anymore advice, let me know. Sorry if I'm a bit confusing. Just woke up. But that is how to make a good competitive deck. 38 lands that don't come out tapped for speed, low costing ramp spells that don't enter tapped, and top deck manipulation spells.
